Eagle Point

Eagle Point, Ore., laid claim in the early 1900’s to producing Bosc pears fit for a king.

One evening in the late 1800’s an unannounced visitor came to a small house built by Albert and Sarah Howlett on Little Butte Creek in Eagle Point, Ore.  When the stranger asked if he could stay the night, they invited him in.

Just about every school district in the country had a conversation about school safety after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last winter. 

Many upgraded their security procedures.
