In its most recent cut, the court has eliminated one of its two Family Law Facilitator positions. The facilitators assist unrepre- sented people in family law cases with filling-out the appropriate paper work. The number of people acting without lawyers in family law cases continues to increase. At the same time, the paperwork associated with the cases has become much more complicated. According to the judges, the loss of this position will dramatically impact the court's ability to serve unrepresented people in those cases. Historically, the facili- tators have worked with people on a one-on-one basis. To fill the gap, the court is working on developing a class format to assist people. The court has also eliminated its Drug Court Coordinator. Drug Court is a highly intensive treatment court designed to assist substance-addicted defen- dants in criminal cases. Graduates of Drug Court have a much greater likeli- hood of living crime-free lives than defendants dealt with in the traditional criminal system. While the district's Drug Courts will continue, the level of service will diminish. The number of participants may also need to be reduced. Industrial TIRE Service, Inc.

How- ever, the court's ability to do so effectively has been severely compromised. The Court's remaining staff members have assumed additional responsibilities as their numbers have de- creased. Their work has increased. So too have the interruptions. To allow the remaining staff adequate time to process case work, as of June 1 the counters and telephones in Hood River and Wasco counties will be closed to the public at 4 p.m. each day. The courtrooms will remain open to 5 p.m. Staff not working in court will have the last hour of the day for quiet work time. The hours of operation in Gilliam, Wheeler and Sherman coun- ties will remain unaffected: Payments will not be accepted at the courthouses between 4 and 5 p.m. Payments will be accepted anytime electronically through the court's new E Pay system. That system can be accessed on-line, A drop box system will be established for filings made between 4 and 5 p.m. The public is strongly encouraged to make filings before 4 p.m. Members of the public are asked to understand that the Court is short staffed, others have matters important to them pending before the court, and the court's staff has a great number of constitutionally and statu- torily mandated obligations to address. For example, criminal cases, especially those involving persons in custody; family abuse pre- vention act restraining orders; juvenile dependency cases; motions to enforce parenting time; evictions: civil commitment proceed- ings; and stalking cases must be dealt with on a priority basis.

At this time, locally the court is not planning additional furlough days beyond the nine days announced last fall. Those days match the days set by Gov. John Kitzhaber for non- judicial state offices. The court also does not anticipate any further modifications to court operations in the foreseeable future.
