At the Sheriff C.J.D. Bauman Appreciation Day dinner
last Sunday, it seems that I was hearing stories of this hero's
good deeds on every side. The more than 200 who attended
wanted to exchange many happy memories of Clarence's
long tenure as the county's "greatest sheriff."
What a week this is for politicians to visit our area.
Today, Oregon Sen. Bob Packwood will talk with a group at
lunch at the West of Willow; tomorrow, Friday, our U.S. Rep.
Al Ullman also will be here to meet with folks at lunch at the
West of Willow. On next Sunday, August 12, five northeastern
Oregon counties will host Gov. Victor Atiyeh along with Dr.
Robert Voy, new chairman of the Oregon Republican Party
and State Reps. Jack Duff, Bill Bellamy and Bob Brogoitti at
Emigrant Springs State Park.
Today is sort of what may be a "Do or Die" day for
voting on our hospital budget levy. To many of us this seems
such an urgent matter. We can't imagine living here without
the hospital. We hope that it will be continuing in a more
effective manner, with updated equipment, with an enlarged
staff, with more space. We know the matter of its growth and
improvement will be costly, but we don't believe there is
a more worthy community investment.
Last Saturday Helen Currin accompanied me to Yakima
where we met my oldest grandson, Scott Haberlach, a very
blond 11-year-old, and his mother and stepfather. Before our
noon meeting, we had several hours to look around town. We
strolled through the spacious downtown Yakima Mall, made
a quick stop at a Saturday yard sale, and were interested in
the half dozen old-time autos we noticed on the streets (there
must have been an historic car collectors' gathering going on
there.) After lunch we loaded Scott and his suitcases and his
bicycle and headed for Heppner. We stopped at two
fruit stands and bought a few potatoes, tomatoes, several
melons and a few onions but didn't find the peaches that
Helen wanted. Much of the wheat harvest seems to be over
and the fruit picking is moving along in the fertile Yakima
We learned at first hand that most of the gas stations are
closed in Washington on Sunday. We only spotted one open in
Yakima and another in Prosser. We wondered how folks
could manage with so few stations functioning? After we
crossed back into Oregon we weren't counting, but our state
seems better serviced than our neighboring state to the
This is the week that Jane Rawlins, Heppner High
English Department head, leads her annual expedition to the
Shakespearean Festival at Ashland. I have so enjoyed going
along with the group in years past. This year I had a taste of
Shakespearean history at Stratford-on-Avon, had a look
about Ashland in July, and am busy now trying to be a
"working grandmother". I am thinking of the great plays in
Ashland that I am missing and often wish I were able to
be two places at once, such as, in Heppner and at Ashland.
Next week, for Friday, August 17, I have noted on my
calendar "take exhibits to the Fair." If everyone
participates, then everyone really enjoys our good Morrow
County Fair. By this time, hopefully, you will have studied
the fair booklet and have perhaps met the new
Secretary-Treasurer Nancy Bruch. You must appreciate the
time and effort your neighbors, Fair and Rodeo Board
members Virginia Grieb, Paul Hisler, Floyd Jones, Ron
Currin and Pete Richards, contribute.
. The Fair Committee members are: Harold Peck, Cliff
Williams, Marvin Clarkson, Gary Grieb, Ruth McCabe,
Mildred Rauch, Phyllis Piper, Virginia Peck, Bill
Helphenstine and Delpha Jones. They look for your
participation and welcome your comments.
You should understand that on the four days that
admission is being charged, August 18, 19, 20 and 21, you may
enter by wearing a season button ($2.50) or by paying 75
cents each day. Pre-schoolers are to be admitted free; 4-H
and FFA members will have special passes, and Senior
Citizens may obtain admission passes at the Heppner
Neighborhood Center.
Separate prices are to be charged for Family Fun Night
(5 p.m. until midnight, Saturday, August 18) and for the
Rodeo shows and dances. Rodeos are set for Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, August 24, 25 and 26, with the big Main
Street Parade coming at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 25.
It always seems like this county is more united at Fair
and Rodeo time than at most other times of the year. It is
such a good time to have visitors and to really become
acquainted with new people and with older residents one does
not see every day.
