OUR VIEW: Focus on fire safety measures

If Oregon residents were searching for a sign the summer fire season is here, they saw firsthand evidence last week in the central part of the state when a wildfire erupted in the Bend area. 

 

OUR VIEW: Union-Cove repeat is impressive

Winning one state title is amazing. Winning two or more in a row, however, is an even bigger accomplishment.

OUR VIEW: Keep eyes open for ‘big ideas’

Sometimes in little chance encounters big things happen.
