Before the election, I commented that very little, if anything, would change if Bush became President. I didn't expect much change, but I didn't believe Bush would actually appoint LIBERAL DEMOCRATS to high office positions. Fran Mainella, a liberal Democrat, has been appointed as the director of the U.S. Park Service. Mainella brought with her two deputy directors to help her carry out the Bruce Babbitt/Al Gore environmental agenda. Deputy Director Randy Jones comes to the top office after serving as park superintendent at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. He has opposed any private land in the park and refused to enter any private land owned by inholders within the park boundaries. He even tried to prevent a 73-year-old widow from repairing a bridge on her private property. Don Murphy, also appointed deputy director, has previously been in charge of "Americans for Heritage and Recreation," which was instrumental in approving the CARA legislation. 


These people are opposed to multiple uses of not only the parkland but also privately owned land adjacent to the parks. They are backing a new initiative to support park corridors, which means that private land cannot be used for grazing, farming, timber harvesting, recreation or other human activities if located next to a US park.


How did these people get their jobs? Interior Secretary Gale Norton appointed them, however it may be interesting to note that Fran Mainella formerly worked for the President's brother Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida. Isn't brother Jeb supposed to be a Republican? How did Fran get that job?


These people favor closing roads, shutting down campgrounds and closing off most of the park areas to the general public.


Please give me credit for being correct when I started prior to the election that very little, if anything, would change.
