Volunteers are being trained to prepare for, and respond to, disaster. At top, Sharon Thornberry practices a patient assessment on Dawn
Rasmussen at a Community Emergency Response Team training Jan. 17 at Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue. Mid-Columbia CERT will be
meeting monthly and providing trainings in the future. Above left, Andrew Johnson and Dean Ferrell stand for a photo after Ferrell sta-
bilized the pen “impaled” in Johnson’s arm during a training session. Ferrell and Johnson are coworkers at Cousins’ who were surprised
to see each other when they showed up to the volunteer training. Above right, Rob Torrey, training division chief of Mid-Columbia Fire
and Rescue (center), gives some tips to volunteers Jacob Powell (left) and Braiden Page (right). CERT trainings prepare volunteers to be
proactive and organized in a disaster.

SWC has three weeks
to get back in rhythm
Since Dec. 14, 2019, the
South Wasco County Lady
Mario Heredia of
Columbia Cascade Housing
Corporation was present-
ed a check for $5,000 by
Heather Wright, president
of the Mid-Columbia
Association of Realtors, at
the association’s January
meeting at the Best
Western, Hood River Inn in
Hood River.
The funds are to be
used for down payment
assistance for an individu-
al in the Gorge. The grant
was possible through the
HOME Foundation, ad-
ministered by the Oregon
Association of Realtors,
a nonprofit charity that
provides financial re-
sources to create, expand,
and encourage home
ownership opportunities
for Oregonians at or below
local median income.
The charity also promotes
awareness of affordable
housing issues by educating
Oregonians and their repre-
sentatives about the barriers
to home ownership and the
resources needed to increase
housing affordability.
The charity gives members
a way to give back to their
communities. “Far too many
people in today’s workforce
simply can’t afford the
American dream. We under-
stand that homes stabilize
families, and we want that
to be achievable for more
Oregonians,” said Wright in a
press release.
Redsides have struggled to
a 3-7 record, with their wins
coming against league foes
Ione/Arlington, Condon and
Sherman.
Even with this latest cold
stretch, they are third in
league, just one game behind
Dufur for second place.
Monday, SWC played in
the ninth of 10 non-league
games on the road at No.
1-ranked Crane Monday, and
the undefeated Mustangs
jumped out in front 25-1
through one period on their
way to a 66-21 victory.
For the Redsides (7-7
overall, 3-2 league), Destiny
Mora-Lopez rattled off 13
points, 10 in the second half,
Holly Miles tacked on four,
and the tandem of Sadie
McCoy and Hailey Ocacio
went for two points apiece.
In all, SWC sank eight field
goals, one 3-pointer, and
made 4 of 10 free throws, but
managed just one first-half
basket, a second-quarter
3-pointer by Mora-Lopez.
Crane (12-0) had five play-
ers eclipse double figures, led
by sophomore Kelsie Siegner,
who tallied 18 points, 15 in
the first half.
Riley Davis and Risa
Thompson scored 11 points
each, and both Dani Clark
and Shelie Doman pumped
in 10 points apiece for the
Mustangs, who totaled 30
field goals, four 3-pointers,
and made 2 of 7 free throws.
No. 25-ranked SWC hosts
Dufur at 6 p.m. Tuesday,
hosts Ione/Arlington at 6
p.m. on Jan. 31, and hits the
road to Echo for a game at 2
p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1.
