Commentary by Heather Evans

The county sprayed today. We had asked our magistrate last year to put us on the no spray list. Apparently he forgot to do so. We are organic.

My property has not seen poison in 15 years, my mom's even longer.

I have pets, children, a wild bee hive and planting a/wildflower near the road. I don't care what the labeling asserts, the manufacturer is out for money and I don't think any chemical is safe.

Whether now or years down the road. There is a grotto down my neighbors hill so now the ground water is contaminated. We are ordering a no spray sign but unfortunately we are too late for the health of our land. Attached are pictures of our roadsides. I don't know, do you think a car can get through this mess? We keep our properties neat and contained. Perhaps this will warn others that care of what is coming their way. --Heather Evans
