    This destruction happens repeatedly and our wildlife habitat dwindles. We had the same (SAME) experience with Wetland destruction and the same News Reporter aired it back in November 2007. The County is aware, or they choose to not remember. The DEP involvement helped. A long and unresolved problem that only serves to verify that it's easy to "talk" environmental protection.....until it comes time to "back" that "talk". De ja vu - STOP THE DESTRUCTION.

    I am outraged that one individual can act so carelessly. I hope Mr. Maurer will be made to pay for his actions. Thank goodness for caring neighbors, or the damage would have been much worse.
