Our forests have been famous worldwide. With Gorge forest fires, though, walking outside while black, ash “snow” fell, was eerie, and thought provoking. As a retired nurse, I considered my dust respirator mask essential. Kids who started these fires caused outrage.
I am more outraged at adults who say explosive oil trains there are safe. Not true. Oil transporters causing Mosier’s explosive train derailment could easily have done this same thing, or worse. Trains need clean cargo, instead.
Please, vote Don Orange for port commissioner. The other guy takes Tesoro oil money. Orange does not.
