CAMP CREEK: Compiling a hundred years of local history has been a task Susan Thomas hopes to wrap up soon. “This whole project,” she recalls, “goes back to 1999 when I was teaching at Camp Creek Elementary, preparing for the school’s 50th anniversary. I started talking to a lot of people and visited with community member Betty Miller.”
Miller, Susan learned, had always wanted to put together some kind of community book that would include some of the photos and facts she’d already compiled. Struck by Susan’s enthusiasm, she passed it on to her.

VehicleCAMP CREEK: On Monday night at 3:38 am, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a gunshot wound at the Riverview Market on Camp Creek Road in Springfield. Police said the victim was asleep in his vehicle outside the market when an unknown person reached through the open window of his car and discharged a firearm, that struck the victim. The man, unidentified by police at this time, was treated at the hospital and released.
