What defines Grande Ronde Valley is being threatened

By Tom Dimond April 19, 2010 03:00 pm
I came to the Grande Ronde Valley in 1971 to teach at Eastern Oregon State College as it was known then, now called Eastern Oregon University. The absence of posted properties in this area and lack of signs that said “Keep Out” or “No Trespassing” stood out vividly to me. People respected the property rights of others and actually helped landowners keep an eye on their properties. Everyone shared the responsibility of stewardship of the land whether they owned it or not. Residents viewed Northeast Oregon as a community of like-minded caretakers who helped each other and protected the land.


New industry for 21st century

By Larry Knowles April 14, 2010 01:35 pm

What’s all this “not in my backyard’’ syndrome? Does Union County want to be part of the solution to weaning ourselves off oil and its derivatives, or part of the problem?

The wind is a resource, waiting to be utilized. True, it doesn’t provide the jobs the timber industry does (or used to) or have the profile of that industry, but wind energy is going to be around longer. Who can predict what wind farms and their support systems will morph into? We need jobs and consistent tax revenue in this area. Why look a gift horse in the face and say no?
