     I am hoping you can direct me.  I live in Lapeer County.  I am an =
active member of the Flint River Watershed Coalition, The Siera Club and =
our local Farmland Preservation Program.  For the last year or more the =
Michigan Mosquito Association has been lobbying our local politician.  =
They want to push an annual 1.4 Million dollar contract through.  In =
this area we have a fast growing group of organic farmers.  =
Unfortunately the control program uses a lot of broad spectrum =
pesticides/adulticides.  We have short notice to educate the =
constituents.  The MMA has been practicing and pushing their program for =
15+ years.  We have less than two months.  Dr. Sodostrum will be giving =
a presentation on the broad spectrum pesticides, which I hope will help =
although I would like other experts that deal with amphibians, fish, =
entomologists who have knowledge of these pesticides and there impact on =
us and our environment.  If you have any contacts, ideas or names that =
could help us in our efforts to educate and inform I would appreciate =
