A little history:

Population per the 2012 census- 3,899,353

Oregon was admitted as the 33rd state on February 14th 1859.

In 2012 Oregon was a 'Blue' state.


The state motto of Oregon has changed three times since the creation of the Oregon territory. The first motto "She Flies with Her Own Wings" was adopted in 1854 because in the spring of 1843 Oregon was experiencing political disorganization and disagreement over whether they would remain under the rule of Britain or the United States. In May of 1843 the people of Oregon came together to vote on these issues and determined that they would not be under the rule of Britain or the USA but rather be independent and only be governed by their own legislation. The adoption of this motto in 1854 was a reflection of that event.

In 1957, the motto was changed to “The Union”. According to former Senate historian Cecil Edwards, “The Union” goes back to earlier years in Oregon when citizens “were torn over the issue of slavery". 

But in 1987 it was proposed that the motto return back to "She Flies with Her Own Wings" and the change was made and it remains the motto today.

Known as the ‘Beaver’ state, Oregon is called "The Beaver State" because of the association of beavers with the early history of the state and because of the admirable qualities of intelligence, industry, and ingenuity that are associated with this animal. The beaver is the official state animal and is displayed on the Oregon state flag.

Since that time I have been under attack on Facebook by people who “know more than I do” on the subject. First let me say I acknowledge there are some medical benefits to marijuana, but it should also be acknowledged that…

Working Hard For YouMARCH 7, 2014Assuming no unforeseen meltdowns this should be the last day of this Session. Many bills, including the background check bill (SB1551) will now be dead. Part of the reason is the timeline of the Session in the Constitution. Even without an agreement to adjourn the Session would end at midnight Sunday. That means there is no way a bill could make it clear through the process in both Chambers without rule suspension, and we will not give it at this point on…
