Next time, please put location info in the post (preferably in the subject line) so people who are no where near this event don't have to open your message and then click through to the next message to see that this out of their area.
Subject line was too short!|

If you can't make a meeting you can still voice your opinion. Pete Blanc did a post on Advise, Suggestions and General Help titled Current & Jacks Forks Rivers and did a summary of the plan and there are other comments that one might find interesting.
that was unnecessary|

It was a helpful suggestion. some people can't take advice without getting bent personally.
I'm with Slushpaddler on this one|

Location info either in the title or first paragraph would be appreciated.
I'll be there|

With only an hour scheduled for the hearing portion, I hope they limit comments to 3 minutes. I'm sure they'll cut it off at 9:00.
might want to look at this|

(and I are one, though not in the ONSR), tend to go all night. Last September I was snug in my tent around midnight on the lower Jack's Fork. In a (sleep induced?) stupor, I was aware of a motor coming upriver but couldn't put 2 and 2 together. A few minutes later it ended up being being full on daylight from the gigging lights about 30 feet from my tent.
Posted by: pblanc on Jan-07-14 10:32 AM (EST)
I have had the same experience. To have a gigging boat come past your campsite in the evening can be a rude awakening, literally.

flashbacks of a January night on a sandbar in the Missouri River when the county police sent a helicopter out to spotlight me in the middle of the night.

Yep, just saw!|

Like Pete just saw on FB that the meetings have been postponed becuase of the weather.

Another meeting at Eminence is probably not good news for paddlers, either.
There are supposed to be regular tests|
Posted by: pblanc on Jan-09-14 11:52 AM (EST)
To be fair|
Posted by: pblanc on Jan-09-14 12:17 PM (EST)
to those on the other side of this issue, I understand that Cross-Country Trail Rides did voluntarily make changes to their facility to reduce runoff from the stables into the river following placement of the Jack's Fork on the 303(d) list, and did so in a rather prompt manner.
To the point...............|

Economic development is written into the DNA of conservation agencies, federal and state, across the country. It is a central part of their mission now days.

I've been around this culture a long time. My Grandfather's hardscrabble farm backed up to a National Forest. Only they didn't call it that or the Mark Twain. It was only known as "government land". Even as a child I understood that it was not always government land. Now the culture has a certain political faction to back them and they’re feeling pretty powerful.
