Letters to the Editor
Investigative Judgment; AT Reporting; etc.
I thank you, John McLarty, for the brilliant article on the Investigative Judgment, which portrays a beautiful picture of a loving God who reaches out to people of all times, places and situations with the best He has to offer! After hearing, reading and preaching on the judgment for over 50 years, I am happy to see this article which brings beauty and clarity to this subject which so many of us have struggled to understand within the framework of the Gospel. Might this clarification fall within the category of things we "need to learn" and also involve some things we "need to unlearn"? Dick Serns
Loomis, California
I am overwhelmed with appreciation at the issue of Adventist Today that arrived today in my home. I have already read it from cover to cover. My mind is etched with a sense of positive purpose that this publication shares. I read the letters in "First Class" and see that others share my feeling. Not everyone! I am refreshed over and over when I see truth shared in an open environment. I spent too long in denominational employment where that was not the case [26 years as a pastor]. I am not vindictive at heart. I love my church. I have always wished for a denominational setting where I could share from an open heart, without fear of losing my job or reputation. That is what I am seeing in Adventist Today. Don’t let that ever slip away!

Curt Arens Rueben is a typical teenager. In 1971, Voorhies was exploring the tributaries of the Verdigre Creek valley northwest of Royal in search of fossils when he discovered a baby rhino skeleton protruding from a creek bank. The rhino was among thousands of animals buried after a gigantic volcanic eruption in present-day Idaho covered parts of Nebraska with up to 10 feet of ash. Now, Voorhies, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, spends his summers at Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park, which was developed in 1991 around his skeletal discovery 30 years ago.

Coast to coast, from sunny California to Connecticut, the U.S. offers dinosaur lovers and their families a chance to get up close and personal with natural history. Only what we believe to be the best is featured on this list. Of course if you've visited a fantastic dinosaur site, let me know and I will add it. Have a great time… tracking Dinosaurs.

I loved this place when I was eight. Why? This is the place to buy rocks and fossils. The area itself is not very exciting unless you know what to look for along the way. We purchased an audiotape at the Petrified Forest Museum. It is called Dawn of the Dinosaurs. It provides just enough information so that the ride is not boring. It is not a story tape so it is best suited for those older than six. The visitor's center features the skeletons of many dinosaurs, some older even than T. Rex. The skeletons include Triassic phytosaurs, similar to modern day crocodiles. A Junior Ranger certification program is also offered. This area is desolate and wild looking. It is an easy day trip from the Flagstaff area. The gift shops adjacent to the gas station have copious specimen choices. Holbrook. 1 (928) 524-6228

    1. The principal importance of fossils is for scientific, scholarly, and educational use of both professionals and amateurs.
    2. The numbers of specimens of fossils vary widely but certain fossils in all taxonomic groups are rare and that conserving and making available for study significant fossils and their contextual data is critical.
    3. To leave fossils uncollected assures their degradation and ultimate loss to the scientific and educational world through natural processes of weathering and erosion."

    Localities of the Eocene:
    The Florissant Formation
    This pleasant green valley, set in the eastern Rocky Mountains of Colorado not far from Pikes Peak, is the site of an important fossil deposit that provides a look at life in the late Eocene . Thirty-six million years ago, volcanic mudflows blocked a stream flowing through this valley, producing a lake about twelve miles long. Vegetation flourished on the shores of this lake, and the valley came to teem with life, until about two million years later. At that time, about thirty-four million years ago, a new series of periodic volcanic eruptions began about fifteen miles away, in what is now South Park, Colorado. These eruptions spewed out fine-grained volcanic ash (much like the ash spewed out by Mount St. Helens in 1980), which choked and eventually filled in the ancient lake and valley. The fine ash rapidly buried countless plants, insects, snails, and other animals, preserving them beautifully in the process. Today, these ancient ashfalls are named the Florissant Formation, after the Florissant Valley and the nearby town of Florissant. Tens of thousands of fossils from the Florissant Formation have been collected and studied since the late 19th century; they can be found today in museums around the world. Most of the Florissant beds are protected by the Federal Government, making up Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. Some private quarries do exist in the area where the general public can collect fossils.

    UNL Science News - 10/17/00
    WHEN: Wednesday, Oct. 25, 4:30 p.m.
    Lincoln (Neb.) - Oct. 17, 2000 - Michael Voorhies, curator of vertebrate paleontology in the University of Nebraska State Museum, will discuss "Gaps in the Fossil Record: Darwinism's Fatal Flaw," 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 25, 117 Bessey Hall. Voorhies' public lecture is the third of four in a series, "Teaching Evolution: Aspects of the Controversy," that examines the stormy relationship between evolution and creationism. Voorhies will review current scientific views of how the fossil record formed and examine creationist claims that the record requires a supernatural explanation. He will explain why he does not "believe in" evolution. Voorhies, a native of Orchard, teaches in the department of geosciences and has done paleontological field work in the richly fossiliferous deposits of the Great Plains for more than four decades. His research focuses on the origin of fossil beds, especially such spectacular catastrophic assemblages as the Ashfall Fossil Beds in northeastern Nebraska, a Nebraska state park since 1991. His work has been featured in Nebraskaland magazine, technical publications including "Science" and the "Journal of Paleontology," and TV documentaries on NOVA and the Discovery Channel.

Ken will be in charge of all non-paleo resources, including the Cant Ranch National Historic District. Ken comes to us from Chelan, Washington, where he worked for the Natural Resource and Conservation Service (NRCS). Ken is not a newcomer to John Day country, however, having spent two years here previously working on salmon recovery and riparian management for NRCS. When school finishes in Chelan in June, Ken's wife Julie and their six children will join him if he can just find a place that will hold them all!
    CLARNO UNIT TO BE FENCED... The boundary of the Clarno Unit was surveyed and monumented this winter. This summer, it will be completely fenced by fencing contractor, Dave (Mad Dog) Asher. This fencing will exclude cattle from fossil exposures and other sensitive sites. It will also delineate the boundaries of the monument, which will help enforce the monument's regulations, particularly during hunting seasons. This project was funded through the Recreation Fee Demonstration Program. This program uses park entrance and use fees to fund visitor use and resource management projects in National Park Service Areas nation-wide.

      Fossil Skeletons and Mother Lodes
      For those who have collected old bones and teeth from Florida, you can attest to the fact that although fossil mammals are indeed plentiful, they are usually found disarticulated; the skeletons are almost never found in tact. Localities throughout the world that do preserve complete skeletons are indeed rare and these have been called Lagerstätten , a German term roughly meaning "mother lode." Steve Gould once noted that ".Lagerstätten are rare, but their contributions to our knowledge of life's history is disproportionate to their frequency." Why is this so? For invertebrates, soft-bodied organisms may be preserved thus giving insight into various fossil groups not normally fossilized (see Book Review below). For vertebrates the same can be true. At the fabulous Eocene Messel in Germany, carbonized impressions of stomach contents of palaeotheres (close relatives of horses, see chart on page 6) indicate that they were eating grapes, and that bats were eating butterflies. For other Lagerstätten containing vertebrates, the Scientific value is in the completeness of the skeleton. These entire specimens allow paleontologists to decipher the anatomy and biology of these extinct organisms. Artist Marc Marcuson's reconstruction of Pliohippus
