A masked bandit has been seen around Stayton in recent days, and no garbage can is safe.
Witness Dorothy Loftin risked her personal safety to get photos of the alleged culprit. “He was walking around like he owned the place,” she said, still shaken from being so close to the apparent criminal.
The suspect is described as being short, furry, and rather cute. The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
We here at Stayton Daily Photo want to remind everyone to remain at a safe distance and do not engage.
Please examine the photos below to familiarize yourself with the suspect. If seen, do not call authorities. If possible, please obtain additional photographic evidence and send them to us. We appreciate your assistance in this ongoing investigation.
I posted a photo yesterday by guest photographer Dorothy Loftin showing some early signs of spring. Well, she outdid that for today, with actual flowers! These are early spring crocus, which I find to be beautiful. Thanks, Dorothy!
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin spotted these little bits of green. Her description:
While walking to my car yesterday, little signs of spring were everywhere!
I am so ready for spring. Those little bits of green will turn into bigger bits of green, and flowers will bloom, and it will be glorious. This part of Oregon stays pretty green all year round, but it definitely comes to life in the springtime.
Oh, my goodness. Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin spotted a whole bunch of geese in a field, and got some nifty pictures. Her description:
With the beautiful weather, the geese were quite active today. They would rest in the field for about 10 minutes and then swarm up again. My guess is there were 500+.
Very cool. Thanks, Dorothy! Be sure to click on the thumbnails below to see the rest of the photos.
I received another donation yesterday using the handy dandy donation button at right! Thanks so much!
Also in need: the Star Cinema, Stayton’s only movie theater, will have to switch their projector over to digital this year, or they won’t be able to stay in business. It’s an expensive proposition, and they are asking for people to buy gift cards which never expire as a means to raise money. If you live in the area and like movies, please consider buying a gift card from them.
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin did this thing where she went outside during sunrise and took today’s beautiful photo. I’m personally not terribly familiar with sunrises, as I much prefer to be where I can see them, since my bed doesn’t have an eastern view. Dorothy’s description:
A quick step outside this morning provided a serene feeling. I’ve watched these trees be planted, grown, Mostly harvested, and then break as the winter ice and the winds of the Valley wreck havoc upon them. This morning they were illuminated by the light of a new day.
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin spotted this adorable mailbox all decked out for the Christmas holiday. Her description:
I just love this mailbox, what a great simple decoration that really brings some of the beauty to the street without having to be too flashy. I bet the mail person likes it too!
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin spotted these awesome camels while driving the “back way” from Salem to Stayton (Aumsville Highway, instead of taking the more commonly traveled Highway 22). Her description:
For years we have driven the “other way” home from Salem on special occasions just so we could see the camels. If one drives Aumsville Hwy and doesn’t pay attention, they are easy to miss. Taken from the road mind you, this picture holds special memories started long ago that will be carried forward as long as these nice people continue to house special animals on their property.
