Janice Robertson of Astoria is campaigning to ban animal circuses because she believes they are cruel.

She will be presenting the Clatsop County Commissioners with a petition of 259 signatures in support of her campaign.

She hopes the county will follow the lead of Redmond, Wash., which passed a ban some 10 years ago.

The meeting will be 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Judge Boyington Building at Ninth and Commercial streets.
