Wayne Jenkins in AJC: Proposed national forest land sale sacrifices future

The executive director of Georgia ForestWatch may be a voice crying in the wilderness: "President Bush's proposal to sell off more than 300,000 acres of national forest lands in 35 states, 4,500 in rapidly growing North and central Georgia, is flat wrong. Using funds generated by selling thousands of acres of Georgia's priceless publicly held forests for assisting rural education is neither what is best for our forests and the people who use them nor what is best for local communities and schools."
