Trail Day: 40 with the ‘44’ to fix!

On Oct. 29 44 Trails and Dirty Finger Bicycle organized a very successful trail day on Mount Hood. More than 40 volunteers showed up to do maintenance on trails that serve mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders. Days like this are necessary to keep these trails safe and accessible for all, said spokesman Joe McCulloch.

Support from the local community was outstanding, he said. Those participating were Double Mountain Brewery and Taproom, Dakine, Dog River Coffee, Doppio Cafe and Lounge, Full Sail Brewery, Hood River News, Knead, Kona Bicycles, Mt. Hood Skibowl, Mountain View Bicycles, New York City Sub Shop, Ovino Market, Pfriem Family Brewers, Shortt Supply, Sellwood Cycle Repair, Sixth Street Bistro, Ten Speed Coffee, TerraSpatial Technologies, Timberline Lodge and the U.S. Forest Service-Barlow Ranger District.

“Without the generosity of the local business community projects such as this are not possible,” McCulloch said.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
