Smoke at unhealthy levels in Klamath Basin By STEPHEN FLOYD H&N Staff Reporter July 19, 2018

Smoke from regional wildfires has caused air quality to reach unhealthy levels in the Klamath Basin. Around 1 a.m. Wednesday, smoke particles in Klamath Falls were recorded at more than 150 parts per million, considered unhealthy for all individuals. By Wednesday afternoon, smoke levels were down to 66 parts per million, however smoky air is expected to continue until at least Thursday night. In unhealthy conditions, residents are encouraged to reduce time spent outdoors and to avoid outside activity. Those considered at-risk, including children, pregnant women, seniors and those with heart or lung conditions, should remain indoors when at all possible. Authorities believe such unhealthy conditions will persist until Thursday around 11 p.m. as westerly winds continue

End Of An Icon: Historic Nelson House Burned In Substation Fire Ian McCluskey Jul 18, 2018

For almost 80 years, the Charles E. Nelson House stood abandoned and alone, tucked into a hollow on the high plains of Oregon. A clapboard farmhouse, sun-bleached, empty, leaning against the wind. It was widely considered the most photographed abandoned farmstead in Oregon. Now, it’s gone. The iconic house near The Dalles burned to the ground in Substation Fire, which had burned more than 36,000 acres and left one person dead as of Wednesday. “[The house] takes the viewer by surprise when it comes in to view,” wrote Theresa Petterson, of Dufur, “tattered to the point of collapse, but still somehow it remains standing. Even in its precarious position it is still stately. Out of place in the middle of a wheat field but yet it belongs, as a testament to the past.” In recent years, the Nelson House gained popularity with photographers and was shared widely on social media. “I think a lot of people looked at it from the standpoint of coming out West on the Oregon Trail to build and create their dreams,” photographer Mathew Newman said. “I will miss it because of its uniqueness, and since it is literally one of the first locations I captured as a night photographer.” “So many of us cut our teeth on photographing this house,” said photographer Danielle Denham. “It was one that inspired me to start exploring.” Denham visited many times over the years to photograph the Nelson House. She returned to document it again hours after the fire. “It’s devastating to come around the turn in the road, seeing the smoking scorched land,” she said. With the greater exposure, incidents of trespassing at the house increased in recent years. By the spring of 2018, it was rumored that the house was going to be leveled to prevent further trespassing. Will Ford, who farms the wheat fields surrounding the home site, said that he did not plan to raze it, but that he was concerned about the potential for injury as the structure became more and more unstable. The clapboard Queen Anne Victorian dated

back to the late 1800s. The home was named for Charles Nelson, the last occupant of the old farmhouse. He and his wife Orma moved into it in 1927 and raised two daughters. In 1949, they left the house and it has remained empty since. Ellen Simmons grew up visiting her uncle Charles and aunt Orma at the home, when it was still a working farm. She recalled the parlor stove that heated the house, the wood stove where meals were cooked and hand-stitched quilts on the beds.


With only the rusted wagon wheels and the metal windmill tower remaining, Northwest photographers have lost one of their favorite locations, and Oregon has lost an icon of its frontier past. “I’m sure glad I got to see it one last time,” Simmons said.

Meeting your heroes — without the giddy squealing

By LUKE OVGARD For the Herald and News July 20, 2018

ORLANDO — What differentiates a dream from reality? As our Lyft pulled up to the restaurant for a group breakfast sponsored by Fishbrain, my hosts for this year’s International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST), we saw arguably the greatest bass fisherman to ever live talking on a cell phone outside, and I had to ask myself: “Was I dreaming?” “That was Roland Martin,” I said to my companions in the car, Stacy Barawed (@stacyparfait) and Chris Fowler (@fishing_with_fowler), calmly and without the slightest hint of giddy squealing. Trying to remember everything I learned in that one yoga class I thought about taking once, I began deep breathing exercises to calm myself down. After all, I was about to meet one of my heroes, and the last thing I wanted to do was fangirl and fawn all over a living legend. BUILDUP We walked in and waited for our assigned table, but it wasn’t ready. My nervous bladder sent me to the bathroom, and made sure I looked my best. You snicker, but put yourself in my shoes and see if you aren’t nervous. The party began arriving, and we went into our private dining room. Just across the street from the Orlando Convention Center sat this unassuming diner once called Danny’s that was an institution in the area until it was converted into an upscale Denny’s. Really. I was seated next to Shyanne Orvis (@shyanneorvis), who is descended from the original Orvis family but has made a name for herself as a flyfishing guide in Colorado. We swapped trout stories until the celebrities began arriving.

ICAST was a blast with Fishbrain’s Bojan Lazic, left, Roland Martin, Roland’s longtime agent Walt Reynolds, and the author.

In walked not only the king of bass, Roland Martin, but his son Scott Martin (@scottmartinchallenge), and the Canadian princess of trout and salmon, April Vokey (@ aprilvokey). The quickening of my heart rate must have been audible because Shyanne whispered, “They’re just regular people. You’re good.” It calmed me just enough to not make a fool of myself as

of fishing can do for a person. He was swarmed by my fellow Fishbrain ambassadors, so I took a moment to talk with April — I’d get a chance to catch

up with him later, anyway. She was warm, friendly and we quickly exchanged information. Then she followed me on Fishbrain. April Vokey followed me on Fishbrain. So that happened. No big deal. These folks were all celebrities in the fishing world, and there I was, standing and talking with them, taking pictures with them. Admittedly, I felt a little out of my league. Sure, I consider myself a very good fishermen, but I was among some of the best. I guess if it’s anything like real estate, being the least house in the best neighborhood is promising for the future, right? I know I’d had this dream, but since we were at Danny’s — Denny’s — I knew that strange little detail was too ordinary for my unconscious mind to conjure up because as a fisherman and a writer, I have a very active imagination. Fortunately, as in fishing, the proof is in the pictures. Read more at; Follow on Insta, Twitter, Fishbrain @lukeovgard; Contact

Holiday Market: What to expect in Klamath Falls By SEAN BASSINGER H&N Staff Reporter July 22, 2018

Carty Vaness, who works at Holiday Market in Alturas, Calif., says he takes pride in his store and company. As a visitor to Klamath Falls himself, he said he has faith in the new location and what it could bring to the community. “I think we should do real well,” Vaness said back at his own store Wednesday afternoon. Vaness, who retires in December, has worked as store leader in Alturas for the past decade, though he’s been with the company since 1967. Looking back, it was a choice he was glad he stuck with. “It’s always been a good company to work for,” Vaness said. Klamath Falls is preparing for its own Holiday Market to arrive, which North State Grocery CEO Richie Morgan, Jr. said is still on track for an opening in late August. The market, located at the former Haggen and Safeway property in downtown Klamath Falls at 211 N. Eighth St., is still undergoing minor renovations. Morgan said they have already expressed interest in hiring 40 interviewed applicants, though the store still has about 10 openings. At least eight people who already work at other North State Grocery stores have also expressed interest in moving to Klamath Falls. ‘NEIGHBORHOOD STORES’

The front entrance of the Holiday Market store in Alturas, Calif., on July 18. A new Klamath Falls store is set to open downtown at the end of August.

the name SAVMOR, which focuses more on low-price markets and deals. The company is much smaller than many national supermarket chains: Holiday Market has 15 stores including the new Klamath Falls stop, while SAVMOR has seven current locations. The move to buy out another store wasn’t exclusive to Klamath Falls: North State Grocery also bought Tops stores closing in Redding and Weaverville, according to reports from the Redding Record Searchlight in January.

Holiday Market first opened in 1962 under the ownership of Morgan’s father, Richard E. Morgan. The store was located along Front Street in Cottonwood, Calif., according to the Holiday Market website. The company continues to be headquartered in Cottonwood to this day.

Morgan said they have plans to continue their expansions if similar opportunities arise. He said they’re keeping watch on the Sacramento Valley, Sierra Nevada Foothills and, quite possibly, other locations in Southern Oregon.

Other North State Grocery stores have also opened under


In terms of prices, the company has kept an eye on the competition. For grocery pick-ups ranging between $50 to $100, Morgan said that they often came in around the same or a little under on most products at other stores. “Our goal isn’t to see how much we can charge,” Morgan said. “Our goal is to see how low we can go. Everybody’s going to be higher and lower on certain things.”

Vaness offered a tour of the Holiday Market in Alturas Wednesday afternoon, where he talked about what they offer. The store includes what most would expect from a local food stop in addition to a full-service deli, walk-in beer case and natural food aisle.

Expressing interest and pride, Vaness said he was especially impressed with the grade of meats they offered at his own store. “We really go to the high end of the grade,” Vaness said. “Sterling Silver is some real good beef.” The Alturas store employs nearly 40 people and sometimes adds more workers depending on the season. North State Grocery also notes itself to be an employee-owned company, which means workers often have additional stock investment and retirement options. Vaness described this as an additional incentive to keep each of their stores as clean and efficient as possible. “We all own it, so we’re going to take care of it,” Vaness said.

MOVING AHEAD IN KLAMATH Several previous articles in the H&N outline the Holiday Market deal efforts, which included work through the Klamath County Commissioners and Klamath County Economic Development Association (KCEDA). In October 2017, county commissioners agreed to sign on with North State Grocery, which led to the purchase of the property on Eighth Street. The company paid $1.9 million at the time and have since put between $1.5 million and $2 million into bringing the building back up to speed. Holiday Market has also partnered with Sky Lakes Medical Center, which would run the pharmacy inside the store. Residents in and near downtown Klamath Falls have expressed the need for a new grocery store for some time since Haggen shuttered its doors in summer 2015. Vaness said he envisions the Klamath Falls location doing quite well since it could immediately reach people who live nearby. “I would say that it just leaves us wide open to being a nice, neighborhood grocer and just taking care of the customers,” Vaness said.

Slovenia delegation making Crater Lake ‘sister park’ visit By LEE JUILLERAT For the Herald and News July 22, 2018

Officials from Triglav National Park in Slovenia will learn about Crater Lake National Park, their “sister park,” and other regional parks during an 11-day visit that begins July 31.

observe the Sun Creek bull trout restoration project, take a sunset hike to the Watchman overlook, and spend a day on the lake learning about ongoing monitoring and research projects.

Delegates from Triglav and Slovenia’s Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning will spend several days at Crater Lake before also touring Lava Beds National Monument, the Klamath National Wildlife Refuges, Oregon Caves National Monument, Redwoods National Park, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. The group will also have lunch with Klamath Falls officials at the Favell Museum, jet boat down the Rogue River, visit Pacific Ocean beaches, kayak the Smith River and take cave tours at Lava Beds and Oregon Caves.


Along with touring park facilities, activities at Crater Lake include climbing Mount Scott, hiking to Boundary Springs to observe impacts from a recent forest fire,

“We are excited to be hosting our new friends from our sister park, Triglav National Park, in Slovenia and their associates from the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning,” said Crater Lake Superintendent Craig Ackerman. “This visit will allow their park managers to observe how we operate our national parks during periods of peak visitation. We will then move forward developing action plans wherein the best practices of agencies in both countries can be shared through plan- Crater Lake Superintendent Craig Ackerman, left, met with Triglav National ning and staff exchanges in order to Park officials last summer. benefit from each other’s experience.”

“ The Slovenians possess a deep and abiding passion for their park and an environmental conservation ethic that is second to none,” he said. “They have done a remarkable job of balancing visitor use management, environmental protection and preservation of the Alpine way of life within towns and villages scattered throughout their park. It will be a pleasure to share with them our attempts to do the same with the people and communities that make up Crater Lake’s neighborhood.”

Ackerman said the Triglav contingent will observe park operations for several days, then will move out into the Klamath and Rogue basins to meet with local officials, other national parks in southern Oregon and northern California, and other state and federal land management agencies along with some private businesses whose operations are tied directly to public lands.

Lake Bled is one of the attractions of Slovenia’s Triglav National Park.

Last summer, Ackerman and representatives of three park support groups — The Friends of Crater Lake, Crater Lake Natural History Association, and the Crater Lake Trust — visited Slovenia and toured Triglav to establish the Sister Park, or “twinning,” program. As part of establishing a true working partnership, John Duwe, Crater Lake’s education coordinator, later spent two weeks at Triglav. Triglav, Slovenia’s only national park, is checker-boarded over the country and includes pristine rivers, bucolic farmlands and a portion of the dramatic Julian Alps, including Mount Triglav, at 9,395 feet the country’s tallest peak. Ackerman said he gained an appreciation of how people in Slovenia respect their park and nature during the 2017 visit.

“While they may have to endure smoke from recent lightning ignited wild fires, this will be an opportunity to observe the closely coordinated fire suppression efforts in the Pacific Northwest,” Ackerman said. During the visit, the Slovenia delegation will spend two nights in Medford and four nights at the Running Y Ranch Resort in Klamath Falls before traveling to Ashland to tour the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Forensic Laboratory in Ashland and continue on to Oregon Caves, Redwoods National Park and Prairie Creek State Park before flying back to Slovenia on Aug. 10.

Much loved logging mural returns to downtown Klamath Falls By SEAN BASSINGER H&N Staff Reporter July 20, 2018

Many were sad when, like fresh-cut timber, a popular logging mural came tumbling down last year. But Chris Young, the artist who originally worked on the piece, is bringing it back to downtown Klamath Falls. Only this time, it’s on the side of the Leo’s Camera Shop building along the 400 block of Main Street. “The question was just where to put it,” Young said as he continued working Thursday. “We looked at a few different buildings.” The first mural appeared on the side of a building along the 1100 block of Main Street, which had to be torn down due to deterioration and an incoming park funded through Sky Lakes Medical Center. The reconstructed mural was made possible through $3,500 in Autzen Foundation grant funds obtained by the Klamath Falls Downtown Association and City Councilor Kendall Bell. Young said he hopes to have the mural completed within the next couple of weeks. AN ARTIST AT HEART Young, who recently retired as a teacher at Roosevelt Elementary, got his start as a muralist in 1996 after attending several meetings that called for local artists. He’s now well known throughout the town and has contributed to at least 10 murals seen across the Basin. Another popular work of Young’s is the Kingsley Field mural on the Veterans of Foreign Wars building, which is less than a block away from Leo’s Camera Shop. Young also helped with a restoration effort of the Bonanza horseback riding mural in 2016.

Chris Young, a retired Roosevelt Elementary teacher and local muralist, puts the finishing touches on one of the workers depicted in a logging mural being recreated along the 400 block of Main Street in Klamath Falls Thursday, July 19. The same mural was first seen along the 1100 block of Main Street before the building had to be removed.

The photo that inspired Young’s mural, which Klamath County Museum Manager Todd Kepple helped him select, depicts three loggers pausing during a day of hard work. Kepple and Young agreed the scene was an excellent representation of the area’s longtime logging legacy. “It’s just such an appropriate photo,” Kepple said Thursday. Young’s method for the restored logging mural began as quite the process: after getting permission to close off traffic along Fifth Street, he used a projector on top of his car and traced in the outline of the classic photo before he began painting. The most challenging aspects for Young include the finishing touches of the faces and getting the right touches of gray. “All I have is black and white and I have to mix all the shades,” Young said.

In an interview before the project started, Bell said she knew what the mural meant for the community. She wanted to do everything she could to bring the piece back to life. The original mural came about nearly eight years ago. It was commissioned by the KFDA, which funded part of the first costs, in addition to private donors. “They were quite sad, too, when it had to come down,” Bell told the Herald & News. “That’s when I felt compelled to figure out a way to have it redone somewhere else.” Young and Kepple said the building owner, Dale Cross, then agreed to having the mural placed at the 437 Main St. location. FUTURE PROJECTS Darin Rutledge, KFDA executive director, spoke briefly on downtown’s future mural plans. He and others at KFDA have expressed interest in some “interactive murals” downtown, which people could pose with in photos or post about on social media. “There are some great ideas flying around that we’re working on,” Rutledge said.

The KFDA is also responsible for maintaining plants, lights and other points of beautification in the downtown area. Klamath Falls City Council recently approved another $50,000, the same amount as last year, to help with such projects and efforts moving forward. Chris Young, a retired Roosevelt Elementary teacher and local muralist, first used a projector to trace outlines of the image that is now in progress as a logging mural being recreated along the 400 block of Main Street in Klamath Falls Thursday, July 19.

GETTING THE GRANT Young also credits the efforts of Bell, who first worked with the KFDA in establishing the $3,500 grant through the Autzen Foundation and making the project possible. Bell also said she attended grant workshops at the Ross Ragland Theater, which were offered through the Oregon Cultural Trust.

As for his own work, Young said he’s already planning his next project, in Malin, which would focus on the town’s own downtown.

More than anything, Young said he enjoyed the chance to help share community history. This was his main goal with the logging mural, which he’s glad to see returned. He wants people to think about their history and “the history of this place.” “It took a lot of years to give us what we have now,” Young said.
