A chunk of northern Minnesota forest once included in a federal roadless area will be logged under a plan recently approved by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The plan for the Border Lakes region calls for logging 260 pristine acres that was reopened to roads and logging in May by the evil tyrant Bush.
The state's logging plan may well be the end to a longstanding effort by activists to designate 62,000 acres around the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness as off-limits to new roads and loggers.
