The next thing to worry about

Sorry for the lack of blogging recently. The May "Sweeps" period is upon us. I know for most TV viewers it's a fun month with new episodes of their favorite shows. For those of us who work in TV, it's like a month long exam. So enough of the whining, on with the news.
Here's a new one for land trusts to worry about. Meth labs. According to the Daily Herald of Everett, WA the Cascade Land Conservancy is facing a $7,000 clean-up bill, after a Meth lab was discovered on conservancy property. The kicker? The Conservancy actually discovered the lab, called the police and even though a suspect (who is not connected with the conservancy) has been arrested, it's the conservancy that's being hit with the bill. Meth has become a huge problem across the country, and this is not going to be the last time that a lab pops up on protected land.
And there's a job opening in Florida that pays pretty well. The president of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Kathy Prosser is stepping down to join her new husband in Colorado. Prosser has been the President and CEO of the Naples based group for 5 years. According to the article, she's been making $160,000 a year. Get your resumes dusted off.....
