The Dog Days Aren’t Over in Cannon Beach

Dog owners beam at the antics and carefree jaunts of their four-legged family members all along Oregon’s coastline. The public nature of our beaches means that dogs are welcome anywhere they can run on the sandy shores. Leashes are forsaken (legally as long as the dog is “within voice control”) in favor of Frisbees and makeshift driftwood for fetching. One town in particular is any proud pet owner’s dream. Cannon Beach welcomes four legs with open arms and offers a variety of pet-friendly recreation and accommodations.

Guns in Schools

In 2009, police arrested a Western Oregon University student at the student union with a concealed handgun and knife in his pocket. Later, the Newberg School District sought, and failed, to keep guns from its schools. These cases ignited a strongly-contested conflict about guns on the campus of Oregon state universities and other state schools.

Function from Form

Two years ago, Rick Fredland made a clever connection between form and function, crafting the concept of the Silipint, or pint cups made of silicone. These vessels could bounce off any surface, survive cliff jumps and regain shape after being run over by a bicycle-powered mobile pub. The cup’s adaptable form gives it more lives than a cat.

Coming Home

It was Fourth of July weekend in Vancouver, Washington, and the startling snaps, pops and explosions from fireworks outside of Mandee Juza’s home immediately transported her back to Iraq. She holed up in the basement, and tried to escape the feeling that guns and bombs were thundering nearby, threatening her life. She was experiencing the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a common mental illness that has affected veterans of all wars.

Tillamook State Forest

In Oregon, there are six primary state forests. Altogether, these account for 3 percent of forestland in Oregon. The Tillamook State Forest is an 800-square-mile forest eighty miles west of Portland. As a state forest, the land is managed by the board of the Oregon Department of Forestry, which is composed of seven members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state senate. The Department of Forestry is charged with managing forestlands to balance social, environmental and economic interests under a doctrine known as “greatest permanent value.”

Mitochondria Man

Shoukhrat Mitalipov is a molecular biologist at OHSU’s National Primate Research Center in Beaverton. Recently, he announced, through the science journal Nature, breakthrough research in which he created mitochondrial disease-free monkey offspring by replacing the diseased parental mitochondria with disease-free donor mitochondria. The upshot of Dr. Mitalipov’s research could help parents have their own biological children without the risk of inherited mitochondrial diseases. That’s huge. At least one in 200 born childen inherits mitochondrial mutations that can lead to disease. The problem now is navigating political and regulatory barriers in the U.S., while the U.K. embraces Mitalipov’s research.

Cooperation Runs Through It

The Deschutes River flowed icy blue under an arching footbridge at Sawyer Park in Bend. On the right side of the river, ancient layers of rock glowed orange at dusk, and joggers and mountain bikers caught the last light of a chilly January day on the east flank of the Cascades.
