A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Another memory of this April flood

Written April 12th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

By now we’ve probably all had our fill of high-water photos. So here’s what should be the last installment on this site, a glimpse of navigation on Albany’s Bryant Park.


Park’s open, so let’s ride through it

Written March 7th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

[youtube video=”KHIXjgXkSSo”] This should be the last mention of Bryant Park on this site for a while, don’t you think? But since the park’s locked gates were an item on Sunday and Tuesday, it’s only fair to report that the gates are open again now.

Written March 5th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Speaking of Bryant Park in Albany, we now have an answer as to why the entrance and exit gates were still locked on Monday: Fear of flooding.


Bryant Park: It’s been a full century

Written February 28th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

This is a story about how one thing leads to another, among them the spelling of the name of a park, a big anniversary, and the fount of local history that is the Albany Regional Museum.

On a slow day, watch the river rise

Written April 28th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Idle thoughts: We’re lacking lakes

Written February 13th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

There’s no news here, just an observation: Wouldn’t it be nice if the seasonal wintertime flooding of Albany’s Bryant Park was a permanent thing and people could enjoy something called Bryant Lake all year long?


Bridge to Bryant: Still safe but …

Written September 13th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

Every other day or so, my bike and I cross the Calapooia River on the Third Avenue Bridge. So it was of more than passing interest when I read that the bridge’s substructure was in “critical” shape.


New Year’s ice in Bryant Park

Written December 31st, 2014 by Hasso Hering

On the last day of 2014, part of Albany’s Bryant Park was still under water, as it had been for a week or two. This was not unusual for the season. What was unusual was that near the edges of this temporary lake, ice had formed.


Apostrophes: Revolution’s on hold

Written December 23rd, 2013 by Hasso Hering

With time weighing heavy on my hands, I have been known occasionally to rile a few readers by proposing a revolution. What I had in mind was to overthrow the apostrophe. But now I’m not so sure.
