HOT DOG SPROUTS WHEELS, ROLLS INTO LA GRANDE
David Eaton, of Indiana, and Nannette Bebermeyer, of Missouri, are making a week-long stop in La Grande during their 17-state tour with the Oscar Mayer mobile. Bebermeyer, a journalism major, and Eaton teamed up after being recruited by Oscar Mayer through their colleges. They make up the western states team, delegated to deliver prizes to the winners of the Oscar Mayer Schoolhouse Jam Talent Search. As the winner for the state of Oregon, South Baker Elementary School will receive a $10,000 check. The giant hot dog on wheels is equipped with relish-colored upholstery, condiment dispensers in place of map lights, and a camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle with a monitor on the dash.
