Big week for special features

I've been of playing rodeo reporter for a few days, but meanwhile back at the ranch, the Capital Press staff has been putting some finishing touches on some special packages for our Sept. 22 issue. This is going to be a big one folks.

Inside this week's edition will be a 12-page special section on climate change. The package, the third part of an on-going series, looks at how a changing climate, whether part of earth's natural cycle or man-made causes, could affect all things that grow. Specifically the package will look at the impacts on the plants and animals that make up our environment and our food-and-fiber supply here on the West Coast.

The package is produced in conjunction with our sister publications in the East Oregonian Publishing Company, particularly the Daily Astorian and East Oregonian.

And that, in addition to our regular news and farm feature coverage would be plenty for most issues, but that's not all you'll find this week. We will also have a two-page special package of coverage on rural crime. Stories will look at how farmers and ranchers have been targets for specific types of crimes and will include details on how some are choosing to fight back.

And readers of some of our Northwest editions will also get a one-page photo package, featuring the work of our photo coordinator, Mark Rozin, from last week's Pendleton Round-Up.

And all this comes to you in the Friday, Sept. 22 edition of Capital Press and online at

So, I guess that means I better get back to work.
