Crowfoot School is no more
Demolition of Crowfoot School began Monday morning. Crowfoot School opened in 1945 and closed its doors in 2002. According to the Lebanon School District website, the school got its first indoor plumbing in 1952, when the Crowfoot school District merged with the Waterloo School District, due to an influx of money from the merging of the schools. For many years, the school housed Crowfoot area students in grades 3, 4 and 5.

City Police Officers Withdraw Resignations
City council accepted the withdrawal of resignation of ten members of the Lebanon Police Force Tuesday evening at the regular council meeting. A letter signed by each of the officers asked that their mass resignation of April 12 be rescinded.
Mayor Ken Haevernick said that the action came as a result of failure of communication and that officers had been unaware of studies being made by city officials in an effort to improve pay and working conditions.
Hoodoo Main Lodge Destroyed Tuesday
The main lodge at Hoodoo Ski Bowl was destroyed by fire around noon Tuesday. Ski tows, power plant equipment, day lodge and public service buildings were saved.
Leon Foster, manager of the corporation-owned resort, estimated the loss at more than $100,000. Much of that is covered by insurance.
The three-store 140 by 30 foot lodge was discovered aflame by a mailman about 12:30 p.m. U.S. Forest fire fighters from Sisters and McKenzie Bridge and Oregon Highway personnel managed to prevent the flames from spreading to other buildings.
