  • Weiser farmer Ray Laan bought his property off Indianhead Road about 15 years ago. For as many years, he and wife Karma have wanted to refurbish the barn that came with it. In September 2023, he finally decided it was time to pull the trigger. With the aid of contractors and various friends, he was able to lift the entire barn about four feet off the ground in order to pour a concrete foundation, which will ensure the once tipping structure won’t move. Above, Laan works on placing brand new cupolas, which he built by hand. Once finished, the new roofing shingles will be put in place. Photo by Philip A. Janquart

  • A crew for the City of Weiser spent a part of Friday pouring and finishing a new concrete walkway located at the covered picnic area at Memorial Park in northeast Weiser. Completion of the project means that persons with disabilities can now access the picnic area. Some people using wheelchairs and walkers previously had a hard time getting from the street, through the grass, to the area.

  • The 2024 Nazarene Church’s annual Easter egg hunt drew happy and excited children from all over the area. The youngest egg hunters started their search at noon on Saturday, having a grand time running in the sun and spotting hundreds of eggs scattered throughout the west yard of the church. Ten minutes later, the next age group of egg hunters found the colored prizes on the large south lawn, and, finally, the oldest group of children made a wild rush through the lawn on the east side of the church’s driveway. A grand time was had by all. Photo by Sarah Imada

The original project estimate of $1.038 million jumped to $1.43 million after workers discovered that there was more deterioration than was revealed in an initial inspection that involved divers equipped with lights.
