Oregon’s Attorney General John Kroger will paddle a length of the Upper Deschutes River to make a point.  Wednesday, .the AG will be in Bend to observe some areas of the Deschutes River that have some disturbing signs of pollution.  "And it will be a short paddle tour of the Upper Deschutes River and will highlight sections of the river that are both beautiful and abundant with aquatic life, but also sections with visible and disturbing signs of water pollution and degradation of delicate habitat." Kate Medema with the AG’s Office says when Kroger took office, he vowed to enforce Oregon’s Environmental laws. The paddle begins at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Farewell Bend Park. There will be a public forum with the Attorney General at 6 p-m at Riverbend Community Room to discuss significant environmental issues.
