Re: “Unhappy Camp

In Reference to the OPEN LETTER FROM KS WILD "A Monument won’t take anyone’s private property. A Monument won’t impact hunting, fishing, or firewood. A Monument won’t shut down any main roads or stop all timber sales." This is a hard guarantee to make considering, the highest level of hierarchical authority lies within the original proclamation of the president. The Siskiyou-Crest Monument Proclamation has yet to be written or made public. So we have to look to the last,local National Monument, Clinton's Last Hurrah, "Cascade-Siskiyou National monument Proclamation" which, in Clinton's own words, prohibits, " The commercial harvest of timber or other vegetative material is prohibited, except when part of an authorized science-based ecological restoration project aimed at meeting protection and old growth enhancement objectives. " Also, " The Secretary of the Interior shall prepare, within 3 years of this date, a management plan for this monument, and shall promulgate such regulations for its management as he deems appropriate. The management plan shall include appropriate transportation planning that addresses the actions, including road closures or travel restrictions, necessary to protect the objects identified in this proclamation. " which clearly lays out precedent for road closures. Next we'll examine Grazing, " Should grazing be found incompatible with protecting the objects of biological interest, the Secretary shall retire the grazing allotments pursuant to the processes of applicable law. " This is standard operating procedure of the National Monument process. Operation will be handed over to the BLM, which will halt all real access for 3 to 8 years while they develop a Resource Management Plan. The Concern of the people who live in the town's affected by this plague of federalization, have sturdy ground to stand upon when holding suspicion towards any National Monument Proposals. Local and State Sovereignty Right's are as much a part of this struggle as the right to mine gold on the River. Copyright, The Siskiyou Scribe, 2010.
