Middle school volleyball team goes undefeated


Glenwood’s Candidates’ Night on Tuesday, Oct. 21 was a huge success! There was standing room only in the Grange Hall as voters from around the county came to listen to candidates for federal, state and local positions. This year’s county races have been particularly contentious; and voters seem anxious to be well informed before they cast their ballots. Candidates were allowed three-minutes to tell about themselves and two additional minutes to answer questions.

The following candidates participated in the event: Bob Dingethal, Third Congressional District; Norm Johnson, Position 1 and Gina McCabe, Position 2 in the Fourteenth Legislative District; Crista Schroder and Darlene Johnson, County Assessor: Brenda Sorensen, County Auditor; Renea Campbell, County Clerk; David Sauter and Mike Richards, County Commissioner Position 2; Lori Hoctor and David Quesnel, County Prosecuting Attorney; Bob Songer and Marc Boardman, County Sheriff; Greg Gallagher, County Treasurer; Jeff Brown, West District Court Judge; and Dan Gunkel and Sherry Carver, Public Utility District Commissioner Position 3. Former Judge Tom Reynolds spoke on behalf of the County Park and Recreation District 2 levy. Representative Norm Johnson gave short explanations of Initiative Measures 1351 (K-12 education); 591 (firearms) and 594 (firearms); and Advisory Votes 8 (marijuana excise tax) and 9 (tribal leasehold excise taxes.) Thank you to Jay McLaughlin for emceeing the event!

Everyone should have received their voters’ pamphlets and ballots by now. Please remember to be informed about each candidate, initiative, levy and advisory vote before marking your ballot. Ballots must be returned to one of the drop boxes around the county or postmarked by next Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Congratulations to Coach Sara McFall and her Glenwood Middle School volleyball team! They just completed an undefeated season of play with teams from Trout Lake, Klickitat, Lyle and Centerville. Bella Couch, Brooklyn Emerson, Bailey Gimlin, Carmen Guzman, Kaitlyn Masden, Lilly Molyneaux, Emma Odom, Nahaleigh Schuster, Kinley Troh, Marquis Tyndall and Crysta Warren played eight regular season games before the league tournament in Klickitat on Oct. 22. The girls took on Lyle, Centerville and Trout Lake at the season-finale tournament; and were declared league champions. Way to go ladies!

Coach Jaecee Hoctor, Madi Couch, Reyauna Guzman and Tamaira Huffsmith are part of the Klickitat Vandals High School volleyball team this year. The girls completed regular season play last Friday when they took on Lyle-Wishram. They played an alumni game at Glenwood last Saturday; and will play an alumni game in Klickitat on November 1 before heading to District Tournament competition on Nov. 8. Best wishes Lady Vandals!

The big night most kids can barely wait for is this Friday! The Halloween Festival on Main Street in Glenwood will prove fun for old and young kids alike! The festivities begin at 5 p.m. with trunk or treat decorations, costume, pumpkin-bakeoff and carved-pumpkin contests. Prizes are up for grabs in all four contests. Treats will be offered from the trunk or treating participants and Claude will serve complimentary chili and hot cocoa at the Glenwood General Store during the evening. School students will be manning Halloween-themed booths at Hoodenpyl’s Park; and, weather permitting, a hay ride, movie in the park and bonfire with s’mores will be part of the evening’s happenings. For information about any of the contests or activities please contact the Glenwood General Store.

My very favorite day of the year arrives on Nov. 2 at 2 a.m. this year. Standard Time returns and requires us to turn back our clocks one hour before we retire on Saturday evening. I don’t know about you…but that extra hour seems like an extravagance; a gift from Heaven; an extra hour of time to do with what we like! The downside of the return to Standard Time is getting used to the earlier arrival of darkness each evening. When Standard Time returns…winter follows close on its heels. Do you have your outdoor fall chores done yet?

For those hunting widows or ladies who just like a chick flick – plan to take in dinner and a movie at the Pioneer Memorial Community Church on Nov. 8 at 4 p.m. High-school age and older ladies are invited to enjoy “Fried Green Tomatoes” along with a movie-inspired meal. Please RSVP by November 6 to Jennifer Hallenbeck 364-3517, Jackie Rosier 364-3365 or Betsy Putnam 364-3333 so adequate food can be arranged.

Coming events:

Oct. 28: High school boys’ soccer at Hood River a 4 p.m.

Nov. 8: High school volleyball District Tournament (time and location TBA)

Nov. 14 and 15: High school volleyball State Tournament (time and location TBA)

Nov. 15: Glenwood Fall Bazaar at the school 9 a.m. through 3 p.m.

Nov. 23: Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the school beginning at 3 p.m.
