1. 3 Oregon Soil and Water Conservation Districts earn statewide recognition

PORTLAND, Ore. – When it comes to helping people help the land, local Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are instrumental in engaging Oregon’s urban and rural communities in voluntary conservation.

This year, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) recognized two Oregon SWCDs and one SWCD employee who have done exceptional work throughout 2018 to help NRCS implement Farm Bill financial assistance programs across the state and perform conservation education and outreach.

The Wasco SWCD and Sherman SWCD received the District Partnership Award, and Chase Schultz from the Wheeler SWCD received the District Employee Partnership Award. The awards were presented at the 2019 CONNECT conference hosted by the Oregon Conservation Education and Assistance Network in Sunriver on April 10.

The annual NRCS Partnership Awards honor a conservation district and a conservation district employee who has provided exemplary assistance to implement conservation programs on Oregon’s private working agricultural lands and forestlands.


2. Life is a Learning Experience

Every now and then we all meet someone who feels they have wasted a large part of his or her life. We may think it about ourselves, from time to time. The relentless push to do more and be more makes us feel a bit guilty when we slow down for a while, or take a break. Sometimes this push comes from the outside, but often, we do it to ourselves.

We may regret actions we took or decisions we made. More often than not, we regret the things we didn’t do or the decisions we avoided making, or perhaps the situations we walked by when we could have gotten involved and made a contribution. We need to remember that wallowing in regrets pays no dividends. It’s a poor investment of time and energy.

Life is a learning experience, from Day 1. We don’t arrive in this world fully formed and ready to make perfect decisions. We do a lot of learning as children and teens, exploring the world around us and all that is in it. The thing is, we don’t stop learning when we become adults. We make mistakes, but it is often said that we learn far more from our mistakes than we do from any unimpeded successes.

There are no wasted experiences on our path to a meaningful life. Everything that has ever happened to us can be used for a glorious purpose, if we choose to do use it that way. Everything that life has taught us – no matter how difficult or painful it was at the time it happened – can make each of us a better, stronger person today and tomorrow, if we let it. The choice is ours to make.

Don’t allow yourself to get hung up about a so-called “wasted” past. It’s not about putting your life in reverse, and attempting a do-over. Take what you’ve learned, and use it to plot out a new course for your future. ~The Pacific Institute

4. Human Trafficking Impacts Every Community

Human trafficking frequently gains national attention when large anti-trafficking operations are reported. While these stories are important as they highlight an often hidden crime, they can give the impression that human trafficking only happens within enormous networks and in large cities. In reality, human trafficking, a term referring to both sex trafficking and labor trafficking, can occur in any locale in the United States, ranging from populous cities to rural areas. While human trafficking can affect a large number of victims, such as at a construction site, some people may not realize that one person may be a victim of human trafficking as well, as frequently occurs in cases of domestic servitude. Victims of human trafficking can be any age or belong to any social group, but they frequently come from more vulnerable populations, including American Indian/Alaska Native individuals, LGBTQ+ individuals, individuals with disabilities, undocumented immigrants, runaway and homeless youth, and low-income individuals.

As with all victimization, the impact of human trafficking and its accompanying trauma can have lasting effects on survivors and their communities. Traffickers use both violence and psychological manipulation to create fear in their victims. When victims are forced to engage in illegal activities, traffickers may threaten to have them arrested if they try to escape. Some perpetrators encourage victims’ drug use to create a physical dependency on their traffickers. Frequently, survivors who escape or are rescued face serious trauma and need specialized services to recover and participate in the criminal justice process to bring their traffickers to justice. By providing trauma-informed and victim-centered services to human trafficking survivors, we can increase the support network and resilience of the entire community.

All members of any community can become informed about signs that human trafficking may be occurring and how to help victims.  On its website, the Blue Campaign by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides a list of indicators that a person may be a victim of trafficking. Educating communities about the prevalence and warning signs of human trafficking is an important step in eradicating this illegal and damaging practice.

6. Sherman County History Tidbits: Cottonwood Canyon

Cottonwood Canyon and Cottonwood Creek, beginning in sections 22, 27, 15, 11 and 12 in T1S, R18E, run into the John Day River in section 17 at river mile 40.2 at Cottonwood Bridge on Highway 206. By 1899 the present Cottonwood road was started. In 1913 the road was lower in the canyon, then turned NE along the river to the ford. The first bridge washed out in February 1916. The second bridge was built in 1917 and the third in 1962. Cattleman Shelton Burres operated his ranch headquarters somewhat N of the mouth of the Canyon, later operated by the Murtha brothers and now part of Cottonwood Canyon State Park. J.S. Burres State Park is across the river in Gilliam County. Charley Kandle and his wife lived near the mouth of Cottonwood Creek in the late 1890s. Frank Kimble was batching up the canyon and had experienced some theft. He rigged a shotgun to fire if the cabin door was opened and left a note explaining the danger to those who could read. Kandle and his wife went to visit and failed to see the note. Kandle was shot dead. ~Campbell; Anita (Kenny) Drake; French; ASC 1934; SC: FTR 16-1; Belshe; SCJ, December 14 & 21, 1962; USGS Harmony & Esau Canyon Quadrangles.

1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS 

church.family1The Fruit of the Harvest

Last week we looked at the unrealized potential of what a perfect wheat harvest might look like. Farming is impacted in every way by this world from the labor and threats involved to the variability and market acceptability of the end product. Similarly, man struggles like wheat. There is so much that enters our lives that have the potential for destruction. Just like the stuff that grows from the ground, God created man who He intended to rule over the earth without ailment or defect. But when man chose to disobey God, sin entered the world and everything changed. What once was perfect and intended for life became fallen and enslaved to sin, destruction and death.

Easter is more important than Christmas, because God chose to intervene in His creation by sending His Son to go to the cross and then on the third day to rise again. The cross is where God’s wrath against man’s rebellion was satisfied with the sacrifice of His Son when He who knew no sin became sin for us. The Bible tells us that we are saved by trusting in God’s truthfulness as we accept His gift of forgiveness and life. Jesus’ death wasn’t the end. His resurrection proved His claims and His power to restore life, but this life did not extend to everything. What it did do was to give forgiveness and life to those who believe and give the power to live in a fallen world until He takes us into His presence where perfection is once again realized. The reality is that this world will perish. But not everyone will perish with it.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NASB) — the real fruit of the harvest

Pastor, Kent Baptist Church

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.

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  4/26
