1989: Residents participate in holiday light competition
1969 — Springwater resident Kathy Eaton was competing in the Miss Milwaukie Pageant. She was the senior class treasurer and choir historian at Estacada High School and was the runner up in the Estacada's Junior Miss Pageant. After graduating from high school, she planned to study educa-
tion at Oregon State University.
1979 — Ed Whitemore was the new leader of the Estacada Ranger District. He was an 18-year veteran of the U.S. Forest Service and said that he placed a high priority on being responsive to the public. "We have to be a service organization. We're here to help the public use the forest," he added.
1989 — Upcoming Christmas events around town included a holiday craft sale at the Springwater Grange, a holiday dinner at the Eagle Creek Grange and a holiday light competition among local houses.
1999 — Erin Fulop was the newspaper's student of the week. She was in eighth grade, and her favorite part of school was "getting to change classes." She liked science and math
and disliked homework.
She played soccer and the drums and hoped to
become an architect or a biologist.
2009 — The Tedrow family of Estacada and the Varitz Foundation of West Linn were named Contributors of the Year at the Estacada Area Food Bank. "The Tedrow family has supported the food bank with donations for many years and that support has even increased in these difficult economic times," said Phyllis Varnell, director of the food bank. "The money the Tedrows sent to the food bank goes a long way in purchasing food. We really appreciate the support." Meanwhile, the Varitz Foundation had sent the Estacada Area Food Bank "a significant amount of money" each quarter of the year. The foundation had ties through the Estacada area through Springwater Presbyterian Church. "Without this type of help, we would be unable to provide our usual level of service," Varnell said.
2018 — Bathhouse Two at Bagby Hot Springs on the Mt. Hood National Forest was closed by the U.S. Forest Service because of structural deterioration. The wooden structure with five private soaking tubs, was showing signs of rot because of exposure to the elements. Vandalism had also contributed to the deterioration of the structure on the Clackamas River Ranger District. Forest Service staff hoped to develop a long-term plan for the site that would require less maintenance and be less prone to vandalism.
