Around 13,000 contested ballots WERE NOT COUNTED in the November 4th election in Oregon.  Voters have until WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 19th to fix any problems with contested ballots.

A recount is automatically triggered if the margin on any item is within 4,000 votes.  This could have an impact on Measure 92, where the margin between No votes and Yes votes is around 7,500 at last count.

KBOO spoke with Tony Green of the Oregon Secretary of State's office for more on the 13,000 contested ballots.

ARE YOU ON THE LIST? - The Statesman-Journal has made it easy to search the full list of contested voters.

Colorado students challenge conservative school board

Mon, 11/10/2014
A dozen students in Colorado were kicked out of a local school board meeting for protesting what they are calling the censorship of history.  The conservative school board in Jefferson County Colorado had been considering a measure that would limit history classes, including Advanced Placement History in high schools, from learning about certain parts of U-S history.

The school board stated that all books and materials in the classroom should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights.

In addition, all educational Materials should quote “not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”

A dozen students protesting this policy were escorted out of last night’s school board meeting while reciting the pledge of allegiance and holding up books.
Ashlyn Artemis Maher, one of the students who engaged in the protest, spoke with KBOO about her decision to protest.

A coalition of peace activists blockaded an Israeli ship in Tampa this weekend, including a direct action by Dezeray Lyn, who locked her neck to a parked car with a u-lock.

The action in Tampa is the latest in a series of protests known as ‘Block the Boat’.
Groups have successfully blocked or delayed Israeli ships in Oakland California, Seattle Washington, Longview Washington, and Vancouver BC.
The Tampa blockade is targeting the Israeli-owned vessel ‘Zim Savannah’, which is owned by Zim Integrated Shipping Services.

Protesters say the blockades are a pressure tactic aimed at trying to get Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian land.

Zim Integrated Shipping Services is the largest cargo shipping company in Israel.
For more on the port blockade, KBOO spoke with Dezeray Lyn, who was arrested for her action in Tampa.

(Longer version of interviews for this news story can also be found here: http://kboo.fm/content/debateonportlandmercurysandotherpaperspostiononmeasu)

As next Tuesday’s election approaches, a number of ballot measure races in Oregon look like they’re going to be very close.
 One of the more contested initiatives, Measure 92, would require labeling of foods with genetically engineered ingredients.
It’s gotten added media attention because of large financial contributions from chemical and agricultural corporations, making it the most expensive initiative campaign in Oregon history.
The measure has also gotten mixed endorsements in the media.
The KBOO station Board of Directors recently approved an endorsement of measure 92.
most talk show hosts who have discussed the issue have come out in favor of labelling and “Yes on 92” signs are prominently displayed in KBOO’s front windows.
But The Oregonian has come out against it, as did Willamette Week and the Portland Mercury, while The Skanner newspaper supports the measure.
Earlier today, KBOO’s Paul Roland spoke with The Mercury’s News Editor Dennis Theriault, who addressed the question of why he decided to oppose measure 92 on behalf of the Mercury:
 
KBOO also spoke with Julia Degraw of the Oregon Right to Know campaign, the promoter of “Yes on 92,” to get their comments on the local newspapers’ decisions to oppose the measure.

Health workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola

Mon, 10/20/2014
In mid-September, Dr. Lisa Brosseau and Dr. Rachael Jones wrote a commentary for CIDRAP News, a service of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy at the University of Minnesota, titled “Health Workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola.”
Brosseau and Jones are professors in the School of Public Health, Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
Their article was picked up by some right-wing bloggers, who exaggerated and misattributed some of its contents, adding fuel to the fire of sensationalistic media coverage of the current Ebola outbreak, as well as to the politicization of the issue during this campaign season.
On October 16, CIDRAP News published a “Response to statements falsely attributed to CIDRAP regarding Ebola transmission,” while standing by the scientific soundness and importance of the contents of the Commentary.
The central issue of Brosseau and Jones’ commentary, regarding the need to protect health workers and aides from possible exposure to Ebola via infectious aerosol particles, is a critical one that has been largely ignored by the medical establishment.
 
On Saturday, KBOO’s Paul Roland spoke by phone with Dr. Brosseau to get a fuller understanding of the issues raised by the article.
