A HEARTFELT THANKSWe accidentally left Peggy Rosenberry off our list of contributors in the 2003 annual report. Peggy has been a subscriber for years, and a great supporter of our efforts. Many thanks, Peggy, and apologies for the omission.
FAMILIAR NAMESIf you thought that the writer who penned last issue’s cover story on the struggle over Idaho’s Owyhee Region seemed familiar, you were right. Robyn Morrison worked as HCN’s development director from 1999 and 2002. She created our development department from scratch, at a time when our expenses were quickly outgrowing our income, and spearheaded the Spreading the News Campaign, which brought in $1.2 million for our new media programs.
Robyn left the development department to research collaborative land-management efforts as part of a partnership between HCN and the Montana-based Red Lodge Clearinghouse. HCN is no longer affiliated with Red Lodge, though we continue to exchange ideas, and the clearinghouse continues to post our stories on its Web site. Robyn has moved on, working as a freelance writer, and doing a stint as director of our local environmental group, the Western Slope Environmental Resource Council. We’re sure you’ll be reading more of her stories in the future.
The author of this issue’s cover story, Rosemary Winters, may also be familiar. Rosemary, a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, started researching her story about Mormon environmentalists as an HCN intern last summer.
