The Friends of Gold Butte does not speak for all of us in Nevada. Stanley Paher’s July 23 commonsense commentary in the Review-Journal regarding the Gold Butte National Monument were much appreciated. Sadly, the powers-that-be in Washington, D.C., did not bother to seek input from the local communities before making the monument designation. Many of us look forward to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s fair and pragmatic assessment.
