The IEC was pretty much Idaho’s original environmental group-

Rocky Barker wrote today about the IEC putting out their last newsletter.

Jerry Jayne, who was the primary person keeping the IEC going  in recent years, was probably the first Idaho environmentalist I met. His dogged and unheralded work over many years should be recognized.

He certainly taught me a lot, and especially not to stop fighting the bastards!  Thanks so much Jerry!

    Ralph – this makes “wolves.wordpress.com” more important than ever as you continue to inform people about the environmental issues in Idaho. I hope Jerry will continue to advocate for the Idaho environment in other ways. As you said, you “can’t stop fighting the bastards!”

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
