Duane, this dam Scott has expressed building at the downstream end of the big Lagoon in front of the hotpools, if that is his true intention, is a bad idea in my opinion. To raise the level of the Lagoon, any substantial amount, would require a significant amount of material, whether rocks, branches, sandbags or whatever else Scott may be thinking of using to build this dam. Its not like the USFS is not going to notice, or put up with something that big. Is part of Scotts plan to remove any artificial materials, like sandbags from this dam, before the winter floods come? Or, are these things destined to end up downstream somewhere snagged in the trees, bushes or rocks. Regarding selling things at the springs, Scotts tent, with his sign expressing things for sale, is not what many of us want to look at in one of the main social areas ( the grass hill ) at the springs. Thats just our opinion on the matter. No one will complain about his efforts of clean up around DCHS, or any good advice he may be giving to visitors about how to help protect the beauty of that area. I have met Scott a few times and he has acted in a friendly manner, though I am a bit concerned about this report of him possibly having a weapon at the springs. I have no personel experience of whether that is true or not. Over the many years I have visited the springs, the spot where Scott is keeping his tent at DCHS has been popular because of its shade and flatness. Scott's tent has been at that spot constantly of late, giving no other visitors the opportunity to use it, I don't think thats fair to the other DCHS visitors. I couldn't tell you what the USFS intend to do about Scott. In talking to Scott the few times I have met him, he frankly doesn't seem at all concerned about the USFS, and what they think of him. When it comes to DCHS, Scott should consider that he is just one part of the larger, diverse community of people who visit these special springs, and he should realize that certain things he is doing down there, will not go un-noticed, or necessarily be looked upon as positive activities for the area.
