Dear Buddy:

In a recent telephone conversation, Roy Carriker indicated you were interested
in obtaining more detailed information concerning the Water School concept and
more specifically the Manatee County Extension Water School.

Attached for your information are several related documents used in our 1990
Manatee County Extension Water School. Together, they give a good overview of
what the School is all about.

It appears we are making progress in expanding the enrollment of Roy's water
policy in-service training program in Tallahassee in late March, thanks to
your efforts not only as to funding but also your personal visit to the IFAS
Vice President and Extension Dean.

Look forward to the next meeting of the Steering Committee March 15 in Ft.
Myers.

Sincerely,



Richard M. Aalberg
County Extension Director

Dear Camnunity Leader/Public Official:


The Manatee County Extension Service invites your participation in our 1990
TENI ION WWER SCOKL. The purpose of the Water School is to provide a
comprehensive overview of the water resource in Manatee County, highlighting
current issues, problems and opportunities. Our target audience for the Water
School includes those citizens who can influence public policy decisions on
water issues-public officials (elected and appointed) crmunity leaders,
media representatives and ordinary citizens with an interest in water-related
issues. The basic idea behind the Water School is that better public policy
decisions will be made if those making and influencing such decisions do so
from a sound, factual and objective knowledge base. We believe we have
designed an educational program which will achieve this goal.

This year's Extension Water School is scheduled for seven consecutive
Thursday's from April 19 through May 31, from 4:00 pn to 6:15 pn, plus a
full-day bus tour on Saturday, May 26. Our regular Thursday sessions will
be held in Kendrick Auditorium at the Agricultural Center/Fairgrounds
in Palmetto. The cost of the school is $40 per person.

The theme of this year's Water School will be: Growth and Our Water Resource,
Are They Canpatible? A major focus will be on water quality. We have
assembled a broad, diversified and well qualified "faculty" for this program
including local experts, SWFWM staff members, University of Florida faculty
and spokespersons for several local organizations and economic interests with
differing-and sometimes clashing-views on water issues and policy options.
Such is to be expected in this important public policy area where sound
decisions are not always easy nor are solutions always clear and simple.

We believe our 1990 Extension Water School will be informative and stimulating
to all participants. We hope you will be able to join us. The enclosed
program description provides more information and a convenient enrollment
form. Applications must be postmarked by April 3, 1990. If you can't join
with us this year, please feel free to pass the information on to someone who
might be interested.

Sincerely,



Richard M. Aalber
