The Economic Ripple Effect


Adding employees and two counties I did something my mother is guilty of frequently doing. As one of seven kids, it isn’t uncommon for my mom to go through a few of my siblings’ names before finally saying my name. Recently I called one of my employees another employee’s name before he teased, “just keep going through the list until you get to me.” With much excitement, I am proud to say it’s a full house at SEDCOR. Alex Paraskevas joined SEDCOR in February as the rural innovation catalyst and business retention and expansion manager for Polk County, and in April, we added Abisha Stone as the business retention and expansion manager for Yamhill County. They join Nick Harville, the business retention and expansion manager for Marion County; Tami Lundy, the office and special events manager; Business Oregon Regional Development Officer Dennie Houle; and Kristine Thomas, communications/marketing manager. Each team member brings a unique skill set, background and expertise. To work effectively and efficiently requires communication for us to achieve SEDCOR’s mission to leverage the strength of its public and private partnerships to successfully retain, grow and attract high-value traded-sector

jobs and capital investment in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties. With each team member, there is a ripple effect, with the ultimate goal of serving as advocates for the private and public partners and traded-sector businesses in the three counties. Look at a map and there are visible boundaries for cities and counties. However when it comes to the region’s workforce, there are no boundaries. We all know friends who live in one county and work in another. When a company looks at expanding or relocating, the first thing it considers is “Are there the employees to meet their needs within a 45-mile radius.” And if a company locates in one city, its ripple will impact nearby cities where its employees will look for places to live, go grocery shopping, get gas, buy a cup of coffee or go to a movie. Ask almost anyone who works in economic development and they will tell you it’s a team sport with the goal of bringing traded-sector jobs to the region so our friends, family members and neighbors can live in healthy communities where they can achieve their goals. And hopefully everyone has a boss who can keep his employees’ names straight.

The Economic Ripple Effect When a traded-sector company is looking for a new location, Independence Economic Development Director Shawn Irvine, Newberg Community Development Director Doug Rux and Woodburn Economic Development Director Jamie Johnk ideally want their city to be chosen. However, they recognize when Amazon invests in Salem, Organic Valley in McMinnville or Grocery Outlet in Dallas, it causes a ripple effect throughout Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties. “When a business locates in one town, it has a positive impact on nearby towns because we share the same workforce,” Johnk said. “People working at Amazon need places to live and we are building new homes in Woodburn. I take a holistic approach to economic development and that means serving the community on all levels from providing jobs to a place to live and shop.” While preferring a company locate in Woodburn, Johnk said if it’s not happening locally, it has to be regionally. “I believe the only way to serve my community is by collaborating and working with my regional partners to bring jobs to our region,” she added. Irvine explained smaller cities such as Independence don’t have the workforce, customer base or market reach, which makes it challenging for businesses to succeed. “This is why we have to operate and collaborate on a regional level. Independence alone may not have the workforce for a large employer, but Polk County as a whole does,” Irvine said. Irvine, Johnk and Rux shared in separate interviews by collaborating with regional economic development professionals, they can accomplish more which in turn benefits their individual cities. “This is easiest when working on issues that are larger than a single community like tourism, agriculture and innovation,” Irvine said. “We can all work these initiatives in our own way, but communicate and collaborate to make sure that our individual efforts add value to a larger regional effort or identity.” Rux said he is fortunate to have SEDCOR working with the cities and counties to foster economic prosperity in Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley. “SEDCOR focuses on recruiting and helping grow industrial and traded-sector jobs so cities can work on their local communities to bring other jobs,” he added. 4 Enterprise Summer 2018

A first for SEDCOR Working with its public and private partners to successfully retain, grown and attract high-value jobs and capital investments, SEDCOR has for the first time in its 36 year history a business retention and expansion (BR&E) manager in all three counties, SEDCOR President Chad Freeman said. “At SEDCOR, we understand what happens in one city or one county has an economic impact on surrounding cities and counties,” Freeman said. “For example, a city manager recently shared she is excited a nearby town is adding homes because that will positively impact her city.” For 11 years, Nick Harville has served as the BR&E manager for Marion County, while also assisting traded-sector businesses in Polk and Yamhill counties. Alex Paraskavas was hired as the Polk County BR&E manager and the Rural Innovation Catalyst manager in February, and Abisha Stone as the Yamhill County BR&E manager in April. Having a BR&E manager in each county benefits the tradedsector businesses and cities in numerous ways, Freeman said. “There have been instances at our staff meetings where Alex will say this is what’s needed at this business or city and Nick will share he knows a business that can help. Although one person is assigned to each county, there really are three people in each county because my staff works together to find solutions for businesses,” Freeman said. “Much of what we do is connecting people so they can be successful.” Beyond his staff, Freeman said he is fortunate to partner with public and private professionals in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties. “SEDCOR works collaboratively with the cities and counties we serve to achieve a shared goal – creating jobs and economic vitality,” Freeman said. “Abisha, Alex, Nick and myself along with our public and private partners all bring established skill sets, knowledge and expertise to assist tradedsector businesses reach their goals.”

Collaborating on infrastructure Sean O’Day is the executive director for the Mid-Willamette Valley Council of Governments, a regionally based government entity providing planning, coordination and technical assistance to local and tribal governments in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties. “In my view, the key to being successful in economic development is having the critical infrastructure in place to serve development,” O’Day said. “Without a qualified The Economic Ripple Effect


workforce, first-class transportation, facilities to move goods and people, affordable housing, clean drinking water and capacity within wastewater treatment facilitates, our region will not be able to compete for the quality jobs.” O’Day said in order for local governments to be successful in achieving their economic development goals, it requires working together collectively with other units of local government. “When we pull together as a region in the same direction, we can accomplish more together than we can individually,” O’Day said.

Shared goals In separate interviews, Marion County Commissioner Kevin Cameron, Polk County Commissioner Craig Pope and Yamhill County Commissioner Stan Primozich defined economic development as the actions taken to help improve the quality and standard of living for their citizens and communities. “Our job as county commissioners is to provide a quality of life for our citizens so they can have good paying jobs, afford a house and raise their family,” Primozich said. To achieve that goal, the three commissioners must work with their colleagues and public and private partners to address challenges happening in all three counties. Pope said the issues needing to be addressed include workforce, infrastructure, land use policies, affordable housing and transportation. “I believe we can do more to address key issues together than by working on them individually,” Primozich said. Primozich said anytime a job is created, there is a larger and broader economic impact or ripple. For example, Primozich said if an employee lives in Newberg but works in Dallas, he may purchase coffee in Amity, have lunch in Monmouth and purchase groceries on the way home from work in McMinnville. For traded-sector businesses to prosper, there must be a strong foundation, Pope said, adding the county plays a critical role in supporting its cities. “The county connects businesses to the resources they need,” Pope said. “If I can’t find a solution to a problem whether it’s regarding land use or utilities, I can pick up the phone, call a partner and ask for help. My job is connecting people to the tools they need to be successful.” While there are lines drawn on maps and signs welcoming people to each county, Cameron said he doesn’t see borders as being obstacles to prevent people from working together. “Our citizens cross borders everyday, whether they are city, county or state. We are a mobile society,” he said. www.sedcor.com

Whether it’s working with Freres Lumber Co. in Linn County to discuss timber supply or labor policies, writing a letter of support to the Oregon Transportation Commission for a facility in either Linn or Polk County or meeting with local farmers, Cameron said government officials must make sure the business environment sets up businesses to be competitive around the world. “The role SEDCOR plays is critical in helping support the recruitment and expansion of our existing businesses,” Cameron said. “Leadership at SEDCOR, James Labar at Governor’s Regional Solutions, and Marion County’s Economic Development Department are collaborating and working together to make a difference in improving the quality of life for all our citizens. We are blessed to have this great team here in Marion County and beyond!” For 12 years, McMinnville Economic Development Partnership has played a key role in numerous successful economic development projects including working with Jackson Family Wines, Organic Valley, Betty Lou’s and Ferrum Technology.

ECONOMIC RIPPLE EFFECT continued from page 5 passion for assisting and bringing traded-sector companies to McMinnville. She understands how each new addition to McMinnville whether it’s a boutique hotel, a bookstore or a restaurant not only has a ripple effect on McMinnville but also neighboring cities. “The cities in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties are not islands,” Christensen said. “We are all better off when there is a ripple effect.” Describing each city in Yamhill County as a quilt square – unique and beautiful on its own, one square cannot keep someone warm. When the squares are stitched together, it creates a blanket. “While each city has its unique qualities, what we have in common is we want to provide jobs for our citizens so they can live their dream life,” Christensen said. “We can only do that by working together.”

Marion County Economic Development Coordinator Tom Hogue said each county has a partnership with its cities. There are 20 cities in Marion County; six in Polk County and 10 in Yamhill County. Hogue shared counties provide an array of economic development assistance to their cities from financial to technical. “Because Marion County is the leading agricultural production and processing county in Oregon, we have an opportunity and responsibility to help that industry thrive and innovate,” Hogue said. “Part of the reason we invest is so we in turn have the resources to offer excellent public services. But if we can help ensure that grandkids can live and work near their grandparents, we’ve done something right.” Sharing it’s more than a polite thing to say, Hogue said he works with top-notch colleagues and regional partners. “The Mid-Valley region and Marion County in particular is blessed with skilled economic development professionals who work well together,” he said, adding he works extensively with SEDCOR, MVCOG, Governor’s Regional Solutions, Travel Salem, Business Oregon and many others. “To me it makes more than just good sense to partner regionally,” Hogue said. “It’s crucial. It’s common to say that the economy is regional so we should work regionally. In my experience challenges have to be tackled at the right scale where a solution is possible. So many of the current challenges

- roads, workforce, housing, water, for example - only have solutions at the regional scale. For smaller projects, it is still nice to share the work with great partners.”

City and county connections Located in both Yamhill and Polk counties, Willamina City Manager Kenna West loves the town’s strong sense of community. For any city in any county to be a vibrant and healthy community, there needs to be places for people to gather, live, shop, find services such as doctors, play and work, she shared. “To maintain a strong sense of community, we need to have businesses within or near our city to provide jobs for our people so that they don’t have to commute for hours, spending time on the road away from family and community,” West said. “Investing in economic development is an investment in the strength of our community and health of our small town.” West often meets with Sheridan City Manager Frank Sheridan and Amity City Administrator Justin Hogue to discuss how they can assist one another with economic development opportunities. “When possible, our cities join together as Willamina and Sheridan did when they created an Enterprise Zone,” West www.sedcor.com

said. “And we support each other when possible as Justin did when he nominated the census tract that contains Willamina and Sheridan as an Opportunity Zone. We can better serve our communities by working together and Willamina is certainly blessed to have such wonderful collaborative neighbors in Sheridan and Amity.” West said she has access to two sets of experts from both Yamhill and Polk counties as well as support from COG, SEDCOR and Regional Solutions. “We learn about economic development opportunities, grant opportunities, important issues on the horizon and more from both counties which allows Willamina to take advantage of many opportunities and prepare for any upcoming issues,” West said. Salem Economic Development Manager Annie Gorski said the ultimate goal of all three counties and their cities is to keep businesses healthy and growing. “Businesses in our community provide jobs, and businesses and employees contribute state income tax and local property tax, which contribute to services and infrastructure in our community,” Gorski said. “Through our urban renewal and economic development programs and projects, we focus funding on public infrastructure and targeted loans and grants, to keep businesses in our community healthy and growing, and to ensure our community remains an attractive place to live and work.” Through the City of Salem’s partnership with SEDCOR and participation in Team Oregon and the Oregon Economic Development Association, Gorski said the city works with a network of economic development professionals in the region and across the state. “We benefit when we all collaborate. Many of the issues that we face, including addressing affordable housing and workforce needs, require regional and statewide partners,” she said. Stayton City Manager Keith Campbell moved to Oregon from Kansas four years ago. He appreciates how counties and cities work together on economic development. “When we pool our resources, we are able to do more than we could do individually and we have a greater impact on our region,” Campbell said. Working on a project to straighten Golf Club Road, Campbell has turned to Hogue, Harville and others for advice and support. “Having connections makes it easier to solve problems,” he said. Campbell said he will lend his support when a neighboring town such as Sublimity or Aumsville requires it to land a project. “We are all in the same lake,” Campbell said. “We rise and fall together. If another town lands a company offering 250 jobs, those jobs will have an impact on our town because they need a place to live, shop and eat.”

INNOVATIONS IN FORWARD-THINKINGPROFILE When Bob and Kerrie Tucker started MAK Metals in 2004 and MAK Grills in 2009 in Dallas, they readily admit it wasn’t an ideal time due to the struggling national economy. “In 2004, we went to 10 auctions to buy equipment from companies similar to MAK Metals,” Bob said. Their decision to have their own business is based on their overwhelming support for one another and the foundation they have built on teamwork, respect, communication, hard work and more. “We work really well together and we are both in 100 percent,” Bob said. “We know what it takes to be successful and we are both driven. We make decisions together to do what’s best for our company.” In the first year at MAK Metals, Kerrie said it was herself, Bob and another employee in a 6,000 square foot shop. Today, they employee 45 people in a 55,000 square foot building, with room to grow. “When we step back and look at where we started and where we are now, it’s an amazing accomplishment,” she said. “We work with great people and we know we are not experts at everything but we know how to find people to partner with who will provide us with professional guidance.” A supplier to about 200 companies mostly in Oregon, MAK Metals is a high-quality, precision sheet metal manufacturer catering to the high tech and electronics industries. American-made, MAK Grills are award-winning wood pellet, smoker grills sold through the U.S. and Canada. Customers often drive to Dallas to pick up their grill, Bob shared. “MAK Metals builds the product and MAK Grills is just another customer for MAK Metals,” Bob said. Using the first initial of their sons’ names is how they created their company’s name - Kal Anderson, 30; Matt Tucker, 29 and Alex Tucker, 27, with the two oldest working for the company. Adding there has been a bit of luck in what they have accomplished along with hard work and dedication, Bob shared they have a long list of partners who have supported their businesses.

Kerrie and Bob Tucker credit their partnership for the growth and success of MAK Metals and MAK Grills. “SEDCOR helped us successfully navigate the steps we needed to get our businesses going by providing us with the knowledge, advice and introductions we needed,” Bob said. “We could have never done with we did without SEDCOR’s help.” Currently, Bob said, they make 1,000 MAK Grills a year, with room to grow. “When we started MAK Grills, it was our dream to control our own destiny and to have our own product to fill in the gaps of slow times in the metal shop,” Bob said. Firmly believing in crafting American made products, Kerrie said they use local suppliers to make the spices and sauces, the cover and more. Their advice for anyone considering starting their own business is choose the right partner and teammates. “When starting a business, you can’t dip your toe in the water,” Bob said. “You have to put everything into it to make it work.”

RED BARN HEMP When word got out what the Iverson family was growing, there was a bit of a shock in the Marion County farming community. Known for growing flowers at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm or wine grapes for Wooden Shoe Vineyards along with several other traditional crops, no one including the Iverson family ever imagined they would grow hemp. “We are an old-fashioned, conservative farm family,” Barb Iverson said, laughing. “We grow tradition crops. We had the same preconceived notions about hemp and thought it was something bad.” Her 35-year-old niece Christina Iverson added, “At least we can tell people that we had our grandpa’s blessing to do so,” Christina’s grandpa and Barb’s dad, Ross Iverson along with his wife Dorothy started their farm in 1950, growing row crops. In 2016, Ross was told his cancer was fatal and given a bag of medicines. Seeing her father bed-ridden and lethargic was painful for Barb and her family members. Anxious to do something so his last days could be spent with his friends and family, Barb said they spoke to a cousin who recommended CBD, a product derived from hemp. Much to their surprise, CBD was the ideal solution providing Ross with 42 great days before he passed. Seeing how hemp made a difference for their family inspired the family to grow the crop and start Red Barn Hemp, creating and selling hemp products including massage oils, muscle gels, capsules and dog biscuits.

Cousins Megan and Christina Iverson along with Emily Iverson are the third generation starting Red Barn Hemp. agricultural standpoint, determining the best practices from seed to harvest and processing to selling the product. “For us, it is just another plant,” Ken said. “We wouldn’t grow it if there wasn’t a market to sell it.” “For us, it’s about finding solutions to keep our farm sustainable,” Barb added, “whether the crop is tulips or hemp.” The greatest challenge they have faced is not growing the crop, Barb said, but instead educating people about the benefits of CBD. “We share how CBD is not addictive, it doesn’t have side effects and you don’t get a high from using it,” she said.

INNOVATIONS IN FORWARD-THINKINGPROFILE

The world’s leading manufacturer of engineered, custom-designed lumber products for commercial construction, RedBuilt’s history serves as its foundation. The plant manager for the Stayton RedBuilt facility, Brian Cowan said strong and mutually beneficial partnerships were essential in advancing the company along with its forward-thinking innovations. Key collaborations have been instrumental in designing the company’s engineered wood products, beginning with Art Troutner and Harold “Red” Thomas who first met in 1958. Troutner was an accomplished inventor, architect and engineer while Thomas was a traveling lumber salesman who had studied forestry at the University of Idaho. Respecting one another’s skill sets and ideas, they invented the lightweight, composite wood-and-steel open-web truss and pioneered the engineered wood products industry by developing laminated veneer lumber and engineered wood-joints. They started Tussdeck Corp., in 1960. Although the company merged and changed its name to Trus Joist Corp. in 1969, it continued to lead in finding innovative solutions. For example, when it became difficult to obtain high-quality old-growth lumber products, they invented laminated veneer lumber or LVL, a stronger, lighter weight and longer wood product for headers, beams, I-joist and concrete forms.

Stayton RedBuilt Plant Manager Brian Cowan customer service.” Cowan said its lumber products including open web trusses, RedLam Laminated Veneer Lumber and I-joists are designed to keep costs low and save time for the contractor installation.

In 2009, Atlas Holdings, a group of industry veterans that were former senior managers, acquired Trus Joist from Weyerhaeuser and named the company RedBuilt after Red Thomas. From 2009 to the present, Cowan said sales have increased 300 percent.

During a tour of the Stayton facility, Cowan pointed to the recent addition of a fourth press that will increase volume by more than 25 percent. RedBuilt’s products are sold throughout the U.S., Canada and Japan.

Skip ahead to the present and Cowan said RedBuilt continues to value its partnerships to provide its customers with the highest-quality products.

Cowan appreciates SEDCOR Business Retention and Expansion Manager Nick Harville for keeping him informed, connecting him with business and community leaders and lending assistance whenever needed.

“Every thing we make here is custom-made,” Cowan said. Cowan said its 130 associates are essential to the company’s success starting with their motto of “Safety, Quality and Service.” On a daily basis, 15 to 20 trucks leave the Stayton facility, Cowan said, adding the company serves commercial businesses and multi-family customers. “When we deliver materials to a job site, everything is labeled and ready to go,” Cowan said. “We even provide our customers with lumber and supplies we don’t produce because of our commitment to

Design, Build and Remodel with a Vision and a Plan

INNOVATIONS IN FORWARD-THINKING

Ferrum Technology CEO Rolf Hagelganz will eagerly share the materials used to handcraft its premium, American-made knives, including American stainless steel for the blades, and Oregon black walnut and maple for the handles. “The technology we use to craft the knives is a top secret and it is what makes the difference in the quality of our knives,” Hagelganz said. Along with Ferrum’s General Manager Marc Wade and President Robin Velez-Gomen, Hagelganz has reinvented how Ferrum knives are made, blending a modern forging technique and old-world craftsmanship. Wade explained the process Ferrum uses is unconventional from the traditional methods. “The technology we use allows us to compete in the market and create a higher quality knife at a reasonable price,” Hagelganz said. Located in McMinnville, Ferrum Technology recently relocated to a 21,000 square foot building, where shipping containers are used for offices and workspace and there will be a commercial kitchen for chefs to demonstrate how to use the knives. The company has a dozen employees and plans to hire additional staff. Learning the art of craftsmanship from their fathers as teenagers, both Hagelganz and Wade shared their fathers taught them the importance of taking risks and making mistakes as the best lesson in learning how to problem solve. With more than 35 years of experience in precision metal forging techniques, Hagelganz is a well-known pioneer of modern metallurgy and has multiple manufacturing patents. Working with his father, Hagelganz started World Class Technology in a barn with four employees to it now having more than 160 employees. Starting when he was 10 years old, Wade has been making knives for more than 35 years. Before starting at Ferrum, he worked with many of the biggest influencers and innovators in the premium

Ferrum Technology General Manager Marc Wade and CEO Rolf Hagelganz knife and cutlery industry. “Marc and I have a good partnership because we bring different strengths to the table and we respect one another’s expertise,” Hagelganz said. “Sometimes, we finish each other’s sentences because we know what the other is thinking and where the idea is going.” Both Hagelganz and Wade are thankful to McMinnville Economic Development Partnership Executive Director Jody Christensen for her assistance in helping them receive a $100,000 grant in 2016 from the Grow Yamhill County program. “Jody was awesome for getting us on the radar and helping us get the grant,” Hagelganz said. “She is a good resource for us.” Recently returning from the Housewares Show in Chicago, Hagelganz said they are gearing up to go from crafting 400 knives a week to 1,000 by July 1 to meet orders for companies including Sur la Table. Wired to look at things in an unconventional way and maybe ruffle a few feathers, Wade and Hagelganz said they are dedicated to making premium products, while enjoying their work. “What we can do at Ferrum Technology with the technology, ideas and partnerships we have is endless,” Hagelganz said.

INSIGHTS FROM THE CHEMEKETA CENTER FOR BUSINESS & INDUSTRY

Ask for help

Celia Núñez, Director Small Business Development Center Chemeketa Center for Business & Industry

Launching, growing and expanding a business is never an easy task. Business owners have a great deal of responsibility as they try to grow their business, while maintaining quality products and services. Given there are only so many hours in a day, it’s impossible for a business owner to tackle everything on their “to do list.” And from watching those who have tried, I have seen them lose motivation, become frustrated and find themselves spinning their wheels. The common cause of business owners not asking for help is simply not knowing who to ask or concerns about bothering someone. Let me be blunt – you can’t have a successful business if you don’t ask for help and create partnerships. As the director of the Chemeketa Small Business Development Center (SBDC), I am passionate about advocating for small businesses and letting them know there are many resources available to assist them. Asking for help is not only essential to your business’ success, it is crucial. Here are a few organizations eager to launch and/or grow your business: Chemeketa SBDC Whether you’re thinking of starting a business or already own one, the Chemeketa SBDC offers an abundance of resources, such as seminars and training, to help with financial assistance, human resources concerns, contracts, support on laws, regulations, and compliance.

If you are ready to work on your business and not just in it, then consider the Small Business Management (SBM) Program. For information visit the SBM Website http://sbm.chemeketa.edu. Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) If you are looking for a mentor to guide you as you start, run or change your business, contact the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE). SCORE volunteers are retired business owners, executives and individuals who held leadership positions in corporations.

Local Chambers of Commerce The U.S Chamber of Commerce acts as the world’s largest advocacy group for small and large businesses. Your local chamber of commerce is a valuable resource and if you are not already a member, I encourage you to become one. The networking itself is priceless. Strategic Economic Development Corporation If you are a traded-sector business in Marion, Polk or Yamhill counties, SEDCOR is a valuable ally, eager to assist your business. SEDCOR also serves as a conduit for connecting your business with other partners. Every prosperous business I have worked with has surrounded itself with partners who advocate for their success.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT NEWS

Marion and Yamhill counties celebrate 175 years of service On May 2, 1843, early settlers gathered on a bluff overlooking the Willamette River to determine whether to establish a formal government in Oregon. After two votes, with a 52 to 50 majority, these pioneers put in motion the beginnings of Oregon’s first provisional government. Two months later on July 5, 1843, the Organic Laws of Oregon were formally adopted and the Oregon Country was divided into four districts including Tuality, Yamhill, Clackamas, and Champooick, which was later renamed Champoeg and finally designated as Marion County in 1849. In the intervening 175 years, both Marion and Yamhill counties have played an integral role in Oregon’s history. Oregonians and visitors will have opportunities to celebrate Yamhill and Marion counties’ milestones this summer. Yamhill County invites community members to attend Yamhill County’s 175th Anniversary Celebration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at the Yamhill Valley Heritage Center, 11275 SW Durham Lane in McMinnville. Admission is free and the event will include short lectures from historians, exhibits featuring antique farm and logging equipment, a covered wagon from the Oregon Trail, and many fascinating displays on the last 175 years in Yamhill County. Visitors to the pioneer village will be treated

to live demonstrations in the blacksmith shop and sawmill, and there will be free root beer floats for everyone! For more information, visit www.yamhillcountyhistory.org/175years. On May 2, 2018, 175 years after the historic vote a Champoeg, Marion County kicked off its “175 Years of Service” celebration for the remainder of 2018. There will be special festivities as part of the annual Marion County Fair, a self-guided tour of Marion County, 175 things to do in Marion County, and more. Visit www.co.marion.or.us for information about upcoming “175” events and activities.

Second chance, economic win

Oregon businesses seek employees, and the 400 people released every month from Oregon’s prisons require jobs. While matching the employers with the employees seems straightforward, the truth is many businesses have preconceived notions about hiring a former convict. Eager to debunk the stereotypes and mitigate the challenges of hiring a former convict, The Oregon Second Chance Tour is a series of workshops designed to engage Oregon employers about Second Chance Employment – the successful employment of people with criminal records. “We want to bring employers and people together to get a second chance,” Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said. “We want to open the doors of opportunity for more Oregonians.”

“His risk changed my life for the better,” he said. “I have met a lot of people who deserve the same opportunity. They need employers to give them a chance to prove themselves.” Londin said his decision to hire second chance employees stemmed from needing employees. He’s thankful to Marion County Commissioner Kevin Cameron and Marion County Sheriffs Office, Parole Division Manager Deb Girad for guiding in the process of hiring second chance employees.

The day-long conference included second chance employees sharing their stories; information for employers on how to work with second chance employees; and employers sharing their experience hiring second chance employees. Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation Executive Director Genevieve Martin said one in three employees at Dave’s has a criminal background. “There are many companies that have success hiring second chance employees,” Martin said. Ten years ago, now General Manager Donnie McLaughlin started cleaning toilets and washing floors at ABC Window Cleaners & Building Maintenance. In 2020, he plans to purchase the company from President Todd Londin. Having a former drug conviction along with making some bad choices, McLaughlin, 32, said doesn’t make him a bad person. He’s beyond grateful to Londin for hiring him.

“Having people who have my back made it possible to hire dedicated employees,” Londin said. Andre, who now works for Bridgetown Natural Foods, said it meant the world to him to have a job at Dave’s Killer Bread. “Once I was released, I knew I didn’t want to go back,” he said. “Having a job gave me an opportunity to be successful and prove to myself that I could be the person I knew I could be.” Marty Nash of Bridgetown Natural Foods said businesses have a responsibility and opportunity to bring second chance employees into their fold and to mentor them to be successful members of society. “If you are a business sitting on the fence about hiring a second chance employee, I advise you to find out who the person is,” Nash said. “As an employer, you should be hiring the best person for the job.” Visit www.secondchancetour.com to learn more.

Chemeketa Community College and its partners received funding to introduce regional high school students to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. The $75,000 grant was awarded to the South Metro-Salem STEM partnership, a collaboration of school districts, businesses and higher education focused on increasing STEM opportunities for students. Partners for the grant are the Business Education Compact, Chemeketa, Oregon MESA and the Willamette Education Service District.

Stayton Receives Three Awards The City of Stayton received two awards from the Oregon Association of Water Utilities, and a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). At the Oregon Association of Water Utilities 40th annual Technical Management Conference, Stayton’s Streets, Water and

Parks Supervisor Tom Etzel was chosen as the Oregon Association of Water Utilities Operator of the Year. And for the second year in a row, the City of Stayton was named as the Best Tasting Surface Water in Oregon. Etzel has dedicated 29 years of service to Stayton’s Public Works Department, specifically to water treatment. “He works tirelessly to educate himself on the latest rules and requirements to keep our drinking water safe and flowing to the community,” Stayton City Manager Keith Campbell said. To determine who receives the Best Tasting Surface Water award, an unbiased panel of three judges blind taste tested drinking water from around Oregon, judging it on clarity, bouquet and taste. “The back-to-back award shows the hard work and dedication of our public works staff and their commitment to providing our community the best water in the state of Oregon,” Campbell said.

Founded in 1978 in Salem by three partners, Creative Company marks 40 years of business in 2018. In 1977, two companies—Larsen & Hawkes, a graphic design firm formed by Jennifer Larsen and Eve Hawkes; and Young Communications, an ad agency founded by Dez Young—began collaborating on projects. The company was incorporated in January of 1978 as a full-service advertising agency. By 1983, Hawkes and Young had left to pursue different careers. Jennifer Larsen became president and the company expanded to serve more clients in manufacturing, food products and professional services.

Stayton’s Public Works department includes Tom Etzel, Bob Zeller, Michael Bradley, Kendall Smith, Mark Flande, Lance Ludwick, Lisa Meyer and Michael Schmidt.

In 1988, Creative Company moved to South Salem to expand again. Local and regional clients including NORPAC, SmokeCraft and Cherriots hired Creative Company for identity development, advertising, packaging design, print collateral, and new product launches.

For a second year in a row, the City of Stayton was awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the GFOA. This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting.

In early 2001, Creative Company relocated to McMinnville. The company is recognized as a leader from identity design to complete marketing and branding programs.

“This award is a reflection of the values and expectations of the City of Stayton Governing Body,” Campbell said. “We may not be a large city, but our community should expect for us to be a benchmark for quality, transparency and best practices.”

In 2016, the company scaled back to focus on marketing strategy and messaging.

Campbell said the award is due to the work of Financial Consultant Andy Parks and the city’s management team of Police Chief Rich Sebens and Lt. Charlie Button, Public Works Director Lance Ludwick, Planner Dan Fleishman, Library Director Janna Moser, Deputy City Recorder Alissa Angelo, and Associate Accountant Cindy Chauran.

Larsen Morrow is now a part-time adviser for the Small Business Development Center at Chemeketa’s Center for Business and Industry, and leads workshops on marketing and branding. “Although four decades of changes have impacted the tools and practices of our business, the central principles of marketing remain the same,” Larsen Morrow said. “Good design that stands out; understanding who your audiences are and how they choose; clear messaging that communicates value and “what’s in it for me?” and connecting all marketing through branding, whether online or offline, still deliver response.”

Dean Craig’s journey to Willamette Workforce Partnership began more than 16 years ago when he was recruited from his job as operations manager for a manufacturing company to work for a

Philanthropy local staffing agency where he spent more than 15 years as its regional manager. Shortly after starting his new job, Craig was introduced to workforce development when a friend “tricked” him into attending a youth council meeting, and less than a year later he was a board member and chair of that council. Being a board member for nearly 14 years and past board chair, coupled with his years of experience helping customers of his staffing agency with workforce issues makes him uniquely qualified to become Willamette Workforce Partnership’s Director of Business Services. Dean’s message to those he works with is one he learned from his father. “Work hard to be the best at whatever you do; do it with the integrity as if your grandmother was watching and yearn to learn and never stop, but do so with discernment,” he shared. Willamette Workforce Partnership Executive Director Kim Parker-Llerenas is excited to have Craig on the team. “His experience and passion are evident. He is ready to engage the employers in our community in a meaningful, relevant way so we can help make an impact on the challenges employers are facing with their workforce needs,” she said.

Salem Health Foundation’s board of directors approved $270,000 in funding for medical respite in a new affordable housing facility in Salem. At his State of the City address in March, Salem Mayor Chuck Bennett announced an innovative partnership between City of Salem, Salem Housing Authority, Salem Health and Salem Health Foundation. The partnership will provide medical respite in SHA’s newly-acquired housing property on Fisher Road, which will have 29 units of single room occupancy affordable housing. Medical respite is a short-term, specialized program focused on homeless persons who have a medical injury/illness and may also have mental illness or substance abuse issues. Some homeless individuals aren’t sick enough to stay in the hospital, but are too sick to recover on the streets. Respite care bridges the gap between acute medical services currently provided in hospitals/emergency rooms, homeless shelters and more permanent housing options. “This investment in our community will help us improve care to one of our most vulnerable populations,” Salem Health Foundation Board Chair Kathy

Philanthropy Continued Gordon said. “It is wonderful to see the coordinated efforts of so many agencies in making this project a success.”

Silverton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Stacy Palmer was thrilled to award $15,000 in grants to 19 nonprofit organizations in Mt. Angel and Silverton. What makes Palmer even more proud is how the grants honor a priceless tradition – giving back to the community. “These grants are attributed to the legacy of Judy Schmidt,” Palmer said. “She would be so happy to see her legacy of volunteering and giving back to her community continued through the work of her friends, family and community members.” An advocate for many nonprofit organizations in Silverton and the former director of volunteer and community services for Legacy Silverton Health, Judy Schmidt passed on Oct. 1, 2014. To honor her legacy of being an enthusiastic volunteer for nonprofits and ambassador of Silverton, her friends and family agreed to host “Judy’s Party – A Party with a Purpose.” The event is a fundraiser for the Silverton Chamber of Commerce and local nonprofit organizations. “What I love about Judy’s Party is seeing people join together and have fun while

working for the common purpose of giving back and making a difference in our community,” Palmer said.

Volcanoes’ co-owner Lisa Walker said the program’s goal is to strengthen the community by spotlighting local need.

From church groups to youth organizations and historical and art groups to schools, Palmer said the grants assisted every corner of the community.

“We are providing local businesses the opportunity to partner in these efforts and have designed a comprehensive marketing package as an incentive for local businesses that participate, including signage on the Volcanoes Stadium outfield wall, radio exposure, print advertisement in the Volcanoes’ Game Day Program and season tickets,” Walker said.

“We gave grants to help third-graders learn how to swim to grants helping buy gifts for children at Christmas,” she said. “We gave grants for our community dinners and for the fire district.” Palmer invites everyone to the fourth annual Judy’s Part beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.

The Salem-Keizer Volcanoes have launched a program to help local nonprofits. The CARE package will bring exposure to the nonprofits’ mission and goals and includes a fundraising component. The Volcanoes are working with 11 local nonprofits for the 2018 season: Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America; Salem Health Cancer Institute; Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity; Salem Free Clinic; McNary Youth Sports; Serving our Veterans at Home; C.A.S.A.; Salem-Keizer Education Foundation; Keizer Little League; A.C. Gilbert House; and Union Gospel Mission.

If your business would like to learn more about the project and assist one of these local nonprofits, please contact Lisa Walker at 503-428-5256, or e-mail probaseball97@gmail.com.

Products, Programs & Projects Continued Besides being an entertaining evening to connect community members and visitors, Dayton Friday Nights serves as a fundraiser for The Dayton Community Development Association and strengthens the local economy by supporting downtown businesses. Hosted primarily by The DCDA, Dayton’s all-volunteer downtown revitalization nonprofit organization, volunteers logged 531 hours last year with financial support for the event totaling $7,500 from the city council, individuals and local businesses. In 2017, the event’s estimated local impact was $82,836. To learn more, visit www.daytonoregon.org/fridaynights/

A Salem-based residential and commercial garbage, recycling and junk removal company, Pacific Sanitation turned to Earthlight Technologies to free them of its monthly utility costs by upgrading all lighting to LED as well as offset the remainder of its bill with a properly-sized solar system. Pacific Sanitation’s project costs were minimized by a tax credit, depreciation and cash rebate, which in turn shortened the return on investment. “Installing a solar system at Pacific Sanitation furthered our mission to be green and showcased our commitment to Marion County’s EarthWISE certification program,” Operations Manager Carson Kuenzi said.

Earthlight provides a turnkey package for customers including all paperwork for rebates, system designing, engineering and installation from start to finish. To learn more, visit www.earthlightech.com.

define what we do in the community,” WWP Executive Director Kim ParkerLlerenas said. “It’s hard enough to define and describe the role and value of a workforce development board, so having a name that clearly says ‘we support workforce’ was critical,” Parker-Llerenas said. This is not the first change in branding for the organization, once known as Enterprise for Employment and Education, Job Growers, and most recently, Incite. Parker-Llerenas said WWP’s board of directors and staff members are committed and happy to announce they’ve found a relevant, descriptive name that has earned everyone’s support. A nonprofit, Willamette Workforce Partnership’s mission is to work with employers in meeting their workforce needs. This is accomplished by funding training for a company’s current staff; assisting in recruiting new staff; paying for on-the-job training for employees; identifying industry trends and supporting the workforce and economic implications; and serving as a resource of information and data on workforce related issues. The majority of funding is from the federal and state government. For information on what MWP can do for your business, contact Kim ParkerLlerenas at kparker-llerenas@willwp.org.
