Where were you 50 years ago?

Shortly before Thanksgiving in 1963, the world was stunned by news of the assassination of one of the most charismatic presidents of the United States — John Kennedy. What followed in those days of nationwide mourning has left images of his grieving young family forever embedded in history.

What do you remember from Nov. 22, 1963? Where were you when the news reached you? Were you one of the millions of people who sent a letter, card or note of condolence to the Kennedy family? Did you have any personal encounters with the president during his trips through the Northwest?

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. The Outlook would like to hear your stories and remembrances, which will be printed in the paper Friday, Nov. 22.

Springwater Corridor trail project still closed to public

The 2.25-mile Springwater Trail project began last summer and has experienced some weather delays in recent weeks. The new estimated completion date is Nov. 25.

Clackamas County is working with the Oregon Department and Transportation and a contractor to complete construction between Rugg Road and Dee Street in Boring.

Work still needing to be done includes shoulder gravel, hydro-seeding, completion of drainage ditches, bridge railings, signing, striping, landscaping, intersection work and the installation of bollards.

The contactor has closed access to the area in order to safely move personnel, equipment, supply trucks and construction vehicles along the length of the trail and complete the project within this new timeframe. Therefore, the trail will remain closed to public access, including all organized hiking and cycling groups.
