Smoke Signals
2008 - The Tribe's Cultural Resources Department prepared to
commemorate the return of about 600 items from Oregon State
University's I lorner Collection. The return of the Tribal artifacts was
the fruit of 10 year's worth of negotiations between Oregon Tribes
and the school. Karly in the 20th century, Oregon Agricultural Col
lege professor John Horner used his connections around the state to
collect thousands of objects of "educational value."
2003 - The West Valley Veterans Memorial
was in the final stages of the casting process at
the studios of Burning Palace Bronze in Boring.
Tribal veteran Steve Bobb Sr. was at the foundry
to give final approval and sign the base of the
sculpture. "I'm really happy with it," he said. "I
wouldn't change a thing. The faces look good. It's
exactly what we wanted."
1998 - Construction of the Tribal Administration Building was pro
ceeding well. Construction on the facility began in late August 1997
and completion was scheduled for September 1998. The building will
be 40,000 square feet with two stories and a partial third floor.
1993 - Marvin Carlson was hired as the new general manager of Spirit
Mountain Development Corp. He came to Grand Ronde from Sumner,
Wash., where he was executive director of the Small Tribes Organization
of Western Washington. He held an undergraduate degree in bio-chemistry
and physics from the University of California at Berkeley and an
MBA from the University of California Western in Santa Ana.
1988 - Tribal Chair Mark Mercier reported on amendments to the
Tribe's Election Ordinance. Now that only three Tribal Council seats
will be contested annually, the ordinance was amended to have Tribal
Council nominations occur during the May General Council meet
ing with elections being held "sometime in September of each year."
Write-in candidates will be allowed, but only until May 31.
Yesteryears is a look back at Tribal history in five-year incre
ments through the pages of Smoke Signals.
