Not sure when they finally put the article up, but here's The Advocate's story about the dumb-ass proposal from last night's council meeting. [link=(http://theadvocate.com/home/7828760-125/residency-requirement-would-limit-ebr)]LINK[/link]

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Recommendations for getting Deer Sausage made - Dorothy on 12/9/13 at 12:49 pm|
I know the admins are going to say keep it on the Food Board, but you might want to ask this on the Outdoor Board as well, maybe titling it "Where to get a deer processed?" and then ask specifically about sausage.
Oh, and you might want to lengthen your title here before this gets anchored.
