Pelican…6/6/08…

Judy Vik was very busy this issue….covering the gas port …and all that entails.. really great …substitutive reporting….

almost as many articles as the Futures on one issue…

1. Front page…presenting the company side… Calypso/Suez….with an inset alerting readers to the 6/11/08 LBTS commission meeting they will speak at…

2. continued on page 4…..with insight about the Coast Guards role…and terrorists…

3. Page…7& 9…The Dania Beach meeting and the opinions of State Rep. Bogdanoff…State Senator Atwater….County Comm. Keechl…..LBTS Vice Mayor McIntee….Fort Lauderdale Mayor Naugle….Capt. Schultz sector commander of the Coast Guard….all are leery of the project…and looking into expanding the input from officials….on the other side …a retired chemical engineer and environmental advocate…. and the dean of Nova University Oceanographic Center….who were in favor of the project…giving accolades to Suez….

Bcbythesea…….from this second article….it is imperative that equal time be given to the Suez company and those residents from the surrounding areas presenting scientific expertize and information ….to balance out any impassioned fears….and likely political pandering…which will be front and center this election season….
