County Commissioners Week of May 19-26

Short meetings and a wildfire discussion between KMED’s Bill Meyer and Josephine County Commissioner Herman Baertschiger that would make a climate scientist weep were the gist of our elected officials’ duties the last two weeks. During their meetings Commissioners heard from the District Forester regarding wildfire readiness, finalized RV sites for Whitehorse Park, shuffled money around to keep the sheriff’s patrol going and approved some appointments. Next week things should be a bit more exciting as they bring the Sportsman Park issue back for public comment as they go through the terms of the agreement that turns the property over to the Sportsman Association.

    Thanks for sharing this politically driven drivel about fighting fire with I ask a set up question and you expound on your knowledge as a timber cutter. No references to science, just good ole boys patting each other on their outdated knowledge of the past.
    What have we voted into office?

    This is just sad, but I suspected the “good ‘ol boys” continue to stack the deck in favor of notions that are not supported by science. It is unfortunate that recall is hard to pull off. I’d like to think that voters don’t want the poison they’re serving.
