This just in: Toyota is considering Clatsop County as their nationwide car recall center. It is widely known now that Clatsop County is the Recall center of the universe. Brett Vandenheuvel and Olivia Schmidt were unavailable for comment as of this writing.
Our recently elected Attorney General is in over his head.
He speaks from two sides of his mouth. From one side, he speaks of “transparency” in government. From the other, he holds the truth for ransom.
Our good friends over yonder at North Coast Oregon (NCO) have done a great job in uncovering what may lead to a few people breaking the law that he has sworn to uphold. NCO has done a public information request (PIR) for records for a public employee’s email and correspondence.

Just out from our wonderful Portland Oregon based newspaper – The Oregonian, is an article that sheds light on the recent Oregon LNG vs The Port of Astoria lawsuit and goes on to say that our Governor who can’t seem to keep jobs in our esteemed state is NOT going to investigate the port/Oregon LNG lease.

I’m not going to go to any great lengths today to explain why LNG is great for the common order.
In the following cases, LNG, in fact, did not kill mine or anyone’s dog.
In case number one, LNG has rescued some people who surely would have been killed in a perilous boating accident.
In case number two, the Republic of Kalifornia has embraced LNG as a means to an end with landfill gasses.
So next time someone suggests to you that LNG is evil and anyone that says otherwise should be evaporated from planet earth, send them here.
Today I read a pretty good (BALANCED) article regarding Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
I have to hand it to the hard workers over at Columbia River Business Alliance. They certainly have their brainstorming efforts down.
I don’t like to make a habit out of writing about (LNG), but there were several oddities that I just couldn’t resist.
Sometimes I wonder why people work so hard at being uninformed or misinformed.
I remember when LNG came to town. Looking back I’m glad I was part of a 5 member commission who voted to allow a lease to a company who wanted to go through a process of determining if an LNG storage facility could exist on the lower Skipanon Penninsula in NW Oregon.
At the time of the vote, only a handful of people came forward to pronounce the evils of locating such a facility.
