Decisions...

Good evening,
The Federal Government filed a motion to "stay" the District Courts injunction allowing the U.S.A.C.E. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to go ahead with dam spills as sited in NOAA's 2000 report on hydro opperations, but it was turned down with no reason spelled out.
The Ninth Circut denied the stay, but will hear the appeal of Judge James A. Redden's decission of last week. The Spills are scheduled to go into opperation on Tuesday of next week (6/21/05)
Power Administration officals said that they stand to loose $60+ Million in power revenue if the spills happen as planned.

In another related story, none of the 16 threatened Wrest Coast Salmon runs will come off the Endangered Species List. That is the conclusion of a Status Review over the last 3 years that was forced by court cases involving developers and farmers. Bottom line is that Wild Salmon and Anadromous Trout Species need these protections. The 10 Steelhead runs and the Oregon Costal Coho Salmon are and will continue to be monitored.
We have come a long way from the delisting petitions of early 2000, but it has been a positive step forward for the fish. In reviewing some of the story's and articles writen about this subject over the last few years, it's great to see so many passionate people involved in this enormous effort.

Thanks!
Deerhawk
