    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 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]

    • 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.

    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]

    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]

    Scott, is the name Jaeger? A few years ago I returned a Great Pyrenees to them, and they had a number of others there. I don’t know the address or phone number but it’s near the end of the populated portion of Staats, with a “Jaeger’s Farm” sign at the entrance.

    For anyone interested in getting more involved in this issue, the next regional meeting of the Gorge Broadband Consortium will be Friday, February 10, at 10 a.m. in The Dalles. Exact location to be determined. The meeting will include updates on upcoming projects and legislation. For more information, contact Carrie Pipinich at the Mid-Columbia…[Read more]

    • Thanks! It appears as our address may have been enabled last week. I was at least able to place an order on the CL website this morning for 10Mbps DSL v2.
