GOLDENDALE, WASHINGTON MAY 20, 2015 -- 7 Goldendale High 00€:hool Vocational teacher Rob Wing on to other th:'Lngs AKASHA SPINO-BYBEE REPORTER With all of the changes happening within modern school systems, it can be hard for the teachers who have been around since the time schools taught typing on type- writers to keep up with it all. This is one of the few reasons Goldendale High School voca- tional program teacher Rob Wing has decided to retire. "I was raised in Benton City. I always knew that I would be going to college be- cause my parents were both teachers," says Wing. With the luck of the draw, college would be the very thing that decided the next 32 years for Wing and his career. "I ended up going to Central Washing- ton University in Ellensburg, and during my senior year, I met my wife and signed a con- tract to teach at Goldendale High School," he says. "We got married in August of 1983, Bikefest was a hit: great expectations for next year AKASHA SPINO-BYBEE REPORTER You may or may not have attended the "Bikefest" that was organized by Center- ville resident and member of the Trail Riding Association of Klickitat County (TRACK), Brock Warrener. If you did, you were in for a treat. After taking those in attendance to visit three dif- ferent locations around Klickitat County to ride and establish trail possibilities, partake in some bicycle- friendly games and enjoy a very lively performance by Portland band, Manimal House, Warrener showed his supporters a great time. "We had about 15 to 20 people show up for the trail tour around Klickitat Coun- ty," says Warrener. Seattle resident Michael McLane was one of the 20 to ride to different locations and wit- ness Warrener's vision of the biking mecca he hopes to one day be the city of Gold- endale, firsthand. "Golden- dale sits in a very unique area, which could allow it to become a destination for,cy- cling enthusiasts and pro- vide the city and surround- ing communities in Klicki- tat County with additional tourism," says McLane. "With such close proximi- ty to diverse landscapes, beautiful scenic views of the Northwest's greatest moun- tains, its varied terrain and miles of paved and gravel roads, it provides a variety of options for cyclists of all types. With the right trail and outreach, people may choose to pass through Gold- endale more often, stopping off, riding some trails, grab- bing a bite to eat or even stay the night," he adds. Although touring the beautiful scenes of the gorge was an important part of Bikefest, it was not the only attraction. "Mr. View Cycles from Hood River brought their newest, top of the line demos from Specialized to Trek and everyone who showed up got to try out a couple of the bikes," says Warrener. "We had an abun- dance of free helmets pro- vided by the Klickitat Coun- ty Parks and Recreation Dis- trict to those in need and thankfully, there were no ca- sualties during the event. Forty people showed up at the American Legion that evening for the concert and the band brought everyone to their knees with a funky mix of original music and songs by Bruno Mars and Beyonce." Unfortunately, while everyone had enjoyed the festivities, no one had en- tered a bike rack for the bike rack competition. "No one had entered the competi- tion," says Warrener, "racks are a crucial need for our town to truly become a bik- ing mecca." Without a doubt in his mind, this small bump in the road does not deter Warrener from the desire to have another Bikefest next year. "Next year, the event will be even bigger and bet- ter," he says. ACUPUNCTURE Police seek leads on burglaries Hometown Pizza of Goldendale was burglarized twice within a 24 hour period last week. Someone stole money from the till in the morning hours of May 11. The business was hit again after closing on May 11. A four-wheeler was stolen from the Goldendale High School baseball field. The vehicle is a 1985, red Honda 250 three-wheeler converted to four wheels. It was reported stolen on May 14 at 7:35 p.m. The vehicle was at the field to be used for dragging the infield. Anyone with information about these incidents should contact Goldendale Police at 773-3780. OPHTHALMOLOGY Dentists the day after we moved to Goldendale and I have been here ever since." Wing's career at the high school started off by teaching typing and short-hand writ- ing, and based on his current classes one can easily see how time has changed. "I currently teach digital communications, where I am basically teaching the stu- dents how to use all of the Mi- crosoft Office programs," he says. "I also teach two busi- ness English classes, as well as a personal finance class." Wing talks about what he has enjoyed most about teaching for the past 32 years, and one can tell how much he enjoys being surprised. "Every day is a different day with the students; you don't know what to expect from them. It just added an inter- esting aspect to the job--it was never boring," he says. "I've also very much enjoyed working with my colleagues here who have all taught me a lot." According to Wing, federal and state testing has made it more difficult for vocational programs like his to succeed.
