The Idaho Department of Lands(IDL) is seeking public comments on a permit application received from BNSF Railway Co. to construct a second train bridge adjacent to and west of the existing train bridge across Lake Pend Oreille. The long-discussed project, which BNSF Railway has proposed to improve rail traffic flow throughout town, recently went […]
The Forest Service is currently seeking public comments regarding the development of alternatives for the Forest Plan Revision on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests. The deadline is February 28. If you don’t understand forest planning, or if you were unaware of this important deadline, it is not your fault. Forest Supervisor Cheryl Probert has failed […]
A recent article in the The Spokesman-Review (“Colville cutting down decades of decline,” Feb. 3) celebrated increased logging on the Colville National Forest. The main justification for logging is to provide fodder for the local mills at taxpayer expense while claiming that the timber cutting is “restoration.” Colville forest Supervisor Rodney Smoldon was quoted as […]

Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) said his legislation to allow bikes in wilderness areas is nothing more than modernizing the original intent of the decades-old Wilderness Act. “People who enjoy mountain biking have just as much a right to use the public trails as those who enjoy hiking or riding, and our wilderness areas were never […]
Comments needed by December 12th! Fracking is the method of extracting very hard-to-get-at natural gas by pressure washing it out of the ground. The process uses a lot of water to extract natural gas that is trapped between rocks. The waste water from this process can be injected back into the ground with a special […]
For 100 years, federal tax policy has incentivized the giving spirit. It has also empowered our crucial work. The goal of simplifying the tax code and making it easier for Americans to file their taxes is admirable, but the collateral damage this simplification would cause comes at too great a cost. According to Republican estimates, […]
It’s bad enough that industrial logging can occur on 250 acres of public land, and be excluded from routine environmental review. This includes limited opportunity for public involvement. The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2017 (HR 2936) would drastically increase this scenario, and allow 10,000 acres of public land to be logged without the necessary […]
Did you know most of our communities recycling currently is shipped to China? Currently single stream recycling in Coeur d’Alene is picked up by Coeur d’Alene Garbage and taken to their recycling facility in Hayden. From there it is bailed, bundled, and trucked to Pioneer Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Tacoma with virtually no sorting. […]
