Amyrebba: This Asthmatic Empathizes w/Farmers

Amyrebba: It seems to me that we are all scream about the field burning, but no one if finding a solution that will both benifit the farmers and save us from respritory distress. I am not a seed farmer and I do have asthma, but I am not all for just banning the field burning with out first finding a solution to the problem. If you want the farmers to give up field burning find a solution to present to them that is both economical and efficiant. Until then you are not going to get anywhere on this argument. I know equipment is being tested in Oregon for this, but if cost is such that it would not be economical for the farmers then it won’t happen here. I’m just sick of seeing farmers go under because of presure, taxes, and other influences. It is a way of life that should be passed down through the generations and treasured.

DFO: I still prefer the farmers to subdivisions — and I love the open space of the Rathdrum Prairie. But I don’t live in the path of the smoke.
