Local News


The jobless numbers are out for Central Oregon, and for a change, things are looking a little better. The good news is that all three counties, Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson all saw double digit job gains in March. The bright spot is Deschutes County. The County added 950 jobs, which is 360 above seasonal expectations.  Crook added 30 jobs, that's about 60 less than the seasonal norm, and Jefferson County added ten jobs; that's about half of the historical average for March. A bright spot in Deschutes is that the private industry grew by 830 jobs. Largest gains occurred in trade, transportation, and utilities, followed by education and health.    All of the public sector job gains in Deschutes were in local government.  Another bright spot was that in Crook County, 20 of the 30 new jobs in March were also in the private sector. As we look at where we where last year. Deschutes County is up 140 jobs from March of last year, Crook down 290 jobs from last March, and Jefferson down 100 jobs compared to March of 2010.
