Saturday’s Grand Opening of Toledo’s Event Center, home of Bonanza BBQ & Catering, was declared a great success by entrepreneurs Dan & Chris Gorton. Our weekend guest from Seattle was wowed by the signature Porky Pig Soup, and The Otter split his 3-meat combo with me, topped off by 2-layer homemade carrot cake. Delish!
Toledo Historical Society’s Don Brenner posted: One of the saddest posts I've ever had to write. Member Elise Brenner (my wife) passed away this morning (Wednesday, November 22) sometime between 8:20 am and 9 am. She will be fondly remembered by many folks in our town and, of course, our families.
Sunday outlook warned: Snow levels will lower to Cascade Pass level this evening. Expect up to 3 to 6 inches of new snow through tonight above 3,000 feet. This could cause hazardous driving conditions for those traveling across the Cascades after the Thanksgiving weekend.

Local Woman Donates Reader Board
TOLEDO November 13, 2017 Thanks to a donation from Sandy Miller Brusco, Toledo High School will receive a new, state-of-the-art reader board. The new device will replace the familiar sign in front of the school on Highway 505. “The current sign is showing its age. The new sign will be easier to read and easier to update.”, said Martin Huffman, Principal of Toledo High School.
Mrs. Brusco is the widow of Gene Miller, a Toledo resident and volunteer and retired teacher and coach, Primo Brusco. The sign is donated in their memories. “I’ve been thinking about this project for two years”, said Mrs. Miller Brusco. “I believe in paying it forward. This (sign) will benefit the whole community and area.”
Primo Brusco’s first teaching job was at Toledo High School in 1950. He coached all sports and was coach of several district champions. Primo was also the first “Big Cheese” in 1950. He was an active member of the Toledo community and was involved in the Elks, American Legion, Ocean Park Volunteer Firefighters and the Toledo Historical Society. He retired from education in 1977 as superintendent of Stevedore (CO) School District. Many Toledo residents remember Primo as a strict but loving teacher and coach.
“We’re so grateful for this donation”, said Brad Dykstra, Toledo School Board President. “The community relies on this sign for much of the information about what’s happening.”
Dedication of the sign will be on Tuesday, November 28 at 2 p.m. at Toledo High School. The public is invited to attend.
