The resolution to oppose the Wild Olympics campaign has been passed by the Aberdeen City Council. Arguments for both sides were heard on the council floor Wednesday, with many advocates of the conservation effort fearing that the council’s action would shut the door on talks concerning the proposal. Councilman Paul Fritts says such a notion is just not the case and that discussion will continue, while Councilman Frank Gordon warned that to keep the two sides talking, the city must remain neutral. Aberdeen joins a host of other cities, businesses and groups opposing the Wild Olympics proposal, which would move over 100-thousand acres of Olympic Peninsula land to a protected status. Supporters call it a conservation effort while opponents claim a government land grab.
