From the Portland Press Herald...

The Freshwater Update Column (Deirdre Fleming)...

"Fisheries meetings can be interesting and that was the case in the midcoast when IFW biologist Robert Van-Riper was updating locals on the need for culverts for improved fisheries habitat.

"It's kind of a necessary thing based on the discussions on where Maine's money is coming from: natural resource tourism," Van-Riper said.

"In the public meeting, a man from New Jersey asked why we don't stock walleye or pike. He said they love it in New Jersey. So I had to keep everyone else quiet, because at this point they're going to kill this guy. And I said, 'Quite honestly, you're probably the only one in this room who thought of New Jersey as a fishing destination.' That pretty much diffused the situation."

Now I'm stuck cleaning up the coffee from my nose and desk...CLASSIC!
