"Perhaps I am an idealist, but I hope we can come together and work in good faith, recognizing that we all want these lands to remain public, and we all want to protect their history, archaeology and unique nature. I think when we ascribe good motives to each other, we'll be more likely to have a productive conversation and more likely to reach an optimal solution for the use of our public lands that everyone can live with."

The founder of outdoor retailer Patagonia — which is suing over the reduction of Bears Ears National Monument — declined to appear at a Tuesday hearing about the smaller monuments replacing it. "Patagonia is Lying / Hiding," charged a Friday tweet from the House Committee on Natural Resources, chaired by Utah Rep. Rob Bishop, with red line striking out "Lying." In an earlier round on Twitter, the committee had accused the company of lying. An Obama administration official — in a tweet — then criticized using a government social media account to disparage a private business. And in response,... [Read More]

Some tense moments as the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands was hearing a bill from Utah Representative John Curtis that would give the authority of law to President Donald Trump's executive order shrinking Bears Ears National Monument. Utah Representative Rob Bishop is known for his sharp tongue, and he unleashed it on the Chair of the Ute Indian Tribe Business Committee, Shaun Chapoose. "Do you know where fish creek actually is?" Bishop asked Chapoose... [Read More]

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert told Congress on Tuesday that President Donald Trump's recent move to shrink two national monuments in the state provides a "reset" for all sides of the debate to work on a solution to protect public lands. In doing so, he backed legislation to name the Shásh Jaa' and Indian Creek national monuments, a bill that environmentalists, tribal leaders and Democrats say doesn't go far enough to preserve sacred areas in southern Utah. Herbert told the House Natural Resources subcommittee on federal lands that Trump's action to split the Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah... [Read More]

I am so happy to see Sen. Orrin Hatch has decided to retire. I have always found it ironic that he ran his first campaign on the premise that three terms were plenty for Frank Moss and yet double that and then some. One of the things ruining this nation is career politicians like Hatch lose their perspective and become beholden to deep-pocket benefactors, instead of doing for the people who elected them. Your legacy as far as I am concerned is your complicity in the rape of the beautiful areas known as Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, for... [Read More]

What the Utah Republican Party and the Trump administration have done to American Indians with regard to Bears Ears National Monument is beyond despicable. Here is a quorum of "take back our public lands" advocates telling the Indians they can't have their precious little monument. What hypocrisy. An ever-to-be-remembered front page of The Tribune (Dec. 5) shows a bunch of arrogant white guys pumping their fists and cheering while a little Indian lady bows her head in tears. Here is a representative in Congress proclaiming total local governmental support of this action. They simply choose not to hear the... [Read More]
