A dam on the Little Black River that forms Sunday Lake in Wakefield. After the dam, it is referred to as Planter Creek and eventually flows into Jackson Creek (which holds both brown and brook trout). I am always fascinated with our geography and geology and the natural order of things. I wish we had a President that was too (so that our grandchildren will have the same outdoor opportunities). In my worst nightmare, I never dreamed that the EPA would be reduced to a underfunded skeleton of what it was under all previous administrations since its inception. Perhaps Earth day will be replaced with Coal or Carcinogen Day.

β€œin the heat of unprecedented technological breakthroughs it is easy to think that we are invincible, like gods who would rule the world. But none of us need be reminded that the future of our planet is being held hostage by our own cleverness, with nuclear physics, chemistry, agribusiness, mineral exploration, and bioengineering threatening our biosphere in ways we could never have imagined even twenty years ago.”
