  • Dennis Richardson asks U.S. attorney to investigate Kitzhaber, Hayes
    Guest
    About time someone this corrupt couple doesn't control investigates some of the tricky deals and wasted taxpayer money these two have directed to themselves and their buddies. I hope they look at the money that the Department of Energy has been doling out to their "green energy" friends who don't meet the qualifications to get it. Example: Shepherd Flats Wind Farm The governor and his girlfriend have been controlling that agency in a most blatant ...

  • The Latest: Here Comes Walmart
    Guest
    we definitely need Walmart in Warrenton - we need the jobs and the lower prices - Warrenton already has A DOLLAR TREE and the residents love it and shop there all the time we're tired of being raped by Fred Meyer and Safeway stores and don't like driving all the way to Longview or Woodland to get to a Walmart. We could also use a Winco store.

    Guest
    I was in Safeway in Oregon, the other day, and I was going to pick up a couple of 1 lb. tubs, as I usually do once a week. They were no longer on the shelf, let alone a spot for them. They still had the larger lite spread, that I will not use. Can you tell me if they are no longer carrying it? I went to Bi Mart and bought the last 3 they had for a dollar more per tub.

  • Measure 91: What Oregon Businesses Need to Know
    Guest
    There was a study done that found that employers far more often pursued policies that had more to do with exercising power over their employee's lives than with efficiency or the maximization of profit. If an employer's insurance policy requires drug testing for actuarial purposes, then perhaps many of us would have to just put up with it. But much more often we see that the real interest in 'zero tolerance' policies is the same as keeping workers ...

  • Measure 91: What Oregon Businesses Need to Know
    Guest
    Good question and one that a lot of people have. Employers have the right to enforce their drug policy, including one that has zero tolerance for marijuana. But it's always best to talk with a lawyer if there are specific questions applying a drug and alcohol policy.

    Guest
    If marijuana is legalized for recreational use in Oregon and an employer has a policy that includes drug testing and termination if an employee is found to have traces of marijuana (THC) in their blood. Can the employer still terminate the employee with traces of THC?

    Guest
    At what point do you guys distance yourselves? KGW reports she just the so called, "...first lady confessed to planning an ILLEGAL marijuana operation". And Kitzhaber will still probably get elected! I encourage you and you readers to try a different approach. Hope you might consider me as your Write In Candidate for Oregon Governor. I'm not affiliated with a party and I don't accept donations. Royce Cantrell for Oregon Governor The "Write In" ...

    You refer to her as the First Lady...I am not sure she is married to the Governor. I am not sure you should recognize her as such until she is actually married to him. I know she was married twice before once to a fellow named Abraham Abraham for Ethiopia!

    Lee, Great article. As someone that works with a lot of businesses helping them explore the importance of content in their marketing strategy, I really never thought about the wealth of knowledge in the market from displaced journalists. Thanks for bringing that to a lot of people's attention.

    You are quite right, Dave, all media types are weathering this trend. And many of the folks I spoke to for the piece did indeed point out the industry's unkind approach to family life and workers' commitments outside the newsroom. Perhaps the news biz can learn from quality metrics in other fields as it rebuilds, now that those fields are becoming equally competitive for the same talent pool. One good thing to come of this trend, I think: journalists ...

    Great story, Lee. I realize you focused on former newspaper reporters; the story is just as fruitful looking at former broadcast reporters--myse lf included. The irony: You mentioned Colby Reade, APR, in your story--a former radio reporter in Portland. Look again at many of the "PIO" (public information officer) jobs in Portland and Salem, and you'll find former journalists. It's a natural transition: Although I loved the news business, and thought ...

  • Oregon GMO labeling will not impact food cost
    Guest
    The title of this article is misleading. It implies that Oregonians may expect price increases if Measure 92 passes when in fact the content of the article states the opposite. Evidence shows that GMO labeling would not affect pricing more than a couple dollars per year per person.

    My wife and I are both farmers, and, somewhat retired. We would love to have the Pioneer reinstated as a means of travel for us. It is a much needed means to travel for young and old. I know we would enjoy trips with our family, including grandchildren and friends. My father was a Barber on the Southern Pacific and other trains in the midwest as a young man. He thoroughly enjoyed the people he met, as well as, the trips. It was very classy. We ...

  • Oregon carbon tax outlines receive positive response from legislative committee
    Guest
    Gee just what Oregon's moribund economy needs is yet another tax. That the amount isn't significant isn't the issue. The COSTS of the bureaucracy to administer, account for, monitor and determine compliance will continue to expand. More government regulations will continue to discourage new business and established businesses will incur additional expenses that will mean cutbacks in other areas. Wouldn't you know a Democrat is "tantalized" by the ...
