Raiders run past Eagle boys

Reynolds dominates HRV in fourth quarter


Ryan Wheat leans around Reynolds defender Colin Walsh to find an open passing lane during the first half of HRV’s loss to Reynolds Tuesday night.

This time no rally was coming; no chance to get back in the game.

The Reynolds Raiders withstood everything the Hood River Valley boys basketball team could throw at it Tuesday night and dominated the Eagles to close out the game and win 62-40 at Vannet Court.

The Raiders never let the Eagles get within single digits after the opening moments of the game and matched HRV shot-for-shot in a flurry of scoring to start the second quarter.

The only time the Eagles got close was at the start of the third quarter when Justin Schultz hit a pair of three-pointers and blocked a Reynolds lay-up attempt. That sparked a 10-2 HRV run that saw HRV get within 42-30.

That would be as close as HRV got, though, as Reynolds then when on a 9-0 run to retake complete command of the game.

Chris Dirks was the only Eagle in double figures with 14 points, while Justin Schultz added nine and Torey Schmidt eight for HRV.

The Eagles play at the Silverton Classic Tuesday and Wednesday before opening league play at Hermiston Jan. 7.

At St. Helens Tuesday night the HRV girls bounced back from two losses at a tournament in Forest Grove to dominate the Lions 59-21.

The Eagles piled on the Lions in the second half, scoring 40 points to 13 by St. Helens.

Angie Titus scored 15 points to lead HRV while Jaci Bryant had 10 and Brielle Perron added nine. Titus also had six steals.

The HRV girls JV team beat St. Helens 53-29 with 10 points from Natalia Ames and seven from Amanda McCafferty.

HRV plays at the Gresham Holiday Tournament Monday through Wednesday.

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.
