I had a good meeting with National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis this week in Washington. We are both committed to finding a win-win for ranchers and the flourishing Tule Elk herd in the Point Reyes National Seashore. We can and will protect both of these important features of the Seashore. And we are both committed to securing long-term leases to provide better certainty to the agricultural families in the park’s historic ranches and dairies. http://www.marinij.com/editorial/ci_24665900/editorial-solution-needed-clash-over-pt-reyes-tule
THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE has a reputation for, at times, a slow bureaucratic and methodical approach to addressing issues.

With deep public sector budget cuts the deficit is falling faster than any time since the 1950’s—a factor which most economists agree hurts economic growth. The fact that our economy has continued to show net growth through this period of austerity is a hopeful sign that we are poised for a robust economic recovery… if Congress will just stop the manufactured crises, pass a budget that ends the sequester, and let the economy rebound. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/06/business/economy/us-economy-grew-3-6-in-third-quarter-revision-shows.html?hp&_r=0
The revised annual rate was significantly better than the 3.1 percent pace economists had been expecting, and it marked the best quarter for growth since the first quarter of 2012.
