Actually the FS is catering to the laws of the land. I don't know anybody who does not like mountain bikes. Maybe there's some horses startled on the trail by silent oncoming mountain bikes that don't like them. It's not that biking is bad; it's just that mountain bikes are not appropriate everywhere.
What's at stake are our few remaining unprotected wildlands, and they aint makin any more of em. Meanwhile there are a great many places to ride bikes.
It appears that every type of recreation has people who will not forego demanding a piece of the wildland pie for their personal use. The planet is already nearly totally overwhelmed by the I, I, me, me, mine mentality. Multiply and subdue the earth is making great headway. Maybe a bit of humility and generosity of spirit will catch on in time to allow wild nature to survive the wreck-creation onslaught. Or maybe not...
They never give up. Forest service timber beasts are always up to no good, and must be be kept under constant surveillance. And once a timber sale has been proposed, it never dies. Timber sales and Corpse [sic] of Engineers damns [sic] are like snakes : Just when you think they're dead, they start twitching again.
Although just saying thanks seems inadequate, THANK YOU for protecting our civil liberties and for guiding the ACLU so effectively in Montana. ~Kathleen
Thank you Scott! Like the line in your song "the heart of the apoloosa never died", your heart felt compassion will be with you even after ACLU. It is a lifetime achievement award that you can take with you wherever you go. Great work!
Yes the subject we are dealing with here is that no living being deserves to be tortured,mutilated or forced to die a slow agonizing death.So predator control is deemed necessary, handle it in a humane fashion. When a person enjoys watching a living creature tortured and then die very slowly that constitutes psychotic behavior which makes that person a threat to the public and household pets. Maybe a psychological screening should be conducted before a trapping license can be issued.
"... is one of the city's singled out..." [sic] Clearly we are NOT one of the *cities* that has good copy editors.
We also have Behring Made Knives, Montana Rifle Company, and 406 Precision...not to mention plenty of food in the hills!
5-10 years for the estimated dam removal timeline? I think Hawley needs to take a look at the Klamath Dam situation. There is an actual agreement to remove those dams signed in 2010 and folks have been waiting for Congressional authority and appropriations ever since. With zero movement on AGREED dam removal, Hawley is being overly optimistic here. Especially since the Snake River dams are not outdated or antiquated, have strong fish passage/survival, and are highly depended on for firm power in the NW.
I keep hearing about this new science showing Orca decline is directly related specifically to Snake River salmon, but no one ever cites it. Where is this science? How can a person take a look at the study? Seems extremely far-fetched that such a small group of salmon from the Snake River could have such a big impact on whales that feed off of salmon coming from the entire west coast.
The seats, guys. Fix the seats!
What's going to happen with the rest of the building - the upper floors ?
