John Dellenback TV Special

Found this great special from SOPTV about highlighting the life of Congressman John Dellenback. You can watch it here

I recently framed up my Dellenback items. The only thing I have that is not pictured here is a red and white Dellenback tab.

Paul Hanneman Remembered

In 2017 Oregon lost Paul Hanneman. He spent 26 years in the Oregon legislature representing citizens of the central Oregon coast. His home was Pacific City and he was involved in two of the landmark environmental  accomplishments of the late 1960s and early 1970s here in Oregon. The Oregon Bottle Bill when first introduced in 1969 was met with stiff opposition, including opposition from future supporter Governor Tom McCall. Eventually Paul Hanneman and Richard Chambers were eventually able to get McCall on board in 1971 and HB 1036 was passed with a lot of opposition from grocery stores and the beverage industry. Hanneman was the sponsor of the legislation.

First Official 2020 Items!

Well I made my first official donation to a 2020 Presidential candidate to get some buttons this month. Andrew Yang is probably a long shot of long shots, but at least he has a campaign store!

There are buttons and stickers for the traditional collectors and other items like shirts and tech stickers (smaller stickers for your laptop or phone case). 

For 10 dollars I got two buttons and two stickers. They are pictured below. His campaign site is here: and his STORE

Mystery of the DNC Badge

I stumbled upon an interesting find in the wilds of Oregon. This 1972 Democratic National Convention delegate badge and ribbon. I purchased it from a woman in Dayton, Oregon. She had purchased it from an estate seller in Salem, Oregon who told her she had picked it up at a storage/estate sale in Salem.
