ENTERPRISE — Consistency.
Maybe not in the line-up, but the Outlaws team is beginning to play well every night.
The Enterprise girls basketball team picked up a 50-45 win against Heppner Friday.
Outlaws head coach Mike Crawford said it's been a patchwork job the last few games.
Kevin Costner visited Union County in the summer of 1990, but it is not known if the popular actor stopped at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area.
Still, a line from Costner’s 1989 hit movie, “Field of Dreams,” is being used informally by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to describe its draft plan for the Ladd Marsh’s next 10 years — “Build it and they will come.’’
The ODFW plan calls for the maintenance and enhancement of the marsh’s diversified wildlife habitat. This will attract even more wildlife to the marsh.
Kids dream of a crowd cheering their name.
SLIM WIN: La Grande wrestler Andy Godfrey holds down Umatilla’s Jose Rosas during a match Friday. Godfrey escaped with a 5-4 win. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
Daniel Blake lived that dream Thursday.
The senior rallied to win his wrestling match, and La Grande dominated its home dual against a trio of high schools.
Blake, maybe still in a euphoric state, had trouble putting feelings into words.
Teresa Dowdy stood at the podium, fighting back tears, trying to speak, trying to announce an important message to players and parents at this varsity volleyball season-ending banquet.
The room went quiet. Silent enough for a dropped fork to carry an echo.
And then, finally, on this mid-November night at La Grande High, right there in the commons, this six-time conference Coach of the Year battled through those choked-up vocal chords, announcing her retirement.
Joining the growing number of university
mascots that promote, dance and entertain their way into a fan's heart,

ENTERPRISE — Awful.
OUTLAWED: Enterprise guard Tonya Neil streaks toward the basket on Tuesday as the Huskies' Ashley Burgess chases in pursuit. - Observer photos/PAUL HARDER
That is the only word to describe the Outlaw's performance on Saturday.
That is how the Enterprise girls basketball team played on Tuesday, during a 64-40 win against Elgin.
STANFIELD - Union proved to be good at basketball and juggling Saturday.
A limited Bobcats line-up beat Stanfield, 45-38.
Union head coach Brett Dunten said he had to rework the starting five due to illness.
"We weren't able to go with the normal five," Dunten said. "Other girls filled in and made an impact."
UNION — Prime time. It's what all events shoot for.
PINNED DOWN: Union/Powder Valley wrestler Cooper Pierce takes down Enterprise's Jordon Lund during a match Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
Union/Powder Valley hosted Enterprise in a wrestling dual for that reason, and didn't let the spectators down.
All seven matches ended by fall, with the Outlaws winning a lone match.
COVE — It started like a calm
day at sea, but suddenly, that ocean floor cracked, that tidal wave
followed, and nothing but destruction was left in its wake.
MC-ATTACK: Imbler senior Taylor McIntosh (center) drives past Jared Witty (left) and another Cove defender on Saturday. McIntosh finished with 23 points. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
Welcome to the scene Saturday at Cove High, as Imbler exploded
tsunami-style in the second half, sending Leopards scampering to higher
ground in a 63-25 rout.
NORTH POWDER — There was Powder Valley
junior Justin Allen, watching the ball come directly in front of him,
listening to the crowd chant for one more defensive stop.
EAGLES CLIPPED: Joseph guard Chris Harshman drives to the lane Friday at Powder Valley. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
Tick, tock, went the clock. Thump, thump, went the spectators' hearts.
Powder led by one, and here came the basketball, entering the
hands of Eagles guard Chris Harshman, and just as quickly, there it
went, leaving those hands courtesy of a cat-like swipe from Mr. Allen.
