2. Oregon standoff: locals eager to resume normal life but things won’t be the same—The Guardian, Carol J. Williams

Top line: “Before an armed, anti-government occupation, the dusty high-desert outpost of Burns, Oregon was little known beyond the dwindling community of ranchers who graze their cattle on scrub brush and the avid birdwatchers who flock here in April to observe migrating waterfowl. So Harney County motel owners and restaurant operators cashed in handsomely during the 41-day occupation of Malheur national wildlife refuge as hundreds of federal agents, state troopers and journalists descended on Burns. But the mood in this western backwater after the standoff ended Thursday was one of relief and eagerness for life to get back to normal.”
