Centra(, Coquille Education on riparian function On Tuesday, November 4, from 9 am to 5 pm, Oregon State University Extension Service, 631 Alder Street, Myrtle Point, will be holding an educational program on riparian areas. Participants will learn how to tell if creeks, streams, and rivers are physically functioning properly. Riparian areas function properly when adequate vegeta- tion, land form, or large woody debris is present to dissipate stream energy, filter sediment, and more. Once physical func- tion is achieved, a riparian area can provide values such as fish and wildlife habitat, livestock forage, and recreational opportu- nities. Proper Functioning Condition is a method for assess- ing the condition of riparian-wet- land areas. It helps establish common terms, definitions, and methods. The training is intended for farmers, ranchers, watershed associations, and anyone else interested in riparian areas. Half the time will be spent inside and the other half will be held out- doors. Lunch will be available. Please call the Extension Office by October 29 to sign up. Phone: 541-572-5263.

Spam legislation in the works U.S. Senators Com'ad Bums (R-Mont.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) today won unanimous Senate approval of the bipartisan CAN SPAM act of 2003 (S. 877), aimed at helping American consulners deal with the growing problem of unsolicited e-mail or "spare". Wyden and Bums have worked for more than three years on legislation to curb spam, which con- stitutes nearly half of all e-mail traffic today. The legislation passed by the Senate today includes a number of tough civil and criminal penalties against the senders of unlawrful unsolicited e-mail, and addresses a num- ber of other issues including the idea of a "do not spam" list and special warnings for pornographic messages. Worldwide, more than 13 billion spare e-mail messages are sent each day. Costs in the United Stales ahme have been estimated at S10 billion per year, due to expenses for anti-spam equipment and manpow- er and lost productivity. The Burns-Wyden bill particularly targets deceptive messag,Ss sent by many large-volume spammers, who often hide their identities, use misleading subject lines, and refuse to honor opt-out requests from spare recipients.
