I appreciate the article y'all wrote about the exemption request from the 2005 Travel Management Rule for the Wallowa Whitman & Malheur National Forests. The title of the article, however, is misleading and I think it deserves a correction.

Nowhere in the exemption do the commissioners ask for "more" access. They very clearly state they want to protect access as it currently exists. The title of the article allows environmental groups to fan the flames of discord over motorized access when they see the word "more" when no such request is being made.
