ARCHIVE PHOTO - In 1980, 23 buffaloes made their way to Eagle Creek.

1980 — Eagle Creek had a series of new four legged residents. Mustang Gas and Oil Co. owner Jim Skytel purchased 23 buffaloes at an auction in South Dakota. He encouraged those interested to visit his pasture and take photos of the creatures. Skytel planned to sell the animals to supermarkets in several years.

1990 — The Safari Club was offering a steak and lobster dinner for $16.95. There would also be live music from the Green River Band, which attendees were encouraged to dance along to.

2000 — Lisa Marie Allen was the newspaper's student of the week. She was a sophomore at Estacada High School and a member of the National Honor Society, FIrst Priority, the golf team and peer mediation, and also played piano and violin. She hoped to eventually attend medical school.

2010 — Four Estacada students took home more than 100 plaques, medallions and trophies during an event at the Junior Dragsters. Dustin Day finished second in Junior Lightening Class, Jessie Skerjane tied for second in Junior Thunder and Katie Day finished in third in the 8- to 9-year-old division.

2019 — The Estacada High School game club was meeting weekly for activities like Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and a variety of video games. When the club was formed in 2017, there were three members. Last year, they were up to 12.

"The best part of the club is getting together and having some fun," said Skyler Kutshell, a senior at Estacada High School and founding member of the group.
