It was nice of Gov. Kim Reynolds to stop by Little Storm Lake on Wednesday to talk up water quality. We appreciate it. We wish she would champion the Department of Natural Resources and more funding for lakes. The day before, she was at the Farm Bureau building down there in West Des Moines talking with Senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley how awful the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule hanging over from the Obama Administration is. A “land grab.” An assault on farmers. They impressed that point on the new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, who would just as soon eliminate the agency. Certainly he could just do away with WOTUS with the stroke of a pen. Why waste more breath?
