Goldie Hawn Fights Timber Name

September 26, 2000

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ Goldie Hawn wasn’t laughing after the Bureau of Land Management named a timber sale for her.

The bureau said it was trying to be creative when it named a 100-acre timber sale near the headwaters of Fawn and Evans creeks the ``Goldie Fawn.″

Hawn was told of the sale by an Oregon conservation group and complained, with a spokeswoman saying the actress didn’t want to see ``beautiful timber land destroyed in her name.″

The bureau changed the name of the sale to ``Fawn Creek,″ and this week said it will be more careful about naming timber sales.

``We’re sticking to drainages and creeks from now on,″ said Trish Hogervorst, a spokeswoman for the BLM’s Salem office.

Hawn, 54, played a ditsy blonde in the late ’60s variety show, ``Laugh-In.″ She won an Oscar for best supporting actress in ``Cactus Flower.″
