Local leaders are reacting to ideas presented in the Economic Forecast for Central Oregon. Former Deschutes County Sheriff and current business consultant Les Stiles says he liked many of the nine ideas presented in last week's forecast. One that stands out for him is creating a local leadership team that could then help make all the other ideas happen. "If you had an effective regional leadership team working in collaboration, that crosses all boundaries, break down the silos, you've got government; got the private sector, you’ve got the non-profits, all of these folks coming together to address those issues. Then the rest of it could follow in much more easily."   About 300 local business owners, politicians, government officials and other leaders attended last week's Economic Forecast. All this week on KBND's Take Five we are highlighting some of the ideas that came out of the event. Take Five can be heard at 7:15 a.m. and at 12:15 and 5:15 p.m.
