Nancy speaks up about protecting streams in time of drought, Peninsula Press January 6, 2015

Nancy Smith, chair of the Environmental and Water Resources Committee, thinks there isn’t time to waste. “Honestly, if we can’t save our fish, I think that’s a failure of our community, because the native fish are part of our community too,” she said.

Smith says there is some dispute over whether the water board has the authority to protect the fish and is concerned that the board will ultimately scrap the plan.

“The Rotary Club really likes to leverage resources and pull our resources to meet community needs,” Rotary Club president Nancy Smith said. “One of the compelling reasons that we’ve supported funding this request was that a lot of these kids can’t afford their own safety equipment and things could get kind of chaotic in a pool. These life jackets bring peace of mind once they are put on; parents and staff can worry less, and they will help the community have a safe, enjoyable summer.”
