ANOTHER MASSIVE NATIONAL MONUMENT PUSHED IN UTAH!

ANOTHER MASSIVE NATIONAL MONUMENT PUSHED IN UTAH!

Greetings Utah BRC members and supporters...

Given the news of this week, we felt a need to update our update. We hate to inundate your inbox like this, but the threat is real, and you need to know about it.  

Situation:
For whatever reason (November election, perhaps?) the Washington, DC.., Wilderness Lobby has twisted their proverbial throttle to "WIDE OPEN."

From Montana, we learn the Wilderness lobbyists feel "emboldened by election results" and are pushing the incredulously named "Forest Jobs and Recreation Act." That's Montana Senator Jon Tester's pitch to add an additional 600,000 acres to Montana's already impressive 3.5 million plus acres of Wilderness.  

And in California, our friends at the American Lands Rights Association recently sent an action alert noting plans for yet another new National Park are in overdrive. Ditto for Wilderness efforts in Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada.

BLM Offer Reward for Illegal Dumping Information

Salt Lake City, Utah (Oct 14, 2009) — The Bureau of Land Management Utah, West Desert District is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the party responsible for illegally dumping 18 television and computer monitors and large pieces of furniture on BLM-administered lands in Tooele County.

The dumping occurred approximately 1 ½ miles south of I-80, Exit 77 in the Timpie Point area of Skull Valley.  BLM Utah law enforcement officers believe the dumping occurred between Sept. 24 and Oct. 11, 2009.  Additionally, the quantity and size of the items dumped suggest that more than one vehicle was involved.

Due to the toxicity of leaded glass, the television and computer monitors pose serious health hazards to both humans and the environment.  The total clean-up costs for the illegal dumping could be as much as $5,000.

The BLM is urging anyone who might have witnessed the illegal dumping or who might have information on the identity of the responsible party to contact BLM Ranger Randy Griffin at (801) 977-4314.
