No problem for Brad

Document Actions
Dear HCN,


In his piece on Brad Powell, the Forest Service's Regional Forester for California (HCN, 9/10/01: New forest chief becomes a lame duck), Ed Marston makes it sound like Dale Bosworth fired Powell. In fact, Powell is moving to Missoula to become regional forester for the Northern Region (North Idaho, Montana, North Dakota). That's not an insignificant post in the Forest Service. It's where Bosworth was before he became chief.


I don't understand how Marston thinks Powell's career has been wrecked. Work under the California forest plan proceeds. Mr. Powell now comes north. What's the problem with that?
