"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."~ Teddy Roosevelt

"Let us cross the river to the other side and rest beneath the shade of the trees." ~ Last words of Thomas Jonathan ''Stonewall' Jackson

Here are a couple allies that are not yet in the loop. Add the American Fly Fishing Trade Association and Outdoor Industry Association to the list of organizations that need to be contacted and added to the list. Someone is making a list, right?

I think this brings a new perspective to the issue and is a huge avenue to pursue. They can also bring the cash to the table in a way we can’t.

Admin Note - At Zboda's request the article on UT HB 141's impact on Utah Riparian Access was moved to its own thread. The thread is now in the "River Access and Alerts" forum.
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

The ballot initiative titles that have been filed for the 2010 ballot (deadline was today) should be listed at the link below. However, their log stops at 1:30 pm today, so the rest of the title filings might not be listed until Monday...these would be the ones referenced in the 9 news article from kayakfreakus. If I find more info I will post.
Proposed Initiatives - Colorado Department of State - Secretary of State

Seriously, all we need is Matt Stone and Trey Parker on our side. One episode of South Park could get us all the support we need! Imagine the animated version of Shaw

Yup, saw that this morning; was just going to post.

Ballot mania: Initiatives 67 - 86 by John Greg Leede; Initiatives 87 - 90 by Bob Hamel

Hearings by the title board are the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month. I think because of the timing on leg review and public review on all these they will have be heard on the 3rd Wednesday in April. The schedule will be established as they get closer to the date; you can listen online to the title board hearing, which is held at the Secretary of State's office.

The title board schedule will be posted here:

2009-2010 Agendas - Colorado Department of State - Secretary of State

Because 45 ballot titles were filed by the deadline yesterday, they may add extra hearings.
