Page 8 Hells Canyon Journal, March 29, 1989 by Susan Vaughan Spring is here and time to start thinking of Little Lea- gue. We expect another good turn out of ball players this year. We will have Pee Wee, Farm, Minor and Major teams as usual, plus for the first time, Baker County has organized a league for girls ages 9 through 12. We are fortunate to have three returning coaches this year, KarenEndersby, with her assistant Bob Chastain, will have the Pee Wee team; these are the 5 and 6 .year with the other teams to receive the best rates. We can not afford to order extra uniforms so if your child signs up late they will not have a uniform. Since this is the first year for a separate girls team, please call me if your daughter wants to play, we need at least 12 girls. Teena Seal hopes to coach these girls if we get a team together. National Forest olds, Jim Currey, who took Camp Stamps his team to first place last year, will coach the Farm team usually made up of 7 and 8 year olds and Terry Vaughan will be back for his sixth year as a coach to work with the Majors, 11 and 12 year olds. If you would be interested in coaching the Minors team, these kids will be 9 and 10, please let me know. You don't have to be a "jock" or baseball expert, you just need to like kids and be willing to spend about two afternoons a week for twd months with your team. Last year Dan Koopman, a high school senior, coached the Minors with his assistant Camp stamps are no long- er sold in the Pacific North- west Region of the Forest Service. "We regret that our camp- ers who used the program will no longer be able to purchase Campstamps," stated Lyle Laverty, Region- al Director of Recreation. "However, campers over 62 years of age, with the free Golden Age Passport, will continue to receive a 50 percent discount on camping fees." The phase out of the national program will be completed by January I, Jim Harlan, another high 1990. Campstamps that school student.

The Scouts jet boated down the Snake River from Hells Canyon Dam to Battle Creek on the Oregon side. Some of the troop's mothers came along for the boat ride both on the way to their campsite and on the way back. Along the Way jet boat driver Steve Zanelli of Hells Canyon Adventures gave the Scouts a tour of the Chimney Bar archaeological site. "Steve was kind enough to stop at Chimney Bar and show us the Indian picto- graphs, pit house remains and artifacts. He was a good host," commented Scout leader Mel Chick. When they arrived at Battle Creek the boys ex- plored the remains of the Barton cabin, once occupied by Hells Canyon homestead- ers. None of the Scouts stayed in the cabin, how- ever, as they brought along enough tents for everyone. On Friday the party hiked four miles downriver to Cache Creek, passing Wild Sheep and Granite Creek rapids along the way. Across the river they saw mountain goats at so great a distance they looked like white specks moving on a ridge above Granite Creek. Other wildlife sightings included deer, elk, bald To The Music Of Friday, March 31 New Band Local Talent!! eagles perched in trees and a campfire stories about bow golden eagle being harassed hunting and bears. by some crows.
