UNION — Scotty Baker, of Union, does not always wear a wristwatch, which is ironic because Baker, 92, has a connection to one of the most intriguing and exhaustive time keeping projects in history.

Baker, who served as grand marshal of the Eastern Oregon Livestock Show parade on Friday, June 9, was asked several years ago to assist with the 10,000 Year Clock Project in Texas. The clock, which is being built with major assistance from Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, will be designed to keep time for the next 10,000 years. It is to be installed several hundred feet deep within a mountain in West Texas.
