CODY VOORHEES HH FILE PHOTOS Mechanic, Scott’s Cycle and Sports When and why did you move to Hermiston? I was born and raised here. I’ve lived in Boise and Portland, but what drew me back was having friends and family around here. What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston? Hale’s What do you like to do in your spare time? Biking, camping, four-wheeling, and other outdoor activities What surprises you about Hermiston? Lately, how big it’s grown. I was gone for four years, and in just that amount of time, it’s changed quite a bit. All kinds of new businesses and projects — it seems like there’s a lot more going on than when I was younger. What was the last book you read? I’m reading “Heir to the Dragon” by Robert N. Charrette. What app or website do you use most? Probably Reddit If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Japan. My buddy in Portland lived there, and hear- ing him talk about it makes me interested. Being interested in cars, there’s all kinds of stuff I’d like to see with car culture and daily life. What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you? I can’t think of anything. What is one of your goals for the next 12 months? Do more trips and more out-of-town fun stuff. I didn’t go camping at all this year, so just get out more. What is your proudest accomplishment? Getting my Associate’s Degree 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 School? 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. 50 YEARS AGO Printed on recycled newsprint ● VOLUME 112 NUMBER 40 Jade McDowell | Reporter • firstname.lastname@example.org • 541-564-4536 Jayati Ramakrishnan | Reporter • email@example.com • 541-564-4534 Tammy Malgesini | Community Editor • firstname.lastname@example.org • 541-564-4539 Annie Fowler | Sports Editor • email@example.com • 541-564-4542 Jeanne Jewett | Multi-Media consultant • firstname.lastname@example.org • 541-564-4531 Audra Workman | Multi-Media consultant • email@example.com • 541-564-4538 Dawn Hendricks | Office Manager • firstname.lastname@example.org • 541-564-4530 To contact the Hermiston Herald for news, advertising or subscription information: • call 541-567-6457 • e-mail email@example.com • stop by our offices at 333 E.

It’s true, I actually saw a man shoot two deer with one shot!” 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. 75 YEARS AGO OCT. 14, 1943 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. 100 YEARS AGO OCT. 12, 1918 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 BRIEFS 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.

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.
