Supply, 3 Fingers vie for Industrial Crown

The Monday night Industrial league is finishing up its own version of March Mayhem with bracket matches at Hood River’s Legendary Orchard Lanes to decide its champion. Last week, the final four teams in the league met. Winning and making the finals and who will fight it out this week for the championship of the Industrial league were Hood River Supply and 3 Fingers Deep. The final four matches saw Hood River Supply swamping Buntings, 24 to 6, due to excellent bowling from Carl Casey, who fired a 244 game and 643 series and Jan Halstead who notched a solid 614 set; 3 Fingers Deep got by Randy’s Painting, 18.5 to 11.5, but that was a lot closer match than it looked on paper because Randy’s Painting barely lost total pins in the match by a razor-thin margin of only six pins!

In other league action, the spry Cripples team took the second half of the Thursday afternoon Lads & Lassies. The Cripples just nipped The 3 Pugs by one point to take the glory. Bowling for The Cripples were Kay and Dave Pratt and Linda and Jim Green. The Lads & Lassies prefer not to have a season-ending roll-off to determine an overall league champion — instead they are content with winners of each half. So, The Cripples join 2 Lads and a Lassie who won the first half. Bowling for 2 Lads and a Lassie were LaDeanna Ritenour, Kim McCartney and Len Allen. Congratulations to the co-champs!

The star bowler last week was Aileen Hopkins. Aileen was 111 pins over her average in the Tuesday morning ladies Workshirkers league. That performance was tops last week, Aileen bowled the most pins over her average than everybody else in league action. Great bowling everybody!

Team of the Week:

Greg McDaniel (12), 730

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 www.co.hood-river.or.us to opt-in for citizen alerts. Enlarge
