  • Crews have been busy cleaning up the former Pacific Power substation site in Redmond over the past week. The substation was relocated to make way for the incoming highway reroute and the hazardous materials -- mostly asbestos-contaminated -- are being removed before road crews move in. Soil testing for PCBs will also be done and any contaminated soil removed.
  • There are at least two people to vote for in each open seat in the upcoming Redmond School Board election but few takers for open positions on local special district boards. Paul Rodby, business owner and longtime community volunteer, will be running against incumbent and board chair Tim Carpenter. Retired postmaster William Layton is up against retired teacher Jim Erickson, who was appointed to his seat last year. The other contested races in the area are the Crooked River Special Road District, which has six people vying for two positions, and the CRR Rural Fire Protection District, which has two newcomers trying for position five.
