Local riders to enter
“Express”
Approximately 15 riders of the Cottage Grove Riding
Club will take part in a “Pony Express” between Eugene
and Roseburg early Sunday morning. The riders are rac-
ing against the Southern Pacifi c “Nightcrawler,” which
runs from Portland to Ashland.
The train leaves Eugene at midnight and is supposed to
arrive in Cottage Grove at 12:50 a.m. It reaches Roseburg
at 3:10 a.m.
The Express is being whipped up as a protest against
the slowness of the Espee’s “Rogue River” passenger
train which the Company is planning to discontinue. Rid-
ers from other communities will enter the express too.
Roseburg is trying to have an early morning celebra-
tion to greet the riders and the train. Included in the pro-
gram is a turtle race. (Symbolic, perhaps).

Row River Trail mile

From the Mosby Creek trailhead to
the top of the Row River Trail, there
are mile markers every one-half mile.
Many of the numeric discs, mounted
on posts, have either fallen off or
been pried off. The Public Works
Department recently ordered 64 re-
placement mile marker discs to re-

or missing. Initially, the discs will be
replaced on the existing mile marker

by refi ning it themselves would
expose themselves to sometimes
deadly levels of both alpha and
gamma radiation. Miners who
worked in underground mines
would spend the entire work-
day inhaling radioactive dust
— sometimes they’d have com-
petitions at the end of the day,
breathing on the Geiger counter
and betting on whose exhala-
tions would raise the needle
highest. For most of them, death
from lung cancer was not more
than a decade or two away after
that kind of exposure. Oregon
had just one underground op-
eration, part of the White King
mine.
Nor did Oregon sacrifi ce any
priceless relics of its ancient
past on the altar of uranium
profi ts, as did Utah. In July
1955, a geologist there found
an almost complete skeleton of
a juvenile stegosaurus — but
the petrifi cation of the bones
had occurred with uranium-rich
minerals. Into the processing
mill the priceless 150-million-
year-old artifact went, yielding
for its happy fi nder a few hun-
dred dollars’ worth of uranium.
A similar fate befell a massive
log of petrifi ed wood, 100 feet
long and four feet in diameter.
Oregon didn’t exactly get off
scot-free, though. Today, both

the White King and the Lucky
Lass are Superfund cleanup
sites.
In recent years, proposals
have been fl oated for a resump-
tion of uranium mining in East-
ern Oregon, under the auspices
of major mining companies that
would presumably follow better
practices. Unlike the situation
in the 1950s, though, there has
been considerable resistance to
these plans. Hundreds of tons
of high-grade “yellowcake” ore
remains out there in the Oregon
high desert, and mining it could
yield plenty of good-paying jobs
— but a substantial percentage
of the population is no longer
convinced it’s worth the risk.
