Goldie Hawn Fights Timber Name
Sep. 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.''
