Here’s a Democracy in Action request for you…
A group of people called Mid-Coast Water Planning Partnership are seeking to hear from residents of our coastal neighborhoods about our values, opinions, ideas, concerns, and priorities for water. Meetings are open to interested people.
Your ideas and values may be different from what public works or City Council’s views are. Now’s the time to let them know if you value clean drinking water for public use, wildlife, and aquatics. Millions of gallons per day go from the Siletz River to the Koch-owned GP mill that uses the water, leaving it unusable with toxic chemicals, and put into the ocean offshore Nye Beach.
This SURVEY* should take you a few minutes to fill out. Please pass it on to your family and friends.
SURVEYS ARE DUE BEFORE NOVEMBER 30!

Campaigners say more than 15m people who care about the environment did not vote in the 2014 midterms – can they create a ‘green wave’ this November?

THE RELUCTANT RADICAL
Sunday, July 22 and Monday, July 23 at 7pm
Newport Performing Arts Center
If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Is it, in fact, necessary? THE RELUCTANT RADICAL follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change.
Oregon filmmaker Lindsey Grayzel and film subject Ken Ward will be in attendance on both nights for post-film Q&A. Local environmental and faith groups will share information and opportunities in the lobby.
These film screenings are presented at the Newport PAC as part of the Bijou Theater Newport Film Series, with support from Central Coast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Central Oregon Coast NOW Foundation, and anonymous donors.
This is not good. They are trying to avoid the Tsunami & other location issues. They should not get an Exemption.
