  • Letter to the Editor: Wendell Stark
    I have contemplated writing this ever since Mr. Brazell released his decision to close 200 miles of our trails to motorized access. I knew this was being considered but I mistakenly thought just once a National Forest Supervisor would adhere to the National Forest Mandate, “Equal Access will be granted to all users.” I guarantee you there is not even a close amount of equal access for all the users. Within the proposed land closures are several miles of “RS-277 Public Rights of Ways.” This gives access to the public that was provided through a legal mandate. All of the “Rights of Ways” were legally researched according to regulations, legally documented, legally accepted by the Clearwater, Shoshone, and Nez Perce County Commissioners, and legally placed on there prospective road maps as required.
