Singer, actor and television personality Jimmie Rodgers was back in his hometown of Camas on Friday to take part in the dedication of a street being named in his honor. Jimmie Rodgers Avenue is the new honorary street name for Northwest 10th Avenue in the Forest Home neighborhood, where Rodgers lived from from 1939 to 1957. Rodgers, who turns 80 years old next week, was greeted by dozens of friends, family and fans who turned out for the event. On Saturday, Rodgers will be at the Ballard and Call Fine Art Gallery in downtown Camas, where he will sign copies of his book, "Dancing on the Moon," from noon until sundown. Look for an article and additional photos from today's event in the Sept. 17 print edition of the Post-Record.
