The Longest Day

Every year on the summer solstice, the Alzheimer’s association holds a nationwide fundraiser known as “the longest day” to raise funds and awareness for those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan sat down with a local woman with a personal connection to the disease and a caregiver whose job working with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients turned into a second family.

Central Oregon Welcomes Two New Fire Stations

There are two new fire stations under construction in Central Oregon right now. Station 302 in Tumalo is being replaced with a larger, updated facility right next door to the current station. Bend is welcoming a new addition located on Northeast 15th Street, next door to the Bend Police Headquarters. Central Oregon Daily’s Dalton Roth spoke with officals on the project and has more.

Lessons Learned

With conditions being almost perfect for a wildfire to start, we’re reminded of fires like the one that swept through Northern California and devastated the town of Paradise. Several local agencies spoke with county commissioners this afternoon about how to help prevent what happened in Paradise from affecting Central Oregon. Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan was at the meeting and tells us what lessons were discussed.
