Weary and wary...Residents in the John Day Valley have been living with fire for more than a month; smoke, loss, and fear have all affected the community, making "normal" seem unachievable. Fall rains will eventually extinguish the interior fire within the Canyon Creek Complex Fire, but in the meantime some residents within the fire perimeter are working with the local Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) Unit in John Day to remove hazards and clean-up fire damaged vegetation. This is the first step for these landowners to move toward their new "normal." Fire may be used to burn debris piles from these activities. Smoke and flames may be visible from these fires, however the public should not be concerned as piles are well within the black perimeter and have no chance for escape. ODF personnel is working closely with landowners to ensure there is no risk of fire growth. ODF's Central Oregon District remains in fire season with a regulated closure in effect. Open fires, including debris burns, warming and campfires are allowed by permit only. Permits will only be issued inside the Canyon Creek Complex Fire perimeter until there is widespread moisture in the area, and regulate ...

The "smart cards" look similar to your old credit cards but now have a small metallic chip on the front. PORTLAND, Ore. – If you use credit cards, change is coming for how you pay for things. Banks have been sending out the new chip-enabled credit cards. The new cards – or “smart cards” as they are called – have microchips embedded on the front of the cards. Think of the chips as mini computers. Credit card companies say the new technology holds your payment data and is more secure than your magnetic-striped card. Chip-enabled cards aren’t new. They’ve been around for 20 years and are common in many countries in the world. The new cards do pose some problems. They are more expensive to produce and retailers will be on the hook for fraud. Credit card companies say if a business doesn’t upgrade to a chip reader after Oct. 1, they will need to reimburse the customer. Small business owner Glynis Olson says she’s not in favor of the new chip. “I don’t like to be tracked that way,” Olson said. “I think making us be responsible and not having the credit card company bear the responsibility is ridiculous!” Olson operates Bang Fingernails on N.E. Sandy Boulevard. ...

New revelations that a chemist at an Oregon state forensics lab appears to have tampered with drug evidence have led the state’s governor to launch an investigation. The work of another forensic chemist in the same state is also being examined with authorities alleging that he overstated the strength of evidence in criminal cases. The questions raised about these forensic chemists cast doubt on the integrity of more than a thousand criminal cases in Oregon. On 18 September, the Oregon State Police (OSP) announced it was investigating a forensic scientist, Nika Larsen, working at its Bend Crime Laboratory. She allegedly altered drug evidence. After Larsen came under suspicion in August, she was placed on administrative leave. ‘The evidence shows that she would take drugs and other items from the samples she was testing and replace them with over-the-counter drugs,’ says John Hummel, the district attorney (DA) for Deschutes County, Oregon. Larsen analysed evidence in around 1500 criminal cases, 502 of which were in her jurisdiction, Hummel notes. ‘We will pull out the convictions and assess whether her analysis of the evidence impacted the results,’ he states. ‘If we think i ...

When Jay and I created this blog in January 2010, we created a sort of ‘blog bucket list.’ The items on the list were reasonable we felt, including seeing marijuana legalized across America, and specifically Oregon. The United States legalization item of course is still on the list, but we were able to scratch off the Oregon item last November. This week we get to cross off another item, as we are both going to be able to go into a storefront on Thursday October 1st and make our first recreational marijuana purchase in Oregon. We have done it in Washington and Colorado, but since we were born and raised in Oregon, this week’s legal purchase will mean so much more. Recreational marijuana sales will be limited in Oregon at first. People can only purchase flower (no edibles, topicals, dabs, etc.), clones, and seeds. Every other form of marijuana will have to wait until 2016 to be sold for recreational purposes until the state can get more rules in place. Flower is fairly straight forward to regulate, but edibles and other products have to have packaging rules, dosage rules, and other rules in place before sales can begin of those products. Where do Oregon TWB readers plan on mak ...

Starting October 1, adults in Oregon will be able to walk into a medical marijuana dispensary and buy pot for recreational use. But not in dozens of communities across the state, where local officials have banned such sales. Across the street from a KFC in La Grande, Oregon, you can buy marijuana -- if you know where to look. "There's no marijuana leaves, there's no any of that. We just have an open sign and a green cross in the window,” said Rona Lindsey, the owner of Highway 30 Cannabis. The medical marijuana dispensary has been open just over a year. And despite the low-key storefront, she says business is brisk. It’s a victory of sorts for Lindsey, who was arrested along with her husband on drug charges in 2006 after police raided their home. All of those charges were dropped. Lindsey says the fact that the city allowed her to open a dispensary is a sign that her name was finally cleared. Still, she said she could reach even more customers if given the chance. "We get probably 40 phone calls a day and I don't know how many people walking in a day asking if they can come in and buy recreational,” Lindsey said.

Even though the calendar says summer has passed, residents of Linn and Benton counties are reminded that the ban on backyard debris burning that began June 15 remains in effect until further notice. The annual burn ban continues with the provision "until further notice" due to the current fire danger. Rain received so far this month has had no enduring effect on wildfire risk. "Oregon has endured a significant wildfire season. Forest fuel conditions are still tinder dry and will need a prolonged wetting rain event to recover," said Albany Fire Department Chief John Bradner. Rural fire agencies and the Oregon Department of Forestry have the authority to enforce and regulate the burn ban. Under Oregon Revised Statute Chapter 477, the department may issue citations for violation of the burning restrictions. For more information on the open burning restrictions as well as advice on safe debris disposal, contact the nearest Department of Forestry office or the local fire department. ...

Oregon Treasurer, and Portland mayoral candidate, Ted Wheeler recently participated in a cannabis round table discussion in Portland, Oregon. I was fortunate to be invited to the event, but unfortunate enough that I couldn’t attend due to work (have to pay those bills!). Hardworking activist Michael Bachara was there, and was able to capture some video and was even kind enough to post a transcript of the video on YouTube. Below is the transcript, followed by the video of what Ted Wheeler said at the event: There’s a number of ways that the Mayor of Portland could lead in Cannabis Policy. First of all, let’s acknowledge that this is a legal and regulated industry. Some of the issues I’d like to see resolved include banking. Right now, the cannabis industry does not have access to a legal banking framework. That means it’s a high volume cash industry. That creates some public safety issues. It certainly makes it more difficult for the industry to be regulated the way people expect the industry to be regulated and frankly it makes it a very difficult proposition for those in the cannabis industry whether they’re growers or whether they’re suppliers or whether they’re at the reta ...

Recreational marijuana use is legal in Oregon, but that hasn’t stopped the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) from engaging in an eradication program costing American taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. In 2014 alone, the agency spent $960,000 to remove 16,067 pot plants in the state of Oregon, where the drug was made legal in 2012. If you do the division, the price tag comes to almost exactly $60 dollars per plant destroyed. The number appears even more startling when considering the average nationwide per-plant-destruction cost is $4.20, the Washington Post reported Thursday. Much of this money goes towards funding helicopters that scout out marijuana farms from the sky, as well as having officers on foot uproot the plants that are spotted. Overtime pay alone cost taxpayers about $275,000 last year. This apparent paradox between legality and crackdowns exists because, while marijuana is legal at the state level, it remains criminalized federally and the DEA is part of the federal government. The agency defends its activities on the grounds that much of the pot grown in Oregon is, they say, sold in parts of the country where pot is still illegal. However, ...

The data focuses on “lifeline” routes, or routes deemed critical to emergency services and necessary for “rapid economic recovery after a disaster." The report focuses only on bridges operated by ODOT, and doesn't include nearly 4,000 county or city controlled bridges. Of 1,232 lifeline structures ODOT identified, 713 bridges are considered seismically vulnerable or potentially seismically vulnerable. That's nearly 60 percent of state-identified lifeline bridges likely to collapse or be potentially taken out of use after a quake. The criteria used to evaluate bridges includes age of the bridge, type of construction, and whether seismic retrofits had been completed.
