State on brink of losing its treasures

Published September 21, 2007 (Editorial)
In the several years that I have been here (traveling, swimming, kayaking back waterways), I have been astonished at both the natural beauty in the state and the dire lack of oversight, enforcement and adequate protective legislation.

Go to famous Silver Springs and you won't see a fraction of the fish you once did. The same now faces such treasures as Juniper Spring, Salt Spring, Alexander Spring, Blue Spring, Lake George, and many other systems.
