    Would love to hire someone for a few days of basic weeding. Please let me know if you know of someone. Thank you. jessicaoc@

  • We were visited at our back fence Wednesday the 23rd by a bear. This visitor was cinnamon in color and about 250 pounds. It did nothing to indicate aggressiveness but hung around for perhaps 15 minutes. We are at Sleepy Hollow Rd and Snowden Cutoff. This is the first bear closeup in over two years. Jim & Carol Keightley

    • From our neighbor (Yotam Aviv) 3 miles up Snowden Road — June 6:
      Howdy, good neighbors,
      I just wanted to alert y’all that 2 small brown bears just got at my chicken feed. No animals were hurt, but it did take some determined waving and shouting to get the bear to back off. (The other bear was off in the distance between my place and Richard and…[Read more]

  • We received an e-mail notification today that James Phillips was released from Klickitat County Jail. He was confined there after committing an attempted home invasion to our home. It was brought to my attention by a number of sources that he has become extremely violent and should be avoided. In the past he wore dark grey clothing and usually…[Read more]

  • With mixed emotions about leaving Snowden, we are moving into White Salmon and have a tractor to sell. We used it to plow snow on our road with a steep grade. It is a John Deere 870 diesel model with a 440 front end loader, rear blade attachment, and 4X4 traction. Price $10,000, but willing to negotiate. Call 509-493-1384 if interested.

  • I came across a post on the White Salmon Happenings FaceBook page regarding a neighbor on Tunnel Rd that has lost her Mini Schnauzer. Her name is Teigha Mondragon. I don’t have her contact info, but am hoping folks can help her find her puppy.

    • As update to this post. Please call 858-380-8386 if you find their puppy, they are very worried. It’s been out since 7:30 this morning, Thursday the 10th. His name is Bentley. The vets and shelters have been notified, hope folks can help reunite this puppy with it’s humans!

  • Longtime White Salmon couple looking for a rental, preferably with garage for storage, by the end of June, while they build their home. Wife is a teacher in White Salmon. Passing this on in case somebody out there has a possible rental.

    • Hi April. I have friend who plans to rent her home in late June which is located near the post office in White Salmon. It has a large garage too. If the couple you mentioned are still looking for a rental, can you please ask them to text me at: I will put them in touch with my friend. Thank you!

    1) ERRATIC MAIL DELIVERY. Some of you have probably noticed the erratic mail delivery during the last several weeks: daily delivery considerably later that we were accustomed to, and misdelivered mail. (E.g., for the last two Saturdays, we received several items each time addressed to our neighbors.) In two calls to the…[Read more]

    • Hello. We have also had a lot of problems with recent mail delivery – packages delivered to the wrong address, packages placed in a neighbor’s hold box at the post office, etc. Steve spoke to the postmaster twice about the problem and he was very helpful. While our delivery person is new to our route, he used to have a route in the Dalles so I…[Read more]

      • Yes, good suggestion about contacting the postmaster directly — James Hamilton. (He replaced Sue Gross last Aug. 10 [2017]. An article about it appeared in the Aug. 17 issue of The Enterprise.) R

  • Missing black Nubian goat. Last seen Friday morning at 125 Sleepy Hollow. If you have any information regarding her whereabouts call or text Renae at 541 993-5231. Thank you.

    Missing greyhound – friendly, old, reddish, named Tink. Last seen at 1353 Snowden heading south. Please call 503 442 1703 if you find her. Thank you!

    Hi, Friends and Neighbors! Harmony of the Gorge Women’s Chorus and the Windmasters Men’s Chorus invite everyone to our Family and Friends night on Tuesday, April 3rd. It will be held in the Fellowship Hall of Hood River Valley Christian Church at 975 Indian Creek Drive, in Hood River, at 7:30 PM.
    It’s a fairly short…[Read more]

  • Due to unforeseen circumstances the Snowden Community Council will NOT be meeting this Thursday evening. The next council meeting will be held April 5, 2018, at 7 PM, at the Cherry Lane Fire Station. Questions? Call Secretary Judy Beckman 493-2006.

  • We had two Great Pyrenees/LGDs show up today at our place near the top of Snowden — they came well off snowden rd on our driveway to get here. Anyone happen to know who these dogs belong to?

    • Hi Laura — My guess would be Chris Yeager — the very last house on Staats Road. If they are still around, let me know if you would like me to contact Chris or his wife and I’ll give them a call. Thanks! Roy

    • That’d be my guess too. They came to play with my dogs a while back (1099 Snowden) and Yeager rings a bell.

  • There are several families at Rhine Village who have immediate needs after the fire. One family lost everything, the other family significant losses. If you are able to help, please contact Randy Porter, at 360-567-5454, text is best. Clothing, bedding, and toiletries are just a few things needed. Thanks!

  • We are hosting a fundraiser for Carolyn Long on Saturday, Feb 24th from 2 – 4pm. Carolyn Long is a candidate (Democrat) who is running for our congressional district (#3) seat that is currently held by Jamie Herrea Beutler. You can learn more at her website: If you would like to attend this invitation-only event, please email…[Read more]

  • Folks: I wanted to share that Carolyn Long is one of 4 candidates who have filed for WA #3 Representative position currently held by Jamie Herrea Buetler. Carolyn is certainly qualified academically: she is a WSU-Vancouver political science professor who specializes in civics. But what I really want to share is this: she actually includes “Dark…[Read more]

  • We need to hire a crew to help us with some forest maintenance/fire hazard reduction. Anyone have recommendations?

    • Hi, Jenn:
      In the fall 2015 we had Miguel Garcia and crew work here quite a few days on our 20-acre property. This was in conjunction with the DNR’s cost-sharing program (up to 50% reimbursement) “to promote forest health and fire suppression“. Our neighbor, Jesse Calkins (recently retired from the DNR), assisted us with the appli…[Read more]

      • Jenn, I second that. Miguel and Brothers Garcia are good to work with, hard workers, and have good experience.

      • Marisa and Barbara,

        Thanks for the recommendation. Jesse Caulkins had given us Miguels information as well, but we had trouble pinning him down. We have cost share funds as well. Given your recommendations we’ll double down on our efforts to get his attention!


        • I did try to reach him awhile back and got no return call, not sure what’s going on there. If you do get him, I’m sure he’ll be very reliable. Good luck!

    • Miguel and his crew are the hardest working most dependable people I’ve seen. I plan to bring them back to do some trail work. The number I have for him is 509-261-0646.

    • Hello! Just adding in to the ideas here: With Jesse Calkins’ retirement, Dan Lennon is the new contact for DNR cost-share in this area: Daniel Lennon at 509-773-5588 or He’s out of Goldendale but covering the west end of the County now.

      And Underwood Conservation District has a free mobile chipping service starting…[Read more]

  • The Klickitat County Fire District #3 is looking for volunteers for their Citizens Advisory Council. It would be great to have more representation from the Snowden Area. Are you willing to join us in supporting the Fire Department? Please respond here and we can call you with more information. Thanks so much.

    Anyone check out the Snowden/Bates? I don’t like signing up for stuff on the www. Prefer to hear some opinions/experiences first.

    • Hi, Brian, et. al.:
      Yeah, Googled ‘nextdoor” myself earlier today. It’s a private social network with mixed comments/concerns. Also, the BBB has more negative than positive reviews. Strongly suggest anyone considering signing up (we are not) to first evaluate the pros and cons. Richard P. S. Doesn’t/couldn’t/shouldn’t the Snowden Com…[Read more]

    • P.P.S. Also wonder who paid for the mailing to every Snowden resident, and why? R

    • I signed up for it a long time ago but forgot about it until this last year it became active with people in my corner of Snowden. What I like about it is that it’s fairly immediate. I get an email when someone posts, which is usually about worrisome subjects. Like when the planned burn on Burdoin flamed up from wind many of my neighbors posted…[Read more]

  • I’m interested in connecting with other horse owners in the Snowden area. I have a 11 year old Quarter Horse gelding that I’m working with for trail riding. It’s good to have horse friends nearby. Thank you.
