Fire Destroys Nail Salon/Soap Factory in Mill City

An early morning fire engulfed the building at 239 SW Broadway in Mill City, completely detroying one of the newest businesses in town, the Pure Indulgence Nail Salon. The

fire was dispatched to Mill City Fire Department 1:30 am, and the crew was able to knock it flat by 2:02, but by then the contents, including the enitre hand made soap factory, were ruined. The business is owned by Kacy Bear and her mother Kristine Dodge and they suspect arson. Kacy reports that several people saw someone fleeing the scene as the back of the building exploded in flames. Linn County Sheriff’s office Detective

Scott Christensen calls the fire “suspicious” but falls short of labeling it arson. “It’s a slow process, and it remains under investigation,” said Christensen. He encourages anyone with any information to contact him at (541) 990-8901. The owners Kacy and Kristine are holding up “ok”. The two were already in the midst of remodeling and preparing to move to their new location on Wall St. in Mill City when the fire happened. “I’m strong.. I’m not going to let this stop me. We will re-open the shop as soon as possible,” said Kacy Bear.

Traveling father and son find lifeblood on the river Jackson’s teeth were chattering so much he could barely talk. We were standing on the riverbank of the North Santiam and my son, I am sure, was feeling like it was a closer to a class VI river, rather than class II, after the swim he’d just taken. Thanks to our serendipitous encounter, earlier at the put-in with two kayakers, Chris and Jerry, though, we had excellent river guides, extra clothes to wrap around my son’s legs, and I was able to hug my son close to lend my warmth to him. 15 minutes later he was able to continue. My wife and I agreed years ago that rivers, though ever-present, powerful, poetic, and the lifeblood of our whitewater-paddling existence were only part of the picture. There is also: The wonderful community we, as “river people” become a part of; the confidencebuilding, being in crashing whitewater, using a mental checklist, remaining as cool-headed as possible. It was great for me when I started paddling at 30. I can’t even imagine what this does by Bart Rankin

Your overall intensive, issue-specific approach to body wellness.

for my young son. And, finally, in a world where everyone in a family is going about things on their own, thanks to modern life’s conveniences of central air-conditioning, computers and smart-phones, our children are truly left to their own devices. In this world of countless creature-comforts, for my son to seek the basic human need for shelter from the elements, at this time when he is soon to exit this meeting of river, earth, air, new friends and, well, fear. The fear that hits us the moment we exit our mother’s warm womb... Wow. Maybe somewhere in his neuro-circuitry, a connection was made, confidence was found, and truly, (in the same way that his brain made a new connection) with his arms around me, in a moment of absolute survival-instinct-mediated need, he and I made a connection, not just as father and son, but as two people who truly need each other. I don’t know. Maybe the river is our lifeblood after all. Bart Rankin and his wife, Rhonda are “traveling physical therapists” who out of necessity (and desire) homeschool their 10-year-old son, Jackson (pictured here at Hammond park) while living in a 32 foot RV.

Bill Sanderson River Report 7-18-2013

Water and weather conditions have been wonderful last week and it looks like more of the same for next several weeks. Occasional rainy surprises happen, but the forecast is for warm and dry weather. Water temperature is very favorable in the upper North Santiam, and too warm in the Willamette and main Santiam. All the fish in those waters will want to come up the North Santiam because of the better conditions.    Scenic trips have been awesome. The river has been around 1,360 cubic feet per second flow at Niagara and around 3.4 feet deep at Mehama.  Many of the rocks are covered over and there are clear channels through all the gravel bars and ledges. Experts can pick their way around the river but some novices have been washed into branches along the riverside in a few locations.    Directly under the highway and railroad bridges in Mill City, Mil l City Falls is a very steep drop into a large pool that extends downstream and includes Hammond Eddy, on the North shore about one hundred yards below the Falls. Another hundred yards below Hammond Eddy, Mill City Bar is an accumulation of massive boulders in the middle of the river. There are two channels on the far South side of the river that boats can float through. There is a channel on the North side of the river that has branches sticking out in the river and underwater. Mill City Fire Department has had three rescue events with kayaks that were stuck in the branches. Chief Leland Ohrt has quickly responded and saved lives at this difficult spot.  River running has always been a risk adventure, and experienced boaters can control the risks by developing river knowledge and technical skills. Inexperienced boaters need to learn both the knowledge and techniques before drifting alone. Chief Ohrt does not have enough time to deal with all the inexperienced boaters that come out in inner tubes on hot days. Novices have good choices.  They may follow experienced boaters or participate in “Learn the River” trips. Guides are available. Call or email me for more information. There will be a pot-luck dinner, barbecue, and fishing clinic at  North  Santiam  State Park  on Tuesday late afternoon July 16.  A driftboat will be available at the Park Hole to demonstrate plug pulling and diver and shrimp techniques. The boat can take two people at a time to give short demonstrations, and other clinic demos may be available. Tom Khaffun is organizing the clinic.  We know that some spoon rods will be demonstrated, and perhaps also some bobber and jig rigging.  Barbecue fires will be started around 5:00 p.m. and dinner will be around 6. Attendees are expected to be telling fish stories and discussing river conditions and recent outings. Since the air temperature is expected to be around 90 later this week, and since the river temperature is around 60, people on the river will be cooler and more comfortable than those humans that are landlocked. The time is right for some time on the river.   5

Drinking and driving end in serious wreck on Little North Fork A Salem man is in critical condition and another under arrest following a single-vehicle crash near Gates. Marion County Deputies were called at 8:15pm, Sunday, to the 35000 block of North Fork Road. They found a white 2007 heavily damaged. Suzuki had crashed into a tree. The preliminary investigation by Sr. Deputy Jerry Wollenschlaeger and Deputy Sean Banks revealed that the car had been traveling down the hill on North Ford Road when it failed to negotiate a left turn and crashed into a tree. The turn is the beginning of an “S” turn and is prominently

marked with warning signs and arrows. The car left the roadway before crashing into the tree. Deputies learned that the car had been occupied by five people. The driver was identified as Zachariah Quinn Buczynski, 20, of Salem. Buczynski was uninjured. A rear seat passenger was identified as Nathaniel Miller, 20, of Salem. Miller received critical head injuries when the car impacted the tree. He was flown by helicopter to the Oregon Health & Sciences University Hospital in Portland. He remains there in critical condition. The passenger in the right front seat was a male in his 20’s. He walked away from

the scene after the crash but was later found by an Oregon State Trooper and returned to the crash site. He was treated for a minor head wound. His name is not available at this time. Two female passengers in their 20’s were uninjured. They were riding with Miller in the rear passenger area. Their names are not available at this time. Deputies found open containers of alcohol in the vehicle. Buczynski was transported to the hospital for treatment of a minor injury. He admitted drinking before the crash., was arrested and booked at the Marion County Jail; charged with Driving under the Influence, Assault 3, and three counts of Reckless Endangerment. He posted bail Monday evening and was released pending his next court appearance.
