    A gathering to “stand” is planned for this afternoon, July 18, on the Ashland Plaza, Ashland resident Joyce Woods announced Tuesday.

    The event is offered as an opportunity to “stand up for democracy, stand by (the) special counsel’s investigation and conclusions and stand against (Russian President) Putin’s attack on USA and (U.S. President) Trump complicity,” from 6 to 7:15 p.m., according to the announcement.

    It’s intended, it says, as a “non-violent, peaceful vigil/demonstration to show concern about corruption in the Trump administration. It is in conjunction with a coalition called ‘Confront Corruption.’

    “People are encouraged to bring family, friends and signs that voice their concerns about the betrayal of our American democratic ideals, support for truth, justice and security threats to our election system from Russian hackers and their apologists, including President Trump.”

    For more information, call Woods at 541-326-5127 or email her at
