Think New Mexico recommends refocusing the PRC on its core mission of regulating utilities and telecommunications, deregulating the motor carrier industry (as the federal government did more than three decades ago), and enhancing PRC commissioner qualifications.  More

 Public Service Campaign Educates Public on Wild Animal Loss
   (August 16, 2011 - Alamogordo, NM) 
Wildfires around the country have been brutal on the landscape, and it has cost millions and millions of dollars to fight them this year. But a father-son attorney team from Elko, Nevada, say not only have the lands sustained a loss to trees and structures, but they say the loss of wildlife is tremendous, and "the current fire-fighting and grazing policies by the federal government are destroying our wildlife." 

Elko, Nevada, lawyer Grant Gerber, and his son, Travis,  have rolled-out the “Smoked Bear” public service ad campaign. They are on a mission to spread the word about their concerns over the  current fire-fighting and grazing policies on public lands, that they say are destroying our wildlife.

Gerber Sr. says increased livestock grazing is the key right now, to controlling the grass, weeds and brush that fuel range, wildland and forest fires. According to Gerber, “It is time that people  understand that millions of animals are burning up every year." Gerber believes that most of these fires are preventable, and he comes armed with figures citing that the average acreage blackened by wildfires in Nevada alone,  have risen from 25,000 acres prior to 1980, to as high as 600,000 acres in recent years.

Gerber told the Elko Daily Free Press that,  “The environmentalists’ goals are to get everything back to natural, when there weren’t deer here. I want it to be the best it can be, and the only way is if agriculture manages the land. Federal agencies can’t manage it,” he said. “They’re fire watchers, not firefighters.”

In a recent story in the Elko Daily News, Jerry Ingersoll, acting Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest supervisor for the U.S. Forest Service, disagreed with Gerber. He said the "increase in fires is mainly due to the abundance of the hard-to-kill cheatgrass and invasive weeds that have spread over the years, not agency policies."  "Eradicating cheatgrass and supporting a sustainable grazing program are the best ways to control forest and range fires," Ingersoll said.

“Invasive weeds and cheatgrass are a major challenge for us,” he said, adding that the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest has an active fuels program and works closely with the Nevada Division of Forestry, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the counties and governor’s office to address the cheatgrass issue.

Gerber said there was cheatgrass when he was young, and he maintains the way to control cheatgrass is by increased livestock grazing. “It’s good throughout the year. It’s good cattle feed, not the best but good,” he said.

Gerber and crew made a stop in Springerville, Arizona on Monday. He and his crew, including "Smoked Bear," met with local ranchers and concerned citizens. They also stopped by the Round Mountain Middle School and met some of the younger residents of Eager-Springerville, where the Wallow Fire cause multitudes of devastation.

Local radio personality, Harvey T. Twite, contacted Otero County Commission Chairman, Ronnie Rardin, about having Gerber and Crew make an appearance while in the region. Rardin welcomed the opportunity. It was the first public meeting ever attended to by Smoked Bear, to which he received a rousing round of applause when he entered the chambers.

Gerber and son, Travis, made a presentation of one of the shovels used to re-open a road that had been closed.

 Public Service Campaign Educates Public on Wild Animal Loss
   (August 16, 2011 - Alamogordo, NM) 
Wildfires around the country have been brutal on the landscape, and it has cost millions and millions of dollars to fight them this year. But a father-son attorney team from Elko, Nevada, say not only have the lands sustained a loss to trees and structures, but they say the loss of wildlife is tremendous, and "the current fire-fighting and grazing policies by the federal government are destroying our wildlife." 

Elko, Nevada, lawyer Grant Gerber, and his son, Travis,  have rolled-out the “Smoked Bear” public service ad campaign. They are on a mission to spread the word about their concerns over the  current fire-fighting and grazing policies on public lands, that they say are destroying our wildlife.

Gerber Sr. says increased livestock grazing is the key right now, to controlling the grass, weeds and brush that fuel range, wildland and forest fires. According to Gerber, “It is time that people  understand that millions of animals are burning up every year." Gerber believes that most of these fires are preventable, and he comes armed with figures citing that the average acreage blackened by wildfires in Nevada alone,  have risen from 25,000 acres prior to 1980, to as high as 600,000 acres in recent years.

Gerber told the Elko Daily Free Press that,  “The environmentalists’ goals are to get everything back to natural, when there weren’t deer here. I want it to be the best it can be, and the only way is if agriculture manages the land. Federal agencies can’t manage it,” he said. “They’re fire watchers, not firefighters.”

In a recent story in the Elko Daily News, Jerry Ingersoll, acting Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest supervisor for the U.S. Forest Service, disagreed with Gerber. He said the "increase in fires is mainly due to the abundance of the hard-to-kill cheatgrass and invasive weeds that have spread over the years, not agency policies."  "Eradicating cheatgrass and supporting a sustainable grazing program are the best ways to control forest and range fires," Ingersoll said.

“Invasive weeds and cheatgrass are a major challenge for us,” he said, adding that the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest has an active fuels program and works closely with the Nevada Division of Forestry, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the counties and governor’s office to address the cheatgrass issue.

Gerber said there was cheatgrass when he was young, and he maintains the way to control cheatgrass is by increased livestock grazing. “It’s good throughout the year. It’s good cattle feed, not the best but good,” he said.

Gerber and crew made a stop in Springerville, Arizona on Monday. He and his crew, including "Smoked Bear," met with local ranchers and concerned citizens. They also stopped by the Round Mountain Middle School and met some of the younger residents of Eager-Springerville, where the Wallow Fire cause multitudes of devastation.

Local radio personality, Harvey T. Twite, contacted Otero County Commission Chairman, Ronnie Rardin, about having Gerber and Crew make an appearance while in the region. Rardin welcomed the opportunity. It was the first public meeting ever attended to by Smoked Bear, to which he received a rousing round of applause when he entered the chambers.

Gerber and son, Travis, made a presentation of one of the shovels used to re-open a road that had been closed. In addition, they presented the Otero Commission with a new axe, in recognition of the Commission's efforts to allow grazing and controlled logging back into the forests, in the hope of lowering the fire danger by better managing the forests .

"Bullying: This is really a societal issue. We live in a bully nation, where we believe
              we have the right to push other countries around to protect our own interest."
                                                                                                            -- Dr. Bea Etta Harris

             "
That national attitude plays out in all sorts of ways—in our community. It plays out in
             parents bullying administrators because the parent believes their child is more important
             than someone else’s child, or that their interests are more important than other’s interests.
             They may even believe that their child’s skill or gift is more important than another child’s.
             It can be called elitism, but really it’s a kind of bullying. . . That my rights are more
             important than your rights. How can we teach tolerance, the value of diversity, and just the
             value of human life, when we are not caring and thoughtful human beings."
