I'm not supporting bundling, down that path will lie nothing but pain. Neither should you.

I'm just straight voting no on all the bundled amendments. The one good caveat isn't good enough to justify the others. As for the Water & Soil runners, their opposition really aren't good picks. One of the candidates for Group 1, while he has good experience, seems just like a Federal yes man and is near 70 years old. You said it was time for Judge Taylor to retire but I couldn't find anything in her record to make her seem unfit for another term. I couldn't find her age though.
