Something to think about

Retraining the brain By Kristine Thomas Silverton residents Janae Senter and Kristy Ward are diligently working to change the idea about what it means to have a fit and healthy body. They want people to stop thinking that being skinny and skimping on food to become thin is what’s healthy. Or the idea all women should look like super models, especially since those women make up a small percent of the population and the methods they use to become that thin aren’t always healthy. For Senter and Ward, being healthy means being strong. It’s about having a strong body, mind and soul and it’s about being confident in the body you have. “One thing we do is retrain the brain about how it thinks about what a healthy body is,” Ward said. They started Body Theory Fitness Studio in 2014 with a boot camp and recently opened a studio on First Street. They offer group fitness classes with

They also offer childcare. “The theory is simple,” according to their website. “Treat your body right and it will work the way it was intended. With proper nutrition and exercise you will change your shape, feel more alive and stronger.” Their ideas about being fit and healthy are resonating with their clients.

and push you to become better,” she said. “The instructors help you understand how to eat better and how to fuel your body to perform better.”

Kelly Piper, 38, has two children, ages 2 and 4 years old.

A triathlete, Lainie Pyper, 41, said the classes challenge all levels, from beginners to marathon runners.

“When my youngest child turned 1 years old, I was ready to work out but there was no place that offered childcare,” she said. “I enjoy coming here because the workouts are different and challenging and I leave feeling good about myself.” Piper said she has seen how much it means for other moms to have a place to workout, too. “I think it is so important we do things for ourselves as moms,” she said. “This allows us to do that.”

“There is something for everyone here,” she said. “The instructors know how to work with each individual.” More importantly, Pyper said there is a sense of “sisterhood. I couldn’t ask for better friends. I appreciate Janae and Kristy for setting great examples and for their knowledge. When they talk about the body, they emphasize having a healthy body.”

The mother of three children, Steffanie Hupp said she wouldn’t be able to workout if there wasn’t a place that offered childcare.

There’s another notion about fitness and healthy eating that Senter and Ward are trying to do away with is. It’s the idea that to be fit and healthy you have to be perfect – always eat healthy and never miss a scheduled workout.

“We all have bad days where we eat too many Oreos,” Ward added. “We tell women it’s OK if they mess up on eating healthy. They just need to try again tomorrow.”

“We don’t do the scale here. We encourage people to stay off of it because it’s mentally exhausting to play the scale game,” Senter said. “It’s not about pounds, it’s about losing inches.”

They recently held an 8-Weeks Back to Fit Challenge, encouraging healthy eating habits and exercise.

“Our goal is to teach lifestyle changes and habits,” Ward said. “We want people to know this is something they can do and stick with.”

“It taught us that you have your bad days, and you can get back at it the next day and move forward,” they shared on Facebook. “Not to feel guilty over that birthday treat or dinner date, that carbohydrates are a vital part to our nourishment and strength, as is enough calories! The most beautiful part is hearing from our group they were never hungry, always felt full and couldn’t believe how much they were eating.” They said on average a woman who works out should be consuming 1,800 to 2,200 calories a day of healthy food. During their fitness challenge, the group lost a

Something to celebrate

Silverton’s ambassador By Kristine Thomas To garner an understanding of how humble Stacy Palmer is, let’s start with the fact she had absolutely no clue she was about to receive the Oregon State Chamber Executive Director of the Year award on Oct. 29 at The Oregon Garden. She didn’t hear the giggling, the quiet banter or even loud whispering of about 50 friends and family standing in the hallway outside the banquet hall where she was attending the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce awards banquet. She was worried about a friend. She thought the 2015 award was for Keizer Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Christine Dieker, who had stepped out of the room. “I kept hoping she would return quickly,” Palmer said. It wasn’t until Redmond Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Eric Sande announced her name that she realized she was being honored. When she saw her fans cheering for her in the back of the room, she was overwelmed. The long hours as the chamber’s executive director for 15 years, the hard work had meant something. “It’s very humbling to receive the award,” Palmer said. “Not only does the award recognize me but it honors all the board members who have served the last 15 years,

all the people who have served on various chamber committees and all the community members who have supported the chamber.”

than Stacy. She always promotes Silverton – when she is working and even when she is on her own time.  Silverton is near and dear to her heart.”

A friend and former chamber board president, Nicole Kay orchestrated the surprise for Palmer and coordinated the 45-letters sent in with Palmer’s nomination. The letters came from community members and business leaders, both locally and around the state. Kay’s letter shared how Palmer’s involvement in Silverton extends far beyond chamber business and how she lends a hand whenever and wherever needed. Palmer said the letters are what she treasures the most.

Chamber board member Dixon Bledsoe said Palmer always knows what is working around the state for chambers and always seems to be on the cutting edge.

Travel Oregon CEO Todd Davidson wrote “Stacy epitomizes the heart and soul of her community for residents and visitors from across the country and around the world and her calm demeanor, focused intellect and affable personality make her a sought out and valued addition to any endeavor.” Silverton Mayor Rick Lewis said the relationship between city government and the chamber of commerce is one of the most important any city can have.
 “Stacy clearly cares a great deal about Silverton and it has consistently been reflected in her work as our chamber director,” Lewis said. “Her award was well-deserved and I can think of no better ambassador in our community

“She doesn’t get enough credit,” Bledsoe said. “Silverton is visible on the state and national front, a nice place to visit for tourists, and exudes charm. Much of the credit is attributed to Stacy and her leadership skills.” Chamber Board President Josiah Kelley said Palmer deserves thr award not only for her “tireless hours and never ending schedule of meetings to attend, not to mention greeting visitors to our town through the visitor center, but for the spirit in which she does all of this.” At the chamber conference, Palmer was also installed as the state president of the association. “Her additional role in the state chamber of commerce goes unannounced to most, but spotlights our community on a bigger stage,” Kelley said. “Stacy pursues greatness for Silverton. Most of the time her reward is in the journey on the road towards more visitors, more commerce, new businesses. Today, we all got a moment to applaud and say thank you for jobs well done.”

Funny business

Career in comics and animation started with laughter

By Tanner Russ

Foster graduated from art school with a BFA in film. After a few years in the business, he published his Myron Moose Funnies in 1970 as an underground comic book. That led to a job offer from Marvel, where he wrote and drew for Crazy Magazine and created The Evolution and History of Moosekind. That turned into working for Disney.

Bob Foster has led a storied life. He’s worked for Hanna-Barbera Productions, Marvel Comics and Disney Studios. His list of job titles have included layout artist, writer, artist and editor. Foster has seen and done a lot in the animation and comic book business. There were several inspirations that pushed Foster towards the life of animation and story-telling. They started, as most things do, in childhood. “It was there early on,” Foster said. “I read the comic strips, comic books but not the superhero stuff, maybe Superman and Batman but not more than that. I really liked the funny animal comics, Disney animals, Barney Bear, Pogo, Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge, all that funny animal stuff really struck a chord with me.” A family friend encouraged Foster to pursue comic book writing. “I had some comic books that I did when I was 10 years old, and there was a friend of my mother’s who was absolutely delighted and laughed a lot at everything I did. It wasn’t that funny, but she was very encouraging,” Foster said. “I think she had a lot to do with it. ” Foster studied at Chouinard Art Institute.

For Foster, it wasn’t about where he worked, it was about the people he worked with. “Throughout my career, I’ve always gone to where the people are that I like,” Foster said. “I like the work, but you got to like the people.” Bob Foster shows his portfolio of comic book sketches and covers, including “Disney’s DuckTales”.

“I wanted to be a magazine illustrator,” he said. “It was serious and nobody was laughing and everybody was trying to make things perfect and it was boring. “The guys in the classroom next to me were laughing and having a good time, looking at movies and drawing cartoons. So I snuck in there and started hanging out with them. They were going into animation.”


Now open in Silverton 205 OAK STREET SUITE A

The highlight of his career was going back to where it all began. “Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories, Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge, and DuckTales, I edited those four titles, three of them were the major influence on my childhood which led me to a career in comics and animation. To wind up working at Disney’s was, ‘Why me?’” said Foster. “To wind up editing those three titles, of all the people on the planet that could have that job, it was me. Wow. And I’m still proud of that.”

It's one thing to have friends, it's another to have people appreciate what you do. It's also another to have the respect of your peers....and get elected to lead their organization. It's quite another to be chosen the best of the best. Join The Man in congratulating Silverton's own Stacy Palmer, recently chosen as the Chamber of Commerce Executive Director of the Year for the entire state of Oregon... The only question left is.... what took them so long?!? Speaking of do gooders doing good.... local insurance tycoon James Dooley recently noticed a fellow restaurant patron having difficulty breathing. Sir James, quickly figuring that if anyone need an insurance policy, it was this guy, jumped into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver repeatedly until the offending blockage was cleared and most likely saved his life. The man, who was visiting our fair city from London, was so appreciative that he insisted on buying James's lunch the next day... They had soup.... The Man's useless fact of the month: 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321 The new MaPS Credit Union location is all finished and ready to go as soon as the two communications companies involved communicate and stop pointing their collective fingers squarely at each other... and on a side note, the clock that for many years adorned the building they are leaving will be incorporated in the signage for the new facility, much to the relief of a whole generation of locals that would never get anywhere on time without it.... In this day and age of seemingly disposable relationships it's particularly heartening to see a couple that does it right. Join The Man in saluting Mount Angel's Connie and Jerry Lauzon for inspiring us with their 50 years of wedded bliss. First the “Danger Hill” sign went missing and now some rapscallion went and stole the South Water Street

sign marking the spot of the 45th parallel (½ way between the equator and the North Pole).... Said miscreant has not been caught but we can only hope they are being punished in a parallel universe somewhere.... Local celebrity and artist Ann Altman, will soon be unveiling her new art placement in front of Columbia Bank... because as they say, “earth” without “art” leaves you with “eh”.... and “bank” without “bk” leaves you with “An(n)”... or something like that.... A few weeks ago a large truck pulled up to the Appeal Tribune offices on South Water Street, loaded the computers, desks and chairs and quietly vacated the building it had occupied in Silverton for decades. Now you'd probably think “Hey there Mister The Man, your competition just moved out of town, you must be thrilled”.... but you'd be wrong. You see, years ago many of us poured our heart and soul into that paper to make it what a community newspaper should be and it was only when it became apparent that the previous “powers that be” weren't going to allow us to do that that we packed up our pencils and started Our Town, which wouldn't exist otherwise. The current “powers that be” at the Statesman Journal say that although the office has closed, the Appeal will continue and I hope it does, 'cause even after 134 years, there’s still a role for a traditional, small town weekly newspaper... and it would truly be a shame if it dies ...

She moved from Africa to Silverton in 1990. The move to Oregon, she said, was partially in response a request from her daughter, Joy Peterson, who lives in Scotts Mills. She was concerned about her mother and stepfather living so far away. The move didn’t go as smoothly as they hoped. Lyn’s husband, Beris, didn’t get the papers he needed to settle in Silverton. For three years, he could be six months in the country and six months out or be considered an illegal immigrant. He lived six-months here, six months out of country until the paperwork was in order. This meant months of living alone for Lyn. While living in Botswana, Lyn wrote letters to her five children. Some of those letters, her memories, and 20 years of writing yielded her memoir, Give Thanks. It was published this fall by Tate Publishing. “I only told the stories of my life that would make the reader laugh. I chose not to write about the dark parts because there is only so much you can cry,” she said. “I began writing my stories because I realized I have a good memory.” Pat says Lyn as a member of the writing class for six years. She was delighted when she saw Lyn’s book. “I was so impressed by her experiences and I helped her see the significance of what has happened during her life,” Pat said.

Give Thanks Born in 1928 in the Chiswick District of London, Silverton resident Lyn Brickles shares her adventures growing up during World War II in England, moving to and living in Botswana and finally settling in Silverton. Her book Give Thanks is a collection of stories. It can be ordered on During the holidays, she encourages families to share their own stories, either through writing or recordings. showing each student that they were unique and all had stories worth telling. “I told them no one has been through an experience like you have,” she said. “Each person brings their own thoughts and feelings to an experience.” Describing Lyn as a “remarkable person,” Pat said Lyn’s stories show her insight on how she dealt with the tough and good times in her life and how she was sensitive and kind to others. “What has always impressed me is the way you treated everyone with respect and compassion and understanding,” Pat wrote in a card to Lyn. Recovering from surgery, Lyn apologized for not serving tea and cakes during an interview on recent November afternoon. Although excited to see her stories published, she is humble about the accomplishment. Her five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren live all over the world. “I don’t know where they get their sense of adventure,” she said with a mischievous grin. She took delight when they said they didn’t know she had done this or that. That could be anyone of an array of adventures: escaping to a “cupboard” under the stairwell during bombing raids in London, swimming across the Thames River, living in Africa while Beris helped build a power plan in the Kalahari Desert, or being welcomed as English immigrants to Silverton.

Lyn Brickles shares her stories Chatterley’s Lover and with the tutoring of a “five to six pound dictionary,” she read the book, looking up anything she didn’t understand. “So this plain little girl with her pudding basin cut, brown hair got herself educated by reading continuously, repeatedly and obsessively that old book...,” she wrote. Her natural curiosity continued throughout her life, she said, inspiring her to learn all she could – except to use a computer. All her stories are handwritten in capital letters. “Computers absolutely hate me. They go broken if I try to use one.”

Lyn Brickles, and her book

She’s grateful for her husband’s support for her writing and for enduring the countless stories she tells on their adventures.

Her book also includes stories of discovering the source of the “screams,” chickens in the attic, and the antics of an array of animals, including two spoiled dogs, cats and goats.

They have been friends for 45 years and married for 38 years, she added.

Lyn encourages everyone to write their stories or to share their stories with friends and family members. “I think when we share our stories we are teaching other people about what happened in the past,” she said. “Everybody has a story to tell.” Known to some as a perfect hostess and as the “Queen Mum” by her family, her book reveals an adventurous spirit. “I think I have adventures come to me,” Lyn said. Her love of reading started early – her father’s library had thousands of books. Even now, at any time she may be in the midst of reading two or three. Lyn shared a story about her father’s library. She recalls reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin when she was seven. When she was 9 or 10, she did a bit of eavesdropping to learn why she was being banned from entering the library without his consent. She heard her parents discussing a book covered with brown wrapping. “I think I was a sneaky kids. No, I am sure I was and I didn’t miss many tricks,” she wrote. She discovered the forbidden book Lady

“We were driving back from the Oregon Coast and I saw a road sign that read, Tom Jack Road and I started making up a story about it,” she said. “My dear husband has to put up with me and my made up stories.”

With an envelope filled with quotes and scraps of paper with notes, Lyn plans to keep writing. She attends the monthly writing group at the Silver Falls Library on the first and third Thursdays. She also wants to record her book. “I think when I read them out loud, I put some character into them,” she said. Joy said she knew many of the stories her mother shared, but those from childhood held some surprises. “I knew she was a tomboy and a magnificent swimmer,” she said. She’s proud her mother has published her collection. “My mother is unique in so many ways,” Joy said. “She has a genuine good sense of humor and that shows up in her writing.” Lyn never learned to drive, so Joy takes her to the Silver Falls Library. “I don’t think there is a book in the Silver Falls Library that my mother hasn’t read twice,” she said. For Lyn, she hopes her stories make the reader giggle or laugh and shows them some insight into another person’s life. “If I didn’t write my stories, I knew I would regret it,” she said.

The transfer “Living in Portland was a bit of a shock,” Crist told Our Town in an interview after a recent practice. “I wanted a little bit of a change and a different campus feel. (Silverton) Coach (John) Mannion had some connections down here, and I’m super happy with my decision. It’s exactly what I was looking for.” Crist is the lone player among the Silverton three who has seen action this season. Crist kicked off against Weber State and is listed as the second-team place-kicker behind sophomore Garrett Owens. “My best opportunity to get on the field will be the kickoff role,” Crist said. “That’s what I’m shooting for.” A big plus for Crist has been the facilities and staff upgrade he found by moving from PSU to the Beavers. “When I was at PSU I had to shag my own balls after kicking,” he said. “Here we have an equipment staff that throws them back to you. We’ve got an indoor facility. PSU didn’t have that. I have three fields here plus the stadium. PSU had just one field and they share it with other teams and intramurals. When I wanted to go out and kick field goals there would be ultimate frisbee and soccer players on the field. We kind of have free reign here. It’s so different.”

Three on the Oregon State football roster Kuschnick said the time commitment was the biggest adjustment he had to make. “After 12 (when practice ends) I have the playbook to study and school. It’s more like a job. But it’s going really good. My classes are good. My grades are good.” “Everybody wants to be a starter,” he noted when asked about his prospects for playing time. “I’d like to get in on special teams. That’s my goal.” Like Crist, Kuschnick found the facilities and support staff at OSU to be an eyeopener. “There are all kinds of advantages,” he said while holding a helmet stuffed with a protein shake and two bottles of Gatorade. “There are so many people to help you with nutrition and weight training.”

The tryout Dahl did not play much his senior year at Silverton High School in 2014 because of injuries. He moved on to Oregon State to begin studying kinesiology. “But I didn’t let go of that dream.” Dahl started working out and gaining some weight back, and then heard about the Labor Day tryout, where more than 50 individuals sought spots on the squad.

“I’m adjusting really well,” he said. “The coaches have been fantastic.” Dahl, like Kuschnick, is a redshirt. He cited the speed of the game and turning out late as his biggest challenges. “It doesn’t get much bigger than the Pac12,” he said. “That was a dream of mine growing up and watching Oregon State and Oregon. It’s really special to be able to play here.”

Historic season

SHS volleyball makes Elite 8 after 40-year drought

The Silverton High volleyball program turned in its finest season in 40 years. The Foxes, who finished second in the Mid-Willamette Conference, advanced to the state tournament with a 3-0 win vs. The Dalles on Oct. 31. At state the Foxes fell to eventual state champion Summit High School of Bend in the quarterfinals and lost a hardfought five-set match to Ashland in the consolation round. The final eight appearance was the best showing for Silverton since 1975. “This was such a great season,” Coach Jill Walker told Our Town. “The Lady Foxes worked hard and accomplished great things. I’m so very proud of these ladies!” Silverton, which finished 16-9, placed three players on the first and second teams in the MWC. Kayce McLaughlin was a first-team outside hitter, while middle blocker Olivia Pavlicek and setter Ally Fennimore were placed on the second team. Honorable mention went to Maggie Buckholz – outside hitter, Rachel Renfrow – middle blocker, Megan Mannion – libero, and Annika Gulstrom – outside hitter. “We are loosing two seniors, Ally Fennimore and Rachel Renfrow (middle blocker),” Walker said. “Both played a key role in our success this season. Rachel had some of the best play of her season during the state tournament. She really stepped up and fought for her team. Ally’s sets and court awareness are going to a challenge to replace. Both are great girls and will be missed.” Kennedy, meanwhile, finally figured out how to deal with league rival St. Paul and rode that success all the way to the state semifinals. The Trojans, who lost to the Buckaroos twice early in the Tri-River season, downed St. Paul on the final day of the regular season Oct. 27 and then took out the Buckaroos in the Nov. 6 quarterfinals at the Class 2A tournament at Ridgeview High in Redmond. The Trojans, in their first year under coach Jessica Schmidtman, fell to eventual champion Burns in the semifinals and finished fifth overall. It was the third consecutive year that Kennedy, which finished 24-7, has placed at state, following a fifth-place finish in 2014 and a fourth in 2013. Junior Lakin Susee was named to the second team on the all-tournament squad

The Silverton Boys Cross Country Team placed eighth in state and Maddie Fuhrman took fifth overall in the women’s race.

Cross country: Silverton’s Maddie Fuhrman finished fifth in the girls race and the boys team turned in the best performance by a Foxes squad since 1991 at the Oct. 31 OSAA state championships at Lane Community College in Eugene. Fuhrman, a senior, ran 18:54 to score the highest placing of her high school career and equal the highest placing for a Silverton runner at state since 1985.

The Kennedy High School cross country team had a strong performance at the state meet. Above: girls team. Below: JFK boys team.

“I’m happy with the way I ran although I wish the race had gone differently,” Fuhrman said. “But I’m really happy with fifth place. And it was really cool to see the boys run so well and finish so high.” Freshman Haile Stutzman was the highest finisher for the eighth-place boys, running 17:12 to finish 39th. Also scoring for the Foxes were Sam Roth (47th, 17:28), Wolfgang Seifer (48th, 17:29), Anthony Eubank (59th, 18:02) and Hosea Catterall (63rd, 18:12).

and I was really impressed with how we competed,” Trojans Coach Steve Ritchie told Our Town.

“She is one of the most dedicated student-athletes I’ve coached,” he said. “As accomplished as she is athletically she is equally exceptional as a teammate.”

Also scoring for the girls were Clarissa Traeger (46th, 22:41), Ysenia Gomez (64th, 24:01) and Gabriela Cortes (75th, 25:01. Backing up Parra for the boys were Kyle Kinyon (57th, 18:44), Noe Jines (59th, 18:47), Brandon Salazar (79th, 19:24) and Brandon Rendon (97th, 20:24).

Parra missed breaking his school record by just three seconds, Ritchie said “Adrian’s consistency and big-race performance over the past four years stamps him as the top distance guy in my tenure.”

Kennedy also turned in an excellent

“They should be very proud of themselves as I am,” Silverton Coach Erik Cross told Our Town. “The future looks bright and the program is growing.” Cross also had strong praise for Fuhrman, who set a school of 18:38 for 5,000 meters earlier this season.

Ritchie noted that the girls squad featured four first-year runners and with Cantu just a sophomore, the future looks bright.

after helping lead Silverton to a secondplace finish in the conference. Silverton lost to La Salle Prep 3-0 in the round of 16 of the Class 5A playoffs. The Falcons play for a state title this weekend. Silverton’s Hailey Satyna and Lizzy Roth were named to the MWC first team, with Hannah Munson, Heidi Moore and Maggie Roth earning spots on the second team. Honorable mention went to Caitlin Keating and Hannah Doyle. “Sometimes you bite the bear and sometimes the bear bites you,” Foxes Coach Gary Cameron told Our Town after the loss to La Salle. Cameron and assistant coach Fred George led Silverton to back-to-back runner-up finishes in the Mid-Willamette Conference and the final 16 both years. “It ends like this for every team but one, but we thought we would last a little longer,” Cameron said. “It’s the destination, not the journey,” said Baylie Cameron. “This team has been through a lot together. We’re all for each other and there is no drama. We look out for each other on and off the field.” “It’s been amazing to be part of this team,” said Satyna, a senior. “We’re so close, it’s kind of like we’re a family.” Meanwhile, the Foxes’ boys soccer team also had a strong season. Silverton took third in the Mid-Willamette and won its playoff opener 1-0 against North Eugene before falling on the road to Hood River Valley 1-0 in the round of 16 to finish 7-6-3. Hood River also is in the championship match in 5A. Ethan Crofts, Chase Ellis and goalkeeper Ethan Risby were first-team all-MWC selections for the Foxes. Crofts led the team in scoring with 10 goals. Risby turned in four shutouts and 97 saves. Kirk Martinson and Jonathan Reyna made the second team. Honorable mention went to Isaac Doyle and Aiden Bahr. “We had a very successful season on and off the field,” Coach Kyle Calder said. “I couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished. Making it to the playoffs and earning a winning record were two big goals for us this season and we accomplished them. I am excited for the future of Silverton soccer.” Football: Kennedy, which tied Regis and Central Linn for first place in the

Tri-River Conference, earned seven spots on the all-league first team. Running back Bishop Mitchell and lineman Jeremy Kliewer were named on offense, with defensive backs Mitchell and Brett Traeger linebackers Dylan Arritola and Owen Seiler and kicker/punter Angel Mendez selected on defense. Mitchell was a unanimous pick on offense and Traeger and Arritola were unanimous choices on defense. In addition, second year Trojans coach Joe Panuke shared coach of the year honors with Dusty Burchfield of Central Linn and Kyle McGrath of Regis. Traeger (quarterback), Seiler (wide receiver), Arritola (tight end), running back Jacob Lopez and linemen Enrique Larios and Davi Soto were on the second-team offense. Tom Schmdt and Mendez (defensive back) and lineman Kliewer made second-team defense. The Trojans opened Class 2A playoff action with a 53-12 thumping of Irrigon on Nov. 6. Kennedy, ranked No. 4, hosted No. 6 Burns at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 after Our Town’s presstime. Silverton, meanwhile, ended its season at 5-5 after a 45-0 Class 5A playoff loss at Crater in Central Point. The Foxes fell behind 28-0 in the first 10 minutes and suffered another injury in an injuryriddled season, this time to emerging running back standout Perry Davis. “We gave it our best,” Foxes Head Coach John Mannion told the Medford MailTribune. “Things kind of got away from us, but it was caused by them. They won the game fair and square. I think they’ll go a long way.” Silverton, which had to battle back from a three-game losing streak, won its final two Mid-Willamette Conference games to finish in a three-way tie for third and advanced to the playoffs via tiebreakers. The Foxes earned four first-team spots on the all-MWC team: running back Noah Dahl, defensive lineman Jose Diaz and offense linemen Brett Miller and Owen Koger. Davis was a secondteamer at running back and defensive back, joined by punter Ian Woolsey and offensive lineman Dustin Gubbels. Honorable mention awards went to David Espe, defensive lineman; Brett Miller, defensive lineman; Ian Woolsey, linebacker; Ben Biben, linebacker, and Elijah Nielsen, tight end.

To not help is not an option . . . Thanksgiving is almost here and there are many things to be thankful for including my wife and family and the love and support they give me. Thankful, also, that my mother is now here instead of San Antonio so my stress meter has taken a nosedive. And my business partner, Lisa Santana, is a calm harbor in an often beautiful but sometimes stormy sea. We live in a special place where people like James Dooley calmly saves the life of a visiting London businessman before going back to his Pad Thai. Heimlich Maneuver training proved useful for James, co-owner of Larsen Flynn insurance last month. Londoner George Kean, Ph.D. was the lucky and grateful beneficiary. As the lifesaver stated, “Dr. Kean took me to lunch the next day to thank me. We had soup.” Way to go, J.D. This is a town where a stranger unexpectedly cleaned Becky Ludden’s gutters on a rainy Halloween night and didn’t even leave his name. Halloween was a terrible torrential typhoon. A man was taking his son on the hunt for candy while his wife waited in the car. When Becky opened the door and handed out treats, the gentleman noticed her gutters were plugged and spewing buckets of water on unsuspecting passersby. He told her if she had a ladder, he would clean out her gutters. She retrieved one, thankful “for the kindness of strangers,” and he unclogged the gutter. He and his son left to further fight

it did. Natasha thanked him a dozen times. He added, “To not help is not an option.” No recognition or thanks needed. I don’t know this guy, but I like him.

the elements all in the name of Candy Corn. As Becky says, “He couldn’t have known how perfect his timing was since I could never have climbed a ladder given some recent medical issues. My son Trevor said it perfectly “What is so cool is he didn’t even mention his name or look for thanks.” Thanks, Mr. No-Name. What a gift. Natasha Rowland, administrator of the Silver Falls Volleyball club, is thankful to an anonymous man who heard some kids wanted to play but didn’t have the money. Going on to Silverton Connections via Facebook, she advertised the club, which gives kids an early start on the skills necessary to be competitive in high school. Many parents responded, but some were unable to pay. In steps the gentleman who wanted to donate toward club fees, saying, “I am fortunate enough to be able to help. I would like my support to go directly to the athlete.” And

It did my heart good to see the marching band in its gorgeous new uniforms at the Foxes’ football game against Dallas. The band played Gimme Some Lovin’ and the Silverton Fight song, and the performance was impeccable. Their formations were tight, the music great, and just seeing the fruition of their hard work and the generous nature of a community that contributed $37,000 to purchase new uniforms and some instruments made me extremely proud. This town should be thankful that Frank Petrick, the director, made it happen and that we now have a marching band that is darn good and looks even better. Thanks to Bob Knoedel for his help with the kids. Special thanks to the drum major, who is my multitalented niece, Ally Schmidt, a senior who, in uniform for the first and perhaps last time, lead her music makers like a pro. Gotta love Carson Ortega, a cool young man who made that cow bell sizzle but is probably a bit too young to remember a Saturday Night Live skit and understand my need for more cowbells. What struck me most, even beyond a 28-0 rout of our arch rival Dallas, catapulting the Foxes into the playoffs, were the faces of the kids. Pure joy, pure pride, and their moment to shine. That they did.
