Hell or High Water at Standing Rock, Colltalers

Most Americans spent Thanksgiving blissfully, which was great, but oblivious to what’s going on in North Dakota, which isn’t. There, 300 tribes of the sixth-largest Native American reservation, are blocking construction of a pipeline that may poison the entire region’s water.
About 4,000 supporters are congregated in the area, and tensions with law enforcement are rising. Despite freezing temperatures, on Nov. 20th, police doused protesters with water canons, causing injuries, and was accused of throwing a grenade that blew up an activist’s arm.
Making matters worst, on Friday the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has told the Standing Rock Sioux that from Dec. 5 on, it’ll block access to the area north of the Cannonball River, which it claims to be ‘Corps-managed land, so ‘to prevent death, illness, or serious injury to inhabitants,’ due to harsh winter conditions.

How can you know what you’re capable of if you don’t embrace the unknown?”   —   Esmeralda Santiago

(This is our first quote from Ms. Santiago, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  She is a stroke survivor, so I’d say she has definitely embraced the unknown.  Life is certainly fleeting.  Might as well live each day like it may be your last, because it very well might be.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SELFSERVE

(Not bad, for a Monday.  Very surprisingly, we have a new clue word today, in “flock”.  Who would’ve thought that such a common word could have avoided the Jumble all this time?  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database once again!  I hope he picked up on yesterday’s new word as well.  The jumble “senlos” gave me pause, but I figured it out, and it has actually been used before.  I was a bit impatient, and backed in to “gerbil”.  No pun intended.  The answer letter layout was swell, but even without the ERL I was able to figure out the answer.  The great cartoon really made getting the answer pretty easy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
