Farmer’s Notebook


By Melissa Wagoner Eight years ago Marquam Hill Ranch became part of a niche in tourism that is gaining popularity in Oregon. Known as agritourism, it is broadly defined as bringing visitors to a farm or ranch to take part in agriculturally based activities. At Marquam Hill Ranch this means daily tours of the 18 acres that house a herd of 80 alpacas and personalized education from owners Bill and Jennifer Cameron about the animals and the fiber they produce. Located on busy Highway 213 between Molalla and Silverton, Marquam Hill Ranch has no shortage of visitors. “It’s kind of a year around thing,” Jennifer said. “During the weekend usually we’re just slammed.” The Camerons began opening their doors to the public when they noticed a steady stream of travelers pulling over to take a look at their herd.

Marquam Hill Ranch uses yoga, wine, camps to encourage visitors “We had people pull up to the gate and want to come in,” Jennifer recalled. “If we leave it open at eight o’clock in the morning you get people driving in.” Along with the daily traffic of tours and customers to the ranch’s store, which features clothing, accessories and yarn made from alpaca fiber, the couple has begun holding special events in the barn and fields. “I like having the people and just sharing a bit about the alpacas,” Jennifer said. “They’re usually people who don’t usually come out.” The first big event of the summer will be July 1 and is a Dinner in the Field presented by Field & Vine. “This will be I think our fifth year,” Jennifer said. “We have about 150 people showing up. We put lights up and have animals out there in pens.” The dinner, which is locally sourced by Chef Pascal Chureau, is six courses paired

in a swimming pool. It depends on the weather and the dynamic of the group.”

“Their style of food is very clean,” Jennifer said. “It’s not a ton of sauces, but it’s a ton of flavor. It’s really nice. You can go right up to the chef.”

Ongoing throughout the summer is the Yoga, Alpacas and Wine class every Monday evening at 7 p.m.

Also on the roster is a summer camp in July for ages six to 14. The children will learn about alpaca history, uses for the fiber and how to care for the animals. “They’ll learn to halter and lead animals through an obstacle course,” Jennifer said. “We have 4H animals to demonstrate. With the older kids I like to talk about leadership skills. I take a lot of time to teach them how to work with the animals just like people.” The camp is in its fourth year and is a favorite of Jennifer, who has a degree in education. “They’re fun,” she said. “We do fiber arts. We also do some dryer balls, cat toys, needle felting. We walk the alpacas

“We’ve got Hanson Vineyards, AlexEli and then Wooden Shoe that are involved,” Jennifer said. Another weekly event, Open Field Picnics, will take place for the first time beginning in July. For adults only, it will give the Camerons the chance to share their favorite time of day on the ranch. “We enjoy it out here at night,” she said.

“As the sun sets all the animals come in on their own and they’ll eat grass right around our mats,” Jennifer laughed. “It’s fun to watch the animals trust us.”

Holding up an airy, warm weather shawl with a bright pattern Jennifer explained, “A lot of people think alpaca is all about the heavy stuff. It’s not. Some of it is lightweight.” Although the summer is going to be a busy one, Jennifer continues to dream up more ways to get people onto the ranch.

Brush Creek Playhouse continues its 2017 season with a delightful twist . . . or three. Director Dixie McCartney makes her Brush Creek debut with this set of comedic one-acts from David Ives. These short plays explore some eternal – and not so eternal – themes, with wonderfully comic results. For example, Words, Words, Words recalls the philosophical adage that monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would the monkeys talk about as they sat at their typewriters? Variations on the Death of Trotsky¸ on the other hand, shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head. In English Made Simple an otherwise ordinary encounter between a young man and

a young woman at a party takes on an extraordinary depth of meaning when their immediate romantic attraction is translated into a comically unromantic grammar lesson as they struggle to free themselves from the banal constrictions of party talk. A cast of just four presents all the roles in this critically acclaimed, award-winning set of comedies. The show opens Friday, June 16 and runs through Sunday, July 3, with performances at 7 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays. Brush Creek now sells reserved seat tickets. Tickets are $10 ($8 for seniors, children and students) and can be purchased in advance at Books-NTime, 210 N. Water St. , Silverton. They are also available at the door 30 minutes before each performance. For information visit

Silverton Opportunity, dedicated to supporting women in local leadership, awarded four leadership grants in June. Two were awarded to Silverton High School graduating seniors and two went to Silver Falls School District educators. Students were asked to submit a 350-word essay about what it means to be a female leader, and how a grant would help them achieve their goals. Silverton resident Angie Rueda won a $500 grant. A first generation American who plans to attend Chemeketa Community College this fall, Rueda would like to help advance the lives and careers of

Hispanic and Latina women. Scotts Mills resident Alexis Stravens was the runnerup. She impressed the grant team with her commitment to working with refugees. She received a $250 grant. The teachers receiving grants are Ronda Hurley, who will use a $500 grant to bring yoga and mindfulness instruction to her second-grade class at Victor Point, and Cindy Hawley who will bring juggling into her eighth-grade classroom. Both teachers believe that helping kids master new and challenging skills in a group setting builds self-esteem and confidence.

Newcomers welcome to garden plots By Melissa Wagoner

No space for a garden? No problem. Several churches in Silverton offer community garden space free of charge. No charge for the land, the water and in some cases even the seeds and plants. “The church is committed to providing water. Tools are also available and free seeds and plant starts are obtained from Marion Polk Food Share and are available on site,” Juli Baldwin, garden coordinator for Silverton First Baptist Church said. Baldwin has been a member of her community garden for the past four summers and enjoys gardening in an area that is not only sunny but out of the reach of deer, which made gardening on her own property impossible. “I love it because there’s something great about working the earth, watching things grow and the budding of friendship that can grow from working together. As well as the harvest of fresh and economical vegetables,” she said. Community gardens vary in size and are divided into any number of plots or raised beds which participants are given creative license to plant. “This is a safe place to try new gardening ideas and to get advice from people who have more experience in this area,” Marissa Payne, coordinator for the Water Street Garden Plot said. “Gardening, whether you keep the produce or give it away, brings a sense of pride to the people who are involved.” Payne has been gardening for the past ten years but established her allotment in the Water Street Garden Plot when she moved to Silverton four years ago. “It was important to me to show my kids how to grow their own food,” she explained. “Growing veggies encourages my kids to eat fruits and vegetables that they may otherwise not try. My kids love growing spinach and carrots and will eat them straight from the ground. I love the feeling when I put a dish on the table at dinner time, knowing that I have grown that food and know exactly where

Although the churches do not regulate what is planted inside each space, they do ask that participants keep the plots weed free and help to maintain the common areas and pathways.

This year the Water Street Garden Plot, run by Silverton Church of Nazarene, is trying something new and dedicating five garden boxes to the community at large. “The idea is to grow a variety of veggies in those boxes that do not end up going home with the people who tend to them,” Payne explained. “One of our members has plans to build a little road-side stand where we can put these veggies. Anyone driving by will be free to take a few things. There are many people in our community that are struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately, fresh fruits and veggies often end up on the bottom of the grocery list because of their price compared to the price of canned goods. Our goal is to give back to these folks who may need those radishes or carrots or green beans in order to feed their families something fresh.” Due to the wet spring the community gardens are getting a late start this year. Both churches are currently welcoming new garden members. “If anyone in the community would like to join us, come on out,” Payne said.

Something to Think About


Field work abroad proves to be a multi-faceted journey Masaligin Bodunov and the other volunteers saw a variety of injuries and diseases during their time there.

By Melissa Wagoner

Fedosia Masaligin Bodunov has been interested in acupuncture since the fourth grade. Growing up, her mom took her and nine siblings to the chiropractor and acupuncturist when they were sick.

“We treated 120 patients on average per week and spent the rest of the day studying on what you saw and meeting with coworkers,” she said. “There was something about your mind always being on the medicine that I’ll miss.”

“That’s what my knowledge of medicine was like,” she explained. Born in Monitor, Masaligin Bodunov, 28, has spent the past eight years studying her passion, even taking extra courses in Chinese and pharmacology simp;y because they interested her. At one point a college mentor told her he’d never seen someone so determined in what she wanted to do. Last year, after graduating from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, which many consider the best acupuncture school in the nation, Masaligin Bodunov decided to put her new skills to the test. She joined a group of four other volunteers with the Acupuncture Relief Project and worked in Nepal for two months.

After her trip to Nepal, Masaligin Bodunov spent a three-week stint in China studying Applied Channel Theory with Dr. Wang Ju-Ye.

Fedosia Masaligin Bodunov administering acupuncture techniques in Nepal.

“My second year of school I came across some other students who volunteered there,” she said. “You can go out and use the skills you just learned right away because we were their primary care practitioner.”

Using this method “I can palpate and find changes that would most likely correlate to what is wrong,” she explained. “He always says, ‘Put your mind in your fingertips.’” While in China Masaligin Bodunov was able to view a different system of treatment than that seen in the West. “(Here) there’s this association to acupuncture being this New Age thing,” she said. “It’s actually been around for

hundreds of years.” Finished with school and back from her travels abroad, Masaligin Bodunov is taking what she learned and bringing it to her new practice at White Oak Wellness in Silverton. “We have three acupuncturists and they’re full time,” she said. “That shows the mentality of Silverton; that they’re open to it.” White Oak Wellness sees patients of all ages and works with most insurance plans but Masaligin Bodunov suggests that those interested check with their insurance ahead of time. She also suggests that people come in and check out the clinic and feel free to ask questions. “Be curious,” she said. “I love answering questions. Once they understand how it works it has a deeper level of working on them.”

Power Tap workshop series kicks off at Grange Hall

basic clogging and rhythm techniques – and how to listen to the beats of the music.” Traditionally performed to bluegrass music, students will also clog to popular songs on the radio.

Some call it Power Tap. Others humorously refer to it as “tap dancing on steroids.” To Ruth Mattox it is “pure joy.” We’re talking about clogging. The Silverton resident and dance teacher is excited to show new students a toetappin’ fun time at her upcoming clogging workshop. Her “Summer Power Tap Dance Workshop Series” kicks off on June 28 and runs through Aug. 23. Held at the Silverton Grange Hall, students will meet every other Wednesday and enjoy new short dance routines. “Clogging is a really lively, energetic, powerful form of percussive dance. It’s a cousin to tap dancing, originating in the Appalachian Mountain Region of the United States as an American folk dance. It gets inside and takes hold of you – it’s drumming with your feet,” Mattox said, adding it is not the same as “Riverdance.” Mattox was first introduced to clogging while living in Utah. By chance, she noticed a woman organizing a workshop

The classes will be divided into two age groups, with 10 students in each: six to seven year olds, and eight year olds through adults. Silver Creek Clogging was formed in the fall of 2015. First classes were held at the Silverton Grange Hall last September.

of clogging classes. She signed up and instantly clicked with this style of dance that made her heart sing. Mattox, who has taught clogging in Wyoming, Colorado and Utah, glows when she describes witnessing that familiar spark of joy take hold of a new

student. “The little girl that comes to class on her first day and puts on her clinky shoes and steps on the floor and makes all this noise. You can see her eyes just lighting up,” she said, smiling. “We are going to chug, jump and learn

“We really are just starting in Silverton. There are no other clogging studios in the immediate area. This is a chance to get into it and grow. It’s really important to me that the environment supports this joy we are experiencing.” To register for the workshop, visit The Silverton Grange Hall is located at 201 Division St., Silverton.

Tired of Cleaning up After Your Water? • Stubborn Stains • Constant Build-up • Pesky Water Spots

Well, except for the hail. “Our only issue last year was the craziest hailstorm I’ve ever seen – and I grew up here,” said Mary Ridderbusch-Shearer, public events manager for The Oregon Garden. “That experience was actually one of my favorite moments at any event I’ve worked. People were huddled under the awnings of the beer booths, darting from awning to awning to get their glasses filled. Guests were laughing and making the best of it. Authorized Independent Dealer

“I always tell folks it was the most Oregonian thing I’ve ever seen. Of course we can’t control the weather, but this year we’ll make the tent a little bigger so that if it happens again there’s a little more space to hide.” Brewfest regulars will find the 60-plus breweries, meaderies and cidermakers on hand, with approximately 120 offerings available for tasting. The festival also will offer local food, regional bands, the ambience of the forest and kids’ activities on Sunday. New this year is the Brewfest Market, which will feature booths spread throughout the forest offering beard oil, jewelry and hand-poured candles. “The market will be fairly small this first year,” Ridderbusch-Shearer said. “We want to offer our guests another amenity/ experience during their stay.”

A little bird landed on The Man’s shoulder and told him that Silverton’s own Daniel Côté, who has for years held many high level positions on the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners was recently elected the chairman of the International Board of Chiropractic Examiners... Way to go Daniel! As if your insomnia wasn’t bad enough, recent studies have concluded that when you drop food on the floor, the often followed “5 second rule” isn’t valid. It turns out that it actually takes under 1 second for all the little nastiness to adhere to what you’re tossing into your mouth..... Unfortunately they also concluded that in all likelihood, bacteria wise, your floor is cleaner than... wait for it... your kitchen counter..... Bon Appetit. Join The Man in wishing Frank and Bernadette Melé farewell and safe travels as they make the move to Tucson, Ariz. where apparently the sun shines a little more than here in the NW.... Wait, can I go, too?!? Sign up now to participate in Silver Falls Relay for Life at Silverton High School on July 15. The annual event for the American Cancer Society funds cancer research and features a survivor lap, hourly activities and the ever popular firefighter relay. It’s not too late to form a team of your own or to join an existing one, you can walk as little or as much as you like.... or just drop by to cheer on Bob Holowati (remember the guy that used to direct traffic before the light at C & Water St?) who has decided to walk all 12 hours, 50 miles or until his legs give out, whichever happens first... Now that’s a commitment! Either way it’s a great way to get a little exercise for a good cause. For more information call Stacy Palmer, 503-873-5615. Now that the summer that you thought would never arrive has arrived (???), and as the locals emerge from their hobbit holes like butterflies from chrysalis we begin to notice things look a little different around the area. New things like a herd of new fire trucks, a new place to post garage sale signs in the Lewis Street Lot and new names on Silverton Health. There’s new apartments (along with new traffic issues), a new music venue in Old Mill Park, plans for new lights in the

Kennedy, Silverton shine

Softball squads reach semis, reap honors

Kennedy and Silverton both battled into the state softball semifinals before ending impressive 2017 campaigns. The Trojans, who also advanced to the Class 2A-1A semifinals last season, took the No. 1 ranking into the playoffs and downed Gaston and Monroe before losing to eventual champion North Douglas 3-2 in the semis. Kennedy finished 19-6. Kennedy dominated the Special District 2 awards. Right-hander Tressa Riedman was named pitcher of the year, teammate Hannah Arritola was selected player of the year and Kennedy’s Walt Simmons took home the coaching honor. Joining Riedman and infielder Arritola on the first team were catcher Abby Frey, infield Emily Frey and outfielder Kalyssa Kleinschmit. Utility player Grace Schaecher made the second team and infielder Molly Jaeger received honorable mention. It was a busy spring for Abby Frey, who won a district title in the javelin and took seventh in the event at the Class 2A state meet. Silverton, meanwhile, also made the softball final four, downing Sandy and Ridgeview of Redmond before losing 10-2 to Mid-Willamette Conference rival Dallas in the semis. Dallas, which lost to Marist Catholic in the title game, defeated the 19-9 Foxes four times this season. Silverton’s junior shortstop Maggie Buckholz shared Mid-Willamette player of the year honors with Dallas catcher Laureen Wallace. Joining Buckholz on the first team were Foxes pitcher Alex Molloy and first baseman Grace Voltin.

Silverton catcher Maggie Roth, second baseman Daisy Hernandez and centerfielder Katelyn Hickam were selected to the second team, while third baseman Megan Mannion received honorable mention. Baseball: Kennedy catcher Jack Suing was named player of the year for leading the Trojans to a second-place finish in Special District 2 behind undefeated Regis. Joining Suing on the first team was infielder Brett Traeger. Second-teamers for the 18-7 squad were pitcher Daniel Moreno, utility player Jorge Espinoza and outfielder Sam Grosjacques. Designated hitter Diego Hernandez received honorable mention. The Trojans advanced to the round of 16 of the Class 2A-1A playoffs before falling to the Sherman/Arlington/Condon cooperative team. More honors for Mitchell: Kennedy High athlete Bishop Mitchell, is one of the three finalists for the Johnny Carpenter Male Athlete of Year for Class 4A-1A at this coming Sunday’s Oregon Sports Awards. Mitchell, a three-sport standout who plans to play football at Portland State University, was joined in the finalist pool by Blake Sentman of Cottage Grove and Hunter Knox of Harrisburg.

Three goals at once

Paradis siblings graduate from Oregon State Parents Pete and Donna Paradis will celebrate a family “hat trick” June 17 when three goals are accomplished as siblings Tim, Pierre and Lily Paradis each receive a diploma from Oregon State University. For Tim and Pierre the degrees are in General Agriculture. Lilly’s degree is in Human Development and Family Services. The Paradis brothers plan to move forward as entrepreneurs, with a concentration on developing Rainbow Valley Enterprises. The vineyard-based business offers contracting, hauling, and installation of vineyards and drip irrigation, plus managing Paradis Vineyard and restarting the Paradis Vineyard label this fall. Tim, a 2008 Silverton High grad, started college, stopped, then worked for several years with J and S Construction. After marrying Maria Bettancourt he returned to college to finish his degree. Maria finished her masters in teaching at George Fox in April. Donna says the couple is happy to be done and moving on with life. 

at an Oregon winery the fall following high school. After learning about opportunities to work the crush in wineries in Australia and New Zealand he traveled and worked overseas for four months before starting at Oregon State. He also headed to Chile for an internship. Pierre started Rainbow Valley Enterprises and wants to plant a vineyard of his own soon. Lilly has been on the fast track toward a college diploma since high school. When she graduated from Silverton High in 2014 she had already completed about a year’s worth of college credits. Her second year in college included a summer in Costa Rica in a Spanish immersion program. Between the Spanish credits and a history of carrying heavy course loads, Lilly is graduating in three years in her chosen major, with minors in business and Spanish. This fall she will be an intern working with at-risk adolescents and has plans for graduate school in 2018 for a masters in counseling. Can’t you just hear an announcer screaming “G-O-A-L-L-L!”?

Pierre, a 2011 Silverton grad, worked

“We are proud parents for sure!” Donna said.

People Out Loud

Stuck in my head

Life as a lyrical review

Music is an integral part of my existence. It is in my genes. Coming from a father who was a world-class guitarist, and having melodies in my head constantly (currently playing Put the Lime In The Coconut by Harry Nilsson), my life is a song, and music is so often a metaphor for life.   For those who sometimes sit timidly on the sidelines, refusing to get in the game we call life, Garth Brooks has the cure: ”Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you’re standing outside the fire.” The song, of course, is aptly titled, Standing Outside the Fire.  Tired of expending all your energy helping others, wondering if someone is going to toss you a bread crumb? Just call Barry. As in Manilow... “I wanna be somebody’s baby, let somebody worry about me.”   Looking like a divorce on the horizon? Try Husbands and Wives, by David Frizzell and Shelly West: “It’s my belief, pride is the chief cause in the decline of the number of husbands and wives.”  

Man this ain’t my day tonight. Looks like she’s in love and I’m out of luck. That ain’t my shadow on her wall. Lord this don’t look good at all. That’s my girl, my whole world, but that ain’t my truck.” Deep, huh?  

Bad relationship or situation getting worse? Kenny Rogers, in his iconic The Gambler says, “You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, and know when to run...” Also works for friends, business deals, politics... Feeling your age just a bit after a long day at work or running an 18-yard marathon? “... the white line’s getting longer and the saddle’s getting cold. I’m much too young to feel this damn old.” Yup. Garth again, titled, I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old.   Lose out on love to another person?  Rhett Akins says it all in That Ain’t My Truck: “That ain’t my truck in her drive.

Regrets and mixed emotions of a lost love? Adele’s Hello is my favorite new song in years. Incredible voice, lyrics, melody, and message. Love it.   Note that most of these are country tunes. I like most every kind of musical genre, because good music is good music. But the days when every country song played backwards means the guy’s wife comes back, the tow truck brings his truck back, and his lost dog returns home are over.  Wynonna Judd sang one of the sweetest songs I’ve ever heard about real love. Allconsuming love. No strings love. Check it out: She Is His Only Need.   Can’t help but quote Garth Brooks. He is a genius. I only have 16 of his CDs so my experience with him is lacking, but the perfect metaphor for life (and some

say rodeos, too), is The Dance. Probably my favorite song of all time. “And now, I’m glad I didn’t know the way it all would end, the way it all would go. Our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I’d have had to miss the dance.” For those of you unfamiliar with the ways of the rodeo, many believe The Dance was written about bull riders and bronco busters, due to their hopefully successful eight second interaction some cowboys call The Dance.  I like to think it works for life as well.   And in this maelstrom we call politics in 2017, you guessed it. Garth nails it in The Change: “This heart still believes that love and mercy exist, while all the hatreds rage and so many say that love is all but pointless in madness such as this. It’s like trying to stop a fire with the moisture from a kiss and I hear them saying you’ll never change things. And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing. But it’s not the world that I am changing. I do this so this world will know that it will not change me.”
