Reader pic of the Board in Heber....

"We need to all work together to help educate the public on the mess the environmental activists have created. I have been working on bringing more publicity to these issues. I currently work with several activists and experts on natural resource issues. I am writing articles that are being published both in the newspapers and on the internet. I'm interested in working together and I would like to know more about your activities.
Kathy"

****************************

We who make Heber, Arizona, our home are very pleased to see this billboard which expresses our feelings exactly and are happy to learn of your efforts. Are you printing and selling t-shirts with the same message? Many people would love to be able to help the cause by purchasing and wearing such items. We have had made several t-shirts on a small scale with clever original designs which have been very popular and have sold quickly, the proceeds of which helped in disaster relief efforts.

We're wondering if you have made contact with others from our area who are supportive of your efforts? We would like to distribute a printed copy of the information you have put on your website to people throughout our community, with your permission.

Sincerely,

Frank and Dawna

****************************

We live in Payson and will be going through Heber in a couple of weeks on our way to Denver and are looking forward to seeing the billboard in person. It looks GREAT in the picture and it is time something like this starts happening. We are a family of hunters who feel our hunting future threatened by the same group(s) that is trying to shut the forest down. As God fearing people we read in Genesis the first chapter that God gave us dominin over the land and the animals and all the earth. Not only does this explain to us that God has given us the "right" to use the earth responsibly, it explains that He COMMANDS us to do so. Keep up the good work. We will not be able to make your meeting as we have Bible Study on Wednesday nights, but our prayers will be with you and your efforts. God speed.

Steve and Karen

****************************

No kidding.

I just saw the sign in Heber.

I think it gets the point across Good job.

I'm an artist (sculptor) with a commercial art background and I'd also like to commend the one who designed it.

Also, you people probably know Buck Wickham, I think he's the head firefighter for the USFS in AZ. If he's not a part of your org. then know he's one that agrees with you (we were neighbors growing up.)

Now for the biggest mind-blower. I consider myself a tree-hugger. I mean, all my life I've been worried about the natural world (sometimes even as a youngster I was anti-human and pro-nature) I just don't know how to get through to the ones you so aptly called environMENTALists that ignoring nature is like ignoring a child - it's abusive!!

Other than contributing money, let me know if I can help.

Normally, I'd say this isn't Breaking News.

But it really does deserve a good look by everyone. This is exactly the kind of grass roots activism that makes FR powerful far beyond its immediate and apparent impact. So I hope it will stay in Breaking News, at least for the rest of the day. FReepers need to see and to know that these kinds of grassroots campaigns can be effective, need to see how people are getting the job done.

Congratulations on your substantial effort and your post about it here at FR.

This is an outstanding project!

I see a lot of harpies promoting futile protests but this is not one of them. This is good effective action.

Well done!!

Also need an AZ freeper to ping AZ freepers regarding this last letter, just recieved. Sorry for the double ping!!!!!

Hello,

I would like permission to use the information on your website in regards to the sign you recently put up in Heber, Arizona. I am a news reporter with the local paper, Pine Graphics Weekly in Overgaard. I saw your recent billboard sign and visited your website. I am not certain as to the information I would use, but I would like to be able to put some background information in the paper with the picture of the billboard. Residents have been curious as to the people behind the sign.

Thank you
Lori
Pine Graphics Weekly

Thank you for the alert. This is GREAT news. I hope our state legislators are aware of this effort.

I attended the opening of the session, and the fires were a prime topic. Even Butch mentioned in the State of the State that the "environmentalists" had to give some ground.

I just renewed my yearly after taking a year off (shame on me). I would be willing to pay 5 dollars a sticker for a fundraiser but 25 is a lttle steep.
Maybe a two pay tier for non-members $25 and a smaller fee for members. Just a suggestion.
