2009: Estacada establishments score well on health inspections
1969: The Women's Activities Club at the Garfield Grange encouraged attendees to bring scissors to an upcoming meeting, "as there will be use for them." "Let's have a good crowd come out. The more the merrier," The News reported.
1979: Several community members were upset by sex education videos that were shown to local fourth and fifth grade students. New Life Center Pastor Bill Hash called the movies "garbage," while Pastor Wesley West of Estacada Assembly of God thought they were "good films," but potentially more suitable for middle-school-aged children. Several School Board members cited the fact that the films were medically accurate.
1989: Listings from the classified advertisements included an antique show, piano tuning and a call for host families for foreign exchange students from Spain.
1999: Eagle Creek Jackpot owners Don and Margie Williams donated $1,500 to Eagle Creek Elementary School. The store also awarded four graduation seniors with scholarships of $500 each.
2009: During recent Clackamas County Health inspections, the majority of Estacada restaurants scored in the 90-100 range. The three highest-scoring establishments were Hitchin Post Pizza, Subway and Scenes 'N Beans. "We do two unannounced inspections each year, and we do additional inspections if necessary. We use a scoring system starting at 100 percent. We subtract 1 or 2 points for non-critical items, and 4 of 5 points for critical items, which are considered more serious and can cause foodborne illness. Repeat penalty points can be assessed if specific items are repeated," said Steven Dahl, environmental health manager.
2018: Those in search of unusual items could stop by the Vintage Outdoor Markets at Wade Creek House Antiques. Some vendors found their items at estate sales or garage sales, while others make the creations themselves. "You name it. (The vendors) are all scavengers and collectors and work hard at finding stuff. Everything is different. You won't find two things alike," said Becky McFarland of Wade Creek House, noting that she's found everything from tables and chairs to a wool military blanket while browsing the market's wares.
