Editorial: State can’t fund OSU-Cascades the same old way (Bend Bulletin)

Oregon can’t build a new university campus in Bend by thinking it’s going to fund its universities the same way it always has.

That was about $700 million in education and general appropriation money for 2015-17.

NOAA looks for answers in the mysterious Mariana Trench (Christian Science Monitor)

On Mother’s Day, the art of flower arranging (Bend Bulletin)

“I’m going to tell you a secret — this does not preserve your flowers,” said Debbie Stumbaugh, a master gardener with the Oregon State University Extension Service, holding up that packet of flower food that comes with most store-bought bouquets.

Oregon grass seed acreage this spring is down (Capital Press)

A recent report from Oregon State University Extension bears that out. In 2014, Oregon farmers harvested 269 million pounds of annual ryegrass on 120,830 acres. In 2015, acreage increased slightly to 121,290 acres, but produced only 220 million pounds of seed.
