MY VOICE: The impact of abuse prevention

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Nothing in my abuse prevention work prepared me for the letter a Healthy Families client sent us. It immediately moved me to tears, and is a letter every social work professional longs to receive.

OUR VIEW: Oregon deserved better

We’ve already devoted time in this space and on this page to the debacle that is the state’s online health exchange network.

Yet, the news Friday that Oregon officials were turning over the beleaguered system to the federal government, in what can only be seen as an admission of abject failure, punctuates the discouraging aspects of the entire episode.


OUR VIEW: Continue pursuing tourists

When it comes to major tourist attractions, Oregon has them in abundance. 



OUR VIEW: Find one way to give back

The Boy Scouts have a motto: Do your best to be prepared for service. Each of us finds ourselves in different life situations. Some of us in these recessionary times are struggling to survive and thrive. Others of us find it easier going getting beyond the struggle to make ends meet.


Oregon strong: State needs its own holiday

Monday, friend Tom will be in Boston helping the Commonwealth of Massachusetts celebrate its very own holiday, Patriots Day, by running until he is a bundle of wet rags.
Yes, Tom is running the marathon. It’s 26.2 miles of misery. Or if you’re our age, 56, insanity. This year’s misery is particularly poignant for Tom and 35,999 of his closest marathon-running friends, for it is the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 250 others.

MY VOICE: Crowdfunding can bolster community

As executive director of the Northeast Oregon Economic Development District, I am constantly on the lookout for ways to support our region’s entrepreneurs and owners of existing businesses. Over the last few years, a grassroots funding platform has gained popularity, and I’m excited to introduce it to those of you who have never heard of “crowdfunding.”

OUR VIEW: Ensuring the safety of the grid

We live in a modern, high-tech society that seems faster all the time. Yet, our link to all the iPads and computers and even cellphones depends upon one thing — power.

When the power goes out a seemingly modern, 21st century culture is transported — literally in moments — into the 19th century.
