When I first trained for doing endangered/threatened species work, one of the sessions had several maps that tracked the first knapweed infestation..Deschutes County..The County did nothing. After all, it’s just a pretty purple flower, right? .Within ten years it had spread to the Idaho, Washington, and California borders..For a couple of years now, the County’s been trying to sluff off the infestations on their properties by trying to claim the individual landowners are responsible. just makes you believe in government… Ranks up there with the state doing shoddy work of paving, with ruts appearing in the summer, but they claim it’s all studded tires….Funny how Oregon never recovered from the loss of morals that happened when pot was legalized (73-97). Even today, it’s somehow OK for governments to lie.
