North Lincoln Firefighter Expected to Make Full Recovery
Miller’s vehicle collided with a delivery truck on Thursday morning, April 11th at approximately 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 22 and Perrydale Road in Dallas. Miller was heading to Lincoln City to work a shift when the accident occurred.
Dallas Fire & Rescue responded to the incident and extricated Miller from his car and transported him to Salem Hospital. Miller was initially placed in intensive care with serious head and chest injuries following the crash.
Miller, 27, started working for North Lincoln Fire & Rescue (NLFR) six months ago. “It was his dream job” said Chief Rob Dahlman, who with dozens of other NLFR firefighters visited Miller during his hospital stay.
The family said it is overwhelmed by the community’s support and prayers. “I have been so blessed by all the love and support of family and friends,” Miller said Sunday.

Most are classical composers, but the collection includes a good number of jazz, movie scores, light opera, and modern discs and some classic radio and comedy like the Goon Show, Stan Friedman, Tom Lehrer, and more.

Doug Boysen President & CEO Samaritan Health Services
Doug Boysen, President and CEO of Samaritan Health Services, recently received the “Grassroots Champion” award from the American Hospital Association (AHA).
Each year, one health care leader from each state is chosen as an AHA Grassroots Champion based on that leader’s “work over the previous year to effectively deliver the hospital message, help broaden the base of community support and advocate tirelessly on behalf of patients, hospitals and communities.
Boysen was recommended for the national honor by the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.
In a letter announcing Boysen as the award recipient from Oregon, Pollack said Boysen earned this special recognition through his dedication to the hospital mission, on both the local and the national level. “I appreciate this recognition, particularly because it is connected to our work to communicate the importance of our mission,” Boysen said. “It is central to all we do at Samaritan and I commend our employees for their efforts every day to demonstrate our mission through their work.”
Boysen became Samaritan’s President and CEO in January 2018, succeeding long-time President Larry Mullins. Since that time, Boysen has worked to increase awareness of Samaritan’s mission of “Building Healthier Communities Together” through its efforts in four strategic areas: quality and service excellence, employee engagement, community partnerships, and sustainability.
