Josephine County Sheriff warns against bird calls

By Jessica De Nova/KTVL.com

MERLIN, Ore.-Sheriff Gil Gilbertson of Josephine County sent out a Public Awareness Alert this morning warning against bird calls.

The Sheriff's Office received a report of three males walking around Merlin between 2:00 and 3:30AM, communicating with bird calls.

Gilbertson suspects the men are "casing properties" and he asks residents to protect themselves from criminals "given the weakness that law enforcement is at this point in [Josephine County]."

The Sheriff suggests residents call his office or City Police for help in creating neighborhood watch programs, the right way.

He points out some communities in Josephine County have gone too far in neighborhood protection by breaking the law themselves.  Gilbertson has tried to explain to these residents that actions impersonating a law enforcement officer, such as pulling over cars, are a class C felony and may lead to a dangerous confrontation, but they allegedly refuse to listen.

Gilbertson applauds Merlin's Neighborhood Watch Program and suggests Josephine County Residents visit jocosheriff.us, click on Flash Alert and subscribe for alerts warning against crime in their community. Josephine County Sheriff warns against bird calls

Should your town impose a 1-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries?
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — One of Oregon's more liberal cities is considering a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The Ashland Daily Tidings newspaper reports that the Oregon Health Authority Medical Marijuana Dispensary Program has already received six dispensary applications for Ashland.

But neighborhood opposition has been increasing and the council will discuss a moratorium on April 1.

People hoping to launch dispensaries in Oregon began submitting applications to the state on March 3 as part of a new medical marijuana regulatory system.

A proposed dispensary called Top Shelf Meds abuts an Ashland neighborhood.

Carol Kim says the dispensary is separated from her home by a hedge. She says it's ironic that state rules bar dispensaries near schools, but her daughters will come home from school and have to live near a dispensary.

YES
My town should definitely impose the moratorium for one year -- no more, no less.
NO
My town should NOT impose the moratorium for any length of time. My town should follow current state laws on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Undecided
I am unsure whether I am in favor of medical marijuana dispensaries in my town, regardless of current state laws.
