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.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
