RB’s 2004 Harley Road King
Here is an opportunity to win a 2004 Harley Davidson Road King for a $10 raffle ticket.  RB is a good friend of mine that I’ve played volleyball with for years and he has been hospitalized since July with a strange malady that the doctors have not really been able to diagnose.  RB went from totally normal to completely paralized in about a 24 hour period and has been in the hospital for many months.  Of course the bills are enormous and his friends have rallied around him to help in various ways. 
One of the ways of raising money is raffling off RB’s 2004 Harley Davidson Road King and you can help by purchasing a ticket (or several).  You can order by mail, just follow the instructions below, but hurry because the deadline is Nov. 26th to get in on the drawing Nov. 28th!  Thank-you.
Last call for tickets by mail.
R. B. McCallister, friend and co-worker at Harding Real Estate has been hospitalized since the end of July.  His Harley Davidson Road King is being raffled off.  It is a 2004 with only 3700 miles on it.  Tickets are $10 each with a max of 3,000 tickets being sold.  The winner will be drawn November 28, 2010.  Tickets are available at my office on Rt. 47 or you can order by mail.  Orders must be received by November 26, 2010.  Mail check payable to the RB Benefit Trust to Harding Real Estate 1710 S. Eastwood Dr. Woodstock, IL 60098.

According to DOI (Department Of Interior) documents uncovered by the AMA (American Motorcylclist Association) the Obama administration is considering closing 13 million acres of public land for use by the public.   The biggest issue is that this is being looked at without any public debate or input from the people and communities affected.   By using National Monument designation the President doesn’t need to go through the normal process of public input before moving forward. 

Several congressmen from both parties in the affected area (in 11 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming) have spoken out against such an anti-access stance taken by the current administration.  For a more detailed report you can go to the Motorsports Newswire blog:

This is an important issue that will impact all types of recreation on public lands in these 11 states.  But don’t think it will stop there because your state will be next if you don’t get involved and voice your concerns with being locked out of our public lands.  Every year the extreme environmental groups ram-rod some new land grab through and bit-by-bit (or several million acres at a time) the lands that have been set aside for public use and recreation are closed and designated as “wilderness” or “national monuments” locking out the people who have paid to have these lands!  It’s our tax dollars that are used to set aside public land for pubic use, and it is our same tax dollars that are used to exclude us from using that land, so we need to be active in the decision process that determines how that land is designated.  Don’t leave it to the vocal, well funded, and single-minded anti-access groups to decide how your future will look.
