Frontier Tree Run 12/2/2006

Submitted by tsm1 on Sun, 11/26/2006 - 23:53

For those of you living under a rock (or enjoying a trip to Baja Sur for the Mil).. the first Saturday of December is just around the corner - less than a week away!

The Lampings have offered to let us cut a few trees on their property in the Elkhorns again, so no need for tree permits.

I've volunteered to make a pot of chili again - I'm going to brave the crowds at Costco sometime this week to see about buying half a cow..

Post-up In the Forum with an RSVP and who wants to bring what as far as anything / everything else.

Approximately 100 members of grassroots associations gathered at the Montana State Capitol on Saturday. Present were: representatives of U.S. Senator Conrad Burns and U.S. Representation Denny Rehberg; Montana Public Service Commissioner, Doug Mood; Montana State Senator Jerry O'Neil; and Montana GOP Legislative Campaign Coordinator Larry Grinde. Forest use groups present were: Citizens for Balanced Use, Families for Outdoor Recreation, Montana Trail Vehicle Riders Association, Montana Snowmobile Association, Montana Four Wheel Drive Association, Montanans For Multiple Use Association, Montana Property Rights Association, and the Treasure State Alliance.

At the front steps of the Capitol, these groups presented Hal Harper, Governor Schweitzer's representative, with petitions signed by over 7800 Montana citizens. These petitions stated:

We the undersigned wish to voice our opposition to the 2001 Clinton Roadless Rule and Montana Attorney General Mike McGrath's continued support for this rule. We the undersigned furthermore ask Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer not to make any petition to President Bush asking these lands be further studied or preserved as roadless areas for future wilderness.
We object:

* to having our access to our National Forests restricted;
* to the gating and destruction of our forest roads;
* to having our National Forests mismanaged and reduced to fire fuel;
* to being subjected to arbitrary restrictions concerning our preferred activities while on our National Forests.

We are the people who live, work, pay taxes and vote in this state.

These groups submitted for Governor Schweitzer the election results from Mineral County and from Flathead County. In Mineral County 73% of the voters approved motorized recreation and roaded timber management as part of multiple use on their local forests. In Flathead County 63% of the voters voted for the forests to "be managed by the Forest Service for multiple use purposes including motorized recreation and roaded timber production."
