InStove hosts
Spring Breakers
Foundation grants
highlight community
betterment efforts
ast week brought a different type of Spring Break for 19
visitors to Cottage Grove. Students ranging from fresh-
man to senior level at the University of Redlands in Southern
California traveled to Cottage Grove to spend their Spring Break
at Institutional Stove Solutions with local resident and co-found-
er Fred Colgan.
Students shared a goal of serving the community and complet-
ing their community service graduation requirement.
Over the days, the group made their own traditional three
stone fi re, bundled fi rewood and carried it for two kilometers as
a simulation of what women in developing countries do multiple
times a day, made stoves out of mud, tended to the Community
Sharing garden and learned about the issues behind open fi re
Emma Wade, 17, said she “never could have imagined that so
much life-changing work comes out of this little Oregon town.”
Likewise, Kiersten Langerud called the week “an incredible,
eye-opening experience.”
“InStove has opened my eyes on how three stone fi res heav-
ily impact not only the environment but also the health of many
women providing for their families. It is comforting to know that
so many organizations like InStove are trying to help the issues
at hand,” declared Kimberly Nevarez.

Ordinance bars parking in fi re lanes on private property
new ordinance passed by
the Cottage Grove City
Council allows police to cite
drivers who park their vehicles
in fi re lanes on private property.
Offi cer Cheri Nelson of the
Cottage Grove Police Depart-
ment said that issues with driv-
ers parking in fi re lanes at places
like Cottage Grove High School
— where such parking often
occurs during games or other
events — prompted the City
Council to explore Ordinance

the City’s parking code and
goes into effect on Wednesday,
March 11.

“There have been so many
issues at CGHS,” Nelson said.
“The biggest problem is at bas-
ketball and football games. As
long as the fi re lane is marked
by a red curb or signage, if a
driver leaves the vehicle unat-
tended there, it could be cited or
potentially towed,” Nelson said.

An article in the Feb. 25 Sen-
tinel discussing the “Taste
of Creswell” event last week
described Creswell’s Burlap
and Lace as a consignment
shop. In reality, the shop is
not a consignment shop and
is classifi ed by its owners as
a “vintage and antique store.”
The Sentinel regrets the error
and its impact.
