Inspired by their real-life struggles as a farming family in the Goldendale area, George and Ann Rohrbacher created The Farming Game in 1979.Though Rohrbacher and his wife, Ann, have since handed the manufacturing off to a Canadian company, their business, The Weekend Farmer Co., still takes phone orders. The son of a research biochemist who lived in college towns, Rohrbacher had planned to study anthropology in graduate school after graduating from the University of Denver.But in the early 1970s, he and his young Seattleite bride yearned for the rural life and delayed those plans to became caretakers for a duck-hunting club, renting the club's cabin in Toppenish. He worked for a short time as a teachers' aide at Wilson Junior High School in Yakima and learned haying and cowboying from an American Indian named Swede.Ann worked at the former Seafirst Bank in Union Gap."If there was anything worth fighting for, it's this damn place," Rohrbacher said.Rohrbacher later adapted the game to the building industry, creating The Construction Game.His high profile landed him an appointment to the state Senate in 1988 as a Republican representing what was then the 17th district.But Democrat Dean Sutherland of Vancouver beat him narrowly in the general election.Rohrbacher served for several years as a commissioner of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.Claim to fame: Invented The Farming Game with his wife, Ann; served briefly as appointed state senator for the 15th district in 1988.Ties to Yakima Valley: Started his farming life in Toppenish
