No crypto in city water sample

A water sample taken June 1 from the home of a Baker City woman who told city officials she had tested positive for cryptospordiosis did not contain the microscopic parasite, City Manager Mike Kee said today.

Gene Yates didn’t know the source of the harsh bump, but he knew he was in trouble.

When you’re rolling downhill at 35 mph on a pair of tires not much wider than a pencil eraser, any bump is apt to be bad.
