I found this in our local paper this morning. I have met with Rep. Bob Allen, and he is taking this issue to the state capital this session. Please remember that the Endangered Speicies Act, (ESA) states that it is ILLEGAL to interfere in ANY WAY the migration pattern of any ENDANGERED SPECIES. And that is what we, (w/ Rep. Allen's help) are trying to do, is get the state and the Feds. to STOP interfereing with the MANATEE natural migration patterns, and have them migrate south for the winter. This will help ELIMINATE any cold stress related deaths, and for the life of me, I can't understand the STM Club and the FFWCC position of wanting to keep the discharges open to Manatees. Just stop and think about all the bacteria and chemicals that the Manatee is exposed to with these discharges? http://www.floridatoday.com/!NEWSROO...toryA9274A.htm
