My heartiest congratulations to you young men! I did the same thing 48 years ago, and the things I learned served me well....still do, as a matter of fact, every time I head for the farm, hunt, fish, camp, or try to make a good decision about anything.

All of your projects were wonderful, but I must say I'm especially appreciative of Chad Voney who took care of some bush honeysuckle at Stephens Lake Park. This invasive plant has ruined Columbia's forests in spite of denials to the contrary and will continue doing so. Now, if only we could figure out a way to keep that honeysuckle seed bank from regenerating the plant! (Hint: Burning helps, Columbia!)

Really nice job....all of you. It's not a PC thing you did, but you should be proud and you WILL be pleased at how well the things you learned will serve you and your life.
