Re: “Lights Out on Lighting Efficiency?

The RoHS standards in the electronics industry have been in place for years and lead is no longer used. The amount of other substances is so low and so well bound up with compounds that it does not need to be considered as hazardous waste; even California doesn't consider LED bulbs to be.

Re: “Turkey Vultures are Back Again

@anonymous user above; I only spent about five minutes during my lunch googling this, but I was able to find this scholarly reference:…

It shows that in 1973 patagial tags for red-tailed hawks weighed 4 grams, and other birds' patagial tags had weights and sizes proportionate to their body sizes. I would be surprised if the weight had gone up with our advances in material science over the past several decades. Another quick google search shows the low range for red-tailed hawk adult weight at 690 grams. This means that the patagial tag is approximately 0.5% of the bird's body weight.

I'm not specifically aware of how much Jim Anderson weighs, but a 70 lb tag weight would put his weight at 14,000 lbs if the same proportion was maintained. Hopefully this shows just how ridiculous an exaggeration you're making here.

Another quick google: "Ethics of patagial tags". This string will return almost 160 scholarly articles considering various impacts of patagial tags specifically on various aspects of bird behavior and health, and some will include cost-benefit analysis of those impacts versus conservation benefits for the species. Different search strings would likely bring even more results. We cannot fix a problem we don't understand. Period.

Your comment assumes scientist blindly chase data at the expense of the health of the species they are researching. Frankly it is insulting to those who have dedicated their lives to conservation efforts.

Re: “No Charges for Shooter in Jack in the Box Shooting

Lies. They took 8 bullets out of him and all from the back side because he was walking away. No knife was ever found. If that were true, he would have gone to right back to prison since he was on parole.
He was shot by Garris who is an undercover hit man for CODE.

Re: “Calls to Action on Race

Bonita: Thanks for reading. FYI, it's common practice for news organizations to use an acronym for agencies upon second reference. You'll note that Oregon Department of Education is used in the very first paragraph, and then shortened to ODE in subsequent references. And while you're correct in finding two typos in the story (which have now been corrected online), two typographical errors in a piece of this length, which required extensive research, fact-checking and interviewing, hardly warrant not paying a journalist for the work. If readers want stories that matter, they should recognize that the people who wrote them will get paid.
Michael: Thanks for the work you did to highlight the Town Hall, and I'm only sorry that we didn't include info on that rebroadcast in our print edition.
Amy: The angle of the teacher's union is one area we didn't cover in this piece, but seems like a good follow up. Thanks for that info!

Re: “Calls to Action on Race

Bravo to The Source for this story! Oregons sordid history of racial discrimination has put our state way behind on these issues. I have intervened with students to educate in incidents time and time. The bubble of Bend hasnt necessarily given the majority of kids an opportunity to encounter these issues on a large scale. Luckily, our students are starting to stand up for each other better than ever, as their generation is far more woke than ours.

The teachers union has been active in offering equity training in Oregon and BLPS has started some work of their own. Its time to ensure this important professional development is available to all staff! Its also time to hire faculty who reflect our growing diversity.

I'm not sure "resides" is the proper word here: "Once the snow storm resides...". Maybe "subsides"?

Re: “Calls to Action on Race

I agree. This IS a very important subject; however, the article is so poorly written that it shows disrespect to the subject itself. For example, the former PSU professor's name, Dalton Miller-Jones, was, in at least one paragraph, incorrectly given as "Dalton-Miller." This had me scrolling back through the article looking to see who that was.
Also, NEVER assume that the reader knows what "ODE" is. I finally figured out that it probably means the Oregon Department of Education, but it took me a while.
Additionally, the final paragraph has a ridiculous typo: "It's more important now than never..."? I sure hope the writer wasn't paid for this crap, because whoever paid didn't get much for their money.
Now, to address the subject of the article, I am shocked and stunned that the school district seems so absolutely clueless about how to handle racist behavior, particularly when a student took his own life barely a year ago over bullying. This is unacceptable. Students MUST be taught to respect teachers and other students, period, end of story. Students must be told that they will be respected only if they respect others, and if they are not respectful, there should be serious consequences. This is an absolute minimum as a school district policy, and it's not that difficult of a concept.
My final point: To have a "District Leader" "shadow" a student of color, "aiming to understand their school experience," shows the ultimate in denial and naivete. Wake up, people! At least one student has already died because of the way they were treated at school. You need to focus on PREVENTION, and make sure your students are safe at school. I'm surprised you haven't been sued yet.
Now, for a recommendation: Contact school districts that are full of a diverse group of students and see how they handle this. Research it. This is obviously a life-or-death issue, and it needs to be treated as such by the "district leaders." Quit with the mamby-pamby kool-aid sucking and get busy doing your job.

Re: “Rent Control Bill Clears First Hurdle

The strategy of controlling rent is to clear it first. Oregon presented to stabilize the condition families before any rental practices. I think the law was right Bill, not ended the situation he prolonged it and aim to address the affection of humanity. To fix this problem must check for paying rent. The tenant wants more secure ty and Bill, it will remove all the bad words of the landlord if he pays on time. Paying rent on time is the first step towards a peaceful place along with the healthy relationship with owner. Bill ,s law change the mind of common people.

Re: “Turkey Vultures are Back Again

How about a story about the number of animals killed and/or injured simply so some scientist can write a paper. Terrorizing animals simply for humans inability to understand things should have been stopped years ago as how can any relent data be collected from a terrorized injured animal with tags and radio collars attached to them.
Any scientist would laugh at you if you strapped a radio collar on a human that was a size and shape that was proportional to their weight of what we use on animals and expect to get any real data. If Jim Anderson was tracked, tackled, held down and had a 70lb radio collar strapped to his neck, a number spray painter on his forehead and a GPS tracker super glued to his back do you think it may hamper his reactions to movement and natural retractions to every stimuli he encounters.
Self proclaiming yourself a naturalist and citizen scientiest in no way means nature can survive your intrusions or barbaric actions.

Re: “Know Your Grow

I They use Co2. High terpene/flavonoid retention is achieved through a proprietary process they've developed called Terp-Lock, where they often see terpene yields in the double-digit percentages.

I had very specific effects dependent upon which edible I consumed, so I don't find your belief rregarding strain type having no impact to be correct.

The article is in reference to one producer, so most of the time these brands has no bearing on what Peak is producing.

I think the depth and breadth of knowledge of the principles described in the piece negates your assertion that Peak is promoting misinformation and have a lack of R&D. Their position in the market also underscores that.

I agree there are some garbage products in all lanes of the cannabis market which do a disservice to consumers. But I didn't find Peak to be such a brand.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

In response to Rick Burns:

Women should absolutely be celebrated. Today. Every day. And whether you are male, female, white, black, gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, you should applaud this and embrace it.

Celebrating someone, women in this case, can only be a positive thing. It does not affect you in any negative way whatsoever. Not even the slightest. When someone else accomplishes something, we should celebrate their accomplishment(s) along with them. When we react in a negative way, it usually means that we are insecure about our own selves,

Misogyny is not limited to any one political mindset. It still exists across the board. And though it probably wasnt your intention, your letter is a perfect illustration of why its so important to feature and celebrate women as The Source did. Please listen to the new CD by India Arie, Worthy. And celebrate a woman, any woman, today, and every day.

Re: “The Effects of Feeding Deer in Town

Agree with Hinza and Friends. Mule deer have declined over 60 percent in their range in 20 years. More deer are killed by vehicles and poachers than by hunters, predators or disease. Feeding aggregates them and that alters their movements in winter range, increases disease transmittance and makes them vulnerable to collisions or entanglement in fences by altering movements as they move between feeding stations. There is no GOOD food to feed them. Bitter brush is their main winter food. So if you want deer in your yard, protect their natural forage.
I would favor city and county ordinances to ban feeding deer and elk, with a substantial fine.
