Oregon Health Authority (OHA) officials remind the public that viruses don’t discriminate – and neither should we. The COVID-19 virus spreads like the flu, when someone who is sick coughs or sneezes close to another person (close means within about 6 feet). No group of people is more likely to get COVID-19 or spread it to others. “I know it’s difficult to learn that we are seeing more active community spread of COVID-19, but this is something we’ve been expecting,” said Dean Sidelinger, M.D., M.S.Ed, State Health Officer and Epidemiologist, OHA Public Health Division. “It’s a good reminder to take steps to protect yourself, and vulnerable friends and family members, by (DO THIS) washing your hands, covering your coughs and sneezes, and staying home and away from others if you’re sick.” Officials continue to urge all Oregonians to take steps to protect themselves, their families, and those who are most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. Those considered “high risk” include adults 60 and older, or anyone with a serious health condition, including lung or heart problems, kidney disease, diabetes, or anyone who has a suppressed immune system. People vulnerable to complications should follow federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to stay home as much as possible and avoid gatherings. Every resident should take THESE BASIC STEPS to protect themselves and those most at risk: Never visit a hospital or long-term-care facility if you have a fever or cough. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces like bathrooms, desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, faucet handles, toys and cell phones. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Stay home and away from others if you are ill. After someone contracts COVID-19, illness usually develops within 14 days. Symptoms mirror those of the flu, including fever, cough, runny nose, headache, sore throat and general feelings of illness. Stay informed – Oregon response: The Oregon Health Authority leads the state response. United States response: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention leads the U.S. response. Global response: The World Health Organization guides the global response.

State Releases Final Rate Decisions
Salem — Small businesses and individuals who buy their own health insurance can now see the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation’s final rate decisions for 2021 health insurance plans. The division reviews and approves rates through a detailed and transparent process before they can be charged to policyholders. The final decisions are based on the result of a rigorous review, which included public hearings and public comment. The division published preliminary decisions last month before the hearings. These hearings provided an opportunity for the public, health insurance companies, and the division to further review and analyze the preliminary decisions. “We continue to be encouraged by the results of the Oregon Reinsurance Program,” said Andrew Stolfi, insurance commissioner and Department of Consumer and Business Services director. “It has led to lower rate increases each year, more carriers expanding their coverage statewide, and more health insurance options for Oregonians.” Open enrollment for 2021 plans is from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15, 2020. Individual market – The division has issued final decisions for six companies in the individual market with average rate changes ranging from a 3.5 percent decrease to an 11.1 percent increase, for a weighted average of 1.8 percent. Under the decisions, Silver Standard Plan premiums for a 40-year-old in Portland would range from $425 to $466 a month. The rate changes are companywide averages based on premiums for plans before financial assistance through the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace is taken into account. All Oregonians who purchase their own insurance are encouraged to apply for assistance through the Marketplace for 2021, even if they did not qualify last year. Approximately 72 percent of Oregonians who enrolled through the Marketplace for health coverage in 2020 qualified for help paying their premium. People who received help with the costs of their health insurance paid on average $138 a month. Small group market – In the small group market, the division has issued final decisions for nine companies with average rates ranging from a 1.1 percent decrease to a 7.0 percent increase, for a weighted average of 3.7 percent. Under the decisions, Silver Standard Plan premiums for a 40-year-old in Portland would range from $335 to $405 a month. See our chart for a full list of final decisions – Facts for 2021: All 36 Oregon counties will have at least two on-exchange options and at least three total options for its residents. The Oregon Reinsurance Program continues to help stabilize the market – lowering rates by 6 percent for the third straight year. COVID-19 was not considered as part of 2021 rates because it is too early to understand the effect of COVID-19 relief efforts. Proposed final decisions for each carrier can be found at www.oregonhealthrates.org. Statewide premium comparison tables for ages 21, 40, and 60 will be posted online later this month.

Fee Free Day on Public Lands
WASHINGTON – The Great American Outdoors Act recently went into law, which will significantly help address the historically underfunded, multi-billion-dollar deferred maintenance backlog at our national parks and public lands. In celebration of this historic achievement, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt announced that entrance fees paid by visitors coming to lands managed by the Department will be waived on August 5, 2020. Entrance fees will be waived at all fee collecting public lands at the National Park Service (NPS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service). The Department holds fee-free days throughout the year to encourage visitation and appreciation for America’s public lands. On fee-free days, site-specific standard amenity and day-use fees at recreation sites and areas will be waived for the specified dates. Other fees, such as overnight camping, cabin rentals, group day use, and use of special areas, will remain in effect.
Rare Japanese American 16MM Movies
“There’s no such thing as a bad home movie. These mini-underground opuses are revealing, scary, joyous, always flawed, filled with accidental art and shout out from attics and closets all over the world to be seen again.” — John Waters. Portland, OR – August 4, 2020 – The Oregon Historical Society is excited to announce that fifteen reels of 16mm home movies, shot by the Tsuboi family, are now available for viewing on the Oregon Historical Society Digital Collections website. Teruo Tsuboi ran, with his older brother, the Tsuboi Brothers store at 315 Burnside Street, Portland. The store sold Western style clothing, jewelry, and after World War II, added an optometrist exam room. The films document the day-to-day activities of a Japanese American family living in the Pacific Northwest over multiple generations and contain rare scenes of family life both before and after World War II. Films include, in part: family visits to the Pendleton Round-Up, drives through the snow in downtown Portland, Rose Festival parades, a Japanese baseball team at Civic Stadium, family members posing near Mt. Hood, trips to and from Japan via ship, a brief glimpse of the ruins of the Minidoka incarceration camp, a trip to Los Angeles in 1931, and various Pacific Northwest vacations and scenes from family life. The Japanese American Museum of Oregon has been instrumental in identifying and promoting these films. Director of Collections and Exhibits Lucy Capehart notes, “The Tsuboi films provide a magical window into Portland’s past. The films also show that Japanese Americans have been part of Portland’s social fabric for generations; participating in the Rose Festival parade, riding a bike down a neighborhood street, and playing baseball.” Teruo (1889–1965) and Suma Tsuboi (1889–1977) emigrated from Okayama, Japan, to Portland, Oregon, in the early twentieth century. They had four children (called Nisei, or the children of Japanese immigrants born in the United States): Teruhisa “Ted,” Akiko, Sachiko, and Kazuko. When 16mm film first hit the consumer market in the late 1920s, it was available mainly to those who could afford the relatively high cost of film and camera. As 16mm became more affordable, with the added ability to shoot in color, it became the main method of documenting twentieth century family life, before being displaced by 8/S8mm, magnetic videotape, and digital video. For more information on efforts being made to preserve the experiences of Asian Americans through home movies, please visit the Memories to Light project by the Center for Asian American Media. The Center for Home Movies is another great resource that documents the importance of collecting and preserving home movies.

ODFW’s Williamson River Boat Ramp to Close Temporarily
Klamath Falls, Ore. – The Williamson River Boat Ramp in Chiloquin will be closed for construction starting Aug. 24, 2020 until a new boat ramp and site improvements are finished. No walk-in, vehicle or boating access will be available during construction and the site will be fully closed to the public. Contractors anticipate the construction will be completed by October but progress is weather-dependent, therefore, duration of the closure could change. The construction project will remove the outdated, inoperable and unsafe boat slide and replace it with a concrete boat ramp as well as an update to the parking lot and restrooms. Improvements are being funded with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) funds along with an Oregon State Marine Board facility grant. An announcement via news release will be made when the site re-opens to the public or you can call the local Klamath ODFW office (541-883-5732) for more information. Unfortunately, this project will affect anglers during a busy time of year but due to permit conditions, in-water work timing and compliance this was the only time ODFW could accomplish these much-needed site improvements.
OPRD & National Register Program
Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is extending the date to accept public comments on proposed changes to rules governing how the state protects important historical places until 5 p.m. Aug. 31, 2020. The extension comes with a new opportunity on Aug. 18 for local and tribal governments to learn more about the proposed rules and comment on them. The state is proposing updates to the Oregon Administrative Rules that govern how the state administers the federal National Register of Historic Places Program, which lists buildings, districts and other sites important to local, state or national history. The Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) — an office of OPRD — administers the local program, which is run by the National Park Service. In Oregon, 2,065 properties — including 133 historic districts located across the state’s 36 counties and representing many aspects of the state’s rich history — are now listed in the National Register. In the last several years, several high-profile, controversial nominations exposed problems with the National Register process, including determining owner consent and public involvement. Proposed changes seek to establish a fair and transparent process in alignment with federal requirements. In addition to extending the comment period, OPRD will have an informational webinar at 10 a.m. Aug. 18 for government staff and leaders to learn more about the proposed rules and potential impact on communities, local governments and tribes. The webinar will be open to the public and end with an opportunity to provide public comment. Register to attend at oregon.gov/oprd/PRP/Pages/PRP-rulemaking.aspx. “Local governments and Native American tribes are a critical partner in the national register program,” said Ian Johnson, associate deputy state historic preservation officer. The Oregon SHPO provides local governments participating in the federal Certified Local Government (CLG) Program grants to list properties in the federal National Register of Historic Places. Using SHPO grant funds, the City of Jacksonville listed the Britt Gardens and the City of Gresham listed the Roy E. and Hildur L. Amundesen House in the National Register. Local governments may comment on National Register nominations. Local governments participating in the CLG program may object to a nomination, ending the nomination process unless appealed. The revised rule includes updated procedures for hearing notifications, including specific provisions to notify CLGs, as well as a provision that allows the SHPO to coordinate outreach efforts with local governments. The revised rule also now includes provisions for comments from Oregon’s nine federally-recognized Native American tribes. OPRD will accept public comments on the proposed changes through 5 p.m. Aug. 31, 2020. Comments can be made online, in writing or via email: Online: oregon.gov/oprd/PRP/Pages/PRP-rulemaking.aspx In writing: Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, attn. Katie Gauthier, 725 Summer St NE, Suite C, Salem OR 97301 Email: OPRD.email@example.com Informational, online webinar to discuss potential impacts of proposed rules on local governments, communities and federally-recognized Native American tribes. The webinar is set for 10-11:30 a.m. Aug. 18. Register at oregon.gov/oprd/PRP/Pages/PRP-rulemaking.aspx. After reviewing public comments, OPRD staff plan to present a final recommended rule for consideration to the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission. The full text of the proposed change is available online: oregon.gov/oprd/PRP/Pages/PRP-rulemaking.aspx Properties listed in the National Register are: Recognized as significant to the nation, state or community; Considered in the planning of federal or federally assisted projects; Eligible for federal and state tax benefits; Eligible for historic preservation grants when funds are available; Eligible for leniency in meeting certain building code requirements. National Register listing does not place any restrictions on a property at the federal level, unless property owners choose to participate in tax benefit or grant programs. State law requires local governments to review the demolition or relocation of all properties listed in the National Register at a public hearing, and allows local governments to add additional regulations following a formal public process.

Oregon now compliant with federal Real ID Act
SALEM – The Department of Homeland Security notified Gov. Kate Brown on Monday that Oregon is in compliance with the federal Real ID Act. As of Oct. 1, 2021, the Transportation Security Administration will require identification that complies with the Real ID Act to pass through airport security when boarding a domestic flight. This date was moved forward one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The October 2021 federal ID requirements also will apply when entering a secure federal facility, such as a military base. You can continue to use your standard Oregon driver license or ID card for domestic air travel and other secure federal locations until October 2021. Even after that, your standard Oregon license or ID card will continue to be valid for everything else that you use it for today. You may already have what you need to board domestic flights in October 2021 and beyond – such as a passport or other ID acceptable by the Transportation Security Administration. Find out what is acceptable ID for air travel at TSA.gov. How to get Real ID – First, find out if you want the Real ID option with DMV’s decision tool at Oregon.gov/RealID. If you do want the option, the website has a second tool explaining the requirements and producing a checklist of documents you’ll need to bring with you when you visit a DMV office. The Real ID option also has an additional fee of $30 – in addition to an original application, renewal or replacement fee. If you want the Real ID option, please consider delaying your visit to DMV as long as possible or getting a passport and/or passport card instead. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a long backlog of customers and it will take months to catch up. You will need an appointment for any type of driver license or ID card issuance, including Real ID. You can schedule an appointment online at DMV2U.Oregon.gov. To keep customers safe, DMV offices are open only for services that require in-person visits. This limits the number of people inside an office to help maintain safe social distancing. You cannot get a Real ID card online because the act requires you to bring certain documents with you and for you to get a new photograph for your card. You cannot use DMV’s card replacement option online to change to a Real ID card or to make any other change to your card. Six things to know if you want the Real ID option – If your card’s expiration is a year or more ahead, please consider waiting as long as possible to get the Real ID option. Airport security checkpoints will not require additional ID until October 2021. Consider getting or renewing a passport instead. It’s valid for 10 years. If you already have a passport, you can get a passport card that fits in your wallet for a lower cost than a Real ID license or ID card. If you want the Real ID option, please be aware that your appointment will be weeks away due to the COVID-19 backlog at DMV offices. Once you have an appointment, please use the document checklist tools at Oregon.gov/RealID so you are prepared for your appointment with everything you need. If you need to call DMV, please be aware that the number of calls is overwhelming the phone system. If you get a busy signal, please try again after a while. Please do not use autodial because that is part of the reason the phone system is overwhelmed. If you need a drive test, you cannot schedule one at DMV at this time. You can find third-party drive test services here: Oregon Class C Drive Testing Businesses. More information – Learn more about Real ID on our website at Oregon.gov/realid.
Missing Person Douglas Co.
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. – Deputies have located the body of 22 year-old Austin Allen Wilkison. Wilkison was reported missing to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office by concerned family members. Through the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Wilkison was possibly despondent and could possibly be in the mountains near Glide. Search and Rescue Teams along with Timber Deputies began searching for Wilkison. At approximately 3:15 PM, deputies received information that Wilkison’s vehicle had been previously observed by a bear hunter in the area of the Canton Creek Campground near Steamboat during the course of the weekend. The hunter saw the missing person flyer and contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to the area and located Wilkison’s vehicle and him inside. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office notified Wilkison’s family as well as the Douglas County Medical Examiner’s Office who is conducting a death investigation. There is nothing suspicious about Wilkison’s death at this time.
Prolific Southern Oregon Drug Dealer Sentenced
MEDFORD, Ore.—The leader of a southern Oregon drug trafficking organization responsible for distributing large quantities of methamphetamine and heroin in and around Klamath Falls, Oregon was sentenced to federal prison today, announced Billy J. Williams, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon. Rogelio Gomez-Arias, 24, of Klamath Falls, was sentenced to 135 months in federal prison and five years’ supervised release. According to court documents, in May 2018, southern Oregon law enforcement began investigating Gomez-Arias’ trafficking organization. Investigators learned than an individual in Mexico supplied the organization with methamphetamine in exchange for cash and firearms, and instructed it to transport narcotics to other west coast cities and beyond. In August 2019, investigators conducted three controlled buys with Gomez-Arias, purchasing a total of three pounds of methamphetamine. During these purchases, Gomez-Arias directed other members of his organization and openly explained his history of drug dealing. He explained in detail how he started selling small quantities of drugs and then moved up to ounces and, later, pounds. He bragged of making $500,000 in a single week and transporting drugs to other cities, including Seattle and New York. This information was corroborated when a co-conspirator was stopped on his way to New York with more than 700 grams of fentanyl. On October 9, 2019, a coordinated, multi-agency law enforcement operation was conducted to dismantle Gomez-Arias’ drug trafficking organization. Four federal search warrants were executed in Klamath Falls and Dorris, California. Investigators seized more than 37 pounds of methamphetamine, 440 grams of heroin, 14 firearms, and nearly $50,000 in cash and arrested five co-conspirators, including Gomez-Arias. On October 2, 2019, a federal grand jury in Medford returned a six-count indictment charging Gomez-Arias and three co-conspirators with conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and distribution of a controlled substance. A fourth co-conspirator was charged by criminal complaint. On July 30, 2020, Gomez-Arias pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Three of Gomez-Arias’ co-conspirators—Alexis Chavez-Franco, 23; Domingo Matias-Hernandez, 36; and Juan Rodriguez-Ramirez, 62—remain in custody pending trial. A fourth co-conspirator, Irving Beas Ceballos, 35, is on pre-trial release. During sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Michael J. McShane ordered Gomez-Arias to forfeit the U.S. currency seized and the firearms used to facilitate his crimes. This case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Basin Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (BINET) and the Siskiyou Unified Major Investigation Team (SUMIT). It was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon. This case was brought as part of the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program, the centerpiece of the department’s strategy for reducing the availability of drugs in the U.S. OCDETF was established in 1982 to mount a comprehensive attack on drug trafficking by disrupting and dismantling major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. Today, OCDETF combines the resources and expertise of its member federal agencies in coordination with state and local law enforcement.

UO release – SAN FRANCISCO – Following an announcement three weeks ago to play only conference games during the 2020 season, the Pac-12 unveiled a 10-game slate that is scheduled to begin on Saturday, Sept. 26, with all 12 schools playing five games at home and five on the road. Oregon’s originally scheduled nine Pac-12 opponents remained the same with the addition of a road game at Utah to close the regular season on Saturday, Dec. 5. Since the Ducks had five road games in the original nine-game schedule, their Sept. 26 showdown against Colorado was flipped to Autzen Stadium. “We appreciate the efforts and genuine care of the PAC-12 Conference and of our fellow member schools as we all navigate together the safest path for a return to competition this fall,” Oregon Athletic Director Rob Mullens said. “Our top priority remains the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, staff, and fans, and we will continue to rely on the advice and direction of Lane County Public Health, the Oregon Health Authority, and the PAC-12 Medical Advisory Group. The 2020 football schedule released today is built to maximize flexibility, and as more information becomes available about all of our 2020 fall sports, we will share it with our fans.” The 125th season in Oregon football history is scheduled to begin with the aforementioned home game against Colorado, which will mark the first home conference opener to start a season since 2008 against Washington. It also marks the second consecutive season the Ducks have hosted the Buffaloes. Week two will bring Oregon’s first road game at Washington State on Saturday, Oct. 3, which will be quickly followed by a home game against Arizona State on Friday, Oct. 9. For the first time since 1945, Oregon’s rivalry game against Oregon State is not scheduled to be played in November or December. The Ducks will make the short trip to Corvallis on Saturday, Oct. 17, for the 124th meeting between the two programs. Following its only scheduled bye week, Oregon will resume the 10-game schedule with its third home game against Washington on Saturday, Oct. 31. The Ducks and Huskies have played back-to-back games decided by four points or less, with the Ducks taking both contests. The second half of the five game schedule will feature three road games, at California (Nov. 7), at Arizona (Nov. 20) and at Utah (Dec. 5). The showdown at Arizona will be Oregon’s second Friday game of the season, marking the first time since 2015 its had two non-Saturday regular season games. Sandwiched between the road game at Cal and at Arizona is a Saturday, Nov. 14th, tilt against USC at Autzen Stadium. It will be the Trojans’ third trip to Eugene since 2011. Oregon will look to avenge its last loss at Autzen Stadium when it closes out its home slate against Stanford on Saturday, Nov. 28. The regular season finale at Utah will be a rematch of the 2019 Pac-12 Championship Game. Games that are unable to be played on their scheduled date can be made up in their bye weeks or in Week 12 (December 12), with the Pac-12 Football Championship Game now slated for December 18 or 19. The Pac-12 Football Championship Game will be held in a home-hosted model for 2020, with the Pac-12 and partners Allegiant Stadium and the Raiders, Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and MGM Resorts International agreeing to commence hosting of the Championship Game at Allegiant Stadium in 2021 for its two-year run in Las Vegas in order to ensure a successful launch of the inaugural event.
