Resale store burglarized of $1600 in games and jewelry
The owners of Deb’s Attic came to work last Monday morning to find empty shelves and a broken window after a burglar broke in and stole an estimated $1600 in jewelry and video games sometime that night. Debbie Turner and Linda Bradley, the store owners, said that someone broke into the store, located at 611 N. 1st Ave, Stayton, through the back window, appearing to choose items that are easily resold, like Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Playstation games. The theft is believed to have occurred sometime between 11am Sunday & 11am Monday, said Linda Bradley - less than 2 days after the store owners had re-stocked all of the game displays. While there, the thief piled up clothing in the middle of the store, but left them behind. They were men’s clothes, in small and medium sizes. A footprint was also found near the broken back win-
dow, left on shattered glass, which was collected by Officer Meeker of the Stayton Police Department. The theft is covered by insurance, but Deb’s Attic owner Debbie Turner feels violated. “They didn’t steal things that you have to have to live, like a pair of shoes. I try to be honest, so I don’t understand why someone would do this? It really did hurt my feelings.” Linda Bradley said she thinks the burglar threw a T-shirt over the security cameras, then used the store’s bags and backpacks to haul everything away. The investigation is ongoing. Thefts of this nature have been within typical levels in the area, said a representative from the Stayton Polic Department. “I’d look for someone who has an unusual amount of XBox 360 or Playstation games for sale,” said Linda Bradley. Contact the Stayton PD, ref. case #12/1365 with any information.

Community rallies to seek answers to school budget crisis
The all-purpose room at Mill City Middle School was full to capacity a half hour before the meeting was to begin May 2, and the crowd continued to grow. The standing room only gathering at the Santiam Canyon School District board meeting was in repsonse to the meeting held April 23, where few citizens were aware it was taking place, and where desperate news was delivered. That lack of communication with the public prompted a parents advocacy group to quickly form via facebook and phone calls, which helped to bring together an unprecedented number of patrons flooding the May 2 meeting, demanding transparency and presenting impassioned pleas to the board to preserve the schools. Dozens of citizens lined up to approach the podium with concerns of cuts in staff, and the possibility of closing a school. More questions than answers were presented. “Our family moved up here because of the school and staff here. The teachers that you have are very well known all over. When you start taking away programs, you are going to lose parents.” said Kim Davidson, pictured above. Alicia Clark: a sophomore at SHS approached, “I speak for the students when I say that I am really concerned for our future. What is going to happen to my four younger siblings? To have the young age group with the
older age group - it can’t happen, it’s not appropriate.” “How did we get to $750K without any forewarning? asked Ken Allison. The meeting ended with plans to meet again May 8, to allow the public to engage in facilitated brainstorming sessions. Statewide schools are in trouble. Salem will be losing its 6th school in two years soon and Beaverton is facing a $37 million deficit. Last year at this time we reported on the then $600,000 local deficit which led to staff reduction. The state legislature adopted a budget last year that dropped the total allotment for education from what was 44% in the early 2000’s to 37% for the 2011-13 biennium. The statebudget had been set, and has not changed since last July 1. “I voted on that, and it wasn’t easy,” said state Representative Sherrie Sprenger, who also co-chaired the ways and means committee, “but you can’t give out more money than you have in your purse. The education budget is a chunk of the (state) pie, but the pie is small. Anyone who looks at a budget number and says ‘I’m spending it all now’ is foolish. My advice to anyone right now is, don’t buy a pencil if you already have one.” “None of us could have foreseen the the decline (cont’d on page 2)

Send your letter to Editor@TheCanyonWeekly.com with your name and town. Dear Editor, My family and I are new to the area and were drawn here by its magnificent landscapes, beautiful surroundings and that “small town” ambiance. I was really delighted to see an article about places to go and explore the Canyon. We are always looking for inexpensive places to hike and camp, especially, close to home. Thanks to Teri Ottosen for the terrific article “Take a Hike to Shellburg Falls.” Please!!! Give me more!!! Donyea Saari, Mill City From the Editors: Thanks, Donyea! Check out page 4 for another great hike from Teri Ottosen, this one goes from Elkhorn to Shady Cove. School budget, con’t from page 1 in students this past year,” said Steve Nielsen, the school district business manager. Who reports that a decrease of 55 students this year equals a minimum of, $330,000 direct revenue loss from the state to the schools. The May 8th school board meeting was met with a slightly smaller crowd, and much more creative energy. Small breakout groups were formed with the goals to identify what is of utmost importance when considering school functioning, what the school structure might look like considering budget cuts. Led by Anita Leach, the groups were able to identify and explain their findings and present them to the school board. The board, met with such an outpouring of involvement and viable ideas to sift through, agreed to postpone the date of the Budget Committee meeting and look into the possibility of filing for an extension with the Oregon Department of Education to delay the June 30th budget deadline. Concern was stated by board member Keri Sanders that delaying budget decisions may jeopardize the job search for those who may be laid off. Most groups presented consolidation of the schools to Mill City Middle School and Santiam High, essentially closing Gates Elementary. There were several different considerations on on what ages
would be housed together. One group suggested to keep all three buildings open, have each school individually look at cutting $125,000 from budget, consider a levy, and agressively recruit drop-out students to return. An overwhelming majority agreed that maintaining staff that has direct involvement with the student’s lives ie: the teachers and aides, was of highest priority, while minimizing and/or eliminating administrative positions. Everything from lawn mowing and decreasing busing to selling timber and property was considered. One subject in particular to receive much discussion was how could we possible feed all the children from one cafeteria, should the schools be consolidated to Mill City. “Just for the record, I went to school here 1-8 and High School, and we all ate lunch here - and it worked,” said Carol Cree, teacher at SHS. A follow up meeting date was not immediately agreed upon, but will be announced soon. At this point the school board has less than two months to present a viable plan. Said school board member Rick Posekany, in closing, “this is your school, you elected us, and we are thankful for that and your presence. We’re all in this together, let’s not be divided.”

In response to school district budget crisis, local parents and community members gather to strategize for the future
Two weeks ago, a group of parents, grandparents and community members gathered to discuss the Santiam Canyon School District’s budget crisis as presented to the public at a recent special school board meeting. The group, now known as the Parent Advocacy Group, gathered to speak freely, openly and honestly about their concerns - and to share any constructive information that may help in the unexpected budget crisis. The first meeting drew about 30 attendees, and a confidential online Facebook group was created to share updates and facilitate the discussion. Now, the group has grown to over 130 members in just one weeks’ time. “We need anyone and everyone’s voice to be heard at this point,” said Parent Advocacy Group spokesperson Angie Fencl. “The school budget has to be finalized by June 30, although it’s my understanding the board can file for an extension if they wish. The public was just made aware of this budget crisis on April 23. I feel confident in saying that collectively the public is outraged that we learned of a $750,000 shortfall and the possibility of closing a school at the end of a school year. Communication is
just not there and our goal is to fix that issue—we are working with the board and the superintendent at this point.” The Parent Advocacy Group is working to gather practical, alternative options to share with the school board as to how the $750,000 could be cut. “In the end, the purpose of school is to provide a safe environment. We need to keep teachers,” said Fencl. “We need everyone to keep in mind that this discussion is about practical ways to get our children the best education possible. We are doing our best to rally for the teachers and therefore we feel that it’s in their best interest not to participate in this parent group. The last thing we want is for their job or their spouse’s job to be on the line. We want positive outcomes.” The Parents of the Canyon strive to support Santiam Canyon School District board, staff and students by researching and proposing options for the school district’s future. Contact Fencl at 503-302-6722 to contribute ideas or to learn how to get involved. The group meets on a weekly basis and the next Parent Advocacy Group meeting is on Thursday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Canyon Critters Preschool in Mill City.

ACT to perform GROW offers final series of free classes Nunsense this week
GROW North Santiam (Economic Development Corp) presents a brand new class called “Small Steps, Big Results.” Using a fun, intuitive process, entrepreneurs will work on a big business goal to create tangible, measurable results by the end of the six-week period. This class is for anyone who likes a little structure, likes working in the company of others, or rarely gets time to just sit, think and plan for the business. It will be held at Trexler Farm 8am-10am on six consecutive Tuesday mornings starting May 22. Also offered is one final Marketing Boot Camp for entrepreneurs who want more in depth “how to” marketing help, including how to write an effective ad, what to write on a website, using online marketing strategies effectively, and being more effective with packaging, visual merchandising, trade shows and other marketing avenues. All marketing questions will be answered and all marketing secrets will be revealed! Four Thursday mornings 8am-10:30am at Canyon’s Edge Cafe in Sublimity (marketing tips & conversation 8 to 8:30am; “how
to” class 8:30 - 10:30am). These classes are open to anyone who is thinking about starting a business or has one already with five or fewer employees. Residents of GROW’s Aumsville to Idanha territory are invited to attend as are people living in Silverton, Sweet Home and Lebanon, plus the rural areas in between.

We promise you will learn something of value and have fun doing it!”

Boy Scouts compete at Camporee
Local kids earns 1st blue ribbon in troop history, at Fishermen’s Bend The Willamette Chapter of the Boy Scout Camporee was held at Fishermen’s Bend last weekend, hosting over 475 campers from the mid-Willamette Valley area. This once a year camp draws around 45 different patrols in the district compete to against each other in a weekend long event. The boys participate in many events including teepee building, archery, primitive fire starting, tomahawk throwing, overall patrol spirit and orienteering. Marcus Burks, a local scout master, ran the path finding station where campers use orienteering skills with a compass and a map to navigate their way through a course. The local Boy Scout Troop #449 placed in the top third in events overall, earning them a first place blue ribbon. “I’m very proud that these boys. They earned the first Blue Ribbon at Camporee in the history of the troop,” said Marcus Burks.

Each boy also participated in a designated service project. There were 4 designated sites overseen by one of the Fish-Bend rangers: Steve, Josh, Dan and Mark. They were assisted by volunteers: Floyd and Opal, Bill and Shirley, Mike and Sheila and Bill and Rose. The projects included pulling noxious invasive weeds (Scotch Broom), spreading gravel at campsites and trails and laying ground cover. In all, they were able to get 80 yards of gravel spread and 5-6 pickup loads of weeds pulled. Gates area scout, Aaron Burks, is currently a Life Scout working towards attaining his Eagle Scout. He also is a member of the Order of the Arrow, a society of the Boy Scouts who run the entire Camporee event, an honor bestowed to just 10 scouts. Next weekend, Troop 449 are heading to Silver Falls Park for their annual 2 day camp out and 7 mile hike, and then will be holding Color-guard at Fairview Cemetery on Monday.

Volleyball clinic raises $400 for Lady Wolverines
Bump, spike score! Keep the ball off the floor! Forty-eight girls, grades 1-8, packed the Santiam High School gym last weekend for the first annual Lady Wolverine Volleyball Clinic. Initiated by coaches Alicia Corey (Varsity) and Charla Howard (JV) and assisted by the high school team members, the event raised $400 in funds that will go towards new uniforms and volleyballs
this year. Last year the volleyball team earned $1,800 by completing work at the US Forest Service in Detroit, which they used to purchase a new game net and updated aluminum net stands. “I am extremely happy with the interest and turn out of the volleyball clinic - and I am very proud of the high school girls that helped instruct and coach the participants.” “It just goes to show how important sports and activities are to the kids in our schools and that (the kids) are more than willing to go out and work for the additional funding of these programs,” said Coach Alicia Corey.

The Odd Couple, Santiam High Drama style Santiam High School honor thespians Christine Morreira, Natazha Howard, and Guillermo Salinas showcased their talents as stage actors last week in their final appearance as SHS students. Their laugh-provoking performance of the female version of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple proved the perfect format to experience an in-depth look at their skills. Howard played the character Olive Madison, a redheaded-sportswriter-divorcee with a distaste for homemaking skills, while Morreira was a more than believable Florence Unger - an uptight perfectionist recently dumped by her husband. Salinas shows up as a handsome Spanish neighbor, Manolo, who is seeking female companionship with his roommate, Jesus. Directed by Bill Brown, the remaining cast included Rebecca Marr, Lauren Hebing, Saman-
tha McClintock, Serena Pond and Chase Howard. Stage crew and assistance: Braydon Mizell, Brittney Thompson, McKenzie Reeser, Thomas Sextom, Alisha Clarck, Harli Davidson, Brice Mizell, Olivia Santos, and Alexis Strong.

The Detroit Lake Fishing Derby returns again this year, just in time to kick-off the summer fishing season on the cool waters of the reservoir. “They’ve been stocking the heck out of the lake, so the fishing has been great,” said organizer Dean O’Donnell. This is the 30th annual event for Detroit, a summer highlight put on by the Detroit Lake Recreation Area Business Association. This year’s weekend event will be on May 18-19, 6am4pm and May 20, 6am-2pm. Part of the fun comes from the chance to be a part of the winner’s circle, by catching one of ten tagged fish - or by catching any fish and entering the raffle. Tagged fish bring some cash, and raffle winners get a chance at a 14-foot Smoker Craft fishing boat, or new bikes for both girls and boys grand prize ticket holders. The winner’s ceremony starts on Sunday at 3pm. Entry fees are $15 for adults, $8 for children 13 and under. All proceeds go to fund the annual Fireworks Over the Lake show on Saturday, June 30. Special thanks to event sponsors: Riverview Community Bank. EZ Loader Boat Trailer Co., Steven’s Marine, Smoker Craft, All Seasons RV & Marine and Pautzae Fire Bait.

The weather god was friendly to our group of boaters on Saturday, May 5. Participants from North Santiam River Guides Association, Steelheaders Salem Chapter, and North Santiam Watershed Council took driftboats, rafts, and kayaks down the North Santiam from Mehama to Stayton on a Learn the River trip. The clubs provided experienced leaders so others could refresh their memories about the variables on this twelve mile section of river. The river level was somewhat high but less than flood stage. Packsaddle flow was 4,000 cfs and Mehama flow was 7,680 cfs and 6.4 feet on the gauge at Mehama. Basically, all of the boats drifted down the center
of the river and rowed around the sides of the three or four big rapids.
