Wise use at Grand Canyon

  A Grand Canyon chapter of the People For the West! was formed Jan. 14. Its goals include unrestricted access to public lands, gaining state and county control of federal lands, and preventing federal land managers from interfering with "free enterprise" pursuits such as mining, grazing and logging. The chapter also wants to end federal restrictions on air tours over the Grand Canyon, reports the Arizona Daily Sun. By unanimous votes of 8-to-0, the chapter elected Angus McIntosh as president and Yancy O'Barr as vice president. McIntosh is a range conservationist at the Tusayan district of the Forest Service. O'Barr works for the Federal Aviation Administration as an air traffic controller at Grand Canyon National Park Airport, just south of the park.
