As unauthorized foreigners continue to flood across the southern border, state officials continue to cast about for solutions. In normal times, the federal government would remedy the problem. But these are not normal times: The administration of President Joe Biden actually seems to be aiding the influx.

State officials are hampered by a Supreme Court doctrine called “implied federal preemption.” The courts use this doctrine to void some state laws as contradicting federal statutes, even when the federal statutes don’t explicitly override them.



For example, the Arizona Legislature adopted four measures to address illegal immigration. They were consistent with the text of federal immigration statutes. In fact, they sought to further the purpose of those statutes. Yet the Supreme Court voided three of the four, even while admitting the damage illegal immigration was doing to Arizona. Similarly, the Montana Supreme Court struck down a voter initiative denying state services to illegal migrants. Montanans had approved the measure by a nearly 80 percent majority. But the court said it was “preempted” by federal immigration law.

The federal preemption doctrine has its place, but the courts have overextended it. One reason is the widespread belief in a constitutional myth. The myth is that the Constitution gives the federal government exclusive power over issues of foreign affairs, warfare, and immigration—and that the states have nothing to say on those subjects.

COVID-19: Are Cancers Increased Post-vaccination?

Social media is filled with tragic stories of people dying too young and too fast of unusual cancers: “turbo cancer.” Some are blaming the COVID-19 vaccine; health authorities claim that this concern is scaremongering disinformation that will cause “vaccine hesitancy,” and that these products are “safe and effective.”

Statistics can be very hard to interpret. Is the sample biased? Are the diagnoses correct? One type of statistics that may be reliable—because there are consequences for failure—is marketing data. The graph shows sales of the anticancer drug Temodal.

The former pharmaceutical executive who posted this wrote that he had never seen tripling in the sales of a 20-year-old generic drug over just two years.

Other cancer drugs have increased also, but this is most notable. Temodal (temozolomide) is used for treating aggressive brain cancers like glioblastoma multiforme. It has many serious side effects, and “all patients eventually fail therapy.” This is one of the worst cancers to have.

So, what is happening? Is the timing associated with the vaccination campaign coincidental? Are cancers just seeming to increase because we are catching up with consequences of missed screening during COVID? (We don’t screen for brain cancer—it announces itself.) Is there another factor? Should we be investigating aggressively?

The Grange Co-op

By Dennis Powers


During the depths of the Great Depression, 99 farmers in the Valley invested $10 each in 1934 to form a cooperative. By joining together, they could pool their produce for better prices, secure a lower price for livestock feed, and purchase needed equipment and supplies at bulk prices. The cooperative has grown since into a multi-million dollar business with numerous services to meet this region’s agricultural and residential needs.


Local farmers and ranchers can now obtain sacked or bulk feeds, certified organic and produced locally. The feeds are available for animals ranging from sheep, goats, cattle, and horses to rabbits, hogs, poultry, and llamas. When the bulk fertilizer plant was built next to the feed mill in the 1960s, the Grange Co-op provided farmers with both conventional and organic fertilizersblended at the plant to requirements. Crop protection products such as herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides are available, plus renting different spreaders.


Rising 135 feet above Central Point, the Co-op’s grain elevator is an imposing landmark. It is the tallest manmade structure in Southern Oregon; an area monument since its 1947 construction, a 1961 fire destroyed it. Rebuilt one year later at the same location and to nearly the same specifications, the structure is still the only major feed plant in Southern Oregon.


The facility holds 35 commodity bins that hold up to 2,000 tons of wheat, corn, barley, oats, soybean meal, and beet pulp. This flexibility allows the Grange to meet nearly all of a farmer’s or rancher’s livestock needs. Purchasing wheat, barley, or oat grains from regional farmers (the great bulk from the Mid-West), the shipments are unloaded from trucks and railcars that pull up to its Central Point facilities. A mechanical bucket system fills the bins, as elevator employees check the levels. The feed is then mixed and shipped.


While other agricultural cooperatives have had difficult times, this Co-op has done quite well despite the Valley’s shift from strictly rural/agricultural to being more urbanized. Its success stems from a decision made in the mid-1960s to expand its retail offerings to target homeowners and weekend gardeners. The Co-op has grown over the years to seven retail stores in Ashland, Central Point, Grants Pass, Klamath Falls (expanded), South Medford, White City, and Yuba City in California.


The Co-op still runs its feed and fertilizer plants in Central Point serving customers from the coast to the Klamath Basin, and from Douglas County into Northern California. The retail sales at its outlets (including online) make the difference, however, with a wide array of products that include: farm and ranch, lawn and garden (including rental equipment), pet food and supplies, wild bird food and supplies, unique gift items, holiday-themed gifts, patio furniture, barbecues and supplies, clothing and footwear for the whole family, as well as hardware selection.


The Grange pays dividends from profits to “Ag members” (full- and part-time farmers and ranchers) and to “Partner” patrons (non-Ag members) who spend at least $1000 annually. Typically, 20 percent of dividends are paid in cash and 80 percent in equity credits (paid on ending of membership) to Partner patrons. Ag members typically receive 30 percent of the dividend in cash and 70 percent in equity credits. Spending at least $200 is a “Patronage” dividend in the form of a store credit. In total, these generally average over $1.5 million annually.


The Co-op continues to meet the needs of this region, whether it’s helping 4-H and FFA members, supporting the area’s agriculture, or working to meet the needs of gardeners and pet owners. With 200-plus employees and total annual sales of some $50 million, it has greatly expanded from its earlier Depression beginnings–and another regional success story.
