Our Town Eastern Oregon

Dec. 27, 2012 8:06 p.m.

Today we're bringing you highlights from the Our Town shows in eastern Oregon: Monument, Baker City and Ontario. Monument As part of the Our Town series, we're traveled to Monument. According to the 2010 census, this southeastern Oregon town on the John Day River has a population of 128. That doesn't include people who live in outlying areas who are also part of the community. Ranching is the primary source of employment for people in Monument. This website devoted to the town describes it as a place where wildlife is plentiful:

Rocky mountain elk and mule deer are well know for coming down from the mountains and feeding in the local alfalfa fields and hay stacks. Steelhead spawn in the small creeks that feed into the John Day River, along with small mouth bass and trout. Occasionally, beavers, bald eagles, ospreys, badgers, rock chucks, geese, whooping cranes, antelopes, bobcats, cougars, coyotes and even a rattlesnake can be seen.
People make all kinds of accommodations to live in a town like Monument. The closest doctor's office is 60 miles away in John Day. There's a small convenience store in town, but people do most of their grocery shopping elsewhere. One resident told us she drives to Bend — three or four hours away, depending on what route she takes — to shop at Costco once a month. You can learn much more about Monument, see a slideshow of the people and places, and listen to the whole show here. Here are some photos shot during the Think Out Loud taping at the Monument Senior Center:
