Good move on gillnets


I would like to thank Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber and Oregon citizens for removing the gillnets from the main stem channel of the lower Columbia River. This is an excellent initial phase.

Perhaps, Gov. Kitzhaber will come to Idaho and collaborate with Sen. Mike Crapo (assuming he can get a ride), the Corps of Engineers and the Port of Lewiston to remove the rest of the gillnets, sediment and the four Snake River dams.

After all, there is nothing better than collaboration to solve problems.
