    Another worthless piece of legislation from pink Floyd and crew. More do nothing, help no one, impossible to enforce bills passed by the libtard politicos.

  • Bill in Oregon Senate would require health plans to pay for abortion
    Guest
    Almost hilarious. Senator Steiner Hayward states: "Women's bodies are our choices". "Our bodies are our bodies and it's not up to the government to tell us what to do with them." Yet she brings forth legislation (read government telling a business what to do - if passed) requiring specific procedures to be covered in the State of Oregon. Just how is that helping our state as a whole? Is it bringing in new businesses? Is it providing additional ...

    progress is organic...if it doesn't grow, it wilts away. We suffer here badly when we are in a recession, so we have to think long-term and embrace growth.

  • Cylvia Hayes breaks silence with shots at media via social media
    Guest
    I think all those who are guilty but have gotten away with hoodwinking the public feel this way, congratulations to the news media for reporting, sorry Kate Brown is still going after those who leaked the emails, even though she publicly applauded those who tell the public when they see our elected officials doing wrong. I think MaNam Sheila the "black widow" of the Rashnesh Puram made similar claims before she was caught red handed trying to ...

  • The Dalles makes a comeback
    Guest
    This article makes The Dalles sound way better than it really is to live here. Making only (less than) 3/4 of what the surrounding areas make, The Dalles is really where people go to wait for their death. It's a town designed for those who are either in assisted living or nursing homes and the leaders, where they sound like they're forward thinking in this article, don't seem to have the fire lit under their hind quarters to change much of anything.

    She linked to Lewinsky's talk about "public humiliation" and "shame." Too bad her actions show that she obviously doesn't know the meaning of those words. Here are a couple of new words Ms. Hayes: Prison, Income Tax Evasion, Grifter, Bankruptcy.

    Ms Hayes, aka the First Shack Up blames the media rather than her own unseemly actions for the downfall of the Kitz Administration. That she obfuscated, tried to dispose of records in the dump, lied to Kitz, to the Media and to the people of Oregon must be irrelevant. The entire episode is like a bad soap opera and an embarrassment to our state. Enough of those awful people. I cannot wait to see them both frog marched to prison.

    I am long time resident of The Dalles. I grew up here and love it. I never left and have started my businesses here. The Dalles should be known as Pioneer City. The Name speaks for itself and needs no tagline.

    Perhaps Oregon is not best for growing marijuana if it taps a diminishing resource? Are we progressive enough to try to forestall a carbon emissions nightmare or are we all smoking something? Isn't the smell of the growing plant a bit skunk-like. Anyone?

  • Closing the Gap: The two Oregons and the way forward
    Guest
    As a born and bred and deeply engaged Metro Portlander relocated to Curry County I see how the lines have been drawn. Rural counties have historically shrugged off the list of those-who-know- best-by-evaluat ion and have no solid experience, and found their own way to manage what they have. Rural counties are acutely aware of their resources and deficits and don't need them laid out one-more-time by Metro minds. It has become an insult to those ...

    Take a trip to the most rural areas of Oregon ( farthest from Portland) and you will find that your suggestions do not play well. Having lived in the southernmost part of the state for over 35 years, I have seen what the environmentalis t mentality has done to the lumber communities. Where there were once 5 mills, there is now one. You cannot relocate your community to be "closer to Portland"! The fight over O&C monies that have supported the ...

  • Pendleton Woolen Mills' new CEO spins company into the future
    Guest
    Back in the day, there were a lot of things that Pendleton designed but didn't have the capability to make themselves. Of course, back then they outsourced the production to other companies in the US, rather than foreign countries, but the production was still outsourced even then. For example, the iconic Westerly sweaters were outsourced to a mill in Winona that could produce the thick knit specified for the sweater. The Winona mill made ...

    I propose anyone that is illegally arrested for shooting an invasive species, the true conservationist put together a legal defense fund so that these conservationist that are eliminating a dangerous non native predator get the defense they deserve. Either that or buy a bigger bunch of shovels.

    wrong wrong wrong. gray wolves are a NATIVE SPECIES. Livestock are the NON NATIVE INVASIVE SPECIES. The misinformed rural anti-wildlife extremists need to brush up up on their facts because they are seriously misinformed. There are far more wolves in this state than ODFW, and the wolf supporters will admit. I can name 3 packs in this state that I have either been surrounded by, or have physically seen. These non native wolves are destroying ...

    And predictably, the non native wolf comes up. A grey wolf is a grey wolf is a grey wolf. There are no non native Canadian wolves haunting Oregon. If the number of anecdotal wolf sightings, wolf attacks, and wolf depredations were true there would be no people, no livestock, just huge oversized timberwoofs (yes some people that sight these non native species call them woofs) gobbling up each new generation of cows and humans. Yikes watch out ...

    The truth of the matter is that native wolves were already here in Oregon before the Canadian Gray wolf was illegally introduced into the state and those in charge chose to ignore that to promote the wolf agenda. There were reported sightings of wolves in Oregon in the early 1990s. I witnessed a wolf just a short distance away three years before the authorities announced that wolves had entered the state 200 miles to the east of me. I also heard one ...

    "Lastly there is no research showing wolves benefit ecosystems which are not parks, the largest benefit to wolves on the landscape is so people like jeff feel better about being outdoors." Where to start with the misdirected stereotyping and fear mongering about wolves.... Here are some facts Hunting of predators can easily become unsustainable (Journal of Applied Ecology, 2009, 46:1350-1356). Recent discussions in professional journals have ...

    The economics of wolves are great if you don't ranch or you don't hunt,you may benefit. First problem, wolves eat other animals, doesn't matter if those other animals are endanger or not. Makes wildlife management harder. Jeff and others like to use Yellowstone as a example, where wolf watching generates 35 million, Montana has a 3 billion tourist industry. Of the 150,000 tourist who traveled to Yellowstone to see wolves the park says only 15000 say ...

    Hunters are great at saving elk and deer to insure they have plenty of targets for themselves, but horrible at conserving carnivores. Aldo Leopold, the father of modern game management, said this which modern hunters have apparently entirely forgotten, " Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left. That is to say, you cannot love game and hate predators".
