The Heppner High School football team decided to pull and
bag the puncture vine growing like crazy on Morgan Street
near the high school. The youth did this immediately following
their morning practice recently. It took about an hour for four
coaches, two managers and 27 players to eradicate the weed
along the road. Above: Wyatt Steagall, Jorden Sweeney and
Colby Currin bag a vine, taking care not to scatter the pesky

Depression is one of
the most prevalent mental
health problems in adoles-
cence. Risk factors for ado-
lescent depression include
low self-esteem and social
support, negative body im-
age and cognitive style, and
ineffective coping.
Approximately 10–15
percent of adolescents will
experience a major depres-
sive episode by age 18,
which affects many areas
of a child’s life, including
education and relationships.
A major depressive episode
is identified when a person
has had at least five of the
following nine symptoms
nearly every day in the
same two-week period. At
least one of the symptoms
must be a depressed mood
or loss of interest or plea-
sure in daily activities.

of the day;
-Markedly diminished

TGM Program Advisory
Committee. “This round
of TGM grants provides
more communities across
the state with the assistance
they need to accomplish
these important planning
processes. The TGM pro-
gram highlights the suc-
cesses Oregon communities
can achieve when they can
leverage resources from
state and federal partners to
complete local planning.”
For this year’s fund-
ing cycle, 39 applications
requested $5.1 million.
Recipients will work with
staff to develop each proj-
ect, including final award
amounts based on the
scope of each grant. Award
amounts are expected to
range between $75,000 and
Awards will be used
as updating the city of Hep-

ing a coordinated land use
and transportation plan,
which the city of Keizer
will be doing to help guide
development in several
neighborhoods around the
city. Grants also support
developing public transit
plans—that’s how Rogue
Valley Transit District will
use its award.
In addition to plan-
ning grants, the program
offers local governments
other resources, including
education and outreach
workshops, speakers and
publications; code assis-

when he dove over right
tackle from the 1-yard line
with 2:40 remaining.
The West had one last
drive to attempt the winning
score, but Irrigon’s Fredy
Vera intercepted West quar-
terback Rob Lohman’s
(Scappoose) pass with 1:33
left to seal the win.
In a game in which
the defenses had the upper
hand, the West opened the
scoring in the first quarter.
Anthony Johnson
(Scio) scored on a 1-yard
run capping a 15-play, 70-
yard drive.
The score remained 6-0
West until the first play of
the second quarter.
That’s when Mazama’s
Curtis Anderson picked off
a Lohman pass at the East
10 and raced untouched 90
yards for the touchdown.
Cranford’s conversion
kick gave the East a 7-6
edge with 11:46 left in the
first half.
The West regained a
12-6 advantage midway
through the third quarter
when Lohman hooked up
with Scappoose teammate
Brennen McNabb on a 63-
yard scoring aerial.
On the play, McNabb
got behind the East de-
fender and Lohman hit
him in stride for the score.
McNabb stepped out of a
tackle attempt near the East
20 before scoring.
