RaDio hams at maRket On June 25, Lake Oswego Amateur Radio operators will join with thousands of their peers across the country to demonstrate their emergency communications capabilities. Stop by the Farmers’ Market to meet the Lake Oswego Amateur Radio Emergency Services group (LOARES) and take a look at the radio equipment in operation! We are all aware of the tragic earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan. There is a frightening similarity between the geology of Japan and Oregon, and scientists anticipate that Oregon will experience a similar magnitude earthquake. Knowing this gives us a chance to plan and prepare… and that includes planning for emergency communications capabilities. We invite you to come and learn about amateur radio’s resources and how to get your own FCC radio license before the next disaster strikes. The City’s Budget process for the 2011-12 fiscal year is currently underway. In May, the Budget Committee recommended a Budget to the City Council for adoption.

BoaRD & Commission VaCanCies LOPD Officer Gary Anderson went to Haiti in April and returned with a vision… Gary Anderson’s interest in law enforcement began when he attended Lake Oswego High School and participated in the Oswego Police Explorers. He recently celebrated 25 years with the LOPD. In the fall of 2010, another opportunity piqued Gary’s interest. This opportunity involved joining a team of law enforcement trainers to teach police and security forces in Carrefour (pronounced “carfoo”), Haiti. As a coincidence, the team leader was none other than his former Oswego Police Explorers leader Tom McGranahan, a Lieutenant in the Portland Police Bureau. In April, Gary, began his adventure in Haiti. The team, which consisted of Gary and five other law enforcement personnel from the Portland Police Bureau and the police academy in Salem, taught the Carrefour Police in the mornings. In the afternoons, they trained security teams from Grace Village - an orphanage and used, in part, to house mission teams. The training consisted of firearms training, defensive tactics and classroom sessions focusing on Policing in a Democratic Society. Over the course of a week, the students – who graduated from the police academy with not much more than knowing how to march – learned different escort holds, arm bar take downs, handcuffing techniques, punches, elbow strikes and knee strikes. In addition, in spite of not having a shooting range or even ammunition to fire, students learned the mechanics of good shooting including the most current hand grip, proper stance and how to squeeze the trigger instead of jerking it. Approximately 60 students benefited from this training. Gary, who has been training police for about 15 years, discovered that these were the most eager students he had ever taught. They had students that traveled 3 hours each way to come to class and they came every day. He was told that education in Haiti is so important that parents would miss a meal in order to pay for school for their children, because they know that education is the only thing that will get them out of their poverty. Gary came away with a vision – to build a training center, not just for police training, but for job training in all disciplines. He has already started working on this project. Gary Anderson retired from LOPD on April 30.

The Williams/Dame & White (WDW) planning team presented preliminary street layouts and development phasing concepts, as well as reports on technical site studies, including floodplain analysis. Consultant Vigil-Agrimis has completed a preliminary analysis that shows that the existing industrial areas of Foothills within the 100-year floodplain could be redeveloped with no measurable impact on flood elevations to the Willamette River. Based on a more refined analysis, the WDW planning team will identify mitigation improvements in the floodplain, including the provision of “cuts” or increases in flood storage. Consistent with the City Council-approved Planning Principles for the District, current concept plans could accommodate a mix of uses including residential, office, and District-serving retail uses intended to complement uses in Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Over the next few months, the planning team will produce height and massing studies to illustrate the potential building forms that could be accommodated in the District. On a parallel track, the City will evaluate the value of new development in Foothills, associated increases in tax revenues for properties within the District, and the financial viability of the new development to pay for the public investments that are necessary to serve the District. This work is essential to determining whether the Foothills District is financially feasible, and fundamental to proceeding with the redevelopment effort. For more information, visit www.lakeoswegobusiness.com, and click on the “Foothills” tab. The next CAC meeting is on Thursday, May 26, from 5 to 7 p.m., at City Hall. Citizens are encouraged to attend. In addition, City Council has scheduled a Foothills work session on June 14, at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. lois: a team eFFoRt FoR Clean WateR Photo "Fun on the Lake" by Gayle Mickey, 2010 Photo Contest winner.

DunCan aDDeD to oRegon’s memoRial Wall Each year, Oregon law enforcement joins family, friends and community members in Salem to remember and honor the brave men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty. On May 5, 2011, Lake Oswego Police Chief Daniel K. Duncan and two other fallen officer’s names were added to Oregon’s Law Enforcement Memorial Wall at the Oregon Public Safety Academy with the names of 169 other fallen Oregon law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty since the 1880s. In April, Chief Duncan’s name was added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, along with the other 152 officers killed in the line of duty in 2010. Their names were dedicated at the 23rd Annual Candlelight Ceremony at the Memorial on May 13, 2011. Chief Duncan passed away on May 20, 2010. He was to celebrate his retirement the following day. Chief Duncan served the Lake Oswego community for 25 years. He was full of life and everyone who met him benefitted from his humor, his candor and simply, his presence.

Jay Weitman, Officer Jonithan Funkhouser, and Officer Alexandra White - at Oregon’s Law Enforcement Memorial Wall in Salem. Photo by Scott Ripley.
