"Agent David Reilly said that there are thousands of sites like this around the county, remnants of decades-old forest practices for which the current landowners aren't to blame."
Mark Andre & the city attorney are targeting George Bush for this atrocity. A lawsuit will filed Monday morning.
Not the original porkchop. I am. Never would I be so presumptious to us a capital P. Just because I haven't been around is no reason to steal my handle.

Jacoby Creek in Northern California, not Southern Mississippi. If you were at all familiar with the area, you would know how much we used to failue our time spent loging in salmon and gulping down slugs of buttermilk.

Hoping you're not a troll so here's a serious question. Where do your "rights" end and mine begin?
Not disrespecting your rights. I'm arguing the financial aspect. I'm all for protecting the salmon and the spirit of the environmental law as it stands.
The problem is the open-ended cost of hiring council, contractors and satisfying a myriad of subjective permits which will likely bankrupt a small landowner, in a process that may never end. Therefore, it only makes financial sense for the state and large corporations (whomever can afford a large legal team,) to own land near waterways.

The ATTACK OF THE SILTY BANANA SLUGS IS UNDERWAY!!
Everyone living in the Jacoby Creek watershed, even the Old Timers, will be covered in silty slime by the Monday!! Beware of silty SLUG! If you see them they are big long and yellow with brown spots like a ripe banana. It is important to surround your walks and house perimeter with a line of rock salt to kill them if they try and attack you and your family. Thanks for the warning Times-Sub-Standard.

I respectuflly disagree. Owning property is not too expensive for the small guy if said person doesn't try to rape the land (system). Everything is "relavent". Getting a permit to harvest one tree will cost you the same or less than it'll cost sierra pacific to harvest that one tree. We as a society won't benefit from you cutting that one tree while if sierra pacific does it right we as a society will benefit.

It's all relevent.....

Is there any agency that wasn't called in to investigate? GASP....a landslide on a historic landslide after a good rain. Don't these people have anything better to do than call out every agency?
