In the news...again

Read an email that I wrote on behalf of Westmoreland that turned into an article on AllAboutArmonk.com.

So here's the story of how the article came to be:
Earlier this week I was browsing through the AllAboutArmonk site and came across a photo of a bobcat posted in the "Outdoors" section of the site. My initial excitement about the photo quickly faded after reading a sentence in the accompanying article suggesting that local residents should be concerned about the safety of their pets and small children.

The site's publisher graciously responded to my initial email in which I requested the sentence in question to be removed and/or replaced with a statement suggesting that the bobcat's presence is positive indicator of our local ecosystem's vitality. In her response she kindly asked for more information about why local citizens should not be concerned for their safety.

My response to her was subsequently recieved and posted as an article on the website. Please take a moment to read the article and search through the rest of the site when you get a chance, especially if you reside in the Armonk, NY area.
