I used to take my vehicles to the Jiffy Lube in Chino Hills(Peyton & Grand), which is owned by Allied Lube, Inc., until last year. They indicated on their paperwork that they had checked the fluid level in the manual trans and all was good. Eight hundred miles later, BOOM, trans goes out. Box of net...

Edison has a summer rate plan which cuts your cost per kwh by about 1/4 to 1/3, depending on which program you elect. My current cost is under .10 per kwh. The catch is, they install an interupter on your AC unit that will allow them to shut it down in case of over demand in your area. I have been o...

And then what?
Let me rephrase the question, what I am asking is, if the status quo is achieved and the FWS and BLM correct the CH, BO, and the RAMP documents, what would be the next course of action in the over all scheme of things?

Thanks,

Bill

Thanks Vince.
Therefore, we want status quo until FWS and BLM get the deficiencies corrected in their CH, BO, and RAMP documents.
And then what?

Sorry if this is redundant

Help me understand how this What this means is that the court has clearly identified where the BLM and FWS were errant in formulating the BO and RAMP and arriving at the preferred alternative that reopens some of the temporary closures without restrictions and, among other things, creates the AMA.

They've been using junk science for years Yeah, their junk science is recognized and the closures go up.

Here's a question....How are the LEO's going to check each camp for permitted vehicles without actually counting the number of vehicles in the camp and comparing number of hits to the number of vehicles counted? Plus, how would they be able to isolate a particular camp. Take Gecko for example, just ...

Vince.....You took the words right out of my mouth. That has got to be one of the best "put it in perspective" articles I have read yet!
