    glad to hear they dropped land sales near Stanley.
    I have some other important news to report. Tonight in Pocatello, at the BLM Pocatello Resource Area a meeting is being held on the proposed Dairy Syncline phosphate mine. A possible land swap that could occur entails Simplot buying out the patented mine claims on Caribou Mountain in the Caribou City Roadless Area in exchange for Forest Service land the Simplot Co. wants near their proposed phosphate mine. The comment period ends May 13. Please go to the Roadlessland.org website (on this webpage) and see pictures of Caribou Mtn in the Caribou City RA. This is the last best chance of getting those patented mine claims bought out of the Caribou City Roadless Area. comments can be sent to Soda Springs Ranger District-Caribou-Targhee NF (jisaacs@fs.fed.us) or the Pocatello BLM Resource Area.

    The name of the mine proposal is the proposed Dairy Syncline Mine. The email for the BLM is (dairy_syncline_eis@blm.gov) To view photos of Caribou Mountain on (roadlessland.org) click on stat of Idaho, choose Caribou NF, select Caribou City RA and last select the Pole Creek RA to see the glaciated north slopes of Caribou Mountain.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
