Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin took some field burning photos yesterday, and she had a lot to of fields to choose from. Her description:
Fields were aflame today on my way home from work. These were taken at the corner of Sandner and Stayton-Scio Rd. today where I could see the smoke plumes from no less than 5 field burning fires.

Just a baby praying mantis. It was pretty still for the photo shoot but decided he wanted to take off after a few shots.
Awesome! Thanks, Dorothy.
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin spotted this awesome slice of life. Her description:
While driving home today I saw this horse-drawn wagon in nearby Jefferson. The friendly man waved as I took a picture and was on my way.
That makes me smile. Thanks, Dorothy!
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.
