Letter: Huck isn't barred from public land; his ruinous machine is
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

After two decades of reading Rainier Huck complain that he's locked out of federal land, it's become very tiresome ("Ruling disenfranchises Utahns from public lands," Forum, Nov. 26). He's not locked out; it's his environmentally destructive machine that he insists upon taking that's locked out.

And it's not all federal land. He has a huge amount of federal land he can use up that way. But, that land becomes scarred, eroded and ugly, with little vegetation left and the remaining soil packed into concrete.

So he covets the federal land that's still pristine and beautiful. And the reason why it's still pristine and beautiful is that his environmentally destructive machine is not allowed there. Why can't he understand that?
