    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]

  • http://cironline.org/reports/oregonians-fear-harmful-effects-timberland-herbicides-3731 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]

    I contacted Chris this morning Friday the April 7th and asked for the maps and permit #’s…still waiting.
    Thank-you for everyones effort in bringing awareness to this dire issue of aerial Spraying. Please let me…[Read more]

  • I am looking for a garden intern to work one weekday morning throughout the growing season. No payment but a portion of the weekly harvest will be shared as well as instruction/education on growing vegetables and medicinal herbs organically. If you know anyone who might be interested have them email me kuschs@gmail.com. The snow has melted and I…[Read more]

  • UPDATE on glyphosate spraying meeting. Chris has only agreed to this Thursday the 6th at 2:00. I apologize for those working but ANYONE who happens to be free PLEASE come. He insists on speaking to individuals at this time but I would love it if we had the entire community make it. He is bringing the permit info and other statistics to prove the…[Read more]

    • Hi Kathy: I can’t make the meeting on Thursday but I did send an email to him after your last email asking for specifics on what is being sprayed and where it is being sprayed and he never responded. I am wondering why he has not responded.

      Thanks for your follow through on this issue.

      • Is Weyerhaeuser prepared to share maps of all their holdings? At a minimum they need to be able to demonstrate adjacencies. Please let us know how this is progressing, we don’t abut any of their holdings, but are very opposed to ariel spraying for a multitude of reasons.

        Best,
        Jenn and Eric

  • Our current Tree House Keepers will be moving in June and we’re looking for new renters/treehouse keepers. Perhaps you know someone who would like to live out Snowden way AND earn significant rent reductions. Please see our Ads on Gorge.net (Real Estate Residential for Rent) and/or Craigslist: https://portland.craigslist.org/grg/apa/6072262064.html

  • UPDATE on the Weyerhaueser meeting. We spoke to Chris Rasor (rep) and he is seemingly reluctant to have a big meeting. He has asked that he speak to Larry and I first, HOWEVER, he said he would like others to call him with questions. I AM ASKING that we flood his office with phone calls by any one who is concerned about this aerial spraying of…[Read more]

    • If you are meeting with a Weyerhaeuser rep, maybe ask them about all the Weyerhaeuser signs that have gone up around here in the past couple of years, saying that their land holdings are under “private recreation lease” and that anyone who does not have a written lease agreement will be prosecuted for trespassing. I understand landholder concerns…[Read more]

    It’s a small thing, but when you reply to a post, it’s better to click on the Comment button rather than start a new discussion. It keeps threads together. Thanks for participating.

    I’m posting this on behalf of Tova Tillinghast: “Our cat, a male named Rascal, has gone missing. He is mostly white, with grey patches, short-haired, and very sweet. We had moved him to a friend’s house on Ramsay Lane (off of Tunnel Road), and he didn’t stick around. We live at Bates and Bristol Roads, so he could be anywhere in between.…[Read more]

    Thank you for posting this, such important information for those not following the bee decline story.

    Re: Glyphosate spraying in Snowden

    My husband and I are meeting with Chris Rasor, Silviculturist with Weyerhaeuser, regarding the spraying of glyphosate on local land. A neighbor got sick following aerial application of glyphosate up to their property line in…[Read more]

    • Given that the WHO classified Roundup as a likely carcinogen in 2016 and the fact that no substance thus classified by the WHO has been subsequently removed from the list (in fact every one tested has proven to be carcinogenic) glyphosphate should certainly be strongly considered for banning.

      Moreover, the health effects suffered by folks due…[Read more]

  • Update on Burglary suspect: James Phillips attempted to kick-in my neighbor’s door on Sleepy Hollow very early this morning. The owners told him to leave or they would shoot. He ran down the driveway.
    The Deputy was called and an arrest was made and he will be charged with 2 misdemeanors and 1 felony.
    I am assuming this is the same person who…[Read more]

    • Another update on James Phillips who was involved in several crimes here last month. Today, he pled guilty and was sentenced to 9.5 months. The concern expressed by Jim and Carol (they own the house he attempted to kick in) is that he will be out in a few months with nowhere to go and probably return to this area as he has some kind of emotional…[Read more]

    Burglar spotted in the area again today (on Snowden this morning and Lyle-Snowden late this afternoon). Sleepy Hollow, Snowden, Lyle-Snowden.
