Over the last 25 years I have repeatedly asked UNITED STATES, STATE OF OREGON, LAKE COUNTY and their COURTS if they were the originals of those names.

OB is a real issue due to no provider qualified to deliver babies. The government will have the right to come in at anytime to review patient charts and medical information. These are the very people that put into place HIPPA Privacy Act. They will also dictate what supplies and meds will be used in…

The Lake County Planner approved sale of 90 acres of land near Lakeview Redi-mix to Redrock Biofuels, and a permit to build a facility to convert biomass into jet fuel. What is the safety risk to Lakeview residents if there is an explosion at the plant, or a train transporting jet fuel derails on old…

Owned by Iberdrola Renewables, a 150’ foot stack belches smoke turning trees into energy on top of an aquifer that is contaminated with the byproducts of the former uranium mill on the north end of the Town…

My first thought like most others was wow, what a great idea. A rural medical clinic in Lakeview. Then I really got to thinking about the past, present and future. Past, in October of 2013 Advantage Dental came to town. They bought Lakeview Family Dental. I was employed there for almost 18 years. I stayed…

There’s a duality to Lake County life I’ve had difficulty grasping, how animals  can be considered pets and commodities. Perhaps I’m too urban to understand the rural mentality of animals being raised for anything other than pets, as my experience has been that they are family, not product. The ranching lifestyle accommodates both, some animals…
