60 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 14, 1957 State police reported today that the Anthony Lakes road is open and that the lake is no longer frozen. 25 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 15, 1992 That fascinating sea of gold in the valley just north of Baker City has proven to be a useful crop for one of the area’s agricultural producers. It’s canola, an oilseed crop that produces a popular no-cholesterol cooking oil. 10 YEARS AGO from the Baker City Herald June 14, 2007 Baker County’s mental health advisory committee voted unanimously Wednesday to recommend changes in county oversight of Mountain Valley Mental Health. Among other things, the committee wants County Commission Chair Fred Warner Jr. to replace fellow Commissioner Carl Stiff on the MVMH board. It also wants the agency’s contract with the county extended up to six months — rather than the traditional yearlong automatic renewal — and calls on the county to “explore possible alternatives to the current system,” including county administration of the agency. ONE YEAR AGO from the Baker City Herald June 15, 2016 Mayor Kim Mosier asked those present to observe a moment of silence at Tuesday’s Baker City Council meeting to honor the victims of the shooting at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub Sunday. After quoting former President Teddy Roosevelt and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Mosier said the Council’s service to its community is a small example of working toward peace. “We all come in here with different backgrounds and perspectives and ideas,” Mosier said. “We use our differences to come to the best decision on all of the issues that we have to come together on, rather than using our differences to divide us and to create tragedy.”60 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 14, 1957 State police reported today that the Anthony Lakes road is open and that the lake is no longer frozen. 25 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 15, 1992 That fascinating sea of gold in the valley just north of Baker City has proven to be a useful crop for one of the area’s agricultural producers.
