Re: E-M:/ Public comments

Speaking of public comments, if any of you in Lower Michigan like coming up
here to the U.P. for trout fishing, see my article on threat to the Gratiot
River from developer who wants to build a private bridge to access lakeshore
property he sold people with no legal access. The bridge would jeopardize
NAWCA funding (federal funds to preserve wetlands and habitat for waterfowl,
etc.) for projects in the Upper Peninsula. In fact, Keweenaw County would
have to give back NAWCA funds they received for a county park at the mouth
of the Gratiot River near Lake Superior where Trout Unlimited people have
been restoring coaster brook trout. Today is the last day for requesting
public hearing but you can still send comments to the DEQ even after today
to express opinions. See details in the article on www.keweenawnow.com and
contact info for the DEQ office. Thanks,
Michele Anderson, Editor and Publisher
