“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” —Thomas Jefferson (1820)

2. Sherman County 4-H Club News Reports: Cooking & Beef

The Tiny Teaspoons 4-H cooking club met on May 19th at 4:00pm at Liz’s house. Attending were Addie, Zach, Savannah, Tierra, Madison and Claire. Excused absences were Pyeper. Pledge of Allegiance was led by Madison and the 4-H Pledge led by Addie. During the meeting we made Dutch Baby’s, Ebelskivers and banana sour cream pancakes with berries. Our leader explained where the recipes were from and showed us on a map where the Netherlands was located. She also told us what pans we will be using. We learned how to separate eggs into yoke and whites. How to fold in whipped egg whites into a batter and also how using fruit helps reduce the amount of sugar in recipes without losing the great taste.  We all got to flip our own pancakes and Ebelskivers. Thank you to Cindie Brown and the Blaggs for letting us borrow their Ebelskiver pans. We all had a great time making these three fun recipes. Our next meeting will be French Baking Day on June 30th. Meeting was adjourned at 6:00pm. Signed Savannah and Addie news reporters.

4. EDITORIAL. Why Posterity Matters. Why The Times-Journal Matters

pencil.sharpA box ad in The Times-Journal this week caught our attention! “Posterity matters! That’s why The Times-Journal has been published every week for the past 132 years. You can participate in this grand tradition by subscribing. Call us – 541-384-2421.”

Publishers Mac and Jan Stinchfield make it clear that they value our history and our present as The Times-Journal [T-J] serves Gilliam, Wheeler and Sherman counties.

Indeed, posterity matters. Our local history, on record in the newspaper, matters for future generations.

We support and applaud The Times-Journal commitment the local news and conversations taking place in the communities in our three counties.

For our posterity, our local history forms a foundation upon which to form ideas and perspective about the present, and helps us achieve skills in critical and analytical thinking that accounts for different perspectives.

Our local history gives us insight into specific current issues, with examples of how our previous generations dealt with political, economic and social crises and change.

We believe that it is in Sherman County’s collective short- and long-term best interest for its people to support the T-J by subscribing and by contributing local news.

We believe it is our civic duty to be well-informed about a wide-range of local issues and events of mutual interest and concern.

We believe it is our civic duty to support the small businesses in our tri-county neighborhood, including the local newspapers.

These beliefs lead us to suggest that Sherman County information now published in local newsletters might, instead, be published in the T-J. Win-Win. Sherman County would support the T-J and avoid tax-payer funded newsletters that compete with private enterprise.

Weekly we anticipate The Times-Journal for its ideas, inspiration, ads and news of inter-related families and businesses. Print news is one media we can all read. Published every Thursday, subscription rates are $35/year in Gilliam, Wheeler and Sherman counties; $45/year elsewhere in the U.S. It’s available online. Contact The Times-Journal, P.O. Box 746, Condon, OR 97823-0746.


5. Oregon’s Bounty: Use a Smartphone to Find Farm Stands, U-Pick Fields, On-Farm Events

Use a smartphone to easily find farm stands, u-pick fields, on-farm events with Oregon’s Bounty at www.oregonfb.org

Strawberries, asparagus, squash, and salad greens — not to mention bedding plants, flowering baskets, and fresh-cut flowers — are just a few favorites of spring’s agricultural bounty in Oregon. But if you want to venture out into the country, where can you buy directly from the source?

“Everyone knows where their local farmers market is. But what about roadside farm stands, u-pick fields, and on-farm events out in rural areas? That’s where Oregon’s Bounty comes in,” said Anne Marie Moss, OFB Communications Director.

Oregon’s Bounty at www.oregonfb.org is a searchable directory of nearly 300 family farms and ranches that sell food and foliage directly to the public.

Oregon’s Bounty allows visitors to do keyword searches for specific agriculture products — such as berries, cauliflower, honey, or eggs — and/or search for farms within a specific region of the state. Visitors can also do a keyword search for “u-pick” or “events” to find farms that offer those activities.

“Oregonians love farm-fresh food. Thanks to the diversity of agriculture in this great state, we can buy an enormous variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, flowers, foliage, meat, and nuts directly from the families who grew it,” said Moss. “Each of the farms listed in Oregon’s Bounty are owned and operated by Farm Bureau members who are proud to share what they’ve raised with the public,” said Moss. “Spring is a great time to take a trip into the beautiful countryside and experience Oregon agriculture firsthand.”


6. Congressman Walden: Support for the 2018 Farm Bill

American flag2Across rural Oregon, farms and ranches play an important role in our local economies. Unfortunately, poor commodity prices, drought and other challenges have taken a toll. In fact, nationally over the last five years there has been a 52 percent decline in America’s farm economy. As much as ever before, the farm bill programs provide an important safety net to get farmers through tough times. That’s why last week I supported the 2018 Farm Bill.  

A key piece of this safety net is robust crop insurance. In meetings with wheat growers and others across our district I heard one thing loud and clear – crop insurance is a vital risk management tool for farmers, and it works well. The House Farm Bill protects crop insurance. This legislation also extends and strengthens the Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage programs that add an extra layer to the safety net. 

With over 220 crops raised in Oregon, research is an important piece to the continued success of agriculture in our state. This legislation extends important programs like the Specialty Crop Block Grants and Specialty Crop Research Initiative, which help fund research into pests and diseases, such as zebra chip in potatoes and iris yellow spot virus in onions. Further, this bill streamlines land grant and other research funding programs to ensure that researchers are maximizing the time spent on research, not paperwork. 

When droughts and wildfires strike, destroying pastures and rangeland, this bill ensures that our livestock producers continue to have access to important disaster relief programs. In recent years, ranchers have used the Livestock Forage Program, the Livestock Indemnity Program and the Emergency Assistance for Livestock Program, often referred to as ELAP, to help blunt the costs of feed and lost livestock. 

Finally, trade continues to be very important to the viability of Oregon agriculture. With over 80 percent of our wheat going abroad, along with numerous other crops and livestock, maintaining our markets and developing new ones is crucial. This legislation continues funding for market access and market development programs that help make that happen. 

The current farm bill, and these important programs, expires at the end of September. Congress needs to redouble our efforts to get it passed in the House and the Senate before then.

To stay up to date on these efforts, I encourage you to sign up for my eNewsletters by going to mwebsite here: https://walden.house.gov/contact-greg/newsletter-subscription.

7. From the Desk of Sen. Bill Hansell: The Governor’s Special Session

Oregon.Flat.poleWe just concluded the May Legislative Days, which included an Emergency Legislative Session called by Governor Brown.  I was asked by the La Grande Observer to write a column for their newspaper, which I did.  In it I explained my understanding of the Special Session, which many have called political theater.  The article has been published in the Observer and you can read a copy here: Look toward legislation: Legislators become actors in Governor’s special session play. http://www.lagrandeobserver.com/opinion/6260260-151/look-toward-legislation-legislators-become-actors-in-governors

I was pleased to take a couple of groups of students from the District on the floor of the Senate this past week.  We heard that fourth graders from Union Elementary might be in the Capitol, and sure enough we found them on a tour.  I might have hijacked the tour when I offered to take them on the Senate floor.  The students were very attentive, and it was a special time.  For the past few years I wanted to give students a memento when they visit the Capitol.  I had some 6 inch rulers made and this was the first class I was able to give them to. 

When I went back to my motel room that evening, I was told there was a baseball team from NE Oregon staying there.  I figured that had to be from my part of the state, and it was.  The coaches were sitting at a table, and I introduced myself.  They were the Wallowa Valley Baseball team in Salem for the State playoffs.  I offered to do a tour for the team the next day, and they had time to do it.  One of the members was Daniel Delancey, whom some might remember from my Facebook post a month or so back.  I had contracted with him to make me an Oregon Duck plaque.  Daniel was able to see it when the team visited my office.  In addition they won their game that night, and are advancing through the bracket.

Finally, a special treat for me happened in the Workforce Committee hearing.  My son Bill, who is the Youth Development Policy Analyst for the Oregon Youth Development Council, testified before the Senate Workforce Committee, on which I serve as a member.  It was a real treat seeing him testify before my committee and, as it was also his birthday he said that “if it were not for Senator Hansell, I would not be testifying today.”  This caused smiles and laughter to fill the Workforce Committee room.  

Thank you for the opportunity to serve and represent you in the Oregon Senate.  

Sincerely,

Bill Hansell
