Cleanup on the Periwinkle path: Thanks!

Written April 30th, 2024 by Hasso Hering

Several times over the years, I have reported on the super-messy conditions of the Periwinkle Bikepath, especially the north end that is walled off from the Lowe’s home improvement center. So it was a surprise to see how clean it was when the bike took me there on April 26.


Where the need to clean up never ends

Written May 27th, 2023 by Hasso Hering

Riding the bike on the Periwinkle Bikepath extension behind Lowe’s was easy Saturday because for once, nobody was camped on the path itself.


Once again, this path attracts vandals

Every few weeks a bike ride takes me along the paved path behind Lowe’s in Albany, between the store property and the heavily wooded channel containing Periwinkle Creek.


Can’t sleep? Try property tax reports

Written October 17th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

If you’re interested in property taxes — and who isn’t? — you may want to dive into the tables and reports that Linn and Benton county tax officials have prepared for 2016, ahead of sending out the annual bills. I sampled the material, and here’s what caught my eye.


Bikepath system grows, a little

Written November 20th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Albany’s Periwinkle Bike Path has a new extension, thanks to Lowe’s. The path offers a shortcut of sorts, and I sampled it on Friday afternoon.


Return to the cycling front

Written October 2nd, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Back on the Albany bicycling front (a tranquil retreat from the renewed but fruitless gun debate), the good old Periwinkle Bikepath comes to mind. First, because it’s being lengthened, thus becoming a bit more useful for transportation. And second, because to become truly useful it still needs an intersection fix.


Albany Lowe’s: Any day now

Written April 11th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

It’s been about two months since Lowe’s filed for building permits for its planned Albany home improvement and garden center at Ninth Avenue and Oak, and city officials say the company likely will be cleared to start construction any day now.
