    So I would have told my brother to sell his stake in the company and not be a boob. The grant brings the manufacturing to the states in a economically depressed area.

    And next time post the article and not just a link. If you donít know just ask for help. We already know youíre a boob so donít be an ignorant boob. Itís unsophisticated

    Re: Salmon river news

    Probably a publicity stunt in regards to the "optics" aka local public perception of the Barclay family in general, and Will Barclay in particular. It sounds like the project will be built, grant or no grant. I don't follow the area politics closely but during election years I have seen Will's opponents run ads about how the river access was before the Douglaston run came to be, it's still a big deal up there.

    From what I understand H. Douglas used his influence to bring the hatchery to Altmar in the first place - I think he even owned the land it sits on now? - and although that in itself brought a lot of money to the area and helped a lot of people, he certainly lined his own pockets in the process.

    They'll probably play it off as saving the grant money to help out other local, start-up businesses.
