Under a cloak of secrecy, MetalCloak has been hard at work building the 2015 Win-A-Jeep for its debut. And what a debut it was, with the lift, tires and wheels, racks, fenders and other unseen modifications already in place. Thanks to Matson and his crew for the hard work. More is coming, so check back often.
Remember: Due to California gambling laws, we cannot charge in advance for the tickets. We will mail them to you for free and you send back the stubs with your payment to be entered in the drawing. Winners do not need to be present to win. All proceeds benefit CA4WDC.
The Bureau of Land Management California State Director announced that yesterday he signed the Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan for the Clear Creek Management Area (CCMA) in central California. BLM manages over eighty percent of the 75,000 CCMA, which has been subject to massive closures to all human access based on alleged health and safety fears over naturally-occurring asbestos found in the CCMA. Yesterday's decision, which concludes a process started in 2009, adopts the "preferred alternative" which would continue the closures that were originally imposed by BLM on a "temporary" basis in 2005. BLM's announcement was published in today's Federal Register, and can be viewed online HERE.
"This is an unfortunate but perhaps anticlimactic step in a 'planning' process that has dragged on for years," said Don Amador, Western Representative of the BlueRibbon Coalition, a group which has long advocated for greater public access to the CCMA. "Despites decades of regular use, there are virtually no cases of death or injury attributable to exposure to the CCMA's chrysotile asbestos, but BLM made it clear long ago that at the CCMA it will close in fear rather than actively manage," Amador noted. "We will continue to pursue our administrative, judicial, and legislative strategies designed to restore balanced management to the CCMA," Amador concluded.
