Oregon is looking into providing geothermal power to local government, school, business and residential buildings as an alternative source of energy.

“We’re continuing to meet with the Port Authority to explore ways we can help create value for Oregon residents and businesses,” said Administrator Mike Beazley. “We’re looking at the Port Authority’s analysis. It’s especially applicable in those places where they’re not really served by natural gas. We started looking at parts of Oregon, really the northwest portions and some to the south and east that really don’t have natural gas options available. They’re served by propane or heating oil. So we’re looking at alternatives, and maybe even lower energy costs for residents and businesses.”

Those attending a Meet the Candidates forum Oct. 17 in Elmore could witness an unusual political rivalry.

Lowell Krumnow, the long-time mayor of this Ottawa County village, is being challenged for the office by his older brother, James Krumnow.
