The news is kinda' slow here too. Here is an article from todays newspaper, The Grants Pass Daily Courier:
Magnolia marks spring's return to area
JEFF DUEWEL/Daily Courier
Spring flowers burst forth the past few weeks in Grants Pass, including magnolias on either side of Sixth Street -- this one at the Redwood Motel and one across the street at the historic Ahlf House, built around 1902.
The original owner of the huge blue Victorian home was J.H. Ahlf, a German immigrant who ran a butcher shop on G Street, said local historian Mike Oaks.
The fossil record indicates that magnolias date back millions of years.
They rely on beetles, which are ancient pollinators.
As Kim states, we need to be certain of the guilt of a murderer. If the perpetrator wishes to die, I think that, it removes much doubt about his guilt. But, if the person is pretending to be guilty, and no one discovers that fact, it is a reason to consider reversing the murder sentence. It seems like there could be some complicated twists and turns in a case like this.
This headline from today's Roundup: "Payson school district needs $2 million computer upgrade". (27 March, 2013).
The article describes very expensive top of the line equipment which is totally unneeded by the schools. A photo shows a huge monitor, about 28 inches wide. In another article, the need for costly routers and servers is touted.
I use a computer which I installed in 2004. My 14 inch monitor is very adequate! I use a dial-up internet connection which does not support streaming video. I do not need to watch streaming videos. Text internet web sites are more useful to me.
I agree with Tom. The schools need teachers, not expensive hardware and software.
I just moved to Oregon, I don't yet know if the majority of Oregonians approve of the governors decision. I, for one, am undecided on the capital punishment issue. However, if one of my family was murdered, I would say, yes, execute the @#$%^&*!
Yes! I miss Tinys. It's difficult to find good restaurants with reasonable prices. I'm now eating at a place called Black Forest Family restaurant.
John, I wonder if you remember the place?
It would be nice if we could stop sending billions to Israel. When we don't need the middle east oil, we could put some of our tax payers money back into our pockets instead of foreign interests!
"we’ll have fewer political ads on the TV maybe we’ll be able to see more obfuscations" I gave up on live TV a long time ago. I read the news on CNN, PBS, and NPR. Try it for a little while, and see if you don't become less frustrated with the news!
For entertainment, I watch DVD movies.
Well said Kim. It seems like the Amish are not the only religious group which has a fetish about hair. Orthodox Jews seem to like to dress in black and have long uncut hair.
I'd like to open a barber shop and offer free crew cuts to these people who think that they are directed by god.
I'd like to see a state personal income tax reduction. Make my tax the $50.
Hmm... since I'm moving from Arizona, I won't worry about it!
It looks like the rest of us will remain broke until at least 2017.
I will not be too happy if either side wins the presidency. Our congress has been so out of touch with the voting public that it seems like it is in a perpetual stalemate.
