Master Photographer, Mike Jensen He describes the essence of his photography as “Capturing breathtaking moments, beautiful scenery, amazing products and making people look great!” Mike Jensen revels in all genres of photography from commercial photography & video work for many local businesses to landscapes, portraits and senior photos to capturing the beauty of the land we live in. Mike is a Sunriver based business owner who has been a photographer for almost 50 years. After spending over 35 years in corporate life management roles with organizations like Sprint, Applebee’s, Habitat For Humanity, and the Central Oregon Builders Association, Mike now owns a small Marketing/ Photography firm specializing in small to medium businesses. His company, JensenOne Marketing & Photography focuses on designing websites from a marketing perspective, and affordable photography solutions for the people of Central Oregon. Mike Jensen is well known in the Central Oregon region as a fun and informative teacher and workshop leader as well as being a frequent contributor of images and articles to many Central Oregon publications. To see some of Mike’s work in print, stop by the Sunriver Library until late January. Most recently Mike has published his first book on photography. Currently for sale as an iBook on Apple’s iTunes Bookstore (search “Photography In Oregon” at iTunes) and soon available on Photography In Oregon - Book 1 is the beginning of a photographic trip around the state of Oregon. The Photography In Oregon series is a “How to & Where to” guide to photography in Oregon. If you have an interest in photography from novice skills to professional you still need a scout and guide to the best photo spots in the state. The everyday tourist can access most photos in this book but as Jensen

describes “The big difference between the tourist level photo and the “hang on the wall” photos are usually what time you get up in the morning! With the type of camera gear we have at the entry & mid level, fantastic photos are within most everyone’s reach.” Book 1 includes some of Mike’s favorite places to photograph in Oregon. Because Oregon is such a diverse state Mike has divided this photographic effort into three books, possibly four. Book 1

the author has used to get the shots you see in the book. Mike says the hardest thing about photography is that there is no constant. Photography is all about managing light, and having the end image in mind. Yes, many times it boils down to luck, but once Mother Nature cooperates with the luck of the light and the weather, you have to have the skills to know what to do with it. That’s why Mike teaches Photography and Photoshop for COCC and writes monthly articles for the Sunriver Scene and the Newberry Eagle. “Many people have taken the time, and are available to me each day to teach me the basics of how to operate my camera, manage the light and work the subject. I think it’s my responsibility to give some of that back to others who are on their own photography discovery mission.” Mike serves on the Board of the Cascade Camera Club as their Mixed Media Chair and Webmaster. He is also a member of the BendLa Pine School District Board of Directors and Vice President of the Bend Heroes Association, a non-profit focusing on serving veterans.

The Silent Thief of Sight Glaucoma Offers No Warning, Symptoms, or Cure

By Dr. Graham Balcer, La Pine Eyecare Clinic

La Pine, Oregon (January 1st, 2014) – It can come with no warning and no noticeable symptoms. It is the second most common cause of blindness in the United States. “It” is glaucoma, the silent thief of sight, according to Dr. Graham Balcer. “January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month and we encourage all people, especially those at higher risk for this disease, to familiarize themselves with the potential symptoms and need for regular eye examinations,” Dr. Balcer said. “A regular eye examination is especially critical since a person with early-stage glaucoma may not notice any symptoms at all.” Dr. Balcer added that, while the early stage symptoms may not be noticeable, a person with more advanced glaucoma may notice blurred vision, the presence of halos around lights, loss of peripheral vision, and difficulty focusing on objects.

“Glaucoma affects an estimated 4 million Americans,” Dr. Balcer said. “Some people are more at risk than others.” Those at higher risk include: •People over the age of 60 •African-Americans over age 40 •People with diabetes •Individuals that have experienced a serious eye injury •Anyone with a family history of glaucoma “While there is no cure for glaucoma, early detection and treatment can slow or prevent further vision loss,” Dr. Balcer said. “First and foremost in the process is a comprehensive eye health exam by your family eye doctor.” Dr. Balcer is the owner and practitioner of La Pine Eyecare Clinic located at 16410 Third Street in La Pine.

Many children have received new sleds, tubes or snow toys for Christmas, and now is the time to PLAY! The snowfall this year has started out on the slow side, but is sure to pick up. There is still enough snow to take those kiddos and toys out for a day of snow play. The Wanoga sledding hill has just enough snow on it to make a day of fun. Fire pits at the base of the hill are a great place to warm up and watch the fun. Be sure to bring your own firewood!! There is also a very nice warming shelter and restrooms to make it a comfortable destination for a day in the snow. Many groups use the shelter for birthday and holiday parties for family gatherings. The warming shelter at Wanoga has a wood stove that is usually burning hot on a cold winter’s day! Bring a cooler full of goodies and make it a day. Cook hotdogs

or marshmallows on the fire outside or bring a Coleman stove to cook up some chili or soup. Snowshoe and Cross Country ski trails also leave from the Wanoga play hill parking lot. Maps of the local trails are posted as well as signage with the rules and regulations of the area. Managed as a mixed use area by the Forest Service, you will not only find non-motorized groups playing, but also Snowmobiles out on the adjacent trail system. Looking at the sledding hill from the base, you will realize the need for a quick safety talk with your kids. The “BIG” kids tend to play on the left side of the hill as it is steeper, and the right side of the hill is a better place for the little ones. “People Watching” is also a great part of this place, as many adults think they can outdo each other on the hill, often

ending up in spectacular crashes. If you are looking for a more quiet day of snow play, there are many areas with hills in the local LaPine and Sunriver area that can be accessed without the masses of tourists that visit Wanoga.

Oregon liquor privatization campaign gets rolling PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A collection of grocery store interests is leading a push to drive government out of the liquor business, a move Oregon’s liquor commission says would threaten the state’s financial stability by delaying revenue collection. Battle lines are forming along a traditional labor-business divide, with a twist. Large private industry sees a pot of money guarded by an outmoded post-Prohibition-era bureaucracy; public-sector unions are concerned privatization would eliminate about 100 government jobs. Liquor wholesale distributors who stand to lose money are also likely to oppose privatization. But another group could join the fray: Oregon’s craft distillers. At least one of these small businesses saw its revenues tank when neighboring Washington state privatized liquor on a grocery storefunded ballot measure last year. The political group Oregonians for Competition filed five initiative petitions with the state on behalf of the Northwest Grocery Association, which represents large grocery chains such as Fred Meyer and Safeway. The initiatives differ modestly in specifics, but all would allow liquor sales in stores that already sell beer and wine and are at least 10,000 square feet. Existing liquor stores would be allowed to stay open, and some smaller shops like wine specialty stores would be able to sell liquor. The group’s spokesman said Thursday that privatizing liquor would be more convenient to purchasers than the present system without endangering state finances or raising the price of liquor. “Consumers are generally concerned about the state both being the purveyor and regulator of alcohol,” said spokesman Pat McCormick. “They don’t see (the state) as the one that ought to be determining price and running distribution. Being in the liquor business is not something they want.” McCormick said he didn’t know whether grocery chains had calculated how much they stand to make if privatization is successful. Organized labor will oppose privatization, said Oregon American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees political director Joe Baessler. “We’ll fight it,” said Baessler. “We’ll put in resources, and it won’t be an insignificant amount.” The governing board of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission argues it has already taken steps to make buying liquor more convenient with a so-called hybrid plan that allows grocery stores to sell liquor but keeps the purchasing power of the OLCC behind it. The OLCC board will bring the hybrid plan before the Legislature in February. At present, the OLCC buys liquor in bulk for distribution to liquor stores, which pay a set price and can ask for smaller quantities of various liquors that OLCC board chairman Rob Patridge said Continued page 7

would not be available from a private distributor. “My stand on it is we’ve got a system that works that’s a stable revenue source for the state,” Patridge said. Patridge argues that now, money goes directly to the state, but under the privatization proposal, the state would have to wait one month for money to reach its coffers. Such a delay would be fiscally disastrous, Patridge said. McCormick said he’s unsure whether that complaint holds water. “Whatever logistical issues he’s referring to, I’d be happy to have that conversation, but I don’t know what he’s talking about,” McCormick said. The OLCC works like this: The liquor commission buys in bulk from wholesale brokers or manufacturers themselves — bourbon producers in Kentucky, importers of Swedish vodka, micro-distillers on the Portland waterfront — and ships them to one of about 240 privately-owned, state-licensed liquor stores at wholesale prices set by the broker or distillery. The OLCC then charges a 104 percent markup, some of which is divided among commissions to the liquor store and OLCC operating costs. The majority of the markup then goes to state, county and city governments, as well as treatment programs for mental health and substance abuse. The initiative is still in its infancy, as is the fundraising behind it, but the petition to gather signatures has already made waves. On Friday, Jesse Cornett, a former policy adviser to former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, filed an election complaint against signature-gathering campaign, saying two separate canvassers told him that convenience stores would be able to sell liquor if the initiative passes, which is not true. Most of the Northwest has state-run liquor stores, except Washington state, where voters in 2011 approved the sale of liquor in grocery stores, along with other larger retailers. The price of liquor originally jumped, but moderated and is now slightly higher than it was before privatization. The move also put former Washington State Liquor Control Board agents out of work, but state revenue from spirit taxes and fees grew significantly. Oregon stores on the Washington border reported a spike in sales. The Washington state vote also brought with it a sales tax and a per-liter tax. Patridge said small distilleries would be hit as hard in Oregon as they have been in Washington state since privatized liquor. “This could be the nail in the coffin for craft distillers.”

Boy Scouts of Central Oregon Christmas Tree Recycling Info for Dec 2013 & Jan 2014

Your local Boy Scout troops are excited to begin the collection and recycling of Christmas trees in your community the weekends of December 28th & 29th and again on January 4th & 5th. We request a donation of at least $5 but will gladly accept any donation over that amount. All the money raised from the boys’ efforts goes directly to the individual Scout troops. Your donation is used to fund local troop activities, community service projects and to replace worn out camping and other outdoor gear that the boys use throughout the year. Individual troops in your area will post door flyers specifying which days they will be picking up trees in your neighborhood. If you live within the City limits of Bend or Redmond you do not need to call to have your tree picked up. Other cities and areas of the County have their contact phone numbers listed below.

Mason pointed out that the recycling project provides a service to the community; reduce the incidents of dumped trees in building lots or on public lands, reduces fire danger and teaches organizational skills and team building efforts to the Scouts involved at all levels of the project. This is a boy lead and boy managed program. We estimate that these boys recycle 7500 trees each year. A big thank you goes out to the communities who have made this event a big success and improved the lives of so many boys through Scouting. The mission of Boy Scout is to create the leader of tomorrow through outdoor challenges and education.

- Commissioner DeBone Graduates County College

Salem - Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone was among the 21 graduates of the 2013 County College program who received their certificates at the Association of Oregon Counties (AOC) Annual Conference last week in Lane County. Commissioner DeBone is now one of 57 current county commissioners and county judges in Oregon to have completed the County College program. There are 120 elected county commissioners and county judges from Oregon’s 36 counties. AOC, in partnership with the Oregon State University Extension Service, offers the County College program every other year following the general election. The program is primarily designed for newly elected county

commissioners and county judges, but is open to sitting commissioners and judges and other county staff as space allows. The program is a broad overview of county government responsibilities in Oregon. Everything from human resources to road repair to mental and public health, law enforcement and communication with constituents is covered. There are also sessions on legal responsibilities, public meetings and records and ethics rules. Experts from county government and outside government are brought in to teach the courses and offer their expertise and perspective. Not only does it offer an opportunity to learn first-hand about the challenges

A Holiday Story La Pine By T. Myers

Part Two - A two part Holiday Story for December 1st and January 1st

In part one, we met the young heroine, Sarah O’Rilea and her parents, John and Rose, and her brother, Nathaniel and sister, Emily who get lost in a terrible snow storm right before Christmas. Her parents entered the cabin. “I didn’t find them,” John said quietly. “I had to stop under a grove of trees and if I had not been by the fence, I would never have been able to get back here. We will have to wait until I can get to the neighbor’s and add some folks to help with the search.” Rose and John were very solemn. Sarah knew that this was dangerous weather for anyone and she also knew that her sister and brother were not prepared for the plunging temperatures and the heavy snow. Christmas was two days away. No one in the room could think of anything more than saving the children… END OF PART 1

Part Two

Sarah felt responsible for letting the two siblings leave like they did. “Mother? I should never have let them go yesterday.” “It isn’t your fault, Sarah,” Rose said. “We both know that your brother gets a thought in his head and he is not likely to stop before he does what he wants to do.” “You did not know any more than we did that the weather was turning so bad. “ John told his worried daughter. “But now, I have to get some help. Even though it is still stormy, we need to try to find both of them before it is too late to help them.” Sarah’s parents looked at each other. The expression on their faces said everything. This was a dire situation for Sarah’s brother and sister and time was against them already/ John put on several layers of shirts and his Mackinac red plaid jacket over his long duster and then he donned his matching wool hat with the ear flaps and set his big brimmed cowboy hat over. He took a loaded shotgun down from the rack and put a box of shells in his pocket and gave Rose and Sarah tight hugs before leaving for the neighbors’. “I’ll be back for some sandwiches in a few minutes.” Rose looked out after her husband and she was thankful that the snow had eased up some and she could see across the yard to the barn. She turned to her daughter who was already cutting slabs of bread and cheese for sandwiches. She assembled the meal and wrapped it with a piece of oil cloth. Rose added some peppermint drops for her husband’s pocket. They waited together until John poked his head back in. “Ready?” he asked. “I am going to follow the west fence line to the road that goes over to the Lechner’s. If we are lucky, Nathaniel and Emily went that way in the storm.” Sarah saw that her father was saying this out loud, like someone who was praying that it would be true, and she tried to smile encouragingly. When the door closed this time, Sarah felt like she was alone- even though her mother stood nearby.

and tremendous responsibility of county government, County College also offers an opportunity for elected commissioners and judges from across the state to get to know one another and learn more about the rest of the state. Commissioner DeBone joins fellow Deschutes County commissioners Tammy Baney and Alan Unger as County College graduates. Oregon State University President Ed Ray congratulates Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone with AOC Executive Director Mike McArthur at County College commencement


There was nothing to do except make themselves as busy as possible and the two women went to work baking for the annual New year party that they were praying to attend with all of their family members. John O’Rilea rode his horse close to the fence line west of his property until he came to the narrow wagon trace that cut through the woods towards his neighbor’s. The snow was letting up and the wind seemed to be dying down. He had two thoughts. One, if it cleared and wasn’t windy, the temperature would plummet to extremely col. Secondly, he had a very small window of time to locate the children and it was crucial to get some others involved in the search. In less than an hour he was tying up his horse out in front of the cabin when Emil Lechner opened his front door. “What are you doing out in this weather, John?” Lechner asked. “Nathaniel and Emily went missing yesterday when the storm hit and I need help to find them.” “Get in here and let’s figure out what we are doing,” Lechner motioned for John to come inside. The warm cabin was a welcome change after the ride through the storm. Lechner and his three sons were around the table. Missus Lechner filled up big stoneware cups with piping hot coffee from the cook stove. The five men sat down to discuss what they needed to do while they ate thick slices of fresh baked bread and jam. Before twenty minute passed the men had a game plan and they were pulling together bedrolls, guns, heavy coats and hats, Lechner grabbed a gold compass that was hanging next to the door and they headed to the barn. John pulled his horse inside for a drink and a measure of grain that one of the sons put into a feed bag. While they saddled up, he saw the steam rising from his mount and John wiped his horse down with a potato sack to help dry the gelding before going back into the cold. The men mounted up and left the yard to start their search. John and the middle son, Elijah, would head towards the ridge to check the caves and rocks along the river and Emil and his youngest son, Abraham, would follow the tree line to the north. Gabriel, the eldest Lechner boy

ran trapping lines and he would check out the areas by the beaver ponds. The weather cleared miraculously and as they split up, they agreed to go up to an hour by horseback and then return to the set out point to reconnoiter. Gabriel was a key figure in the search because he had an eye for anything out of the ordinary, so if there were tracks or some sign anywhere close to him, he would be able to spot it even though the wind had blown snow over most of the traces that would be visible to others in the search party. Now that the weather was clearing, there was also hope that the two children would be able to raise their voices or make their way back home. Hopefully. John and Elijah were making good time through the drifted snow. It was powdery and easy to ride through. They moved close to the river checking out the rock formations and small caves known to be places that the Paiutes camped in years before. The ridge was not far from the fence line that the children were supposed to check on. Suddenly, Elijah hollered back to John. “Someone is coming south up there,” Elijah pointed to what looked to be a figure in the distance. John rode up beside the boy and the two of them headed for the lone figure. The closer they got John thought he recognized the man as being one of the trappers that worked with Ray Morehouse. As the man approached he recognized the beaver hat and furs draped over the man’s shoulders. “Good.” Before anyone could speak, young Elijah approached the man and asked,” Have you seen the O’Rilea children? They went missing yesterday and we are trying to find them.” “Who?” the man asked as he walked closer to the riders. “My two children on horseback got lost when they went out to check our fence line yesterday at noon,” John told the fellow. “We have to find them because the temperature is dropping and there is a chance that they are alive somewhere and need help.” Elijah added, “One of them is a girl, Mister.” The trapper understood the severity of the situation. “I have a cave I stay in just over there.” He pointed to the hillside to the west. “There are no signs that they have been through here and I was out yesterday during the worst of it and again early this morning. I would know if they were close.” See Holiday Story page 12

Holiday Story

continued from page 9 The disappointed searchers thanked the man and told them where to reach them if he needed to. They continued along the river for a few more minutes and returned to the place they started. Emil and Abraham were already waiting. Gabriel did not come. They decided that John and Elijah would go after Gabriel and Emil and the youngest would return to the Lechner homestead. They were riding up the trail towards the marsh land where all of the beaver dams had created wetlands and they saw a rider coming towards them at a gallop. When the rider got close enough to tell that it was Gabriel they both head him say that he found the children and needed help to get them back. “They are just a mile from here. During the whiteout they were disoriented and the horses kept going until they were in the middle of the marsh,” Gabriel told them as they rode. It was mucky under the frozen layer and the horses were sinking every other step. They reached an area that seemed to be what remained of a very large beaver home at the edge of a watery area. There were two horses standing off to the right. They were huddled together and were covered with snow. The saddles and gear were gone. They would have to work their way across the pond to get to the shelter. They all managed to get to the horses and John jumped down to check out where the children should be- inside the beaver shelter. There they were. Wrapped tightly in the horse blankets in each other’s arms and barely breathing because they were so cold. John grabbed Emily and Gabriel took Nathaniel and they both began to rub them vigorously. Elijah brought the bedrolls from the horses and they wrapped them up. Then Elijah took the saddle blankets and gear out to the horses and got them ready for the ride home. John put Emily in front of him on the saddle and as she warmed she began to babble about the cold. He was certain that she was suffering frostbite. Nathaniel was reviving and he managed to speak a little to Elijah as he warmed up. Gabriel held the reins of the two faithful horses and the party worked their way back to the Lechner’s. Mrs. Lechner had put pans of water on her stove for supper dishes and she set them on the floor for the children’s feet. After a few minutes of intense pain from the warm water bath, Emily and Nathaniel began to fill in the blanks for the family. “We got lost and we thought we had turned around for home, but we couldn’t see,” Emily told them. She sipped a cup of beef broth that she savored for the warmth as well as the salty flavor. “Even the horses seemed to lose their sense of direction. The wind made it hard for them to smell where they were I guess. Next thing I know is that we were in the marsh and I pulled apart the side of the beaver dam and tied the horses off until we could get inside. The horses were with us at the opening until I went to sleep. I couldn’t get them to lie down, though,” Nathaniel went on. “Thank, God you are both alive!” Emil said. “It is an answer to our prayers! You children will stay here and your Papa will ride home and let your family know that you are safe. Tomorrow we will take you home.” John finished his coffee and left for home. Sarah was taking another pan of gingerbread out of the oven when her father came through the door. Rose was in the barn milking. John explained that the children were recovering from the cold at the neighbor’s and rushed out with his horse to the barn to talk with his wife. Sarah sat down at the table and said a prayer telling God thank you for helping her sister and brother come home safely.

Volume 1, Issue 6 • January 1, 2014

On Christmas Eve day, the Lechners arrived in their wagon, carrying the O’Rilea Children. Sarah and Rose had prepared a wonderful meal for all of them and Sarah bounded outside to help her siblings out of the wagon. The horses were unhitched because it was very cold and they were led to the barn by the two men and the rest of the family went inside to get comfortable and settled for the celebration. Emily was as chatty as usual and Nathaniel just seemed happy to return home. The conversation was all about being safe and how grateful the two families were for the help they got in the search. The meal of bread and stew was delicious and disappeared along with the two custard pies that Mrs. Lechner brought. By the time the cow needed milking, the Lechners had gone home and John and his family were settled into their warm cabin to get ready for Christmas. They spent the evening reading the story of the birth of Jesus from the Bible and putting final touches on the tree and the food for the next day. Mother’s cottage cheese was soft and creamy and would be a good addition to the Christmas menu of potatoes, venison roast, turnips, mincemeat pie and baked rolls with butter. It would be difficult to wait for such a great repast. Everyone was wrapped warmly for the trip to church for Christmas morning and when they returned, the O’Rileas ate their dinner and opened their presents expressing their delight in the gifts they shared. By bedtime, the wind was whipping up again and it looked like another storm would hit before midnight. John checked on the barn door and ran a rope back to the house so they had a hand hold if the snow was deep! Father kept the stove banked by getting up through the night. The storm had hit hard and when it was time to go outside, John and Sarah and rose had to lean against the storm door to push the snow away. With only six days before everyone would come to their place for a New Year’s Eve party. They would hope that they could clear the yard and around the house so wagons could pull up outside. The barn was huge, so if they lit the wood stove and cleared the straw off the floor, put the horses in the stalls on the other side, the entire town could come in from the winter cold and celebrate together. It was a covered dish event, so people would bring their own tableware and silverware. All the O’Rileas would do is put meat on the fire spit built beside the cold house and see to making coffee for a crowd. Even that would be helped along by the Mary Martha women from church. This year they all would celebrate the fact that the two children lived through being lost- and lived to tell the tale. Even the trappers, the loggers and the merchants would all be coming to the farm to dance and sing and enjoy a community party in the biggest building in the county. The building was put up in a barn raising and the promise was that every year it would be used to thank the people who helped erect it. And this year would be no different. The week went quickly with all of the shoveling and preparations in the barn. John was able to bring in greens to decorate. The Christmas tree was moved out and Rose polished the stack of finished planks that were set up on saw horses as tables along the end by the stove. Hay bales were added for seating and a few hurricane lanterns were filled for lights. A big pile of wood was brought in and by the very day of the party, both of the children who had gone missing were working as hard as the rest of the family to get ready. The girls helped rose make cookies and bread. Nathaniel helped his dad make butter and work the separator for cream and milk. The barn’s side room was keeping the cold items as cool as the cooler in the cabin, so the family put everything in the room that needed to be stored. By two o’clock people started to arrive. It got dark by five and families needed to be tucked in and settled for the party before that. John and Nathaniel lit the yard lanterns and the Lechner boys helped settle the horses. When the pastor said the evening meal prayer, there were close to fifty neighbors inside the barn. The musicians took their place up in the loft and the party began with the meal followed by dancing and singing of Christmas carols and favorite tunes. By two in the morning, the floor was covered with sleeping adults and children who would wake up, have coffee and an assortment of baked goods and be on their way to their homes once it got light. John poured the fresh milk into big pitchers and Rose poured the coffee or milk while Sarah, Emily and other friends handed out slices of bread and butter with preserves, baked rolls and as they were preparing to wish their friend goodbye until Sunday, the is currently welcoming new patients of all ages General Store owner surprised Accepting most Insurance and self pay every guest with a big round Joannie and her dedicated team – orange that came all the way Serving the La Pine Community for more than 10 Years from California.

What started out to be an “Ugly Sweater” contest ended up as a creative Christmas costume contest. La Pine Eyecare and La Pine Dental Center doctors and staff came to work sporting crazy sweaters and hairdos that brought smiles to everyone. It was a contest between the two offices. Everything from Grinch characters including Cindy Lou WHO to fun nerdy sweaters were worn and decorated, including a Santa rug.

He had the privilege of sizing up and scoring each costume, giving each one points. Dr. Moss and Dr. Balcer even dressed for the occasion. Pizza was served, and laughter resounded throughout La Pine Eyecare during the lunch hour.

La Pine Chamber BUZZ

La Pine Chamber Moves to New Location! By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter It is always fun to move during the coldest part of the year, but the space is ready and the La Pine Chamber is ready to grow into the future, so staff and volunteers have packed up the boxes, the furnishings and some of their dreams and they have moved to the next building to the north where Twigs/Gary and Sandy’s Appliance store used to be located. So the Chamber is moving before the first of the year! But, it won’t just be the Chamber of Commerce! Chamber Executive Director, Ann Gawith, wants to create what she is calling Communication Central right in one stop! Along with the Chamber of Commerce, three other businesses are moving into the new building: KITC FM Radio, The Newberry Eagle and La Pine Frontier Days will all be under one roof. It begins of course, with a remodel to add the needed offices and then create a bigger brighter visitor’s center. When you walk into the building, you will notice that there are some wonderful pieces of Marv Russell furniture. The big desk for the volunteers used to be in the main office at the furniture store. There are several chairs and a couple of tables that were hidden in the overabundance of room the Chamber used to have! As the Chamber builds its new displays there will be more take-away information for people, more information for our area

businesses and a better way to display everything we have to offer. Do you need a free copy of the latest Eagle Highway Magazine? Stop in the lobby and pick up a copy! If you are interested in finding out about Frontier Days, or watching a local radio broadcast take place, you are invited to come and see what you can learn. Do you need your Crab Feed tickets? They will be available at the office. Do you want to volunteer for community service? Stop by the Chamber and let them contact local organizations that will be happy to put you to work. When you need an application to be part of a community event, or to get tickets for a community event, stop by and pick them up at one place. Do you want to join the Chamber? You do not need to own a business to join the Chamber. You can be a friend of the Chamber or join as a member business! So, if you are ready for the 411 on what is happening in La Pine, stop by the Chamber after January 1st. Winter hours are still 10-2 pm weekdays.(Closed for Holidays) Display racks are located on the front of the building and they will feature the most popular pieces to stop and grab. The popular Member’s Bulletin Board is mounted outside the front door! And, if you have questions, please call us at 541-536-9771. One of us will be happy to help you. Check out our Website at

Santa and the Christmas Basket Give-Away By Sandra Jones, Eagle Reporter La Pine, Oregon, Dec. 21, 2013 – Santa would like to thank all of the volunteers that helped at the La Pine Christmas Basket give-away. Many people in the community volunteered for many hours to put the food baskets together, and give them to the families in La Pine. Turkeys, milk, and lots and lots of food were given on Saturday, December 21st at the La Pine Community Center. Volunteers worked hard all day Friday and Saturday getting ready. Santa is very appreciative, and sees the hard work that was done. Volunteers went the extra mile and delivered baskets to families that could not get to the center to pick up their baskets. It was a very busy group of volunteers. There were extra turkeys left

after all the families were taken care of. The extra turkeys were dispursed to La Pine community organizations. “It was a great bunch of people that donated their time, and I was in awe,” says Santa.

Q. How are deductibles managed at LCHC for your primary care medical needs? A. Medicare’s annual deductible is $147.

LCHC is a federally qualified health center, so the annual deductible is waived for our Medicare patients! All other insurances—if you have a deductible and cannot afford to meet it, call the clinic to find out about our discounted fee program. Even if you have health insurance coverage, as a federally qualified health center, we can offer you a discounted fee if you qualify. You would only pay $25, $30 or $35 for each visit (depending on your household income), the charges would be applied to your insurance deductible and the remaining amount would be written off.

When is a Community Center Just That? By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

Over the past few months, there have been a series of complaints and comments that the La Pine Park and Recreation District would like an opportunity to address publicly. After the snowfall caused the demolition of the White School in the early 90s, a metal building was put up on the corner of First and Morson. It continued to be called the White School. The park and the John C Johnson Center had once been the old bus garage and woodshop. It all became the White School Complex. The new building is the result of a renovation of the metal building replacing the Old White School and as the


work drew to a close, the LPRD board officially named it the La Pine Community Center when it began to live up to its purpose of being all that the park wanted it to be! Why was the name changed to Community Center instead of Event Center? It has to do directly with the fact that monies used to finish the building are dependent on providing youth and education programs. The Current Executive Director, Bob Schulz, wants to remind the public that the previous director and previous boards pushed for these community programs. The current Board of Directors goes along with the original plans as explained in the next paragraph. With the increase in population and more involvement in each of the

La Pine Community Center; front entrance recreation and after school programs since Schulz came on the scene in September of 2012, they will continue to use the building to house the expanded District programs. In January the Community School program will increase with the elementary school element. So it starts with the modern history of the District. The LPRD was funded by voters in 2010, and they were charged with two things to accomplish: renovate the metal building and grow activities for people in the District. The board had a specific platform of creating opportunities for local children and adults to improve recreation programs and extend services to improve sports programs and expand those existing programs like football, soccer and basketball while they determined how they would bring the giant building up to code and make it ready to accommodate the programs and activities for the Park District. During the first two years of the renovation of the old metal building, the site was made available for several long time community programs like Toy Run sponsored by SCOOTR and the Christmas Basket Association. Because it was a transition time for the LPRD, the parties involved were told that there would be changes in the future so that LPRD programs would be housed in the building. The old event center was renamed the La Pine Community Center in 2012 and as the renovations drew to a close, the Community School Program and the adult education program took their place inside the Community Center. LPRD made every effort to accommodate people who wanted to continue the programs, by offering staging at the Finley Butte building, even going to the point of offering storage containers for food and toy staging for the Christmas annual events. Because the building was being used for the activities it was designed to hold, it was no longer possible to use it for the two to three week long staging activities for toys and Christmas Baskets.

Now it is no longer possible to use the LPRD Community Center for more than the current programs and three day rentals during the year and modified rentals during the summer. The community was able to use the building for two years longer than they had expected when LPRD became a tax funded District in 2010. During the two years that elapsed, the Christmas Basket Association and the SCOOTR organization both asked members to step up and take on the event, finding proper housing for the Christmas events. Other sites in the area were explored for possible distribution centers and no suitable options were discovered. SCOOTR decided that after fifteen years they were going on hiatus and giving their funds to Toys for Tots and applications were handed over to the COVO office in La Pine Square. The Christmas Basket Association negotiated Friday- Saturday and Sunday to work out of the La Pine Community Center and they set up December 21st for their day to hand out baskets. This year the two years were up. With a good Community Center for LPRD activities in place, a Senior Activity Center ready to host activities and many organizations in La Pine who would like to hold community wide events, the answer seems to be a simple one. The Community still needs an Event Center. That place needs to be available for the big events like Frontier Days, the La Pine Rodeo, and new events that would be for the entire region. LPRD is currently waiting for the transfer of 150 acres to be used by the community for Rodeo Grounds and Frontier Days. The board is waiting for the completion of the County survey of lands and then they will reach out to committed partners to form a working committee that will make recommendations to the park District for developing these acres for public use. For information about the LPRD Park District, you can contact the administrative office and talk with Executive Director, Bob Schulz. 541-536-2223

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter When is the best time of year to be with friends? For the New Year celebration, of course! If you cannot be with those that you appreciate and love, then be sure that you get that holiday card in the mail. It is time to reflect on the past year and the thing I want to talk about the most is friendship. I am not limiting friendship to being those who are not a part of your blood family, instead I am talking about how the people in your life influence and impact you with their caring and sharing, their concerns and challenges and the reality of lives shared by you and your special pals. About a month ago, I realized that I have lost someone who has been a big part of my life for forty years. She and I connect through the year even though we live far apart and at least touch bases. She does not email. She doesn’t return a phone call anymore and I wonder if I have done something that caused it to happen. I have sent out a snail mail letter hoping she will give me a shout out and in the meantime, I have spent time reliving many of the memories I share with her. I introduced her to her longtime husband. He died several years ago from complications to his MS. I shared classes with her at college when we were both young women. She helped me through my cancer recovery and I was front and center at her wedding and for the birth of her first child, my godchild. You can’t just lose a longtime friendship without fighting for it! She is one of the people who had a sense of who I always thought I would

grow up to be and I feel the same about what I knew of her hopes and dreams. We both shared disappointments. I was divorced and she was a widowyet, we had those common beliefs in the beginning of our adulthood and they seemed important enough to keep. So what do you do when this happens? It is similar to a divorce. It is a little death. Even though it may work out that I can resurrect the friendship out of the ashes, for now it is a loss. We cannot do without people. For all of the trouble they cause us, so do they give us joy and hope for a better life. Together with the friends you make in this life, you can plow through the problems and the pain to find light at the end of the journey, and with their help, you can start new journeys that you take together. After all Life is about the journey, not the place you end up. So do yourself a favor. Look at the people in your life and decide who you still value enough to thank and then get busy letting those people know how much you appreciate them and what they give to you because they are your friends. Make a list of a few people who used to be a big part of your everyday life and reach out with a letter to ask how they have been since the last time you were together. Set aside one day a month after the age of fifty, to remember your old stories of friendship by telling your children, or writing them in a journal so they are not lost. Friends are everything.

Quality Hospice Care Requires Currie, Commitment to Living Ellen Eagle Reporter

The re-opening of Newberry Hospice in La Pine as Heart ‘N Home represents the evolution of hospice and palliative care for the residents of Newberry Country. While hospice is often believed to be focused on death and grieving, Heart ‘n Home is committed to the idea that end-of-life care is about living. It’s about living life to its fullest, making each journey the best it can be up to the final moment. Jim Smith, previous owner of Newberry Hospice, has dedicated his life to providing comfort and care to patients diagnosed with a terminal illness. When Hospice of Bend closed their La Pine office in 1996, Jim maintained hospice services as the owner/ operator of Newberry Hospice. As the new Executive Director of Heart ‘N Home in La Pine, Jim continues his commitment to quality hospice care. He believes that this new partnership will allow them to provide services to more patients as well as to expand community knowledge about what they have to offer. Many potential patients and family members are not aware that hospice and palliative care can relieve pain and improve the quality of life for months prior to end-of-life. Heart ‘N Home is a family owned and operated company that was first established in 2004. The La Pine office is one of six locations in OR and ID. Cindy Lee and sons Kristopher and Todd Stice, as founders and owners of Heart ‘N Home, are actively involved in the operation and continued development of the company. Cindy Lee serves as RN, CEO, and Administrator while Kristopher serves as Senior VP of Human Resources and Todd is Senior VP of Finance. All 3 family members work together to achieve their vision of becoming the “School of Hospice” for the country. Their emphasis

on innovation, quality patient care, and employee satisfaction sets them apart from businesses in the healthcare field. In October of 2013, Heart ‘n Home was recognized by Modern Healthcare Magazine as one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. CEO Cindy Lee is proud to say that they have never turned a patient away for financial reasons. They work with Medicare, Medicaid, private insurances, and other resources to ensure that hospice care is available to those in need. Heart ‘N Home is committed to providing legendary customer service for Newberry Country. Additional information is available at 1-800-HOSPICE or

Sunriver Books & Music By Deon Stonehouse Happy New Year! We hope your holidays were joyful and the New Year will be filled with comfort and joy.

January 11th at 5:00 PM we are going to do something entirely different. I hope you will bear with me while I explain a little bit of background. Publishing and bookselling have undergone some rather dramatic changes over the past decade. Some good, some not so good. A decade ago there were bricks and mortar bookstores all over the USA. No longer, in this entire great land of ours there are fewer than 2,000 Independent Bookstores. Rather than feeling gloomy, booksellers are hopeful that the future will be brighter. I had the pleasure of listening to Malcom Gladwell, author of David and Goliath, in Kansas City in 2013. He was gung ho about the future of Independent Bookstores in the USA, citing many of the bookstores he has enjoyed visiting and waxing poetic on the attributes that make them special. Gladwell contends that what will save Independent Bookstores is the quality and

diversity of their collections. He maintains their strength is in the fact that their shelves are filled with books that are curated, selected with care by their owners reflecting the differences in their reading habits. The booksellers are familiar with the books they carry and are able to convey their enthusiasm for the stories therein. I think he is right. Whenever we traveled we always looked for Independent Bookstores because we enjoyed seeing the way each bookstore had different selections, allowing us to become acquainted with the works of different authors with excellent writing. We hope this is true of our bookstore; we try very hard to have the best selections of books that reflect those stories and authors who find resonance with us. That is except for one section of our bookstore, more on that later. Publishing is also under siege. Between reduced revenue from e-readers and an economic rollercoaster over the past few years, publishing has faced challenges that affect authors. The result is that it is harder for a debut author to find a publisher and many mid-list authors have lost their publishers.

At the same time, it is becoming easier for authors to self-publish their books. Coming back to that one section of the store that is not curated, we have a consignment area for self-published authors. Many people have a story that they feel strongly they want to tell. We did not want to set ourselves up as judges on the merit of their stories. Instead, with few exceptions, we allow most authors the ability to have access to the consignment section of the store; the reader is the judge of the stories. Some may resonate with you, based on what you like to read, while others may not. This part of our bookstore is not curated; it includes a variety of topics from mysteries, to fiction, to limericks, to many other subjects. There are a few limitations on subject matter; otherwise the books are a cornucopia of subjects, genres, and writing styles. The consignment area allows some self-published authors access to our community of readers. Some of the selections are quite interesting, such as Keith Thye’s Moto Raid about his motorcycle journey across Africa. Les Joslin wrote Uncle Sam’s Cabins, a very useful book on unique places to stay, he plans be one of the featured authors for the event. Many of the books in are written by Oregon authors.

Our January event will be a celebration of the diversity of Oregon authors, focusing on selfpublished works, and be an opportunity to hear from several of them at one time. Each author will speak briefly about his or her story allowing you to get to know them and their subjects. Oregon has a vibrant community of authors; this is one part of that group. And it is a lot of fun to hear from several new authors at an event, we enjoy this format at bookseller’s events and have a great time. So we are going to try sharing that type of experience with our community and at the same time highlight a few of your friends and neighbor’s stories. It is a faster moving format than our usual author events, as each author will speak briefly giving you a snapshot of their book, then we move on to the next. A list of the authors appearing will be in our January newsletter and on our website in January, I did not have a complete list at deadline time and wanted to share with you the philosophy of the event, the names you can catch in our January newsletter or at It should be fun, we hope you join us. There will be refreshments and drawings for door prizes.

Signed Contracts to Buy U.S. Homes Level Off

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy existing homes in November was essentially unchanged from October, suggesting sales are stabilizing after several months of declines. The National Association of Realtors said Monday that its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index ticked up to 101.7 from 101.5 in October. The October figure was revised lower from an initial reading of 102.1. Higher mortgage rates and strong price gains over the past two years

have slowed sales. The pending home sales index had fallen for five straight months before November. And completed sales of existing homes fell for three straight months, the Realtors said earlier this month. There is generally a one- to twomonth lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. The average interest rate on a 30year mortgage edged higher to 4.48 percent last week, from 4.47 percent the previous week. Rates jumped about 1.25 percentage points from May through September, peaking at 4.6 percent. That increase occurred

FOOD & RECIPES By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter When Christmas and New Year’s Eve fall in the middle of the week- you need to be ready to celebrate through the weekend following each date! During the month of December, we made it through some of the coldest temperatures on record in La Pine. By Sunday morning the gauge hit over 39 below zero in the area! All the same. We had Holiday Boutiques, The Christmas Bazaar, LPRD Community School activities, the Chamber Christmas Potluck, the Light Parade, the Wreaths Across America, the Crescent Creek Family Christmas event that hosted over 400 people and a long list of private partieseach designed to make the season more wonderful! With that said, and it still being cold outside, you might organize your New Year’s celebration to include a couple favorite recipes that will make everyone very happy they came to the party! At a recent LULU event at the La Pine Library, we made crumble topping and hot cocoa mix to take home as gifts from your kitchen. One of the requests made was to feature the Pumpkin Crumble recipe- so here it is! This is pie without the pie crust and crispy crumble on top instead!


9X13 buttered dish. Oven on 350 and pull together the ingredients: 1 Yellow cake mix (divided into 1 cup reserve and the other two cups in a bowl) 1 egg ½ cup butter, melted Mix these three ingredients and pat down on the bottom of the buttered baking dish.

1 large can (29 oz) pumpkin puree 2 eggs, beaten ½ cup white sugar Spices: 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg or ½ teaspoon ginger and ¼ teaspoon cloves 2/3 cup evaporated milk or ½ and ½.

Mix the wet ingredients and pour over the top of the baking dish ingredients. Step three is to take the reserved cup of cake mix and ¾ cup of white sugar and ½ cup of melted butter (Yes, another stick that you soften and create a crumble topping for the top of the dish). I add chopped pecans or walnuts and you can add any wonderful crunchy topping with the crumble- coconut is good, too! Bake this in the oven for 55 minutes (350). Cool completely and cut into squares for service with whipped cream or ice cream. This is as easy a dessert as one can put together and it still gives you the wonderful flavor of Pumpkin pie with a twist!

Here is another recipe for Italian Anise Toast. It is salt and fat free and with four simple ingredients it is a must have for gifts, for babies who are teething, for heart patients who want a treat or for dipping in a good glass of Chianti! Set the oven to 350. Grease a regular loaf pan and have a large cookie sheet available for when you slice the fi nished loaf for additional toasting.

1 Cup Flour 2/3 Cup Sugar 2 Beaten Eggs 1 Teaspoon of crushed Anise Seed. Mix the ingredients together after you crush the seeds well. Pour the thick butter into the loaf pan and bake for approximately 20 minutes. The loaf will be springy to touch and lightly browned. Remove the loaf from the pan and slice into ½ inch pieces. Lay the pieces in a single layer on the cookie sheet. You might need to spray with a little PAM. Toast on each side for 5-7 minutes. Cool and store in a covered container. These also freeze well. The Italian Anise Toast is the forerunner to modern day Biscotti, but without the extra leavening ingredients and oil and salt, it is a great alternative to other more complicated recipes for twice baked goodies. I still prefer these simple cookies for the holidays and throughout the year. Good Crumble topping for a strained can of fruit is: 1 cup oats, 1 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar and ½ cup melted butter. Just mix and pour over the top of an 8X8 baking dish of fruit and at 350 degrees you will have a “crisp” in about 40-45 minutes. Keep cookin’ and Bon Appetit!
