Fund established for ex-Columbian columnist Hovde

The Columbian

Vancouver resident Dina Elizabeth Hovde, who worked at The Columbian for a decade as an editorial writer, sustained serious head injuries in a Jan. 11 skiing accident on Mount Hood in Oregon.

Hovde, who was wearing a helmet, remains in serious condition at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.

Hovde, 39, lives in west Vancouver with her husband, Ryan, and their two young sons.

An account has been established at iQ Credit Union to help the family defray medical expenses. Donations may be made at any branch to the “DE Hovde Fund,” account number 194436. Or checks, payable to the “DE Hovde Fund,” may be mailed to iQ Credit Union, PO Box 1739, Vancouver, WA 98668.

Hovde stopped writing regular columns for The Columbian in 2008, after which she signed a contract to write columns for The Oregonian.

Hovde writes using her middle name, Elizabeth.

During her years at The Columbian, Hovde won several regional Society of Professional Journalists awards, including two first-place finishes in editorial commentary in 2003 and ’04.

She is a 1996 graduate of Western Washington University.
