VOLUME 4, NUMBER 223
Saturday, October 14, 2023
Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: Philomath High’s football team, playing a different style of offense in response to roster challenges, lost to Marist Catholic Friday night but remains in contention for a play-in game. Plus, I have my Three Things column for the week with segments on Indigenous Peoples Day, Trunk or Treat and ODOT road maintenance. Also, read this week’s Mount Union Stories please — it took me a long time to type it in (it has to do with a train crash in 1895 that killed a man who grew up in Philomath).
Thanks for reading!
