Linn-Benton Backwash

Last week saw a rush of Corvallis’ lower income families heading out on the town to look and not shop, because rent is ridiculous. While some citizens have been hit hard with the lack of affordable housing, one Corvallisite who wished to remain anonymous said, “It’s no big deal, I can almost taste the food through all these restaurant windows for free.”

Meanwhile over in Albany, a new fire station just went live and they’ve got a really, really old bell. If you’re into bells with a 140-year vintage, you might want to go check it out, because that’s what it is. Also, they save people there by running into fires. That’s also interesting.

Also out in Albany, there’s an opportunity to pay people to indirectly scare the crap out of you. The Monteith Society is putting together their $50 experience, which comes complete with real life paranormal investigators (no really, they’re real). The only ghost-catching gear I need to know how to use are my karate chops. If you’re interested, Google it with all your might. 

Note: I was not paid to half-as* endorse this pseudo-science adventure. It’s just that the rest of what’s happening in Albany is boring as hell. Also of note: I will scare you for $50 as well.

The Lebanon Log: Errbody goin’ crazy for the Zebra out in Lebanon, but I’m not convinced. Looks like a Lisa Frank sticker to me. Could easily be a paint job. Then again, this is Lebanon we’re talking about. UFOs called in to the cops… half-naked dudes doing karate in parking lots… crazy people attacking light poles with machetes… the constant theft of Coors Light. Why not a Zebra? Why not, indeed.
