Deschner, founder of Salt Lick Auction, receives award for fundraising


Whit Deschner of Baker City, founder of the Great Salt Lick Contest and Auction, a fundraiser for Parkinson’s Disease research, was named a recipient of a 2014 Crystal Award Tuesday by the Willamette Valley Development Officers.

The annual event, in which people enter actual salt licks “sculptured” by cattle and wildlife, has raised more than $50,000 for the Oregon Health Sciences University’s Parkinson’s Center.

Deschner, who formerly lived near Sparta east of Baker City, has the disease.

He will be honored at the Portland Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthrophy Awards for Excellence in Fundraising on Sept. 18 in Portland.

Deschner will receive the Community Hero award.

Benjamin Merrill and R. Mack Augenfeld have collected the required signatures, Yeaton said.
 
Four others who could be on the November ballot are incumbent Councilor Roger Coles, along with Randy Daugherty, a former councilor, and James Thomas and Rustin Smith. 
 
Four of the seven positions on the City Council are up for election this fall.
 
The incumbents for those slots are Dennis Dorrah, Roger Coles, Barbara Johnson and Clair Button.
