Economic forecasts have been tough to listen to the last couple of years in central Oregon, but this latest one from economist Bill Watkins is encouraging.


Watkins is the Director of the California Lutheran University Center for Economic Research.


He says Oregon has seen enormous economic growth in the last year.  He found Oregon's economy grew by 8 percent in 2010 to 2011 -- when 3 percent is normal.


Watkins will be delivering his 3rd Quarter Economic Outlook Report Thursday morning at Greg's Grill in Bend.  The event is not open to the public.
