Attached, as a WORD document, is
the December 2008 NARLO Monthly Newsletter. We recently
learned of a Washington State landowner, near the mouth of the Columbia
River, who has been under a vicious assault by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Department and two Non Governmental Organizations (NGO's), the Columbia Land
Trust and Ducks Unlimited. Our lead article describes some of what
this landowner has been through. The following link will give
you an idea of what this landowner and the other adjacent
landowners are up against. www.lcfrb.gen.wa.us
We hope you will find the lead
and other articles of direct interest.
We are providing the Newsletter a little early
this month, to give you the opportunity to read it over the long Thanksgiving

In addition, we would like to share a few
comments we have received to our numerous articles and essays that are reaching
a national audience.
"Ron, I just LOVE how you are able to put into words what
we are all feeling - I don't have that gift. And it *is* a gift! "
"That is one of the most moving and well written articles
I have ever seen. I have learned a great deal from reading your writings and
wish to express my appreciation for your works. You are a great patriotic
American who loves your country and the hard fought for freedoms it represents.
It's troubling to see the direction things are headed, the rural folk are
arming-up and the urban city folk are sucking-up. However your passion is
contagious and your efforts are making an important impact, I'm
"Your OpEd about 'Producers and Takers' and Icecream
Cones is well taken. I liked it very much. Keep up the good
"Great column. You hit the nail right on the
head. This is exactly what is coming. Those of us who carry the load will just
sit down and drop out of our responsibility. Why be responsible when you
can use other people's money (OPM)? Why struggle to get ahead when others
want to take it from you? Although I do not agree with Ayn Rand on
her vision of religion, Atlas Shrugged was and is a great book.
Capitalism keeps us free! Good job and keep up the
"Nothing more needs to be said. Ewart's article nails it, and
nails it well."
"Well written, Ron. I admire you for sticking to your
beliefs and carrying the fight."
"I hope that this finds you well. Allow me to congratulate you on a
fascinating website and what seems to be a powerful organisation. My name
is Finn Ballard and I am a doctoral student of Film and Television
Studies, from Ireland."
"I felt it necessary to thank you for your website and dedication to the
rural landowners. Six month ago I was not involved in anything like this. Your
information has been helpful and I love your article titled "RURAL LANDOWNERS
GETTING SCREWED BY THEIR CITY COUSINS" We can relate to your article here
in Tuscaloosa County Alabama."
"I just dug out your excellent "Warmed-over
environmentalism" treatise from December 2005. It's the best written
thing I've ever seen on the global warming issue, and I'd sure like to see
that it gets read more."
As always, if you would like a printed copy of
the newsletter, please send us an e-mail with your request.
Allow us at NARLO to wish each of you a pleasant
Thanksgiving day, because in spite of all the troubles we face, the American
people are among the most blessed on this planet. We have much to be
thankful for, but we have much to defend and fight for as well.
Thanks for supporting NARLO. We are
running quite low again and if any of you have the resources to help with our
efforts, it would be greatly appreciated. Our efforts are paying
