CDA Press: English Point Belongs To Public

English Point National Recreation Trail system near Hayden Lake is unlike any other 360-acre parcel in our gorgeous region. It’s irreplaceable. It’s clean, pristine and a joy to experience in any season. It is also targeted for potential sale to the highest bidder. English Point is on a list of properties the federal government would sell to temporarily fund a program that gives counties income from property-tax-exempt federal lands. We think Congress needs to find other ways to fund rural schools and roads than selling off prized public property.

Here’s the rest of the dead-on editorial by the Coeur d’Alene Press: Let them know it’s not for sale: You own English Point. Please, don’t sell it.
