Voter approval of Proposition 70, the California Wildlife, Coastal and Parkland Conservation Act of 1988, on June 7 will end a serious shortage of public park, coastal, wildlife and recreation funds. The shortfall is due to legislative inaction during the past several years. The initiative is supported by scores of conservation and urban and regional parks organizations throughout the state. Northern redwoods, precious wetlands, coastal beaches and streams are slated for acquisition from landowners who are willing to sell.

Everybody's buying mountain bikes. More than 70% of the bikes sold these days are of the fat-tired variety, and while most of these never stray from the asphalt, lots of folks are heading for the hills. Across the country, that has spelled conflict with other, more established trail users, namely hikers and horseback riders. And often, the bicyclists lose out.
