Page 2 Wednesday., December 5, 2012 The Adams County Record 00r's The forest's worst enemy Dear Editor, I dofft know who is pro- gramming, The U.S.ES. I do know that their agenda is to keep the motorized public off of the forest. They are obliteralting roads saying that they are caus- ing too much sediment to go into the streams, yet some of these roads are miles from the closest stream, some roads have not had travel on them for years, and they also maintain that ATVs must be banned from the forest as they are tearing up too much ground, yet an ATV trail in less than five years will heal over back to its original vegetation. An obliterated road will make an open space out in the forest approxi- mately 25 feet wide, which you can see for the next 100 years and will never return to its original beau- ty, so why not leave the road there, to say nothing of the fact that you have 25 feet of loose dirt. When the road was there, that dirt was packed and prob- ably did not wash as badly, and the handicapped citi- zens had access to the for- est. Another reason the U.S. Forest Service has for obliterating roads is the fact that they do not have money to maintain them. Yet the money to obliterate them suddenly appears and denies the handicapped access to the forest. Why not just leave them and let moth- er nature close them and save taxpayer dollars. Yes, the U.S. Forest Service are the only peo- ple who can create their own jobs, produce noth- ing for the local economy and get paid for it. I will say this for Forest Service personnel, in the management capacity they are just like politi- cians; they will tell you what you want to hear. If it doesn't fit their agenda, it won't happen. Yes, the US forest ser- vice is our economy's and our forest's worst enemy. No exceptions. ,/ez,o Mdoo..x5 Dear Editor, On the afternoon of Nov. 24th, Richard, grand- daughters Syd and Amy, and our two dogs took a walk up Orchard Road to Missman. At that inter- section a small kitty cat saw them and followed them home. She seemed intent on staying, so on Sunday, Richard took her back up Orchard Road in the hopes that she would Lost Kitty Cat scamper off to her own home. That didn't happen because the kitty cat ran back here, beating Richard home! This kitty cat is a small female, long-haired white with tabby patches. She is the perfect kitty to sit on your lap and purr. And she needs a home. Currently she is living at Dr. Bruce Gardner's Heartland Animal Hospital. I took her in to him because she had a cold and needed his care. As most of you know, Dr. Bruce cares for stray kitty cats "and dogs because he is a generous man I do hope that those of you who would like a pet will go to Dr. Bruce and adopt that sweet kitty cat or another cat or a dog.
