Geographic Names Board names Findley Buttes to remember settler, tribal history The Oregon Geographic Names Board at its fall board meeting Saturday, Oct. 30, in Troutdale voted to recommend approval of three names, two honoring settlers and one recognizing an ancient tribal name, for the three Findley Buttes on the Zumwalt Prairie in Wallowa County. Those names, which will now be forwarded to the National Board of Geographic Names, are Findley Butte, Mreχsem Hrepey Butte, and Harsin Butte. The board further offered Wihiatyaksa as a variant name for I-Iarsin Butte, and Brumback as a variant name for Mreχsem Hrepey Butte on the United States Geological Services (USGS) mapping data bases.

The buttes, collectively called the Findley Buttes, are largely located on land owned by The Nature Conservancy, which participated in the process. In other actions, the board recommended approval of names for Ghost and Fern creeks in Washington County and for Biggs Arch and Matties Hump near Biggs Junction in Sherman County. They recommended against applications for Rock Flour Hill in Wasco County and an application to replace 'Squaw' geographic names in Jackson County with the term, "Indian Maiden." The board delayed action until a special meeting later in the year on proposals by the Umatilla tribes to replace 44 'Squaw' names in nine Eastern Oregon counties with tribal names. Action by the Oregon legislature, beginning nine years ago, called upon the Oregon Geographic Names Board and the federal government to replace 'Squaw' geographic names in Oregon because the term has become derogatory.

BEe Bancorp announces dividend for 2010 Bank of Eastern Oregon President and CEO, Jeff Bailey, has announced that that the board of directors of BEe Bancorp has voted to declare a $0.20 per share dividend for 2010. The dividend, according to Bailey, will be paid to shareholders of record as of December 6, 2010, payable on or before December 15. According to BEe Board Chairman Brad Anderson, BEe Bancorp has paid a dividend 24 of the past 25 years. Dividends are a reflection of the financial , stal!i _ty and profitability of the bank. "We are very happy to be able to provide this dividend to our shareholders," Anderson said. In 2009, the bank's directors made the decision to forego payment of dividends during the recent recession. According to Bailey, the actions helped to strengthen capital and complimented the successful capital increase of last winter. "The board will continue to assess overall gconomic conditions and make decisions that are in the long term best interest of our shareholders, customers, employees, and communities," said Bailey.
