 I Don’t Know What We Would Have Done Without La Pine Community Health Center

Hundreds Help Celebrate LCHC’s Expanded Space

By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer

“I’m thrilled with the turnout of community members, patients, and our collaborative partners and local businesses,” said Charla DeHate, CEO of La Pine Community Health Center. She is shown (above right) with Stacey and Rachel Stemach, whose firm Stemach Design & Architecture designed the 5,400-squarefoot addition to the Huntington Road facility. A crowd numbering almost 250 people was given a guided tour of the new space, which is designated primarily for ancillary services and administrative offices. (As demand increases, the design allows for future remodeling to create additional patient exam rooms.) A large conference room, being used for staff meetings and health-related classes, is also available to community groups – at no charge.

“I got an appointment for my dad to see a doctor at La Pine Community Health Center (LCHC) the day we arrived in La Pine,” marveled Colleen Scott. “Working with social services, the staff was also able to enroll him in Medicaid in two hours, so he could be admitted to Prairie House Assisted Living without delay. We were blown away.” Scott added that “having a multi-disciplined facility such as LCHC here is such a boon. Instead of going into Bend each week for my dad’s blood tests, I simply drove him the severalblock distance from Prairie House. “The people at LCHC, including his wonderful doctor, were

so kind to him. We really felt connected here.” “In retrospect,” admitted Scott, “I don’t know what we would have done without LCHC – it’s a great facility.” “This hands-on service is one of the advantages of living in a small, rural town,” commented her husband, Mayor Dennis Scott. “And someone even answers the phone when you call!” LCHC, with facilities in La Pine, Sunriver, Gilchrist and Christmas Valley, unveiled its expanded La Pine structure during a well-attended open house. Consisting primarily of administrative offices, it features a large conference room that is available at no charge to community groups.

The Greater La Pine area has one of the largest Veteran populations for its size in the state. There are several veteran organizations in La Pine. You’ll find them listed herein. These organizations do a lot to assist our veterans and veteran’s widows with service connected issues, from helping them with their VA benefit paperwork & medical services, to fire wood. In these issues of need, there are some of our veterans who have experienced more complex issues and experience hard times readjusting to life out of the military. The La Pine Band of Brothers (BOB’s) maintain the Central

Oregon Veterans Outreach office that pay’s particular attention to these veterans. The Vets outreach office receives donations of all kinds from other veterans and the greater La Pine community that is then made available to needy Veterans. They provide small stipends for gas, up to 3 days in a motel, tents, sleeping bags, small bottle propane, clothing and a host of other items. So, donations to Vets Outreach go to Veterans real needs. I would like to tell you about an amazing “Young Giver." At a recent Band of Brothers breakfast meeting at Gordy’s, I met, 8-year old, Stevie Hall and her parents Kelly and Robert.

Labor Day is known as the three-day weekend that marks the end of summer. People often mix it up with Memorial Day, simply knowing both are long weekends that serve as bookends to the summer. But a day off work is rarely linked with a holiday to celebrate working in the first place. Labor Day is a celebration of the labor force and a grateful nod to the people who made our work lives what they are today. Through the late 1800s, as industrialization began taking the place of agriculture as the nation’s future industry, working conditions were the sacrifice of increased production. Bigger machines and more workers began to fill factories whose walls were not growing any wider. Workers, including children, often toiled through 12-hour days and seven-day weeks for just a dollar or two a day. The working conditions were even more appalling than the hours. “Puddlers, the skilled workers who tended the blast furnaces, routinely endured temperatures exceeding 160 degrees,” wrote John Gurda of workers at the Milwaukee Iron Company in 1881. “The workers had few defenses. There were no electric fans, because there was no electricity. The furnace crews generally worked bare-chested with Turkish towels wrapped around their necks to soak up some of the sweat and leather straps over their hobnailed boots to prevent burns from spilled iron. Every worker downed two to three buckets of ‘oatmeal water’ during his shift, usually laced with lemon juice.” A Milwaukee Sentinel reporter on site wrote, “none but the men who

March 2018. “The international hospitality component – the regard and diplomacy we show our visitors – is just as important as the wrestling matches. As the organizer, I don’t want to let them down, and am counting on people in the community to become engaged.” Kerr has identified five areas in which people can participate: transportation; accommodations (ideally visitors will stay with families that have wrestlers); food; attending the competitions; and helping to fund gear packages (including trophies, medals and good-will gifts). Kerr’s son Derrick recently returned from Russia, where he and his wrestling teammates “were treated like Olympic athletes,” said Kerr. “Although the high schoolers were a little apprehensive about the trip, they returned feeling close to the people they met in Russia. “They bonded in ways we couldn’t even have imagined beforehand. It was amazing. My goal to is create that same shared mentality – right here in La Pine.” Those interested in learning more, or signing up to participate, should contact Kerr at 541-408-6112 or dudewheresmytshirt@

the group boarded its plane for Moscow. Ahead of them was a 15-day, multi-city trip that combined wrestling matches and cultural experiences set up by host families. When the entourage arrived in Moscow, fanfare awaited just outside the aircraft as they were toasted with a traditional drink -- horse milk. “It was nasty,” Kerr admitted. “The same ceremony took place in each of the seven or eight towns we visited – sometimes, I was on the verge of throwing up.” According to 16-year old Kerr, who had never been outside the U.S. before: “Our hosts took care of everything, and treated us very well. “Wrestling competitions are a way bigger deal there,” he added, “attracting as many as 3,000 – 4,000 people to the matches. And the audiences were very, very loud. “Anywhere we went, people wanted to take a picture. And when we attended dances at local schools,” noted Kerr, “the girls were really interested in us. “It was a way different experience and, in retrospect, not that scary.

Habitat for Humanity of La Pine Sunriver Where Volunteering Counts By Staff Writer (with permission)

Valerie Best

Habitat Build with Bancorp employees Valerie Best, Megan Tiller, and Jared Hall frame up some habitat homes! Each year Bancorp Insurance in La Pine, OR selects a non-profit organization to support with volunteer services. This year Bancorp Insurance chose to spend their time volunteering each Friday (and some Saturdays too!) to help build the new Habitat homes located off Skidgel Road in La Pine. Habitat for Humanity of La Pine Sunriver (HfHLPS) works with the greater La Pine community families to ensure they have options for affordable housing. Through the hard work and efforts of businesses, families, friends

and individual volunteers, these homes come together over several months! Each “qualifying family” has to agree to a set number of working hours on their own homes and others. Hours from friends and family help towards their overall number, but there is also a percentage they have to complete themselves as well. HfHLPS is quick to point out that all of the volunteering effort helps keep construction costs low! No-interest loans, along See Habitat Build page 19

Councilor Karen Ward Submits Letter of Resignation By Staff Writer Karen Ward, one of five members of La Pine’s City Council, has submitted her letter of resignation due to health reasons. Born in St. Joseph, Missouri, Ward moved to La Pine in 1996 with her husband Doug. “We often came here to visit my sister and brother-in-law, and fell in love with this wonderful small town,” she reminisced. Initially Ward was appointed to the City Council and then elected to her current position. She always tried “to do my very best to serve the people – this is what it’s all about.” Upon the death of her husband (who has been described as a valued participant of City government through his service

on the City Council & Planning Commission), Ward threw herself into her regular position as Senior Center Manager & City Councilor. Throughout her tenure on the city council, Ward maintained her hope that La Pine would retain its “small town feeling”. According to Mayor Dennis Scott: “Karen was easy to talk to, and added her gift of common purpose to the council. She has been a real asset to the community.” Recent past-Mayor Ken Mulenex added that “Karen’s commitment to public service will be sorely missed as future tough decisions come along.”





The City of La Pine is currently accepting applications from individuals that are interested in serving on the La Pine City Council. The individual that is selected will serve through December 31, 2018. This is a volunteer position.

Hard Hats, Shovels & Speeches at St. Charles Groundbreaking Ceremony

Wake-Up Call Underscores Need for Infrastructure Project: $25 Million Now Secured to Move Forward By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer

Dignitaries from St. Charles and La Pine’s Capital Campaign Cabinet (which has already raised $947,000 toward its $1.5 million goal) hoist ceremonial shovels at the groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Charles Family Care Clinic. By Staff Writer “There has never been an effort in south county before to raise this amount of money,” asserted Vic Russell. “Contributions now total $947,000 – with our goal of $1.5 million well within sight.” Speaking at the official groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Charles Family Care Clinic, Russell (co-chair of the Capital Campaign) admitted that “it has really been a stretch for me to ask for money. But I’ve learned to persevere. The journey has been a team effort to make our community a better place to live.” Joe Sluka, president and CEO, St. Charles Health System, echoed the sentiment. “This newest expansion of our facilities in Central Oregon has been a partnership with La Pine from the beginning.” He added that “population growth has created a lot more demand for the services we provide – including 24 specialty areas. ‘In addition to our new facility in South Bend, the patient tower on our northeast campus will nearly double the number of

intensive care unit (ICU) beds by 2018. The multidisciplinary team we’ll have at the La Pine facility embodies the future of health care.” “This is pretty cool. I’m happy to be here today,” said John Weinsheim, president, St. Charles Medical Group, as he surveyed the crowd of attendees. “We’re looking forward to serving La Pine and its neighbors throughout the region – an area currently totaling 25,000 people.” (This includes Sunriver, Gilchrist, Crescent, Chiloquin, Chemult, Christmas Valley, Silver Lake and Fort Rock.) In her remarks, Kathy DeBone (a member of the Cabinet Committee), noted that the need for health care in La Pine and surrounding communities “will only become greater” as people continue to move into the area. She also pointed out an ancillary benefit: “the creation of new jobs and possible career options for our young people.” Vic Russell summed up the collective sentiments: “This is a great day for La Pine.”

When a vehicle hit a fire hydrant near the city’s wells and main water storage tank two years ago, breaking a line, water was shut off for more than six hours. All 700+ accounts that used city water (about two-thirds of households and 100 percent of businesses and schools) were affected. Standing in front of a map showing the site of the shutoff, about two miles east of La Pine’s city limits on Finley Butte Road, City Manager Cory Misley crossed his fingers. La Pine currently has just one main water line to “We currently have just one service the city. Two wells (at 254-foot and 252-foot main water line to service depths) and a 1.2 mg (million gallon) reservoir funnel the city. Two wells and a through it. incorporated as a city in 2007.

2nd Annual Art & Wine Festival Transforms Prairie House Courtyard By Staff Writer

Interview edited by Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer “As Mayor, I’m going to be very active in helping enact necessary ordinances,” prefaced Dennis Scott. “It’s part of the process of building a city. Ordinances deal with maintaining the public safety, health, morals and general welfare of its citizens. Examples here in La Pine include landscaping requirements for new construction; the number of animals allowed per property lot; prohibiting roosters within the city limits; and getting rid of obnoxious weeks – just to mention a few. “In other communities, local government have regulations such as not allowing open containers of alcohol in city parks, or forbidding unleashed dogs while not on private property. “As La Pine grows, more ordinances will naturally be added. And for that

We have to lead by example – just as the Fire District did in spraying its property to eradicate any sign of knapweed.

reason, we need as much community input as possible,” continued Scott. “I can’t emphasize enough that public input – through the city council – will help determine what new ordinances are passed. “We don’t enact them to harass or police people,” he added. “La Pine’s noise ordinance, for instance, is designed to protect residents from being kept

awake all night by loud partying. It’s not intended to punish anyone. “Another example is keeping sidewalks clear of snow in the winter. Unless shoveled, sidewalks can pose a real threat to young and old alike.” Scott provided a third scenario: “Historically, the county has sprayed our roadways each spring to rid them of obnoxious weeds such as knapweed. They didn’t get here this year and the weeds have proliferated and become a serious problem. “Credit goes to Shine on La Pine volunteers who tried to educate people about eradicating knapweed. But the problem is overwhelming without the help of every citizen,” he said. “The situation has proved a catalyst for positive change, as we’ve decided to take on this responsibility ourselves. The City is setting aside necessary funds to purchase a piece of equipment with a spray unit. From now on, Public Works will take care of city property and streets. We have to lead by example – just as the Fire District did in spraying its property to eradicate any sign of knapweed. “Although La Pine is only 10 years old, it has been steadily evolving – and local government has to respond accordingly. We’re now putting increased effort into zoning and ordinances so La Pine can grow and be run as a city should be run. Yet we can’t be a police agency,” advised Scott. “Ordinances have to be respected by the people who live here in order to make them effective." “If we all participate, La Pine will grow as defined by its people. Now is not the time to sit silently. Get involved – let’s all do this together.”


arah Jackson, RA, pours a glass of white wine for Sarah Jackson, whose mother Dee Cavanaugh and aunt are both residents at La Pine’s Prairie House Assisted Living and Memory Care. “Being here has made the biggest difference in my mother’s life,” said Jackson. “Before we brought her to Prairie House to be with her sister Milly, she was in a nursing home in Arkansas – where she didn’t even leave her room. My mother participates in everything here.” (In addition to having a selection of wine and art, such as bird houses and ceramic planters, Prairie House offered tours of the facilities to attendees.)

Hogs & Hares Members “Live & Breathe Their Pigs” By Staff Writer Jarred Dyer, oldest member of La Pine’s Hogs & Hares, is captured in a rare moment of repose with his pig (named “E”) during this year’s Deschutes County Fair. Looking back over five days spent at the fairgrounds, leader Taryn Tennant listed just a few of the challenges faced by her group. “Some of our pigs didn’t make weight (which she attributed partly to the cold winter, and their being born smaller and later than usual – plus a five-pound increase in the weight requirement). Another factor was having to

stand in line for 2.5 hours to be weighed – one pig lost eight pounds! “One of our kids brought the wrong pig, but was allowed to go home and bring back the registered one,” enumerated Tennant. “A mom gave birth two days before Fair, and the other mothers “adopted” her two oldest boys for the duration so they could compete. We were confronted by animal activists. And my husband, whose truck ran out of gas on his way to bring food and supplies, was driven into the fairgrounds by a sympathetic policeman. The kids were astounded when

he emerged from the back seat of the vehicle. Next year will be easy in comparison.” Tennant credited two other moms – Andi Rojo and Tiffany Dyer – as being “amazing. We were covered in poop, mud and sweat, but managed to keep the kids fed, the pigs alive, and get everyone where they needed to go. “Through it all, our group persevered, and really bonded as a result. I couldn’t be prouder,” she said. “We’re already looking forward to next year.”

Towne Pump: “Thursday the 17th was crazy, and didn’t let up at all. I only got in half a cigarette the entire day,” observed Kevin Hildebrand of Towne Pump. “We normally do well, but we tripled our numbers. Someone even gave me a popsicle out their car window, which I really appreciated. It was the only sustenance I had during my entire shift. But I had fun.”

Central Perk: “We had so much business, it was insane,” commented Liberty Ramsey, barista extraordinaire at Central Perk (located at the intersection of Highway 97 and 6th Street). “Many of the out-of-towners didn’t realize that CPN is a cardlock fueling network, like Pacific Pride, and thought we were a gas station. Some of them actually cut in front of our coffee customers – asking if I could fill their tank! It tested my patience – but I survived.” Grocery Outlet: “We definitely were busy,” noted Brett Turner, owner (with his wife Gina) of Grocery Outlet. “Our checkers were abuzz with all the visitors from different countries, and one counted six different languages being spoken in one day alone!” Chamber of Commerce: “Visitors were coming at a regular clip in the days leading up to the eclipse, and pulled out all the maps that were displayed outside our office,” recounted Ann Gawith and Teri Myers of the Chamber of Commerce. “They came from as far away as Germany, Australia, England, Canada, Brazil, Finland, Holland and Belgium. We met lots of nice people.” Gordy’s Truck Stop: “We stocked up on thousands of dollars’ worth of extra food in anticipation of eclipse traffic – which didn’t materialize,” said Brett Whitman, Manager of Gordy’s Truck Stop. “And even though our parking lot was full of vehicles during the peak four-day period, business was actually slower than normal.” La Pine Community Health Center: “The people who came in for medical help were so thankful that they didn’t have to drive through heavy eclipse traffic to Bend in order to be seen. We were pleased to be here and ready to help them.” Charla DeHate, CEO of La Pine Community Health Center (LCHC), estimated that almost two dozen patients took advantage of LCHC’s decision to remain open during the two-day weekend preceding

Liberty Ramsey of Central Perk the solar eclipse. “Our walk-in clinic was also much busier than usual with southbound tourists on Tuesday. “We collaborated with the City, which allowed us to put up sandwich boards in two strategic locations. That’s how patients knew we were open,” continued DeHate. “We also met beforehand with the Fire District to apprise them of our plans, and so 911 could refer people to LCHC. This kind of partnership will be critical in the event of other large-scale challenges such as the anticipated Cascadia subduction zone earthquake.”

Local Entrepreneur Makes Hay While the Sun Doesn’t Shine By Staff Writer

“We were real happy stocking the eclipse t-shirts here, and having our logo on the back was great advertising.” Alan McCormack, of the popular Karen’s Grounded Café, said that customers were equally pleased. “As an example, a local patron insisted, ‘I’ve got to have one of those!’ If I had more sizes, we could have sold an even greater number.” Also available at the Chamber of Commerce in the days preceding the solar eclipse, the t-shirt (available in three different designs) was the brainchild of graphic artist Sandy Golden-Eagle. “I’ve always loved art,” she explained, “particularly helping businesses market themselves, and bringing their ideas to life.” As editor of the Newberry Eagle, she credited an article in a past issue by Helen Woods as the inspiration for her entrepreneurial venture. “Its title, ‘the sun is gone,’ was my muse.”

Sandy Golden-Eagle at Grounded Cafe Woods agreed to let Golden-Eagle use her title – in exchange for a free t-shirt. “I had no idea if this effort would be successful, but my initial run of 96 shirts almost sold out.” She plans to produce more of the original designs, and is already working on other ideas. “Many years ago, I was given a prophecy that I would bring people joy with my art,” shared GoldenEagle. “I never imagined that t-shirts would be one of the vehicles for doing so!”

were hosting the family to a birthday party for Stevie. It seems that recently Stevie had her 8th birthday and received $40 from her grandmother. Shortly after that Stevie joined her mom Kelly on one of her frequent donation trips to the Vet’s Outreach office located in the La Pine Square Plaza with a donation of a case of propane bottles and some ground tarps. Serving at the Vet’s Outreach office that day were BOB’s President and acting President of the Vet’s Outreach office Frank Hernandez, BOB’s Vice President Jim Brainerd and BOB member John Peterson. While there Stevie heard about some of many kinds of needs and

Labor Day cont from front page have worked in these great hives of human industry, among immense furnaces and molten and seething metal, have any conception of the heat which a millhand has to endure while at his hard and tedious labor.” Similar conditions were found in all industries from mining and logging to construction. Safety technology offered little respite and after a while, the workers had enough. But instead of asking for better conditions or higher pay, all they wanted was a shorter workday. The push for an eight-hour workday began with the Industrial Revolution and the adopted slogan, “Eight hours labor, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest.” But advocates quickly realized that cutting back from 12 hours to eight hours was a lofty dream. In 1835, 20,000 carpenters, miners, bricklayers, painters and other professionals in Philadelphia called for a 10-hour workday. Their wishes were granted along with increased wages. Recognizing that this success would likely trickle into a labor movement across the country, the federal government quickly got on board by passing an eight-hour law for federal employees in 1868. Meanwhile, Milwaukee, with its industrial economy, became a stronghold for a chapter of the Eight-Hour League. Labor successes in the Brew City were quickly followed with tragedy. On May 4, 1886, workers held a protest rally in Chicago’s Haymarket Square. When police arrived at the rally to disperse the crowd someone threw

a bomb, killing seven police officers and at least four civilians. The Bay View tragedy in Milwaukee – the state’s most violent labor conflict – came just a day after the Haymarket Affair. At least 1,500 workers marched on the Bay View Rolling Mills after shutting down nearly every other business in the suburban neighborhood. Governor Jeremiah M. Rusk ordered 250 state militia to stand in their way. They were told, “Pick out your man, and kill him.” Seven died in the conflict and the eight-hour movement died with them, for the time being. Instead of marching, labor advocates took to politics with congressmen and state legislators from the People’s Party elected into office that fall.

The proximity of the Bay View Tragedy and the Haymarket Affair gave a harsh new weight to the labor movement. Labor laws as we know them today didn’t come around until the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938, part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. Before the success of organized laborers seeking better working conditions, governments agreed to give the laborer just one extra day off. The first Monday of September became a national holiday by act of Congress on June 28, 1894. Although many local governments were already giving their municipal employees a day off to celebrate the American worker, the act of

Congress was more of a bargain than a blessing. When a strike of the American Railway Union (ARU) threatened to leave postal railways unfinished, President Grover Cleveland ordered 12,000 troops to crush the disobedience. While the ARU dissolved after the conflict, many believe Cleveland granted the national holiday as an apology for the 30 people killed during the strike. It is hard to think that such terrific violence between industry workers and government could give rise to an enjoyable weekend of picnics, boating, fireworks and music.

Poetry by Montana Charlie


Do horses Cry? Do they feel pain? When grass turns dry and there’s no rain. Or do they cry when mussels strain With effort spent are racked by pain! When heaving sides and lathered hides Prevent their bodies gain. Do horses cry as they turn their rumps, Towards winter’s icy blast; Or do they wait till wet with rain They can hide their tears at last? Do horses cry when we their friends grow tired, Of their keep, and ship them off to chicken feed Never missing a night of sleep! Do horses cry when whips and spur, Ask more than they should give, When small box stall And a dirty pen is where they’re asked to live.

entral Oregon is blessed with beautiful pine tree forests as far as the eye can see. This ecosystem supports a lot of different bugs, including ants, hoppers and beetles. This knowledge is important to the fly fisher, as during summer, terrestrials become active and are an important food source for hungry trout. This food source is happenstance. Terrestrials by nature don’t live in water. They live in fallen timber and other detritus on the forest floor; often near our lakes and rivers. Many beetles fly, but not always very accurately. A gust of wind at the wrong time will send a big beetle plopping into the water. That “plop” provokes an opportunistic trout to take these beetles on the surface with reckless abandon. Beetles come in many different sizes, shapes and colors. For this month’s pattern, I tied a Black EZ Foam Beetle. This pattern, as its name suggests, is easy to tie and is a very effective pattern on many of our local lakes and rivers. I tied this fly on a size 10, standard dry fly hook. You can vary this from size 6, to as small as size 14’s and 16’s, as there is a lot of variability in the size of beetles in our area. I use peacock tail feathers for the underside of the abdomen and thorax of the beetle, which gives it a very buggy color. The foam on top floats the fly effectively. The wing is tan elk, and a tag of orange poly yarn makes this fly easy to see. Lastly, the legs on this pattern are flex floss, which vibrates, and that movement drives trout crazy. Fish this pattern by cruising the edges of lakes and casting close to the shore. Alternatively, fish the grassy banks along our local rivers. Delicate dry fly casting is not necessary with this fly; in fact, the opposite is preferred. Plop this fly down heavily on the surface of the water. Trout will react to the “plop” and take the fly with a reaction strike. There is something heart-

stopping about seeing a big head of a nice East Lake rainbow or brown trout coming up aggressively to take this fly. Fishing these big easy-to-see flies is something I look forward to every summer. EZ Foam Beetle Materials List: Hook: Tiemco 100 or Daiichi 1180, Size 10 -12 Thread: 210 Denier Black Thread Abdomen and Thorax: Peacock Barbs off a Tail Feather Foam: Black 2MM Closed Cell Foam Wing: Blond Elk Legs: Flex Floss - Black Tag: Poly Yarn in Orange or Chartreuse

Embracing Oregon L ocated just 30 minutes north of Bend in the quaint little ranch town of Terrebonne is the world renown Smith Rock. A monumental sight, 651 acres of conglomerated rugged peaks, with smooth tuff and basalt cliff faces, an overabundance of hiking trails, as well as, manicured walking paths all overlooking the cool and refreshing Crooked River. This historical location, was named after either John Smith the lawman or John Smith the soldier who fell to his death here in 1863, this long heated debate among the locals will forever remain a mystery. Smith Rock State Park offers something for the entire family. If you just want a place to go for a leisurely walk, there are paths throughout going in every direction. Picnic tables are all over the entrance of the park and along some of the paths prior to the river crossing. Known as one of the best Sport Climbing areas in the United States, people actually come from all over the world to experience the over 1800 climbing options Smith Rock has to offer. These climbs range from beginner to “Are you Insane!” In the park, there are 12 official trails to hike, these trails are rated from easy flat to difficult terrain, and range from one half mile to just over 7mile loops. Some of these trails can be dangerous due to the terrain so be sure to stay within your fitness level. Mountain biking trails are also available, but be forewarned mountain biking Smith Rock’s biking trails are extremely strenuous and at a skill level of intermediate. So, if you are not a serious mountain biker, just keep your bike at home, no shame in staying safe. If you plan on camping, that too is available at the Park. It is tent camping only, and is on a first come first served basis. The charge is only $5.00 per person per night, no campfires allowed, ever! And lastly, that Crooked River is said to be the best river in Central Oregon to be introduced to fly fishing. With 3000 trout per mile in addition to those spectacular canyon views how could one not love the attempt to land a record breaking rainbow trout.

(such as the USDA) only want to back projects that they’re confident will be successful.” In addition to completing multiple funding applications, Misley pointed to success in obtaining “good loans, with 40-year terms at low interest rates of two percent or less.” The resultant grants and loans (totaling approximately $22.2 million) will be augmented by City of La Pine contributions of some $2.5 million. Of the total $25 million amount, approximately $10.6 million is targeted for water systems improvements, and $14 million for wastewater. Securing funding leads directly to the next step, also expected to take about a year. As Misley explained, “the city will hire an engineering firm to design the project, based on La Pine’s master plan. Bids will then be solicited for construction. Our goal from today is to have construction begin in spring 2018.” Misley emphasized that “for a city this size, the sewer and water project is the most critical one we could be working on right now. Something of this magnitude dwarfs everything else.”

as annuals and you can always hope that they may come back in the spring. Due to their tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover, garden mums are perfect for mass plantings. To get maximum effect from a distance, stick to only one or two colors. Another possibility is to arrange a gradual transition of related colors. Look around your yard to see what colors would best complement the existing landscape. If you decorate for fall with pumpkins and gourds, choose orange, bronze, yellow and creamy white mums. If you have a lot of evergreen plants that provide a backdrop of varying shades of green foliage, try bright pinks, lavenders or reds. With such bold colors, a large grouping of mums can excite even the most drab fall landscapes. Beautiful mums are available at L & S Gardens in La Pine.

Business Spotlights Central Oregon Tax Connection (COTC)

By Staff Writer Central Oregon Tax Connection has been an active business at their current location on 51575 Morson Street for over 20 years. Terry Osborne, the current owner, said she became interested in Business Accounting early in college. She approached Carol Zettel, who owned COTC at the time, to ask her what she needed to do to get into Business Accounting. Carol gave her directions on what courses she would need. Terry completed all requirements and Carol hired her after graduation. She continued working for Central Oregon Tax Connection even after Carol sold the business in early 2008. About 2½ years ago, after 9 years as an

employee, Terry had the opportunity to buy the business. While some of the staff has changed over time two of the originals, Lou Zettel and Melanie Slater, are still there. Lou said he still found it to be extremely rewarding and a pleasure to work for Terry and with the great people at COTC. Terry and Lou agreed that following the end of the economic down-turn, they have seen an ever-increasing growth in business and felt that it is due to a resurgence of new businesses and families coming into the community. Terry said that with the current growth in La Pine, both business and residential, COTC has added staff to meet that increase. Terry explained that, except for auditing, COTC provides a full range of business and personal tax services, consulting, accounting and fullservice payroll. So, if you need of any tax, accounting and/ or payroll services give them a call 541536-1317.

Debbie said she enjoyed working with Joe and it was sad that he wasn’t able to cut hair anymore. She also said that Joe dropped in, once in a while, to see how things were going. Currently, Debbie is assisted by Paulette Smith. It was a good move, Debbie said. Business has really picked up. They are open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Both Debbie and Paulette invite you to drop by for a haircut and a homemade cookie!

Donna’s Seasoning for Ground Pork By Helen Woods, Staff Writer

While shopping at the grocery store, I always look at the ground pork and wonder what I could do to this bland tasting meat to make it more pleasing to the palate. My friend Donna served ground pork seasoned with these spices and it was great! Ingredients 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 1/2 teaspoons paprika 2/3 teaspoon garlic granules or powder 1/3 teaspoon fennel seeds 1 teaspoon black pepper Optional 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper Directions Blend the spice mixture in a food processor or, for chunkier bits, simply stir them together. Store in an airtight container. To use, mix the spice mix with 1 pound of ground pork. To let the mixture “season,” chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours before using. 1 serving

Grandparents Day By Staff Writer

September 10, 2017, National Grandparents Day, is a day for young and old to honor each other, and an opportunity for civic engagement for all generations National Grandparents Day falls each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. It’s not a holiday invented to sell cards and flowers. It was initiated at the grassroots level by West Virginian Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, with the behind-the-scenes support of her husband Joseph L. McQuade. They had 15 children, 43 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. After being married for over 60 years,

Mr. McQuade passed away in 2001. Mrs. McQuade passed away in 2008.

There are three purposes for National Grandparents Day: To honor grandparents. To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children. To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer. Mrs. McQuade wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying small, private gatherings, perhaps even a family


reunion, or participating in community events. On a societal level, National Grandparents Day gives us a chance to publicly affirm the identity and importance of grandparents, that they do play a vital role in families.

It is also a day of giving – giving of self; sharing hopes, dreams, and values; and setting an example and advocating for future generations.

Cookbook Review cont from page 16

I’ve tried many of the recipes and each and every one has turned out great! As a Dutch oven officionado for going on 20 years, I echo the author, “Like ole Cookie sez, ‘Iffen ya aint et outa cast iron ya ain’t et yet.’” The Cookbook and recipes are presented with an old western flair. It features Cookie and Smokie, humor abounds, and the recipe layout is easy to read.

Since I love chili, the following, from Chapter 16, “Blow Ya Away Chili” will provide a taste of what I’ve described above. I recommend this to everyone who has ever seen a cowboy movie with a Chuck Wagon and all of my Dutch Over friends The book is spiral bound, 149 pages and can be found on Amazon, new or used, for about $9.00 plus shipping.

September 7 Craig Johnson gives 2 presentations at SHARC for The Western Star, latest in his Longmire series, the inspiration for the hit TV drama Longmire. Shows are at 2:30 PM and 6:30 PM. Reservations are required; call 541-593-2525 or email sunriverbooks@ to see if space is still available. Currently we have some spaces available for the matinee and with changing plans it is possible spaces will open for the evening show. The Western Star moves between two time frames, current day Sheriff Walt Longmire, Deputy Vic Moretti, and former Sheriff Lucian Connolly head to Cheyenne where they unite with Henry Standing Bear, combing a visit to Walt’s daughter Cady with an attempt to stop the release of a prisoner. Along the way they meet some officers for a drink and a little conversation. One of the cops notices a picture of the Western Star in 1972 with a group of Wyoming Sheriffs and one lone deputy, Walt Longmire. Memories take Walt back to his first days as a deputy, boarding the legendary train with his mentor, Sheriff Lucian Connolly for a trip not all the lawmen survive.

pet of the Month for September Dean & Sadie Viewing the Eclipse

Jarvis is a loving 8 year old Domestic Shorthair cat looking for a home that can continue to provide him with the care and attention he needs. This handsome fellow sadly arrived as a stray, so we don’t have any history about him. Jarvis had a few health concerns when he arrived here, so he spent time receiving the care and medical treatment to get him healthy again and ready for a new home. Jarvis has been a sweet and friendly cat the whole time he has been here at the shelter!

Dean Sathrum, Distribution Manager for The Newberry Eagle, witnesses the oncein-a-lifetime eclipse at the Round Mountain Fire Lookout, while his dog, Sadie, is much more interested in the resident chipmunks’ unusual activities during the event.”


BPA Will Raise Wholesale Power Costs October 1, 2017 Renita Cuevas, Midstate Electric Cooperative, Contributing Writer Every two years our power supplier, The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) engages its customers in a rate setting process for its wholesale power costs. BPA provides 100% of MEC’s wholesale power. The cost of power from BPA is by far the largest single cost we incur and accounts for over half of the amount you pay on your monthly electric bill. BPA is still working through the rate case and we will not know the exact amount of

the rate increase until later this summer. We are working closely with BPA through organizations that represent our best interests to keep any rate increase at a minimum. Once we receive the final rate increase from BPA, MEC’s management will conduct a revenue requirements and cost-of-service study to help determine what our rates will need to be to cover the cost of power, as well as the balance between covering our fixed costs through the energy charge verses the facilities charge. At MEC, raising rates to our members is not taken lightly. You can be assured through this process, the board of directors and staff are doing everything in their power to keep your rates low while still providing you with safe, reliable and affordable electricity.

Real Estate

Need to Sell your House? Don't forget these Tips

By Fred Jaeger, Contributing Writer Here's another look.. at some fundamental tips that should be kept in mind in order for your property to be sold quickly, while maximizing your return on investment:The first and most important step in selling any Real Estate is toMaximize Curb Appeal. The importance of the first impression cannot be overstated. If a buyer is put off by the first glance, the chance of swaying that person by the end of a showing is negligible. That is, if they're even willing to exit the car in the first place. I can tell you from experience that many a home showing has ended before even pulling into the driveway. Make sure the outside is clean, free of debris and, of course, trash. Get it painted, do whatever you can, including possibly hiring a landscape architect and/or designer, to not only make suggestions, but execute a plan to make the house look its very best from the outside. This might sound a little extreme, but the investment in experts of this kind may result in profits far exceeding their fees. Inside, reduce the clutter! Keep in mind that your task now is to stage it for sale, not necessarily make it the way you want to live in it. Get rid of nearly all personal knick-knacks, family photos, and that stuffed Elk Head on the wall. Your family loves that 4x4' portrait of Aunt Helen, but potential buyers can be distracted by personal items in the home. Once potential buyers have begun criticizing the decorating, you've lost them. Again, the value in getting professional help for staging a home is, more times than not, well worth the cost. This is an oldie but a goodie ...Ask a good friend to come over and tell you the awful truth. Ask that person for an honest assessment of how the house smells. Believe it or not, you may not smell odors that you live with every day. It just happens that way. Ask someone to not be shy and to, again, tell the truth! If your home does have odors, (and by the way, most do) a good carpet shampooing and fresh paint will do the trick a good deal of the time. Removal and/or replacement of carpet might be what it takes in severe cases. If you're a smoker, take it out-

side until the house is sold and then wash every stitch of clothing in the house and the draperies as well. Smell is a biggie not to be disregarded. Here's one that sounds obvious but must still be stressed as ever so important. Make the house not just clean, but Sparkling Clean! A lot of faults in a home can be forgiven, if at least the first impression is, that it's clean. Again, you might want your best friend to lay the truth out for you on this one because when you live with something everyday, some things just become invisible and you may simply not be seeing something that can turn a buyer off. You're going to hate me for this one, but keep the pets at least out of sight for any showings. You don't want a potential buyer distracted or, worse, scared by your pets. The smell and/or allergy factor may come into play with pets too, and you don't want that to happen. Don't forget what is perhaps the most important step, which is to obtain a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) from a local Real Estate professional who knows the neighborhood. Over or under pricing your home can cost you time and/or money that you don't want to lose. Don't just get one at the beginning, ask your agent to "run comps" periodically over time in order for you to determine if price adjustments are necessary. Unfortunately, as I've always said, if the property isn't selling, it's the price, more times than not, that needs to come down. Ouch. However, if you get that price right in the first place, you'll not be chasing it down-hill, for months to a point that ends up being way lower than it could have been initially. Don't let the sign on your property be just another drop in an ocean of listings. Keep in mind the points above and give your property a fighting chance to compete!
