I am a big fan of "Field Notes" by Barry Evans. In fact, as a retired person, I consider his column a part of my continuing education. His recent column ("Six Rivers (By Any Other Name)," May 3) reminded me that Six Rivers Bank used to (maybe still does) give out these beautiful calendars with photographs of each of the six rivers. I carried one around for years until it finally went where old calendars go. We are lucky, we who live in this temperate rain forest, where some of our rivers are dam free and where most of our citizens are damn free.
