12B Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 Bdletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter LETTERS, from page 11B veteran. That's a better deal than he made with the terrorists. Jan Klement Quincy Incentive to work It's really something to read a recent writer's opinion of ignorance. The way he talks about the plight of the Democrats. I guess I am one of these 10 percenters because I have a job to do, I get up in the morning and I do it with pride. I don't get subsistence. I'm not in a union and I have a bank account. I guess that makes me a right-wing extremist. By the way, I'm self-employed so you won't see a hope 2012 bumper sticker on my truck. You have way too much time on your hands. I'll put good money that somewhere in your past there is dirty money somewhere; some poor slob who was in steel, oil, timber, or some other horrible business that earned the money for you to sit on your butt and write and write and write letters about how screwed up anyone who has worked and made money is. You talk about people being against obama (small o for a pathetic man) because he is black. You have it wrong. He was elected because he was black. It doesn't matter what color a person is anymore. It's what they stand for. And this guy stands for anything but the United States of America. Since he has taken office, it has become increasingly difficult to make money at my business; and, yes, that is what I meant. ! would like to make money. I am disgusted when I have people around me that don't have jobs, but are on some kind of government payout driving nicer cars than me and are able to take trips because people like you think we should all be equal. No, you should get what you work for and nothing more. I have a slogan for you and your other bleeding hearts: Never underestimate the power of stupid people in a large group. You know it all has to come crashing down because you are taking away our incentive to work. What happens then? Mike Curran Qumcv vegetables, guests.

Tickets $30, Starting in October, the Plumas National Forest will be surveying forest visitors for the national visitor use monitoring program. Through an agreement with Plumas National Forest, staff from the Sierra Institute will conduct the surveys in developed and dispersed recreation sites and along Forest Service roads. "These interviewers are gathering important information on visits to the Plumas National Forest, so please pull over for an interview if you get the chance," said Earl Ford, Plumas National Forest supervisor. "The survey is voluntary and all the information you give is confidential." Surveyors will be wearing bright orange vests and may be near a sign that reads "traffic survey ahead." They may be out in all kinds of adverse weather conditions. Individual national forests conduct this year-long survey every five years, using a standardized service-wide approach. It has already been conducted at least twice on every national forest in the country Each new round updates the information previously gathered and provides a look at recreation trends over time. The survey provides estimates of the number of people recreating on national forest lands, the activities they engage in, visitor satisfaction and local economic impacts of recreation. The information is useful for forest planning, as well as local and state level planning. The basic interview lasts about eight minutes. Every other visitor is asked a few additional questions, which may take an additional five minutes. Questions address locations and duration of visits, size of visitor groups, and satisfaction with facilities and services provided. About a third of the visitors will be asked to complete a confidential survey on recreation spending during their trip. The visitor use monitoring program will continue from October 2014 through September 2015. Survey dates and sites are selected through a random sampling process, so visitors may see surveyors at different location on different dates. The survey is voluntary and all visitors encountering surveyors are eligible to participate. More information on the survey is available at the national visitor use monitoring website: fs.fed.us/recreation/ programs/nvum. announces The Lassen National Forest Supervisor's Office will be closed for business Thursday, Oct. 9, and Friday, Oct. 10, as a result of staff being divertedto help manage a regional celebration in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
