Old West Revisited
The Pendleton Round-Up,
sometimes referred to as the
"Grand Daddy" of rodeos in
the western United States, once
again has the same familiar
The days of the old West
were relived in the northeast
ern corner of Oregon in Pen
dleton, where each year tour
ists come by the thousands to
see an action-packed week full
of all sorts of activities. The big
attraction is always the cow
boys who come to Pendleton
from all parts of the country
each year to compete for the
prize money that ranges in the
thousands of dollars. Some of
the best rodeo stock, from the
top stock producers in the country, is assembled to give the cow
boys all they can handle. Some of the bulls have never been ridden
the required eight seconds so far this year. The top ropers are on
hand to match skills in the calf roping and steer roping events. The
nation's best bull riders, such as Lane Frost, Ted Neuce and others
such as Lewis Fields and Clint Johnson, were also on hand. Many
names ring a familiar bell, such as Larry Mahan, Doug Brown,
Casey Tibbs and Jim Shoulders, but as time passes, new names
blossom to fill the spot light.
Another highlight of the Round-Up is the famous Happy
Canyon Pageant which is always a sell-out. Year after year, Happy
Canyon is one of the most popular events and a top attraction
which makes the Pendleton Round-Up so unique. The Westward
Ho Parade is one of the largest demotorized parades in the coun
try. All floats are drawn by animals or pepole on foot and winds its
' way through the streets of Pendleton. Tom McCall, Bob Sfraub
and Vic Atiyeh, all past governors of Oregon, have been Grand
Marshalls of the parade.
The Teepee Village, on Round-Up grounds, is another popular
place where tourists' cameras can be heard clicking as they get
photos of tiny tots donned in Indian regalia. The Teepee Village
draws tribes from all parts of the northwest each year. Tribes such
as the Nez Perce, Cayuse, Umatilla, Blackfeet, Kootanai, Kalispel,
Spokane, Colville, Shoshone-Bannock, Wasco, Yakima and Warm
Springs all congregate to share good times and friendship. The
tribes all put on their traditional dance outfits for the spectators in
the area during the rodeo performance. Each year there is an
Indian beauty contest which is a very difficult task for the judges to
decide who is the most beautiful. In between events there is also the
excitement on the track of the Indian Buck race, the Indian Squaw
race. Bareback Relay race, a Free-For-All race, a Baton race and
the rough Wild Horse race.
This is just part of what happens at the Pendleton Round-Up.
For some events that take place across the country, some people
say, "If you've seen one, you've seen um all." But, if you've been to
the Pendleton Round-Up once, you'll want to return once again
and again and again...
To the Editor,
I would like to share some infor
mation with our community and to
also commend two men who have
committed a lot of their personal
time and efforts to promote a com
munity service.
We have in our midst an active
volunteer group that is composed
of adults and young people who
have made the commitment to form
the Warm Springs Search And Res
cue All Volunteer Group.
The youth of this group are
Senior and Junior cadets that have
taken time out of their busy sche
dules to learn about safety, track
ing, outdoor survival skills, rescue
methods, search patterns, rappell
ing and much more. These people
have made the choice to be involved
in a community serve and to pursue
a positive alternative to the drug
problem that is prevalent in our
country. I am impressed that they
have the strength of will to say
"NO" to drugs and peer pressure
for negative activities.
These young people are an asset
to our community and I'm sure
their support group is proud of
them. The people who form the
support structure for the cadets are
the parents, relatives and other
interested community people. The
Substance abuse adultery
interest shown by the adult members
and other supporters will be an
ongoing incentive for the cadets to
continue in their training, practice
and concern for their community.
Finally, at the core of this group
are the two men who have taken
Search and Rescue from a back
burner incidental status to a fully
active, involved project for the
benefit of our community, our
youth, and, in emergency situa
tions, our peace of mind. The guid
ing force and instructors of the
Warm Springs Search and Rescue
All Volunteer Group are Vinson
Macy and Keith Baker.
In the beginning, Vinson and
Keith promoted and enhanced
Search and Rescue on their own
time and out of their own pockets.
As the idea and interest grew, they
inspired the Search and Rescue
volunteer project. Now, the whole
group functions basically on their
own time and out of their own
pockets. But the key is that it is a
group with a united goal to provide
a knowledgeable, trained service to
our community.
For their efforts, energy and
interest, Vinson and Keith deserve
recognition and support for this
Thank you, Vinson and Keith,
for making W.S. S.A.R. A.V.G. a
reality for our community and a
future for our youth. You are truly
Marcia A. Macy
To the Editor,
I want to talk about a new twist
to a very old act. The act is to
commit adultery. By definition
adultery is sexual relations between
two persons, either of whom is
married to another.
To be committed, to trust some
one in a relationship is the flower
bed for love to grow. To be married
is to be at the greatest level for the
greatest of love to pour out of a
relationship. Adultery dishonors
this love. It destroys the trust and
ruins a good llower bed. Without
having gone to court, divorce has
come into a couple's life.
In Warm Springs there is the
other woman, the other man. But
now the other woman or man is not '
human. The shifting of commit
ment in the act of adultery now
goes to alcohol, cocaine, grass,
pills', heroin. Yes, there is no physi
cal sex with this partner, but the
Appreciation expressed
To all Delia's friends and family
Words cannot express the grati
tude and appreciation felt by our
family in our hour of need. All the
thanks in the world could not ex
press our gratitude to those who
came to help and share in the final
wishes of our mother.
We will miss Mom forever. We
hope her zest for life will serve as an
inspiration to all who loved her.
The Estimo Family
Love forever,

relationship no longer has their
mate in life, but the drugs and

When does it start? It begins
