a lot of people in here should attend to educate themselves on Riverlink's goals and how they are funded.

I for one, dont need to hear a "dam" thing from River Link - They need to hear from myself & the good working people of WNC.

They dont deserve the right to have the first word, they need to sit their with their tag between their leggs & listen.

If you dont agree with the crap they are putting out then go attend this so called fourm. If you fail to attend, then dont cry about anything
the tree huggers might do in 2008.

They are a disgrace & they offend the locals.

I will bet you, River Link will limit this fourm if they see the locals come in & attempt to speak.

I agree totally....look at the other meeting on Jan 17th....they scheduled it for an hour...

They will talk for 55 minutes and then try and let us discuss something for 5 minutes?

These people are dictators

THEY will tell us WHAT is good for OUR community!

No kidding! If they really cared about hearing from the public, they would have scheduled a better time.

8 am is for retirees and folks who don't work or perhaps just getting off work from a 12 hour night shift---not good odds for the general public!

It appears that they want this to be a one sided meeting so that they can say that they have little to no opposition

So I ask again- why is the riverlink gang so concerned about the low water levels in the river? Is is harder for those witches to have their ceremonies beside a dry riverbed?
