Re: “Unhappy Camp

The particular Us versus Them theme of this article has missed a huge number of real-life issues making Happy Camp unhappy. First and foremost would be the corrosive town gossip, followed by a crystal meth epidemic, marijuana growers on welfare making tens of thousands of dollars each year, local thieves too lazy to grow their own ripping off marijuana growers every year, corrupt country officials, child and spousal abuse, to name a few. And if You ask people who have lived here all their lives, all these community problems were here long before the logging industry pulled out. It is a convenient scapegoat to bash KS Wild for Happy Camp's ills, complacency keeping some locals here from moving forward and refusing to make the best of change. There is a major arrogance among some townsfolk who harbor an attitude that the national forests here are simply their own private property, rather than admit they belong equally to every U.S. citizen. When Joe and Jane sixpack who live in the city head off to enjoy the mountains for a week of camping and recreation, many are shocked to see their national forests have become a mere tree farm for a few wealthy timber companies. The Siskiyou Crest Monument is a wonderful effort to reverse decades long exploitation of public lands. Yet Happy Camp old timers continue to do what they do best: whine about it.
