Thanks for help on Fegus County Rd. 606

It is unfortunate that I am unable to attend this (the 2008 annual membership) meeting, I so wanted to be there but circumstances that I have no control over have prevented me.

However, I thought that I would express to the members my heartfelt thanks for all the help and encouraging words, and the monetary donations to help with the legal costs of County Road 606.

To those who dare to stand up and fight for their rights to public access, I would say that above all things it is the research and organizing of the legal evidence that will prevail in the long haul. That is what won the battle for County Road 606!! To those of us that have the tools and the knowledge to use them for Public access problems give of your resources freely as much as possible, and always remember that in this battle you may suffer some loss for the Public good.

Write editorials, they do work, but beware that some may try to prevent you from expressing your freedom of speech; in short it will be difficult to express

Your thoughts when others are trying to go soft on County Officials, and restrain you from saying what truly needs to be said. Just tell the plain hard Truth and add some evidence to back it up, and you will eventually win the day!!
Thank you,

Tom & Sandra Apple
