Milwaukie snowplow crews are heading out

Dec. 29, 2009, 4:33 p.m. — Milwaukie Public Works Department says crews are heading out to plow the streets.  In Ardenwald, S.E. 32nd Ave., S.E. Johnson Creek Blvd., and S.E. 42nd Ave. are snowplow routes.  If you have a car parked on the streets designated a snowplow route, you may want to move it off the street to prevent damages from the snow plowing.  Residential side streets are not plowed. See Snowplow Routes (Milwaukie).

Christmas Families gifts delivered despite downpour

The Neighborhood Association delivered the presents donated by local residents and businesses  to  two anonymous Ardenwald-Johnson Creek NDA Christmas Adopt-a-Family families over the weekend.

Lisa Gunion-Rinker said that both families “were so touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity that they started crying.”

Matt Rinker, Jeff Davis and Chris Davis helped deliver the presents, including a queen-sized mattress and box spring, in the pouring rain.

Last year the Neighborhood Association had to deliver the presents in a foot and a half of snow.
