Good news and bad new for the Everglades

I tend to avoid politically charged topics—emphasis here is on fishing—but when something affects my beloved Everglades, it gets my attention. The bad news first: Lowe’s is quietly trying to infringe upon the Glades UBD (Urban Development Boundary) to build a new store, and further south a group of developers wants to use protected land for a commercial park and thousands of new homes. Sadly, the greed of corrupt county commissioners makes both a distinct possibility. Some good news? Looks like the Everglades was just awarded $100 million in state allocation fees after an 11th hour change of heart. Here’s some additional info on the funding efforts behind Everglades restoration.

    thanks for the link to the Everglades restoration. I made some small sidebar graphics for the Acceler8 (Everglades project) website in the past. Keep up the good content.
