“We’re seeing an influx of people looking in Oregon,” says Ross Penhallegon, an associate professor emeritus and horticulturist at Oregon State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences.

Welfare Utopia (Atlantic)

Oregon didn’t always have such an extensive safety net. In the first few years after welfare reform, the state, like many others, had incentives to get people off the benefit rolls, and that was what it did, Mark Edwards, a sociologist at Oregon State University, told me. Then, in 1999, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released a study showing that 12.6 percent of households in Oregon were food insecure, meaning they had uncertain access to adequate food, which made Oregon the “hungriest” state in the nation.

June and July of 2015 were the hottest in Salem’s history, with 21 days above 90 degrees and four above 100.

Benton County War Memorial hosts ceremony for local fallen (Gazette-Times)

Les Whittle’s last year organizing the annual Memorial Day service at the Benton County Veterans Memorial in Corvallis had his personality written all over it. As he emceed the event on Monday, he frequently offered his own little asides: “I wish I could do that,” he said after the Oregon State University Air Force ROTC’s drill team performed a routine where its members twirled and tossed gun-shaped props around in unison.
