Forest Service to drop most fees in Catalinas

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Most fees at the Catalina Mountains will be gone beginning July 4.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the U.S. Forest Service announced this week that most of the original fee area will no longer be subject to recreation fees. The move comes after a federal court settlement in January between the Forest Service and Tucson residents, who filed suit against the agency over collection of fees.

The original fee system in the Catalinas, in effect since 1996, allowed the Forest Service to charge fees to people who parked and hiked on trails or used recreation-site facilities.

U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Heidi Schewel says fees - $5 daily or $20 for an annual pass - will be charged for only 11 of 28 developed recreation sites previously subject to fees.

    Subway bedbug infestations on the rise

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
