Interesting article. Both sides want what they want for both selfish reasons and to preserve the forest for future generations. It will be interesting to see which side finally prevails. Thanks, Cal.

I would rather have a protected National Park on my door step than have the loggers move in I also note that Fischer is quoted as having " hunting trophies " displayed in his office.I suppose these are the mounted remains of animals he shot.He is displaying a self centered agenda here.I don 't like hunters nor do I trust them.
