Boys Majors All Stars win first three games

Girls team wins two of first three games at state

MADRAS — The 11-12 boys Hood River All Stars have made quite an impression at this week’s District 5 tournament, winning their first three games en route to a semifinal matchup with Bend South.

After Monday’s 29-1 win over Sisters, the All Stars hoped to cruise into Wednesday’s championship game with Deschutes.

Tuesday’s results were not available at press time, but if Hood River got past Bend South, they would play Deschutes today at 9 a.m.

Monday’s game was a shocker, even for the local kids. Jeremy Rowley socked three over-the-fence homeruns and recorded nine RBI’s in the first inning alone.

Tyler Williams also had a big first inning, going 4-4, while Junior Alaniz hit a two-run homerun. Hood River used four different pitchers to close out Sisters in four innings.

Before Monday’s mayhem, the All Stars had taken down Willow Creek (Heppner), 9-7, on Saturday, and Hermiston, 5-0 on Sunday.

Alaniz (pictured above) was the star in both games, hitting a grand slam homerun in game one and pitching a three-hit shutout in game two. He also helped his own cause in that game with two RBIs.

Other offensive highlights came from Rowley, who hit a two-run homerun in game one, and Alex Ing, who recorded an RBI basehit in game two.

Dylan Bauld pitched four strong innings against Willow Creek, and was backed up by outstanding defense by Taylor Gray, Taylor Sanders and Williams.

A complete district wrap-up of the 11-12 boys Hood River All Stars will appear in the July 19 edition.


Meanwhile, the 11-12 girls District 5 champions from Hood River have been playing at the state tournament in Klamath Falls.

After losing their first game, 1-0 in eight innings on Saturday, the girls bounced back to take the next two games on Sunday and Monday.

Powered by over-the-fence homeruns from Mireya Muñoz and Eryn Jacobson, Hood River defeated Centennial 10-2 on Sunday, before taking down Roseburg 5-2 on Monday.

The All Stars were scheduled to take on District 7 champ, Ambrose-Leslie, on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213.
