Finally- Media Coverage for Merced River Plan

Today I’m just going to link you to an article by Joshua Emerson Smith of the Merced
Sun-Star
. <HERE> While not the SF Chronicle, the Sun-Star is trying to bring attention to the impact that the MRP may have on us. I chatted with him about my perspective. I have no clue why in 2011 we need to have a golf course at Wawona – the south fork of the America River flows nearby.  But it’s true – with turnouts of from 10 to 50 per in-person session, the workshops should have had standing room only. 11 people took the time to join the webinar. That’s it.  I’ve done a lot of reading on the whole issue and am convinced that the park as we now know it will change. The User Capacity thing is a major item in the lawsuit settlement.

So take the time and complete your comments on the NPS worksheet.  Warning: It took me a couple hours to complete. There is just too much info presented and the form is too small to read easily. You have to scroll and zoom a lot to navigate it.  You can do so <Here>.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “The whole world is watching. The whole world is watching.Peace chant from the American 1960’s antiwar movement.

    Alcatraz, statue of liberty, the white house, many museums in d.c, Washingtons monument, some ski resorts have daily capacity as well. Just to name a few that I have experienced.

    Could you give a few examples for “other places”?! Thank you.

    I understand the need for conservation, but hopefully they will not be as drastic as some environmentalists want.

    I will be contributing my comments as well. My hope is that decisions have not already been made and this whole process must be done just to say they did it and the final decisions will keep the park open and accessible to all, not just the few who can get access.

    Just think if Yosemite turns into what other places have become?

    Your family vacation could look like this. Went to Yosemite, took lots of pictures from faraway, but we only got passes for part of the family to go to X. The next day we went Y because those were the only passes available when we really wanted to go to Z.
