100 Years Ago
From the East Oregonian
Nov. 29, 1917
There was a rainbow in the sky at 5
o’clock this morning, two hours before
sunrise. It wasn’t observed by a great many
residents for the reason that its appearance
came when most everybody was abed, but
it was observed by a number of people who
are not in the habit of “seeing things.” Among
those who noticed it was P.F. Hegeman of
this city who was coming over from Pasco on
the mixed train. Just before the train reached
Helix, the brakeman called the passengers out
and pointed out the peculiar phenomenon.
The moon was still shining and a light mist
was falling. In the east was an immense arc
with all of the colors of the rainbow plainly
visible. It was described as a sight as beautiful
as it was unusual.
50 Years Ago
From the East Oregonian
Nov. 29, 1967
State police this morning were still inves-
tigating two cabin fires Monday evening at
Langdon Lake, 50 miles northwest of Pend-
leton. The cabins were owned by sisters of St.
Anthony Hospital, Pendleton, and St. Joseph
Hospital, La Grande. The fire was reported at
6:20 p.m., the state police said. Firemen from
Athena, Agri-Chem of Athena and the state
police fought the fire.
25 Years Ago
From the East Oregonian
Nov. 29, 1992
An engineering firm is pioneering tech-
nology that could prevent a $15-million-per-
year loss to agriculture in the Hermiston area.
For centuries groundwater has seeped out of
the Blue Mountains, but only in the past 50
years has it become the lifeblood of a rich
agriculture industry in west Umatilla County.
But that underground water supply is not
limitless, and growers face the real possibility
of losing a significant source for irrigation
as the state tightens its regulations of deep-
aquifer wells. However, a pilot program of an
Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) system
will go online this spring at the Madison
Ranches along the Buttercreek Highway. The
system will allow farmers to store surface
water deep within the aquifer.
