RE: Re: North Fork American River

The motto of the Earth Liberation Front is, "If you build it, we will burn
it." But here in water-limited Sonoma County, my motto is, "Flush twice;
stop growth."

Greetings ride camp; Before I go any farther, I do not wish to inflame folks
with "I hate Bill Clinton/George Bush " stuff.  I simply am wondering if the
new proposal to set aside wilderness areas including the North fork of
American River, making them off limits to further logging and mining, Will
affect trail riders and the Tevis?  I remember a short while back there was
a fight to prevent the whole thing from being dammed, and I see there is no
dam.  I actually also remember a proposal to dam the colorado river which
would have turned Grand Canyon into a lake, anyone else remember that?  How
about you John freezing in Vermont? My first thought was "hurray good
news!", but after reading many of your opinions about environmental impacts,
I am cautiously optimistic.  Currently I am grieving the loss of my local
foothills which are being scraped clear of any living wisp of grass, and
littered with debris of construction due to reckless develo! pment of trophy
houses by greedy developers, and crooked politicians. Here in my home town.
Sneaky nasty tricky development.  I am seeing loss of trails, loss of
wildlife, total destruction of an endangered species flower, increased
fires, increased trash, noise, and increased overpopulation.  Nothing like
finding your favorite trail with a shiny new lock on the shiny new gate.
Please tell me this is good news  for the American River..anyone know?
