Re: “Parking Updates Go Into Effect

No problem. Plenty of other places to go and obviously downtown does not need my business.

Re: “Park Board to Vote Tuesday on Funding Mirror Pond Dredging

Maybe the Park Board could explain why they think MPS owns the land under the pond.

Bulletin July13, 2013: McKay land claim hard to prove
However, the story has proved difficult to substantiate the more people look into it. A search of Deschutes County Assessors records turned up no evidence that the McKay family owns or pays taxes on land under the Deschutes River. The Bend Park & Recreation District and the city of Bend have not obtained deeds or other documents to back up the McKay familys ownership claims.
The Bulletin asked AmeriTitle to prepare a title report on land under Mirror Pond. On Thursday, Chuck Sheffield, a vice president of AmeriTitle, said the company could not provide a clear record of ownership.

The McKay Trusts ownership of the land beneath Mirror Pond has been verified through a legal review of title research conducted by AmeriTitle in summer, 2013.

Re: “Living on Lava

A flood resulting from a dam failure is far too low on the list. There are many dams in Central Oregon built out of local cinders and rock. Liquefaction is a problem with these dams. Grout screens have been installed in Wickiup to mitigate this inherent weakness, but not all dams have been strengthened. A failure at Wickiup would be on par with the camp fire in terms of destruction of property and lives. Dam failures are not rare as there have been many within our lifetime caused by feeble attempts to control nature.

Re: “Drying Up?

It would be hard to separate the loss of aquifer water loss due to irrigation improvements from our drought conditions. We have both.

Re: “High Desert Herstory

Fully under-celebrated are the Kayak Moms here in Bend, who are bad-ass enough on their own, but still have the energy to shuttle the gang of dirt-bag wannabes from takeout the putin day after day for years. All this time, mostly, hiding the fears they share with their off-spring while they descend into the gorge below. That takes courage

Re: “Hated in the Nation

Knee-capping your opponent is more than a "poor choice", it demonstrates a void of the values necessary for life outside of jail. She should have been watching the Olympics from her cell.
