Robin Hood goes to Salem.

Robin Hood AKA State Representative Wingard takes a stand on poaching. Sherwood's State Representative Wingard actually sported a Robin Hood hat recently when he rose to speak about House Bill 3089, which imposes large fines for poaching in Oregon. According to his web site, "In the spirit of Sherwood's annual Robin Hood festival, Rep. Matt Wingard rose on the Floor last April to recall the story of Robin Hood, who was outlawed for poaching deer in the royal forest. Because the killing of the king's deer was considered treason, the fine was punishable by death." Representative Wingard actually opposes poaching, unlike Robin Hood. But then again, so do we. Be patient. The narrative will work itself out. AT RIGHT: Rep Wingard on the Floor of the Salem House, August.
