Thursday Movie Night “Men of Honor” – Thursday, September 14 @ 5pm

Join us for free popcorn, cartoons, followed by the movie at 5:30.

“A riveting tale of bucking the odds and overcoming discrimination, Men Of Honor tells the story of Carl Brashear, the son of a Kentucky sharecropper who joins the newly-integrated Navy. Carl’s training officer, Billy Sunday, wants no part of Carl or his ambitions. Sunday, a celebrated master Chief Navy Diver whose exploits as a troublemaker are as legendary as his accomplishments as a diver, relentlessly taunts and challenges Carl, expecting him to falter and quit. But Carl has other ideas. His goal is clear, his determination fixed. Nothing will stand in the way of his dream of becoming a Navy Diver. Not even Billy Sunday.”

Social Hour Friday, September 15th, at 3pm in the Clubhouse

Wendy Wilson, manager of the Sutherlin Food Pantry, will be here to discuss an extremely beneficial service to our community. Wendy will cover securing the food, including donations from SKP park members. Those who qualify to receive food on Mondays and Wednesdays and the number of families involved will be discussed. Human and pet food needs have increased substantially, and Wendy will explain why.

Questions such as Could the Pantry use our garden produce when more is grown than we can consume? What do volunteers do in the Pantry?

Please attend and bring light snacks to share and enjoy a glass of wine if you wish.

Social Hour Friday, September 8th, 3pm in the Clubhouse

We are privileged to have Terry Prestianni, Sutherlin, Superintendent of Schools, and possibly a member of the School Board, on Friday as our speaker. Terry has invited JR Guthrie to accompany him to tell us about our school system, including the number of schools in the district and the level of students that attend.

The speakers will give an overview of the responsibility of the District and School Board and review programs that prepare students for either entering the trades or attending college after graduation.

This is an opportunity to learn of an ad hoc group of teachers, businesses, and other representative citizens working with an architect to advise and assist in designing changes necessary to increase safety and make necessary changes for expansion.

Members may not have children in our school; however, supporting the next generation is vital.

Update on Logging Adjacent Property

Posted in General Interest, Members | 1 Comment

Aug. 27th morning update for the #TyeeRidgeComplex fires –

Last night, crews saw active fire growth on the Cougar Creek and Rattlesnake Ridge fires which grew together. There was also very active fire, including uphill runs on the Lighthouse 3 and 4 fires. Overnight, OSFM crews provided protection from active fire to homes near the fires. There has been no loss to any homes or structures to date. There is potential for significant fire growth on some of the fires over the next couple of days. One new fire start was found last evening and added to the complex.

Challenges facing firefighters include steep terrain, limited road access, warm weather, heavy smoke and extremely dry conditions. Ten helicopters have been dropping water on the fires in support of ground forces, but heavy smoke and low visibility has limited use of fixed-wing aircraft. Crews will continue to support the local district with initial attack when requested. Weather over the fires is expected to remain in the high 70s to low 80s with light winds today with continued heavy smoke.

Firefighters and equipment will continue arriving today from around Oregon and nationally to support forces on the Complex, which is about 20 road miles NW of Roseburg. Two more Oregon State Fire Marshal structural task forces—one from Clatsop County this morning and one from Yamhill this afternoon—are expected to join the five already at the fire. They are focused on preparing structures to minimize fire risk.

A total of 73 residences are under Level 3 (Go Now!) evacuation orders and 31 at Level 2 (Be Set). An estimated 125 people have evacuated from the Hubbard Creek Road area west of the town of Umpqua. Douglas County Emergency Management has worked with the Red Cross to set up a shelter for evacuees at the Oakland Elementary School at 499 NE Spruce Street in Oakland. To shelter livestock, contact Douglas County Fairgrounds at 541-957-7010. Companion pets can be sheltered at Saving Grace animal shelter in Roseburg. Evacuation areas remain unchanged. To view the current evacuation information map, go to

Community Meeting Scheduled: The Tyee Ridge Complex management teams will be holding a community meeting tomorrow, Monday, Aug. 28, 2023 at 7 p.m.
Location: Roseburg Country Club, 5051 Garden Valley Road, Roseburg

Emergency Response

Timber Valley emergency preparation is terrific. During the recent hot days, notices went out via Rainedout to let our residents know that the Clubhouse was available as a cooling center. Hummingbird Lane is a great street to live on. We care for each other, and here is an example of what I am referring to. During the 107 temperature, our Block Captain, Rachael Smithey, and Co-Captain, Dar Hoch, went to each site to see if the resident was okay and if anything was needed. They made sure everyone had the alert on their phone to receive alerts.

Update to Rules and Regulations – Watering of Grass Lawns on Member Lots

At the August 17, 2023 Open Board Meeting, the Board of Directors passed a motion to insert this paragraph into the Rules and Regulations.

Lot Maintenance:
4. Due to the increased cost of water and sewer absorbed from the City of Sutherlin, watering of grass lawns on Member Lots is prohibited. Other plants may be hand-watered as needed, but a hose may never be left running unattended.

Everyone’s understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated!
