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

Re: “Bobcat Bludgeoning Raises Concerns

Bludgeoning of an animal is NOT euthanasia. Anyone that thinks so should open a dictionary or go back to school.

Why wasn’t ODFW called to trap and properly euthanize with injection or better yet relocate it to a wildlife sanctuary until it’s old enough to be released in the wild?

Re: “Bobcat Bludgeoning Raises Concerns

My husband and I spend 4 months each summer in Bend. I am horrified to learn a Bobcat kitten was bashed to death. We have an animal trail on the north side of our house and have been delighted to watch Bobcat Moms and their kittens walk by. The "standard" procedures must be changed!!!

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

"Verizon shill"? I'm someone concerned about the anti-science movement progressing in the public. You only prove my point concerning the irrational paranoia of the anti-cell tower group.

Re: “Recession Proof?

One thing not mentioned that I see a lot of is the number of people who work from home. I have met numerous people who have moved here with a portable job - facilitated by a computer and an internet connection. I remember seeing numbers on that and they are substantial. Some of those are high paying like six figures. I know that from being a landlord and processing applications. There is a guy across the street who all his clients are in Huston Texas and he doesn't even ski or mountain bike or anything like that. After just watching some documentaries on artificial intelligence I wonder how secure some of those jobs are though.

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

"Dr. Ganglia" (which is in quotes because I can find no record of any doctor by that name) created their account on November 18, 2019, just to comment on this article. Do I smell a Verizon shill?

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

Those are some awfully misleading statements, "Dr. Ganglia", if you are a real doctor. These concerns are most definitely of a scientific nature, and it is quite UN-scientific to attempt to shut down rational debate on the matter.

The article states that 110 scientific studies regarding were presented, and eventually narrowed to 36 studies which were sent by certified mail to Verizon's lawyer.

You clearly have not done your research, or you would understand why these parents are rightfully concerned.

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

The unscientific/conspiracy theorist mindset is getting out of control. Now the Source Weekly, under this author Laurel Brauns, is presenting/defending this point of view. These "concerned parents" are the same overly emotional, insensible people who believe the Earth is flat, vaccines cause autism, and now that cell phone towers cause cancer.

The American Cancer Society, along with a plethora of scientific papers, have demonstrated the safety of cell towers: ( As a person who earned a degree in physics, I can say that the Sun's UV light does far more skin damage than cell towers could ever possibly inflict. This article does not present the scientific voice on the issue; it presents the view point of scientifically uneducated soccer moms and their irrational paranoia regarding cell phone towers.

Would these parents ever dare tell a surgeon how to perform heart surgery? No, they would immediately understand their ignorance regarding open-heart surgery. Yet, when it comes to electromagnetic physics, biological physics, and electrical engineering, these "concerned parents" somehow feel justified to voice their uneducated opinion on the issue. The Source, this author, Bend, and the U.S. for that matter, all need to carefully analyse whether they support objective, scientific information or emotional, lazy, and insensible frames of mind.

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

I certainly understand the parents concerns about the cell tower but I think they would be the first to complain that during an emergency they won't be able to contact school officials! I think we all know what emergencies we are talking about in todays terms. As far as the physical harm that cell towers and cell phones present maybe they should not have cell phone "period"! And hopefully not their children having cell phones. Unfortunately, we can't have it both ways!

Re: “A Climate Action Plan Moves Forward

If Bend wants "clean power", it should support nuclear energy. The false alarmist fears about natural gas and oil being 'dirty' energy is a farce. Solar and wind will NOT become major suppliers of energy, because of the real science involved. They simply are NOT capable of 24/7 full power operation. Also, the lie about CO2 remaining in the atmosphere for several hundred years is outrageous. Of 37 major studies, of residence time, the UNIPCC picks the only one with more than 25 years. The average of the other 36 studies indicate under 10 years.
This is simply the largest scientific fraud ever. CO2 does NOT control climate. During an extended ice age 440 million years ago, the CO2 levels were 11-12 times higher than now, and when the Earth entered the very last ice age, the temperatures plummeted, but the CO2 levels remained at their highest levels for several thousand years.
These two simple facts prove that CO2 is NOT that giant, magical global temperature control knob the 'chicken little alarmists' want us sheeple to believe and buy into, so they can control and tax every aspect of our lives.

Re: “A Climate Action Plan Moves Forward

Great efforts. And 300 years down the road the world will thank us. Yet the reality is that climate reform isn’t the fastest way to results. Atmospheric CO2 never comes down by working on emissions and the IPCC knows this. The minimum residence time is at least over 300 years now. This means we have to wait more than 300 years for a change in emissions to take effect. Planting native trees and shrubs starts consuming CO2 within 6 months. We can easily plant 100 billion trees in the USA. Oregon needs to set aside state land so families can plant 2 trees per person per year. In ten years we will increase consumption of CO2 by 10 billion tons per year. Seems a little easier than creating a new city. But then again, lots of financial interests are banking on reform.

Re: “A Climate Action Plan Moves Forward

I hope the council steps up and approves the plan. We need to show leadership and take responsibility for our community, especially when we can't count on that coming from elsewhere.
