October '06 was a great month for your humble RCG webmaster! In addition to attending Greg Casini's farewell dinner, at Denver's Las Delicias restaurant (Angela Medberry, Mike Mueller, Mark Collier, Roger Singer, JoLynn Jarboe, Jason Wells, and a bunch of others were there as well!). I was also able to visit the birthplace of Sierra Club founder John Muir while on a road trip around Scotland!  And, equally special, I also had the good fortune of interviewing Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope for an October 31st broadcast at Boulder/Denver radio station KGNU.

The guest speaker for our April 12, 2005 meeting was the Sierra Club's very own Clayton Daughenbaugh - National conservation organizer for the our public lands team. Clayton presented a fascinating slide show on Public Lands at Risk, asking us: This land is our land from Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to Utah's spectacular red rock canyons, all the way to the cypress swamps of Florida's Everglades. Or is it? According to our government's current policies it might as well belong to the oil and gas industry!

Clayton provided this background during his April 12, 2005 presentation to our group: On January 4, 2002 the Interior Department ordered the employees of the Bureau of Land Management to make oil or gas development on federally managed land their top priority. Since then, just in Utah, the protective status of over 2 million acres has been revoked. In the last four years, a land area equal to that of Texas and Oklahoma combined has been opened to oil and gas development, logging, and mining. Hence the title, public lands at risk.

Charlie and Judy at work!
FastTracks was a transportation initiative that was strongly supported by the Rachel Carson Group during the November 2004 campaign. In this picture Charlie Oriez and RCG Chair Judy Johnson are deeply involved in the FastTracks petitioning process in early 2004. FasTracks was approved by the voters, much to the delight of the Rachel Carson Group, Charlie, and everyone involved! Unfortunately Charlie passed-away, the following year, and is greatly missed by the Rachel Carson Group and his Sierra Club family...
