The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Jan. 1 Oregon Water Supply Report has been released, and, so far, the news is good for Harney County.

A summary of water supply conditions for the Harney Basin is as follows:

Road department working on Lane 9

Posted on January 14th in News

In connection with road work being done along the Crane-Buchanan road, Harney County Judge Steve Grasty released the following:

The Harney County Road Department is working on “Lane 9” at its connection to the Crane-Buchanan road. Lane 9 is actually the eastern most end of Rye Grass Lane right-of-way, which goes completely across the valley east of Burns. The county’s objective is to eventually open this entire road to an all-weather status. The triangle between Crane, Buchanan and Burns is limited by access issues like sheer distance of private land to improved roads, and by those associated with the old “Meadowland development” from the 1960s. The county believes that opening this entire road will allow many acres of ground to be developed for agricultural and other purposes. Today we have few opportunities to improve our local economy, and opening access to private land like this is one opportunity that we can work toward today. As this work progresses, it may also provide access for land owners on the meadowland roads that exist in that area today.

The road department expects to work at this location for the next few weeks. This work will continue off and on over time; understanding that improving it to the county standard for a gravel road will likely take a number of years as funding and resources allow. If you have questions, please call any member of the county court or the road supervisor.

Shopping can sometimes be a challenge, whether it involves driving long distances or surfing the web for hours on end. That’s one reason a group of four enterprising and artistic local women decided to team up and combine their time and talents to open a new store, One Stop Shop, in downtown Burns.

The store will be operated by Andi Harmon, Judy Presley, Michelle Severe, and Linda Whiting. The group’s goal is to create an establishment where a variety of distinct, but complementary products and services are offered, and to be able to be accessible to the public on a more regular basis than each of them individually are currently able to do. Each one of the four has their own specialty offering.

Harmon will provide:

• Photography. Outdoor sessions will be offered, as well as workshops for those wanting to learn the skill.

• Custom printing services. This will include standard posters and flyers, as well as archival-quality photo printing, and even special adhesive wallpaper prints, featuring Harmon’s photography or customized orders.

• Computer services. Repairs, one-on-one training, consultation (i.e., for business computer operations), and web design.

Presley will offer custom framing services (including conservation framing), as well as a variety of standard-sized, ready-made frames in the store. A large variety of frame samples and mat colors and styles will be on hand at the shop. Presley has operated her own business, Judy’s Custom Framing, for 15 years, and has 20 years of experience in the craft. She was originally trained by Myrna Tuning, who provided framing service at a longtime business in Burns.

Severe is a self-described western wildlife multimedia artist. Her mediums include oils, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, glass etching, wood burning and scrimshaw. Scrimshaw, in this case, involves carving images directly into the smooth bone finish of an antler. Severe has worked for many years with Great Basin Art in Prairie City, doing scrimshaw on the handles of obsidian knives. In addition, Severe does custom artwork on handmade juniper furniture, with wood-burned and painted scenes, as well as etched mirrors and gun cabinets.

She also does the majority of the scrimshaw work for Silver Stag’s steel hunting knives.

Severe’s prints and other pieces will be available at the new store, and she also takes custom orders. Her work can be viewed at her website, www.michellesevere.com, and on her Facebook page.

Whiting is another local artist contributing to the shop. Like Severe, she paints, focusing strongly on nature themes, including birds and outdoor scenes. She also does bead embroidery and bead weaving with “seed beads,” which are just a couple of millimeters in size. Whiting has her own space, Designs by Linda Gallery, about two miles outside Burns, but hopes this shop will make it easier for customers to find her art, since the gallery is out of town and not always open. Her prints and pieces will be available at the shop, and she also takes custom orders.

The shop will also eventually feature traditional western gear made by local craftspeople, and possibly art supplies.

•••

One Stop Shop will hold its grand opening Saturday, Jan.17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Refreshments and homemade goodies will be provided, and drawings will be held every hour for gift certificates and other prizes.

General hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. It is located at 29 E. Washington Street in Burns. The phone number is 541-589-4249.


Mustangs down Antelopes 40-36

After losing to Jordan Valley 68-51 on Friday, Jan. 9, the Crane boys basketball team bounced back the following day with a 40-36 win over Adrian, evening their league record at 1-1.

Wyatt Starbuck and Joe Valentine each scored 12 points to lead the Mustangs to the win over Adrian.

Crane trailed 15-9 at the end of the first quarter, and 17-10 early in the second quarter, but the Mustangs’ offense began to click, and they went on an 8-0 run to take the lead. Adrian made three free throws in the closing minutes of the half  to lead 20-18 at halftime.

The Mustangs regained the lead on a three-point play by Starbuck at the start of the second half, and went on to lead 31-28 headed into the fourth period.

After the Antelopes outscored Crane 6-2 in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter for a 34-33 lead, the Mustangs’ William Clark buried a 3-pointer and Starbuck added a basket to put Crane ahead by four.

The Antelopes scored to cut the lead to two, and began to foul to get the ball back. Crane missed the first free throw on three consecutive one-and-one opportunities, but the Antelopes couldn’t get any shots to fall on their end of the court.

The Mustangs beat the full-court press in the final seconds, and Matt Witzel put in an easy basket for Crane, giving them the four-point victory.

Witzel finished with six points, Colton Witzel had four, and Travis Landon and Clark three each.

•••

The game against Jordan Valley was a tale of two quarters that knocked out Crane, despite their efforts to get back into the game.

Beset by turnovers, Crane was down 22-5 after the first period of play.  Crane finally capitalized on scoring opportunities in the second quarter, and fought back to within 10 before the half, 38-28.

Fouls hampered Crane’s play, as early in the third quarter, three starters were on the bench with four fouls each, and one was playing with three. Jordan Valley took advantage of the match-up and grabbed a 61-34 lead going into the final quarter and finished with the 68-51 win.

The Mustangs are home for their next two High Desert League contests. They host Harper/Huntington on Friday, Jan. 16, and Dayville/Monument on Saturday, Jan. 17.
