Message from OSSA President,|
Gilliam County Sheriff Gary Bettencourt
July, 2014 -- I am staying in the fight and refuse to give up! You hear it every day, “It is going to be legalized
anyway, why not benefit financially from it” or
“It’s only a matter of time, so why fight it.” If we
simply take the common sense approach, then
this should be enough for us all to vote against
the legalization of marijuana. Read more.
Message from OSSA General Manager,|
July, 2014 -- According to the calendar, the “official” fire
season had not yet started when trees and
underbrush West of Bend exploded in flames.
The “Two Bulls” fire, two separate fires -- both
caused by humans -- combined into one larger
fire. Careless people and nature pay little
attention to the calendars we create to govern
our lives. Read more.
SheriffBrian Wolfe, Malheur County
Sheriff Brian Wolfe was born and raised in Vale,
Oregon. He was the first child in a family of five.
Sheriff Wolfe had a predisposition for the outdoors
and from a young age, came to love the wide open
spaces of Eastern Oregon. Like something out of
an old western, he roamed Malheur County on
the back of a horse. He also takes a more modern
approach on motorcycles, ATV’s, and trucks.
