Washington View: Northwest dams ‘flood busters,’ prevent devastation

Not a mention of the dams on the Willamette drainage that also plays a role in the lower Columbia. Many of the dams on the Willamette where built in the 60s. To the best of my memoey only a couple dams on the Columbia where built for floud control the rest where built for hydro and transpertation.

Forest Service must cure its ‘timber-itch’

Jim Furnish is a former deputy chief of the U.S. Forest Service.

Your radical misrepresentation of facts and twisting of the truth is probly why you are no longer employed with USFS. There is not one thing in your letter that is truthful or honest. I would think under the current adminastration you could get back on and even promoted. To bad the C wasted ink on you.

How did Judgment Day go for you?

You could also plug in peek oil with many of those dates and be pritty much on the same page. Cut off oil as many are trying and it would also be end of the world in many ways.

Letter: Remember full definition of rights

mr_basil_seal — May 22, 2011 at 11:11 a.m.

Funny how you twist the highlighted areas and that a good number of those that signed it supported slavery. Just saying your ideas and theirs have many differant meanings.

My disagreement with Celia is her whole premmis of all these being rights not opertunities. As the progresives think if you can not use your oppertunity to acheave these things on your owen then the rest that have some how should provide them through government. A good example if anyone is paying attention is the meltdown we are still in as to why this is flawed thinking.

Letter: Can't get a break from the right

Wow is this all a bunch of dung. Even the left media gave credit to both POTUS. They also made statements that it would have helped Obama out more in getting relected if it had been closer to election time.

Daven good point.

Land, labor and capital keys to Clark County's economy

hendriks - your point is valid regarding the favoritism to high-profit margin business when it comes to the B&O tax.

That being said, still no comparison between the two areas when you consider the Multnomah County tax, City of Portland business license, Tri-Met tax and Oregon Income taxes. Your example was retailing, which is a half-cent on the dollar for the B&O with credits allowed for "small business".

That is the short list to be sure but generaly correct. It does cost less here but many are trying to catch up with Portland.


When you only read from hand picked exstream sites you only get revised history far from the facts. Sorry but your history is from a parallel univers not the one we are living in.

Clark Public Utilities on sidelines of wind power battle

xly85j — May 19, 2011 at 7:42 p.m.

The issue is how much and final cost to end user. The less it cost the better for all. If you want to pay more feal free but don't demand it of others.

Wind power companies criticize BPA shutdown plan

luciafalls — May 18, 2011 at 6:34 p.m.

You do understand that the dams are not thought of as renewable under WA law when it comes to the power mix utilities will have to buy starting next year.

luciafalls — May 18, 2011 at 6:04 p.m.

Same stuff diferant day. You have real no idea of what you are talking about and can not prove anything you say with out use of a biased sorce.

Clark Public Utilities on sidelines of wind power battle

Wind never produces more then 80% of its plate rateing and seldom 20%. In high wind they have to be slowed down to a rate below maximum plat rateing plus some for gusts. A number around the world have failed by flying apart for not doing so including one in Oregon.


Still just reading the radical propaganda I see. It must be dark where you keep your head and brain.

Letter: Interest in urban forests encouraged

So Charley is is the one to blame for all the poorly placed trees and types that plug drains and break up sidewalks and streets. At the same time he will do nothing about trees removed in public park right-a-ways like the one at SE 164th along the Columbia.

Hay Charley take a look at what auto dealer Dick Hanna did behind his house on SE River Shore Dr. All you tree lovers that buy from Hanna are part of what happened there.
