A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Albany’s new cop shop: Sleek

Written November 17th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

All sharp angles and flat surfaces with clean lines — that’s the just-the-facts impression left by Albany’s new $15.5 million headquarters of the city police.


New station adds a safety feature

Written July 12th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Albany’s new police headquarters will have an emergency safety feature that the current station lacks: A lockable vestibule where people can seek help after hours when the public counter is closed.


Police wetlands: A useless expense

Albany taxpayers are about to pay the city of Eugene $164,307 for the restoration of wetlands there. Why? Because of state and federal rules that make no practical sense at all.


Albany accepts Linn offer for station, armory

Written October 28th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Art dilemma dogs Albany council

Written September 21st, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Written May 31st, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Take a look at Albany police site

Written July 24th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Here’s a closer look at the site where the Albany City Council would like to build a new police headquarters. It’s off Pacific Boulevard S.W., just north of the medical office complex north of 29th Avenue. (I wish the place would get an address to make describing it less cumbersome.)
