Convention / Ordinance limited Uvestock operations FROM PAGE A1 TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he thatgiveth honour to a fool." — Proverbs 26:8 CORRECTION Because of incorrect information given to the Journal, the address for Christopher Phillips was incorrect in Thursday's listing of district court items. Phillips, accused of drug crimes, is not a resident of 864 Navajo; his current address could not be confirmed. The county hired two inspectors to make sure all livestock operations remained in compliance, not wanting to rely solely on state inspectors. Since November 1993, Archer said, no new permits have been applied for, and no large-scale operation has expanded in his county. Development of the ordinance showed citizens they could work together for the benefit of all, address issues head on, be state leaders, and that intensive livestock operations could be built and operated without significant cost to farmers or the environment, Archer said. In its 725 square miles, Halifax County has 33 intensive livestock operations, Archer said. In Nash County, which is smaller in area but larger in population, 200 in- tensive livestock operations have been constructed. "There were no local county regulations to restrict them," Archer said. Had Halifax County not addressed the issue and implemented regulations, it also might haye had an influx of such operations. Although the results of the effort were good, Archer said development of the ordinance wasn't easy or smooth. "There are no right or wrong answers," he told Kansas county commissioners. "The economy and the environment are both important." Sen. Don Biggs, D-Leavenworth, said the Halifax County example showed the wisdom of taking a long-range instead of short- range view of an issue. "It was an excellent example of keeping that balance," he said. *-
