Letter: Let the leases expire

Let the leases expire

April 1. Big day. No, not April Fools’. It’s the Bureau of Land Management Day! Thompson Divide’s Day.

BLM granted Ursa and SG their latest round of lease extensions in February 2013. These expire on April 1.

If BLM grants yet another extension, that will be two years more for 13 years on an original 10-year application, which was unsound from the start.

BLM, step away from the game. Just say “no.”

Let the Thompson Divide, which supports the valley’s rural livelihoods, be.
