Forest Service moves forward on plans for timber sale near Wrangell

The Forest Service is moving ahead with plans to sell about a thousand acres of timber on an island near Wrangell. A new sale will be combined with a previous offering that attracted no bids.  Officials say pairing the sales will make logging more economic. But environmental groups say it requires too large of a federal subsidy.
