  • Zidell family submits permits for South Waterfront office buildings
    Guest
    Obtaining a building permit in the European Union varies according to country. There is a very big difference in time, costs and efforts, if we were to compare obtaining a building permit in the capital city or in any other city or town. Obtaining a Slovak building permit for a family house in surroundings of Bratislava may only take 3 months, whereas obtaining a Slovak building permit for a residential apartment building in Bratislava may take ...

  • Port of Portland director criticizes mayor
    Guest
    Bill Wyatt has long been a voice of common sense and wise advice for the Portland metro area. He will be missed after his retirement. Will there be anyone left to push back - even a little - on environmentalis t fanatics (typically affluent and comfortable like RFK Jr.) who care nothing about the opportunity loss and poverty creation they are causing?

  • Hundreds of Oregonians protest proposed LNG pipelines
    Guest
    Robert Kennedy Jr famous for being born to a famous family and little else didn't want windfarms in his back yard. Fine...that's his backyard although the irony of a green energy advocate dismissing non petroleum power is a bit delicious. However for him to fly across the country to complain about a pipeline while pretending to be for "the little people" is also a touch ironic. Southern Oregon is moribund as is Warrenton and other places where ...

    I am totally impressed with the way Diane Wiscarson practices special ed law and runs her business. She pays attention to details and in very thorough. Aside from that, she is kind and compassionate. I like her motto that "the child is the client."

    The City of Lake Oswego has proposed a bike path on train right of way between Lake Oswego to South Water Front which in turn connects to OHSU by OHSU Tram. Suggest that this network bike/pedestrian link should be promoted.

    GOOD FOR YOU, YOU PROBABLY ARE NOT "GREEDY" AND ONLY VOLUNTEER. (WONDER HOW U PAY YOUR BILLS). IF YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM, JOIN THEM (AND SEE HOW HARD THEY EARN THEIR MONEY AND HOW MUCH THEY HAVE TO PUT UP WITH). GLAD YOU'RE NOT OF EUROPEAN DESCENT AND YOUR ANCESTORS WERE NATIVE INDIANS! OH, THEY ARE NOT? WELL, SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!

    Thanks Kim and Oregon Business for the Portland Employer Bike Summit coverage. As I've said in direct correspondence, it is inaccurate to state that the City of Portland will build 20 new highways. Portland has no plans to build any new highways - nor the space. The point that Margi Bradway illustrated in her keynote speech is that given Metro's projected growth in Portland by 2035, if Portland's rate (mode split) of driving, transit, biking ...

  • Bill introduced to cancel tax kicker
    Guest
    Typical storyline out of Salem, there is never enough money! The politicians in Salem have better insight on how to spend OUR money than we do. Even though BILLIONS of dollars are dedicated to education every year, there is never enough. What is enough money? We need to tell Salem to keep their hands off our kicker refund.

    hey Guest #42 If you are as good at everything in life as you are at spelling then forget it! You may have some issues that those romanian business owners have nice cars and homes but remember that this is America and you can do it as well... It takes a lot of effort and risks and after that you can talk. You and your american fellows should be happy that your mom and pop are taken care of and someone is there to feed them and wipe their butt clean ...

  • Oregon has worst graduation rate in the country
    Guest
    Oregon has very strict graduation requirements. Because passing high-stakes testing is required to graduate, students are more likely not to graduate and drop out. Get rid of the test and watch the rates rise. There are no exit exams in Kansas where a student can warm a seat for 4 years and receive a diploma, the result: Kansas has a higher graduation rate. Ditch the test and graduation rates will rise, not taxes.

    As usual the Limousine Liberals running Portland have dissed working people who need opportunities for good jobs in a growing industry. There is all this talk about income inequality, increasing the minimum wage but when a company offers a new opportunity the ideology trumps reason once again. Who needs a job right?

  • Nike faces Twitter backlash for police-appreciation promotion
    Guest
    Good Job Nike. Don't always agree with them, but glad to see them stand their ground on this campaign. Unfortunately, too many "thugs" wear their shoes, so those are the only ones offended by this. One tweet says police have killed 420 people in 2015. I wonder how many people "thugs" and "gang bangers" have killed in 2015, that is not being reported daily?

    MD Anderson is also home to some of the best biomedical research in the world. You can't just throw money at the problem if you don't have the team to follow through - and you can't build that team from scratch. Portland is a great place to live, but where do you hire people to work with you when there are no top-tier undergraduate and graduate institutions in the area? Who do you hire when every person under 35 years of age wants to work a 20 ...

  • Oregon has worst graduation rate in the country
    Guest
    I agree with Jack, least bothered by paying a couple cents for a gas jockey. Travel to WA state and the cost differential is insignificant. However the fact that I pay 9.9% in income tax and property tax is also substantial means I am left with little in the end. (BTW I am a renter but I recognize that part of my rent check is paying property taxes.) The tax burden must be reduced. It is a killer.

  • Oregon has worst graduation rate in the country

    Have to disagree with Melvis. If taxes aren't cut elsewhere, then we all know that in a few years, we will hear once again how broke the schools are, even with new income. Or it will be some other program needing money. Now, I do support, 100%, giving more money to the schools, because they are under-funded. But, no more taxes. If taxes were the answer, then everyone would already be happy now because we already pay enough in taxes. Pumping our ...

  • Oregon has worst graduation rate in the country
    Guest
    To my fellow Oregonians... at some point you have to be willing to sacrifice one of your "birthrights" -- Not pumping gas and no sales tax. A 3% sales tax would go along way toward solving this problem. And don't tell me to cut taxes somewhere else if you're going to impose a sales tax. That's the problem There's not enough money going into education in Oregon. We've become the Mississippi of the the West Coast. That's embarrassing.
