“Jory Soil” Designation Nixed

The Oregon State Senate has voted against a proposal to make "Jory" the State Soil. It was sponsored by Senator Alan Olsen who said it got its name from a family that moved to the Willamette Valley, south of Salem, in 1847. But, the soil isn't very productive and that caused several State Senators to vote against it. They said it doesn't represent the best soil that Oregon has to offer. The movement to make Jory the State Soil started when the Smithsonian traveling exhibit unofficially named it the State soil.
