PAYSON ROUNDUP - WED., AUG 6 - By Pete Aleshire
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a revised proposal to save the endangered Mexican gray wolf by including all of Rim Country in a sprawling, two-state area where it could introduce new wolf packs.
The proposal would essentially allow the wolves to wander outside that core reintroduction area into all of Arizona and New Mexico south of Interstate 40, in an attempt to connect the recovering wolf population in the United States with reintroduced populations in Mexico.
The proposal did respond to pleas to loosen restrictions on killing or harassing wolves to protect pets and cattle.
However, the USFWS proposal largely rejected a plan by Arizona Game and Fish and a coalition of other concerned parties to limit the reintroduction efforts to a much smaller area. That plan would have put the western limit to the reintroduction area along the boundary of the Hellsgate Wilderness area east of Payson. The USFWS proposal would instead include the Payson and Young Ranger Districts of the Tonto National Forest in the core area for introductions, which would stretch through the White Mountains to the current reintroduction area and on into New Mexico.

Gila County Receives Grants To Improve Infrastructure
Gila County was awarded $367,444 to improve roads and trails thanks to the Eastern Arizona Resource Advisory Committee (RAC). The County will receive $342,644 to recondition and repair eight miles of Forest Road 512 with Gila County road crews. The road leads from on top of the Rim down to Young. The county worked on the first five miles of the road last year. “We spent quite a bit of money improving the road last year,” said Steve Saunders, with the Gila County engineering department.
The Tonto National Forest will receive a total of $24,000 to provide trail maintenance on the East Mountain Trail, Troll Road Trail Loop, and repair flood damage to the Cottonwood Canyon portion of the Arizona National Scenic Trail.
The committee provides communication and support for governmental agencies in rural eastern Arizona, under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act.
At its meeting on July 22 and 23, at the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests Supervisor’s Office, the RAC approved a total of $902,423 worth of projects in five counties, Apache, Gila, Graham, Greenlee and Navajo counties. “The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest wishes to thank the many members of our communities who volunteered their time and expertise to making this year’s RAC a positive and successful event,” wrote the Forest Service in a press release.
If interested in becoming a member of the committee, please contact Marta Call, RAC coordinator at (928) 333-6336.
