The Gazette-Times, Heppner, Oregon, Thursday, July 26, 1979 FIVE
With Justine Wrathr rford
You've probably noted the high temperatures in most of
Morrow. Our area certainly does have definite seasonal
highs and lows. In some ways in recent years more has-been
done about the weather than simply talking about it.
Jane Rawlins says she was in Walla Walla during its 106
temperature day and found that only when she left the
air-conditioned automobile could she begin to realize how hot
it really was.
Eleanor Gonty and I drove to my daughter's home
between Cheney and Spokane last Friday in a non-aircondi-tioned
car and realized every minute how hot it was (not
quite 106 degrees) As we observed several men in dusty fields
on tractors I felt concern for the non-cab vehicles and
wondered if the cab jobs were aircooled and jf their operators
were copier than we were.
Last Saturday we spent several hours walking about in
Spokane's spectacular, downtown Sky walk Shopping Area.
That city has certainly done plenty about the weather. The
street-spanning, carpeted, air-conditioned in summer and
heated in winter, walkways which connect all of the major
stores at their second-floor levels give shoppers many miles
of climate control.
We had a most knowledgeable guide for our tour. My
daughter Ann's husband Ray Chenhall, an architect who
worked with other architects in designing and supervising
the creation of the latest sectors of the Skywalk Project, led
us around and told of some of the problems and solutions that
its architects and builders faced.
During the middle of last week a large group (more than
60) senior citizens found Cutsforth Park much cooler than
most of their homes. Local seniors were joined by county
residents from northernly points and by visitors from several
. Contingent counties. Marion Hayden drove the county senior
bus. Two other senior citizen busses also brought passengers
to the park. Cooks Eleanor Gonty and Marilyn Bergstrom
and Mealsite Director Pat Brindle provided a large, delicious
noon meal for all.
For over a year, youthful Brad Christensen of the Bank
of Eastern Oregon has been living at the corner of Cannon
andGilmore streets and has been such a pleasant and helpful
Brad left Heppner on Sunday for larger career
opportunities in Portland where he is beginning employment
as business manager for Associate Commercial Corporation
a subsidiary of Gulf and Western Industries. Brad has been
very active in the Lions Club here, giving much time and
efforts to the clubs projects. He says he has enjoyed living
and working in this community and knows he will miss it.
Year around, there is an exciting, educational, public
exhibit of outstanding historic articles in the County Museum
which shares the attractive, modern, North Main Street,
park surrounded building which was given to the community
by Amanda Duvall and has been enlarged several times by
its donor.
A quick glance at the visitors' register shows that in July
more than 90 out-of-town visitors signed in there. Three from
Virginia, several from Arizona and from Alaska, others were
from Florida and Colorado and many from points in
California, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. Comments
following their names repeat the word "interesting" and
state "what a fine museum for any population area," "a
really great collection", "most educational and enjoyable."
After many visits to the museum during my years here, I
am always delighted to view its new additions and improved
arrangements. Last week I got a first look at the 33 framed
sets of local Indian arrowheads that are a recent contribution
from Katherine Bisbee, Waldport, daughter of county
pioneer Lou Bisbee. Katherine has contributed many
personal and family treasures to the museum and library
Our county is blessed with an active Historical Society
that supports and strengthens the museum curator and its
administrative board. As often is the case, the Morrow
County Museum is appreciated more by traveling visitors
than by its home folks. Most outside viewers are positive that
it is the "best museum in all of Eastern Oregon."
Hopefully, if the hot weather continues, more persons of
all ages will be enjoying the air-conditioned pleasures to be
found as they visit the library and museum here. Only the
little nearby schoolhouse annex is, as always, without the
electrical magic of air cooling.
The Heppner Library is open from one until five p.m. on
Mondays and Wednesdays, from 7:30 until 9:30 on Thursday
evenings and from two until four p.m. Saturdays. Museum
hours are from noon until five p.m. om Mondays and
