Clara Barefoot-Sehorn, a grade school teacher in the Portland area, supported the Measure 6 effort and mobilized her students to share their feelings about the beach through their drawings. She then presented the Beach Book shown here to Bob Straub. Among other signers, Secretary of State Clay Myers signed it with the message: "Beaches are for kids, not cars."
