shappell@herald-mail.com HUYETTS - Members of Citizens to Protect Rights say they have convinced more than 1,000 people in three weeks to sign a petition that would force a public referendum on a county rezoning plan the group is against. But the 50-plus people who attended a CPR meeting Thursday at the Wilson Ruritan club near Huyetts will have to convince more than 2,000 additional people to join their fight to have the issue placed on an election ballot. Thomas A. Fiery said a County Commissioners' Proposed Comprehensive Rezoning plan, which will decrease the ability to develop on rural parcels in many areas of the county, will hurt farmers and rural land owners while staving off development.

tarar@herald-mail.com Del. Christopher B. Shank has come up with a compromise to Washington County's proposal for controlling growth in rural areas, a document he hopes the County Commissioners, landowners, farmers and residents will support. Under Shank's plan, Citizens to Protect Rights (CPR), Citizens for the Protection of Washington County (CPWC) and the Washington County Farm Bureau would agree to the commissioners' growth plan on the condition that landowners be compensated for the possible loss of equity as a result of the county plan.

Preventing a wrong is justification enough To the editor: In both its Aug. 9 "Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down" and its Aug. 12 editorial, The Herald-Mail asks an important question of the group Citizens to Protect Rights. The Herald asks in essence "Do you really believe that saying 'no' to the county's downzoning plan is enough?" That is, is it right for CPR to challenge Washington County's extremely unfair downzoning proposal without offering an alternative? For those not familiar with our group, CPR is a collection of farmers, rural residents and other citizens who seek to protect the equity and property rights of local people.
