Your efforts are part of MBBRP and will not be helping Dr. Glassberg.
Your work is pivital and there is no merger with NABA only an
alliance with Tropical Audubon and 2 other south Florida connections
to prevent duplication and getting in each other's way. We will pool
science resources and other things but we were and are and will
remain the prominent national and international group as befitting
our size and representation.You and your associates are playing a
pivital role in that. I do not break loyalities. If anyone can not
live with that so be it. Many people on this list (leps) are not on
Nature Potpourri. Dr. Coffy, while I was in a swamp feeding
mosquitoes and kissing politicans today made two posts to NP as well
as Ron Gratelle. Our policies are not changed only we have become
less bloodthirsty9as the mosquitoes were not). I am not merging with
NABA but working with some mebers as we have been doing all along.
My friend Dr. robert kelly was quite a sincere and good gentleman to
make the post he did considering the thinly veiled flames going his
way. I admire thsat and would admire a public apolofgy fromm
Glassberg and Alana to Anne. I have asthma and holding my breath is
Bob Parcelles, Jr.
The Miami Blue Butterfly Restoration Project, Project Manager (C2M)
and Director (TILLS).
PS: Howard Wolf one of the leading NABA Presidents and the Programs
Director of Clean Millennium Movement's Institute of Ecological amd
Environmental Studies has been serving onn the Steering and Oversight
Committee, NBBRP as one of 3 Vice-Chairs, Support and Liaison is
being replaced. My reasons are that he has received threatening
communications from NABA warning him to not be involved in this
project. We have been offered legal remedys which still stand.
however, howard is too important to the Nature coast and the
butterflys that live there. His chapter was visited by me on Sunday
and they support our efforts and ware serving. But Howard will now be
helping steve Ko,los set up about 6 research projects in concewrt
with USF, Smithsonian and Pinellas County Government. We will keep
thjis valued meber of OUR team busy, don't worry. jeff please get a
life and call of your dogs. Mine bite!
I hope all who want to be included ask for my and Anne's selection
into the list serve for internal activite. See Anne's early post.
I grow weary of this crap and will lose my temper very soon.
Bob I am sorry this seems to not rest. Perhaps I will take Joe's
council ans counsel. Ralph maybe you can call me also tonight!
