This morning's tragic shooting in Roseburg is only the latest in a long list of mass murders in the US in recent years.

The Psychology of Mass Shootings

program date: 
Thu, 10/01/2015
After a mass shooting claimed ten lives this morning at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, President Obama adressed the nation with visible frustration, saying, "[Thoughts and prayers do] not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel, and it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America next week or a couple months from now."
His remarks touch on the now-routine nature of such killings, and the widespread frustration with the inevitable political stalemate over the issue of gun control that follows them.
KBOO's news director Jenka Soderberg spoke with Professor Eric Mankowski of Portland State University about the impact of these mass murders on our collective psyche.

Communities fight back against corporate water takeovers

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 09/25/2015
On Wednesday evening in Hood River, the Local Water Alliance launched the Hood River County Water Protection Measure, a ballot initiative that would ban corporate water bottling facilities in the county.
A large crowd filled the Springhouse Cellar Winery to hear speakers, watch a video on the proposed Nestle plant in Cascade Locks made by local high school students and listen to live music.
KBOO news will have audio from the event next week.
But in the meantime, another community in the Pacific Northwest is fighting to regain control of their local water resource in the face of yet another multinational corporate takeover.
Mt. Shasta, a small town on I-5 about fifty miles south of the Oregon border, has been targeted for its water by Otsuka Holdings, a Japanese pharmaceutical corporation which owns the Crystal Geyser Water Company.
Crystal Geyser would follow in the steps of Dannon and then Coca Cola, which for ten years pumped   billions of gallons of local water to fill single use plastic bottles for export around the world.
Earlier today, KBOO’s Paul Roland spoke with Vicky Gold of Water Flows Free, a Mt. Shasta resident who is helping organize an event tomorrow they are calling “Water: Every Drop Sacred” at the Mt. Shasta City Park.

Vic Remmers faces protesters as he attempts to cut ancient trees on two sites in Portland

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 09/15/2015
Portland residents in two separate neighborhoods engaged in civil disobedience today to stop ancient trees from being cut down by developer Vic Remmers.

A neighborhood group in Southeast Portland has banded together to stop the cutting of two old-growth trees near 41st Avenue and Clinton Street. The trees are on a property owned by developer Vic Remmers.
Last month, Remmers’ company, Everett Custom Homes, demolished the single home on the lot, a structure that was built over 100 years ago. Remmers plans to build three new houses on the lot.
To make room for the new development, two of the four old-growth Douglas Firs on the lot, including the largest of the four, were cut down on Saturday.

Neighborhood residents mobilized quickly, attempting to prevent the destruction of the two remaining trees.
This included gathering at the site this morning, cheering on a protestor who climbed one of the two remaining trees.
The protestor, Elizabeth Bennett, an assistant professor at Lewis and Clark College, remained in the tree, on a perch about 40 feet up, until about two o’clock this afternoon.
She came down after assurances from Remmers that no trees would be cut down today.
To get more on the story, we spoke with John Roberts, who lives in the Richmond neighborhood near the two Douglas Firs.

The developer, Vic Remmers, writes on his website: “We are very aware that being part of a neighborhood means being a good neighbor.  That’s why I’m a fixture at City Council and neighborhood association meetings, and I work tirelessly with the community before the first nail is pounded. The neighborhoods were there first, and it is our responsibility to be a welcome improvement and a worthy addition.”
But neighbors say that Remmers and his company did not make any attempts to work with neighbors on this development.

The Clinton street neighborhood was not the only place in Portland to come under the axe of developer Vic Remmers today.  In the Eastmoreland neighborhood this morning, south of Reed college, residents were surprised to see a tree demolition crew show up to try to pull down three ancient Sequoia trees.

They were especially surprised since they’ve been actively negotiating with the owner of the property, developer Vic Remmers, and have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase the property and protect the trees.  The neighborhood association head said that he last met with Remmers last Wednesday, and left that meeting with the impression that the negotiations were going well.

Instead, less than a week later, Vic Remmers sent out a demolition crew with no prior notice to the neighbors.
For more, KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with the head of the Eastmoreland neighborhood association, Robert McCullough.
 
Mayor Hales recently created a 25-member Stakeholder Advisory Committee to assist with the city’s residential infill project. The objective is to ensure that new houses are well integrated into the fabric of the neighborhood. Vic Remmers is one of the committee members, and their first official meeting is tomorrow (Sept. 15th) at 6pm.
