This issue of Headwaters' Forest News talks about how the environment was a major issue in the November elections; how dangers to fish, wildlife, and people are being ignored; and about the wonders of nature that are still being discovered. 

We all contribute to the climate of polarization and hatred when we stereotype our opponents. Stereotyping hurts. It's like wearing a shoe that's too small. It puts people in boxes; check one ... hippie, logger, yuppie, cowboy. Life just isn't that simple. In my view, everyone has legitimate concerns. We may think that others have the wrong information, and or that they have their priorities all screwed up. But deep down, underneath all that, there are the basic concerns common to each member of the human species...for their survival, for their family, and for their community.
