In the city of Gladstone, Oregon, south of Portland in Clackamas County, a group of citizens continues its frustrating attempts to keep the city from selling a popular park.
The ten-and-a-half acre Gladstone Nature Park contains a hiking trail and is an example of the white oak savannah ecosystem.
The city is looking into selling the land to pay for new city buildings--one leading idea for future use is as a gravel pit.

Today the White House releases its 2017 budget proposal.  President Obama has called the budget a roadmap to a future that embodies America’s values and aspirations.  The near five percent increase in spending calls for 4.15 trillion dollars to go towards social security, cyber security, and interest payments on the national debt.

OCPP Releases New Report on OR Economy and Wages

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 02/08/2016
From housing construction and real estate to high tech and manufacturing, Oregon’s economic growth is so strong, it’s second only to the oil-boom state of North Dakota.
But hunger and food insecurity have also risen in the state despite the economic recovery.
That’s why increasing the state’s wage floor would benefit the business sector as well as families.
That’s according to the newest report from the Oregon Center for Public Policy.
Last fall the OCPP released a study showing that nearly one in six Oregon households doesn’t have enough to eat.
KBOO’s Lisa Loving spoke with Juan Paul Ordonez about their newest report.

The OCPP’s report says the best strategies for sharing the benefits of economic property across the economic spectrum include:
--significantly increasing Oregon’s minimum wage,
--protecting workers against wage theft
--and creating a health care Program providing affordable, health care to low-income Oregonians who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid.

Obama Administration Asks for Funds to Fight Zika Virus

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 02/08/2016
The Obama administration will ask Congress for one-point-eight-billion dollars to respond to the mosquito-borne Zika virus.
Though officials have not documented the transmission of Zika from mosquitoes within the US, the World Health Organization has warned that the virus is expected in every country in the Americas except for Canada and Chile.
The White House said the emergency funding would be used for mosquito control programs, vaccine research, and education and improving health care for low-income pregnant women.
The Zika virus has been linked to microcephaly, a condition associated with incomplete brain development in newborns.
The government’s response is focused on pregnant women or women who are hoping to get pregnant.
At a White House Press briefing today, Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that, though serious, the Zika Virus is unlikely to affect most people.
 
The disease has been detected in US territories, including Puerto Rico, and at least fifty Americans have returned to the US having contracted the virus in other countries.
