3. Congressman Walden’s Statement on Executive Order re: Waters of the U.S.

American flag2WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) issued the following statement on President Trump’s executive order regarding the Waters of the United States rule: “Today, the President took the first step to ditch this awful rule. Finally, we have a President who actually listens to rural Oregon communities.

“This is a big victory for farmers, ranchers, and property owners in rural Oregon and throughout the nation. The flawed WOTUS rule would have expanded federal authority over virtually any water in the nation, including canals, irrigation ditches, vernal pools, and stock ponds. I have long said that this blatant federal overreach would drastically increase uncertainty and threaten jobs and livelihoods throughout the West.”


4. The Willingness to Be Wrong

Do you know anyone who has a hard time admitting they were wrong? If so, they may be struggling with uncertain self-esteem.

No one enjoys being wrong or making a mistake, but in spite of what some folks would like you to believe, we all do it. In fact, the more venturesome you are and the less afraid of taking risks, the more likely you are to be wrong from time to time. But then what? How can you salvage your self-esteem when your pride has been shaken by a wrong decision?

Well, it’s not as hard as you might think. Try just simply admitting it. Say something like, “I made a mistake. Thank you for correcting me.” Or, “I was wrong about that. Next time, I’ll do better.” Even, “Oops – my bad” is better than trying to maintain the air of infallibility

You see, by proudly proclaiming yourself to be a normal, imperfect, fallible human being, you give others permission to do the same. Believe it or not, you also make yourself more loveable. After all, while we may respect each other for our strengths, it is often our human weaknesses that are most endearing. When you are able to openly confess a weakness without making a big deal about it, you are honored by your humility and your dignity is nourished by your honesty.

It is only those people whose self-esteem is shaky, underneath an exterior pose of perfection, who have trouble admitting that they were wrong.So keep in mind that doing the right thing is always more important than being right, and when you’ve made a mistake, the right thing to do is admit it. ~ The Pacific Institute
