How can we solve our financial problems in Oregon? Look to the past!

by Rep. Bill Post

No I DO NOT want to go back to clearcutting whole swaths of forests as show here in the 1890’s, but I do want OUR land back from the Federal Government and WE the people of Oreogon to decide what’s best for us! Did you know in 1977 there were about 90,000 jobs directly related to timber in Oregon? Today: about 27,000. This is why we can’t pay for schools, public safety and all of the other financial woes we are dealing with in Oregon. Let’s get these folks back to work! I also love history and this photo shows us our history. I love it.
