From all accounts, the plan- ning and logistics for this spec- tacular event went off about as smoothly as could have been hoped for, with after-event traffic jams be- ing the primary challenge for some travelers. ]his real-life event provided an excellent opportunity for us to work with multiple community partners to help keep our residents and visitors healthy and safe, and I believe we can all feel very good with the outcome. And, as an added bonus, we were all treated to an amazing sky show for the ages. Thanks to all! Larry A. Mullins President/Chief Executive Officer Samaritan Health Services Accusations against Right unfounded Editor: I appreciated your column about Jeani West (July 26). I usually agreed with her when I read her letters. Sometimes a let- ter is so long it loses me, but I get a basic flavor for that writer. I ap- preciated her. I think she would have writ- ten about the insanity in the East in Virginia and North Carolina. So I will try to say at least what I feel, which seemed to agree with what she felt. I just feel so distressed about all of it, that I don't know what to address first. Neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan groups and others like them - peo- ple who put the general peaceful population in danger - have free- dom of speech, but I'm sorry they do. Ditto for people who chant. When a protest group is chanting, they are such a waste of time to everyone. Name-calling and chant- ing accomplishes nothing except to whip up a destructive frenzy on both sides - the ones doing it and the ones sick of it, and they cannot exist together peacefully. Anyone who chants "No Cops!" are a lawless group who need to be physically removed. The rest of us want the people there to prevent lawlessness. Let them chant their dangerous hate rhetoric in prison. See Letters, Page 5 Sweet Home volunteer fire- men were kept hopping this week by numerous little fires. One blaze, located near the construction site for the Foster dam powerhouse, took the largest toll in damages. The fire was in one of the car- penter work sheds. About $8,000 in damage was inflicted to the shed and the many tools housed in the building. The fire, located on the Vera Smith property, caused no prop- erty damage. A carelessly tossed cigarette or match was blamed. An "Old Fashioned Fair" is on tap for this year's annual Holley Fair, it was announced by general chairman Mrs. Levitt Homer. The fair is being sponsored this year by the Holley Grange which is celebrating its centennial year and the centennial theme be carried out throughout the fair. Old-fashioned costumes will be the general attire along with other old fashioned displays. August 26, 1992 The past two weeks have been ,very special for Carolyn Steiner of 975 1st Ave. She has been enjoying her va- cation from a secretarial post at CSC/Beta Corvallis to play hostess to her family - many coming from the east coast. "This was the first time all my kids were going to be together at the same time in awhile" Mrs. Steiner said. "We had visited back and forth sometimes at Boston or meeting in Chicago for a wed- ding." She said her sister and her son decided to come from Chicago and then her nephew, his wife and little baby came too. Everyone loves a birthday party. Especially a party to cele- brate the the 40th anniversary of a facility where many of the party- goers were born. The Lebanon Community Hospital celebrated its 40th birth- day Saturday in grand style with a time of reflections, registrations, historical displays, refreshments, games for children, a petting zoo, stage entertainment, and many other activities.
