The Monmouth Skate park committee along with both the cities of Monmouth and Independence would like to give another enthusiastic thank you, this time to Roth’s Grocery for hosting a very successful Bottle Drive. Again we also appreciate the continued support and feedback from the community …

I would like to thank the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for supporting my daughter’s 2018-19 softball season with the Oregon Titans. Along with my daughter, we had two other players from the Monmouth/Independence area. With their generous gift, the team was able to purchase equi…

Climate change, global warming or whatever you choose to call the disruptions to historical climate patterns occurring around the world, is an existential crisis. We humans are largely responsible, due to our use of fossil fuels, and our rapid deforestation and plundering of the earth’s natu…

I would like to extend thanks to both the Dallas Police Department, and to community members on social media who helped find and hopefully hold accountable the alleged burglar who broke into West Valley Taphouse over the weekend. As a small business owner, theft comes right out of our pocket…

Recently we just hosted Monmouth Christian Church’s annual back-to-school bash. Through generous support and donations of a ton of people and groups, we were able to provide over 500 backpacks to students at Central and Falls City’s school districts. While not an exhaustive list, I wanted to…

I find it is about time I joined the conversation about the “Round About“ traffic circle at Clow Corner Road intersection with U.S. 99W. Highway planners back before World War II planned for 99W to become a four-lane major north-south highway through Oregon. Right of way was purchased (and i…

Someone has attended the Trump/Boquist kindness course. Thank You, John Oberst for the history lesson. Your observations are often noted by clear thinkers. The difference between the 1800s Southern Democrats and the present Right Wing/GOP (RWG), is that the RWG hates everyone who has even a …

The letter written by Jodie Bailey made a very good case for a circular drive at the flashing yellow light at 99 and Clow Corner; however, I hope to see a signal light instead. If there had been a signal light years ago, I believe there would have been few — if any — accidents or deaths ther…

I heard some good — very good — advice from a man named Paul a few weeks ago that applies to the turmoil and bickering that we are seeing at the local, state and federal levels of our government. It concerns all Oregonians of good faith, and comes from the brilliant apostle Paul in a letter …
