FREE CAMPING AND DAY USE ON SATURDAY, JUNE 4 FOR STATE PARKS DAY

State parks throughout Oregon invite the public to camp and play for free Saturday, June 4 in celebration of State Parks Day.

Camping is free the night of June 4 in traditional sites — full hookup (sewer, electricity and water), electrical hookup (electricity and water), and tent sites. Parking is free both June 4 and June 5 at the 26 parks that charge a day-use parking fee.

Campsite reservations may be made by calling 800-452-5687 before 5 p.m. June 3. Or, reserve online at www.oregonstateparks.org. While the campsite rental is free, an $8 nonrefundable reservation fee still applies. Of the 52 state park campgrounds, 42 take reservations.

“State Parks Day is our way of thanking Oregonians for their commitment to our state parks,” said Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Director Lisa Sumption. “We invite Oregonians to come out and explore a new park or visit an old favorite.”

The Oregon State Legislature established Oregon State Parks Day in 1997 to focus public attention on Oregon’s state park system. The event is always the first Saturday in June.

Parks throughout the state will host activities including guided hikes–Saturday, June 4 is also National Trails Day–plus open houses, tours, special barbecues and guest appearances by J.R. Beaver, Oregon State Parks mascot.

Silver Falls State Park east of Salem will have free refreshments, a guided waterfall tour and its annual Foot Race Challenge, with a 5K, 6-mile and kids’ race. Stub Stewart State Park west of Portland will host a volunteer work party in the morning, followed by free lunch at Hilltop Day-use Area, a guided bike ride, scavenger hunt, skins and skulls display and more. See a fur trappers’ encampment at Champoeg State Heritage Area. Walk among the tents and work stations, ask questions of the interpreters and watch demonstrations of trapping, shooting, cooking and packing for the fur trade.

Visitors will also be able to fish, crab and clam without a license June 4-5 for Oregon’s Free Fishing Weekend, hosted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). ODFW will provide the gear, bait and instructions at parks around the state, including Benson State Recreation Area in the Columbia River Gorge and Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park and Fort Stevens State Park on the coast. Other free fishing events are listed at www.dfw.state.or.us/education/angling/free_fishing.asp.

Summer is almost here, which means boating season. See below for boating requirements and have a safe summer

In Oregon, boaters must have a certificate of title, certificate of number, and validation stickers to operate a motorboat of any length or sailboat longer than 12 feet legally on public waterways. This includes boats that are documented with a recreational endorsement by the U.S. Coast Guard and principally used or moored in Oregon.

Documented boats that have a recreational endorsement do not have an Oregon certificate of title and do not need to display an OR number but are required to register and display a current validation sticker on both sides of the aftermost part of the hull in the upper, square foot, below the deck line. All other recreational boats moored in Oregon are required to have current validation sticker.

The certificate of number, commonly called the “registration card,” is a pocket-sized card that must be on board and available for inspection by an enforcement officer whenever the boat is being operated. The registration number is specific to the boat and is issued with the title and registration.

The registration number (OR#) and validation sticker (decal) must be displayed on the starboard and port side bow of the boat. Once a number is issued, it can be painted, applied as a decal sticker, or otherwise affixed to the bow and placed above the water line so it can be read easily. Numbers are read from left to right on both sides of the bow and must be in 3-inch high block letters (not slanted) and separated by at least 2 inches. Letters must be in a contrasting color to the boat’s hull color or striping. The validation sticker (decal -good for two calendar years) must be affixed on each side of the boat and placed in line. The sticker on the port side is after the OR number and on the starboard side, before the OR number (see illustration). The decal expires on December 31 of the year indicated on the sticker.

The certificate of title, certificate of number and validation stickers (decals) can be obtained by completing an application and submitting the proper fee with documentation to the Oregon State Marine Board. Many boat dealers will submit the documents on your behalf for an agent fee.

Obtaining a title and certificate of number can take anywhere from a month to four months, depending on the boat dealer or other documents that may be needed to complete the transaction.

Failure to have a certificate of registration for documented vessels is a B violation and a $260 fine. Failure for a boat operator to carry a certificate of number is a D violation and a $$110 fine. Boaters can also be cited with failure to obtain a title, a D violation with $110 fine. To learn more about this topic and other legal requirements of boating, visit http://www.boatoregon.com/.

Lebanon Firefighters Cut two victims from wreckage

Two adult females were transported to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center by ambulance on Wednesday evening following a two vehicle head on collision on Denny School Road in Lebanon. Firefighters and paramedics from the Lebanon Fire District arrived to find one vehicle in the roadway and another in a ditch at the intersection of Denny School Road and Sand Ridge Road, west of Lebanon. An adult male and female in the second vehicle refused transportation.

Firefighters used hydraulic extrication tools to spread open and remove the passenger door from the vehicle on the roadway, and removed its roof in order to extricate the two victims who were pinned inside. Both victims were using their seat belts and the vehicle’s airbags deployed. One engine, two medic units, a Battalion Chief and two chief officers from the Lebanon Fire District were on scene for 46 minutes and were assisted by crews from the Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District and the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
