As with all organizations there are good and less than good people. 
People also move on and those that replace them may or may not agree 
with what was previously done. This is why policy must be made. 
Without a voice to the people in power, we are at the mercy of the 
policy makers who may think we don't care what they do. All comment 
for the Roadless Area management petition must be received by the 
Arizona Game and Fish Department by 31 August 2006. The meeting to 
night is just for information and questions. They will not take oral
