Good Morning, Utah Congressional Delegation Members:
 
Please work with Governor Herbert, Secretary Vilsack, President Obama and the Utah Association of Counties to restore function to the Forest Service and their mission, "Caring for the Land and Serving People."  Our continuing fight to "take back" our lands is a loser for the American people.
 
Peace and Understanding,

Dear Ranger Robert:
 
Following are more comments and enclosures relative to your September 15 letter and the draft SEIS. 
 
President Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Dan Glickman, Jim Lyons and Mike Dombeck imposed the 2001 Roadless Rule on the American people in the final days of their administration.
 
In July 2003, Federal Judge Clarence Brimmer struck down 2001 Roadless Rule because it violated NEPA and the Wilderness Act.
 
On April 29, 2004, Roadless ruckus By Cat Urbigkit was published in the Sublette Examiner, Pinedale, Wyoming.  This resulted in a May 7, 2004 letter from Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal thanking Jim Trenholm, Cat Urbigkit, the Sublette Examiner and Harriet Hageman for helping set the record straight.  He wrote, "I write this letter to remove any doubt about my position on the Roadless Rules and Regulations and ongoing litigation on this subject."  Freudenthal's letter was also published in the Sublette Examiner. 
 
Copies of both the news article and Freudenthal's letter are enclosed.  In my view, the failure of George W. Bush and his appointees to honestly address Brimmer's  July, 2003 Roadless Rule ruling and Freudenthal's April, 2004 letter, setting the record straight,.were casualties of the Iraq war.
 
Peace and Understanding,

Dear Ranger Robert:
 
Your September 15 letter noted "this draft SEIS was initiated in response to a March 2012 U.S. district court order instructing the Forest Service to address deficiencies in the previous environmental analysis and the 2007 record of decision for travel plan revision on the Ogden Ranger District."  These court-identified deficiencies included the Forest Service failure to "provide notice of available support for the public to understand cataloguing illegal routes." 
 
How is it possible to explain illegal routes to the public when the Forest Service does not seem to understand them?  If a road has existed for a long time within a so-called roadless area identified in the 2001 Roadless Rule, is the road illegal or is the roadless area illegal?
 
Enclosed is a copy of: 
 
My February 3, 2014 (originally September 30, 2013) letter to Governor Gary Herbert, Regional Forester Nora Rasure and BLM State Director Juan Palma.
 
My September 17, 2013 email to former Utah Lt. Governor Greg Bell.
 
Long ago Dilbert cartoon w/ Q & A about roads and roadless areas.
 
June 29, 2011 letter to me from President Obama.  Although I greatly appreciated the letter from our President, it failed to respond to my many letters concerning roadless areas and forest planning.   It seems there has been no communication between regional foresters and the Secretary of Agriculture during the Harris Sherman era.  Perhaps this will change with Sherman's replacement.
 
My June 13, 2003 appeal of the Wasatch-Cache Revised Forest Plan.  Appeal Deciding Officer Gloria Manning denied all appeals and affirmed Regional Forester Jack Troyer's decision more than one and a half years later.  I later got an unsigned card in the mail stating that Assistant Under Secretary David Tenny had chosen not to review the Appeal Deciding Officer's decision.
 
If you, or anyone else, receiving a copy of this letter has any questions regarding this letter and its enclosures, I will try to respond to your questions with answers. 
 
Peace and Understanding,
