  • Anyone missing a male German Shepherd? We saw him on Snowden Rd near Wiley Pond about 30 minutes ago, trailing a long brown nylon leash but were not able to catch him

    Just talked to Curtis. He has a llama of similar description but she hasn’t gone missing.

    Probably the same big, brown llama I saw more than a week ago at the terminus of the Lyle-Snowden Rd. Maybe it belongs to Curtis Kinoo? I left him a phone message in case it’s his.

  • Anybody missing a large brown llama? I saw one yesterday near the intersection of Snowden/BillMoore and Lyle-Snowden Rd. It was heading south on Lyle-Snowden.

    • Hi, Dawn: Yes, we’ve occasionally seen wandering llamas on our property (three miles up Snowden Road) for the last few years. Most recently (about two months ago), caught two of them (one as you describe) on the trail-cam near the house. Hmmm, guess they know where home is? (But we ourselves haven’t yet figured out where that is!) Richard

    Thanks, Judy! Where do we find those minutes? I don’t see anything posted on this website for 2017 except for the month of April (under Resources/Info>Snowden Council>Snowden Council Minutes) but maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. Or the minutes haven’t been approved and posted yet.

    That’s correct, the daily smoke approval is only for burns over 99 tons, equivalent to about 50 piles measuring 10×10 feet. However, burning less than 99 tons still requires a permit, and does not absolve a landowner from the responsibility to burn in a way that protects neighbors’ health (i.e. when weather conditions are conducive to smoke…[Read more]

    Be careful what you wish for. Faster truck traffic, more expensive road maintenance, and increased residential development often follow road improvements.

    Here’s the DNR Smoke Management Plan: http://file.dnr.wa.gov/publications/rp_burn_smptoc.pdf

  • Here is where you can find DNR’s Daily Smoke Management Approvals for Large Burn Silvicultural Prescribed Fires (click on SE Region to see those for our area): https://fortress.wa.gov/dnr/protection/burnrequests/. The “N” indicates that approval was not given today (because weather conditions were not favorable for smoke dispersion), but I’m still…[Read more]

    • Here’s the DNR Smoke Management Plan: http://file.dnr.wa.gov/publications/rp_burn_smptoc.pdf

    • The DNR only has to give smoke approval if a landowner wants to burn over 99 tons of slash per harvest unit. Noone likes the controlled Burn smoke, understand that… But there’s food reason to reduce the log term fuel loading of our forests. Just look how much smoke and $ we’re consumed in the Eagle Creek fire. Also in WA and OR there are laws…[Read more]

    We had outgoing mail stolen from our box years ago, including a check. Even though we noticed the theft immediately and put a stop-payment on the check, the thief was able to wash the check and use it at a Hood River gas station (where he was not required to show identification). Since then, we only mail checks or other sensitive information from…[Read more]

  • Did anyone else’s landline go dead the moment the power went out today? Makes me wonder whether CenturyLink forgot to change batteries in the box again.

    • Hi, Dawn: Currently at the library this (Saturday, Sept. 30) morning when the power went out also earlier here for a few minutes. But initially came here today because we (3 miles up Snowden Road) have not had land-line service (phone or internet) since YESTERDAY morning. Century-Link “promised” that it would be restored yesterday afternoon.…[Read more]

    Correction: The fire is not contained after all. I guess the helicopter was just on break for a while there, and I was misinformed. There is some additional info here: https://www.facebook.com/MtAdamsAreaEmergencyInfo/posts/1869976113328138:0

    I’m not hearing the helicopter anymore, and a neighbor told me that the fire is now contained. Thank you, firefighters!

    Dry Creek comes off the Monte Cristo range west of Hwy 141, and empties into the White Salmon River north of BZ Corner.

    If you are hearing the helicopter this morning, here is what waDNR_fire tweeted at 8 am: NEW #WaWILDFIRE – #DryCreekFire #KlickitatCounty 7 miles N of Husum, 10 acres, high potential, 1 crew, 6 engines, 1 helicopter

    The Washington breeder who developed the “pixie-bob” claims it originated with a cross between a domestic cat and a bobcat, but DNA testing has failed to detect bobcat genes in the breed. It’s just a large domestic cat bred to look like a bobcat. The pixie-bob has a spotted brown tabby coat, though, not black and white.

    Thanks to this bulletin board, we heard from a neighbor who wanted to sell some old bales to make way for new ones, so it was a perfect match.

  • Anybody know where I can buy a half-dozen bales of straw or hay? Old ones would be fine; to be used for mulch, not animal feed.
