By the time bighorn sheep of the Swakane herd in Washington, go into rut next month, a nine-mile fence from Rocky Reach to Spencer Canyon on Highway 97A north of Wenatchee will be finished.

The "good ol' days" were tough on Colorado's wildlife. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, trout, deer, elk, bighorn sheep, wild turkey and many other wildlife species were nearly wiped out from Colorado because of human settlement activities and market hunting. Restaurants in the eastern United States served a "Taste of the West" with such dishes as prairie chicken consommé and roasted leg of elk. Market hunters earned $1.25 for a pair of mallards and up to $50 for a bison hide at a time when laborers were lucky to earn a dollar a day. More

Provisions within this bill would direct 80 percent of Gulf spill-related penalties paid under the Clean Water Act toward the long-term health of the Gulf region's coastal ecosystem and economies.
