1999: Martin Luther King Jr. exhibit arrives in Estacada
1969 — The newspaper's "Dodge Items" section outlined the happenings of that area. "Phone service was interrupted for a short time Saturday, and some patrons reported a very brief power outage," The News reported. "The parking lot at Dodge Community Church was blocked by the snow plow, but a large crowd managed to get through for Sunday school and church services."
1979 — Members of the Estacada School District's Classified Employees Association honored classified employees week, which was scheduled from Nov. 5-9. Members of the association included Pat Courtain, Donna Marcus, Leota Clark, Diane Earnest, Frankie Bell and Bill Lobdell.
1989 — Oreo, a cat who lived near the Eagle Fern Veterinary Clinic, was back after leaving on a 10-day misadventure. "Last week the pet turned up missing, and people all over town mobilized to find him. Eventually, Oreo was seen once again outside the veterinary office with a severely broken tail. It's still a real possibility that we'll have to take the tail off. We sure missed him though. We're glad he's back," said Kay Edwards of Eagle Fern Veterinary Clinic.
Oreo made a name for himself around town by climbing into cars and embarking on joyrides.
1999 — Photographs and documents from the life of Martin Luther King Jr. were on display in the Estacada High School Commons and the Estacada Community Center. "Martin Luther King. Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement" was sponsored by the Estacada Arts Commission, the Estacada Citizens for Fairness and the Oregon Council for Humanities. "Surveying the Civil Rights movement from the emergence of Dr. King in 1955 until his death in 1968, the exhibit features 65 black-and-white action photographs, facsimiles of landmark documents and quotations by Dr. King," The News reported.
2009 — Items from the newspaper's Around Town calendar included a meeting of the Estacada Garden Club; a notice about the adopt-a-family program; and a spaghetti dinner and auction fundraiser at Red Barn Preschool.
2018 — The monthly show at the Spiral Gallery was titled "A Fungus Among Us" and featured mushroom-inspired pieces by members of the gallery. Among the artists with work in the show were jewelry maker and painter Sue Dumolt and fiber artist Annette Reisbick. Reisbick created two hats and a shawl and Dumolt made a necklace and a small painting.
Dumolt appreciated having a theme to work with when creating her pieces.
"It makes your creative juices flow more with a creative target and you have to ask how you'll use your skills to make something representative of it," Dumolt said.
