Trinity Lutheran marks anniversary with a weekend of celebration

history, it’s entrenched in my blood.”

Silverton’s Trinity Lutheran Church will observe its 125th anniversary with a community celebration June 2 – 4. Starting off with a traditional Scandinavian dinner on Friday evening, and ending with a special service on Sunday, much will be shared about its history.

Church member Nancy Ohren and husband, Gary, are hopeful to see a solid turnout for the weekend celebration.

Former Congregational President and local historian Norm English will present a program on the church’s history Friday after dinner. When the church was founded in 1892, it was known as the Scandinavian Evangelical Lutheran Church. The name was changed to Trinity Lutheran in 1917. In 1919, a new church building was constructed within that year. Then a major renovation took place in 1971, which included the addition of an elevator. English said his wife, Margaret, and her family started attending the church in 1957 when they moved from Michigan. They attended other churches in Silverton over the years, but chose Trinity as their home

“Norman has gone through a lot of work to prepare a presentation in the historic room so that we can delve deep into our history. I’m looking forward to meeting and greeting former members and people of the community,” Nancy Ohren said. Norm English looks forward to sharing the church’s historical artifacts. NANCY JENNINGS

church in 1971. Both of their children were baptized there. English has been organizing the anniversary event since last Fall. With the help of volunteers, a glass case displaying historical items of the church has been completed. Each object has stood the test of time – and carries its own story. “We all remember things differently. It’s all about perspective,” English said. “If it’s

Spoken word

Toastmasters host open house to promote ‘Silver Tongues’

By Nancy Jennings

Member Mike Peterson has learned many skills, both personally and professionally. “Toastmasters has improved my life in so many immeasurable ways. My marriage has improved, although my wife would say that I’m still stubborn. As a business owner, I see communication as one of the largest barriers for anybody that we interact with.”

Does the thought of giving a speech scare you? You are not alone. Being an effective and confident public speaker can be a challenge. Listening intently and giving constructive feedback to a speaker can be equally difficult. But it can also be fun. Silverton’s Toastmasters group, the “Silver Tongues,” want to show you how.

Norma Pritchard heard about Toastmasters, but for a long time was too busy raising her children. Now she embraces all it has to offer. “I could fit it into my work schedule. I feel more confident,” she said.

The group is hosting a free open house on Friday, May 19, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., at the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1159 Oak St. Everyone is welcome to attend, observe the meeting and ask questions.

organization. We learn so much from each other, it’s such a supportive environment,” she said.

Toastmasters President Ann Snelling has been involved in the group for 18 years. She understands how it can feel intimidating – at first. “Receiving feedback is daunting as a new member,” she admitted. “It was more terrifying to me to consider what my evaluator might say after my first speech than giving the speech itself.” Toastmasters VP of Education Barb Rivoli appreciates the camaraderie. “I love the people that come through here and the relationships that are developed within the

For Deb Climer, joining the group helped improve her speaking skills at her job. “I was a children’s pastor. I was asked to preach, so I wanted to get better at that. Anywhere you go, it really helps.”

Silverton’s “Silver Tongues” Toastmasters work together to improve communication skills.

Members take on rotating roles –grammarian, timer, evaluator, humorist and “ah” counter – which aids in the learning process.

New member Lisa Heckman works as a financial controller for Crosby Hop Farm in Woodburn. She looks forward to learning tools to improve communication. “I need to sharpen my skills. I think this can really help me since I’m always behind the computer screen,” she said.

Don Rush and his son, Ian, joined the group a month ago. Rush owns West Coast Classic Cougar. Ian is a college student. “Ian would like to eventually own his own business. He’s always going to need to further his education. At the same time, I’m realizing how much I need to tighten up my skills,” he said.

Speech Evaluator Jamison Ulibarri enjoys witnessing the personal growth as members blossom in abilities and gain confidence. “We learn how to give constructive criticism and to meet people where they’re at,” he said.

Right now the group is practicing five-minute “ignite talks,” weaving together 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds. Timing is everything. “It forces organization and economy of words,” Snelling said.

Your Health

Holistic therapy Duo share common mission with healing touch By Melissa Wagoner Mary Purdy and Jen Holland are continually seeking new ways to holistically improve their health and the health of others. To achieve this goal they recently joined forces and opened Abiqua Bowen Clinic-ABC Wellness LLC in Silverton. Purdy, a 46-year-old mother of three, worked as a registered nurse for more than 18 years in labor and delivery at Silverton Hospital before continuing her education in natural healing practices. “I worked as a lactation consultant in the hospital and everything we would say wasn’t working,” she said. “I told one mom she needed to see someone in Portland and she started crying because she couldn’t go. I said, ‘OK, I’m learning this.’” In 2013 Purdy received training in craniosacral therapy, a light touch treatment to relieve tensions within the body and which can be, among other things, useful in infant disorders. “It’s so soothing for the nervous system,” Holland said.

Abiqua Bowen ClinicABC Wellness LLC 104 South Water St., Silverton 503-874-4083​ A year later Purdy was given a brochure about another touch therapy, Bowenwork, by her daughter’s teacher. “Bowenwork is a set of specific moves over specific areas to reset tension patterns in soft tissues,” Purdy explained. Seeking out a practitioner for a shoulder injury, she was elated to find the therapy alleviated the pain and gave her a sense of well-being. Convinced of the benefits she studied to become a practitioner. “Anyone could learn the motions but you have to develop that touch,” Purdy said. “I have procedures for everything. It depends on what I feel.” Holland, 38 and also mother of three, began her healthcare career in labor and delivery.

In 2010 she became a labor doula and in 2016 a certified professional midwife.

time to let it process. After my therapy, no other therapy for five days.”

“I did a midwifery apprenticeship and I saw a lot of babies that weren’t nursing well,” Holland said. “When I learned about craniosacral it was like, ‘Ah!’ a gentle, hands-on way to ease babies.”    

Purdy explained that if an injury has taken place over many years it can be weeks or a month before results are perceived.

She immediately began studying to become a practitioner herself. Working within similar fields, Purdy and Holland met in 2016 through a mutual patient. “We met and it’s like, ‘This is easy,’” Holland said. At the time, Purdy, who was renting space at another wellness center in Silverton, was looking to open her own office and grow the Bowen side of her practice. “I wanted to separate myself from all the other therapists out there,” Purdy said. Bowenwork takes time for the body to process the movements. “(It) is very subtle and it works on an area of your brain that filters out all of the information that’s coming in,” she said. “You need to have

The clinic is open by appointment, with Purdy working primarily in Bowenwork on children and adults and Holland utilizing craniosacral therapy with infants. “My intention was up to six weeks (old) and now it’s more like six months and will continue to expand,” Holland said. Most of her patients suffer from what is commonly referred to as “colic.” She explained that “colic means your baby is in pain or uncomfortable. It’s common, but not normal. Often in little babies it’s their necks and jaws and in between their shoulder blades and their gut. The parents will describe to me what’s going on and I can get a picture.” Holland uses a technique for a gentle release of tension that allows the baby’s body to relax and heal. “It’s a light touch manual therapy,” she

said. “I’m looking for what isn’t moving very well. The assessments are different. It’s a subtle palpation – looking for where things are sticky.”

American Legion Post #89 will hold its annual Memorial Day Service Monday, May 29 at Calvary Cemetery in Mount Angel.

She also sees a lot of constipation and bowel issues.

The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and will include a patriotic music concert by the Marion County Citizens Band, welcome remarks from Mount Angel Mayor Andy Otte, celebration of mass by Rev. Philip Waibel, O.S.B., pastor of St. Mary Church, and liturgical music performed by the St. Mary Church choir.

“Infrequent poopers,” she laughed. “I see those a lot. There’s like a poop button sometimes. I get a lot of poop pictures.” Purdy sees patients for conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome, depression, fibromyalgia, shoulder injuries and digestive issues. “Any recent injury is like the ideal thing to work on. It’s helpful for any pain,” she said. “I do a lot of tailbone work. A lot of people have fallen on their tailbone.” Bowenwork is also helpful for women during pregnancy she said, adding she wishes she could see every pregnant woman before and after delivery. “Because pregnant women are constantly changing they can receive it daily,” she said. For new moms Purdy also offers classes

aging class in the future. Both women hope their clinic will be a benefit to people of all ages and stages of life. “There’s so much to think about,” Holland said, “but if you’re not aware you can’t make changes.”

Everyone is welcome. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs. In the event of inclement weather, the service will take place in St. Mary Church.

Sister Jerome Zerr, O.S.B. Sister Jerome (Carol) Zerr, O.S.B., a member of Queen of Angels Monastery, died April 28, 2017, at the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Portland. She was 72. Sister Jerome (Carol) was born July 11, 1944, in Portland, to Peter and Elizabeth (Moffenbeier) Zerr. Following her father’s death in 1957, her mother moved the family to Mount Angel to care for ailing family members and to be closer to Sister Jerome’s brother, the future Abbot Bonaventure (Jerome) Zerr, who had entered Mount Angel Seminary. Sister Jerome attended high school at Mount Angel Academy and entered the Benedictine community on Sept. 9, 1962, a few months after her graduation. She made first profession on July 11, 1964, and perpetual monastic profession, July 11, 1969. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, Abbot Zerr. She graduated from Mount Angel College in 1969, and, later, did graduate work at Portland State University and the University of Portland. She began

Fr. Cosmas White, O.S.B

July 11, 1944 – April 28, 2017

her teaching career at Kennedy High School in 1967, and also taught at Sacred Heart School in Portland. In 1977, while still teaching at Sacred Heart, she began teaching at Central Catholic High School part-time. She continued to teach theology and assist in athletics at Central Catholic until her death, serving the staff, parents and students for 40 years. At the time of her 50th Jubilee of Monastic Profession in 2014, she said, “When I entered (religious life), my intention was to work for the Church. The community gave me that opportunity by giving me the spiritual life and an education to be part of a teaching ministry. I feel that I have received so much more than I have ever given.”  She was an avid reader, a dedicated sports fan, especially of the baseball and basketball teams of Central Catholic, a wise and caring teacher, a woman of keen wit, and a devoted member of the Benedictine Sisters. Sister Jerome had heart surgery on Wednesday, April 26 and died during her time of recovery.

Fr. Cosmas White, O.S.B., a monk and priest of Mount Angel Abbey, died April 27, 2017, at the Abbey in Saint Benedict, Oregon. He was 88 years old.

Jan. 6, 1929 – April 27, 2017 Church in Tillamook, St. Agatha’s Church in Portland, St. Paul’s Church in Silverton, and finally at Mount Angel Towers.

Fr. Cosmas was born Jan. 6, 1929, in New York to Francis James and Marie Mary (Masterson) White. After attending Catholic grade and high schools in New York he served in the Army from 1946 to 1947. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Fordham University before moving to Los Angeles to work there. Fr. Cosmas entered Mount Angel Seminary in 1953, began his Novitiate in 1956, was professed a monk of Mount Angel Abbey in 1957, and was ordained a priest on May 11, 1961. Following his ordination, Fr. Cosmas served faithfully in a number of assignments that included teaching and administering at two high schools. He spent five years at Ascension Priory after which he began his years of very active pastoral work at Sacred Heart

Fr. Cosmas celebrated fifty joyful years as a priest in 2011 surrounded by his brother monks and many of his former parishioners who loved and appreciated him. Father’s health declined over the past several years, but he was well cared for by his fellow monks and by the health care staff of Mount Angel Abbey.  Two days before his death, Abbot Jeremy anointed Fr. Cosmas with the whole community present.  He opened his eyes joyfully in recognition of the presence of the praying community, and, though unable to speak at the end, he expressed his “Amen” to the prayers by squeezing the Abbot’s hand.  He is survived by his brothers, Frank of New York and Anthony of Connecticut, his nieces and nephews, and his monastic community.

Life of adventure

Delmar Calvert – fencing master

By Michael Turner

to be decorated – among the youngest Knights of the Legion of Honor.   

Driving past the Mount Angel Towers, it’s hard not to wonder about the multitude of stories inside this sprawling retirement community. All of us have a story to tell, and one day I stopped by to see if anyone would be interested in talking with me.

As an aside, he mentions that he studied music composition in Chicago and recently was inducted into the fencing hall of fame. He studied fencing in the French army. After the war ended he “made his living with the sword,” coaching national and international fencing champions. 

I end up spending a sunny spring afternoon with Delmar Calvert, who, at 92, has a youthful sparkle of mischief in his eyes and a French accent that reveals he did not grow up around here.  

Delmar tells me that if he has a message for the next generation, it is to seek out experiences beyond the normal pattern of your life. That this is how you become a passionate and tolerant person, he says.

“I grew up very fast,” he said. “I’m really a born composer of music. For years, I walked around having symphonies or sonatas or operas going in my mind.” 

Amidst the photographs, clippings, and elegant artwork around the room, a globe sits in the corner. I spin it around, this small world: Paris... Tunisia... Mount Angel, Oregon.    

But music took a back seat to a life of adventure. At age three, he moved with his family from California to Paris, and then Tunisia, in North Africa, where he would enlist in the French Foreign Legion at age 14. 

Delmar would go on to join the U.S Army and become a resistance fighter with the Office of Strategic Serves, the first incarnation of the CIA.

The next year Hitler invaded France.

Later in life, he would return to France

Something To Do

Summer camps

Outdoors, farm life, yoga, sports – lots of things to explore

By Melissa Wagoner

Nearby camp resources

Chris Kinman enjoyed his childhood summer camp experience so much he made a career out of it. “I was kind of a shy little guy, but I loved it,” Kinman said. “The counselor I had just made it fun. I didn’t even get homesick.” Kinman, the Associate Director at Canyonview Ministries, attended many camps throughout his childhood and young adult years and understands the impact that a camp experience can have. “The friendships they gain are lifelong,” Kinman said. “The friends I made then – we still hang out today and our kids go to camp.” Kinman is part of a staff of more than 60 at Canyonview Ministries outside Silverton which offers both day and overnight camps for children seven and up. Overnight campers sleep in cozy cabins with five bunks and are served a healthy diet of fresh baked bread and scratch made meals. Kinman suggests that when deciding whether a child is ready for overnight camp parents consider their child’s level of self-confidence, and whether he or she has spent the night at a friend’s house. Day and overnight campers find a lot of outdoor entertainment. Encompassing over 64 acres, this faith-based camp teaches, among other skills; archery,

boating, fishing, outdoor cooking and horsemanship. “They learn to have fun,” Kinman said. “Some have never been in the outdoors before. We’ve got the creek to go creek walking in, the rope swing, the diving board. We’ve got life guards teaching them how to swim.” Also just outside of Silverton, GeerCrest Farm offers day camps for ages 6 to 16 and week-long overnight options to those over 8. “As a classroom, children and adults alike experience what a homestead farm is like, not just by witnessing but by participating. For the duration of their visit campers become extended members of an inter-generational farm family,” Site

Director Cayla Catino explained. Both day and overnight visitors learn to milk and care for the farm’s herd of dairy goats, gather eggs, garden, cook and preserve food and explore a variety of traditional crafts. Another way of getting kids outside and into a natural rhythm with nature is through Kids Yoga Summer Camp. A new addition on the summer camp scene, yoga instructors Chantal Barton and Jenifer Trivelli are partnering to offer a weeklong day camp to children in grades three through eight. “We’re teaching mindfulness and calmness while having fun,” Barton said. On 31 acres five miles outside Silverton, Barton and Trivelli plan to utilize the

space not only for yoga but also nature walks, terrarium construction and a giant puppet class. Also teaching body awareness this summer are the Silverton Ballet & Performing Arts Company and the Silverton Gymnastics Academy. Many other camps will also be taking place around the region including traditional sports camps such as basketball, baseball, tennis, volleyball, soccer and swimming as well as art and science camps. Whether it’s a day camp or a week-long over night session, indoors or out, camp can be a great way to learn new skills, boost confidence and foster friendships that can last a lifetime.

Sports & Recreation


Coach Mannion moves on

By James Day

Silverton boys basketball coach Steve Roth, who led the Foxes to the 2015 Class 5A state championship, has resigned his position.

Flash back to Sept., 28, 2012. The Silverton High football team, in its third year under coach John Mannion, led powerful West Albany, 28-21 with just a few minutes left.

“When I took over three years ago I didn’t expect it to be a long-term decision,” Roth told Our Town. “I’d been a head coach before and knew being an assistant coach is more in my wheelhouse.”

West Albany was the gold standard in the Mid-Willamette Conference, making it to the state finals three consecutive years, from 2006 to 2008. The Foxes had the ball and needed just one good drive to close it out. Then, Matthew Willis, perhaps the Foxes’ best offensive lineman, injured his ankle and had to come off the field. Mannion called up untested sophomore Cody Gubbels and told him he was going in. But before Gubbels could take the field, another Foxes backup lineman, senior Carlos Rodriguez, grabbed Gubbels by the arm and told him “You’ve got this! We’re going to win this game!” The Foxes held on to win, later flattened West Albany 35-6 in the playoffs and advanced to the Class 5A semifinals. It was the start of a remarkable threeyear run in which Mannion’s team was 33-4 and made the state semifinals three consecutive years, with all four losses coming against the eventual state champion. Mannion, 49, is leaving the Foxes to take over the football program at Mountainside, a new high school in Beaverton. In a sometimes emotional exit interview with Our Town he cited that West Albany game as one of his best memories because it showed how everyone bought into the program. And without that buyin you aren’t going to be successful. Mannion was successful, to be sure, going 57-20 in his seven years, appearing in the playoffs in all but his first season. “These were fun guys to coach,” Mannion said. “They worked hard and did it the right way.” A California native, he coached in the San Francisco Bay Area at Milpitas High and Foothill of Pleasanton before taking the Silverton job. “I’m very proud of what we were able to accomplish,” he said. “It was a team effort all the way. I’m grateful for the players I was able to coach. They really embodied what I love about football. They

were humble, hard workers and good teammates. I feel lucky to have spent the last seven years here.” Mannion also praised the strong community support he received, noting a 2011 playoff game 275 miles away in Ashland in which the Foxes had more fans in the stands than the home team. “That type of support was great. I’m very grateful to the community for supporting the program and supporting me personally. There were a lot of people behind the scenes that were strong advocates for me and my program.” The coaching staff was remarkably stable, with Mike Fessler, Craig Rankin, John Howard, Dan Harrison, Don VonWeller, Grant Piros and Josh Craig all serving at least six of the seven years. Even the chain gang guys were there year after year. “It’s been such a ride and I made a lot of lifelong friends. This chapter has been great,” Mannion said. He said the decision to leave was a difficult one, with the unique challenge of being able to start a program from scratch playing a key role. Mountainside will open in the fall with just freshmen and sophomores and will not field a varsity football team. In year two, with three classes of students, the school will play an independent varsity schedule. In the third year with a full complement of classes Mountainside will join the Metro League. “There are a lot of challenges and no guarantees on how it will go,” Mannion said. “It’s a unique opportunity to start a program and a really big challenge that I need to embrace and see what I can do with it.”

The Foxes were 51-26 in the past three years, including a 22-4 campaign in 201415 that included a 33-32 win against Wilsonville in the state championship game at Gill Coliseum. The past two seasons the Foxes came within one victory of returning to Gill. “I tend to agonize over certain aspects of the job,” Roth said. “We had to cut about 30 kids this year. I hate that. I don’t like losing games we should win or losing any games for that matter. But I think that for all my shortcomings the Foxes are in a good place. We have great kids in the program and a positive culture. My hope is that the next coach will take them higher.” Foxes athletic director Wade Lockett has two big hires to make this spring. In addition to the boys basketball position Lockett is interviewing candidates for the football position – John Mannion is leaving for a school in Beaverton. “They’re tough losses,” Lockett told Our Town. “No doubt about it. It will be very difficult to replace those guys. They are both amazing mentors for kids, the kind of people you want your kids to learn from.” Lockett said that there were in-house candidates for both positions and that he hoped to have hires announced by this week. Roth, who has been affiliated with the program for more than 20 years, will remain a teacher at the school and hopes to serve the new coach as an assistant. “I’ve been part of a state championship as well as a 2-22 season, but the struggle is always the same,” Roth said. “Ego and effort and humility and teamwork and sacrifice and poise are necessarily challenged in basketball (and other team sports) in a way that if done right will translate into marriage and family and career and life.

“Like with everything else I do in life I tend to get so focused on the immediate results (wins and losses) that I lose the big picture. But winning games isn’t very important when it is compared with that.” Softball: Kennedy remains undefeated in Special District 2 and ranked No. 1 in Class 2A/1A by the OSAA. The Trojans are 11-0 in league, two games ahead of Central Linn with four games to play. Central Linn comes to Mount Angel on May 16. The Trojans have clinched a state playoff spot and almost assuredly will play a home playoff game May 24. Silverton, meanwhile, also is in good shape for the postseason. The Foxes are 12-4 in the Mid-Willamette Conference and ranked No. 6 in Class 5A. Silverton also looks primed to host a playoff game May 24. Foxes junior shortstop Maggie Buckholz continues her impressive slugging. Buckholz, who has committed to play in college for Oregon, belted two home runs May 5 in a 10-5 loss at No. 2 Dallas. In the process Buckholz extended her singleseason school record to 10 homers. Baseball: Kennedy is 10-2 in Special District 2, two games behind undefeated Regis. The Trojans, who are one game ahead of 9-3 St. Paul and 1.5 games in front of 8-3 Western Mennonite, need to stay No. 2 in the league to guarantee them a Class 2A-1A playoff spot. Kennedy has a chance to play its way in with two games vs. Western Mennonite and one against St. Paul down the stretch. Music: Silverton senior Marah Christenson took home first place in flute at the OSAA solo music competition April 29 at Pacific University in Forest Grove. Christenson totaled 966 points among the three judges, three points ahead of runnerup Courtney Badura of North Medford. OSAA classification: The OSAA committee looking at classification and

districting has softened its position on changing from six classes to five. After receiving another batch of comments opposing the move to five classes at its April 10 meeting in Wilsonville and from athletic directors at their April 24 conference in Sunriver the committee released a report that only includes a sixclass approach. Class 5A athletic directors voted 22-3 in favor of retaining the current six-class model, with Class 2A ADs backing six classes by a 19-7 margin. In the current six-class draft Silverton would be placed in a nine-team Class 5A league that also would include Central, Corvallis, Crescent Valley, Dallas, Lebanon, North Salem, South Albany and West Albany. Kennedy, meanwhile, would have to travel a bit more because the school would be in a league with Culver, which is a 300-mile round trip. The new alignment also would CCB #14854

put Kennedy in a different league than long-time rival Regis. Moffatt, the Kennedy AD, told Our Town that he was not enthusiastic about his teams traveling to Culver “but sometimes you have to accept what is best for the majority of the state, not just what is best for your school.” The committee meets again May 22 and also will hold meetings in June and September before a final decision is made. The new system will be instituted in the fall of 2018. Track and field update: District competition for Silverton and Kennedy occurred after Our Town’s presstime. We will have a report on our Facebook page and a wrap-up of district and state meet results in our June 1 edition. Got a news tip? Email me at jamesday590@ Follow Our Town on Facebook.

People Out Loud

Youth movement Kudos to the Silverton City Council for selecting Rhett Martin for the seat vacated by Kyle Palmer, now mayor filling Rick Lewis’ seat, which was vacated so Mayor Rick could take over for Rep. Vic Gilliam’s spot in the Oregon House. Now that we have the musical chairs settled, Martin’s appointment is significant. It completes a very productive council which doesn’t always sing in perfect harmony on issues, but is virtually always respectful, open-minded and fair. But having known Rhett for some time, and considering him to be a very bright and fine young man, it is important to note that he is 25. In a town filled with clubs, organizations, public bodies, boards and commissions, he represents a group that is perpetually under-represented – the under 35 crowd. Maybe this is the start of something big, where we have diversity in representation with boards that look like we look: young, old, male, female, Hispanic/Latino/ Latina, Caucasian, African-American, Asian American, et al. It does my heart good to know that Matthew Burford, Eric Wareham, and Brent Satern joined the Rotary Club of Silverton, and that Briana Hupp (26) is the newest executive board member of Silverton Area Community Aid, Inc. (SACA). It is good to know that Silverton High School junior Rowan Lieggi was appointed to the City’s Environmental Management Committee. And there are mor than 80 high school students in Rotary’s Interact Club and Kiwanis’s Key Club. Actually, the youngest public servant might well be Christie Diacetis’ four year-old daughter who recently attended a City Council meeting with her mom. Kyle Palmer better keep a wary eye on her – she seems like mayoral material. Now that we are on a roll with wonderful people, let’s talk about Pat Casey, head coach of the number one ranked Oregon State Beaver baseball squad. At press time, they were 39-4. Many folks in Beaver Nation are making plans for an Omaha vacation next month for the College World Series. Why call out Casey? As a human being, he is incredible. He wrote a lengthy thank-you to my eight year-old nephew. Hand-written, thanking him

We cracked up as the adult pitcher asked what he was doing, and Drew, the catcher replied, “Giving you signs.” Drew and his parents Todd and Tara Boedigheimer of Scottsdale (Todd is from Silverton, Tara from Hubbard, and both are Oregon State grads) gave the Beavers shirts from the Miracle League with the name “Drew’s Crew” printed on the sleeves. When presented with the shirts, Casey stopped practice, called all 25 players together for a photo, and they all put on for giving the Beaver team Miracle League of Arizona the jerseys. A few players even turned sideways so viewers shirts. The Miracle League is an amazing organization could see the words “Drew’s Crew.” It was priceless. At with a motto, “Because Every Child Deserves a Chance Beaver games (in Arizona), he lets Drew hang out in to Play Baseball.” Drew plays in this heart-warming the locker room and on the field. He gets it. His son has league with other special needs kids, and watching it in some challenges, too. Pat Casey could be 0 and 28.
