Belle Burch met the man of her dreams, the dreams she had when she was four years old. I was her Santa offering her everything. Why did she hide the truth we had so much in common? Why? I am drinking a Coke at OCCUPY meeting, and Belle is standing in front of Pepsi sign. Is this a sign, or what?
What Belle was trying to do was transfer this bog over to her, and her anarchist friends so they can own some legitimacy in occupying downtown Eugene as some kind of Radical Art Rabble. Belle’s Bunch knew citizens were complaining about these bums driving out the Arts.

This man’s name is John Gregory Presco, DOB 10/8/1946. He lives in Springfield, Oregon.
He frequents Eugene, especially the Whiteaker neighborhood, and regularly shows up at activist events. He is a stalker, a harasser, and an obsessed de…lusional sicko.
If you need a concrete example of his behavior and why I am posting this, his delusional writings can be found at https://rosamondpress.wordpress.com/
If you see him in your neighborhood, on the street, or anywhere, call him out. Expose him. Make it known that you will not accept and tolerate someone who harasses and obsesses over young women in our community. This man is a very sick individual. Anyone who deliberately makes women feel unsafe should not be tolerated in this or any community.
People would be not be allowed in Broadway Plaza, in the heart of downtown Eugene, between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., under a proposal headed to the City Council next week.
The plaza restriction is meant to prevent illegal activities that take place overnight in the public square, said police Lt. Eric Klinko.
The number of offenses in the plaza, including drinking, drug use, fighting and urinating, increase during the summer as transients come to Eugene.
“What we have experienced is a big influx of people who are camping down there,” Klinko said. “They hang out there after using drugs and consuming alcohol. And when the food cart vendors in the plaza come to work in the morning they often have to deal with urine and defecation left behind by the campers.”
The plaza closure is the city’s response to concerns by downtown business owners, including the food cart vendors, who deal with problems caused by transients in the city center.
“We have been doing a lot of different things around downtown to create a vibrant, welcoming atmosphere, and this is just another piece of that,” said Laura Hammond, spokesperson for the city’s Planning and Development Department.
Overnight camping already is prohibited in the plaza, just as it is on other city property, including parks.
People currently cited for illegal camping can be fined up to $150. The same penalty applies no matter how many times they are cited for the offense. If the council approves the plaza closure proposal, repeat violators could be fined $190 and subject to arrest.
“What we are dealing with is repeat offenders who are cited over and over again,” Klinko said. “Nothing seems to have an impact on their behavior, so the (proposed) ordinance would allow it to have a little more teeth to dissuade them from engaging in that behavior.”
The city now prohibits people from being in parks overnight. However, the plaza is not classified as a park, so that’s why the City Council is being asked to approve the change.
Police officials also are recommending the City Council approve an increase in penalties for people who have unlicensed dogs downtown. Transients who frequent downtown often have unlicensed dogs with them.
The City Council on Tuesday evening is scheduled to have a public hearing on the proposed changes. No date has been set for the council to vote on the proposals
There are two exceptions to the proposed overnight ban on being in the plaza, which has a statue of author Ken Kesey reading to children.
People could move through the plaza during the prohibited hours. Also, people could be in the plaza after 11 p.m. if they are participating in a city-permitted event, Klinko said, such as a festival or a concert.
A handful of food carts operate in the plaza during the daytime.
Todd Patopea, owner of Taylor’s Chuck Wagon, said he’s “absolutely in favor” of the nighttime ban.
During the warm weather months, transients often spend the night behind his cart, he said.
They use the planters along the brick walls next to the plaza to urinate and defecate, he said.
“They leave their trash. They leave their needles. They use it for a latrine,” Patopea said. “It’s absolutely filthy, and it has to stop.”
Eric Thomason, owner of Wrap City, said he regularly cleans up trash and cigarette butts near his kitchen on wheels. “We’ve had some minor vandalism to the cart,” he said. The ban would be a “step in the right direction.” Nearby business people support the nighttime closure.
Thomas Pettus-Czar, co-owner of the The Barn Light bar and coffee shop, said groups of unruly people gather in the plaza at night.
The crowds can be bothersome to his customers, especially those who sit outside at sidewalk tables, he said.
It makes sense to close Broadway Plaza at night, the same as city parks, Pettus-Czar said.
“I don’t see what positive activity could go on in a park after 11 p.m.,” he said.
Troublemaking on the street has diminished in the Broadway and Willamette area in the last 18 months, Pettus-Czar said.
More law abiding people are visiting downtown, drawn by new businesses, residences and events, he said.
“But just because things have improved, doesn’t mean we should stop improving,” Pettus-Czar said.
Sam Gorrin, a young artist who sells pen and ink drawings from the sidewalk at Broadway and Willamette, said the nighttime closure is an attempt by police “to keep the street urchins out” of the plaza.
He doubted if the nighttime ban will accomplish much.
