Forest closure

From page A5 | December 05, 2012 |

EDITOR:

Kathy Hardy at the forest service has done it again, she has closed our forest early again. As the rightful owners of the U.S. National Forest, we knew when you were appointed to that position that you would do everything in your power to run us out. We, the taxpaying citizens of this county that love to ride in this forest do not accept your decision. Those of us that moved here years ago and those that were born and raised here will continue to ride whenever and wherever we wish. You and the Dept. of Ag are a joke and we do not recognize your rules and regs. When you took the job you said that you were OHV friendly and that you would do everything you could to keep our forest open to all. We all know that you are a puppet and you are controlled by the enviro-nuts. You have no regard for the business owners or the citizens of this county and you have done everything to systematicly close our forest to the people that own it. So this next week in the paper we will see layoff notices to your employees that work in the areas that you have closed, right? Oh, I forgot, the local, state, and Federal workers are never hurt by the assinine decisions made by people that have no right to be in that position in the first place.

As of this year, I will no longer pay the green sticker blood money to DMV to not ride in my forest. I urge all of you OHVers to do the same. The U.S. Forest depends on green sticker money to do things to keep us out of where we go to play. This letter is not directed towards all employees of the U.S.F., just the ones that make the decisions to do the wrong thing.
