Dec. 19, 2007 issue

  • This week we looked at foreclosures in Deschutes County, which have increased steeply since last year. According to the Deschutes County Clerk's office, many homes seen listed in legal announcements are saved from actual foreclosure before the due date, either by last-minute funds or purchase.
  • The Redmond School District is not so sure it wants to rush into a spring school construction bond. No one disputes the need for more schools, especially a high school, but RSD board members and staff are concerned about taking the time to prepare a bond that meets both taxpayers and district needs.
  • There's plenty of time to buy a commemorative brick for Redmond's new Legion Park memorial plaza. Twenty-five dollars buys three lines of text on a brick for the park that should be open by mid-2008. Stop by the American Legion Post on Glacier Avenue or call 548-3923.
  • Redmond's Commission on Art in Public Places is hoping to raise enough funds to buy three statues: one small one for downtown and two larger pieces for the south and eastern 'gateways' into town.
