Steve and Bob speak with San Juan County Commissioner, Phil Lyman and his decision to ride down Recapture Canyon in protest of the BLM and their closure of certain trails.

From Comm. Lyman's Facebook:

OATH OF OFFICE:

There seems to be some confusion about the oath of office. Here is the oath that I took:

I,_______________, having been appointed to the office of ____________ do solemnly swear that I will support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Utah, and that I will discharge the duties of my office with fidelity. 

I have heard too many people say that I took an oath to "OBEY THE LAW." I didn't. While I feel a moral obligation to obey the law, I feel a stronger moral obligation to defend the culture and customs of the people of San Juan County. The BLM is required "by Law." (FLPMA to be exact), to conform their actions to the Master Plan of the County. They have not done so. Closing Recapture was a Supervisor's Discretionary Closure. After 8 years of delay, this closure should be protested by anyone who believes that a County has at least some jurisdiction within the geographic boundaries that define the County. 

My Oath of Office is the reason I am willing to ride down Recapture.
