Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wanted to take this opportunity to let Enviro-Mich list participants
know about GLIN Daily News.    This is a single daily email message to which
you can s_bscr_be on Great Lakes news that is published by the
Great Lakes Information Network  [the technical internet services
providers to Enviro-Mich]  which is housed at the offices of the Great
Lakes Commission in Ann Arbor.

There is no better "current awareness" information
engine than GLIN Daily News for folks who care about
Great Lakes issues.   GLIN Daily News carries squibs about
media articles appearing in general media sources along with
the URLs to get at these stories.

Today's issue seems particularly interesting and I'm posting it
below to give you a sample of what this free list is like.   There
is also a searchable archive so you can look for past stories.

And while you are at it, don't forget to check out the general
Great Lakes Information Network web site at
http://www.great-lakes.net
This is THE pre-eminent source of information on the Great Lakes
with extensive content and links to other sources.

The GLIN Daily News for today is reprinted below for your
introduction to this information source.
