I attended the Scotchman Peaks Open House on June 6. I want to thank the staff from Sen. Jim Risch’s office for being in attendance as well as Forest Service personnel. As you may know the Senator is considering re-introducing a wilderness proposal bill for Scotchman Peaks. His staff was there to listen to constituents’ questions, disseminate information and hear expressions of support for the proposed wilderness bill.
There were good displays that addressed the concerns that I heard people at the Clark Fork meeting bring up. I was able to speak to each staff member and express my support of the wilderness bill. It was refreshing to have an opportunity to be heard personally and not just through an opinion letter.
