The Nature of Cedar Mill
American Crow

The crows seemed particularly noisy and obtrusive early this spring in my neighborhood. Then I realized that their big nest, which I’d seen once or twice, had been in the trees down the way that have since been removed to make way for houses...

Bonamici replaces Avakian in Oregon Senate

Our previous District 17 Oregon Senate representative, Brad Avakian, was recently appointed by Governor Kulongoski to head the state Labor Commission. The Democratic Party of Washington County nominated Suzanne Bonamici to fill the post and she was confirmed by the County Commission on April 30.

District 17 stretches from northwest Portland nearly to North Plains and includes some areas south of Highway 26. The Senate seat is up for election in November and Bonamici has declared her intention to run in that election to keep it. Bonamici, who lives in West Slope, had previously been the State Representative for Cedar Hills.

Petition for stoplight at Dogwood

Local businesses, churches, schools and organizations are supporting a petition urging Washington County Commissioners to put a stoplight and crosswalk at the intersection of Dogwood & Saltzman as part of the road improvement project. You can read more about the situation and sign the petition at Bales, the library, Walgreen's and other nearby locations.
