State Park = Changes?

Recommended Posts

People have been floating it since Memorial Day.  I have an outfitter and have not seen any more problems than we normally have with floaters having mishaps.

I just posted in the general discussions board. NPR had a report of the state may possibly sell three state park land as there is no money to develop them. The eleven Point was one mentioned. The scary part to me is the talk of selling it off to a lead mining company. Some will say this would bring badly needed jobs to the area but so would a state park. And the state park doesn't include mine waste washing into the Eleven Point.

They already tried and failed to pass something that would require the state to sell it off.  The latest ploy is to not develop it at all, which is what they are currently doing.  My guess is they will quietly try to sell it off in the future when people forget we have the land there.  Very short sighted not to develop it.  A state park in the poorest county in Missouri could really help the area, but instead they are being petty because they hate Jay Nixon and he bought the land.  Have not heard about the mining angle, but I would raise hell if they tried that as it would ultimately pollute the river downstream of Riverton.  The area below the Arkansas line is already stinking from the massive chicken operation they recently started.

Brian, agree with everything you said.  You are closer to this situation than any of us I hope you will keep us updated on what is going on, so we can make our voices heard to our elected officials.  

As you had suggested I called the Forest Service and asked for updates on the Thomasville and Cane Bluff access.
