Off-road vehicles kick up controversy Regarding "Crush of off- road vehicles plies West's public lands" (Oct. 5): The Forest Service has paid close attention to off-road vehicle (ORV) recreation for many years. Twenty-five years ago, ORVs could be used virtually anywhere on Forest Service property.

This program has been supported for years by such independent and well-respected nonmotorized groups as the American Hiking Society, the Rails to Trails Conservancy, and the American Horse Council. Among its other provisions, the law will not allow the conversion of a hiking or equestrian trail to motorized use.

Proposed rules are published every day in the Federal Register. Eric Lundquist, Pickerington, Ohio Senior legislative affairs specialist
