Dear HCN,


Terri Martin of the National Parks and Conservation Association voices alarm about the RS 2477 road right-of-way loophole now being employed by wise-use groups to frustrate the public interest (-Other Voices' HCN, 3/21/94). In the interest of truth, she should tell the whole story.


Rather than pursue a compromise on the issue of paving southern Utah's Burr Trail, Martin and some other representatives of national environmental organizations brought in the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund and attempted legal strong-arm tactics against Garfield County. This strategy backfired in the worst possible way and led to the current prominence of RS 2477.
