Pamplin Media Group – Twins are OSU-bound
Over the last four years, the Hernandez twins Daniel and Marcos, both 18 have compiled a veritable laundry list of accomplishments at Century High School in Hillsboro.
Theyve mentored freshmen as members of Jag Crew (Jag is short for Jaguars, the school mascot), been part of the Students Today Arent Ready for Sex (STARS) program, kept their noses in the books at meetings of the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) club and participated in the Cure Kids Jam and Festival, which raised money for a young friend with juvenile myositis.
Theyve also played football and baseball (Daniel added track) and have been inducted into the National Honor Society. The Hernandezes, who live in Hillsboro, would say theyve collaborated on it all.
It helps to have a twin, said Marcos, the younger of the fraternal twins, whose birthday is March 21. You always have someone there to study with.
Daniel couldnt agree more.
We push each other and encourage one another in everything, he said.
Products of the Hillsboro school system the teens went to Mooberry and Imlay elementary schools and Brown Middle School before landing at Century Daniel and Marcos are counting the days until they graduate with the Class of 2014 on June 6.
Theyll both be wearing the special cords over their gowns that connote high academic achievement. Their parents, Christina Valenzuela and Juan Hernandez, along with their siblings, will be in the audience cheering them on.
I feel like were making the whole family proud, said Daniel.
Valenzuela, a lab supervisor at New Season Foods in Forest Grove, and Hernandez, head brewer at SakeOne in Forest Grove, each earned a General Educational Development (GED) certificate, but did not go on to college.
Their older brother, Juan Jr., graduated from Century and is living and working in San Diego. Their sister, Marissa is a freshman at Century, making Marcos and Daniel the first in their family to seek a higher education.
College is something both brothers say theyve been dreaming of for a long time.
Id say it first crossed my mind around middle school, said Daniel. For Marcos, things really jelled when he took the ACT and SAT college entrance exams his junior year and after he realized his mom and dad supported the idea.
Our parents encouraged us to go to college, he said. They want us to have a good life.
Both brothers have received letters of acceptance to attend Oregon State University next fall. Marcos roommate in Buxton Hall on the Corvallis campus will be his friend Deevon Castaneda, while Daniels will be Zach Zouyed.
Their twin love of chemistry has them majoring in chemical engineering.
There are a lot of things I could do with my degree, mused Marcos. Maybe improve the quality of life for other people.
While Daniel took advanced-placement courses in chemistry and calculus at Century, Marcos added physics to the AP mix. They agree the extra rigor was worth it.
It was definitely stressful, said Daniel. There were a lot of late nights.
It was tough, but worth it to get the extra knowledge, added Marcos, who said he and Daniel had maintained a friendly competition at Century to see who could make better grades.
Lately thats kind of toned down, he said. We have a silent thing going, but each of us knows we support the other one.
Asked to describe their twin in three words, the brothers looked at each other and smiled.
Daniel is headstrong, persistent and hardworking, said Marcos.
Marcos is serious, determined and hardworking, assessed Daniel. I joke around more than he does.
Loans and scholarships will mostly take care of the boys tuition, room, board and books at OSU, but theyre keenly aware that these days, a college education places a large financial burden on the shoulders of graduates.
Someday Id like to start a scholarship fund to help kids who cant afford it, said Daniel. I definitely want to give back to my community.
For Marcos, the desire to pay it forward will eventually take the form of mentorship the kind of support he received from Century teacher and AVID advisor Heather Zehr.
We attended study groups, did tutorials and practiced organizational skills that helped us get ready for tests, he said. Everything we did and that Ms. Zehr helped us with was designed to get us to a four-year university.
In the next few weeks, however, with prom on May 31 and commencement a week later, the Hernandezes will bask in the glow of their achievements.
Its already hitting me that were about to graduate, and Im really excited, said Marcos. Our parents are extremely proud of us.
I feel a huge responsibility to do well in college and get good grades, he said. This is definitely a big deal.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) | Oregon State University
What is myHousing?
myHousing is a student portal to help you navigate your housing and dining experience at OSU-Cascades.
What can I do on myHousing?
Your myHousng is where you will be able to access your housing application, sign your housing and dining contract, find out who your roommate/suitemate is and be able to email them, plus so much more. Once the school year begins, you will be able to submit a room maintenance request and access many more options via your myHousing.
Am I required to live on campus?
Oregon State University – Cascades has a required on-campus living requirement for first-year, residential students. Living on-campus is an integral and excellent way for students to connect with others on campus and has been shown to have a positive effect on student success. Students must submit a petition to be considered for an exemption from the live-on requirement.
I don’t know if I’ve been admitted to OSU-Cascades yet. Can I still apply for housing?
You must first gain admission to OSU-Cascades before you can apply for on-campus housing. Once you have gained admittance, we would recommend starting the application process as soon as possible to ensure you receive one of your top housing preferences.
How do I start the application process?
Please review our application process here.
I am the parent of a student coming to OSU-Cascades. Can I apply for housing for them?
All residents must apply for housing themselves, unless they require assistance in the process. Since they will be the ones living with us, we encourage students to complete their own housing application and roommate profile.
Will I need to pay a deposit or advance rent payment?
No, there is no deposit or advance rent payment necessary. The only payment you will have to make is the $50.00 non-refundable contract signing fee for the residence hall that is applied to your student account prior to your arrival on campus.
What if I am admitted to the University late?
Applications are taken on a rolling basis. Room selection goes by housing application submission date. Therefore, the sooner you submit your housing application the more likely you will be able to select one of your top housing preferences when room selection begins.
What is the housing contract?
The contract is a document that tells you what the rules and expectations are for a resident living with us. When you sign the contract you agree to the rules and guidelines. It is legally binding for the duration of the contract.
Do I have to sign my contract by a certain time?
Yes, your contract must be signed before participating in room selection or getting assigned a room. If you are 18+ years old, you may sign the contract electronically via your myHousing account. If you are under 18, you are required to have a parent or guardian co-sign on the contract if you are under the age of 18.
How long is the contract valid?
The contract is for the entire academic year, September – June or remainder thereof if you contract during the year. There is no single-term contract option.
Should I still sign my contract, even if I want to change my room?
Yes! The contract is not for a specific hall and room, but rather for a space in our residence hall. You should still sign the contract to secure a space in the residence hall. Again, we are committed to providing you with housing that will help you succeed in your academic endeavors.
What if I am leaving OSU-Cascades or moving off-campus in the middle of the year and need to cancel my contract?
You will complete the Housing Cancellation form in the myHousing portal. Direct any questions to our Residential Education and Housing staff about this process.
What will my contract cancellation fee be?
Residential Education and Housing offers a full-year contract, beginning in September and ending in June. Students who arrive during the academic year are offered a contract for the remainder of the year. Details on the cancellation policy can be found in Section 6 of the Room and Dining Contract.
If I want to move to a different room do I need to sign another contract?
No, the contract is not for a specific hall and room, but rather for a space somewhere within the residence hall. By signing the contract you secure a space to live somewhere on campus. If you would like to change rooms during the year you are welcome to submit a room change request via your MyHousing account.
Do I have to have a dining plan while living on campus?
Yes, it is required to have a dining plan while living on campus.
How do I change my dining plan?
You are welcome to modify your dining plan by emailing [email protected] You can move your plan down to a smaller plan for the first three weeks of any term; and up to a higher plan at any time.
When do Fall 2021 classes start? When can I move in?
Classes begin Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Move-in will be the weekend prior to the start of classes for first time residents of the hall. More specifics will be available toward the end of summer.
Do I have to move in the day my residence hall opens?
It is recommended in order to get all of the information and orientation needed in order to start the academic year most prepared.
Can I check-in early?
You are welcome to check in early if you have a viable reason and have made prior arrangements with our staff to do so. However, if you want to arrive early to campus simply because it works better for your schedule that will not be allowed. If you need to arrive to campus early due to a prior engagement with a University Sponsored event, please email [email protected]
Where do I go to check-in?
Go the Residential Education and Housing office on the first floor of the OSU-Cascades Residence Hall to check-in.
Where do I check-in if I arrive after the designated check-in times?
Students arriving after their scheduled move-in day must check-in with the on-duty Resident Assistant (RA). The RA on-duty can be reached by calling the posted cell phone number on the hall doors. We encourage students to arrive during designated time whenever possible, however you will only be keyed into your room. The next morning, residents must formally check in to receive their permanent room key.
Can I stay in my room during a break period i.e. winter break?
The residence hall will remain open during all breaks. Break housing is included in all room and board rates. There is no dining plan option for break periods, but limited dining options are available on campus at those times. Students scheduled to stay over breaks are encouraged to add to their Orange Cash account, if they would like to eat on campus during the break or continue to use their term meal plan if money is still on it. The next term’s meal plan dollars will not be available for use until the start of the next term. Students must sign up for break so that our Residential Education and Public Safety staff are aware of who will be in the building and we will be able to best serve students over the break. To sign up simply go to the myHousing portal and select “Break Housing”. All residents can leave their belongings in their rooms during break periods, as long as their Room and Dining Contract is current.
What appliances are allowed in my room?
Blenders, electrical can openers, fans, televisions (not wall mounted), lamps (incandescent only, no more than 60 watts) are allowed in your residence hall room. Microwaves are only allowed in the room if the appliance is part of the MicroFridge® set (a specific brand available from any online retailers for sale and for rent) and uses “one plug” technology, and is not kept in confined areas (i.e. closets) and is UL Listed.
The following items are allowed granted they are UL Listed, have a double insulated, three prong cord, and have an automatic shutoff: clothes irons, coffee makers, hot pots, rice cookers (only to be used in the kitchen), hair iron, refrigerators (Energy Star rated, 3.1 cubic feet or smaller, plus 11 amps or less, not kept in confined areas). For the complete list of items that are allowed please look here.
What items are prohibited?
Due to health and safety concerns and facility capacity issues, there are a number of appliances that are not allowed in the residence halls. Some, not all of the prohibited items are, air conditioners, barbecues, fog, smoke or haze machines, hookahs and hookah smoking accessories, halogen and lava lamps, crockpots or slow cookers, etc. To see a complete list of all prohibited items, please look here.
Am I allowed to bring any sort of animals/pets into my room?
Student residents may not have pets in any residential building, with the exception of fish kept in an aquarium no larger than 10 gallons. Other exceptions to this policy are granted for students who have approval from Disability Access Services. Fish kept as pets in the residential buildings must remain in their aquariums at all times. No gravel is allowed down the drains in the sinks, showers, or toilets. If you notice stray animals in or around the living groups, please notify a staff member so that the animal can be appropriately assisted or relocated. You must not abuse, feed, or bring the animal into any University building.
How do I set up the internet in my room?
All residence hall rooms have a wired network connection and most all have wireless coverage. We recommend bringing a network cable to connect to the wired network, even if you plan on using wireless. Wired connections are faster, more secure, and more reliable than wireless. We do not allow the use of wireless routers as they may interfere with OSU Secure and OSU Access wireless coverage.
I want to move out. How do I do this?
Visit this informational page and follow the steps to move out from your space on campus.
What if I moved out of my room without telling the housing staff?
If possible, you will want to return to campus to schedule an appointment to meet and discuss your moving out with them. If you do not meet with them you have the potential to be charged the $50.00 improper moving out fee.
What does a clean room entail?
First, you will want to remove all of your personal belongings from your room. Take out your trash and recycling to the appropriate receptacles. Ensure all original furniture is in the room. You are responsible for all missing or broken furniture. Completely clean your room i.e. wipe surfaces down, floor is swept or vacuumed and mopped, closet and dresser are emptied and wiped down, room door, ceiling and walls are free of tacks, tape, adhesive strips, moon/stars/comets, trash and recycling bins have been emptied and are clean inside.
What happens to my mail when I move out?
Mail is held for up to one week after your checkout date, and is forwarded for 30 days. Your mail will be returned to sender, so please update your address with the various companies and people from whom you receive mail. Be sure to update your mailing address at Student Online Services as soon as you know your new address.
If you filled out a Change of Address with the US Postal Service in the fall, you can cancel it within one year at the post office. However, the USPS will not forward mail to a residence from a business address like OSU-Cascades, so a new Change of Address is not an option.
What if I want to appeal any of the charges housing has put onto my account after my moving out?
If you believe that you have been charged incorrectly or would like to appeal the charges for Housing and Dining, you will need to submit a Housing Petition of Financial Appeal found on the myHousing portal. Please keep in mind the petition must be submitted within 45 days of the original charge and will need to provide documentation that you believe is relevant to your cases. You also cannot appeal charges that have not been put onto your account. The committee will meet within 30 days of your submitted petition and will render their decision to you after the meeting via your ONID email.
My roommate moved out; can I spread out my personal belongings since I am the only one living there?
Unfortunately, no. If you decide to spread out your personal belongings so that you occupy more than half of the room you run the risk of being charged an increased room rate. Please keep all of your personal belongings on your side of the room. This allows for any new potential roommates to feel welcome and comfortable when they arrive to the room. If, however, your room has been deemed not ready for a new roommate you have the potential of having your room rate increase. Once your room has been deemed not ready for a new roommate your room rate will change to a double as single.
I am moving onto campus during the middle of the academic year. How long will my contract be for?
If you move onto campus during the academic year your contract will be from the day you sign it and move on campus until the end of the academic year in June.
If I move onto campus during the middle of a term is my room rate pro-rated?
Yes. There are a certain number of days of occupancy in each term therefore the later you move onto campus the fewer days you will be paying for that term. At the beginning of the next term your rate will be the amount posted on the rate sheet given your room type.
International student concerns
What if I can’t find my food?
Dining Services has many dining options throughout campus, including vegan and vegetarian, gluten-free, and Halal. For more information on specialty dining options, or to meet with our nutritionist to find dining options that meet your needs, visit the Nutrition page
I’m an international student, when can I move in?
International students may have orientation beginning prior to campus move-in dates. Students who need to arrive early to campus for orientation can move in one day prior to the start of orientation. Contact Residential Education and Housing if you have questions, [email protected]
As an international student, will my appliances work?
All residence space has standard North American outlets with 120 volts. An adaptor and/or converter may be needed for items (computer, hair dryer, etc.) purchased outside of the United States. To see a list of appliances that are allowed in the residence space, see this list.
What if I don’t get along with my roommate?
Many first year college students have never had a roommate before. A great roommate match takes effort from both people. As long as you and you roommate communicate well and discuss issues ahead of time, such as schedules, cleanliness of the room, and visitors, you will find that having a roommate is not a bad thing (in fact, it can even be a great thing). However, if you discover that you and your roommate can’t resolve your conflicts, find a staff member in your Residence Hall. These trained individuals are available to assist in solving conflicts.
Can I live with my friend?
Sure. It is important to live with someone you are comfortable with; but living with someone you may not know too well can be a great learning experience. Living with someone you already know coming in might hinder your opportunities to meet new people.
What if I have a specific medical condition that requires me to live in a certain environment?
If you have a specific medical condition that would require you to live in a certain environment, you will need to fill out a “Disability and Dietary Accommodations” request form which can be found on your myHousing portal. You also will need to fill out an application with Disability Access Services (DAS) as early as possible in order to receive the full benefits of the service. DAS can be reached at (541) 737-4098. Requests for single rooms based solely on a desire to have a “quiet, undisturbed place to study” will not be granted.
Can my therapy/service animal stay with me in my room?
Yes, however you will need to submit a “Disability and Dietary Accommodations” request via your MyHousing. You will also need to fill out an application with Disability Access Services (DAS) as early as possible in order to receive the full benefits of the service. DAS can be reached at (541) 737-4098.

Eagles Answer the Cornerback Question by Signing FA Steven Nelson
There were concerns, to say the least, on who would play on the other side of Slay in a division stocked with wide receivers especially in Dallas, where Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup may be the best trio in the NFL.
The Giants loaded up at the receiver spot in the offseason, signing Kenny Golladay and drafting Kadarius Toney in the first round.
Avonte Maddox worked at outside CB last year but is better suited for the slot or even perhaps safety.
Now, the Eagles have their two starting cornerbacks heading into training camp, which begins Tuesday with players expected to report. The first practice is set for Wednesday at 10 a.m.
In order to keep their roster at 90, the Eagles had to release defensive tackle Willie Henry to make room for Nelson.
With Nelson on board, Maddox can move to a more natural position and also let rookie fourth-round pick Zech McPhearson percolate at his own pace and not be rushed into action.
Nelson, 28, is a former third-round pick out of Oregon State of the Kansas City Chiefs. He played four seasons in KC then joined the Steelers, for whom he played the last two years.
Pittsburgh released Nelson for salary camp reasons. He was due to make $8.5M this season.
It is the second straight year the Eagles have signed a free agent from Pittsburgh. Last year, they signed defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who big things are expected from in his second year in Philadelphia.
Nelson has seven career interceptions. His only two last season came against Carson Wentz when the Eagles lost in Pittsburgh. Wentz’s new team, the Indianapolis Colts, isn’t on this year’s schedule.
That Nelson was still available at this stage of the offseason is somewhat surprising given his durability and ability, but whatever the reason for that, the Eagles should be happy to have the answer to one of their biggest offseason questions answered.

The folk group of the pop dance ensemble “Dens-Hall-State” was created in 1991. Head Tatiana Petrovna Krenitskaya
The honorary title “People’s collective of amateur artistic creativity” was first awarded to the pop dance ensemble “Dens-Hall-State” in 1998.

90,000 Sheep Rock and American Ranch at John Day Fossil Beds
Oregon, the state of volcanoes and redwood, looks the same green at all times.Wherever you go, everything is buried in the green of tall trees. From above, from an airplane, it certainly looks fantastic! However, this view of the state as a kingdom of forests and beavers is fundamentally wrong. In the southeast of Oregon there is High desert . How it differs from the deserts familiar to us like the Mojave, it was imperative to figure it out.

Badlands – bad lands in Oregon
In America, the area where nothing grows is called bad lands (Badlands).After all, it is impossible to grow anything here except grass for hay. However, it is here that numerous secluded ranches are located. But tourists don’t come to Badlands to watch cows graze or sheep shear, right?
Neighborhood with a cascade of volcanoes could not pass in vain for this region. Volcanoes have always intervened in the course of history and changed it fatally. So it happened in a glorious place in the southeast of Oregon, which is now called bad land and even a mountain desert, and was once a blooming tropical garden.Another eruption covered everything around with ash, and life changed in the blink of an eye for all the inhabitants here.
Volcanoes do more than just destroy. They also save. After all, tree species frozen in lava, animals and God knows what else remain forever saved in the time file. Now we modern people can come to Oregon and find that redwood did not always grow here. At first it was the kingdom of tropical plants. Fossils are found everywhere and in great numbers.
And the first people here were the Sahaptin Indians.And who is John Day, after whom this wonderful place is named? This is a man from the eastern United States who once passed by, fought with the Indians by the river, escaped, and then brought good and development to Oregon. Both the river and the city are named after him. But he has nothing to do with the colored hills of bad lands. Maybe he didn’t even see them!
In Oregon, part of the mountainous desert with fossilized fossil remains of plants and animals is under government protection and is called the John Day fossil beds National monument.It consists of several territories, between which you need to move by car. Some are located nearby along one track (Blue basin unit, Sheep rock unit, Foree Area and visitor center), but Painted Hills (Painted hills unit) stands to the side. We visited this national monument on our road trip around the United States. And in this article we will tell you about a historic American ranch located nearby in Sheep Mountain.
Sheep Rock Unit
This wonder is located off Route 19, which branches off from Route 26.Sheep, apparently, was named after a ranch where sheep were raised and which was built right behind a beautiful mountain. Or the shape of the mountain is a bit like a sheep. In any case, Sheep Mountain is worth visiting, because the nature around it is simply beautiful, it is not in vain that settlers settled here and began to raise sheep.
Information about the park John Day Fossil Beads
- The park is open from 10.00 to 17.00
- Admission is free.
- We have written a detailed article on the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.In it you will find information about the park and how to get to it and what you can see in it.
- The latest information about the park can be viewed on the official website of the US National Parks.
What to see at Sheep Mountain:
- Ash-strewn hills tell us about what happened about 40 million years ago and are a rather unexpected alternative to the familiar landscapes typical of farms. The Visitor Center has a lot of information about the history of this region and about what our planet was like many million years ago in the Age of Mammals.
- The Kant family house-museum and the historical sheep farm – the real American ranch .
- Walking along the River trail is very pleasant and simple. There and back – 1 km. The trail starts at the parking lot. Apple trees grow there, and on the other side you can see Sheep Mountain and colorful hills. They seem to be hiding here, not showing their true beauty.
- But Sheep rock overlook trail starts at the Kant house and is also not long (a little less than a kilometer in both directions).At its end there is a beautiful view of the mountain and the valley.

House of the Kant family
Now it is a house-museum, and next to it there is an old ranch where you can learn how sheep were sheared before.We slowly wandered along the John Day River, feasted on the apples that grow on the territory. Now it’s time to visit.
James Kant, a rancher, was born in Scotland and left at a young age, moving to South America where he raised horses and mules. And in 1905 he arrived in New York and immediately set off on the road to Oregon. At this time, southeastern Oregon was already slightly inhabited by Scottish immigrants. Kant hired a sheep keeper. Three years later, Elizabeth Grant, James’ sweetheart, arrived and they got married.And two years later, they saved enough money to buy out the ranch.
Their home became a popular destination for travelers traveling from Daville to the Columbia River. James and Elizabeth were renowned for their hospitality. The sheep farm flourished, and the business even survived the Depression and World War II. And in 1975, the Kant family sold their vastly expanded land to national parks.
Now everyone has the opportunity to get acquainted with how the family of settlers lived on the American ranch.

Painted Hills @ Painted Hills – Oregon in Russian
Some hills look like intricate cakes – they are so curly, beautiful and ornate.Others, like a two-faced Janus, have several colors at once – you look at it from one side – it is definitely red, but you should go around it and look at it from the other – and it is yellow-gold!
The colors of the hills mix and change shades, it depends both on the time of year and day, and on the weather conditions. Under the influence of moisture evaporation from the surface of the hills, for example, after rain, instead of the usual red color, you can be surprised to see reflections of pastel pink and instead of the usual yellow – shades of gold.The color of the hills looks especially contrasting and juicy at sunset hours.
There are several hiking trails on the territory of the reserve. Each of them has its own parking area and its own unique features. Along the way, information stands were installed explaining the geological and natural processes that have taken place here for many centuries.
If you prefer panoramic bird’s-eye views, the Carrol Rim Trail is waiting for you – it rises to an altitude of more than 400 feet (120 meters) to the observation deck of Mount Sutton and is more than one and a half miles (2.6 kilometers ).To visit it, it is especially recommended to choose the morning or evening hours, when it is not so hot.
Another sightseeing route Painted Hills Overlook Trail – easier, without uphill climbs. Its length is only half a mile (0.8 kilometers).
The remaining three route options are very short, only a quarter mile (400 meters), but each of them is unique in its own way and is recommended to visit.
Painted Cove Trail runs partly along a comfortable wooden path just an arm’s length away from the incredible hills.
Route Leaf Hill Trail – unique for its high concentration of rocks with imprints of ancient flora. Paleontological research is ongoing here. Particularly striking and impressive finds are on display at the Paleontological Center on Sheep Mountain.
Route Red Hill Trail leads to an unusual hill of very rich, deep red color, a local landmark.
