COMMUNITY A2 • HERMISTONHERALD.COM THREE MINUTES WITH ... WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 2019 HERMISTON HISTORY TIAH ESTABROOK Co-administrator What’s Happening Hermiston Facebook page When and why did you move to Hermiston? Lived here off and on growing up, but my dad worked for the Union Paciﬁ c Railroad so we moved around a lot. When he retired in 1994 we moved back because my mom’s family grew up here. HH ﬁ le photo What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston? Hands down, Hales! Warrant Oﬃ cer Donald G. Study of Hermiston receives the Army Aviation Center’s Broken Wing Award in 1969 for safely landing a helicopter with a broken collective pitch lever without further damaging the craft. What do you like to do in your spare time? Hang out with family, whether it’s barbecues or watching movies, I love spending time with them, including my siblings and their families. What surprises you about Hermiston? The constant growth. As you look around Herm- iston you always see something new or things changing. What was the last book you read? Deﬁ nitely a children’s book to my great nephew because I truly hate to read…but I always encour- aged my kids to read growing up, and now encour- age my nephews and my great nephew because I don’t want them growing up hating it like I did. What website or app do you use most other than Facebook? Snapchat! Seriously, my friends and I have a great time with those ﬁ lters! If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Hawaii or the Bahamas What is the funniest thing that’s ever hap- pened to you? Well my friend, Tammy Malgesini, and I used to work together and we loved playing pranks on each other all the time, and one time she was leav- ing on vacation for a couple of weeks and decided that come Monday morning, I should have to start my day out with a scavenger hunt! She literally hid all of my keys to open all the inside doors and cab- inets to all the client charts and left the ﬁ rst clue on my desk with a riddle to solve to ﬁ nd the next clue, which was another riddle. There were riddles in the Pepsi machine, in the bathroom, in the staff lounge, and all I could do was laugh going from riddle to riddle and plot my revenge! What is one of your goals for the next 12 months? To eat healthy and always take care of myself! What is your proudest accomplishment? Deﬁ nitely my three children who’ve become kind, caring, giving, and responsible adults, because without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

It began when he pulled a drown- ing dog from an irrigation canal that runs along the city’s South Hill. Wit- nesses said the dog promptly left the area upon being deposited on dry land. “He wasn’t too impressed,” Umatilla Police dispatcher Bernie Roxbury said. That afternoon, Cearns played a role in apprehending two car thieves who had high-centered their sto- len auto in the sand by the Umatilla River. Not knowing it was stolen, Cearns helped them free the vehi- cle. However, he seemed to sense all was not right with the two in the car. He called the police and, after some confusion over the license plate num- ber was resolved, the suspects were arrested a short time later. 50 YEARS AGO JULY 17, 1969 Richard R. Sherman, 38, of Uma- tilla, was arrested by U.S. marshals Tuesday on charges of violating postal laws to promote a chain letter scheme. The complaint said Sherman mailed numerous letters promising recipients $8,000. They were asked to send $1 to the top name in the list of four names at the bottom of the letter, send out 20 copies of the letter, delete the top name and put their own in fourth place. The complaint said all four names on the original letter were Sherman’s aliases. 2) The bodies of George Gilham, 44, a local jeweler, and Jack Duane Inglis, 36, of Spokane, were found Saturday about 13 miles west of Baker near Pine Creek reservoir by Ron Johnson, a Baker ﬁ sherman. The men were found in the wreck- age of Gilham’s single engine light plane which crashed May 1 enroute from Baker to Stanpoint, Idaho in dan- gerous conditions. An intensive search for the place continued for several weeks after it was reported missing.

According to the ofﬁ cials of the OPA this is no scare talk but a warning that must be regarded or there may be intense suffering before the winter is over. Conditions arising from the sum- mer campaign in Europe are direct factors in the announced scarcity. Whether the European conﬂ ict ceases by January or February or not, war needs will drain production resources and civilian supplies will be cut. Should the war in Europe come to a close around the ﬁ rst of the year it is said that heavily withdrawals of fuel oil will be made in order to fuel the Atlantic ﬂ ee for transfer to the Paciﬁ c zone. The OPA advises that people depending upon this type of fuel not delay in using up their surplus cou- pons from last year as well as going into ﬁ rst period coupons of the new issue and buy all the oil they can store on their premises. S. Norton Bobo, formerly editor of the Stanﬁ eld Standard and who will be remembered by many in this city, has been awarded the French Croix de Guerre, according to an announce- ment made by the Red Cross. At the outbreak of hostilities Mr. Bobo tried for service under Uncle Sam, but was turned down. Not in the least dismayed, he next turned to the Red Cross and was there more successful. Bobo went ovwerseas a year ago and has not yet returned. Most of his time was spent on the British ﬁ ghting front and it was in appreciation of service in that section that he received the coveted French decoration. 2) A.C. DeVleming, who has been held in the county jail at Pend- leton the past six weeks to await the September grand jury’s action, was released Thursday afternoon upon furnishing $500 in bonds. His bond was reduced from $750 to $500. DeVleming and his brother were arrested and charged with arson two months ago, following the destruction of their house near here, but the brother raised the bonds after serving a short time in jail.
