Operation Eagles Wings interview Aubrey Headon with patriotic prom dress

Operation Eagles Wings interview Aubrey Headon with patriotic prom dress

April 30, 2019

An Illinois high school senior used her high school prom to pay tribute to Marines killed in action.  

Aubrey Headon, who attends Rochelle Township High School in Rochelle, Ill., designed the patriotic dress to resemble an American flag.

Aubrey took two years to make a red, white, and blue patriotic prom dress.   But it's not an ordinary dress.   On the red and white ribbons are 25 names printed in white and black belonging to the members of the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, also known as 3/5 or Darkhorse, that were killed in action between September 2010 and April 2011 while conducting operations in the Sangin District of Helmand Province in Afghanistan.

Hearing about the battalion inspired Headon to pay tribute to the men’s sacrifice.    She has a personal connection to the unit.  She knows one of the men who died.    Oregon residents can share that loss.    Sergeant Ian Tawney of Dallas, Oregon was also killed during the same time frame.    

He served with the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Pendleton, Calif.

At the time of his death, mid October of 2010, Tawney was the 10th Marine from his battalion to be killed in 10 days.

Equine Rescue Sling Project presentation May 2nd at American Legion, Mac

Equine Rescue Sling Project presentation May 2nd at American Legion, Mac

April 29, 2019

PRESENTATION AND DEMONSTRATION OF NEED FOR LARGE ANIMAL RESCUE EQUIPMENT

If you are interested in rescuing horses, there is a 6 pm no host dinner and 7 pm free presentation at the American Legion post 21 in McMinnville Thursday, May 2nd. that will interest you. The West Valley Chapter of Oregon Equestrian Trails will give an update on the "Sling Project". Mariann Deering of Sherwood, Oregon created the "Sling Project" after a freak accident with her horse Chiqua at Timothy Lake in 2018.

That accident showed the lack of adequate large animal rescue equipment available in north Oregon or Southwest Washington.

Determined to keep this from happening again, Deering raised 20-thousand dollars through Go Fund Me and created The Sling Project and is now donating large and small rescue equipment to organizations in Oregon and Washington.

This organizations are able to hold, maintain, and then use this equipment in rescues.

Her presentation will include pictures of the Chiqua rescue in Oregon and the Huckleberry Helicopter rescue in Eastern Washington. There will also be a discussion of what went wrong and what went right in this efforts.
There will be a no host dinner at 6 pm and the presentation at 7 pm.

Homelessness in Yamhill, Polk, Marion Counties topic of 7:45am Friday interview on KLYC

April 26, 2019

Jimmy Jones, the director of the Mid Willamette Valley Community Action Agency will be on KLYC at 7:45 am Friday, April 25 talking about the Homeless situation and the camps in Yamhill County.   Specifically McMinnville.   Jones spoke to the Yamhill County Commissioners recently proposing that Yamhill County participate in a tri-county Continuum of Care to address homelessness in Marion, Polk and Yamhill Counties.    

Jones says the counties could engage more resources and get more bang for the buck with a focused, regional approach.     The proposal is to have staff housed with the Mid Willamette Valley council of governments to oversee the program.   Staff could ensure the federal government gets the data they need to  make a better case for more money.  Yamhill County is still considering joining this Continuum arrangement.   At first glance, Yamhill County Commissioners says they like the idea, but want to have a more thorough look at the proposal.
