Last summer my sister Kip arrived for a visit with news from her doctor. "I've found," she told us, "that I am gluten intolerant and can no longer eat stuff made with wheat." Oh, oh. That turned out to be a problem. No more vodka martinis made with inexpensive vodka, which is distilled...

Viewpoint: An easy dam decision
Our community is currently faced with a big decision. A decision with a now four-year foundation of community stakeholder group discussions and one year of active community involvement. What we are faced with is actually an easy dam decision and an incredible opportunity.
