Re: “Inching Closer to a Mirror Pond Resolution

"green-generating dam" Mr. Horton, I don't think you can call it green when it kills 6000 fish each year. The Bend hydro Dam has no fish screens on the intake or tail-race. There is no fish passage and the design of the spillway kills fish from the impact at the base of the dam. It is unfair that the irrigation districts and Opal springs are required to invest millions in fish improvements when PacifiCorp does nothing. Additionally, the millions of public dollars spent at the North Unit Dam for fish passage have been mostly a waste of effort since the Bend Hydro Dam has no passage and is hardly more than a mile upstream. No more special treatment for the Mirror pond Dam. Bring it up to a proper standard or get rid of it.

Re: “Berm Burden

MOD273, Valid point... though as a youngish person, shoveling a berm last year before work in front of my narrow driveway was a challenge. I did it, but it was tough with very packed snow... so the prospect of doing my neighbor's driveway too would have been really daunting. Good thing she has a snowblower and some helpful family members to help her out!

Re: “Berm Burden

People could also go out and shovel the berm and do their neighbors berm as well, just saying.

Re: “The Many Faces of Homelessness

My husband and I have been homeless for 2 years. He was a homeless vet he should have never been out there in the first place. With ptsd serving 2 tours the stress and trama caused him to snap destroy the Moterhome wet lived in and threw all my belongings into my truck and set it on fire. Leavning me with no generator a broken down motorhome no clothes no money. No resources I reached out for help from the community with no luck the people that did help me and offer me clothing make up hygiene were the people out there. Drugs or no drugs, we all have our own storys. We all deserve food and shelter regardless of our addictions and vices. I have gone days without food and water people out there are more loving and giving then most shelters or churches. We all need to be homeless at some point in our lives to bring us back to thankfulness and open our eyes to the things we take for granted every day.
We create stronger bonds and friendships. Emotions fears trust and companionship.

I have my 2 children every other weekend and they love to come be with me we make the best of things and we help people struggling. My kids will help pick up trash. Or cook We put our lives aside and help any way we can. Because that's what we all should be doing homeless or not. This season won't last forever but I can appreciate the wonderful things I have learned
