Reference is made to that certain deed of trust (the "Trust Deed") dated June 20, 2001, executed by Frank F. Dickson and Mary E. Dickson (the "Grantor") to U.S. Bank Trust Company, National Association (the "Trustee") to secure payment and performance of certain obligations of Grantor to U.S. Bank National Association ND (the "Beneficiary"), including repayment of a promissory note dated June 20, 2001, in the principal amount of $15,000.00 (the "Note"). The Trust Deed was recorded on July 26, 2001, as Microfilm Document No. 2001325 in the official real property records of Union County, Oregon.

The legal description of the real property covered by the Trust Deed is as follows:

The East one-half of Lots numbered One (1), Two (2), and Three (3) in Block numbered Eighteen (18) of GRANDY'S ADDITION to the City of La Grande, Union County, Oregon, according to the recorded plat of said addition.

Commonly known as: 707 Grandy Avenue, La Grande, Oregon.

No action has been instituted to recover the obligation, or any part thereof, now remaining secured by the Trust Deed or, if such action has been instituted, such action has been dismissed except as permitted by ORS 86.735(4).

The default for which the foreclosure is made is Grantor's failure to pay when due the following sums: monthly payments in full of $188.08 owed under the Note beginning May 27, 2006, and on the 27th day of each month thereafter; late charges in the amount of $120.00 as of October 21, 2006, plus any late charges accruing thereafter; and expenses, costs, trustee fees and attorneys fees.

By reason of said default, U.S. Bank National Association ND, as beneficiary under the Trust Deed, has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by the Trust Deed immediately due and payable which sums are as follows: (a) the principal amount of $9,769.32 as of October 21, 2006, (b) accrued interest of $170.97 as of October 21, 2006, and interest accruing thereafter on the principal amount at the rate set forth in the Note until fully paid, (c) late charges in the amount of $120.00 as of October 21, 2006, plus any late charges accruing thereafter and any other expenses or fees, (d) amounts that U.S. Bank National Association ND has paid on or may hereinafter pay to protect the lien, including by way of illustration, but not limitation, taxes, assessments, interest on prior liens, and insurance premiums, and (e) costs and attorney and trustee fees incurred by U.S. Bank National Association ND in foreclosure, including the cost of a trustee's sale guarantee and any other environmental or appraisal report.

By reason of said default, U.S. Bank National Association ND, as beneficiary under the Trust Deed, and the Successor Trustee have elected to foreclose the trust deed by advertisement and sale pursuant to ORS 86.705 to ORS 86.795 and to sell the real property identified above to satisfy the obligation that is secured by the Trust Deed.

NOTICE IS HERBY GIVEN that the undersigned Successor Trustee or Successor Trustee's agent will, on April 11, 2007, at one o'clock (1:00) p.m., based on the standard of time established by ORS 187.110, just outside the main entrance of the Union County courthouse, 1008 K Avenue, La Grande, Oregon, sell for cash at public auction to the highest bidder the interest in said real property, which Grantor has or had power to convey at the time of the execution by Grantor of the Trust Deed, together with any interest that Grantor or the successors in interest to Grantor acquired after the execution of the Trust Deed, to satisfy the foregoing obligations thereby secured and the costs and expenses of sale.

NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that any person named in ORS 86.753 has the right, at any time prior to five days before the date last set for the sale, to have this foreclosure proceeding dismissed and the Trust Deed reinstated by payment to U.S. Bank National Association ND, as beneficiary under the Trust Deed, of the entire amount then due (other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred) and by curing any other default complained of herein that is capable of being cured by tendering the performance required under the obligation or Trust Deed and, in addition to paying said sums or tendering the performance necessary to cure the default, by paying all costs and expenses actually incurred in enforcing the obligation and Trust Deed, together with Trustee and attorney fees not exceeding the amounts provided by ORS 86.753.

On February 8, 2007, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published in the Federal Register (72 FR 6106-6139) a proposed rule to establish a "distinct population segment" of the gray wolf in the Northern Rocky Mountains, and to remove that population from protections under the Endangered Species Act. This publication also opened a 60-day public comment period, ending at close of business April 9, 2007

A PUBLIC INFORMATIONAL MEETING will be held Wednesday March 7, 2007, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Pendleton Red Lion Inn, 304 S.E. Nye Street, Pendleton, OR. A presentation on the proposal will be given at 3:00 and repeated at 4:00, with discussion and questions following.

ORAL TESTIMONY WILL BE ACCEPTED AT A PUBLIC HEARING between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the same location and date as the informational meeting (above). Oral comments may be limited in length if the number of participants is large.

BACKGROUND: The proposed distinct population segment encompasses the eastern one-third of Washington and Oregon, a small part of north-central Utah, and all of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. The Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolf population currently consists of more than 1,200 wolves in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. It is being proposed for this change in status because, in part, it has exceeded all of its recovery goals every year since 2002.

Generally, during this comment period, we are seeking information, data, and comments concerning the boundaries of the proposed distinct population segment and the status of gray wolf in the Northern Rocky Mountains. Specifically, we seek documented, biological data on the status and management of the Northern Rocky Mountain wolf population and its habitat.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: Informed and active public participation in the listing process is encouraged through public comment and public hearing opportunities and is vital to the decision to be made by the Fish and Wildlife Service.

WRITTEN COMMENTS and materials concerning this proposal must be received by close-of-business Monday, April 9, 2007. They may be submitted at the hearing, or sent by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or hand-delivered or mailed to USFWS, Wolf Delisting, 585 Shepard Way, Helena, MT 59601. Comments and materials received will be available for public inspection following the close of the comment period, by appointment, during normal business hours at the above address.
