A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
RECORDS MANAGEMENT GUIDANCE FOR NEW FEDERAL EXECUTIVES AND POLITICAL APPOINTEES
Now that the political transition is nearing completion, many new Federal executives and political appointees have come on-board and will continue to arrive over the next several months. Records management is one of the topics that is being addressed in briefings for new political appointees. Records created by top-level executive branch officials have continuing value for the Government and for future historical and research uses. To ensure that Federal agency officials are reminded that official records must remain in the custody of the agency, NARA issued Bulletin No. 2003-03, dated May 16, 2000. To help Federal officials gain a clear understanding of the applicable laws governing official records and personal collections of papers, NARA published the pamphlet "Documenting Your Public Service." Both of these publications are available on NARAs website:http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/.
