It looks nOw as tho Mt Pisgah was a sure THING, BUT I get a smile when of all the things that different factions want. I am reminded of a dead horse laying out on the prarie and surrounded by vultures.

Motorcycle clubs want trails for their exclusive use. Horse people want trails for themselves. And there are bicyclists and hikers, arboretumists that want to have areas for planting and wild flowers enthusiasts who want areas reserved for undisturbed growth of wild flowers. There are older folks who want parts reserved for them.Day campers and overnight camper There are those who want the whole hill kept wild without trails and roads.

I have not seen yet any requests from moonshiners asking for reservations where they can pursue their activities undisturbed, but this may come up yet.

Am sure glad that I am not on the planing commission. Polly Pickle.

It is not easy for me to have to announce the passing of anyone, but to have to announce the loss to the Obsidians of a long time member, someone who has been so instrumental to the welfare of the Obsidians as Louie is most saddening.

Louie was made a Chief in 1930. Chief Paint Brush and took an active part over the years in all activities of the Club, leading trips, climbs,heading summer camps and in laying plans for an eventual lodge building.

Because of failing health a lot of the newer members did not know Louie very well but he will be missed by all, even those of you who did not know him because of all the things he did for the Club and what Obsidians meant to him. Good bye, Chief Paint Brush. We all miss you.
