    Any local musicians looking for a gig in June? Acoustic, bluegrass, folk music preferred.

    If anyone is making a scrap metal recycling run let us know. We’ve been making a pile and would love to contribute it to someone who wants to take the time to grab it.

  • I fall on my sword. I screwed up big time. I gave the wrong photo credit for the sunset you see in the background. Lois Bancroft sent it to me. You can see more of her extraordinary photography at Sorry Lois… : (

  • Council Agenda for Thursday night is now posted!

  • Hi,

    I’m looking for someone to build a pole barn/equipment shed and would love any referrals. I’m at 80 Bates Rd if anyone has a suggestions. Thanks!


    • Hi, Duncan:
      This past summer/fall, we had a 20’ X 60’ metal shed erected. The shed was made by Pioneer Steel from near Toronto. (You’ve perhaps seen the monthly ads for Pioneer along with two other companies in the “Ruralite”.) A steel shed is perhaps not what you are after. But here are our details. We initially did have difficult…[Read more]

  • Thank you, Linda Steider, for the gorgeous photo that’s now the background image on this site.

  • Snowden Council meets this Thursday, May 4th, at 7 PM at the Cherry Lane Fire Station. See above for Resources/Info, then click on Snowden Council, then Council Minutes for draft minutes of the busy April meeting.

  • Does anyone know of someone who’d be interested in scooping donkey poop, weeding, planting, raking, yard cleanup, and so on? If so, send ’em my way. (

  • P. S. (the “Comment” button) While I am not particularly computer-literate, would(n’t) it be a quite simple matter to change a protocol in the program to allow comments to be displayed (i.e., along with the posts) withOUT first needing to log in*? Would think so —? And IF so, then Scott’s suggestion to use the “Comment” button would becom…[Read more]

    • I just switched the Theme. Let’s see if that fixes the glitch.

    • Good news, the new theme does fix the glitch. Strange… the previous theme was actually from BuddyPress, the plugin that powers this post/comment thing in the first place. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

      • A welcome fix — thanks! This will certainly encourage members to comment directly under posted threads rather than opening a new thread to do so. (You’ve encouraged members to do this at least twice these past couple of years.) Do note that in the current format (April 30) which Scott is still working on, the “Comment” button has been replace…[Read more]

    • I think I’ve worked out most of the bugs on this new theme, but please do let me know if you’re having trouble finding anything on this site. It’s a bit bland. Anyone have some gorgeous Snowden photos? Lois??

  • Random notice, but we are missing one of our daughter’s pink ballet shoes, and since we found one of them along Bates Road, we think the other probably flew off the top of the car and may be nearby. If anyone has found a small ballet slipper along Bates Road or Snowden Road, please let us know. And they just cut down the shoe tree too! Thanks.

  • Hi, Scott et. al. RE: Your suggestion to use the “Comment” button. This is fine IF you only want the person(s) who made a post to see it. Otherwise, comments never show up unless you physically sign in first. (And how many of us actually do that unless we ourselves specifically intend to post/comment?) After all, some comments MAY/DO hav…[Read more]

    • I stand corrected. My browser automatically logs me in, so I’ve never seen the site while not logged in. I’ve researched this and it seems it’s a bug in the Plugin I use, BuddyPress. I’ll try to fix that.

  • Hi y’all. There are a lot of Posts the are really replies to other Posts. It’s really hard to follow. If you’re replying to a Post, there’s a Comment button below the post. That’ll keep discussions together.

    I’ve called & emailed him too with no response.

    • I called K2 News tonight about Weyerhauser spraying. It could happen next week because they are waiting for drier weather & wind at no more than 5mph. The person I spoke to seemed quite interested . She asked if I would be willing to be on TV & since I am not the primary mover in this & since I’m not the only one with serious concern, I suggest…[Read more]

      • Hi Bob – I agree with you – I am opposed to aerial spraying but am not sure where it is going to occur. I finally did get an email response (after leaving a more demanding voicemail) from Chris and unbelievably he simply cut and pasted responses from their website. The strategy is apparently to fake interest in residents’ concerns and then just…[Read more]

        • Sue:
          I called KATU news yesterday & now they are not interested because “Weyerhauser isn’t doing anything illegal”. Would you be interested in contacting any other press?

  • Sue Kusch posted an update in the group Group logo of Snowden Community GroupSnowden Community Group 4 months ago

    I have emailed Chris twice and have not rec’d any responses. Is there a place where I can get more specific information about the dates and location of the spraying?
    thanks much for keeping us in the loop,

  • Lois Bancroft posted an update in the group Group logo of Snowden Community GroupSnowden Community Group 4 months ago

    Kathy Burns has ordered 500 post cards from Vista Print to notify the residents of Snowden of the aerial spraying by Weyerhauser. She is having them sent to me by next Tuesday.. I know I cannot stamp all of them & I am looking for some help. This must be done this week because the spraying is slated to happen in about 3 weeks. Thank-you, Lois…[Read more]

  • Hi, Dawn: Here’s the reply I wrote about nine months ago to another person inquiring about the nuisance dogs three miles up Snowden Road: “The dogs you mentioned belong to the people at 295 Snowden. Their wandering (including being in the middle of the S. Road) has been going on for about two [now three] years. They’ve also been a nuisance when…[Read more]

    • I mentioned this to my wife, and she knew the dogs I was talking about. She hates it when dogs run out in the road.

    • About 4 weeks ago, I spoke to the Mom’s daughter, the Mom being the dogs owner. Have you seen them in the road recently?

      • Hi, Lois:
        As retired folk, we don’t get out onto Snowden Road most days. But yes, I saw the two dogs at least once on the road this past month. Interesting that there is a recent severe skid mark in front of the place; wonder if that was caused by someone braking for them? FWIW, while it has always been the same small black-and-white dog t…[Read more]

        • I almost hit the little dog yesterday on Snowden – coming straight up the middle of the downhill lane probably 100′ downhill of their driveway. I was driving a truck downhill and while I wasn’t doing 50mph it was challenging to get stopped as the uphill lane was occupied. I thought that little dog was “car smart”, but he made no effort to get…[Read more]

          • Hi, Reid:
            Sounds sadly so familiar. A couple months ago, both dogs chased my pickup downhill virtually the entire length between the two 20 mph curve signs. Although I was only going about 30 mph, they were actually able to keep up! While potentially hitting one of them is an understandable concern, I think a greater one is the potential…[Read more]

            • It probably doesn’t help that there’s a downed tree that juts out from the uphill side of the road on that stretch. There’s not much shoulder as it is.

  • Anybody know the owner of a brown boxer-type dog with wide blue collar that lives in the vicinity of Locke Hill (about 3 miles up Snowden)? I keep seeing him in the road there and nearly hit him once. One time I saw him in the company of a much smaller black-and-white dog who seemed a little more street-smart. But that stretch of road is not a…[Read more]

  • Must read! This is an old report but I thought it had info we should know. After spending 3 hours with Chris and Brian on Staats road and showing them our property, our orchard with 18 newly planted fruit trees and our extended gardens and discussing our…[Read more]

  • Please count us in as concerned neighbors. Or property does not abut any that is held by timber companies, but we certainly want to support mesures that keep aerial spraying from happening.


  • We have a 41″ diameter doug fir tree that needs to become someone’s furniture, less one slab for us. Before we solicit someone with a mobile sawmill, we are wondering if there is anyone interested in participating in this adventure. We are hoping to have it down before the ban burn goes into effect, there’s an adjacent strucute that is ripe for…[Read more]
