The Recovering Economy... 2010 Hood River and Wasco County Agriculture Sales Rise
I was so interested to read in the Hood River News last week that Hood River and Wasco County agriculture sales for 2010 rose over 2009's. I'm going to take it as another positive sign that the weak economy is rebounding and our region is heading for a stronger future.
The two counties together earned a total of $177.3 million in gross sales in 2010, a healthy jump up from the $149.4 million the two counties earned in gross sales in 2009. Most agriculture sales throughout the state of … (1 comments)

The event will be held Saturday, April 2nd at 6 p.m. at the Mt. Hood … (3 comments)

It's Wy'east Middle School Outdoor School
Thursday night I attended a parents' meeting at Wy'east for Outdoor School which will be held for all 6th graders in May. Before the meeting, I hadn't heard about it and was so excited at all I learned. The students will be going for two and a half days and two nights to the Brooks Memorial Environmental Learning Center where they will study animal, plant and stream analysis as part of their required curriculum. It's an incredible opportunity to experience the environment hands-on, unlike anything they could experience at school. And it's all in a fun, camp-like setting in … (0 comments)

Hood River Library Gets a Giant Boost
This is what I blogged in early January: On July 1, 2010, the Hood River County Libary was closed indefinitely when a ballot measure to fund the library failed. But in true Hood River style, the community banded together and got a new measure placed on the November, 2010 ballot and it passed. Of course, the measure provides funds from property taxes, which won't be available until November, 2011. Our stalwart community wasn't about to let that little detail hinder it! Through the tireless work of so many people, the library will be opening on … (0 comments)

Don't Forget It's Daylight Savings Time Tonight!
Spring Forward! Daylight Savings officially starts tomorrow morning at 2:00 a.m., when clocks are changed forward one hour. Better yet, set your clocks ahead an hour before you go to sleep tonight. The time change means that mornings will be darker, but evenings will stay light longer.
Daylight Savings is observed throughout most of North America, with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona. Most of Europe and Eastern Europe observes Daylight Savings, as do limited parts in South America, Australia and Africa.
The photo was taken by a local photographer.  We acquired it to use for … (5 comments)

You'll Fall Right Into Love With This Guy
Champ is a 12 year old American Eskimo, neutered male dog. His owners need to travel and felt Champ was no longer getting the attention he deserves. Champ has been an outdoor dog most of his life, but he's ready to move inside! He's good with the family cats and other little dogs, but not so friendly to possums and raccoons and sometimes challenges new big dogs. Although he's dealing with typical old age related issues (cataracts, lumps and bumps, and some arthritis in his hips), he is good spirits and, per his … (5 comments)

2011 Oregon Middle School Wrestling Regionals
We've mentioned in previous blogs, that our sixth grade son joined the WyEast Middle School Wrestling Team this year. I had never seen an actual wrestling match before Sam's first and I have to admit, it left me a little light-headed and dazed. Wow, was it intense! It's been an incredible learning experience for him, not only in learning the details of wrestling, but also (hopefully) he better understands diligence, commitment, team work and friendship. These are all values that we hope will serve him well through life. That's a major reason to play sports... life lessons.
This weekend his team … (0 comments)

The official message went out this morning at 5:10 a.m. that school in Hood River County was cancelled for the day.
