      Thanks for the update. IMHO the government, at least at the Federal level is hopelessly corrupt and out of control. And I have little hope that that is going to change.

      Cascade Docks - Federal policy an invasive imposition on homeowners

      I would like to let the public know about another invasive and 
      ridiculous government proposal that will probably interest few people 
      even though it is a practice that is becoming more and more typical 
      of the increasing government interference in our lives and may 
      someday affect each one of us.

      The latest proposal: the Bureau of Reclamation (headed by Dirk 
      Kempthorne of the Department of Interior) wants to remove all private 
      docks from Cascade Reservoir. These docks have permits issued by the 
      B.O.R. and generate thousands of dollars annually. Under the 
      proposal, this revenue will be entirely lost, but I have yet to be 
      told what or who this propsal would benefit. However, as I 
      understand it, the huge proposed marina at Tamarack will be allowed 
      to stay. Hmm.

      The B.O.R. has graciously allowed the homeowners a comment period. 
      Do they expect all homeowners to say: Oh, yes, please make us remove 
      our docks that have cost us thousands of dollars?

      Is it any wonder that our confidence in government is at an all-time 
      low, and our politicians' approval ratings are the lowest ever 
      recorded?
