NEOEDD looking for help with prioritizing CEDS results

The updates for the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy are in, and Northeast Oregon Economic Development District needs help to prioritize them.

The district is asking interested indivudals to take their survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/25KW2PR.

The CEDS gives public and private entities an opportunity to consider an inventory of major projects that could benefit the region as a whole, and to prioritize them in a formal way. The CEDS are useful for local government and nonprofits when considering funding and logistics.

The CEDS are a communications tool and not a funding mechanism itself. However, it helps NEOEDD staff refer potential funding sources to pending projects. NEOEDD shares the CEDS with federal funding agencies and state and federal legislators. It is available online for private foundations or others to consult when researching potential projects. The State of Oregon also uses it to inform its regional solutions team projects.

The deadline for taking the survey is Friday.

OSU’s food preservation and safety hotline opens July 14

Canning and preserving food is a time-honored Oregon tradition. Oregon State University offers a hotline to do it safely.

The Oregon State University Extension Service’s food preservation and safety hotline helps Oregonians safely can and preserve their garden’s abundance again this summer.

The hotline is a useful resource for food safety information even in the Internet age, said Nellie Oehler, a faculty member with the OSU Extension Service’s Family and Community Health program and Master Food Preserver coordinator in Lane County.

“There’s a lot of misinformation online and you have to know the right websites to get accurate information or you could literally kill yourself if you use techniques that are not safe,” Oehler said. “People call us to get reliable information from a real person. The Lane and Douglas County Master Food Preservers who answer the calls have good training and years of experience canning and preserving food.”

For more information, go to the OSU Extension website on food preservation at http://bit.ly/YqgsFE. OSU Extension’s Ask an Expert service also takes online questions about food preservation.

The toll-free hotline at 1-800-354-7319 is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 14 to Oct. 17.
