Everybody knows Les Schwab has tires – thousands of them. Last week, Schwab broke ground on a project that'll give his tire business a place to store some of them. The new building will be situated on the south side of a 50 acre parcel on Millican Road. When completed, the huge 350 ft. by 1,285 ft. building will cover 10.33 acres and serve as warehouse, truck depot and staging area.

With the discovery by divers of a sinkhole, the source of major seepage from Ochoco Dam may have finally been identified. Construction representative Tom Hooper said underwater divers conducting dye tests along the face of the dam made the discovery late last week.
