Peter Pan Seafoods

    For as long as fishermen have dipped their nets into the sea, the oceans have yielded their bounty to the world. But not until recently has the world recognized the real scope and potential of that treasure and the responsibility involved in maintaining it. Through decades of experience, investment, planning and commitment, we have harvested the promise of the sea, while acting as the ocean's caretaker. Today, we continue that tradition, bringing that harvest home to your business, your family, to you.Fresh Cut
   Today Peter Pan Seafoods is one of America's best-known names in wild Alaskan Seafood products. Throughout the food service industries and within the retail trades, Peter Pan has achieved a hard won reputation built on the quality and sales appeal of its frozen, canned and fresh seafood.
   Peter Pan Seafoods stands today as one of the leading Alaskan seafood producers, working its way up from more unexpected beginnings in 1914. That year saw the introduction of a canned salmon brand, Double Q [TM].
   It was wild Alaskan salmon taken by an antique fish trap method and "marketed" for the princely sum of 9 cents per can. From that point, Peter Pan's Double Q brand canned salmon went on to become one of today's retail market leaders in canned salmon. Perhaps it was because the "Double Q" stood for quality and quantity, two ideas which Peter Pan has never let go.
   The Alaska fishery today accounts for more than 40 percent of the entire world’s seafood harvest. Peter Pan Seafoods remains one of the dominant players catching, harvesting, processing, and marketing of Salmon, Halibut, Pollock, Cod, and Crab from the pristine waters of Alaska. From 9 cents per can to multi-millions in annual sales, Peter Pan has charted a course straight to a marketing leadership in the United States as well as in Asia and Europe.

    The discovery of a 21-year-old woman’s body on a remote, forested mountain gave a terrible answer to the family, friends and church members who worked so hard to find out what happened to her.But it remained unclear Saturday what information led police to a neighbor and acquaintance who quickly emerged as a suspect in her death last week.
    Jonathan Holt, 24, of Gresham, a resident of the apartment complex where Whitney Heichel lived with her husband, was arrested for investigation of aggravated murder Friday night, about the same time her body was found on Larch Mountain, east of Gresham. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
    Heichel reportedly left her apartment Tuesday morning for her job as a Starbucks barista. She never showed up, and three hours later, her husband, Clint, called police. He told investigators he tried to reach Whitney multiple times after her boss alerted him that she never arrived for her 7 a.m. shift.
    Police said Heichel’s ATM card was used at a nearby Troutdale gas station at 9:14 a.m. Tuesday. Two hours later, family and friends discovered her sport utility vehicle in a Wal-Mart parking lot with the passenger side window smashed.
    Some of her items were found in a trash bin nearby, and a child later found her cellphone in a field that lies between the gas station and the Wal-Mart.
    Police began searching Larch Mountain on Wednesday, believing that Heichel’s SUV was driven there, and discovered her body Friday night. The family’s search team had discovered a license plate and other “items of interest” on Larch Mountain, police Chief Craig Junginger said.
    Holt first came to their attention Wednesday, when he volunteered to be interviewed, Junginger said, and two later interviews revealed inconsistencies in his statements. He submitted to fingerprint and DNA analysis, and that helped tie him to the SUV, the chief said.
    It was not immediately clear if Holt had obtained a lawyer. He remained held without bail at the Multnomah County Detention Center.
    Police did not respond to requests for comment Saturday and said in an email that no further information would be forthcoming.
    Jim Vaughn, a family spokesman, addressed the Friday night news conference, thanking police for their commitment in the case.
    “Whitney was a very loving person,” he added. “She was warm, she was kind, she was everything you would want in a friend, relative, spiritual fellow worshiper.”
    He asked for privacy for the family, saying “our loss and heartache is too much to bear right now.”
    “To say that this case brought fear and anxiety to the community is a vast understatement,” Gresham Mayor Sam Bemis said. “As we watched these events unfold, Whitney in many ways represented all of our wives, daughters, sisters, friends and loved ones.”


    With two games left and too few players, the Riverside football team in Boardman, Ore., has called it a season.    The Pirates started the year in a precarious position with just 14 players on their roster. They canceled their season opener against McLoughlin because some players had not gotten in enough practices, but they were on the field the next week against Irrigon.
    The fate of the season became clear, however, after two players missed a game because of concussions and two others quit.
    "You can't play football with 11, 12 kids," Riverside athletic director Clair Costello said.
   The Pirates were supposed to play tonight at Burns and Nov. 2 at home against Vale. Both games have been forfeited, so Riverside ends its first season under coach Kyle Napiontek with a 1-6 overall record and an 0-4 mark in the 3A Eastern Oregon League.
    Costello said the school is trying to decide whether to go with a league schedule or an independent schedule in 2013.
    "We're definitely gonna play football next year," he said. "We don't know which way we'll go right now, but we'll go some way."

    There's nothing quite like salmon fishing on the Rogue River. The finest Oregon King Salmon and steelhead fishing vacations start right here in Gold Beach. If you love the great outdoors, you'll love what the Rogue River has to offer.
    The federally designated Wild and Scenic Rogue River meets the Pacific Ocean at Gold Beach, just 50 miles north of the California border. The famous Rogue River is home to jet boat rides as well as river rafting trips.
    When you plan your Oregon fishing vacation, head for the Rogue! The Rogue River is home to many varieties of salmon, year-round.Oregon fall king salmon, Spring Chinook Salmon, Summer Chinook Salmon and Summer Steelhead, Coho Salmon (also known as Silver Salmon), and Winter Steelhead.
    Unbeknownst to most, salmon run in Oregon's streams 12 months out of the year. Although there are clear peak periods to participate in Oregon salmon fishing opportunities, an angler must always be prepared to do battle with Oregon's most sought-after species.
    Starting the year is Oregon's famous spring chinook salmon. The average angler expends an average of 21 hours fishing for every spring chinook retained. Thankfully, with a professional Oregon salmon fishing guides, the average is significantly better. But once you catch one of these fish for a barbecue of only your closest friends, you'll understand why it's worth the wait. This species of chinook is so laden with healthy omega-3 fat, that it practically deep fat fries itself on your grill. This salmon is the finest tasting on the entire West Coast, and it's available six months out of the year from Oregon waters.
    Summer brings on some special Oregon salmon fishing opportunities. Coast wide, huge numbers of chinook and coho salmon are gorging themselves on massive schools of baitfish in the ocean. Here, a Oregon salmon fishing guides and charters have an opportunity to put you onto schools of actively feeding salmon which usually means easy limits of high-quality fish. With head spinning fast action, the guide has to make sure they have ample bait supplies as 20 to 50 violent strikes constitute an average day.
