MORO – The No. 1-ranked Sherman Huskies scored 73 points in two district games last weekend in Madras and could not get their shots to fall. Tuesday was a different story, however. Luke Martin and Caleb Fritts combined for 33 points, the Huskies had four players hit double figures and they nearly matched their two-game district total in a 66-44 state sub-round home romp against North Clackamas Christian Tuesday in Moro.
Cooper Bales and Trey Darden rattled off 11 points each, Daniel Radcliffe added six and the Dufur Rangers jumped out to a 22-10 halftime lead and came away with a 39-31 upset road victory over the No. 11-ranked Joseph Eagles in state sub-round action Tuesday in Joseph.

After losing $1,500 dollars looking for a house in The Dalles last year, my family felt used and discouraged. We are desperate to improve our housing situation and until we lost those funds we thought that we had enough money for a small down payment.
We have been reduced to trying to replace the trailer we own with a new manufactured home in the trailer park where we currently reside.
We have been working by ourselves on the application for the permit since October 2018. We have made eight trips to the planning office. Each time we got no concrete help, just more confusion. Read more
