Since the information was outed, she and the head of the Institute Dr. Brian Druker thought they’d have a little fun by turning this lemon into lemonade:  Dr. Brian Druker, director of the Knight Cancer Institute, called Gert Boyle last week to let her know some possibly unwelcome news: Willamette Week was about to publish a

California’s plastic bag ban & fee heads to Gov Brown; pro choice backers react

September 1, 2014 in California, Plastic Bag Ban

The Democrats’ plastic bag ban deprives you of choice and charges you for the free bag they haven’t banned–yet.  First the bag banners said bags were killing marine life by the hundreds of thousands. When that proved untrue, the bag banners pivoted to ‘garbage island’ that churned with plastic bags in a gyre “twice the size of Texas” just off “the Oregon coast.” When we busted them for lying, they came back with new nomenclature. They were no longer merely plastic bags, they were ‘single use‘ plastic bags which MUST BE STOPPED! When people examined their

Portland Fire and Rescue gifts John Kitzhaber with a PSA, web page ad and Facebook post within 90 days of election. H/T Lars Larson Show You can’t see inside the warrens of offices in Salem to find out how the people’s business is being conducted.

But in the case of the just-released Portland Fire and Rescue public service announcement, well, it’s just right

 “High debt, high taxes, high regulations & high poverty” You have heard it before: “As California goes, so goes the nation.”  If that is the case, the national economy will be harmed for decades to come because of California’s misplaced priorities today.  Indeed, by emphasizing high-speed rail over water and failing to deal with its debt crisis, California poses a long-term threat to our national economy and is on an economic collision course of increased immigration and lack of water. Despite a much-heralded recovery in the media and by Governor Jerry Brown,
