Weekday Wrap: Grant County seeks to address wildfire risk along evacuation routes
Grant County will clear brush and remove invasive grasses that could ignite. Officials in Oregon’s Grant County plan to remove flammable brush from roadsides along 308 miles of roads that serve as wildfire evacuation routes, with the assistance of a $9.9 million U.S. Department of Agriculture grant. The funds will allow the county to buy a John Deere tractor equipped to remove roadside fuels, and will also pay for herbicide application over invasive grasses in the county. Unlike some federally funded efforts, this program seeks to address wildfire risk both on public lands and in privately managed areas. “Wildfire does not recognize boundaries, so it can burn from federal land onto private land or private to federal land,” said Irene Jerome, fire protection coordinator for Grant County.

Letter: Chetco Avenue Study
We haul lime to farmers south of town from Salem and deal with this situation daily from June to August. I have got to the point that we use the inside lane because of the parking, cars park and not close enough to the curb and it squeezes use with cars in the passing lane, also they open doors without checking traffic. We've been fortunate not to have an accident. I knew this was coming but wondered how it would be done without removing buildings. Thanks for the time. Gene Ferschweiler Gervais
