    When we checked in on the Oregon governor’s race shortly before the election, there were Democrats in that state who were beginning to panic. Governor Kate Brown had been ahead by a solid 20 points at the beginning of the year, but Republican Knute Buehler had closed that race to less than five in the final stretch. Momentum seemed to be on his side and unhappy voters appeared to be in danger of possibly giving Brown the boot.That didn’t wind up happening, but the polls were pretty much spot on in this case. Brown will get to serve another four-year...

    Voters in Alabama, West Virginia and Oregon will cast their ballots in November against or in support of bills amending their state’s abortion laws. Alabama’s proposed constitutional amendment, “Statewide Amendment 2,” will ask voters to affirm that “the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.” It would also “recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children.” “The real aim is to ban abortion, but that’s not what you see in the language. This is just very broad. We have seen some split among conservatives...

  • Old-Growth Forests May Help Songbirds Cope With Warming Climate [your tax dollars at "work"]

    Research by Oregon State's Betts and Sarah Frey found warblers declined in areas with young forests, including those replanted after clear-cut logging. But hermit warblers are doing better in other areas. "In landscapes that had more older forest, their population declines were lowered, or even reversed, even though the climate has been warming," Frey says. The Pacific Northwest has had a decades-long push to preserve its old-growth forests, and the warblers thrived in them. That suggests these forests somehow shielded them from the ill effects of rising temperatures. The question is why, and that is where this new study comes...
