5. A Hands-on Education By Senator Bill Hansell

There are a handful of State Senators who have a University in their senate district, and I am pleased to be one of them.  Eastern Oregon University is one of my top priorities. So, when Professor Jeff Dense approached me several years ago about bringing a class to Salem for a hands-on learning experience, I jumped at the chance.

We just completed what I believe to be the fifth EOU class to spend a day and a half in the Capitol.  This year’s class, though smaller, was very engaged and interactive.  I wish I would have had this kind of opportunity when I was in college, and I applaud the work of Professor Dense to make it happen.

Students came for “State Legislature 101”, and my office set up the schedule and meetings. They sat with Senators at their desks on the Senate floor during a Session and they observed the process of laws being made, up close and first hand. Sometimes it is like making sausage (not very appetizing) but usually not.

In addition, students met with Senate leaders of both parties, including a lively discussion with Senate President Peter Courtney. The class sat in on hearings and observed the Joint-Ways and Means committees working.

I spent time with the students walking them through step by step how a bill begins, moves through the legislative process, and becomes law.  I used a real example which this year was the Roadkill Bill I sponsored in 2017.  At every juncture we answered questions and encouraged interaction not only with me, but with all the legislators they met.

My office also scheduled time for the class to go to the House of Representatives side, where they spent time with Representative Greg Barreto.  There are a few differences in the two Chambers rules.

My Legislative Director Evan Bryan, a EOU grad and former EOU Student Body President, was the organizer of this year’s EOU class visit.  I am particularly pleased, because Evan was one of the first students to come to Salem for this class.

President Courtney referred to the Senate Chamber during his presentation as a “classroom.” I couldn’t agree more. As lawmakers, we educate each other about our districts and values. The students saw how the process can work best when lawmakers understand how their positions on issues or votes will impact the entire state.

I look forward to continuing to host a class from Eastern. This is such a valuable learning opportunity and I have no doubt that these classes contain future leaders of our state. It is important that we work to educate the leaders of tomorrow and foster the importance of civic engagement.

I have long felt that apathy is unhealthy for a democracy. Citizen engagement is critical for the legislative process to succeed at all levels of government. By listening to one another and being open to differing views, we can build a stronger Oregon. I think this class saw how effective communication and a thoughtful approach can ultimately bring people together.

State Senator Bill Hansell (R-Athena) represents District 29 in the Oregon State Senate. The district includes La Grande which is the home of Eastern Oregon University. Go Mountaineers!

Office and Vault Going In Courthouse Basement

Work on the basement of the courthouse is just about finished as far as the excavation is concerned and the sewer ditch has been dug across the court house lot in addition to the hole under the building.

The basement will be smaller than the court house as several feet of earth was left inside of the foundation walls on each side of the house.  A central heating plant will be installed soon using one of the chimneys now in the building and the front entrance will be changed so that a stairway to the basement can be put in.  It is probable that an office room will be put in the basement and perhaps another will be made in the hall which now leads to the back entrance.

7. Gain a Global Perspective, Host a Foreign Exchange Student

ASSE Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Asia. These personable and academically select exchange students speak English, are bright, curious, and eager to learn about this country through living as part of a family for an academic year and attending high school. Your support of these students reinforces the United States’ commitment to education and opportunity throughout the world.

ASSE is currently seeking host families for these well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Mongolia, and South Korea. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, the students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.

The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year. Each ASSE student is fully insured, brings his or her own personal spending money and expects to bear his or her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles. At the same time the student will be teaching their newly adopted host family about their own culture and language.

If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please contact us today for more information, call (800) 733-2773, go online at www.ASSEhosts.com or email asseusawest@asse.com

Founded by the Swedish National Department of Education, ASSE International (formerly American Scandinavian Student Exchange) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, public benefit organization. ASSE is officially designated as an exchange visitor program by the United States Department of State and cooperates with the Canadian Provincial Ministries of Education.

1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

church.family1Grow in Wisdom

Not like the east coast last week, Sherman County is experiencing its own cold weather this week. With that, there is an admonition for outdoor activities, “Stay Warm Stay Safe.” Little will cause great harm more consistently than going out without the proper clothing and placing yourself in unsafe circumstances.

“Stay Safe Stay Warm” are simple but profound words of wisdom for being outside. Grasping this piece of wisdom makes sense. We know in or hearts and our minds that this is a wise thing to do, and to disregard it is foolishness. The book of Proverbs is classified as one of the wisdom books of the Bible, and from its beginning Proverbs contains one brief statement after another of wise things for us to observe. It begins like this: “(1) The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: (2) To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, (3) to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; (4) to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth— (5) Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, (6) to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. (7) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:1–7, ESV)

It’s true that fools despise wisdom and instruction. I don’t think many of us would question that, but what about how we regard the ultimate source of all wisdom. God is that source, and He has revealed Himself to us through His Word. When you next prepare to step out into the cold, and you pause to dress properly, thank Him for the simple wisdom. And when you next sit down for some quiet rest take the time to open His Word, listen to His leading and learn from Him.

Joe Burgess
Pastor, First Baptist Church Grass Valley
