Columns always welcome

CambriaJuly 9, 2014 

Wayne Shaw’s Fish Report and Kathe Tanner’s Slice of Life in The Tribune always bring treats to the breakfast table. Columns on July 3 were nourishing as usual.

Reading Mr. Shaw’s recollections of learning to fish brought back memories of fishing for spoonbilled catfish in the Missouri River, bullheads in the James River and pike far north in Lake Winnipegosis. Every Fish Report teaches about fishing and ecosystems.

Ms. Tanner’s “Traditions and mirth for nation’s birth” astutely posed connections between water and the creation of democracy locally. Drought isn’t a laughing matter, but recalling hilarious experiences can increase respect for water. Maybe Cambria will finally post a sign. Ocean, river, lake, groundwater, park — I thank The Tribune for publishing columnists who pay adept attention to these dimensions of life.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
