    Guest
    He did cheat and lost his license. He lost privledges at all Portland hospitals. I am a very sad person and he was watching over me while my surgeon went back to get his fellowship. I continued to complain I wasn't well and he suggested we do a cat scan, I called later that afternoon and his med assistant told me there was nothing wrong yet I could hardly move. Two months later I end up with 2 accesses that were never discussed because he never ...

  • Aim High
    Guest
    My biggest issue with this is that it completely leaves out education in the construction trades. Some recent studies illustrate that over the next 10 years, close to 50% of our country's construction trades people will retire, and we are not filling the hopper with new young recruits. This career path will not only be in demand more and more in the future, but it provides an excellent lifetime earnings potential (journeymen in most trades are in ...

    The tech industry does have a long way to go, and companies like Metal Toad are helping. The culture fit isn't about external qualities like age, ethnicity, gender, etc. I'm neither a "young white male coder," nor an "old white male manager." I'm not a kombucha/beer-d rinking hipster. I can't win foosball to save my life. I would probably break any number of bones if I tried to ride one of those scooters. The culture we share is a drive to keep ...

  • Cost of $15 minimum wage hike could be too onerous
    Guest
    I bet the politicians "never considered" the additional tax revenue that would be generated from an increase in the minimum wage. Their "only concerns" were for the low income people trying to get ahead....Yea right, and I have a bridge to sell also. I guess the upside of the proposed increase is that the percentage of people ACTUALLY paying taxes will go up.. Join the 50% of Americans that are already paying taxes. Skeptical small business owner ...

    Delta is a high cost carrier to Atlanta, GA. Rarely is the roundtrip under $500. Portland needs competition from Alaska or Southwest.

    Born in Portland in 1958 I have detailed memories of Oregon's beauty traveling with my family. Many things have changed, billboards and logging waste 'teepee' burners that marked the trail to the coast for us kids are long gone to the delight of us all. I've lived in Hawaii but still prefer Oregon, despite its crazy politics.

  • Romanian immigrants dominate adult foster care niche
    Guest
    This is the truth for sure. There is a AFH on the block I live on and it is the most horrible place I have ever seen, Yet the county does nothing about it. The people that live on this block have complained for years. But no one does a thing about the situation. The foul language and violence that comes from this home is incredible. To me this is just all a scam, money making abusing system that needs to be changed. Only if citizens really knew what ...

    Stupid article! Mostly the author reminiscing about his childhood. Really??? Oregon has a horrible reputation for being hostile to business and we have lost several companies to other states because of it yet the author is praising three forty year old bills. An example of someone with too much time of their hands.

    Foreclosure proceedings aren't always as cut and dry as one would think. If you're facing foreclosure, the Oregon Sheriff's Department provides foreclosure prevention resources at oregonsheriffss ales.org Also, if you're looking for available foreclosure properties in Oregon, you can find all that info at oregonsheriffss ales.org as well.

  • State officials to investigate Portland highway capacity
    Guest
    "Ask any commuter in the Portland-metro area: The roads have too many drivers." That's one way to look at it. The streets might be okay if folks at least occasionally use alternative commuting methods, but our highways are way too small for a metro area. The most laughable is where I-5 meets I-84. The south bound meeting of these two large freeways is 2-lanes feeding into 1-lane. It's a joke, and unfortunately no amount of planning will save ...

  • Romanian immigrants dominate adult foster care niche

    I worked seven years in AFH. I see how drastically this business is in need of reform. I mean this on the side of DHS investigators, and with in the homes too. The lavish perks of ownership attract people to this business for the wrong reasons. The home I worked in was a prime example. The provider cheated on about all she could. She manipulated the investigator and his shortcomings made the position he held worthless. She cheated the IRS, medicade ...

  • Bendafornia: What’s driving the Northern California migration?
    Guest
    California was the destination spot for those in search of a better life. It had more jobs, more land, more sunlight, and more opportunity. Families voted with their feet, and California grew spectacularly.. . Now this golden age of migration into the state is over. For the past couple of decades, California has been pushing more people to other states than it receives from them.

  • Public companies must disclose CEO-worker pay ratio
    Guest
    This has gotten out of hand! In some cities entry level jobs are making more than some skilled positions. And in New York, fast food workers will be making $15 an hour while office workers will be making $9 per hour. Now the SEC wants all public companies to present a CEO-worker pay ratio. When the average worker takes on the responsibility of running a multi-million dollar company (including 100's of employees), then they too can make those ...

    I live near both the New Seasons in Cedar Hills and the new MOC in Cedar Mill. To me, New Seasons is much easier to shop at -- MOC is too much like Disneyland -- so many distractions. I think it's meant for people who view shopping as a form of entertainment, and who don't look at the total when they swipe their cards at the checkout!
