Attend on Sat., May 10th from 10-5:30pm - varied events and information by Friends of High Point.

Sierra Club press conference at 5pm to be by the monument. "Passive use" means no swimming or camping. etc.

NO Swimming in Lake Marcia is in force - lake was fenced off by May 4th and NO swimming signs are posted! It is a permanent '08 closure unless the State rescinds its direction to scale back.

This is an absolute outrage---of course old "High Speed" Korzine has no concern about the thousands upon thousands of "common folk" who love this park and enjoy its many offerings each summer. Why should he care-he can vacation anywhere he chooses on the planet - his wallet is well endowed. I find it to be sad that 4 million dollars per year from the parks earnings go into the vortex of a wasteful state budget that never gets its act together. More More More the coffers cry while citizens suffer yet another loss to their quality of life. These parks are more important now than ever since a lot of people who would have found their summer recreation perhaps out of state-- in light of the gas crunch had decided on doing something closer to home. Citizens of NJ ----blitz the office of the governor and demand an end to this ridiculous attempt to rob them of the proper use of High Point.

We should put Rendell and Korzine on the same boat, push it out to sea and shoot holes in it.
