Area representative’s attack on Conservation Department fails

By Bill Cooper
    Missouri State Representative Robert Ross, of District 142, which covers parts of the south-central counties of Howell, Phelps, Pulaski, and Phelps, has made it clear that he abhors the Missouri Department of Conservation. His stance seems especially strange in light of the fact that the area consists of beautiful country complete with rolling hills, and fabulous clear water streams. In a word, it’s an outdoorsman’s paradise.
