An open house for the public to bid her farewell is from 2-4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at The Outlook, 1190 N.E. Division St.

Stine plans to freelance as a writer, editor and media consultant as time allows, but primarily will coordinate the very busy lives of her three young children.

Archery range moves to Chinook Landing

Channel your inner Robin Hood by shooting a bow and arrow at Chinook Landing Marine Park’s new and improved archery range.

The archery range used to be a short distance away at Blue Lake Regional Park, but Metro relocated it to Chinook Landing in Fairview.

Metro owns the two east Multnomah County parks.

The new range includes six targets between 10 and 60 yards, at 10-yard increments.

Metro also announced a new trail at Blue Lake Park that connects to the 40-mile loop and will help trail users get from Marine Drive to the park itself.
