The end of a fantastic fall athletic season has come to a close. Our
football team ended their season with a convincing win at Alsea to
finish the season at 2-7. Thank you all for the support.
On Saturday our middle school volleyball team won the MWL middle school
tournament by defeating Alsea in 3 exciting sets.
Also on Saturday our High School volleyball team made the long trek to
Dufur to take on the Rangers for a 2nd round OSAA state playoff match.
It was an exciting match, but in the end Dufur came out victorious.

Green IslandGREEN ISLAND: A million dollar project to recreate the way water used to flow has been underway this summer on the lower McKenzie River. The site formerly was home to gravel pits.
Crews from Wildish Construction Company moved over 110,000 cubic yards of gravel as they worked to recreate habitat for fish as part of the Coburg Aggregate Reclamation Project. Until the McKenzie River Trust purchased this 56-acre parcel in 2010, the site was mined for sand and gravel. The mining left behind steep gravel pits with few places for native plants to take hold.

LighthouseBy Finn J.D. John
It was late December, 1856, and Thomas Smith, proud owner of the intrepid little 104-foot barque Desdemona, was in a hurry.
Smith stood to make a particularly nice profit if the shipment of general merchandise the Desdemona was carrying out of San Francisco reached Astoria on or before New Year’s Day. So he proposed a deal to the captain of his ship, Francis Williams: Get the cargo into port by New Year’s Day, and he would be rewarded with the price of a new Sunday suit.

FINN ROCK: “I’ve been trying to emphasize the idea of public relations and relationship building,” was the way Jim Thomas explained his work as the new McKenzie Schools superintendent. Speaking at last week’s meeting of the school board, he encouraged the district to again work on developing a strategic plan. Referring to past experiences with similar exercises, Thomas said, “By the time you’re done with it the local community is involved and it becomes like a living document. I’d like to throw it out just to get your input.”
Board member Alyssa Brownlee said she’d had some experience with the strategic planning process when she worked at Clark College. “Initially there was a lot of anticipation and resistance,” she recalled. “I myself was thinking about another thing to do, more papers to fill out. After we went through the process I actually found it was kind of fun. Having clear goals that we all worked on was really helpful,” she added.
Referring to the school’s previous strategic plan, board member Kathy Keable said that it has lain dormant in part because it had occurred at a “rather tumultuous time for the district.” Keable felt the study, conducted with the Planning, Public Policy and Management  program at the University of Oregon, “Was a start but we didn’t keep it going and really look at it to make changes. It should be something that’s ours and not theirs.” (Click title to continue)
