Forest Service and employee sparring over whistle blowing and possible retaliations

U.S. Forest Service officials have been considering whether to fire a whistle-blower employee who successfully challenged some of the agency’s road building and timber sale activity in the Tongass National Forest last year. The Forest Service has declined to comment publicly about its allegations against the biologist. Glen Ith believes his employers are retaliating against him for challenging their decisions.
