In last month’s article about bike lanes on Cornell, LUT asked us to clarify the following (corrections were made in the online versions but the comments came in after the issue was printed):
The mountable curb is not to facilitate cars driving up on the cycle track or sidewalk… just to allow bikes to bypass obstructions in the cycle track.
All options required purchase of property for additional ROW. The cost increases are a combination of increased construction costs and additional ROW needed. 
The illustration doesn’t clearly show that there is a center turn lane in addition to the two travel lanes

Fake News Discussion

Thurs., Nov. 9, 7-8:30 pm, Beaverton Library, 12375 SW 5th St.

On both national and local levels, Oregonians have seen how the news can both represent and misrepresent the facts at hand. From debate over local opinions on the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to the discourse around “alternative facts,” it can seem difficult to find current and accurate information to use as we make decisions in our communities.

The Beaverton City Library will host “Beyond Fake News: How We Find Accurate Information About the World.” This conversation, led by librarian Kelly McElroy, gives Oregonians a chance to consider their own practices and values around news consumption.

Kelly McElroy is an outreach librarian at Oregon State University. The event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project. The program is free and open to the public; no registration required.

For more information, visit or call 503-644-2197. Beaverton City Library is one of fifteen member libraries in Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS), which works to provide responsive and efficient library service countywide through centralized catalog, courier and other services.

Choirs to Present Concert for Hurricane Relief

Fri., Nov. 17, 7:30 pm, St. Matthew Catholic Church, 475 SE 3rd Ave. Hillsboro.

The PCC Rock Creek music program will present Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass featuring the PCC Rock Creek choirs, the Pacific University Concert Choir, and the Forest Grove High School Chamber Choir. Dr. Samuel Barbara, newly appointed to the PCC Rock Creek faculty as director of choral and vocal studies, will conduct.

A donation of $10 is appreciated. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Maria.

“I chose the Gospel Mass because I was looking for something energetic and engaging,” says Barbara. “The piece is great fun for singers. The uplifting energy is perfect for a benefit concert and at a time of such political unrest, I wanted something that celebrates diversity and unity. Premiered in 1979 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Ray’s Gospel Mass has been sung by choirs around the world. Based on the text of the Catholic Mass, the work has achieved an ecumenical appeal, allowing choirs from all denominations to embrace these texts in a gospel music style.

For more information about the concert, please contact Samuel Barbara at, 971-722-7867, or view the music program’s website page and Facebook page.

Chetana Foundation adopts Cornell

Chetana derives from a Sanskrit word meaning Consciousness, the core vision on which the Chetana Foundation emerged. It is a non-profit organization based out of Portland, started in 2016, by local community members of Indian origin with a mission to spread happiness through 'sangha seva' (Sanskrit word for 'selfless service to community'). Helping people from all walks of life regardless of race, religion, income levels, cultural and political beliefs is a key driver for Chetana volunteers who have been actively undertaking several social welfare programs to help local communities, specifically in the Portland and Pacific Northwest region.

To name a few, Chetana volunteers have been cooking and serving delicious meals at local shelters for homeless, packaging food at Oregon Food Bank, conducting food drives, promoting healthy initiatives, teaching kids, adopting roads, planting trees and extending support at retirement homes. The organization is now 300+ volunteers strong and is growing to help further in local Portland communities.

Chetana Foundation

Cornell Road adoption was one such event on September 24, where a team of 27 Chetana volunteers participated, removing trash from Highway 26 to Murray Boulevard. An active team of volunteers including several teens joined hands in a fun environment and spent 2-3 hours of an early Sunday morning clearing all non-degradable trash on both sides of the road.

"It was a wonderful way to spend time on a Sunday morning with my wife to help clean a stretch of road that we frequented with our kids", said Ravi Venigalla, one of the Chetana Organizers and volunteers, a Sunset parent who works at Kaiser and lives in the area. Chetana will be conducting further periodic cleanup drives on this road, and will be glad to have active volunteers from local community joining to take care of our beautiful Cedar Mill neighborhood and spread happiness in our communities.

TVF&R Firefighters support military families and USO with t-shirt campaign

This Veterans Day, you might see Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters and personnel around town wearing customized camouflage shirts. Our hope is that they will help raise awareness and support for the work of the United Services Organization, a nonprofit that assists troops through every step of their military service from deployment to rehabilitation to reintegration.

Tualatin Valley Firefighters Union Local 1660 partnered with TVF&R on this project as a way to honor those who have chosen to serve our nation at home and abroad as members of the U.S. military.

TVF&R personnel wore these special USO shirts on duty for the first time on September 11, and will wear them again on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, Memorial Day, May 28, D-Day June 6, and Independence Day on July 4 of each year.

Proceeds from the sale of these shirts that crews purchased will benefit services provided to military personnel and their families by the USO’s Northwest Office at Portland International Airport. For the September 11 launch of these shirts, more than $4,200 was raised for the USO.

The fire service has long welcomed members of the military and veterans to our ranks. TVF&R is proud to have 81 members of our family who are military veterans and answered the call to serve the United States.

Red Cross calls for blood donors before the holiday season

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, many regular donors delay giving due to holiday activities and travel. This often decreases the amount of donated blood available for patients. More donations are needed in the weeks leading up to the holidays for patients like Emily Bratton. After the birth of her first child, she received several units of blood.

“I know that my life was saved because someone, somewhere, was willing to donate their blood,” said Bratton. “There aren’t words to describe how incredibly thankful I am that people are willing to donate blood to help a stranger.”

Give patients in need another reason to be thankful—make an appointment to give blood. Upcoming blood donation opportunities Nov. 1-15:

Mon., Nov. 6, 11-4 pm, PCC Bldg 9, 17705 NW Springville Road.

Mon., Nov. 6, 1:30-7 pm, Sunset Presbyterian Church, 14986 NW Cornell Road.

Tue., Nov. 7, 11-4:30 pm, PCC Bldg 9, 17705 NW Springville Road.

Mondays, Nov. 13 & 21: 1:30-7 pm, Sunset Presbyterian Church, 14986 NW Cornell Road.

To schedule an appointment, download the free American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors are encouraged to save time the day of donation by completing the online health history questionnaire via RapidPass at

PCC Rock Creek Entrance Will Move

Portland Community College will partner with Washington County to widen and move the entrance to the PCC Rock Creek Campus to align with 178th St. and Springville Road.

According to Linda Degman, director of the PCC Bond Program, the College will donate the land required for the project and approximately $1 million. These funds will come from two sources: the 2008 bond measure and from Transportation Development Tax revenue the College has earned through campus development as a result of the 2008 bond.

“PCC will partner with Washington County on the design of the new entrance,” Degman said. “The critical part of this partnership is that it will result in a stop light and pedestrian crosswalk at 178th and Springville Road. This has been a safety concern for many years, and the college is relieved to know that our students, faculty, staff and campus visitors will have a safer entrance to the campus.”

Degman said the timeline for the project is tentative, but the hope is to have design drawings in hand by summer 2018. The project cannot begin until all current work on Springville Road is completed, estimated to be October 2018.

Greening the Holidays: Gift Wrap Ideas

Greening the Holidays: Gift Wrap Ideas

Tues., Nov. 21, noon, Washington Street Conference Center, Rm 109, 102 SW Washington St, Hillsboro

Do you face an uphill battle each year with Wrapping Paper Mountain? Want to dress up your gifts in new ways? Wondering how to take the stuff out of gift giving? The final Green Bag event of 2017 is just for you! Please bring your lunch and be prepared for a hands-on gift wrapping workshop.

Jennifer Nelson, Sustainability Program Educator, will share tips and tricks for tackling one of the biggest holiday waste issues - gift wrap.

You can do something about this. Join us to learn how to wrap without paper, how to collect and creatively reuse gift wrap, how to choose no-wrap gifts, and how to make your own gift-decorating accessories. We’ll make repurposed gift tags together to take home, and if you have a gift ready to wrap, bring it along to try one of these techniques.

Newt Day is back!

Sat., Nov. 4, noon-4 pm, Tualatin Hills Nature Center, 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton

THPRD’s celebration of the rough-skinned amphibian returns! Visitors will learn about the amazing adaptations of newts and other forest inhabitants through interactive activities and education stations programmed by THPRD’s Natural Resources experts.


“Newt Day gives visitors a peek at the super powers that forest dwelling animals and plants need to survive in the wild,” explained Karen Munday, Environmental Education Program Coordinator. “When we talk about amazing animal adaptations, the rough-skinned newt has one of the best! This small salamander is so toxic only one other animal can eat it and survive!”

Come learn how newts evade predators, survive in or out of water and camouflage themselves with a single leaf. Afterward, head into the Tualatin Hills Nature Park for a self-guided adventure; five-plus miles of trail means there are a lot of opportunities to locate newts and other forest creatures.

This family-friendly event is designed to inspire exploration of nature during the season when it is tempting to stay inside. Visitors are encouraged to walk the grounds rain or shine, as newts enjoy seasonally wet weather. Newt Day admission is $3 per person (children 2 and under are free). For more information, call the Tualatin Hills Nature Center at 503-629-6350.

Greenlick Announces Re-Election Bid

Rep. Mitch Greenlick (D-Portland) announced he would seek re-election to House District 33, which includes parts of Northwest Portland and Washington County (all of Cedar Mill).

“Oregon is a land of opportunity—but there is more that we can do to make sure that opportunity is available to everyone,” Rep. Greenlick said. “That is why I first ran and what continues to drive me. Every person who calls this state home deserves to have a quality education, good, affordable health care, and economic opportunity. Though we have made great strides in recent sessions to bring healthcare to most, end pay disparities, and ensure our communities are welcoming and inclusive, there is still work to be done.”

During the 2017 session, Rep. Greenlick was the chief sponsor of legislation to cut down on wood smoke pollution throughout the state, as well as legislation to increase access to solar panels. In addition, Rep. Greenlick supported legislation to protect the privacy of immigrants by strengthening the laws around what information public bodies can share with the federal government. He also fought for increased transparency from Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organizations and he worked to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

This session, Rep. Greenlick serves as the chair of the House Committee on Health Care and House Committee on Conduct. He also sits on the House Committee on Judiciary. A retired public health researcher and educator, he lives in Northwest Portland with his wife Harriet. To learn more about Rep. Mitch Greenlick, visit
