An open house Monday marked start of two-men crew In West Valley, fulfilling a promise made by Sheriff Lee Vesquez. erl pens erl an ion Yamhill County Sheriff Lee Vas- quez held an open house Monday to mark the opening of the Sheridan sub-station, located in the former fire hall on North Bridge Street. Vasquez said he pushed for the fa- cility to fulfill a promise he made while running for office last year. The sub-station will be manned by two deputies, Paul D. Leinenbach, 45, and Steven D. Warden, 27. Sgt. Paul May will serve as station commander, a position he also holds for the sheriff's office in Dayton. At Monday's open house May said the sub-station is designed to pro- vide better sheriff's patrols for the Sheridan bridge clears inspection The Sheridan bridge should be good for another 20 to 30 years, ac- cording to Yamhill County Commis- sioner Dave Bishop who reported last week on a county inspection of the span that links north and south sides of town across the Yamhill River. Bishop said the inspection report noted that the wooden structure sup- porting the Masonic building adja- cent to the bridge is beginning to de- teriorate. The building is structurally independent from the bridge, how- ever. A city-cleanup campaign focused on the bridge last month when work crews spent two weekends hosing debris from the 50-year-old struc- ture. But estimates that it would cost up to $300,000 to repaint the bridge have stalled further efforts to im- prove the structure which is under the county's control even though it was built during the Depression as pasrt of the federal works project.

Willamina school board to meet The Willamina school board will meet Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Ronde Elementary School. No agenda for the meeting was available before press time. Volunteers nee( The oldest Phil Sheridan Days par- ade is still a celebration of the young- est West Valley citizens: the Chil- dren's Parade at 6 p.m. Friday, June 16. A few things have changed with the passage of 54 years. Oh, the par- ade still starts from the City Park, but it no longer ends with the chil- dren stopping at the local creamery for an ice cream cone. Instead, the parade ends at the high school with volunteers passing out cold drinks, cookies and "goody bags" to the kids. Archway Cookies is supplying the treats and 7-Up is paying for half the cold drinks. Phil Sheridan Days is "picking up the Turnout low for II of board Ballots were sent out by Yamhill and Polk counties on Thursday for the mail-in Grand Ronde Sewer Dis- trict election to recall two of its board members. In Polk County, 115 ballots were mailed and 14 were returned as of Tuesday morning, according to County Clerk Linda Dawson, who is also in charge of the election. In Yamhill County, 34 ballots were sent out and only one was reported mailed back as of Tuesday morning. The purpose of the election is to recall district chairman Edward A. Smith and board member Dean Mer- cier on the grounds that they were verbally abusive to members of the public at district meetings and that Mercier is a convicted felon and not a legal resident of the district. A petition demanding the recall which was signed by 41 residents was questioned when Dawson re- ceived six letters claiming the face sheet was not attached to the petition when it was signed. Only 17 signa- tures were necessary to set the elec- tion into motion. Some of the peti- tion signers have also claimed they were lied to when signing the peti- tion to hold an election. The Oregon Secretary of State's office is current- ly looking into those allegations. Park funday chairman needed Phil Sheridan Days is nearing and all but one event is on line. "We are in need of someone to chair the Sunday Fun-Day in the Park," said Bob Jordan. "Last year was the first try for this and it was real successful but unless we can get someone to run this it will not be included in this year's festivities," he added. "We really don't want to drop Sunday Fun-Day but without help we just will not be able to do it," he concluded.

Businesses have donated the sur- prises in the bags (provided by Cope- land's). For instance, there's a pass to Western Deer Park, a coupon for a Mr. Misty from the Sheridan Dairy Queen, coupons for Funtastic Carni- val rides, and local merchants have provided a variety of candies and balloons for the bags. Crack-O, the West Valley Clown, is Grand Marshal of the Children's Parade. He'll be joined by other local celebrities, such as the Junior Court riding on the PGE float, the mini-car from Davison's Auto Supply and the man-sized parrot from Skipper's in McMinnville.

The only new item in the budget that would affect the West Valley is a request to finance a forestry patrol deputy (to be attached to the sher- iff's office). Propes said that negotia- tions are underway with the timber industry to make funding the posi- tion a cooperative venture. "Having a roaming forestry patrol deputy would be a big help," Propes said. "If he were needed for an emergency, he could get down in the valley in a hurry." Propes said the forestry patrol would be "all over the mountains," not just in the West Valley. The per- son might be up around Pedee or up Gold Creek out of Willamina. The person's main job would be to catch timber thieves and keep an eye on the safety of people who either work or are visiting the forests. "There really aren't any major changes in the budget from last year," Propes said. "But our road budget is figured at $2,254,669, down by about 13 percent from last year." The only West Valley road project in the budget is blade-patching on AR Ford Road in Grand Rondo. "We're working on all the gravel roads this year," Propes said. "Some of the work, like Fire Hall Road, is already done." ditions for dance troupe Auditions have been set for a new dance company at Gallery Players of Oregon in McMinnville.
