Staples and the U.S. Postal Service have cut a deal that jeopardizes our nation’s public post offices, the sanctity of the mail and thousands of good jobs at living wages. Staples has contracted with the USPS to staff post offices installed within their stores.  In pilot openings last fall, 82 post offices were launched inside Staples stores with low-paid, poorly trained workers (the average Staples worker makes $18,000 per year).    If the pilots are “successful”, the USPS plans to open post offices inside every one of the almost 1,600 Staples stores nationwide, beginning this September.

More information at:
http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/drones
Drone production is a growth industry. Its uses have expanded from military and surveillance to agriculture, firefighting, search & rescue, wildlife tracking, aerial mapping--to name only a few of the growing applications.

In 2015, the FAA will open domestic airspace to drones. Oregon passed HB 2710, but there are holes in the legislation.
Our community forum will explore the positives and negatives of this new technology, and hear alternative views on what kind of control is needed to ensure safety, privacy, and
use for the public good.
Our panelists will explore the use of drones domestically and internationally, for use in war and peace, by police and civilians, by the state, and by private corporations.

~OO~
 Obama exceeds the worst of his predecessors. He’s guilty of repeated high crimes. They’re too grave to permit. They can’t be allowed to go unpunished
