Re: “The Golden Dumpster: Inside Bend's freegan movement

I would be a little hesitate eating food that was near or in a dumpster. However, if the alternative is to starve than you do what you have to do. If I would have to resort to this, I would rather look through roll off dumpsters in my local area to find things to sell on Ebay and Facebook Market Place and use the money to buy safe food. Just my opinion mind you.

Re: “Is the county applying a morality test to land-use decisions?

Really, Bend commissioners? Could you employees of the local citizenry do some independent research and reading of your own? Put down your glass / bottle of Pinot and actually look at more than one source of scientific, peer reviewed research on cannabis. As a 62 year old grandmother and masters prepared addiction counselor, I am far more concerned by the public health ramifications of alcohol and tobacco use (both heavily subsidized by our government) than I am the judicious and regulated offering of cannabis products to adults. Lets not turn the study of this issue into yet another example of the head-in-the-sand fake news town criers already too prevalent in our country.

Re: “Bucket List: Tour with Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship and the Commodores

Polly, you may not find the term demeaning and that's fine. But you don't represent everyone who suffers from this illness or any other disability. I guarantee you that some do find it offensive and their opinions are certainly as valid as yours. --Michael Funke

Re: “Bucket List: Tour with Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship and the Commodores

I don't think the word "schizoclectic" demeans anyone. I'm bipolar, manic depressive, and people use those words frequently to describe things (or emotions) that vary from extreme to extreme. I fail to see how that somehow insults me, and I fail to see how "schizoclectic" harms those with schizophrenia.

The root of "schizo" is "skei" and it means to cut, separate, divide, part, split. Schizophrenics do not have a monopoly on using "skei" or "schizo" in language.

Re: “Bucket List: Tour with Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship and the Commodores

As a fellow community radio volunteer here in Central Oregon I appreciate the eclectic mix of music this station offers. But, I find the term "schizoclectic" to be offensive and demeaning to people who suffer from schizophrenia. What is so hip about using language that mocks people with illnesses, mental disorders, and disabilities? Full disclosure: I am a volunteer at KPOV, where we value "healthy individuals and community" (http://kpov.org/mission-and-history). --Michael Funke

Re: “This Modern World

America envies Oregon for we have the brainy Gov. Brown who wants to tax rural Oregon silly so she can virtue-signal via a version of California's unpopular and wholly ineffective cap-and-trade while China and India (both exempted from the Paris climate accords) add a coal plant per week. Real positive effect on the world's emissions? Zero, especially when compared to the positive effect of increased natural gas usage. What's next, a solar-powered bullet train between Portland and Bend funded with $1,000 annual taxes on pickup trucks? Wind-powered detention camps at Portland State for any new Oregonians expressing conservative ideas? Now, that's BRAIINNNSSSS! Who'd have thought we'd find such a smart elistist career bureaucrat like Kate Brown to Californicate Oregon?

Re: “Legislating Morality Through Land Use

We need more than 3 county commissioners! When 2 people can ramrod an issue, there needs to be a little more balance. Five commissioners would be very helpful with staggered terms. Institutional memory can be affected negatively when 2 commissioners come to serve with very little time on the board.

Re: “Legislating Morality Through Land Use

Thank you Jeremy for exposing the biased decisions made by two of Deschutes Countys commissioners. The citizens of Deschutes County need to be aware of the prejudice on display. Wont take too many more of these kinds of decisions to bring the State Land Use Board into the county to relieve the current administration.

It's not obstruction of anything to uncover the crime that's been committed against you.

Re: “This Modern World—week of May 30

Remarkable. Your future is the same scenario that began 30 months ago, but with Ds for Rs and vice-versa. How prescient. Hang around for the results of the AG investigations into how the 2016 version all began, read the indictments sure to come, and perhaps you will be able to illustrate how close to political (inverse) reality is satire.

Re: “An Alt CBD

Its all BS. These ppl are probably mixing some chinese isolate with citrus terpenes and calling it evergreen bark cbd. I don't believe it cause the patent would be all over the place by now and how come some asians didn't discover the cbd in this evergreen tree. They've been studying there own backyard for centuries. Hell even the jews have been all over the world testing other plants for cbd and they didn't discover this other natural source. Nope not a chance and the first place this game changing source ends up in is some fancy overpriced chocolates that started off being laced with thc in oregon, lmao smh.
