Hells Canyon Road to reopen Friday

OXBOW — Idaho Power Co. plans to reopen Hells Canyon Road at 9 a.m. Friday, after partial removal of a rock slide that blocked the road north of Hells Canyon Park last week.

A single lane will be open, with flaggers on hand to guide vehicles through the slide area, Brad Bowlin, Idaho Power Co. spokesman, stated in a press release. Travelers should expect delays, and are urged to use extreme caution in the canyon, especially in the slide area, he said.

No one was injured in the slide, which happened Jan. 20 about three miles north of Hells Canyon Park on the Idaho side of the Snake River.

The slide was about 60 yards long and included numerous large boulders. Crews worked through the weekend to clear the road. Some of the boulders on the road were so large, they had to be blasted to make them small enough to remove, Bowlin said.

Clinic provides options

For the Baker City Herald

As Marian Taylor settles back in the cushy chair, Jennifer Herrman asks a question totally unrelated to cancer treatment.

“What’s your favorite color?”Herrman asks.

Caught off guard, Taylor pauses, then answers “blue.”

Herrman leaves and soon returns bearing a bundle of blue — a handmade quilt donated by local quilters that Taylor can use throughout her chemotherapy treatments, then take home when she’s finished.
