Paradise lost in Steep Hollow Canyon?
« on: November 11, 2011, 04:08:42 am »

Danny and Lori McMellon built a little patio where they set a bench, down a short way from their house, overlooking Steep Hollow Canyon near Rollins Lake. Pines rise above the gravely creekbed below.

Nearby is an oak where they built a treehouse for their grandchildren, and a play area has a geodesic climbing structure set farther back.

It's a lovely spot.

Until the weekends, when partiers show up on their quads or in four-wheel-drive pickup trucks or maybe on dirt bikes, climbing along the creek.

And until the bullets start flying.

When a small percentage of folks abuse the system (think "green" well-connected companies who take the money and run), it's "only a small percentage and shouldn't reflect on the greater community" if they fit the administrative agenda, yet when it goes against the agenda, it only takes a small percentage to put a halt to any related activity, e.g., the 1% mentioned in this article.

I wonder what an Andy Rooney like character would say about that?
What are you supposed to do when you see an "endangered" animal eating an "endangered" plant?
