Dennis you sound like a petulant child who has lost his right as the line leader in school. NOBODY (but you) said the NPS will be out of CHNS, just that they will have to play by a whole different set of rules that even Judge Boyle cant tinker with. The rest of us like that and see some sanity coming to the Recreation Area. Sorry you dont, but relax and give it awhile, you might find you like being able to drive past a closed access to get to the beach as common sense would dictate should be done!
Soooooooooo lets just try and leave personalities out of this conversation. We can take it as a given that dennis is a petulant, moronic disliked idiot OK?
Let me begin by noteing that the bogus bill that could not and would not stand on it own merit and was included in the defense bill is nothing but pure political pork.
The legislation IMO really changes very little. First and foremost there are those out there that the bill is the holy grail that will eliminate NPS management procedures and techniques at CHNS and that just isn't going to happen.
The bill calls for a review and that was in the works per the FEIS and tweaks can and probably will be implemented. Some changes have already taken place such as the on-line purchase of the beach-access permit and viewing on-line of the mandatory video. IMO the permit process should be changed to allow for month/year purchases be made versus an calendar year permit.
Of course the NPS will no be out of CHNS. BTW in regards to your post,I did not say that they would; however contrary to what some like yourself believe it will not be that "they will have to play by a whole different set of rules that even Judge Boyle cant tinker with."
Will permit fees be eliminated or drastically changed? ... my guess is not.
Will seasonal closures be eliminated or drastically changed? ... nope ... closures may or may not be modified, but they will continue to be implemented for nesting shore birds and sea turtles.
Will night ORV restrictions be eliminated? ... doubtful although the hours may be modified.
Will VFAs be eliminated? ... no ... there may be minor modifications, but they will not be eliminated.
Will pedesterian only access be changed or eliminated? ... doubt it will happen.
Will the judicial system have legal say on ORV management at CHNS? ... certainly will!
My feeling is that "sanity" now is in place at CHNS vs the insanity that was there prior to the consent decree and the implementation of the regulations by the NPS. CURRENTLY If I desire I can drive my ORV at CHNS by paying for a permit for that priviledge, I can fish, I can swim, I can kayak, I can enjoy the flora and fauna and that is a good thing.
