Consider attending a film showing of “Behind the Emerald Curtain,” an award-winning documentary on the practice of clearcutting and pesticide spraying in our industrial forests. It’s an educational and fundraising event for Citizens for a Healthy County. The film will be shown Friday, July 22 at 7 pm at The Congregational Church of Lincoln City, 1760 NW 25th St. Lincoln City.
The committee says the film exposes the harmful practice of pesticide spraying over clearcut industrial forests on our communities and our environment. They say the practice has caused serious illness and even deaths. The committee contends that aerial spraying of pesticides was deemed so harmful that it was banned on federal forests over 30 years ago, yet those same pesticides are still legal and sprayed today over private and state forests. They further contend that these chemicals contaminate the streams we fish from, the watersheds we drink from and the soil we grow our food in. In addition they claim that it poisons our wildlife and increases cancer and a series of other
degenerative diseases in our communities.
Citizens for a Healthy County has filed a citizens’ initiative to appear on the May 2017 ballot (corrected) to ban aerial spraying in Lincoln County. The committee invites all interested citizens to come and learn and to discuss this issue facing our county.
