The decision to move the Coast Guard Helicopter operations from Newport to North Bend has drawn much concern and opposition from the recreational and commercial fishing community, but non-boater recreational users (like unknowing surfers, swimmers and beach-goers) likely have more to lose in this horrible decision that puts our local community and tourists at risk. Surfers, tourists, recreational users of all kinds, we need your support to help keep the Coast Guard Helo in Newport! Please read on and take action!
Plastic is so much a part of our everyday lives that we often neglect to think about the impact it has on our environment. I will not attempt to forsake plastics innumerable uses or deny the fact that without plastic we might not be as advanced a civilization as we are. [Just think about all of the plastic used in the healthcare field...staggering.] What I will say is that we have become too familiar with abusing this material in our day to day life.
