VENTSday

Some of us may be afraid to take days off from work when we're sick, because we have no paid sick leave. 

And the roads on the way to work may be poth0le-strewn, because of deficiencies in highway funding.  These are the topics of this week's VENTSday segment.

We do not schedule guests for Wednesday at 8:30, because that's the time for VENTSday, your chance to vent (politely, please) on a pair of topics in the news. 

We bring the topics, you bring the opinions.

Let's hear your thoughts on whether Oregon communities should be allowed to block marijuana dispensaries. 

Or maybe you'd prefer to weigh in on how the United States and its allies can defuse the Ukraine/Russia situation.  Those are this week's VENTSday topics...

Should making it easy to vote include voting via the Internet? 

And while we're on the subject of voting, should there be new limits on WHEN political figures can take donations?  Those are this week's VENTSday topics.

VENTSday: Affordable College + E-Cigarettes

Feb 12, 2014

What will it take to make college more affordable in our country?

And those nifty electronic or "E-cigarettes": should we regulate those like the old-fashioned cigarettes? 

Those are the key questions in our weekly VENTSday segment.

We continue to debate whether people behind bars are there to be punished or to be given a chance to improve their lives. 

And we continue to struggle with getting our children to graduate from high school on time.  These will be the topics of this week's VENTSday segment.

California considers a statewide ban on plastic grocery bags, and Oregon gets a lousy grade for its anti-smoking efforts. 

Those news items provide the basis for this week's VENTSday segment.

Do you think your city (or county or state) should ban pit bulls or any other breed of dog?

Would you like your city (etc.) to drop any investments in fossil fuel companies?
Let's hear what you think...

If you believe in evolution, does that make you a Democrat? 

That IS the general trend in America, and one of the topics in this week's VENTSday segment, the other being a new plan for dividing California.

VENTSday: Snow Stories + Cell Phones On Planes

Dec 11, 2013

How was your week in the snow and how do you feel about cell phone use on planes?

Our weekly ritual is renewed, as we throw a pair of topics on the table--in theory, unrelated--and open up the phone lines and the email box to gather your take on either or both of the issues. 

VENTSday: O & C Timber Bill + Phones On Planes

Dec 4, 2013

There's already a wealth of opinion being offered on Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden's timber bill, and you can add to it on this week's VENTSday segment on The Exchange.

Every Wednesday at 8:30, we throw a pair of topics on the table--in theory, unrelated--and open up the phone lines and the email box to gather your take on either or both of the issues.  It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailing JX@jeffnet.org.

Here we are, just hours before the turkey hits the table, wondering what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

It's become a holiday tradition, that one of our two VENTSday topics concerns what we are all thankful for.

Republicans in the U.S. Senate just blocked another Obama judicial nominee through the "filibuster" rule (60 votes needed to proceed to a real vote), and California just released proposed rules for "fracking."

Tell us what YOU think on these issues...

VENTSday-Property Taxes + Painkiller Controls

Nov 13, 2013

A recent report suggests it may be time to tinker (to put it mildly) with property tax reform, and the federal government says it's time to tighten the controls on some painkillers.

It must be VENTSday.

Yet another study shows a widening income gap, this time within Oregon.  What would you do to close that gap?

And both our states may be headed to the ballot once again with measures to legalize marijuana for personal use.  How should any such laws be set up to safeguard users and society?  These are the topics in this week's VENTSday segment.

Our regular VENTSday all-call-in segment grows just a bit this week.

We chose not to book a guest in the first hour of Wednesday's Exchange, so we can give ample time both to our Fall Fund Drive and to our VENTSday callers.
