Reclaim the Wreck

An important question comes to mind: "When you knew, what did you do?"

From the Herald Story - Viewer Discretion Advised

"The heavy net was hauled to shore, filled with flood debris: plant mulch, wood, deer droppings, sand and mud.

A dire problem began to become obvious.

Most of the inch-long bonytail chub were dead. So were the young suckers and non-native fish, including bullheads and smallmouth bass.

“They’ve been dead for a while,” Crockett observed. “There’s no color to them.”"

Schutzie is sad.

His Dolores, his first love, is all but dead.
A spirited vixen, full of laughter and life
Now but a ghost of her former self
Strangled in the name of progress
