Hard Facts: Community continues to show generosity

It’s amazing to see how much generosity is welled up in this valley.

Year after year, sponsors and individuals give donations to ensure Union and Wallowa County athletes have a chance to compete at the state’s highest level.

With the Little League and Babe Ruth State Tournaments wrapping up this past weekend, coaches shared firsthand the gratitude for businesses and people willing to open their wallets.


Mason Minute - Hockey isn’t a game, it’s a way of life

Earthquake? Ha! Some seismologists.

That “trembling” was just me last Thursday, celebrating a Detroit Red Wings playoff goal. They scored. I jumped. The earth shook. Richter scale read 2.1.

And nobody felt it.


Hard Facts: Mouthy fan undermines Blazers

Hard Facts: Blazer pride is back

Blazermania is back!

Hard Facts: Ducks' certainly etched in stone

How many people woke up feeling refreshed in Oregon today? Probably not many following the Ducks' loss in Tucson.

While most fans of the soon to be former No. 2 team will not admit it, they were preparing for it.

Why?

It used to be death and taxes were the only two certainties in life, but add another one to the stone slab — the Ducks will let you down.


Hard Facts: It's a cruel world after all


BSU: 'Later, Sooners'


Hard Facts: Where is the line drawn

All sports events start with the playing of the National Anthem. There have been many renditions throughout the years, both good and bad. But must we draw the line somewhere?

Yes, people need to remember that this is not their song— it is our country's song.


Hard Facts: More than athletes

Next time you see an athlete being a jerk, try to remember some of them are people, too.
