Response to Fatali Pleads Guilty to 7 Misdemeanors


An Interior Department appeals officer has halted oil exploration just outside of Arches National Park in Utah, saying that letting the project proceed could cause irreparable harm.
The exploration is taking place a few miles from the northern border of the park, a 76,518-acre preserve known for its 2,000 arches carved by wind and water from sheer red sandstone cliffs. The Interior Department's director of appeals, Robert S. More, issued the stay Saturday night.
