Agriculture - Hazelnut marketing board set 2020 base price at $0.65/lb vrs 0.83 last year.
Education – Many (mostly white collar) parents working from home, and schools are mostly in remote learning situations due to Covid 19 virus. Maybe a silver lining is the chance for some family recovery? It has been a long time since even one average parent could afford to be home with children. Now we have parents and children spending most of the day working together, or at least working in the same space. Maybe some profound good can come of the virus.
Legislative – Another special session is coming. There is a petition being circulated to add Oregon Volunteer Firefighter Association to the Oregon Charitable Checkoff list. It is on the Timber Unity website among others.
Pomona Report – no report yet.
Health – CDC projecting widespread vaccine for Covid will arrive mid year 2021. Funny thing happened to the regular flu virus in the Southern Hemisphere. It mostly went missing. Flu cases are down as much as 95% in several countries that have been enforcing social distancing.
Community Service – Many local heroes made in the last few weeks. As fires were fought, folks helped with livestock and possessions and kept the newly homeless fed and sheltered. It is going to take a long time for Red Cross and other community organizations to backfill their budgets. Please help where you can.
