We need your attendance to help with the 10 year revision of Cherokee
National Forest. I have been sending these alerts so far to deaf ears. The
rolling revision is now being made by environmental groups not by you
because they SHOW UP for the meetings. Here's some of the things they are
wanting in the plan....since we don't show up to dispute them.......they get
what they want. Here is what they are asking:
1. Dehumanize the forest - no people
2. Forest Service to buy up all private holdings in the forest boundarys
(ever heard of imminate domain?)
3. Private lands that border the forest need to be managed by the forest
(not the land owner)
4. No timber harvest. (No harvest, no roads...no harvest, no small game...no
harvest, no deer,......equals wilderness)
5. Some hunting allowed in some areas (but you'll have to walk), primative
weapons only (archery, muzzeloader?)
6. Join existing wilderness areas to create a "wilderness coorador"
7. Motorized recreation.........NONE

ARE YOU SICK YET.....WANT MORE.....

8. Roads.......none
9. Existing Roads......close
10. Fishing.......to violent to exist in the tranquality of the forest

ON AND ON AND ON


If this is what YOU WANT keep doing what you are doing don't come to the
meetings. If you want to STOP THIS CRAP GET OFF YOUR REAR AND GET TO THE
MEETINGS!!!!!!! THE REGIONAL FORESTER HAS DIRECTED THAT EVERY FOREST IN THE
SOUTHERN REGION WILL FOLLOW THE PLANS THAT CHEROKEE IS UNDERTAKING NOW!
