  • Tip pool ruling cuts restaurant costs
    Guest
    I am an owner. In 43 other states, I can hire 4 servers for what I pay 1 server in OR. Instead, I have 2 servers. So half the staff, and twice the cost for me. We have had to go "semi" fast food in order to stay afloat. Now, you come in, order at the register, pay then we deliver the food. Basically, I pay 4x the wage for high paid food runners/buspeople. Let me remind you. You are a foodserver....u nskilled labor. You want $9+ an hour? OK. In ...

  • Republican Vic Atiyeh passes away
    Guest
    Interesting that only Republicans could learn from Gov Atiyeh's bi partisan methods? Would be rather nice if Democrats were also interested in working with the other parties. Gov Atiyeh's success was NOT bi-partisanship but in having a vision for Oregon's future and working tirelessly to promote the interests of Oregonians in general. We want jobs, thriving communities, and opportunities. His tax reform is what brought the Silicon Forest into ...

    Guest
    Governor Atiyeh was a true gentleman and one of our best governors. Current Republicans could learn a lot by studying his bipartisan methods, which were highly effective at a time when Oregon needed strong leadership.

    Fact has been double-checked and edited. Summary now reflects Clark County instead of "Douglas County" mistake. Our sincerest apologies for this error.

    Douglas County, Washington? Camas is in Clark County, WA. Douglas County is in central Washington.

  • Oversight? Or gaming the system?
    Guest
    Enjoyed your article very much. There are enough scams without a legitimate (?) company entering the "S" field. Another good subject to delve into may be the over-sixty-two mortgage gimmick. Most banks and other financials are paying out big bucks for so-called celebrities to hawk their goods, such as former Senator Thompson of Tennnesee. Your writing has always been delightful to read and follow, keep it up. Uncle

    A partnership between charitable and government funding of research makes sense. The theory that "billionaires pet projects" would prevent worthy projects from being funded is a canard. NIH has pet projects as well and is not any less biased toward research serving influential politicians who hold the purse strings. One only need look at how funds are allocated in favor of the disease du jour to realize that the more committed parties offering ...

  • The Scott Kveton affair
    Guest
    Media companies love drama. They also jump to conclusions and grab headlines. People with money attract golddiggers and and con artists like ants to a sugar bowl. Why does society ASSUME he is guilty? Have a trial BEFORE you hang him, before you vilify a man, and by association, his family, children, co- workers, and the many who struggle with running companies. Before you accuse him, before you judge him, at least, at the very least .. .. hear ...

    There is still a health risk. Why increase risk of spreading disease? The problem would be solved if gay men didn't sleep around. Petitions don't change facts.

  • Pot advocates submit petition signatures
    Guest
    Honestly do we need to encourage more intoxication with a drug that is nearly impossible to standardize, subject to abuse and overdose, particularly the "edibles" form and proven to cause brain damage, particularly in the young? This is a positive development? I was accosted by a group of youth in Bend last weekend asking if I'd sign the petition...to which I said HELL NO! I was then approached by another young man who said he was asking for ...

    Agreed, it's time to stop treating Cannabis as a crime! Here, in OB Mag, they brag about wine sales going up & up...hmmm, seems to me that would make more drunk drivers on the road?! People need to research the true benefits of Cannabis before condemming! It's medicine that can cure (for instance: cancer treatment -without side effects of chemo & radiation). It's a plant for Pete's sake! Check out "Simpson Oil" or "Charlotte's Web"

    Guest: I agree the wording is biased. The research on the environmental impact of fracking is inconclusive--a nd insufficient. http://environment.yale.edu/envy/stories/fracking-outpaces-science-on-its-impact The article should have described fracking as "a controversial" form of natural gas extraction.

    Guest
    The bias of the unnamed author of this piece is readily apparent. The comment, "an environmentally damaging form of natural gas extraction" is not supported by recent research. Why would EPA approve if it was so damaging? Come on, write a balanced article not a slanted one.

  • Eugene sick leave proposal advances
    Guest
    Why does the Eugene City Council feel they have the right to dictate how a private business is run? As long as we provide safe working conditions, they should keep the h@## out of our business. The problem is the liberal lemmings in Eugene keep reelecting these idiots. Now they feel they can do anything since they pushed through the EMX, against public opinion, pushed through the redesign of Willamette Street (for a so called test period) without ...
