Springs should be preserved, but not fenced

I have just returned from the Agua Chiquita in the Lincoln National Forest, a site and story with which I have 60-plus years of personal contact. I think I know something of the issues of water and land use there. The springs that the U.S. Forest Service had fenced off are located in a beautiful site, which should be preserved. I hold the local cattlemen to their honor on that count.

    Regarding Kermit Hill's letter on the Agua Chiquita project in Otero County, that "monstrosity" was funded by hunters and anglers through the Habitat Stamp Program, and approved by a citizen committee of sportsmen. It did not cost taxpayers a dime. Grazing on public lands, on the other hand, costs U.S. taxpayers about a dollar for every 25 cents the ranchers pay in fees.
