Rain Oregon

February 8, 1996 | From Associated Press
Hundreds of people fled their homes and hundreds of roadways were closed by high water and mudslides as unrelenting rain brought Oregon's worst flooding in more than 30 years. Most of the major east-west routes in Washington state also were shut by flooding. The coastal town of Tillamook, Ore., was cut off, and much of its downtown was under 6 to 7 feet of water. Coast Guard and county rescue boats were ferrying people, sometimes catching propellers on roofs of submerged cars.

Ninth-ranked USC's game against No. 23 Oregon today at the Coliseum will be a family affair for Trojans defensive end Clay Matthews and nose tackle Christian Tupou. Matthews' younger brother, Casey, is a sophomore linebacker for the Ducks. "I'm looking forward to it," Clay said. "Last year, on one punt return I went out of my way to hit him. I didn't get a good shot but whatever. "I think during the play he was telling me, 'C'mon, get out of the way!' That was pretty fun."

The forecast is for rain in Oregon. Big deal. A tailgate party in Oregon involves three people: one to bring the food, another to bring the beer and the third to bring the tent. But there's no tent over Autzen Stadium in Eugene, where UCLA and Oregon play today. "I think that rain tends to favor the team that runs the ball best," Oregon Coach Mike Bellotti said. "UCLA's big, experienced offensive line and Skip Hicks should make them the better running team."

Gusting Santa Ana winds blew over big rigs, whipped up dust storms and forced the closure of a stretch of heavily traveled Interstate 15 near Fontana in both directions Thursday. Gusts hit 78 mph at Fremont Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains between Orange and Riverside counties and 54 mph in Devore near the El Cajon Pass, the National Weather Service reported.

Federal forester Steve Bear stood on a fire-stripped slope of the San Gabriel Mountains last week, trying to find just one pine sapling, any sapling, pushing through the bright green bedspread of vegetation. It would give him hope after a year of disappointment. Last April, U.S. Forest Service crews planted nearly a million pine and fir trees to try to reclaim land scorched clean by the devastating Station fire. Most of them shriveled up and died within months, as skeptics had predicted.

Memo to Georgia: The road, this week, does not lead back to you. It leads to Oregon. Not generally considered the cradle of anything except rain, Oregon is suddenly a cross-legged guru from which all college football eminence flows. No. 6 California plays at No. 11 Oregon in Eugene in a marquee game being televised by ABC and announced by former Oregon quarterback Dan Fouts.

For a while, it seemed everyone was talking about bridges . . . in particular the covered bridges Robert Waller described in "The Bridges of Madison County," his best-selling novel set in Iowa. The book has lured thousands of tourists from all over the world to Madison County. But you don't have to go to the Midwest to see covered bridges. Oregon has more. More, in fact, than any other state west of the Mississippi.
The game was close until Anthony Davis got his hands on the football for the first time. That was the opening kickoff, and after Davis had gone 97 yards in 13 seconds, USC had a 7-0 lead over Notre Dame during the 1972 game in the Coliseum. The game was close again after the Fighting Irish had pulled to within 25-23 midway in the third quarter. A.D. time once again. This time it was a 96-yard kickoff return that broke the spirit of Coach Ara Parseghian's Notre Dame team.
The woman of a thousand faces swung open the door of her sun-dappled Encino home. It appeared to be Jean Smart, all right--blond, 5-foot-10, bright smile that reminded you of some dairy queen on the cover of an outdoor magazine. But if you've followed Smart's blinding array of TV movie personas, you can never be sure who the real Jean Smart is.

"I'm a Chevrolet man by heart," Fred says, folding his arms across his chest, thinking about what he's just said, eyeing his everyday truck, a '41 Chevy pickup, black. It's a little cool outside, overcast. Fred's got a wool shirt on under his coveralls, which are smeared with grease. He's a skinny guy, baseball cap, gray whiskers. Wonderful laugh. The laugh seems to rattle his bones. Makes his shoulders jump up and down. Why is that, Fred? "I don't know. I really don't know. Don't know.
