I want to thank the employee's of this paper for the great job, they have been doing telling the people of the Rim Country about the problems of plant closings and job loss also the problems facing all of us here related to the dangers of forest fires.
I have been sending letters and copies of the newspaper articles to all the listed politicians in this paper and to the Corporation Commissioners. Rep.Tsosie is the only one that cares about our forest and people of the Rim Country, the only one that contacted me in any manner. I thank him.
We the people of Arizona need to push the Congress members, member of the state, counties and cities to get up and help the Forest Service get this biomass and forest thinning project running NOW. Big fires will happen again, and when our wonderful forest is gone, it’s gone.
We the people of Arizona expect those we elect to office will protect our forests and the watersheds; waiting or doing nothing is not the answer. I hope that everyone takes the few minutes to put a stamp on an envelope and a message to each politician and have all family members sign it or call them.
I call on all politicians to put politics aside and protect what we have here and help the Forest Service get the project up and running for all of Arizona and our future.
