Stay-at-home dads

Joys of raising children aren’t just for moms

By Melissa Wagoner

Fellow stay-at-home dad Eric Nelson agrees.

Househusband, stay-at-home dad, work-from-home father – all of these terms describe a trend in parenting showing up wherever young children are found.

“I think the first six years is a special time – before they go to school,” he said. “My favorite part is that extended time during the day to watch them grown.”

Fathers are strapping on baby carriers and diaper bags and getting down to the daily business of caring for their young children – many while continuing to embark on a career. “[W]ith child care being so expensive the bulk of my paycheck would have gone to that,” Kevin Gerlits, father of two, explained. “We had also always hoped to have our children have one parent home raising them – we are grateful and lucky to have this opportunity.” With the birth of their first child, Alana, now five, Gerlits – a building designer – began working half time but continued commuting to Salem. With the birth of their second child, Emmett, now three and a half – he became a full-time work-from-home dad. He spends nights and weekends – time when his wife Therese is home – catching up on work. “Therese [Principal at Butte Creek Elementary] made more money than I did and had better benefits so it just made sense at the time,” Gerlits said. Apart from the financial savings, the arrangement has

Nelson, a full-time firefighter for the Salem Fire Department, is able to maintain a career while acting as the primary caregiver for his daughter, Charlotte, age two, because of the flexibility of both his schedule and that of his wife Jennifer, a forensic scientist in Clackamas.

benefited Gerlits by offering him the chance to be present during each of his children’s firsts – something he likely would have missed had he continued to work full-time. He described “seeing the joy and enthusiasm when they discover something new and wonderful for the first time,” as one of the greatest highlights of the parenting arrangement.

“Her job is unique because it’s full of mothers,” Nelson said. “They had a very liberal policy where they just need 40 hours. We made the decision to co-parent instead of do daycare.” Although the decision to maintain one parent in the caregiving role at all times was an easy one for the Nelsons, it has come with challenges. Very limited time alone as a couple is one of them. “We basically give each other a high five,” Nelson shrugged. “We’re in a season where our time together isn’t much, so we have to be more intentional.” Although the scarcity of couple time isn’t a problem exclusive to couples with stay-at-home dads, it has given Nelson a unique perspective.

explained. “Likewise, as the stay-at-home parent it is important to remember your spouse or partner has been at work all day and may need a little time to be home before the full weight of the children jumps on them and hugs them into oblivion.” Although parenting – no matter who is doing it – has its challenges, those hugs are a big motivator for both Gerlits and Nelson who feel lucky to be able to spend every day with their kids. “I have always wanted to have a heavy hand in parenting and my job has given me the ability to do that,” Nelson said. “[Charlotte] basically stays with family 100 percent of the time.” Kevin Gerlits playing with his son Emmett at Silverton Indoor Park. MELISSA WAGONER

Although the majority of stay-at-home parents are still moms, Gerlits said he has encountered a lot of support.

“The hardest thing for me – for our situation – is paying attention to Jen,” he said. “I think for the first eight years of our marriage she was my princess and then Charlotte came along...”

“I think daycare has kind of become the norm and a lot of the people I have talked with seem pleasantly surprised that I’m staying home with my children,” he said. “Plus two of my close friends are also stay-at-home dads so that’s been fun.”

Gerlits, too, has gained new perspective in being the primary caregiver for his children and tries to find balance with empathy. “The parent that is at work all day needs to realize that staying home with the kids is also a full-time job,” he

Overall, both men said they are happy with their choice and would recommend it to others. “Just do what works best for you,” Gerlits suggested.“And don’t be resistant to change as new situations arise.”

By James Day The rules on annexations – the process that brings land into the city limits – has changed in Oregon. Governor Kate Brown in March 2016 signed Senate Bill 1573, which puts limits on voter-approved annexation. The legislation was part of a series of housing-related bills that the Legislature has passed in the past two years to simplify land-use decision-making and increase the supply of housing. Corvallis, Philomath and the League of Oregon Cities challenged SB1573 in court, but both Benton County communities have pulled back from sending annexations to the voters while the matter is in under appeal.

Mount Angel’s charter, said City Manager Amber Mathiesen, calls for voter-approved annexations “if state law does not govern” them.

Alan G. Carter, DMD

Because state law now does just that, with the signing of SB 1573, Mount Angel is following suit by not requiring votes. The city has not annexed any land since SB 1573 became law. The last annexation was in February 2016, but the parcel has not yet been developed. Things were a bit more complicated in Silverton, which passed an ordinance favoring annexation votes in 2005. Five annexations totaling approximately 115 acres came to the voters between 2006 and 2009. All five land additions failing by wide margins. In September 2016, the Silverton Council passed a resolution halting annexations of sites larger than two acres pending the outcome of legal challenges to SB 1573, according to Community Development

Something Fun

Work-to-play

Building trails and connections in the great outdoors

By Melissa Wagoner If you don’t mind getting dirty and you like the outdoors then Beth Dayton, board president of the non-profit group Salem Area Trail Alliance (SATA), has got the hobby for you – trail work parties. Although the word “work” is included in the name, and some real work does get done, Dayton and the crew at SATA – including a team known as the “Party Tsars” – make sure some fun happens too. “My core idea is that I didn’t want people to just come out and work,” Dayton explained. “I wanted people to get to know each other. I think food was the connecting idea.” Basing the model for her work parties off that of mountain bike races – where food and socializing is built into the event and part of the overall draw – Dayton is known for bringing a carload of donated goodies.

SATA, whose mission is to build and maintain trails for non-motorized use in and around Salem, got its start in 2010 as the brainchild of Jeff McNamee. Dayton, an outdoor enthusiast who had recently embarked on her own trail establishment project near her home in Salem, joined the team in 2013. “[McNamee] had all these trail projects

COURTESY SALEM AREA TRAIL ALLIANCE

up his sleeve,” Dayton remembered. “It was a pretty short time from when I met him until I was on the board of directors.” As a long-time board member, one of Dayton’s primary functions within SATA

has been the organization of work parties, of which there is a constant flow, because of the sheer number of projects SATA has been involved with including trails at Silver Falls State Park, Spring Valley and Croisan Creek. At Silver Falls in 2014 the team undertook the biggest project in 15 years – the Catamount and Newt Loop Trails –

requires, there are jobs for volunteers of all ages and abilities, according to Dayton. “If you can’t swing a tool, we still have a job for you,” she said. SATA’s inclusive attitude is part of what makes the work parties so successful and Dayton said most are an interesting mixture of people coming from an assortment of backgrounds. “We might have a stay-at-home dad, a doctor, a construction worker, anybody you can imagine,” she said. Even kids are welcome to join most work parties – those appropriate for children are labeled as such on SATA’s website. “I love seeing kids that are comfortable in the woods,” she said. “The parents just let them get muddy.” However, Dayton cautions that parents should take their own child’s needs and abilities into consideration before bringing them along. Work parties tend to be approximately four hours in length

Trail work parties emphasize social interactions with others, and gives volunteers an opportunity to work out of doors in regional forests like Silver Falls State Park. COURTESY SALEM AREA TRAIL ALLIANCE

and a long way from the trailhead and bathroom facilities. No matter what brings volunteers to a work party – a love of mountain biking, the great outdoors,

or meeting new folks – Dayton thinks trail work parties are a great hobby that almost anyone can embrace. “After people have helped build trail there’s a new

appreciation,” she explained. “It’s really a personal, emotional connection. By all means, come and help.”

100 Years with Rose Daughter shares mom’s story Jacqueline Rose Olivo turned 100 March 1, and she celebrated her birthday at 3 Ten Restaurant in Silverton surrounded by nine of her 16 children.

Mt. Angel Auto Body

Now her daughter Barbara Cagle, the 13th of the 16, has authored the book 16 x Mom: A Mastery of Motherhood and now is producing a documentary A 100 Years With Rose.

Barbara notes of the 10 girls and six boys all were full term and there were no twins

“How amazing is it that she still has 15 of her 16 children – all senior citizens – living? She was pregnant over 4,500 plus days,” Barbara wrote. “Mom made sure all her children had a good education and brought them up with a strong faith in our Lord.”

BUTTE CREEK COMPUTER SERVICE

Rose and her husband Nello were married for 66 years before his passing. Now she lives with her second oldest, Jeanie. Barbara reports during the celebration the one-liners were nonstop and laughter filled the room as each child stood up to toast and declare their love as if “Mom loved me most!” Rose also got a chance to talk to her older brother in California to proclaim she is now officially a centenarian. Longevity runs in the family. She visited her brother when he turned 102 last October. Rose loves spending time with her children and 120-plus grand, great and great-great grandchildren. What are her secrets to longevity? Gardening, eating nutritious meals, and hearing from

Something to Celebrate

Off to nationals

FBLA students shine at state event

By James Day

Silverton Farmers Market has been named Outstanding Small or Rural Market of the Year for 2018 by the Oregon Farmers Market Association. OFMA cited the successful Power of Produce (POP) Club and community support as reasons for honoring the market.

Silverton High will be sending seven members of its FBLA squad to a national competition in June. The Silverton team turned in a sterling performance April 5-7 at the State Business Leaders Conference event in Portland. Earlier this spring the Silverton participants had to advance by finishing in the top 10 at a regional skills conference.

The POP Club also received a $1,000 grant from Judy’s Party. A nationally recognized program, started in Oregon City, POP Club allows children 5-12 to sign up for a Passport to Health at the market, and receive a reusable shopping bag. Each week, participants can come back to the market and receive $2 in tokens to spend on fresh fruits, vegetables, or food plants.

Three Silverton entrants took first places in the Portland event. Brian Sung was first in impromptu speaking, Hayden Wallsinger was first in hospitality management and the team of Cooper Hammond and Ethan Hunter triumphed in mobile application. Naomi Kleinschmit was second in job interview and electronic career portfolio. Elena Munoz, meanwhile, took second in sales presentation and Emily Huyck was third in future business leader. Participants had to finish in the top four in their events to qualify for nationals.

Also placing at state were Hammond (fifth, computer problem solving), Samantha Lawson (sixth, sales presentation), Huyck (seventh, organizational leadership) and Santana Uhl (ninth in scrapbook).

Milner earned a top 15 honor in sports and entertainment management, while Milner also was the video challenge winner.

Huyck also won a top 10 “Who’s Who” award and a virtual scavenger hunt challenge. Cory Garlinghouse and Isaac

Sung was elected Willamette Valley Regional vice president, while Principal Wade Lockett was named administrator of the year.

Nationals are June 26 – July 1 in Baltimore, with students required to fundraise approximately $1,700 each to make the trip, said adviser Riane Towery. “We are currently in the fundraising process to help students get back to Baltimore to compete and take part in this incredible opportunity they earned,” Towery said.

The POP Club also provides activities for all kids at the market, focusing on healthy choices, plants and growing, and connecting with farms and farmers. Signing up for the POP Club is free, but the program welcomes donations. The Silverton Farmers Market opens for the 2018 season on Saturday May 12, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Town Square Park. There will be live music, great food, favorite market vendors, and new vendors, too. The market runs Saturdays through Oct. 13.

Off to med school Former Foxes wrestler Izaak Tobin paces OSU squad in GPA Sometimes the statistics don’t really matter. Sometimes it’s what you do off the playing field that ultimately counts. And what you make of your opportunities. The record shows that Izaak Tobin, a two-time runner-up at the state wrestling tournament while at Silverton High, was 17-16 in his career at Oregon State, with a 2-2 mark in his just-concluded senior year. The Beavers compete at the highest level of college wrestling and won five consecutive Pac-12 championships from 2012-16. Although disappointed in the wrestling portion of his college experience Tobin graduated with a degree in exercise and sports science and was the top academic performer on the Beavers squad his final two years. “He’s one of the best team guys I’ve ever had,” OSU coach Jim Zalesky told Our Town. “If you could buy stock in him you would. When these kind of kids graduate you really miss what they meant to the team. He always battled and made the top guy (at his weight) better.” Tobin also faced some academic challenges before righting the ship. Early in his OSU career he was emphasizing wrestling instead of schoolwork and one day found himself sitting there with a 2.65 gradepoint average and his medical school dreams on the rocks. Tobin called it his “mid-college breakdown,” but with the help of his girlfriend at the time, who told him to believe in himself, Tobin battled his way back and achieved top academic standing on the wrestling squad. He consistently turned in a GPA above 3.5 and got a parttime job tutoring other student-athletes.

the reasons he is pursuing a career in physical therapy is because he has had so much experience with it. Roth tore a knee ligament before his junior year and broke his pelvis right before the end of school last year and also has two broken collarbones and a broken ankle. He’s planning to take the MCAT medical school qualifying exam June 1 and then will work during a “gap year” before heading to med school. He hopes to work in Izaak Tobin KARL MAASDAM the emergency field, citing the heartbreaking incident at Silverton in 2011 when a Dallas wrestler died on the mat after winning a match. “I want to have the knowledge and skills to make a difference in a situation like that,” said Tobin. Signings: All-state and all-state tournament performer Cade Roth has signed to play college basketball at Westmont in Montecito, California. Roth, a 6-5 senior, averaged 18 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game for the Foxes, who finished 25-2 and took fourth at the Class 5A state tournament. Roth also was Mid-Willamette Conference player of the year after leading Silverton to a perfect 14-0 league record. Westmont won out among six other California schools because of Roth’s liking for the Warriors’ coach, John Moore, and the school’s physical therapy program. Cade Roth told Our Town that one of

“I had physical therapy after every injury,” he said. “They helped me so much and I want to give back.” Luckily for the Foxes his injuries always took place away from the high school season. “In all four years of Silverton basketball I never missed a game.” Roth said, “but I missed 60 percent of my AAU games.”

Cade Roth Roth signed his letter to attend Westmont at an April 19 ceremony on campus that also featured five other Foxes. Spencer Clements and Kobe Garcia signed to play football at George Fox. Brooke McCarty (basketball) and Colton Meyer (baseball) are headed to Linfield. Cross country runner William Sisley will join Roth at Westmont.

Track and field: The Kennedy track program, a perennial contender at both the district and state level, has another fine crop of talent turning in top marks. Junior Hallie Sprauer, who transferred to Kennedy from Horizon Christian, broke the 20-year-old triple jump record by recording a 34-8 mark, more than a foot beyond the 1998 distance of 33-7 set by Renee Eder. Sprauer ranks No. 1 in Class 2A in the event while also participating in

the high jump, the 4x100 relay, the long jump and the discus. Also performing well for the girls squad are distance runner Alejandra Lopez, throwers Makayla Massey, Lilly English and Abby Frey, multievent standouts Emma Beyer and Hailey Arritola. Junior Lily Flud has soared 9-8 in the pole vault, 8 inches better than the school mark. Top boys performers include sprinters Emorej Lynk and Micah Porter, 400800 runners Jannick Schneider and Luke Hall, thrower Nick Suing and freshman vaulter Gianni Velazquez. The Trojans are missing some key pieces, however. Kaylin Cantu is sitting out the track and field season with knee problems, while promising hurdler Carlos Saravia is out with a dislocated shoulder. The injury bug also has hit the coaching staff. Steve Ritchie, in his 20th year with the program, is using a padded sling after recent surgery to repair a shoulder injury. Silverton, meanwhile, also has some athletes listed on the state charts. Savannah Reilly is tied for second in Class 5A in the high jump (5-2), while Natali Tomlin is fourth in the triple jump (3410), Jori Paradis is sixth in the 800 and the 4x400 relay squad of Paradis, Addie Schmitz, Katie Sinn and Ellie Schmitz ranks fourth. On the boys side Isaac Rush is fourth in the pole vault (13-9). Hospital run: The Silverton Heath Fun Runs are May 12, with the 1-mile kids run getting underway at 8 a.m. and the 5-kilometer run/walk at 8:45 a.m. The event, which goes back to 1983, charges $7 for the 1-miler and $17.50 for the 5K.

A Grin at the End

A scammer’s paradise

If it’s too good to be true... resist

My wife has been redecorating our living room. We figured we would sell the old furniture on Craigslist.

coming over to your location after you have the cash in hand.”

I took some photos and posted them on the website. Within a day, someone contacted my wife and said he would buy all of the furniture.

Uh-huh, and I have a bridge in Brooklyn that’s for sale, too. When I said “cash only” a second time, he vanished.

But there was a catch. He was out of town, so he would send a check and have “the movers” pick up the furniture. We would pay them and refund him the extra money from the check. We immediately recognized this as a scam. No one in his right mind would ever cook up a deal like that. Craigslist itself says any purchases should only be made in person and in cash. Just for kicks, we said OK to it, just to see how stupid this guy was. In a few days a check arrived in the mail. It was drawn on the payroll bank account of an Arizona school district. So, this guy was not only planning on ripping us off, but a school district, too. He would get a two-fer. My wife took it to the police department, and, one hopes, they passed it along to the FBI and the U.S. Postal Service, since this guy has broken federal laws pertaining to fraud, interstate theft, forgery and using

The scammers must sit at home all day and troll for victims. The sad part is I’m sure some people fall for it. After all, it seems legitimate, sort of. the mail to commit a felony. Hopefully, the feds will put this guy out of business and provide him with a new home in the Gray Bar Hotel. But get a load of this. Within a week two other people came along with exactly the same scam. Here’s the way one guy worked it: Scammer: “Hi, I saw the end table on CL. … I am OK with the price and will be sending you a check for the item and also for my movers whom will be coming for the pickup of the item. Get back to me with your full name and mailing address to get the check sent ASAP.” When I told him it was a cash deal only, he said, “You have nothing to worry about since my mover will be

But like all things that are too good to be true, scams are easy to resist. My suggestion: Call the cops. Hopefully, they’ll track down these bums and take care of them. What is ironic about this is Craigslist acknowledges it has a scam problem. It has an entire webpage devoted to how people rip off its customers and who to contact about it. Apparently, it’s not working. If our experience is any indication, plenty of scammers are still in business. Maybe the best idea is to steer clear of Craigslist altogether. You get what you pay for – with a few scams to boot. Carl Sampson is a freelance editor and writer.
