The radio stations of Bicoastal Media are teaming with Northshore Medical Group to launch their annual campaign to help a Columbia Gorge family in need. “Wheels of Hope” will provide a deserving family lacking transportation a 2007 Honda Accord from Griffith Motors to help them meet their daily needs.

Community members can make nominations of friends and neighbors who are in need online at Gorgeradio.com.

A panel of judges made up of representatives from Bicoastal Media, Northshore Medical Group, and agencies involved in helping families will select the family to receive the vehicle, which will be awarded in mid-October.

In addition, this year’s recipient will be able to “Pay It Forward,“ as Bud Light will make a $3,000 donation in the recipient’s name to charity.

Watch for the Wheels of Hope vehicle display at various local events throughout the summer, including Families in the Park at Hood River’s Jackson Park, and the Klickitat and Wasco County fairs.

Along with Bicoastal Media, Northshore Medical Group and Griffith Motors, Wheels of Hope is also supported by Walmart, Bud Light, The Dalles Fruit Company, The Dalles Napa Auto Parts, A Kidz Dental Zone, NW Natural, Maupin Stoves & Spas, Oregon Equipment, Tacy’s Place, Windermere Real Estate, Infinite Graphix, Columbia Veterinary Hospital, and Crestline Construction.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
