Slightly Off Topic

NOT OUR LOCAL CRISIS
Chetco Deadline Looms
really big fish at risk
 These Good Folks Released This Wild 20# Chetco Steelhead  
-------
.. We have a long association, (from our youth,) with the sea-run salmonids of the Southern Oregon Coast and the Northern California Coast.
.. One of the great Pacific Salmon, (and pretty good Steelhead,) rivers has recently been threatened by dredge mining activities.
.. A small group of friends of the Chetco River has brought about an administrative action that may soon be enacted.
.. The deadline for a signature by the United States Secretary of Interior is about a week away: July 31, 2013. The signature will place a five year withdrawal from new mining claims on this wild and scenic river.
.. You may want to read about the good folks that have worked hard to bring this about: HERE.  The link is always in our sidebar.
.. Just sayin'.
