I understand removing the rice and weeds in the target areas. And as we Aboriginals have discussed with you. We understand your fear of us not pulling the rice if you had allowed us to handle the duty of weed control on the lake aka Marsh. This habitat is sacred to us. Much like churches and military memorials are to most of the non natives involved with this simple issue.
We all want to work together yet because you do not trust us natives for what ever ignorant reason. We still are willing to give you our stewardship program for the rice and weed control. Which works with you for all our benefit without use of c emicals
Soon we will be submitting to your committee our written aquatic weed control program alternative which once it gets going will actually help boost economic growth esp in the summer.
We all can benefit from setting aside our personal feelings and working together.
Sincerely the respresntative of the opposition of your current weed control program appication your landowners submitted.

I totally understand concerns of not wanting wildlife, plant life etc to be effected or harmed in this process. However the Rice grass that is in this lake is not a natural part of this lake. It was added artificially by a homeowner at one time.

I also understand that there are those that come each end of summer to fall to harvest some of the rice. However the number that do is so small there is no large impact that cuts some of it back. Each year it creeps and takes away natural waterways, so much so that some areas cannot see anything but weeds and quite frankly a marsh/swamp situation.

To say "yet because you do not trust us natives for what ever ignorant reason" is the most ridiculous thing I have heard of late. That does not help with anything and for the most part most of us living on the lake itself consider the water sacred as well.

I am Native as well and hold all Life Sacred, but that to me has nothing to do with the price of eggs here. It is about keeping this lake healthy and a thriving part of the eco system. It is part of the Migration pattern for a lot of wildlife and is amazing and much respected by all of us that live here. I understand and sympathize with the concerns... but race is not an issue that will or will not keep this lake healthy.

Perhaps we should change the hunting and fishing rules, as I sit in my home each year and watch the birds fall from the sky each season, or fish being pulled form the lake by the fisherman... but it all part of keeping the lake healthy and from over population, yes? But life is Sacred... so should we stop this cycle as well? And no I am not being sarcastic, simply being realistic. This has been an issue for many years, and I for one am glad to see it is finally being addressed.

So yes Mr. Watts and Mr. Ireland whom I respect, as he is one who comes from the Oscoda, MI area each year to harvest the rice.. "We all can benefit from setting aside our personal feelings and working together."

But bottom line is the program they are utilizing at the moment seems to have been approved by the majority of home owners... and if allowed to begin to work in the controlling of the rice grass will prove to be a positive towards the continued health of Tawas Lake.

Respectfully to all those that have concerns,
K. Bertsch

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot
of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

Do you know any solutions to help stop content
from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
