Starting over

Silverton renews search for city hall, police department site

By James Day

and understand our acquisition costs and time frame, it is unknown whether we will need to phase the project.”

It’s back to the drawing board in the lengthy search for the city of Silverton to find a location for a new city hall and police department building. The City Council, as part of the consent agenda at its April 3 meeting, approved a resolution terminating its contract to purchase land from Stumptown Properties that would have been used for the municipal complex. The 3.1-acre site near the corner of C and North Water streets, had emerged as the top candidate in the fall of 2015 after councilors eliminated a green field site on Westfield Street near the Silverton Senior Center and the Potter Automotive site at First and Lewis streets. Ultimately, Silverton City Manager Christy Wurster said, it was the railway line adjacent to the Stumptown site, former location of the Square Deal Lumber yard, that killed the deal.

Plans for a civic campus on North Water Street have been scrapped.

“The city has received information that the Union Pacific and Willamette Valley Railway do not have plans to abandon the railway and it will likely be used again,” Wurster said. “This is a material change in the conditions of the property.” Wurster said that city staff will evaluate potential alternative sites, which includes those previously considered. No timetable was available on when that evaluation process will conclude or when the issue will come back to the council. A key driver of the plan to replace the

current complex, which was built in 1925, is the fact that the current police station does not meet federal and state requirements and is not built to withstand an earthquake. Earlier council discussions of the replacement project indicated a possible phased approach that would tackle the police building first and city hall later. Wurster, who replaced the retiring Bob Willoughby in January, said that that still might be the approach but said “until we have a final site selected and/or purchased

Councilors also have expressed a strong preference for not going to the voters with a bond measure to pay for the project, citing a 2012 survey of residents that indicated “pretty clear” opposition to that approach. During the 2015 discussions of the project Willoughby said that “if we can do it by living within our means, that ultimately is the goal.” No cost estimates are available at this time, and no formal design has been established. Earlier discussions indicated that approximately 30,000 square feet might be needed for the building. Councilors have discussed splitting the facilities between sites, an approach that Woodburn has taken, although there would efficiencies with the use of space and parking in a combined complex.

Contested seats By Steve Ritchie With a host of significant financial, facility and educational challenges looming for Silver Falls School District, the May school board election has become something of a referendum on the district’s leadership and direction. The election pits three incumbent school board members against four challengers in three zones. School board elections in Silverton are organized around geographical zones. Each of the seven members on the school district board must live within the zone they represent; however, all voters in the district get the opportunity to vote for candidates in each zone. Three seats are up for election this year. The other four seats will be contested in 2019. All board members are elected to four-year terms. Ballots were mailed to registered voters beginning April 26, and must be returned to the Marion County Clerk’s office by Tuesday, May 16. Here is a profile of candidates in each of the races:

ZONE 2 Ervin Stadeli Ervin Stadeli has served on the Silver Falls School Board for the eight years. He says his motivation for serving is a desire to help kids. “So many young kids do not have structure in their lives so we need to make the school environment the best we can for them so they turn out to have productive lives,” Stadeli said. A superintendent for K&E Excavation, Stadeli believes the Silver Falls School District is a “coveted district.” His four children have gone through district schools. He is proud of the equality of educational opportunities in both the district’s town and country schools, adding that he wants to “get technology” to all the schools. One of the issues Stadeli hopes to continue to address as a board member is the unfunded mandates from the state. Stadeli says that his experience as a farmer and businessman can help him address these mandates by thinking creatively. Asked for an example, Stadeli points to a new requirement to teach PE in K-8 schools. “They’re instructing us that we have to

Silver Falls incumbents face challengers in board race

have PE, and it can’t be a parent or a volunteer to teach it... we have to follow the guidelines and mandates.” Stadeli says the toughest decision the board has made during his tenure was to close Eugene Field School. He supported closing the K-3 school, and said the decision was based on facts, not emotions.

Michele Stone-Finicle A public school teacher for 12 years, Michele Stone-Finicle believes the school board is “a natural fit” for her skill set. She says her past experiences in education gave her the opportunity to teach a variety of age groups in diverse settings. She gained an understanding of the “creative ways in which schools must adapt and improve to meet the needs of the 21st century student.” Stone-Finicle now is the development director for North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization which builds homes with and for low-income families. She sees many parallels between her work for Habitat and her possible board service. “My job is to raise vital funds (for Habitat) in a cost-effective manner... through state-level advocacy, fundraising campaigns and events, educational outreach, and building partnerships in the community. As budget limitations continue to present a challenge (for the district), my skill set will be directly applicable to the school board’s role in managing the district’s finances.” The mother of a first-grade student at Mark Twain, Stone-Finicle said her priorities as a board member would include “finding resources beyond the current budget to support vital programs, (improving) school safety and safe walking and biking routes to and from school, and encouraging active and open community engagement in our schools.” She wants to enhance student success with career and vocational education, and support programs like AVID that reduce dropout rates.

Zone 4 Jennifer Traeger “Education is my calling,” Jennifer Traeger says. “I think the board would

benefit from adding the perspective of an educator with a broad range of experience.” Her experience includes 20 years as a teacher in the Woodburn School District, working with families and children in preschool, elementary and high school settings. She and husband Matt have two children in the Silver Falls District, a kindergartner and a sixth-grader. Traeger has a “great sense of responsibility for serving our children. It’s a big job, so we have to allocate our limited resources in a manner which will give us the best return for our investment.” Traeger has coordinated Talented & Gifted programs, as well as English Language Proficiency programs. She also helped found the Community Roots Charter School in the Silver Falls District, and was the co-owner of the now-closed Bluebird Montessori Preschool, a small, privately funded program in Silverton. Traeger said her over-arching priority as a board member would be to help students succeed and graduate. Her work in Woodburn, a high-poverty district with a very diverse student population, has, she said, given her insight into the “power of strategic planning, data-driven decisionmaking, professional development and effective communication. “The Silver Falls School District has a 100 percent graduation rate goal. I work with students every day and see the challenges they face. In order to continue to increase the graduation rate, the system will need to address complex issues that can be barriers to graduation.”

James Newkirk James Newkirk doesn’t mince words when asked what is motivating him to run for election to a school board position in the Silver Falls District. “I think some folks have been on the school board too long,” Newkirk said. “They need fresh ideas. And too much is going on behind closed doors – more transparency is needed.” Newkirk also believes the board needs more expertise in the area of maintaining the district’s buildings. After serving in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years, Newkirk went to work for the district in a maintenance and custodial position. His 23 years in the school district offered

him the opportunity to do custodial and summer maintenance work in “just about every building in the Silver Falls School District.” Newkirk, who retired from the school district in 2015, says the buildings in the district “need some tender loving care.” Newkirk also has experience working for Ogden Martin, which operates the garbage burning plant in Brooks, and in construction. During his Air Force career, he specialized in electrical power production and satellite control. Running against an incumbent who has served on the school board for 20 years, Newkirk says it is time for a change. “I think there ought to be term limits. 12 years should be enough.”

Wally Lierman Wally Lierman is the current chair of the school board and has served on the board for 20 years. He said he is running for re-election because he has granddaughters who will be starting school soon, and he “wants the district to be even better for them than it was for my children.” Lierman believes Silver Falls is a “good district” but has room for improvement. Among the major accomplishments during his time on the board, he cites the sound financial condition and relatively low administrative costs of the district. He also lists “very favorable classroom sizes, which are lower than the state average,” and school choice in the district. With a background in the technology field, Lierman points to his experience “managing large budgets, making and implementing policy, managing people, managing complex projects and identifying and correcting problems.” Lierman now works primarily in agriculture, but still has “a connection to the high tech world.” Among his list of current and future issues to be addressed, Lierman says the board needs to continue to solve budgetary issues, maintain the district’s aging buildings, and find a principal for the high school who is “a good leader and very relational.” He believes it will be important to make decisions between “competing priorities of meeting government mandates, enrichment programs, and meeting our educational needs.”

Zone 5 Shelly Nealon Shelly Nealon thinks the school district is missing an opportunity “by not having more input from our teachers and students to create learning environments that work for them.” If elected, she pledges to visit all the district schools and to be the “kind of board member where anyone can feel comfortable approaching me not only with their concerns about the district but about their successes as well.” Nealon says she saw in the school board an opportunity where her expertise as an educator could make a difference for district students, parents and employees The co-owner of a local small business, Nealon Medical Properties, Nealon also has been a classroom teacher and a home-school teacher, as well as an active community volunteer for a number of organizations and civic projects in Silverton. Like several other candidates, Nealon is concerned about the school district’s potential budget shortfall of over $1 million if the budget proposal of the governor is adopted by the legislature. Her other concerns include overcrowding in classrooms and schools, and a new school voucher plan (HR 610) being pushed in Congress by three conservative Republicans. “I also want to state that I will always be driven and inspired by the dedication of our principals, teachers and staff who turn out an excellent education every day for our children,” Nealon said.

Aaron Koch Aaron Koch has completed a partial term on the Silver Falls School Board, having served for two years. He was elected to an open position when board member Tim Roth moved out of the zone. “It all comes back to our kids,” Koch said. “I have three kids in the district... it’s about putting our kids first. And that’s what should be the motivation for our decisions.” State funding and budgetary issues top Koch’s priority list. He agrees with other candidates that the proposed state funding level for education is woefully inadequate. Koch also supports developing a longterm facilities plan for the district that would address both short and long term needs of in-town and outlying schools, saying, “We have to get together as a board and really plan to meet these needs.” A regional sales manager for Johnson & Johnson, Koch believes his personal communication style is a positive. “I have a very open, honest, ethical listening approach... I listen respectfully to all the views being expressed by other board members and the public, understanding the value of our collective wisdom process. “There are so many good things in this district,” Koch said. “We can always do better but we have a lot of good things going for us.”

The air will be filled with music at the eighth annual Mid-Willamette Adult Band Festival on Saturday, April 29, in the Silverton High School Auditorium. The Silverton-based Marion County Citizen’s Band will join three other participating bands: Keizer Community Band, Portland Metro Community Band and Clackamas Community Band. Starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m., the free event promises a feast for the ears – and perhaps even a bit of nostalgia. The public is welcome to attend. Band members recapture the fun and energy of performing in a high school band. Any adult can join. For some, going through their closets and dusting off their musical instrument is all it takes to reignite an interest. All that is required is for potential members to reach a certain level of proficiency. Band Director Dale Sroufe, 68, has played in the band since moving to Silverton with his wife, Wendy, in 1990. He enjoyed it so much over the years, he became the director in 2005. He plays the saxophone and bassoon. Sroufe began his undergraduate work in music education. He taught for two years in the Gresham area, then he and his wife

moved to Alaska. During their 20-year stay there, he taught elementary school band. The Sroufes then moved back to Oregon, settling in Silverton. “Even though we are called the Marion County Citizen’s Band we have people who come from Oregon City, Beaverton, even up towards the Damascus/Gresham area,” Sroufe said. “We play standard band repertoire of arrangements by composers who have been around for years, and at a level that would be upper high school/college age.” Sroufe said the band plays many times a year at various venues, never charging a fee. However, at times they do perform at places that provide them with a stipend “that goes into a fund to buy music and instruments that we need.”        Each band will have a 40-minute time slot to perform their musical selections. Donated gift certificates from local businesses will be included in door prize drawings – which will be held during band breaks. “At the end of the day, we have each band director choose one piece of music and we do a mass band. Everybody that can stay until the end of the day gets squeezed up on stage. We sometimes have over 100 musicians,” Sroufe said.

Grandmother, seamstress takes up African mission

By Nancy Jennings

skills is one of her main goals. And, yes, she will share her sewing talents, too. “I know sewing has helped me,” she said.

A passion for teaching has always been a part of Judy Stokes’s life purpose. Answering a phone call in January, set the course in motion for her second missionary trip to Africa. She departed on April 2 for a one-year position facilitated through the Rafiki Foundation.

“As a divorced mother, I can relate to the challenges of being a woman on her own.” Stokes will also work with orphaned children – and help them understand that it’s OK to have choices. Most children are quick to choose a favorite toy or item. Stokes found out firsthand this wasn’t the case while teaching orphaned students art classes in Nigeria during her first missionary trip.

The foundation’s mission is to “help Africans know God and raise their standard of living with excellence and integrity.” Rafiki means “friend” in Swahili. Since moving to Silverton from Grass Valley, Calif., in November 2014, Stokes, 68, had been dividing her time between running her own business and being a doting live-in grandmother to two young girls. Living with her daughter and sonin-law, she loved the daily interaction. Another married daughter and two more grandchildren live in Portland. Specializing in bridal dress alterations, her at-home “Judy Stokes Sewing & Design,” had been successful since opening two years ago. She brought 23 years of

While setting out various colored chalks and crayons, she asked the children to pick out their favorite colors. They asked what she meant by “favorite.” They told her they liked them all. “I began to understand why the word ‘favorite’ wasn’t familiar to them.

The Forum Experienced leadership crucial now As a mother of four children all currently thriving in the Silver Falls School District, the upcoming school board elections has caught my attention this year more than in the past. I have been confident in the leaders that have sat on the school board. My family and I share a similar value system with them and have been comfortable voicing concerns as needed. This year, the stakes are high. Several key board members have reached the end of their terms and are seeking re-election. Each seat is facing an opponent that is dramatically different from their predecessor. A drastic change in our school board could be a disaster for our children. Mr. Wally Lierman has been with Silver Falls School District literally since the beginning.  He has demonstrated commitment, character

and compassion over his 22 years of services. Regardless of one’s political views, education is metamorphosing at the national level. This dramatic change could spell disaster for a small community such as Silver Falls or could propel us to a whole new level of excellence. It is essential to have grounded, experienced, wise, leaders guiding the direction that will affect our children and our future. Mr.  Lierman has proven time and time again that he can be trusted to make difficult decisions, listen to concerns of community members and lead Silver Falls School District through the challenges that are sure to come.  Please vote Mr.  Wally Lierman for Silver Falls School Board 2017.   Katie Gardner Resident, Silver Falls School District

This endorsement is a first As a recently retired public school educator, I am writing my first letter of endorsement for a school board member. I spent 25 years serving the students, parents, and community members of Silverton as a teacher, coach, building Principal and Human Resources Director. I was very fortunate in having students who were motivated, parents who were supportive, a superintendent who was recognized by the state of Oregon as the best in the state, and a school board that made decisions based on what was best for kids and their academic success. Teachers have come and gone during the past 20 years; however, one constant

has been board member, Wally Lierman. Mr. Lierman has served our district for over 20 years.  During that time I have observed Mr. Lierman consistently demonstrate unwavering integrity and a willingness to make tough decisions that were essential for the success of our students. I urge you to cast your vote for Wally Lierman.  Together we can retain his experience and integrity on our school board.  Mr. Lierman, I make this commitment. You serve another 20 years, and I’ll write another letter. Dale Koger Silverton

A plea to fellow Americans To all it may concern: Yes, you may have heard it before, it may be, to some, just words. But I ask you to stop and listen, for I have a right to say it. To the protesters all over this country: I ask you to show compassion without destruction, words without yelling. Assert your right to a peaceful gathering, but use good judgment. Say the pledge of allegiance instead of burning our flag. This is America. It is your flag, too. To all Americans today: You are fathers,

Our Town Life

sons and husbands. You are mothers, daughters and wives. I am asking you to set an example for your children, for they are the next generation. Your actions will determine how they will carry on. Teach them to use their words, not their hands. Do not raise them to be afraid. Listen to them.

OSAA spells change

Big overhaul proposed for classification system

Most adjustments that the Oregon School Activities Association makes in its quadrennial classification and districting work tend to be minor. The body made a big leap forward for the 2006-7 school year by expanding from four classes to six. Schools had competed in a four-class system since 1974. And it’s looking like there will be a bit of an earthquake this time, too, with the OSAA committee leaning toward a five-class system for the four-year cycle beginning in the fall of 2018. Nothing is etched in stone yet, but Silverton likely would wind up in Class 4A in a seven-team Capital Conference that includes Cascade, Molalla, North Salem, Stayton, Wilsonville and Woodburn. Among those schools only Woodburn is currently grouped with Silverton in the Mid-Willamette Conference. Newport and Sweet Home would replace Silverton and Woodburn in the MWC, which would retain Central, Corvallis, Crescent Valley, Dallas, Lebanon and South Albany. Jodi Drescher, assistant principal at Silverton, prefers the six-class system and also dislikes the potential conference grouping for the Foxes. “I still believe the six-class system is the best for all schools – especially from the competitive balance aspect,” Drescher said. “Silverton would fare well in the

4A of this system. The important point, however, is whether this is good for ‘all kids.’ I don’t believe so. To put Silverton, Wilsonville and North Salem in a league with those much smaller schools creates a skewed competitive balance.” Adjusted enrollment in the new league would range from 1,404 for North Salem, 1,256 for Woodburn, 1,149 for Silverton and 1,077 for Wilsonville at the high end, with Cascade (683), Molalla (662) and Stayton (608) on the low end. North Salem has been granted a request to “play down” a level, but Drescher said that “in a five-class system I am convinced North Salem will be at the top of the 4A level in a very short time.” Kennedy, meanwhile, would remain in Class 2A, but the Tri-River Conference is projected to grow a bit, both in terms of the number of schools – and the travel involved. The core Tri-River group of Central Linn, East Linn Christian, Kennedy, Regis and Santiam would be augmented by Crow, Culver, Jefferson, Monroe and Oakridge, with the Crow, Culver and Oakridge additions imposing more travel

Kaylin Cantu


Cantu, a junior, finished second in the 1,500 and fifth in the 800 a year ago. In all, the Trojans return athletes who scored 49.5 points a year ago.

The committee meets again at 9 a.m. May 22 at the OSAA office in Wilsonville, with the final decision not due until fall. Public testimony is welcome at all meetings and interested parties can email comments and suggestions to Brad Garrett, OSAA assistant executive director, at Track and field update: Kennedy returns a pair of high-scoring athletes to the state meet, Bishop Mitchell and Kaylin Cantu. Mitchell, who will play football next fall at Portland State University, took second in the long jump, 200 meters and pole vault and ran the anchor leg on the 4x100 relay squad that also finished second in the Class 2A meet.

Kennedy coach Steve Ritchie noted that, as always, his squad will face stiff competition in the Tri-River Conference. The Regis and East Linn Christian boys finished one-two at state a year ago, while the East Linn Christian girls took second. Ritchie thinks his team will be in the hunt for a boys title, but that the East Linn girls are virtually unbeatable.

both team races a year ago at the MidWillamette Conference district meet and has a good crop of returnees with Class 5A state meet experience. Coleton Myers is back to defend his state high jump title. Brock Rogers, who took second in the 110 hurdles and seventh in the 300 hurdles, also is a threat in the 100 meters. Ian Rush is coming off a seventhplace finish at state last year. Austin Haskett, meanwhile, will participate in perhaps as many as seven events, leading coach Erik Cross to yearn for a decathlon in high school meets. “If they stay healthy I think they will have the opportunity to contend for a league title,” Cross said of the boys squad. Sophomore Jori Paradis, who took eighth in the 800 last year, moves up to the 1,500. Paradis also ran a leg on the 4x400 squad that took fourth. Desiree Sinn also ran a leg on that relay. Cross almost could field a complete relay team of Sinns, with Katie and Samantha also part of the spring corps, along with Madi Arrington.

“This girls team is very athletic and competitive,” Cross said.


The Foxes turned in a strong showing April 5, dominating a four-way meet that included Lebanon, Central and South Albany. The competition marked a return to the home track for Silverton, which was forced to run a meet at Kennedy while repairs were made to the surface of the track at McGinnis Field. Mount Angel youth project: Mount Angel Youth Sports (MAYS) is holding a fundraising campaign for its baseball and softball programs, which serve more than 160 young athletes. The group hopes to raise $12,000 in cash, materials and in-kind donations to pay for improvements to its two fields and its indoor practice facility.

People Out Loud

Nurturing types

Stories about caring for the young and not-so-young Speaking of awesome, how about Mike and Ken Roth? What they did that turned a disabled vet’s world right-side up is a remarkable thing.

Miss Becky is leaving the building. Mic drop. After 12 years of hugging, loving, and teaching three and four year old little darlings, Becky Detherage is hanging up her preschool hat. Becky started James Street Christian Preschool at the Assembly of God Church, where husband Rich was the pastor. It was an instant success because this woman was made for working with children. It then moved to Immanuel Lutheran Church, the home of Noah’s Ark Preschool. After two other moves the preschool found its roots at Immanuel Lutheran again. Years of working with kids, a job she loves, is coming to a close May 31. Husband Rich says of Miss Becky, “Her total career in early childhood education spans over 30 years. I may be prejudiced,

but there are teachers, then there is Miss Becky. I have never known anyone with more passion for kids. I’ve seen her take meals to sick moms, take kids to lunch and often weep over family dilemmas.” Retiring? Not this woman. You can find her at her new second career in real estate with B&ST Realty. And there is no doubt – there will be hugs, snacks, and the same caring spirit she gave her hundreds of mini-minions for 30 years. The jury is still out on whether her real estate clients will be required to drink their milk and take naps, but rest assured there will be smiles all around.

Mike is a Realtor and his dad, Ken was one, too, before retiring. Ken had a rental property and rented it to a disabled Army vet who recently came off his third deployment in a combat zone. Talk turned to whether the owner would sell the house, and if the vet could afford it. With Mike handling the sale, a deal was put together at a price likely to be way under what this red-hot real estate market would bear. That got the soldier the approval he needed from his V.A. lender. The Roths put a new roof on for him and picked up his closing costs, working with him every step of the way. Because of their kindness and respect for his service, he was able to buy the home just two months ago, a home he couldn’t have afforded otherwise. People who know I’m in real estate might ask, “Why is he promoting another Realtor? Aren’t they competitors?” Who cares? Ya gotta love those Roth boys.
