Harney County Judge Steve Grasty announced a change in venue and format for the weekly Harney County community meeting scheduled for Monday, January 25. ‘We started the weekly community meeting so that Harney County residents would have an opportunity to ask questions and voice their concerns in a safe and civil manner,’ said Judge Grasty. ‘The meeting last week did not fulfill that purpose.’ Harney County has been notified by the school district that school facilities will no longer be available for these community meetings due to the number of firearms that were present, in violation of school district policy. The meeting on January 25 will be held at the Harney County Senior Center at 5:00 p.m. Doors will open at 4:30. The Senior Center also has a ‘no firearm’ policy that will be strictly enforced. Please arrive early in order to get through security in a timely manner. The format for this meeting will also be special. ‘Residents of Harney County have been given a unique opportunity to be heard statewide,’ said Judge Grasty, explaining that Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Think Out Loud public affairs program will moderate and record the meeting on Monday. The host of Think Out Loud, Dave Miller, will ask questions of those in attendance. This episode of Think Out Loud will air on Tuesday, January 26. ‘I can’t think of a better way to give Oregon a taste of the real Harney County,’ continued Grasty. Due to space limitations at the Senior Center and the unique format, entrance to this meeting will be limited only to those Harney County residents who have a ticket. Tickets will be available starting at 10 a.m. Monday morning. Here is what you need to know:Oregon’s governor said it best when she said this spectacle is ripping out the heart of our community. And to that I will add this: the real Harney County community respects the rule of law. Many of us are frustrated by state and federal regulation of land use. Some here are mightily angry about our economy which we cannot control. Most of all, many of us are appalled by those who were neither invited nor welcomed, but who purport to speak for our county’s residents.There are many of us in Harney County who are incredulous about the federal government’s fear of taking action against the lawlessness that we are witnessing on a daily basis. It is time to stop the madness. We want our county back. Citizens of Harney County, those of us who live and work here, are not the unsophisticated rubes that are being portrayed in national media reports. We are hard working. We are proud and strong. We support our schools. We are patriotic. We take care of our neighbors. And we want our county back! As County Judge, I have never before experienced a situation like what we face now. I am proud that our Sheriff, Dave Ward, has been a voice of reason under the most trying of circumstances. I am proud that our fellow county residents have resisted any temptation to ‘engage’ those who attempt to exploit us. Never before have I been more proud of Harney County and its citizens. I continue to ask those who occupy our public lands in Harney County to leave, to leave peacefully, and to leave now.
