2011 Eastern Oregon Regional Profile
Each Oregon community has its own character and special needs. OCF’s leadership councils
represent eight regions: Central Oregon, Eastern Oregon, North Coast, Northern Willamette
Valley, Metropolitan Portland, South Coast, Southern Oregon, and Southern Willamette Valley.
Leadership council volunteers assist OCF with understanding and responding to distinctive local
needs and are catalysts for informed civic action and philanthropic leadership in Oregon.
OCF staff members have drafted a 2011 Regional Profile for each of the eight leadership
councils in order to provide information on some key indicators of community health. These
Regional Profiles paint a snapshot picture of each region’s community strengths and needs,
including economic indicators, indicators of child and family well-being, education data, youth
risk behavior and crime statistics, and information about community civic engagement. It is our
hope that this information will provide a context for leadership council discussion of the
implications, opportunities, and priorities for OCF civic engagement and philanthropy in their

Is there any scientific evidence for dowsing? Keith Barber, Isle of Wight

There is but it doesn’t reveal supernatural powers. Dowsing uses tools that amplify small movements. For example, the traditional ‘divining rod’ is a forked twig held in tension so that small hand movements make it tip up or down. Another method uses two lengths of wire bent into an L shape. The dowser holds the short ends, leaving the longs ends finely balanced enough to cross or part with the slightest tilt of the hands.

There is some evidence that dowsers can find water or oil when more traditional methods have failed, which seems miraculous. But experiments show that this works only when the dowser has some unconscious knowledge of where the target is. For example, they might be using clues from vegetation, geography or temperature. They might not realise what they’re doing, and so believe in the supernatural power of the rods. Experiments have been done that eliminate these possibilities, by running water through one of 10 pipes laid underground, or moving the position of water pipes. Under such controlled conditions dowsers do not succeed.
