Mill City man stabbed, suspect in jail threatened to shoot Sherman. Sherman reports he then grabbed an axe handle from his car, an object he keeps there to prop the hood up, and held it up in defense. (he denies having a baseball bat.) The females from the group then began striking Sherman in the face, backing him up his front walk. At that point he saw Sears approach from behind the women and felt as if he had been punched in the side. The group ran off whereupon Sherman discovered he had been stabbed. A neighbor came running to attend to Sherman. Medics from Mill City Fire and Lyons Fire Departments responded to the scene. Jason Sherman was transported to the Stayton Hospital where he underwent surgery for the stab wound. The knife damaged eight inches of muscle tissue, but managed to avoid internal organs. Sherman, an unemployed construction worker and single father, was scheduled to start a new job with a flooring company this Monday, but was able to due to the injury. He has no medical insurance. Sherman moved to Mill City with his daughter Cheyenne just this past May for the affordable rent and to be nearer his family who lives in Gates. “It’s a nice community, I like it here. This has me pretty shook up though. This sort of thing happens all the time in the larger cities, but you don’t hear about it because it’s more common place, I just want to keep my daughter safe,” he said. On July 14 at 11:26 a.m. Linn County deputies located and arrested Matthew Sears in Mill City. He is currently lodged in the Linn County Jail. On July 16, an arraignment was held and Sears was charged with assault in the 2nd degree. Deputies are continuing the investigation. The Linn County Sheriff’s Office was unable to substantiate or discount the story as told by Mr. Matthew Sears. Photo courtesy of OSP. Sherman.

Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller reported in a press release that on July 13, 9:30pm deputies responded to S.W. 1st Avenue in Mill City, for a report of a stabbing. Upon arrival deputies found Jason Sherman, 38, with a knife wound to his left side. Sherman, who lives in Mill City, told deputies he was sitting on the hood of his vehicle in front of his home when a small group of people came walking by. A verbal argument erupted between Sherman and members of the group. One male of the group, identified as Matthew Jeffrey Sears, 29, also of Mill City, threatened to shoot Sherman. At this point Sherman obtained a baseball bat from his vehicle for self-defense. Two females in the group began pushing and hitting Sherman at which time Matthew Sears used a knife with a blade 3 to 4 inches long to stab him in his left side. After the stabbing the people in the group, including Sears, fled the scene on foot. Deputies searched the area for Sears but he was not located at that time. According the victim, that prior to the attack on him, Sherman had witnessed the females from the group engage in an altercation with his neighbors. The fight escalated to a point that Sherman handed the phone to his twelve year old daughter instructing her to call 911. The group then passed by Sherman’s home, where Sears, while reaching into his pants pocket,

Santiam Canyon school district: budget passed, but likely to change, said board chairman

The current status of the Santiam Canyon School District is difficult to track as changes continue week by week. On June 27, in a special board meeting the 2012--13 budget was passed to meet the state appointed June 30 deadline. This may likely change, however. According to Dan Lemke, the Board Chairman, “a budget document is a best guess, it’s fluid, and subject to change throughout the year.” Issues surrounding fairness in insurance coverage and perks offered to the “confidential” employees was brought up, with promises from the board to investigate further. (the classification “confidential” pertains to employees who are privy to confidential information, but are not part of, nor receive the protection of the union bargaining unit.) Since that meeting the board (cont’d on page 2)

Budget director Steve Nielsen accepts position at Corvallis school district FFA teacher also resigns from Santiam High; district seeks volunteers for continuing move from three schools to two

(cont’d from page 1) has been busy accepting resignations from staff members and searching for an interim superintendent. Steve Nielsen, the district budget director announced he will be leaving his position, and accepting the role of business director at the Corvallis School District. Nielsen has worked with the district for 11 years, and has seen many changes. “I’m excited for the opportunity, but also sad to leave here. It’s bittersweet,” said Nielsen. Nielsen’s move came to many as a surprise, as his leadership and dedication was well respected during the recent budget crisis. The board also accepted the resignation of Nichole Scholz, the Agricultural Instructor and advisor of the successful and popular Future Farmers of America club at Santiam High. Scholz, who was unable to be reached for comment, accepted a position at Madras High School. The hiring committee has been dedicating countless hours to pouring over the twenty applications of candidates for the interim superintendent position. The board will be meeting with the candidates next week for interviews in an executive session with the goal of having the new superintendent begin employment August 6. “We have a lot of good candidates here to choose from, I was surprised at the number and quality to choose from. I’m confident we’ll find the perfect match,” said board member Arnie White. “It will be nice to have someone from the outside come in with a fresh set of eyes- new thoughts

and new ideas- but more importantly help be visionary for our future,” said Steve Nielsen. When asked if they were working overtime in the search, the volunteers chuckled. “Fishing is good from what I hear,” said Dan Lemke. Lots of moving still has to happen before September 4, the first day of the new school year. The library has been moved and consolidated to the Mill City campus, and now is in full function, opened on Tuesdays and Thursdays to the public. This Saturday, July 21, there is another moving party. The classrooms at Gates are packed and ready to go. There are about 10 classrooms all boxed up, plus their furniture, to be loaded up and moved to the new Santiam Elementary in Mill City. The plan is to meet at Gates Elementary Saturday at 9 am with pick up trucks, trailers, hand trucks, screw drivers and strong arms. Call Roseanna at 503-897-2368 ext 25 if you have any questions. The plans for moving the playground equipment from Gates Elementary to Mill City is in the making also. Please call board member Arnie White to help. 503-897-3338.

Recipe: how to get rid of pesky sugar ants

This is a recipe for getting rid of those pesky ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, put the solution on and they will be gone. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons boric acid (available at Mill City Pharmacy), and 3 cups warm water. Directions: 1. Mix the sugar and boric acid well. 2. Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won’t be too lumpy. 3. Store in a jar until ready to use. 4. When ready to use, put cotton into the

top of a jar lid to fill it and then saturate the cotton to the top. 5. Place it in the location where needed. 6. Note: This solution will keep for a long while. A good technique is to drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so the ants will find the solution sooner. It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will. When they do, do not disturb them as they drink. They will hang over the edge of the lid and drink for a while and then take it back to the nest killing the colony. Almost overnight they will be gone.

Bill Sanderson’s River Report July 18, 2012 503-897-3301 An unusual sighting last week was a five inch turtle sunning itself in DeWitt Canyon. It was on a branch just above water level, and had all four legs and neck with head sticking out gathering rays from the sun. Usually, all the turtles live in sidewaters, where the temperature is warmer. This may have been a wild native turtle, or it may have been an escaped pet. Because it hid after seeing us, perhaps it was wild. In the same area, we have recently seen eagles and osprey. There are certainly lots of steelhead in a few locations. A few salmon are also hanging around many of the deep holes

Obituaries Bruce Ray Sloan

February 19, 1962 - July 6, 2012

Bruce Ray Sloan was born February 19, 1962 in Kalamath Falls,OR to Edna and Newton Sloan. He spent his childhood in Stayton,OR with his mother and father and five siblings. Bruce later married his wife Minta, of 24 years in Dallas,OR. They raised their family, two boys and two girls in Mill City,OR. Bruce and his family spent their time hunting, fishing, and camping throughout Oregon. One of

our favorite memories is waking up on Saturday morning to a big ol’ breakfast, he always made sure to make enough for all the neighborhood kids too! And on Sunday you could always count on Bruce to have a special pot of beans ready on the stove. Bruce worked at Phillip Industries for 17 years. He then later felt fortunate to have worked along the side of his two sons for River City Excavation driving truck, where they shared lots of good memories in the hot sun. This last year he spent driving truck for A&B Septic in Albany,OR. There was nothing Bruce loved more than hanging out with his fishing buddy Brayden. (oldest grandson- the fish slayer) He showed him all his favorite fishing holes and how to reel the big ones in. Bruce always talked about the days he could teach all
