Sample text

The people and the local bishops work out what different things might be allowed. If someone feels strongly about doing a certain thing, he just might move to a settlement that allows it. If a settlement does something that goes too far for other settlements, then it might be out of fellowship with the rest of us. That happens and has even caused splits and started new groups. People ask me all the time where these rules come from. There is no one expert to answer such a question. People look at us and see a group that does not change.

A warden just hates to think that his ethics and honor are compromised. Just hates to think that anyone would think that he’s anything but the straightest of arrow. How do we get the next generation to do the job if citizens get the idea that we’re on the same level as law enforcement in Cowpie Holler? You know, the law that winks at moonshining and brothels. That’s why we have statewide resource protection. Leave that job to locals, and pretty soon you got different rules for buddies, brothers-in-law, and the big fish in the village pond.

S. Fish and Wildlife Service brethren manage to remain dry in the storms of controversy. For all that, something about Wisconsin’s contentious resource conflicts and the Badger State’s gene pool of talented pilferers of fur, feather, and fin have made for enduring feuds and impressive lore. My personal association with this stalwart law-enforcement group spans over two decades of working for the labor union that represents them. During that time, I have had occasion, formally and informally, to learn of their triumphs and travails.
