PLACING THE DETAILS - Michele Kler of Portland's Art+Design spent last week - with several starts and stops due to cold weather - reworking the World War II mural at the Scappoose Veterans Memorial in Heritage Park.
Kler, who grew up in Scappoose and graduated from Scappoose High School, originally painted the mural 10 years ago. She also painted the geographic scenes on the flanking block walls.
For her, a job in Scappoose is a return to her roots. 'I just got my whole start out here as an artist,' she says.
