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!

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
