Counties on the Oregon coast have begun planning – and in some cases taking — small steps toward reopening vacation rentals, hotels and RV parks amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On Friday, for instance, Coos County lifted its ban on short-term vacation rentals, though officials asked operators not to promote tourism or encourage visitors for now.
Gov. Kate Brown has talked about “Phase 1” of reopening Oregon businesses. Think of this as “Phase .25,” said Coos County Chair Melissa Cribbins.
“We see this as a baby step toward reopening,” she said.
Cribbins estimates the county is home to about 100 short-term rentals.
In neighboring Curry County, commissioners discussed lifting their ban on short-term lodging as early as Friday but then postponed the vote until next week after pushback from residents worried about public health.
Lincoln County commissioners and eight cities and towns in the county agreed last week to extend
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday that the city will close at least 40 miles of streets to car traffic to create more outdoor space for New Yorkers during the coronavirus outbreak.
De Blasio said the effort will begin with streets in and around parks, with the goal of eventually reaching 100 miles as the weather warms up.
The move comes after a push from the City Council, which last week introduced a bill to open 75 miles of city streets to give people better access to safe options for outdoor recreation, especially given the crowds in New York’s parks over the last several weeks.
As part of the new initiative, some streets will close completely while others will have expanded sidewalks; de Blasio also said the city will
While I was on vacation recently, another vacationer related this story. She was a young woman who had worked for a small company in sales and about a year ago had taken a one-week vacation. She returned to the office to consternation. Her boss showed her the company’s recent sales figures, which were the lowest of the year.
“And why do think that is?” he pointedly asked her.
The displeased pressure she felt from her management about having the temerity to take a short vacation gave her hives and she soon ended up in a hospital emergency room — a decidedly unrelaxing end to what should have been a relaxing time.
It would be one thing if this were an isolated incident but it isn’t. Americans’ vacations are being systematically hijacked.
We’re becoming vacation-phobic
One of the most shocking parts about the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 championship run was when Dennis Rodman took a vacation to Las Vegas in the middle of the season, which was documented in “The Last Dance” on Sunday.
Rodman was described as the “model citizen” in the days and games that Scottie Pippen was out with an injury. However, once Pippen returned, Rodman was described as becoming “dramatic, drinking, partying and losing his connection with reality.”
Rodman asked the team for a vacation and was allowed to go to Las Vegas for “48 hours,” which was met by Michael Jordan’s skepticism.

“You let him go on vacation, we’re not going to see him,” Jordan said. “You let him go to Vegas, and we’re definitely not going to see him.”
Carmen Electra, Rodman’s girlfriend at the time, talked about the
Dennis Rodman may be best known for his off-court antics, but the eccentric Chicago Bulls forward worked incredibly hard to be ready

What if the shows you steer your kids toward could actually help them become better people? We know, seems like a leap. But in the current bumper crop of animated series, many standout programs promote compassion, acceptance, and individualism right alongside their interplanetary adventures and fantastical explorations. These various journeys—which place your kids on a surreal train or in the magical Land Of Ooo—accomplish this without ever being preachy, which is useful as the topsy-turvy world of adolescence gets closer every day, and you find your kids needing guidance that they might otherwise resist.
