Unique and rare, Hooven Bog is a portion of our county that might never have come to my attention except for the efforts of The Herald staff, notably Noah Haglund. He has done an excellent job of reporting the issues that arise when private property rights come into conflict with preservation of the environment. Can proper funding and compensation be found to satisfy all of those affected? This is a broader question, but it certainly is an important one in play over this particular acreage! I appreciate when the public is given insights into environmental challenges that lie in our own neighborhoods. We are the stewards of this county’s and this planet’s future. Nice to see journalism that brings that to the forefront!
