Child care troubles

It is shameful that SOU has allowed the Schneider Children’s Center to close. Bill and Florence Schneider must be turning in their graves.

Talking smoke

The MT’s headline over the photo of Congressman Walden talking with fire officials was “Walden talks smoke.” This seems like an appropriate headline.

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary offers several definitions of “smoke,” and I think this one fits Walden’s newfound concern about our wildfires: “something of little substance, permanence or value”. What has he been doing in Congress for the past five years as these fires have increased in number, frequency and destructiveness in Oregon and elsewhere? Maybe he will tell us at the debate challenge issued by his opponent, Jamie McLeod-Skinner, scheduled for today at noon at the RCC/SOU Higher Education Center in Medford, Room 129B. Or will he be “all smoke and mirrors”? Come and find out.
