I have to "second" HAMILTREEF's accolade to journalist, Jeff Kart

While the national mainstream media does a terrible job at 
just about everything these days, it is really great that local and regional 
journalists like Jeff are still around to carry forward traditional values of 
journalism with Jeff's particular specialty on covering the environment....notably 
for a newspaper, the Bay City Times, which seems to have a really great commitment
to doing so for the last several decades.

I've had numerous communication exchanges with Jeff and he is distinguished 
by how intensively he likes to engage the details of environmental issues 
he covers.   

Recently, Jeff and I had a long telephone conference having fun pouring over NASA
MODIS  satellite imagery of Saginaw Bay algae...that ultimately ended up on 
the front page in color of the Times.

I'm hoping that some students on EM will be inspired by his work and 
seek to follow in his footsteps...

Congratulations on your award, Jeff!!
