Glenwood has a new little cowgirl. Kelly and Travis Miller are the proud parents of little Natalie Louise, who arrived a few weeks ahead of schedule on March 3rd. Natalie weighed an even 6 lbs. and was 18 ½ inches long. Proud grandparents are Chris and Harry Miller of Glenwood, and Laurie O’Leary and Jeff and Sara Link of Goldendale. Great-grandparents are Jim and Betty Link of Goldendale, Jim Correll of Asotin, and Mary Mullins of Port Angeles. Natalie is the newest member of the Glenwood Rodeo Association and will experience her first Glenwood Ketchum Kalf Rodeo this year. The entire community is thrilled to welcome little Natalie. Congratulations, Miller family.

Ranch families from nearly every corner of county gathered last Saturday night at the Elks Lodge in White Salmon for the 2019 Klickitat County Cattle Growers Association banquet. Association President Travis Miller and the other officers hosted the banquet, and we have to say, considering being in the middle of calving season (in the snow) and the early arrival of his precious little girl, Travis seemed remarkably cool under pressure. Great job, Travis.

During the program, lifelong Glenwood resident Lyle Schilling was awarded the O.P. Kreps Memorial Award for his decades of assistance to cattle ranchers in the county. Lyle, whose roots in the county go back many decades, spent many summers in his teenage years working on the Wyers and Kreps ranch in Gilmer. Although Lyle spent most of his working years in the logging industry, he always kept that connection to ranching and the award was well deserved. The award was presented by Lyle’s brother-in-law Larry Kelly. In addition to his wife Judy, other family in attendance to see him receive his award included his daughter Kelly who traveled all the way from North Pole, Alaska, daughters Shelly, Tonia, and Pam, and granddaughter Megan. Congratulations on receiving this award, Lyle.

Another long-time Glenwood resident, Duane Dewey, was presented the Jim Bridgefarmer Memorial Award by Harry Miller. Since retiring from his career in law enforcement and moving to Glenwood, Duane has been active in helping his many ranching friends whenever and wherever needed and serves as cattle range patrolman. His assistance over the years, especially during the devastating fires near Mt. Adams, has been invaluable and this award to Duane was very well deserved. Congratulations, Duane.

Bella Couch, a junior at Glenwood High School, has been selected by State Representative Chris Corry to serve as a page for the Washington State House of Representatives. Bella, daughter of Heather and Brad Gimlin and Shane and Kristi Couch, will serve for one week in April during the 2019 legislative session. What a great experience. Congratulations, Bella.

Don’t forget that school will be dismissed at 12:06 p.m. on Friday, March 15, and there will be no preschool that day. The Glenwood Eagles track team will travel to The Dalles for a meet beginning at noon on that day.
