Your Senator Has Called For a Massive National Monument Designation in Utah

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Creating this “National Monument” is a back door way to close another 1.4 Million Acres to motorized recreation by bypassing Congress.  This time Utah.  Next time your State?  Is this something you will ignore, thinking it can’t happen here?  Or will you join us and let your congressperson know your opposition to this?  If enough of us speak up we will be heard!!!

Your Senator Has Called For a Massive National Monument Designation in Utah!

Send an Email to Your Senator Who Supports Designation Urging Him or Her to Reconsider 

Recently 14 Senators, none of whom are from Utah, wrote President Obama urging him to designate 1.8 million acres of the Greater Canyonlands in Utah as a National Monument.  The letter stated, “…we write to encourage you to consider using your authority under the Antiquities Act to declare Greater Canyonlands a national monument.” One of these Senators was from your state!

Please send an email letting your Senator know that massive, inappropriate National Monument designations are not the way forward in Utah or elsewhere.

You may recall that ARRA alerted you about a letter that non-motorized recreation organizations sent to President Obama roughly a year and a half ago. That group was urging the designation of 1.4 million acres in the Greater Canyonlands as a National Monument.  The new letter signed by Senators from states such as Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Vermont calls for President Obama to designate an additional 400,000 acres more than asked for in the original letter.  Never mind that just the 400,000 additional acres alone are more than half the size of the entire state of Rhode Island.  Where does it stop?

Also, keep in mind that there is an ongoing process in the Eastern part of Utah known as the Public Lands Initiative about which the Moab Sun News recently reported:

“In what has in recent months seemed to be an unbridgeable divide, there are signs of growing consensus between the Grand County Council and representatives from the recreation industry in developing a land-use recommendation for Congressman Rob Bishop’s (R-Utah) Utah Public Lands Initiative.”

Today responsible recreation is being jeopardized in Utah – tomorrow it might be your state!

The 14 Senators who want to forgo an ongoing existing local process in favor of a unilateral designation from Washington, D.C. are:

Dick Durbin (D-IL), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Ed Markey (D-MA), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Patty Murray (D-WA), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Bernie Sanders (D-VT).

Mike Bates Is Battling Back From His Spinal Cord Injury.

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Mike 1And you can help…

That guy…the smart, funny, tough, talented one who works hard and plays harder. He tirelessly serves his country, his many friends, strangers in need, and most of all his family. He lives every day with amazing love, passion, and dedication to those around him. That guy is Mike Bates.

On November 25, 2011, Mike was dealt his greatest challenge of all…while motorcycling with his son Nick, Mike suffered a terrible accident which caused a debilitating spinal cord injury. This level of injury is often fatal and multiple times in the hours and days following, the medical professionals didn’t know if Mike would survive, much less do so without severe brain damage…but they also didn’t know Mike.

He survived with all his mental capabilities intact. Due to the efforts of some great docs and nurses, the support of his friends and family, but mostly due to his own toughness and persistence, Mike has made amazing progress in his physical recovery. He has re-learned to breathe, use a computer, and even walk short distances with assistance. As always, Mike has faced this challenge with determination, bravery, and his ever present smile.

Mike 4The next step in Mike’s recovery is a stem-cell treatment in Panama in August. Due to the slow progress of stem cell research and limited available trials, Mike needs to travel out of the country and self-fund this experimental treatment. To cover the cost, which may help Mike in critical quality of life areas, he is launching a Crowdfunding campaign…..and like everything Mike does, its guaranteed to be fun and unique.

For Mike’s whole life he’s been the one helping others, and he honestly struggles being the one asking for help, but he needs your assistance. If you’re able to donate, or help share Mike’s story, or even just want to offer up some additional prayers while staying up to date on Mike’s progress with the Panama trip and the results of this experimental treatment, please go to:

Thank you for your past and continued support and prayers, Steve Bates, D36 Redding Dirt Riders 109R

All proceeds to benefit the Help Hope Live 501(c)3 Southwest Spinal Cord Injury fund for Mike Bates

Pioneer OHV Legislator Honored

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Back in the early 1970’s, OHV organizations approached a Democrat and a Republican state legislator, and offered an idea to them in a bipartisan manner to create an Off Highway Vehicle Program for the State of California due to the fast paced growth of OHV recreation.  GENE CHAPPIE was one of those legislators.

Gene ChappiGene is now being honored by a recommendation from the County of El Dorado to name State Highway 193 in his honor.

This recommendation was forwarded to State Senator Ted Gaines, also an OHV enthusiast who is initiating the process to make this happen.

Gene, who passed away in 1992, was an avid OHV enthusiast his whole life and will be remembered always for his many contributions to and support of the OHV community.

D36 will send a letter of support for this action to Senator Gaines to show OHV support in Northern California.

For those of you that didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Gene and those of you that did this story about Gene in the Mountain Democrat newspaper is an excellent read.
