Looking for a fun, interesting and educational winter activity suitable for the whole family?

Try “ecological tourism” provided by Alice Trindle and her business partner, Susan Triplett. And don’t leave home without your camera.

Trindle and Triplett have contracted with the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to feed elk from a horse-drawn hay wagon.

Finding Doris Anderson near Eagle Creek in early September continues to pay dividends for the Baker County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team.

County commissioners decided Wednesday to allocate $4,880.45 from federal timber payments to reimburse part of the cost of the search for Anderson, the 76-year-old Sandy woman lost 13 days in the Wallowa Mountains before she was found by Baker County Sheriff’s Deputy Travis Ash and Oregon State Police Sr. Trooper Chris Hawkins.

ONE YEAR AGO

A cold snap is one thing.

A cold month is quite another.

Baker City hasn’t reached the latter milestone, but it looks as though it will be a very near thing.

The temperature at the airport hasn’t climbed above freezing since Dec. 11.

That makes 23 consecutive sub-freezing days, if you’re counting.

(And probably you’d rather not.)

The National Weather Service does not expect that we’ll end the chilly stretch this week, either, although the temperature is forecast to rise to 32 on Monday.
