Trump Supporters and Protesters Clash at State Capitol

What started out as competing rallies for and against President Trump at the Oregon State Capitol turned into violent skirmishes over the weekend.

After a group called the Northwest Trump Alliance for Change was granted a permit to stage a rally at the Oregon WWII Memorial in Salem, Oregon Saturday, another group called Salem Stands for Love organized their own rally just down the street on the steps of the Capitol.

What was already a tense atmosphere between two groups turned violent after a group of counter-protestors joined the fray, and now, a Terrebonne man is facing charges for his involvement in the conflict.

State Law Prevents Bike Bridge Construction

The access to recreational outdoor areas is one of the biggest draws in Bend, and also one of the largest economic drivers. That’s why the Bend Park & Recreation District has proposed that a new pedestrian and bike bridge be built south of the Old Mill District area, but a state rule passed specifically for the Upper Deschutes River is standing in the way of the project.

Central Oregon Daily’s Brian Jennings looks at the passionate debate surrounding the proposed bridge.

Bend Chamber’s What’s Brewing: Bend’s UGB – Moving Forward

Land supply is precious. Historically, competition has plagued it with controversy and conflict, including civil wars. And, while the recent state-approved expansion of housing and employment lands within the city’s urban growth boundary (UGB) may have temporarily relieved Bend from such atrophy, it’s the consensus of what’s next and how it’s prioritized that will be crucial.

The discussion “Bend’s UGB: Moving Forward” was held on March 14, 2014 at the What’s Brewing forum.

A Magical Trip Through McMenamins Old St. Francis School

When it opened in 1936, the Saint Francis School in Bend was the first ever parochial school established in Central Oregon. When the school moved to a modern campus on the Northeast Side of town, McMenamins renovated and reopened the landmark as McMenamins Old St. Francis School in 2004.

Guest rooms and bars have been added to the complex that stay faithful to the original look and feel of the old school. Mackenzie Wilson takes us on a behind the scenes tour.
