  • We're Not Wannabee Drill Sergeants

    W. (Wilderness) T. (Therapy) F. (Friend)! In reference to last week's WTF? article, "Hoods In The Woods," I would like to inform our community on a few things. I am a past "wannabee drill sergeant" having worked for 2-plus years at a Wilderness Therapy Program. I take offense to being called this slanderous term. No, we are not crazy drill sergeants. We are real people who just so happen to care about our youth. We hope to lead students on the journey of self-discovery. We work to build stronger family units in a time when many are falling apart. My "wannabee drill sergeant" friends and I find Central Oregon to be an amazing place to help teens discover all these things.

    Paddlers will be out in force tonight as the Park District hosts an open house comment period on its proposed whitewater play area/spillway redesign at Colorado Avenue. The long overdue project is still in the planning phases and citizens still have an opportunity to shape the final product, but the project already incorporates many important recreational and safety elements that the entire community should get behind, including safe passage for floaters, a whitewater play area and fish passage through an open, free-flowing channel, as well as protection of existing gravel and spawning beds below the dam.

    Kari Chisholm of the BlueOregon blog says there’s been speculation about whether Bill Bradbury’s multiple sclerosis will make people question whether he’s capable of handling the demands of the governorship. “Over the last year, many people have wondered aloud - here on BlueOregon, and in hushed tones in person - whether Bill Bradbury's health will be an insurmountable obstacle to his gubernatorial ambitions,” Chisholm writes.
