ToDo Fishing/Snow Report
November 20, 2014
11-18-14 Outdoor Conditions Report Information compiled by Amber Travsky Fishing conditions It's that time of year when the open-water fishing season is getting its last gasp and the ski and snow sport season is just getting started. We are emerging, finally, from the deep freeze. While there is no heat wave in the forecast, at least temperatures will rise above freezing for the next few days. The only downside to the milder temperatures is that it will be breezy. The winds pick up on Saturday and keep up through the weekend. The best angling options would be low elevation waters that have either timber or terrain protection to get relief from the wind. There might be a bit of snow in the mountains, but it is expected to be mostly dry elsewhere. Ranking categories:

Written testimony of USSS Acting Director for a House Committee on the Judiciary hearing titled "Oversight of the United States Secret Service"
November 19, 2014
November 19, 2014 2141 Rayburn House Office Building Introduction Good morning, Chairman Goodlatte, Ranking Member Conyers and distinguished members of the Committee. Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today to discuss the United States Secret Service (Secret Service) in furtherance of your oversight responsibilities. On October 6, 2014, I embarked on the greatest endeavor of my professional career: the privilege to lead the exceptional men and women of the Secret Service through a challenging time in the agency's storied history. Returning to public service after beginning a successful and second career in the private sector was not an easy decision, but the call to restore operational excellence and public trust in the Secret Service was too urgent to ignore. The agency's integrated mission of protecting our nation's leaders and financial institutions from harm must, for the sake of our country, not fail. The Secret Service was founded in 1865 to protect the U.S. financial system from the counterfeiting of our national currency. Following the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, we were tasked with a second, higher profile mission: the protection of the President. Since that time, our integrated mission has expanded and evolved to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Dublin protests water charges
November 17, 2014
DUBLIN - It's a damp, dank morning, and Damien O'Neill has just been arrested for the sixth time.
