Subscriber Warning

  • Unauthorized subscription offers like this one charging $85.95 have been making their way to HCN subscribers. HCN's real annual rate is $37.

 

High Country News subscribers should be aware that an Oregon company is mailing unauthorized offers for HCN subscriptions and renewals. Please note: These are not authentic solicitations from High Country News.

The company name on these solicitations is Publishers Billing Emporium. The solicitation we have seen offers a renewal for $85.95 and includes a lot of small print. We recommend you do not respond to these offers, and you may want to contact your state's office of attorney general.

High Country News does not engage other organizations to solicit subscriptions or renewals (with one minor exception for libraries). We contact our regular subscribers directly through email or U.S. Postal Service mail. And we never use telemarketers.

We believe that no sensitive information has been compromised (such as credit card data) and suspect that HCN has simply become the latest target in a shady scheme that larger magazines have been dealing with for years.

If you ever have a question about subscription or renewal notices using the High Country News name, please call us toll-free at 800-905-1155 or contact us at hcn.org/feedback.

Joe Feller Passes
Joe Feller, professor of law at Arizona State University, died in Tempe on April 8 at the age of 59, after being hit by a car. He taught at ASU for more than 25 years, writes Arizona State Dean Douglas Sylvester: "Joe cared deeply about the environment and about environmental justice, and he trained a generation of environmental lawyers in Arizona." He held an undergraduate degree in physics and a law degree from Harvard, plus a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley.

Joe was a prominent source in several HCN stories on forest and grazing issues. He represented regional and national conservation organizations including the National Wildlife Federation, The Wilderness Society, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and the Sierra Club in many high-level cases. "Joe loved the West's great landscapes, even the ones most people don't find picturesque or beautiful. He used every tool available, from buy-outs to litigation, to reduce the amount of livestock grazing on some of the West's most ecologically fragile lands. And he got his students out to those lands, passing along both his love of them and his deep understanding of how easily and lastingly they could be damaged by careless use," writes Holly Doremus at the Legal Planet blog.

Corrections
In our April 29 story "A New Forest Paradigm," we mistakenly referred to a timber sale near Eugene, Ore., as "Rainbow Bridge" instead of "Rainbow Ridge." The original plan to log 110-year-old trees in that sale was dropped.

Our April 15 cover story, "Sacrificial Land" stated that the endangered Mojave tui chub "persists nowhere else on Earth but in Soda Lake's small, isolated springs." While this is indeed the last spot the fish persists naturally, there are introduced populations at the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's Camp Cady Wildlife Area, the Lewis Center in the town of Apple Valley, and the Mojave National Preserve. Thanks to alert reader Raymond Bransfield of Ventura, Calif., for drawing them to our attention.
