It was a missed opportunity in Central Oregon and Congressman Greg Walden wants to make sure it doesn't happen again. Following up on the missed chance to secure a car commercial filming in the Deschutes National Forest, U.S. Representative Greg Walden of Oregon has asked U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell how he plans to ensure that a similar economy opportunity is not missed again. In the letter he wrote that “The U.S. Forest Service needs to understand that Central Oregon is open for business and that the Forest Service should have taken a cue from Oregonians’ famous attitude ‘how can we make this happen?’ attitude.”   Instead, he says the justifications for blocking the commercial shifted course faster than a snowboarder carving up Mt. Bachelor.  One day, the permit wasn’t granted because officials didn’t want to set a precedent in that area of the forest.  The next day, when contacted by media, the reason was a nebulous catch-all of ‘public safety.’”
