12th and Newport and 12th and Galveston. NOT Wilson and 9th. I've been at that intersection weekly. Doesn't begin to compare with them 12th Street problems

try going down Reed, when there is a train blocking the 9th St traffic from Wilson and 9th.

Bear Creek and Pettigrew. So many accidents in evenings with sunsets and people running stop sign facing west blinding sun.

Butler Market and Wells Acres. Very unsafe intersection for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians

The intersection of SW Canal and Salmon in Redmond could really use one.

As many as possible, my personal pick for the next roundabout is Main st and North 3rd st in Prineville. My second pick Harwood and NW 3rd in Prineville, then Elm and NE 3rd and Combs Flat and NE 3rd. We should leave the stoplights at Deer and NW 3rd as a historical landmark, maybe put up a plaque.

The only way to put roundabouts at those intersections means that existing buildings on all four corners would have to be demolished. Goodbye Bowman Museum.

O.B. Riley and Empire please! Cars are pulling out further and further into the road way. turning left onto empire is hazardous. Not to mention it is right next to the ODOT yard and they are already working on improving the sidewalks. The city and ODOT work together?????

Roundabouts are a mess if they are anywhere near a railroad crossing, as people who cannot get around the roundabout will sit right in the middle of it, and stop everyone else, trying to go in the other 3 directions. What a mess!

Blocking intersections should earn you a ticket, same with roundabouts. Sounds like the DMV needs to educate drivers better about roundabout use.

I am a senior citizen living in a senior park between Wilson and Reed Market Road. I never use Reed Market as I can't figure out when I can go. I can handle single lane round abouts. Thank heavens the roundabouts on Wilson are going to be single lane or I would have to quit driving.

More roundabouts everywhere but can't fix Reed Market and Bond or the 97 Couplet vs pedestrian problem. Are you kidding me.

Reed Market from Bond to 15th is a joke.

It/s not really a booster it's the third of a series. This is new and the efficiency is still being established.

Yes I am. We have the medical technology to keep us safe, why not take advantage of it? Those who have not taken advantage of the vaccine do not deserve any sympathy.

1 in 5 new cases are fully vaccinated persons. If you think you are safe because you're vaccinated you are not. People that are vaccinated are spreading the virus because they think they are safe to mingle. OHA website under vaccine break through is the source for this information.

I want to be protected from the virus to the best I can be. I am aware that it is not 100%, but neither is the flu vac. But it helps. Think where we would be if there had been this major social media presence when the polio, measles, chicken pox vaccines came out.

Yes the Demarcates socialist agenda is seriously Hurting this Country! Help wanted signs everywhere, trying to get help with most things is months off, even KFC has no food sometimes, the cook had not arrived. Try to get a plumber or a painter, months out!

Democrats are working with large on line sellers and corporations to destroy small business competitors. COVID lock downs, living rent free and government checks are destroying neighborhood businesses. How do politicians become millionaires?

I work at brightwood in madras for starters so obviously the worker shortage has hit us badly! I have been working 11 hour shifts since the beginning of COVID and there seems to be no end in sight everyone is over worked and extremely tired to the point where people call in daily just to get rest

I'm a manager for a gas station I should have about 8 to 10 employees and I have 1. People in this state do not understand how gas stations work but yet are so impatient, so pathetic, and demand to be served the second they pull in, it's getting out of hand! And this state NEEDS TO GO self-serve
