Bypass road to Skywalk should open today
Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa
Miner Staff Reporter

KINGMAN - A dirt road bypassing a roadblock on Diamond Bar Road should be open by this afternoon, re-establishing a route to the Grand Canyon Skywalk that has been blocked because of a dispute between the Hualapai tribe and a neighboring businessman.

Mohave County District 4 Supervisor Joy Brotherton said she joined Hualapai Council Chairwoman Sherry Counts at the U.S. Bureau of Land Management Office in Kingman this morning in order to help fill out paperwork for a temporary permit for the bypass.

Hualapai Spokesman Dave Cieslak confirmed that the tribe has permits for the bypass and construction crews have already started work.

Local businessman Nigel Turner closed a one-mile section of Diamond Bar Road that crosses his property last week. Turner claims that the tribe is not following the stipulations set down in a 2007 agreement allowing access to his land that were designed to protect his guests and the local environment.

I own undeveloped property about 20 miles from this glass walk way, and in fact have thousands of acres of BLM land near my land and the poster who claimed all their knowledge on how long it would take merely was exposing their view and support for the rancher versus the tribe! I call his or her claims of it needing impact studies just wishful thinking! Dolan Springs thrives off them daily runs of Buses from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Um, racist much? When did color and skin tone come into the equation? Most people who feel the rancher has gotten a raw deal, feel that way because an agreement wasn't honored. It's keeping your word that's at issue, not the color of anyone's skin.

So.. a private entity (the Hualapai Tribe...not the management corporation ...because they are two separate things...right? lol) somehow got permission to bulldoze a road on public land in just a few days?

Wow....wonder if I could get permission for that as quickly? Ya think?

I wonder if the Tribe is in Ms Brothertons district? Actually, no I don't. Why is she doing this...ohhh...I see...thats where the money is.

This whole situation stinks to high heaven.

So much the need for Environmental Impact Studies. Let construction on the Keystone Pipeline begin ... all we need is some rogue Mohave County Supervisor to be there to help the with the paperwork!

Guess this proves two things the rancher's road is a moot issue and second the person who said this could not be done quickly recently in their post knew not what they were speaking on! I am white as rice and I vote for the tribe to be winners in this issue, the actions by this rancher and his skin tone issue fan club I wish nothing but bad karma on them! Indians traditionally have been mistreated for two centuries in this nation and its about time those who still wish them ill get some bad karma and they get some good karma!
