heart, spending his time
traveling, gardening, and
being an active member of
the LDS Church. Though
Hershey had no children,
he considered Prudence
Jayne (PJ) Nicklaus to be
his adopted daughter.
In his own words, Her-
shey, “lived by the Golden
Rule most of his life. He
loved most everybody he
ever met and, in return, got
their love back. If he had to
do it all over, he wouldn’t
change a thing. He loved
each of you while he was
here and he’ll love Bethine
for all eternity.”
Hershey is survived
by his wife, Bethine (Fet-
ters) Siron, his brother Hart
Siron, PJ Nicklaus, and her
young daughter, Cindy. He

Don E. Anderson
Don E. Anderson, 85,
of Arlington, passed away
Jan. 1, 2018 surrounded by
family in Heppner. A grave-
side service will be held on
Monday, Jan. 8 at 11 a.m. at
the Arlington Cemetery in
Arlington, OR. A reception
will follow at the Gronquist
Building in Arlington.
He was born May 30,
1932, the only son of Edgar
and Margaret McKinney
Anderson. He grew up
on the family ranch in the
Blalock Canyon area near
Arlington that was home-
steaded in 1888. He at-
tended school in Arlington,
graduating from Arlington
High School in 1950. Don
served in the United States
Army from 1953-1955,
stationed in Fort Hood, TX.
He stayed in contact with
many of his Army buddies
throughout his life.
Besides the wheat and
cattle ranch, Don’s only real
hobby in his younger years
was the occasional week-
end rodeo. That hobby led
him to the Morrow County
Fair and Rodeo where he
met rodeo queen, Patricia
Ann Wright. They were
married Nov. 30, 1957. Don
and Patricia combined their
family ranches which are
still in operation today.
Don enjoyed good
horses and cattle. He was
recognized as the lifetime
commercial cattleman hon-
oree at the Western Nugget
Nation Hereford Show in
2005 by the Western States
Hereford Association. In
1990 and 1991 he was se-
lected by the American Her-
eford Association to judge
Hereford carloads at the
National Western Livestock
Show in Denver, CO. Don
also enjoyed watching high
school and college sporting
events, traveling to hereford
bull sales and visiting with

Changes to Oregon’s bottle deposit and
redemption system begin Jan. 1
Starting January 1,
2018, most beverages in
sealed plastic, aluminum,
and glass containers be-
tween four ounces and 1.5
liters will be charged a
10-cent deposit and the
containers will be eligible
for redemption. This means
that many new beverages,
like ciders, sports drinks,
coffees, and teas will be
part of Oregon’s innovative
bottle bill.
“The expansion of the
bottle bill that starts on
Jan. 1 is an important step
toward bringing the suc-
cess of the bottle bill in line
with the kinds of products
that are out there today,
keeping more litter out of
Oregon’s beautiful natural
areas, and making sure that
those containers are getting
recycled,” said Jules Bailey,
Chief Stewardship Officer
of the Oregon Beverage
Recycling Cooperative.
The rule of thumb for
deciding if the container is
covered by the change is
generally, if you can pour
it and drink it, it’s covered
unless it’s one of the specifi-
cally excluded beverages
(distilled spirits, wine, milk,
infant formula, and meal
replacement beverages).
As many new contain-
ers come in to the bottle
deposit and redemption
Morrow County Road Dept. would like to
remind all motorists there will be NO winter
maintenance on Coalmine hill (USFS Route 53)
For the rest of the County winter maintenance practices
include applying deicing agent, plowing and sanding. The
combination of practices used at each site may
vary to accommodate the different climate,
traffic and storm conditions encountered.
Please use extreme caution and common
sense. They will do their best and would
appreciate your patience.
Driving in the snow and ice requires
a certain set of driving skills that some
residents rarely get to use.
♦ Check road conditions on
your route before you go at
TripCheck or by dialing 511.
Plan your trip accordingly.
♦ Allow extra time to get
where you’re going. Travel is
going to be slow.
♦ Allow extra stopping dis-
tance. There is less traction
on slick, snowy roads.
♦ Brake gently to avoid skid-
ding or sliding. If the wheels
lock up, ease off the brakes.
♦ Carry chains and know
how to use them.
♦ Make sure your vehicle is
in top operating conditions,
with clean headlights, good
brakes, working windshield
wipers and good tires.
♦ Slow down when ap-
proaching off-ramps, bridges
and shady spots where the
snow often lingers longer.
♦ Turn on your headlights to
increase your visibility.
♦ Be prepared for delays.
Make sure you have water,
blankets, a full tank of gas…
and plenty of patience!
♦ If you feel tired or if road
conditions get rough, don’t
be afraid to stop for the night.
