Re: Formal Request Consulting Party

Dear Mr. Lisowsky,

I was born in between the rivers. My Dad, who was also born there, was bought out three times before moving out of between the rivers. My Mom was raised in between the rivers.

I am of the Roach-Sholar-McQuithey and Baker-Travis family lines in between the rivers. Many of the cemeteries in LBL have my kinfolk buried in them. The land contains my bloodline. My heart is firmly attached to the land, and will be until I die.

For this reason, that my heart loves the land now known as Land Between the Lakes, and because the Forest Service petitions public involvement, I’m writing this request to become a member of a Consulting Party in matters concerning the LBL.

Also, since my family heritage lies within the LBL, I particularly wish to be a consulting party to the Heritage Program that Jamie Bennett is presently in charge of implementing in the LBL.

Please advise should there be any additional information that you require to grant this petition.
