From departed politicians to controversial wolves, it's time to update some recent Oregon Business stories.

 0712 Conversation RudyCrew Like everyone else, we've been following the news (gossip, really) about the recently-departed Rudy Crew. Crew lasted barely a year in his position as Oregon Chief Education Office before defecting to become a college president in New York. The high-profile Crew made $1,300 a day here, though he rarely worked on Fridays and violated state expense and travel rules numerous times. He also held 25 jobs in 40 years. Tsk tsk. None of this came up in our July 2012 profile of the then newly hired Crew.

In happier news, three new wolf pups were caught on camera in Oregon's newly formed Mount Emily pack. Well, that is happy news for the wolf tourism groups we profiled in our July/August issue, but not so happy for the ranchers that are fighting to keep wolves away from their cattle. wolfpups

0713 Tactics 01 In our latest issue we also spoke to Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick, head of the Tigard company that eschews chasing the latest and greatest in favor of catering to the growing demographic of aging baby boomers. Marick is a finalist in the individual achievement category of the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network awards. The other two contenders are Puppet Labs CEO Luke Kanies and Cloudability CEO Mat Ellis. Winners will be announced on Sept. 17.

we have heard numerous stories about the wolf population which was reintroduced, is not the same species of wolf as was native to the northwest; that this present species is bigger, likes to kill just for the fun. In Eastern Oregon, we have had experiences of the new wolf stalking 3 yr old humans, till wolf was shot; of not killing one baby animal-whether calf or lamb or elk or deer, but several--and not eating any. Is this a more aggressive, bigger wolf than was native???
