about this Cheney visit tomorrow?
while we are smart enough to realize that it's not consistent with the values we seek to uphold
by disrupting Cheney's right to speak, I have more pressing concerns than him. He comes in
and stays a few hours and then is gone. He is NOT that thrilling a pulbic-speaker, and for the
most part, who will care what he says or remember it...EXCEPT for a mere handful, and it is
these people that I'm most concerned for...as should you too...

Measuring Measure 30: Legislative report provides perspective
The average Oregon taxpayer would see a $133 rise in state income taxes because of Measure 30. The net effect would be $111, because state taxes are deductible for federal income tax purposes.

The income tax increase is heavily skewed toward the upper income tax brackets. Oregonians with annual incomes between $20,000 and $30,000 would see a net tax increase averaging $19. Those with incomes above $200,000 would pay an average of $1,929 more.

The Forest Service has released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement

This is the largest proposed timber sale in modern U.S. history and the Forest Service has given the public 45 days (the statutory minimum) to review the document and make substantive comments. We urge you to write the Forest Service and request a time extension. A sample letter is below.
