What Lassen did, out of Staff Writer swillia rns@lassen news.corn Three northeastern Cali- fornia counties have joined with the Lassen County Board of Supervisors in ex- pressing their dissatisfaction with the recently approved Motorized Travel Manage- ment Plans for the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta-Trinity national forests as they seek greater recreational access for off-highway vehicle users. In a joint letter from the boards of supervisors in Lassen, Plumas, Shasta and Butte counties, supervisors wrote, "The proposed plans are unacceptable and need to be revisited." Lassen County District 3 Supervisor Lloyd Keefer has complained loudly about the proposed plan and has repeat- edly asked the Forest Service lowed on the Modoc National Forest when compared to the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta- Trinity national forests. According to information delivered to the board, the Modoc National Forest al- lowed mixed vehicle use on 513 miles of road -- 89.2 per- cent -- within its boundaries. The Lassen National For- est allowed mixed vehicle use on only 9.3 miles of road -- 1.3 percent -- within its boundaries. Keefer also noted there were 504 "dispersed recre- ation sites with motor vehicle access" in the Lassen Nation- al Forest prior to the adoption of the new rules when the number plummets to 65. Keefer said the new rules would restrict "those hunters and fishers who have been camping in their favorite spots for many years." Keefer added he saw "an- to,address his and the .other other red{Iag?' supervisors concerns befor, Wlit tff Lfissen National making a final decision. ForeSt identified only 504 "The letter addresses the lack of coordination we had between the Forest Service and the counties' involve- ment," Keefer said. "I think that's the main issue we need to address." But Keefer also noted the such campsites, the Modoc National Forest found 1,168, and the Shasta-Trinity Na- tional Forest identified 1,252. "Did the Lassen really in- ventory all their dispersed recreation sites?" Keefer asked. "That could be an issue 504 sites, they're only approv- ing 65." "National forests are part of the local fabric," the super- visors' letter read. "Their roads and motorized trails are used for recreation and access to the forest's re- sources. These pursuits gen- erate revenue for our rural communities. Such opportu- nities need to be maintained by all users, including OHV enthusiasts. This goal should be embraced by all, including the Forest Service. We should work together as neighbors to further commu- nity needs. Towards this end, we are requesting the Forest Service to revisit the pro- posed Travel Management planning efforts of the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta- Trinity national forests." The letter also criticized the process used by the Forest Service. "The planning process needs to be ope,,tvanspar- ent and collaborative, espe- cially when prominent pub- lic resources are involved," the supervisors' letter reads. "Unfortunately, the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta- Trinity national forests have only gone through the motions."

The Prattville monitoring site recorded 3.66 inches of precipitation for the month, a mix of rain and water from snow, a couple of inches less than the long-term average for the month, but it still brings the season total up to 22.12 inches, or 90 percent of average. February snowfall on the West Shore was 27 inches, just slightly less than average for the month. However, when added to the very heavy earlier snows, our season to- tal now stands at 160 inches, or 152 percent of average. The disparity between ac- cumulated snowfall and ac- cumulated water is largely because area snowfall has tended towards the "dry" side due to cold tempera- tures and rainfall has been limited. Still, the 90 percent of aver- age figure for total precipita- tion puts the Basin in a better position at this point than the past several seasons. If an average March devel- ops; residents can expect to receive something in excess of four inches of total precipi- tation, including the water content of about 21 inches of snowfall.
