Problem Solved! Persistence Pays Off By Karen Kromer Foster Amanda Johnson, a parent of a Rosland student, sent me a letter and said the story was about a bus stop but it is a bit more than that. It is a story about persistence to help children, the frustration in solving a problem, roadblocks and helping the community for no other reason than making it better. Since we live rural in La Pine, the bus stops for our elementary schools, middle school and high school are basically in the middle of the woods. One bus stop had to be moved out to State Rec Road, on a blind hill, when the road in the woods could not be maintained. The neighborhood had also dealt with issues around theft, vandalism and trespassing trying to keep this bus stop viable because it was located close to the students. The transportation department did some research and determined before school started this year that due to lack of road maintenance, they were not able to keep a bus stop in a location close to the houses. By moving the bus stop, children had to walk 2 miles to get to the reassigned bus stop with a one-mile stretch with no houses or lights. Amanda stepped up and said this was not reasonable to ask of the kids, when some of them are struggling to get a good night sleep, clean clothes and food. Getting to transportation should not be another barrier to getting an education. Amanda reviewed the research and notes that were use to make the decision and started making calls on her own to find out who needed to maintain the road so the families could get their bus stop back. Amanda’s daughter does not ride the bus on a daily basis but she communicates with those that do and the two-mile walk through the woods, a mile stretch with no houses or lights was scary to the kids and just not safe. Amanda’s research put her in touch with George Kolb with the county, who pointed out that the 1300 hundred foot of road in question was not the county road. She then called the state department, which gave her a golden nugget in

By quickly getting the work done before the snow started falling, the one-mile dark stretch was eliminated and the students and parents are not scared to head to or from the bus stop.

There is now a snowplow turn around at the location of the bus stop in question, and the busses are using it as well.

La Pine Looking at a Branding Process for the City and South County

Corner Store

15989 Burgess Rd. La Pine OR 97739

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter Over the past few months we have addressed the involvement of the different factions (Government, nonprofits and businesses) in La Pine coming together to discuss La Pine’s Future. There were three committees formed during the RDI (Rural Development Initiative). The first dealt with cleaning up and shining up La Pine by presenting curb appeal to customers and visitors to the area- Shine on La Pine pulled thousands of pounds of the noxious weeds call knapweed in the downtown area and went to businesses to get pledges of ongoing curb appeal support. A second committee dealt with Business Vitality

Development and customer service. The committee met to discuss what we know we have, what we know we should have and now a final meeting will present some options for local training for a well prepared workforce and employees that are on their toes and ready to give fine service and good information about their products and our area when asked! The third committee deals with Marketing the La Pine Image and it has now gone to Central Oregon Visitors Association COVA) and received a $10grant through Travel Oregon to help hire a professional consultant who will help La Pine Brand itself.

This will be the first step towards discovering a fixed community identity to be used in all future marketing of La Pine. Between the three committees working to finish the first steps in the Community revitalization projects for the fall. We now have a cleaner looking community with a better curb appeal, we know that we need to and are working to develop ways to educate employees on customer service and train businesses to improve the ways they do business and with the branding of the community when we say “I Speak La Pine,” we hope to be on the same page about how

we market the community. When RDI came to visit, it also opened the doors for the Oregon Rural Development Commission to explore how to help La Pine. It appears as though we are finally coming together to get all of the priorities for the community on the same page and State, Federal and nonprofit foundations are taking notice and extending a helpful hand to give La Pine the help it needs to develop.

Chamber Connection

What is a Rural Tourism Studio? With all of the activity going on in La Pine over the past year (La Pine has started an Urban Renewal district, we are seeking to brand the community with a special and unique identity of its own, the Community Vitality work around the six areas of community vitality [the economy, natural resources, education, arts and culture, public safety, health and human services], and the resulting workshops that are keeping the shine on La Pine, marketing La Pine and a committee to help to build a skilled workforce we are ready to undertake yet another project- one, I might add that will boost the economy and help identify the entire area as a destination for tourism! The Rural Tourism Studios have opened up areas like the river canyon area by Smith Rocks, the Mount Hood Territory, the John Day river area and more. Travel Oregon is considering opening up new areas to focus the tourism into other parts of Oregon and we are one of those areas to be considered. With the help of the Chamber of Commerce and the City of La Pine, the Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) will help the towns and area

representatives and businesses located in or near Newberry Caldera to pull together and become a place where the High Desert meets the rivers and the mountains to become a carved out section of the Oregon travel map all on its own. The process includes an application process that is being done by a small committee of Chamber and City folks. Next, a steering committee will be formed to direct the goals of the area and the group will work with Travel Oregon to direct the process. This is the real deal. By adding this idea to the mix of all of the activities that are propelling La pine into the future, we stand to make better impression on our neighbors across the state and add a bit of vitality to the economy. A Rural Tourism Studio revitalizes areas and helps build businesses and attract new businesses. We want this to happen and we will try hard to qualify to be the next destination for Travel Oregon as a boost to our economy! For more info, call the Chamber at 536-9771. If you have not been in in a while, stop by. We are located at the corner of Huntington and HWY 97.

The Foodie Column

By T. Myers

Winter Recipes - Hot Chocolate and Chicken Soup Hot chocolate tastes so good on a cold day and I have a recipe that really works for a large batch you can dig into for yourself or for your friends: 1-3/4 cups of cocoa powder 1-3/4 cups of coffee creamer (if you use a flavored one they are good, too) 120 cups of dry milk powder 2 cups of sugar 1 teaspoon salt Mix all of the ingredients and pack into sealable jars. I use smaller jars and add things like crushed peppermint candies, tiny marshmallows, chocolate chips, etc. When added to boiling water, the chips and peppermints melt and add flavor to the cup. I use about three heaping spoons per full cup of water- but taste it to adjust. This is terrific added to coffee and for the adults add some amaretto or peppermint schnapps for a kicker!, What do you serve with it? Toast, buttered with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar for a snack or if you are Scandinavian, try toast with cheese and jam. These are easy cold weather afternoon treats and if you use the

cheese- lunch is served! I still love to open a can of peaches and eat a bowl with peanut butter toast, too. It gets all gooey and satisfying and tastes terrific with the peaches! Yum Try my crock pot soup for a winter pot of yumminess! Chicken thighs are on sale, so cut up a couple of pounds into small pieces. They are more flavorful than breast meat and hold moisture when cooked so they stay juicy. Brown the pieces in oil until nicely colored. Using salt and pepper, a dash of sage and a dash of garlic powder, put the cooked chicken into a crock pot. Add cut up onions, carrots and celery pieces like you are making a stew. Open a can of cream of mushroom soup and dump over the contents, then add a can of water. Stir the mixture and adjust the spice for a light flavor. Cook on low while you are at work. When you come home make a pot of rice- either brown or white. Scoop a spoonful into a bowl and ladle a portion of the stew over the top for a hearty dish. Add a small green salad and a slice of French bread and you are in for a hearty treat that will really satisfy your hunger! There has been lots of talk about winter drinks lately, but if you do not use alcohol, try having a jar of Country time lemonade and or Tang on hand. Heat water and make it hot and serve with a cinnamon stick for a nice touch. One of the hot drinks that are being called at local

Call to Action Answered by Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Reservation with $10K

La Pine Park and Recreation Foundation and District is very excited to announce the award of $10,000.00 from Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation for the repair of the roof at the John C. Johnson historical building and insulation for the roof at the Community Hall at Finley Butte Park. After damages from flooding at the Finley Butte Park building it was closed for repair. The repairs there are underway and will be complete this spring. The John C. Johnson building is the last vestige of White School Complex left in La pine. It was built to use as a wood shop, and auto shop and classrooms for older students back in the twenties and it also served as the community library building for several years while the Deschutes Public Library System prepared to build our new La Pine Library. Names after former La Pine schools’ superintendent John C. Johnson, it has been home to classes, small businesses, the local radio station, Frontier Days, NeighborImpact and Newberry Eagle during the last decade. The building has been out of service for two years due to the damage to the roof and the consequent difficulty heating it and keeping the water supply from freezing. Now, after the donation from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation to help repair the roof, plans are being made to begin the work as soon as the weather allows. Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation awards grants in the Oregon Counties where they historically lived, hunted,

travelled and made their home. Luckily, Deschutes County is one of the counties they choose to serve. They have awarded $10,000.00 towards the two projects because they believe that it will serve the community and they want to support helping the children and families in the area. (Cow Creek is also supporting the La Pine Community Kitchen as part of their ongoing mission to help feed children and families in need.) The LPRF and LPRD is grateful to the Foundation for their consideration and now they will turn to the community to get more help towards finishing the two projects. The Ya Ya Sisterhood has just donated $450.00 towards the Put a Roof on It Project and LPRD is asking for more donations to help meet the rest of the costs of saving the JCJ building roof. We need to secure an additional $5K for the roof project if possible and your donations are tax deductible. Over the next few weeks you can donate at the LPRD offices in the LPCC or send a check to P O Box 664 for the Put a Roof On It fund. Call 541536-2223 FOR MORE INFORMATION. Checks should be made out to LPRF with a designation for the roof fund on the memo line. Saving this historical building for community use is a top priority for the district and the community. La Pine thanks the generosity of the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation for their help in repairing the roof at both parks!

Newberry Habitat says Happy New Year Everyone! What an amazing lead up to the new year with all of the snow in La Pine! For those of you who have been in the area, you might recall how similar this winter is to those from years ago. We used to get snow- once it started and every couple of days, the snow would drop a few inches and then the sun would come out and clear the roads off so we could drive easily. Winter would begin around Thanksgiving time and the snow pile would finally melt in late April or May. Yes, we had snow on the 4th of July and yes, we had snow accumulate in June. It was how the extreme weather reputation started. To see what is happening this year with more snow in the forecast, is very reminiscent of those bygone days of my youth! Why talk about the weather? Habitat for Humanity always wants people to be safe and we have always recommended a buddy to talk with each day as a check in person and we hope you have one already set up. This person could be someone who is close- like a next door neighbor or it could be a close friend who can notify the folks who do live nearby if you need a hand. When I look at the snow removal- with our long driveways, sidewalks and pathways, and when I think about the danger- real danger in shoveling heavy snow that is full of rain water- I hope that this reminder is enough to make you take the chore of snow removal seriously and slowly. You may also need to check the roof accumulation, too. Remove the icicles with a broom so they do not fall on you by accident.

Clear your decks of snow if you can and let them dry out whenever possible. When it gets slushy it is a good time to take out the snow shovel and clean down to the ground so it does not refreeze- it causes slipping problems until it melts naturally. Walking on ice is never safe for anybody of any age and is the leading cause of falling and fracturing ribs and hips in the winter. Trying to catch yourself when falling can also lead to a fractured wrist or arm, too. If you have a cell phone, take it with you when you go outside so that you do not get stuck while you are up on the roof or getting a load of firewood or- worst case scenario- if you fall and cannot get up. People get very dehydrated in winterthinking that because the weather is cold that they do not have to drink as much, but the truth is that activity burns off lots of water and when you don’t notice perspiration because of the temperature, it can trick you into a sense of well- being that is putting you in jeopardy. Drink plenty of liquid- hot or cold- the same as you do in the summertime. Dressing for the occasion is a must, too. Use natural fabrics with wool being the number one go to fabric for wicking water away from the body. The new polyesters and even cotton will keep moisture next to the skin and add to cooling you down when you get wet or cold. This is the time of year for wool socks and snow boots. If it is difficult to put on your snow boots, think about getting a pair with Velcro closures that are big enough to go over a couple pairs of winter socks when you need them to. Layers are always better See Habitat page 15

“The small class sizes enabled me to have lots of mentoring and one-onone time with my professors. ” - TYLER PRATT

TYLER PRATT “COCC was the natural choice to complete my general engineering courses. COCC allowed me to stay in Bend for my first two years in order to be close to my family as well as save a significant amount of money. “My experience was exceptional for numerous reasons. All my professors in science, engineering and mathematics were fantastic.

La Pine-Sunriver Rotary Club By Mark Dennett

Local Rotarian Relief Effort In Nepal Continues In 2016 This monthly column shares what local Rotarians, your friends and neighbors, are doing to help make South Deschutes County communities and around the world better places to live and work. JANUARY 20TH MEETING HIGHLIGHTS NEPAL – As reported earlier, four Sunriver Rotarians joined an international work party this past November in Briddim, Nepal to assist one community in the Langtang Valley. Mission leader Monet Beith will make a Nepal presentation at the Club’s January 20th meeting. In addition to money and supplies that were part of the November effort, in December approximately $2,000.00 worth of donated medical supplies and medicine were handed over to the Dhunche Hospital in the Rasuwa area of Nepal. These items were contributed by local Rotarians and Bend Memorial Clinic.  More than eight months after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake, recovery is slow.  Monet adds that “India, which surrounds Nepal on three sides has closed the border arbitrarily for the last three months, restricting fuel and supply imports.  People in Kathmandu are cooking with wood if they can find it.  Electricity is very restricted. Medicine is scarce. Tourism, a major economic source, is discouraged by many nations due to the challenged, post earthquake infrastructure.” The Sunriver-La Pine Rotary in conjunction with Rotary of Kathmandap and Rotary of East Central Portland will continue to work with the needs of Nepal.  If you are interested in contributing to the Rotary Club’s Nepal international project, Contributions may be made to the Sunriver Rotary Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit: P.O.Box 4761,

Sunriver, OR 97707. Donations are 100% tax deductible. LOCAL KIDS RECEIVE FREE DICTIONARIES FROM ROTARY – The goal of The Dictionary Project is to ensure that everyone will be able to enjoy the benefits of owning a dictionary. With the help of Rotary clubs around the world, since 1995 nearly 25 million free dictionaries have been given to 3rd graders via this popular nonprofit based out of Charleston, South Carolina. The Sunriver-La Pine Club recently distributed dictionaries to almost 180 students at three South Deschutes elementary schools: La Pine, Rosland, and Three Rivers. ROTARY PEACE FELLOWSHIPS AVAILABLE –The spike in conflicts around the globe has boosted the need for professionals skilled in waging peace. The fully funded Rotary Peace Fellowship, which covers tuition and living expenses, is to create additional peace leaders to prevent and resolve conflict through academic training, field experience, and professional networking. Up to 100 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process. Fellows earn either a master’s degree or a professional development certificate at one of the Rotary Peace Centers, located within seven leading universities around the world. If you know someone that might be interested in applying, contact Rotarian Mark Dennett via email ( NEW MEMBER WELCOMED– The club’s newest member is Joel Shuster

Some initial cohort members who were employees of the Interfor Mill in Gilchrist attended training but were not able to continue working on the project due to conflicting work schedules. The map and information panels are scheduled to be installed in time for the 2016 tourist season. A couple other projects were born out of the groups project selection A project to improve the local food bank was taken on by a number of the cohort members and materials were donated by the Interfor Mill for this project. Some members got behind a School Back Pack program to provide additional food stuffs for disadvantaged youth at the request of the school administrator for long weekends and the like. The Crescent-Gilchrist Lions Club requested a grant from Mid-State Electric to help fund this program and funds Mohawk Restaurant & Lounge were made available.

of responsibility. These groups included, design, time management, location (placement in each community), finance, construction and contract personnel. In theory the project was to be constructed by cohort members using outside vendors willing to donate much of their time and materials. To complete the project in all four communities was a huge commitment for the cohort and required a large amount of funding. The finance group began exploring grant options and received a large tourism grant from Klamath County. Using grant funds, the Cohort had to seek a contractor through the public bid process. Mid-summer 2015 was a busy time to seek contractors due to the then present building boom. Most local contractors were already committed to other projects and their schedules did not allow them to place a bid on the cohort’s project in the four communities. However, Tri Force Corp of Bend did offer an acceptable bid and have done a fine job for the cohort. A great deal of time and effort has, and still

How We “Beet” High Blood Pressure! By Celeste Davis, Your God-Made-Health Mentor, Certified Health & Living Well Coach The January 19, 2015 announcement read: Queen Mary University of London study Reveals Beet Juice Lowers Blood Pressure. The double blind study consisted of 64 patients half; of which had high blood pressure that was not controlled by medication and half had high blood pressure but were not yet on medication. “This interesting study builds on previous research by this team and finds that a daily glass of beetroot juice can lower blood pressure in people with hypertension – even those whose high blood pressure was not controlled by drug treatment”. Dr. Shannon Amoils, Senior Research Advisor at the British Heart Foundation. The beet juice patients also showed an increase in blood dilation capacity, and a decrease in arterial stiffness; both markers of heart disease. The study did find that high blood pressure returned in participants who stopped using the beet juice. Unlike their pharmaceutical counterparts, beet juice has no known harmful side effects. This study is no surprise to me. For almost a decade I’ve watched our healthy lifestyle students regulate their blood pressure, and lower their cholesterol and blood sugar and pain levels with real vegetable juices. Jeannine and her sister are great examples of this truth. Jeannine slowly began changing her diet to a whole foods diet and eliminated processed foods. She saw some pounds come off and began to feel a little better, however, her blood pressure was creeping up to a dangerous level. Jeannine decided to do our Wonderfully Well cleanse and drink our powdered BarleyLife and Redibeet juice 3 times a day. These two products are dehydrated vegetable juice concentrates that simplify the juicing process. Within 10 days Jeannines blood pressure was normal, she dropped more weight and felt fantastic. She is now in her 4th month of normal blood pressure readings. Her sister was excited to hear about Jeannine’s newfound wellness and weight loss and decided to follow Jeannine’s plan. In a matter of days her sister too had normalized her blood pressure and was off all her digestion and pain medications. She felt good and it showed to her family and friends. Her husband noticed, jumped on the bandwagon and lowered his blood pressure and improved his digestion among other things. These are just two of thousands of similar stories. So why is a whole foods diet and the BarleyLife and Beet juice so effective? The answer is simple;

useable nutrition. If you’ve read my articles in the past you’re familiar with the word Enzymes. Enzymes are the construction crew of the food. They take the vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats and put them to use in the body. Raising the temperature of the food above 118 degrees kills the enzymes, reducing the usability of the nutrients. How does beet juice work? The “magic” that regulates high blood pressure is Nitric Oxide, and is made in your body from the nitrate found in beet juice. Dr. David Williams, chiropractor and medical researcher states: “Nitric oxide relaxes the smooth muscles in your blood vessels. This helps your arteries stay properly dilated. Nitric oxide also has an anti-platelet effect that helps prevent blood from thickening and clotting.” The nitric oxide from beet juice also helps with energy and all forms of circulatory dysfunction, including male and female erectile disorder. You can also receive the benefit of beet nitrate in roasted and raw beets. Since dietary nitrate is water-soluble the benefit is lost when you boil beets. Beets are a super-food. According to the Encyclopedia of Healing foods, the healing properties of beets make them a super-food. They stimulate the liver to detoxify. The purple crimson color - betacyanin, is well known as a powerful cancer-fighting agent. Betacyanin builds the blood and is a “potent inhibitor of nitrosamines”, cancer-causing agents from smoked and cured meats. When you eat a whole beet the fiber has a favorable effect on cholesterol and bowel function, which helps to protect against colon cancer. It’s important to note that betacyanin may cause red urine or red stools in some people; this is largely due to stomach acidity and is not harmful. In addition to a real, whole foods diet my students regularly use dehydrated juice powders from young barley grass, carrots and beets. These are high quality non-GMO dehydrated juices, tested pesticide, herbicide, pathogen and fungus free. The vegetables in these juice powders are grown worldwide in areas free from environmental pollution. The AIM companies oversee every step of production. The vegetables are harvested at the perfect time, juiced on site and dehydrated on site at a low temperature to preserve the enzymes; the construction crew of the food.

It is possible to make your own beet juice; one serving is the juice of half a pound, approximately 2 medium sized beets. However when my students compare the time and mess of making their own juice with the convenience and high quality ingredients of the juice powders the powders win almost every time. There’s nothing more exciting to me than watching people become Wonderfully Well as nourish their bodies by eating real food. They stand up straighter, smile more often, try new things and begin to help their family and friends learn to Be Nourished. I would love to teach you and your family how to nourish your body so it can heal. My students, who nourish their body, experience increased energy, reverse chronic health problems, rest well and reach a comfortable weight. If you are interested in using the incredible beet juice powders and real whole foods to improve your life give me a call at 615-975-0186.

Luvy was surrendered to the shelter with three other kitties because her owner could no longer keep them where she

was living. These kitties come highly recommended, and we can tell they are exceptional felines. She loves the company of kids, cats and dogs, uses the litter box and quietly observes all around her. She is described as being friendly but reserved, she enjoys gentle attention and she loves to sleep up on a shelf!

solving the problem. They told her that her school board was able to reassign any stop that is not safe. When she called me about the timing of the next school board meeting, I put her directly in touch with Mr. Jim Boen, Director of South County Schools and they discussed who had been contacted and what needed to happen. Mr. Boen examined the twomile stretch with folks from transportation trying to determine an alternative bus stop or solution. He contacted the county again with the clear vision of what was best for kids. Amanda and Mr. Boen worked with George Kobl and though he made no promises, he guided them to attend meetings, make

requests and the end result is amazing!! There is now a snowplow turn around at the end of Whittier, the location of the bus stop in question, and the busses are using it as well. By quickly getting the work done before the snow started falling, they eliminated the one-mile dark stretch and the students and parents are not scared to head to or from the bus stop. Not all problems are solved easily and it is was a collective effort of people that really didn’t have to do anything but choose to try. It is nice to see the positive character of people that choose to do the right thing, and don’t give up. That is the glue of our community and one we are all proud to be a part of.

Habitat continued from page 6 than a single puffy coat or jacket, a shirt with a sweater and a vest under a jacket is not only warmer, but you can adjust the heat by removing an item if you need to! A couple pairs of pants over the other will add layers of warmth. Long underwear comes in new fabrics that will be fit to wear in the winter and some of them are silky and comfortable to wear. The old standbys still work but a layer of wool shirt and pants over the standard cotton union suit is a must. Hats help keep body heat in and it is always good to keep a couple ready for use in the winter. A simple crew cap or wool scarf is great. Gloves and or mittens keep the hands safe. A few other things to do during the

cold weather is to make sure you have some moisturizer for dry skin, chap stick products for the lips, and hair products that add moisture to dry hair. Be safe and know that a buddy may save your life- and at the least make your days friendly and fun.

Newberry Habitat Warns: Where there is snow there is… By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter BIG BUSINESS! It is a booming business for snow plows, snow blowers, men with roof rakes and steady legs for walking through deep snow on roofs and for any number of other snow removal services being touted over the past two weeks. When we have a big storm that leaves lots of snow, generally there is a certain amount of time for getting control of the sidewalks, pathways, postal mail boxes and steps into the house. This year, most people were tired out with the first snow removal job and by the time- a few days later- that the second storm hit, there was not as much hurry and get it done activity in my7 neighborhood, but more


like a wait and see if we have to do this again in a day or two sort of attitude and now, after a couple of weeks of freezing weather, a little bit of thawing temperatures and refreezing, we are in for a real job! As a home owner or renter, you have a responsibility for clearing the sidewalks, mailbox delivery area and your own driveway. When the city contracts to clean the roads, they will plow the main road and leave a berm of snow in front of your driveway. If you just paid to have it cleared or shoveled for hours to clear the drive, it is aggravating to have to go out and do more snow removal again. What Continued next page

happens if you do not? The snow is very difficult to drive through because a snow plow will compact the weight of the snow, making it very heavy and hard to move. If you wait until the road is cleared before you have the snow plow remove the snow in your driveway, that is the smart thing to do, but when they cannot come when you want them to come other than in a wide time slot, you may be stuck for longer than you wish. Clearing your porch area, decks and sidewalks or paths every couple of hours through the actual snow fall will let you stay ahead of the problem, but it will mean that you will work several hours every time it snows hard. Considering the costs of snow removal, a little planning with a local provider might be your answer. Say you contact a removal business and contract to have snow plowed after 4 inches accumulate. Does that mean that every four inches they come back or one time a day maximum or does it have to be cleared out on work days only so you can get out of your drive way to go to work. Do they come with a fast large removal machine for a higher cost per hour and do a quick plow or with a smaller, less costly machine that stays longer? Do you pay from the time they arrive at your driveway or do you pay from the

time they leave the neighbor’s house? Who do you hire? Many folks advertise their snow plows in the ad papers. Some are members of the local Chamber of Commerce. How do you vet the person? Get a number and name and call and ask a few questions- including who on my street has used you and then call the neighbor for a reference. It is true that after a bad storm with lots of snow, it may be that you will have to use a person quickly and not have time to check, but prices should reflect a reasonable fee for doing the work in a timely fashion at a price that allows the person to do the upkeep on their equipment- hence- they are ready for the next time to help you again. Call the ad papers to see if they know the person in the ad. Check with your insurance carrier or the fire department about your responsibility for clearing your driveway and number sign in front of the house in case of an emergency. Snow is big business and serious business. Be careful and cautious not to over-do or get stuck with doing too much physical work that it causes you harm. Know your responsibility and stay on top of the work so you can enjoy the rest of what La Pine and Sunriver winter offers.

Quotes by Kahlil Gibran, Author of The Prophet “The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.” “To belittle, you have to be little.” “Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”
