"The big stumps, the spindly trees left behind, you can’t justify it," said Rich Haydon, a local resident opposed to the cut. "I am not going to let this go. It doesn’t make sense in terms of fire fighting, or what we would do in timber sales in this day and age."

Pangborn Memorial Airport techs Ken Lamb, at right, and Rafael Martinez, in background, remove a large X-sign at the north end of the runway on Monday morning a few minutes before 7 a.m. to reopen the airport. The airport had been closed to all fixed-wing aircraft for the last week while crews put the lane markings, high-intensity lighting and seal coated the newly extended runway. The first airplane to land, flown by Trista Becker of East Wenatchee, touched down at 7:01 a.m., she was accompanied by her husband Kurt and they were returning from a trip to Idaho.
