Alpenglow Park

There’s a new community park coming to southeast Bend. Bend Parks and Rec Project Manager Ian Isaacson says they broke ground last week on Alpenglow Park, a 37 acre site on southeast 15th street north of Knott Road. He says the park will have a water playground or “sprayground”, trails, and even a bouldering area for climbers of varying skill levels. The district has allocated over 9 and a half million dollars for the development of the park, which is expected to open summer 2022.

Sheriff's department New Technology

High speed pursuits are not uncommon in our area and they are dangerous for those involved and for the public. Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson said the pursuing officer has to weight the Risk versus Benefits of continuing the chase. To bring a high-speed pursuit to a quick, safe conclusion the Sheriff’s Office will be implementing some new technology. The Star-Chaser: A tracking device which can be launched onto the suspect vehicle from the patrol car. And, a mobile spike-strip which enables a patrol unit to deflate a suspects' tires while driving. Sheriff Nelson emphasizes the purpose of the new technology is to end high speed pursuits quicker.

Extortion Charges

A Bend resident is facing charges of extortion relating to an alleged threat made against a Redmond landscaper last summer. The Deschutes County District Attorney’s office says 61 year old Thomas Schlossmacher sent a text to Cuauhtémoc (qua-TAY-moc) Cardona threatening to turn him in to immigration authorities if he didn’t pay 15-hundred dollars on a truck that was used as partial payment for Cardona’s landscape work. The D-A’s office says it’s unlawful to threaten to report someone’s suspected immigration status to compel them to do something. Officials say Cardona is a legal U-S resident.

Blood Needed

Winter Storms in the Willamette Valley and across the country continue to have a ripple effect in the state. The Red Cross says the 9 days of weather-related closures have impacted their blood drives and their blood supply. Sharon Jones with the Red Cross says they’re looking to other areas like Central Oregon to replenish their blood and plasma reserves. You can donate blood today at Planet Fitness on Greenwood in Bend from 8:30am to 1:30pm or go to redcrossblood-dot-org.
