‘MacGyver’ move saves millions

Early audio tapes captured Oregon legislative debate

The Dalles native Austin Schulz is known as the “Archives MacGyver” at the Oregon State Archives. The 2000 graduate of Wahtonka High School likes to figure out how things work, and a mystery presented itself shortly after he began working at the state archives in 2008. The solution he eventually found — a resourceful setup worthy of the problem-solving TV character MacGyver — has saved the state an estimated $5.5 million, according to the Oregon Secretary of State’s office.

The public health district is getting more money from each of its three member counties in the upcoming budget, but is losing a large, one-time funding source. The ensuing belt-tightening, including the loss of a temporary office worker along with other cuts, will not affect the current hours of the health district’s walk-in clinic, the service it is best known for.
