Sisters Development Code states that: "Written authorization by the Community Development Director or designee is required for the removal, major pruning, or planting of public trees or the attachment of seasonal holiday lights to public trees."

Highway 22 expected to reopen Friday
ODOT spokesman Peter Murphy told The Nugget this afternoon that the agency expects the Highway 22 route into the Willamette Valley to reopen in the next 24 hours. The highway has been closed between milepost 55 at the east end of Idanha to the Santiam Junction where Highway 22 and Highway 20 intersect due to damage caused by a fuel spill from a tanker trailer crash late Friday night, December 15, at milepost 63.

"Most of the environmental clean up has been completed," an ODOT statement reported. "Crews now must grind away the old pavement, pave it over and install new guardrail before the road can be opened to travelers. Crews have been working in difficult conditions the past several days to get the road open in time for the Christmas holidays."

Further updates are expected Friday morning.

Sisters crash sends man to jail
A California man is in jail and a Sisters woman was taken to the hospital after a motor vehicle crash on Locust Street early Wednesday morning.

According to Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Mike Biondi, 25-year-old Breanna McClung of Sisters was delivering newspapers in a Ford Explorer at about 05:06 a.m. and was stopped on the southbound shoulder of S. Locust St., dispensing papers when she saw a Subaru headed south on Locust at a high rate of speed.

The Subaru struck McClung's vehicle head-on with enough force to push it backwards over 30 feet on the snow-covered roadway, Biondi reported.

McClung was transported to St. Charles Medical Center-Redmond with non-life threatening injuries.

Responding deputies arrested 55-year-old Timothy Yett of Yosemite, California, on charges of third-degree assault; driving under the influence of intoxicants; and reckless driving.

He was transported to jail with a bail set at $20,000.

Sisters Fire District personnel responded to the crash, which blocked the southbound lane of Locust Street.

Icy fog is an occasional visitor
It's a fact of nature that the ability of air to contain, or "hold," water in the gaseous state is dependent upon temperature. When the atmosphere is cooled, that capacity is reduced. Air is said to be saturated when it can't "carry" any more water vapor. This is the process by which clouds are born.
