Proponents of Proposition 130, designed to save California's forests from logging, began their advertising campaign Wednesday with a commercial intended to show mainstream support for the forestry measure. The 30-second television commercial, which will be aired through Sept. 30 in most major media markets, shows a fresh-faced state park ranger in a Smokey Bear hat strolling through a grove of trees and bemoaning the loss of giant redwoods.
