  • Pioneer rail line could return to rural Oregon
    Guest
    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 ...

  • A carbon tax and shift can grow Oregon economy
    Guest
    Why is institutionaliz ed blatant public deceit so acceptable now? How do 3 smart people become so duped and dishonest? Are they so naive and unprincipled that they are simply impressionable children susceptible to falling for any influences? Their lack of curiosity and need for confirmation is astounding. And media doesn't seem to know those smoke stack plumes are water vapor. All of the Oregon left is waging their climate war on carbon and have ...

  • Springfield plans major Gateway Mall renovation
    Guest
    I have been going to movies at movies 12 since the day it opened, I sat in the front row of the first movie ever played there. As a kid it was the special place we would go with our dad. Now as a grown up it is the special place I go with my kids. Two of my kids watched their first movie there. We are verry saddened that it will be the end of our family tradition. Sucky move gateway mall!

  • Private liberal arts education: superior outcomes, competitive price
    Guest
    The student who graduates in 4 years also has more experience. Firms pay for experience. The 2 years of income will never be regained by the student who takes 6 years. If you invest the 2 years of income with compounding the difference is nearly the total cost of a college education. www.collegesoultions.com

  • Springfield plans major Gateway Mall renovation
    Guest
    I would think that the discount theater is one of the biggest draws to the mall. The people who use it don't have a lot of money to spend but since there aren't any high end retailers at the mall, it make a perfect place for them to shop.

  • Pendleton Woolen Mills' new CEO spins company into the future
    Guest
    I stopped buying Pendleton products when they cast aside American workers in preference for Chinese workers. There's something truly revolting about such a company exploiting the Native American heritage, reducing it to Chinese kitsch. Makes me ill. And the argument that they "can't compete" without doing business in China is utter baloney. It's the same old corporate lie. These days, I go to Faribault Mills when I need a blanket.

  • Oregon approves permit for oil train terminal near Clatskanie
    Guest
    Since Global's investment plans range from $50 to $70 million, why in the world should taxpayer pick up $2 m of the improvements they want to make? Obviously, they have the bucks to do it all themselves. The Oregon Transportation Commission decides Friday morning whether to allow the subsidy to go forward or not.

  • Moda Health President Dr. William Johnson balances life, work, play
    Guest
    He now has Moda health denying any new physicians the abililty to contract with Moda. This is the only insurance company in Oregon doing so. As a primary care physician my advice is to avoid Moda Health at all costs and choose another insurance provider. This guy seems to be more about boosting his own ego than taking care of Oregonians.

  • Oregon top in new insurance coverage
    Guest
    Read the article and it's all about MEDICAID. OK so we open the door for easier access to Medicaid which is "free" (except most doctors won't take it) and we're supposed to be surprised that people take advantage of the opportunity. I bet you could increase the servings of vegetables eaten by offering them for nothing. That more people have Medicaid cards doesn't mean better care. There was a large study here in Oregon that demonstrated this ...

  • Romanian immigrants dominate adult foster care niche
    Guest
    I worked for 10 years as a nursing assistant in WA in AFHs, nursing homes, rehab, and hospitals. Not every adult family home is perfect. Cutting corners or malpractice is inevitable in any type of business, but overall the care I was able to provide in an AFH was miles above that of a nursing facility. In a nursing facility I was responsible for 14-16 patients, the majority were not ambulatory. If a patient could walk, but was wabbly, they would be ...

  • Romanian immigrants dominate adult foster care niche
    Guest
    To the various racist comments regarding Romanians: Romanians work hard to get what they earned, same as any other person, it was not handed to them. I can only understand someone’s hatred of successful immigrants as jealousy of what you yourself have not been able to achieve. Romanians battle a litigious immigration system, learning a new language and adapting to a new culture, while you are born in a country with every opportunity available right ...

  • Women lag in bike riding and business
    Guest
    I've received service on my bike at the downtown Bike Gallery in the past, and found them to be friendly and efficient. And while I have only found male (or nearly all male) employees at the bike shops I've been to, and always applaud women having more of a presence in any field that is male-dominated (and also the reverse- I work in early childhood education and respect and admire a guy who wants to dedicate his life to working with kids and know ...

    Guest
    Tom - Very timely piece. It somewhat mirrors my recent experience, except with a different company. I recently needed to ship a number of small packages for a Kickstarter project and looked at both Stamps.com and Pitney Bowes. I was a little confused on how to get First Class postage, with tracking, on Stamps.com, my first pick. I was in a hurry, so I decided to check out Pitney Bowes rather than digging further through Stamps.com for my answer ...

    From my chair, I see the growing inequities between pampered pets, and those unfortunate pets, who have only experienced terror, objectification , and abandonment, at the hands of cruel, mis-guided, and overwhelmed owners, since birth. Just as there exist class divides between societies of people, so the same holds true for animals. If you don't believe me, take a trip to the Humane Society, and ask them what becomes of pets from puppy mills ...

    Ouch, reading all of these comments makes me sad. No large company is perfect, but my little center is. They allow me the space to hire great teachers and provide outstanding curriculum to educate the beautiful children in my care. Sorry there are so many disgruntled employees. I don't feel that way.

    The investment objective of the Scheme is to seek to generate long-term capital growth from an actively managed portfolio primarily of equity and Equity Related Securities. There can be no assurance or guarantee that the investment objective of the Scheme would be achieved. Equity IndiaFund is one of the best plan.
