Vote in Mt. Ashland Expansion Poll!

Ashland paper is running a poll - It's not scientific but we need to show opposition to the expansion. Obviously the pro-expansion folks are getting out the vote. Please vote!
If you don't already know - the Mt. Ashland ski area expansion involves clearcutting and chairlift construction in a roadless area in the middle of a sensitive wetlands (city of Ashland watershed) with several threatened species impacted. A coalition of environmental organizations are suing the Forest Service but much of the issue is a political matter to get the Ashland City Council to oppose the expansion project.
