SAVING RED ROCK CANYON
Commissioner Susan Brager’s proposal to trade Federal land for private in-holding in Red Rock Canyon is good news (RJ, 1/19/2013, p. 3B). the Canyon is a priceless National treasure and it would be a shame to see 4700 homes, a business park, and retail areas in the middle of such a marvelous gift of nature.

Here is the report from NDEP about the most recent meeting and permit issuance. Funny how many people thought that the environment on public land next to a […]
