"On behalf of the North Central regional Transportation Planning Organization (NCRTPO), I am pleased to notify you that the City of Tonasket has been awarded Transportation Enhancements funds in the amount of $126,500 for the `Whitcomb Avenue (US97) Pedestrian Upgrade' project," a letter from Jeff Wilkens, executive director of the Wenatchee Valley Transportation Council, states. "The Board felt this was a very worthwhile project." The funds from this grant will be used to build Americans with Disabilities Act ramps at the sidewalk intersections along Whitcomb Ave. and to install crosswalk awareness lights for the crosswalks over Whitcomb Ave. from North Valley Hospital to Second Street. "I talked to Kurt Danison, who is working on the prospectus which will need to be sent to the Department of Transportation for approval," Alice Attwood, city clerk, said. In other city news, the council is once again supporting a citywide Clean-Up to be held on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Tonasket City Shop where the recycling bins are near Chief Tonasket Park. Items that will not be accepted are wet paint, oil, tires and hazardous materials. Also, no appliances accepted this year.

Coalition partners with Incumbent Sheriff Frank Support Center against rural Rogers has `nothing to hide' Candidate Dave domestic violence Yarnell speaking Federal grant will fund 18-month program By Gary A. DeVon Managing Editor OMAK � The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence is partnering with the Support Center and three other Eastern Washington agencies to help address domestic violence in rural areas, especially among migrant workers. The Coalition has received an 18-month federal grant to enhance services for victims of domestic violence with immigration issues, according to Margo Amelong, executive director of the Support Center, based in Omak. "We think it is wonderful and hope to continue with the program even after the grant is gone. Perhaps it will be refunded when it is over, but we can't rely on that," Amelong said. "We chose the Support Center to be part of the program because it has to do with domestic violence and sexual assault as they tend to hit the rural community especially hard," said Summer Carrick, with the Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The group is especially looking at how domestic violence and sexual assaults affect women and children in the farm worker community. "Farm workers are often far from home, their families are in another country, there are language barriers and they often work for low wage jobs. This can make it harder to get access to what they need in the way of help," Carrick said, adding that the group chose to work with the Support Center because of the inroads it has already made with the rural and farm worker communities. Often times the victims of abuse do not understand their legal rights, according to Carrick, adding that the workers are sometimes invisible to people outside rural communities who do not understand where their food comes from. "We are trying to make them visible," she said. "A lot of the work is seasonal and what they do in three or four months is save m o n ey t h at i s su p p o s e d to last through the winter," said Mary Davis, with the Support Center. "When there is no work or lack of money we often see more problems. People who are victims of domestic abuse or sexual assault feel they can't afford to get away from the cause." D av i s s a i d t h e ty p i c a l farm worker might make lots of stops as they follow t h e c r op s a n d m ay h ave a network of friendships along the way, but regularly find themselves in places where they are with people they are unfamiliar with and don't know who to turn to. "Right now we are trying to put together a video and photo presentation to use as a model for other rural areas," said Carrick. "We plan on going out to the farm labor housing and shaking hands and asking what the stresses are, ask what their needs are because domestic violence is so pervasive." The women said that Latina women are two to four times more likely to be murdered in this country and not just by Latino men. "Language access is a big hurdle... they might try to get a protection order but do not understand how to go about it," adds Gabriela Alor, also with the Coalition. The women say that farm workers can often develop strong networks and that through this program they'd like to support the natural leaders and promote the women that people go to. "We can't hire enough advocates, we can't build enough shelters," Carrick said. "We must engage our communities." Davis adds that domestic violence and sexual assault victims can also include men and children. "For men it can be harder t o a d m i t ... i t c a n r e a l ly expose your vulnerability. If we say family violence it hits harder because our family is our home and we want to protect it at whatever cost." at next Chamber meeting along with Charlene Groomes By Emily Hanson Staff Writer TONASKET - Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers spoke at the regular Tonasket Chamber of Commerce meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 14, stating that he has nothing to hide. He began his speech to the chamber by talking about his family life. Rogers said he has been married to his wife, Minette, whom he met in high school, for 32 years. They have two children and five grandchildren. The Rogers family moved to Okanogan in December 1983 and he worked for the Omak Police Department. In 2002, Rogers was elected sheriff and has held the position since. "I'm proud of what we've done with the sheriff 's department," Rogers said. "The men and women in the department have a ton of great ideas." Rogers said he runs the department with two main rules. "You have to have fun and enjoy your job or it'll kill you," he said. "Second, the department works for you, not for itself." During Rogers' career as sheriff, he said the department has brought in $21 million into the county through grants and fundraising to run their special department programs. Despite having a Photo by Emily Hanson Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers spoke at the Tonasket Chamber of Commerce meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 14, stating that he has nothing to hide. budget of $3.5 million, with $2.9 million going to salaries and benefits, the department has never been over-budget with Rogers as sheriff and in fact returns between $70,000 and $150,000 to the county each year. "I'm not going to sit around and whine," he said. "You make do with what you've got. I'm open with the press and anyone with questions. I've got nothing to hide." Sheriff candidate Dave Yarnell will be speaking at the Tuesday, Sept. 28 meeting along with Okanogan County Clerk candidate Charlene Groomes.

The Peace Festival was held as a memorial for the fallen soldier who inspired the event: Stephen McManners, U.S. Air Force, the youngest brother of Paulie Richardson of Conconully. By Emily Hanson Staff Writer TONASKET - The annual Community Cultural Center's Flea Market/Rummage Sale will be this Friday, Sept. 24 and Saturday, Sept. 25 open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. "There is still table space available," River Jones, executive director, said. "They are $10 for a six-foot table for both days." The flea market/rummage sale is held every year in order to raise money for operations, essentially helping to keep the CCC doors open. Jones said some of the best sellers are books, jewelry, household items (dishes, pots and pans, working kitchen appliances), craft items, artwork and other quality items. "We will accept clean, good quality clothing and shoes as well," she said, asking that these items have no stains or tears. Raffle tickets, sold for $1 each, will be sold to win a traditional quilt made by Jackie Chambers. "The flea market/rummage sale has been a really good way to raise funds for about six years," Jones said. For more information about the sale, contact Jones at (509) 486-1328 or Janet Culp at (509) 486-2061. In other CCC news, the center held their Seventh Annual Peace Festival this past Saturday, Sept. 18. The festival is a memorial for Stephen McManners, U.S. Air Force, the youngest brother of Paulie Richardson of Cononully. "The Veterans for Peace Forum featured veterans from local communities, China Bend, Wenatchee and Tri-Cities who are active in peace and social justice activities in their communities," Rick Gillespie said. "The event also celebrated International Peace Day as it presented a variety of music and dialog from artists and activists, as well as the synchronized Prayer for Peace at 4 p.m. around the earth. This year, Dana Lyons headlined the daylong event, with a concert at 8 p.m. Lyons is internationally known for his collaborations with Jane Goodall, his ballads for the environment and peace and his humor, including an international hit, `Cows with Guns.'" USBP photo Explorers Luke Kindred and Cheyanne Sharpe present unserviceable American Flags to the American Legion Commanders as Border Patrol Agent Michael Pitts reads the proper ceremonial language. Submitted by James Frackelton Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Public Information Officer OROVILLE - Members of the USBP Explorer Post 0023 assisted the American Legion Hodges Post 84 with an American flag disposal ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 11. Th e c e r e m o ny wa s h e l d at the American Legion in Oroville. An advisor and two explorers participated in the ceremony playing key roles in the event. Several American flags that had become unserviceable or faded and worn were respectfully and honorably retired from service by the proper disposal ceremony. People from the community and members of the American Legion were present to pay proper tribute and respect for our nation's flag. It was a proud day to be an American and an awesome experience for the Explorers that participated. After the event, the Explorers conversed with members of the American Legion about their military service and special honors. TONASKET - The Dusty Mountain Pit, approximately four miles up Havillah Road from Tonasket, has recently been temporarily shut down. "The Department of Natural Resources is requiring the Okanogan County Public Works Department to hire a geotechnical engineer to study the slope of the pit to make sure it's safe to work on," Frank Sautell, public works director, said. "That could cost upwards of $40,000$50,000 and money's a little tight right now, so we're going to stay out of the pit for now." Sautell said the pit, which is a maintenance shale rock pit, was used by public works maintenance crews for road work of the whole Tonasket area. Despite the pit being closed, no one has lost their job. The study required by DNR is part of the compliance standards for mines under Washington Code RCW 78.44, which was voted into law by the legislature in 1970 and became law in 1971, John Bromley, DNR assistant state geologist, said. "The threshold requires a permit if an area is mined or disturbed over more than three acres and/or there is a working face, a `high wall', grade of 30 feet high at a 1-1 slope," Bromley explained. In 2007, DNR had a public meeting in Okanogan with Senator Bob Morton, the Okanogan County Commissioners and about 100 people to discuss a new stop work order, which went into effect in 2006 and gives DNR the authority to immediately stop work on unauthorized mining, Bromley said. "Okanogan County, at the time, had some sites that were over three acres and they were concerned it would cost too much to get them into compliance," he said. "We have been working with the county to show them effective reclamation practices and what the requirements are for permits. We've been letting the county decide which mines are viable for going through the permit process."

DeVon Managing Editor OROVILLE � The Okanogan County Tourism Council held their quarterly meeting last Friday, Sept. 16 at the Old Oroville Depot Museum. Borderlands Historical Society members Dorothy Petry and Tillie Porter gave a report on their organization and about the Visitor Information Center which was operated by the Society in its new location at the museum this past summer. "The Visitor Information Center has been a real asset for the museum... people come in for information and stay and look at the museum... it has really added to the tourism in the area," said Petry. She added that records from 2009 show that 1600 people visited the information center when it was still operated by the Oroville Chamber of Commerce on Main Street. She said this year the museum had 3285 visitors by the end of August. The museum gets questions from those studying the local history and looking for other history, like family genealogy. Among the interesting facts about Oroville and the county on a fact sheet the museum gives out was that Oroville had the first gold strike in Washington State at Rich Bar on the Similkameen River; that the first commercial orchard in the state was planted by Okanogan Smith on the east side of Lake Osoyoos and that the first U.S. Flag was flown in Washington State at Fort Okanogan near the confluence of the Okanogan and Columbia rivers. "Some might have come in for the museum and stayed to get other information, or visa versa, but it shows that the center is getting a lot more use," she said. In addition to operating the museum, the old U.S. Customs cabin and the Visitor Information Center, the Historical Society also gives tours, according to Petry and Porter. They talked about the tour the Society gave of the basement of the old Peerless Hotel and how it was supposed to COUNCIL: Next council meeting Sept. 28 Continued from Page 1 ink and toner cartridges, cell phones and iPods." Brush will be also be accepted during the clean-up but sod will not be. The city crew will not be picking up items from homes but elderly and disabled assistance is available if arrangements are made by calling (509) 486-2132. Tonasket Police Chief Robert Burks said the Tonasket Municipal Airport will be closed from Thursday, Sept. 23 through Saturday, Sept. 25 due to the department's hosting of an emergency vehicle training throughout the day on Friday, Sept. 24. Finally, Attwood passed out fliers with official information about the Okanogan Wood Pellet Stove Project, which was "created to encourage homeowners and businesses to trade in old wood and oil stoves and replace them with new, highefficiency wood pellet stoves," the flier states. "Buyers will be provided a voucher of $500 to swap out their old, uncertified wood or oil-burning stoves," the flier continues. "The program, open to all Okanogan residents, will provide vouchers to buyers of high-energy wood pellet stoves if they change out their cur- rent wood stove or oil/propane burner. One voucher is available per family. The vouchers, worth $500, are redeemable at participating pellet-stove retailers if the buyer agrees to recycle their wood or oil stove or, if that is not possible due to impact on the house, disable their stove and provide acceptable confirmation that they live in Okanogan County." High-efficiency wood pellet stoves enjoy a tax credit of 30 percent off the purchase and installation costs, up to $1,500. The next City Council meeting will be on Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. in city hall. Second `Canola in Okanogan County' meeting held at Riverside Photo by Gary DeVon Don Brogan, chairman of Destination Osoyoos and manager of Walnut Beach Resort, talks about tourism in Osoyoos and recent construction of more high-end accommodations at local resort hotels. be haunted. They even passed around a copy of a photo that seemed to show an unexplained object that Porter said was not there when she took the photograph. Petry said there were five known buildings that were supposed to have ghosts, or some unexplained "energy" in them. Don Brogan, chairman of the organization Destination Osoyoos, was introduced as the key speaker for the night by Okanogan County Tourism Council member and past president, Raleigh Chinn. Brogan talked about that groups formation and duties. He said when it was first formed by the City of Osoyoos it was to tasked with both economic and tourist development. Since that time a new city council has taken the economic piece away and now they are primarily in the business of promoting tourism. "I grew up in Oliver, my dad had the Super Valu there. I now live in Osoyoos," said Brogan who manages Walnut Beach Resort. "I've been coming to Oroville since I was eightyears-old." Prior to managing Walnut Beach Resort Brogan he managed the Holiday Inn and it was there that the developers came to him about building a resort. He points to former Mayor Tom Shields as one of the people that had the foresight to organize Destination Osoyoos and task it with economic development. He said DO helped to bring $300 million in property development to the town. "I am really happy with all the changes that have taken place in Osoyoos which were steered by Destination Osoyoos... the town is truly a resort community," said Brogan. The organization, in partnership with the Osoyoos Indian Band and Region A do much to promote tourism to the area. Brogan said the financing for the organization comes from a two percent tax that is levied on accommodation rentals. With this tax the city generates $200,000 to $250,000 a year for tourism promotion, he said. His organization has done such things as give seed money to the Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival and sponsor a Curling Tournament that was broadcast on national television. "Although I might not want to watch curling, it was great to have our own brand emblazoned on the ice for 65,000 viewers to see," he said. He suggested that Oroville's museum and visitor information center inventory all they had to offer because many of the tourists that stay with him at Walnut Beach Resort and elsewhere in Osoyoos are looking for things to do and that places like the museum and other historical sights could bring more tourists to Oroville and Okanogan County. Photo by Pam Leslie Tim King (standing) talks to local farmers and ranchers about adding canola as a cash crop to their current crop rotation. King plans on setting up a temporary, portable canola crusher in Oroville within the next two months and have a permanent crusher operating within six to eight months.

Crusher could be running in Oroville within two months Submitted by Pam Leslie LM Energy LLC RIVERSIDE � The second "Canola in Okanogan County" meeting was held in Riverside at the Mt. Olive Grange Hall in Riverside with 13 people in attendance, attendants coming from as far as Spokane and Lewiston, Idaho. Arnie Marchand, LM Energy LLC, hosted the event, providing introductions and facilitating questions and answers at the end of the meeting. Okanogan County Commissioner candidate Jim Detro also spoke, discussing his experience in resource-based industries and his support of the project. Tim King, president of Carbon Technology Transfer Center LLP, gave a presentation on Canola to the group. John Sheldon, Great Plains Representative for The Camelina Company was unable to attend due to other commitments. Similar to the Chesaw meeting back in July, Tim King presented his plans to bring a canola press to Oroville in order to process surplus canola and camelina seed from neighboring states and provinces. King hopes to engage local farmers and ranchers, providing them the opportunity to add a sustainable cash crop into current rotations. Due to the continued support of citizens and local officials, King's plans for the canola press continue to move forward. He has been busy looking at potential construction sites in Oroville. He has arranged for a portable, temporary crusher that could be up and running within two months, crushing 120 tons of seed per day, while a permanent crushing facility is erected. Once financing for the project is finalized, King anticipates the permanent crusher to be online within six to eight months.

Once you retire, you could choose to do any number of things: travel the world, pursue your hobbies, volunteer or even open a small business or do some consulting. But whichever retirement lifestyle you choose to follow, you will need to know how much you can afford to withdraw each year, how you can stay ahead of inflation and how best to control your investment-related taxes. You may find it easier to accomplish these things if you have a single, unified investment strategy -- and it may be easier to develop such a strategy if you have all your retirement accounts at one place, possibly under the guidance of a single financial advisor. your 401(k) and your traditional IRA. (This requirement does not apply to a Roth IRA.) It's not that hard to calculate these required minimum distributions from a single IRA or a single 401(k), but if you have a mix of these accounts at different places, you might have to do a lot of number crunching. If all your accounts were held at the same place, you may have an easier time. * Less chance of forgetting assets -- You may find it hard to believe, but plenty of people lose track of their 401(k)s, IRAs and other retirement accounts. In fact, the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits lists more than 50,000 individuals who are owed benefits from 401(k)s, profit-sharing plans or IRAs and either can't be reached or don't respond to inquiries. But if you hold all your retirement accounts in one place, you may be less likely to "misplace" them than if you kept them in several different financial institutions.

DeVon Trails like this one, surrounded by the natural beauty of sage covered hills and scrub pine and parallel to the wild Similkameen River, are attractive to a variety of people seeking recreational opportunities. The non-motorized Similkameen Trail will offer hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders a chance to enjoy the great outdoors. As an added bonus, with its historical connection to the Great Northern Railroad and before that a major fur trading route, the Similkameen Trail has a unique history that is bound to attract railroad enthusiasts and history buffs alike. And studies have shown that those who travel to enjoy these types of recreational and historical opportunities often stay to spend money in the local community. The trail, part of a larger trail system being developed by the county, is also a very easy hike and designed to be accessible for people of all levels. Trail users can start at Oroville where a trailhead with parking and restrooms will be developed or park across from Taber's Copper Mountain Vineyard and cross the road to begin by following the recently built portion that skirts around the vineyard and OkanOgan Valley gazette-tribune � September 23, 2010 Opening of local trail a major achievement for Oroville, whole county With the opening of the Similkameen Connector Trail, which follows the former Great Northern Railway route from Oroville to the old Enloe Dam powerhouse, the county and Oroville have created a great achievement for recreation and tourism. winds its way down, crossing a little bridge before the old steel and concrete bridge over the Similkameen. The old bridge has a sturdy new flat concrete deck replacing the old, and in some places rotten, timber one that was not for the faint of heart. The views of this beautiful working vineyard on this leg of the journey will also be a big attraction to visitors from outside of the area. Now it's up to those of us that use the trail to make sure that it is taken care of. We need to ensure that the property of those who are adjacent to the trail is respected and we need to make an effort to keep the trail picked up of litter and remains an attraction to local users and visitors to our area. Oroville, Okanogan County and the Pacific Northwest Trail Association need to be commended for their foresight in developing the trail. They, along with the adjacent property owners who have given easements, the Okanogan County Public Utilities District and groups like the Oroville Chamber of Commerce and the Borderlands Historical Society have a positive vision of what the trail will mean to the area. If you haven't been on the trail before we highly recommend you give it a try and make sure you tell your friends. LeTTeRS To The eDiToR Iraqi War deaths In a prior letter I discussed Iraq war costs. In this letter I will discuss a much more speculative subject: Iraq war deaths. An old axiom states that the first casualty in any war is the truth. Why would Uncle Sugar lie and encourage lies regarding the death toll in Iraq. I believe there are two major reasons. First, we had Saddam executed for the 1982 killing of 148 Shiites in the city of Dujail. (There are rumors that he had hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed, but the truth is Saddam was executed for 148 deaths.) It doesn't look good to kill two million or more people in order to execute Saddam for 148 deaths. Second, one of the alleged reasons for invading Iraq was to help the Iraqi people. Again, it doesn't look good to kill two million or more Iraqis in order to help them. It will be many years after the total withdrawal of American forces from Iraq, before an accurate death toll is available. To get an idea of the killing power of the American war machine, consider the Vietnam War death toll that is now known. Per Wikipedia, 3 to 4 million were killed in North and South Vietnam and 1.5 to 2 million were killed in Laos and Cambodia in wars that didn't even exist per American propaganda. A total of 4.5 to 6 million deaths in mountainous jungle, while according to The Seattle Times, there were "only" roughly 100,000 deaths in the open terrain of Iraq. In attempting to arrive at an accurate death toll in Iraq, let's first look at all of the deaths that were excluded from The Seattle Times tally, which in turn is based on the Associated Press. AP/TIMES EXCLUSIONS All non-violent deaths including sanctions related deaths; All police and military deaths. (Before you state that these deaths should be excluded, consider that they died while defending their homes, families and country from an invading army. All deaths in the first two years of the war because of damage to the recording infrastructure; All deaths reported to hospitals and morgues located in areas deemed to be too dangerous to visit; All deaths reported to hospitals and morgues that didn't distinguish between civilian and military deaths, because AP assumed all such deaths were military; All deaths that were never reported to a hospital or morgue; Almost all, if not all, of the deaths of family members of the 3.7 to 4.7 million refugees. These exclusions include almost all of the Iraq war deaths. For those who wish to pursue an in depth study of war deaths, I recommend reading the Wikipedia website of this subject. SANCTIONS DEATHS Because of length, I can't begin to discuss all of the above exclusions. I will begin by discussing sanctions related deaths. These sanctions were in place from 8/06/90 to 5/22/03. The sanctions were especially deadly to children ("children" meaning children less than five years of age) mainly because of damage to water treatment plants in the first war and a subsequent embargo on antibiotics and medicines. There are many studies of sanctions related deaths including the following: 10 years starting 1990. Half a million children deaths per UNICEF; 1991 to 2002. 343,900 to 525,400 children deaths per Prof. Richard Garfield; 1990 to 6/2003. Total sanctions deaths per UN Population Division of 1.7 million including 1.2 million children; 1990 through 1995. Half a million children deaths per Food and Agricultural Organizatin of the UN. P O S T 2 0 0 3 I N VA S I O N DEATHS As of 7/2006. 655,000 total deaths per the Bloomberg School of Public Health at John Hopkins University and reviewed by 27 Australian medical experts; Through 2007. one million total deaths per the above John Hopkins group. Note that none of the post invasion death statistics include deaths of refugee family members. This is a significant understatement because these people became refugees due to the destruction of their families and/or homes. It doesn't take much study to realize that firm war death statistics do not exist and that there are contradictions even in the limited death totals presented herein. It will probably be several years after the total withdrawal of American troops from Iraq before a firm death tally is available. It appears that the total death toll including military is roughly two to three million excluding refugees and I won't even attempt to guess the total death toll including the loved ones of refugees. Aggressive war is, and always has been, mankind's most heinous crime. Mason Hess Tonasket Islamic jihad freedom of expression and democracy: It is September and in reflection of 9/11 and the reaction, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and a rising friction around the world between followers of Islam and democracy. Islamic uproar in Denmark � cartoons of Muhammad � which challenge democratic freedom and rights, for which democracy to exist cannot yield. Also arrests of alleged Islamic jihadist extremists in Canada, the insensitive location of a mosque in New York and in protest imbecile plans to burn Korans in Florida. With justification, society should ask what could happen if followers of Islam fail to, from within, reform Islam to coexist in harmony with democracy in the same way Christianity was reformed. In protest against the Roman Catholic Church charlatanry and tyranny, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the door of the Church in Wittenberg in 1517 and started the reformation of Christianity. From a distorted religion that used despots and autocrats as an instrument to oppress people, Christianity became a religion that embraced science and increased understanding and coexistence with secular democratically governed economies and separation between religion and the state. As Winston Churchill put it, "Christianity becomes a religion sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled." Any student of the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire 16001923, Britain's and France's actions, can find historical explanations to the adverse reaction in the Islamic culture towards Christians, Jews and Westerners. Explanations, but today there is no excuse for Muslims to challenge the democratic rights and freedoms in Canada, Denmark, U.S., Australia and elsewhere and no justification for terror, bombing and killing. Muslims should ask themselves, `where is Islam leading us,' and bear in mind, when ignorant Christian Crusaders encountered the Arabic Islamic Culture, around year one thousand, they met an Islamic culture where the understanding in society was superior to the Christian culture in Europe. From there we can study how the society that made up the Christian Culture in Europe spurred by increased understanding produced by research, realizes that a democratically governed secular mixed economic system with the separation between religion and the state, can best secure quality of life and political stability. Starting with Martin Luther; Christianity was reformed from the inside by Christian leaders that embraced science and democracy. So must Islam be reformed from the inside to coexist with democracy. Under constitutions, such as the Canadian and United States, Denmark et al societies are guaranteed freedom of expression and of the press, including the right to draw and publish cartoons and unrestricted access to an independent judiciary to solve disputes between themselves and the government, unlike theocratic Canon inquisitions and Sharia courts! The hope is, that people such as the human and woman's right advocate Raheel Raza and Tarek Fatah cofounder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, and other Muslims around the world that embrace democracy, and will be able to reform Islam from the inside. There is hope but no guarantees. Today the society that makes up democracies should not allow Islamic extremists on one side, and Islamophobes on the other side, to provoke fear. Nor should society be complacent and subdued by political correctness as long Islam is not reformed to truly coexist with democracy, as history shows, ignorance, complacency and lack of civic courage is the root of democratic failures � use it or lose it. Kell Petersen Osoyoos, B.C. firepot it covers the ignitor hole not allowing the pellets to fall to the level of the ignitor hole, which prevents the pellets from igniting. Sometimes, depending on the amount of the clinker, the pellets will try to start but will be very slow to ignite since there are too many pellets and the pellets are above the ignitor hole and the pellets will smoke heavily and will finally ignite with an explosion forcing smoke into the house. Most of the time the stove will run out of it's 10-15 minute programmed ignition proving time and the stove will shut down. The only thing that can be done is to clean out the clinker from one to three times a day. More air will not correct the problem. Using a stove in the manual mode of pellet feed is recommended since it will eliminate the ignitor problems.

They thought the pellet stove was malfunctioning, but after having it checked several times, the pellet stove was found to be mechanically operating properly. The problem, which has affected hundreds of people, is dirt in the pellets. Dirt in the pellets causes a clinker to form. A clinker is a combination of the dirt and normal fly ash that forms a hard deposit, which will not blow out of the firepot and instead builds up in the firepot. The fresh pellets falling cannot get enough air for proper burning and will overflow the firepot. The problem is especially increased when a self-igniting stove is used. The ignitor is at the bottom of the firepot and with a normally empty firepot the pellets come up to the level of the ignitor hole and the pellets can ignite properly.

The calendar shows us that it is, and the good garden foods are dwindling. Now it's pumpkin time and they are seen on every corner, or perhaps yet in the patch. A drive to Penticton shows lots of eatable foods still in the fields, and many of the fruit stands are still open. A recent drive past Vaseaux Lake, on the way to Penticton gave us a scene not often seen, and that was two moose in the lake. As we were on a schedule and couldn't stay and watch to see if they were swimming the lake or just what their plans were but it was fascinating to see. A few years ago one swam across Lake Osoyoos, reaching shore at the Larsen residence and Dick has a video to prove it. Some weeks I haven't kept notes, so when I need to remember what happened, it just doesn't happen. So I was so pleased when I got a call, giving me something exciting to write about. The senior Brazle families were residents and business people in the Okanogan Valley, for many years, a lot of years ago. I believe their last business was a grocery in the Covert building, next to where the present Oroville-Gazette office is located. They had a daughter and two sons, all who have reached well over 80 years. I received the call from Dean Brazel, 84, telling that he has been chosen to go to Washington D.C. on a program called Honor Flight. His granddaughter sent his name in and porarily, and hail and rain came down. Just what is not needed before the fruits are harvested.

It started our with our Highland Mounted Drill Team performing at the Okanogan County Fair on both Friday and Saturday Nights. On Friday night they had a bit of "arena fright" from a horse or two. A lot of people, loud music and strange territory. They made it through the routine and no one was hurt. On Saturday night things could not have gone any better. It was reported to me that it was the "best" performance they have performed. Congratulations to all the riders and we are looking forward to seeing you all again next year. I had a chance to get my hands on a magazine titled the American Cowboy. In the magazine is a story titled, "Tales of the Ghosts Towns". As Westerners we are surrounded with Starts Fri. reminders of our history and heritage, especially up here on our hilltop. They show a map with 13 ghost towns listed. Right smack in the middle of the story is, guess who?, that's right, our Molson, Wash. The story says that, "Molson was named for a beer heir, John W Molson. Molson is actually a grouping of three small rival towns built of conflict, near the Canadian border." Molson was established in 1900 to support the local mining claims. Its population grew to a whopping 300 only to collapse to 13 residents when the mines busted just a year later. In 1905 with the start of a new railroad line the town was revived again until 1908 when J H McDonald filed a homestead claim that included 40 acres of Molson. Upset by the controversy, many moved their businesses and homes a half mile down the rail line, which established New Molson. Always in conflict the two towns got together long enough to build a school house between the two towns, which created Center Molson. The rivalry continued PG G through the years and all collapsed when the trains stopped running.

"Mystery and Magic" is filled with humor and non-stop surprises. Combining dance with visual illusion, innovative and aerial choreography and visually stunning interactive sets, this show creates "an exotic feast for the senses," states the Spokane Spokesman Review. As a roster company with Young Audiences, Rainbow Dance Theatre performs for over 15,000 Washington and Oregon students per year. Thomas and Bergman have received numerous grants for their "Rainbow Project" from the 21st Century Learning Center and the Oregon Arts Commission to bring performances to at-risk youth and teens. They have also received numerous grants and awards from the NEA, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Fred Meyer Foundation that allows them to pursue their passion of working with students of all backgrounds. Tickets for this exciting show are $15 for adults and seniors and $8 for students and can be performing at the following ticket outlets: The Corner Shelf in Omak, Tonasket Interiors on Fourth Street, Rusty Shovel in Okanogan and The Inn at Molson on Mary Ann Creek Rd. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone using your visa or master card at (509) 826-7688.

This Oregon based dance company will be performing on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Omak Performing Arts Center on the corner of Central and Cedar.

By Emily Hanson Staff Writer TONASKET - Tonasket High School is playing host to four foreign exchange students from four different countries this school year. The exchange students are Ramshah Akhlaq from Karachi Pakistan, Yekaterina Konshina from Biysk, Russia, Anne-Lise Langehaug from Oslo, Norway and Ruiyu Zeng from Chuzhou, China. Despite being from four different countries, all four students agree that although the school system in Tonasket and the city itself is much different from their hometowns, they are all enjoying their time here. "It's not completely different but I feel it's slightly more informal," Akhlaq said and the other three girls agreed. "The students here are closer to their teachers and we have fewer subjects here," Konshina added. Langehaug said there's more homework in Tonasket than in Norway, where doing homework is optional and Zeng said she studies from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in China, so Tonasket is much easier for her. A desire to experience the culture of the United States is what brought each of the girls here, stating that they'd seen the country in movies and wanted to see it for themselves. "I came here for a change because I feel bored in China," Zeng said. "There's a big difference between America and China because America has much fewer people." Each of the girls said they've found stereotypes present among the people of Tonasket about their home countries, but stated they wanted to help change those impressions. "People here think that in Russia, people wear fur hats and coats all the time and it's cold all the time and that we don't even have Internet," Konshina said. "I knew many people here would think Russia was like that, but I want to change this stereotype." All four girls come from cities that are much larger than Tonasket. Konshina said Biysk is about 120 times larger than Tonasket, Zeng said there are about 300,000 people in Chuzhou, Langehaug said Oslo is much larger than Tonasket and Akhlaq said Karachi is the 20th largest city in the world. Although each of the girls said they feel homesick from time to time, they all said their host families help them feel more at home. "I want to learn the culture because the American culture is very charming and I want to learn the American lifestyle," Zeng said. Langehaug said she wants to learn to be more social and to not be as judgmental, stating that people in Norway are more judgmental than those here in Tonasket. Finally, the girls, who will each be attending school here until June, each said they would love to come back to the U.S. in the future.

Delivering the Future...A Balanced Approach Submitted by Dwight Grimmer, Postmaster, Oroville Post Office Mail helps power the economic engine of the nation. It is a $1 trillion industry that employs more than 8 million Americans. For 235 years, the United States Postal Service has provided dependable service at an affordable price. Our products and services create jobs, strengthen relationships and connect businesses. And yet, the USPS is in crisis. Never has this organization faced such enormous challenges as customer preferences have rapidly evolved and new technology has changed how Americans communicate and transact business. Mail volume is declining dramatically, even as the cost of delivering mail to an expanding number of addresses continues to grow. As a result, the Postal Service's ongoing ability to finance universal service is at risk. If the USPS takes no action, it could face a cumulative $238 billion shortfall by the year 2020. Like any company that doesn't receive taxpayer dollars for operations, the Postal Service has responded by dramatically cutting costs. In 2009 alone the USPS cut $6.1 billion in costs and reduced its workforce by 65,000 through attrition and early retirement offers. However, cost-cutting alone will not be enough. The Postal Service has an action strategy, "Deliverying the Future." The strategy takes a balanced approach over the next decade and describes a flexible, agile USPS that can adapt to America's changing mailing habits and preferences. Highlights of the plan include: - Restructuring retiree health benefit payments to follow what is used by the rest of the federal government and the majority of the private sector. This equates to an average of $5.6 billion in cash flow every year through 2016. - Expanding products and services by permitting the USPS to evaluate and introduce more new products, allowing it to better respond to changing customer needs and compete more effectively in the marketplace. - Adjust delivery frequency to better reflect current mail volumes and customer habits. Survey data show that the public favors 5-day delivery over using taxpayer funds and other alternatives. - Continue to modernize by expanding customer access by providing services more convenient to customers - grocery stores, pharmacies, retail centers, office supply stores. Increase and enhance customer access through partnerships, self-service kiosks and a world-class website, usps. com, while reducing costs. The Postal Service understands that to best serve American people in 2020 and beyond, it must be leaner and more able to quickly respond to customer mailing needs.

At the end of August the Oroville Elementary School students started the new school year exited to meet their new teachers and ready to try out all the brand new school supplies. On Sept. 9, Mrs. Shirley's and Mrs. Vanwoert's first grade class, including Mrs. Bourn's Transition class, went on their first field trip, a visit to the Okanogan County Fair. About 50 exited kids could not wait to get on the school bus and for most of them it was their first ride on one. Shortly after their arrival at the fair, the kids where ready to explore the fairgrounds. Each Parent Helper had a group of four to six students to guide through the exhibits. To make the whole trip more interesting, the teachers turned the fair visit into a scavenger hunt and each group had to find a variety of items. They had to look for animals, such as pigs, goats, horses, etc., fruits and vegetables, trucks and even for a policeman. They liked meeting Smokey Bear and learning about fire safety and next in line was Cavies Reserve Champion Pocket Pets Best of 4-h Superintendent Laurie Morgan Grand Photo Album - Amelia M.

They were especially impressed by the demonstrations of climbing a power pole and what happens when something like a kite or metal pole touches a power line. The students got their own kid's size hard hats to take home. Eager Beaver, the State Park Ranger Mascot. From there they moved on to the farm animals and experienced a lot of different smells � not always very pleasant for their little noses. The also heard a variety of animal sounds and best of all they where able to pet a few animals. At noon all teachers (including Principal Pringle), parents and students reunited to take a lunch break and a well-deserved rest. The kids did not need long to recharge their energy and off we went to discover new things. One of the highlights was the PUD demonstration. The PUD employees showed the children how to climb up a power pole and also how to get down. They demonstrated what happens if objects touch the power line � from a kid's kite to a metal pipe. The flames and the smoke impressed the young viewers quite effectively. It was a great way to spend the day and students, teachers and parents had a lot of fun.

These lakes will have unrestricted fishing through Oct. 10. Licensed anglers are encouraged to harvest the remaining game fish in all of the lakes mentioned prior to the rehab. I know the Caliche lakes are full of perch. I just may go down and get a bunch myself. Monday, Sept. 20 The fall-run salmon bite is beginning to get hot below Priest Rapids Dam. Anglers have been hooking big fallruns for a while now, but the fishing has definitely improved in the past 10 days or so. These salmon are still coming over Bonneville Dam at a rate of 10,000 to 12,000 a day, and the really big numbers, the 20,000 a day counts haven't even reach John Day. Fall-runs are passing over Priest Rapids at up to 800 a day, and those fish will be hitting the Wenatchee area soon. I have three trips planned to the Vernita area in the next week or so and I can't wait to do battle with some of these big, bright kings. I will be taping a show early this week, and it will be on the air in early October, early enough to give anglers some important tips before the season closes on Oct. 22.

No size restrictions and no limit? I know, that's not what we're used to reading when it comes to lake fishing in our area. However, there are several lakes slated for rehabilitation in Grant County, and temporarily the daily limits and size restrictions have been removed for all game fish. The lakes found in the Co lu mbi a Wild lif e A r e a south of O'Sullivan Dam include: Heart, June, all of the Windmill lakes, Canal and Pit. These lakes are open to unrestricted fishing until Oct. 3. Bag limit and size restrictions have been removed from nearby North and South Teal lakes for the same time period. Other lakes that will be rehabbed and have temporarily suspended bag and size limits are found near George. box. The steelhead fishing is also good in this stretch of the river. I hope to load up on kings early enough to spend some time getting some these, too. Breaking news for all anglers... The Wenatchee & Methow rivers are open for steelhead!

The first half of the game was definitely the best for the Tigers, who held the Cougars to one score, a 31-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Derek Smith to junior running back Connal Calvin with 1:07 left in the first quarter. The extra point kick was blocked by the Tigers and the second quarter was a defensive shutout from both teams. "I felt we played toe-to-toe with them for almost three full quarters and then it seemed like their size wore us down," Jay Hawkins, Tiger head coach, said. Cougar Head Coach Jim Fiske said he felt the first half was tough on his team, with penalties stopping the rhythm of their offense. The third quarter began with a score by Calvin on a 38-yard run with 11:06 left in the quarter. The Cougars scored again at the end of the quarter, with three seconds left, on an eight-yard pass from Smith to senior quarterback Tim Murray. The two-point conversion attempt after each score failed and the game entered the fourth quarter with the Cougars up 18-0. "I think with the score being 12-0 toward the end of the third quarter, our defensive was doing well because the Cougars were a big, physical team," Hawkins said. "We just weren't able to get anything going offensively." Fiske said the Cougars were able to score a few more times in the second half and he felt they wore the Tigers out. In the final quarter, sophomore wide receiver Caleb Wiebe scored on a one-yard run with 7:31 left to play and junior wide receiver Josh Sulgrove scored on a fouryard run with 2:47 left. The PAT after each of these scores was good, giving the Cougars the final score of 32-0. "The team was certainly disappointed, but the kids are pretty resilient," Hawkins said of the shutout. "It was a good game for us," Fiske said. "It went well and we improved on some things we needed to and saw some areas we still need to work on. I think Tonasket has a good football team with some good athletes. There was a nice effort from the offense with a good-looking offensive scheme. I thought their kids played hard and were wellbehaved. The Tigers played well, even though the score didn't reflect it." Tiger senior defensive lineman Justin Dellinger said he thought the Tigers' defense was good, but the Cougars were a really physical and tough team. "I felt like we kept fighting, had pride and didn't give up," he added. "We played tough and kept our heads up." Among the Tiger running backs, senior Keegan McCormick led in yards with 154 while Calvin led for the Cougars with 151 and Smith ran 105 yards. For the Tigers, junior quarterback Dylan Fewkes completed six of 10 passes for 36 yards while junior quarterback John Stedtfeld completed two of four passes for 15 yards. Smith completed eight of 17 passes for the Cougars for 110 yards. "In the first half, we did really well," McCormick said. "We played well but sometimes they had some plays we couldn't stop and we let up in the third and fourth quarters. The Cougars had some pretty big linemen that could shut down our inside game." The Tigers have a bye week this week before they hit the road to play in Cashmere on Friday, Oct. 1. "Cashmere, I think, is a lot better than Chewelah so we really have to concentrate on making our team the best we can," Hawkins said. "I think the league competition this year is going to be outstanding because the league's really strong from top to bottom. We need to get better and smarter on basic reads and defense. We certainly know the league's tough and we're going to have to play really excellent football every Friday night to come out on top." Lady Tigers tie and lose to Omak By Emily Hanson Staff Writer OMAK - The Lady Tigers soccer team lost to Omak just two days after tying them in a home game last week. On Tuesday, Sept. 14, the team tied Omak 3-3, with all Tonasket goals scored by sophomore Kelly Cruz. "I think the girls played well," Darren Collins, head coach, said. "The girls could have passed the ball a little more but they did all right." Cruz said she thought the team played well against the Pioneers as well. "We were talking more and we did way better than our last game, so I think we're improving," she said. "I'm kind of bummed about the tie. I think we could've won but I think we'll come back in our next two games against them." On Thursday, Sept. 16, the Lady Tigers lost in Omak 0-3. "This was a tough game for us," Collins said. "We had a tough loss against Omak and we need to work on controlling our passes and the ball, so we'll work on that all week."

Their next game is in Manson on Thursday, Sept. 23 and then they return home on Saturday, Sept. 25 to play against Cascade. "We've never played Manson before, so that'll be a whole new team for us," Collins said. "We're undefeated at home so we want to keep that going. Saturday's game is going to be tough because Cascade is always tough. I believe our girls can compete with anybody as long as they pass the ball and do what they've been doing."
