County voters to decide in May whether to make commission positions non-partisan

Baker County voters will decide in May 2015 whether to make the three Baker County Board of Commissioner positions non-partisan.

Those are partisan positions now.

The change would apply to future elections. 

Randy Joseph, who lives near Sumpter, is the chief petitioner.

See more in Wednesday's issue of the Baker City Herald.

One would not expect to see a carnival ride in Baker City at this time of year.

But there is one on Main Street.

Unfortunately, it’s not ridable.

Unless the passenger is a small mouse.

Or a Lego man.

Garry McLin, 70, who “hangs out” at Baker Gold and Silver most days, has built a 6-foot-tall electric-powered Ferris wheel in the establishment.

Poll Question

Should ODOT remove the traffic signal at 10th and C streets?
