The Regional Growth Partnership estimates that 6,000 people in the region are employed in the solar energy industry — more than the two largest manufacturers combined.

Five manufacturing plants and six system integration companies in the area are enough to form an industry cluster, says Council member Lindsay Webb.

 
The real stench comes out of Washington

Perhaps you are as excited as I am that, at long last, our Congress critters have delivered for us!

Health care for all, you ask? No, not that. A real economic recovery program? Uh. No. An end to the Iraq war? No, again. Instead, what the lawmakers have produced for us is (hold on to your hat, now) a new Capitol Visitor Center!

A fire that burned a barn to the ground on Corduroy Road last Friday was likely caused by a wood burner, according to Oregon Fire Chief Bill Wilkins.

 

“The fire will be listed as accidental under the fire reports,” said Wilkins at a council meeting Monday. “It also lists as undetermined. Probable cause will be a wood burning stove within the barn.”

 

The fire, fueled by high winds, started at 12.27 a.m. in the barn at 7150 Corduroy Road. Hundreds of livestock perished in the fire, including goats, ducks, chickens, guineas, rabbits and pigeons.

 

A house just 30 feet from the barn was slightly damaged. Prakash Thombre, who owns the house and barn, and his family, were unharmed.
