The Enterprise investigated why Malheur County had to put $2 million more into the Nyssa rail shipping project.
We relied on public records to establish a project that leaders say is 75 percent done suddenly had to put in yet another rail spur. Those who could provide information wouldn’t. That included Grant Kitamura, president of Malheur County Development Corp. and chief executive of a major onion processor; Greg Smith, the project manager, and Brad Baird, president of Anderson Perry & Associates.
The Enterprise continues to prepare such special reports to provide the community facts that otherwise would not come to light.
Here is that report and other stories:
Weekly feature: Oyster has come out of his shell
Oyster is a 5 1/2 year old male. When he first arrived at the Ontario shelter, he didn’t want anything to do with us. He was very hissy, scared and swatty.
We have been very patient with him and trying to show him we aren’t so bad. The kid now demands to be pet when we clean his cage. He has turned out to be a fantastic kitty!
Oyster is neutered, UTD on vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV & FIV. He is indoor only for his safety. No declawing.
Oyster was surrendered after his mom, who was one of the original volunteers with Ontario Feral Cat Project, suddenly passed away. Margie was a very devoted volunteer and lover of all creatures great and small. Come see why Oyster could be a great fit for your home.
SATURDAY ADOPTION EVENT: Every Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Constance McCullough House, 84 N.W. 2nd St. in Ontario.
–Information provided by the Ontario Feral Cat Project.
