The Banks Post is an online and print newspaper that covers news, events, sports, culture, and opinion in the communities of Banks, Buxton, Manning, Roy, Hayward, Timber and more. Our coverage area extends from Highway 47 outside of Forest Grove, north to encompass all of Banks almost to North Plains, then up through the forest and farms to the edge of Columbia County, then west past the Timber Junction on Highway 26, looping back to include the town of Timber, with the mountain ridge between Hayward and the Gales Creek Valley roughly forming our southern boundary.
