“We’re interested in the over-
all health of the individual,”
Cohen said. “We offer access
to information in our lobby for
non OMMP cardholders, and
it’s a great time to chat before
sales of recreational marijuana
start. We want to be a kind of
resource center for both patients
and non-patients.”
She said that many people
are interested in knowing more
about marijuana but feel intimi-
dated by dispensaries.
“We’re here to educate and
inform,” she said.
The Cottage Grove Library
wrapped up its Summer Read-
ing Program with a visit by
Jay the Magician, shown here
presenting Tristan Mathews
his wand on the occasion of
Mathews' seventh birthday.
Organizers say the reading pro-
gram had a successful summer.
They say 325 children signed up
for the program, themed, “Every
Hero Has a Story” and they read
over 2500 hours in 10 weeks.
In that time, the library had 51
programs that over 1400 people
attended.

last May after operating dis-
pensaries in Los Angeles, and
he said he’s defi nitely excited
for the opportunity to sell to
recreational customers in Cot-
tage Grove.
“It’s a no-brainer,” Llamas
said. “That’s why I moved up
here; I was hoping that this
would happen. I think it’s going
to be good for everybody.”
Jake Boone, manager of
Apothecaria, said he expects the
dispensary “probably will” sell
to recreational customers.
“Right now, dispensaries
would be the only place to pur-
chase recreational marijuana le-
gally,” Boone said. He said that
he expects prices of the drug to
increase in the short term due to
a high initial demand but added
that many hope the annual har-
vest of marijuana this fall will
produce a glut of weed that can
supply the new recreational
market.
“Some people are anticipat-
ing a shortage and growing
more already than they normal-
ly would,” he said, adding that
he’s been encouraging medical
marijuana users to stock up in
advance of the Oct. 1 start of
recreational sales. Boone said
he’s already fi elded questions
from “tourists” from other states
hoping to purchase legal mari-
juana here.
“We’ve had to disappoint
people from Indiana and other
states because we couldn’t sell
to them yet, so I’m sure we will
be getting some more tourism
from this,” he said.
All in all, Boone said recre-
ational sales should be great for
business.
“We’re widening our custom-
er base to include everyone over
the age of 21,” he said. “It’s hard
to fi gure a way that that could
hurt.”
Boone said he suspects that
four dispensaries may be more
than the local market can bear,
but the “only way to fi gure that
out will be time.” He added that
a ban on recreational sales re-
cently put in place in Creswell
can only help the Cottage Grove
market.
Under the draft rules, dispen-
saries hoping to sell recreational
marijuana must notify the Or-
egon Health Authority. Other
rules for dispensaries hoping to
market to recreational custom-
ers include:
Dispensaries must post a sign
notifying customers that they
cater to both recreational and
medical customers;
They must distribute a state-
issued information card about
marijuana;
Dispensaries must track the
age of recreational purchasers
but not their names.

The Professor and
the Poltalloch
The massive British barque
Poltalloch was part of the Brit-
ish grain fl eet and a regular
visitor to the ports of Oregon
and Washington. One foggy
November day in 1900, she was
With three other dispensaries
already operating in town, Co-
hen said she’s still not worried
about the Medication Station
distinguishing itself.
“Each (dispensary) is an indi-
vidual,” she said. “We’re differ-
ent than Apothecaria and Man-
dy’s; each has its own niche, and
ours is holistic knowledge and a
whole-body experience.”
The Medication Station is
planning an offi cial grand open-
ing in the near future. Its hours
are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on week-
days and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on
weekends. It can be reached by
phone at 541-946-7294.
making her way toward Puget
Sound past the mouth of the Co-
lumbia when she wandered off
course. The good news was that
she missed Peacock Spit; the
bad news was that she went hard
aground, at high tide, just north
of the Columbia by the entrance
to Shoalwater Bay.
The receding tide left the
Poltalloch towering high out of
the surf. As with the Sidi, the
crew was able to pitch a Jacob’s
Ladder over the side and walk
ashore. And as with the Sidi,
salvage operators got busy right
away trying to fi gure out how to
get the ship off the beach and
back into service.
They eventually were suc-
cessful in this. But during the
month or two during which the
Poltalloch was stuck there, she
nearly lured at least one other
ship onto the reef beside her,
like a decoy duck.
It happened the following Feb-
ruary, when a German bark, the
Professor Koch, was making her
way toward the bar for a cross-
ing. The ship, as the story goes,
was making for the bar when
the skipper spotted a square-rig-
ger ahead, far inland, looking
as if her helmsman knew where
he was going. They must be
crossing the bar, the helmsman
thought. So he steered straight
in after her.
Luckily, the steamer Fulton
was on hand, and got to the
German vessel in time to warn
her skipper that he was follow-
ing a stranded ship and headed
straight for the beach. The Pro-
fessor Koch turned and sailed
back southward, her skipper no
doubt a little redder of face than
before.

some time, and in early May
of this year, an advisory com-
mittee recommended the pursuit
of a 25-year, $29.8 million bond
to replace Harrison and poten-
tially address other needs that
included deferred maintenance,
safety and security upgrades,
the renovation of the Warren H.
Daugherty Aquatic Center and
fi nishing of athletic fi elds.
Bridgens said that proposals
for designs for a potential new
Harrison building have been
received from six of the sev-
en architect fi rms the District
sought plans from. A committee
is currently being organized to
discuss the campaign to get the
bond approved, Bridgens said.
Last week, Cottage Grove
City Manager Richard Meyers
noted that, despite needs the
City has in regard to its aging
infrastructure, the City has not
been planning to approach vot-
ers to pass a bond.
“The City certainly has things
that need funding,” Meyers said,
“but now that the fi re depart-
ment and the school district are
pursuing theirs, we’ll probably
pursue other methods to fund
those needs.”
Meyers said examples of
those methods could include the
establishment of an urban re-
newal district or a fee on certain
transactions within the city to
fund items like aging roads and
sewer pipes.
“How do you fi ll the gap?” he
said. “There might have to be a
new rule with residential streets
such as Bryant Avenue where
property owners are assessed
for a portion of the repairs.
There are lots of questions that
need answered, and we haven’t
gotten there yet.”
