U.S. Forest Service upbeat about Rainbows (You've got to be kidding)

Cass Cairns, an information officer with the Forest Service, said dealing with the Rainbow Family is unique because it rejects the traditional hierarchal leadership structure, but that the group is interested in managing its annual event in responsible and healthy ways.

Forest Service upbeat about ranch family returning
Though the Julie Carter Ranch Family still owes the Forest Service $7500 for past grazing fees, a Forest Service spokesperson said her experience with the family has been positive.  For this year's grazing season no permit was issued because no one in the family would sign such a document.  The Forest Service spokesperson said she wasn't sure how many cattle would graze this year.
