"Johnson Valley decision delayed as Marines review comments" (Palm Springs Desert Sun, 9/21/12)
"A decision expected this month on plans to expand the Twentynine Palms Marine base into the Johnson Valley off-roading area has been pushed back to November or December because the Marine Corps is still reviewing comments. About 1,000 comments from individuals and groups about the proposed expansion of the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center poured in by the Aug. 27 deadline, according to the corps. A Navy environmental impact report found the expansion could whittle down the off-roading area by more than half and cut off access to some of its most popular areas for two months a year." ... ushed-back
