Economic diversity and working together to forge a path of economic recovery.   That’s the message two economic forecasters will bring to bend Thursday morning during the Central Oregon economic forecast at the Riverhouse Convention Center. Bill Watkins says some parts of the U.S. are doing well, but Central Oregon is not one of those areas. “I think it's a combination of what I call dirt. Delay, uncertainty, regulation and taxation. It seems to be minimal in the center of the United States and seems to increase as you go towards either coast.” Analyst Delore Zimmerman will bring some suggestions. “What I'm gonna do on Thursday is talk about a portfolio of strategies that I think is forward looking and capitalizes on some of your existing strengths and some of the opportunities that we see.” The Central Oregon Economic Forecast will be presented at the Riverhouse in Bend; continental breakfast at 7am. Presentation will be from 8 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.   Early registration tickets are available online for $75. You can find out more by going to the links page of kbnd-dot-com.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
