    Since this is not a hot issue directly involving the people in Salt Lake/Ogden/Provo areas it doesn't make much news, sort of like the nuclear power plant on the Green River or dumping nuclear waste in the Tooele desert. It should be on people's watch list as it is involving an area that has little water to deal with the type of mining that is going on and Mike Noel dealing with developing and water rights and claims along the way, along with Aaron Tilton's development on the Green River. Water was valuable in the 1800s and is more valuable, actually, now. Water and mining was a significant impact in Colorado and erosion ensued and was part of that. The beautiful pristine areas of Kane county need to be preserved and since BLM is a big part of that, the process protects the area, somewhat from developers that think about the quick money and FRIENDS. The Friends of animals in Kanab think about good things and the impact on life for all, not just the few. We need to think about all of Utah and not just a beautiful neighbor where we live.
