These fungal wine lectures delicacies that grow beneath the soil's surface were designated a "special forest product" by the Oregon Legislature earlier this year. Anyone who intends to collect truffles in the forest this fall must have a permit issued by the landowner. House Bill 2615 amended the state statute on the harvest- ing of special forest products, ORS 164.183, to broaden the category 'of "edible mush- rooms" to "edible fungi," thus including truffles. Other special forest products already subject to harvest regulation under the law include firewood, cedar shake bolts, and greens such as tree boughs and salal. HB 2615 also places a requirement on individuals and businesses that buy truffles harvested in Oregon's forests to maintain a record of their purchases. ODF will make available new special forest products per- mit forms by Oct. 1, 2014. For the 2013 truffle season, the de- partment has prepared interim forms for landowners and buy- ers to use which can be picked up at any local ODF office. Location and contact informa- tion for ODF headquarters and field orifices can be found on the web, www.oregon.gov/od Buses: School district not responsible for charter school bus service Continued from PAGE 1 quired to add an additional route for the Japanese School. Charter school law says only that students have the right to seats on existing district buses on a space available basis, meaning when there are extra seats, Paay said. During last year's contract re-negotiations with the district, SJS attempted to incorporate a transportation contract into its agreement with the district but was unsuccessful. The contract would have positioned the dis- trict between the school and the state and allowed parents of SJS students to be reimbursed for transportation costs in the same way that district parents are, but with SJS offering the district 20 percent overhead, Paay said. If there were a way to get transportation for the charter school partially funded through the state, a process which would likely need to be facili- tated through the Sheridan School District, SJS would be involved, but that.is not cur- rently an option, Paay said. The Sherdain Japanese School Foundation Board will hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. onAugust 29 at the school, 430 SW Monroe St. It will dis- cuss the school handbook. Streets.

The summit is to be held in Brussels, Belgium Sept. 6-8. Youth del- egates from over 30 countries wilt join to- gether to celebrate the forward progress made in human rights education around the world. The summit is organized by Youth for Human Rights Inter- national, a nonprofit organiza- tion that was founded in 2001 by Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, an educator born and raised in apartheid-era South Africa, where she witnessed first hand the devastating effects of dis- crimination and the lack of ba- sic human rights. Shuttleworth founded YHR to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948, and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. Since then YHRI has grown into a global movement, including hundreds of groups, clubs and chapters around the world, including one at the Delphian School. Dana is the current president of the Delphian School's Youth for Human Rights Club and was chosen from a pool of sev- oral USA delegate candidates based on her dedication and contribution toward improving human rights education in Or- egon.

It is my aim to make a change in the world by educating others on their human rights. I believe leaming what others are doing to forward human rights in other countries will be incred- ible and will open my eyes to the impact human rights edu- cation is creating on a global scale. I am looking forward to this opportunity as a chance to work with others in achieving this goal world wide." Dana will be the second consecutive Delphian School student to be chosen to repre- sent the USA at the Interna- tional Human Rights Youth Summit: her classmate Erica Rodgers represented the USA at last year's summit.

Current Oregon law requires public notices to be printed in a newspaper whose readers are affected by the notice, Federal, state, and local government agencies erronetusly believe they can save money by posting public notices on their web sites instead of in the local newspaper. But who would have access to those online notices? 62% of U.S. seniors (65 and older) have no internet access, and a third of those who no have access are still limited to dia|up." Besides, you'd have to koow in advance where, when, and how to look, and what to look for, in order to be informed about government actions that could affect you directly. Less than 10% of the U.S. population currently visits a government web site daily," but 80% of all Oregon adults read a newspaper at least once during an average week, and 54% read public notices printed there.'"
