Canyon Conversations: History, heritage and a book drive

Historical news accounts recorded in Stayton through 1916 are on the cusp of being digitized, at which point they will become available for perusal.

But an additional six years of news accounts, through 1922, may be a collection of returnable bottles away.

That’s the scenario Santiam Historical Society President Diana Maul and member Terri Adams presented during Canyon Conversations at a popular midday Moxieberry on Wednesday, Oct. 11.

A backlog at the University of Oregon relegated the Stayton project to the queue, but the U of O projects cleared quickly enough that Stayton’s kicked in sooner

Ricky Martin graces the cover of Ocean Drive Magazine – 7News – WSVN

The October issue of Ocean Drive Magazine is usually Lynn’s favorite issue of the year because they always show hot guys with big biceps. Deco caught up with this year’s cover boy, who is none other than the man who got us all to shake our bon-bons — Ricky Martin.

Ricky Martin is no stranger to Miami.

Ricky Martin: “When I hear Miami, I go back home.”

And let’s just say gracing the cover of Ocean Drive Magazine is not exactly new for him.

Ricky Martin: “It’s not my first time though, and I’m really happy that they called me again.”

Ricky’s favorite look is the cover, but how does his sound to get us livin’ la vida loca?

Ricky Martin: “I felt like a pimp, and I acted out the pimp, and it felt good.”

There was nothing but love for Ricky on the red carpet at the W Hotel on South Beach as the mag

American Crime Story Comes to Ocean Drive to Re-Create Versace Murder

American Crime Story Comes to Ocean Drive to Re-Create Versace Murder

When Gianni Versace was shot on the front steps of his Ocean Drive mansion in 1997, Miami and the rest of the world mourned the loss of one of fashion’s most iconic and influential personalities. His horrific murder was such a defining event that many residents still think of his death as a way to mark the passage of time, almost like a local BC/AD.

Twenty years after the designer’s gruesome end, a film crew has returned to Ocean Drive to re-create the gory scene. The story of Versace’s murder will be told in season three of American Crime Story, the FX series that won an Emmy for its first season, The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Led by former Miami Herald-employee-turned-TV-show-creator Ryan Murphy, the ACS team arrived in South Beach this week to shoot exterior footage of
