Breaking News: Eight Dollar Road Blocked Again
24 Mar 2005 16:32 GMT
Reports coming in this morning indicate that the Eight Dollar Road is blockaded by an activist suspended over the road in a bi-pod, effectively keeping log trucks out of the Fiddler Timber Sale.
Yarding and hauling of timber at the Fiddler sale began recently. This morning's blockade is an attempt to halt this work and to highlight the ongoing logging of old growth reserves. Meanwhile, the courts continue deliberating on the merits of two separate cases that will determine if this activity is legal.
