primarily about protecting the riparian zone which is especially important in a drought. The ranchers need to read the terms of their permits and the Forest Service policies that grant them the privilege to use our land. And those on the County Commission who encourage trespass should be prosecuted.

Sheriff needs to just go up there open them. Write to Congress and newspapers, news agencies across the country until they stand down.
