Santiam Schools gets ready for Sleeping Beauty Student thespians and singers have been working since September to perform the Grimm version of the classic tale

Santiam Highs School drama student McKenna Aerni, shown here performing as Lilac with her baby”Briar Rose”. The cost for the play is $5.00 adults, $3.00 students and seniors, with all funds raised going toward the Drama program.

Theater Outreach is back in town, and their intrepid director, David Berrier is back doing his magic as he brings together both local student and adult actors for a unique musical rendition of Sleeping Beauty. Thanks in part to Santiam Hearts to Arts, Theater Outreach was able to form its first ever partnership with a school district, to organize and operate a full-

fledged drama program, and they chose Santiam. They began their auditions and started rehearsals back in September, and have been holding four hour long practices on Fridays ever since to accommodate the schedules of the student actors. “We have many terrific singers, both girls and boys. Though the music is challenging, the students (cont’d on page 9)

City of Lyons swears in new council, planning members City welcomes new Mayor Dan Burroughs, while contentions persist within council stemming from water district issues in 2011 The City of Lyons officially has two new members on city council, and welcomes former council member Dan Burroughs as the new mayor. Resident Steve Baldwin was also sworn in as a new member of the Lyons Planning Commission. Baldwin’s term will be determined by lottery at the next council meeting. Mayor Burroughs, and new council members Gary Alkire and Mark Orr, were elected last November and were sworn in January 3 at a special meeting at Lyons City Hall. There, the new council nominated and elected Gary Alkire to serve as Mayor Pro-tem, who will perform the mayoral duties when Burroughs cannot. But contentions with this council could prove imminent. City of Lyons attorney Steve Tabor was called in to remind the city government of the council rules, including “It’s the council as a body that represents the city.

Cousin Larry won the crowd’s heart - and the final victory over “Gorgeous” Michelle Starr (cont’d from page 1) the character that every-

one loved to hate, while his counter-character Cousin Larry danced around in his overalls as the final victor of the event. Other characters were fast favorites, like Latino Blanco, a short but charismatic and costumed sombrero wearing wrestler, who had the crowd laughing in no time flat as he battled (and won) against a much bigger

opponent. The Professional Wrestling event was a fundraiser for Mari-Linn School and the North Santiam Chamber of Commerce, and raised about $1,000 for the two groups combined. Special thanks to organizers Michelle Gates, Micah Keto & Sandy Lyness from the North Santiam Chamber of Commerce

and Mari-Linn School Principal Jeri Loftus (plus student and staff helpers), plus sponsors: Lyons Heating and Cooling, Knight Vision Security, The Canyon Weekly, Mehama True Value, Mehama NAPA Auto Parts, Your Country Kitchen, Micah & Jeff Keto, Powell Butte - and Doug Miller & the City of Lyons for coordinating the use of their chairs.

Bill Sanderson’s River Report January 9, 2012

503-897-3301 Rain and snow have complicated river running schedules recently. That is not unusual this time of year, when we have alternating rain, snow, and temperatures along with a few dry days. Last minute changes to schedules were necessary and forecasts were only accurate for short periods of time. River temperature going into Detroit Lake was around 39 degrees the last few days, and was about the same coming out of Detroit. By the time the water got down to Green’s Bridge, it had only warmed up two degrees to around 41. At the dam, some water from the top of the lake is released and some from the lower levels. The temperature is balanced by using the mix of strata. People on the river below Packsaddle may notice the fluctuation while the mixing occurs. Fish don’t move much in the very cold water and they try to find the warmest places possible. Some tributaries have warmer water, and the mouths are likely places to find steelhead. All sections of the North Santiam are navigable between Packsaddle Park and the Willamette River. The upper sections have excellent whitewater, and the lower sections have riffles and tranquility. Both scenic trips and fishing trips are of interest to some outdoor oriented people who have warm jackets and good

raingear. Other people are making plans for trips to the river in warmer and drier weather. Steelheaders Salem Chapter meets on January 15 with a guide program by Curt Currey at 7:00 p.m. at Keizer Community Center. North Santiam River Guides Association has their annual banquet on January 19 at Gates Fire Hall. It is a catered dinner, and reservations are needed. Bob Lusk, Chap Milbank, and Mike Ferris will take rsvp’s. Guests are welcome. Old fishing movies will be shown. The same group will meet again on Wednesday, January 23 at 6:00 p.m. at Neufeldt’s Diner in Aumsville with Karen Hans from Fish and Wildlife. We will discuss boat ramp improvement at Packsaddle and other habitat improvement projects. She needs input so she can use the information with her grant proposals and permit application. Other current fishing information may be exchanged. The next NSRGA meeting is on Feb 27. Steelheaders Salem Chapter Board meets on February 6, and the general membership meeting is on Feb 19. The series of “Learn the River” trips starts with the run from Green’s Bridge to I-5 Santiam Rest Stop on March 2. Boaters may follow our experienced leaders and learn the river in a group which is dedicated to river safety. Information is available at any of the above meetings.

Bigfoot found: is “Daisy in the Box”? Despite claims of a captured specimen, data regarding Daisy’s height, weight, hair color, and, you know, general realness still hasn’t been released By Dan Best, aka Ranger Dan As a Park Ranger living in the Pacific Northwest there’s always that conversation that makes me think “Are you serious?” I’m known locally for attending to a costumed Bigfoot at Fishermen’s Bend Campground near Mill City, so of course the question is asked, “do I believe in Bigfoot?” Well… honestly, as much as I work, live and play in the mountains, I’m hard pressed in today’s world to believe an 8 foot tall ape is running around here spying on us. But yet I’m intrigued that such a large animal could be living among us and still not be classified by scientists today. So with my curiosity and skepticism toward Bigfoot researchers, I advise and sometimes investigate good quality films and clues on the subject. To me the ever present fuzzy pictures are nothing but someone’s imagination or a hoax. This brings me to the latest “Are you serious?” news: On December 27, 2012 the Bigfoot community went wild with just a few simple words posted on a Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center (MABRC) forum saying “Daisy is in the Box.” So what does this mean and Fishermen’s Bend hosts Kent and Sharon with Bubba and why so cryptic? With some Gossimer. more internet research we found that an Ed Smith, through a group called QUantra, is claiming they have captured a Bigfoot. Captured a Bigfoot! Immediately the MABRC said they are not actually involved in this event. It is interesting they are being used for information yet they are claiming they are not involved. After all, Ed Smith published this news through the MABRC forums and all news about this incident IS originating from Ed Smith, a former (cont’d on page 7)

Love never fails or changes worth in another country. Love is universal. The best lesson anyone could ever learn to is love and be loved in return. It’s an around the clock job, and sometimes it’s hard, but it’s worth it. I’d choose love because love never fails.

Nicole Feigion Miller: I would marry for love because I need love to feel fulfilled in this life, not money. I would much prefer to accumulate a “wealth” of loving relationships than a wealth of material things. Sam Scott: Love comes easy. A lot easier then money, so I choose money.

SCSD meets Jan 10 to discuss $200,000 budget shortfall The Santiam Canyon School District School Board is scheduled to meet in regular session this Thursday, January 10 at 6:30pm in the Santiam Elementary Commons and the public is encouraged to attend. Despite the many cuts and changes that have taken place over the past year, including the closing of Gates Elementary and the loss of many jobs, the Board is still facing a daunting current $200,000 budget deficit. Exactly how this is to be remedied is yet to be decided and the board is seeking community input. According to Interim Superintendent of Schools, Brian Gander, the district was able to reduce the actual deficit of $571,000 from June of 2012 to the current number. The meeting this Thursday will provide ample time for community members to share their suggestions.

SHS Basketball: girls team ranks 6th overall in 2A schools, boys keep determined focus at tourney Santiam Girls Varsity basketball has been heating up the court this season! Last year the Lady Wolverines placed 3rd in the state, and this year with a current ranking of 6th overall in 2A schools, the odds may be in their favor. The girls beat Central Linn 55-12 Tuesday evening, and placed first in the Santiam hosted Holiday Basketball Tournament event. Santiam’s Varsity Boys team keeps a determined focus with inspired players. They lost their last game to Central Linn, 45-53 giving the Cobras, a top ranking in the league team, a challenging run for their money. The Wolverine’s currently rank 34th in Oregon. Santiam hosts their next games this Wednesday, January 9 against the Culver Bulldogs.. J.V. games start at 3:30 and Varsity at 6:30 at the Santiam Jr/Sr High Gymnasium.

Musicians needed to perform Bluegrass at Mission Mill events Salem Chapter of the Oregon Bluegrass Association works on agreement to use location for meetings, trade for performances By Ken Cartwright Good news, bluegrass fans. We have a new jam and concert venue, and it looks like a permanent home for the Salem Chapter of the Oregon Bluegrass Association. I spent the morning negotiating with the good folks at the Willamette Heritage Center, better known as Mission Mill in Salem. Beginning January 20, 2013, we will meet from 2-5pm in the Dye house, ground level, of the mill complex. Very easy access in and out and easy to find. For many years when I was a member and board member of the Salem Folklore Community and the Salem Bluegrass Association, we used the mill for many events. It’s a great place and they are glad to have us. It comes with a price: The mill has 3 events a year that they need music for. The first one is May 11, 2013 for the Sheep 2 Shawl event and 8

they will need bluegrass music for 4 or 5 hours. They will need music September 21 for their Harvest festival and for December 19-23 for Magic at the Mill, about 2 hours per evening. That means that we need to find volunteers who will perform. Please let me know if you your group would participate. Jan Cartwright and I will gladly step in with our friends. In the event that the Dye house get’s rented for an event that we have a jam scheduled for, we will be allowed to use the little church nearby that holds 100.

This will also allow us to hold concerts for groups passing through the area that we want to book. There’s hardly a week that goes by that we don’t get one group or another wanting a venue in Salem. I will look at doing a concert series for one concert a month. I don’t want to book anymore than that as it’s too much work and I’m not up to the challenge anymore. I am booking a Bluegrass Gospel show now as a fundraiser for the OBA scheduled for April. More details later. And lastly, I need to find a host for David Grier. As you may know, David Grier is coming to Salem to do a show for us January 17, at the Grand Theatre on High St. Doors open at 7, showtime is 7:30, tickets are $15 at the door. Cash or checks only please, no credit or debit cards. He will need a home to stay in for the night he is here. If you can help, please let me know.


Fire breathing dragon part of elaborate sets on the stage of Sleeping Beauty: Jan 31-Feb 3 (cont’d from page 1) have embraced it with passion. They probably don’t realize how difficult it is to stage a full-blown stage musical with all novice actor/singers! However, several of the actors are truly gifted performers. They help to energize the cast and motivate us all to push ourselves to create a thoroughly entertaining show!” said Berrier. This version of the classic story of Sleeping Beauty is based on the original Grimm’s story, it is not the Disney edition. The story will be familiar but the music is new and

according to Berrier, “absolutely fantastic!” In fact, the composer, David Kisor, wrote a new song just for Theater Outreach at David Berriers’ request. It is called “Suddenly”, which Santiam Elementary’s own Briar Rose, Gracie Goodell, will sing. In all there are a total of 23 songs in the show, including an opera, which should prove a real treat for fans of musicals. The Evil Fairy, Wysteria, played by Paige Hanna, sings some of the most powerful songs, “and Paige nails them all,” said Berrier.

Berrier directed the same version of Sleeping Beauty recently at Theater Outreaches home stage at Chemeketa Community College. The elaborate sets, complete with an innovative fire-breathing dragon, are to be moved to Santiam Auditorium this week. The costumes are almost complete, just needing a bit of reworking to fit the smaller sized actors, and JoAnn Hebbing, the music director, is preparing the musicians for fullruns in the coming weeks. “It is a very big undertaking; we could not be successful without the the unrelenting drive and support of Ross Miller and Caroline Gillaspy. They are true treasures of the Santiam School District!” said Berrier. Sleeping Beauty is scheduled: Thurs Jan 31, 7pm, Sat Feb 2 at 2pm/7pm, and Sun Feb 3, 2pm. Tickets: $5 for adults, $3 seniors/ students. Desserts will be served at intermission with all proceeds benefiting the drama program.

Ina Linda Whitten

Obituaries

January 28, 1915 - January 2, 2013

Ina Linda Whitten passed away peacefully on January 2, 2013 in Vancouver, Washington, about 4 weeks shy of her 98th birthday. She was born on January 28th, 1915 at home in Rosburg, Washington, across the Columbia River from Astoria. She was the thirteenth child in her family and her mother called her “the youngest a-one” from that point on. Her parents immigrated from Finland, were married in Astoria in 1888, and settled in Rosburg. Ina finished grade school there and later went to Beauty School in Portland. She then worked in Woodburn as a beautician for several years. In 1940, she married Eugene Noyes Whitten, from nearby Skamokawa. They moved to Cougar, Washington later that year where Noyes logged near the base of Mt. St. Helens. In 1941, they relocated to Scio, Oregon for several years while Noyes logged in the Quartzville area. In 1943, they moved to Idanha, where Noyes logged on the North Santiam. In 1955, they relocated to Mill City where Noyes continued logging until he retired. In 2001, Noyes died and in 2002, Ina moved to the Marian Estates in Sublimity where she remained until 2011 when she moved to Vancouver, Washington to be nearer her children and their families. In Idanha and Mill City, Ina took great pride in her flowers and yard, earning several awards for “Best Landscaped Yard” in Mill City. Over the years, Ina and Noyes took many trips around the US and also enjoyed visiting Canada, England, Finland, India, New Zealand, Australia, and Tahiti. Ina is survived by her daughter, Cara Lee Crowder and husband Tom of Lake Oswego, and her son Charles (“Rusty”) Whitten and his wife Sharon of Battle Ground, WA, Grandchildren Christina Crowder in Hamden, Connecticut, Lisa Crowder in Bryan, Texas, Kevin Whitten and wife Lisa in Yacolt, WA and Jeffrey Whitten and wife Shelly in LaCenter, WA, and 5 great-grandchildren; Katelyn and Bethany Whitten (LaCenter), and Eric, Sam, and Lena Whitten (Yacolt). She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Noyes (2001), father Matt (1915), mother Rosa (1953), brothers Matt, Charlie, Richard, Andrew, and Ted, and sisters Mary, Ida, Hilma, Sophie, Alma, Jennie, and Helia. Visitation will be held on Thursday, January 10 from 9am-4pm and a funeral service will be held on Friday, January 11th at 1pm, both at Weddle Funeral Chapel in Stayton, Oregon. Online condolences to: www.WeddleFuneral.com. Contributions to the North Santiam Historical Society or Mill City Fire Department may be made in lieu of flowers, if desired.

Ina M. Damon March 15, 1922 – January 3, 2013

Ina was born in Fall City, OR to Arthur and Margaret Arrance. She grew up in the area and married Leslie Damon on December 1, 1940. She was a homemaker who loved to sew and enjoyed the outdoors and birds. She and Leslie spent many happy hours traveling together. She was a wonderful Christian woman who deeply loved her family. She was loved by her children; Philip Damon, Priscilla Olson, Linda foster, Francis Damon, 12 grandchildren, 24 great

grandchildren, several great great grandchildren. Funeral Service was held January 8at Weddle Funeral Chapel. Burial at Fairview Cemetery, Gates. Arrangements entrusted to Weddle Funeral Services.

Reality Check with G. R. Vince Johnson

Opinion

An Oddity and Shocker about Super Bowl 2013 The “oddity” has to do with the NFL’s insistence upon referring to the next Super Bowl as XLVII rather than Super Bowl 2013. To illustrate: Super Bowl XLVII is actually Super Bowl 47 and it is scheduled for February 3, 2013 and not February III, MMXIII. The NFL has always used Arabic or digital numbers on their uniforms, yard lines and scoreboards. Why do they insist upon Roman Numerals for Super Bowls? In baseball things are different. The 2012 World Series took place in 2012 and I don’t know anybody who gives a hoot what “number” it was. Nor do I believe anybody gains any serious benefit in knowing that the Super Bowl played on February 3, 2013 is officially described as Super Bowl XLVII. Quick now, in regular numbers what year did they play Super Bowl XXXVIII? That was Super Bowl 38 and it was played in the year MMIV. That’s the oddity. Why does the NFL get so tricky when referring to a particular Super Bowl and so straightforward about everything else? The 50 yard line is the 50 yard line and never referred to as the “L” yard line. It is always “first and ten.” It’s never “first and X”! After a touchback in the NFL the ball is placed on the 20 yard line not the XX yard line! (In college the ball is placed on the 25 and never the XXV.) So much for the “oddity.”

The Super Bowl 2013 “shocker” is based upon the average price of TV commercials aired during the game. It is no surprise to a lot of folks that the average 30 second commercial is reportedly at $4 million. That comes to $133,333 per second or $8 million a minute or $480 million an hour. At that rate, it would require a little over 2 hours to watch $1 billion dollars worth of commercials at the rates being charged for Super Bowl 2013. Keep in mind that one trillion is equal to one thousand billions. Today, the National Debt is over $16 trillion dollars. At $480 million an hour it would take 33,333 hours to watch $16 trillion worth of commercials! That’s over three years and seven months to see $16 trillion worth of TV commercials priced at $133,333 per second! Just imagine watching TV commercials non-stop (24/7) for three years and seven months. That’s about as long as it takes to go from a high school freshman to a graduating senior with no time off for weekends or summer vacations! Recommendation to all high school students: Take this REALITY CHECK to your math teacher and determine if my calculations are correct. After that, invite your Congressman or Senator to come to Santiam High School and explain why Congress is being judicious and prudent in forcing your generation to pay for all the things they decide your parents must have but cannot afford. My name is G. R. Vince Johnson and I approve of this message. Email me at vjadtrak@wvi.com
