Friends of Rice Lake news

Thu, October 07, 2010

We had a Friends of Rice Lake board meeting last night and have some good news to report.

For one thing, we now have 501c3 status thanks to the Illinois Conservation Foundation. So all of you out there who were waiting to make your $50,000 donations, you can now get full tax-deduction consideration.

Also, Brad Belser of Bradley Blinds confirmed he is donating a 12-foot goose pit to us for use at Double T State Fish and Wildlife Area. Plans now are to get the pit into the ground in advance of the Oct. 30 waterfowl season opener. We thank Brad for the donation and hope to get a few more pits into the ground to make hunting Double T easier and more comfortable.

Really, that’s the goal of Friends of Rice Lake: “To support, enhance and protect the Rice Lake, Banner Marsh and Double T state fish and wildlife areas.”

OK. You can start writing those big checks.


My worst fears realized

Wed, October 06, 2010

I just read a story in the Springfield State Journal-Register that basically encapsulated my worst fears in terms of being robbed. Here is the staggering news.

Gun, gin taken from home

Someone stole a 12-gauge shotgun, a digital camera and a half-gallon bottle of gin from a home in the 800 block of East Stanford Avenue Monday.

The burglary was discovered just after 7 p.m. The burglar apparently got into the home through a basement window.


Why no pictures of the day?

Tue, October 05, 2010

A reader e-mailed me the other day asking why I had not kept posting the pictures I was supposed to be taking every day.

Well, the reality of my life in the past few weeks has precluded me from taking a picture a day. Plus, I had to give the Journal Star back all the nice lenses they let me use.

So, until I can get my head above water (in terms of both time and money), I just can’t post many pictures.

Sorry. I really enjoyed posting pictures for nearly six months over on PSO. And I’d like to do something similar here at Heartland Outdoors once we get things under control.
