Ten-year-old Hannah Hodge has been busy competing in quite a few beauty pageants lately. First the USA Ambassador Nationals in Florida in July, then the West Coast Fabulous Faces in Eugene and, most recently, the Oregon state Raindrop Pageant in Portland, where she was awarded the “2012 Oregon State Raindrop Pageant Overall Petite Miss” title or overall queen.

“It felt great (to win) because I’d been working so hard,” Hannah said. “All my work has just finally paid off.”


Azalea students promote anti-bullying message

About 125 Azalea Middle School students wrote positive messages such as “You’re awesome!” on Post-It Notes Nov. 16 and then decorated school lockers with them during a Friends of Rachel (FOR) Club meeting. 

“We’re focusing on the things that lead to bullying: low self-esteem, lack of purpose … and that each student has a unique gift to contribute,” FOR Club lead mentor Katherine Johnson said. “Our differences are what make us unique, and we need our differences to make a difference. The goal is to continue to reinforce the message of Rachel’s Challenge.”


Berries in the Bog

Kalmiopsis Elementary School fifth graders recently learned everything cranberry – how they’re grown, what they taste like, what products they’re used in and where they’re shipped – on a field trip to Clearwater Cranberries, a cranberry bog outside Port Orford. 

“It was an excellent experience for the kids,” fifth grade teacher Nikki Darger said. “Even though it was raining, they enjoyed it. It was good to see and experience how farmers face a lot of adversity.”

While at the bog, students watched farmers harvest the crop. 

To harvest the berries, first the field is flooded. Then a water beater knocks the berries off the vine and the crop floats to the surface. Next, a boom corrals the berries and workers rake the berries onto an escalator, which transports them onto a truck.
