Farm Bureau opposes sale of Limmeroth Ranch

When the Wasco County Board of Commissioners signed a letter supporting the sale of the Limmeroth Ranch in the Deschutes River corridor to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife in October, 2013, there was zero opposition. Well, there is now. Leading the group of unhappy nearby landowners at the June 3 meeting was Dean McAllister, who is also the vice president of the Wasco County Farm Bureau. “The government already owns 54 percent of Oregon,” McAllister said. “Why do they need another 10,000 acres? When is it enough for the state?” The purchase of the Limmeroth Ranch would add to the Lower Deschutes Wildlife Area, which was established in 1983 when the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation donated 2,758 acres. In 1986, the foundation gave another 5,158 acres to the department.

House, brush fire burn Friday in TD

A house fire in The Dalles Friday morning was soon followed by a brush fire in the afternoon. Bryan Hanson got home just in time Friday morning or else the fire that did most of its damage in the laundry room could have been much worse. After running errands downtown, Hanson said he heard the smoke alarm before he even pulled into his house on 2110 East 14th Street in The Dalles.
