Although design work and planning for the 29-classroom building began last fall, paid for with school impact fees from the district’s capital facilities fund, the district has not committed to a bond to raise the estimated $35 million total project costs.

1989: Only weeks before 60 local workers will be idled by closure of Weyerhaeuser’s sawmill, 130 more have been left without jobs by the destruction by fire of the company’s plywood mill on Sunday. The tall orange glow of the great fire could be seen from all over the area. Because the plant’s sprinkler system never activated, and because the three closest fire hydrants were frozen by a recent deep freeze, there was little firefighters could do as the 120,000 square foot mill was engulfed in flames.

The real model, he says, would have been big enough to dip into a real river.

Why is it that the most liked pictures on Facebook are wedding and engagement shots? There is something inside of all of us that wants to believe in true love. But on an even deeper level, I think we all know that marriage isn’t just about romance; it’s about generations of people and the communities that are formed around them.
