Oregon Department of Corrections representative visits Madras to discuss possible prison site 25 years ago. On last Friday, in the section east of Ashwood known as the Muddy Creek section, occurred one of the worst cloud bursts and waterspouts that has ever occurred in the territory. In a letter to County Roadmaster Raymond Heider, Jesse Kilts, well-known resident of that section says, "The cloud burst today (Friday) was serious and did a great deal of damage. Muddy Creek fill is completely washed out and the bridge at Davis' is gone. To a great extent, the road is torn up and in many places it is filled with rock. My impression is that it is much worse farther down the creek. I believe the bridge at the Frates place is out as I don't see how it could possibly stand the strain of the rushing waters. Muddy Creek was a wide flooded river taking trees and boulders with it. From the top of the hill at Ollers I could see Cherry Creek was full to the banks." Mr. Heider left Wednesday morning to view the damage and prepare for the necessary repairs. This is a portion of the road from Ashwood to Mitchell and was only recently completed. People who had traveled the road say that it was an excellent piece of road construction, being better than the average road in this section. It is probable that rebuilding the road will commence at once, although members of the County Court have, as yet, not learned the exact condition of it.
