The Definition of Lame:
Modoc submitting off-highway vehicle proposal
http://www.heraldandnews.com/breaking/article.html

     ALTURAS - The Modoc National Forest is submitting a proposal to the California State Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division for funding in support of the Forest's on-going Off-Highway Vehicle program.
          The Division is soliciting proposals for the 2013 grant cycle, and the Modoc is considering submitting a project that would assist with OHV area patrols and law enforcement, according to a news release. Preliminary applications will be made available for review and comment on the Division's website at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/ after March 4. A link to that website is available from the Modoc's website at www.fs.usda.gov/news/modoc/news-events.

What is the definition of Lame? When a Forest closes nearly ALL motorized trails, and then wants the motorized trail community to fund the enforcement of their stupid plan.

In our personal opinion, the OHV community should rise up and universally oppose this.

Illinois buys Pike County land for public recreation site

The purchase price comes from Quinn's $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now construction program of 2009 -- money set aside for long-term infrastructure improvements but unavailable for state government operating expenses such as catching up on $9 billion in overdue bills. The newest purchases will add to the state's 500,000-acre inventory of public lands.
