CA4WDC NRC South Monthly Report - Dec 2011

Recreation advocate article to appear in Law Book: I wrote an article in 2008 advocating recreation inclusion in public lands management policy that will be published in law book designed for classroom use in U.S. Law schools.  The article will appear in the Natural Resources Law 2nd Edition, authored by Jan Laitos, University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

It is an honor to have an article selected for publication in a law book.  I believe this represents the beginning of an era of change in litigation and management.

NRC South Report - November 2011

Legal Update: The Truckhaven lawsuit is moving with the final preliminary briefs being filed on Nov 4.  There is a pending Nov 30, 2011 evidentiary hearing scheduled.  State Parks is challenging that some of the documents submitted by recreation interests should not be admitted as part of the administrative record.  Opening briefs and counter briefs will be filed in late December and January.  As CEQA issues receive docket preference, a ruling is expected as early as April 2012.

Letter of support for Daphne Greene

In 2012, the California Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division will celebrate its 40th anniversary. In 1972, and now, the citizens of California recognize the importance of a well-managed program that provides OHV opportunities while protecting the environment. Continuing that tradition of excellence is important and Daphne Greene has been a big part in contributing to the financial health of the California OHV Program.

Governor Brown's recent announcement that Daphne Greene's appointment as Deputy Director of the OHMVR Division will be terminated on December 31, 2011 is of great concern to all off-highway enthusiastists.

Please send a letter and offer your support of the reappointment of Daphne Greene as Deputy Director of the OHMVR Division within California State Parks. Daphne has provided strong leadership and integrity to build a model program that is solvent with self-sustaining funding from the user community.

Open letter to OHV from Daphne Greene

It has been my privilege to serve the OHV community under three administrations; first as a Commissioner appointed by Governor Davis, then as Deputy Director when I was appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger, and most recently, to serve in this position under Governor Brown while he considers and develops his own team for the future. At this time, I want to let you know that my term as Deputy Director will end on December 31st.

Marines of the future

The Associated Press published an article about the Post War Marines: smaller, less focused on land war. (http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_AFTER_IRAQ_MARINES?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT)

I found the article interesting and informative.  I have been following General Amos and read some of his past statements regarding his vision for the future of the Marines as that has a direct bearing on an issue that is important to me: expansion of 29 Palms Marine Base and Johnson Valley OHV Area.
