Good question, Katrina.

Over $77,000 was allocated for cable fence from Burned Area Emergency Rehabilitation monies and National Fish and a Wildlife Foundation grant funds.

The funded fence was never installed along JF Road as promised by BLM in the monies/grant request to secure this funding.

The funds were diverted to pay Chief Ranger Nelson and his cohorts overtime during Willow Fire Closure. If you passed the kiosk area during this period, you would have seen those funds at work in the form of Ranger Nelson socializing with several subordinates (usually female).

This is not to say that some law enforcement was happening at the time by more dedicated and conscientous rangers on Juniper Flats. It would be interesting to know who was doing actual work and writing violations while Nelson was having his tea party.

In light of the subsequent direct attack on that same cultural site at Cottonwood Springs by Ranger Nelson and his OHV Volunteers (with the support of Field Manager Tim Read), it is time to write your Congressperson.
