A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

That’s some big oak log, lying there

For now, a huge Oregon white oak log rests on the north end of Albany’s Oak Street near the Willamette River. It’s an impressive piece of wood.


Rebuilding Sunrise and two streets

Written March 16th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Sunrise Park and sections of two major streets — Hill and Oak — are about to be rebuilt, totaling more than $3 million in city public works spending in South Albany this year.

Written January 19th, 2018 by Hasso Hering
