The southern Oregon coast and the John Day Fossil Beds are featured in the newly released “2013- 15 Official Oregon State Map,” produced by the Oregon Department of Transportation every two years.
For this publication, the team decided to feature two photos of Oregon’s scenic beauty instead of just one. All the safety messages are still included, as well as a message from the governor, and other important information for visitors and travelers.
The maps are free and available at visitor centers, chambers of commerce, DMV and ODOT offices, and other outlets.
The maps also include updated insets of major cities in the state, as well as updates to state highways, interchanges and other roadways as a result of construction projects completed since the last publication, summer 2011.
ODOT’s Geographic Information Services unit created and refined the files for the map; the map team, which includes ODOT’s photo/video services group and ODOT communications staff, won a national award for the 2011-13 Official Oregon State Map.
There are still several hundred of the 2011-13 maps available. Schools, senior centers or other nonprofits who would like to use the older maps can contact ODOT Public Affairs at email@example.com and request them. More information about ordering the new maps is available online at www.oregon.gov/ODOT.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
