Looking back on June 19

Looking back on June 19, from the archives of The Dalles Chronicle.

Commentary: With love, from a grateful daughter

Springtime... I step out the front door of my parent’s house, headed to the car. I’d already kissed my folks goodbye, but they’d stayed inside, giving me the dignity of an adult leave taking. I appreciate it, though I am already becoming a little homesick. The little Dodge Colt sits waiting in the driveway, ready to take me back to school in the valley, three hours and a world away.

Commentary: Bipartisan work needed on train safety

The Mosier train derailment on June 3rd was a terrible accident. But from the accident, we have learned many valuable things. As the members of the Oregon House who represent the gorge region in Salem, it was especially instructive for us to be able to witness first-hand how legislation passed in the 2015 session impacted the reaction to events that occurred that weekend.

Making math matter

Fifth-grader Lindy Taylor decided to add two pools to her shopping list for a Memorial Day picnic, bringing the cost to feed and entertain 14 people to $405. “I was planning for a warm day,” she said about the math lesson given to her Colonel Wright Elementary class by teacher Steve Chance. “I was really nervous about it because I thought I was going to mess up on the math, but once I got going, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.”

One Chance at a time

The Chance family has a long lineage of educators, so it was no surprise to Steve that his son, Tim, would choose that profession.

What happened to ‘Ray?’

“Ray,” a 1,300-pound male California sea lion, was a well-known fixture at The Dalles Marina, where he took up residence on a tenant’s dock in 2011. For years, he was a highly visible member of the river community, hauling himself out on a marina dock each day and feasting on salmon migrating through the river.

Orlando victims remembered

Tears were shed and there were quiet periods of somber reflection Thursday evening as people joining the “We Stand with Orlando” vigil in The Dalles looked at photos of the 49 victims of America’s worst mass shooting. “They were just people who were out celebrating with friends and family, people who worked there,” said organizer Denise Harwood about the victims gunned down June 12 by a lone gunman at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. In addition to those who were killed in the tragedy, 53 people were injured and some are still in the hospital due to the severity of their wounds.

Lee helps lock down finals bid for Pepsi

Pitcher escapes late jam in Pepsi’s 10-9 triumph

With the game on the line, his team ahead by one run and ECE threatening with runners in scoring position in the top of the sixth inning, Pepsi pitcher Henry Lee needed to do whatever it took to get his team to the championship game. The crowd was divided, cascading Kramer Field with cheers and boos, but the young pitching phenom had to settle in and will his team to victory. Lee escaped the sixth inning jam with back-to-back strikeouts, and then struck out the side in the top of the seventh to help Pepsi secure a 10-9 win over ECE in its Babe Ruth semifinal matchup.

Letter to the editor:

To the editor: I find it quite odd that The Dalles Chronicle has failed to truly acknowledge that any tragedy has happened in Orlando. A few small articles printed on the third page of today’s paper is hardly an appropriate response from such a community of loving and caring people.
