Tesoro Project Opposed by Stand Up to Oil Coalition

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 01/21/2016
The Tesoro project has been opposed from its earliest days by a growing coalition of groups and individuals from across Washington and Oregon, called Stand Up to Oil.
Dan Serres is the conservation director for Columbia Riverkeeper, a group that has spearheaded action by coalitions opposing other energy projects along the river, including liquefied natural gas terminals, coal and oil train proposals and activity at the Hanford nuclear site.
He told KBOO about the coalition’s early days and its ongoing strategy.
It isn’t just environmental groups who have taken up the coalition’s call to pack hearings and flood Inslee’s mailbox.
The group’s framing of the issue as a matter of safety and bad economics has also drawn in a variety of other interests that don’t normally agree with each other.

Portland Reservoir Destruction is on Unstable Legal Grounds: Council Fights to keep documents secret.

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 01/14/2016
Portland Mayor Hales rushed an unusual item on council agenda yesterday:
Authorize the City Attorney to institute proceedings challenging the District Attorney’s Order in the petition of Mark Bartlett: 10 minutes requested
It turns out that Mr Bartlett had a request for information denied by the city; last week the Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill ordered the city to disclose the information; and yesterday city council voted 4-1 in favor of Hale’s proposal: to use tax payer money to fight the release of 25 year old public information.  
According to documents received by KBOO, what is at stake is the legality of the on-going destruction of Portland’s open reservoirs at Washington Park and Mt Tabor.
 
Even Novick, who voted No, seems to want to keep the information secret. He is quoted in the Oregonian as saying:
“I just don’t see a way around this, I think the law should be changed.”
 
Mr Bartlett’s volunteerism around this issue began in 2006 , when Portland Parks under Dan Saltzman, entered negotiations to sell part of Mt Tabor to Warner Pacific.  
 
Mr Bartlett knows of the existence and likely content of the contested documents through a 2002 memo from water bureau employee Dan Combs. 
 
Mr Bartlett explaines how it is more expedient for council to treat property at Mt Tabor and Washington Park as if under a single city ownership. And that this contrasts a simple reading of the law as well as the 2002 memo from water bureau employee Dan Combs.     

At stake in the sequestered documents, referenced in the Combs’ memo, is the extent to which city council members knew that their ongoing destruction of our open reservoirs was illegal from the start. These same city council members are now fighting the district attorney over release of the documents.

Trial of Delta Five Continues

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 01/12/2016
Today is the second day in the trial of the Delta Five, the five activists who in September 2014 blocked a mile-long train carrying volatile explosive Bakken crude through Washington State. 
They held up the train for eight hours in the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe, or BNSF Railway Company’s Delta Yard.
The five activists were arrested and taken to the Snohomish County jail for the night.
The Delta five are now on trial in Washington.
The legal defense team behind the Delta Five has gained national attention as they argue in court that the action was necessary to forgo imminent destruction to the environment. 
A necessity defense means the team can call on expert witnesses such as a BNSF whistleblower. 
They will be able to present the Sightline Institute’s research stating that northwest fossil fuel proposals would deliver over eight hundred million metric tons of carbon pollution — that’s five times that of the Keystone XL pipeline. The expanded activity would lead to the shipping by rail of hundreds of combustible oil trains per week.

Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 01/11/2016
A public hearing on the proposed Tesoro Savage oil terminal in Vancouver along the Columbia River is scheduled for tomorrow in Ridgefield, Washington.

Last week, more than one thousand people attended the first public hearing on the terminal, most of them opposed.
KBOO reporter Doug McVay spoke with Don Orange, a Vancouver business owner and an opponent of the oil terminal, to learn more.
Tomorrow’s hearing will be held from 5:00 PM until 11:00 PM, at the Clark County Event Center at the county fairgrounds in Ridgefield, Washington.
A third public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, January 14th, at the Centerplace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley, Washington.

Supreme Court Hearing on Right-to-Work

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 01/11/2016
The Supreme Court heard a case today that could have wide ranging implications for union members across the country.
Several conservative judges on the court have made statements indicating they would rule against the unions, but although arguments were heard today, a decision won’t be issued for several months.
Since 1977, the Court has said non-union employees can be required to pay a portion of union dues to cover the cost of collective bargaining and prevent "free riders" — workers who get the benefits of a union contract without paying for it.
Now, in a case brought by non-union teachers in California hoping to get the earlier decision overturned, the justices are asked to decide whether even that requirement violates free expression.
KBOO’s Robin Ryan spoke with Ken Zinn from National Nurses United for more on this story.
