April 11 2007

  • Election season is gearing up and this week's Spokesman features a Q & A with the four candidates vying for Redmond School Board seats. Next week the feature will continue, with more questions designed to inform voters about their vote.
  • The large brass plaque installed to honor Culver resident Rex T. Barber near his namesake bridge across the Crooked River gorge has been stolen. Someone chiseled the plaque off its large rock home sometime around April 6. Anyone with information is encouraged to call OSP at 1-800-542-7888.
  • Redmond Area Park and Recreation District's budget committee is working towards a public hearing on its proposed budget -- expected to be about $2 million -- June 14. Property taxes yield about half RAPRD's annual budget, the rest comes from user fees and other sources.
  • The city of Redmond is also working on next year's budget. The proposed budget is available for review at city hall or those interested can attend the public committee meetings April 18 and May 2 at Redmond Fire & Rescue, 341 NW Dogwood.
