Lady Outlaws fall in tight contest
The Lady Outlaws played a very close game at Newport in the league opener, but lost the battle in a final score of 1-0. Two days later smoke was an issue, and the game was called at the half.

In Tuesday's match-up, the game was close from the get-go, and went back and forth from start to finish.

Outlaws return only five to varsity football squad
A handful of players return to the varsity football squad this year, including seniors Korbin Sharp, Joel Miller, Matt Harris, Taylor Fendall, and Ethan Martin.

Sharp is an all-league returning player and is one of the Outlaws' best athletes and leaders, and will play defensive back and wide receiver. He stands at 5 feet 11 inches, weighs in at 185 pounds, and according to Coach Neil Fendall, he is the hardest working player on the team, both mentally and physically. He's expected to be one of the top players in the Oregon West League this year.

An excellent hike up Scott Mountain
In the continuing search for forest that is still green, we once again headed to the west side of the Cascades, through the Milli Fire-ravaged east side of McKenzie Pass to the Scott Mountain Trailhead. This destination is occasionally overlooked but offers great views of the western aspects of the Three Sisters. As it turned out, even with our perpetually smokey skies, the view was superb.

The heart of a stuntman
Sisters resident Jeff Ramsey is a passionate man.

As a Hollywood stuntman and stunt coordinator he has been lit on fire by Drew Barrymore, kidnapped Mel Gibson, and been bashed over the head with a breakaway lamp by Julia Roberts' stunt double. He's crashed cars on purpose and been blown off of more horses than he can count, but above all, Ramsey says, "I love to be on fire."

Climbing Four In One Cone
"Green, green, it's green they say on the far side of the hill...." Go ahead, sing along if you want; it's true! If you can bear to drive past yet more miles and miles of charred forest, it is green just over the hill - specifically, just over McKenzie Pass. So, that's where this week's hike takes us.

Fly fishing only on Metolius River?
There's a proposal afoot to make the entire Metolius River fly fishing only. The move is spearheaded by Lake Oswego resident Chris Foster, who has fished the Metolius for decades; he believes that such a change in fishing regulations would better protect the river's redband trout while putting a big dent in the ongoing problem of bull trout poaching.
