HUMBOLDT COUNTY, California, January 29, 2003 (ENS) - Accelerated logging has
polluted some 85 percent of the waters in California's North Coast region, uprooted
protected redwoods and damaged private property, but state officials continue
to permit logging companies to avoid complying with environmental regulations.
