Watershed Group hosts county forester

Doug Thiesies, forester for Hood River County, will speak at the next Hood River Watershed Group meeting, Tuesday, at 7 p.m. at the OSU Extension Service meeting room at 2990 Experiment Station Road in Hood River.

The county owns almost 31,000 acres of forestland within the county and an additional 18,000 acres in Grant and Umatilla Counties. Thiesies will talk about how they manage their forestlands to ensure a predictable revenue source for the County, while at the same time protecting wildlife, water quality and recreational opportunities.

Other topics on the agenda include a proposed Powerdale Trail Planning grant to be submitted by Columbia Land Trust and a request for support by the Network of Oregon Watershed Councils.

"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
