Update to filming regulations expected

Ashland City Council may give preliminary approval to an ordinance to replace the film and television productions chapter of the Ashland Municipal Code with an updated version during their meeting tonight.  The original ordinance was adopted in 1984. An increase in film productions in Ashland prompted the city to update the ordinance to reflect new filming technologies and minimize downside consequences to the city.

Late Ashland resident Temple's memoirs recall ACLU battles Posted at

Johnny Temple always admired his dad's writing, so when he had the opportunity to publish selected excerpts three years ago, he jumped at it.   The memoirs of former Ashland resident Ralph Temple, who rose to become one of the country's top civil rights lawyers of the last century with the American Civil Liberties Union, are due to hit shelves for the first time in paperback Oct. 1. "He was a tireless advocate for the disenfranchised ... he approached issues of social justice and treated them as if they were life or death battles," said Johnny Temple, known best for his work as a bass guitarist with Washington D.C.-based bands Soulside and Girls Against Boys.

Spectrum of housing options begins with a new home

I recently received an email from Mr. H, “87 years plus.” He asked about options for his living situation. He listed living with a grown child, in a retirement home, a nursing facility, or a “rest home.” If these are the choices, he asks, “Where then will your most real home be?” Good question.

Trying to get a handle on panhandling Updated at

The small plaza in front of The Black Swan Theatre in downtown Ashland, known as Chautauqua Square, has long been a gathering place for many of the city's homeless population and transients. While many who congregate are respectful and trying to escape homelessness, others who congregate in the plaza are disruptive and occasionally aggressive.

So THIS is where food comes from Updated at

It also helps to have fingers, which is why the boy rocking the ball cap, turned backward, and jean shorts must be addressed. “One time on TV,” he says, “I saw this guy with two knives and he was doing it with both hands, like this.” He then demonstrates this technique using his hands as knives, karate chopping at the cutting board like an air drummer gone mad.

Ballot doesn't reflect the city

Ashland is rightly celebrated - by us as well as others - for its high level of civic involvement. People who live here take an active interest in what happens in their town, and are not shy about expressing their opinions about what happens to their elected representatives on the City Council and other municipal decision-making bodies.

Longtime dean honored as fine leader, friend

Family, colleagues and friends of the late Steve Flynn gathered outside Southern Oregon University's McNeal Pavilion Wednesday to dedicate two large steel benches bearing plaques to honor the 27-year dean of students and director of financial aid who died of Alzheimer's last year at 74. With no shortage of damp eyes and choked voices, Flynn was recalled as that rare kind of administrator who made it fun for everyone, loved jokes, nicknames, one-line zingers and keggers and could still get the job done at the highest level, while always honoring the student first.
