Absolutely. Who wants to constantly keep that painful part of our history in the forefront. Call it The Rivalry

I have never liked this name. It conjures up images of the most divisive moment in this country. This is a competition between two universities in Oregon. A competition, not a hate war.

There are movements all over the country renaming things that had any connection to the historical Civil War. This is but another and it is a good idea.

A sporting event is not a war, that is my first objection.Then of course there is the trivialization of the real Civil War where people died, our ancestors. They deserve better.

Treasonous soldiers tried to overtake our country and they lost. Then after defeat killed our President. Let that sink in. Rename the game to the “ Duck vs Beaver Bowl”

This situation is becoming ridiculous. Pretty soon we will be banned from wearing blue a/o grey clothes, insulting someone.

It's heritage between the northern & southern school; has nothing to do with racism. It's just a reference to their geographic locations. Why infer some meaning that is not.

There is no reason to rename, change the game at all. The pandering to the BLM is out of control. They are trying to destroy history along with the USA. Enough is enough.

So now we're going to demand other countries change their history as well? I.E. Spanish Civil War? What if there is a new American Civil War between Republicans and Democrats???

You are not an idiot but someone else here resembles one. I also think all this renaming and tearing down monuments to our history is ridiculous

AI is dangerous, very vulnerable to Misinformation and just spitting it back out. AI is NOT creative, real writers are creative. AI just re-arranges the factoids available to it. Teachers are alarmed that papers submitted by students might not be their work, just ChatGTP garbage.

This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

Voting FOR clean, walkable, bikeable neighborhood activities the encourage getting out of the car, meeting neighbors for coffee, ice cream, day care for kids from the elementary school nearby just makes sense. City council should listen to the residents who live in the neighborhood & act accordingly

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

Were you just kidding about all of your lofty "goals". Or, did the "contributions" from the developers persuade you to look the other way?

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.
