12 The Sun, Wednesday, September 28, 1994 In Willamina By Travis Moore Staff Writer, The Sun Nearly 150 Willamina residents attended a town meeting last Thurs- day at the volunteer fire department hall to discuss how to help control juvenile problems in the commun- ity. Alan Young from the Yamhill County juvenile department and Sgt. Roger Conley of the Yamhill County sheriff's department were on hand to give their insights. Young told the crowd that juvenile workers often aren't able to spend a proper amount of time with each juvenile they see. He said juvenile officers often have more than 100 cases at one time. Conley gave the crowd an idea of the rising number of juvenile crimes and the type of crimes police are seeing. Juvenile violent crime is one of the areas rising the fastest, he said. Conley said several ideas were discussed at the meeting. "One of the ideas was to train community members on what to look for so they can help work with us," he said. "They also talked about cellular phone patrols being extra eyes and ears for the commun- ity." Conley said members of the com- munity decided to have future meet- ings for planning sessions with interested community members and officers from the juvenile depart- ment. "They want to identify specific problems," he said. "Then they want to come up with solutions for those problems. They were also talking about Neighborhood Watches." Conley said he was encouraged by the meeting. "It was a very positive meeting," he said. "It was good to see that much positive energy in the com- munity. Some Sheridan residents were there and said they would organize a meeting like this in their town." The Willamina meeting followed a crackdown by the sheriff's depart- ment on curfew violations in both towns. 30-unit housing project OKd Jim Anderson's 30-unit subdivi- sion on the north side of Sheridan got a green light Monday night when the city council rejected an appeal from nearby homeowners who said the development might increase drainage problems in their neighborhood. The council upheld a staff report to approve the housing project and overturned the city planning cam- mission's request to give the com- mission final say over drainage and street plans. The council agreed the public works director and city engi- neer should keep that authority. Although residents of Elm Street apparently have lost their battle over the Anderson subdivision, their action has prompted the city council to appoint a citizen's task force to look into drainage problems With the onset of dry easterly winds, the Yamhill County Fire Defense Board reminds county resi- dents that all debris and fourth class agricultural burning is still banned. Chief John Fowler, spokesman for the Fire Defense Board, advises that the ban will last through the end of fire season. "When we start to get a little moisture in the fall, people begin to relax and think it's safe to burn," says Fowler, "but it only takes a few days of drying for fire danger to return to the level it was before the rain." Often times burn piles can come back to life days or weeks later during hot, windy conditions, caus- ing a wildfire. These types of fires often threaten nearby homes in rural areas. Rural fire protection districts and the Oregon Department of For- estry control a significant number of these fires every year. During late September and Octo- ber, dry, easterly winds typically develop in western Oregon as a result of fall weather patterns. With the recent hot and windy weather, forest, brush and grass areas are primed for intense burning. "Fall is really the most dangerous part of the fire season in northwest Oregon," says Jim Young, protec- tion unit forester with the Oregon Department of Forestry in Forest Grove. Forest, brush and grass areas become progressively drier during the summer and when strong, east winds develop, it makes fire condi- v sx Willamina High School's 1994 cheerleaders are ready for this Friday night's homecoming Newport.
