  • 07/16/96 ## * * Give Story: A baby is born to a young woman. It seems to be a pretty normal delivery. The baby is full term. A few months later the baby is brought to the hospital. Their managed care organization is notified and the baby is admitted to the hospital and placed in intensive care. After some time the baby is well enough to be discharged and goes hom.. Less than a month later the baby is backi in the hospital, again the MHO is called; baby is admitted and again ploaced in intensive care. This or a similar episode happens five times. Do you think cultural competence has a place here?

  • Newell Creek Landscape Changes: As Seen Through the Eyes of Contemporary Pioneers Sheryl Stohs, Graduate Student, Major Professor: Sunil Khanna, Mentor: John Keeley Environmental Sciences Graduate Program, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon [email_address] Abstract The goal of watershed management is to plan and work toward an environmentally and economically healthy watershed that benefits all who have a stake in it. Using interviews with key informants, this project will focus on landscape changes in Newell Creek Canyon that demonstrate a connection between historical events or changes and social land use. This study will contribute at least one component that would be necessary for appropriate watershed assessment. Narrative experiences states, contemporary pioneers, will help to illustrate this connection. Overview of the Project This project will address one of the issues relevant to watershed assessment and management. That of the examination of historical perspectives. The approach will be taken is ethnographic interviewing of key informants to provide direction and insight to the problem/issue. An ethnographic interview is a research approach that relies on observations, informal interview, and experiences of events and processes. This approach seeks to understand the culture of people or places (Rossman & Rallis, p.67-68). Correlating these interviews with historical data will determine one component that can be quantified or qualified for assessment. The expected results of this research will be to identify significant contributing factors for assessing and managing Newell Creek Canyon landscape changes. This information will then be recommended for further research in order to document historical landscape changes that can be measured and used for strategic planning. Key Issue/Problem: How can we identify landscape changes that have a connection with historical events in such a way that their documentation can be applied to watershed assessment and management? Methodology: The overall approach what will be used is to provide qualitative interviews with specifically informed residents or landowners of Oregon City or areas in close proximity to Newell Creek Canyon. Their unique experiences and expertise have enabled them to identify some of the historical and physical changes that they have witnessed or experienced in the Newell Creek Canyon. These interviews will provide a roadmap for identifying themes and categories to follow up that are related to the research problem. The selection of the population to interview will typically be forum senior citizens with significant experiences within Clackamas County, preferably those over age 70. Mr. J. Hwy 213: The county engineer planned to send it along Newell Creek , as the only alternative to skirt the city. The drainage system would allow this without major problems. Jack Parker, a 1941 civil engineering graduate owned Park Place, next to Newell Creek . He gave the property to the state for the Oregon City Bypass…An access agreement was required to give the State the land. The state design on Newell Creek had to be approved by the Oregon State Highway Engineer, C. Baldock Development followed when speculators took advantage of “inside knowledge” of future transportation routes. By the 1920s estimated more than 50% of Old Growth had been cut down Mr. L . Railroad service began in 1915. The train route was from Oregon City to Molalla, and then to Mt. Angel…At 15th and Main Streets, the train went over a trestle and crossed Newell Creek Canyon. All railroads followed a watercourse, and this was no exception Although the route to the top of the canyon was twice as far, it was the shortest distance to get out of the city due to the steep grade. Mr. M. My daddy called it the “three times a week” (not reliable) train. Mr. M. was able to help find old plat maps showing the route of the Willamette Valley Southern Railroad through and beyond Newell Creek Canyon. Historical Changes Affecting the Landscape  Increase in Population  Removal of Indians from Land (public policy)  Increase in Transportation Needs (economic)  Development of Railroad (technology)  Decrease in Automobile Prices (economic)  Increase in the number of automobiles  Unscrupulous Present of Railroad disappeared with investors’ money.  Railroad declined Effects of Historical Changes on Social Land Use  Increase in Farming and Housing development  Wasting Old Growth trees as natural Resources  Building Roads  Development of faster routes  Increase in Demand for automobiles; decrease in demand for rail transport  More land used for roads and highways  Decrease in willingness to invest in public transportation. Conclusion:  The process for watershed assessment should include examining historical perspectives.  Historical perspectives and human experiences can be termed the “ human resource factor .”  New transportation systems still follow old routes.  The culture of the past still dictates the culture of the present and the future.  Culture of the people is the key component must be considered in order to overcome barriers to environmental planning  Attempts to unify around the Newell Creek Canyon watershed face barriers of unwillingness, lack of understanding, and limited resource capacity for making changes due to past history.  Newell Creek Canyon is an optimum outlet for transportation, development, and natural habitat, therefore, social, ecological and economic competition will remain
    • Common Themes
    •  Transportation followed watercourses
    •  The most efficient way out of the canyon was through Newell Creek
    •  Railroad and Highway Bypass 213 were both “business routes” as well as access to housing developments
    •  Technology made previous transportation routes obsolete
    •  Transportation followed settlement of people (development)
    •  The culture of the past was characterized by
      •  Fear of financial loss
      •  Unscrupulous politics
      •  The Depression
      •  Unethical principles of transportation developers
    Definition of Social Land Use The development of the land for individual, collective, or public purposes .
