PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) – One of Prineville’s decades-old visual icons – those big white letters ‘CC’ emblazoned on the hill above Crook County High School – got one of its periodic spruce-ups, thanks to Crook County Commissioner Seth Crawford and NJROTC members who reached out to lend their helping hands.

The letters, which are on private property, were first put in place probably in the 1940s or ‘50s, Crawford said.

“It used to be managed by the schools, but the owner of the property didn’t want the liability of a bunch of people up there,” Crawford said Monday. “Before it was just willy-nilly, whatever. I went to them and said, ‘Can I help you guys manage it?’ ‘Sure.’

A few years ago, Blaine Noland, owner of a construction and painting firm, offered his time to help clean up and make the letters look new again.

This year, he said, the Naval JROTC students “reached out to me and offered to help me,” Crawford said. So the spent two or three hours helping spray the area for weeds, and are going to assist in painting it this summer.

“They did a good job,” Crawford said.
