The Oregon Bureau of Land Management is considering the sale of 270 acres of public land to make up a budget shorfall. The shortfall is due to the federal government's decision to cut funding for the Rural Schools Act.
KBOO's Marc de Giere spoke to Katlin Hill, with the American Lands Alliance, a group opposed to the sale of public lands.
It took days - often weeks - for governmental agencies and relief organizations to respond to the disaster in the Gulf.
But residents - in the middle of the disaster - didn’t have a choice, and acted immediately.While countless lives were saved by these first responders, their heroic actions were rarely reported by mainstream media.
