Concerned about OHV damage to national parks

I am one of the many, many Moab residents who have great concern about the damage that allowing OHVs on roads in Utah national parks would cause, and appreciate Rep. John Curtis stating that he wanted to know the opinions of people in his district. While it is important that a member of Congress like Curtis listens to and represents constituent concerns, let us not forget that national parks belong to all Americans, and are to be preserved unimpaired for the benefit of future generations under the National Park Service Organic Art.

Better locations for a truck stop

I was born and raised in Moab in the ‘50s and ‘60s. My mom and dad were born and lived here all their lives. My ancestors were pioneers in Moab and LaSal in the late 1800s. I returned 20 years ago to my homeland. Like most Americans, most of my life savings are tied up in my house and the lot it sits on. I’ve lived in my manufactured home in Spanish Valley for 13 years. I am now retired on a fixed income. I now find that I am one of the unfortunates who will be living downwind from the proposed Love’s Truck Stop.
