The Spectrum Letter to the Editor: ‘A great idea!’

Gold Butte National Monument, what a great idea! Let’s protect the land and embrace our natural environment.

I live and do business in Mesquite and now we have a named monument in our backyard, finally some good news in the landslide of dreary news. If you don’t already know, Nevadans have been working to protect the nationally significant cultural, historic, and natural treasures in Gold Butte for decades and now their hard work has paid off.

I am thrilled that President Obama heard the call of thousands of Americans and the 71 percent of Nevadans who wanted to see Gold Butte protected as a national monument.
