Megan Brown, the daughter of Greg and Debbie Brown of Baker City, is spending the year in South Africa.

The 16-year-old has not only benefited from living in another culture, but has experienced first-hand the political upheaval that resulted in South Africa’s first open elections.

Baker City may be going to the dogs, but it’s a good thing.

A committee has identified 12 sites around town where dog stations can be placed, complete with bags so that dog owners can clean up after their pets.

The committee, which will present its pitch to the Baker City Council Tuesday, has also identified volunteers willing to maintain some of the stations and a custodian for each station.

The Pine Creek wolf pack, which killed four calves and injured seven others in the Halfway area during the first three weeks of April, hasn’t been implicated in any livestock attacks during May.

Both Phillip Perrine, a biologist at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (ODFW) Baker City office, and Barry DelCurto, a Halfway rancher who owns a calf that was injured by wolves on April 18, use the same word to describe the past two weeks.

“Quiet.”

Perrine said data from the GPS tracking collars fitted to two of the pack’s five confirmed wolves suggest the animals have remained in the southern Wallowa Mountains near Fish Lake.

There are no cattle in that area, Perrine said.
