ROCKY BARKER

I'm working on a story for this weekend about how Blaine County residents view the Boulder-White Clouds National Monument proposal, a project we are partnering up with our friends at Idaho Public Television for.

But we split up one day and I interviewed Elephant's Perch owner Bob Rosso about resolving recreation conflicts. What he says about how snowmobile and ski conflicts were reconciled in the Boulder Mountains could be used in the larger economic and cultural discussions about the future of the Salmon River country.

Bellingham Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
