Rodeo stars head to Las Vegas


A while back we reported on the success of members of Team Billy. Billy Valdez and several of his children and grandchildren have been racking up wins in Indian rodeos throughout this season. Now we learn that four grandchildren of Billy and Alta Valdez will be competing in the Indian National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this November. Those qualifying are Jordan Dove, Courtney and Cloey Frazier, and the youngest of the four, 10-year old Emma Bear Patterson. This is a wonderful achievement, and their large, extended family and all of Glenwood are very proud of them. We wish them good luck in Las Vegas and will be waiting to hear the results.

Because the news items for this column need to be submitted several days before the papers are actually published, some news becomes obsolete or in error by the time readers see the column. Such is the case regarding the Glenwood weather statistics and the dry forest conditions. We’ve had several days of very welcome, wetting rain recently, which has greatly reduced wildfire danger in our area. The burn ban for our fire district has been lifted as of Oct. 4.

Carla Dillenburg spent last weekend on the Oregon coast for her annual family ladies’ retreat. This is always such a special, meaningful time for Carla and her family.

Here’s a chance to meet the candidates running for offices in our county or legislative district. There will be a “Meet the Candidates” night at the Goldendale Grange on Thursday, Oct. 13, beginning at 6 p.m. This is a chance to meet those who represent us and find out where they stand on issues that affect us here in Glenwood. Light refreshments will be served at the event.

Also on the 14th, eight Glenwood high school students will travel to Mark Morris High School in Longview to participate in the AWSL Fall Leadership Conference.
