Re: “Bridge Ban Dies

30+ years here now. The dream is over. This bridge is a good thing for spreading out the horrendous traffic we have and the even worse traffic that is coming. This very simply a bunch of rich folks wanting the woods to be there own back yard. Well that is gone thanks to said rich folks developing my town so fast. It's gonna happen, and happen again and again. We will have a vehicle bridge from the end of Riverwoods in DRW before my kids have kids.

Re: “Letters 4/28-5/5

Forest service doesn't burn from spring to fall. They burn IN the spring and IN the fall. Amazing how uneducated the public still is. That is the fault of the FS for sure. As for mechanically treating lands. Yes we do that as well. You cannot do this in the summer either because of the risk of starting wildfires. Don't like smoke? Ask someone from Sisters about smoke from wildfire and whine to them about smoke in Bend in the spring and fall, you most likely will get slapped.

Re: “Convenience Over Accountability

Investigation will show a story. That's all. They will not place blame. That's not what its for, its to learn from. From that story you will have to make your own opinion. This day and age with how we fight fire...scratch that, how the forest service fights fire, for 19 fire fighters on a hot shot crew to lose there lives...someone fd up.It really is that simple. I had a taskforce leader ask at briefing for anybody to find a piece of ground worth dying for that day. That really sunk in. We were even in urban interface. No house is worth dying for unless there are people in it. I would never expect anybody to take more risk then they would normally take just to save my house. What I saw in the video of that fire was sage...a bush.
Dave is a complete moron and everyone who has ever even been in his presence knows it.
