Oakdale church, sold for $1, is reborn as a custom home

What arguably is the most distinctive home in Oakdale will go on the market this week. The home’s 14-foot-tall, Gothic-style windows face both streets on its corner lot. It’s one of the oldest homes in town at nearly 125 years. And it certainly is the only home with a steeple and church bell rising high above the front door.

OID fallowing farmers won’t be left high and dry

Oakdale Irrigation District farmers who signed 59 contracts to idle land eventually will be paid even though the fallowing program fell apart, board members decided. Doing that, however, could violate a judge’s ruling. Also, the board canceled an automatic 3 percent raise in water rates for 2017.

OID is now 0-2 in recent attorney-fee lawsuits

An appeals court sides with neighbors in an east Oakdale subdivision, relieving them from paying $369,300 in attorney fees after losing a lawsuit to the Oakdale Irrigation District. Five weeks ago, OID lost a separate bid to have opponents in an unrelated case pay attorney fees for board member Gary Osmundson after he was dismissed from that lawsuit.
