I agree with Fhyre Phoenix's suggestion about offering refuge to people who are living with an intolerable degree of smoke (Mailbox, Oct. 8). We here on the coast are so lucky. Our air quality is much better than the air inland. We should be doing something to help. At the very least we could offer free camping. The large area between U.S. Highway 101 and the ocean just south of Orick used to be available for campers for free. The county should permit that again. Contact your supervisor.
