Re: “Water Warrior: James Ehlers Is Lake Champlain's Loudest and Most Divisive Advocate

Ms. Flagg, a good article without fluff. Thank you for that. Mr. Ehlers has a passion for the lake. And many of us appreciate that. Yes, he may go a bit far on some points. To the main point for my response; In 1978 I worked for an agricultural supply company that specialized in farm manure management (storage and soil application) here in VT. Special funding from state and federal sources was available and programs to encourage farmers to enroll were initiated. Since then, I have seen one new non-profit "lake clean-up" group after another created and obtain funding for their agenda /purpose. Study after study...Report after report ..., doom, gloom and bloom! Millions upon millions have been spent and we seem to be worse off ! It would be interesting and very helpful to the general public if a "Sam Hemmingway" type research article as to :1 How many groups and agencies are presently in existence or involved in the "clean-up of the lake" and manage it. 2, How much money has been spent since 1978 to do it...with a breakdown of monies actually used in the field / farm VS. money spent used to administer, people, buildings vehicles etc. I think -I may be wrong -.that we will find it to be a pretty interesting article. Is Seven Days up to the task?
