10 Years Ago: The Bite brought a bevy of fun posted on 05/01/2020

A Century of Brightwood

Brightwood commemorated 100 years of postal history on May 6, 2010 by celebrating at the original Brightwood Post Office (now Mountain Retreats), and also by ushering in a new postmaster, Aaron Campbell, the 13th postmaster of Brightwood. A special postmark honoring Brightwood’s centennial was created by Brightwood artist Sue Allen.

Bite of Mt. Hood

The premier Bite of Mt. Hood, a fundraising event benefitting the Mt. Hood Area Chamber of Commerce and the Hoodland Senior Center, took place on May 1 at Mt. Hood Village in Welches. For those who have sampled the delights of the Bite over the past several years, memories will linger on for the delicious food and scrumptious desserts provided by local restaurants, a silent and live auction, and live music. For the premier event, French troubadour Eric John Kaiser provided a taste of Paris with traditional French tunes.

Zac Miller – Martial Artist

Zac Miller proved to be undefeated in the art of amateur cage fighting in May of 2010, having prevailed in his first three bouts for the Team Quest Fight Club. Miller grew up on the Mountain, from pre-school through Welches schools to graduating from Sandy High. A large mountain contingent would accompany Miller to his fights to cheer him on, including his mom, Connie Miller. “She’s my No. 1 fan,” Miller said. “Besides Nick (older brother), she’s the loudest one in the crowd.”

Rhody Angler top fly-caster

Mia Sheppard of Rhododendron excelled in the Spey-O-Rama Casting Festival in San Francisco, and snagged first place in the Spey cast event. It was fierce competition, with three former champions pitted against the Mountain angler. The event featured the three ways to cast a fly line: the roll cast, the overhead cast and the Spey cast. The latter was developed in Scotland and is the most often used with two-handed fly rods. Be careful if you try out fly fishing, you could get hooked.

Johnson RV opened

Johnson RV officially opened for business with a ribbon cutting at their Sandy location. Johnson RV is one of Oregon’s largest new and used RV dealerships, and for the opening in April, 2010, the guests enjoyed barbeque in a celebration that included prizes, free gifts and sales.

Native Plants

The third in the series of native plants to the mountain featured in the Mountain Times featured the enormous Douglas fir, Western red-cedar and red alder. These are our quiet sentinels, standing tall and majestic, shading wider sections of our rivers to maintain the cool temperatures that salmon need to survive. The seeds of the firs and cedars attract flocks of birds such as grosbeaks, nuthatches and siskins in the autumn, and birds and flying squirrels nest in the cavities of mature trees while the deeply fluted bark of the old firs provides habitat for hundreds of creatures. Given their great size and longevity, it is best to plant these trees in places where they will have room to grow to their full potential.
