Mariela Castaneda, a spokesperson for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), explained the closure of a parcel of public land. The open desert area in Arizona had become a popular spot for illegal target shooting. Unfortunately, a stray bullet killed a pregnant woman in January 2018.
Castaneda said, “While the BLM understands the temporary closure will impact recreational opportunities in the … area, it is necessary for the safety of the recreating public and those conducting power line repair and fiber optic line burial.”

What we say can become ambiguous when it appears in writing.
