Whether it's getting flashed by a geriatric hooker in Miami or baking in the heat of a forest fire in Oregon, there's little that journalist Ken Bilderback won't do to get a story worth telling.

Bilderback is a retired newspaper reporter and editor and former NFPA-certified volunteer Public Information Officer for the Gaston Rural Fire District in Oregon. His hobbies include listening to nonagenarians talk about Prohibition, creating videos of cats interacting with gophers, and saying "Aw, shucks!" while winning literary awards.

If only I could find a satellite image of Laurelwood in 1900 …

The photo above shows the approximate location of the John Walker Donation Land Claim, which formed the basis for what became Laurelwood. I wish I had a satellite photo from 1900 for comparison, but I can’t find one.
