Equals my first stop motion video. I had a hard time getting it to upload for the net usable format so excuse any issues I may have had. A couple ways to view @ higher quality. YouTube version is better viewed at high quality (click here and then click view below the image on "watch in higher quality"). Alternately if you wish the Quick Time version can be seen by clicking here, it’s a L A R G E download but it’s better by far than You Tube.
I’d be embarassed to admit how many hours I played to get this all right:
What would I not do without You Tube? You can bet my blog would be a lot quieter! 🙂

This morning about 500 people showed up to the Channahon State Park rally. Mayor Joe Cook brought tears to my eyes with his statements of what this park meant to him growing up. I wish I would’ve brought my camera because the signs some of the kids made broke my heart. One that stood out for me: "Mr. Governor, don’t take my fishing spot!" 🙁
Please allow me to beg my faithful blog readers, especially those of you in Illinoise. Give the following peeps a call to show your support of the anti-state park closings:
Illinois Dept of Natural Resources, Chris McCleod 217-558-1540
Illinois Governor’s Office of Citizen Action 217-782-0244
Governor Rod Blagojevich (no prank phone calls please) 217-782-0244
You can also email from the Illinois State Governor’s site at http://www.illinois.gov/gov/contactthegovernor.cfm
In the next few days the Village of Channahon is going to have a nice long list of letters to customize for printing and sending out to the various state representatives. WE CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF ACTION, for not only Channahon State Park but all the other State Parks and Historic Sites. Keep in mind LINCOLN’S CABIN is going to go away too. What a travesty. I believe our children should be able to tie in history and with actual locations that our preserved. This is our legacy. If we don’t stand up for this, who will?
