Two More Oregon Counties Ban GMOs

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 05/21/2014
Jackson and josephine Counties in southern Oregon successfully passed ballot initiatives yesterday that will ban genetically modified crops.
The measures faced a well-funded opposition campaign that was led by agricultural giant Monsanto.
At the time of this broadcast, the Jackson County measure had passed by a large sixty-six percent majority.
Kboo’s paul Roland spoke this afternoon with Elise Higgley of Our Family Farms Coalition and a campaign director for the initiative.

Jackson county, home to Medford and Ashland, and Josephine County in southern Oregon, now join five other counties in Oregon Washington that have banned the cultivation of genetically modified crops.
The long-term safety of genetically modified crops remains unknown, since no long term studies have been performed, but critics say that we cannot afford to make a wrong decision that could impact our entire world food supply.
KBOO will continue coverage of this issue this Friday morning with Positively Revolting talk radio at eight on Saturday’s March on Monsanto in Portland, and at eleven with an hour-long special with host Paul Roland on the initiative victories and the on-going campaign against genetically modified crops and for GMO labelling in Oregon.

A federal judge threw out Oregon's same-sex marriage ban today, marking the 13th legal victory for gay marriage advocates since the U.S. Supreme Court last year overturned part of a federal ban.
State officials earlier refused to defend Oregon's voter-approved ban and said they wouldn't appeal.
The National Organization for Marriage sought to intervene, but both U.S. District Judge Michael McShane in Eugene and a federal appeals court rejected its attempts to argue in favor of the ban.
Many county clerks in the state began carrying out same-sex marriages almost immediately after Monday's ruling.
KBOO’s Rose Lyn Scott and Ken Jones were at the Multnomah County Building at 501 SE Hawthorne just before the decision was announced at noon. After the announcement, they talked to couples and officials at the Melody Ballroom, where officiants were available to conduct marriage ceremonies for those who had licenses.
 
Ken Jones and I talked with Amy Ruiz of Oregon United for Marriage, and then Mayor Charlie Hales.
 
We then talked with Portland City Commissioner Nick Fish, who also visited the Melody Ballroom to celebrate the decision.

KBOO News Story on Jazz Timber Sale Protest at Mt. Hood Forest Headquarters

Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014
In July, 2013, the forest watchdog group Bark filed a lawsuit challenging the Forest Service on the Jazz Timber Sale in the Clackamas Ranger District.
Bark’s lawsuit alleges that the forest Service did not comply with the National Environmental Policy Act and the national Forest Management Act in its decision to log this geologically unstable watershed.
Despite active litigation, the Forest Service proceeded with entering into contracts with the Canadian timber giant Interfor to log parts of the sale.
Just last month, Federal District Judge Marco Hernandez dismissed Bark’s factual and legal challenges, deferring to the Forest Service’s claims that the sale is legal and allowing logging to continue.
Early this afternoon around 75 Bark members and supporters rallied at the Mount Hood Forest headquarters in Sandy, where Bark director Alex brown and attorney Brenna Bell addressed the crowd.
They delivered a letter signed by several environmental groups to Forest Supervisor Lisa Northrup requesting the withdrawal of the timber sale, announced an  appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and pledged to take the fight to the woods this summer.The controversial Jazz timber sale in the Mount Hood National Forest continues to draw opposition from local activists.
KBOO’s Paul Roland was there and has this report.
