We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it. - William Faulkner

Agriculture - Covid virus has disrupted meat exports, particularly to China, after earlier disruption caused by sick workers. Oregon has now authorized local meat packer inspection to bypass federal delays.
Harvest in full swing, please be patient with equipment operators. Hours are long and visibility is limited.
Education – Debate regarding opening schools for onsite instruction has gotten partisan, again, some more. Europe’s experience has been positive but other places have resulted in multiple infections and some fatalities. Seems to depend on how serious the combination of schools and communities are about infection control.
Legislative – The redistricting measure is back on at least for a while and is way short of signatures. Special session of Legislature was relatively productive and despite some complaints of railroading, most measures passed by large margins and complicated policy issues were largely deferred, with the exception of police force regulations.
Pomona Report – Third quarter meeting happened yesterday via Zoom. Attendance was good, __ resolutions were reviewed..
Community Service - See your red cross chapter. Anyone who has recovered from the corona virus may be extremely valuable as a donor as preliminary data indicate antibodies in their blood serum are effective against the virus.
