Projects to revamp parking, trailheads in Mazama may begin later this year

A series of recent developments has brought a plan – in the works for almost a decade – to reconfigure trailhead parking and provide more accommodations for businesses, residents and tourists in the Mazama core closer to reality.

By Bob Spiwak I finally had my turn slipping on the ice, landing simultaneously on my butt and head. My first thought was about the National Football League and the concussion protocols now in use. The last thing I need is more adverse goings-on in the brain, because it is getting less useable as I...

By Bob Spiwak It is a rainy, foggy, gloomy Monday morning. What were infrequent spells of rain have become a steady flow. The parking area here is becoming puddle-ized, and here and there where it has been plowed bare earth is beginning to show. Can this be the end of winter? I don’t think so — more...

By Bob Spiwak It was nice to see Lisa Picklesimer back at the counter of the Mazama Store this week. She has been working overtime on her wonderful chocolate creation business non-stop since November. Three years ago at the store, a gingerbread house was made for the Christmas decorations. It was a model of the...

By Bob Spiwak It’s a sunny Monday and despite weather forecasts to the contrary, one gets the feeling we are over the hump. If you refer to the Off the Wall column on this page, there is a bit of chilling history that may well put that feeling to the lie. For now we can...

By Bob Spiwak The absence of this column last week was noted by several people, and I apologize to those who suffer through it regularly. It was a time of snow plowing, shoveling, bad back and little travel. Even the regular Harts Pass blurb had to be forestalled. To that end we can report that...

By Bob Spiwak It is a grim and cloudy day this Monday. We were getting spoiled over the past week and temperatures rose into the low 40s at some points. Roofs with ice and snow, some of these winter coats dating back to Thanksgiving, came sliding down at times in small hunks. This past weekend...

Mazama: Jan. 6, 2016

By Bob Spiwak It’s about 8 a.m. Monday. The snow is still falling — listless powder. It began about 12 hours ago with an angry barrage of huge fluttery flakes and unless it quit for a while during sleepy time, the fall has not let up and about 4 inches or so have accumulated. Temperature is at...

By Bob Spiwak The new year is just about here. We spent Sunday morning as usual watching “Sunday Morning” on CBS. Yearly, host Charles Osgood has a section for the final show of the year titled “Hail and Farewell,” commentary about famous people who died during the past year. Some were familiar to Ms. Gloria...

By Bob Spiwak Wow! Zowie! It looks like we might have a white Christmas this year. This is mentioned because amidst the gab of the several weather reports we see on the tube, the snow factor enters into every conversation (between commercials for removing fat, hiring a lawyer or buying a skillet) that occurs as...
