How poor can the USFS really be?

RE: Green Mountain users meet Forest Service head-on (SDN, Sept. 12)In response to the Green Mountain controversy, I wanted to attend the meeting but was unable to. On July 2, I went to the Forest Service office in Silverthorne and bought an annual pass, paying with a check. As of Sept. 15, 75 days later, that check still has not been cashed. This seems strange for an agency that is crying poor. Who’s in charge here? Who is going to enforce all the new rules at the lake when they cannot even handle what goes on up there now? What are all these new fees going for? Will they provide water? Electrical hook-ups? Not once this season has anyone even asked to see my season pass. All I can say is, if all these fees go through, pay for them with a check.
