It is there for the whole family to read. And they do! It is there to be read at the time and under the circumstances when the reader asks to be informed. The housewife can tear out the ads and take them shopping with her. And she does!'

Don't miss the local news

Photo Credit: ARCHIVE PHOTO - In this 1984 photo Estacada Mayor John Rowley and City Manager Duane Robinson admire a welcome sign that had been recently restored by the Timber Lake Job Corps. The two-sided sign came from Clackamas and had been repainted three times, but to city employee Ed Larson's knowledge had never been used anywhere as a sign. The sign was in safekeeping of the city. Plans were made to put it up on city property near the Estacada Industrial Park off Highway 224 as soon as the site was prepared and city crews were available for the job.
