OSU Senate backs foundation divestment in fossil fuel firms

The Oregon State University Faculty Senate voted 38-30 Thursday to encourage the university foundation to divest from fossil fuel companies.

The resolution is nonbinding, but organizers of the OSU Divest campaign hope the move will send a signal to other universities and organizations.

The OSU Foundation, a nonprofit entity separate from the university, manages $600 million in assets, with $36 million, or 6 percent, invested in fossil fuel companies.

The foundation has not taken a position on the divestment issue, but the group’s board recently created an advisory committee to consider such requests.


John Turner resigns from new OSU board

PENDLETON (AP) — The new Oregon State University board of trustees has its first resignation.

The retired president of Blue Mountain Community College, John Turner, quit before the first meeting because he’s running for the Legislature.

Turner told the East Oregonian it wouldn’t make sense to serve for a few months and then — if elected — be forced to resign to avoid a conflict of interest.

Lawmakers during the most recent session approved independent boards to give Oregon, Oregon State and Portland State more autonomy from the State Board of Higher Education. The new boards will have the authority to hire and fire presidents, set tuition and fees, and oversee university operations.

Turner would have been the only Oregon State trustee from the eastern part of the state.


No verdict on Witham Oaks until January

The battle over Witham Oaks will continue into the new year.

The Corvallis City Council held a two-hour, 45-minute public hearing Monday night at the LaSells Stewart Center on controversial plans to develop the parcel in northwest Corvallis.

But a request to hold the record open an additional week meant no deliberations or vote were held, and councilors will not render a final judgment until Jan. 6.

Campus Crest of Charlotte, N.C., hopes to build a development that would house 900 Oregon State University students on a 95-acre property west of Northwest 36th Street and north of Harrison Boulevard.

Campus Crest plans to use approximately 25 acres for the housing complex and leave the remainder as open space, which it has said it will donate to the city.

The Corvallis Planning Commission rejected on Oct. 16 the Comprehensive Plan Amendment the Campus Crest proposal would require, plus zoning, planned development and subdivision requests.

Commissioners cited concerns about traffic, pedestrian and bicycle safety and neighborhood compatibility.

And those issues were in the forefront Monday night as more than 20 people testified (four in favor and 17 in opposition).

Also discussed was whether Corvallis really needs more student housing given the increasing number of online students and a looser rental market.

Campus Crest representative also noted with a visual display the much larger development footprint that might have occurred on the site if the original zoning (low density housing on 57.7 acres) had been implemented.

The council meeting was moved from its normal venue at the downtown fire station because of public interest. Approximately 100 people were on hand.

Monday night marked the fourth public meeting on Witham Oaks. The Planning Commission heard testimony at the LaSells Stewart Center on Sept. 4 and Sept. 23 before deliberating Oct. 16 at the downtown fire station.


Oregon University System classified staff union will vote on strike authorization in early September

The union that represents the University of Oregon’s classified staff will decide on Sept. 9, 10 and 11 whether or not to go on strike.

SEIU Local 503 on Monday announced that contract negotiations with the Oregon University System, a body governed by the State Board of Higher Education of which the UO is a member, have reached an impasse. Contract negotiations will continue.

The bargaining group laid out a list of reasons for the strike authorization vote. Among the concerns the group has voiced:

• OUS proposals leave 1,200 classified employees eligible for food stamps — SEIU says the university system shouldn’t be a “poverty-wage” employer.
• Raises and step increases have been lackluster over the last four years.
• The OUS should recover lost income from banks that practice “misleading and fraudulent financial practices” rather than from students and faculty.
• The OUS should allocate more resources to faculty and students rather than “high-salaried” administrators.

Earlier this month, Oregon State’s Daily Barometer reported that classified staff at the school had left chalk messages in front of the OSU student union that read, “Sorry students, fall term might be delayed,” and “The university may force staff to walk out on strike to get a fair contract.” Administrators there assured students that school would start on time.

SEIU members also protested at the UO back in June in the midst of contract negotiations.

Bargaining continues Thursday and Friday at Oregon Tech and the UO’s SEIU members will vote on the strike authorization Sept. 10 and 11 in Columbia 150.

Male dead of gunshot wound near OSU’s Pi Kappa Phi chapter

Law enforcement has responded to a gunshot victim near the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house near Oregon State University shortly after 5 p.m. Monday evening, according to the Gazette-Times. At this time, Corvallis Police Department has reported that preliminary evidence suggests the male may have committed suicide, according to the Gazette-Times.    

Groups call for buffer zones in pesticide use

///
Aerial spraying of pesticides, or “crop dusting,” is a practice dating back to 1906.

Several public advocacy groups held a rally today against pesticides at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza during the Saturday Market. Pitchfork Rebellion, an anti-pesticide group from the Triangle Lake area organized “Occupy This! Rally for Pesticide Justice and Jobs!” The event called for banning aerial spraying of pesticides near homes and schools, creating a buffer zone to protect people’s health.

The rally began with a performance by local reggae/jam band Sol Seed, followed by a spoken word protest performance calling for a “pure organic Oregon.”

Then “Day,” a resident of the Triangle Lake area, took to the stage. Day is one of several residents of Triangle Lake who has been documented to have the pesticides 2,4-D and atrazine in his urine. 2,4-D, or 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, is a major ingredient in Agent Orange, one of the chemicals used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program during the Vietnam War. A professional analysis of four public streams near Day’s and other residents’ homes found these pesticides in all of the streams.

Several environmental groups held a rally today against pesticides at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza during the Saturday Market.

Day said,

“We’re just a bunch of hillbillies from Triangle Lake tired of getting hit by pesticides everyday.”

Studies by numerous organizations, from the EPA to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to public universities, have documented the effects of human consumption of pesticides. Pesticides can cause damage to the human nervous system, reproductive system and other organs, developmental and behavioral abnormalities, disruption of hormone function as well as immune dysfunction.

Day introduced Roy Key, a professional forester of over 40 years. Key said he was there to talk about the dangers of pesticide poisoning in Lane County.

“I’ve been in the forest business for 40 years. I’ve managed forests without herbicides or pesticides. You don’t need those substances to manage the forest.”

Key compared pesticide use to his experience in the Vietnam War.

“It’s just like Agent Orange all over again. But here in Lane County.”

Key called on attendees to tell Oregon governor John Kitzhaber to stop the use of pesticides in the state near homes and schools.

Day, a resident of Triangle Lake, has been documented to have the pesticides 2,4-D and atrazine in his urine. A professional analysis of four public streams near Day’s and other residents’ homes found these and other pesticides in all of the streams.

Oregon already has a buffer zone to protect waterways and salmon species. Streamside protection rules for non-federal forest land in Oregon were adopted in 1994. All private, state and local government forest landowners or operators conducting pesticide operations near streams, lakes or wetlands must comply with these rules. In November 2011, a federal judge upheld buffer zones for pesticide use near streams and rivers. Dow Chemical Company, a leader in specialty chemicals based in Michigan, filed a lawsuit seeking to undo the Oregon rules, saying that they were too restrictive. The restrictions ban the ground spraying of three agricultural insecticides within 500 feet of waterways with salmon. They also ban aerial spraying within 1000 feet of said waterways.

While Oregon has a buffer zone for pesticide use near water, it has not adopted a buffer zone near human activity. The Oregon Department of Forestry says,

“Currently, there are no regulations in Oregon requiring a buffer zone for aerial application of herbicides near specific structures or facilities, including schools.”

There are, nonetheless, safety requirements in how pesticides are used, both in residential and forested situations:

“While pesticide use in a residential setting must abide by pesticide label safety requirements, forestry applications must follow those requirements plus additional regulations spelled out in the Oregon Forest Practices Act.”

Pesticide companies, such as Dow Chemical, argue that their products abide by these safety requirements. Concerning 2,4-D, the substance found in Triangle Lake residents, Dow Chemical has said the following:

“2,4-D is available for use in U.S. crop production today because EPA has determined, after evaluating all human health and safety considerations – including the concerns expressed by activists – that current uses (including currently authorized uses on corn) pose ‘a reasonable certainty of no harm.’ This EPA conclusion was reached only after the Agency had considered all relevant data…This regulatory conclusion is supported by mainstream health and safety experts who have thoroughly evaluated the product.”

The application of pesticides has had a long and controversial history. Dr. Patricia Muir, Professor at Oregon State University’s Department of Botany and Plant Pathology, says that, following World War 2,

Ingrid Edstrom, nurse practitioner at Eugene’s Infrared Breast Thermography LLC, spoke of the link between pesticides and breast cancer. “Oregon has the second highest breast cancer rate per capita in the nation,” she added.

“Chemical pesticides have become the most important consciously-applied form of pest management.”

The Oregon Department of Forestry explains this popularity according to pesticides’ cost-effectiveness:

“Many landowners see herbicides as the most cost-effective means of achieving their reforestation goals following logging or fire, or for converting neglected brush land to forests.”

The first important pesticide was DDT (otherwise known as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane). Muir says,

“DDT was discovered in 1939 by a Swiss chemist Paul Muller. In its early days, it was hailed as a miracle…It was inexpensive and easy to apply. It was so effective at killing pests and thus boosting crop yields and was so inexpensive to make that its use quickly spread over the globe. In 1948, Muller was awarded the Nobel Prize for its discovery.”

As years went by, however, DDT was labeled both directly and indirectly toxic to many organisms. Most disturbingly, as Muir explains, DDT

“showed up in human breast milk at remarkably high concentrations — so high that the milk couldn’t legally be sold through interstate commerce if it were cow’s milk! [DDT] is the most widespread contaminant in human milk around the world.”

While DDT was banned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1972, other pesticides are commonly used in Oregon. The last year in which Oregon has data compiled for pesticide use is 2008. That year it was reported that 280,001 pounds of pesticides (chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion) were used in the state.

A rally attendee protests 2,4-D, one of the pesticides found in streams near Triangle Lake.

The groups that rallied today are hoping to change how those hundreds of thousands of pounds of pesticides are administered. They asked all attendees to fill out postcards to Governor Kitzhaber to ask for expanding pesticide buffer zones to include not just fish, but people.

Christina Hubbard, the Project Director of Forest Web, also spoke at the rally. Forest Web is a grassroots conservation organization based in Cottage Grove. Hubbard said,

“Forest Web stands in solidarity with these groups. I’ve personally been working with Day since 2007. A lot of these pople have had major clinical studies done on their urine and it is documented that they have pesticide poisoning.”

Hubbard says this rally’s message is not particularly radical.

“Really what this is about is creating a reasonable buffer zone for aerial spraying. This is common sense, to protect homes and schools.”

OSU Students Donate 20,000 lbs. of Used Items from Dorms

CORVALLIS, Ore. — When Oregon State University students moved out of the dorms, they left a lot of stuff–on purpose.

They donated more than 20,000 pounds of housewares, food and other items.

A portion of the donations went to the OSUsed Store, but most of it went to nonprofits including the Linn Benton Food Share, the Cat’s Meow Thrift Shop, and Love Inc. of Benton County.

Also included in the donations were old electronics, which were accepted for the first time.

University and Oregon State University only Pac-12 schools without campus police force

The University’s Department of Public Safety is slowly transitioning to become an official police force on the campus. This new title brings new responsibilities, such as training in weapon use and how to respond to different types of scenarios.

To the University population, this is a new idea — one that hasn’t been seen in Oregon public universities because of legislation that barred a police force on campus. For campuses outside of Oregon, a campus police force equipped with firearms is nothing new.

Of the 12 schools in the Pac-12 conference, 10 universities have sworn police officers serving its campus. The two that do not are Oregon State University and the University of Oregon.

Nancy Greenstein, the director of police community services at UCLA, said the police department on UCLA’s campus has been around longer than she can remember. Greenstein said that its presence is possibly more important now than ever.

“In today’s age, with campus shooters and such, having police officers who are trained and can respond to any emergency is great because they can deal with active shooters and be the first on the scene,” Greenstein said. “We would be there faster than a neighboring agency. We’re always here.”

Greenstein also said that because they have a population of a medium-sized town going through campus every day, an independent police force is a necessity in order to make sure that the Los Angeles Police Department is not spread too thin.

Washington State University in Pullman, Wash., takes a similar approach. Because the town is smaller, the campus police department works strictly on campus and Pullman Police Department works on the areas surrounding campus. Sergeant Monte Griffin of the WSUPD said that his office works side-by-side with the Pullman Police Department.

“A big thing that we do is alleviate the stress for Pullman’s police department,” Griffin said. “We have a really good relationship and notify each other when something is going on to make sure that we can properly address it. It really helps to take care of issues quickly and effectively.”

Oregon State University, although still without a campus police department, doesn’t want to acquire one. Oregon State’s Department of Public Safety has had a police service contract with the Oregon State Police since 1989. The 10 officers dedicated to Oregon State take care of investigations and carry firearms, where as the campus’ public safety officers patrol the campus and offer a wide variety of security services.

“OSU has been extremely pleased with the services provided by OSP through the service contract,” said Jack Rodgers, Oregon State’s Department of Public Safety director. “There is no desire to make changes to our law enforcement services.”

Oregon State Sen. Floyd Prozanski, who represents Lane and Douglas Counties, is an advocate for the legislation supporting University campus police. Prozanski thinks Oregon public universities need a campus police force.

“I think it’s time that the University has reached the top in population, and we know that people are coming onto campus that may or may not have an affiliation with the University and committing crimes,” Prozanski said. “Implementing a campus police department will put the University of Oregon on equal footing and give it quicker response times when crimes are reported. I personally think it’s time.”

UCLA’s Greenstein said that the question of whether the University should have a police force will become irrelevant once the police are implemented.

“You still have the same departments of public safety,” Greenstein said. “The only thing changing is now they have more tools. It’ll just be business as usual.”

Civil War Was Hardly a Battle

///

— Sam Finley, Sports Editor EDN 

Some Civil War. It was hardly a battle for Oregon against their rival Oregon State. Instead, the Ducks left the Beavers in the dust with a 49-21 whipping.

Now comes the time for a couple admissions. First of all, Oregon was not necessarily over that loss to USC and they took out their frustrations on OSU.

“It motivated us a lot,” said Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas. “We wanted to show the other guys what we could do, as well as show ourselves again what we can do.So we came out anxious to get some respect from the Pac-12.”

Second, contrary to what some said this past week, this was not just another game to play on the schedule for the Ducks.  Not to Oregon running back Kenjon Barner, anyway.

“It means everything,” said Barner with a big smile. “It’s bragging rights for another year. I can go to Corvallis, take my hat off and show my face and be happy about it.”

 

The Ducks can certainly be happy about a lot of things besides winning the annual state dispute. The victory gives them three consecutive seasons with at least ten wins. They also won the Pac-12 North, and will host the inaugural Pac-12 Championship on Friday as a result. Head coach Chip Kelly said the key to getting back on track came from an overall team effort.

“I think the defense set the tone for us early,” stated Kelly. “I took us awhile to get us into our rhythm offensively, but everybody contributed to this one.”

Yes, it took their offense a quarter to get going. But after the Beavers tied the game at 7-7, the Ducks ran off 42 points and you can point to a number of outstanding performances that made it happen. Quarterback Darron Thomas threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns. LaMichael James rushed for 150 yards and a score (in what might’ve been his last Civil War matchup). Barner scored a couple of his own.

However, let’s give the game ball to senior tight end David Paulson. The soft-spoken, yet sure handed kid from Auburn, Washington led the way with a few more outstanding catches. On a surprising note, Saturday marked the first time he had a game with more than 100 yards in receiving. (105 to be exact).

“I think there was always a possibility of having a day like this,” said Paulson. “But you never really know until you see what defense they’re playing. We saw that the spots were open and we took advantage of it. It was fun to have the ball in my hands and help the offense out.”

Paulson had fun helping the offense out, and his teammates were glad to oblige one of their more reliable players.

“DP has been one of the most consistent guys all year,” said Thomas. “He comes out each week. Sometimes he’s banged up, but you wouldn’t know by his attitude. He caught every ball I threw his way. A very good game for him.”

Ironically, one of the other notable performers happened to be Paulson’s roommate. Defensive end Terrell Turner had two sacks and was willing to credit the living situation for their efforts.

“David was awesome,” said Turner. “I told him that’s why we’re roommates because we both played a good game.”

Of course, the fact that it was senior day also made their performances all the more memorable.

“It felt great,” Turner said. “I had my parents here, and they usually don’t make it out to that many games. So to have them here, and get to put on a show was awesome.”

“It was a special day,” said Paulson. “It was senior day and I looked back at the five years I’ve been here. I’ve had a great career and it’s kind of sad that it’s coming to an end. But it was fun to perform well in one of my last games here.”

Now the stage is set for UCLA (who clinched the Pac-12 South over the weekend) on Friday. If the Ducks can win that one, they’ll be back in the Rose Bowl for the second time in the last three years. It would also give them their third consecutive season of appearing in a BCS Bowl Game, setting up the goal of finally winning one.  That being said, they have to get past the Bruins first.

“We’re excited for the chance to represent the Pac-12 North,” said Kelly. “The challenge for us is to play in a short week, and we haven’t done that. But the Bruins have the same challenge, too.”

Indeed, Oregon has a challenge on their hands and I’ll give my usual predictions later this week. In the meantime, let’s go over some other things that happened over the past few days.

I watched the Packers and Lions tussle on Thanksgiving Day and came to conclusion or two. One is that Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. As he led Green Bay to a 27-15 victory over Detroit, I marveled about how calm and cool he was in leading his offense down the field.

Some will say that Tom Brady is still the guy, but he hasn’t won a playoff game since the ’07 season (when his Patriots blew their perfect season in the Super Bowl). Peyton Manning is injured and may not be back. Thus, for my money, Rodgers is the guy I want as my signal caller at this time.

I could go on and on about him, but why don’t I move along to what irked me during that game? Ndamukong Suh really put his put foot on it, didn’t he? What was the Lions’ defensive tackle doing by kicking that Packer in the head? That action, by itself, was stupid.

But doing it after a recent meeting with the NFL Commissioner to allegedly clarify the rules really takes the moron cake. It is clear this guy has some anger management issues, and the league needs to discipline him accordingly.

I’ve heard that Suh is a nice guy off the field, and it looks like he does a lot of good work with charities. Still, there is no place for his on-field behavior and should be suspended for a few games.

Let’s get to some high school football before I wrap this up. In 5A action, Marist’s outstanding year is over. The Spartans lost 31-14 against Mountain View on Friday in the OSAA semifinals. Still, head coach Frank Geske and his boys have little to hang their heads about their 11-1 campaign. Next season, look for them to make another run at the title.

Meanwhile, at the 6A level, Sheldon showed why they might be the best team in the state against Grant. The Generals were supposed to provide them a tougher matchup, but the Irish ran them right off the field in a 49-7 blowout.

Now Sheldon will face another potential test in the OSAA 6A semifinals on Saturday against Central Catholic. But if Connor Strahm can play at his usual high level, you’ve got to like their chances against the Rams. And what a feather it would be in Lane Johnson’s cap to win a state title in his first season as the head coach? We shall see.

With that, there’s a lot of stuff going on this week and I intend to cover it as only I can.

Until next time, I’ll see you in the bleachers.

Beavers end home season against Huskies

///

Don Smalley, EDN

Oregon State will look to salvage whatever is left of its disastrous season when it hosts Washington for a 12:30 kickoff (ROOT Sports, Comcast 34) at Reser Stadium.

At one time, this game might have looked like an uphill climb for the Beavers (2-8). The Huskies had won six of their first eight games. But after losses to Oregon and USC, Washington (6-4) has come back down to Earth.

Adding to their problems, it was announced that Husky quarterback Keith Price is going to have to sit this one out due to a couple of balking knees. Stepping up in his place will be redshirt freshman Nick Montana. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian announced that the son of Hall of Famer Joe Montana, via Twitter, would be his starting signal caller.  Welcome to 2011.

Courtesy of @CoachSark, “Nick Montana will make his first career start this Saturday. So proud. He has earned this opportunity. Need to get Keith Price fully healthy, he has had a great season.”

Montana has appeared in just four games this season in very limited time. He has one touchdown pass.

Since the Huskies are going with an inexperienced quarterback, the Beavers will most likely be given a heavy dose of tailback Chris Polk, one of the top running backs in the Pac-12 and the nation.

“Defensively, what we have to really strive for is a more disciplined, detailed run defense. That’s going to be a major factor,” said Beaver head coach Mike Riley. “Football can be very simple if you can do a good job on first down and second down, and if you can get in the best third down situation, you’ve got a better chance of getting them off the field. That’s what we haven’t done for a good portion of the year, and particularly the last few weeks.”

Polk is third in the conference in rushing by averaging 113 yards and scoring 10 touchdowns. He’s also known as one of the top receivers coming out of the backfield, something NFL scouts drool over when they watch the 5-11, 222-pounder from Redlands, Calif.

When the Huskies decide they want to throw the ball, Montana will have a couple of very good options downfield in two seniors, Jermaine Kearse and Devin Aguilar. Kearse nearly beat the Beavers by himself last season in Seattle by catching nine balls for 146 yards and four touchdowns in the 35-34 double overtime win. In that game, Riley decided to go for two in the second extra period to win the game. The decision turned out to be the incorrect one as tight end Joe Halahuni, who is usually as sure-handed as it gets, dropped the pass, leading to a mad celebration at Husky Stadium.

“In order to have a good season, you have to win the close games and that’s what the Huskies have done,” said Riley. “They’ve lost to teams that are highly ranked like Stanford and Oregon and USC, but they’ve won their other games and there have been some close ones. That has mirrored a lot of the season we have had.”

If Washington’s offense is a strength, its defense is something less than desired. The Huskies are 10th in the conference in scoring defense (34.1) and 10th in total defense (425 yards per game). Despite those numbers, Sarkisian says the defense is getting better.

“Regardless of who we’re playing this week, our defense is improved,” he said. “Obviously we have a major challenge with (the Beavers) ability to throw the football. But the key for us is to stop the run initially, and then hope we can apply some pressure to the quarterback.”

Since the second half of the first game of the season, OSU has gone with redshirt freshman Sean Mannion as their quarterback, and he has experienced some growing pains in 2011. The Beavers are near the bottom in most of the offensive categories in the conference.

James Rodgers will attempt to end his storied career as the all-time receptions leader at OSU. Photo courtesy of OSU.

The game will mark the last home game for 17 seniors including James Rodgers and Halahuni. Rodgers, who currently has 218 catches in his career, needs just three receptions to become the all-time leading receiver at the school. He was granted a medical redshirt by the NCAA to play this season after blowing out his knee last season at Arizona. Although Rodgers hasn’t had the same speed he once possessed, he still has the ability to get open.

“I think the all-time competitor in James Rodgers is a great story because he wasn’t the same receiver (Mike Hass and Joe Newton) were when they were young,” Riley said. “He worked his way to a record. And quite frankly, it snuck up on me. I hadn’t realized he was as far along in this deal.”

Rodgers and the rest of the senior class has seen a lot more winning than they have in 2011. Oregon State has defeated Washington State and Arizona, and that’s it. The win against the Wildcats cost then-head coach Mike Stoops his job the next day, and Washington State might very well be looking to replace Paul Wulff. If the Beavers should pull out the upset, don’t look for the Huskies to be firing Sarkisian any time soon. But a loss in Corvallis won’t set well in Seattle for a program that looks to be on the rise.
