Flabbergasted by closures

Herald and News letter to editor by Ray Driscoll, Chiloquin and Don Russel, Klamath Falls, October 2, 2012

After reading the letter about road closures in Winema and Fremont national forests on Sept. 20, we were totally flabbergasted and confused along with everyone else.

We have never seen such and unorganized mess in our lives. No one will know where they are at any given time unless they are totally familiar with their area. Maps that are supplied do no good when roads have no numbers or markers.

We doubt if the Forest Service personnel themselves would know where they were. We doubt if the Forest Service would have the personnel to expedite this mess. We have no problem with road closures on secondary roads for wildlife and ecology, but at that point, the roads to be closed should be totally blocked. There should be no guesswork by the public on what is closed and what is not. At this point, we think everyone should use the forest as they always have and let them arrest us all. Then the courts and jails would be so plugged with these dangerous outlaws, they would almost have to give up and be more productive somewhere else. We realize that blocking the roads will be expensive, but since the government is making the rules, they should foot the bill; not some innocent person having an outing on our land and paying a fine.
