On the cover Photo By Dylan Vinson 13 years old Skyview Middle School

I started getting into photography when I got an iPod touch. I realized I was able to take good pictures and that photography is something that is both fun, and relaxing. When you open up to photography you are able to see everyday things in different ways than before. If you are interested in photography or if you would like to see more of Dylan’s pictures visit him @pro_imageryy on instagram.

Mirror we know it! By Olivia Mcgean age 12 Have you seen Mirror Pond lately? I tracked down the person that knows why it looks so different.

Interview with Jim Figurski from Bend Parks and Recreation about The Mirror Pond Project. By Olivia Mcgean Olivia-What is your position with bend parks and Recreation and what is your favorite part about your job? Jim-I am a landscape architect and the project manager of the Mirror Pond project at Bend Parks and Rec. I love talking with people about the project and hearing everyone’s thoughts about it. - What is the current situation at Mirror Pond? Jim-A serious leak in the dam occurred October 2 and it let the water out losing about 2-21/2 feet of water in the pond. This is the third leak in 5 years. - Is there a way to fix the problem? Jim-Yes, a piece of metal against the dam. Pacific power owns the dam. As far as what to do with Mirror Ponds condition, we are in discussions with everyone.

Olivia-We are going to do a poll by local kids in Bend about what they think should be done with Mirror Pond. We will state that over the years much sediment has gathered in Mirror Pond. We could: 1. Do Nothing and keep the dam 2. Keep dam and remove sediment 3. Keep the dam and reuse the sediment 4. Take out the dam and use the sediment to create more land

The dam is located on Newport Ave

Jim-I would be interested in finding out what the kids in Bend feel should happen to Mirror Pond.

Olivia-How much could it cost to dredge Mirror Pond and have you done it before? Did it do anything for it before? Jim-The last time it was dredged was in 1984. This removed 60,000 cubic yards of silt, but not all of it. Some people don’t think it is a good option this time. It could cost $5 million to remove $100,000 cubic yards this time. It could cost anywhere from $3.5 million to $11 million and it will cost more in the future too. - Could this decision effect tourism and events like the duck races? Jim-We are keeping all of these things as considerations. If they remove the dam, fishing and floating could improve in that area of the Deschutes River. -When will this decision happen? Jim-We are doing research and discussions about the leak now. It will be interesting to see what happens. A final decision should be made by 2014.

What do you think should be done with Mirror Pond? Here are the results from our poll. What do you think should be done?




Using these 4 options and simulated pictures of what it might look like, we asked 109 kids from around Central Oregon which option they would choose for the future of Mirror Pond. For more detailed information please visit:

#1 Do nothing and keep the dam

#2 Keep damn and remove sediment

#3 Keep the dam and reuse the sediment.

#4 Take out the dam and use the sediment to create more land.


Olivia with Jim at Bend Parks and Rec.

Thank you for helping with the poll and to those who wrote great reasons why they made their choice. Here are a few comments: Bridget, age 10 Cooper, age 13 “ What ever they decide to do they should “ Option #4 is the best because it looks the best in the make sure it does not cost too much money. It pictures provided in the future after each choice. The could cost a lot in the future if they don’t do it river will be thinner, yes, but it will move faster and be right this time.” more “natural”. Casey, age 13 “ I think #2 is the best for the city of Bend. I think this because 1. Mirror Pond is an iconic place in Bend. 2. After it is dredged it will be nice and cold..optimal for fish health. 3. The dam provides clean energy to over 400 homes in Bend. Even though it will cost quite a bit, it seems everyone wins.”

"Creating Champions in and out of the water" The Bend Swim Club creates an environment of excellence in the pool, but more importantly, we want to prepare our kids for life outside the pool and into the future. The Bend Swim Club is a year round, 155 member of United States Swimming, competitive swimming program, dedicated to helping kids from ages 5-25 become the best people they can be. Our mission statement is " Creating Champions in and out of the water”

Ben Brockman, age 15 Bend Senior High School “I have been swimming on the Bend Swim club since I was 8 ( about 8 years). I would not want to be on any other team! I like swimming the butterfly, freestyle, and backstroke all the same! In a normal week I practice 17.5 hours a week (16 in the pool) and swim about 25000-30000 meters!”

Maddie Coleman Age, 13 Cascade Middle School (7th grade)

“I have been swimming with the Bend Swim Club for 5 years and practice 4-5 days a week for 1&1/2 to 2 hours. Starting at the dolphin group, I have gone through every group and up to Silver, with Gold being the highest and next group up. I love to swim competitively, and this season my goal is to go to state. My favorite and best stroke is backstroke. Go BSC!”

Elizabeth Cobb, age 17, Senior at Mountain View High “I've been swimming since I was 5 years old and swim 6 days a week for a total of 18 hours per week! I plan to swimming mainly backstroke next year in college because it's my favorite and my best stroke. Swimming has taught me so much about commitment, dedication, and hard work. All three have gotten me to the level of competition where I have had the opportunity to travel all over the West coast! I love swimming with all my heart and wouldn't want to be competing in any other sport.”

Jennifer Robeson “I've been competitively swimming since I was 12. I love the water. I think swimming is a great sport because you can do it through out your life time and because it's so individual. You only have yourself to focus on and improve. My favorite stroke is freestyle and I was the Northwest sectional champion in the IM and 500 free when I was 15. I was also the high school state champ in the 200 IM last year.”

Over the past 50 years, the Bend Swim Club has produced a dozen Olympic Trial Qualifiers, several US National team members and over 30 US National and Junior National qualifiers. Our program ranks among the Top 3 programs in The state of Oregon year in and year out and one of the Top 10 programs in the Pacific Northwest. A large percentage of our graduating seniors go on to compete in college at the highest levels. More importantly, our seniors walk away from our program prepared for the future. Come see what you've been missing. For more information: Mark Bernett, Head Coach, (541)-317-8462

A! and "r love for it! You may ask, what is so great about art? To that I say...Earth without art would just be “eh” Our booth at the fall festival 2013

Painting on wall of my living room, by Brooke

Brooke Bennett, age 15 Bend Senior High School “If I had to pick one word to describe myself, it would be “creative." Why? Because I love art. Ever since I was so little I can't even remember, I've always been busy painting or drawing or doodling. Creativity gives me the chance to explore the world, see beauty in everything, and express myself. My art is intended to send messages of green living, peace, nature, and wonder. I strive to create pieces that reflect what I believe in as well as the beauty in the little things, and enjoy weaving my artsy side into everyday life as much as I can. You might ask, what's so great about art? To that I say, earth without art is "eh."

“ I’m a sophomore at Bend Senior High School and I have been drawing since I can remember. Recently I started an art club at Bend High for other students to expand their skill, knowledge and appreciation. I also volunteer at the Art Station to help out in the community and play with kids. As of this moment my favorite medium is oil paint, and I use a more realistic style.”

Hi, my name is Breonna. I am 11 years old, I am in fifth grade at Morning Star and I dance at Sunriver Dance Academy. I take three dance classes, tap, ballet, and lyrical. Lyrical is my favorite because it is most challenging. I have taken ballet since I was 7 years old. At the end of the dance year in June we have a big performance with lights, good music and a huge audience. We have to wear makeup for the performance. It is so much fun and I like to dance. It is one of my favorite things to do. If you are wondering what lyrical is, it is a mix of ballet, jazz and contemporary. Many people ask that question. Lyrical involves much movement. Ballet you have to be flexible. Tap you have to have skill and loose muscles. I hope I have encouraged you to dance. It is so much fun and I would recommend it to anyone. It is also a good and fun way to exercise. I enjoy dancing at

Sunriver Dance Academy.

Sunriver Dance Academy in the Sunriver Business Park behind the "Big Burger Grill." We are in our 18th season presenting lessons in: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Belly Dance, Hip Hop, Kid-Aesthetics (3-5 year olds), and NEW "Saturday Class" (Contemporary) taught by Christopher Rusch.

Poems and Stories

Good to Great By Drake Buckmaster

   Being good, is fine. Most people

live happy lives, being good. They try to maintain a C, B, or even an A grade in school. They may or may not attend college, and are content with a middle class life. I mean, sure, this lifestyle is good, but not great.

School Many people hate school but a lot love it. You get frustrated and have struggles, but you will learn. In the beginning you wish it was the end. But in the end you wish it was the beginning. School will help you with just plain old life. Don't forget that this is the way that you will be successful. A, B, C, so simple but, you are getting knowledge. It is important that you stay in school and grow to your full potential.

By Megan Bettesworth

   Others, just aren’t happy with being good. Some, require A’s from all classes, and are in tougher classes than others. These people, live middle to upper class lifestyles, and are always striving for more achievements and successes. These people stand out, and are almost always number one choices for job opportunities. This way of life, guarantees the ease of your golden days.     To be great, there is one essential component, that many people are not fortunate enough to have. That is parents who endlessly push and support their beloved child. My parents didn’t have this, and I guess that is why they have given me this priceless gift. If you are one of the few who does not receive this from your parents, or whoever takes care of you, but you provide this to yourself, then you are truly great. All of you though! Go and be truly great yourselves! Those of you who already are, keep up the good work.

Volleyball By:Steele Jasa You’re my favorite sport You frustrate me time and time again You make me feel amazing at times then you make me feel angry How do you do it?

Basketball The ballin’ season is so near, I can’t wait ‘till it is here. Basketball camps, open gyms, Lots of shots bouncing off the rims.

When I hit the ball I can tell what it is going to do...Where it’s going to go How? You confuse me time and time again Sometimes you surprise me when I get the perfect block kill or dig

Tryouts are now in session, Everybody is playing with such aggression. The results have finally come in, I hope that they picked a team to win.

You take so much time and effort But once I start to play it is hard to stop You burn and bruise me But I still love you anyway

I ended up making the big team, Now its about time to scream, SCREAM!! We had our first practice on a Wednesday night, The lights in our gym were so bright. Everyone kept on working really hard, Our team was getting super hard to guard. One more day 'till we got to play, Man our game was the best of the day. We ended up winning by 30 points, All of our players got all up in their joints. Then next game we won, the same after that, We were putting up some great big stats. The championship game is coming up, I hope to take home the awarding cup. We were playin’ the hardest team, Our big win would make the court gleam. The first quarter went very great, I hope that after the game I’ll have a date. We did real good then we won the game, All of our players were filled with fame. By Justin Kerr

Hi, one of my favorite things to do right now is make bracelets with Rainbow Loom. I make them for my friends and family and give them as gifts. You can use the loom but I like to make them with my hands. They are made out of small rubber bands and I get them for Michael’s Craft store.

Making Sushi at dojo We learned that two of the most important parts of making sushi is making the rice and having fresh ingredients. We got to use fun Japanese tools to make and roll the sushi with. Then we got to EAT IT!



Nori MakiSu

First thing you do is wash the rice. This is so you wash out the starch in the rice. Then you soak it for a little while so all the rice has the same moister to cook evenly. Add to the rice, salt, sugar and rice vinegar. This gives the rice more flavor. Mix the rice evenly until it cools and sets. We used a hongiri. A hongiri is a wood Japanese rice bowl. It help absorb the moister.

Bray Charlesworth age 10 Highland Elementary School “I LOVE SUSHI and now I know how to make it. It was so cool of Justin at Dojo to teach me and feed me lunch.”

Before we started to put the rice on the sushi Justin told us a trick to get our hands wet and clap. This helps so the rice does not stick to your hands.

Mason Jenkins age 9 Highland Elementary School “ I know how to make different types of sushi now. I learned a lot and how to make one of my favorite foods. Now I can’t wait to come to Dojo more! “

Nori is the seaweed used to make sushi. Nori means edible seaweed in Japanese. We learned not to leave an empty corner when spreading the rice on the nori. You want an equal amount of rice and balanced ingredients. It is important to keep your roll tight when you roll it. A Japanesse makisu is a woven bamboo mat that helps shape and roll your roll.

Max Sullivan age 9 Waldorf School of Bend “ I have always wanted to make sushi. My favorite part was eating it! I liked the Ramen too!


Is a Japanese noodle dish. When you cut your roll use a cold knife. Presentation is really important too.

Young Birders of Central Oregon By Ezra, Parker and Gabby

LOOKING FOR RAPTORS This fall we at YBCO went looking for raptors at Green Ridge, near Sisters. There are different types of raptors like hawks, falcons, and eagles. It is not very easy to see what raptors are flying by. To spot what kind of raptor you are looking at you have to look at the “giz”. The giz is what birders call your first general impression of the shape and size. On our trip we saw Sharp-shinned Hawks, Cooper’s Hawks and Goshawks. The way we could tell it was a Sharpshinned or Cooper’s was because the Sharp-shinned has a really small head when it is flying. The Cooper’s has a big head. One Cooper’s Hawk flew right over the Lookout. It was exciting to see one that close. A few Red-tailed Hawks came by with Ravens. My favorite bird was the Bald Eagle that flew low. We had fun staying in the fire lookout tower. We could see all the mountains and birds. By Parker Gerard 8th grade, Homeschool

Flying oh so high with akmost too keen of an eye spotting prey from hundreds of feet up. Flying up so high hard to see with the naked eye. Seeing them with binocs really rocks. What are they? By Ezra Neuman 8th grade, REALMS Drawing by Gabby Sarao 9th grade, Bend High
