The Adams County Record Wednesday, May 16, 2012 A New Fence for the Peace Park BY IEFF HOWARD American Legion Post 72 and the Veterans Memorial Peace Park Committee got a surprise last week when Tim Mentor and Jeb Balderson inquired about working at the Park as a part of their Senior Project. After some discussion, Tim Mentor made the recommendation that the Park needed fencing along the south side. Everyone agreed, and the team took charge. In no time they had the measurements, materials list and price quote for almost 300 feet of fencing materials. The next day they picked up materials and began work. We were amazed at how hard they worked and how fast the project was completed. F r o m discussion to completion was less than three days. As of Saturday afternoon, the park has a beautiful new post and panel fence! The Legion is truly thankful for their hard work and dedication, as they have added significantly to the aesthetics of this Mentor, Jeb Balderson, community asset. Again Levi Maynard and Dallas much thanks to Tim Smith. Job Well done! The hard-working fence crew. Left to right: Jeb Balderson, Tim Mentor, Levi Maynard and Dallas Smith. Page 3 Back Country Horsemen Appeal Forest Decision by Dale Fisk The Heartland Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of Idaho (ABCH) is appealing the Record of Decision for the Mill Creek- Council Mountain Landscape Restoration Project The group says it disagrees with the Modified Alternative 5 decision, finding it to be unbalanced, "as resources' are heavily weighted to environmental priorities in particular to the obliteration of roads:' HBCH says, instead of taking into account "the recreational desires of our group and many others in the local community Instead, a predetermined Forest Plan,_ Aquatic Conservation Strategy and the Endangered Species Act were the driving forces behind this decision:' The HBCH was been involved in the Payette Forest Coalition's study of, and recommendations for, the project, q-he Forest Service is not obligated to abide by recommendations, from outside groups, but makes an effort to do so if the recommendations don't run afoul of federal laws. A project similar to this one -- the Lost Creek/Boulder Creek Landscape Restoration Project -- is now in the planning stages, q-he next Payette Forest Coalition meeting for this project will take place on May 31 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at a yet to be announced location. Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.
