A picture of the Grant County courthouse
We're in the process of gathering election results information from the Northwest's 119 counties, and as a result stopping by the courthouses, one by one. As part of the effort, we snap a picture or two of the outside of the courthouse building, to be used in eventual illustration (and evidence we were there).
Most of all this has been uneventful. A run-in with law enforcement in central Oregon last week did make up a disquieting incident, and a headline today out of Albany suggests a need to consider and discuss both.
A light rain was falling as I parked in the Grant County courthouse parking lot, and stepped out to take a couple of shots of the building, a little more difficult in this case than usual because much of the building was obscured by trees. Headed back to the car, I was called to by a uniformed law enforcement officer - the undersheriff, it turned out, who was accompanied by another officer who stayed a few feet behind him. He asked what I was doing.
