Scott's Cycle Recovers Stolen Bike; SCAN to Talk Cemetery Connection - Newsbits

Another early
Scott's Cycle ad, 1915
How great is this?!  Over the weekend, folks at Scott's Cycle recognized a stolen bicycle that had been brought in for repair.
Exciting Day at the bike shop!!! Tony Jr's bike rolled in for a repair. Yes it was stolen and yes we kept it for him. Plus we found out the gentleman who brought it in is a fugitive. Wowie! To bad he made a break before the police arrived. BUT we did get his name and phone number....funny the police didn't have this info. But we did share it with them.
That's terrific.Thanks for looking out for people and their bikes!

SCAN to Discuss Pioneer Cemetery

The South Central Association of Neighbors meets Wednesday, March 13th at 6:30 p.m. in the South Salem High School Library at 1910 Church Street SE.

A favorite headstone.
John Shunk Zieber was U. S. Surveyor General for the State of Oregon,
worked for Asahel Bush, and was Asahel's father-in-law
On the agenda is "Pedestrian Access into Pioneer Cemetery." You may recall that the easement on the adjacent alley is for people on foot only, and Councilors and many others remained uncomfortable by the prospect of people on bike cutting through the cemetery. At the same time, Council did not make provision for a new access point and gate in the fence on the north side of the cemetery, or for a paved or graveled path. So at present, the idea of a connection even for people on foot is theoretical only, and some Councilors even seemed a interested in keeping it that way. (More history on the process here.)

Concerns from February 2005
It will take pressure and community support to advance the project, and so if you live nearby or would use a connection through the cemetery, consider attending the neighborhood meeting to show your support and to learn about what the next steps might be.
