2009: Teenager shows off Michael Jackson moves at Christmas party
1969 — Showings at the Broadway Theatre included "In the Heat of the Night," "Ski America" and "Alaskan Safari."
1979 — A reader wrote into Pat Anderson's advice column about an issue she was having with her sister-in-law. The writer's sister-in-law suspected she wrote a previous letter to Anderson about a dirty house. "I didn't write the letter but I should have," wrote 'Doesn't like Cruddy Houses.' "Her house isn't just grubby, it is plain cruddy. Maybe I shouldn't have written this but now she at least has a reason for being mad." Anderson advised "Doesn't like Cruddy Houses" to help her sister-in-law with housekeeping or stay out of her dirty abode.
1989 — Classified advertisements three decades ago included farm machinery for sale, a listing for a new flower shop on Springwater Road and a request for a housekeeper at Alton Collins Retreat Center.
1999 — Items from the newspaper's community calendar included a muscle-man volleyball game, a meeting of the Estacada Community Planning Organization and an Estacada Junior High School concert at the Estacada Senior Center.
2009 — Eagle Creek teenager Michael Danforth performed Michael Jackson's dances during the 300 Main Christmas party. Danforth, 16 and a sophomore at Portland Lutheran High School, performed five numbers from Michael Jackson's discography. He was inspired to perform at 300 Main to give back to the community. "When I see people who have worked hard, I hope I've given something back for what they've given to me," Danforth said.
2018 — Members of Estacada's Girls Who Code Club heard from Andrea Bugni, a 2013 graduate of Estacada High School and a 2017 graduate of University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in computer science.
"(Computer science is) really cool. It's really neat," she said. "You can solve problems. It applies to all sorts of different things."
Bugni was drawn to the field in part because of her interest in the internet.
"I enjoy the internet, and the idea that so much information is out there and someone is giving it to me. It somehow awoke a fascination with computers," she said. "There are a lot of amazing things you can do with a little computer chip."
