Thanks so much Stephanie,
    I'm on the same commission with John and the last meeting is the 16th.  Our chances of "persuading" DNR are slim and none as I see it but I am attaching the "white paper" I submitted to them for you.  We will need to go to the Governor -- and pray his "mute swan" ear is better than his black bear ear.  Take care, Joe
