Labl drew some support from Michael Jackson, one of the cofounders of the Quincy Library Group. Jackson ex- plained that he had worked for years to get the Bucks Lake Wilderness area estab- lished, but, when he discov- ered that Silver Lake had been included as in the desig- nation as well, he made a trip to Washington D.C., to get it removed. Jackson said that he would like to see more wilderness areas added in the future. And, that hopefully, it could be reached the same way as the QLG worked, "through middle ground." On this day, there was no middle ground and the super- visors voted unanimously to reject the concept of any ad- ditional wilderness being designated in Plumas Coun- ty. "~ ~ ~ , ~-~ ............
