[ft-l] Green Swamp West

Bill isn't on the list but his email is bwbes@juno.com.  I forwarded your
email on to him.  The trail maintainers on this section have done a creat
job in GSW.  Bill's maintaining groups is composed of individuals from both
Suncoast and Heartland chapters.

The "timber harvest" was done about a week before the FTA Annual Conference.
Neither Bill nor the SWFWMD recreation specialist was informed of the
decision to do the cutting.  Bill was absolutely sick about it.  He took the
recreation specialist out there and showed it to him and he didn't like it
either.  Hopefully we will have advanced notice next time SWFWMD makes
decisions like this.
