HRV track gets best of TDW in dual meet

April 16, 2011


Lupe Santillan has a good reason for having such a big grin as she clears the final hurdle in the 100-meter hurdles Tuesday afternoon –– she finished first in the event with a time of 18.79 seconds.

It feels like the spring track season has just started, and yet in many ways it's almost over.

The Hood River Valley track team hosted its only home meet of the season Tuesday and beat The Dalles-Wahtonka Eagle-Indians on both sides of the team scores.

The HRV boys won 79-54 and the girls won 102-33.

The Eagles now head down the home stretch with just four varsity events remaining until the district meet in The Dalles May 12-13.

They saw continued improvement and exciting finishes in several events during their win over the Eagle-Indians Tuesday.

In the shot put Angie Titus knocked off state title favorite Leah Wilson by two inches, besting her with a throw of 38-3.50 to 38-1.50.

The throw was a season best by 4 feet for Titus.

In the 4x400-meter relay, HRV's Ian McNaughton was neck-and-neck with TDW's Colton Rowland in the final 100 meters before McNaughton got the edge in the final 10 meters and then collapsed to the ground to catch his breath after crossing the finish line.

Yonny Castillo pulled off an impressive triple-feat in winning the 3,000 and 1,500 meter runs and helping the HRV 4x400 team to a victory.

Tracy Mok took first place in the javelin, getting a season best by over 8 feet with a throw of 108-04.

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.
