"In Our View: Park volunteers show the right way"

In the flurry of busy-ness this past week as we've reopened after the Government Shutdown, I almost missed this wonderful editorial in the local Dispatch newspaper in Eatonville, Washington. Good work setting an awesome example, National Public Lands Day volunteers!

An excerpt:

"It’s ironic that just three days before partisan politics pushed the federal government into a shutdown that forced the closure of Mount Rainier National Park and associated economic impacts affecting the lives of furloughed workers and businesses with fewer potential customers, the place was imbued with a selflessness that our leaders in Washington, D.C. could learn from."
