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: “Governor Forms Oregon Wildfire Response Council

It is not the "Wildlife" council...... wildfire council.

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.

Re: “The Mean Streets of Winter

Thanks for this information! It is very helpful.
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 https://www.evictiony.com/category/help-paying-rent/amp/ 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: “Calls to Action on Race

This is a very, very important article. Thanks for shedding more light on the issues and problems that students of color face in our community. If I could do a bit of KPOV promotion here: I will be re-broadcasting the two-hour radio show I did on the October 2018 student town hall on race on Friday, March 22, 10 am to noon, at 88.9 fm; streaming live and archived at http://kpov.org. It is also available on podcast at http://kpov.org. --Michael Funke

Re: “The Struggles of Snowmaggedon

Cant stand Pfieffer and associates. Ripped me off, turned my 3 month DUII diversion into 7 months of treatment. They take advantage of people with good insurance. Took them another 3 months to reimburse me the insurance money, they made me pay for everything up front. At least they're doing something good for the homeless people with all the money they take from people. Best Care was so much better to deal with, way better experience with them.
