Rare Video as Couple Flees Oregon Fires

Unfiltered Raw videos set to Amazing Grace capture 1st person accounts from the horror of Oregon's 2020 Fires

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Sept. 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Renowned American composer, World Maestro Colin O'Donohoe and his new Turkish bride Ceren O'Donohoe had just arrived in Marcola to live and work throughout the fall. They chose Marcola Oregon after a year fraught with tragedy and adventure. They had chosen this area for the natural beauty and peaceful environment.

Three weeks into their peaceful relocation they awoke to a surreal horror. At first they were stunned by the orange sky. Since they've been living in Mongolia, Brazil, and Turkey over the past year, they thought perhaps Oregon has red skies in the fall. Their landlord quickly told them it was not normal and that they should prepare to flee.

Quickly packing up their home studio into their van, the couple fled for the west coast. Ash continued snowing down on them all the way to Florence. They captured video of their escape and beautifully combined it with peaceful video they had taken before the horrendous fires.

The result is a unique glimpse into one personal account of the Oregon fires. The immensely vast size of the fire becomes impossible to comprehend without accounts like this reminding us how important each one of us is in our response to tragedy.

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Sep 28, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Sep 28, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Sep 28, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
