Re: “Radio Nights: a music education via the airwaves

Dick Martin's Moonglow with Martin on WWL clear channel out of New Orleans and Willis Conover's Music USA on Voice of America were my must listen to radio music programs throughout the 1950s. My older brother was a sports writer in New Orleans, first with the Times-Picayune and later with the Associated Press,and the highlight of my 1960 late July visit was actually meeting my idol of AM radio Dick Martin. I, too, remember the strong black coffee probably replete with chicory and more than likely at least 10 hours old and being a little surprised that Dick Martin looked more like a corporate bookkeeper with ulcers than the bon viviani jazz afficianado I had pictured in my mind for so many years. The last time I heard him on the air was years later when he was broadcast from a station serving the Quad Cities from, if memory serves me, Bettendorff,Iowa.

Re: “Cheri Helt Vying for Buehler's Seat

Co-Organizer of the Women's March and Science March here. Cheri Helt skipped the Science March because she refused to take a written stand on human caused climate change in our application.

Cheri Helt skipped out on a town hall meeting with Nate Boddie.

Cheri Helt is attempting to capitalize on anonymous anti-LGBT accusations against her opponent by touting her support for the LGBT Community. Yet Cheri Helt also declined her invitation to Pride! Central Oregon.

Cheri Helt is a false moderate, like her predecessor. She is a conservative through and through, and dodges questions and stances so she can maintain a false sense of "level headed bipartisan politics."

Vote for Nate Boddie!

Re: “Mount Bachelor Academy: Some Unpleasant Questions

I attended this school - all of the allegations I have heard are undeniably true. Young girls were sexualized and forced to wear fishnet stockings and french maid costumes. After dancing and acting sexually towards their peers as they were coerced to do by the staff at this so called school, they were told what sluts they were, and how they needed to analyze their relationships with the opposite sex. Doing this to teenage rape survivors is especially egregious. Students were encouraged to enact abuse upon fellow students, unspeakable things were said to others in the name of "therapy," although they were always careful not to use the word therapy, but instead called it all "group," due to legal reasons. They were not trained therapists. They were random people who found themselves working in rural Oregon and calling themselves "coordinators," or a variety of other titles. Of course, now many of them list "therapist" in their list of work experience, and I know for a fact that some continue to work with children to this day, which disturbs me greatly. What went on at this school was absolutely not OK and objectively immoral, the older I get the more sure I become of this conclusion. I'm sure many of the staff members convinced themselves of the ultimate morality of their actions, but the truth remains. Reread the first 2 sentences of this post and honestly tell me that was not morally wrong. It was really screwed up, and shame on any adult who convinced themselves that such actions were justified. They were wrong. You were wrong. Even if you had good intentions, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Re: “Proposed Apartment Building Draws Ire

I have no horse in this race either, so could care less what happens with this development or the one by the old Ray's Market. However it would be nice to have both of these developments be architecturally pleasing. Too many apartments are boring urban boxes. I don't think the photo in the article is the actual planned development, it looks like an existing complex somewhere else. To the developers: please put some thought into your designs.

Re: “Proposed Apartment Building Draws Ire

Is the property zoned for apartments? Yes! Was the property for sale and available for ANYONE to purchase for $4.9M? Yes! Will the developer have to meet the requirements for ingress/egress, density, height restrictions, parking, and infrastructure improvements due any impact on the surrounding area? Yes!

Why then, is this developer being harassed by a few NIMBY residents who do not understand zoning, market conditions and the economics and housing demand of a growing city? Maybe these neighboring residents fail to understand private property rights? This is not public property, and the developer must meet code and zoning requirements already in place on this vacant dirt. Unfortunately, appeasing the vocal minority is not one of the city's requirements to build a large project. My money is on the developer who plunked down $5M on raw land, not a few emotional neighbors. If the neighbors prefer to control someone else's investment, then they should have bought this land themselves. Oh, can't afford it? Then sit down and mind your own business.

Who am I? While I do not have a horse in this race, call me a concerned citizen who supports the rights of PRIVATE PROPERTY... both mine and yours.

Re: “Breaking: Cops Arrest Teen Suspect After School Shooting Threat

As an older sister and younger sister of 2 siblings who went to Bend High Schools i am very disappointed in the fact that 3 schools had threats and kids were still forced to attend, also school staff often searches kids phones when taken up or are a distraction and for some reason you guys didnt go through these several children's phones making threats, honestly am not happy with the way this situation is being handled...disorderly conduct seriously!!! this and these students need to be put in juvenile or be charged as adults sense they are in H.S they know the unsafe game they are playing and they think its a joke.

Re: “This just in: Rep. Greg Walden announces a Bend town hall

Thank you so much for taking your time at the Rally on the 5th. You said your non-constits could contact you, so here I am. Bonamici doesn't represent me (or a lot of others).
Concern: ORGAN DONATIONS being given to illegal aliens. I assume you have heard, and may be following the situation at OHSU. This has a lot of us organ donors upset who never knew it was legal for illegal aliens to receive organs ahead of US citizens (I didn't think they could get them at all). I looked up and found the US Government placement group UNDS states all are eligible for receipt of organs regardless of citizenship status. WoW. They must be able to pay, be placed on the wait list. There is a MELD score that will determine if they go to the top of the list. Once they are scored their immigration status is not shown so there is no prejudice. I found another at UCLA who has received 3 livers already ahead of US citizens and is waiting for #4. This policy needs to be reversed....although these are only two, how many others are there that we do not find on-line. My husband and I are considering dropping our organ donor status after we found this out, as are many others I have seen on facebook. I DO NOT WANT MY BODY PARTS going to an illegal alien. I would rather an 80 old vet that did service to this country gain additional life with my donation, than an illegal STAY AT HOME mom who has done nothing but add more children to our overburdened systems.
Thank you Sir, for all you do!

Re: “Deschutes County Sheriff Fires Deputy

The County and its legal counsel reviewed the independent investigation conducted by the Oregon Department of Justice and determined the employee should be terminated.

Nelson has no control or say in such matters once legal takes over.

The Media has been consistent to date in failing to do proper research in its reporting. Get it right, Junior Journalists.

And reread the Canons of Journalism, the Ethos of your craft.

Re: “Coming Soon: Super Blood Blue Moon and Lunar Eclipse

You can't be serious, are you? This is astronomy not astrology and this article has nothing to do with religion, to imply a celestial object is aligned with the devil or darkness sounds medieval.

Re: “Coming Soon: Super Blood Blue Moon and Lunar Eclipse

The moon has no light and is the remnant of a planet destroyed in a collision with Earth or Venus over 4 billion years ago. It is in fact malevolent and part of the consciousness modern culture refers to as 'the devil' or 'satan'. Vedic astrologers, who have the cultural memory of the consciousnesses of stars and planets that the ancients used to worship as Gods under Hinduism, understand this, and characterize the moon as the two demons Rahu and Ketu. Every day our Sun, whose consciousness we now know as Jesus Christ, shines brightly all over the Earth, driving out the darkness and imbuing every living being on Earth with spiritual protection from the dark forces that would destroy us. We don't give much thought to this, because we take it so for granted. We need to revere the abundance of sunshine and natural protection from harm that we are given by the Sunshine every single day of our lives. What light we believe we see from the moon is all stolen Sunshine that simply bounces back to Earth because the moon is in the way. Let's thank Jesus for our wealth of daily Sunshine and not revere the moon and the coincidences of its illusions, it is aligned with darknesses like occult and witchcraft for a reason (those religions that draw on malevolent forces for personal gain, rather than praying to the Benevolent Christ and Father God for the good of All Humanity).
