Something to do

Hoppin’ ‘n’ poppin’ By Mary Owen Coach Steve Turner is this year’s Grand Marshal for the 48th annual Aumsville Corn Festival parade, which leads off an entire day of festivities on Aug. 27 at Porter-Boone Park. “The football team will march behind Turner and his wife, Mary,” said Sonny Newson, president of the Corn Festival Board. “He retired after the 2015 school year, and the 2015 4A State Championship.” Turner’s career spans 40 years in teaching and coaching, primarily football, but he has also coached baseball and wrestling. He has four football state championships to his credit: Cascade High, assistant coach in 1980; North Medford High, 6A, in 1993; Mountain View High, 5A, in 2011; and this year’s win for Cascade. Turner is now looking at Europe at the professional level and still might go back to high school sports in the Eugene area. “Cascade High School is a family and was a great place to be a member, a very

There’ll be 25 tons of corn at Aumsville’s festival

special place,” Turner said. “That’s why I came back.” The parade starts at 11 a.m. and winds around downtown Aumsville. First-place trophies and second- and third-place ribbons will be awarded in each of the nine categories. Special trophies will be awarded for the Grand Theme Winner Mayor’s Award, Judges’ Choice winner, and Novel/Most Humorous. Applications are available at the city or in the city newsletter. Registration can be done on the day of the parade between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. with judging to follow at 9:30 a.m. at the Bethel Baptist Church parking lot. There is no cost to enter. Porter-Boone Park also opens at 11 a.m. with festivities to follow at noon. New this year at the Corn Festival are the Downtown Devils and the Old Time Fiddlers. The groups will play on the new stage being built in Porter-Boone Park this year from grant money that is part of the newly approved future parks improvement program, Newson said.

“Free Whiskey is our main band,” Newson said. “Last year they were cancelled due to bad weather. Cascade High School will have their 30-member band in the parade and perform for 30 minutes at the festival starting at noon.” Cascade Strings, the Aumsville Community Theater’s Old-Time Radio Shows and Celebration Brass Oregon will also perform. “Music’s Hoppin and Corn is Poppin” is this year’s theme, and while musicians play, visitors can enjoy hot-buttered corn on the cob. “We are going to have 25 tons of corn delivered with prices staying at $1 for 10 ears and $3 for 20 ears in an environmental bag,” Newsome said. “We’re still giving away two free hot ears with butter per person.” Also at the Corn Festival will be the second annual Skate Board Competition, family games with a treasure hunt, and a variety of food, crafts and community service vendors.

A drawing will be held each hour, with many prizes including a seven-day Hawaiian trip provided by Riverview Community Bank. Tickets are available at the bank as well as Aumsville City Hall, and Neufeldt’s Restaurant. Karissa Champagne is the returning princess for her third year on the 2016 Corn Festival Court. Joining her on the Court are Lauren Gerbitz and Elaina Gerbitz. These three young ladies will serve the Aumsville community throughout the year, representing the festival, city and community until next June. This year’s sponsors are Riverview Community Bank; Marion Soil and Water Conservation District; Hillyer’s Stayton Ford; Jim Reed and Associates Insurance; Pacific Power; Gerry Flowers; The Squeeze Inn; and JMS Engineers. “We are still looking for new vendors,” Newsome said. “Visit the Aumsville city web page for applications for that and the parade.”

Helping hands

Pulling it together By Mary Owen Fran Huffman is the indispensable Aumsville Corn Festival volunteer. “A family member was involved in the festival and asked if I would like to help out, so my mother and I began doing so, and have continued for 27 years now,” said Huffman, who Fran Huffman also is also on the Festival Board and volunteers for the Aumsville community and the Aumsville and Salem police departments. Huffman first worked at the Agripac Company in Salem for eight years, while attending high school and college. She then worked for the Internal Revenue Department, was a teacher/child development director for the Salem YMCA for 20 years, and worked for the Salem Housing Authority until budget cuts axed her position after 10 years. She returned to school and became a certified nursing assistance, and was called to work for the Salem Police Department four years ago.

Longtime volunteer loves festival’s growth, changes

“I love volunteering and making people happy,” said Huffman, who is married with two children and a grandson. “I see growth each year with the corn festival and love the changes. Seeing people having a great time attending something we work so hard for all year is so rewarding.” Huffman said she finds volunteering a great way to give back to her community. “It’s like paying it forward,” she said. “It always makes someone else feel good.” Huffman plans to continue working with the Aumsville Corn Festival. “I want to for sure see the 50th anniversary happen and be a part of that event,” she said. “I was the board secretary for many years and right now just enjoy being a general member. I enjoy being in charge of the corn sales area of the festival and the coordinator for raffle prizes.” What Huffman wants to see is more local entertainment, which the festival board is adding. “Maybe some more healthy food vendors and/or produce vendors,” she said. “I would like to see the parade grow a little. More volunteers to help plan and assist with the

festival would be awesome!” The Aumsville Corn Festival brings anywhere from 12,000 to 14,000 to Porter-Boone Park, with some folks even moving to Aumsville after attending the annual event, Huffman said. “Through funds raised at the festival, we are able to help out the schools, police and fire departments and food banks,” she said. Four years have passed since Huffman and her husband, David, purchased a home in Aumsville after moving from Salem to Sublimity in 2008. “I like being a part of the Aumsville community and being able to see change in the community,” she said. Huffman encourages anyone with an interest in helping to be on the Aumsville Corn Festival Board and/or to help with the yearly planning and undertaking to “come to any of the meetings and join in the fun!” Committee meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month at the Chester Bridges Memorial Community Center. This year’s festival takes place on Aug. 27 at Porter-Boone and Mill Creek parks. The theme is “Music’s Hoppin’ and Corn’s Poppin’.

Jenifer Trivelli is a social-emotional educator and parenting coach for her company, Wisemind Educational Services. “In the last few years, I started noticing that I would go through a similar sequence with the majority of my clients, not only the kiddos but the adults, too,” Trivelli said. “I would excitedly share this blend I put together from emerging fields, like interpersonal neurobiology and mind-body psychology, with my friends and colleagues, and they really started encouraging me to put it in a book. I wanted to be able to give all the kids and families access to this information that I had discovered.” Trivelli took the next step and selfpublished an illustrated guidebook for children titled Peanut and the BIG Feelings, which offers adults a tool for helping children learn how to manage their emotions in positive ways.

Book gives parents, children new tools In the back of the book is an intervention manual that gives more details on the science behind the story and information to take individuals or groups of children through the activities. “Peanut is my daughter’s nickname,” Trivelli said of her choice to name her lead character, a compilation of “every kiddo I’ve had the honor of working with in this way.” Trivelli believes the name “Peanut” makes the story more accessible to a broader range of children and families than using a gendered name. “Many of us understand that taking a deep breath can help a big feeling calm down,” she said. “It’s often not often a tool we think of on our own when we’re already at a nine or 10 with our feeling intensity. And we are adults!” The book offers four strategies based on the science of neurobiology and how people’s systems work, she said. “They’re also strategies that are aimed at shifting the state of the body from activated to a state of balance, versus more traditional cognitive strategies which aim at trying to convince a person with limited access to their thinking brain to think differently,” she said.

regulation.” A certified Yoga-Calm instructor, Trivelli teaches yoga for kids and works privately with families, couples and children who want to have closer relationships. She holds a master’s degree in counseling and is currently working on what she views as “the next developmental step in a series,” she said. “I have a 13-year-old co-author, and we are writing a book aimed at young teens,” Trivelli said. “It will feature much of the same science and strategies, while offering additional strategies for that population. We are both excited to reach this part of the population with tools and information we have ourselves found so valuable.” Trivelli credited her partner, who has three teenage sons, and others, including wellness coach Sharon Roemmel, for helping her to illustrate and write her book. “I almost enjoy sharing my journey writing the book as much as I do the book itself,” said Trivelli, a mother of two children, 6 and 8. “I think it’s a great message to kids to give something a try, even if they don’t think they have the skills to do it.” For information, visit www.

National Night Out By Mary Owen Stayton, Sublimity and Aumsville are all planning activities for National Night Out Aug. 2. Block parties hosted by the Stayton Police Department. “We host it each year at the four parks and always have a great time cooking and talking with citizens,” said Sgt. Danielle Wetzel with the Stayton PD. “We as a department feel this is a great opportunity to build unity with your neighbors and local law enforcement.” Police Chief Rich Sebens and other officers believe it is everyone’s responsibility to take ownership in the community they live in, which can be accomplished by getting to know neighbors and reporting suspicious activity. “Through participating in events like National Night Out, we believe you will become more comfortable with law enforcement and your neighbors,” Sebens said. The Stayton Police Department block parties run 6 to 8 p.m. at Pioneer, Quail Run, Santiam Station and Westown parks. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided, but the

department requests a donation of a store-bought item per neighbor to add to the barbecue. Neighbors who are planning additional block parties can contact Officer Meeker to ensure a visit by a police officer at 503-769-3421 or by e-mailing Sublimity’s National Night Out barbecue will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at Church Park as part of the First Tuesday in the Park events. Vendor booths open at 5 p.m. and include: staytonevents. com; Thirty One Gifts; Everything Rustic Home Décor; Scentsy; Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America; Tupperware; Younique-ly Made in Oregon; MidColumbia Bus Co.; doTerra; Break the Chain; Luke’s Lemonade Stand; LuLaRoe; Sweet Dreams Kettle Korn; It Works Global; and Rodan + Fields. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office will be serving barbecued hot dogs, and neighbors are asked to bring a store-bough potluck item to share. Music will be provided starting at 6 p.m. by the Rock N Roll Cowboys. Bring blankets or lawn chairs and kick back for a good time. Aumsville’s National Night Out will run 6 to 9 p.m., with several neighborhoods throughout the city hosting a

variety of special events such as block parties, barbecues, and visits from the police and fire departments. Neighborhood locations this year are: Mill Creek Estates, near the park; Windemere Meadows Park; Wildwood Park on Fifth Street; Panther Park on N. 10th Place; and at the fire department between 4th and 5th on Church. Reserve officers and volunteer citizens will barbecue hamburgers and hot dogs, and will supply the meat, buns and condiments. Neighbors are asked to bring their own table service, drinks and “extras” to share to make it a picnic. “It will be a great evening for each family to encourage your police and fire departments and network with the whole neighborhood,” organizers said. “Enjoy eating, visiting with your friends and neighbors, and possibly even meeting new people.” The Aumsville Police Department is also sponsoring a children’s coloring contest, and color sheets can be picked up at the department. Prizes will be awarded. To host a neighborhood event, call Community Resource Officer Kevin Gollinger at 503-749-2188.

Athletic fundraiser By Mary Owen At Regis High School, Joe Nieslanik said the benefits of high school athletics reaches far beyond the playing field. “It takes just one trip to Pendleton for the state basketball tournament to see the impact and community-building that Regis athletics has on the entire student body and the community,” Nieslanik said. He is the president of the Regis Athletic Association. “The stands were filled with parents, alumni, parents of alumni, cheerleaders, faculty and most of the student body,” Nieslanik said Nieslanik said athletic programs are proven to provide team building, leadership and discipline opportunities, nurturing a culture and community that allows students to feel part of something larger than themselves. “The Regis Athletic Association’s

mission is to raise money to make sure the student athletes don’t have to pay a participation fee for athletics at Regis High School,” he said. “Our 13-member board of parents and Regis enthusiasts has embraced the task of raising $50,000 to $65,000 each year to make that happen.” Funds raised go toward athletic programs to pay for uniforms, equipment, referees, transportation and travel expenses for various state tournaments and competitions, he said.

New Life in Senior Living

“The Regis Golf Tournament over the last two years has been our largest fundraiser for RAA,” Nieslanik said of the tournament, which under the leadership of Tim Smith has raised up to $20,000 a year. The 31st annual Regis Ram Open golf tournament will take place Saturday, Aug. 6. Cost to participate is $90 for all golfers, which includes golf, cart lunch, prizes and two free drink tickets. Tee-off time is at 8:30 a.m. with check-in a half hour prior. Four-person scramble play scoring will be based on gross score, less 10 percent of the total team handicap. Prizes include hole prizes, place payouts and random prizes. Entries close with the registration of 32 teams and the deadline is Aug. 1 to register. Lunch and awards will follow the tournament at the Santiam Golf Course. The platinum sponsor is Mountain West Investment

Corporation. Nieslanik, his wife, Ellen, and son, Sam, have been a part of the Regis community for the past four years after moving to the area from Colorado. “Sam has participated in athletics, and we have seen first-hand the benefits of RAA continued work and fundraising,” he said. “There is hardly a morning that we don’t wake up thankful that Sam has had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful community. He has grown, socially, academically, athletically and spiritually.” Nieslanik said many of the supporters that helped launch the success of the Regis Ram Open are transitioning to other things, and RAA is looking for a new core group of supporters willing to help insure the long-term success of the tournament.

“Our family serving yours”

New turf SHS field gets a makeover

The area’s only locally-owned and owner-operated funeral home

Stayton High is about to become the second school in the Oregon West Conference with an artificial turf surface on its football field. Eagles Athletic Director Darren Shryock told Our Town “we hope have it all done by mid-August in time for teams to practice for the fall, but it is a large project so we will see.”

Glenn Hilton Family, Owners Glenn has personally served the community for over 29 years.

According to Shryock, Newport is the only other Oregon West school with turf.

“Getting turf is about having the best for our kids as far as a playing surface,” he said. “I don’t know that it is safer than grass, but the ability to play at a high level is certainly improved. The ability to play both football and soccer will help our teams. Our boys’ soccer team has had to rent turf fields such as Sprague’s for their playoff games; it will be awesome to now play those at home. “Our football team is on the rise and hosting post-season games on turf will improve their chances for success as well. Turf at Stayton has been in the thought process for going on 10 years now; it just all came together this year.” As is usually is the case with turf projects a community-wide effort was necessary to pull it off. The project received support from the North Santiam School District, grant money, the school’s booster club – and the rest of the community. Shryock singled out Bill Martinak, Jim Huddleston, Denny Holm and Roger Roberts, noting that they “all donated their skill and expertise to the project, and we couldn’t have done it without them.” A key benefit of the project is that Stayton’s Class 4A power boys soccer program, coached by Chris Shields, now will be able to play home games under the lights instead of at 3:30 p.m. The Eagles’ boys and girls soccer teams

will play a doubleheader Friday, Sept. 2 in the scheduled debut of the new field, with the girls playing at 1 p.m. and the boys at 3 p.m. Fun runs: Stayton hosted its annual 4th of July runs, with women competitors shining the brightest. Brianne Spears, 35, was the overall winner in the 10-kilometer event, turning in a sizzling 34:53.10, nearly four minutes ahead of men’s winner Tyler Dudley, 26, who ran 38:42.30. Spears finished 19 minutes ahead of the second-place women’s runner. Nikol Allison, 41, was the top finisher in the 3K race in 13:57.90. The top male runner was 9-year-old Will Rosling, who ran 14:49.80. Matthew Frazer, 15, won the 5K trail run in 17:55.80. Mary Moule, 46, was the top woman finisher in 21:17.20. Fall dates to note: With summer winding down (right, it’s 90 degrees outside as I type this) here are the dates to watch as high school squads get set to start work in football, soccer, cross country and volleyball. Conditioning drills start Aug. 8, Aug. 15 is the first OSAA-sanctioned practice date, and the first date for contests is Aug. 25. Most football teams debut Friday, Sept. 2. Follow me on @jameshday. Got a news tip? Email me at jamesday590@ Follow Our Town on Facebook.

Crews were working July 25 to flatten and smooth the rock base for the new artificial surface at the football field at Stayton High. James Day

a Grin at the end

Home improvement pointers It’s been my long-held opinion that there is no need for capital punishment as long as there are home improvement projects to be done. Instead of spending eternity on death row, the worst offenders should be sentenced to fixing things around the house or building a fence or painting a bedroom. Nothing is as punishing as standing there looking at a crooked wall or a newly installed light fixture that doesn’t work. In my past, such jobs represented punishment beyond words. The mere thought of a trip to the hardware store or to buy lumber and gizmos for a home project was enough to make me swear off all of my sins, at least for a little while. Lately, though, I’ve had a change of heart. I’ve undertaken some small and medium-sized jobs around the house and found that I actually enjoyed them. And they didn’t come out nearly as badly as I feared they would. What happened? One of the main influences was when my wife asked an electrician for a bid on putting new lights in our kitchen. I’m not sure what the guy was thinking, but he said it would be “too hard.” When my wife told me that, I said. “Hey, if it was easy, I’d do it.” Then I got to thinking.

and countertop at some point, but for now I like the “doneness” of it. Step Three: Talk with your wife — or significant other — about what you plan to do before you start and get her input. And listen. I’m still trying to get this step down.

Putting new lights in a kitchen isn’t inventing a cure for cancer. All I needed was a plan. I sat down and wrote my patented Seven Easy Steps for Home Improvement Success. If I followed it, I was sure to succeed. Step One: Watch You Tube. Among all of the videos about cats and Taylor Swift is a great selection on fixing stuff. I recently fixed our 40-year-old dryer. OK, it took me three tries and four days, but it runs like a champ now, thanks to the help of a couple You Tube videos, and some advice from the lady at the dryer parts store. Step Two. Limit the scope of the job. Have a hard finishing point. In other words, don’t start with the idea that you won’t stop until you have rebuilt the entire house. I replaced the lights in the kitchen, declared victory and stopped. We may change the sink

Step Four: Make a materials list and then buy too much stuff. You can always return items that you don’t use, but there’s nothing more frustrating than having to stop in the middle of a job and go the store for another do-dad or a whatchamacallit. Step Five: Take a break. You’re not a slave. Every hour or two, sit down and have an ice tea and watch an episode of West Wing or read a magazine. I was surprised at how easy things went when I did that instead of trying to power through. Step Six: Even when I take regular breaks, I need to stop for the day before I start to “spool up.” That’s a pilot term for a jet engine when it starts to build power. When I spool up, I start skipping steps and rushing. And then I get really frustrated, and believe me, everyone around me suffers. Step Seven: When it’s finished, quit looking at it. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. I don’t know who said that first, but I’m sure he was talking about a home improvement project.
