Clothing found along highway

Three trash bags of loose clothing were found along Hwy. 82 between Enterprise and Lostine Monday night. They have been stored by the Oregon State Police, but will be disposed of if they are not claimed.

Burglary attempt nets nothing

A would-be burglar got into M. Crow & Co. of Lostine about 6 p.m. Sunday night, but was apparently scared away by an alarm before anything was stolen or any damage done. The Wallowa County sheriff's department is looking into the incident.

Thank you

I would like to say thank you to Dr. Grandy, the nursing staff, and the EMT's for their wonderful care I was given during my recent hospital stay. Thank you to the people who sent flowers, cards, prayers, called or stopped to say hi, I appreciated it very much. And to my wonderful family, my love and appreciation always. Thank you again and God Bless You All!
