Why have we forgotten the ability to compromise?
What are the reasons that that we are still fighting and we are still not the mecca that everyone wants us to be?
The reason is that no one wants to meet in the middle and understand that there should be room for everyone that is working and is here to have it all! With as much land that has been sold or given to the state and feds there should be enough room for everyone. However, that is not the case.
Every single time an area is closed to hunters there will be more hunters that will not buy hunting licenses that fund Fish and Game. I am not a hunter and with more areas closed my husband has quit buying his licenses, which takes away from the money that Fish and Game needs to survive. Then we have the national forests that some say they don’t want anyone to drive on because if they may someday want to go there they do not want to hear an engine? If they ever decide to go there?
Hurdygurdy Cr. not last example of surrounded private land
Regarding the Hurdygurdy Creek article (“Watershed plan spurs heated debate,” Aug. 25), I noticed that not all of the facts were presented. The Smith River Alliance keeps beating the drum about the watershed being one of the last examples of private ownership surrounded by public land, often referred to as “in-holdings,” within the Smith River National Recreation Area.
There are other private in-holdings within this area, such as Big Flat. The concept of in-holdings is not isolated to this specific area in this national forest. It is a concept as old as the national forest system itself. Look at a map of the Klamath, Shasta-Trinity, Modoc or any other National Forest and you will see in-holdings. On some national forests they resemble a checkerboard of private and public owned land. Within these mixed ownership areas there does not appear to be a call to “protect the watershed.”
Vandalism of Calif. mosque is same kind of crime as 9/11 attack
I saw a shocking news report this morning (Fox 28). In Madera County, a group of unknown people vandalized a local mosque.
The county sheriff was quoted on camera stating, “This sort of behavior is not to be tolerated under any circumstances.”
Very sad that people try to make others look bad with religion
This is in response to the Aug. 21 letter, “Mosque in Manhattan shows whose side Obama is on.” I agree with your title. I think a mosque in Manhattan demonstrates that Obama, who is a former constitutional law professor, has sensitivity toward religious freedoms and is on the side of the Constitution.
There is no mosque going to be built at Ground Zero. The center being built is actually located at 45-51 Park Place, which is two blocks from the northern edge of the 16-acre World Trade Center site. The center’s location is a former Burlington Coat Factory store that is already being used for worship. There is a mosque at 245 W. Broadway, 12 blocks north of the Trade Center, and the “Manhattan Mosque” is five blocks away from the site.
Every weekday, Muslims gather and pray in the Pentagon 80 feet away from where terrorists attacked and I have not heard anyone complaining about that.
