A “perfect storm” of high demand and increased production carried the Oregon wine industry to significant economic growth in 2017, according to an annual study by the University of Oregon Institute for Policy Research and Engagement. The latest Oregon Vineyard and Winery Report shows the state added 92 new vineyards and 44 new wineries in 2017, while expanding planted acres from 30,435 to 33, 631 — a 10.5 percent jump. Overall production also rose from 79,282 tons of wine grapes valued at $167.8 million in 2016, to 91,343 tons at $191.9 million in 2017. Willamette Valley Pinot noir remains the leading variety, accounting for 58 percent of acreage and 59 percent of production. Most new wineries, however, came out of Eastern Oregon and “at-large” wine growing regions. Eastern Oregon — home of the state’s newest American Viticultural Area, The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, established in 2015 — saw 18 new wineries open in 2017, while the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon saw 13. Total sales grew to more than $550 million in 2017, up nearly 4 percent over 2016. Though in-state sales saw a slight decrease from 593,192 cases to 579,155 cases, domestic sales outside of Ore ...

The Senate just voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. By doing so, senators ignored the outpouring of opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination, evidence that he would gut Roe v. Wade if confirmed, allegations of sexual assault, questions about the honesty of his answers to questions under oath and serious concerns about his ability to be impartial and unbiased on the highest court of the land. (near bottom of page, also see Opinion by Jennifer Finney Boylan - nytimes.com) Today’s vote followed misleading and deeply partisan remarks by Kavanaugh at last week’s hearing on sexual assault allegations. The vote was scheduled despite an inadequate and incomplete FBI investigation that failed to interview numerous potential witnesses to the alleged instances of sexual violence. “Our fight is far from over. No one will forget the hearings, the bravery of Dr. Ford or the blatant disregard for credible and believable testimony that without a doubt called into question whether or not Brett Kavanagh was fit to serve on the Supreme Court. Oregonians can join us in fighting back by voting NO on Ballot Measure 106 and NO on Knute Buehler, who r ...

I set off to bike from the northwesternmost corner of Oregon to my home in Northern California to rehab a torn hamstring and a broken heart. I imagined damp difficult days of riding punctuated by melancholy nights. But instead I found a mellow joyride and a welcoming community. Riding 380 miles along the Oregon Coast didn’t just heal my heart; it renewed my faith in the power of moving my body through beautiful places to set everything right again—if not in the world, then at least within myself. You don’t even need to buy a map to bike the Oregon coast. The Oregon Department of Transportation provides free Coast Bicycle Route Maps—which account for mileage, elevation gain and loss, traffic volume, prevailing wind directions, and average monthly temperatures and rainfall—at Visitor Centers throughout the state. These maps even list scenic alternatives to the already scenic Highway 1, as well as every state park and hot shower cyclists will encounter along the way. Highway 1 snakes along the Oregon Coast, passing through dripping old-growth forests and one of the largest dune systems in the country. Sea stacks thrashed by waves are shrouded in fog every morning, and white sand ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — Scientists from Oregon State University scientists are saying that Mount St. Helens is out of line with other major volcanoes on the Cascade Range. University geophysicist Adam Schultz believes a giant subsurface rock formation diverted magma, causing Mount St. Helens to form west of the Cascadia Arc. "It seems like what we call the Spirit Lake batholith is probably the reason why Mount St. Helens actually pops up far to the west of where you would anticipate it to be," Schultz said. Researchers put together different imaging studies to gain a better understanding to what may be below the surface of the volcano. They compared older studies what show certain structure, density and temperature — with newer ones that show subsurface electrical conductivity. This report will be published this week in "Nature Geoscience." "Either method by itself can lead to a level of uncertainty, but when you layer them together as we have done in this project you get a much clearer picture of what lies below," Schultz said. Mount St. Helens formed because of the Juan de Fuca plate off the coast of Washington and Oregon went under the North America plate. The plate ...

It’s no secret that Oregon is growing far more marijuana than the market can absorb, so some cultivators are turning to MJ’s cousin: hemp. As Oregon cannabis prices continue to sink to new lows amid a product glut, outdoor growers are applying what they know about marijuana and cultivating hemp for both smokable CBD flower and biomass that can be extracted into CBD oil. The hemp pivot allows growers to diversify their revenue stream and capitalize on a crop that could soon become legal at the federal level – thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill pending before Congress. It also allows them to capitalize on the booming popularity of CBD products. Here are four reasons a shift toward hemp makes sense for some businesses – and why it should be done cautiously: 1. Adding hemp allows companies to diversify their operations while still growing marijuana. Under a Tier 2 license in Oregon, most MJ farmers are limited to – at most – a 40,000-square-foot (just under 1-acre) grow. But hemp doesn’t face the same restrictions, so many growers have planted 3 or more acres of the plant. “If you have a farm this year that’s designed to grow cannabis and you can’t sell any of the ca ...

ESTACADA, Oregon — An injured horse found wandering alone in a northeastern Oregon wilderness has been rescued. KATU-TV reports that the 8-year-old horse named Sandy was led out of the Wallowa Mountains last week and is recovering at the Eagle Fern Equine Hospital in Estacada. She's in the care of the horse rescue group Sound Equine Options and is scheduled for surgery at Oregon State University on Tuesday. The horse had an injured left back leg but was led out after veterinarians said the 6-mile (10-kilometer) trip would be safe after giving her painkillers. It's not clear who owns Sandy or how she sustained the injuries. "We're guessing she fell down a cliff or on rocks," said Kim Mosiman, the executive director of Sound Equine Options. A U.S. Forest Service lookout on Mule Peak, Brian Sather, spotted the horse several weeks ago. He called for help after spotting her again a week later and went to check on her. "We got up close to her, and we could see that her leg was very injured," Sather said. "It was an open wound, and she was limping on it. And she had some other wounds on her too." He started making calls and eventually found Sound Equine Options. He ...

In a bid to stem the flow of marijuana product to the black market, Oregon regulators have ordered a steep cut over the next six months in the amount of cannabis that medical MJ patients can buy on a daily basis. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) last Thursday reduced purchasing limits for Medical Marijuana Program cardholders to 1 ounce of cannabis per day, down from the previous limit of 24 ounces per day. The rules took effect Aug. 24 and expire in six months. The change comes as the OLCC faces increased pressure to react to the state’s oversupplied cannabis sector, including greater scrutiny from the state’s U.S. attorney, Billy Williams, who has tied the oversupply situation to the diversion of marijuana to the black market.

According to a news release, the “action on OMMP purchase limits is designed to prevent potential diversion of usable marijuana into the secondary illegal mark ...
