The exclusive mem-
bers’ exhibit will run at the
museum through Jan. 10,
2016. It kicked off with an
Oct. 9 reception and panel
discussion with Lanker and
Rugg, moderated by art
historian Peg Brand.
The exhibit tour is man-
aged by Landau Travel-
ing Exhibitions out of Los
Angeles with support from
the James F. and Marion L.
Miller Foundation.
Rugg seemed quietly
pleased at the recognition
but declined to comment.
That’s not surprising com-
ing from the woman who
earlier told the Gazette, “I
never wanted to be noticed.

The less conspicuous, the
better I liked it.”
But Rugg is being no-
ticed now, in a book, and
an exhibit, that will for-
ever include her among
icons of the American West,
among the women who
were “tough by nature.”

Elks celebrate Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week, the
nation’s oldest and largest
drug prevention program,
brings millions of Ameri-
cans together in celebration
annually on October 23-31,
and the Heppner Elks is a
part of it.
By wearing red ribbons
and participating in com-
munity anti-drug events,
young people pledge to
live drug-free, as well as
pay tribute to DEA Spe-
cial Agent Enrique “Kiki”
Camarena. Camarena’s
murder in 1985 triggered
a national outcry against
the drug cartels. He was
kidnapped, tortured and
killed while successfully
investigating one of the
largest drug trafficking or-
ganizations in Mexico.
Teachers in elemen-
tary and secondary schools
banded together and wore
red ribbons as a symbol to
honor Camarena and his
fight against illegal drugs.
The ribbons also served to
bring drug prevention cam-
paigns and drug awareness
to schools.
Groups like the Elks
also have tried to keep
Camarena’s fight going
strong by initiating the
Red Ribbon campaign in
schools and through the
Elks National Drug Aware-
ness Program, which strives
to teach all children and
parents about the dangers of
illegal drug use and prevent
the abuse of legalized and
prescription drugs. It’s the
nation’s largest volunteer
drug awareness program,
relying on state, district and
lodge volunteers.
The Elks Drug Aware-
ness Program also honors
a law enforcement officer,
chosen from nominations
provided by state chairper-
sons, to receive the Enrique
S. Camarena Award. This
award is presented to a law
enforcement officer who
best exemplifies the quali-
ties of Agent Carnarena and
has gone above and beyond
his/her normal duties to
make their community a
better place to live.
In addition to the
officer receiving an award,
the lodge that nominates
the officer also receives
