League Championships to earn the 3rd seed to the OSAA state playoffs. On
Wednesday they will play Willamette Valley Christian with a tentative
start time of 6:30pm. The game will be played at Blanchet Catholic High
School. As details arise, I'll pass them onto you ASAP. It is only a
quick jaunt up I-5. It would be great to have the support of our awesome
fans.
The football team will travel to Alsea on Thursday for a 6pm start to

MeetingRAINBOW: People had a chance to place some priorities on places that matter to them last Wednesday night. They did it by marking up maps to show which U.S. Forest Service roads they use and what sort of special places they feel are along those routes.
“You should mark the areas that you appreciate - maybe because you work up there,” explained Matt Peterson, assistant  recreation  officer for the Willamette Forest. Using comment sheets linked to the marked up maps, people were also encouraged to list some of their thoughts on why those areas are important, what they do there and what sort of road management would be appropriate.

Eugene Water & Electric Board crews are responding to multiple outages in Eugene and the McKenzie River Valley caused by high wind gusts on Saturday.

Most of the outages are reported in the Thurston, Hayden Bridge and Walterville areas, although smaller outages are being reported throughout the utility’s service area. There is no current estimate of how many customers are out of power.

High winds began after 11 a.m. Saturday morning and have continued through early afternoon.

The football team stayed with the Mohawk Indians through the 3rd quarter before the Indians pulled away with the win.
I hope you all can make it out to Junction City this weekend to cheer on our girls as they fight for a State Playoff berth.

Golf courseWALTERVILLE: A plan that could have led to the redevelopment the McKenzie River Golf Course as a 27-home subdivision was rejected by Lane County last week. The decision by county planning director Matt Laird took into account current zoning, which would have allowed the 59-acre parcel to be divided up as 2-acre lots, but called into question how that could occur in an area identified as a flood zone.
 Besides conforming to the allowable lot sizes, the plan also wouldn’t have conflicted with transportation patterns in the neighborhood and the placement of utilities. The development would have conformed to the county’s riparian code for structural setbacks from Class 1 streams while also proposing the construction of bio swales, “rain gardens,” and other retention devices to collect storm water and allow it to percolate underground before flowing into the river.
