Jim Auchter just sent me this article about the Zebra Mussel infestation that was printed recently, in the Journal Sentinal. It's an excellent article about this terrible problem and how it starts from ocean-going vessels dumping their ballast water into the Great Lakes sytem. The kicker?? It's start off with an interview of a Lake Metonga vacationer who has cut their foot on this zebra mussel infested lake. And for those of you who don't know where Lake Metonga is, it's right in the next county, Crandon, WI. Give this article a read, particulary if you're interested in your property values, where your children or grandchildren are swimming, and if you DON"T think that Invasive Species are a problem way up here in the north. Just click on the link and it should get you right to the article.
Thanks Jim for bringing it to my attention.
