From the mailbag

A collection of random bits that have been emailed in:

  • Oregon ties for 8th place for the best drivers in the nation. Of course, the person who emailed me the link pointed out that California ranks 4th from the bottom.
  • There is a free earthquake talk this Saturday (the 30th) at the COCC Hitchcock Auditorium. It’s about earthquake preparedness, and while free, seating is limited; call (541) 382-2142 or to find out more.
  • In June, Deschutes Brewery is celebrating their 21st birthday on the 27th with a "back lot barbecue" featuring the first keg of Black Butte XXI, the Woody barrel, live music, and a bunch of rare Reserve Series beers being poured. It’s all taking place in the parking lot behind their main pub on Bond Street.
