No wonder global warming is taking place.
We need to do better. Large portions of the population in the
Sisters area have no practical transportation alternative to the
automobile. That seems so strange for a community that prides
itself for its natural beauty. Our community is a wonderful place
to live for the physically active individuals who enjoy being out
in this natural environment. We need to be able to park the auto-
mobile and develop alternative modes of transportation.
An obvious solution is to build the Black Butte Trail, so
residents can commute from Black Butte Ranch to Sisters and
back. Take the family for a fun outing into Sisters and back by
bicycle. That is a total distance of 15 miles. If the car is left
at Black Butte Ranch, there would be 12 pounds less carbon
dioxide expelled into the atmosphere (that is almost a pound of
carbon dioxide for every mile driven).
To the Editor:
I would like to extend my thanks to the folks who took the
time to vote in the school board election, and for their faith in
me. Thank you. I will do the best I can in the next four years
to make Sisters schools the very best they can be, and given
the high level of community support, I really think we can go
far and not only help mold great humans but also continue to
enhance a real community asset that we all benefit from.
I would also like to thank the people who ran who were not
elected. I really think they would all have made great board
members. I think the electorate would have been better served,
quite frankly by a first-past-the-post-election like the city coun-
cil, rather than four separate zones (seats) that were in part pre-
determined by the zone each participant selected.
Specifically, two people were elected prior to the election by
virtue of the seat they selected, leaving five candidates for two
positions. Who is to say if the electorate would have picked the
four board members going forward.
We are currently in executive session to select a new super-
intendent and I cannot speak highly enough of the community
members who turned out and gave many, many hours of their
time to contribute to the selection process. Just reinforces my
belief that our engaged community and teacher commitment
will continue to differentiate us from the education pack!
I am in the Tech Space at corner of Hood and Elm if any-
one wants to stop by and offer ideas or to discuss our local
Again, thank you.
