    I don't want to be on Noel's side but this is nothing. The group doing this just wants headlines. Noel's property is a small chunk in Johnson's Canyon and wouldn't matter if it was in the Monument or not. There is plenty to go after this guy on without making stuff up. Be patient he will step on it some time this legislative season.

    Sorry I'll apologize when I can see proof that he disclosed this, can't take Mike at his word, he's been known to tell creative truths, when it comes to monuments and BLM.

    That and many Utah politicians tend to forget, certain details, or what shell companies they own, until it's provided to the public.

    Also looks like the proposed Powell Pipeline would cross his little corner of Kane County.

    Well, all the progressive folks commenting here still hate Mr. Noel. The fact that they are totally wrong, doesn't bother them in the least.

    While I am no fan of Mr. Noel, he certainly has com[plied with the law and with the basics of good stewardship in his office, Re this issue.

    A few apologies are in order from the so called environmentalists for Rep. Noel!

    When was the land purchased? and from whom? These questions should clear Rep. Noel.

    Is there any honest elected officials in Utah? Because from the stories coming out of Utah, there don't seem to be any.

    Ah, the self-interests of a few local folks coming before the overall wishes of Utahns and the national interests. We've been saying that this was the case all along, and it seems we were right. Politicians serving themselves and not the people.

    Mike Noel sure seems to be in the middle of a lot of questionable issues.

    The Feds paid the State over $50M when the monument was created all those years ago.
    Is the State going to pay that back with interest?
    How can the State be opposed to the Monument when they were paid so much money for a tiny bit of State land that was included in the original Monument?
