first_imgWant to keep fracking chemicals out of your favorite swimming hole? Wanna protect your favorite forest from being logged? How about making sure your favorite trails aren’t bulldozed?The U.S. Forest Service is rewriting its plans for the largest national forest system in the South—the Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests. This new plan will guide how these public lands are managed for the next two decades.It’s not just your next adventure that’s at stake. Forest management may sound boring, but it affects every gulp of water and breath of air you take.Extractive timber, mining, and fracking industries are already well represented in the forest planning process and are lobbying heavily to exploit our forests. So far, the recreation community has been out-shouted. About 700,000 acres, or an area larger than Great Smoky Montains National Park—will be opened to logging.If you want to protect the places where you play, now is the time to step up. Tell the U.S. Forest Service to protect your public lands from commercial logging, mining, and fracking. Ask the Forest Service to designate more wilderness, permanently protect roadless areas, build and maintain more trails, and safeguard the health of our rivers and headwaters.Most importantly, as population swells in the Southeast, we need more public lands and stronger protections for them. Popular areas will become overused and degraded without expanding the national forest boundaries.Email your comments to the Forest Service at [email protected] yourself heard. Be a voice for the trees, the trails, and the wild places you love.last_img read more

first_imgWest Brom have received an apology from referees’ chief Mike Riley for the penalty awarded against them in the draw with Chelsea earlier this month. Clarke told wba.co.uk: “We’ve had a phone call from Mike Riley to apologise. “It doesn’t get us any more points but it’s nice of Mike to phone. If he’s apologising, he obviously feels it was the wrong decision. We have to put it behind us now and move forward.” It is the second apology West Brom have received in a month after referee Howard Webb also said sorry for not giving them a penalty during the goalless draw with Stoke. The club have sent a letter to the Premier League and referees’ body Professional Game Match Officials Limited highlighting four penalty decisions that have gone against them in the opening 11 games of the Barclays Premier League season. “The purpose of the letter is to try and provoke discussion,” said Clarke. “It’s not necessarily a discussion between us and the authorities but a discussion between everyone and the authorities to see if there is a way we can improve the game. “If there is technology that can be used to help referees make difficult decisions, which is what they have to do, then let’s look at it and see what we can come up with.” West Brom sit 10th in the table ahead of the derby clash with Aston Villa on Monday.
