Dismissal of Scientists from EPA Panel Concerning
Absolutely spot on. “It’s critical that the EPA continues to use the highest quality research when making policy decisions, and the recent dismissal of these Members of the Board of Scientific Counselors is very concerning,” said Congresswoman Stefanik, in a letter to the EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt she signed with 71 other members of Congress concerning the recent dismissal of several members of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Board of Scientific Counselors.
Thanks to Rep. Elise Stefanik for speaking out.
We cannot stress it enough, if you are going to go on the water . . .
Challenging Conditions on the River
Conditions on the River Demand Attention, Courtesy and Knowledge When Boating
The River is very high right now and may be for the next few weeks.
Many of our neighbors, as well as many of us, have docks, boathouses and shoreline that are under water or threatened by the high water. It is also the case that the high water has brought more debris than usual into the River and many of its tributaries.
If you are on the water:
Pay Attention – there may be more debris than usual, either floating or partially submerged.
Be Courteous – slow down well before you approach a dock and much further from shore than you normally would. Any wake you throw is potentially going to cause damage to someone’s property.
Be Knowledgeable – for your safety and that of your passengers and others, know the water where you are boating. Shoals that are normally marked by this time each year, are likely not yet marked due to the difficulties our volunteers are having getting on the water. Also previously visible hazards may now be submerged. If you have any questions – get a chart and use it.
