    A LOGGER’S STORY

    My name is Donald Walker Jr. For 30 years, I was an Oregon logger. I have been out of work since August 1989, when the company I worked for closed out its operation near Oakridge, where my wife and I live. Times have been pretty tough since then, though I think we have been luckier than many woodworkers. We still have our home where we raised our children. Many younger loggers, with small children at home, have lost everything as a result of the spotted owl controversy that has tied Congress in knots. Faith...

    Science Learns Green Money Scheme

    From the 1990′s and updated 2013 by Chuck Diaz It seems that the world of science has now taken up the same tactics used by the Greens to get you to dig into your pockets and send them some of your money.  The Center for Science in the Public Interest is the organization that shocked the world with the news that popcorn popped in coconut oil can kill. Within a week of that announcement I received an envelope in the mail with “10 Foods You Should Never Eat” printed in bold across...

    KBEE’S Chapter 1 – Arriving at Camp

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz The 747 turned its nose down for its landing at Portland International.  Heather pushed her tanned face up against the airplane window to get a better look at the land below.  Never had she seen so much green, or so many trees. “Isn’t this going to be great?” she asked her classmate Jason who was sitting next to her.  Her breath fogged up the window. “I’m so glad I was picked to go to Camp K-Bee.  Aren’t you?” Jason, with his nose buried in his...

    KBEE’S Chapter 2 – The Lodge Meeting

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz  When Heather arrived at the lodge, introductions were underway.  Counselor Barry and the rest of the team were telling their background.  Heather thought most of the counselors looked young, maybe only 17 or 20 years old.  Their job consisted of looking out for the kids and making sure no one got into trouble.  Then there were teachers from all over the world. Heather found a spot to sit next to Jason.  “I thought we were getting away from teachers,”...

    KBEE’s Chapter 3 – Learning More

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz   The next few days were a little better and brought a series of adventures.  The kids were broken into small groups by tent number.   Heather’s tent was paired with Jason’s.  These groups were set to a series of challenges.  They explored various rocks and plants, learning their names and variety. They then had to close their eyes and tell what item they held by touch alone. They played a game the counselor called, ‘tree hug’ where one child...

    KBEE’S Chapter 4 – The Lumber Mill

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz   The next day the children boarded the bus for a trip to the mill. Heather didn’t want to join them, but camp rules kept her from staying behind.  Her dislike for Jonny grew, even though they did not find the compass in Jonny’s things. The mill turned out to be an awesome place.  It really was a huge wood factory like Counselor Barry had said, Heather thought.  It had it’s own lake where they kept the cut down trees until they could be milled or...

    KBEE – OZONE, Chapter 1 Ozone

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz “Hurry up,” Jason called to Richard.  “We’re going to be late for breakfast. “I am hurrying,” Richard grunted.  “I just have to put some extra sunscreen on my nose.” Jason heard a knock at the hotel room door and opened it to find Heather and Jonny waiting outside. “What’s taking you guys so long?  You were supposed to meet us at the elevator five minutes ago,” Jonny complained. “It’s...
