Charlie Potter begins this week’s show talking about the very serious issue of Kidney Disease that is plaguing the fish in the Yellowstone River.  He then breaks down the 1031 Land Exchange for listeners and what could happen if land owners stop selling their land to conservation groups due to a potential property tax fee.

In the second half of the show, Charlie remembers the life of Cookie the Cockatoo at Brookfield Zoo, who defied all odds before just passing away at the age of 83,  as he was one of the first animals at the zoo when it opened in 1934.  Cookie is now known as the longest living bird and shows that if treated properly, this bird, like others, can live a long life in captivity.

He closes out the show previewing next week’s show, focusing on the “abuse” of the Antiquities Act by President Obama.
