7:10 Anthony Smith, NFIB Oregon State Director, 5
Will Oregon Rally to Help its Small Businesses This Saturday?
“Once again, our small businesses need some help to get them through tough times,” said Anthony Smith, Oregon state director for NFIB. “Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to do just that. Realistically though, they’re going to need our support for more than just one day this year. This is especially true for gyms, bars, restaurants, and other businesses that are currently shut down or operating in a limited capacity due to the governor’s Freeze order.
“If we want our small businesses to survive the pandemic, we have to buy them some more time. They can make it with our help, so this holiday season, give the gift that gives twice by shopping small.”
Smith recommended five ways we can all help:
- Check to see if local small businesses are open to in-person shopping, and pay them a visit if you feel comfortable (following applicable safety requirements, of course)
- Call your favorite local merchants to place an order for curbside pickup or delivery
- See if local small businesses are selling online by visiting their social media pages or websites
- Buy gift cards/certificates from local small businesses for yourself or as gifts to others
- Order takeout or delivery from local restaurants, either directly or through your favorite mobile app

Will the Real Joe Biden Please Stand up on Health Care?
By Chad Savage, M.D.
October 28, 2020
America’s voters and medical patients deserve straight talk from Joe Biden about his health care policies. Throughout the Covid-19 crisis of 2020, health care providers have persevered to ensure care remained available in the face of great uncertainty. However, on matters of health care policy the former Vice President’s equivocation presents concerns for what health care policies America will get along with a Biden White House victory.
Throughout the campaign, Biden has offered little in terms of a concrete policy agenda and has explicitly avoided being pinned down on hot topic items. For example, when asked about court-packing, Biden told reporters “you’ll know my position on court-packing the day after the election.” He has done the same on health care, where on the one hand he dedicated his opening statement in September’s debate to attacking the Trump administration’s efforts to unravel the Affordable Care Act. On the other hand, Biden has expressed support for the “principle” of a Medicare for All-type system that inserts government between the patient-physician relationship, and he refused to say whether or not he would veto a bill passed by Congress.

I Know Sidney Powell. She Is Telling the Truth
Back in 2014, I worked freelance for a public relations firm in New York City. It was there that I met an unusual woman. I didn’t know many lawyers or Texans, but I knew better than to chalk up her qualities to either her profession or her home. It’s rare that I encounter someone who I’m afraid to argue with, because of her sheer brain power and towering personal rectitude. But this was such a person.
This woman had quite a career behind her. An evangelical Christian, she’d been a federal prosecutor — and quit, outraged at the corruption she saw among her colleagues. She did more than quit. Horrified by prosecutors hiding exculpatory evidence and targeting the innocent because of their personal politics, she became a defense attorney, to help people fight the feds. Read the Rest HERE
8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers “Where Past Meets Present”
The Lost Frenchman’s Mine (and Gold Deposits)
By Dennis Powers
The Frenchman Louis Belfils, a 25-year-old watchmaker, lived in the early 1850s in Jacksonville. When he needed more business, he saddled up his mule and rode to the mining camps, where the hard-living prospectors were as rough on their pocket watches. Belfils was returning to Jacksonville in 1856 from Sailor Diggings (now abandoned with little remains and located in Josephine County).
He was working his way up an old American Indian trail that wound around Tannen Mountain, north of the Oregon-California border. His mule suddenly froze and an arrow “whooshed by,” just missing Belfil’s nose by inches. Panicked, he dug his heals into his mule to get into a panicked, awkward gallop.
In his haste, Louis lost the trail; however, the Indians on foot had momentarily lost him. Belfils rode all night in heading west. When the sun finally rose, he was perched on a steep mountain ledge with live oak trees on its top. Reaching down, he spotted “Gold!” that was high-grade quartz and littered around him with the chunks of gold. Looking down, he spotted the Indians who were now climbing toward him, having followed his trail.
He jammed a golden rock into his pocket, jumped on his mule, and headed west across the Siskiyous until he reached the worn Happy Camp Trail along Indian Creek and to final safety in California. Once back in Jacksonville, the Frenchman showed his rock to Cornelius Beekman, the to-be banker, who bought it for $100 and for one-half interest, staked Belfils’ search for the claim. Louis spent three years trying to find the ledge of gold—before finally abandoning the area with the legend of the Frenchman’s Mine left behind.
For those of us who hike on or off the trails of Southern Oregon, the legacy of gold mines and miners can been seen. From Ashland to Jacksonville, Gold Hill to outside Grants Pass, the evidence is there. Abandoned mining towns, such as Golden outside of Wolf Creek in Josephine County, are there to see and wonder about. Mining for gold took many forms over time: from hydraulic mining on Rogue River tributaries to panning for gold, surface digging, and then later into hard-rock mining with deep, long tunnels.
This continued for decades in Southern Oregon. For example, Jacksonville residents from the Great Depression and on, would dig mines in their backyards. The mine shafts typically measured about 4-by-6 feet, and miners would dig until they struck bedrock (typically 16 to 20 feet below ground there). Typically they used sluice boxes to work the dirt from lower levels. They could either sell the gold dust or even trade it for groceries, meals, and what they needed. Gas engines pumped out the waters in the holds in the mornings, so that they could dig further down.
Miners were not supposed to dig laterally beyond property limits, but that never stopped them, and the town experienced sunken roads and property for decades. In 1982 a hole up to 10 feet deep and approximately 12 by 30 feet opened up on Fourth Street just off California. Sunken grades and cave-ins, however, decreased as the years passed.
Abandoned mine shafts abound in the wilderness where the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has responsibility. You’ll find the warning signs when looking down a gaping hole. In fact, online sites indicate the locations of old mines to explore at your own risk with the GPS given to find a particular shaft. The BLM has listed some 1,900 abandoned mining “features” with over 425 abandoned hard-rock mines that have underground workings, many with vertical shafts or horizontal tunnels (known as adits).
Over time, the BLM has been plugging the most dangerous openings with everything from fill to polyurethane foam. In addition to BLM land, at least as many exist in national forests and on private lands in our area, as this author can attest to. Asking friends who live in very rural areas can lead to these discoveries—but be very careful in your search. This is a real part of our region’s history… with gold at near $1900/ounce still hidden in today’s fast-moving world.

8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers, “Where Past Meets Present”. Today’s history segment is the story behind “Heaven on Earth”.
Heaven on Earth Restaurant & Bakery
By Dennis Powers
Christine Jackson left San Diego and drove to Oregon in 1973; she was a 23-year-old mother with a 1-year-old child and a colt. She cleaned horse stalls for a real-estate agent in exchange for a place to live above the barn. The real estate agent then helped her acquire her restaurant, which Jackson started with 10 pounds of hamburger and located in a run-down building with a pot-bellied stove and outside rest rooms.
She opened in 1974 the “Heaven on Earth” restaurant in what “might have been an old feed store,” and expanded the dining area in the 1980s. With only a few employees, she grew her business on the “Word of God, generosity, hospitality, persistence, and faith,” as stated on its website.
The huge, age-scarred, beam buildings are located at Exit 86 in Azalea, off Interstate 5 approximately half-way between Grants Pass and Roseburg in Douglas County. Typically, one can smell sweet sugar cinnamon as soon as you step out of your car. The cash register divides a sit-down area from counter seating, and adjacent is the old griddle, about “4-by-3-feet, seasoned black and smooth from use.” Known throughout Oregon, that griddle holds a “tower of cinnamon buns,” baked fresh daily in the stone oven in front of the kitchen.
Christine enjoys helping others because, “I want people to look beyond themselves to see their talents.” As one example, she met a homeless person, Christopher Hastings, in May 2010 while handing out free coffee and dessert in Ashland on National Prayer Day. She next set up a produce stand near her restaurant for Hastings to run on weekends, with the goal of starting a farmers’ market. She paid him wages and provided all the supplies, including a variety of seasonal fruit to sell that she bought locally. Afterwards Christine continued to hire him off and on during the years.
Continuing this approach, Heaven on Earth Restaurant & Bakery offers paid training and on the job experience to help each employee reach their goals. It has offered scholarships to help its employees gain education.
Heaven on Earth has served food and baked sweets for decades. Note: “The family-sized cinnamon roll weighs in at 2 to 2 1/2 pounds and is big enough for a crowd,” according to one reviewer.” From truckers to tourists, Southern Oregonians to travelers, Christine and her family-owned restaurant stands out.
