Water samples indicate higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria, which can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, skin rashes, upper respiratory infections and other illnesses. People should avoid direct contact with the water in this area until the advisory is lifted.
This applies especially to children and the elderly, who may be more vulnerable to waterborne bacteria. Increased pathogen and fecal bacteria levels in ocean waters can come from both shore and inland sources such as stormwater runoff, sewer overflows, failing septic systems, and animal waste from livestock, pets and wildlife. While this advisory is in effect at Sunset Bay State Park Beach, visitors should avoid wading in nearby creeks, pools of water on the beach, or in discolored water, and stay clear of water runoff flowing into the ocean.
Even if there is no advisory in effect, officials recommend avoiding swimming in the ocean within 48 hours after a rainstorm. Although state officials advise against water contact, they continue to encourage other recreational activities flying kites, picnicking, playing on the beach, walking, etc.
Neighboring beaches are not affected by this advisory. The status of water contact advisories at beaches is subject to change.

School nurses quickly found out about what the Lions were offering and before any Lion knew it, most of the people they were serving every year on that big trailer, were elementary school students.
Those school vision screening efforts by the Lions Club members all over Oregon slowly grew to an average of 25, students screened per year. Lions annual screening totals rose to almost 50, students.
Then, in the school year, OLSHF completed testing and acquired some new technology that would radically change not just the methodology of school vision screening, but its efficiency and effectiveness and a whole new program was evolving. More changes came with the hiring of Lions members in all parts of Oregon to be school vision screening coordinators and using hard won grant funds including LCIF dollars to purchase more high tech equipment. These steps forward resulted in over , school students all over Oregon having their vision screened during the school year.
Today, local Lions all over Oregon, join with parent volunteers, high school students and other community volunteers to conduct these screenings using state-of-the-art student vision screening technology that is extremely efficient and highly effective. These screenings take only seconds, are completely objective and never get closer than about a meter from the student. Teachers and administrators are very supportive of this program due to its effectiveness and the fact that students are out of the classroom for such a short time, usually only 5 minutes per class.
School Nurses are very excited about this program because the screenings are of such quality and because it takes a huge amount of work off their shoulders. Lions and other volunteers can often screen as many as students per hour, completing screenings in schools, often with populations of over and more, in just a couple of hours. Long-time Tualatin Lion Ed Casey and Tualatin Elementary mom, Emily Galloway, were part of the screener team that worked with a staffer from the Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation on Monday, October 15th at Tualatin Elementary, with over students, and they screened all of those students in less than two hours.
Parents are also very supportive of school vision screening of the quality supplied by the Lions. At this recent screening, Tualatin mom Emily Galloway related that she was aware of the importance of early vision screening for children and that her own second-grader, Claire, wears glasses every day and has consistently been a better, more involved student because she is able to see better.
OLSHF hears similar stories from grateful parents all the time. The data that is collected from these screenings is securely encrypted and quickly transmitted back to the Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation in Portland where it is collated and returned to the school, usually the school nurse, by Tuesday of the following week.
That report contains full information on the screenings of all of the students with very complete reports for all the students who should see an eye care professional, including resources for families who may be uninsured or under-insured. Lions worked hard to raise money for school vision screening, but with other needs in the community, such as exams and eyeglasses and hearing aids for adults, support for local food banks, the Oregon Food Bank, as well as other charitable service, the dollars were falling behind the need.
In a difficult budget year, SB was unanimously passed in all committee hearings and the floors of both the house and senate and it was signed into law by Governor Brown in July of Lion Ed Casey said that school vision screening epitomizes the Lions motto of: As the year quickly approaches, the Lions of Oregon and their Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation will continue to work hard to serve their communities in a variety of ways, but especially in helping children reach their full educational potential through school vision screening and providing resources to parents so their children can see better, read at grade level or better and be fully engaged in their educational experience.

The Oregon Health Authority today released the Oregon Acute Opioid Prescribing Guidelines, in an effort to help clinicians working in surgical, dental, primary care, emergency and urgent care settings make evidence-based prescribing decisions when treating pain.
Opioid painkillers are powerful medications that come with risks. In Oregon, five people per week die of opioid-related overdoses. The guidelines, developed in consensus with an external workgroup representing public health, health care and coordinated care organization leaders, build on Oregon prescribing guidelines for chronic pain, published in The acute prescribing guidelines focus on acute pain management for patients who are new to opioids.
They are not intended for those who currently receive opioids nor for those with a history of substance use disorder. Common examples of relevant clinical situations include: It is common practice for patients to be prescribed day prescriptions in these settings. The new guidelines advise that the lowest effective dose of short-acting opioids be prescribed for no more than three days in most cases. It also tells us that there are many excess pills sitting in medicine cabinets, which could be misused or stolen.
The guidelines could also help prevent patients with acute pain from becoming dependent on opioids long term. According to a analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 30 percent of those who receive an initial day prescription of opioid painkillers remained on opioids a year later.
In general, the guidelines advise against using opioids as the first-line therapy for mild to moderate pain. If opioids are deemed appropriate and likely effective for the patient, the guidelines emphasize the following principles:.

Phillips also said her role as an administrator is something she never set out to do when she began her professional life in academia. But she embraces the opportunity to protect what she sees as a fundamental element of higher education: After finishing at her post-doctorate work at Yale, she said wanted to teach at a school where faculty members are supposed to spend their time with undergraduate students, first and foremost.
They want to spend time with undergraduates, and I want to be part of making sure that stays possible in the future. Phillips noted that the past 16 months have gone well.

Our kids deserve the kind of education that changes lives for the better. Thanks to Oregon schools, my family had that opportunity. I went on to put myself through college and law school, and my brothers took good jobs in the trades.

I delivered millions of dollars for sidewalks in East Portland and made sure that vulnerable communities had a voice in our state government.

We all believe that children should live in strong, healthy families, free from hunger, homelessness, and pollution. Now, I see those values under attack. Those same people focus on our differences and try to force us into opposing camps. I know Oregonians are better than that.
