HEADLINES

  • Paddling Blind - The Garden Island (HI) - February 22: Vic Allen hasn't let his blindness keep him from doing things he loves... like paddling solo canoes in Hawaii... "Kauai wasn't used to seeing blind people paddle," Vic says. "But now they know I'm just a regular guy who loves to paddle." This is how Vic Allen lives his life — positive, gregarious, exuberant.

  • Hospital Helps Kayaker Overcome Traumatic Injury - KOLO-TV8 News Reno (NV) - February 19: The people who work at Shriners Hospitals are nothing short of miracle workers. Jason Craig and his family can attest to that because they helped him recover from injuries sustained in an accident that he was lucky to survive... If you saw Jason today you'd probably never know that he was once told by doctors he'd never walk again. In 2011, he was kayaking when he went over a 30 foot drop, landing on a rock below shattering his pelvis and fracturing his spine. At the time of Jason's accident he was one of the top freestyle kayakers in the world and the reigning junior world champion. At the young age of 17 he had a lot to look forward to, but based on the severity of his injuries, doctors told him otherwise.

  • Revised Bill pushes for Paddling in Grand Teton, Yellowstone - The Spokesman Review (WA) - February 18: Legislation has been introduced in Congress that would allow paddle-powered watercraft on additional rivers and streams in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks... Yellowstone and Grand Teton's decades-old paddling "bans" are not absolute but do cover most waters in the parks. Hand-propelled watercraft are allowed on some Grand Teton park lakes, as well as the Snake River. In Yellowstone, river paddling is now allowed only in the channel between Lewis and Shoshone lakes.
