You are correct regarding my disapproval of the Forest Service's actions in digging and bulldozing new fire trails and roads. Unfortunately, that is just personal opinion, I have no authority. But you are incorrect if you think I don't appreciate any actions they take during a fire to protect lives and property.Bob, Your on record as being anti Forest Service and anti cranberry farm. Both, cranberry farming in particular have existed long before you happened along. The Pine barrens seemed to survive just fine despite when they were really raped and pillaged in the 1800 & 1900's.
My comment is just to confirm your authority to dictate just what is and isn't good for the Pines.
Where did you get the idea I am against cranberry farmers? In my opinion, they are good stewards of the land, from what I have seen. Here is what I do think about though; If we go back 100 years, it would have been great to keep the river systems as wild as possible, while still having farms off to the side somehow.
