I think that this example from Wichita KS would be a good example for Skagit County to follow.  A community BBQ/teriyaki party?  http://www.kfdi.com/news/blm-protest-changed-to-cookout

Starting Friday, Utahns can start lighting fireworks. It's a great time of year, but comes with a cost — especially with the air that we breathe.

+Otto Hunt Interesting question.  Near as I can tell via Google, the two groups interested in this are perfumers and pharmacuetical nebulizer manufacturers.  The key would seem to be getting the particles to the surfaces needed.  Scent dectectors for the perfumers, sinuses or bronchial tubes for the nebulized drugs.  Not sure if this meets peer review level scientific research, but there is money on it: http://www.perfumerflavorist.com/fragrance/research/Patent-Pick-Millimeter-Matters-372594642.html and http://www.nasoneb.com/pdfs/NasoNebparticlesizeairflow.pdf.

Every Row a Path

Farmworkers in Washington State's Skagit Valley

In the berry fields of Washington State’s Skagit Valley, migrant teenage girls struggle to ​​balance family and school with back-breaking agricultural work. Statistically, they are destined to fail, but five young women are determined to beat those odds.

The film “Every Row a Path,” which screens in Seattle this weekend, teaches us the difficulty of growing up as a child worker.

+Gregg Gies​​ there is reason to be optimistic. Despite all the tension and broken communication, people were able to eventually build better mutual understanding and strengthen the community. All we need is more patience.

Insect populations are declining dramatically in many parts of the world, recent studies show. Researchers say various factors, from monoculture farming to habitat loss, are to blame for the plight of insects, which are essential to agriculture and ecosystems.
