“If by the liberty of the press were understood merely the liberty of discussing the propriety of public measures and political opinions, let us have as much of it as you please: But if it means the liberty of affronting, calumniating and defaming one another, I, for my part, own myself willing to part with my share of it.” —Benjamin Franklin (1789)

4. Historic Land Use Bill passes Oregon Senate

Oregon.Flat.poleBy Frontier Advocates

In a historic action the Oregon Senate passed out SB 2 on a vote of 28-2. The bill authorizes 10 eastern Oregon Counties including Sherman, Gilliam and Wheeler to designate up to 50 acres of land outside the urban growth boundaries for industrial development. The decision to make the designation would be up to each county. The bill was carried on the floor by Senate President Courtney, who was a sponsor. He stated that this was the first time in 45 years that any flexibility has been created in Oregon’s land use system. It was made possible by years of work by significant stakeholders including: Farm Bureau, 1000 Friends of Oregon, Association of Oregon Counties and League of Oregon Cities. Senator Arnie Roblan of Coos Bay spoke in favor of the bill said that in his experience as a high school principal, students who had some hope for for success were more likely to graduate and that this bill while not a guarantee, provided hope for those counties. Senators Hansell and Bentz who represent all the affected counties said that this measure would expedite any economic opportunities that might come to those counties.

The bill https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2019R1/Downloads/MeasureDocument/SB2/A-Engrossed now goes to the house for hearings and action. If passed there it is expected that the governor would approve and sign into law.

5. Teachers: Designing High Impact Field Experiences Using ELA Performance Tasks, March 16

Middle school English Language Arts and Science teachers are invited to participate in this workshop at the Bonneville Lock & Dam, starting on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. Participants will learn more about the dam and its placement, history, benefits, and challenges. PEI FieldSTEM Coordinator Chad Mullen, Natural Resource Specialist Robin Norris, and Park Ranger Lesley McClintock will teach participants how to use a site to create high-impact field experiences for students.

March 16 from 9 to 3:30

Workshop participants will:

  • Explore and experience two English Language Arts performance tasks on the topics of “hydropower” and “renewable vs. non-renewable energy”
  • Understand how they can use these powerful teaching tools to highlight assets at the dam to facilitate meaningful field experiences and to deepen student learning
  • Tour many locations at the dam site including the fish ladder viewing area, the hydropower generators, hydropower powerhouse, and more

6. A path forward on climate change by Representative Greg Walden

American flag2In the coming months, Congress will take up the issue of climate change and how best to adapt America’s policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Let me be clear: climate change is real. To cope with the change, we need thoughtful solutions that rely on innovation, conservation, and preparedness.

We need to reduce emissions while protecting the interests of the American people, our communities, and our economic well-being, too. And we need to make sure our communities — especially coastal areas — are ready to cope with the changes we know are coming.

In Oregon, we can be a model for common sense improvements to modernize the way we manage our environment, power our communities and tap into the abundance of renewable energy in our state.

Any conversation about climate change must include the need to improve forest management.

Wildfires charred more than 800,000 acres of land in Oregon in 2018, sending untold pollutants into the atmosphere and into our lungs.

A comparable wildfire season in California emitted 68 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere — the equivalent of one year of emissions from electricity generation in that state.

Here in Central Oregon, Cycle Oregon was canceled for the first time in history because of wildfire smoke in 2017, and Oregonians are held hostage in their homes each summer because of wildfires that burn across our poorly managed forests and fill our skies with ash.

Better managing our forests reduces the risk of these catastrophic fires and the toxic emissions they put into the atmosphere.

Meanwhile, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that sustainably managing our forests will create the longest sustained carbon mitigation benefit.

A Nature Conservancy and Forest Service study found that active management of fire fuels can reduce the size and intensity of wildfires by up to 70 percent, and can reduce carbon emissions of wildfires by up to 85 percent. Congress needs to follow the science on forest management.

We also need to find innovative ways to tap into the abundance of hydropower in Oregon — which generates 40 percent of the electricity in our state.

I helped enact a new law in the last Congress that streamlines the permitting process for hydropower projects like Central Oregon Irrigation District’s Juniper Ridge hydropower project, which turns piped irrigation water into enough power for 3,300 homes. This technology also conserves water for farmers and fish — all carbon free.

A Department of Energy report found that U.S. hydropower could increase by nearly 50 percent by 2050 with new technology and innovation like we are developing here in Oregon.

We also need to devote more resources to the work our national laboratories — such as the Pacific Northwest National Lab in Washington state’s Tri-Cities — are doing to develop grid-scale battery storage.

A first-of-its-kind battery storage project underway in Eastern Oregon will help make renewable sources more viable and Oregon’s electricity grid more reliable.

Portland General Electric has teamed up with NextEra on the Wheatridge Renewable Energy facility that combines wind and solar energy production with one the largest battery storage facilities in the country.

This project will help replace some of the baseload power lost from the phase out of PGE’s coal-fired plant near Boardman.

In addition, any serious efforts to reduce emissions from energy production must include new, safe and small modular nuclear power, like that being developed by NuScale in Oregon.

Nuclear power is emissions-free, and the technology being designed by NuScale can help communities transition from coal to cleaner energy sources.

Just as America led the world in energy development that has reduced carbon emissions to 1992 levels, we want American innovators to develop breakthrough technologies that will improve the environment and create jobs right here at home.

Then we can help other countries reduce their emissions using American technologies and products. We know that the worldwide energy demand is set to grow by about 27 percent by 2040, so we should act now to power up American energy innovation to help reduce global emissions in the coming years. There is broad bipartisan agreement that prudent, practical steps should be taken to address current and future climate risks. It is time for Congress to work on them together.


7. What Do You Have to Lose?

Do you feel that half the things you do turn out all wrong? If so, take heart, because today we are going to talk about how to fail successfully. Yes, “fail” successfully.

After over forty years in business, Lou Tice considered himself highly successful. The company he and Diane started in their basement now does business on six continents, and the seminars he once gave to small groups of teachers and coaches now reach millions of people every year, many of them world leaders and corporate executives.

But one of the reasons Lou was successful is the same reason that Ty Cobb, one of the greatest baseball sluggers of all time, was as good as he was. If you look in the record books, you’ll find that Ty Cobb’s lifetime average was only .367. That means he got a hit once out of every three times at bat, or a 63% failure rate. It’s the same story for Babe Ruth, and for hundreds of athletes over history, as well as for virtually every other successful person in the world.

The hallmark is that they were not afraid to try and not afraid to fail. In fact, the only real failure would have been not trying at all. It turns out that people really don’t remember the times Ty Cobb swung and missed, that sales goals weren’t made, and initial product designs failed.

Have you heard of the term “writer’s block,” where the writer can’t seem to put words to paper? It has often been said that this comes about because the writer is trying to be perfect, with every word. The perceived need to be “perfect” puts such restrictions on the mind that it just gives up. Get rid of the need to be perfect, right off the mark, and your creative ideas come roaring through!

The fact is that successful people try more things more often than average folks do. Whether it’s playing baseball or building an international business, if you try enough things, you are going to succeed – a lot.

One other thing is certain: If you don’t try anything, you are guaranteed to fail. So go for it! Exactly what do you have to lose? ~The Pacific Institute

HOST FAMILY. 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
