Living the Small Town American Dream Mill City and Detroit explode in a celebration of Freedom!

From watching fireworks while Detroit Lake gently laps at the shore to an all out party at Kimmel Park - with live music and an amazing pyrotechnic display, nothing beats celebrating Independence Day in the North Santiam Canyon. Volunteers from Stayton to Idanha made sure this year would be one to remember! A special thanks to the Mill City Fourth of July Committee, Mill City Fire Department, and Detroit Lake Recreation and Business Association. Here’s a glimpse at this past weekend’s festivities! Pictured clockwise from right: Members of the Santiam Cowgirls Drill Team, local legend Arey Podrabsky sporting a blue ribbon, Mill City Historical Society’s Official Cheerleading Squad, volunteers at the Mill City Fire Dept got more than they signed up for - as the offical buxom babes of the parade! Lookin’ fine!

Can’t get enough photos of all the great local events? Have you checked out yet? We took hundreds of photos this weekend, many more than we can possibly print. Professional and amateur photographers from up and down the Santiam Canyon contribute weekly - and now these photos are available online for our readers! Missed the parade in Mill City? See the video online too! We’re also on Facebook .

As you celebrate - we do too! You may have noticed we distributed on Thursday this week, rather than our typical Wednesday. In order to properly honor this important national holiday - and to spend time with friends, family, and community - we took Monday off too! (Our camera crews kept on clicking however...) Thank you for your understanding and patronage! We remain steadfastly dedicated to serving our canyon communities...Karen, Tim and Michelle

Elkhorn Fire Hall gets a facelift

The 26 year old fire station got a new coat of paint this weekend as part of ongoing maintenance from the Stayton Fire District. “We want to make sure that it stays in good shape,” said assistant fire chief Jay Alley. The station serves the North Fork area up to Shady Cove Campground, with seven North Fork resident volunteers, one rescue vehicle and one water tender. They average 15 service calls a year most in the summer when the population doubles or even triples due to visitors.

Did you guess who’s car it was?

Last week, readers enjoyed a little local history about escapades in a 1956 candy apple red MGA in the submission My First Car. Did you guess who wrote it? That’s right, it was Dr. Lawrence Barnes, a ten year canyon resident and practitioner at Santiam Medical Clinic in Mill City. He’s pictured below with the fabulous machine that led to so many adventures....

The river dropped into excellent condition this week, and very few people took advantage of the ideal conditions with scenic trips or fishing on the North Santiam. The few people out there on the water were rewarded with both a first class outdoor experience and also with solitude. That’s unusual this time of year, and we are not complaining. Many different birds are flying around, and kingfishers are noteworthy this month. We had an osprey dive close to the boat and catch a small trout. Dippers are dipping a lot. Eagles occasionally make low elevation fly-overs. Turkey buzzards have a big wing span and are soaring over meadows. They will move to the river banks after salmon spawn. Steelhead are laying in tail-outs and alongside ledges in some places in the middle river sections. There are large numbers of fish upstream from Packsaddle Park, and large numbers around Fishermen’s Bend and North Santiam State Park. Many of my trips the last two weeks have been scenic raft trips, and many of the trips scheduled for the next several weeks are driftboat fishing trips. Now that the river levels have dropped to normal, fishing success is probable. I have new rods, reels, and tackle to break in, and am enthusiastic about the chances of catching both steelhead and salmon. Steelheaders Salem Chapter board meets on July 6 in Salem at Wholesale Sports at 6:30. Upcoming river activities will be discussed. Interested visitors are welcome.
