Bonner County Daily Bee Editorial

Posted on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015 by »

We couldn’t agree more or say it better, so to quote the Bonner County Daily Bee:

“Scotchman Peak has stood guard over the region since the earliest days of time. It’s only right that we return the favor and stand up for such a unique treasure by calling on Idaho’s congressional delegation to designate the area as wilderness ……the Daily Bee joins its voice to those calling on the federal government to protect the Scotchman Peaks region and designate it as wilderness. We also call on our congressional delegation to lead the charge.

There is no other answer, no other solution, that makes sense.”
