I’m not going to beat around the bush. This column is right to the point. Well, at least my point, in my own mind. I do support the Coastal Conservation Association. I truly do believe the organization’s core purpose is legitimate — cue the collective sighs. But like any organization, whether it’s amateur boxing or underwater basket-weaving, various things can get in the way of good intentions. Politics and egos are pretty much inevitable in just about anything. If there was an organization that was immune to any flaws, and was completely legit, I would either like to be part of it, or run away from it as fast as I could.
The Peace River chapter of the CCA held its annual banquet last week. I attended. It was a good time. I did not run away. People were friendly, and it seemed they shared a collective respect for their area’s outdoors. But most importantly, the supporters and CCA committee members stressed the urgency of conserving and protecting the area’s natural resources. As it should be.
