The LO/KPOJ "Lost Limerick Challenge"

This morning's Oregon news limericks, as written by me, read by quizmaster TJ of Loaded Orygun, and answered (usually) by Carl, Christine,and Paul on the KPOJ 620AM Morning Show, are posted at LO.

And once again we ended up with an extra limerick, so you can play along at home. Fill in the blank with the word or phrase from this week's Oregon news:

Like proverbial lions and lambs
The feuding sides joined in a plan.
The first steps were taken
In the great Klamath basin
To finally get rid of _________________.

(Answer in the Comments below, or in this week's Spanning the State.)

Answer: "the dams"

The story: It's the first break Klamath river salmon have caught in quite a while. Farmers, tribes, fishermen, and legislators finally came together on a House plan to put a surcharge on PacificCorp's customers' bill to pay for removing the four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath to restore the salmon runs. This doesn't mean the dams will definitely come down; it just means that, if they do come down, we'd know how it's going to be paid for.
