Re: “School Exclusion Day

Unprotected Chilren? What about all of the adults in the schools? Who is checking their vaccine status? And just for the record most people are not anti-vax they are former-vax, usually because of suffering the injury of a child.

Re: “Wasted in Bend: Clothing in the Landfill

Note: the landfill is projected to close in 2029, not 2019. Please excuse the typo!

Re: “A New Representative for Bend

Cheri seems very level headed and hopefully she will use her own thoughts and conclusions to represent the people.

And here I thought the only things being created in America are apps and fake news. Glad to know something else is happening as well. :)

Re: “The Oregon Trail Blazers?

An R from Klamath Falls is into inclusivity? What's the punch line? Surely Werner has water rights to wrest from indigenous peoples.

Besides, Rip State doesn't have the same ring to it as Rip City.

Re: “Happenings at Bend Parks

Bike park construction was originally going to start in Fall 2018, now it is all the way back to Spring 2020? We should be building it this spring!

Re: “The Oregon Trail Blazers?

I think politicians should focus on actual improvements. This is a garbage item to waste our tax dollars on.

Re: “The Oregon Trail Blazers?

More inclusive? That's your reason? I am dead-set against the proposed change if that is your reason.

Re: “Measles in Deschutes County?

Hmmmm....So the Governor of Oregon has a stealth proposal coming down the pike...buried in the budget. And it could be using the measles issue as the motor to make a point. KTVZ or The Bulletin....has not published far as I searched their websites. The actual issue is whether it's MANDATORY or not. Which could throw out the window our RIGHT TO CHOOSE. 4th Amendment at risk.

"The Oregon Senate has recently taken up SB 526 requiring The Oregon Health Authority [to] study home visiting by licensed health care providers in the state [and] submit findings and recommendations for legislation to an interim committee of the Legislative Assembly by the end of the calendar year.

"And make no mistake: home visits, even by licensed medical personnel, would constitute a violation of family privacy if the visit is unwanted. Licensed medical practitioners are by law mandatory reporters; once they are inside your home they are a de facto investigative agent of the State. That may create an adversarial medical relationship and introduce a level of stress unhealthy for any family."

Re: “Living on Lava

"To geologists, 1,300 years is not a significant amount of time."

Actually, it's quite significant when one goes by what is observable in nature vs. what is taught in the university. For example, in just 20 years' time, I noted more than 15' of erosion of a basalt dike on both sides of Highway 99 at Siskiyou Summit. The granodiorite of the Mt. Ashland Pluton, as well as the various other granodioritic plutons of the Klamaths and Sierras at middle and high elevation decays very rapidly, with changes evident in less than ten years' time. The reason is freeze-thaw like that of concrete. What happens is that water gets into cracks and pores in the rock and then freezes. It produces ~30,000 psi and breaks the rock. In middle elevations, that often means several times per year. I've seen strong concrete become sand and gravel in the freeze-thaw testing tank after as little as 8 repetitions. The same happens to rock.

Re: “Protest of Chris Piper's Appointment to the City Council

It was a busy Wed. morning: Numerous people from this protest reconvened an hour later to join a crowd that had assembled to speak out against a proposed "Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance" at the Deschutes County Commissioners meeting. During public comment 20 people urged the Commissioners not to enact this law, which would allow the County Sheriff to refuse to enforce background checks and other features of the Oregon Firearms Safety Act. They cited endangerment of public safety (particularly to domestic violence victims). Many observed that the County would need to spend tens of thousands of dollars in public funds to defend this law against legal challenges.

Only one person testified in favor of this law.

Re: “Protest of Chris Piper's Appointment to the City Council

They will be under a microscope for the next two years. If they disregard our priorities and needs, then they will be history on Nov. 3, 2020. We showed the special interests last Nov. that they can't buy elections in Bend anymore.

Re: “Nurses Ratify a New Contract

Now St Charles needs to keep going: put an end to misplaced priorities and wasteful spending.
If you wonder why Bend loses so many fine health professionals who would love to live here, look no further than priorities and policies of St Charles board and executive management
