Thanks to the Redmond Spokesman for the "flashback" to 75 years ago! April 13, 1944 — Ditch Pollution Violation of Law Pollution of irrigation ditches running through Redmond is a violation of the law, and any person found throwing refuse in the ditches will be prosecuted. This warning has been issued by Chief of Police Athel Dudley and C.E. Hutchens, representative of the state department of agriculture.

The cooperation of parents will be appreciated in helping to remedy the situation, officials of the district say.Read more
