Joanne Hebing of Mill City is a mother and a grandmother an active proponent of developing a skate park in Mill City. Each week, Mrs. Hebing has been submitting reasons why she believes a skate park would be a good thing for any community. The Mill City Skate Park Committee meets at least each month which are announced on their Facebook page: Mill City Skate Park Project: https://www. Skating in a park is much safer than skat-

ing in the streets. In 2006, 42 riding skatboarders died. Of those, 40 of them were not in a skatepark and 27 of those involved a motor vehicle. In other words, of these 42 deaths, 40 of them might have been prevented had the person been skating in a skatepark instead of the street. Our community already has a lot of skateboarders. The skatepark visitors are ready to go. We don’t need to wait and hope that patronage emerges over time. They are here now.

Art Beat on the street David Hillesland

David Hillesland of the Little North Fork area of Lyons says he never was very artistic until he gave woodcarving a try early in 2009. By the Fall of the same year he and his wife founded the business Oregon Chainsaw Sculptures. What this man does with a chainsaw and a block of wood is nothing short of inspirational. He credits this to his faith. “I believe that I have been given

a gift from God, and before I start each project I pray for the Lord to direct my hand.” Hillesland wrote on his website. He donates 10% of future orders the Veterans Eagle Series to the V.A in his effort to Pay it Forward. You might find Hillesland working on one of his creations at the crossing of the Little North Fork Road and Hwy 22 this summer on the weekends.

Santiam’s New Cafe a hit with Students and Staff The Switchback Cafe at Santiam Jr/Sr High officially opened at the beginning of this school year under the guidance of Youth Transition Teacher, Debbie Fawcett. It is located in a small out-building across from the high school gymnasium and is opened for students and staff during regular school hours serving up hot and cold coffee drinks. The focus of the program is connecting kids with vocational rehab that might otherwise have a barrier to employment. “We get them into Job experiences and job shadows, all all venues related to the world of work,” said LBL ESD youth transition specialist Clara Dawson. Santiam currently has five Youth Transition Program (YTP) students. On an average day these young people are learning the ins and outs of running a small business. They helped to remodel the building with the help of Dan Benjamin Construction. Each attended barista training and obtained food handler permits. Some have even obtained their CPR cards.
