    I am told he is excited about his new position with the hopes of really being able to get some things done...   Will have to wait this one out a little bit to see if he was actually "paid off"?
    I will wait to see how it plays out..... sometimes things that seem bad...are good...and vice versa.

    Many things to do.

    I believe there is a 10000 acre reservoir being built south of the lake for that purpose.  Water Infrastucture Act of 2018 signed late last year has funds for it.
    Lake Okeechobee is 450,000-470,000 acres. If it can’t hold all the water, what’s a 10,000 acre reservoir going to do other than make some corrupt politicians wealthier?
    It’s a phosphate sink.  Same premise as the STAs.

    Your grandchildren will live to see how continueing bad decisions, bad science, and greed finished killing the Everglades, where canals and compartmentalisation began it's demise. How's that for a prediction?

    I voted for Bill Nelson.
    I had hoped Rick Scott would disappear from public political involvement.
    Bill Nelson readily attended meetings with a conservation organization I was involved with.
    By pure chance and luck I shared a seat next to him on a flight from Miami to Jacksonville......wonderful rambling conversation, we talked guns too, his hunt gun preference.
    Senstor Nelson enjoyed favor with Florida’s marine industry.
    As time goes on, I will support a pro environment politician regardless of their position on past or future Bear Hunt. After all, any discussion of the merits of past or near future Bear Hunt must also acknowledge future development threats and measures to reliably preserve key Bear habitat.
    Bergeron’s District board position may or may not prove as an empowerment for viable Glades restoration. So many in the past that I helped to shower conservation awards on have proven, historically, of little use.
    Would be great to hear leaders refer to, quote Art Marshall.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    So you shower them with awards before they've done anything "of much use" and then, in the end, you're disappointed by their contributions? Maybe you should change strategies. That doesn't sound like a very effective approach.

    I would guess this point like many others in your life sailed so far over your head that those trying to make the other points saw the total futility in further discourse with you, as do I.

    Let me get this right....  I answered questions and did not actually give my opinion, and thats your response?    But I do agree with you.  If you dont like answers, bet to stop asking questions.

    There is one thing that I know Ron Bergeron will do......He will work to keep the water levels in the WCAs at a proper level and not drown out the animals as has been done so often in the past during rain events....BECAUSE OF THE US DEPT OF INTERIOR RESTRICTIONS ON FLOW SOUTH UNDER THE TAMIAMI TRAIL...Bergeron has "gone to Washington" at least three times I know of to help get a "deviation" increasing flows under the Trail during too high water in the WCAs, especially WCA 3.....Only up to 6000 cfs...BUT that at least stopped the increase in the depth....You may not like what Bergeron does...We certainly have had our differences on important subjects while he was FWC Commissioner....but, he will tell you where he stands and also respect your opinion....That is way too rare in the work I have been doing for about 15 years on these issues...

    Have known Ron Bergeron and worked with him on quite a few issues to benefit hunters/fishers etc. for many years and was very disappointed with his Bear vote and am just getting over that -  but in the end I do believe his desire to help our Glades a lot is 100% real and sincere. His voice will be critical and probably one of the most important to the survival of hunting as we have traditionally (Gladesman Style) down here.

    I hope you are correct.

    Type away.  I’m sure there’s someone here that will tell you how wrong you are.

    In fact it was not.
    confidence is what you experience prior to understanding.
    I in fact was the recipient of a Notable Award and basically soon altered my outlook and involvement. Shucks, If I in fact represent awArd winning capability, what does that indicate??😎

    He’s a sick greedy bassturd with an inversely proportional ego to his size.

    If we really want to start protecting out hunting quality, we need to realize that we aren't so different from the tree huggers.   They have mastered the art of moving political figures.  Some how we need their leverage.  Kind of like the Elves helping the Humans in Lord of the Rings.
