The sheriff's office was called concerning burglaries last week, with one family finding that the perpetrators had entered the house and burglarized it while they were sleeping in their beds. Time and time again the Community Council and the sheriff's office have teamed up to restart the Neighbor Watch program only to have no one attend the meetings. These illegal activities are escalating and must be stopped before someone gets physically hurt. We really are our "brother's keeper" when it comes to our neighbors; after all they may stop someone from burglarizing you just by calling 911.
Friends and family of Clauda (Thomas) D'Angelo join her in grieving the loss of her husband Larry. Clauda has lived in the area since early childhood and is very active in the Cure for Cancer.

The Sundowners and the Twin City Rovers RV Clubs met at Lewis and Clark Campgrounds for a fun-filled weekend of cards, conversation, coffee, and camaraderie.

On Oct. 29, the OLESS will host The Columbia Gorge Paranormal Society, who will visit the Activity Center with real life stories.

A thought to remember: I love the sense of solidarity when an entire line teams up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front, after passing all of us who were patiently waiting.
