Ranger to the rescue

Project helps families facing hardship keep pets

By Mary Owen


Financial struggles often put Fido on the bottom of his owners’ to-do list and on the top of their worry list.

Murphy and her Golden Retriever, Ranger, have been through a lot in the 11 and half years they have been together.

“Finding the means to feed your best friend should not have to be a concern while faced with mounting medical bills, a family emergency, or loss of a family member,” said Erin Murphy, founder of the local charity, Ranger Project. “No one should have to be faced with giving up their best friend during a hard time.”

“I can honestly say that I would ‘live in a van down by the river’ before I would ever give him up,” she said, quoting motivational speaker, Chris Farley. “I also know that life can throw some pretty wicked curve balls and can be downright unfair at times.”

Based in Sublimity, Ranger Project helps pet owners by providing pet food and other supplies to pet owners facing a financial or medical emergency, including seniors with limited resources, domestic abuse victims having to relocate, and others facing temporary hardship. “I have always loved animals,” said Murphy, who grew up in Polk County. “I spent my youth in 4-H animal and leadership programs. That experience led me to wanting to make a difference in my

So downright unfair that Murphy was motivated to help pet owners keep their animals from becoming an animal shelter statistic. Approximately 7.6 million pets enter animal shelters each year, according to her website. To help change the future for these pets, Murphy founded Ranger Project in February 2017 and now focuses on helping families in Marion, Polk and Linn counties. “We have also helped families in Jefferson

County, and hope to expand even further across the state,” she said. “Families are selected based upon referral from caring individuals that have first-hand understanding of a family’s need.” Ranger Project provides six months of food and supplies to a family for up to three pets. When needed, the project also supplies basic medical supplies, toys, treats, new beds and grooming supplies. Future plans include providing routine veterinary care for pets in need, Murphy said. “It may seem like a small focus, but we are not only helping the animals,” she said. “We are providing emotional support for these families, showing them that people really do care about their struggles. We have found that several of the families we have helped are hesitant to ask for help (for themselves), but are willing to accept help for their animals.” Murphy believes the domino effect of such assistance makes the community


Since the Ranger Project is all volunteer run, Murphy said help in any form is always welcome. “We have a great base of volunteers,” Murphy said. “We can always use more people willing to help us spread the word and recommend. The more we spread the word, the more families we are able to connect with and help. “If you need help or know someone who does, please contact us through the website,” she added. “Also if you are unable to make a donation or volunteer, there are other ways to help.

Freres gets US Forest Service grant for new-to-the-world product

to company leaders.

Freres Lumber of Lyons was recently awarded the U.S. Forest Service’s Wood Innovations Grant for its new mass plywood panel project.

The grant will go toward the purchase of a Weinmann CNC machine that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided machining to saw doors, windows and all other cutouts with precision and efficiency. Panels will be cut with the CNC machine to fit specific projects, eliminating labor and time at commercial building sites.

“This grant award provides welcome financial support for our company’s significant investment in the future direction of our veneer-based wood products market,” Rob Freres said.

“We were recently informed that our Mass Plywood Plant was named the Forest Service’s top project in the United States,” said Rob Freres, executive vice president. “This was a competitive process with 114 grant applications submitted for consideration.” Tyler Freres, vice-president of sales, called the $250,000 grant important, not only for the financial support it offers, but also as a means of validating the company’s unique concept of creating mass timber panels out of veneer. Patents are currently pending, he said. “We believe that we have created a product that will revolutionize the now emerging mass timber industry

“The machine allows processing of 12-foot wide by 48.5-foot long up to 12 inches thick,” Tyler said. “Only 10 are made and in production worldwide.” Freres Executive Vice-President Rob Freres

by providing a product to market that more efficiently uses our Oregon-grown Douglas fir resources,” he said. “MPP is a new-to-the-world product.” The product is one-sixth the weight of concrete, and will provide a stronger, lighter, smaller, less expensive option

The Mass Plywood Panel facility will be Freres Lumber Company’s seventh wood processing plant. The plant, estimated to a cost upward of $23 million, is slated to open for manufacturing in January. Approximately 20 people will be employed per shift, retaining nearly 500 existing Freres family wage jobs as well as hundreds of indirect jobs, according

The Oregon State University College of Forestry and the Center for Advanced Wood Products tested the panels, confirming that MPP can achieve the same structural attributes of crosslaminated materials while using 20 to 30 percent less wood. The OSU College of Forestry and CAWP actively collaborate with Oregon building design professionals and wood products manufacturers to drive innovation and testing for engineered wood materials, allowing the state to compete in emerging domestic and global markets, according website information.

extension that gives Freres Lumber a three-year property tax abatement. Established in 1922 by T.G Freres on the North Fork of Oregon’s Santiam River, Freres Lumber has evolved from a small sawmill to one of Oregon’s premier wood products manufacturing companies. The company operates six plants, including a small log veneer plant, large log veneer plant, veneer drying facility, studmill, plywood plant and cogeneration facility.

“The Wood Innovations Grant program helps create jobs in rural communities and keeps our forests healthy,” said Tom Tidwell, U.S. Forest Service chief. “By investing in strong markets for forest products, we can incentivize sustainable forest management and sustain our rural communities.” Freres Lumber was also approved under the Oregon Investment Advantage for a multi-year tax holiday that allows the deduction of taxable income related to new operations. The credit begins at 24 months after the commencement of operations. The company also applied for a $100,000 Oregon Business Grant for its order management system, Tyler Freres said.

Something to Think About

Eclipse planning By Mary Owen The Great Eclipse is coming Aug. 21 and bringing with it thousands of people to the Santiam Canyon. “Traffic numbers are expected to be high,” said Allison McKenzie, executive director of GROW-EDC. “Expect traffic like we have on a normal holiday weekend plus what it would be like to have two home games in Eugene and Corvallis at the same time. It will be busy!” McKenzie advises having friends and family come early for the weekend and stay after Monday to avoid some of the crowds at airports, train stations and on the road.


“And we’d love to have them stay with us!” she said. “There are plenty of camping spots available, including Camp Taloali and the Sublimity Harvest Festival grounds, plus spots in downtown Stayton, Scio and at the United Methodist Church in Stayton. You can even pick up a ‘do-it-yourself’ camping kit at the festival grounds if you decided to stay over and

Stayton Fire District encourages you to have a Safe and Fun 4th of July!

Traffic may present a special challenge National Forest, said district staff members will camp out at many of the popular trailheads and viewing areas to welcome and inform the public about the eclipse and how to “leave no trace” so that the impacts to the land will be reduced. “We look forward welcoming visitors and helping them create lifetime memories of the natural world – terrestrial and celestial,” McMahon said. “We anticipate a great number of visitors, and there is a good possibility for congested roads and already full campsites.” McMahon asks campers to stay on trails and not create new campsites or fire rings. “August is a time of high fire danger, so be prepared to camp using gas stoves as fires may likely be prohibited at this time of year,” he said. “Bring a small shovel to bury your human waste and toilet paper. If you have gloves and an extra trash bag, please consider taking out something another visitor may have left behind. “Be prepared to share the woods with your fellow outdoor enthusiasts,” he added

Camping or not, McKenzie encourages visitors to “stay longer, play more, get off the road and into our woods and waters.” “We have plenty of fun outdoor recreation activities throughout the North Santiam River Country for those who stay over after the eclipse,” she said. She also encourages folks to grab their Eclipse 2017 guide and figure out events they would like to attend that weekend. A Howl at the Moon party will kick off the weekend Friday night in downtown Stayton, and activities abound throughout the Canyon all weekend.


Store fireworks out of children’s reach. Always read and follow label directions. Place pets indoors; they are easily frightened by fireworks. Always have water handy (a garden hose or bucket of water).

BE SAFE • • • • •

An adult should always light fireworks. Keep matches and lighters away from children. Use fireworks outdoors only. Light only one firework at a time and move away quickly. Keep children and pets away from fireworks. • Always remember - do not throw fireworks or hold them in your hand.


• Soak used fireworks thoroughly in a bucket of water. • Dispose of used fireworks and debris properly. • Never re-light “dud” fireworks. Wait 15 to 20 minutes and then soak in a bucket of water.

“Give yourselves plenty of time to experience and savor this special weekend with your neighbors, friends and family,” McKenzie advised.


Other tips include keeping food and water with you throughout the weekend, especially if traveling by car. “We all know what it’s like when we have a traffic accident on Highway 22,” she said. “Even if traffic moves slowly,

• Use only legal fireworks. • Use fireworks only in legal places. • Fireworks are prohibited on all beaches, State Parks, and State or Federal Forest lands.

At Figaro’s Pizza, we believe it means that all of our pizzas should be created fresh to order, using the highest quality ingredients. Because at Figaro’s, we have a passion for high-quality ingredients. It all starts with our dough, which uses 100% non-GMO American wheat milled in Oregon. We roll our pizza dough in our store, every day**. It’s not manufactured in some factory far away, frozen and shipped to stores. That would be an insult to your pizza and our heritage.

Rodeo action returns to Sublimity Harvest Festival arena

By Mary Owen

Presented by Freres Lumber Co., the Santiam Canyon Stampede provides thrills and spills with Professional Rodeo action on July 21-22 at the Sublimity Harvest Festival Grounds. “We here at the Santiam Canyon Stampede are very excited for 2017 and our 21st anniversary,” said Corky Justis, SCS director of promotions. “Last year celebrating our 20th anniversary gave us an equine prospective, being able to look back at where we started, all the great memories and hard work it took to build the Stampede. All the fun times and the ability to give back to the community! We want you to know we are energized as we look to the future!” Both Saturday and Sunday, a Firefighters Cowboy Breakfast will be held 7 a.m. to noon at the Sublimity Fire Station. Proceeds benefit the fire department. Activities kick off nightly with the Stampede Tailgate at 5:45. NPRA Rodeo action begins at 7 p.m. with the Grand Entry followed by bareback riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc, team roping, barrel racing, break-away roping and bull riding, as well as mutton busting, junior barrel racing, donkey races, extreme motorcycles, and the Kids’ Corral. Live music by Country Wide will be in the tent fir ages 21 and over.

“The community can take part in the kids’ events by preregistering for Mutton Busting, or Pee Wee and Jr. barrel racing,” Justis said. “Sign up at the Stayton A&W. We’ll also have donkey races again for competitors 18 and older.” On Friday night, kids can take part in the Kids Corral free of charge, thanks to Sublimity Insurance. There are games, pony rides, photo ops and prizes, Justis said. “They’ll also be able to get autographs from Justin Homan and his crew after they finish flipping and flying through the air on their motorcycles,” she added. X Game Gold medalist and Metal Mulisha rider, Homan, and his crew perform after each night’s rodeo. “The Stampede is also happy to welcome back clown and barrelman, Clint Selvester, who has been a crowd favorite,” Justis said. “Dan Fowlie will be announcing all the rodeo action. And our professional animal athletes are brought to us by Howell Rodeo Co.” Justis said all rodeo action can be seen and re-seen with the Stampede’s instant replay score board. Rodeo-goers are asked to show their support for diabetes awareness by wearing Royal Blue for Diabetes. The Stampede is working with Santiam Hospital to bring awareness about the disease, Justis said. Stampede tickets per day are $13 in advance and $17 at the

Sports & Recreation

Regis to the core By James Day Don Heuberger has so much Regis High School in his blood that he wanted to go to the school... before there even was a school. Heuberger, who turns 64 on July 5, remembers watching the school under construction when he was a kid. He decided then and there he was going to attend. He graduated in 1971, and when he returned in 1982 to be a teacher and baseball coach, well, he didn’t entertain a lot of thoughts about leaving. “Never,” Heuberger said when asked about moving elsewhere. “Nobody wanted me so I got to stay. They knew they had a loyal guy when they got me. I knew when I got to Regis High School that I was content. This was where I wanted to stay.” Heuberger, who has worked with eight principals at Regis (or maybe they worked with him?), has retired from his teaching, coaching and athletic director positions. Tony Miller will replace Heuberger as the AD, but the coaching position has not been filled. Heuberger noted that he has had multiple surgeries on each shoulder and that physical issues played a key role in his decision to retire. Heuberger’s Rams turned in another excellent baseball season in 2017, running the table in a 13-0 Tri-River Conference rout and finishing 18-2 overall, with the second loss coming to eventual Class 2A-1A champion Knappa in the state semifinals.

Baseball coach, teacher and AD Heuberger retires baseball, Riddle High, mill worker, Regis High (started as teacher/coach in 1982, added athletic director in1987) Baseball achievements: State titles in 2001 and 2003, runner-up in 1985, 1991 and 2007) Wins: 718, second in state history

THE HEUBERGER FILE Age: 63 (64 July 5) Residence: Sublimity College: Eastern Oregon Family: wife Danita (a retired executive secretary, four children (Jake, David, Denise and Joseph), 11 grandchildren Career: minor league Heuberger closed out his career with 718 wins in 39 years, the second-highest win total in state history. But Heuberger never wanted to talk about the wins. He would rather talk about players or assistant coaches or tell stories about the game. His final season, Heuberger said, “was all about the seniors, not about me.” Heuberger has shared the dugout with his brother Jon for 32 years, with the other Rams assistant, Gary Bielemeier, serving more than 25 years. “In the early days I typed up a practice plan every day,” Heuberger said. “In the last 15 years I have worked up maybe 10 practice plans. They know what they are going to do. It got to the point where we could read each other’s minds.” Heuberger told a story about watching Jon working patiently each day with the outfielders, reminding them of things, even joking around with them a bit. “But every year by midway through the

league season the outfielders had improved so much. That was Jon’s coaching.” Bielemeier left for a couple of years to work for Jeld-Wen, Heuberger noted, “and as soon as we found out he was coming back (rubbing his hands together and cackling) … ‘you are going to coach baseball, right?’ ” When the inevitable question of how high school kids have changed during his 39 years Heuberger had a surprising answer. “Kids are kids,” he said. “They have more technology type things that they are involved in… but that makes it actually easier to communicate with them, with texts and social media. “I’ve always thought that kids are eager to learn and work hard. If you are clear enough with them they’ll get it and work hard at it. There are more things for kids to do these days and you have to understand that as a coach or you’ll lose people. You’ve got to make it fun and the

kids have to know that you love what you are doing.” The first time I met Heuberger was at a baseball playoff game in 2003. After the game, which Regis won on the way to Heuberger’s second state title, I walked toward the dugout looking for players to interview. It was empty. The players – and coaches – were scattered taking care of the field. The first baseman was raking around the bag, the catcher was smoothing out around home plate, the designated hitter was at work in the bullpen and Heuberger was manning the hose. “It’s our expectation,” Heuberger said. “It’s not really difficult for the kids to buy into it. They know what community service and school service are all about. They are willing to pitch in. It’s pretty neat, pretty special. People in the Regis community buy into teamwork. They see people working hard. They appreciate the hard work and it filters down to kids.” The Regis field is one of the finest in the state, regardless of school size and Heuberger praised community members and business for their assistance. “We’re stewards of this facility,” he said. “People have given life, finances and treasure for this school and we have to maintain it. It’s our responsibility.” Whereupon the retired teacher, coach and athletic director drove his truck to the baseball field, donned his landscaping outfit, fired up a massive rideable lawnmower and cut the grass.

Old Glory and more

Time to celebrate the spirit of America

July is the time of year when a lot of people do a lot of flagwaving, and I’m one of them. But there’s more to America than Old Glory. Much more.

Americans – all Americans – have a strength of character
