Chicago outdoors: Guys, gossip & gals

I looked off to the side at the press conference for fish kill in the Great Asian Carp Quest, and there he was.

Eddie Landmichl.

He’s the guy who, years ago, told officials that flooding on the Des Plaines would bypass the electric barrier.

And he was right. Something finally acknowledged last year, and a bid was made this year for a massive barrier to prevent Asian carp from getting through during high-water events.

Eddie had been the hospital for an extended stay, but he looked quite chipper this morning. But then he lives for stuff like this.
