(News-Register staff) Parker Moore's 9th grade math teacher wrote a touching remembrance on his blog about the Linfield student who died Saturday night.

Ryan Adams, who besides teaching math is also a Linfield alumnus, remembers the Moore as a "good looking, athletic, popular and charismatic kid that girls had crushes on, and all athletes looked up to."

Moore also helped inspire Adams as a teacher too:

"Do you ever have students that when they walk into your class, they inherently care about the learning of every other student in the room?

"For the first five or six years of my career I would have easily answered that question with a loud and emphatic, No!  Students may come in and are willing to help other students, are willing to work in groups, are willing speak to and disagree respectfully with every other student in the room.  But care about their learning, no.  That is until I had Parker Archie Moore in my 9th grade Alg 1 class."

Snow in November rare in these parts

Early blast of winter conjures memories of 1996

(Starla Pointer/News-Register)  As I watched snowflakes drifting down at 3 a.m. Thursday, I realized this was the earliest snowfall I’d ever seen here.

The Yamhill Valley doesn’t get a lot of snow, for which I am grateful. And by the time it does, the calendar has usually turned to December or January.

We’ve had snow in February, too. We’ve even had dustings in March. And I remember driving through a snow-covered landscape to get to a Battle of the Books state final one April.

OSAA leaves Amity football in the cold

Warriors left out of playoff picture despite Top 12 power ranking

(Robert Husseman/News-Register Sports Editor) Amity High School's football team had a successful season this year but the Oregon State Activities Association left the Warriors off the state playoff list despite the team's lofty ranking. A worthy school is left off the list most every year but perhaps there's a better way to make post-season selections.

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for northwestern Oregon, warning of temperatures dropping into the 30s tonight, and the 20s tomorrow night, with freezing rain expected Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Temperatures are predicted to be in the low 30s Wednesday night. Conditions are expected to be windy Tuesday and Wednesday, as well.

Junior hockey taken to court

Northwest teams, including Portland Winterhawks, tied up in legal troubles

(Rockne Roll/News-Register)  An attorney in Ontario, Canada, presumably taking a page from legal actions being filed against the National Collegiate Athletic Association, has filed a suit in Canadian court that could hit closer to home for Oregon sports fans then one might think.

NPR is reporting that Ted Charney has initiated a class action on behalf of players in Canada’s three Major Junior Hockey leagues demanding back wages, vacation pay and unpaid overtime. One of those leagues, the Western Hockey League, includes the Portland Winterhawks among its five U.S. members. Three other American teams play in the Ontario Hockey League, also part of the suit.
