Kimmel Park vandalized, so kids clean up

On Wednesday May 1 at 3:42 in the morning Linn County Sheriff’s Department got a call, there was a dark colored crew cab pickup driving dangerously in Kimmel Park in Mill City. It was too dark for the caller to see the license plate, but what was seen in the morning throughout the park was an ugly mess. The truck had left swirls of deeps ruts through the outfield of the ballpark and play areas, and trash and

clods of dirt were strewn upon the infield. The Mill City-Gates Recreation. Association grades 5/6 baseball team were to have their first game coming up the next week, but the playing area was unusable. Yet that didn’t slow them down one bit. The boys and their coaches were out on the field, first thing Friday morning, with their wheelbarrows and rakes and by the end of the day they could call it good, and

all of them could make a mamma proud! Many thanks to North Santiam Paving for the donation of dirt, to Lindemann Construction for donating the dump truck and delivering the dirt, and to the Wolverines Working for You for use of their equipment. Linn County Sheriff’s Department has issued no citations on this crime yet, but encourage anyone with information to please contact them at (541)967-3950.

Spring is officially here and the Canyon is buzzing with events and activities. First off, May 17-19 marks Detroit Lake’s 31st annual Fishing Derby. (See back cover for details.) Next, the CanyonArts Festival is just around the corner! On May 25 the Santiam

Canyon’s premiere art festival that fills the grounds of Santiam Elementary.featuring the unveiling of the mural project, live music throughout the day, clown classes, bicycle powered spin-art, and a full house of art-

ists and crafters and food vendors, with free face painting and many children’s games and activities--all for FREE! Also May 25 Fishermen’s Bend kicks off the camping season with the River Rats (cont. on back page)

Hearts to Arts showcases Love, Peace and Harmony this Saturday in Mill City

Press Release - The Santiam Community Chorus, in conjunction with the Santiam High School American Pop Culture class, is pleased to present their Spring performance at the Santiam High School auditorium on May 11, 7pm. Admission is free. Of course, donations are always welcome. Jo Ann Hebing, the chorus director, and all the chorus members, are volunteers who simply love music. Even the students are volunteer performers. Tom Cole, of the popular Stoddard and Cole duo, will accompany the chorus for several numbers. Choral selections include music from all over the world in a program celebrating love, tolerance and global peace.

This program theme ties back to last year’s Black History Month performance, which promoted greater appreciation and understanding of all cultures. On the same theme, next year’s spring performance will focus on Holocaust Remembrance Day, in recognition of the millions who lost their lives for lack of tolerance. Santiam Hearts to Arts, a 501c3 non-profit organization, brings cultural opportunities to Santiam Canyon communities and supports the expenses of both the chorus and a part of the Pop Culture class. In today’s world, every day the news carries stories of hatred, injustice and war. This performance uses music to remind us that everyone can be a steward of peace. It takes just one voice. 1

Santiam Canyon school board candidate statements

The Canyon Weekly has invited all the Santiam Canyon School District Board candidates to submit up to 300 words to be priinted in the weeks prior to the election. Candidates seeking the first seat were featured in the April 17 edition, the second seat in the April 24 edition, 3 seat May 1, 4th seat May 8, and seat 2-1 will be printed on May 15. All past issues can be read for free at

Zone 1- Position 4 SCSD Candidates that there is much more to learn. Glenn Wright ingIf you elect me, my focus would be on:

I decided to run for school board because I want to our schools progress in a positive direction for the future. I have a no-nonsense attitude of get in and get it done, which I’ve lived by all my life. My goal is NOT to focus on the past, but on a positive future for our children. In the past few years, I have worked as a substitute custodian, and volunteered in many areas at the schools, including helping to get GE moved to its new home; I spearheaded the dismantling and reassembly of the playground, and through personal contact with vendors, was able to obtain all of the materials and equipment donations to get the small structure rebuilt without cost to the district. A good part of my summer was spent using my carpentry skills to help the teachers get their new classrooms ready. That time spent in and around the schools has helped me to understand many of the challenges that are faced because of our aging buildings and deferred maintenance. I have attended every board meeting in the last year, and have studied about the responsibilities of a school board member. I feel my efforts led to a deeper understanding of our district, still know-

1) Closer harmony between the school board, community, staff and superintendent. 2) Working towards more stable funding sources, and maximizing the resources we already have, including what to do with the Gates property. 3)Increasing curriculum opportunities for high school students Existingqualities: •Prior business experience,40+yearsselfe mployment • Time, dedication, and willingness to serve • Ability to set aside personal feelings for the greater good Thank you,Glenn N.

Fire Department Fundraiser a Huge Success

The Gates Fire Department fund raising concert hosted last week by the Gates Fire district Emergency Services Support non-profit was definitely a successful event according to concert organizer Fire Chief Gary R. Swanson. “Wow, we exceeded all our expectations for dollars raises. We were just a few dollars short of $8,000 for the project. That should enable us to purchase the three pieces of equipment targeted to meet department needs: 1) an AED for the community

convening space, 2) a new CPR training mannequin, and 3) a set of vehicle stabilization struts to be used at MVA incidents. We owe a special thanks to all our volunteers for their countless hours of work to prepare the event, and to our musicians who volunteered their time for three months to bring together a great show for our audience.” Chief Swanson went on to say, “the people in the community really supported this event. We had a great response to our spon-

sorship campaign, we had nearly 240 people attend the show over two nights, and numerous people simply donated funds in the mai and at the door as additional support for our project. It is so rewarding to see this level of community support for the work we do in the fire department. On behalf of the firefighters, board members of the Fire district and GFDESS, and all our volunteers, I say thank you for the support from our community and from those outside our community.”

graduated from Santiam High School in 1993. I am currently employed and have worked as a firefighter/paramedic for the City of Salem for the past twelve years. My motivation to run for this position comes directly from our children’s education and our pride in the community. Considering the economic challenges we face day to day, the school budget must be justified with concrete benefits and future cost savings. Our town is not immune to the current economic conditions and because of this I believe careful fiscal management must be a priority for the school system and our community. I also believe that a dynamic team is unstoppable and I would like to be a part of that team. I am optimistic for the future of the school district and feel that we can overcome any obstacle when the students’ best interests are our number one priority. I feel that professionalism, credibility, honesty, and integrity are a few of the qualities that should be expected and demanded of all district employees and board members. I look forward the opportunity to work with the educators and staff members as my children continue through the school system. If elected, it will be important to remain active in the community during my time spent on the school board. This will ensure the ideas and opinions of students, parents, and residents are in-

cluded in any decision making process. I am committed to working collaboratively with the other school board members and staff. I am certain that we can provide an exceptional education for our students while still managing to control costs. This will allow us to maintain the integrity of the Santiam Canyon while also making it a desirable community that we can be proud of.

Derek Ownby Let me begin by introducing myself. My wife and I are relatively new to the canyon. We moved to Mill City on Labor Day 2011 so I could become the Youth Pastor at Mill City Baptist Church. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree from Union University in Youth Ministry focusing in at risk teens. I have worked with youth in lower income and rural areas since 2004. I have coached football at the middle school and high school level since 2002. I have worked or volunteered in education since 2009 primarily in tutoring and special education environments. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Education in Special Education. The pursuit of being on the Santiam Canyon School Board is not a political one for me. I want to see the students of this district have every opportunity to be successful. I believe we need to pursue every

avenue of funding possible to establish a meaningful alternative education program and re-establish electives in our schools. I also believe we need to repair our facilities by establishing a priority based system to assign appropriate funding. I look forward to the opportunity to serve the communities of The Santiam Canyon in any way possible. I ask you to please consider me and give me this opportunity. I humbly request your vote. Sincerely, Derek Ownby

More kids to make a momma smile

This past week proved to be a plthora of photo ops for kids of al ages. The first Grade classes at Santiam Elementary spent their time on Earth day joyfullytidying up the grounds of thier school. Below, Members of the Local girl scout troop 10118 had a big day last Saturday. First they visited CCTV in Salem to film a clip on why they liked girl scouts with training coordinator Greg Hiltz. Then after a picnic lunch at Deepwood Estates the girls toured the mansion there, and went on to tour the Bush House as well. Do you know some kids that make you smile? Send in a photo of their event and tell us a bit about it. We would love to share in the pride.

Bill Sanderson’s River Report May 8, 2013

503-897-3301 Little Meadows still has 26 inches of snow at 4,000 feet elevation a mile South of Detroit Lake. Recent warm weather is causing that to melt, and inflow into Detroit is still high enough to make for comparatively high releases into the North Santiam River below the Detroit Lake Dams. That snow will melt, and flows will decrease sometime in the near future. In addition to the snowmelt, we have a long history of mixed rainstorms and sunny weather in May and June. There is the possibility of an early summer, but we also have the possibility of additional rain. Detroit Lake is actually a foot higher than the normal summer level, so the Army Engineers are able to manage the lake and river using natural flows all summer. Willamette River temperatures have been variable around 60 degrees, and fish passage at Willamette Falls has been good some days and slow some days. So far, we have 8,341 Chinook salmon and 3,007 summer steelhead in the system. The winter steelhead run is practically over and the fish are spawning and returning to the ocean. Since the present river flow of 2,140 cubic feet per second at Packsaddle causes very large whitewater in the upper river, many boaters and anglers will choose to do river trips on lower river sections where the rapids are more moderate. Mill City or Fishermen’s Bend to Mehama is excellent for moderate whitewater and great scenery. Mehama to Stayton has a few good rapids and many riffles. There are some tricks to portaging the boat slide at Upper Bennett Dam, and precautions need to be taken there. It takes teamwork to get the boat into position and lowered down the ramp. One good reason to lower the boat down bow first is that if it stops suddenly the gear moves forward instead of out the back. It is a good idea to have a line on each end of the boat. Lack of

good technique and/or lack of teamwork can result in awkward situations. We recently had a learn the river trip in this section, and 17 boats participated. My boat went first and demonstrated poor technique. All other boats observed the problems and made good runs. We saw lots of birds and fish along the way and the weather was wonderful. Steelheaders Salem Chapter general membership meeting is on Tuesday May 21 at Keizer Community Center at 6:00 p.m. The program will be about river guiding on Willamette and Coastal rivers. North Santiam River Guides Association meets on Wednesday May 22 at Neufeldt’s Diner in Aumsville. The upcoming “Learn the River “ trip will be discussed along with other current fishing and river info.

The Fishermen’s Bend to Mehama trip is on June 1, and we shove off in the river at 10:00. Shuttle and breakfast can be done earlier. This is a beautiful section of river with large but not huge rapids. Prior whitewater experience is necessary for a safe trip. The trip from Packsaddle to Fishermen’s Bend is set for June 22, and we hope for good river and weather conditions so the trip does not need to be delayed. North Santiam River Trips offers both raft trips and driftboat trips on all sections of the North Santiam year around on a fee basis. Call or write for more information. Vacation rental cabins and houses are available, so people who want to get in on the best of the season for the North Santiam may reserve now for prime time. 7

A Mid Summer Night’s Dream: Shakespeare at Santiam

The Santiam drama class pulled off a thouroughy entertaining play this weekend adding a twist of modern times to the Shakespeare classic. Some seriously talented young thespians, musicians and dancers kept the audience in giggles, while the fantatsical forest onstage lulled us to be there in the woods. The excellent casting and thoughful song placement was perfect.

The proposed budget should provide the same level of service as previous fiscal years, but does not support unexpected expenditures. The Water System Improvement project funded with a 30-year revolving loan of $1.75 mill. by the Oregon Economic & Community Development Department was completed in the last quarter of 2011. Work included installation of a new water line, power lines and control lines to the Breitenbush pump station; replacement of an existing 15-hp pump with two redundant 20-hp pumps and related controls; construction of a 200,000-gallon reservoir with related controls; installation of an additional 25-hp pump at the Silver Bullet lift station and related controls; installation of a new master control unit at the water treatment plant and remote control units at the Breitenbush pump station and the Silver Bullet lift station.

Raised beds can come to the rescue

By Denise Ruttan

“By building raised beds, you instantaneously can have good garden loam,” said Ross Penhallegon, a horticulturist with the Oregon State University Extension Service. “Raised beds answer the question of how we garden in inhospitable areas that are too sandy, too wet or have too much clay.” Raised beds should be built in March and April. First select the plants you want and learn how deep their root sys-

tems grow. Raised beds are generally six to 12 inches high depending on the depth of the plant’s roots, Penhallegon said. Raised beds are typically three feet wide so you can reach across easily to weed and maintain the plants, he said. The bed can be as long as you want. After you build the structure framing the raised bed, fill it half way with loam. Using a three-tined garden fork, mix in an equal amount of organic matter such as compost, leaf mulch or animal manure. After the first

Highway 22 (503) 897-2614 Mill City, OR season of growing vegetables in the raised bed, add two to four inches of compost in October. Then in March or April, mix the compost into the soil using a garden fork. To build your raised bed, Penhallegon suggested using the following materials: Straw bales – Use straw from wheat, barley or other grains but do not use hay because it can contain weeds and seeds, he said. Bales should be free-standing. Dig a hole in the straw for each plant. The bales are especially good for growing carrots and potatoes. You can also plant peas or pole beans in them if you use a trellis. Fertilize and water by hand or use a soaker hose. The straw slowly composts for the plants, feeding them nutrients. Raw wood – Cedar is a good choice because it is fairly resilient, Penhallegon said. Coat boards with exterior latex paint, which is not as strong as chemical preservatives and can resist moisture. In choosing between raw and treated wood, decide how often you want to replace the wood as it decays faster when wet, he said. Treated wood – Wood that is treated with pre-

servatives such as pentachlorophenol, creosote and linseed oil lasts longer in rainy climates, Penhallegon said. Research shows that there is little likelihood of wood-preserving substances contaminating the soil, he added. Nevertheless, he still advised covering the wood with plastic sheeting or exterior latex paint to reduce the risk. Old tires – Old tires stacked on top of each other work especially well for potatoes. Concrete blocks – Concrete lasts a long time, absorbs heat well and is water-resistant, Penhallegon said. Stack one, two or three blocks high. Keep in mind that it is more expensive than wood. Look for inexpensive blocks that are cracked or chipped, he said. Railroad ties – Whether railroad ties are safe to use is hotly debated among researchers and the general public, Penhallegon said. “It’s been shown that there is very little creosote leakage out of railroad ties,” he said, “but that depends on how old they are, whether they’re damaged and how long they’ve been around. It’s very tough to say absolutes.” He recommends covering railroad ties with plastic sheeting to protect your plants.

extended illness. Eunice was born the youngest of 8 children to William and Christina Fransen in Hazelton, ND. She grew up in Hazelton and married Uno Jalmer Juhola in 1945, where they had four sons. After leaving N. Dakota, they moved to Bend in 1963, where they stayed until 1983. During her time in Bend, Eunice worked as a bartender, sold insurance for AAA, and was a long-time Avon representative. She sewed and crocheted, and kept

Robert “Bob” Glen Shelton 1934-2013 Robert “Bob” Glen Shelton, 79, of Springfield, died April 4, 2013 of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Bob was born on March 21, 1934 in Stayton, Oregon to Glen and Bertha (Valencourt) Shelton. Bob served in the US Army where he was stationed in Fort Sill, OK and Fort Bliss, TX. He graduated from Oregon State University in 1959 with a B.S. degree in Pharmacy. He worked as a Pharmacist for over 50 years and was the owner and operator of stores in San Jose, CA and Sunriver, OR. Bob enjoyed hiking, traveling, gardening, watching the Beavers and Duck games, and spending time with his family and grandchildren. He was also an Elder and member of the Northwood Christian Church and 12

busy with her many friends and hobbies. After Uno’s retirement, they moved to the Santiam Canyon to be closer to their children and grandchildren. At their home in Mill City, she became an avid gardener and landscaper; she pointed, and Uno planted! Eunice worked magic in the kitchen, and she was famously known for her homemade buns, dill pickles, buttermilk chocolate cake and peanut-butter thumbprint cookies (better known as “fat pills”), along with jams and jellies, and really great mojakka and goulash. And don’t forget the Lefse! She was always up for a game of poker, although she never stopped at just one. She loved adventures to play the slot machines, and she had the best luck of anyone around; probably because she was not afraid of losing. The last few years of her life, Eunice was blessed to be able to live with her grandchildren Angie and Dale Hopson and their 3 children, Lily, Shaden and little Jack, who took amazing care of her with special help from Dale’s parents, Jack and Janelle Hopson.

Eunice is preceded in death by her husband and perfect match, Uno, in 1995. She also grieved the loss of her son William, grandson Eric Tapio Juhola, and granddaughter RaeAnn. Survivors include her sister, Grace Ragle from Minnesota, her sons Jimmy of Bridgeport, Kelton of Mill City, and Eric of Burns, and daughter-in-law Roseanna of Mill City. She will also be greatly missed by 9 grandchildren; Angie (Dale Hopson) and Joleen, Eli, Paul, SueAnn, Krystal (Kenny Self) and Amber (Jesse Duncan), as well as Amy (John Farrell) and Becky; 11 great-grandchildren, and a multitude of nieces, nephews and special friends who loved her very much. A Celebration of her life was held Saturday, May 4 at her home on the North Fork in the Santiam Canyon. Goodbye Maw, we will miss you. “POT’S RIGHT!!”

he volunteered at Volunteers in Medicine. Bob married Vera M. Loucks in Mill City, OR on May 15, 1954. He is survived by his wife; four children: daughter, Catherine Marshall (Jim) of Henderson, KY; son, Steven Shelton (Val) of Bend, OR; daughter, Lori Hawker (Barry) of Gilbert, AZ; and daughter Karen Shelton-Mur (Andres) of Arlington, VA; sister, Vivian Miller of Hillsboro, OR; sister Doris Hoff of Vancouver, WA; brother, Tom

Shelton (Ruby) of Gresham, OR; sister, Ellen Jull of Salem, OR; 7 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. His parents and sister, Frieda Bassett preceded him in death.
