Wilderness areas protect wildness. If limiting their access achieves that, so be it.

Wilderness areas protect wildness. If limiting their access achieves that, so be it.

This month, officials from the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests announced their Final Decision in the Cascade Wilderness Strategies Project, aimed at addressing overuse around some of the most well-used trails in the area. Under the new plan, people will be required to obtain day-use permits at 19 of the busiest trailheads in the Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington and Three Sisters wilderness areas—including Tam McArthur Rim, Green Lakes, Todd Lake and Devils Lake/South Sister.

It's not about abortion Whether the government is trying to distract the public from what's going on at the border, the billions of dollars going towards war efforts, gun control, etc. — the laws being passed regarding women's reproductive rights are extremely alarming.

Ariel Méndez for Bend Metro Park & Recreation District Director, Pos. 1

Two Bend Park and Recreation board spots are open this election, with Brady Fuller vacating Position 1 and Ellen Grover vacating Position 2. In a city with so many changes and so many needs happening all at once, it's unfortunate that the Position 2 race is unopposed.

Don Hedrick for Sisters School District 6, Director, Position 4

Don Hedrick, running for another term on the Sisters School Board, has already served eight years on the board, including four as chair. After taking two years off, he says he missed serving and wants another chance.

Editorial

Shimiko Montgomery for Administrative School District No. 1 Director, Zone 3 (Bend-La Pine Schools)

It's a high bar to unseat an incumbent in any race. In this one, however, Shimiko Montgomery simply has more knowledge and on-the-ground experience in schools, making her a candidate who can rise to the bar.

Letters to the Editor

Jim Clinton For Central Oregon Community College Director, Zone 5

Unlike the two other races for the Central Oregon Community College board, Zone 5 has two candidates. One of them, John F. Short, says he decided to run, at least in part, so there would be more than one candidate.

Vote Caroline Skidmore for Administrative School District No. 1, Director, Zone 1 (Bend-La Pine School Board)

Like the race for the Zone 6 At Large position, the Zone 1 race for the Bend-La Pine School Board has three capable candidates who would all be strong advocates for schools, students, teachers and administrators in the district.

GUEST OPINION Public Health or Pharma Profits? Oregon House Bill 3063 would remove religious and philosophical exemptions for vaccines in children and force families who do not comply with the Oregon Health Authority's schedule to remove children from childcare and school (public or private).

Letters to the Editor

Liz Goodrich for Redmond School District 2J Director, Pos. 5

Redmond's school-age population isn't growing as rapidly as Bend's—but it is steadily climbing, and the city's demographics are changing with it. Redmond's school kids deserve a board that looks to the future, acknowledges the needs and desires of students, and also deeply understands education.

Editorial

Richard Asadoorian for Administrative School District No. 1, Zone 6 At Large (Bend-La Pine School Board)

Whatever the outcome of this race, voters can rest assured that whoever wins, they'll have a qualified, experienced educator taking the reins. Each of the three candidates is a former educator with extensive experience working in schools.

Humans caused—and then fixed—a climate threat under a Republican president. We can do it again

Each year, we dedicate the issue that falls on Earth Day to examining issues around sustainability and the environment. The notion of sustainability is often thought of as a realm only visited by progressives—environmentalists waving a partisan banner in favor of going green for going green's sake.
