More good signs for Central Oregon's economy. The latest numbers from the Employment Department show that all three Central Oregon counties saw their jobless rate drop from March to April.  The hardest hit county in Central Oregon, Crook County, saw a jobless rate of 15.3% in April, down from 15.7% in March. The County added 60 jobs during that time. In Deschutes County, the WorkSource Oregon report shows 630 jobs added in April, typically the County adds about 730 jobs this time of year, but April was very cold, which slowed some hiring, still the jobless rate fell from 12.6% in March to 12.4% in April. And Jefferson County also saw a drop in its jobless rate comparing March to April; it slipped from 12.8% to 12.3% unemployment.
