Guest Opinion by Pep Fujas, Medford Mail Tribune, January 28, 2018

I want Hazel and Zoe to grow up experiencing the Oregon I know and love — one with thriving farms and snowy ski areas. For this to happen, our rural economies dependent on outdoor recreation and agriculture must take precedent over the fossil fuel industry and its carbon emissions.
