Cashmere trounces Connell Photo submitted by Geralynne Padilla
Cashmere Convalescent Center Activity Director Geralynne Padilla snapped this photo of some of the dedicated beauty shop volunteers several years ago, many of them volunteering for more than 25 years. Pictured left to right are Joan Braun, Mary Newberry, Eloise Day, Mindy Peterson and Sharon Graaf. Not pictured, Patty Lindaberry and Dorothy Schmitten. Recent health issues have made getting a photo of the crew in action difficult. The Wednesday morning sessions have been cancelled for the past three weeks.

Bear attacks man at Lake Wenatchee By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer The wife of a man attacked by a bear Friday night at Lake Wenatchee is being credited by state Fish and Wildlife officers with saving his life. “She heard a ruckus and ran outside to see him lying on the ground,” said Deputy Chief Mike Cenci of the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. “She kept the bear at bay, yelling and screaming at the bear while trying to attend to her husband.” John Chelminiak and his wife, Lynn Semler, were at a Lake Wenatchee vacation cabin when he went out Friday evening to

Cenci said Semler heard her husband yell and went to see what was wrong. “Frankly, her actions made all the difference in the world,” Cenci said. Three state Fish and Wildlife enforcement officers, along with a biologist and a Karelian bear dog named Cash responded to the call between 8 and 9 p.m. By the time the wildlife officers arrived, the victim had been transported to the hospital and eventually was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

New garbage rates face first official challenge By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer “Impractical” and “more expensive” are two different things. That was the ruling by the Cashmere City Council Sept. 13 in one of the first tests of the city’s new garbage rate structure that went into effect Sept. 1. Tom Dew, owner of Country Boy’s Barbecue at 400 Aplets Way in Cashmere, submitted a letter to the council in August asking to be waived from city garbage collection in favor of using Waste Management, which would save him around $300 a month and contain his trash in one large 8-yard container rather than three smaller ones picked up twice a week. “We create a lot of trash on Friday and Saturday, so I needed a larger dumpster. This is something we’ve been struggling with for a lot of years. We had a 4-yard dumpster, but even that wasn’t enough. We’d been needing to go to an 8-yard dumpster for quite a while.” And that is what Dew proposed, but about that same time, the city’s new “automated” garbage system, which started Sept. 1, did not allow for either a 4-yard container or an 8-yard container. Instead, Country Boy’s was switched to three 1.5-yard dumpsters to be picked up twice a week
at a cost of about $600 a month, a $100 per month increase over the old 4-yard dumpster system. Dew said the three containers take up more space in the parking lot and are less efficient than one 8-yard container would be. “You’re not going to fit as much in three small containers as you would in one big box,” he said. Dew said he spoke with Waste Management and was told that company could supply an 8-yard dumpster, which would be dumped once a week at a cost of $315 a month. But he needed a waiver from the city to get it. The city maintains the franchise for garbage collection, which means Waste Management can contract for collection only with express permission of the city. Cashmere Director of Operations Bob Schmidt denied Dew’s request for the waiver. “My determination is that it is not impractical for the city to serve your garbage disposal needs,” he wrote in a letter dated Sept. 9. The city’s new ordinance states waiver requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. “The city may waive the requirement ... when the type or volume of solid waste makes it impractical for the city to deliver service,” the ordinances states. That includes hazardous materials and solid waste with excessive weight or volume.

Cashmere sanitation worker Clay Johnson loads garbage at Riverside Park using the city’s old garbage truck. A new truck, with a mechanical arm that picks up cans, was put into service on Sept. 1, but isn’t yet used in park or downtown because the containers to go with it have not yet arrived. Along with the new system, the city has implemented new rates, which are taking some getting used to for commercial and residential customers. Cost is not part of the equation. Dew appealed Schmidt’s decision to the council on Sept. 13. Schmidt said Dew’s request had been delayed by a paperwork error and should have been addressed before the new rate structure was implemented, but his recommendation is the same as it would have been earlier. “I am asking the council not to give in to the request on the
basis of financial concerns,” Schmidt said. “He has room for the containers. Our customer base includes up to 20 yards a week for customers. It’s not considered impractical unless we’re past that range.” Councilwoman Debbie Knutsen said at some point cost is a factor, the difference between a tax and a fee. “This sounds like we See GARBAGE on Page 4
Wenatchee River clean up effort considered a success By Ian Dunn Editor
The second annual Wenatchee River Clean Up effort pulled 3,420 pounds of metal and junk out of the river. By any reckoning, that is a lot of junk. But sadly, it is but a portion of crud still in the waterway. This fact is why the Chelan County Natural Resources Department, which sponsors the clean up, plans to continue the See BEAR on Page 4 program year after year. Key

Mary Newberry was visiting her mother-in-law in the Cashmere Convalescent Center 28 years ago when a friend asked her if she was interested in “helping us do hair.” A small group of volunteers had set up a makeshift beauty shop and showed up each week to set, curl and comb the hair of the center’s residents.
Newberry said she knew little about fixing hair, but she knew the boost in spirits that comes with looking good. She signed up to help, showing up nearly every Wednesday morning for 28 years. “It gives them all a little lift,” Newberry said. “Some of them don’t give a hoot what you do with it as long as it’s set. Sometimes you have to cajole them into doing

to that is getting enough volunteers to show up. Promises of free food and music enticed some 60 volunteers to help out this year.

Cashmere Record’s online site converting to paid service My kids are always quick to tell me that the Internet is free. That’s largely true but it is also true much of the content found on the Net isn’t worth the time viewers invest. The Net will provide you with a bottomless well of information on any and every
subject – much of it wrong. It is also true that most newspapers today are suffering from declining circulation much of that attributed to the availability of free news on the Internet. Like most things in life, generalities about these issues do not always provide the real truth of the matter. Circulation in metropolitan and regional newspapers is declining. That has been true for decades. The Internet is just one more nail in the coffin of a business model that has been losing favor with readers. Community newspapers on the other hand have experienced renewed life as technology has reduced their costs of production and enhanced the quality of their products. For these newspapers the Internet offers an opportunity to further improve the timeli-
ness and quality of their service to their local communities. For the last year we have offered the Record online for free. That free service will end on Oct. 1. Some will see this as just another example of a greedy capitalist trying to line his pockets with money from content that should be free and cancel their subscription. That is regrettable. Truth is the subscription price will not make us rich but will help us to continue to make improvements to the Web service. Building and maintaining these sites takes time and money. Oddly enough, our staff need to make a living as well and expect to be paid for the time they work to develop the content. Our competitor down the road wants to develop a local
Web service with free labor. We wish them luck in maintaining the quality and consistency of content that we endeavor to provide. There will still be some free content available on the siteclassified advertising is just one example. And we will be adding more free content as we upgrade the site. Content that is available nearly everywhere for free will continue to be freely available on our site. But local news content that is developed by our staff such as city council reports, school district news and local sports will only be fully available to paid subscribers. Paid subscribers to the Cashmere Valley Record will continue to have full access to the site as part of their newspaper subscription. Online only sub-
scriptions will be available to out of state subscribers who currently get their print edition up to a week late. The truth is that advertisers, who now pay for most of the cost of providing a local newspaper, still expect their advertising rates to be based on the print edition’s circulation. As we approach our 10th anniversary of publishing the Cashmere Valley Record we hope that you will join us in our continuing efforts to improve the quality of the products we bring to the community. My wife and I may live in Leavenworth, but we have actively supported Cashmere through community organizations ever since we took over in September of 2000.

Political lies will empty your wallet Adele
Ferguson Syndicated Columnist I see the Seattle Times decided to rattle Bill Gates Srs’ cage in its editorial column instead of sticking The Truth Needle into him. The Truth Needle is what The Times calls its investigations into claims made by political candidates and campaigns. They’ve zeroed in on U.S. Sen. Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi so far. You know, Patty takes credit for stopping the feds from awarding a $35 billion aircraft tanker contract to a foreign company
thus giving Boeing another shot at a bid. The Times responds that she was “mostly right” although she goes a bit far in giving the impression she was a Lone Ranger and did it all by herself. Rossi got the needle for claiming she voted for every spending bill in Congress since 2004 and The Times tells us she voted against four consecutive budgets starting in fiscal 2004 when Republicans controlled the House, the Senate and the White House. Actually, I don’t know why it matters since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that candidates were not required to tell the truth about their opponents but The Times has taken it upon itself to help us voters distinguish between fact and fiction. But back to Bill Gates Sr., who appears in a television ad that
touts Initiative 1098, proposing a state income tax of 5 percent on annual income above $200,000 for individuals and $400,000 for couples, the supposed sweetener being a cut in the state property tax by 20 percent and an increase in the Business and Occupation tax credit for small businesses to $4,800. He never utters the dreaded words state income tax. “I love Washington,” he says. OK, can’t argue with that. He certainly has every reason to. “That’s why I helped write Initiative 1098.” Middle class families have been struggling, he says, so 1-1098 will tax higher earning folks plus giving tax breaks to property owners and small businesses. The proceeds will be over $2 billion a year to improve education and health care. “Only 1.2 percent of the wealthiest will pay more. Sup-
port 1-1098. It’s good for Washington.” 1-1098 is good for Washington like earthquakes and forest fires are good for Washington. In an article in The Times by a couple of King County business organization execs, Mike Sotelo and Craig Dawson, we learn that the very business owners Gates claims to want to help, are hit the hardest. Almost 70 percent of those earning $200,000 are small business owners, they say. Also, we lost 130,000 jobs here last year, but mostly in the private sector. The state lost 3,100, local governments 1,900 and the feds added 1,900. The Times zaps Bill Jr.s’ pop for not calling it a tax increase and not explaining that the property and B and 0 tax cuts are chickenfeed. It’s something else that Gates Sr. doesn’t say, however, that needs to be repeated over
and over between now and Nov. 2. He knows but the average voter forgets that while the Legislature can’t monkey with an initiative for two years after passage, from then on it’s open sesame. I’ve seen a few letters to the editor praising 1-1098 because the big earners will pay it. Boy, are these people in for a surprise if, God forbid, it passes. Our lawmakers would adjust the rate down into the middle class as soon as it’s possible to ensure a more stable return. We would all be paying it. The property tax cut and B and 0 tax increase would be rewritten to restore the bucks there too. I don’t think it will pass. We’ve said no four times before. We’re not stupid. Adele Ferguson can be reached at P.O. Box 69, Hansville, Wa.,. 98340.
Article VI, para 3: “ no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” Later, but added quickly after the Constitution was ratified, this further, clearer statement: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ” which was later extended to apply also to the states). In different times and places, religions have been and can be foundations of governments. This applies to Christianity and it applies to Islam, as to others. I can certainly agree with Ms. Vinje that people should not be killed for their religion, and should be able to practice their religions freely. I hope Ms. Vinje agrees with me that the things that distinguish our country from others are the values expressed in the U.S. Constitution, including freedom of religion and separation of church and state. That freedom and that separation apply to all.
Failing to follow it is to fail our country. While Americans are of different colors, ethnicities, religions and dates of immigration, I believe this says it best: “We may have come on different ships, but we are all on the same ship now.” Let us treat one another with respect and kindness. Peace be unto us all. Nancy M. Miller Leavenworth
NFIB Poll shows big support for busting state liquor monopoly Submitted by Tony Malandra A little less state influence over martinis, Mars bars, and Mountain Dews would be a healthy change of everyone’s budgetary diet, according to some final poll results on November ballot initiatives taken by NFIB of its membership. NFIB is the representative group for the state’s small business owners who employ more working Washingtonians and generate more jobs than big businesses ever have or ever will. By a margin of 79 percent to 16 percent, with 5 percent undecided, NFIB-member small business owners support passage of Initiative 1100, which would end the state’s monopoly on hard-liquor sales and open up retailing opportunities to a greater pool of licensed providers. Ending one monopoly, however, does not mean handing it over to another, which is why 54 percent of small business owners oppose Initiative 1105, which would run all hardliquor sales through licensed distributors only.
“Our members believe consumers should be able to directly purchase hard alcohol through a variety of private sector providers, such as manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, clubs, as well as distributors,” said Patrick Connor, Washington state director for NFIB. Last month’s fax and e-mail poll of 8,000 NFIB members in the state also found big support for Initiative 1107 (79 percent Yes, 17 percent No, 4 percent undecided), which would repeal new taxes recently imposed on bottled water, candy, and gum and reverse tax increases on soda pop. In the final question of the poll, 81 percent of NFIB-member small businesses intend to vote No on Referendum 52, which would put a stop to the Legislature’s plan to spend $500 million for weatherization and other energy efficiency projects on public buildings at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $1 billion over 30 years. Fourteen percent will vote to uphold the bond measure, 5 percent were undecided. “Small business believes that these so-called ‘green’ jobs
lawmakers pay slavish devotion to in their incessant and meaningless rhetoric should be self-starting, self-funding, and self-sustaining like every other enterprise, not subsidized by a generation of taxpayerfinanced debt,” said Connor. On two previous NFIB-member ballots, small business owners have come out in large support for Initiative 1053 requiring a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to increase taxes and for Initiative 1082 breaking the state’s monopoly on the sale of workers’ compensation insurance. Initiative 1098, essentially asking small business owners if they’d like to pay a new state income tax on top of everything else, was not balloted because of its obvious response, according to Connor. NFIB is the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses. More information is available online at www.NFIB.com/newsroom.
Letters to the editor Peace and freedom In her letter Sept. 15, Ms. Vinje mistakes my criticism. While I agree that she should have fully quoted her sources, my comments point out that the sources cited within the source she used (and failed to cite) do not say what they are there presented as saying. My earlier letter commented on the first set of statistics, so let me use the second set as a further example and another kind of error. These statistics refer to Christian deaths. Her sources are Barrett & Johnson, World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200 (note that this work’s field of coverage extends to AD2200, a date almost 200 years in the future – perhaps expressive of its intentions rather than its substance?) and Moore’s History of Asia Minor. For purposes of discussion, accepting Barrett & Johnson’s figure of 9,121,000 Christian martyrs killed by Muslims from 33-2000AD as accurate, the site quoted by Ms. Vinje then adds Moore’s estimate
of 50,000,000 (did somehow that 50,000,000 occur outside the time span of 33-2000AD of her first source?). Then, African Christian martyrs are thrown into the mix. Ms. Vinje’s source takes all these numbers (which are grim enough) and adds them together to create an even more immense number. While I would have to look extensively into methodology and original sources to establish the validity of the numbers, I am clear that adding a presumably valid count to another presumably valid count of the same does not create a doubly valid count: it creates a misrepresentation. When a source is so easily taken to task, its reliability is clouded and everything it presents becomes suspect. The motivation of those who put together such statements must be questioned. In the early days of America, often Christianity was not only a religion but a government. Only professing members of the
church were enfranchised (the governance of the Massachusetts colonies are examples of this), and members of some religions were excluded from the communities altogether. For many years, many colonies/states had state churches, to which all residents paid taxes no matter what their personal beliefs. Where did this lead? To events like the Salem witch trials, which all agree now were a phenomenon of mass hysteria from some buried-inhistory-or-psychology cause. Not to mention the moral violation practiced on one’s fellow citizens by forcing contribution to a religion which they did not support. Such are the sources of violence. Recognizing that religion was one absolute over which people would fight and fracture a community, one of the wisdoms of our Founders was to separate church from state, and to guarantee all religions freedom to practice, and to remove religious tests from political practices (Constitution,

They did raise them under the banner of drastic increases in value before the bubble broke.

Expiring Bush tax cuts will hit Washingtonians hard By Paul Guppy Vice President for Research How would you like to do nothing and receive $2.8 trillion? That is what Congress is on course to do on Dec. 31. On that date the tax cuts enacted under President Bush expire, and federal tax rates will immediately revert to the level they were at ten years ago, taking us back to an era of higher taxes and lower take-home pay. Washingtonians will be hit hard. According to the Tax Foundation, the average middle income-family will see its take-home income fall by $1,574 next year alone. People have conflicting opinions about President Bush and his eight-year presidency, but one thing is certain, he was serious about reducing the financial burden the federal government places on its citizens. The landmark tax
relief bills he signed in 2001 and 2003 are among the largest tax cuts in U.S. history. These bills formed the centerpiece of Bush’s domestic policy, and together they freed more than a trillion dollars for private-sector business growth and job creation. The tax cuts were also good social policy. They encouraged entrepreneurship and financial independence by rewarding work, savings and investment. They promoted social justice and fairness. Letting people keep more of what they earn reduces the reach of government power, and allows citizens to care for their families, give to charity, volunteer more and otherwise contribute to our nation’s civic life. Those wide-ranging social and economic benefits are now at risk. The expiration of the Bush tax cuts would increase federal
taxes across the board, with tax rates for low-income families rising the most. While the top rate would increase by 13 percent, from 35 percent to 39.6 percent, lowincome earners would see a rate hike of 50 percent, as the lowest rate increases from 10 percent to 15 percent. Families with children would see the child tax credit cut in half, from $1,000 down to $500 a year. This policy change would function as a tax on kids, with larger families being hit hardest. The household budget of a couple with four children would be cut by $2,000 in 2011. Higher taxes on children would discourage adoption, meaning fewer waiting children would be placed with a forever family. At a time when people are trying to reduce personal debt, federal taxes on saving and invest-
ment would soar. The tax rate on capital gains would increase by 33 percent, rising from a 15 percent tax rate to 20 percent. The rate on qualified dividends would rise even more, jumping from 15 percent to as high as 39.6 percent. The marriage penalty would return, so married income earners would again pay more than if they filed as singles. Washington state’s economy, with its reliance on world trade, aerospace, high-tech software and cutting edge medical research, depends heavily on access to a steady supply of venture capital. Every additional dollar sent to the federal treasury means one less dollar available in our state to expand a business or create a job. Higher taxes on investment would particularly hit the elderly living on fixed incomes. Not only would the government take more
of the dividend payments seniors receive, there would be fewer dividends paid out overall. A study by the independent CATO Institute found that as taxes on dividends rise, companies are less likely to pay dividends in the first place. This is harsh news for seniors relying on a lifetime of careful investing to make them secure in their old age. Investment earnings are no longer limited to the retired and the wealthy. Today millions of working Americans participate in the stock market through 401ks, IRAs and employer pension plans. If the federal levy on investments returns to pre-Bush levels, Barclay’s Capital predicts stock prices would drop 8 percent, meaning thousands of dollars in lost value for households in Washington and across the country. For Members of Congress
campaigning in a tough election year, letting the Bush tax cuts expire seems like the ideal political strategy. With no roll call vote, no floor debate, and no annoying inquiries from local reporters, they need only sit back and wait for the money to roll in. When the higher taxes hit in January, however, their constituents may feel differently. Letting the Bush cuts expire would turn back the clock, imposing one of the largest tax increases ever, just as Washingtonians and all Americans are struggling to recover from the worst economy in decades. Paul Guppy is Vice President for Research at Washington Policy Center, a non-partisan independent policy research organization in Washington state. For more information visit washingtonpolicy.org.

That new business activ-
ity is expected to generate at least $20 million in annual tax revenue to support the state’s general fund budget. The report also severely undermines opponents’ false claims by demonstrating the wide range of consumer protections available in the initiative. OFM confirms that under Initiative 1082: Existing benefits levels to injured workers are maintained; Private insurers will be subject to the regulatory requirements of the state’s insurance code involving admission to the market, financial, solvency and market analysis oversight; Private insurers will be subject to the unfair claims practices rules and
statutes; Consumers who disagree with claims decisions made by private insurers will be able to file complaints with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC). The OIC will regulate private insurers who offer industrial insurance, including licensing, financial examinations and oversight, rate filing analysis, responding to consumer complaints, rule making, etc. The OIC will select a licensed rating organization that will submit rate-making documents; those rates and any variations from the proposed rate will require OIC approval. Private insurers will pay all
costs and fees associated with the OIC’s administration and oversight of the private market. OFM also predicted that just 6.2 percent of employers would be referred to the assigned risk plan, a pool made up of businesses with the worst safety records and highest likelihood of costly claims. With the assigned risk plan spread across private insurers under Initiative 1082, insurers would not be able to pick and choose only the least expensive businesses to insure, as critics have falsely alleged. The Fiscal Impact Statement was released the day after West Virginia’s Insurance Commis-
sioner announced workers’ compensation insurance costs in that state would decrease nearly three percent this year. West Virginia privatized its workers’ compensation market in 2006, similar to what is proposed in Initiative 1082. Since then, workers’ compensation costs have decreased by 44 percent, saving West Virginia employers more than $150 million dollars.

Take a good look at the Public Employee Union scam By Jarrett Skorup Under the National Labor Relations Act, private-sector unions are allowed to extract dues and fees from workers if the employer agrees. The NLRA, passed in 1935 during Franklin Roosevelt’s first term, does not, however, apply to public-sector employees—including state and federal workers— because the thinking was that this would over-politicize government and cause a conflict of interest between unions and politicians. In a Weekly Standard piece by professors Fred Siegel and Dan DiSalvo titled, “The New Tammany Hall,” this problem is described: Unlike private sector unions, the sheer number of workers represented is not the linchpin of [the public sector unions] influence. Private sector unions have a natural adversary in the owners of the companies with whom they negotiate. But public sector unions have no such natural counter-
weight. They are a classic case of “client politics,” where an interest group’s concentrated efforts to secure rewards impose diffused costs on the mass of unorganized taxpayers. In the 1960s, many states began chipping away at the wall of separation between unions and public workers. In 1965, the Michigan Legislature revised the Public Employment Relations Act (PERA) to establish mandatory collective bargaining and exclusive representation for state and municipal government workers. This has caused the number of public-sector union employees to skyrocket. A conflict of interest would be as follows: First, a government union elects politicians by funding their campaigns and organizing a massive get-out-the-vote drive; second, the politicians support employee pay increases, generous pensions, and condition of employment; third, the union takes dues (read: taxpayer money) and starts the
cycle all over again for selected politicians. At both the state and national level, public-sector union support for many Democrats has been well documented. One of the largest public-sector unions in the country, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) has given over $40 million to politicians since 1990, with more than 98 percent of that going to Democrats. The SEIU, AFL-CIO, and United Steel Workers have all promised big help in the coming election. In return, the Democratic Party has voted nearly lockstep with these unions’ demands. But political cronyism knows no party lines, and many Republicans likewise have been guilty here in Michigan. In just the past year, the state has had several such instances. Last fall, nine Michigan Education Association-supported House Republicans nixed a 3 percent cost-saving plan for the school aid
budget. In April, MEA-supported Senate Republicans watered down a modest bill that would “increase state and school employee payroll contributions to their pension system by 3 percent, cap pension ‘service credits’ at 30 years, and create a somewhat less generous defined benefit system for new school employees.” At the same time, a union subsidiary of the SEIU pushed GOP Senators into coming up short on a vote that would have opened a prison to competitive bidding and privatized it, if privatization promised to save money. Last August, one Republican state senator came under fire for introducing a bill that would have forced some 42,000 in-home health care workers into a union, sending approximately $6.6 million in taxpayers’ money to the SEIU in the form of “dues.” Unfortunately, what has happened in Michigan has taken place
elsewhere in America. The end game for these types of relationships is already happening in our country’s most public union-friendly states: in California, where budget gridlock has forced the government to issue IOUs and minimum-wage salaries to public officials, and in Illinois, where the governor has promised massive tax hikes combined with severe cuts to education. Both states have some of the highest tax rates in the county, and yet both face pension obligations that they cannot ever hope to pay. These types of political dealings and financing may not be illegal, but they’re still an offense to the political process. Politicians can take money from governmentemployee unions and then vote on legislation that directly improves the financial well-being of these entities. A possible quid pro quo exists that would not if public-sector
unions were restricted from giving money to politicians. Politicians granting unsustainable government-employee salaries, benefits, and pensions is a problem everywhere, but the states with the strongest publicsector unions will have the hardest time correcting the problem. More broadly, as long as these incestuous relationships between government unions and the political class remain in place and unchallenged, the size and scope of government will continue to grow.

Community Bear cub orphans find shelter By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer The two orphaned bear cubs whose mother was shot Sept. 9 on Icicle Road have found a new temporary home. State Fish and Wildlife agents said last week the cubs would have to be euthanized if a shelter to take the cubs could not be found. At that time, the agency had been working with two shelters, one in Western Washington and one in Boise, Idaho, and both were full. Rich Beausoleil, the cougar and bear specialist for state Fish and Wildlife, said they expanded their search and found a third shelter, in McCall, Idaho, that had just one bear cub inhouse and room for the two orphans. The cubs were given a clean bill
of health by a veterinarian in East Wenatchee, who did a full work up on the animals. “They were pretty healthy. He did give them some penicillin shots as a precaution,” Beausoleil said. They got their ear tags and were set to be shipped to the shelter last Wednesday. The cubs will winter there and be released back into the wild next year. In the meantime, the investigation of the shooting incident continues. The mother bear was shot by a homeowner, who was concerned about his dog. At the time, he didn’t realize it was a mother bear with cubs. And bears are continuing their quest for food before winter sets
in. Several others have been sighted. Beausoleil said he set a trap for a rusty-colored bear that was attracted by the barbecue grills at the Leavenworth condos. The traps are set for bears who tend to stick around rather than take what they can and move along. “This one was a candidate for relocation,” he said. But the best way to keep them from sticking around is to put away the big three, he said. “Garbage, birdseed and petfood,” he said. And maybe barbecues, too. “There’s certainly not much reward there, but they do smell good,” he said. Nevonne McDaniels can be reached at 548-5286 or reporter@ cashmerevalleyrecord.com.

Community CURLERS: “I knew the lift it gave them to have their hair done” Continued from Page 1
it. We have a good time. It’s been a lot of fun over the years.” The staff has worked it so a good share of the ladies have their showers on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings. “So when we go on Wednesday, we don’t have to shampoo a lot. That makes it handy,” Newberry said. The volunteers also offer their services for Easter, Mother’s Day and Christmas. In the beginning, they had to find dryers and other equipment, Newberry said. “We scrounged yard sales for curlers, brushes and combs. We even found a dryer at one yard sale – and a coat rack,” she said. Community groups also have made donations over the years. “There were three volunteers
when I started,” Newberry said. “Then gradually we added some, including two who have been here more than 20 years.” Dorothy Schmitten, who has been involved in the beauty shop for more than 30 years, said she is one of the volunteers who does have a background in the beauty business. While the others can set and curl hair, she can actually cut it. “It’s all free. We don’t charge a thing,” she said. “It’s hard for some of them to understand. They try to find money in their pockets. Some there know what’s going on and they really appreciate it.” Eloise Day started volunteering about 18 years ago. A neighbor, who played the organ once a week at the center, told her the beauty shop was looking for help. “I figured if she can go once a week, I can go once a week,” she said. “It’s been very satisfying
seeing the ladies looking very nice.” Joan Braun got involved when her mother and her aunt were patients at the Convalescent Center. “I knew what a lift it gave them to have their hair done,” she said. “After they passed away, I continued to help out. It’s a wonderful service to the ladies who live there. And we are desperately in need of more help.” The immediate challenge is that three of the core five or six beauty shop volunteers are now over age 80 and some of the volunteers have been temporarily sidelined because of health problems. For the past three weeks, the beauty shop didn’t open. “You have to have a certain number of people to open it up,” Braun said. “You can’t do it with two.”
Geralynne Padilla, who has been the activity director at the Cashmere Convalescent Center for eight years, said the beauty shop is a highlight for the women residents. Each Wednesday, from 7 to 11:30 a.m., between 30 and 40 women get their hair done thanks to the volunteers. “They start lining up before it opens. It’s a quality of life issue. As women, we know what it means to have your hair done,” Padilla said. She can tell the difference on weeks when the beauty shop doesn’t open, she said. And it is a concern to the volunteers as well. “The three of us won’t be available much longer,” Newberry said of the volunteers who are in their 80s. Newberry herself has been unable to volunteer since February because of back problems.
She misses it. She recently had surgery and will be out at least another month, she said. But she hopes other volunteers will step forward. Newberry’s daughters, Mindy Peterson and Gayle Pendergrass, have been regular volunteers, but more are needed. You don’t need experience, but it does take the right personality, Newberry said. “You have to kind of like it,” she said. “It has been fulfilling. Even when they don’t want to get their hair done, it will boost them a little bit. They’re down and don’t want to do anything. They will listen to us chatter back and forth and talk to them. It’s amazing. You get to know them.” Day said she isn’t sure why more people don’t volunteer. “A lot of people don’t want to go where old people are. I’m one
of those old people, so it doesn’t bother me. It’s truly very satisfying,” she said. Braun said volunteers are welcome. “Experience isn’t necessary. You spend time with the ladies. They are wonderful people. Most of them truly do appreciate what you’re doing and that’s very gratifying. Sometimes it’s just a matter of listening to them, talking to them, reminiscing with them. You don’t have to have skills. If you absolutely don’t want to roll ladies hair, you can go and get them from their rooms,” Braun said. For information on volunteering for the beauty shop or any other area at the Cashmere Convalescent Center, call Geralynne Padilla at 782-1251.

are asking him to pay a $300 tax,” because he could get the service elsewhere for less. But Schmidt said because the council opted to continue to operate its own garbage system, the rates are part of the package. Waste Management is less expensive because its customer base is larger and the costs are spread out. “We just don’t have that customer base,” he said. Schmidt suggested the rate structure might need some tweaking, particularly for large commercial users, which is something that had been discussed when the rates were approved. City attorney Terry McCauley cautioned the council in setting a precedent by allowing a waiver
less money by going with Waste Management.” The council voted unanimously to uphold the staff’s denial of Dew’s request, but said they will take another look at the city’s month-old rate structure and look at whether setting up an appeal process to the hearing examiner is warranted. Dew said he is taking the decision in stride, but questions the rates. “It’s frustrating when it could be done for so much less through Waste Management,” he said. He also is working with the city on finding a way to lock the dumpsters. He said he has since found one of the dumpsters full of sofa cushions. “I’m pretty sure that wasn’t from my restaurant,” he said. “If I’m paying that much, I don’t want
to be paying for other people’s trash.” The switch to the new automated garbage system is a work in progress. The learning curve by both the driver and customers has been high. A newsletter was sent to the city’s 1,400 customers in August notifying them of the changes, but not everyone has complied. Knutsen said she has received several calls from customers upset because they had to change where they leave their garbage cans. One of the challenges, Schmidt said, is garbage cans need to be placed facing the street and the lids must be closed completely. And the receptacles must be in an area where the truck can get to them. In some cases, customers have

“It’s my understanding that he has severe injuries, but is in stable condition,” Cenci said Monday morning. The officers and Cash found the bear within 100 yards of the vacation home where the attack occurred. “The dog pursued the bear across Highway 207 and kept the bear distracted while Officer Snyder was able to get close enough to put it down. They made every effort to preserve the forensics and DNA evidence, but we are certain this is the offending bear.” The female bear was 8 or 9 years old and weighed 148 pounds and had worn teeth, missing a canine tooth. “She had some fat reserves, but not the amount you would anticipate at this time of year,” he said. Bears store fat in their rumps, he said. “She didn’t have the junk in her trunk where she should,” he said. “You could feel her hip bones.” Cenci said there is no indication that the victims’ dogs or the victims “did anything to bring this on. We can make an educated guess, but only the bear really knows that.” This particular bear had not been causing problems elsewhere, as far as anyone had reported. Cenci said the bear had no tags. “There is no evidence that we had ever handled this particular bear,” he said. A necropsy will be performed to look for any indication that would explain the bear’s behavior, he said. “It was not a well-fed bear. Whether something in the lab tests will tell us anything further remains to be seen. Given its condition, it was not at the top of its game.” Cenci said the bear behaved strangely when fish and wildlife officers were tracking it. “They found it 100 yards from the incident and the dog was unable to tree the bear. Often they

What to do in a bear attack Deputy Chief Mike Cenci of the
Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife said bear attacks are rare, but should it happen, lists some key things to remember: • Don’t run and turn yourself into prey. Pick up small children. • Wave your hands and make yourself as big as you can. “That what the victim’s wife did. Raise all kinds of hell,” Cenci said. • Don’t approach the animal. Leave it an escape route. • Try to get upwind, so it can identify you as a human.

RIVER: Big party held to thank volunteers Continued from Page 1
cess areas, mainly because it’s a good place to get in the river,” Shales said. “There is metal up and down the river.” The group focused on access points in Cashmere, Dryden and Monitor. There were also some boats that floated the river to remove garbage from the shoreline between Leavenworth and Monitor. In Cashmere, the volunteers pulled a car frame out of the river near Riverside Park. There was also a street sign removed, a crumpled 50-gallon barrel and metal pipes. Shales said, in this second year, he is never too surprised by anything coming out of the river. “There were landfills next to the river way back when,” he said. “The riverbanks are being scoured out and rolling downstream.” There is a 25 foot lampost under the bridge in Cashmere, but the crew could not budge it. Shales said the lampost is too heavy and would require heavy equipment to remove. The Tibits Bridge was removed, Shales said. It was a bridge, located near the Hitching Post in Cashmere, decommissioned in the 1950s. Some was removed last year as well. Another item, Shales said
they have their eyes on is a car body in the lower Wenatchee River, which was washed into the river in the early ‘90s floods. “We have the money and want to take a look at it,” he said. “It just depends on the water level. We are going after that.” This year, Shales said some rafting companies floated down the river to spot debris. Most rafters float in high water, so naturally would not notice some debris in the river. In the low water, the rafters were asked to spot debris in the river. “Trout Unlimited floated from the East Leavenworth Bridge. That is the highest float we have done,” said Shales. “There has been a lot of talk of doing this higher up river, but we haven’t floated it much. We asked the rafting companies where it is needed most. They thought from Peshastin down. But I am sure if you started looking for stuff (up river), you find it.” When the river is low, Shales said you really notice the pieces sticking out of the river, especially if you are looking for it. When the guides get out on the river, one they know very well, at low water levels, they really notice a lot of debris they might not otherwise. Partners in the clean up were Cascadia Conservation District, city of Cashmere, U.S. Bureau
of Reclamation, Chelan County Public Works, and Trout Unlimited. Several local businesses also contributed by sponsoring a celebration to thank the volunteers, including Good Mood Food, Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, Sure to Rise Bakery, Weinstein Beverage, Crunch Pak, Dan’s Food Market, and Food Pavilion. Chelsey Craven provided the music thanks to sound system donated by Avalon Music. “We filled the biggest raft in our fleet with a pick up load of rusty debris. It would have been nice to fill a dozen more,” said James L. Moore, Orion River Rafting, in a press release. Even after a second year of clean up, Shales said no one will say the river is clean. They plan to keep concentrating on the areas full of metal. “We hope to continue as long as the volunteers want to help out. It’s a good deal,” Shales said. “The Wenatchee River is our local gem. People come from all over the state to enjoy it. We need to keep it clean for us and everybody else.” In addition, Shales said, the river also provides habitat for endangered spring chinook, steelhead, bull trout and other species.

Harris got back into Harleys for the past 16 years and he and Norma rode to Sturgis several times and finally sell-

A man of silent strength, he has battled diabetes for over 35 years, six cancers in the last five years and never complained. He was brought back to Leavenworth to be with his brother and wonderful cousins.

Richard S. “Dick” Darlington, 84, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, Sept, 18, 2010 at the Cashmere Convalescent Center. Dick was born in Cashmere on Nov. 23, 1915, to Alfred and Myrtle Sparks Darlington. Dick attended School in Peshastin for 11 years. On April 3, 1937, he married Florence Mounter in Rice, Wash. Dick and Florence made their first home in Peshastin, then in 1941, they moved to Leavenworth until 1969 when they moved to White Pine off of the Stevens Pass Highway. In 1983, they moved back to Cashmere, and in 2003, they again moved to the Stevens Pass area. Dick was raised in the family orchard and also worked on the bridge over the Wenatchee River east of Leavenworth in 1935. In the late 1930s he started working in the woods in road construction for Peshastin Lumber and Box Company and in the 1940s was a mechanic for the company and in the 1950s moved into management for the sawmill, retiring in 1978. After his retirement, Dick maintained and raised 90 fruit trees, hauling the produce to Spokane. His most enjoyable entertainment was riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Dick is survived by his four children, Carla (Hank) Radach, Cary (Carla) Darlington, Mary (Clay) Steele, and Randall (Barb) Darlington, sister; Shirley McArthur; Grandchildren, Tom Radach,

September 22, 2010 • Cashmere Valley Record
Schools & Sports Bulldogs make statement with 26-0 victory
Caleb Barnes for keeping the middle stuffed up and Michael Ruether for effective pressure on the quarterback. He also was pleased with the secondary again for solid pass coverage, Joey Michael, Joe Green, Mitch Darlington, Kevin Kenoyer and Cooper Elliot. So far this has been an effective and tested unit. Cashmere had an outstanding performance from the defensive line containing Hadley and pressuring the quarterback.
By Kyle Green Special to the Record Cashmere may have secured an early grab on the number one ranking in the state with a convincing win over the defending state champions from Connell last Friday night in Cashmere. The last two state champs faced off on Cashmere’s field for an early season showdown. The Cashmere boys asserted themselves with a 26-0 win, racking up points early and playing solid defense the whole game. “It was a great defensive effort, ” said Cashmere Head Coach Phil Zukowski. “Team ball where everyone executed their assignments with no breakdowns. We had great communication on the field and everyone was on the same page.' To put it directly, the Connell Eagles came with what was being held as an unstoppable offense, with returning starter Mat Hadley at running back and a host of other weapons. Hadley was awarded the state 1A most valuable player for 2009. “We had to stop Hadley first, then we worked on their passing game,” said Zukowski. “Hadley is a great running back and he showed he is as good as they say.” The Bulldogs were able to hold Hadley to 93 yards rushing, and three receptions for 0 yards. “Thanks needs to go out to Kenny Johnston who imitated Hadley all week. He has similar speed and he was hammered pretty hard for a few days” he said. Connell’s quarter back Chan-

Bulldog runningback Kevin Kenoyer runs through the nice hole opened by his offensive line in action against Connell last week. Cashmere had their way with the Eagles, winning convincingly 26-0. This week, the Bulldogs host a team from Canada, Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School. dler Salisbury was held to 6-for-18 passing for 50 yards with one interception. “Our secondary confused their quarter back a bit. We played man coverage most of the night, about 85 percent and he couldn’t deal with it like a zone coverage,” Zukowski said. “Their offense is designed to throw against zone defense and we have a great secondary to play man.” Cashmere’s offense executed superbly scoring on the opening drive after getting the kickoff. “We wanted the ball first and felt we could score right off,” he said.
The Bulldogs drove from their own 48 and six plays later Tyler McNair scored a 14 yard run to make it 7-0. “They had eight men on the line the whole night and we still moved the ball,” he said. The defense then went to work forcing the Eagles to punt on their first possession. Cashmere took the ball on the Connell 31 after a great punt return by Casey Ruether. One play was all McNair needed to score, after a two point conversion run by Kevin Kenoyer Cashmere led 14-0. Things continued to go bad for
the Eagles in the first quarter. On the first play of their second possession Hadley fumbled and Cashmere recovered on the Eagle 16 yard line. After three plays McNair scored his third touchdown with a 5-yard run, the PAT failed, but the Bulldogs had a stunning 20-0 lead before the end of the first quarter. McNair ended the evening with 126 yards as the game’s leading rusher. The second and third quarters were scoreless as the Eagles defense made adjustments but none on offense would work for them. Cashmere scored early in the forth on a 21-yard run by Michael
Ruether. Connell punted six times, turned the ball over twice and failed on a forth down attempt one time. The Connell offense threw everything they had at the Bulldog defense and made a strong effort to score and not be shutout as the game ended. “I was very happy with how well Kyle Weiler played,” Zukowski said. “He has improved a great deal.” Weiler said he tries to get better every day. “The team helps me get better. I work on the things coaches tell me to,” Weiler said. Coach also gave recognition to
The game this week will have an international flair as the Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School Panthers from Surry, British Columbia. The Canadian team is traveling Thursday with a practice joining Bulldogs for a team dinner that evening. The Panthers are “billeted” in Cashmere homes for the night for interaction with Americans. “This will be a chance for our boys to learn a little about Canadians” said Coach Zukowski. “They know a lot about us but I think our boys could learn.” The Panthers come from a larger school. It would be considered a 3A high school in the States. They play a versatile style of offense and have some good size on their team. “I told their coach we will have about 1,000 people to play in front of and he told me they would see that many the whole season,” he said. This will be the last non league game before Bulldogs open against Caribou Trail next week.
Cashmere soccer team scores 2-0 win over Okanogan By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer A 2-0 win over Okanogan on Saturday was a nice way for the Cashmere Bulldogs girls soccer team to end the week after a whirlwind of non-league matches that included
a high and a low — with a 14-0 win over Cle Elum Tuesday and a 1-0 loss to Ephrata Thursday. In the match against Cle Elum, Coach Dennis Tronson said the offense woke up. “Not that it hasn’t been awake,” he said.
A week earlier, the team shutout both Omak and Quincy, scoring six goals each game. Against Cle Elum, the score was 7-0 by halftime. In the game, Gaby Gonzalez scored four, Monique Blanchard, Mackenzi Brunner and Tianna Helm each scored three and Lauren Johnson scored one. Dani Morseman had three assists. “Gaby leads us in goal scoring,” Tronson said. And it was Goalie Suzy McCall’s third shutout of the season, though she didn’t have too much to do during the game. Cashmere had 35 shots on goal to Cle Elum’s one. “That says a lot about the defense in front of her,” Tronson said. “They eliminate the opportunity to shoot.
Cle Elum had the ball down there, but couldn’t get in position to shoot the ball.” And that, Tronson said, is one of the things the team has been working on. Senior Kaylee Carson is the center of defense, with three freshmen — Mikayla Sites, Jesica Bauer, Karly Theis — around her. “She organizes the defensive line. So far it works really well. Limiting opportunities is the key. You can’t stop every shot, but limiting their chances makes it harder for them,” he said. “This is just her second game. She scored two in Omak, as well.” Tronson said in addition to limiting shots on goal, the defense and midfield is also working on holding onto the ball longer in the midfield to give the fowards a chance to find space. He said the outcome against Cle Elum might be different in a couple weeks. “They had a really young team, with five freshman starting. It might take them a couple games to get organized. The score could be entirely different in a couple weeks,” he said. The Bulldogs faced the Ephrata Tigers last Thursday in Ephrata, for the first time in two years. “We expected it to be competitive,” Tronson said. He got what he bargained for. The Bulldogs outshot Ephrata 10-4 and Suzy McCall had three saves during the match. But in the 53rd minute, Ephrata scored on a deflection from a Bulldog defender.

Gaby Gonzalez fights her way around an Okanogan defender Saturday. She assisted in both goals in the match. “My personal thoughts on this match is that we played our best overall match of the season to date,” Tronson said. “We had great ball movement and good defending all over the field. This match was more of a playoff type match in the level of play. The players at the end of the match made the comment that they want to play Ephrata again.” They will get their chance on Oct. 7 at home. By Saturday, in the match against Okanogan, the team was starting to wear down, facing the third match in five days. The first half hour was spent testing the field, then Mackenzi Brunner scored off an assist from Gaby Gonzalez. The two teamed up again for a goal in second half.
“For the match, we outshot Okanogan 13-0,” Tronson said. “Again, our backline of freshmen — Karly Theis and Mikayla Sites — and Senior Kaylee Carson did not allow a shot on goal.” Going into Tuesday’s match against the Cascade Kodiaks (results were not available at press time), Gonzalez was leading the team with eight goals and four assists followed by Brunner and Helm, who both had six goals and two assists. Suzy McCall had four shutouts and only allowed one goal. The team moves out of league play to host 2A Ellensburg on Thursday.

said he divided them up so they wouldn’t run together. If they hadn’t been split up, the girls would have been first overall, he said. The meet included more than 200 runners in the three men’s races and 99 in the women’s races. “It was an outstanding race,” Durheim said. “The boys ran great as a team. The girls ran a good race and they’re going to get a lot better.” He said it was the first race for several girls, including Jozie Kimes, Joslin Odle, Meggie Green and Kenoyer. Durheim said he will split up the team next week, taking six boys and six girls to Runner’s Soul Cross Country Invitational on Saturday in Plantes Ferry, Spokane Valley, and the rest to Walla Walla Point State Park for the Wenatchee Invitational. In Spokane, the Bulldog’s top runners, including Velazquez and Paton, will be competing against some of the best teams in the state. “I’m not sure how they’ll do. I’m hoping someone comes in the top 20,” Durheim said. Nevonne McDaniels can be reached at 548-5286 or reporter@ cashmerevalleyrecord.com.

Cashmere volleyball wins thriller By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer The Cashmere Bulldog volleyball team provided the home crowd with some suspense Thursday night, winning over Okanogan three games to two. “There was plenty of heartattack factor,” said Head Coach Wendy Crossland. Cashmere won the first game 25-13, lost the second 25-19, won the third 25-14, lost the fourth 25-21. The fifth game stayed within a point until Cashmere rallied at the end to win 17-15. As the first home game of the season, it was nice to see the crowd, Crossland said. And the logistics of what balls to use, which bleachers to set up and other details were quickly dealt with so they could focus on the game. It was also the team’s first match that went to the full five games. The jamboree had three games, they lost to Chelan in three games and beat Omak in four. “We won against Okanogan, but it went to five games. Frankly that is good. We played more volleyball and realized we can play five full games. We’re in good shape,” she said. “We showed up to play. The girls have a desire to make this one of the best seasons for volleyball. We have the talent to do that for sure.” And the score was pretty close even on the games they lost, scor-
ing 19 in the second game and 21 in the fourth game. “We missed some serves and maybe a hit or two,” she said. But the defense was solid. “Erin Smith and Kaylee Caudill had the most digs and passes and rarely shanked out. I’m confident in our defense. They were willing to get to the ball and cover everything and follow through,” she said. “Our libero, Breanna Lee, is doing great.” Mikela Kowatsch, who did not play last year, was an effective server in the game. “Her serves were consistent. In clutch times, she kept doing her thing,” Crossland said. On the offense, the team was also finding its groove, with consistent sets from Caitlin Salgado, finding hitters Erin Smith and Kendra Weiler. “When they’re on, they’re on,” she said. Weiler had 12 serves in game three. In game five, Kaylee Caudill had eight hits and four kills. “That was her biggest game for kills,” Crossland said. Overall, she said, it was a good game, though a quick finish would have been nice, too. Her wish was granted Saturday in a game on the road against Tonasket. The Bulldogs won all three games, 25-22, 25-21 and 25-13. “Overall, the team played well and they did a good job,” Crossland said. Caudhill had nine kills, Weiler

Crossland said Lee, the libero, had two aces with 10 solid serves in game three. “The team played well and they did a good job,” Crossland said. The Bulldogs faced the Cascade Kodiaks on Tuesday. Results were not available at presstime, but beforehand Crossland said the girls were up to the challenge of facing
last year’s number two team. “We’ll show up. We’re really excited. We’ve already faced Chelan, the number one. Initially I was concerned at facing Chelan three times, but now I’m grateful. It ups the ante and ups our abilities and the challenge.” Next up on the schedule is an away game at Manson on Saturday.

CHS drama presents ‘Dracula’ and haunted theater By Nevonne McDaniels Staff writer Susan Gubsch has been Cashmere High School’s drama class teacher since 1995 and has been directing the school plays since 2004. And all of her students know “she doesn’t do scary.” Not scary movies, not scary books. Not scary plays. Until this year. Rehearsals for “Dracula” are underway. The play is set for Oct. 28-30 at Cashmere Middle School’s performing arts center. With it will be a haunted theater. “Two for the price of one,” Gubsch said. “But people can opt out of the haunted theater if they want.” She admits she might be one of those to opt out of what her students foresee as a creepy, gruesome, expect-the-unexpected thrill that will be a warm up for the story played out on the stage. Gubsch and the Cascade High School drama club, along with a lot of help from parents and community members and her director, Nan Missal, put on a fall play and a spring musical each year. And she tries to make sure each class has an opportunity to get a variety in the four years, from classics like “Little Women” to “All I Really Needed I Learned in Kindergarten.” She also alternates plays that have relatively small casts one year with those that include everyone the next year. And each year, she asks the juniors what they would like to do during their senior year. “They wanted scary,” she said of this year’s seniors. (She is carrying over the theme — in a way — to the spring musical “Beauty and the Beast.” Auditions for that start in November.) And, since it is also a year when she wanted everyone to be involved, she decided a haunted theater would be in order for the fall production. Students who did not get a role in Dracula, will have a character in the haunted theater. “It gives everyone a chance to
“Black curtains go a long way in a vampire play.” In all, between students in the club after school, students in her drama class and parent and community volunteers, about 100 people will be involved in the production end of the play and haunted theater. But that’s nothing new. “The parent and community support is wonderful every year,” she said. “There’s no way we could do it without their help.” Photo by Nevonne McDaniels
Ideas for the haunted theater get some laughs during a planning session at the Cashmere High School’s Drama Club meeting Sept. 21. The haunted theater and the play “Dracula” will be presented to the public on Oct. 28-30 at the Cashmere Middle School. work on characterization and make up,” she said. And planning. Lots of planning. Play auditions were Sept. 7 and 8. The cast list was posted Sept. 9 and planning for the haunted theater commenced Sept. 14, between play rehearsals. The first planning session included turning loose the creative energy of the club, with its 30-plus members imagining the worst and writing it all down on butcher paper and then sharing the ideas with the rest of the group. Gubsch said the seventh graders at the middle school also will add their input. Their ideas included scenes from nearly every horror movie ever produced — though surprisingly few were vampire-related — but inspiration wasn’t limited to the big screen. Simply creepy things like clowns, dolls and spiders were also high on the list. Along with blood. Lots of blood. “We want it to be as scary as possible without leaving scars,” said Senior Benjamin Conrad. “Well, maybe little scars.” And the students were looking forward to the opportunity to be more interactive with audience members — especially if it means jumping out from behind a wall in the hopes of making them
scream. But it’s done in good fun. They are looking to strike a balance. And, as Gubsch said, attendees don’t have to go through the haunted theater to get to the play. The cast and crew read-throughs started immediately. One of the challenges is to tweak the play to fit the cast. For instance, Dr. Peter Seward’s part was written for a male, but Karley Blomquist has the role as Dr. Patricia Seward, so all the “he” and “him” are being changed “she” and “her.” The next step in the production process is to pare down the scary ideas for the haunted theater into a workable piece and start building the set. That will be in full swing by early October, with the help of parents, who also help with costumes. Set-building parties have been scheduled for Oct. 9 and 16. Fortunately, Gubsch said, the”Dracula” set is simple, so the set crew can pay more attention to the haunted theater. “We’re going with the less is more idea for the play,” she said.

Life & Health
Along the Wenatchee Along the Wenatchee Pat Morris It is very likely you have never taken such a trip as the Egbert Trasks did in May 1892, traveling from the Yakima Valley to Na-hahum Canyon. The incidents preserved in letters to a friend in Boston relate hardships of a not unusual kind for that day, when dropping down from a 5,000-foot summit to less than 1,000, as well as other difficulties of interest to us, who whiz over the same mountains so easily. The Trasks had tried farming in the Moxee Valley, but abandoned it for the prospects of a ranch not far from the new railroad line going in but not finished. On the morning they left, their
farm wagon was loaded with plow, seeds, farm implements, food for the summer and a camp outfit. It would take all day, even with their four horses, to reach a spring. The next morning they came to a freighting trail, long established, carrying goods to Ellensburg. Along it, and property spaced, were stage stations offering food and lodging. Egbert drove the teams and his wife, Annie, rode one of their saddle horses, herding a second, plus a colt. Watering the horses when coming to a stream, letting them graze, a necessity also, they traveled until darkness threatened. Nine days later and crossing the Kittitas Valley, they could see the wooded slopes of the Wenatchee Mountains and their rugged peaks growing closer daily. In this valley there were many evidences of homesteading, where land was cleared and in crops and a cabin run up for a home. A railroad had been built
Corn, a harvest report Corn season was late this year and it is already winding down. We sell corn at our fruit stand ooking from the Kallstrom Farm in with Quincy, and they tell me the growing season will soon come eri to an end. The Kallstrom family grows a super sweet corn, that Teri Miller has been the best corn I remember eating in a long time. It is so good the boys that work for me eat it uncooked everyday they work. Corn has had to struggle this year to grow like everything else, and supplies have been limited. The food processors in Quincy have had quite a few days this year of shutdown, due to lack of product. I have not heard how the potato crop is this year, but I am hoping the spud growers have a great harvest. Washington is the nations top potato producer and creates many jobs in this state. Recently while in the Palouse, the wheat harvest was under way, and many calling it a vintage year for wheat. Our weather pattern this year was not good to vegetable or fruit growers, but was very beneficial to the dry land wheat growers. Home gardens also have struggled this year, so if need some delicious fruits or veggies, come out to the Tuesday or Thursday Farmers’ Market or a local fruit stand. There is still plenty of time to freeze or can food for the winter. Don’t forget the corn.
Corn Pudding 4 eggs, separated 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Pinch of ground cinnamon and nutmeg 4 ears of corn 1 cup half and half 1 cup milk Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 1-1/2 quart baking dish. Remove kernels from corn. In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored, about 5-8 minutes. Add butter, sugars, salt, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg ; mix well. Add corn. Stir in cream and milk. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into yolk mixture. Pour into baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees about 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes clean. Cover loosely with foil, the last 10 minutes if necessary to prevent over browning.

through and the prospect of prosperity was growing. One more long day and the last stage station before the climb to the Wenatchee Mountain summit was endured with no stop for lunch. At dusk they halted at this goal. When they stopped to eat a warm meal at this lodging place, they received little encouragement to risk crossing the summit where snow and mud and steepness forbid. Next morning they set out, daring the risks. The first mile was a delusion. The snow was there alright. Thankful they had lightened the wagon load by packing gear on one of the ponies, they pressed on. Pine trees and steep slopes were everywhere. The mud mired the team many times. About 4 p.m. the travel and the
exhausted team signalled stop. After tending the stock, the Trasks pitched their tent and went to bed. Just outside a fire blazed. When the night wind came up, they were astonished to find the pine tree next to it had been set afire. A move was necessary. Dawn brought more reasons for astonishment. Three of their four horses had left camp for lower levels. Saddling the ponies, the couple searched all day without results. They had come on all sorts of draws and canyons with grass and wildflowers to attract horses, but so far none were the right ones. Finally they returned to camp. In the last rays of the setting sun, they spotted the horses two canyons away. Too tired to go along and be-
lieving she was near the stage station, Mrs. Trask set out on her pony. Only after coming to the end of the road did she realize she was lost. Fighting to keep her composure, she decided to backtrack her pony’s hoof prints. She rode into camp as her husband brought back the horses. Electing to spend one more night at the stage station, they met a freighter with his load also headed for the Wenatchee Valley. He offered to help them gain the summit if they helped him by pulling his load up with additional horses. Next morning Egbert fastened two of his team to the freighter’s wagon and with all six horses, he was relieved to see them able to make fairly good time on the route. Here we read from one of An-
nie’s letters: “Meanwhile we took the other horses and went up to where our wagon was and where I stopped and got dinner in a snowstorm over a campfire. “We found our hens and other possessions safe and sound. When the men returned I had some good hot coffee for them and crackers, fried ham and hot potatoes. “After dinner the freighter put two of his horses on with our four and pulled the wagon to the summit. We had only ordinary, two-horse loads, but it was all six horses could pull to get through the mud. Before we reached the summit we went about 2 miles in old snow a foot deep. If the going up was bad, what shall I say about going down!” Next week: A hair-raising experience.

Christina’s Culinary Adventures By Christina Forchemer-Zucktriegel My niece, Allie, and I, took our aunt and uncle from Germany up to Gustav’s the other day for lunch. They wanted a juicy, American hamburger and I knew just where to bring them for a great sandwich or salad with a world-class view. We were sure to sit up on the deck with a panoramic view of the mountains and breathtaking surroundings. This is a great place to take visitors when the weather permits, because this is definitely one of the best ways to experience our gorgeous village. Gustav’s Pub and Restaurant has been open for 30 years and is very proud of their hand-cut, homemade french fries which are made daily on premises. Famous for their burgers, especially the Ortega Burger, which is made with melted Jack cheese, a mild green chili and all of the other usual condiments and toppings, Gustav’s is a popular eatery for locals and visitors alike. It’s casual, rustic and appeals to the outdoorsy crowd, young and old. I ordered the Gustav burger and fries ($9.75) and the rest of the gang ordered a Caesar salad served with garlic bread and the Patty Melt. This is a classic sandwich made with ground beef, grilled onions, Tillamook cheddar and Swiss on toasted rye. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared with warm, toasted buns, crisp greens and just enough sauce. My burger was very well done but that was my fault because with all of the chatting, I forgot to order it medium, definitely the juicier and better alternative. I love crispy fries and noticed that Gustav’s are soft and far from crunchy in any way, but they are natural, freshly cut from large, substantial russet potatoes and that is a real plus. For budgetconscious diners, the grilled tomato, green chili, and cheese sandwich with potato salad is the best bargain on the menu at $7.95. I am looking forward to ordering the Alaskan Halibut and Chips ($13.95) next time we stop in. So many establishments serve cod as a fried fish option but halibut is by far my favorite albeit a more spendy choice. The wild salmon on greens or spinach salad are awesome and healthy menu options, as well. I noticed that Gustav’s serves Thomas Kemper Rootbeer on draft. One of my favorites! They also serve 30 beers on draft with an emphasis on Northwest Microbrews and are home to Icicle Ales since 1981. If you stop in between 4 and 6 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, Sept. through June, take advantage of their special menu with deep discounts. Either way, have a great time! Cheers! I’m sure you all know where Gustav’s is located, but if you don’t their address is: 617 U.S. Hwy. 2, across from Lions Club Park.

With this minimally invasive technique, it is now possible to remove gall bladders, the uterus and ovaries, perform back and sinus surgeries and many more. Recovery occurs within days, there is little pain, and side effects are reduced. This approach has not only shortened hospital stays and improved quality of life, but it also has reduced the cost of care. In recent years, the development of robotic surgery has offered a new and exciting frontier for surgical procedures. Marketed as the Da Vinci system, this device allows the surgeon to perform highly complex procedures without ever touching the patient. Working from a console, the physician uses the robot to make small incisions. And with miniaturized instruments and a high definition 3-D camera, is able to perform the most delicate of procedures. Robotic surgery allows the surgical treatment of colon, rectum, bladder and kidney cancers and is now widely used to perform prostatectomies for prostate cancer. The machine has also been used to repair heart valve abnormalities and coronary bypass surgery. Like endoscopic surgery, the robotic approaches allow a shorter recovery time, less blood loss, less pain and a lower risk of infection. This technology has created a great deal of excitement in the health care community, and the use of this approach has shown explosive growth. Though the robotic surgery has brought many medical advances and benefits, it comes with a high price tag. In a recent article published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers examined the significant impact that this technology has had on health care costs. In the past three years, the number of robotic surgeries performed in the United States has increased from 80,000 to 205,000, and the number of Da Vinci systems available in hospitals rose from 800 to 1,400. Each system ranges in price from $1 million to $2.5 million, and the use of robotic surgery increases the cost of procedures anywhere from $3,200 to $8,000. Overall, robotic surgeries increases the annual cost of health care by $2.5 billion. And if the number of procedures continue to increase at the current rate,
the total cost could run higher in the billions. In addition to cost, there are other concerns with robotic surgeries. While it has opened up complex and very difficult surgeries to minimally invasive approaches, the system is often used for operations such as gall bladder surgery and hysterectomies, which could just as easily be performed using cheaper endoscopic approaches. There is also evidence that the availability of the robotic surgery increases the number of procedures performed. Between 2005 and 2008, prostatectomies increased by 60 percent, despite a reduction in the incidence of prostate cancer. It has been suggested that the availability of the robotic approach has led to more surgeons recommending prostatectomy over other forms of treatment. Making matters more complicated, studies have shown the robotic surgery for prostate cancer has the same risk of adverse effects as earlier surgical approaches. The incidence of erectile dysfunction, incontinence or infection is identical with all forms of surgical treatments for prostate cancer. The case of the robotic surgery is a perfect example of how great breakthroughs come with great challenges. Robotic surgery is a valuable and exciting advance in surgical treatment. However, it should be used in circumstances where other approaches are not available or effective. We must be aware of the cost implications and use the tried, proven, highly effective therapies when possible. More research is also needed to compare the various approaches to treatment, so the health care community truly understands all the alternatives. Your physician is not the only one responsible for determining when to employ the greatest advances in medicine. You, the patient, must be an empowered and active participant in your medical decisions. This is the only way to assure the most appropriate treatment possible. Remember, newer does not always mean better. In medicine, while the tried and true therapy may not be the most exciting option, it is often the most reliable.

Licensed anglers are encouraged to harvest the remaining game fish in all of the lakes mentioned prior to the rehab. I know the Caliche lakes are full of perch.

Every once in a while I get one of these notices that some anglers find hard believe. No size restrictions and no limit? I know, that’s not what we’re used to reading when it comes to lake fishing in our area. However, there are several lakes slated for rehabilitation in Grant County, and temporarily the daily limits and size restrictions have been removed for all game fish. The lakes found in the Columbia Wildlife Area south of O’Sullivan Dam include: Heart, June, all of the Windmill lakes, Canal and Pit. These lakes are open to unrestricted fishing until Oct. 3. Bag limit and size restrictions have been removed from nearby North and South Teal lakes for the same time period. Other lakes that will be rehabbed and have temporarily suspended bag and size limits are found near George, Washington. Martha Lake is found just east of
The fall-run salmon bite is beginning to get hot below Priest Rapids Dam. Anglers have been hooking big fall-runs for a while now, but the fishing has definitely improved in the past ten days or so. These salmon are still coming over Bonneville Dam at a rate of 10,000 to 12,000 a day, and the really big numbers, the 20,000 a
day counts haven’t even reach John Day. Fall-runs are passing over Priest Rapids at up to 800 a day, and those fish will be hitting the Wenatchee area soon. I have three trips planned to the Vernita area in the next week or so and I can’t wait to do battle with some of these big, bright kings. I will tape a show early this week, and it will be on the air in early October, early enough to give anglers some important tips before the season closes on the 22nd. I have been told to bring along a bunch of Super Baits in the lemon-lime color, and I just happen to have a bunch of them in my box. The steelhead fishing is also good in this stretch of the river. I hope to load up on kings early enough to spend some time getting some these, too.
