Op Ed by Charlie Walbridge on unexpected effects of Sequester

FYI - I just picked this up off another boater's FB feed. Charlie wrote about the effects of the sequester on Friends of the Cheat and others whose work depends on multiple funding sources. The piece is relevant to many rivers and efforts going on around the country.

This was originally published in the Sunday, March 24th edition of the Dominion Post in Morgantown.


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

Thanks for posting that. The FOC has done amazing things for that watershed, I was totally unaware that this funding was sequestered.

Not good news...I guess I'll wait for the water to run yellow again.
