Our girls basketball season has come to end, but it was a great ride.
After suffering losses to North Douglas and Elkton our girls were  eliminated from the 2015 OSAA State Championships at Baker City. Buggy  Hiddleston was named the player of the game in each contest. We had a  great time and our girls represented all of you well with great effort  and sportsmanship. When you see them, please thank them for their fine  representation of our community.

In 1904, a sharp-eyed 61-year-old hustler named Lafe Pence stepped off the train in downtown Portland for a meeting of the National Mining Congress.
The conference he was attending has been long forgotten. But had the group chosen Seattle or Bakersfield to hold it, the very shape of the hills in Portland would be different today.
Pence had the kind of colorful Western background that you’d expect in a man who sets out to literally move mountains.

Our girls Basketball team is headed back to Baker City for the third  time in four years for the OSAA State Championships this week! Thanks to  our great fans who packed the gym on Saturday night. Our girls defeated  Trinity Lutheran 45-33. We had previously lost twice to the Saints this  year. Your support played a huge role in the victory. Thanks again for  coming.

Case & PooleBy Finn J.D. John
It was just another work night for the engineer and crew of the No. 15 California Express on the night of Jan. 29, 1897. They’d passed all the long, lonely stretches where train robbers liked to operate, and were now in settled country, steaming past the little community of Shady Point; in three miles they’d be pulling into Roseburg. So when a man with a lantern started signaling frantically for their train to stop, they weren’t particularly suspicious.
