The use of the term "monument" in Southern Oregon seldom refers to a stone obelisk.

It often means the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, recently expanded by President Obama before his term ended. 

A month after the expansion, Western Oregon counties filed suit, and so did the timber industry.  Susan Jane Brown of the Western Environmental Law Center and Dave Willis from the Soda Mountain Wilderness Council visit with details of defending against the lawsuits.
