Ashland's Mayor John Stromberg's Community Conversation on a Draft
Ordinance that proposes STREAMSIDE/WETLAND HERBICIDE USE on ALL PRIVATE & CITY PROPERTY:
This is an extremely important meeting to attend, not only for Ashland residents, but also for anyone that lives downstream/downwind that does not want any amont of pesticides leeching into their water- tables and contaminating the soil, air, fish, birds, riparians, pollen, food , humans etc...
I will truly appreciate it if you could please pass this along so that we all have an input, especially on how we want to Steward the Health of our local Earth Communtiy in a Non-toxic, Sustainable and Peaceful way. This ordinance must not pass...It is chemical & bilogical 'warfare', poisoning of "our piece" of the Planet.
Please feel free to contact me.
Many Blessings and Namaste,
Melanie Dupuis, Holistic Health Counselor, A.A.D.P., Master Gardener

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ASHLAND COMMUNITY CONSERVATON ON STREAMSIDE HERBICIDE USE
Wednesday, Feb. 25th at 7pm at the Ashland Library , Mayor John Stromberg is hosting an important Community Conversation. The event will give the mayor and Ashland residents a chance to explore information and perspectives on a draft ordinance that proposes the use of herbicides along streams and in wetlands in Ashland to remove invasive plants like blackberries. This ordinance would apply to all private properties, City Parks, and City properties. This draft ordinance is scheduled to come before the Ashland City Council on Tuesday March 3rd. The draft ordinance for Water Resource Protection Zones and related documents can be viewed on the City website: http://www.ashland.or.us/Page.asp?NavID=10307 The draft ordinance language on limited uses of herbicides on invasive plants is on pp. 21-26.

Hi Doc. Who wrote 'The Green Collar Economy', and 'Let Them Call Me Rebel'? Any critique you want to offer?
I am close to finishing 'Static' by Amy Goodman and David Goodman (her bro). Appalling, revealing, direct, cutting, further shattering illusions of power and media collusion, and upholding the true heroes who expose and defy such entrenched alliances.
Use this network to promote yourself in the local community by inviting your friends under "Members" to see your "MyPage" profile and add their own. This is how the network grows strong and we are kept informed locally.
What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious.
The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19. If they can’t or won’t send us a viable sample, I say there is no Covid 19, it is fictitious. The four research papers that do describe the genomic extracts of the Covid 19 virus never were successful in isolating and purifying the samples. All the four papers written on Covid 19 only describe small bits of RNA which were only 37 to 40 base pairs long which is NOT A VIRUS. A viral genome is typically 30,000 to 40,000 base pairs.
Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person.
The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.
The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”
There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction.
It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test.
Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
