Oregon doubles the score on Washington !

Here are a couple of articles from the headlines of last week  highlighting  that in 2010 we did experience growth all across the country, and that Oregon is leading the charge here in the West.  In fact their growth rate was almost double Washington’s.   Let’s hope some of that rising tide flows  across the newly deepened Columbia River channel  and into Clark County.

    48 of 50 states enjoy growth

    Oregon leads the West  

 No other Western state posted a GSP increase above 2 percent.  Nevada and Wyoming actually declined between 2009 and 2010.  They were the only two states in any region to suffer drops in their gross state products.  

I only have one question …. Lars Larson and Victoria Taft can you tell me how this could happen?
