Toledo City Hall has lowered the boom on an old downtown building – tenants must out by February 1st

What’s described as a dangerous building in downtown Toledo may have met the end of its life expectancy there at 160 North Main Street.  City inspectors and others performed what they called a thorough exam as to the safety of anyone being inside the building, much less spending nights there.

Downtown Toledo Hotel – 160 North Main Street

City officials took a tour of the hotel and were somewhat overwhelmed by its rather dilapidated condition. They took note of worn electrical wiring, the presence of flammable liquids, rubbish, rags, waste oils, gasoline and other flammables that could easily catch fire or pose a danger to the safety of the building including human life since there is a number of tenants already in the building, according to its owner.  Inspectors said they saw filthy and unsanitary conditions which could easily cause the spread of contagious and/or infectious diseases.  Inspectors also noticed that the building is in such a condition that it poses a considerable danger to its occupants not to mention the danger to people in other buildings in the downtown, near 160 North Main.

City inspectors and other city workers are recommending that the Toledo City Council determine that the entire building is too dangerous to occupy not to mention other possible violations of the Oregon Fire Code.  But there’s always a chance that such a building could be rehabilitated to legal levels.

We’ll see how this whole issue plays out.

In Gratitude:

Friends and members of MPG were saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Ballard on Jan. 5 of this new year, 2022.  Most of the MPG veteran hikers knew the Ballards, Jim and his wife Nancye.  For years, we either hiked alongside of them both or tagged along on one of the wide-ranging hikes that they led– from local hikes to camping in the far reaches of the Olympics.  Several of us joined up with an overnight volunteer work party the two of them organized.  Jim and Nancye worked as a team in leading several National Hikes for Sierra Club as well. 

Though it is obvious much of what Jim did with MPG was in partnership with his wife, his presenting of background and history on the hikes they led indicated his interest in the history of our local area in general.  And it was that interest that drew him to the fascinating progression of history represented by Thompson’s Mill in Shedd.  He became president of the Thompson’s Mill Preservation Society and was helpful in coordinating tours to the mill, including at least one tour taken by the Marys Peak Group.

For Jim’s role of drawing people into the natural world as leader and educator and for his many years of friendship on the trail, MPG is grateful. To his dear wife Nancye, a former ExCom member and Educational Outings Chair in addition to her years as hike leader alongside her husband, our sincere condolences.

New federal data: Oregon #2 in country for addiction; falls to 50th in access to treatment

Alcohol and drug addiction – deaths soar during the pandemic

Portland, OR—New 2020 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, reveals:

  • Oregon now ranks 2nd in the country for substance use disorder—up from 4th in 2019—with 18.22% of the population suffering from addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. That’s nearly 1 in 5 Oregonians.

  • Oregon fell to 50th in access to treatment, with 18.08% of Oregonians needing but not receiving treatment.

  • Alcohol is by far Oregon’s biggest addiction problem, with a whopping 12.43% or about 420,000 Oregonians suffering from alcohol use disorder. Oregon ranks 5th nationally in alcohol addiction.

  • Oregon ranks 1st in prescription opioid misuse (4.46%, or 150,000 Oregonians), a 2% decrease from 2019.

  • Oregon ranks 1st in methamphetamine use (1.93%, or 65,000 Oregonians), a 53% or 23,000-person increase from 2019.

Additionally, the state’s Chief Medical Examiner, Sean Hurst, recently testified (1:19:30) to the Oregon Legislature that between 2019 and 2020:

Alcohol-related deaths in Oregon increased 73%.

  • Drug overdoses were up 39%. 

  • Preliminary 2021 data (the first six months) suggest that addiction-related deaths in the second year of the pandemic will outpace the first year.

Prior to the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that six Oregonians die each day from alcohol-related causes, and the Oregon Health Authority estimated there were one to two fatal drug overdoses each day.

“I felt sick when I saw these numbers, because behind every number is a name—somebody’s son or sister or husband,” said Mike Marshall, executive director of Oregon Recovers. “It’s extra painful because virtually all of these deaths were preventable. It’s been four years since the Governor declared addiction a public health crisis, and two years since the Alcohol & Drug Policy Commission delivered to her a strategic plan to fix it. But Governor Brown continues to ignore our addiction crisis and has taken no action to implement the plan. We can’t allow more inaction to keep taking Oregon in the wrong direction. We need to fully fund the addiction recovery strategic plan now.” 

At the direction of state lawmakers, the Alcohol & Drug Policy Commission (ADPC) consulted more than 150 stakeholders over two years to develop the addiction recovery strategic plan—a comprehensive continuum of addiction services to match the scale and urgency of Oregon’s addiction crisis. Though the plan was completed in 2020, the Governor has made no move to fund its implementation.

Many Oregonians and lawmakers believe that Measure 110 funding will help address the addiction crisis by expanding access to treatment. But Measure 110 funding cannot be used for prevention, nor will it fund any new treatment beds. Instead, funding is limited to use for referrals to treatment (which often just put people on already long waitlists), critically needed harm reduction, and other important recovery supports—but will not reduce addiction rates nor increase access to traditional treatment.

In addition to the new state data, nationally, doctors are reporting “astronomical,” “off the charts” increases in alcohol-related liver disease—cases are up 30% since the pandemic began. And previous research shows that on top of the human toll, excessive alcohol consumption cost Oregon taxpayers $4.8 billion in 2019. Each alcoholic drink sold in Oregon costs $2.08 in criminal justice, healthcare, lost work productivity, and social service costs.

Virtual Walks with Ease – February 8 through March 17th

Don and Ann Davis Park – Newport

The Newport Parks and Recreation Department 60+ Activity Center in partnership with Samaritan Health Services and the National Recreation and Parks Department will be offering a 12-session virtual “Walk with Ease” program beginning Tuesday, February 8th. Classes will be offered via Zoom Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:00 a.m. – noon.

“Walk with Ease” is a free walking program for anyone who wants to move more, reduce pain, and engage safely and comfortably in a gentle walking program. Join us for camaraderie and virtual support twice per week then walk and roll when it is convenient for you.

The Walk with Ease program, developed by the Arthritis Foundation, is proven to help reduce pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and offers benefits for people managing other chronic conditions. Walking is one of the safest and most beneficial forms of exercise for most people with arthritis and other chronic health conditions. It is safer and puts less stress on your body than most other forms of aerobic exercise – the kind that builds stamina and boosts cardiovascular fitness. Walking is an especially good exercise choice if you are older or have been less active.

This virtual “Walk with Ease” program will be facilitated by trained instructor, Bryn McCornack, who will provide information and tools you can use to help manage chronic condition symptoms and improve your quality of life. You will learn the benefits of how small increases in physical activity can result in big benefits to your health.

To register online, go to www.newportoregon.gov/sc. A Zoom link will be sent to all who register for the class. If you have limited or no “Zoom” experience, contact the 60+ Activity Center at 541-265-9617 to arrange for a tutorial by phone or in person at 20 SE 2nd Street, Newport, OR.

Structure Fire on Ferry Slip Road, Newport

At 8:43 PM Monday night Newport Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a fire in a storage unit in Aquarium Village located at 3101 SE Ferry Slip Road. Upon arrival, fire units observed dark smoke coming from the rear of the building.  Fire crews established a water supply and called for additional resources.

No injuries were reported.

Newport Fire Department received mutual aid response from Depoe Bay Fire District, Toledo Fire Department, Siletz Valley Fire District, Central Oregon Coast Fire & Rescue District & Seal Rock Fire District. Pacific West Ambulance, Newport Police Department, and Central Lincoln PUD provided additional assistance.

Another good save by the Newport Fire Department with a small army of firefighters from around the county who responded quickly to Newport Fire’s call for mutual aid.

So many people refuse to give strong understanding to Omicron. Insufficient curiosity kills…

Omicron Virus
Spreads fast but not as deadly as earlier versions of Covid-19

Oregon reports 10,947 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 20 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 20 new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 5,936, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 10,947 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 570,892.

OHA briefs media on rising hospitalizations, surging cases

Health Officer and State Epidemiologist Dean Sidelinger, M.D., M.S.Ed., briefed media today on the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although cases and hospitalizations are surging, Sidelinger spoke about the difference Oregonians are making by wearing masks, indoors and outdoors, by restricting gatherings and by staying home when sick or upon a positive test.

“There is some light at the end of this very dark tunnel. The recent modeling suggests that cases could peak within the next week or so with hospitalizations – a lagging indicator – peaking in the following weeks,” he said.

More importantly, the forecast shows the difference everyone in Oregon is making by continuing to take preventive steps. The projected peak for hospitalizations is about 1,500 in early February.

Without the widespread adherence the state has seen from Oregonians, the curve would be much steeper – about 1,900 hospitalizations.

“The critical difference here in Oregon is you,” Sidelinger said.

His full comments can be found here. A recording of the briefing is here.
