Dams and a monument: ‘We feel squeezed here’, H&N by Shirley Fisher 2/17/12. "It was a great life in those days and things were busy along the river — there were miners and loggers, everyone seemed to have a job, city folk had summer homes in the area.”..."The Siskiyou Monument proposal, if passed, would set aside more than 500,000 acres of land between the Klamath River and Siskiyou Crest, limiting access"..."Fisher is concerned about the possibility of greater frequency of flooding if the dams come out. With the prospect of dam removal and the proposed 500,000-acre Siskiyou Monument, she wonders what the future holds."
Monument legislation discussed at hearing, testimony by U.S. Congressman Wally Herger 11/15/11. "Obama Administration intends to use this authority to lock up more than thirteen million acres of federal land from multiple-use access. In a time of high unemployment, this would lock even more American jobs away."
9/15/11 - U.S. Congressman Wally Herger testimony: Monument Legislation Discussed at Hearing: "In the Northern California Congressional District I represent, the federal government owns a significant amount of the land, with it reaching as high as 75% in one county. Local communities collect no taxes from these lands, money that could go to schools and roads. The federal government is also unable to manage it properly. Now the Obama Administration is talking about increasing the number of presidentially-designated national monuments...."
Big Picture Part 3: The Re-Wilding of
Committee to Hold Oversight Hearing on Interior Department’s “Wild Lands” Policy, Natural Resources Committee, posted to KBC 2/25/11. "The Wild Lands policy expressly circumvents Congress’ statutory authority to establish Wilderness areas. ... the public’s access to public lands can be limited or halted entirely – impacting our economy, jobs, recreation opportunities and American energy production. Millions of acres of multi-use land in the West are at risk of being locked-up if the Administration carries out this policy.”
Cancel my three subscriptions, Sunset, by Shirley Fisher, Siskiyou Daily News 11/15/10. "You have now decided to go into politics with your support of the environmentalist movements trying to create the Siskiyou Crest Monument..."

Rep. McClintock's remarks on H.Res. 1254, 3:43-minute video. (KBC Summary: President Obama wants to put 3 million acres of Modoc and Lassen counties into Modoc Plateau National Monument. In May 2010 Modoc County unemployment was 18.2%, 60% of the land is controlled by the government. The designation would end use of natural resources: grazing, timber and minerals, further devastating the counties. Interior is withholding 2016 pages of documents to Congress, with contributions by several gov't agencies.)
