RAINBOW: The Christmas lights and wreath will not be placed on the Belknap Bridge this year due to additional electrical/construction requirements.  
With Belknap Bridge remodel construction scheduled for the summer of 2015, future opportunities for lighting the bridge may be possible.

Leaburg DamLEABURG: Crews from Knight Construction and Wildish Construction are nearing completion of a project that will allow workers to inspect roll gates on the Leaburg Dam without having to drain the lake.
Passers-by may have noticed concrete panels Wildish has been assembling in the parking lot. When the Knight crew lowers them into slotted beams along the face of the dam they will create sort of a “dam within a dam,” according to Eugene Water & Electric Board senior civil engineer Steve Celeste. “That will allow us to test the gate and equipment to make sure it is working properly without draining the lake,” he noted.

I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break. Now that I have my  winter weight on, I'm ready for the cold months ahead.

The middle school girls basketball will travel on 12/2 which is a change  from their original 12/3 date.

This is the opening week of the high school basketball season as we host  Trinity Lutheran on Wednesday. I look forward to seeing some of you out  supporting our Eagles.

GO EAGLES! and DUCKS!

Neil Barrett, McKenzie High School Athletic Director

Forest streamBLUE RIVER: A long term research program at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest will continue for another six years, thanks to a $6.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LETR) is focused on understanding ecological phenomena that occur over a long time span. More than two dozen sites around the country are part of the program.
The Andrews LETR project is designed to understand how climate and land use changes interact to affect forest and stream ecosystems. It will continue to build upon past work by using records from weather stations and stream gages scattered throughout the watershed to reveal how temperature and precipitation vary across the landscape, and how they have changed over time. Researchers will also study how air, water, and nutrients flow through the landscape.
