No more Tumbling Rapids

In case no one has noticed, the Rayonier Tumbling Rapids Recreation Area has been logged off. This came as a real shock to those of us who have used it for decades. As the sadness sets in over this, it occurs to us that local loggers, sportsmen and tree huggers alike probably will feel the same about this.

Although it is private land, it seems that there might have been at least some discussion about this with the locals. Distant and disassociated Wall Street corporate forest lands management decisions are becoming more sociopathic in nature, just for a quick Chinese buck.

Maybe the Forks Forum could do a little investigative journalism on this to enlighten us as to what the plans are for this property now. Will it be replanted and remain open to the public or now just be closed and the buildings torn down? Please help us feel better about this. Dana and Donna Wilkie Neah Bay
