In-Depth Information

  • “Locoweed Closes 48,000 Acres of Alogones Dunes Off-Highway Vehicle Park”-By Don Fife (Feb. 2002)
    The Bureau of Land Management is acquiescing to an environmental lawsuit to use a noxious weed, Piersons milkvetchor Astralagus magdalenae variety perirsonii, to close 48,000 acres of Americas premier off-highway vehicle park at Glamis Sand Dunes, Imperial County, California. Commonly known as Piersons locoweed, a poisonous noxious weed, it is normally against state and county laws to propagate on ones property.
  • “Endangered Species Act is racketeering” — Don Fife (Guest Commentary, The Leader, Lucerne Valley, California,
    February 6, 2002)
    The Bureau of Land Management is trying to shut down Dave Fishers family ranch, saying that the cattle compete with the desert tortoise for food, but the truth is that the greatest threat to the tortoise is the incompetence of the BLM biologists.
  • “USDA Recognizes Limestone Filler-Extenders as Saving Millions of Barrels of Oil”-by Don Fife (National Association of Mining Districts, February 2, 2002)
    Limestone makes up 50 percent of all vehicle tires, replacing millions of barrels of crude oil that would otherwise need to be imported for the production of rubber. President Bush directed federal agencies to expedite energy-related projects, including production of minerals and filler extenders such as high-grade limestone on National Forest Lands.
  • “Environmental Hysteria Can Kill”-By Don Fife (National Association of Mining Districts, January 2002)
    Californias State Element is gold and the State Rock is serpentine, the major source of asbestos. Asbestos hysteria has cost the taxpayers billions of dollars for unnecessary school asbestos removal and caused the loss of the Challenger astronauts.
  • “Regarding Canadian Lynx and ESA” — U.S. Representative Richard W. Pombo (Congressional Record, January 24, 2002, page E-27)
    Congressman Pombo points out that endangered plants were secretly placed on Donald Fifes property in an attempt to close about 30,000 acres of the highest mineral valued land in southern
    California.
  • “Law Gone Loco”-By Don Fife (National Association of Mining Districts, 2001)
    In the hands of environmental extremists and elitist bureaucrats, the well-intentioned Endangered Species Act has gone loco.
  • “BLM’s way of Protecting the Tortoise”-By Don Fife (2001)
    The BLM is trying to shut down Dave Fishers ranch under the guise that the cattle compete with the tortoise for food, but the greatest threat to the tortoise is the incompetence of the BLM wildlife biologists.
