Forest Service ... Backing Up in The Globe

News this a.m. is that the Forest Service is "rethinking" its plans to clear-cut The Globe below Blowing Rock ... no thanks to Madam Foxx. Thanks to over a thousand angry comments flowing in to the District Ranger.

Foxx has been no help whatsoever. She contemptuously told members of the Blowing Rock town council to quit "pressuring" her (how dare them express an opinion contrary to The Madam's!), and she refuses to sponsor legislation that would designate the area as "scenic" to protect it.

No surprise. She also objected to the Doc & Merle Watson Scenic Byway.
