ATV fight in Vilas County WI
While traveling in NE WI last week I was listening to the ever present NPR/WPR in the truck. WPR is big on regional talk shows so I was intrigued when a show about the proposed ATV trail in Vilas County came on. The interesting part about it was that a few years ago the trail was voted down 2-1. It was a decisive NO to ATV's and the majority of Vilas County residents said they would rather see the ATV's take a hike (literally) than ride. Well somehow these guys are back at it. On the show they had the head spokesperson of both sides and it was great to hear how many people called in to rip this dude (ATV guy) a new one. It was really cathartic for me. In any case if it sounds like it did on the radio I dont think the ATV lobby has made any ground in Vilas County. Or at least I hope not.
Here is a letter on line FOR the trail
