Mayor Mulenex Decides Not To Seek Re-election in Nov. By Lynette Confer Editor
In a surprise decision, Mayor Ken Mulenex has announced he will not seek re-election as Mayor of the City of La Pine. Elected in 2010, Mulenex will have completed 6 years as Mayor for the City of La Pine at the end of his current term. “I had every intention of running again because there is still plenty to do that I felt my leadership could have played an important role in,” Mulenex stated. “However, when I started thinking about our family, our grandkids growing up faster than I can believe, the bucket list Vicki and I have that is still full, and some promises I had made, I knew I had to reconsider my plans.” Mulenex noted his decision not to seek re-election came only in the past two months.
Mulenex went on to say, “I am very comfortable with the fact the City is at a point where it can’t be detoured from growing into the plans that are already in place over the next several years.” Mulenex went on
Gordy’s New Owners
By Lynette Confer Editor
A landmark for residents of the Greater La Pine area, as well as for frequent travelers of Hwy 97 through Central Oregon, Gordy’s Truck Stop and Restaurant oﬃcially has a new owner. Built in 2000 by Gordon Wayne Wanek, Gordy’s has been a family-owned business until the sale. Wanek’s daughter, Wendy Potok, took over ownership and management of the Truck Stop and Restaurant after her father passed away two years ago. On June 1, OSG Freight Lines, LLC, assumed ownership of 21 acres, including
Freight Lines as they went to school, and after completing college, found they had an appetite to grow. “We moved into the SE Asia sector by air and by sea,” Sharma said. “By 1997 we became the fifth largest company in the SE Asia sector, today we are the 3rd largest.” Sharma came to the U.S. in 2000. He and his two cousins, Samit A. Soniminde and Amit A. Soniminde, launched OSG Freight Lines and Liberty Logistics in Atlanta, Georgia, as a sister company to OSG in India.

to describe the great honor it has been and the satisfaction he’s gained from his years serving as La Pine’s Mayor. “As Mayor of La Pine, I am very proud of the part I have been able to play in the accomplishments and progress we have made in making our City more livable, functional and welcoming. I think it really started on its current course when I came back from Salem with our approved Comprehensive Plan.” During his tenure as Mayor, Mulenex also recalls other projects he’s helped move forward including: Acquisition of our new City Hall; Starting the annual City Cleanup Day that was the original start of “Put the Shine on La Pine”; The landscape demo around City Hall that would set the tone for Hwy 97 streetscape through downtown La Pine; Transportation System Plan; Integration of Water and Sewer into the City; Senior Housing at Little Deschutes Lodges; Development and implementation of the La Pine Economic Development Group (LED); New traﬃc signal at First Street; the Wickiup Junction Overpass project; and especially the opportunity to build relationships with local and statewide organizations through numerous committee involvements, plus helping to maintain the city, county, and state partnership so valuable to a new city. The Mayor of La Pine is an elected, volunteer and unpaid position. However, Mulenex noted that the City does pay for his and Councilors traveling expenses to conferences and meetings across the state. “I put in as many as 30 hours a week into the job as Mayor,” said Mulenex. “That comes from serving on a lot of local boards, attending

La Pine City Council and Mayor tour Wickiup Junction Project on July 1.
A recent tour of the Wickiup Junction Overpass Project showed impressive progress from a few months ago. ODOT is on schedule and only a week or so away from completing the dirt work build up phase of the project, and will then focus on the structure of the bridge itself. Beams will be set for the bridge in late August. So far, crews are about 85% done with the dirt work on the embankment. 250,000 cubic yards of materials used so far for the embankment, with 263,000 cubic yards total planned for use in the project. Plans include embankment dirt work and bridge to be completed by October. No paving will take place this year, but rock will be applied over ground to protect dirt work through the winter. Paving and tie in to Hwy 97 will happen next year.
Public Use Restrictions to Help Prevent Summer Wildfires Central Oregon had a low snow pack this past winter, and as a result, the threat of wild land fires is both early-and possibly severe-for the 2016 fire season. On Wednesday, July 6, 2016, the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution to impose public use restrictions and declare a state of emergency, under the current dangerous wild land fire conditions. The restrictions will help prevent human-caused summer wildfires on all unprotected lands, and Deschutes Countyowned lands.

Mayor’s Corner Around the City
What a great 2016 La Pine 4th of July Celebration!!! It started with the 2016 High Lakes Car Club’s Show & Shine. It was held at La Pine’s beautiful Senior Center on the weekend prior to the 4th of July. What a turn out. There were so many beautiful old cars, rods, trucks and even refurbished old time travel trailers. I was honored to present the Mayor’s Trophy to Ray Mayor Ken Mulenex Kruger of La Pine for his exquisite Green 1938 Ford Sedan. Then, the 4th of July weekend brought on the spectacular Frontier Days Independence Day Celebration, from the great food vendors, to the craft booths, beautiful quilts, art show, some great local area bands, and another great ﬁreworks show. There was something for everyone! Of course, we are not “La Pine” without the “Greatest Little Rodeo” in the state. From the grand entry of the beautiful rodeo queens and princesses, mutton busting, great food and four nights of rodeo that was kicked oﬀ with an outstanding rodeo grounds packed-house concert, featuring the group “Lonestar”. It was terriﬁc! I’ve heard many who question the fact that the Rodeo has their music and Frontier Days has their bands and why don’t they join forces and do one music venue? I believe when those who question this really look closer at the two separate events, they will see that the music venue is speciﬁc and can’t be combined. I’ve stated many times that any community, and especially small communities, need many things but there are ﬁve that can and do make a closer, more informed community. A post oﬃce, library, city hall, newspaper and a radio station. I’d like to give kudos to Bill Scally, owner and manager of our local radio station KNCP/KITC for all of the great work he does to keep the station on the air and staﬀed with a whole group of outstanding radio-show hosts. Over the years, I’ve been on most of them and it’s been fun. While many hosts have been on the air for years, I’d like to give a “high 5” to my fellow San Jose State alumni, Tom Bradler, better known as “Dirt Road Tom” for his 5th year on the air. Atta Boy, Tom!

The Council also approved a 1.6% cost-of-living increase for City staﬀ. It is very possible the La Pine Branding initiative will ﬁnalize and present to the Council a new City Logo at the August 10th Regular Session. The Council will, at the August 10th Regular Session, work on ﬁnalizing and approving an agreement with ODOT for the Hwy 97 Streetscape and Transit Center location.

United Way of Deschutes County sets $900,000 funding plan for 2016-17 BEND, OR (July 20, 2016) – The United Way of Deschutes County announced today a $904,625 funding plan for 2016-17. The total funding package includes $588,967 to twenty-nine local social service partner agencies. Focusing on the building blocks of opportunity… Education, Health and Financial Stability… approximately $93,000 will be invested in programs that prepare children to learn and succeed in school and life. More than $267,000 will go to programs that help keep people safe and promote healthy lifestyles. Nearly $229,000 will go to provide a helping hand to individuals and families struggling to make ends meet. The remaining $315,658 in contributions goes to a host of other agencies specifically earmarked by donors. “It’s always a challenge to allocate the amount of unrestricted funds available among so many essential programs. This year the challenge was greater than usual”, said Executive Director, Ken Wilhelm. “The annual United Way fund raising campaign closed on June 30th at roughly $150,000 less than the previous year’s achievement. So, unfortunately, we are not in a position to fund partner agency programs at the same level as last year, let alone the level that we would prefer. In the whole we have 28% less in unrestricted funds available for agency partner allocations.” Wilhelm went on to say, “If the results
of the most recent campaign tell us anything it is that we need to move more quickly to a more collective impact model, working collaboratively with other organizations and partners to achieve visible, long term improvement on critical issues affecting the community”.

Inside City Hall: Meet the New Public Works Manager By Lynette Confer Editor Although not new to La Pine, Jake Obrist is new to his position as La Pine’s Public Works Manager. With over seven years of experience with water and wastewater systems, Obrist was hired for his new position with the City of La Pine on May 16. His experience began years ago in La Pine, when he worked from 2009-2013 for La Pine Sewer and Water District. In 2013, Obrist left La Pine Water and Sewer District as a Certified Level I Water/Sewer Operator for a job with the City of Bend as a Utility Worker for Water and Sewer. “It was my experience in Bend that helped me prepare for this position with the City of La Pine,” Obrist said. “Bend is a Level IV Water/Wastewater system with 23,000 service connections. La Pine is a Level II, with around 700 water and sewer hook ups. We need a Level II Operator here. I was able to gain that experience and certification during my time witht and needs a Certified Level II Operator to be in charge of the City’s system.” After a few years with the City of Bend, Obrist came away with his Level II Certification, which requires at least three years of field experience and study, as well as passing State Board exam. “I loved working for the City of Bend,” Obrist noted. “I gained experience there with that system that prepared me for coming back to La Pine and managing our system here. The system in Bend is large and I got to experience weekly failures with the system, just normal stuff, but it also gave me a great range of experience and opportunities to learn.” Along with management of the City of La Pine’s water and wastewater systems, Obrist is also responsible for streets, signage and storm water drainage, among other things. He noted that he enjoys getting out with his guys and being hands-on, working hard right alongside them. “I like to work, we have a fun crew and get a lot done,” Obrist noted. “I don’t mind getting in there and working hard to get the job done, whatever it may be.” Several projects are on the horizon for the City of La Pine Public Works Department. The first is work that has already begun at Wickiup Junction. “A new sewer lift station, called the Wickiup Lift Station, is underway right now,” Obrist
stated. “The main infrastructure is in now, and the purpose this lift station is to be able to access more capacity for growth in the Cagle and Glenwood areas of the City of La Pine. These areas are already part of the City, we are working to be able to expand water and sewer services out this way.” Obrist noted that this expansion of the City’s water and sewer system is a priority, but one with a $25 million price tag. The other priority is a new Septage Receiving Station. “Our present Septage Receving Station is a safety concern for our guys and for the businesses, like the local septic pumping companies, that utilize it,” Obrist said. “This item is on our City of La Pine Master Plan and a priority.” One thing Obrist takes pride in is the work that continues to improve the Downtown corridor. “It’s nice to see everyone taking more pride in their town,” Obrist said. “That sort of rolls into the work place. I want my guys to take pride in their job, in their job place, then naturally we take pride in all that is around us and learn to take care of it.” photo by Lynette Confer Obrist and his family have called La Pine home for 11 years.

The redemption value on containers will increase from 5 cents to 10 cents beginning April 1, 2017
In accordance with Oregon Law, the OLCC was required to evaluate state-wide redemption data for each of the two previous calendar years to determine if the number of beverage containers returned for the refund value was less than 80% of the total number of beverage containers that were sold in Oregon. Because the redemption rates for 2014 and 2015 were below 80%, ORS 459A.705 requires the refun value to increase to 10 cents. As required by law, the refund value will increase to 10 cents beginning April 1, 2017. The OLCC has calculated the statewide redemption rate for the following years: 2012: 70.95% 2013: 70.97% 2014:68.26% 2015: 64.45%. The redemption value on containers will increase from 5 cents to 10 cents beginning April 1, 2017

Why Does My Smoke Detector Chirp? Almost all homes now have smoke detectors in them, and for very good reason, they save lives (and property) by providing early warning of a ﬁre and the deadly products of combustion. However, at some point in time (and as luck will have it - in the middle of the night), the detector will “chirp” every 10 seconds or so. This is a self-check warning indicating that something is not quite correct with the detector and is one of three things: 1. Power. The main power circuit to the detector is oﬀ or the battery needs replacement. Note, even in hard wired models, there is a battery back-up. The battery is usually a common alkaline or lithium 9V style.

2. The detector needs a “dusting”. Over time household dust particles and/or even a small insect, like a spider, can get into the detector. This causes the detector to prematurely (false) alarm and/or go into the problem “chirp” mode. A quick once over with a vacuum cleaner wand ﬁxes this. 3. The detector has failed and needs to be replaced. Smoke detectors senor elements do not last forever. Recent codes now require replacement every ten years. All detectors have a manufacturing date on them. Also, Oregon State law now requires that with every residential real estate and/or rental transaction - the smoke detectors are certiﬁed current and new batteries are installed.

Rhubarb Festival Gives Oakridge Keg & Cask Festival Back to Community
By Candace Gray Contributing Writer
Many La Pine nonproﬁts beneﬁted from the recent 7th annual Rhubarb Festival produced by L&S Gardens. Several community agencies received free space and utilities from the Festival so that they could sell their wares and support their services. At the Senior Activity Center over 800 volunteer hours resulted in 900 delicious rhubarb pies, which were sold for a net proﬁt of $6,775! Among other community-based photo by Linda Stephenson agencies raising much The Rhu Dog volunteers, Sara Garrett on the left and needed funds during the enjoyable day were La Pine Carolyn Wallace on the right. Community Kitchen, the Lions Club, La Pine Rodeo, Friends of the Library, the VFW, and YaYa Sisterhood which held a large yard sale on site. Linda Stephenson, Rhubarb Festival founder and co-owner of L&S Gardens, remembered that “seven years ago I said to my husband, Sonny, ‘We have the facility, we have the grounds—what can we do to create something fun for the community and at the same time raise some funds for our local nonproﬁts?’ “ The festival has been growing each year since 2009, both in number of vendors setting up booths, and in participants. Three generations of the Stephenson family joined a large group of volunteers to put on the one-day festival. This year some 3,000 people shopped at the crafts booths, learned about community services, and enjoyed three bands, other musical groups, and the La Pine Line Dancers. The crowd purchased various rhubarbbased food and drink, including Sunriver Brewery’s rhubarb beer and wine. Bonta Gelato, a company from Bend, had a booth for the ﬁrst time and sold out of their rhubarb-strawberry cold treat early in the day. In the festival’s Food Court people enjoyed “eating for a cause.” Volunteer gourmet cooks from the La Pine, Salem, and Eugene Dutch Oven Clubs created an array of rhubarb-themed meats to try ($2 per ticket for a generous sample) and served full lunches as well. All proceeds from the food court – almost $2,000 – were donated to three La Pine youth groups: the high school wrestling team (to support their participation at upcoming national competition), FBLA (future business leaders of America – to help them attend the state conference) and the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program at the high school and middle school. photo by Linda Stephenson “Every year, people in the La Pine Senior Center Line Dancers perform. community suggest worthy groups to me,” said Stephenson. “I do some research, listen carefully, and then choose who will share in the contributions from the Festival. And we couldn’t produce this event-- and make money for nonproﬁt groups-without the support of our sponsors. They provide a variety of in-kind contributions and volunteer efforts, and as well as cash to offset our costs.” This year’s supporting sponsors included Bancorp Insurance, Diamond Bar Ranch, Fish with Gary, Jake Russell Excavation, KITC Radio, La Pine Signs, Little ‘d Technology, S & S Auto, and the Sasquatch Wildﬁre Team. As Stephenson considers next year’s festival, she is focused on attracting more sponsors and more volunteers. “We need both groups to grow so this community festival can continue,” she said. “And I’m also looking for a creative nonproﬁt who wants to offer, say, a hamburger booth. The group would keep what they make and it would widen the food choices at the event. “Of course,” Stephenson said with a grin, “any food or drink has to be based on that delicious and versatile vegetable—rhubarb!”

CAN Cancer Golf Tournament La Pine Community Health Center By Lynette Confer Editor Anyone who has had cancer touch their lives understands the burden, the fear and struggle to manage all that comes with a diagnosis for yourself or loved ones. While there are obvious sources to cover medical costs of treatment for cancer, nonmedical costs associated with fighting cancer can be overwhelming for individuals and families. Central Oregon is proud to offer help with such burdens through the CAN Cancer program. “Community Assistance for Neighbors with Cancer”, CAN Cancer, was established in 2008 by Gil, Stu and Corinne Martinez of Wilderness Garbage in cooperation with the Central Oregon Haulers, a group of garbage and disposal companies including Bend Garbage & Recycling, Cascade Disposal, High Country Disposal, Prineville Disposal, and Madras Sanitary Service. “In 2008 our son, Stu, started treatment for cancer and we would hear stories from folks who had to travel from outside the area for treatment.

have to drive back home. Some had to quit their jobs during because of the rigorous treatment schedule,” Martinez stated. “One night while sitting around the dinner table we decided we needed to do something to help these people, these neighbors. We all looked at one another and decided then and there to go to the people we knew best, the garbage haulers.” A few years later, Corinne’s husband, Gil, fought his own battle with cancer. “This just reinforced what we already knew, that there was a real need here in our community,” Martinez stated. According to CANcancer.org, “25 percent of those diagnosed with cancer lose their life savings trying to survive it.” Along with the Central Oregon Garbage Haulers, Martinez noted that some of the fi rst garbage haulers to come on board were out of the area, along the coast. Thanks to support across Oregon, CAN Cancer assistance is now offered statewide. Martinez explained that help is available for any non-medical expense associated with fighting cancer, including things like fuel costs, lodging costs, meals and many other things.

Oregon Grape - State Coop and Garden Day Coming Up Flower of Oregon By Candace Gray Contributing Writer
By Linda Stephenson the Newberry Gardener The state flower of Oregon looks like holly and grows throughout much of the Cascadia. Anyone who spends time in the woods from Northern California up through British Columbia is familiar with its prickly green leaves, bright yellow spring blooms, and the tart berries that form in clusters in summer. It’s not exactly trail food. Pick a few berries on a hike and you’ll experience a lippuckering flavor that gives a new meaning to the term sour grapes. But tame it with sugar and you’ve got a whole realm of culinary possibilities. Oregon-grape is not a true grape. Though it’s dark blue berries hang in grape like clusters, that’s where the comparison ends. The various species or Oregongrape are also known for their medicinal qualities. The two species commonly found in central Oregon forests and landscapes are the tall Oregon-grape (Mahonia aquifolium) and low growing Oregon-grape (Mahonia photo by Donna Confer nervosa). These varieties are very hardy, stay evergreen throughout the year and the deer don’t seem to find them Oregon Grape, with berries ripe for picking and making a ﬂavorful jam. especially tasteful. Both varieties are part of the Berberis genus, which includes a variety of species commonly called barberries and which are renowned for containing berberine, a compound with cancer fighting and anti-depressant properties, among other medicinal benefits. I love to experiment with native, edible berries in my jam and jelly making. Yes, Oregon grape makes a very flavorful jam. I picked five pounds or so from a patch in the Cascades last week. I see lots of this shrub around homes throughout central Oregon. To make Oregon grape jam I recommend you wear gloves when harvesting and pick a good quantity of the berries. Use containers and utensils that won’t stain. Wash the berries and remove any large stems or other leafy debris. Put the berries in a stainless steel pot and add just enough water so that the berries are barely covered. Boil for 5 minutes until soft, run through a food mill in batches. The food mill should separate the juice and pulp from the skins and seeds. My measurements: 5 cups Oregon grape juice and pulp 4½ cups sugar Juice of 1 lemon (optional) 1 oz. powdered pectin Follow instructions on the Pectin label for processing in a hot water canning bath. Yield: 3½ pints photo by Linda Stephenson While Oregon grape preserves look and taste a lot like Beautiful jar of Oregon grape jam your standard grape jam, the flavor is more complex and from locally grown berries. full bodied.
Vicki’s Blue Ribbon Apple Pie By Vicki Mulenex Contributing Writer
Get motivated! Be inspired! No matter what you’ve heard about growing fruits and vegetables in our “weather-rich” part of Central Oregon, some of your neighbors are experts and eager to share their experience. Other local residents have perfected raising chickens, as well as ducks and rabbits. Explore the 13 area homesteads and businesses listed in the $10 booklet (admission for a carload is included – as well as a raﬄe ticket). Booklets are sold at shops and stores throughout our community. You can also purchase a first-ever cloth bag ($5) adorned by Sandy Jones-White’s charming rooster graphic, just waiting to be colored! You may well need the handy bag – some host homes will be selling homemade / homegrown specialties. If you want to enlarge your contribution to the local agencies that will benefit from this all-volunteer educational event, buy a $40 tour bus ticket and leave the driving to the SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center). They are donating a 20-seat bus and driver for the day, which will start at ReSTORE for breakfast and then go on to each of the sites. Folks who want to make their tour especially relaxing will also receive a fun goodie on the bus. Tickets are available at ReSTORE Monday-Saturday (9:30am -5pm). Get yours before they sell out! Three La Pine nonprofits will benefit from the money generated from the one-day event: the ReSTORE (enjoy coffee and donuts from 8:30-10:30am); the La Pine Community Kitchen (serving a special Saturday healthy lunch, $5 donation, from 11:30am-1pm), and the Little Deschutes Grange (enjoy free homemade desserts from 3-5pm. Four local, custom-made raﬄe prizes will be drawn at 4 – no need to be present to win!) “We have five brand new hosts this year, “said Pam Cosmo, a founding member of the event. “One of them, Dan Baily, is having remarkable success raising a variety of berries and several nut and fruit trees—in the ground!” Another stop is the Community Kitchen, where Pam and her
husband Pat Murphy donated several years’ worth of rabbit and chicken compost this spring. Spearheaded by Darlene McDonnell, volunteers then used many donated vegetable plants and many hours of work to create a high volume plot. The Community Kitchen staff, volunteers, and clients are enjoying the bounty. “The garden supplements the meals we serve to area residents in need,” said Kim Hafermalz, executive director of the agency, and co-chair of this year’s endeavor with Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone. Tour participants need to know that there are no restrooms available at any of the home host sites. Arrive at your first home of this self-guided tour (you can visit just the homes you’re most interested in – or tour them all in no particular order) after 9am. The last stop’s visit should start by 2:45pm at the latest. This is the 6th annual Coop and Garden tour. The 2015 event brought in $2,669 for the beneficiaries. “We want to top $3,000 this year so each of the beneficiaries can count on a minimum of $1,000 to support their mission,” said “Kim from the Kitchen.” Area residents who participate come away with new knowledge and renewed enthusiasm. You can grow fruits and veggies in our area of Central Oregon! You can raise happy, productive chickens and other animals! More details about the event are at www. lapinecoopandgarden.com

When I heard about La Pine Frontier Days Apple Pie Contest (Baked & Beverage), I decided to do my old family Apple Pie recipe and enter. Many people have said that it is great, but I was still surprised when I was told it had won the Blue Ribbon. It’s pretty simple and I would like to share it with everyone and hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.

Rodeo 2016 Wrap Up
Native Traditions to Support Veterans
By Candy Yow La Pine Rodeo Association President
By David Clewett Contributing Writer
La Pine Rodeo had four action filled days over the 4th of July starting with our Concert on Friday July 1st bringing Lone Star into La Pine. The evening started with Nashville recording artist Brian McComas’ followed by Lone Star who brought the house down. They played all the great songs but when they got to “Amazed” a good friend Chris Osage had @2016 ValentinoMoon Photography worked with us to do his Proposal to his girlfriend. I think there were few dry eyes La Pine Rodeo Association President, Candy in the crowd after that, and she said yes!! Yow, carrying the Honor Flag at the July 4 Rodeo. Lone Star stepped it up again and played for an additional 30 minutes after the Encore. What a great evening with friends, great music, a beautiful sunset what more could anyone ask for. Saturday July 2nd brought us our Buck & Boom night, a fun filled night of rough stock riding. This night was dedicated to the memory of Ed Herman, a stock contractor we have used the past few years. We brought in a few new acts this year and they were a hit. We started with 1 section of Senior Bull riding, bringing in the big boys to set the mark. The bulls were leading 5-1 after the first section. Then we brought in our Jn. Pony bareback riding for the little kids, followed by Pee-Wee pony bareback riding. Between smiles, cheers and some tears they all walked back feeling much more like a real cowboy after it was over. Just when you thought the little ones couldn’t do any more we brought in our MiniBulls, full grown bulls the size of a Shetland pony!! This is newest hit to Rodeo and 2-Bucks Rodeo brought us some good ones! What a great event, we will definitely keep this one in our rodeo! But the action was not over yet, Jr Bulls put on quite a @2016 ValentinoMoon Photography show with only a couple qualified rides, then off to our second section La Pine Rodeo 2016 was a huge success for all those of Sn Bulls. When the dust cleared who attended, competed and volunteered. the bulls were winning, only 1 qualified ride in the Sn. Bulls and 2 in the Jr Bulls and 1st place in both went to the same guy!!! This lucky cowboy ended up with 3 buckles, all the money and a rifle!!!! Well worth coming to La Pine Buck & Boom for him, congrats! This all followed up with After Party with Brian McComas. Well that might have you feeling tired but we have two days to go yet. Sunday was our NPRA Rodeo and CAN Cancer Night, Claude and Mitchel Rickman brought in some awesome stock and it was action packed. The stands were full for the rodeo as well as the 50-50 raﬄe to help with CAN Cancer, when it was all over the winner would have won $1,340.00, but he gave it back to CAN Cancer with Bud Kendall matching it. What a great evening of doing good fighting cancer as well as having an incredible rodeo, followed once again by After Party with Brian McComas. Monday July 4th brought Parade in the morning, and rodeo action again at 5 pm, starting with Mutton Bustin. These little ones bring the house down as they ride the sheep, then march in front of the crowd showing off their buckles they win. The stands were full as we started our Grand Entry, tonight honoring our Veterans. Shawna Gardner from the La Pine Rodeo Board sang the National Anthem. We had veterans, ROTC, and County dignitaries in the arena also. What a beautiful tribute to all who have served our great Nation past and present, as well as those who paid the ultimate Sacrifice. La Pine Rodeo President carried an Honor Flag that has all the names of those we have lost just in the last war, humbling is what it is to read all those names and its just in one war. Makes you appreciate what our Service men and women have given us. La Pine Rodeo Queen Mickayla McKelvie and Princess Charissa Bates carried the American & Oregon State flag, as the arena cleared, hats were put back on and tears dried, Rodeo Announcer Kedo Olsen stated “Lets Rodeo”. And so we did, another great year of rodeo, friends, sunny weather and action packed fun, leaves us wondering how we can make it even bigger and better next year. Thanks to all the La Pine Rodeo Board for their hard work and sacrifice this year to put on a great @2016 ValentinoMoon Photography weekend for all of La Pine and South Volunteers for La Pine Rodeo Association honor the Deschutes County, it was well worth American Flag as it is carried by before Rodeo begins. the efforts!
The 8th annual Native Village Cultural Encampment will be held August 18-22 at the Deschutes River Campground at the base of Mt. Bachelor. The event is intended to provide a Native American cultural experience as a means for healing. Experts will offer seminars on several skills vital to the Native American way of life including weaving, making and using a medicine bag, drumming, storytelling and history lessons. Nakima Geimausaddle is currently the Celebrating Traditions secretary based in Fort Still, Oklahoma. She is the originator of Native Village which first began in La Pine in 2008 and has since expanded to a nationwide program. Ms. Geimausaddle returns to her home town of La Pine each year to work with fellow veterans at the event. Geimausaddle is Titonwan Lakhota, Odawa and Sicilian. Geimausaddle explained that the event began as a way of sharing Native American traditions to help US Veterans cope with the traumas of their service. “Our family is made up of nearly all veterans. My father, my brother, myself, all 3 of my children, 29 first cousins, and 4 out of 8 of my husband’s brothers. Nearly all of us are combat veterans enduring various forms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The drugs and counseling offered by VA was not curing the problems for any of us so we joined together and returned to our Native American Traditions. You never heard of Natives having PTSD and the reason for that is we talk about what happened in war. We re-enacted feats of valor and we honor veterans at every powwow in appreciation for their service,” Geimausaddle said. Geimausaddle served in the US Army, National Guard and Army Reserves for over 18 years between 1981 and 2000. “As we began to help others, we found that it helped ourselves as well. We come back to La Pine each year to host the annual event, but now we are helping veterans coming home from combat at Fort Sill, OK; Sheppard Air Force Base, TX, and Whiteman Air Force Base, MO. All this from the humble beginnings in La Pine,” Geimausaddle said. There are many elements to the event which is designed toward a healing process based in Native American traditions. “For returning veterans, they will be

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” Eph. 4:4-6 We invite all to come and learn of these things.
taking the things they have learned from previous encampments and using that knowledge to help the new veterans and their families attending,” Geimausaddle said. Geimausaddle explained the itinerary for the program. “The first phase of the program will be to take our veterans and family members out into the forest and using our permits we will harvest Lodge Pole Pine for the tipis. Second phase we will use our permits to gather sweat lodge rock. Third phase will be a public seminar hosted at the American Legion Campsites where our veterans will teach attendees how to erect a 20’ tipi, explain how the tipi was used and transported, and answer questions pertaining to how several tipis would serve as a home for a family. In addition, we will set up our traditional powwow drum, and offer the audience an opportunity to sit at a powwow drum and learn real powwow drumbeats,” Geimausaddle said. Veterans will be coming to La Pine from Florida, Oklahoma, Washington, Michigan and Arizona. The event is dependent upon volunteer assistance with 53 volunteers in Oregon and 184 nationwide. Walter Albuschie is a Veteran, member of American Legion Post #45 in La Pine and a volunteer for Native Village. “The general public is welcome to come. You don’t have to go to war to have a problem dealing with situations. We are open to everybody and want people to have a place to go and heal. It is a place where people can feel comfortable,” Albuschie said. Volunteers like Albuschie have been hard at work fundraising, obtaining permits and securing campsites in preparation for the program. A benefit Bingo fundraiser including a Frybread and Comanche Meat Pie sale will be held with the intent to ease travel expenses for the veterans attending the encampment and to raise funds for the La Pine American Legion Post #45. There will be over $2,000 in prizes and everyone is welcome to attend. The event is being hosted by a non-profit organization called Celebrating Traditions: Native American Arts and Cultures, Inc. and the Crossed Arrow Society Program. Cohosts include La Pine American Legion Post #45, Bend Fort Rock Ranger District and Cascade Timber. To register or get more information about the event please call 541-536-5933.

Sometimes you have to try different approaches to catch fish. One of my often successful alternatives during warm summer days, when the fish move to deeper waters, is to suspend a balanced leech under an indicator. A regular leech pattern hangs in a lifeless looking manner. But the unique nature of a balanced leech makes the fly look more lifelike and results in more takes. Leeches are a very sizeable portion of a trout’s diet throughout most of the season. courtesy photo They present themselves in an undulating The Author with a nice Brown Trout from swimming motion near weedbeds and other Wickiup Reservoir on a Cinnamon Leech subsurface locations, often pausing this pattern. motion for extended periods. Opportunistic trout prey willingly on this food source. An angler can easily imitate this undulating motion by taking short strips of a balanced leech pattern under an indicator, with pauses in between strips. Stopping the movement periodically is often when a trout takes. Experiment with depth and speed variation in your retrieve to find out what the trout want on a particular day. If the wind is creating nice ripples on the water, the up and down motion from the indicator also creates a perfect swimming motion. Leeches account for some of the larger fish I land each year!

Sunriver Art Faire For the 7th year, the Sunriver Women’s Club will be sponsoring the Annual Art Faire on August 12, 13 and 14, with over 70 artist booths exhibiting art in 10 different mediums: ceramics, glass, jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, woodworking and mixed media. This large variety will present shoppers with many opportunities to purchase wonderful pieces for themselves, as well as gifts for family and friends. According to Lee Haroun, Artist Liaison for the Sunriver Art Faire, “The word about the Sunriver Art Faire has spread throughout the art community, both locally and nationally. This year, we will be welcoming 29 artists new to the faire. The artists are coming from near and far, the furthest away being artists from Texas, Minnesota, and Kentucky, who will show their works in photography, painting, and metal sculpture. Of course, we are also looking forward to seeing our
local northwest artists who apply to attend the Sunriver Art Faire because they love the venue and our support for philanthropic efforts. The Sunriver Women's Club does its best to make the faire a wonderful experience for both the artists and the attendees. As one of the artists who has participated in the Faire for several years tells us, "I do 9 shows a year – yours is my favorite. You take such good care of us." While browsing the artist booths, attendees can also enjoy professional entertainment on the stage, including music in jazz, country, classic rock, swing and easy listening. After grabbing dinner at one of the many local restaurants, Street Dances on both Friday and Saturday night will provide a great finish to a day of art and entertainment!

Classical Pianist To Visit Central Oregon SUNRIVER, ORE – Don’t have time to take in performances of the National Symphony Orchestra (Washington D.C.), the Colorado Symphony, the Utah Symphony, or the Oregon Symphony? Don’t worry, just take a short drive to Sunriver and listen to world-renowned pianist William Wolfram kick off the 39th edition of the Sunriver Music Festival on Sunday, August 7th. Highly sought after for his breathtaking performances of the music of Beethoven, William Wolfram has appeared with all of these orchestras and numerous others around the world. Winner of the silver medalist at both the William Kapell and the Naumburg International Piano Competitions and the bronze medalist at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow, he is bringing his considerable talent to Central Oregon for two special performances. “Bringing world-class talent like William Wolfram to our area is why we’ve earned the reputation of being Central Oregon’s professional classical music experience,” explains Pam Beezley, Executive Director of the Festival. “We are thrilled to showcase William’s awesome talent in two performances – one with the Festival Orchestra and a second performance with our Festival Concertmaster Steven Moeckel.” CLASSICAL CONCERT I - Sunday, August 7th 7:30 p.m., Sunriver Resort’s Great Hall. Pianist Wolfram will lead off this year’s Festival series with a performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1. The world-class Sunriver Festival Orchestra will also perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 Pastorale and Dvorak’s In Nature’s Realm. PIANO & VIOLIN SOLO CONCERT - Tuesday, August 9th, 7:30 p.m., Sunriver Resort’s Great Hall. Wolfram returns in a stunning collaboration with violinist and Concertmaster Steven Moeckel performing Liszt’s Dante Sonata for Piano, Franck’s Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano, and Beethoven’s Sonata No. 9 for Violin and Piano (also known as the Kreutzer). Violinist Steven Moeckel’s uncanny ability to capture the very essence of a work has been hailed by critics worldwide. As concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, his ability to engage audiences in an astounding range of repertoire distinguishes him as one of the most versatile young musicians of today. BONUS: PIANO MASTER CLASS – Monday, August 8th 6:00 p.m., Sunriver Resort’s Great Hall. The class is free and open to the public. Pianist William Wolfram will instruct a piano master class for �ive advanced piano students. “For nearly four decades, the Festival has supported educational opportunities for youth and this will be a special opportunity to share in the magic of the next generation learning from a master,” adds Beezley. As educator and teacher, Wolfram is a long-standing member of the piano faculty of the Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina, and a regularly featured guest at the Colorado College Music Festival in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He also teaches a performance class at the acclaimed Manhattan School of Music.

Community Stars Theater Fall Production
Sunriver Stars Community Theater is pleased to announce their Fall Season Opener, 'Give My Regards To Broadway'. The star spangled musical, directed by Cheri Redgrave, assembles chorus members both past and present for the last production at an old Broadway theater. The producer is struggling to find funds for the final show until he suddenly receives a mystery check. Mary, an aspiring young actress, shows up looking for her big break. Trixie tries to rekindle her romance with The Doorman, who spends too much time at the track. Gangsters show up asking for information. Where did the money come from? Was it Mona, the famous actress who once broke into fame at the old theater? Perhaps it was Betty, the Southern Belle or Eydie, the long suffering piano player? The George M. Cohan musical will feature a live band, a first for The Stars! Crowd pleasing hits include 'Give My Regards To Broadway, Yankee Doodle Dandy, and You're A Grand Old Flag'. Song, dance and a stellar cast of local talent align to make for a memorable night (or day) of theater! The show will run September 30th, October 1st and October 2nd, 2016 at SHARC.To purchase tickets or find our more information please visit www.sunriverstars. org
