Owner, Scott’s Cycle and Sports
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
I was born in Hermiston.
What is your favorite place to eat in the area?
Ixtapa. I like their camarones a la crema.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Riding bikes and working on my house.
What book did you last read, and did you enjoy it?
The Coming Plague. It’s about diseases — it basically lays out how the human race will die. It’s kind of a buzz-kill, but interesting.
What app or website do you use most other than Facebook?
What surprises you about Hermiston?
There wasn’t really a lot of money here in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, so there’s not really a hierarchy here — everyone’s treated more or less the same, unlike some other places.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I wouldn’t mind going back to Turkey. I was 14 when I went, and there’s a lot of things you miss. There, or the Czech Republic.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
I don’t know if I can put that in the paper!
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
I’m slowly working on remodeling a house.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
