Re: “Now, About Elk River

Jerry, I think it's past time to blockade with our bodies. HRC not only won't listen to the residents but they are, in addition, the ones getting support from public agencies instead of the Elk River residents

Re: “Motivating the Truce?

Ellen Taylor does it again. What a great letter and how true it all is. On Monday eve HRC is supposed to be re-certified as a sustainable, good logging company. Meanwhile the people who live near the Elk River are facing yet more logging on the slopes over the already silted in Elk River and they will suffer, yet again, this winter with flooding that will destroy homes and lock them in or out of their homes and HRC will not cease their destructive actions. Aside from the silt that river is so poisoned by logging run off that it's unusable.

Re: “Now, About Elk River

I was seriously considering buying a house on Elk River Road, but I asked the people at work what they thought. They said: don't buy that one because of the flooding. So I bought a different House.

Re: “Now, About Elk River

Thanks for explaining what's going on. I keep on seeing full logging trucks getting onto 101 at Herrick Ave. The Headwaters Forest is back there and there is no logging inside the reserve. The Headwaters Forest is a great place to go if you have wheels. Bicycles, strollers, skateboards, wheelchairs... NO Cars. There is a long smooth paved path and everytime I go, I see people having a good time.
