Casting out: Expanding on a predator’s range

By LUKE OVGARD For the Herald and News July 27, 2018

taxes on out-of-state renters and prospective buyers to discourage the unwelcome exodus, I doubt that will happen.

BEND — Predators typically range much wider than the prey species they hunt. While a deer might live out its entire life within a few square miles, the cougar it fears likely covers an area 50 or 100 times that size.

So here we are, watching property values skyrocket, highways become clogged with the congealing fat of influx and having nothing to show for the increase in population.

Anglers, even catch and release anglers, are predators. Fortunately for some of the less-talented predators, grocery stores exist. The predator in me came to the painful realization that I’d never really expanded my home range beyond the Upper Klamath Basin and a handful of waters in Jackson and Lake counties. Sure, I traveled a lot to fish, but most of my trips took me across the state or even across the country or world. And sure, I’d found success locally, but what was I missing out on?

Detour Bend has arguably been hit the hardest by this mass inter-state immigration. A city with so much promise has become increasingly expensive, commute times have doubled and tripled and it has begun to lose the unique flavor as it becomes a mixing zone for the culture clash of Portland and California. Still, it has nearby waters not yet ruined by the masses. One such water is the Upper Deschutes River, home to the 9-pound, 6-ounce state record brook trout.

Eventually, I decided to just park on the shoulder in a spot equidistant from the two nearest prominent access points and hoof it. Remote It proved to be the right decision, as I quickly landed my first brookie. The fish wasn’t massive, but it and most of the others I’d land that night were respectable brookies, all 9- to 14-inches in length. They were eating everything: Rapalas, spoons, spinners, jigs. My painted trophy hit a Rapala, jerked erratically downstream. It assaulted the wooden fish after darting out from under a logjam. At 15 inches and 1.25 pounds, it wasn’t monstrous, but it was a very nice brook trout. I landed seven brookies and five redbands and released them all back into the crystalline alpine waters, slightly more educated. Surprise

There were species within 100 miles I’d never caught, waters within an hour’s drive I’d never fished and memories within an album’s play length I’d never made.

When I detoured here on my way home from visiting my brother in Corvallis this summer, I saw the polluted spill of overpopulation already tainting this river.

I promised myself that would change.

Each of the three primary access points on the Upper Deschutes were so choked with people, I didn’t even get out of the car. The bridge just upstream of Crane Prairie Reservoir had more than a dozen vehicles parked nearby with a small army of flyfishermen on pontoon boats, kayaks and on foot combat fishing the stretch above and below the crossing.

A silver flash I assumed was a nice rainbow struck my Rapala but didn’t get hooked. This scene played out several times before I wondered if a spinner might have a better chance at hooking the fish.

The second spot had half a dozen anglers.

Just before I brought the fish to net, I was pleasantly surprised to see my first mountain whitefish, a salmonid native to the Deschutes and other rivers across the West that has been extirpated from much of its native range because it is viewed as less desirable than other game fish.

People Oregon might be the greatest state. After traveling to most U.S. states, it remains my favorite. For the last 10 to 20 years, this near-utopia has borne two great crosses: it’s on fire every summer, and people from other, less desirable states have heard how great Oregon is and have begun moving here in unwashed hordes. Though restrictions on logging have created one problem, our own self-pride in this state have created the other. As much as I’d love to see Oregon impose nonresident ACROSS 1. Get rid of 5.

Brook trout are invasive fish that have displaced Bull trout in most areas, but they certainly are a gorgeous quarry.

It bore the same dimensions as the largest brookie: 15 inches and 1.25 pounds, and I marveled at its unique biology before letting it go: the small mouth that looked surprisingly nose-like, the large platinum scales and the penetrating yellow eye. I lost two more whitefish that day, both pushing 20 inches. Mosquitoes and the long walk back to the car finally prompted me to go before darkness blanketed the foreign landscape, and I wound up writing a story with a much darker tone.

The “quish-quish” sound of my waders was muffled by the thick forest as I walked by to my car — a triumphant predator with newly expanded hunting grounds. Read more at; Follow on Insta, Twitter, Fishbrain @lukeovgard; Contact

Energy Trust of Oregon tours Klamath Works sites

Workforce program saves $5,400 in projected energy costs By SEAN BASSINGER H&N Staff Reporter July 26, 2018

For Mike Colgrove, issues of affordable housing, cutting business expenses and even challenges related to irrigation could each come back to the energy-saving game. Colgrove, who has served as executive director of the Energy Trust of Oregon for two years, visited Klamath Falls Tuesday afternoon with the group’s board of directors. Their first stop was to take a tour of the upcoming Klamath Works campus and nearly finished Klamath Falls Gospel Mission. Roger Hamilton, another local who once served as a Klamath County commissioner, was also recently named president of the group. This visit preceded the nonprofit’s first board meeting ever held outside of Portland.

Oregon is a statewide nonprofit that helps communities and businesses look into renewable energy options. The group works with customers of utility companies such as Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, Northwest Natural, Avista and Cascade Natural Gas. In Klamath County, the Energy Trust of Oregon has helped reduce energy costs for more than 10,500 homes and 1,000 businesses since starting. The total number of savings over time has been an estimated $5.9 million. Colgrove said he was continually impressed with innovations being made in Klamath and Lake counties, including the prospect of solar projects arriving in the area. Previous reports from the Herald & News mention more than $40 million toward new projects set to arrive in each area. Colgrove put emphasis on energy savings also connecting back to affordability for renters and homeowners.

Cutting energy costs

Getting ‘The Works’

Founded in 2002, the Energy Trust of

Tuesday’s tour started with an overview from Klamath Works Executive Director Joy McInnis, who took the Energy Trust’s board of directors on a tour of her organization’s main building.

Need some “Retail Therapy”? Tons of great bargains for your shopping pleasure!!! “Fabulous Finds Furniture Gallery” upstairs, is full of wonderful gently used and repurposed furniture for your home!!!

Antique, Craft and Collectible Mall The Store you can’t ignore!


“It just made sense,” Colgrove said. “There’s so much going on down here.”

“If you couldn’t afford the utility bills in an ongoing basis too, you’re just as likely to lose your home or be evicted from your apartment for whatever reason,” Colgrove said.

McInnis went through an outline of the group’s continued goals, which include helping people enter or reenter the workforce through job opportunities, life skills classes and training in other areas.

Klamath Works Executive Director Joy McInnis, far left, explains the goals and day-to-day operations of Klamath Works and the new Klamath Works campus as board members from Energy Trust of Oregon and others listen in during a site tour Tuesday, July 24.

“We take anybody who is struggling with employment, whatever that barrier is,” McInnis said. Formerly a car dealership, the building is already saving on energy costs through new LED lighting fixtures. Ben Reher, a lighting specialist with Evergreen Consulting, said that the building previously had 400-watt halogen lights, versus the new 90-watt LED fixtures and 110-watt fixtures in the back.

The new mission is adjacent to the Klamath Works property on the new campus. The mission’s newest open date is slated for September, according to Executive Director Kent Berry. Berry described the services they offered during the tour, which in 2017 included serving more than 60,000 meals and more than 990 volunteers putting in nearly 13,000 hours of time.

This came out to savings of 55,000 kWh based on a five-day work week, or $5,400 a year.

“We just are thrilled,” he said. “We could not do this without the partnership of the community and so many individuals.”

“That’s pretty good savings,” Reher said.

The new mission building will also have several solar panels placed on the roof, another effort Colgrove said the Energy Trust of Oregon was impressed with.

A new mission The tours wrapped up with trips over to the three buildings at the Klamath Falls Gospel Mission, a new $2.7 million facility funded through several community efforts.

“There are a lot of projects going on down here and a lot of interest,” he said. “We’re just glad to be a part of it.”

Cougars In The News: Shift In Range Brings More Reported Encounters Jack Fisher Jul 25, 2018

Northwesterners are hearing a lot about mountain lions lately. Since May, an extremely rare fatal attack in the Washington Cascades, a Willamette Valley pool party interrupted by a wandering cat and a viral Facebook video of a mountain lion lounging in a southern Oregon woman’s living room have made headlines across the region. Are the Northwest’s mountain lions acting out of character this summer season? The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Derek Broman says no. But they are adapting to a gradual shift in their range. “They’ve exceeded the maximum number of animals that the habitat can support. Younger animals are dispersing to lower quality habitats. They’re exploiting urban areas and doing quite well,” said Broman, the state carnivore biologist. “Carrying capacity has been reached.” And when mountain lions move into areas where people aren’t as accustomed to seeing them, it can lead to more sighting reports, news stories and interest on social media. “They get more attention because they are unusual,” Broman said. In May, the Seattle area saw a fatal cougar attack. Two cyclists in North Bend, Washington, were attacked — one fatally — by a mountain lion, in an incident that a Washington Department of Fish and

Wildlife official called “incredibly abnormal.” A necropsy performed by Washington State University released last week indicated that the male cat was lean but not emaciated. “The cause of aggressive behavior reported in this cat was not evident,” the necropsy found. Just this week, Springfield residents had their own cougar encounter. Upon spotting a mountain lion in their backyard in the middle of the afternoon, a group of teenagers called police. With the help of a local game tracker, the animal was located and euthanized. Officials expressed concern about the cat’s uncharacteristic daytime activity and the normally skittish animal’s apparent disregard for human presence in the area. And in early July, an Ashland woman posted on Facebook about a strangely amicable mountain lion encounter in her home. “There’s a mountain lion in our living room,” Lauren Taylor wrote earlier this month. “This is wild.”

Ultimately, after poking around her living room and taking a cat nap, Taylor said the lion exited through an open door and disappeared into the night.

Taylor did not respond to interview requests Wednesday. In her July 7 Facebook post, she wrote that she believes the cat entered through an open door into a room that “has huge plants & stairs built around real tree branches … she likely didn’t even realize she was indoors until she was inside.”

Michelle Dennehey, wildlife communications coordinator at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, noted that despite a viral photo and video album on social media, this incident has not been confirmed by the department.

After discovering the animal in her home,

“When a cougar exhibits certain behavior, like being seen repeatedly in daylight or killing pets,” Dennehey said, “ODFW advises that they’re euthanized.” Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has published a set of guidelines for living and recreating in cougar country. If you see a cougar in the wild, stay calm. They will often retreat if presented with the opportunity. Stand your ground, maintain eye contact, and speak in a loud, firm voice.

Tour de Outback offers backcountry beauty

Lake County bike ride set for Aug. 4 By KURT LIEDTKE H&N Staff Reporter July 27, 2018

A unique ride through pristine landscapes and open roads awaits those making the trek for the Tour de Outback – Lake County’s annual celebration of the Oregon Outback Scenic Bikeway. A variety of rides are being coordinated for event, which began in 2014 following Lake County’s lone state scenic bikeway designation. The bikeway follows a near-100 mile loop from Lakeview up to Plush, down to Adel, and returning to the Lake County Fairgrounds. The Oregon Outback Scenic Bikeway combines beauty with challenge, offering a high-altitude ride with climbs and descents through rural Oregon showcasing lush forest, scenic mountains and high desert all in a single day’s ride. Tour de Outback brings cyclists from across the western United States to enjoy the setting, and camaraderie with fellow cycling enthusiasts. Campgrounds, parks and local restaurants are located along the route, with an abundance of wildlife to view. All rides include support vehicles and aid stations with snacks, liquids and supplies strategically located throughout the route to assist cyclists. Coordinated rides include a century (90-mile) route, a metric century (65 miles), 25-mile intermediate ride, and a beginner ride (5-10 Locally Owned and Serving Basin Since 1991

Trail Run, inviting runners to trek the trail in memory of Vandenberg, who often ran and rode the trail.

All rides begin at the Lake County Fairgrounds, except for the metric ride which will begin at Camas Snow Park. The Century starts promptly at 6:30 a.m., followed by the Metric at 8:30 a.m., and all other rides beginning at 9 a.m.

Oregon was the first state to begin designating official scenic bikeways, promoting cycling tourism and bikefriendly businesses across Oregon’s various scenic landscapes. According to Travel Oregon, there are currently 15 designated Oregon scenic bikeways, most located in the Willamette Valley and northern portion of the state.

New to this year’s festivities will be a trail run, dedicated in memory of Noni Vandenberg, a Lakeview teacher who died in 2016 after being hit by a car while biking. Also in her honor, in May, Lakeview Town Council voted to change the name of the Bullard Canyon Trail, a 14.8-mile trek on mostly dirt roads through the hills overlooking Lakeview, to the Noni Vandenberg Trail. Coinciding with the bike rides will be the first annual Tour de Outback

Cracking Cold Cases: Unsolved homicides in Klamath County 60 years on By STEPHEN FLOYD H&N Staff Reporter July 29, 2018

Four months have passed since the remains of Jack James Hasbrouck were discovered in a wooded area near Beatty. He had been shot to death and a suspect has yet to be arrested. It’s not that unusual for time to elapse between when victims are found and suspects are captured. Some investigations just take time. But there are more than a few cases where months have turned to years — and sometimes decades. When a trail goes this cold, it takes luck as much as still to find a new lead, but police don’t stop looking. You never know what will break the case. Klamath County currently has 15 unsolved homicides, including Hasbrouck’s, dating back more than 60 years. There’s also at least five missing persons cases that could have been murder, though remains have yet to be located. Still on the hunt Detective Nick Kennedy, with the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office, said these cold murder cases in Oregon remain open as long as a suspect has yet to be identified. “You treat a cold case just like you do a new one,” he said. “When you get time to get in there and start investigating, you just talk to as many people as you can.” Kennedy’s office is currently overseeing six unsolved murder investigations and is offering support as needed to homicide detectives with the Klamath Falls Police Department and Oregon State Police. He has a running list he keeps at his desk and related case files within arm’s reach. Kennedy said people who watch police dramas on TV would be surprised by how much work he actually does in his office when investigating a killing. “It’s really, really boring, next to TV,” he said. “I spend a huge amount of time at my desk.” A break in the case Kennedy said, when it comes to cracking a cold case, it can sometimes be a matter of a witness coming forward who had been hesitant in years past.

“Sometimes you get lucky because fortunes change,” he said. “And sometimes people that have been reluctant to tell you everything they were aware of will come forward and — or a least if you can locate them — not be quite as resistant as they were at some point in time.” One example of a case being broken by someone coming forward was the 1971 murder of Joyce Cross, who was found bludgeoned to death on the south bank of the Lost River Diversion Canal. In 2008, a man told OSP detectives he believed his uncle had something to do with Cross’ death. The uncle had died, but police believed more than one person played a role in the killing. While re-examining the case, detectives came across the name of Lavon Owens, who was implicated early in the investigation but was not charged. Due to the advent of DNA analysis, a semen sample from Cross’ underwear was compared to Owens’ DNA and the two were a match.

Detective Nick Kennedy points to missing persons posters in the lobby of the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office has 11 active missing persons cases, some of which could have been homicides.

While investigators prepared to indict Owens in 2010, the suspect committed suicide. Cross’ case is now closed with Owens named as the killer.

“You treat a cold case just like you do a new one. When you get time to get in there and start investigating, you just talk to as many people as you can.”

“You got to be pretty close for it to match up and get a positive identification,” he said, noting parents and siblings are ideal for a DNA match.

DNA game changer

Dusting off evidence

Kennedy said DNA has played a significant role in helping solve old homicides and missing persons cases after it was first used as evidence in 1986. He said groups like the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) have become a hub for information, where detectives from across the country can compare DNA samples and other evidence.

Once a case is cracked and a killer is found, it is time for the district attorney’s office to step in and prosecute. Klamath County District Attorney Eve Costello said prosecuting a cold case is easier than it sounds if evidence was collected and stored properly.

“From a psychological standpoint — if you read the studies — when people have done something that horrific, they have a need to tell someone,” she said.

“If the investigation was done appropriately at the time, hopefully you still have solid physical evidence, and our law enforcement has been pretty good about keeping that physical evidence,” she said. Costello said potential testimony could come from those to whom a killer has confessed. She said, in most cases, a murderer has a natural desire to talk about what they did.

But DNA can’t help in every case. Kennedy said, in the matter of Charles Michael Butler, who went missing form his cabin on Bly Mountain in 1990, police know of no living relatives with a close enough relation to give a reliable DNA sample.

NamUs helped Klamath County solve a missing persons case in 2009 when the siblings of Bruce Wayne Brewer provided a DNA sample to compare to a set of remains that matched Brewer’s description. Brewer had gone missing in 1992 while visiting Klamath County from his home in Tourtdale. NamUs verified the remains in question belonged to Brewer and Kennedy said Brewer likely died from exposure while traveling back to Multnomah County.

Prior to her role as DA, Costello was a career defense attorney specializing in defending homicide suspects. She said she could not recall being assigned any cold cases, as her assignments typically involved more recent murders.

The rural challenges Costello is also head of the Klamath County Major Crimes Team, which investigates all homicides in the county. She said one of the biggest hurdles toward solving cold cases is retaining the personnel necessary to focus on unsolved crimes. “People get paid a lot less here than they get paid in other counties,” she said. “It’s hard to keep somebody — you know, the young people that are oftentimes really energetic about this — here long enough to follow it through completely.” She also said rural areas can mean few witnesses to a murder, with so many open spaces in the county. And even though there was a gunshot or a distinctive car involved in the murder, local residents may simply think someone was practicing with a firearm or a traveler was passing through and not take note. Witnesses encouraged Costello said anyone who thinks they have information about an unsolved murder should come forward, even with a small detail. “If you know anything, even as inane and stupid as you think it might be, if you know anything, just let us know,” she said. “It’s important to share that information, because every little piece helps.” Kennedy also encouraged residents to share what they can and said, just because a case has gone cold, this doesn’t mean police have lost interest. “As far as I’m concerned, for me every one of those is open and active,” he said. “Just like a homicide that happened last week, if I get information on one of these, I’m going to treat it the same as I would one that is current.”

Returning to Lassen

By LEE JUILLERAT For the Herald and News July 27, 2018

The photos don’t lie. It was fall in 1984 when my daughters, friends and I posed for photos atop Lassen Peak, the 10,457-foot elevation mountaintop that dominates the skyline at Lassen Volcanic National Park. The photos show my daughters, Molly and Susie, then 11 and 9, sitting proudly on Lassen’s summit with their buddies along with others who were our 12-member group — including six kids age 12 and a year-old baby who hitched a ride in her mother’s child-carrying pack. Thirty-four years later — can it really be that long? — the camera was clicking again, this time without my daughters and the assortment of friends whose names I’ve mostly forgotten. Three-plus decades later my hiking

On top of Lassen Peak in the fall of 1984 are Molly Juillerat, far left, with her friend Katie Bailey next to her. Author Lee Juillerat is fourth from left, with his blonde-haired daughter, Susie Juillerat, seen seventh from left.

companion was Steve Underwood, who last visited Lassen’s summit more than 40 years ago while working as a seasonal park ranger in the mid-1970s. The rugged 2-1/2 mile trail to Lassen’s tippy-top, with an elevation gain of 2,000 feet, had been closed for repairs during my last park visit in 2012, when I instead settled for distant views of its ragged summit from nearby Brokeoff Mountain. Climbing together My daughters were young in 1984, but old-timers compared to several young climbers, including members of a family Steve and I played trail hop-scotch with on our climb earlier this month. The mom used a child carrier to tote her 4-year-old, but the 6- and 8-year olds hoofed it themselves. “She’s a strong woman,” the child-carrier’s husband understated of his wife. Like me and my daughters, that and other families were making its own history. But Lassen is a mountain with an older, literally more explosive history, both in the distant and relatively recent past. Geologists estimate 27,000 years ago earthquakes created the peak in as little as five years. More recently, following years of rumblings that began in 1914 with a series of ash and steam eruptions, it was May 19, 1915 when lava spilled from the volcano’s summit, some flowing 1,000 feet down its western slopes, some breaking off in large chunks that combined with snow and ash to create a massive mudflow that swept down the mountain’s eastern flank. Three days later, a violent eruption rocked the mountain, sending ash clouds 25,000 feet airborne and spilled frothy hot, pasty lava over its northwest side, disintegrating many square miles of vegetation and creating the aptly named Devastated Area.

Impressive geology Evidence of those geologic upheavals are part of the allure of hiking the trail that steeply winds up Lassen’s flanks. The view from trailhead is imposing. The trail immediately and relentlessly climbs, passing through a grove of mountain hemlocks and whitebark pines, many of them twisted by winds and seasonally heavy snow. The extensive repairs that closed the trail for six years — from 2009 to 2015 — have left behind reinforced walls, dozens of rock steps and a series of interpretive boards that provide good information about trees, flowers, geology and history — and serve as good excuses to rally from the huffing and puffing. There’s also much to see — a panorama of distant and neighboring peaks, lakes and broad fields of hardened lava and forests. Even if climbing solo, hikers are never alone. Along with the family of five, we saw hundreds of people, some retreating after summiting, a few turning back, along with dozens of others who we passed or even more who galloped past us. The trail suddenly flattens on a broad bench, but the summit is still ahead, across a snowfield and up a takeyour-pick ragged route to a jumble of crags and craters to Lassen’s caldera rim. The views from the rocky knobs fan out 360 degrees, including snowcapped Mount Shasta. On our sunny, hot day, Steve and I took in the views, munched snacks, hydrated, layered on fresh toppings of sunscreen and chatted with other happy climbers. It was different that chilly fall day 34 years ago, a day made crispy cool by nippy winds but warmed by the joy of being with friends and, most of all, my two lovely happyproud daughters.
