Pardon me while I don my 'Mr. Know-it-all' hat and argue that the wilderness pole, as described in Jed Buelow's piece, is actually crafted from a white pine tree - not a red pine as the article states. I'll even go out on a limb here (I know, I know - bad pun) and bet a Pine Tree Supper Club steak sandwich that I'm right. What say you, Jed?
ps- While I'm at it, how did 'loose' rather than lose make it past the proofreader last week (front page)?
When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.
