mother, Magui Verdugo,
makes most of the items
from scratch. Her mom,
she said, bought the bright
green truck on a whim.
“It was really sponta-
neous,” she said. “My mom
fell in love with the color,
and she’s always doing
stuff like this, making cute
little food things.”
The Hermiston family
expects they won’t likely
make much money in the
remaining weeks of this
season, but they hope to get
their name out there and be
more established next year.
The food truck joined
Southern Twain BBQ and
Tacos Garcia last week at
the city’s new summer food
truck pod on Orchard Ave-
nue across from the post
office. Known as Third
Street Eats, the pod opened
as a pilot program in April
and the city provided tables
and shade.
Joselyne said that so far
not many food trucks had
signed on, but she knows
of a few different people
who are planning to open a
truck there eventually.

— East Oregonian staff
of the largest dermatology
groups in the Northwest, Sil-
ver Falls Dermatology, will
be opening its doors in Pend-
leton next month.
Der matology-trained
family nurse practitioner
Lorrie Weldon will be the
primary care provider at the
clinic. She’s new to the Sil-
ver Falls team, and is coming
from California.
“I visited Pendleton and
I liked the town, the people
there seem very friendly,”
she said.
Weldon has nursing
degrees from John Hopkins
School of Nursing and the
University of California, San
Francisco. She said she looks
forward to providing care in
the area.
“Most people might have
to commute to Washington
for dermatology care right
now,” she said. “There’s
a need.”
Dr. John
Young, who
founded Sil-
Der matol-
A l l e r g y,
said the clinic is special in
the sense that Weldon will
be linked into an electronic
platform that allows her to
communicate with and get
information from other der-
matology specialists that
work with Silver Falls, across
the region, in real time.
“Our model is kind of
like teledermatology on ste-
roids,” Young said. “That’s
worked very well for us,
allowing us to take care of
lesser served areas.”
The Pendleton location is
the 27th Silver Falls Derma-
tology clinic to open in the
Pacific Northwest.
Young, who is originally
from New Orleans, said
inspiration for starting Sil-
ver Falls Dermatology came
from his time as a flight sur-
geon in the Air Force.
“In the military, I found
it was hard to get people
into specialists. I wanted
to be a specialist who was
embracing the primary
care world by providing
Silver Falls Dermatology
will open and start accept-
ing new patients on Sept.
3. The clinic will be located
at 1100 Southgate, Suite 6,
Pendleton. Those interest-
ed can call 541-210-5771
for information or to set
up an appointment
access,” he said.
Young studied at Loui-
siana State University, and
went on to earn his medical
degree from Baylor College
of Medicine in Houston.
The Pendleton clinic will
provide diagnosis and treat-
ment of hair, skin and nail
conditions like acne, psoria-
sis, bacterial and viral infec-
tions and herpes. They also
provide allergy-immunology
The office will accept
including Medicaid.
“For the foreseeable
future, we’ll have the capac-
ity to have people seen the
same week they call. We
try to keep our waits and
our waiting lists short,” said
Rachael Rossman, market-
ing director for Silver Falls.
Confederated Tribes of Grand
Ronde purchase paper mill site
Oregon Public Broadcasting
federated Tribes of Grand Ronde final-
ized their purchase of the former Blue
Heron paper mill site at Willamette Falls
on Wednesday.
Once home to the Charcowah vil-
lage of the Clowewalla, the Confederated
Tribes of Grand Ronde bought the 23-acre
site from Washington developer George
Heidgerken. The property is located within
the tribes’ ancestral homelands and holds
significant historical and cultural impor-
tance for the Grand Ronde.
“This is a historic day for the Grand
Ronde Tribe and our people,” Cheryle A.
Kennedy, chairwoman for the Confed-
erated Tribes of Grand Ronde, said in a
statement. “Since 1855 the government
has worked to disconnect our people from
our homelands. Today, we’re reclaiming a
piece of those lands and resurrecting our
role as caretakers to Willamette Falls — a
responsibility left to us by our ancestors.”
The area is part of the lands ceded to
the United States government under the
Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855. Follow-
ing the treaty, tribal members were forcibly
removed from Willamette Falls and relo-
cated to Grand Ronde.
