U.S. Senate Bill Would Fund Scrappage Programs Nationwide

Submitted by tsm1 on Wed, 12/19/2001 - 10:26

A bill (S. 1766), authored by Senators Daschle (D-SD) and Bingaman (D-NM),
has been introduced in the U.S. Senate containing a provision (Section 803)
that would federally fund state scrappage programs for vehicles over 15 years
old. Owners who turn in vehicles for crushing would receive a “minimal”
payment and a future credit toward purchasing a newer vehicle, all in a
misguided attempt to improve the overall fuel economy of the country’s
vehicle fleet. This bill represents the most formidable Federal legislative
threat to the vehicle hobby in many years.

Frontier member Jay Helfrich of Butte passed this along:

There will be a tough truck and mud bog at the Butte Civic center on the 12th of January. The word is that it will be the same people that do the Monster Truck show in the summer. I will probably race the Scout (mud and tough) and the chevy(mud) at the show.

Christmas Tree Run

Submitted by tsm1 on Mon, 12/17/2001 - 01:16

Frontier had our annual Christmas Tree Run on December 1st. We had a pretty good turnout. The weather wasn't as cold as it usually is, but it was cold enough to keep it fun.

Kathy, Loretta, and Jerry brought fabulous chili and stew for everyone to feast on..

I'm pretty sure everyone managed to fill their tags. Another successful harvest!

By Perry Backus, of The Montana Standard

WHITEHALL -- Doug Abelin is used to holding his cards close to the vest. But when it came time for Abelin to sit across the table with eight others hoping to find common ground on the future manage ment of the Bureau of Land Management's portion of the contentious Whitetail-Pipestone area, he and everyone else tried a different strategy.

From Don:

I am seeing more comments from folks who are starting to wake up to what the
Extreme Environmental community has been doing.

Hopefully more people will start paying attention to what has been going on!!!

From: Preston Stevens

Hey folks,

Look, I am steadily getting great news from within United.

The most recent stats show a significant rate for growth since the Annual
Convention. This despite the Spetember 11th disaster and unstable economy.

After doing a fine job as Ad Coordinator for United's Voice Joyce
Hillson has past the job to Jim Anderson of the Montana Four Wheel Drive
Association. What is so positive about this, is Jim has done this sort of
thing professionally for years. This is old hat to him. Essentially, he is
an expert in the field.
