- Maxine Bernstein, The Oregonian, "Rape victims say Portland police didn't take attacks seriously or warn public," oregonlive.com posted Feb. 3, 2014 - This story was originally published on July 28, 2002 says, "The Multnomah County Department of Community Justice reviewed Stephens' parole supervision and concluded that "procedures were followed." But Pam Mindt, assistant director of the agency's specialized services unit, will determine whether to institute policy changes." Mindt is an Oregon professional licensed social worker.
- Chris Ison, "Pam Mindt's survival story: Guard member from Minnesota challenged 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'" Minnesota Post, posted Oct. 29, 2010 says, "Lt. Col. Pam Mindt has survived deployment to Iraq and the demands of more than 33 years of military service. . . Mindt's journey defies the odds because on that day in August 1992 in Minnesota, she had just told her commanding officer that she was a lesbian. And on that same day two months ago in Canada, she married a woman. So when U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips recently ruled that the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy fails to pass constitutional muster, Mindt stood as an example of how, to some, it doesn't make practical sense either. She told without anyone asking. But in the eyes of her fellow soldiers and commanders in Minnesota and now in Oregon, she has earned the right to lead."
