Frontier Days Lawnmower Races By Wendy Korn, News Correspondent Meet The Inter Mountain Racing Team, headed by Rick Surrey. The team cleaned out last year’s race, using 7 mowers, winning all 3 top places. Their squad of mowers consists of a wheelie popping Police Mower, complete with a siren and flashy lights; an IMS Dragster that clocks a whopping 58mph; and for the ladies- the Tough Enough to Wear Pink mower, decorated with Best of Show 2008. Rick Surry writes “The Dragster is actually an original mower frame around 40 years old that we modified with the steel truss tube and steel wall stud materials we use in our product fabrication, so it’s really a rolling showcase for us. The Police Mower is actually the official ‘Honorary Police Vehicle’ of La Pine, adopted (Continued on page 22)

Midstate’s Message at Annual Meeting Boasts Low Cost Energy Photos and Article By Wendy Korn, Newberry Eagle Reporter

Lee Smith, Board President of Midstate Electric Co-op (MEC), addressed its members about the changing political climate in renewable energy at their 58th Annual Meeting in May. His message was clear – electricity is renewable and affordable, and the Co-op would like this fact to remain unchanged with the government. The General Manager of Midstate, Bill Kopacz, explained the differences between various renewable energies during his presentation. Electricity is the lowest cost energy priced at $0.067 per kWh after last year’s rate increase to members of MEC, whereas Geothermal is the highest at $0.082 per kWh (kilowatt hour). Kopacz also listed their year’s worth of accomplishments and community outreach programs, which include contributing to the Huntington Lights project and Relay for Life. Smith stated that being able to afford electricity is the key to the Co-op’s success and encouraged the members to help get the message to congress. “We need our members to show your support for keeping electricity affordable. Fifteen thousand voters will make a far greater impact than nine directors can make...I invite you to contact your elected officials and let them know you support this message... By making your voices heard, you will help assure an affordable energy future.” The meeting was not all business, as they fed hundreds of people beforehand, provided the public with a health fair, then gave away prizes between speeches. Some of the prizes included: two children’s bikes, a chocolate fountain, LED lantern, electric kettle, $50 gift card to Wal-Mart, a Wii game, $100 off an electric bill, and the grandest of prizes- a 37” LCD Vizio television. u Photos: Top right, Crowd fills the La Pine Middle School Auditorium.

Spring in Central Oregon Means Deer in Town By Wendy Korn, Newberry Eagle Reporter

If you have been seeing the darling deer in the early evening, you have been enjoying a real treat. It can be fun to take pictures and gaze from inside the car at these creatures. You will most likely see them in woody and grassy areas and a couple of hours before and after dawn. Steven George, Deschutes District Wildlife biologist said that right now deer are migrating through Central Oregon Mother and baby deer getting a drink from a local backyard pond. and if you drive slowly, you benefit two fold: longer reaction time to avoid hitting them, and more viewing time as you pass the deer. Steven says if you hit a deer with a vehicle, make sure to move your vehicle off to the side of the road. He said that Oregon state law allows people to euthanize a deer if they have the means to do so. However, do not take a carcass home with you since it is illegal without the proper permit from ODFW. According to Oregon’s Driver Manual, “If you hit and injure an animal, stop and make an effort to check the extent of injury. Give reasonable attention to the animal.” Luckily, Oregon is not in the top 10 “deer danger states”, but we do have to be careful when encountering deer and elk – whether it’s on the road or in your yard. Here are some tips about deer in rural areas: •S  werving your car to avoid an animal on the road is considered dangerous because of the potential loss of control. Simply brake and stay in your lane. Our roads in La Pine are not the widest and don’t have much room to zigzag around animals. •H  ere’s a neat trick: If, after you brake on the road for a deer (or dog), and they are “caught in your headlights”, honk your car’s horn in short bursts. This startles them out of the trance and gets them moving again. •D  eer travel in packs. If you see one, there are likely more near it. •U  se those wonderful “deer lights” at night to see them on the edges of the road. If you don’t have them, use high beams at night. • I f the worst happens: if you hit the deer with your car, you have options. You can move it to the side of the road when there is no traffic. This may include ending its life if it is suffering and you are capable of doing this. You can also call 911 if it a major road hazard. Or, you could leave it be. Use your best judgment in times like these. •D  on’t feed the deer. As much as you would like to see them come into your yard, don’t place extra food for them. They will graze throughout La Pine on their own and continue on their way. If you do feed them, they could become permanent- disrupting nature’s migratory patterns. u


For many, Relay is the one time during the year we can join together and undergo healing from a cancer experience. Whether it has been as a cancer patient, survivor, caregiver, concerned friend, family member, community member, or someone we don’t know, the cancer journey takes an emotional and physical toll. Providing for a time of emotional healing, our opening ceremonies offer a celebration for survivorship and for the lives and memories of loved ones lost. Ensuring that all persons who have been touched by cancer – survivors, caregivers, those who have lost loved ones or friends, and all those who are witnesses to this occasion – experience healing and are emotionally charged to take action is very important to the overall success of this event. Your efforts will inspire people to remember their reasons to get involved with Relay for Life. Let’s all fight this deadly disease all year long. Meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the La Pine Fire Station at 6:00 p.m. If you have questions or want more information, please contact the following: Event Chairs Team Leader Luminaria Mission & Advocacy Survivors

“Building Materials for Building Community”

By Wendy Korn, Newberry Eagle Reporter

City Needs Help Now, And More Help Later The City Council received 24 applications for its job opening for Interim Part-Time City Manager that starts in July. They are looking for somebody that can immediately jump into the mix and execute without any special training. The League of Oregon Cities (LOC) have advised the council on a job description for the manager, as well as four potential candidates. “We don’t have time in an interim position to go back to school and train somebody”, said Roger Jordan of LOC at the meeting on May 13th. Their recommendations included people who have significant city manager experience so that work can start as soon as they walk in the door – or after Frontier Days is over – and then assist the city in finding a permanent manager. The LOC recommends that the search for a permanent manager could include some of the interim applicants and should start about three months following the interim’s hire-on date. Their has not been a final decision yet on the length of the Interim Manager’s stay. League of Cities Recommendations: • Harold Anderson – Former Bend City Manager (04-07), and Medford City Manager (87-97) • Dayle Shaddox – experience as interim manager for Newport, OR and Phoenix, OR • Rick Allen – experience as Jefferson County Commissioner • Ross Schultz – experience as interim manager for City of Independence u

Changes on the Way from The Lion’s Club By Lion, Shirley Gerhart Changes are on the way for La Pine’s Community Park. The La Pine Lions Club is partnering with La Pine Parks and Recreation Department with the goal of making La Pine’s Community Park a place where the community can utilize a great park and park building. On a recent week day you could see lots of Lions outside in the park cutting up fallen trees, burning the debris and clearing scrap metal and other items that had been left around the building. Inside, Lions were cleaning out the kitchen cupboards, wiping down walls and cleaning the bathrooms. This is just the beginning for the park’s clean up. If you would like to be involved in making this once great facility shine again for your community we will be having other workdays in the future. Please contact Don Dickover, the President of the La Pine Lions Club, at 541-536-6096. u

The Deschutes Public Library Presents

When: Thursday, June 10th, 11:00am Where: The La Pine Public Library

In June the Art Envy series will look at the French Impressionist artist Claude Monet. Participants in this monthly workshop will enjoy a 20-minute presentation on the life and work of Monet, and then get creative in a 45-minute painting workshop taught by local artist Paula Bullwinkel. The workshop will take place at the La Pine Public Library at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 10th. No pre-registration is necessary for this workshop. Supplies are provided and this program is free and open to the public. Claude Monet, who was born in 1840 and died in 1926, was the founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to landscape painting. The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting “Impressions, Sunrise”, which he painted in 1872. In 1883, Money and his family moved to a

house in the town of Giverny and began work on his “series” paintings, in which a subject was depicted in varying light and weather conditions. This included his famous “Haystacks” and “Water Lillies” paintings. After his death in 1926, his son bequeathed the home and famous gardens in Giverny to the French Academy of Fine Arts, and they were eventually opened to the public for visit in 1980 Local Bend artist Paula Bullwinkel has a master’s degree in art education with a minor in painting. She has participated in numerous one-woman and group shows in New York City and the East Coast area. For 18 years, she was a professional fashion and portrait photographer for Magazines in NYC and London. Paula believes artmaking is best approached with a willingness to take risks, and a keen attitude towards the enjoyment of invention. For more information about this or other library programs, please call 312-1034 or visit the library at Those wishing to attend events that have special needs resulting from a disability should contact Lisa McGean at 312-1034 at least three days prior to the event. u

Message from the News Correspondent

Left: Jim helps Don Dickover, La Pine Lions Club president putt. Below: a team member swings while geese enjoy the golf too.

Perky Patty Paulson and Young Pal Polly Hit the Links Perky Patty Paulson, La Pine’s perfect party person and I, Polly Patterson recently experienced the wonders of the Quail Run Golf Course, which is located just north of La Pine in the Lazy River South area! Dressed up in our “golfiest of gear” the two of us met up with the Lion’s Club for their annual fund raising event “Scramble for Sight”. I was “Polly” and my friend was “Perky Patty”, a fictitious character with Norwegian heritage who raises Pomeranians and Pugs here in La Pine. (Maybe you know her? She’s Teri Myers, the Newberry Eagle Columnist (see page 12 or 26). We followed teams of four around the immaculate 18 hole course surrounded by nature. We sold raffle tickets to unsuspecting foursomes, raising money for the Lions Club. The Lions Club uses the money to give sight and hearing exams to low income folks who need glasses and hearing aids. There were many raffle prizes donated and the raffle proceeds topped the $360 mark––all because we used our perky characters’ wit and charms! Thanks to all who participated in the event by buying raffle tickets for a good cause. A “scramble” golf tournament is a cool concept: 4 players tee off, then they pick the best ball and start from there for the next shot. If I ever play golf, that’s how I will play since I will be dependent on somebody else’s skills. I’m not a golf gal, but I did enjoy riding around in a golf cart with my pal, Patty, on one of La Pine’s better spring days. My game is tennis and biking. (For a great article on biking, check out Ollie Scheideman’s article on page 30). I would love to ride 30 miles during the La Pine Rocks Bike and Walk event coming up in June (see page 30), but I have a feeling that I’m going to be at ‘base camp’ hanging out and running the “Rock” event. If you haven’t registered for this event, do it now! I hope to see you there! In the meantime, congratulations to the La Pine Lions. u

Let’s Dance!

New Jazz Lounge in La Pine Great Music! Great People! The new Jazz Lounge in La Pine is jumpin’! The live bands are grouped with experienced and talented musicians. Owner Sheila O’Malley really picks the best for her audiences. “Stronghold” was the band that played Saturday night, May 14th. I was blown away by the extraordinary music we heard on the keyboard, drums, and guitar. The singing was excellent. As we all sat around and listened, the dance floor was bare, as if it was beckoning us all to dance. Sheila danced by herself a couple of times, then I had to jump in and bust a move. During the evening, a couple got up to cut a rug with some swing steps. By the end of the night there were a total of six that busted moves on the dance floor. The other two dancers were Adele McAfee, La Pine City Councilor, and the lounge waiter. It was good for the spirits to have so much fun. It was especially good to have jazz music in our own city of La Pine, right in Aspen Alley! Guests drank non-alcoholic drinks, and ate pizza, taquitos, pretzels, and more. A cool bar tender danced behind the bar with his baseball cap turned sideways, as he poured my virgin Mai Tai. The evening was broadcasted live on La Pine’s local KITC 106.5 FM. Pat Rice was in the audience and took the radio mike during intermission. Her peppy energetic radio voice kept the mood going strong, as she introduce people in the small crowd, and talked it up about the new lounge. Try Jade’s Jazz Lounge! You have got to give yourself a treat. Go out at least one night and listen to a live band at the town’s new Jazz Lounge! A night out with some great music and fun people is good for the soul. u

STOP Convictions could result in fines up to $1,000 and not less than 30 days of imprisonment.

You may have seen this sticker in grocery and liquor stores in La Pine and Sunriver during the month of May. It is TAPS Sticker Shock project geared to deter adults from buying alcohol for minors. Take a look at the RAP sheet on page 20. “Person age 21 was cited for allowing a minor to consume alcohol.” Sticker Art donated by Sandra Jones, Eagle Lady Multimedia.

DeBone Wins

campaign manager, is carefully planning their schedule for the rest of the year so everyone can spend time with DeBone before the general election. Some of the Varcoe’s plans include assigning campaign captains in different parts the county, like Sisters and Redmond, to assist with scheduling and canvassing. The best news is the primaries are over and Democrats will be able to vote for DeBone in the general election. Varcoe said they are encouraging Democrats to vote for him by printing bumper stickers that say “Democrats for DeBone”. u Photo by Mike Jensen

Messages From Think Again Parents (TAPS) TAPS Sticker Shock Project The TAPS Team would like to thank the South County retail businesses and restaurants for their overwhelming support and involvement in our Sticker Shock Project on April 24th, 2010. The Sticker Shock Project is an opportunity for businesses to work with the local substance abuse prevention team to draw attention to the legal consequences of adults providing alcohol to minors. This was done with STOP stickers and posters placed on cases of beer, refrigeration units, and other locations where alcohol can be purchased. It was quite affirming that so many of you were willing to stand up and promote this event. When our community works together like this, we will empower our youth to be drug and alcohol free. With recent youth surveys telling us that youth primarily obtain their alcohol from non-retail sources, it is imperative that we join together

to limit minor’s access to alcohol through social sources. It is good to know you support TAPS efforts in reducing underage drinking. There are many ways to limit minors access to alcohol. Share our vision: Alcohol and drug-free minors in a positive, healthy community! We look forward to continuing to work with our local retailers, as well as other business partners on future substance abuse prevention efforts. We would also like to say thank you to the 100 plus adult and youth volunteers who went to all the businesses to place the posters and stickers. Besides TAPS Team members, volunteer sponsor organizations included the Students Improving School Atmosphere (SISA) from LPHS, adults from SCOOTR, and the coaches, parents and players from La Pine Little League. Good work by everyone! You ALL can make a difference.

Ghost Rock Ranch Rescue Horse - “Vinny”

losing our beloved Honey last year. Vinny comes from the Klamath Basin area and was used in herding cattle. Even now, whenever he sees cows he gets excited and works up a sweat just wanting to work them. He is a calm and responsive trail horse as well as an excellent pleasure riding candidate. These exceptional qualities make him a great horse for trainer Cindy Cronin to use as a lesson horse for beginners or intermediate riders. After discovering cuts on his front legs, it was discovered that Vinny has narcolepsy; he

was falling asleep, falling down, and injuring himself. He was moved to a larger pasture with the other geldings and has had no problems with the narcolepsy since then. Vinny is a sweet horse who loves food and attention and everyone who meets him is drawn to this wonderful horse. u Special Announcement: Ghost Rock Ranch Equestrian Operations will be moving.

Keeping Auto Insurance Premiums Down for Teens Submitted by Andy Meeuwsen, Country Financial

The most often asked questions of insurance agents from young drivers and their parents are: “Why are the rates for teen drivers higher?” and “How can I pay less for insurance?” The answer to the first question is because teens generally have more frequent and more expensive auto insurance claims than any other age group. According to the Insurance Information Institute, adding a child to your policy can cause your auto insurance to go up anywhere from 50 percent to 100 percent. To make it fair for everyone, insurance companies charge higher rates to groups, which on average have more claims, and lower rates to people who generally have fewer claims. The answer to the second question is, “many ways!” The easiest way for a young driver to lower the cost of insurance is to develop a good driving record and be responsible by following traffic laws, avoiding traffic cita-

tions and driving defensively. A record of citations and accidents will lead to higher insurance premiums or result in a teen being assigned to a company that insures only substandard drivers. Some insurance companies offer good student discounts. This discount is offered because studies have proven that students with a B or higher grade average are more responsible when they drive, which means they have fewer claims. Parents, too, can help their teens keep insurance premiums lower by setting a good example. If parents obey driving laws, wear seat belts, avoid or minimize talking on cell phones and observe speed limits, teens will do the same. The more time a parent spends with a teen behind the wheel, the better driver the teen will be. When driving with a teen, parents should be firm and fair in criticizing bad actions, but also commend a good job. Most of all, parents should have confidence in their teen’s driving and keep “cool” no matter what. In addition, evaluating insurance needs can lower costs. Determine if there is a need to carry comprehensive and collision insurance, especially on older cars; consider a higher deductible; and keep adequate automobile liability insurance. Talk to a COUNTRY financial representative about an insurance review if you need help determining the right coverages or more resources for teen drivers.

Answering Five Questions Can Help You Pursue Your Goals As you strive to achieve your longterm goals, such as a comfortable retirement, you may, at times, feel frustrated over events you can’t influence, such as the up-and-down movements of the financial markets. Yet there is much you can control — once you determine the answers to just five key questions. Where am I today? Take stock of all your assets — your IRA, 401(k) and other savings and investment accounts. Then, do the same for your debts, such as your mortgage and any other financial obligations. On your financial journey through life, it’s essential that you know your starting point. Where would I like to be? Once you’ve established where you are today, you’ll need to identify where you’d like to be tomorrow. How much will you need to pay for the retirement lifestyle you’ve envisioned? Will you be able to help pay for your children’s or grandchildren’s college education? Will you need to support any other family members? At this stage, you’ll want to write down all your goals and put a price tag on each one.

Can I get there? After you’ve identified your goals, determine if they are, in fact, achievable. By considering a variety of factors — including your likely future income stream and your family situation — you should be able to determine if you can attain your goals or if you need to modify them in some way. How do I get there? Now it’s time to put a strategy into action. Specifically, you need to choose those investments that can help you pursue the goals you’ve selected. Your ideal portfolio will depend on your risk tolerance and time horizon, but in general, you’ll want a diversified mix of quality investments. While diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility. As you put together your holdings, make sure you understand what you can expect from your investments. For example, growth stocks may offer the highest potential returns, but they also carry the greatest risk. On the other hand, investment-grade bonds can offer a steady income stream and, barring the default of the issuer, will repay your



principal when they mature. How can I stay on track? Once you’ve built your investment portfolio, you’ll need to review it regularly — at least once a year — to help ensure it’s still meeting your needs. After all, many things can and will change in your life, such as your family situation, your goals, your employment and your risk tolerance. To address these changes, you’ll need to adjust your portfolio over time. As you can see, answering all these questions will take both work and expertise. That’s why you may want to work with a professional financial advisor to help you identify your goals and create a strategy for pursuing them. In any case, though, start asking — and answering — these five key questions as soon as you can. It’s easier to reach your financial goals if you put time on your side. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones financial advisor. See Bob Cox’ ad on this page. u

What Does Economic Development Mean for La Pine? By Dan Varcoe, La Pine Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director This was the subject of a forum of La Pine Stakeholders that was convened by RCAC (Rural Community Assistance Corporation) on May 7 in La Pine. The goal was to identify economic development priorities for business, industry and community and help increase economic opportunities for La Pine. The group listed and discussed the various Strengths, Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) that may affect our area. What Priorities were established? It was established that job opportunities are critical. One of the common priorities that was identified was that La Pine needs to work on the developing a sustainable industry base, with a focus on renewable energy production or energy conservation in development. And…beautification of our downtown and Hwy 97 areas. We need to agree upon a theme or image that is inviting to prospective newcomers, especially those who may be considering locating their businesses and employees in the area. Where do we go from here? The folks from RCAC suggested that the various stakeholder groups in the area take part in our efforts. It was suggested that EDCO (Economic Development of Central Oregon) may serve to facilitate the structure of such a partnership and preliminarily, EDCO Director, Roger Lee has indicated that EDCO would be willing to help in anyway. Soon after we get RCAC summary reports from the Stakeholders meeting, we will proceed and create an action plan.u

Happy Memories or Household Hazards? By Home Instead Senior Care Local Senior Care Company Advises Family Caregivers to Help Older Adults De-Clutter During Spring Cleaning to Avoid Home Dangers While clutter is not a problem unique to seniors, conditions of aging including strokes, brain trauma and dementia can lead to disorder and chaos that could threaten seniors’ home safety and independence, experts say. It’s a problem all too familiar to family caregivers. “A lifetime accumulation of possessions combined with an influx of daily junk mail, bills, newspapers and magazines can quickly overwhelm seniors who are struggling physically,mentally or emotionally,” said Todd Sensenbach, owner of the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise office serving Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson Counties. Experts say even seniors who simply don’t know how to part with their possessions are vulnerable. The risks are many from slipping on loose papers to the threat of fire to the health effects of mold and mildew. Clutter can also interfere with family relationships and leave adultchildren wondering if the only inheritance awaiting them is a big mess. “Spring is a great time for family caregivers to help seniors de-clutter for their own health and well-being,” Sensenbach said. “Cluttering – for those with this tendency – probably has been happening for years, but a ‘trigger episode’ such as going into a wheelchair or a health issue could worsen the problem,” said Katherine “Kit” Anderson, CPO-CD, president of the non-profit National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization (NSGCD) and a certified professional organizer. While the source of clutter can be anything from outdated medications to a kitchen full of unused pots and pans, paper is the biggest clutter culprit, Anderson said. “It’s sort of the elephant in the room,” added Dr. Catherine Ros- If you notice these characteristics about your ter, a University of New Mexico senior loved ones or their homes, clutter could clutter researcher. “People don’t start creeping up on them. want to acknowledge there is a 1.

Sometimes seniors just need a little help.” u

10 Reasons Seniors Hang On To Stuff and What To Do About It The following, from Home Instead Senior Care and Vickie Dellaquila, certified professional organizer and author of “Don’t Toss My Memories in the Trash,” are 10 reasons seniors can’t or won’t give up their stuff and what to do about it. 1. The sentimental attachment. The beloved prom dress represents the history and memories of the event; it’s not the dress itself. Save only a piece of the dress to make a quilt or display in a shadow box. Scrapbooking and converting photos to DVDs are other ways to save treasured keepsakes without all the extra mess. 2. The sense of loyalty. Older adults who’ve received gifts from family and friends may be reluctant to part with them. Encourage your loved one to give unused gifts back to the giver or grandchildren. 3. The need to conserve. Seniors are the original green people. Appeal to a senior’s desire to help others. Counter a senior’s inclination to conserve by appealing to their desire to give back. 4. The fatigue. A home with a lifetime of memories can easily become too much for an older adult to handle. Help seniors manage clutter by establishing online bill paying. Also, get your senior off junk mail lists, which can put them at risk of identity theft, and buy them a shredder. 5. The change in health. Seniors who have suffered a brain trauma or stroke, who are wheelchair bound or who are experiencing dementia may no longer be able to manage household duties, which could contribute to clutter. If you see a health change, encourage your senior to visit his or her doctor and consider a professional organizer and caregiver to help your loved one. 6. The fear. Seniors often fear what will happen if they give up their stuff, like the older adult who saved three generations of bank statements. Use logic and information to help seniors understand it’s O.K. to let go. 7. The dream of the future. Those clothes in the closet don’t fit anymore, but your loved one is sure that some day she’ll lose enough weight to get into them. Ask seniors to fill a box with clothing they don’t wear much and make a list of the items in the box. Agree that if they have not gone back to the box in six months to wear the item, they will donate that to charity. 8. The love of shopping. Today’s seniors have more money than any other previous generation of older adults and they love to shop. Clutter can become so bad seniors can’t find things and they repurchase items they already have, contributing to the clutter cycle. Try to convince seniors to cut back and to say “no” to free stuff. 9. The history and memories. Keepsakes represent history and memories. Encourage seniors to take old photos to a family reunion and share with several generations. Let seniors know they can contribute to the history of their time and leave a lasting legacy by donating to museums and historical societies, a theater and library, or churches and synagogues. 10. The loneliness. Stuff can become a misplaced companion. Loneliness may also lead to depression, which makes it difficult for seniors to get organized. Consider the services of a professional organizer and caregiver. For more information, go to the National Association of Professional Organizers at www.napo. net or visit Other experts contributing to these tips include Katherine “Kit” Anderson, CPOCD, president of the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization; University of Kansas Professor Dr. David Ekerdt, who is coordinating a “household moves” project to determine the role that possessions play in older people’s housing decisions; and University of New Mexico Researcher Dr. Catherine Roster. u

Green Energy – Heat Pumps, A Great Investment By Bend Heating

Recently, Randall Marchington, an expert mechanical estimator from Bend Heating answered questions about the newest high efficiency heat pump systems on the market. He also discussed how people can save money and benefit from the best incentives ever offered for installing high efficiency equipment for heating and cooling your home. Q: Randall, what are the average fuel costs for the La Pine and Sunriver area? A: We measure the cost of heating in the amount of Btuh output (British Thermal Units per hour). For example Propane costs $28 - $34 per Btuh, heating oil costs $28 - $32 per Btuh, and an electric furnace costs $20 per Btuh. What many people don’t know is that a high efficiency heat pump is the most cost effective source for heating a home at only $8 - $9 per Btuh. As an added bonus a heat pump also cools so you get air conditioning basically at no additional cost. Q: If I’m heating with Propane, how much of a savings can I get by converting to a high efficiency heat pump? A: Using that example you are paying approx. $32 per Btuh with propane as compared to $9 per Btuh with a high efficiency heat pump. That would be roughly a 72% savings. Q: Can you give me an example of what it would cost to invest in a new high efficiency heat pump system? A: Let’s use an example of a system based on a smaller stick or manufactured home costing an estimated $7,830.00. With Federal, State and utility energy incentives and rebates you can save $4,540 for a net investment of $3,290.00. There have never been incentives like this in the 25 years I’ve been in this business.

Q: What sets Bend Heating apart from other well known heating companies? A: Bend Heating has served Central Oregon and the La Pine and Sunriver communities since 1953. That’s longer than anyone in our business. We are required to be certified by federal, state and local agencies. We participate in rigorous ongoing training that requires us to perform many different tests to certify the installation is correct like duct testing and sealing – as much as 25% of heat can be lost to leaky ducts. We also perform air flow measurements. Air flow needs to be balanced to avoid burning up the equipment. But there are many other factors that need to be considered to get it right. Q: How can people contact you for more information? A: You can contact me at 382-1231 or email me at and I’m happy to provide a no obligation estimate of costs and savings.

We started small with only three hens and a rooster. The rooster got too mean to live with, so he didn’t last long. But, we still have our original three chickens and have added a dozen more over the last four years. After we adopted an older gentle rooster, our flock became perfect for us.

Recreation Sites on the Crescent Ranger District Will Require a Pass Written by Les Moscoso, Recreation Operations Supervisor, Deschutes National Forest

In an effort to improve service and facilities at recreation sites, the Deschutes National Forest will require a pass for use at the following recreation fee sites in the Crescent Ranger District:

Simax Beach Day Use Area Tranquil Cove Day Use Area Crescent Lake Boat Launch Princess Creek Boat Launch Spring Creek Boat Launch Sunset Cove Boat Launch Trapper Creek Boat Launch The pass requirement is the same already in use on the rest of the Deschutes and other Pacific Northwest forests; it is not a new pass requirement. The Northwest Forest Pass can be purchased as either a day pass for $5.00 or an annual pass for $30.00. Every year the Forest Service collects recreation fees for a variety of facilities and services. These revenues are retained locally by each national forest to operate and maintain campgrounds, trailheads, boat launches, visitor centers and more. Besides routine operation and maintenance, the Deschutes plans to chip away at major projects to reduce back log maintenance. Some of the changes that the public can expect to see will include: new toilets where needed, interpretive signs so visitors can learn more about the natural resources of the area, new picnic tables, more staff presence at these sites to assist visitors and garbage service. Other passes that the public can use in lieu of the Northwest Forest pass include the Interagency Annual Pass, Interagency Senior Pass and the Interagency Access Pass all of which are honored nationwide at all Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and US Fish & Wildlife Service sites that require a pass for use. Recreation Fees are not new to the Forest Service. Since the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act was passed in 1964, the Forest Service has had the authority to charge recreation fees for activities such as camping in developed campgrounds. Through the Granger-Thye authority, the Forest Service has provided the public with opportunities to rent administrative sites such as cabins or lookouts for a fee. For more information about the passes and requirements, contact Les Moscoso at 541-383-4712.

Free Fishing Event Cancelled Due to Quarry Water Levels Submitted by Fremont Winema National Forest Service

Klamath County, Oregon - The Fremont-Winema National Forests and their long time partners “Fishin’ Friends” will be unable to host the Fourmile Quarry Ponds Free Fishing Weekend this June due to the lack of water in the quarry ponds. The Klamath Ranger District has been monitoring the ponds all spring and has reluctantly concluded that groundwater levels will be too low this year to provide fishing opportunities. However, if you are planning to participate in Oregon’s Free Fishing Weekend (June 12-13, 2010) please consider fishing activities planned by the Lake of the Woods Resort in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. Also assisting will be the Fremont-Winema National Forests, who is a recreational partner to the Lake of the Woods Resort. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, the Resort and volunteers from the Boy Scouts of America will provide young children the opportunity to fish in either a 1000 gallon fish tank (12 and under) or a larger net pen hung from the floating boat docks (ages 13 to 17). Both areas will be fully stocked with trophy and legal size rainbow trout for your fishing pleasure. The Resort will provide materials for making your own souvenir (continued on page 16)

Crescent Gilchrist Community Action Team News CGCATeam Update Provided By Judy Scally, CATeam Member Fire Resistant The Crescent Gilchrist Community Action Team meetings are open to the public. Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month at 8:00am in the Ernst Bros. Landscaping Office in Gilchrist.

Gilchrist Forest Update

Special Guests from the Oregon Department of Forestry, Mike Cafferata, Doug Decker and John Pellissier, gave the CATeam an update on the new Gilchrist State Forest. This 43,000 acres of former Gilchrist Timber Company land is located just east of the town of Crescent and is the first time in 70 years that Oregon has created a new state forest. The CATeam asked questions regarding public access, future use such as camping, hunting, cross-country skiing, hiking, personal use woodcutting, etc. These are all things that are expected to be allowed and encouraged. The department is mandated to protect and maintain water, wildlife, soil and air quality/safety. Timber harvesting will be the main form of revenue for maintaining the forest. The public should not expect to find developed camp sites or that sort of thing. ODF wants to work with the local community and decided that the CATeam will serve as an “advisory committee” so they can be advised of issues, concerns and desires that local citizens may have. They will be designing a brochure and will put a little advertising on the Internet. They plan to work with user groups such as local snowmobile clubs, ATV groups, etc. to help with trail grooming and maintenance. u

KITC Starts New Show

The local radio station, KITCfm 106.5, reported there are new “clickable” links on the website, for news from Reuters as well as local news. There will soon be a link added to the Crescent Rural Fire Protection Dist. There is going to be a new show starting in June. It’s called Bill and Gil in the Morning and will air at 10am on Thursdays. They will be interviewing local people and sharing all sorts of information about what’s going on in north Klamath County’s community. The station has now been on the air for almost nine years but revenue is down this year. They are hoping sponsorships will increase as summer approaches. u

Photo and Article By Echo Murray

Oregon has many wildfire prone areas. In these places, fires are a natural part of the changing landscape. As homes are built special precautions need to be taken by the homeowner to protect their property. When landscaping around a home, most homeowners are interested in creating a landscape that is aesthetically pleasing, compliments their home, and has variations in color, texture, flowers and foliage. If your home is located in or adjacent to forests or rangeland, you should also consider the flammability of plants within your home landscape. Fire resistant does not mean fire proof. Most deciduous trees and shrubs are fireresistant. However, it’s important to remember that even fire resistant plants can burn, particularly if they are not maintained in a healthy condition. If you landscape with bark mulch up against your home, make sure it remains moist to prevent ignition. You can do much in a weekend to reduce your fire danger. Implementation of hazardous fuel reduction activities can significantly improve the chances of a home surviving a wildfire. u

Emergency Services Under Fire in Crescent

By Crescent Rural Fire Protection District Do you know where your tax dollars go? Not far enough for the majority of us! In fact most, if not all, of us feel we pay far too many taxes. Unfortunately our system for funding essential services is based on a taxing system and until there becomes a better system we are stuck with taxes. That said, I want to speak specifically to your emergency fire and ambulance services in Crescent, Gilchrist and surrounding areas. If you own property with a home within the boundaries of Crescent RFPD you pay taxes annually based on the value of your home and buildings assessed by Klamath County for Fire Service ONLY. Why do I point this out? Because we in emergency services try to serve you, the patron, in every way possible when you have an emergency and need help. That is exactly why we do what we do. We train hard and spend hours learning how to provide you assistance when you need it. And for many years we have been able to succeed with few exceptions. But by doing so we created a reality that when you call 911 you are going to get the help you need, fire or not. What’s the Point? There has been a fundamental shift over the past 20 years from the majority of emergencies being fire related to the majority now being medically related. We still need to be prepared for fires because when they occur they are devastating, so fire responses are still our priority. However, the majority of our emergency responses are now medical in nature, and through the transition, Crescent RFPD has tried to provide those critical services as well. The point being, you still only pay for fire protection. Crescent Fire, as well as the rest of the Fire Departments across the State and Nation, are facing critical budget deficits due to the cost of providing Emergency Medical Services without dedicated funding. Over the past eight years Crescent RFPD has been supplementing ambulance service with fire tax dollars. With the economic crisis, Crescent has lost four career positions. Rest assured, we still respond to your medical needs because we have dedicated volunteers, but the level of service may or may not be advanced life support. We are no longer able to guarantee a Paramedic ambulance response because we simply do not have the financial support to do so. So Now What? Crescent Fire is going to continue to respond by ambulance as long as we possibly can. We are continually looking at ways to provide Emergency Medical Services within our means, but with the costs of EMS and volunteer availability you need to know there is no guarantee. We have to find funding to support EMS. We have been able to provide an essential service within our limited fire budget, however we have a duty to our Fire District taxpayers to maintain fire as a priority. The decision I see you making in the future is “What level of ambulance service do you want?” We will be scheduling Town Hall meetings in your community in the near future to discuss the future of Emergency Medical Services at Crescent RFPD. You tell us. Please, if you have questions or suggestions, call me at Crescent RFPD 541 4332466. Thank you. - Chief Kirchner u

Nicky Biehn: “Nature as a Canvas” Nicky Biehn is Chiloquin Two Rivers Art Gallery June Artist of the Month

Her Style:

Painting nature and wildlife with acrylics on nature’s canvas -rock slabs and canvas. Biography: I grew up and have lived my life in various places in Washington, Oregon, and California settling in Klamath Falls in 1995. I am a self-taught artist. Much of my inspiration comes from my childhood where I lived on 120 acres with a pond and a lake, and so watched wildlife and nature everyday. I attempt to paint as realistic as possible, considering regional and season changes to reflect real life. My goal, like most every artist is to improve my techniques and be a better painter. I enjoy all aspects of life and my goal is to portray that in my art.

Researched and Written by Teri Myers, Photos Courtesy of Marilyn Russell With the La Pine Parks and Recreation District’s decision to rename the White School Building the La Pine Event Center (LPEC) at the May 3rd board meeting, the village of La Pine is buzzing about White School History and what the school has meant to the community. Even the LPRD board has discussed initial ideas about a designated historical plaque and learning center to be part of the new remodel project so we do not forget what the White School has meant to La Pine! In the Friend’s of the Library’s History of La Pine Pioneers, they describe the historic schools. “There was a classroom in the Sly woodshed, and another in a Masten house parlor and there were one room schools in Rosland, Masten, Howard, Rose, Long Prairie and Harper…. The Harper School is still standing on the Vandevert Ranch off Huntington Road…. The Rosland School was moved to La Pine in 1912, because we had more students. Finally, A new building was built in 1914 and ’the big new school was very grand.’” The La Pine School became a promotional tool for attracting people to move to La Pine. It was featured in the sales pamphlets for real estate The White School Building makes history once again! The brokers. Two years later the La Pine Inter-Mountain newspaper featured a front-page article about the first day of school and how La Pine had every vision of the newly funded La Pine Park and Recreation District grade represented except the sophomores in grade ten. Big News! The La is about to become the future “La Pine Events Center”. Pine School burned down in 1922 and was rebuilt and burned down again in 1927. Students took their classes in Redman Hall during the interim until the new school was completed in 1928. Within 4 years an educator of note named John C. Johnson moved from Prineville and dedicated his expertise and educational background to community service to improve every aspect of education in La Pine. (The Old Library on First Street is named Written by Teri Myers after him.) Johnson worked 18 years with the combined grades in the White School Building with the bell on top.

The Russell Family at White School Written by Teri Myers La Pine pioneer and community activist, Marilyn Russell, married Marvin Russell in 1951 and moved from the metropolis of Bend, population 5,000, to the small village of La Pine. Marilyn told the Newberry Eagle that her five kids went to the White School. Marilyn’s four sons, Victor, Stan, Neal and Kim and her daughter Sharon attended school in La Pine until their High School years. They were then bussed into Bend High. Her youngest son, Kim, was the last of her children to attend and graduate from Bend High. At that time in 1981, they had finished the La Pine High School, which had a local 9-12 program in three newer schools. u

Summer has an abundance of interesting, fun author events. Attending is interesting and entertaining, it makes reading more fun. June 5th at 5:00 PM, R. Gregory Nokes gives a presentation on Massacred for Gold. The Northwest is the site of the worst massacre of Chinese immigrants in US history. In Hell’s Canyon by a bend in the Snake River up to 34 Chinese miners were murdered. Worse yet, some of the killers were mere school boys, teenagers lured toward easy money and a quick kill by a nefarious horse thieving rancher. The miners could have been robbed without taking their lives, but they were hated for being Chinese. The massacred men had been working for about a year, amassing gold. They were sitting ducks for their killers. Sheer cliff walls and fast flowing water gave them nowhere to run. Greg Nokes documents this shameful episode. He worked as a reporter for the Associated Press and The Oregonian, retiring after 43 years to write this story. He has a fascinating slide show and presentation. Sujatha Hampton will be with us at 5:00 PM on June 12th for a presentation on As It Was Written, a lively work of fiction. Dr. Raman Nair is living the good life in Virginia with his five beautiful daughters and loving wife. His safe haven may be in jeopardy. Dr. Nair’s sister Gita is determined to write their family history.

Suffering from a star crossed love affair, she pours her passion into the project. Will retelling the family tale renew their curse? Will the curse that doomed one woman to die for love each generation in India now find his happy home in Virginia? Will he lose one of his beautiful daughters? I liked the characters and enjoyed the story, it is heartwarming and engaging. This will be an interesting event. Lisa Lutz is returning to Sunriver June 19th at 5:00 PM and we are thrilled!

Splendidly quirky, the Spellman clan charges through life with the vigor and finesse of a bull in a porcelain shop. Breakage is always a possibility.  The Spellmans Strike Again has Izzy wondering why her parent’s house is starting to shed its parts; door handles, light fixtures, all oddly disappearing.  Teenage Rae is coloring way outside the lines, busily blackmailing her family and getting into heaps of trouble.  Her heart is in the right place, she wants to help Maggie free a man wrongly convicted, but her methods have more in common with Al Capone than Mother Theresa.

A Novel Idea Brings Southern Culture to South County By Wendy Korn, News Correspondent There’s something about watching two women cook in a make-shift kitchen. The audience is perpetually on edge, wondering if something is going to ruin their chance to taste delicious food. What happens if the Sterno flame goes out? Will the food get cold? Did the chef remember to put everything in the cooler? On April 21st, Rose Makena and her assistant Kelly de Kramer, pulled off this small miracle in the La Pine library and seamlessly fed 25 people using a couple of pots, a wok, and camp-style Sterno heat. Everyone sampled the perfectly sweet Wilted Greens, Shrimp in a roux sauce with Grits, and a pre-made, yet sensational, Caramel Cake. While Rose cooked her greens, she explained to the audience how important it is to buy and eat local produce, especially with a recipe like Wilted Greens with Bacon and Currants. If possible, one should pick up organic locally grown beet tops, collards, and other mixed greens from a farmers’ market. Rose recommended Nature’s in Bend. The sugar and bacon in this recipe are considered optional, as they create a sweeter, smokier flavor for the greens, what Rose calls “beginner’s bacon”. Currants should be used instead of raisins - they add a perfect bite of sweetness. This type of southern cooking uses as much of an ingredient as possible without wasting any parts, specifically parts of a hog, with smoked pigs feet or hocks thrown into greens to add flavor. Southern cooking is also known because it includes cheap cuts of meat with techniques to make the cuts taste better. She made exquisite grits, which, if you have never tasted, are “like Cream of Wheat, but better”. Actually, grits are a type of corn-porridge similar to an Italian polenta. Rose topped them with a creamy shrimp dish many guests “ooh’ed and ahh’ed” over. To end it on a sweet note, the helpers passed around a rich caramel cake for dessert. There’s Something About Rose With only $700 in her pocket, Chef Rose Makena moved to Paris, France at age 21. She neither had a job nor learned the language. Rose graduated in 1997 from Western Culinary Institute-Les Cordon Bleu program in Portland. She worked as a pastry chef for 7 out of 14 years of her career in various restaurants in Europe, California, and Texas. Rose is currently attending the Master Gardening series at the OSU-Cascades Extension program. For the last three years, she has been conducting cooking programs and doing demonstrations with the Deschutes Library. A Novel Idea...Let’s Read Together During the past decade, there has been a phenomenon in the literary world in which people encourage everyone around (continued on page 26)

Rising Stars Pre-School Preschoolers Use Pedal Power to Raise Money By Wendy Korn, News Correspondent

Rising Stars students ages 2-4 spent their day at preschool riding their trikes and bikes around the playground for the Trike-A-Thon fundraiser in May. This annual activity prompted parents to bring their best camera and watch their young ones chug along around the race track. The goal was to ride around until they were exhausted, since each lap meant more help from a sponsor. Here are the stats: The parents AM Class: 17 kids rode a tracked the numtotal of 984 laps (47.71 miles) ber of laps their PM Class: 13 kids rode a child complettotal of 830 laps (40.25 miles) ed, while at the Both classes totaled 1814 same time enlaps (87.96 miles) joyed watching Total Sponsored the action. Some Pledges: $2044.75 kids were slow and steady, others blasted through as if it were a race to the finish. These kids put their heart into it and pedaled their way to helping their school. The preschool converted their playground into a track for the day, complete with hay bails, cones, race flags, and a pit stop. Money raised by the riders goes to improving the school’s infrastructure and also benefits their end of the year celebration event. u

Mom 2 Mom By Izabel Henry Mom 2 Mom is a column that addresses family issues in La Pine. It is written by a La Pine wife and mother of two. Send any comments or questions to: Okay, here’s the deal. We’ve all been preached to about how too much TV is bad for us. Some of us may have even cut back on our hours of watching TV. With all of the new studies available today how bad is TV really? Sure. We’ve all heard that too much television causes health risks. Obesity is at the top of the health risks mentioned, but there is recent research that claims ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, may also be caused from people not getting out in nature enough. According to Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, research shows that enjoying nature reduces stress, and may reduce the percentage of people who suffer from ADHD. One recommendation that he has is for parents to get involved and take their kids outdoors more often. Now if that doesn’t convince you to turn off the boob tube, maybe some good old fashioned statistics will. Ninety nine percent of American’s homes have a TV set. Over half of them have more than

three. The yearly viewing average is 250 billion hours for all Americans combined. According to over 4,000 studies, 70% of daycare’s use a TV set. There are 900 hours spent in school and 1,500 hours watching TV each year. The average child is given 3.5 minutes of meaningful conversation per day from a parental figure. Fifty four percent of kids that were given the choice would rather watch TV than spend time with a parent. The list goes on with statistics of violence, commercialism, media influence, etc., all relating to negative aspects of too much TV watching. If you would like to see these statistics and many more, check out You would be amazed at the information provided. My advice, if you choose to accept it, turn off the TV and be with your family before they’re grown and gone. Or we may continue to add to the statistics. u Let the numbers say it:

99% - American homes with a TV set 250,000,000,000 hours- number viewed by all Americans per year 1,500 hours - time spent in front of TV per year 3.5 minutes - amount of time parent converses with child daily 54% - percentage of kids that watch TV rather than spend time with parents.

What is Wellness? By Peggy Boone, The Health and Wellness Group

In checking my 1970 edition of Webster’s’ Dictionary, the word “wellness” is not listed. A term that has become part of mainstream conversation today did not even exist 30 years ago. Perhaps this explains why this relatively new term finds folks having difficulty grasping the concept of wellness. What exactly do we mean when we speak of wellness? We mean taking deliberate steps to ensure that we are well - physically, mentally and yes, even financially! Taking strides to be a part of the wellness model and not part of the medical model. In short, to make sure we are experiencing the state of optimal health. Over the past eight months I have focused my column on different aspects of wellness. I’ve shared tips and information about nutrition, weight loss, exercise and activity, the value of positive thinking, toxins in our environment, and the need to reduce mental, physical and chemical stress in our lives. Yes, wellness does encompass a broad spectrum, yet it is vitally important that we introduce these various aspects into your daily living. The result: less visits to the physician and a better quality of life! Recently I upped the ante on my own wellness model by incorporating regular massage into my other disciplines. There are several types of massage from relaxing to therapeutic to sports massage. I enjoy them all and each provides a different benefit to the body. My most favorite of all is one I only recently experienced as a birthday gift: A Thai Massage. This unique massage is unlike anything I’ve previously experienced and while there are some similarities to sports massage, it goes far beyond. The therapist uses her/his entire body to move and stretch every inch of you while you lie on a futon-type mattress on the floor. As an athlete, I found this type of massage to be totally beneficial to enhancing my flexibility and rooting out the deep-seeded injuries of past sporting activities. My therapist was Amy at Studio Sabai. She is amazingly strong and very in-tune with her client. Amy has intuitiveness and an artistry that perhaps comes from her studies in Thailand. Impressively, Amy continues to hone her skill and increase her knowledge through regular attendance at seminars and workshops. What can massage do to enhance your wellness model? Massage moves out the toxins that accumulate in the muscles improving how you feel and improving flexibility. Say goodbye to pain and stiffness! Massage provides a euphoric feeling and a true sense of well-being. So what will you ask for on your next birthday or anniversary? I suggest massage! You’ll walk away feeling younger and ready to seize every opportunity! Peggy is the owner of the Health and Wellness Group. If you are struggling with weight, lack of energy, or stress, or if you need an inspirational trainer for your sports or work team, give her a call at 541.678.3734 or email her at peggy.healthconsultant@ u

By Richard Grotsky I t was once told to me that people’s opinions were like Gemstones. Sometimes they like to show them off. Although you may not like a certain kind of Gem, if somebody else is proud of that stone, they should be allowed to show it off to others. That said, here are a few Gems I picked up this month when I asked:

QUESTION: “In life, what are the most important values you learned?” “Compassion, I think when you have compassion it gives you all the good traits you need as a person. because with compassion you realize every person is worthwhile, like a hidden Jewel.” - Maria, age 70, La Pine, Or. “I learned to understand other people’s perspectives.” - Dustin, age 19, Sun River, Or. “In life, I have learned friendship, forgiveness, and not taking things to literally.” - Shyane, age 16, La Pine, Or. “I have learned how to not judge others, to not trust too quickly, and to treat others as you would like to be treated.” - Jaime, age 24, La Pine, Or. “I have learned to do what’s right, not what’s popular. You must also develop close honest relationships with friends and family.” - Randy, age 50, Vancouver, Canada. “I have learned patience and understanding while dealing with life.” - Carroll, age 75, Vale, Or. u

The Foodie Column By T. Myers, Citizen Contributor Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, it is time to get ready for the summer season that falls between Mayuary and Augtober! (The kind of weather we had this spring was so weird that people close to me began to rename the months.) But, now? Breathe! We can see the sun! It’s a good thing, too, when we look at all of the things that happen in June. There are birthdays, graduation, lots of June weddings, and Father’s Day to name a few, so, it has to be good weather from now on! And it is time to make some foods that make us happy! (I was thinking about how happy it makes me to whip up Rice Krispies treats and eat them when they are still warm- stuff like that.) What makes me happy? Lately, biscuits and cornbread! My Ode to Cornbread is long overdue. When I think of how many things go with a delicious hunk of cornbread, my mouth waters. Something I picked up along the way is a technique to soak the corn meal in the hot recipe liquid- or even better cook it into a mush with the amount of liquid your favorite recipe calls for and cool it to use in the recipe. There will be no grit and the muffins, cornbread or corn cakes will be so much more moist. You will love them! GOLDEN CORNBREAD- You will need: 1 cup flour, 1 cup yellow corn meal, 2/3 cup sugar, 1 teas. Salt, 3-1/2 teas. baking powder, 1 egg, 1cup milk, 1/3 cup vegetable oil. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes in a 9 inch greased round cake pan. (Check with a tooth pick. You can add fresh corn kernels for texture. Cut in Cornbread baked in a wedges and serve with honey butter. Yum-Yum! cast iron skillet ads a JALAPENO CORNBREAD- 1-1/2 cup “crunchy” texture. cornmeal, 1 cup flour, 3 teaspoon Baking Powder, ½ teaspoon salt, 3 Tablespoons sugar, 1-1/2 cup milk, 3 large eggs, 3 Tablespoon oil, 11-15 ounces of drained fiesta style corn, 1-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or blend of jack and cheddar) and I dice deseeded jalapeno pepper without for mild, or with seeds for spicy bread. Mix and bake 30-35 minutes in a 9-inch pan at 375F degrees until lightly browned. Serve with butter. For a tender cornbread use buttermilk instead of regular milk. Honey makes a good substitute for sugar in any recipe and you can use any recipe as a muffin. YEAST RISING CORNBREAD- I use cornmeal in place of ½ of my bread flour and sweeten my favorite white bread recipe with honey. I make loaves of Corn Bread that slices and toasts and is wonderful for pork sandwiches or French toast with jalapeno jelly! Start by proofing your yeast, and then adding 5 cups of warm milk with 2-1/2 cups of cornmeal to soak. Add ½ cup oil, a generous teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of flour to make a sponge. Let it work with the yeast until it starts to puff, then stir it down and add enough flour to make the dough ready to rise. Divide into 2 loaves, let rise again and then bake at 350F degrees until the bottom of the pan sizzles. Usually about 50 minutes per loaf. Cornbread makes the meal better when paired with a steaming bowl of chili or stew. The bread is also fast and easy to bake. I hope you try a few recipes yourself this summer. Nothing tastes better with a bar-b-que’d steak, baked beans and salad than a fresh hot piece of cornbread. Bon Appétit! u

Recipe: Southern Shrimp and Grits By Rose Makena

Grits 1 ½ cups milk 2 cups water 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup quick grits (or white polenta) ½ cup mascarpone cheese Black pepper to taste Shrimp 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and chopped 1 medium onion, diced small ½ jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 3 ribs celery, chopped 1 teaspoons salt Freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 cups heavy cream One 14 1/2 oz. cans diced tomatoes 2 Tblspn fresh thyme, chopped small 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined Cholula or other hot sauce to taste

1. To make the grits: Combine 2 cups of water, the milk, salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the to a boil and slowly whisk in the grits. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the saucepan and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in the mascarpone cheese and black pepper. Cover and keep warm over a low heat. 2. To make the shrimp: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, until the mixture is medium golden, about 5 minutes. You have just made a roux! Add the onions and garlic and cook till soft then add the bell peppers, jalapeños, celery, salt, and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 3-4 minutes. 3. Slowly whisk in the cream. Once the cream is fully incorporated, slowly whisk in the tomatoes and thyme. Let the sauce simmer and thicken a bit. Stir in the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just opaque, about 4 minutes. Add the Cholula to taste. Garnish with Parmesean and chopped parsley. u

Southern Culture to South County (continued from page 21)

them to read the same book. A perfect example of this effort is Chicago Library’s “One Book, One Chicago” that has been delivering two books per year to the public since 2001. According to the Chicago Library website, this effort is “to cultivate a culture of reading and discussion in Chicago by bringing our diverse city together around one great book.” Colleen Galvin, a Deschutes Librarian and native Chicagoan, said that “we decided that we’re going to have our own program where we try to get the community to read one book and we design projects around it”. This idea was launched at Deschutes Library with large success. Each year since since the start of this Chef Rose Makena stirring Shrimp in Roux Sauce program, a book is selected by the Read using a wok. Rose has been doing cooking programs Together Selection Committee and the for the Deschutes library for three years and is accustomed to ‘bringing the kitchen with her’. Deschutes Public Library Foundation. Then the library designs free programs around the book to stimulate readership. For example, the library presents a southern food cooking demo that was described above, or a book discussion, or a movie screening about the period in which the book was written. After reading The Help, Colleen gave her approval, saying “This was just really felt like you knew these people”. “These people” meaning the maids and families in Jackson, Mississippi during the Civil Right’s Movement. Chef Rose Makena also read The Help and said she could relate to Minny, one of the main women in the story that is considered a sassy cook. Deschutes Library started its programs for Kathryn Stockett’s The Help on April first and continued the Michelle and Read Pate from Bend enjoy the shrimp and grits dish. programs at various branches for about a month. A Novel Idea routinely completes it celebration each year with a visit by the author. The Help has been a national bestseller for 54 weeks. It had become so popular in Central Oregon, that once the Library offered free tickets to hear the author, all 1,100 of the tickets were gone in 15 minutes. Kathryn Stockett appeared at the Tower Theater on May 7, and at Redmond High School on May 8. With a little “help”, the Deschutes Library was able to bring some southern culture to La Pine. Next year will undoubtedly be just as impressive, if not better. u

Recipe: Wilted Greens with Bacon and Currants

1-2 bunches of greens (kale, mustard, beet tops, collards) 2 strips of the best thick cut bacon you can find, cut into small pieces ½ small onion, diced small 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspn salt 1 Tblspn sugar A few grinds of pepper A few dashes of hot sauce (Cholula!) 4 Tblspn cider vinegar ½ cup chicken broth ½ cup dried currants

By Rose Makena Wash all greens thoroughly, strip out any thick, woody stems. Tear or chop all greens into 3-inch pieces, approximately! If using collards, which are much tougher than the other greens, stack the leaves and cut in fine strips. Cook the bacon in a large heavy bottomed pot until cooked but not crispy. Add onion and cook till soft and translucent. Add the garlic, salt, sugar, pepper and hot sauce. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and simmer a few minutes to reduce the liquid. Add the greens, broth and currants and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the greens till wilted and tender, using tongs to turn greens in broth. The greens could take anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes. Taste your greens and stop cooking when satisfied. u

On a bicycle, nothing is more dangerous than riding on the wrong side of the road. That is, riding against traffic. National statistics indicate that 60% of all the cycling deaths that occur while riding a bicycle are because the rider was on the wrong side of the road. With that thought in mind, let’s explore the three “R’s of bicycling. On a bicycle, you share the same ROADS as the other vehicles; you have the same RIGHTS as the other vehicles, and you have the same RESPONSIBILITIES as the other folks on the road. This is because, in Oregon, as in many other states, a bicycle is considered a vehicle. Oregon vehicle law is quite specific governing bicycle riding. Search the internet for “Oregon Bicycle Laws” and you will see what I mean. When a car driver is at an intersection waiting to turn right, he or she does not expect to have a cyclist show up on the wrong side of the street (riding against traffic) as they are turning their car. This is very upsetting to the driver and very dangerous for the cyclist. If you and the car collide, guess who wins? Other responsibilities for the cyclist include; stopping at all stop signs and traffic lights, using hand signals when turning or changing lanes, and riding on sidewalks. although there aren’t too many sidewalks is La Pine. Under Oregon law, all cyclists under the age of 16 are required to wear a helmet. and yes, you can get ticketed for not wearing your helmet and for the other abovementioned issues. On your bike, you are a vehicle. Off your bike and pushing, you are a pedestrian. Oh, and by the way, spend as much money for a helmet as you think your brain is worth! My wife and I have ridden our bicycles in many different states, and we have found Oregon to be one of the most bicycle friendly states in which we’ve ridden. Oregon motorists are courteous and understanding and very willing to “Share the Road”. A few years back, I rode the length of the Oregon coast on my bicycle and I do not remember one threatening moment or incident involving cars.although crossing the North Bend Bridge with the logging trucks got a little hairy. Next month, we’re going to lighten things up a little and go Sunstone hunting. You have to love La Pine and Central Oregon! u
