Karl Wittich doesn’t know what kinds of side dishes to expect when Calvary Baptist opens its doors to the community for a free Christmas Eve dinner tonight.

He is certain of the main courses, however. They’ll be the odd combination of beef stroganoff accompanied by roast turkey.

Here’s how that came about:

Stephanie Kinzel is a one-woman gift-giving campaign.

She will hand out about $600 worth of toys Wednesday afternoon in front of J. Tabor Jewelers, 1913 Main St. in Baker City.

The giveaway will begin at 1 p.m.

Kinzel said all children up to age 18 are welcome to come with their families and pick out a gift.


Scouts to pick up Christmas trees morning of Jan. 3


Baker City Scouts will be picking up Christmas trees the morning of Jan. 3 starting at 8:30.

Residents can leave their trees near the curb or street that morning. Scouts will deliver trees to Baker Sanitary Service, which will turn the trees into mulch.

Giving of donations is encouraged, but not required.  Donations may be placed in an envelope attached to the front door of the residence. Contributions go toward supplies, camping and other activities as needed by the Scout units.  The money remains with the local Scouting unit that picks up the tree. 

More information is available by calling Ed Hibbard at 541-519-6806.


Making sure everyone has their own voice

Teaching Sign Language

Lisa Britton/For the Baker City Herald Elke Sharma is fluent in sign language.

By Lisa Britton

For the Baker City Herald

Scarlet fever stole most of Elke Sharma’s hearing as a child.

“They misdiagnosed it four times,” she says.

Today, as an adult, she is totally deaf in her left ear and has 30 percent “speech discrimination” in her right. A hearing aid helps boost that number to 80 percent.

Elke (her name is pronounced “Elk-uh”) earned her degree at Gallaudet University, a liberal arts university for the deaf in Washington, D.C.

Then she became a Methodist pastor. She now leads worship at Baker United Methodist Church in Baker City.


Dampest December day in 24 years

Santa would have needed pontoons on his sleigh had he flown in a few days early in Baker County.

Sunday was the wettest December day here in almost a quarter century.

The rainfall total at the Baker City Airport — and it was spared the storm’s full onslaught — was .58 of an inch.

That’s the most in a single December day at the airport since Dec. 2, 1980, when a deluge dropped .64 of an inch.

Sunday was also the fourth-wettest December day at the airport since at least 1943.

The weekend wasn’t a total washout, however.

It was more of a whiteout, in fact, high in the Elkhorn Mountains.

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