Work on fish ladder could begin in year – Sunbury Daily Item tries to make it controversial

Work on fish ladder could begin in year » News » The Daily Item, Sunbury, PA.

It’s becoming a trend.  Dying newspapers drum up controversy at every corner to sell more papers and create more viewers.  Instead of interviewing any engineers or biologists, or showing any plans, or talking with fishermen upstream (who would benefit from migration), the entire article is devoted to talking to fishermen who wait for trapped and confused fish at the dam spillway.  Nice reporting.  Great benefit for the nation’s most endangered river.  Geesh.

For anyone not familiar with the site of the fish ladder (proposed), it’s at the left in this webcam – at the gravel jetty.

Note:  The article misspells fabridam throughout!
