Over the last two decades the transition of the unincorporated community of Glenwood must have often felt like no one cared. More a rejected piece of real estate trapped between Eugene and Springfield than a gold mine of opportunities for either or both of those ranking cities, Glenwood has long been the short-straw loser when it came to discussions about the future.

The Village Green's last hurrah: Enduring high notes
Are the good times really over for good at the Village Green? If you ask some of the longtime regulars of the iconic hotel — known for having live music at least six nights a week in the lounge — rumors of its demise have been greatly exaggerated. With a change in ownership for the first time in more than 60 years, the Village Green closed its doors to the public on Thursday, Sept. 30.

Cottage Grove's Woodard reshapes the landscape
COTTAGE GROVE – W.A. Woodard was a tenacious, self-made businessman, and was, by nature, generous. Woodard credited his success to his employees and the town of Cottage Grove and wanted to improve the quality of life for both. Known for making timely donations to worthy causes and helping employees, his early charity was rather random. His wife Dutee helped guide him into more focused giving.
