Matt Winey: Don’t stop battling

To the editor

The residents of Moffat County and the city of Craig won a good battle against the extreme environmental movement as Colowyo is allowed to keep operating. But it is not time to quit battling. There are the issues of Trapper and their environmental impact issues, the sage grouse issue and the closure to the public to many of our public lands.

As Commissioner John Kinkaid has indicated the EPA is no longer the friend of rural communities.

Join us today at the Bell Tower build, room 201, at 6 p.m. as we join in on a national webinar listening and learning how some of the states of the U.S. are making plans to battle back against the over reach of the EPA.

It is foolish to think groups like the Wild Earth Guardians are going to quit trying to get rid of the use of fossil fuels just because of one battle they lost. The EPA is more than happy to help organizations like Wild Earth Guardians as they attempt to make the rural areas of our country people less.
