To the Editor:
Well, here we go again! The Judge has some county road money thats burning a hole in his pocket. What has our county road money got to do with our forest projects?
Years ago I worked for the Forest Service and they had at that time a 100-year sustainability yield program which worked very well for all the timber situations, including jobs for the loggers and mills. That was back in the late 40s and 50s. But Ive been around, you know, and seen this mess coming for years.
But what gets me is that the Judge lost the election by 60 percent-40 percent. Shouldnt that tell him something: that his ideas might not fit into workable programs?
Last year Canyon Creek went wild and destroyed a lot of property. Thats a taste of what Mother Nature can do. This brings me back to our road money, which is a rainy day fund for emergency needs of our county roads. That brings memories of another trust fund that was robbed by our Federal government and is now in debt with nothing but borrowed money to sustain it.
