I  Ililii Jlillllllg[Jallilt ili! :1 i"e ra - December 31,2008 - VouR COMMUNITV Page 15 TilE COPS We have seen semi's "'parked" in the middle turn lane on main street. We often see trucks in front of McDonalds which is also near the police station. Is this legal? It seems like a safety issue. Good question. As a matter of fact I had to go back and study the "Parking, Stopping and Stand- ing" statutes before answering. As I understand your question, you are referring to large trucks that sometimes park in the turn lane or alongside the roadway to make a delivery to a business. You might also see this on smaller side streets, when a truck temporarily stops to load or unload at a business with too small of a parking lot or no parking lot at all. As you can imagine, in many urban areas the only way trucks can make business deliveries is to temporar- ily park in the street. In Oregon, there are actually three main statutes that make up the "'no parking" laws.  811.550 - 811.560) The parking you de- scribed may be lawful if it is im- practicable to park off the roadway and the truck is "parked momen- tarily for the purposes of and while actually loading or unloading prop- erty or passenges." I believe each situation would have to be evaluated on its own to see if a violation was occurring. If you see this occurring and believe a imminent safety risk is present, please call us and we will be glad to takea look.

"The owner of the vehicle called and reported finding suspicious items in it." Sweet Home Police Sgt. Jeff Lynn said. He found that his camper had been entered while he was gone and discovered the items when he went into it. A police officer responded at approximately 1:55 p.m. to the location, a camper parked in front of 1004 Nandina St., and located what he believed were items needed for a meth lab.

It's a no-win solution. During this holiday season, and throughout the new year, show appreciation and respect for the health and happiness of yourself and others - choose a designated driver when attending a party. When hosting a party, be sure to supply non- alcoholic beverages for your guests who are driving.
