Plan to spray pesticide
by Linda Hansen
June 18, 2004
This has to be one of the most ridiculous thing that I have ever
hear yet. To spray something that is going to kill off not only
our nature - such as the salmon berries, blueberry's huckleberries,
ect. that we have loved and eaten for all our lives - not only
us but the animals that live in these parts. What about the Devils
club that natives still use for healing purposes? Who knows where
the spray is going to land. What about the water? Alaska prides
in having the best fresh water ever, the fish, and other nature
animals around. And what if there are campers or boaters in the
area? Are they going to be sprayed and become sick? Who will
be willing to pay all the medical and funeral bills on that?
What about the surrounding areas? You know that people live around
this area. And what about the children?
Who ever had this idea must
have been out of their mind and I hope that Alaskans all over
the state, and some that aren't in the state that love Alaska
as much as we do, write letters too.
What is the purpose of spraying
these lands anyway? I thought that everyone wanted Alaska not
to be logged and to preserve our environment. Well of course,
again this in my own opinion.
