The undamming of America

So the headline of tonight’s post, is also the title of a book that I believe I read many years ago by Elizabeth Grossman. Ever since then, I’ve been a strong believer in the removal of dams.

That said, the article is entitled “How Long Before These Salmon Are Gone? ‘Maybe 20 Years’ by  over at the New York Times. Meanwhile, I just went ahead and requested the book again to see if it is indeed the one I read.

Flowing right along

Since we’re on the topic of water, I thought I would post this article on the Four Klamath River Dams in Oregon and California. I swear this story has been going on since I was at my previous library, over eleven years ago.

The article is entitled “Saving the Salmon: Feds, States, Tribes Ink Plan to Demolish Four Klamath River Dams by Terri Hansen over at Indian Country. Here’s hoping we see the fall of the dams very soon.

Kids stuff

These are just a couple of articles I’ve been hanging to about some  of the things my kids like.

First up, for the boys Evan & Julian we have “Old Railroad Trestle in St. Louis May Become a Park” by Cynthia Billhartz Gregorian at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The other article is for my daughter Gwen and it’s entitled “A Country Gone to the Wolves” by Patrick McGroarty at the Wall Street Journal.

Play on!
