Ducks Unlimited event raises $17,000
lmost 100 people of all ages flocked to the
Wallowa County Ducks Unlimited banquet
and fundraiser at Cloverleaf Hall Feb. 10.
With plenty of fun activities for the “Greenwings”
(children 1-16), the annual event is a family favor-
ite, and was on-track to raise more than $17,000,
according to John Stanfield, Regional Director for
Oregon and Hawaii.
“This grass-roots fundraising and support
helps us raise around 10 times as much from foun-
dations and other large matching grants,” he said.
Most Ducks Unlimited projects protect wet-
lands and waters in major migratory routes and
breeding grounds, including Ladd Marsh near La
Grande and Balock Slough north of Baker City.
The LaVigne Family received the Lifetime
Sponsors Gratitude award. And Jordyn Rahn, 7,
won the Greenwings Junior Duck-Caller contest.
“It was the first-time I ever tried calling ducks,”
she said. “It was a lot of fun!”

But this year, I resent
the glaring unfairness in
tax-paying, when I think of
President Donald Trump,
who has never served our
country in any capacity. A
person who has used the
loophole of a physical ail-
ment, a bone spur, to avoid
the military, and who uses
tax loopholes to avoid pay-
As far as anyone knows,
he has probably never paid
his fair share of taxes, and I
resent it. I doubt that any one
of us in Wallowa County has
been able to get away with
such flagrant, if not criminal,
I know it is not politically
correct to criticize our Pres-
ident, but for the first time,
I really resent paying taxes
while this rich guy is taking
us all for suckers.

Born and raised in New York City by not exactly nature-loving parents, Rob isn’t sure
how he ended up doing conservation work. His path brought him to Wallowa County,
spending over 10 years leading an ecological monitoring and research program
for the Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie Initiative. In 2016, Rob’s wanderlust got the
better of him and he ﬂew west to work as a restoration ecologist at Midway Atoll
National Wildlife Refuge in the Paciﬁc Islands.
