I was excited to be invited to play the newest golf course in the Northwest, Gamble Sands, just a few miles north of Brewster, on Friday. This event was held for VIPs and media one day before the course opened for public play. (I don’t know which of those two groups I belong, so I’ll just presume both.)
The fact that the Columbia Basin River Dogs will be participating in the 2014 Babe Ruth 16-18 Year Old World Series, which begins tonight at Johnson-O’Brien Stadium in Ephrata, is certainly no surprise; as the host team, the River Dogs earned an automatic berth, and even if they hadn’t, they’re a good enough team that they probably would’ve qualified anyway. The River Dogs have a long history of success, and this year is no exception.
PATEROS — In the wake of devastation, determined communities seem to find a common theme to rally around. In Pateros, that theme could be as small as a phrase on a hat. The hats, which read, “Pateros Strong, Rising from the Ashes 2014” will be available at Pateros High School and various Pateros businesses as early as this morning.
