THE REAL REASON FOR MILL CLOSURE

In his latest broadside, Paul Young blames the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance for the closing of the Fredonia mill (Forum March 13). The Fredonia mill closed because there were no longer enough big trees left to cut on the Kaibab National Forests. Further, the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance has never even worked on Kaibab National Forest issues.

Often, Young either fails to learn the facts or else ignores them when they do not support his views. Public debate is a great part of democracy, but with discussion comes the responsibility to tell the truth.David Scholten
