I came upon this item which is a rather interesting time line, but it was lacking the attachments (has OCR errors)
It is fodder for a web page if someone wants to put one up, find and link the reference documents.
I would do it myself, but am a bit busy.
As a matter of fact, I could use help from people in the Pacific Northwest including Idaho, and any readers who live in Canada and are willing to send an email or two.
Much thanks for all who have helped in so many ways, particularly those who worked on the recent jury list.
