Cardio Class

Smiles spread across the fifth-graders’ faces as a silly character onscreen raises its hands in the air to stretch.

They mimic the movements, soon jumping, dancing and laughing until they’re out of breath.

On Thursday, Laura Huggins and Katie Rudi from St. Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City presented a program called GoNoodle to all the classes at South Baker Intermediate School, Grades 4 through 6.

April: More sunshine than showers

3rd-Warmest April on record

April had the record all but wrapped up.

Until the north wind barged into Baker City and unravelled pretty much anything that wasn’t adequately anchored.

Fire app assists rural districts

Some residents in the Baker and Bowen valley areas might see a fire engine rolling up their driveway this spring or early summer.

But the mission won’t be an emergency call.

A project started last year by local fire agencies needs to be completed.

Urban Forestry

S. John Collins / Baker City Herald Six trees on the west side of Main Street between Valley and Washington were removed because the trees were dead or dying. Trees have also outgrown their root wells.

City replacing six trees on Main Street

The Baker City Tree Board’s campaign to improve the city’s downtown “forest” — and reduce the risk of people tripping on buckled sidewalks — continues this spring with the replacement of six sickly trees on the west side of Main Street.

The Tree Board is working with six property and business owners on the project, said Jennifer Murphy, who is the city’s liaison to the Tree Board.

Six deciduous trees — two flowering plums, two flowering crab apples, one flowering pear and one maple — will be replaced.

The trees had stood at 1829, 1901, 1911-13, 1917, 1925 and 2021 Main St. — all between Valley and Washington avenues.

Those trees, which were planted when Main Street was rebuilt downtown in the 1980s, were ailing, said Clair Button, chairman of the Tree Board.
