I’m furious about the city allowing Verizon to build a 4g tower next to the elementary. This is something the people should vote on. The city is putting business before its voters and should be fired

Speculation about harmful towers, electrical plants and even cell phones at your head have been around for decades. If not harmful, speculation about such things would have been put to rest long ago.

I know they are bad for health. Several peer reviewed studies show it. Not 'believe' it's bad; I know. You can tell when you camp next to one. Don't believe me? Try it. Don't want to? Why not? lol

I don't know how these parents can worry about these towers when they all have a cell phone glued to their ear all the time, AND they let their children have them too.

Cell towers use microwaves(used in microwaves) and radio waves(used in radios)which have a longer wavelength than visible light(basically anything you can see)and short wavelengths are more dangerous

Quite frankly there are other things that have an actual impact on your health like drinking soda and exercising that you should be more concerned about.

Agree. It's easier to focus on arbitrary things like cell towers than actually have to look at real things that control your health, like diet and exercise!

Avoiding more deaths makes these questions simply silly. Those that resist vaccine & masks are the weak minded being culled from the herd.

No. Because those who do will and those who dont want to won't. People are tired of being owned.

We are done with masks. I'm vaccinated, and anyone else can get vaccinated. Now it is time to get to herd immunity. If you want to wear a mask, knock yourself out.

I no longer go downtown to shop because parking has been too difficult for me to find without walking several blocks to the store I want to go to.

I have lived in Bend for over 50 years and until this summer have totally supported the down town business. Now I go to the shopping centers and also use Amazon. I don't like this but have no choice until downtown business forces the city to find an answer to this. Maybe downtown should be for the

I'm disabled, so parking in the public garage is too far for me to walk sometimes with my heart condition. More disabled parking would be nice downtown by the store fronts.

I avoid going to Bend as much as possible. I don't like anything about being in any big city. As for parking there, I only go to medical facilities and sometimes the Northside malls, so parking is generally not an issue. Driving in Bend is much worse than finding parking in Bend.

The only time I have trouble finding a parking spot is when someone without disabled plates or a hanger decides to park in a disabled zone.
