Of dams and dynamite

This is how one of the buildings that was part of the old Union fish hatchery complex looked when the facility was operating from the early 1920s to 1937 - Photo courtesy of Jerry Gildemeister and from the Dick Bonney collection
The buildings stand quietly and inauspiciously today east of Union on Highway 203, housing Oregon State Parks equipment and facilities.

No obvious evidence exists indicating that the structures were once linked to a violent chapter in Union's history.

The tale begins in the early 1920s when the buildings were constructed for a new state fish hatchery. Trout were raised there and then stocked in area streams and high mountain lakes in the Wallowas.

Imbler seniors come full circle

THOMPSON TIME: Nick Thompson and the Panthers will make their first trip to the state championship football game Saturday in Hillsboro. It will be the final high school game for the senior quarterback. - Observer file photo/PAUL HARDER
Today they'll pack the gymnasium at the pep rally, supporting those varsity athletes wearing big smiles from a successful season.

Teachers. Parents. Students. Alumni. Community members. They'll all stare at those Imbler Panthers — the kids readying for battle Saturday at 11 a.m. versus Mohawk at Hillsboro Stadium for the OSAA 1A state championship.

This is it.

Blue Mountain conference open for anyone

STRONG TAKE: Kyle O'Brien and the Bobcats will look to defend their conference title in 2007-2008. - Observer file photo/PAUL HARDER
With screen writers on strike, spectators looking for scintillating drama or action need look no further than the Blue Mountain Conference.

Union rolled to a 13-1 record and a conference title last season.

This year the conference title is open for grabs.

Joseph looks to avenge title loss

BADGER BEWARE: Powder senior Candra Clark and her teammates will begin the season at 3 p.m. Friday versus Weston-McEwen. - Observer File Photo
One team is rebuilding. Another is looking to avenge last year's defeat in the title game. And a few others will be trying to make a run for that precious Old Oregon League title.

The 2007 Old Oregon League Preview:

Imbler: target among old foes

ALL SET: Powder and Cove open at 3 p.m. Friday at the Lions Club Tournament hosted by Union. - Observer file photo
Orange, black and white.

Those colors belong to Imbler athletics. Now, you can add another: red.

You know, the colors of two rings and a circle making up a bullseye?

Season Opener: Union wins, Wallowa falls

UNION — Experience paved the way to an opening win for the Bobcats Tuesday.

Union cruised to a 71-38 victory over Prairie City in the season opener.

Union coach Brad Dunten said the game was a little of a surprise.

"We executed really well,'' Dunten said. "It was almost hard to tell it was the first game. The boys ran the court really well and got some easy points.''

Lady Mounties stay perfect (3-0)

Like a jigsaw puzzle, the Mountaineers women's basketball team continues sliding the pieces into the proper slots, chipping away at the big picture.

They took another step at solving the artistic riddle Monday, defeating host Whitman, 65-56.

Laura Olsen (16 points) and Breana Olson (12 points) were the offensive pieces, interlocking with defensive pieces Sheena Henderson (8 rebounds) and Tiffanie Ulmer (9 rebounds).

To the finals! Imbler wins

If you see Nick Thompson today, do him a favor.

Pinch him.

Tell the Imbler quarterback this magic carpet ride is reality, not a dream. Tell him that scoreboard Saturday reading Imbler 68, South Wasco 46 was real, not stage five sleep.

Go ahead. Grab two fingers, place them on his right arm, and give him a slight squeeze.

EOU cross country competes in badger state

KENOSHA, Wisc. — A difficult Wisconsin course and a fast field got the best of the Mountaineers' cross country teams Saturday.

On the men's side EOU finished 19th.

Individually, Zach Heath got a strong start, faded after 2.75 miles and then rallied well over the last 800-meters to finish first for EOU.

Mohawk crushes powder pride

MISSED CHANCES: Powder Valley junior Justin Allen tries to reel in a potential touchdown pass from quarterback Keegan Conro at the Mohawk goal line in the second quarter. However, the ball was tipped into the air and intercepted, resulting in one of several misssed opportunities in the first half for Powder Valley. Mohawk scored 22 points in the second quarter and took a 40-6 lead into halftime, putting the game well out of reach. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
NORTH POWDER — It was centered across the end zone, written in red and blue, symbolizing the Powder Valley mindset in this OSAA quarterfinal playoff game.


There it stood, a word of high self-esteem and respect, clearly visible on dry grass. But in the end, the lettering was torn and smeared, partly from Mother Nature, partly from Mohawk players crossing the goal line nine times.
