  • The proponents of measure 15-119 have obviously not considered their goals in light of the realities of a world in which feeding a growing population is soon to become a monumental crisis. Absent irrefutable evidence of harm to humans and animals, a proposal that would decrease or eliminate production is both selfish and short-sighted.

  • The proponents of measure 15-119 have obviously not considered their goals in light of the realities of a world in which feeding a growing population is soon to become a monumental crisis. Absent irrefutable evidence of harm to humans and animals, a proposal that would decrease or eliminate production is both selfish and short-sighted.
    To suggest unnecessary restrictions that would harm not only farmers and ranchers but the entire fragile economy of Jackson County and invite a further layer of onerous government intervention and intrusion is truly unconscionable.
    If, indeed, their recommendations are not malicious in intent, remember that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." At best, this proposal is simply based on naiveté and needs to be soundly defeated.
    We have been "family farmers" for not only a few years, but generations. Please join us in voting no on Measure 15-119. — Marilyn Frink, Frink Ranch of White City, and Melissa Damon of Damon Livestock in Eagle Point
