I just received the extra yard debris cans I ordered from my garbage hauler (Pride Disposal). With 13 mature alder trees plus several other mature deciduous trees, we had made ample use of the free street sweeping and very sorry to see it end. The extra yard debris cans are just $1.50 each for an entire month. I ordered 5, so for just $7.50 extra in October, I will still get curbside pick up of my leaves - no hauling to a leaf drop off. This could be a good solution for you and your neighbors too!

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Covid-19 preparedness. Don't rely on YouTube, Facebook friends or "influencers" for information on staying healthy. The CDC has extensive - and accurate information. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/get-your-household-ready-for-COVID-19.html CDC advice in a nutshell: 1. Wash your hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds every time you return from mass transit, school, work, shopping. 2. When at work or school, wash hands often or use hand sanitizer. 3. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue. If you use a tissue, discard properly and wash hands or use sanitizer. 4. Clean frequently touched surfaces at home and work with regular household detergents and water. 5. Stay home if you are ill.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

With deeply mixed feelings I am announcing that the December issue of the Oak Hills Oracle will be the last. After 19 years as the owner and editor I am ready to retire. After six months on the market, a buyer has not been found and I will have to close it down. The Oracle has been published every month since 1973 (!) and it will be a sad loss for the community.

I am grateful for all the support I have received in the community over the years. Thank you!

LOCK YOUR VEHICLES!
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has received several reports of car prowlers and car break-ins around the Bethany area recently. Please work with us to end this trend by locking your car doors and participating in the #9PMRoutine before bed.

Every night at 9:00PM, we encourage the community to lock up property, turn on lights and bring in valuables to reduce the likelihood of falling victim to property crimes.

- LOCK UP your car, house, windows, garage, gates and shed.
- TURN ON exterior lights, security cameras and alarm system.
- BRING IN valuables from your car, yard, patio and porch.

Recent Glencoe HS graduate shot, killed at house party in Washington Co. Airbnb rental

Neighbors should be aware of a potential danger to our neighborhood. There was recently a fatal shooting at a house party in Rock Creek. A 19 year old was killed. Reports in the aftermath of the shooting were that hundreds of teens were seen running from the house. The location was an AirBnB "party rental". Police and county officials are well aware of a second "party house" operating in Terra Linda. There are no laws or rules at the State or County level to prevent owners from using their properties for these kinds of activities.

Oak Hills needs a change to our CC&R's if we want to protect our families, our neighborhood, and our property values. The board's survey showed strong support for limits on short term rentals, but please reach out to board members to encourage them to move forward on crafting a change in our CC&R's.

Thank you for your article on the Teal Pumpkin project!
Thank you for the article on the Teal Pumpkin project! I found these at Fred Meyer today. 16 individually wrapped toys currently buy one get one half off. Something I do every year is to utilize party favors! It's inexpensive and you get a pretty good variety. I mix all the party favors into a large bowl and let the kids pick which item from the bowl they'd like to have.
Am I in time to request an article (or write something up) for late September/Early October Halloween/trick or treat info? Specifically the Turquoise Pumpkin- alternative to candy option- for kids who are diabetic or have food allergies. I think it'd be great to spread the word around the neighborhood and let as many families as possible participate. Do let me know, and Thank You.
