  4. Anybody at OSU?

    After talking to some more folks about this issue, I learned a little bit about how Donato did this research. After the fire, they re-planted a site, waited, then salvaged the fire damaged timber. Then came to the conclusion that salvage operations were detrimental to the seedlings resulting in high mortality compared to sites that were left alone. I think one issue to point out in particular to the Biscuit fire, is that salvage operations didnt take place until a couple years after the fire. Im not saying I agree with all salvage operations, but its difficult to come to the broad conclusions that Donato did under these circumstances.

    Wow!! I am surprised that Sessions went to the extent that he did, I wouldnt expect that from him. Where did you see this article Dru?
  8. Cyclops kitten born in Redmond Oregon!

    Also very common with sheep. If western false hellebore is ingested (especially) during the 14th day of gestation, a deformity in the lamb known as monkey-faced lamb occurs, which looks much like the picture of the goat. Also, the brain is extremely under developed and is generally the size of a marble. Cattle are slighty susceptible as well, but only if no other green forage is available.
  9. decent enough for beginners. They're good light skis, great for the tour. However, if yer the agrresive type and in the crud and the steeps, you'll need somethin a little fatter. Im buyin these for a friend thats brand new to tele, so should work well for her, and hell, if they dont, i bet i could turn around and sell'em on ebay for a profit!

  16. Saw the flood coming

    Interesting about the global warming idea. But has anyone given much thought to the Gulf Hypoxia (The Dead Zone) Ag nitrate runoffs have definately had an affect on gulf temperatures. This gulf hypoxia is occuring in cycles as well, but for reasons not completly known. Have they linked hurricane severity to any of this? Just thoughts

  19. Question re: Diamond Peak Loop in Central Oregon

    I have not actually been on Diamond Peak but i have been all over the Yoran Lake/Peak area, and around Lakeview Mtn. Very nice area, bring skeeter dope though! Yoran Peak is kind of a choss heap, make your best judgment as far as that goes, and Lakeview mtn can easily be hiked from the south end, hike up to the ridge, and follow it north to the summit. The north side of Lakeview is the steap side. There are not too many trails going into Lakeview mtn, mostly game trails that maybe a couple of hikers or hunters have used. Bring a map and compass and you'll be fine. Enjoy the trip!
  20. Church and State

    some think seperation of all church and state, but what about incorporation of all the different churches? what do ya guys think? link.
  21. Never Satisfied - Meadoze & Ril3y at it again!

    Thanks for that info Winter, to bad the river is fully appropriated. I have a couple of questions for ya. Is the research that the NRCS did about the snowmaking available? online perhaps? Do you know who funded their research? I would be interested in taking a look at that. Also I was wondering if you could elaborate a little more on why you think the project is not a CE? How much land is actually physically being disturbed? Are you basing that on just the amount of water being used and the amount of artificial snow cover, or are you taking about the construciton of the system seperatly? I didnt think that the snow cover would be an enviro impact, maybe the installation of the system....just curious, CE's can get very shady and differ between industries. Thanks for the input, looking forward to more info, keep us posted as well if you hear of any more happenins.

  25. Never Satisfied - Meadoze & Ril3y at it again!

    You dont get it...I dont care if Riley gets what he wants or not, I dont care about Meadows, or any golf courses. The problem is, is that no industry that uses any portion of any natural resource can expand without getting roadblocked by environmentalists. What Im saying is, the way for people to address this issue is not via NEPA, but to lobby for in-stream rights. However, applying for instream rights will not affect the Orchardists, as the orchardists have older appropriation dates on the water rights. Thus, during low water years, the orchardists have the rights to the water first. Now I have not researched if this particular river is fully appropriated or not...so this whole conversation is worthless anyways...
