    SHOUT OUT

    DEEP DIVE
    Involved Folks
    excellent resource
    WALLPAPER:  ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE
    -------  
    .. Quite a few years ago a festering sore gave birth to a full blown cancer in our neighborhood.
    GREAT DAY ON THE MADISON
    .. Powerful interests were worried about the infringement of the public on the perceived health of 'their' Madison River.
    .. As the festering sore was poked and prodded it drew the attention of both amateur witch doctors and official practitioners of the black arts.
    GREAT DAY ON THE MADISON
    .. Now the cancer is being probed by exploratory surgery in the operating theater of public participation.
    .. We direct your attention to MOLDY CHUM for a little note about the current condition of the patient and, a superlative resource for some excellent background reading - should you be interested in the state of the supposed treatment [LINK.]
    GREAT DAY ON THE MADISON
    .. We have watched this circus of involvement. It has become a display of good folks with good intentions and little expertise addressing a perceived problem.
    .. The problem is larger than has been stated by the vested interests. The aspects currently being addressed will eventually lead to more problems and certainly will anger most of those good folks.
    .. We should live so long as to see reservations and ticket takers on the Madison River. Shades of the Smith River.
    -----  
    GODDARD'S FINEST
    .. We're headed to the Notellum Backwater. A few of the neighbor kids have seen what appears to be the rare snow caddis hatch.
    .. We are skeptical -- But -- it's been known to happen during warm spells in the early Spring.
