Something to Think About

A global message By Melissa Wagoner

Silverton takes part in world-wide ‘Climate Strike’

across the US – was inspired by Swedish environmental activist, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg.

An estimated 200 activists gathered in Silverton’s Town Square Park on Friday, Sept. 20 for what they hope will be the first of many Climate Strike Protests.

“[A]fter recovering from a year of depression that her future was being stolen from her and nobody was acting, [Thunberg] decided to strike from school,” Brown described. “She asked; why should I study for a future that won’t be there? She inspired millions of students around the world.”

“This is a global event, with strikes occurring in Salem, Corvallis, Eugene, and many other towns throughout Oregon and throughout the world,” 43 year-old mother of two Elyce Brown said prior to the event. “This is an open discussion and we welcome all voices to the table that are contributing to a solution and moving us towards a sustainable future. Regardless of what anyone thinks about climate change, we’re all smart enough to know that the world has finite resources and we are burning through them way too fast. We are stealing from future generations; it isn’t fair. We know it, and we know it’s up to us to stop it.” The movement on Sept. 20 – which was a global phenomenon, with millions taking to the streets in Europe, Asia and

The inspiration and support of students was heard time and again throughout the Climate Strike event. “In 1970 I was there at the first Earth Day,” Simon, a former Silvertonian, recalled in his speech. “That first day the teachers led their children out of the classrooms. And they’re doing it again. Power to the people, especially the young ones.” Others joined Simon, taking up the mic for off-the-cuff addresses. “I think what I see that concerns me is

that 65 to 75 percent agree that there is global warming but how many have done anything?” Paul, who moved to Silverton four years ago, asked. “Now would be a great time to do something. Or, if you have done something, now would be a great time to do more.” Reaching out to citizens who do not believe in climate change was a thread that ran through the entire Climate Strike event – on posters, in speeches and on the minds of those who attended.

“We believe in climate change,” Deborah Crough, a former science teacher said when asked why she was at the event. “We believe in the science. The concept’s been around long enough. I first learned about the science behind it in 1987 at Berkeley. When there’s bona fide, peerreviewed science it just boggles my mind.”

weren’t entirely focused on the negative. Many speakers voiced hope and even pride in the steps being taken within Silverton to address climate change issues. “I’ve been here three years and I think it’s an amazing small town,” Karen Garst a member of Sustainable Silverton and one of the principle organizers of the event said.

Activists singing at Silverton’s Climate Strike.

“I would just like the non-believers to get on board,” fellow protester Debby Crews finished, adding in a hopeful tone. “But I think it might take hold because the young people are involved.” Those young people were in attendance, voicing – if not anger, then at least deepseated concern.

Sustainable Silverton is a group providing resources related to sustainability and host of the Climate Strike. It recently submitted an energy plan to the Silverton City Council for approval. It can be viewed in its entirety at www. sustainablesilverton.org.

MELISSA WAGONER

“Global warming is a huge problem,” 12 year-old, Jack White said. “And the people in charge don’t care about future generations and their problems.” His younger sister, nine year-old Helena, agreed adding, “Older generations think other people will fix it.” But attendees of the Climate Strike

“There is now an effort within the city,” Charles Baldwin, also a member of Sustainable Silverton, said of the plan’s approval. “Now it is up to you and I, citizens of Silverton. And I’m hopeful that all of you will join us in this effort.” Garst added, “We’re just really pleased with what the city did. They’ve just been incredibly supportive. I’m just really impressed.”

But, although action is being taken within the city – a recent ban on plastic bags and the ratification of a Neighborhood Association plan among them – Silvertonians still have a long way to go according to student speaker. Orion said, “Today marks a day where we put our foot down. It is time that we, as a community, are not going to support our children learning that climate change is a myth. It is your responsibility to go out and be responsible consumers, to avoid plastics and only get what you need.” Fellow student speaker Dakota echoed these sentiments, adding, “The biggest part that I can draw from this rally is, little by little, we’re making this world a better place. That’s what we need to do. “Climate change is big but it’s something that is not going to stop unless we act. Education is our biggest weapon. Educate yourself, educate others and keep doing this.”

Johnny’s Barber Shop welcomes new barber Connor Duerst, who graduated from Silverton High School in 2017 and attended Chemeketa for a time, is now operating the second chair at Johnny’s Barber Shop in downtown Silverton. He graduated from the Johnny Matthew’s Barber School program in August. Duerst decided he wanted to come back and serve his community, so taking over the second chair at Johnny’s, 204 Oak St., seemed like a perfect fit.  Since he started there the shop has extended its hours to include Saturdays 8 a.m. to noon. He also works Tuesday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. His family, who shared the news, is excited to see him start his own business and happy that he explored career choices he can share in the community.

A Slice of the Pie

A little help...

The fine art of the delegation

Delegation. Not my strong suit. Many years ago when I worked as assistant manager for a retail clothing store it was the number one critique on my yearly review time and again. I just felt I could get things done faster and better if I did them myself. I still do. Fast forward any number of years and now I have three people working directly under me – or not working as the case may be. Sure they are only three, eight and ten but – as my husband often helpfully points out – they are more than capable of doing any number of the chores that I complain about not having the time to do on a daily basis. I do see his point, but it can feel like a whole other kind of chore to teach someone else the fine art of folding the laundry, vacuuming the carpet... and don’t even get me started on loading the dishwasher. That’s something even people who work together like a well-oiled machine most days can’t get right. 

Why bother delegating? • Instills a sense of importance But I’m trying. I’ve made a list of simple tasks that need to be done every day – laundry, dishwasher, weeding – and I make an attempt at holding them accountable for getting them done. And honestly, on the days when I let them do what I know they are capable of – sure things are a little less neat and tidy, but were they really going to be that much better if I did it myself? Well, maybe a little. But I sure feel a heck of a lot better with a semi-clean house and a little more time on my hands to devote to other things. Like writing this column.

• Teaches responsibility and independence • Creates work ethic • Reduces entitlement • Promotes cooperation • Spreads the workload

Suggested chores by age The list builds as they grow – teenagers should be capable of handling the entire chore list. Two - three year-olds • Make bed

• Take out trash • Load and unload dishwasher • Fold and put away laundry

• Pick up

Nine - 12 year-olds • Wash the car

• Put laundry away

• Wash dishes

• Feed pets

• Prepare simple meals

• Dust and clean windows

• Clean bathrooms

• Sweep and mop

• Laundry

Four - five year-olds       • Set the table

13 - 18 year-olds • Clean out refrigerator other appliance maintenance

• Help with cooking • Put away groceries Six - eight year-olds • Vacuum and mop

• Rake leaves

• Prepare grocery list

See, it’s a win-win!

Fifth Annual

Leslie (“Les”) Roy Aubrey, loving husband and father, passed away on Feb. 2, 2019, at the age of 75 at his home in Silverton due to complications following surgery. He was born on Dec. 24, 1943, to Roy Ray and Mina Leslie (Pedigo) Aubrey of Central Howell. Les married Carol Ann Johnson of Dayton, Oregon, on Sept. 7, 1963, at Fort Myer, Virginia where they were both serving with the United States Army. They raised two sons, Leslie Scott and Clayton Roy. Les served in the Army from 1962-1982, serving three tours of duty in Viet Nam. After retiring from the Army, Les worked as a civilian computer security specialist for the United States Navy from 1983-2004. Les and Carol lived in Honolulu, Hawaii from 1977-2004, moving to Silverton in 2005 to be near grandchildren. Les always had a passion for sports and developed a special love for the game of soccer. He coached girls with the Honolulu Bulls Soccer Club from 1984-2004. Many of his players went on to play at the college level, several played professionally and some played on the U.S. Women’s National team. Upon moving to Silverton, he coached various soccer venues, including the Y Middle School program, the Silver Falls Soccer Club and the Silverton High School girls JV soccer team.

of years, bless her heart. She loved it,” Huddleston smiled. Born and raised in Silverton, Huddleston, 64, left home at 18 to attend college – in Austria. What propelled her to such a golden opportunity was a teacher in Salem who taught her how to play the organ. “He had the connections over there, so I went and studied for two years at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Then I came back and finished my undergraduate degree at Hartt School of Music

in Connecticut at the University of Hartford,” she explained, adding that she earned her undergraduate degree in organ and liturgical music, and her master’s in piano accompanying. She also plays the harpsichord. “Both of my parents loved music. Mom’s dad taught steel guitar, and my mom had taken violin. My dad played piano, harmonica and guitar – all from ear – and used to play for dances in Silverton in the old days. I was doing ballet and tap dancing. In the second grade, I chose to

In addition to performing twice at the White House, she has accompanied choirs on European tours, and in choir festivals.

The Forum

Consider a neighborhood association Did you get the notice about the workshop for disaster planning? Did you hear about the changes the City of Silverton is making in its zoning codes? Did you hear about the planned development right next to you? If your answer is no, then read on.

Several of these voluntary associations already exist

While Silverton is a small town, it is still easy to miss important issues that arise. The solution? How about a neighborhood association? On Sept. 9 the City of Silverton adopted a neighborhood association policy. In 2010, there were several studies conducted about the idea of creating neighborhood associations. This issue was revised by a small group of citizens and proposed to the city this summer. The city is willing to have a link on its website to these associations so that they can easily be informed of issues that arise that might concern them. The associations in turn would inform their members.

The city is also willing to consider appointing a Neighborhood Association Ombudsperson to assist in forming neighborhood associations and serve as a liaison to the city. This would be a volunteer position. The City council will likely solicit candidates for this position at a later date and appoint the most appropriate person to work directly with the associations and the city.

These would be voluntary associations and not governed by the City of Silverton. They would be established by a group of neighbors who desire to come together to discuss issues affecting their neighborhood, serve as a forum for common interests, or even to simply be a way for neighbors to meet and get to know each other.

in neighborhoods such as Mill Town and Silver Cliff Mobile Home Park. It is estimated that around 100150 households would be an appropriate size for a neighborhood association.

We would like you to be part of this citizen involvement effort by getting together with your neighbors to form an association. You can contact us and one of us will come to your first meeting to assist you. We have established an email address – silvertonneighborhoods@gmail.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Jim Squires at 503-400-8977 or jdsquires@wavecable.com. We look forward to hearing from you! James Squires Charles Baldwin Karen Garst

Academic standout

Foxes lineman earns national honor

Silverton High senior Spencer Von Flue finished in the 97th percentile among those students nationwide who took the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/ National Merit Qualifying Test. He is the senior class president, a member of the Key Club and a participant in the school’s National Honor Society chapter. And his class schedule is riddled with Advance Placement Classes. Von Flue’s performance in the PSAT earned him a letter of commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Von Flue was the lone Silverton High student to receive such an honor. Oh, and he also plays a little football. Von Flue is the starting center on a Foxes offensive line that has opened the holes for Silverton to rush for more than 200 yards in all three of its games, wins against Central, South Albany and Lebanon that have the Foxes sitting atop the Class 5A rankings. But it’s always student first with Von Flue, who can cite the statistics on how many high school athletes play college sports and how many of those play professionally. “Being smart and knowledgeable will take you farther and longer than if you are just an athlete,” Von Flue told Our Town. Von Flue, who credits his parents with encouraging him to work hard, said “I’ve always pushed myself to be the best. It’s a pride thing. If you are good at something why not try to be the best. I want to work hard at everything I do and be the best I can be.” Von Flue is hoping to study chemical engineering in college, although he also

is looking at mechanical and nuclear engineering. “Last year I took chemistry and I loved it,” Von Flue said. “I like working with chemicals and I’ve always been good at math. I like the idea of being able to create things with chemicals.” Among the colleges Von Flue is considering are Oregon State, Montana State, Colorado School of Mines and the University of Washington. He says it is unlikely he will pursue football in college. Administrators, coaches and fellow football players rave about Von Flue. Principal Wade Lockett: “We are fortunate to have a student like Spencer that gets involved and works as hard as he does to set a great example for this peers.” Football coach and Key Club adviser Josh Craig: “Spencer is the kind of kid every coach wants to have on their team. He’s the smartest player on the field. He’s tough, he’s poised, and he never seeks recognition. As the center he’s the natural leader of our offensive line, but he’s one of the leaders on the team as a whole as well.” On Sept. 20, Silverton drove 97 yards in 16 plays to score the winning touchdown in the showdown against Lebanon, with Von Flue and the rest of the line, Tashaun Treat, Tanner Ellsworth, Orie Schaffers, tight end Zach MacBean

and Jackson Clements, dominating the Warriors during the drive, which required six minutes and 38 seconds.

The meet, co-hosted by Kennedy and Silverton, used a new course this year, emphasizing fire roads and the Maple Ridge Trail.

Sophomore quarterback Jordan McCarty praised the offensive line for its “senior leadership.” Running back Nathan Kuenzi mentioned Von Flue specifically, noting “he kept talking to us in the huddle, telling us we needed to pick it up.” The Foxes hosted North Salem on Sept. 27 after Our Town’s presstime. As always, look for updates on the team on Facebook and my Twitter account. Kennedy, meanwhile, is 2-1 overall and 1-0 in Special District 2 after downing Santiam 28-6 in a rematch of last year’s Class 2A championship game. The Trojans are ranked eighth by the OSAA. Cross country: Approximately 30 teams and 600 runners participated in the Silver Falls-Oktoberfest Invitational Sept. 11.

A Grin at the End

Small towns ...

Big hearts

I love small towns. I’ve lived in several – in Oregon, Minnesota and Alaska. Unless I was forced to, I’d never live in a big city.

expertise. My wife and I, and our son, needed both. After the infection had subsided and our son was feeling better, my wife and I arrived at the hospital to take him home to continue his recovery. As we reached the door, a young husband and wife were taking their new baby to their car for the first trip home, excited and thankful and full of anticipation. The mom was an acquaintance and the daughter of friends.

But I’ve been at a loss to explain to other people just why I like small towns. It’s not just the Fourth of July fireworks or the street festivals. There’s more to it. I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Then something happened a few weeks ago that brought my thoughts into clearer focus. Our youngest son, 22, got sick – really sick. What started out as burn on his elbow turned into a massive infection. By the time he got to the emergency room at Santiam Hospital, he couldn’t walk, his heart rate was spiking and his blood pressure was plummeting.

whom knew us – and others who went out of their way to introduce themselves. For example, two of the CNAs went to high school with our son. One even had gone to the prom with him. The other brought him flowers and a “get well” card on her day off.

Then it occurred to me. In a small town, you really do get to witness the circle of life, the ebb and flow of friends, neighbors and strangers you encounter. Sometimes it’s under the worst of circumstances; other times, it’s the best of circumstances.

The ICU supervisor was a neighbor. She took the time to, well, just talk, sharing stories about her family and asking after mine. In the hospital lunchroom, the nurses and others asked about our son.

In a small town, you have to buy into the concept of neighbor much more readily than in a big city. Unlike life in a big city, you can’t divorce yourself and your fate from the town’s, because every one of us is important. Every town is a tapestry of the people who live in it. That’s true whether you live in Silverton, Mount Angel, Stayton or Sublimity.

But that’s not my point.

Another former neighbor who worked at the hospital greeted me in the hallway, asking how I was doing.

We, the people, make a town. We give it that sweet, loving and sharing character.

My point is that, at every turn, my wife and I found ourselves surrounded by friends and neighbors, many of

This was more than I would have ever expected. To me, the empathy was almost as important as the medical

All in all, not a good scenario. After a couple days in the intensive care unit and a few more in a regular room, he was able to go home. I won’t go all medical on you about what the doctors did, but suffice it to say that a week later he was back at work. In my mind, it was nothing short of a miracle.
