No Roads in the Tongass National
by Don Hoff Jr.
June 20, 2004
It would be a crime if the funding amendment failed and allow
roads to be built in the Tongass National Forest for further
exploitation of our timber. The few people that will come into
Southeast Alaska and rape us of our trees. They are like termites,
yes I will call them "termite people" .
I would commend Rep. Robert Andrews, D-N.J., and Steve Chabot,
R-Ohio for their leadership in offering the amendment to the
Interior spending bill that prohibits the expenditure of any
federal dollars for any new road construction in Southeast 's
16.9 million acre Tongass National Forest.
America sees Alaska as the Last Fontier. America needs to protect
Alaska for future generations of Americans to their right to
the "Wilderness Experience". Unlike in the lower
48 States where logging roads crisscross their lands and it is
Senator Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska says timber is a renewable resource.
Yes, if you can wait 300 to 500 years to cut the second growth
of Spruce, Red Cedar, Yellow Cedar and Hemlock trees. If it
is any body driving nails into coffins, it is you Senator Lisa
Murkowski for allowing the destruction and exploitation of all
our natural resources in Alaska and ruining it for all future
generations of Americans that want to see Alaska in its natural
state. This is my opinion.
