Something needs to be done since people are so stubborn and selfish, if they see it or not. It's a terrible disease with possible lifetime implications known and unknown. I think this point hasn't been drilled into most people's heads.

I cannot understand some people who go about carelessly, no masks, no social distancing, etc. Consider though: lockdowns have harm as well. If you lose your job, are you selfish? Your means to support family? Suicide? Depression? Education loss in students? I have seen all these happen first hand

All for it! This surge is worse than it has EVER been. It's people getting lax or having never cared that are keeping us from getting ahead of this virus. And don't get me started on idiots who think a mask if "violating their rights." Puleez! That is the height of ignorance and partisanship.

So many of us now work from home, I'm OK with it if it will help decrease Covid in our communities and families.

Queen Brown has forgotten that she is a servant of the people. These mandates are just glorified suggestions, not laws. Kate Brown, and no other governor has the authority to override our constitutional rights. The purpose of the Bill of Rights was to prevent tyrants like these from controlling us.

You do not have any alternative ideas ,do you? I doubt it since you didn't offer any. Just a sniveling, comment. And if that's the best you can do, then you're totally irrelevant.

Lockdowns and "freezes" have shown to only postpone, not "cure" viral spread. Although I support not overwhelming hospitals, lockdowns are not the answer. Even Dr. Fauci and WHO have come out against lockdowns. Brown needs to listen to science, not the media pressure to "look" in control.

There are better ways to handle this than a shutdown. Many have been affected in a negative way by the previous shutdowns - depression, family issues, etc.

My wife and I own a very small business and are barely getting by now. These new restrictions could finish us and we have no safety net. America the concept is dead. They rigged an election and politicized the virus to assist them. What's left?

Brown will go down as the worst Governor in Oregon's history. She is out of line, hurting many more people, this shutdown will not help anything but it will hurt a lot of people already hurting, this is so WRONG on so many levels. I had to cancel a trip, but I feel for all the food service people.

You cannot take away our freedom! Our natural immunity takes care of us! Not the government, and public officials! You cannot do this to America! But the sad part about this! We have allowed the insane agenda driven officials to decide our future! Stand up!

100 people die every day in Oregon. Only 6 people died of COVID in the last 2 days out of 200 deaths. And for this we destroy businesses and lives. I am 78 are you all insane?

The governor cannot use executive orders to essentially suspend the U.S. Constitution. Law enforcement has an oath and duty to the U.S constitution foremost, over what any authority figure tells them to try and enforce if it violates (the constitution). I urge business owners to take a stand.

2019 death from all reasons 2,900,689. 2020 to nov 16th. 2,487,350. That should wake people up. Where is the epidemic? Those are direct from the CDC

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.

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.

Don't know that proper nouns are capitalized? Don't know how to punctuate? He has "a" article? Thanks for the homeschool perspective on graduation.
