Business Spotlight

Patti King -Tax Accountant Taxes have been Patti King’s passion for 30 years. As an instructor of the basic tax course, that prepares her students to take the State of Oregon Tax Board licensing exam. She believes that she can provide the state with ethical and competent tax preparers. Ethics in the tax field has been a crusade for her, she recognizes that there is a big problem with fraud, but also unscrupulous tax preparers taking advantage of their clients, or not preparing correct returns for their clients. She offers a free review of anyone’s prior return, no matter who has prepared it. She is a believer in client education as well, she feels that the more

knowledgeable her clients are in the tax laws, they better equipped they are to make informed choices for their business and personal income taxes. In her spare time, Patti enjoys working with animals, and spending time, on the lakes and rivers, fishing, kayaking or hiking. She will be going back to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, this summer for the third year in a row, with her fiancé, Gary. Photography is her other love. “I love being on the view finder side of the camera to try and capture a single moment in time, so that others can share that same moment”. She is always available to answer questions, even from someone doing their own taxes, and has a quick question on something they don’t understand or is new to their return. “There are no dumb questions in taxes”, she says. Patti King and her Fiancé Gary at Jenny Lake Lodge. It is one of their favorite places.

ODOT Projects U.S. 97 at Wickiup Junction

the exiting at-grade crossing and connect Burgess Road to the realigned U.S. 97 are the project components. (See photo front cover). U.S. 97 is a critical part of the State’s transportation system, and is classified as an expressway in the project area. Keeping highways in good condition and providing for safe travel are critical parts of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) mission. The at-grade railway/highway crossing on U.S. 97 at Wickiup Junction is the only atgrade crossing on U.S. 97 in the entire state. Drivers on U.S. 97 who are not familiar with the area do not anticipate having to stop for trains. Nor are they anticipating have to stop for school buses and vehicles carrying hazardous materials that are required to stop at railroad crossings regardless of whether a train is approaching or not. These create an extremely unsafe situation on the highway. This safety problem has forced local school buses to avoid this section of the highway and to have to travel out-of-direction to complete their routes. Currently there are on average 10-12 trains per day passing through Wickiup Junction. This is expected to increase over time. The traffic volume on U.S. 97 through the project area is currently at 10,000 vehicles per day, and is projected to increase to 13,000 by the year 2032. The traffic volume on Burgess Road east of Huntington Road was 3,050 vehicles per day in 2011 and is projected to increase as well. The increase in traffic intensifies the need to improve safety at the railroad crossing. ODOT partnered with Deschutes County and the City of La Pine to develop a solution for the safety problem at the BNSF/U.S. 97 railroad crossing at Wickiup Junction. A number of alternatives were explored but the selected near term solution is to realign U.S. 97 to the east of its current location and build a railroad overpass just south of the current at-grade crossing. New connections will be built for Burgess Road to the realigned U.S. 97 (see the current design map). In developing a solution for the railroad crossing, there were a number of goals and objectives identified by the agencies and the public that were considered. These include: • Provide a transportation solution that safely accommodates projected travel demands for all users and modes 20 years into the future. • Maintain mobility and minimize traffic delays for U.S. 97. • Minimize costs and maximize project value (costeffective solution). • Provide safe and reasonable access to area communities, Wickiup Junction businesses, and recreational destinations while minimizing out-ofdirection travel. • Maintain reasonable access between U.S. 97 and Burgess Road. • Consider options that improve bicycle and pedestrian movements in the Wickiup Junction area. • Maintain the viability of the current Park & Ride and consider the ability to expand the lot in the future. • Support Wickiup Junction’s role as a part of the City of La Pine’s commercial center for highway, recreational, and local traffic. • Minimize U.S. 97 traffic delays during construction, and address other construction related impacts to BNSF, the local transportation system and surrounding land uses. • Achieve consistency and compatibility with the Oregon Highway Plan, applicable objectives of the ODOT’s U.S. 97 Highway Strategy, and the Oregon Highway Plan expressway designation for U.S. 97. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

U.S.97: Sunriver Exchange to OR 31 Paving Project and La Pine Sidewalk Project Project Components:

Repave approximately 16 miles of U.S. 97 from the Sunriver Interchange (MP 154) to OR 31(MP 170) • Upgrade signs and guardrails, as necessary, and install rumble strips and durable striping • Construct sidewalks and streets cape elements on the west side of U.S. 97 in La Pine from just north of 3rd Street to 6th Street • Install rapid rectangular flashing beacons and raised medians in the City core Pavement Preservation ODOT plans to grind out the top portion of the pavement and replace it with 2-3” of dense hot mix asphalt concrete over the full width of the roadway. Safety improvements such as center line rumble strips, shoulder rumble strips and durable striping will be installed. Any portions of that section of highway that have been recently repaved or newly constructed will be omitted. Gaps in the sidewalks along US 97 in La Pine Sidewalk/Streets cape - The City of La Pine adopted a sidewalk and streets cape design that have been implemented in front of city hall and soon with the U.S. 97 @ 1st Street Project. With this project, the priority will be the west side of U.S. 97 beginning just north of 3rd Street and constructing new sidewalks/streets cape elements south to 6th Street (see diagram), or as far as current funding allows. ODOT and the City of La Pine will work with property owners and businesses to address access concerns related to the construction of new sidewalks and streets cape elements. The proposed project will create continuous and safe sidewalk access on the west side of US 97 through the City core, and enhance crossings which connect the schools with residences east of US 97 by installation of raised medians and rapid rectangular flashing beacons (RRFB). Traffic Control During Construction Paving is anticipated to occur at night to lessen the impacts on traffic. Lane closures, travel lane shifts and delays up to 20 minutes See ODOT Projects page 12

The New La Pine Community Action Team Assumes Newberry Eagle By Dan Varcoe

The La Pine Community Action Team is being reformed with, essentially the same mission as it previously held, to serve all of South Deschutes County and surrounding areas by assisting with supportive guidance and partnerships through collaboration. One of the first initiatives LCAT will support is the idea of a local area news hub. Its purpose will be the collection and disbursement of local news and information. Recognizing that a newspaper is highly valued and needed in a community, Sandy White Jones has taken the steps to release the ownership of The Newberry Eagle, a

local newspaper, to an advisory committee to be operated in collaboration with the LCAT organization. The arrangement is not new, as The Newberry Eagle was started in (circa) 2002 as an economic vitality tool for the area, under the umbrella of La Pine Community Action Team and later was transferred to a private operator prior to Ms. Jones ownership. Any parties interested in serving on the LCAT Board, the News Hub or The Newberry Eagle publishing committees should contact Dan Varcoe at 541-771-9177 or Ashley Williams at 541-280-3426.

Letter from Outgoing Newberry Eagle Editor in Chief Sandy Jones-White I have sold the assets and released the operations of the Newberry Eagle to a local nonprofit organization. I have every confidence that the members of this new organization will renew with vigor the timeliness and content of this great community asset. The Newberry Eagle, the local newspaper of Newberry Country is here to stay. South County, including La Pine will continue to receive it’s local tabloid newspaper. When I acquired the operation in August 2009, I was excited about the possibilities. I put a team together with my daughter Wendy Howard, reporter Teri Myers, business partners David Harms, and Dan Varcoe. When Dan came aboard, he created the newspapers new tag line: “The Local Newspaper of Newberry Country.” When Deschutes County wrote the South County plan, they decided to name the area “Newberry Country.” The planning department, in a La Pine town hall meeting at the senior center, said the new name was inspired by the Eagle’s tag line. The team, inspired by Dan, also innovated exciting changes. These changes included a broadsheet newspaper with sports, and robust news. Then the Eagle Highway Magazine was published for 2 years. That publication’s purpose was to bring rural communities

together, attract visitors, and generate primary dollars in not only La Pine, but also other Oregon Wendy Howard, and Sandy Jones-White rural towns. Now, with the new LCAT group (see article right) La Pine’s Newberry Eagle will be stronger. The group has stable plans to continue with robust local news for the community. Although I will continue to help with the creative department for awhile, this issue is my last one under my ownership. I have been a graphic designer since 1983, and will continue to do this type of work for businesses, focusing on book authors. I am also illustrating a series of children’s books. I would like to thank everyone that contributed to the paper for the last six and a half years under my ownership. There have been many contributions, and believe me when I say that everyone is appreciated in my heart. Owning and operating the paper has brought me close to the community of La Pine, and to know many wonderful and kind people. I love this town. - Sandy

La Pine By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

Chamber Connection A Reminder for Businesses and the Public: There are real Benefits of Chamber Membership! “Take Advantage!” In the March copy of the Bend Chamber news, Brenda Kelly, the Chamber President, wrote an article about being a chamber member and all of the benefits that are offered from the Bend Chamber. When we combed through the article we were surprised that so much of what they had to offer as a Chamber of 800 members was very similar to what our La Pine Chamber does for our own members. How do they compare? • Bend says you can add submissions to the business bytes in the business news. In La Pine we have the buzz. • They can advertise in the directory/Newsletter and here we can advertise in the Visitor’s Guide, the map and the newsletters and the rolling banners on the Buzz. • In Bend you can bring in a flier to distribute. Here you can send out a flier to all of the members with the newsletter and depending on the level of membership, you can send out more fliers. • They host networking opportunities and so do we! Our breakfast is well attended and we also host after hours events and other Chamber events for all members and their friends. • In Bend you can promote your business in parades, golf tournaments and other events and in La Pine we have many events where you can sponsor and show off your business. The Christmas parade is another way to show off your business, the banquet and inviting other businesses to visit your business after hours is another way to promote your business. • Bend has a business expo and we are working with the school district to do the same. • By getting on the Chamber website ( You can access all of the membership info and link

to national and state information with the state and national Chambers. • Our monthly newsletter also features upcoming events (like the weekly Buzz) • Your inserts and announcements go out to 450 emails and more snail mail recipients each month. Good advertising and timely at that! • You can donate items for fund raising events like the Annual Banquet auction and it helps to showcase your business when folks go to make their bids! • You can elevate your membership for even more Chamber benefits at every elevated level. • Our Chamber lets you be an ambassador out in the community and we have a specific program that “talks chamber” through trained individuals. They are instrumental in helping our local Chamber get things done! Attend La Pine events to get in the know! • You are represented with Government and state organizations by your Chamber board and the Executive Director to cover things that you need to know as a local business member to the Chamber. Your ED and the board work at all levels to promote our area, our vision and our mission whenever possible to bring tourist and residents and their businesses to our area. • Lastly, the Bend Chamber has some leadership classes for members and they host a variety of programs for women, men and special members. Can we do the same? If we are asked for it, we will find a way to provide these items… So the uptick on this article is that big or small we are an active chamber that provides the services of a much larger chamber to our local members. We will keep offering the services you ask for!

Irish Celebration and Easter

Irish celebrations and Easter are both in March! It is always exciting- after the darkness of winter, when the clocks spring forward to give us a little more daylight at the end of the day. It harkens to the coming spring and makes all of us Cabin fever sufferers feel a little relief. I found a recipe for simple Milk Cake and adding a little Irish cream to the chocolate frosting for St Paddy’s Day or a little lemon zest and juice to the frosting for Easter will allow you to use this recipe for both celebrations! Here is what you will need: Ingredients: 4 eggs, 1-1/2 cup sugar, 2-1/4 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon+ of Salt, 1-1/4 cups of whole milk, 1 stick of real butter, 2 teaspoons of good vanilla extract. Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 and coat a 9x13 pan with butter and flour. Beat the eggs until fluffy, add the sugar to incorporate. Put the dry ingredients together then gradually beat into the egg and sugar mixture. Melt the butter and heat the milk and gradually add to the

batter until mixed. Add the vanilla or lemon flavorings at the end and pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 + minute until a test toothpick comes out clean. Cool. Top with your favorite frosting and serve up with pudding, whip cream or ice cream for a great old fashioned dessert. I like this with a sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar and if I can get fresh strawberries or other berries, it is a good base for that fancy strawberry cake and whipped cream! Keep this recipe handy for all occasions. It is made from staples in the pantry and it is a great cake that you can make yourself. Easter is looking like a ham and lamb occasion this year! I have a favorite carrot casserole made from cut cooked carrots, parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs in a butter based sauce. I love fresh peas and a good greens based salad with green goddess salad. I add butter rolls and fresh butter, spring potatoes tossed with rosemary and butter, and then concentrating on the roasted ham covered with a brown sugar glaze (mix mustard, salt and pepper, brown sugar and orange juice to make a thick paste and spread over the ham during the last thirty minutes of roasting) I make a mints sauce with fresh (or dried) mintleaves, sugar, salt and pepper and equal amounts of water and wine vinegar (I am trying the rhubarb vinegar this year) and slowly cooked in a pan to make a smooth sauce to dip your lamb in. Lamb is always good for spring. I will do a sauce made of fresh rhubarb (frozen if you cannot get fresh) and strawberries to pour over my milk cake topped with whipped cream for dessert.

the Budget process is one of the most important things we do each year,” Chairman Gordon has explained. The sub-committee to explore resources for the LPRD reported their findings about a possible park levy. “It is recommended,” explained Tracy Ross, “that the district does not pursue a levy at this time.” Karen Miller is ready to open the District to accept Rosland Campground proposals from organizations or individuals/companies that would be interested in leasing the Rosland grounds and managing them for the district. “We would be sure to keep the public access as a component of any agreement that we would make with an outside source,” Miller told the board. “With the budget constraints we have in the district, it is prudent to explore these options at this time.” The annual fund raising Spring Dinner is set for April 29th (Friday) at the park building. There will be a no-host bar, dinner, and with the Hawaiian Theme for the evening, ukulele band and Hawaiian dancers will perform at the event. The LPRD is looking for silent auction items and cash donations to cover the expenses for the evening and add to the fund raising. Tickets are on sale at the LPCC office front desk and you can leave donations at the offices, too! This Summer there will be a new LPRD event in the park on July 9th. A Human Foosball event will take place on the 9th of July and you can sign up to be teams or individuals assigned to teams to play for the day. (watch for a teaser at the Frontier Days 4th of July event!) There will be vendors and healthcare professionals at this special event and the LPRD invites you to participate as an onlooker or gamer! In the meantime, LPRD is trying to raise a match for re-roofing the old John C Johnson Building. They have $10K and are looking to get donations to match for $5K more so they can save the building. If you can help with a donation call Karen Miller at 541-536-2223.


At the LPRF (Foundation Meeting), the Board moved to underwrite the LPRD Summer Children’s Program for 2016. “We need to remember that not all of the programs are self-sustaining and when it comes to Children, we need to keep a bridge of after school programs and summer options available,” explained Karen Miller when asking for funds. The LPRF will support the summer schedule of nine separate events and with the reaction of last summer’s participants, Miller is hoping that registration surpasses last year to help the LPRD meet the expenses for running the program. In doubt before the meeting, with LPRF behind it, the Summer Schedule is now a go! The day prior to this meeting, at the March 15th Board meeting, Chairman, Gary Gordon announced that the LPRD is seeking to fill the empty Board seat vacated by Joel Brader. (Joel served two terms as Board member). Applications are now available at the front desk and are due by 5 PM the night of the next board meeting on April 19th, 2016. The interview process has been set for the 26th of April. Board applicants should have knowledge of the budgeting and policy process for the District as well as some idea of transparency in public agencies, rules and regulations that the District follows and the time it takes to serve as a member of the board. The open position will be in place from the date of appointment through June 30, 2017. “This is a great way to support the community in an important position that will be part of planning the future of the district. Sign up as soon as possible if you are interested,” Gordon stated. The park board considered several other newsworthy items during their meeting. Karen Miller was given the official nod as Executive Director effective immediately. The budget is top priority at this time and a balanced budget is desired by the Board. “We need to be mindful of how we use the monies that support the District and


ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE, VETERINARY TECHNICIAN “Becoming a veterinary technician has always intrigued me as I have a love for both animals and science. “The best part of the vet tech program at COCC was taking the knowledge I learned in the program and being able to apply it in practice at our externships. I was able to go to a small animal practice and use skills that I had learned about in class. I was fortunate to also be able to do a

six-week externship at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, California. This center rescues, rehabilitates, and releases injured seals and sea lions. “The program works hard to give those that are motivated and that have a love for veterinary medicine, a chance to take the Veterinary Technician National Board Exam. It is a full time, very intensive program.”

THE PRAIRIE HOUSE CORNER Creating an environment where moments of Joy, Independence and Wellness are the focus of each day. By Sunny St. Claire, Contributing Writer

Meet Fred Evans and Daniel Frye Fred Evans

Meet Fred Evans who will be celebrating his 100th birthday April 2, 2016. Congratulations, Fred! He has been residing at Prairie House almost three years and is thriving there. Putting most of us to shame, I understand the only medications he uses now are eye drops and an occasional baby aspirin for a painful knee. With our technology advancements over the last 50 years, we are slowly losing the generations who can remember horse and buggy days, the first automobiles, World War I, clothes made from feedbags…..etc. Fred’s mom,Savannah, born in 1885 in Switzerland, came to the United States as a young girl through Ellis Island. Fred was born in Mountaindale, Oregon, an unincorporated logging town settled in the 1850’s. As of 1990, the only buildings remaining were the Mountaindale Store and school. He lived there until he joined the Army, serving stateside during his stint. His age and timing prevented his seeing any war action. When discharged, he moved to Coos Bay, Oregon and lived there almost 80 years. From a large family of 5 boys and 3 girls, he and a sister are still living. Annie is 96 and lives in Coos Bay. Fred married Rose Marie, now deceased. His clan includes three daughters (one deceased), a son, 9 grandchildren and 15 greatgrandchildren. He was a logger all of his life, falling timber and much later working on the landing. Still working hard at 70, he was forced to retire. Because of his age, the lumber company became concerned for his safety in such a physical and demanding job. Perhaps the secret to Fred’s long healthy life is hard work, his love of gardening and flower beds and creating beautiful furniture from myrtle wood. Oh yes, I also understand he appreciated a pretty face – and still does! Happy Birthday Fred! Keep that smile and the twinkle in your eye.

Daniel Frye Daniel Meet Daniel Frye, a resident of Prairie House for the last six years after suffering a stroke. At the time his brother told him he would never walk again, and his sister said he wouldn’t live long. Being a stubborn man, Daniel was challenged. Maybe that brother and sister knew what they were doing. Within a year he was walking with a walker, and today he is walking tall…..and still breathing! Born in Cottage Grove, Oregon, his family, including 3 brothers and 4 sisters, moved to McKenzie Bridge and lived on the river for 30 years. Over the years he was a jack-of-all-trades: managed restaurants, mechanic, carpentry, painting, masonry and rebuilding cabinets. Some of his favorite activities are fishing whenever he gets a chance, woodworking and singing. His voice has a wide range but he usually sings the base part. Daniel has three sons and one daughter, all living in Oregon. One if his proudest moments was helping to deliver his last son, a whopping 14 lbs. 8 oz. Ouch! His folks lived in La Pine for 20 years, and he watched out for them before they died. He is a friendly man with a big sense of humor, attends High Lake Christian Church regularly and walks in faith. You will see Daniel at Prairie House chatting with the other residents, teasing anyone he can and generally enjoying life. .

Newberry Habitat Planning Three New Homes for Qualified Families

Newberry Eagle Newspaper - The Local Newspaper of Newberry Country

La Pine Nonprofits to Benefit from Rotary’s June 3rd Event 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.

Habitat expanding their homeowner program to building three new homes in year 2016! The Newberry Habitat for Humanity affiliate of Sunriver/La Pine is currently planning to build three new homes in the La Pine area for the next three families that qualify for the Habitat Homeowner Program. The sites are being marked for water and utilities, and soon, Exact Construction General Manager, Steve Krebs, will be ordering the foundations for the three lots to begin the 2016 season. Within a few weeks, volunteer crews will be lined up to help with each step in the process from the lot fencing to building the foundation headers, the floors, the exterior walls and up to the roof! By the time we hit the month of May, the Annual National Women Build Event on May 7th invites local ladies to wield their hammers for a day of camaraderie and fun with a celebration of women’s talents and contributions to the Habitat Homeowner’s Program. After that date, every Friday and Saturday (except holiday weekends) crews will meet to work on the three new homes during the late spring, summer and early fall. While it is important to note that we have many returning volunteers that help build homes every year, we are on the lookout for new volunteers with a variety of skills levels to help volunteer this year. If you would like to be a part of the habitat team, please call our volunteer coordinator. Dan Varcoe, 541-771-9177 to find out you can join the team. When you sign on to help, you certainly can work any or all of the shifts, but a volunteer-

as necessary as you are- is not locked into every work day. So feel free to be flexible when you commit to the days you do work! The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to provide affordable and safe homes to qualified applicants. They work to raise monies for the materials and contractor fees and volunteers make up the rest! One of the things that happens every year is the way volunteers relate to one another. The people who work together become friends. So you end up getting friends out of giving your time as a volunteer! Habitat truly loves its volunteers. Nothing can happen without the hard work of the volunteer Board of Directors, office staff, home builders, salesmen and inventory specialists at the ReStore. Even the folks who pick up donations are part of the big picture. Our Executive Director and General Contractor work to coordinate all of the meetings, orders and services that Habitat provides. Their leadership provides a baseline for everything that Newberry Habitat does for the community! For more information you can look at the two websites: www.newberryhabitat. org and for current and up to date information about donating cash and gently used items, schedules for volunteering and the contact information you will need to join the team. Help us build La Pine one home at a time!

When you have been doing good for the community for 14 years, raising $500,000 for local nonprofits, can you make it better? Yes, says Harry Hamilton, local Rotary Club President. “It was time to take a fresh look at our annual fundraiser,” explains Hamilton. “We wanted to re-engineer our event to make it an even more special evening for the community.” ELEGANT NEW LOCATION Introducing the ROTARY WINE AND COMMUNITY AUCTION.

Crescent Community Club Celebrated its 60th Anniversary By John C. Driscoll Crescent Club Today

First Site Clearing This year the Crescent Community Club, located near the east end of the 58 Cut Off, on the west bank of the Little Deschutes, celebrates its sixtieth anniversary. The Club remains an institution that serves an area stretching from LaPine south to Beaver Marsh and west to Crescent Lake. The Club’s history also illustrates what community members can accomplish by pulling together for a shared goal. The history of the Crescent Community Club began during the first week of January 1956. The history of the Crescent Community Club commences on January 4, 1956 when Mr & Mrs G. W. Oxborrow and Mr & Mrs. Jerry Collier conceived the idea of forming the Crescent Community Club. Later that evening there were joined by Mr. and Mrs. Ray Koski and Mr. Lynn Hovey. The meeting concluded with a decision to hold a town meeting where they would present the idea of a community club that would serve north Klamath County and LaPine. The Club was intended to provide a location for constructive community activities. The first meeting of the Crescent

Community Club was held on January 9, 1956. It was held at the First Baptist Church. The idea for the club was presented and had already been approved. Officers were elected. K. A. McKenzie was the first president. G.W. Oxborrow was elected vice president. J. S. Collier was the Club’s first secretary and Charles F. Shotts was selected to serve as engineer for the construction of the Club. Club membership, as of February 10, 1956, totaled 132. The first Club Bulletin was published on February 13, 1956. In the first bulletin is was reported that the site where the Crescent Community Club now stands was staked out. Land for the Club was donated by K. A. McKenzie. Charlie Shotts of the Gilchrist Timber Company had already volunteered to serve as project engineer and to draft the building’s plans. During March of 1956 plans for the Crescent Community Club were submitted by Charlie Shotts. The plans were for a 50’x80’ foot building with a concrete floor and an arch type room. The plans were accepted. The first

Ground Breaking Ceremony

annual Wood Choppers Ball was held by the Crescent Community Club on March 30, 1956. It took place at Gilchrist High School. Site clearing commenced on April 21, 1956. The volunteers clearing the site also dug the building’s footings. Two weeks later the Crescent Community Club inaugurated its first recreational activity. Softball teams were organized for men, woman and boys. The excavation of the foundations was completed on May 19, 1956. On May 26, 1956 the Crescent Community Club presented “He Done Her Wrong Or Wedded But No Wife” and “Minstrel Maids And Men”. The production was stage and Gilchrist High School and was entirely a community effort that brought in volunteers from Chemult to LaPine to Crescent Lake. By the end of the year sports, including volley ball, dances, roller skating and theatricals had become established as Club staples. During June of 1956 timber for the Crescent Community Club was felled, milled then donated by the Gilchrist Timber Company. Concrete for the footing was also poured during June. A few weeks later, during August, the roof Continued next page

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.

Steve is working on the USDA submission. Ann is going to allow for some time at the Chamber breakfasts to promote Pillars. We need a few people who would be willing to put together a “role-playing skit” which demonstrates good and bad customer service as an advertisement for Pillars. Our next meeting is April 21st at 5pm, as we are now meeting every-othermonth (even numbered months) on the third Thursday.

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.

More News from the Small Business Action Team The Central Oregon Community College (COCC) Continuing Education department, including both Community Learning and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), are now offering noncredit classes in Madras, Prineville, La Pine and Redmond via live video streaming. Thanks to a generous grant from the COCC Memorial Education Fund/ Keyes Trust, equipment was purchased to make this opportunity possible. Due to lower enrollments, it has been a challenge to offer a variety of classes in the smaller rural communities of Central Oregon. With the use of conference cameras and microphones, some noncredit classes held on the COCC Bend Campus are now streamed live to students in classrooms in other locations. “This technology has been tested and proven to be a great option for students who do not want to drive to Bend, saving them time and money,” said Paul Stennett, COCC Continuing Education program manager. La Pine resident and business owner, Linda Stephenson, recently attended the Facebook for Business class that was streamed to La Pine. “Great class on using Facebook,” said

Stephenson. “I have used Facebook for marketing my business for four years and did not know there was so much more I could use this marketing tool for. “It is a shame that more businesses did not attend this live streaming class from COCC. No driving on the slick roads; it can’t get much more convenient than this.” Steve Curley, director of the SBDC, has been working with Stennett to bring more business offerings to the rural areas. “The COCC district is comprised of a large area that is mostly rural outside of Bend, and the streaming technology allows us to reach out to these areas to give more businesses access to these great educational opportunities,” said Curley. Beginning in April, 11 classes will be offered via live streaming in La Pine, Madras, Prineville and Redmond. These classes include iPad for Business, Search Engine Strategies, Marketing on Facebook, Marketing Creativity, Photography Composition, Business Start-up and more. For schedule information and to view an introductory video, visit continuinged/stream. To sign up and attend a local class via live video streaming, call 541-383-7270.

Continued from page 3 What is proposed Expand U.S. 97 to create a fourlane divided highway from S. Century Drive (MP 153) to the U.S. Forest Service Boundary (MP 159.2), located approximately 15 miles south of Bend, in Deschutes County. (see diagram below) Upgrade signs and guardrails, as necessary, and install rumble strips and durable striping. Construct wildlife migration improvements to protect wildlife and improve motorist safety. ODOT will work with property owners, stakeholder groups and the general public to collaborate on the planning, design and construction of the divided highway. More information regarding public involvement opportunities will be available soon. This project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

Divided Highway Cross Section

Romaine Village (cont) maintain adequate shoulder width. Once the widening is completed, the concrete barrier will be installed. There will be a gap in the barrier to facilitate visitor traffic at the High Desert Museum. There will also be an emergency services and snow plow turnaround near Lava Butte. Once completed, the median barrier will reduce serious cross over crashes. The section of highway between Romaine Village Way and the weigh station will have a 2” grind out and then repaved with a 2” dense asphalt inlay. Shoulder rumble strips will be installed once the paving is completed. Signs and guardrails will be upgraded where needed. Traffic control during construction Most of the work will be done at night to reduce the impacts on traffic. However, some work will be done during

the day and there could be lane closures and/or short delays. This project is scheduled to be complete sumer 2016.

To learn more visit: ODOT is also accepting phone calls to answer questions and get feedback from the community. Phone numbers may be obtained from the website project listings.

Mark Prell. Newberry Eagle Editor, Sandy JonesWhite did her stint as a server, Lynn Hatch, Delores Galbasini, and most of the Frontier Days Board members - especially secretary, Dayle Boucher and Linda Reid worked hard to welcome folks. Carol Blackwood and Sandy Jansen sold the 50/50 tickets and of course, Crabby Patty (Teri Myers) was there for selling a wide assortment of Crabby merchandise. “Not everyone can be named, but,” Ann and Gerald Gawith told the Eagle, “we could not do this work without these great and supportive volunteers. Every year we do the set-up and take down and all of the serving and preparation. It is a huge undertaking and these volunteers make it all possible!” Gerald added, “It is a great bunch of people!” This event is a well-planned, well-oiled machine. Ordering the retail items, the beverages, having a special crab pick-up over in Portland for the freshest possible crab cooked to order for the event, changing up the menu to be more upscale, organizing the schedule of the crews that serve and do the work for the event, organizing the seating areas for the Bottom Feeder Bar and the main

tables in the dining area is all plotted and planned with care. After 14 years, the organizers have learned a thing or two about how to make this work. “Luckily, we have few things go wrong during this event,” explained Gerald Gawith. “We have been able to do a few improvements each year so that when the folks arrive, there is a plan of action in place.” Every year the event is on the second Saturday in March (Mark your calendars for 2017!) People from all over the state come to partake, and we even had a group from the Eugene area have difficulties with the snowy roads. They went off in a ditch and as it happens one of our own, Mike DeBone, on his way to pick up 4H piglets stopped to help them. They showed up in time to enjoy the meal. “We wouldn’t miss it,” the three people told Crabby Patty. Customers are loyal repeat ticket buyers. Volunteers who are able to see nearly everyone they know in one place at one time, sign up again for the next year and organizing Frontier Days looks forward to seeing everyone again next year at this first of the season fund raisers for the Frontier Days Celebration for the 4th of July.
