    BILL’S GUESTS FOR 9-29-16:

    7:15 Dick Sim, entrepreneur, world traveler and author of the new book: “Freedom To Argue: We The People v.s. They the Government,” joins Bill. Mr. Sim says that we need fewer laws, less regulation but more cultural norms. Bill and Dick willl talk it over.

    The world is a shrinking space because of population growth, the ease of modern travel and enhanced global communication. As the world shrinks, the conflicts are becoming more evident, many of which were addressed in Monday night's first presidential debate, such as, growing wealth gaps, population disparities between continents and the inefficiency of central governments and politicians trying to legislate solutions for societal problems best addressed by cultural norms.

    According to global entrepreneur and political author Dick Sim, we need fewer laws, less regulation and stronger cultural norms. Sim, who has spent the last three decades traveling the world overseeing global industrial operations as CEO and chairman of two NYSE public companies, is addressing all this and more through his new book, Freedom to Argue: We the People Versus They the Government.

    In an eye-opening and candid interview, Sim can discuss any number of political, economic and global issues discussed in Monday night's first presidential debate including:

    • The biggest issue the United State is facing now
    • The clash of wealth, population and beliefs between the West, Middle East and Africa
    • The voter revolt: not enough jobs, the 1%, illegal immigrants
    • Why the U.S. needs legal immigrants and the type of immigration policies we should have in place
    • His thoughts on Muslims emigrating to the United States – are they capable of assimilating to our country?
    • What the Brexit vote should have taught the U.S.
    • His critique of the intellectual/political elite and their vision of a global multicultural community – what they are getting wrong
    • The failures of the U.S. government and how to fix them
    • And much more!

    For more information, go to freedomtoargue.com. You can find Dick’s book at all major booksellers, and at Amazon.com.

    7:35: Dr. Bud Pierce, Oregon GOP gubernatorial candidate, calls the show. Dr. Pierce and Bill will discuss why he believes that SAT scores in Oregon appear to be on the decline, PERS, Measure 97 and more.

    8:45: Chad Day, General Manager at Roxyann Winery joins Bill in studio for today’s “Whose Business Is It Anyway,” interview.

    From Roxyann.com:

    It’s the Crush Polio Grape Stomp, taking place on Saturday, October 15th. Rotary International has been at the forefront of the eradication of polio worldwide since 1979. In the mid 1980’s there was an annual average of 350,000 Polio cases reported worldwide in 125 countries. Today there are only two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, that have the wild Polio virus with just over 100 cases reported worldwide in 2015.  The number of reported cases in 2016 is expected to drop to around 30 cases worldwide.

    October is Polio awareness month.  Please help Rotary accomplish our goal of eradicating Polio worldwide by coming out to RoxyAnn Winery on October 15th from 1-5 pm.

    Admission is $25, includes a glass of wine, grape stomp for all ages and a chance to play in the Cornhole Tournament.  The tournament is limited to the first 24 2-person teams that sign up.

    Get your tickets for the Grape Stomp at roxyann.com.

    COSTCO AND LUBA

    Just a few years ago folks screamed when Wal-Mart wanted in on E. Pine, Central Point..."Oh, the TRAFFIC", Remember? Now COSTCO survives a LUBA challenge just a block away? Sounds to me like the difference between 80lb blondes in SUV's vs "Gap-Toothed Hillbillies" ;-) Seriously, if I were Wal-Mart, I'd revive their plan to open close by in CP. Note how LUBA didn't say Cal Martin and the Costco opponents were WRONG, rather that they didn't raise the objections early enough in the planning process, which is a VERY different conclusion.

    Medford’s Nike Connection: Bill Bowerman

    By Dennis Powers

    Former Medford High football player and coach, Bill Bowerman, later went on to become a legend in coaching track--and a co-founder of Nike. He played for another stand-out, Prink Callison, whose Medford teams had a 44-game win streak at one time and won three state championships from 1926 to 1928. The 1928 Medford “Tigers” (as the team was called then)--one of the best teams ever in Southern Oregon--averaged 36 points a game, limited opponents to 40 points for the entire season, and Bill Bowerman was their left end.

    Born in 1911, Bowerman moved to Medford when he was 10 years old. Raised by his mother and aunts (his father left the family when he was 2), he was “a mean little kid,” by his own admission. When he went out for football as a sophomore, Callison wouldn’t put up with his antics and kicked him off the team to junior varsity. Bowerman credits both him and Superintendent Hedrick (for whom the middle school on East Jackson Street is named) as the disciplinarians who straightened him out. He also played basketball and edited the school newspaper.

    After high school, he attended the University of Oregon (“OU”) and became a quarter-mile runner under the legendary Ducks’ track coach, Colonel Bill Hayward; this coach became the mentor under whom Bowerman modeled himself and learned from the “concepts of greatness,” as he reminisced. With his bachelor’s degree in 1934, Bowerman decided to attend medical school, but he first had to earn the tuition.  

    Coaching for one year in Portland, he returned to Medford in 1935 to coach football and track. His “Tornado” football teams (newspaper sports editors coined the nickname) went 69-13-8 overall, while his 1935 and 1939 teams were 7-0-1 and 8-0-1. World War II intervened months before he was to start medical school and become a doctor. Having learned to ski in the Siskiyou Mountains, he headed to Colorado, trained for the 10th Mountain Division, and skied the Italian southerly Alps on patrol.

    He returned to Medford after the war and coached for two more seasons, leaving in 1949 to coach track and freshman football at OU. For 24 years as the head track coach, he developed many of the world’s best distance and middle-distance runners, among them being Steve Prefontaine and Alberto Salazar. His teams won four NCAA track and field championships, finished second twice, and coached 44 all-Americans and 19 Olympians. He is credited with turning the college town of Eugene, Oregon, into the running capital of the world.

    With a commanding presence, Bowerman overlooked no detail, even hand-crafting his athletes’ shoes. He created the first lightweight, outsole shoe from some latex, leather, glue, and his wife’s waffle iron. In 1964, he joined with Phil Knight--a middle-distance runner who ran for him in the late 1950’s--and each invested $500 into a company named Blue Ribbon Sports, selling initially 330 pairs of the shoes.

    They sought to develop athletic shoes that were lighter and with more traction than the old, longstanding designs. More innovations came, including the wedged heel, the cushioned midsole, and lightweight nylon tops--not to mention developing rubberized asphalt runways. Propelled by the waffle-soled shoes, astute marketing, and the 1970’s upsurge of interest in running and physical fitness, they built Nike, based in Beaverton, Oregon, into the world’s largest athletic shoe and sports apparel maker. It became a multi-billion-dollar company and recognized world-wide for its “swoosh” logo.

    The Medford Linebackers club honored him in the early 1970s when they built Bowerman Field on what’s now the North Medford campus. Giving back to the community, his foundation helped build or improve tracks at Medford’s North and South High Schools, the Hedrick and McLoughlin middle schools, and St. Mary’s. Receiving numerous honors during this time, he died at the age of 88 in 1999. 

    Sources: Greg Stiles, Bowerman among Medford’s greats,” Mail Tribune, September 28, 1999, at Bill Bowerman; The New York Times, “Obituaries: Bill Bowerman, 88, Nike Co-Founder, Dies,” December 27, 1999, at Additional Background; “National Distance Running Hall of Fame: Bill Bowerman,” at Track and Distance Running.

    CHARLOTTE

    State of emergency tonight (Thursday) in Charlotte. The town has a black police chief, the shooting officer was black, but will they blame this on Thomas Jefferson's legacy? Let me explain - When Linda and I visited Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home just outside Charlotte, NC earlier this summer, I couldn't help but detect a thinly veiled feeling of...well, embarrassment. If the tour guide mentioned Jefferson's brilliance, she then had to mention the slaves...often. It was if Charlotte didn't really want to scream from the rafters that they were home to Monticello, a little ashamed of their native son. They didn't sign directions on the freeway to Monticello much, either. However, they WERE happy to take our $50.


    LUBA SIDES WITH JACKSON COUNTY OVER MEDICAL POT

    Mail Tribune repoting that LUBA sides with Jackson County's rules which ban medical marijuana grows on land zoned Rural Residential. (Recreational grows were already banned by county law) You figure a lot of pro-big-government types prior to the rise of marijuana are discovering their love for small, limited government right about now? Whaddya' think about centralized land use planning by the state NOW, huh?

    Don't interpret that statement as expressing "schadenfreude" at the med pot grower's dilemma. It's more along the lines of how many on the left fail to see Senate Bill 100 and the ensuing land use bureaucratic hell hole for what it is...everyone ELSE deciding your property's best use. That dog chews up both the left and the right wing land owners.

    Was talking with Brad Bennington from the S. Oregon Builder's Association this morning and was astounded to learn that we didn't even have building codes here much before the early 1970's. Oh, heavens, people probably weren't able to LIVE back in those dark days...and we didn't have centralized land use planning either. What knuckle dragging deplorables we must have all been, until we received our salvation through the progressive regulatory tyrant state. Sucks to be us...

    BILL’S GUESTS FOR 9-22-16: CONSPIRACY THEORY THURSDAY:

    6:35: Dr. Kirk Kilpatrick, author of the book, “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Jihad,” joins the show.

    "Terrorism is not something we should just “deal with.”

    In a recent article on Townhall.com, Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, was reported to have said that terror attacks are “part and parcel of life in a big city,” just hours after the bombings in New York and New Jersey.

    This nonchalant attitude is exactly the problem America is facing with terrorism. Hillary refuses to acknowledge the seriousness of Jihad—a politically correct cloud continues to fogs our country at the expense of innocent American lives.

    Author and Jihad expert Kirk Kilpatrick is NOT apologizing for his politically incorrect attitude toward Jihad. In fact, he states in his upcoming new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Jihad(releasing September 26th) that political correctness is hurting us more than helping.

    Pre-order the book at Amazon.com.

    It started with a punch from Janis Joplin. It was 1968 and Shep Gordon had quit the job that had brought him to L.A. after only one day. He had about a month’s worth of cash in his pocket when he checked into a Hollywood motel. The first night, he tried to “rescue” a girl he thought was in distress. That was Janis, who punched him in the mouth. With the kind of serendipity that would mark the next five decades in a remarkable career, Gordon’s life as a legendary manager, agent, and producer was launched. Famous among the famous, Gordon came to wider public attention through Mike Myers’s “shagadelic rock doc” Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. Now, in THEY CALL ME SUPERMENSCH: A Backstage Pass to the Amazing Worlds of Film, Food, and Rock’n’Roll

    BREAKING - ANTI-GUN PORTLAND PASTOR WON'T BE CHARGED WITH GUN CRIME

    Apparently if you're a PDX anti-gun liberal and do an illegal gun transfer crime in Oregon, you have "Hillary Immunity" and DON'T go to jail! This is the Pastor Jeremy Lucas case - he won an AR-15 and planned to destroy it to make an anti-gun point, but left it for "safe keeping" with a friend. (Violating Sen. Bates' SB941 law) Apparently OSP "got the message" and said there was no evidence...after the pastor ADMITTED what he did. We'll talk with Kevin Starrett tomorrow about this. I'd imagine if a real firearms enthusiast did the same thing as Lucas, that he/she would be facing the perp walk.The story of the "non-charging" is at https://flashalert.net/id/OSPOre/97737


    UPDATE TO BIAS STORY AT SOUTH MEDFORD HIGH

    Statement from Medford 549C district:

    One of the primary roles of schools is to develop citizens who can participate in a democracy. In social studies courses, students often discuss and debate current events, some of which may be controversial and which may elicit strongly differing opinions. At the Medford School District, we value critical thinking and dialogue around such issues and believe they should be presented in a factual and unbiased manner. We have board policy supporting the obligation of teachers to relate the facts from both sides of an issue, and to clearly distinguish when expressions of personal opinion are being made.

    For clarification, ‘T-Charts’ are used in the instructional process to identify differences in opinions, compare and contrast exercises and so on. In this case, the ‘T-Chart’ written on the white board was used to record student comments during a pre-law course discussion.

    Further, teachers do have a right to express their personal opinions to the students in their classroom, up to the point at which their views may unduly influence the views or opinions of students and so long as the teacher indicates that their opinions are theirs alone and not the official position of the school district. When a teacher posts, somewhat permanently, a statement of political nature on a bulletin board, it may be deemed as an inappropriate expression of opinion and should not be posted unless all sides of the issue are posted. In this case, the principal asked the teacher to remove the sign and the teacher complied. However, it is acceptable (and, indeed, a contractually bargained for right under the collective bargaining agreement with the Medford School District) for teachers to interject what their own views are on topics during class discussions as long as all other views and opinions are heard, acknowledged and valued and that the teacher’s views do not dominate the conversation.

    The discussion of this issue has been beneficial for the school district so that we may clarify our roles as educators and to better define how free speech is honored and used approporiately in a public school setting.


    BIAS AT SOUTH MEDFORD HIGH?

    According to an email source, these pictures are from the "Intro to Law and World Studies" class. Dems on the "good" side, Republicans on the "bad" side of governance, BLM and more. Whaddya' think? Doubtful that this follows school policy for controversial subjects, but it could have been STUDENT input deciding what was good or bad...perhaps discussion points. If not, yet another reason to homeschool.

    Here's some of the email text:

    Good Afternoon  ~ 

    Please show your support to ensure South Medford High School hears public feedback regarding their teachers conduct. 

    Taxpayers money has NO room for the promotion of skewed political views (Brainwashing) our children in public classrooms. If you've friends or family associated with 549C School district / South Medford please ensure your and their voice is heard by forwarding the the numbers below the pictures. Medford School district policies are also attached in addition to controversial Issues.

     

     

    This is a later picture, after some students reportedly questioned the "Black Lives Matter" sign. Two more were added.

     

    UPDATE: We've received word from Medford 549C that Superintendent Shumate is aware, and definintely "on the case". He's looking into this issue, and will ensure that propoer Medford 549C policy is followed.
