    Come on you trollers, lurkers, and naysayers. I don't see anything at all in H.C.R. 26 about Parker's dream nor is there an economic impact to the taxpayers at this time. H.C.R. 26 is all about cleaning up Utah Lake ... something that should have been a priority decades ago. We Utahans pride ourselves in voluntarism and rush to all ends of the Earth to prove it. We should look inward more often and while we are setting out to kick out the "Goodfellas" and clean up inappropriate, shameful, and corrupt conduct in our Utah government and companion corporations, we could also work shoulder to shoulder to help rid Utah Lake of similar invasive species and putrid effluent.

    While the "Goodfellas" gleefully dally on their playgrounds with UTA, USTAR, Utopia, Utah Capital Investment (Fund of Funds), LPP, UCA, URS, DABC, ULCT, et. al., why couldn't there finally be formed a legitimate Utah Lake Conservancy modeled after "The Ocean Conservancy" or the "Great Lakes Conservancy"?

    I say, "Drive on and dream Parker" just as long as you can steer clear of Utah's "Goodfellas."

    Major problems with our two super shallow lakes will require major solutions.

    Here's a proposed solution to match our mountainous problem with Utah Lake.

    This set of solutions for Utah Lake will also deal with fish habitat, phragmites..[permanently], algal bloom, and general lake health.

    This also revives the commuter bridge across the lake idea. That grand notion died with the elimination of congestion between Redwood Road and I-15 attending the completion of the Pioneer Crossing arterial and the 1200 N. freeway link.

    Get lots of input ...[buy-in]...from the best engineers and scientists and clearest thinking business people available.

    More power to you and good luck.
