Dear members:
	Our local newspaper printed an article today from the
associated press, with the above phrase included in the title.
Turns out that the Jacksonville (Oregon) Woodland Association
wants to prevent rezoning a mine to allow additional mining
for gold and sand.  The "rare red lily" is Fritillaria gentneri, which
is indeed rare and endangered--but not a lily of course.  It may
or may not be present on the property--no one has found any
recently, though they once were said to grow there.
