Any and all are welcome, if you have one or many question about the hunt for your ancestors, we love a challenge. Our regular, first Monday of the month-meet- ings, will begin in Oct. on the 1st. Letters To The Editor Continued from page 2 Dear Editor, Whether particle physicists can determine they've found the Higgs Boson (the new God Particle) for certain is a matter of time. No scien- tist ever assumes anything, plus discoveries need to be accepted by scientific con- vention. My point: I'm old enough to have gone through another God Particle excite- ment period when RNA and amino acids were discovered within the ice dust of a pass- ing comet, decades ago, and that became the God Particle. The "Big-Bang" supposedly occurred about 14 billion years ago within a point infi- nitely small and at infinitely high pressure and tempera- ture. What we see around us Another God Particle and in the evening sky are the theoretical results of the "Bang." But what if the uni- verse never had a time when nothing was there? What if man, himself, created a beginning point to satisfy his human need for beginnings and ends? Yes, new stars are being born and old stars are dying every day out there, and our sun will die eventu- ally also; but I believe that occurs within the infinity of a universe that never had a beginning of time. Professor Hoyle called it the "Steady- State" theory. The original "God Particle" from the above comet came from our galactic center, as have other God Particles from other comets from other centers of other galax- ies. Comets have impacted with planet earth, since our 4 billion year life span, car- rying with them the require- ments for the beginnings of life. Comets carry water ice, and all water on our earth came from comet ice. First we had the water, then the RNA, the amino acids and life began at the single-cell level. That is where I came from. I'm a product of the solar system, the galaxy and the universe in general. Every mineral on earth and every cell in my body is composed of chemical elements from somewhere within that beau- tiful home for all of us, we call the universe. Long ago at a campfire, I experienced a night like no night has been, or will be again. Under that self-same sky, that universe; man struggled to survive, then struggled to co-exist in a protective society of other like creatures. Mankind grew from the Neanderthal to Modern Man. Man began to learn and built knowledge upon what he had learned yesterday. All the ancient civilizations of ancient man are the seedlings of who we are today and it all occurred under that sky of enlighten- ment, that one night at that one campfire. Governm(nt Dear Editor, I wanted to send a few cor- rections in regards to the RAC (county commissioner meeting) article in the last edition of the paper. When it comes to anything Forest Service-related it seems even small errors can perpetuate misunderstand- ing. The $4,000 requested for the stream crossing res- toration was specifically for fences to exclude wildlife and Corrections and clarification livestock grazing for just a few years while vegetation at culvert removal/replacement sites recovered. (Note: the culvert replacement will be done in 2013; the removal of two culverts is complete). The Record article implied that the money was to repair damage done by the timber sale. This crossing restora- tion work was covered by the same NEPA document as the timber sale, but these were watershed improve- ment projects meant to mit- igate effects of the timber harvest and road use but also to improve fish habitat over time. The timber sale did not damage these culvert sites; they were pre-existing and already impediments to high stream flows and fish pas- sage. The report was accurate in stating that Joe Holmes made it clear he thought the timber sale revenue should pay for other work in the same NEPA document but it should be made clear that, with an agency-wide empha- sis on and funding for eco- logical restoration, the bulk of this work was already paid for by appropriated money meant for watershed restora- tion.
