Sept. 28, 2016 - Salem, Ore. In honor of Problem Gambling Awareness Day, Tim Murphy, chief executive officer of Bridgeway Recovery Services and Barry Pack, acting director of the Oregon Lottery issue this joint statement.

Governor Brown has proclaimed Thursday, Sept. 29 as Problem Gambling Awareness Day in Oregon. We urge all Oregonians to pause a moment to reflect on the importance of connecting those suffering with problem gambling issues to the free treatment available to them from health providers throughout the state.

We are united in supporting problem gambling treatment. While it may seem surprising to some that a gambling recovery services executive and a lottery director are collaborating in this effort, we share common ground in our commitment to help those struggling with gambling problems. Treatment for gambling addiction is not only free, supported by Lottery revenues, but also effective. People can check out the Oregon Problem Gambling Resources website at www.opgr.org for information, an opportunity to chat with a counselor, or a referral to treatment.

Last month we toured the Bridgeway Recovery Services Treatment Center together and had the opportunity to meet with patients in treatment; a good beginning for a long and effective collaboration. The Oregon Lottery is committed to supporting and promoting treatment programs and training employees and retailer staff to provide information on problem gambling treatment services. Together our collaboration does good things for Oregon by strengthening our individual efforts to connect problem gamblers with treatment and positive outcomes.

Oregon Lottery proceeds provide funding for free, confidential and effective problem gambling treatment programs statewide. Since 1992, over $92 million in Lottery funds has been directed to fund problem gambling treatment.

    Not everyone seems to like the dial design of the Christopher Ward C8 Power Reserve Chronometer, but I'm not opposed to it. It has been called "busy," which to me is ironic since I see it as being rather minimal given the information it displays. This is the first watch I've handled that has the controversial new Christopher Ward logo in a more aesthetically pleasing symmetrical replica watches uk design, so I am happy about that. The face offers the time with subsidiary seconds dial, power reserve indicator, and date. The latter is done in a sort of a cool way that is half exposed - but not really. The date disc numerals are cut out, so you really only see the current date when it is over the tan-colored area. The dial also has some welcome depth - which you don't see on pilot-style dials a lot. The "vintage-style" colors are not bad, and are made of Super-LumiNova in most instances. Red accents are a welcome sporty touch. Depth is created by the recessed subsidiary dials, applied 12 o'clock hour indicator and a few other markers, the date window, and the omega replica watches hands. This is also one of the few times where I am not bothered by skeletonized hands (which I tend to think are an over-used design element which harm legibility more than they offer aesthetic value).At worst, the dial of the C8 Power Reserve Chronometer is an acquired taste, but it doesn't violate any major design rules. I happened to find it a nice element not only for being distinctive, but also for playing around with some new elements you don't often see in pilot watches. This is part of a larger mission by the brand to make more distinctive designs which are clearly recognizable as best replica breitling watches. At 44mm wide, the Christopher Ward C8Over the dial is a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal, and the case is water resistant to 50 meters. Weight of the watch is 81 grams.
