Residents concerned about Detroit Lake shoreline project

Locals get ready for youth benefit golf tourney

USFS holds open house to get local input, address changes

It’s a project that’s meant to bring visitors - and dollars - to the Detroit economy. It’s also a project that’s causing some concern among residents who live on Detroit Lake - particularly those who live on a short stretch near Detroit Flats. Last year, local agencies began the process to develop walking paths, wildlife watching and more camping areas on the northeast side of the lake. At a recent public meeting about the proposed plans, called the Detroit Lake Recreation Enhancement and Shoreline Restoration Design Project, it was apparent that some concerns from meetings held last year still remain unanswered.

“Who is going to police all the people coming,” asked one resident. Others wanted to know about a particular stretch of shoreline that designers had cut off from boat access. Near Detroit Flats, designers proposed creating series of islands with connecting bridges for walking use. The problem, said residents, is that the bridges would create a barrier and would prevent them from mooring their boats where they do now - at the shore in front of their home. The shoreline is public property, but some homeowners argue that they are assessed higher taxes for their prime location. The islands and (cont’d on back page)

Save the date, August 13th, as the Cascade Foothills Saturday Faire returns this year as a one day only don’t miss event. Artists, crafts-people, farmers and performers from the North Santiam Canyon and beyond will gather at the green space right off Highway 22 in Gates to share their talents and their wares. This year’s festival, hosted by the North Santiam Chamber of Commerce, is sure

to have something for everyone. Many of the vendors from years past plan on returning including Fresh to You Produce and Why Not tie dye wearable art, and several new vendors and businesses are planning on joining in. “We’re also expanding the hours to 9:30-5:30 and increasing the availability of food, and places to sit and relax while listening to live music,” said Cathy Morris, event coordinator.

Cascade Foothills Saturday Faire Expands

Tickets to Shakespeare Festival, Reno coach trip among prizes Local organizer Mike Long knows that not everybody can be Tiger Woods. “We have some really good players, but some that just play every once in awhile,” said Long. Perhaps that’s why the Youth Benefit Golf Tournament has several categories, including the Hardly Ever Played Division. Mike Long, wife Jan and son Joe (pictured above) won’t be playing in the tournament at Elkhorn Golf Course - they’ll be taking care of the 120 expected players at the August 6 event, including making sure the free food and drinks out on the course ensure everyone has enough energy to give it their all. The annual tournament serves as a fundraiser for local youth causes. Last year, they distributed $9,000 in scholarships and other awards. This year, they’re hoping to beat that, said Long. “The ultimate goal is to have fun.” Prizes include golf for four at Pumpkin Ridge, dinner at Giovanni’s Pizza and a Gene’s Meat Market gift certificate, brunch at Orchard Hearts Winery, four dozen Titelist golf balls, and 18 holes with cart at Elkhorn Valley. Registration: $100/player. Visit for more information.

Fairview Cemetery gets mapped on website, volunteers requested to help update

Summer’s on its Way! Residential & Commercial Remodeling

Lyons, OR • CCB #114169

The Gates area cemetery, locally known as the gathering place for honoring veterans and local heros, has been mapped, photographed and indexed by a California man, Jay C. Wood. In 2009, Wood located and photographed over 1,600 grave sites - then he indexed and posted them in an easy, online format. He includes information about the cemetery history - including that it used to be called King’s Prairie Burying Ground and that it’s voluntarily run by local resident Dan Lemke, through donations. While mapper Jay C. Wood doesn’t live in the area, he says on the website, “I indexed this cemetery because I

have over thirty ancestors and relatives there...Each entry contains only what is on the marker but there are a couple of exceptions to that. I could not resist to include “Carl” and “Gladys” to Lester C. Chance and Lena G. Chance - since I and probably everybody else never knew them by any other name but Carl and Gladys.” Wood has indexed three other California cemeteries, as well. Locals can see his work (and offer corrections and suggestions) at Wood will return to the area August 6, 9am to get an update. Volunteers are requested to help with his historical efforts.

School district Hall of Fame chooses recipients, seeks award night sponsorships Information sought about whereabouts of award winners from the 1981 Girl’s Varsity Basketball team Sponsors are sought to help recognize the 2011 Santiam Canyon School District’s Hall of Fame winners in four categories: • Former staff: Paula Hilgers (Business Teacher) and Vern Peterman (former Mill City Elementary/Jr. High Principal) • Former student: Patrick Moore (1985) • School supporter/booster: Mill City Lion’s Club • Former team: 1981 Santiam High School Girl’s Basketball Team. These recipients will be recognized at the 9th Annual Hall of Fame Banquet on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 7pm at the high school commons. Anyone with information to the


whereabouts of the 1981 Girl’s Varsity Basketball players are asked to contact (503)897-2311, david.plotts@santiam. Sponsorships are being sought for award winner biographies hung at the school. (Due to funding issues, dollars normally set aside for the Hall of Fame are needed for after school activities.) Over eight years, the banquet recognized over 50 past students, staff, teams and other supporters - many who have accomplished great things here and elsewhere. Their biographies are posted in the high school gymnasium. The Hall of Fame committee is looking for individual sponsors ($150) or all recipient sponsors ($600).

The Ultimate Stay-cation: Local retailer offers hydrotherapy with a natural twist With the average family vacation running about $1600, local spa dealer and Idanha resident Ron McFarland is seeing a growing trend among Santiam Canyon residents. Those who have secure positions are investing in their own personal pleasure with hydrotherapy (and further supporting our local businesses) rather than spending more on fuel to drive somewhere. And they’re doing it with 4% interest rates (OAC) on an investment that can last up to 25 years. “If you’ve got a vacation home, you’ve got to have a place to relax,” said McFarland of Clearwater Spas. An entry level spa runs around $1,000 used and $3199 new. That’s one-two

family vacations - and this one will last year-round. McFarland recommends avoiding state fair dealers because, “We spent $40,000 one year for a booth. Fair dealers have to make enough money to pay for that.” Clearwater Spas is all about conserving resources, too. They offer a natural enzyme water cleaner that actually eats the contaminants that cause bacteria to grow. One 2oz bottle of Water’s Choice lasts 4-6 months and keeps your spa water clean 3 times longer than traditional chemicals - saving water and time. Clearwater Spas is located on S. Commercial in Salem near Fred Meyer. Info: 503-370-8236 or Waters Choice:

MC National Night Out Celebration Aug 2

Mill City is getting pumped up to join their first National Night Out community party Tuesday, August 2, 7-9pm at Kimmel Park. Communities throughout North America have been participating for the past 28 years in neighborhood-based parties that aim to heighten crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Last year, over 37 million people in 15,110 cities, towns, and military bases participated. This year Mill City will join the fold! Organizer Greg Pisano, a whirlwind of energy, is the force behind bringing this important event home. “This program is really gathering mo-

mentum. I’m excited to see it all come together like this,” said Pisano. Highlights include fire truck rides for kids, free blood pressure readings by MC Fire Dept volunteers, Break the Chain Monster Truck, Canyon Crisis Center, free BBQ hot dogs and refreshments from Santiam Hearts to Arts and desserts from Downtown Waffles of Salem. Mill City Baptist Church will be there with a Dunk Tank and the Linn and Marion County Sheriffs Departments will be on hand. Come on out and meet your neighbors, men and women who dedicate their lives to public service, and help send a message to criminals that our communities look out for each other!

Local 4-H youth win top awards at fair Elijah Nielsen qualifies for state

The local Diamondback Clovers shined at the Linn County Fair last week in Albany with many awards and ribbons gained by these hard working youth. “These kids are there for six days...up at 5:30 in the morning to feed and groom and milk, then show their livestock. They are responsible for all the animal chores,” said Sheila Nielsen, mother of three young farmers. “The parents are there for back up and moral support.” That dedication was well rewarded. Elijah Nielsen was honored with several awards including: Intermediate Grand Champion Showmanship, Intermediate Citizenship Award, Reserve Champion Dairy Yearling Goat and Grand Champion in Dam and Daughter goats. Elijah and his dairy goats also qualified to show at the Oregon State fair at the end of August. Alicia Nolan won Grand Champion in sheep breed class. Trevor Tinney, Brady Mitchell, and Cody Miller shared the title of “Grand Champion Pen of Gilt Pigs”. Shyanne Ward was awarded Reserve Champion for Holland Lop Rabbit. Sam Studnick won Junior Citizenship Award. Danielle Kunkle and Allison Studnick both were in their first year of showing hogs, with Allison making it to the final round in Junior Showmanship. Kelsey Pollard is in her second year of showing hogs and has the honor of be4

ing the 4-H club’s expert hog shower. Emma Stearns placed third in Meat Doe breed class, and Lynzee Smith came and helped with all the animals. The young “Cloverbuds” showed their rabbits and chickens Saturday. They include Preston Tinney, Alex Mitchell, Grace Lindemann, Ellie Lindemann, Katelynn Ward, Ella Miller, Tanner Manning, Alissa Humphreys, Luke Nielsen, Elijah Nolan, Kirsty Pollard, Ethan Breen, Levi Ohrt, Nolan Ohrt, and Maddie Forste. Nine Diamondback Clover members marketed hogs, and one marketed sheep at the Linn County livestock auction on Saturday night. The Clovers would like to thank all the community supporters who came to purchase their market animals. Special thanks to their tireless leader, Amber Tinney. “Amber is absolutely the best 4-H leader ever! The calm in the storm. A real blessing to our community,” said Sheila Nielsen.

MCGRA Midget National baseball team finishes in top 8 at state tournament Local team takes sportsmanship award

Photos and story by Steve Nielsen

The McGRA Midget National (9 & 10 year olds) baseball team went 2 - 2 at the JBO State Tournament in Aloha last weekend and finished in the top eight out of 107 teams at their level in the state. League rival West Salem, who Mill City beat twice this year, won the State Tournament title. Mill City beat Silverton 8-4 on Thursday morning then lost to Yamhill-Carlton 6 to 5 on Thursday afternoon in a nail biter. Mill City then bounced back to knock off Sherwood 10 to 0 Friday morning followed by a tough 10 - 9 loss to Forest Grove on Friday afternoon. Forest Grove then went on to win again and took on West Salem for the Tournament title.

The boys performed very well and finished the season with a 16 - 5 overall record. Most importantly, the team received the Tournament Sportsmanship award, which the Committee sees as their most important award. Each boy received a medal and the team received a huge trophy for the achievement. Congratulations to the team on a great season, and for doing it with class! A big thank you goes to the parents and grandparents for all of their support, super-fan Judy Hugenberger for coming to all the district playoff games in Brownsville and the Coaches: Head Coach Dan Cunderman, and Assistants Steve Sappington, Randy Moberg, Brad Mitchell and Clint Forste. Thank you also to Aniese Mitchell and Jennifer Kadin for keeping score all season.

Bill Sanderson’s River Report July 27, 2011


Fishermen’s Bend to Mehama is a delightful drift this time of year. There are dozens of moderate rapids and some fish in the eight mile drift. There are great parks and good access from shore. Packsaddle to Fishermen’s Bend has a lot of white water and many occasional boaters stay away from the risks involved with Spencer’s Hole, the Gorge, and Mill City Falls. For some experienced boaters, this section has lots of great scenery, quite a bit of solitude, and increasing numbers of fish. The steelhead bite had been soft and occasional last week from Packsaddle to Fishermen’s Bend and soft and seldom between Fishermen’s Bend and Mehama. On a recent trip, just below Minto we saw hundreds of steelhead scattered around ledges and rocks in classic locations. These fish were near the center of the river and in definite current. River temperature varies from 48 to 55 at Packsaddle and from 53 to 61 at Mehama. Fish around Mehama will probably go upstream to get into colder water as the sun warms up the river in the morning. As Packsaddle temperatures decrease, some of the fish will drop back down the river to warm up North Santiam River Guides Association will meet on July 27, Wednesday, at 6:00 p.m. in Aumsville at Neufeldt’s Restaurant. Dinner is optional. There will be a program on Tillamook Bay salmon fishing by Mike Woodward. Guests are welcome. Information is available about all North Santiam drifts and fish numbers.

(cont’d from front page)


393 N. Santiam Hwy. • Stayton, OR 97383



Also new this year will be Youth Space, hosted by The Canyon Weekly. For a $5 fee kids ages 6-18 can share a booth space with up to 3 other young entrepreneurs to sell their hand made arts and crafts and home grown goods. We ask that parents be on hand for the younger ones to help with money exchange and support. “We still have plenty of room to accommodate all, so new and potential vendors are encouraged to apply. This has proven to be a very successful venue for many artisans and businesses as the weekend traffic passing though has ample room to park and the signage and visibility of the fair is excellent,” reports

Morris. Vendor applications can be found by visiting the Chamber’s website, or by calling Cathy at 541-2586940 or Young vendors wanting to reserve a spot in Youth Space can call Karen at 503-990-3037, or email karen@thecanyonweekly. com. All items sold must be handcrafted, locally produced, or represented by an independent sales consultant of an approved business.
