    Letter to the Editor


    Liz Aicher, ecology volunteer, at her day job in Business Services In the March 16, 2001 issue of FERMINEWS, an article entitled Making the Cut highlighted the fascinating ecosystem work being done by Liz Aicher and others on the Fermilab site. Unfortunately, a few key facts about Liz were omitted. During normal business hours, Liz is a valuable employee of the Laboratory, working in the Property Office. One of her main duties is to administer the loans of physics equipment to facilities in foreign countries. It should also be noted that her efforts expended helping the ecosystem return to equilibrium are all done on her own time. We in Business Services are proud of all of Lizs accomplishments and commend her on taking such an active interest in this important endeavor.
