Track teams head into home stretch

With just a few weeks before league meets, Eagles, Hawks turn in solid efforts

Hood River Valley hosted a six-team meet at Henderson Stadium Tuesday, with the main focus being on HRV and Columbia River Conference rival The Dalles-Wahtonka, but with smaller schools Columbia, Dufur, Klickitat and Horizon Christian also getting a chance to show their stuff in open classification competitions.

The Eagles largely dominated the field, winning eight events on the girls side and seven on the boys side.

Milo Herman had a hand in winning three events for the Eagle boys, winning the 100 meters in a time of 11.25, the 200 meters in a time of 23.24 and leading off in the 4x100 relay team (which also included Cesar Rodriguez, Erik Gutierrez and Connor Normand) which won in a time of 44.19.

For the Eagle girls, Jestena Mattson, Emily Thompson and Zoe Peterson all were in two winning events, with all three taking part in the winning 4x100 meter relay team (along with Anna Schlosser) and Thompson winning the 400 meter, Peterson the pole vault and Mattson the high jump.

Other HRV girls winners included the 4x400 relay team of Caitlyn Fick, Frida Mata, Lydia Gildehaus and Kailee McGee, Kenzie Yoshimura in the triple jump and Danae Burck in the 800 meters.

Other winners for the HRV boys included the 4x400 relay team of Chase Young, Gutierrez, Alec Wiltz and Jeremy Fischer, Eli Fults in the shot put, Patrick Crompton in the high jump and Milo Herman in the triple jump.

Horizon Christian also did well, competing in its third meet as a first-year team. Gabe Holste won the long jump for the Horizon boys and finished second in the triple jump while Hannah Kempf finished first in the 200 meters and the 4x100 relay team of Brooke Serdar, Alyssa Goodwin, Miriam Starrett and Kempf finished second to HRV.

The Eagles were at the David Douglas Invitational Friday before heading to the Dean Nice Invitational in Gresham next Friday.

The Hawks are at the Bowerman Invitational in Condon today before travelling to the Big Sky Invitational in Arlington next weekend.

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. The county also reminds residents to Get a Kit, Make A Plan to connect your family if separated, and Stay Informed. See to opt-in for citizen alerts. Enlarge
