What surprises you about Hermiston?
Lately, how big it’s grown. I was gone for four years,

25 YEARS AGO
OCT. 12, 1993
A 15-year-old Hermiston male has been charged
with firing the weapon in the Oct. 4 drive-by shooting
at the Hermiston Plaza.
The boy faces reckless endangerment, criminal
mischief and firearms charges. More charges may fol-
low. Hermiston Police Chief Grant Asher said the sus-
pect will likely be lodged in Juvenile Hall in Pendleton.
Hermiston Police Detective Panfilo Rios said the shoot-
ing was not directly gang-related, but that the participants
in the shooting are “definitely” gang-affiliated.
Rios said the suspect was with two other juveniles and
an adult in a van when the weapon — a Tech-9, a 9 mm
semi-automatic pistol similar to an Uzi — was produced.
When the van came to the Highland Avenue entrance to
the plaza, the suspect fired three to 10 shots into a crowd
of high school students in front of a store. Several mem-
bers of a rival gang were in the crowd, but Rios said there
were other motives involved.
• What really happened last week at Hermiston High
Hermiston High School Principal Diana Cutsforth has
sent two letters to parents of high school students with
information regarding recent incidents of high school vio-
lence in Hermiston in an attempt to dispel rumors spread-
ing throughout the community. Calm has returned to the
high school, she said, after a turbulent week.

“You’d have to see it to believe it,” says Ron Hudson,
well-known area fertilizer dealer and RCA contestant. “...
It’s true, I actually saw a man shoot two deer with one
Hudson goes on to say that he was hunting with a
group of ardent hunters out of Pendleton in the Ritter area
last Saturday, Oct. 5 when they encountered a herd of
deer approximately 400 yards from where the party first
entered the breaks of the John Day River. Under Hudson’s
direction his group began an immediate stalk of the deer
and were within 200 yards when a shot came from their
left. As it turned out, another group of hunters were con-
verging on the same herd of deer, with neither party aware
of the other’s presence.
Upon examination of the area, two buck deer were
found dead only three feet apart, yet only one shot had
been fired! Apparently fragments of the bullet emerging
from the neck of the first deer entered the skull of the sec-
ond deer with enough force to bring it down also.

The question as to how far ducks will fly in search of
warmer climate during the winter months seems to have
found some kind of answer. Just recently Myrnie “Tiny”
Caldwell of the Pheasant Cafe received a letter from Pat
Hatch, U.S.N. Seabees, who is stationed on one of the
islands in the South Pacific area. Pat stated that they had
just killed a duck and to their amazement found that the
bird was branded “Idaho-1041.”
Caldwell has been instructed to write to Hatch stat-
ing to be on the lookout for some Oregon ducks who will
probably also fly long distances to escape the bombard-
ment which will be loosed here Friday morning when
duck season opens.
• The annual hunting season for pheasants opens in
Umatilla County Saturday morning one half hour before
sunrise. Although the same enthusiasm has been man-
ifested by loyal nimrods as in past years, that spirit has
been considerably dampened by the lack of shells and
gasoline. Some hunters, with considerable foresight, have
several boxes of shotgun shells on hand but others will
have to be content with a box or less. In either case there
will be less shooting and more careful aiming this year.

In the Herald of Sept. 21, we gave the text of a letter
of approval to President Wilson, which was signed by 126
of Hermiston’s citizens before being mailed. It was sent
to the Secretary of the Interior Franklin K. Lane with the
request he hand it to the president. In response the follow-
ing communication has been received from Washington:
My dear Mr. Reihl: I have received through the cour-
tesy of Secretary Lane a very gratifying resolution signed
by yourself and many other citizens of Hermiston, in
approval of my rejection of a recent peace conference pro-
posed by Austria. May I not express to you, and through
you your fellow citizens who joined with you in the res-
olutions, my very warm and grateful appreciation? Sin-
cerely yours, Woodrow Wilson
Business workshop is Oct. 25
A business education training that
focuses on workplace ethics is com-
ing to Boardman.
“Bring Your ‘A’ Game” was devel-
oped with the needs of educators and
workforce development professionals
in mind. Presented by Josh Davies,
CEO of The Center for Work Ethic
Development, the session is interac-
tive and promises to provide a lasting
impact. Davies was named by Train-
ing Magazine as one of the top 10
trainers under 40 in America.
The workshop is Thursday, Oct.
25 from 8 a.m. to noon at the SAGE
Center, 101 Olson Road, Boardman.
The cost is $300 per business (for
up to three participants) or $150 per
business under 10 employees (for two
people). A catered lunch is available
for an additional $15 fee.
For more information or to regis-
ter, call the Boardman Chamber of
Commerce at 541-481-3014 or visit
The celebration continues daily
from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. through Sat-
urday. The cafe is at 81027 N. High-
way 395, Hermiston. The biggest dis-
count, said owner Cathy Stolz, is an
ala cart New York steak for $4.80.
Established in 1970 by Dorothy
(Stolz’s mother) and Duane Beason,
the Chuckwagon Cafe has been at its
current location since 1979. Prior to
that it operated from the building that
now houses The Nickel. The cafe’s
first location, which burned in 1972,
was a small drive-in/diner on High-
way 395 where Motel 6 now resides.
The cafe supports local fundrais-
ing projects that benefit area students.
In addition to actively participating
in Hermiston’s annual Community
Fellowship Dinners each Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas, Stolz is proud to
honor veterans each year on Veterans
Day with a free SOS lunch.
