10 The Sun, Wednesday, May 10, 1989 ,ll It's time to stand up and be counted. It's time to let our lawmakers--in our cities, our counties, our state and our federal government--know just how important the Northwest's timber industry really is. Sure, everyone knows that a lot of people work in our mills and in our woods. But do they know that more than $1 billion goes to the federal government each year from timber harvesting and that millions go to our local counties and school districts? Sure, everyone knows the recent rulings about the spotted owl have stopped lots of timber harvests. But do they know that the action could mean the loss of thousands of jobs in Oregon and millions of dollars in state income taxes? Not to mention the increased cost in weltare- jobless payments if more mills close. Sure, everyone knows that a lot of forest is already set aside for wildemees. But do they know an area the size of some states back East is being left untouched by logging? Do they know that for every tree that's cut another two or three are planted in the reforestation programs? Sure, everyone knows it has taken thousands of years for those majestic Redwoods to grow. But does everyone know that we're not talking here about those kind of trees that take eons to grow. We're talking about second-growth timber mostly--timber that has been growing for about 100 or 150 years--and will grow back again. Sure, we all like to protect wildlife like the spotted owl. But do we all know that there are still a lot of questions about the validity of some studies that say the owl is doomed or needs old- growth stands to nest? And isn't 2,000 acres enought for each bird? Sure, we all like forests for hiking and other recreation. But do we all know the latest U.S. Forest Service 1 O-year plans could mean a cutback of more than 20 percent in logging? And do we know that means a loss of more jobs? Sure, we all know that logs on state lands are being exported overseas. Do we know that unless a state ballot measure passes in June this practice will probably continue? These are just some of the pressing issues our timber industry is dealing with today. the local industry to know we are supporting them in their struggle to continue to keel Valley economically sound. What can you do? Write to your elected officials and tell them how you feel. Let them know YOUR position on the issue. And tie a yellow ribbon on your car to show your support for our timber industry.
