NEWBERG'S WHITE OAKS ARE COMING DOWN


It came down to a question between people and the grand historic oaks......and the people won. The Newberg city council voted last night (monday) night four to two to cut down two historic Oregon White Oaks to make room for the widening and straightening of Villa Road. Councilor Patrick Johnson said he purposedly traveled that road to experience some of the concerns about poor site distance....and he almost hit a family of bicyclist and pedestrians. He said he couldn't live with himself if he didn't act in the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
