and Adams counties last week
suggest a problem
I called around political-journalistic types and asked candidly if Krug were really this foolish to file a libel suit?
Yes, is the universal answer, and Krug reiterated his threats twice to me in emails, asking for retractions.
I told Krug in so many words that truth is a compelling defense against libel accusations, and laughed when I refused to retract the truth of Krug's sleazy lies.
Krug is panicked and his attack was foolish and revealing of his floundering campaign.
The significance of this matter is not just a corrupt politician trying to shut down a writer exposing Krug for what he is.
The critical nature of this issue, and why other politicians are getting panicked, came late this afternoon in an email from Nancy Koch with Protect Wood County and Its Neighbors.
Update: Blue green algae has been found at the 8th street intake to (L)ake Camelot. Adams County has taken sample(s), and is testing for dangerous toxicity, but the results will not be available by this weekend. It is recommended you keep children and pets out of the water on Lakes Camelot and Sherwood.Keep your children out of the water. That's what this issue is about.
Please, notify your friends and neighbors who do not have the internet.
Central Wisconsin Nature (Foundation). ... It was observed originally last week (8/19) and a sample taken showed under the microscope that it was a certain type of algae which sometimes may contain blue-green algae. Further testing was required to
determine if it was a type of toxic blue-green algae. When Reesa Evans went
to get additional samples on Mon 8/25, the suspicious algae had been
dispersed (probably by a combination of wind and the heavy downpour Monday
morning). No additional samples have been taken as nothing suspicious was
found on lower Camelot, in the channel or in upper Camelot by Reesa. The
cautionary signs that were posted at the county park and the 8th ave boat
landing last weekend have been removed. There seems to be no danger for
swimming at this time -- but, it's always advisable to be cautious if the
water is so green you can't see your feet in a foot of water or if the water
surface is very scummy.
