Tiger Lacey’s Celebration of Life

The Community of La Pine turned out in a big way in support of the Celebration for Life honoring Pro-MotoCross Rider Tiger Lacey. 300+ friends of Tiger and riders from Hawaii, California, Washington and Oregon travelled to join in remembering Tiger. Pepsi donated drinks, Smart Shop donated Burgers and Hot Dogs

By Chuck & Toni Lynde It was a very cold day on Jan. 4, 2014, but the sun was very warm along with warm hearts of around 300 people to pay tribute to their friend and loved one pro-motocross rider Tiger Lacey, age 31. They said that Rosland ATV Riding Area in La Pine, OR has never had that many people or riders at one time…close to 300 including around 70 riders.Pro-racers like Ryan Huffman from Washougal, WA and Kevin Rookstool from Oregon were there along with many others he raced with throughout his career. It looked like a moving rainbow of many colors as the riders rode, jumped, did wheelies and skimmed across the top of the woops.

and area residents contributed money, food and generators to make the event memorable. Ken Steward and The Mad Clown Society BBQ’d for everyone as friends took turns riding Tiger’s racing bike. The event went far into the evening with friends swapping stories and memories around a bonfire. – Dan Varcoe

And don’t forget about the sounds of the motors! It can’t get any better than that. Everything quieted down as Audleigh Hickman officiated the ceremony and family members, choking back their tears, spoke about their life with Tiger. Dana, Tiger’s wife, spoke last and tried to cheer up everyone. She said Tiger left her with the most beautiful gift of all, their baby boy Lynx. The highlight of the day was when Dana had all the bikes line up on top of a hill. She and family grouped in front. Cameras were clicking like crazy. Then she asked them to start in single file, riding the track in honor of See Tiger Lacey Page A-4

La Pine Rodeo Association Newberry Habitat Thrilled with Homeowner Applicants By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter Crowns Nicolette Chapman as At the recent seminar held at the JCJ building in Mid-January, it was a packed house. People from the area were there to find out what it would take to qualify for the Habitat for Humanity Homeowner’s program. During the evening the attendees learned about what it would take to qualify for the initial step of achieving the American dream and then experts discussed the financial aspect, the timeline, the sweat equity program and the possibilities. Then the crowd had a chance to get information ‘from the horse’s mouth’ when La Pine Habitat homeowners stood up in front of the gathering and told their own stories of overcoming challenges, meeting require-

ments, attending the needed classes and working to build their own new homes. They also explained that they were involved in the decision making process when it came to choosing colors, materials, appliances and flooring for their new homes. Newberry Habitat has received many applications and they are creating a pool of possible candidates right now. It will be the first time where they can go to donors and say “We have lots of qualified people who need a home and we want to build even more homes in the future.” Newberry Habitat has built 22 homes in the La Pine area during the last few years. Many local Habitat Homeowners have continued to pay

2014 Rodeo Queen

The La Pine Rodeo Association held a coronation for their new Queen, Nikki Chapman, at the American Legion on Saturday night the 1st of February. Nicolette was supported by Central Oregon Rodeo queens, her family and close to 100 of her local supporters that bought tickets to Kim Russell’s Tri Tip Dinner to help raise Nikki’s funds for the season. The Dessert Auction, held following the dinner was a second way to raise a few dollars! During the next few months, Nicolette will be a visible part of our community, appearing at all kinds of local events and making the La Pine Rodeo part of our daily speech. There was also a silent auction to raise money for the Rodeo Queen. This perky little Rodeo Gal has already been wowing the community with her exuberance and great personality, but on her coronation night she showed up dressed like a real Rodeo Queen, too! Wearing the full length, two piece leather riding dress in red leather with red and black fringe and silver details, topped off with a black hat to match made Nicolette look like royalty. When the Crown was passed from last year’s queen to Nikki’s hat, making it official, she thanked all of her guests and said she was ready to work to promote La Pine across the state. She will appear at the Sister’s Rodeo, Jefferson, Deschutes and Crook County, here in our area, and will be pivotal in our La Pine Rodeo and Frontier Days Celebrations this summer. Congratulations to the La Pine Rodeo Association for our new Queen Nikki.

Noxious? Commentary by John Huddle City of La Pine “The people’s government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people … We are all agents of the same supreme power, the people” (Daniel Webster, 1830). Have we forgotten those eloquent words? The County Weed Board asked the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners, or BOCC, to adopt a noxious weed ordinance by emergency clause, cutting off normal public comment. While the BOCC voted to extend the public comment period by 7 days, essential problems remain. Weeds aren’t the only thing that’s “noxious.” Is our government of the people with people the supreme power, or do we have a benevolent and all-wise government without the people’s voice? Being answerable to the people means soliciting and respecting public comment before passing ordinances. This ordinance wants to declare an emergency, going around the normal public comment process. At the last hearing, county staff stated that the BOCC need not hold a public hearing under the emergency clause, as if holding a public hearing was a favor. The County Weed Board argued they needed the emergency clause to allow the weed inspector time to address noncompliant landowners before the weeds went to seed. This was a request out of convenience, due to a lack of planning, not an emergency. People have a right to be heard; it is un-American to silence their voice. Government, including volunteer boards, must never operate mysteriously. Testimony from the Weed Board and their supporters indicated they were tired of noncompliance; they

wanted “teeth” to force compliance. We don’t really know who’s on the weed board because the county doesn’t publicize their names, what they do or who they represent. My only source was to take the names of weed board members who attended their last meeting and do an Internet search; it appears that all but one or two represent federal, state, local government or environmentalists. Public buy-in comes from public involvement; interestedly, no ranchers or farmers seemed to be on the board. Perhaps that’s why the ordinance calls for pressure washing haying equipment, a ridiculous and harmful mandate. This county needs to appoint a Weed Board that represents all of us, with representation from each county region, then perhaps we can obtain buy-in. An informed people are an engaged people. We in South Deschutes County receive little information from our county government, often learning of county legislation, like this ordinance, by word-of-mouth. Other counties have procedures where citizens can sign up for emailed notices of meetings and agendas. Reportedly, our county has declared themselves “too poor” to establish such an email alert system. They want to direct us to their their website, where one becomes lost in the abundance of information. We need a county that makes it a priority to inform the people with the best tools available. Simply directing people to the website is unacceptable.

La Pine City Council Passes Ordinances The La Pine City Council approved three new ordinances at the meeting held on February 12, 2014. The first is a new Business License Ordinance (Ordinance No. 2014-02) that will ensure that every business operating within the city will comply with federal, state, and local laws, rules, and ordinances. The city believes that this rule is necessary to protect public health and safety as well as to obtain information essential for first responders, planning and building personnel, and economic development initiatives. It will be a source of revenue that was previously unavailable to the City as well. Effective July 1, 2014, any person who establishes, maintains, engages, or conducts a business within the City limits must apply for and obtain a license and pay the prescribed fee. This requirement extends to local businesses and businesses based outside of La Pine who do business inside the city. For example, Franz Bakery does not have a bakery, office, or distribution center within La Pine. Franz Bakery does, however, deliver and sell baked goods to a number of establishments within the city limits. Therefore, this new ordinance would require the company to obtain a business license. The City has established two types of licenses: a Year-Round Business License and a Temporary Business License. A Temporary Business is defined as a business that is operated within the City for less than 30 days and is operated solely on private property. Any business that does not meet both of these requirements is considered a Year-Round Business. There are some exceptions defined within the ordinance. Non-profit organizations must obtain a license but are not required to pay the License Fee. There are some categories of businesses that do not have to obtain a license. Examples of exempt businesses are: • Religious institutions and governmental agencies, • Businesses that are exempt by federal or state law or regulations, • Newspaper carriers, • Garage sales, unless conducted more than 5 times within a calendar year, and • Organizers or participants in a specific Community Event. The License Fees were established following input from the La Pine Chamber of Commerce as: Year –Round Business License $45.00 Temporary Business License $25.00 Change Fee $15.00 Although this ordinance does not take effect until July 1, 2014, the City is encouraging busi-

nesses to begin submitting applications in April, May, or June. Applications can be submitted online via the La Pine City website, The second new ordinance adopted by the La Pine City Council is a Nuisance Ordinance (Ordinance No. 2014-03) intended to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the public. Existing buildings, structures, and premises must provide a minimum level of maintenance and repair as determined by the City. While the ordinance contains detailed descriptions of the conditions that are of concern, in general terms, the ordinance is designed to control and/or eliminate: • Outdoor storage of derelict, dismantled, or wrecked motor vehicles • Noxious vegetation • Outdoor storage of discarded or unusable appliances, furniture, or indoor fixtures • Deterioration of exterior buildings or structures • Pest infestation • Accumulation of garbage, rubbish, and solid waste • Physical conditions, such as abandoned wells or machinery, that are an Attractive Nuisance The application of this ordinance will be complaint driven. Any person will be able to file a complaint alleging a public nuisance after the effective date of March 14, 2014 by going to the City website, Each complaint will be investigated by the City Health Officer or City Designee, and if there are reasonable grounds to believe that a violation has occurred, a notice will be served on the Owner(s) or Occupant(s). The ordinance contains procedures for hearings, appeals, reconsideration, an abatement process, and penalties/fees. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the La Pine Interim City manager, Rick Allen, at 541536-1462 or via email at Ordinance No. 2014-01 was also approved at the February 12th meeting. This ordinance was necessary as a previous agreement had expired. It continues the right of California Oregon Broadcasting, Inc. (Crestview TV) to operate a cable system within the city of La Pine and establishes the franchise fee. It is clear that La Pine, Oregon’s newest city, is growing and maturing. The City Council meets twice monthly on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in City Hall, 16345 Sixth Street, La Pine. These meetings are open to the public. Look for more city news in every issue of the Newberry Eagle.

Ford Institute - Training La Pine Youth to Be Leaders By Ellen Currie, Eagle Reporter This is an exceptional year for the Ford Leadership Training in La Pine. While the participants in the previous three Cohorts have been enthusiastic, diverse, and committed, Cohort 4 is special because of the number of young people involved in the program. The 2013-14 Cohort includes 5 teenagers from our community: Mallory Aamodt, Lindsey Davee, Mike DeBone, Conrad Parker, and Savannah Puckett. These 5 young people are giving up weekends for training and evenings for subcommittee work instead of playing video games, texting, hunting, or doing the many other things that usually engage teenagers. Why? It is interesting that these students were motivated to participate in the Leadership training by their mothers. It is not surprising, but it is encouraging, that moms continue to have a positive influence on the development of their children. They play an essential part in developing strong leaders with good values. However, it is also amazing that these young

people discovered that they could have fun learning new skills and interacting with people of all ages and from different backgrounds. While it is tough to give up your personal time, once they get into the sessions, they really have a good time. Conrad Parker, who is also the student member on the La Pine City Council, says that he really likes the ability to talk about new ideas and to be treated as an equal member of the group. While all of the teenage participants are active in sports, and are successful students, they are learning to communicate effectively with individuals outside of school setting and their peer group. Everyone gets to brainstorm and contribute suggestions without being judged or discounted. All of the participants are learning skills that will help them work with others in collaborative and inclusive ways, ways that encourage problemsolving and innovation whether young or old or somewhere in between. We applaud these young people for taking part in this training program. They are truly the Leaders for our future.

Deschutes County Road Plowing What is the Process? Submitted by Deschutes County, Anna Johnson The Deschutes County Road Department is responsible for the maintenance of more than 900 miles of roads. This does not include roads within your city limits. During a County-wide snowstorm, there is in excess of 1,800 lane miles that County crews need to clear of snow in order to maintain traffic flow. Deschutes County road crews first work to plow and clear arterial and collector roads (major roads that connect a County maintained road to a state highway) as quickly as possible to ensure the movement of potential emergency vehicles. Next, County road crews sand arterials and collectors, and intersections of roadways where vehicles need to stop; horizontal curves, roads with grades exceeding 10 percent, and bridges. Local roads and subdivision roads (these are County maintained roads in a subdivision that connect to arterial or collector roads) that are County maintained, are plowed next. These roads are the most time-consuming and most difficult due to many obstacles that usually exist along the roadside (garbage cans, cars, etc.). Due to limited money and staffing, County road crews are not able to remove driveway berms after plowing is complete. For more information about Deschutes County road maintenance<>, please call (541) 388-6581.

Tiger Lacey’s Celebration of Life


Continued from front page

Excert from Audleigh Hickman, Minister Officiating Celebration of Tiger Lacey’s Life I want to say that this is a celebration of life for Tiger Lacey and U I LT T O A H I G H E R S TA N D A R D what that means is hisBfamily, Dana and Lynx hope that you believe the same thing they do and that we are celebrating that he is in heaven with Chad and all the other loved ones we have lost. Real fast, how do we know Tiger is in heaven? Because God is not a religion He is a relationship. and if you ask Dana she will tell you that Tiger prayed with B U I LT T O A H I G H E R S TA N D A R D



his family every night before bed. If you ask me and everyone here, if you talk to someone every night before you go to bed… that is a relationship! All God wants is to have a relationship with you. For you to open your heart to him so he can be there for you! If we do that we will have someone that is there for us when no one else is. After reading posts about Tiger, one thing in particular stood out. Almost everyone mentioned something about him being a hero or someone they looked up to. One person mentioned Tiger using his winning funds to help her son enter a race, which motivated him to continue his career in racing. This is just another story to exemplify the Tiger that we all knew. When Tiger entered a race his main goal was to win the trophy at the end. Tiger won his ultimate trophy when he met Dana. She was his trophy, what he strived to achieve. He did what he loved and was always supported, wholeheartedly by his wife. We all know, his biggest fans and his biggest stars will always be his son Lynx and wife Dana Lacey.

Spaghetti Feed Sponsors Youth Activities all Year By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

La Pine Park & Recreation District NOW OPEN

A Community School Program Neither rain nor sleet nor … snow will stop the supporters of the Holy Redeemer Spaghetti Feed. After two days of bad storms moving through the area and an accumulation of between 12-18 inches building up on the ground, loyal area residents braved the ice and snow to show up for a visit with their friends and enjoy a plate of the legendary spaghetti in support of their youth programs at the church! Tickets went on sale in Janu-

ary and they sold quite a few, but Saturday night did prove difficult for the out of towners that usually come in from Bend and the surrounding areas.(I had a half dozen friends that were stuck in airports or other destinations and they could not come.) I spent the evening in the company of lots of people that I know well and everyone had a great time! The young servers are members of the after school youth

group and they begin to help out as soon as they can see over the tables. They dress in white shirts and black pants with little bow ties and become very professional at their jobs. Many public officials serve the wine and some of the moms organize the seating and the training of the kids. It is all well done. Next year be sure to look for a $6.00 ticket per person and come and enjoy one of La Pine’s very special events!

School Exclusion Day is Wednesday, February 19

Schools and child care facilities need children’s current immunization records Submitted by Deschutes County The Deschutes County Health Services Department wants to remind parents that children will not be able to attend school or child care starting Wednesday, February 19 if their records on file show missing immunizations. State law requires that all children in public and private schools, preschools, Head Start, and certified child care facilities, have up-to-date documentation on their immunizations, or have a religious or medical exemption. Information for parents about updated vaccine requirements: 1. Parents of adolescents should be aware that one dose of Tdap vaccine is required for seventh- through 12th-graders. Tdap is a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) booster. 2. The hepatitis A vaccine, which protects against a communicable viral infection, is a twodose series required for children 18 months and older in child care, preschool and kindergarten through fifth grade.

If school and child care vaccination records are not up-todate, the child will be sent home on February 19. In 2013, Deschutes County Health Services sent 1,023 letters to parents and guardians informing them that their children needed immunizations to stay in school or child care. Many children get letters because their school or day care records are not updated, even though they may have all of their shots. It is important for parents to update their child’s immunization record at school or child care after every shot. Don’t delay! Parents seeking immunizations for their children should contact their health care provider or call Deschutes County Health Services (DCHS) at (541) 322-7400 to make an appointment at one of the County’s clinics. No child will be turned away due to the inability to pay for required vaccines. Pharmacists can also immunize children age 11 and older. Contact your neighborhood pharmacy for details.

The fifth grade students from La Pine (both elementary schools) will be going to Outdoor School at Camp Tamarack in April for 3 days thanks to several Foundations that worked closely with Ms. Doty, from La Pine Elementary and Mrs. Williams to help cover the student’s cost. We would like to thank Deschutes Children’s Forest for covering the transportation for both schools. Carly’s Kids, ON Belay TY, Silver Family Foundation and Gray Family Foundation for kicking in over $9000 to help bring the cost down for our families. There are countless benefits to exposing children to the environment in the elementary and secondary years, including an increased focus, a more vivid imagination, better scores, and a friendlier disposition. Camp Tamarack has an excellent curriculum to help our fifth grade class experience these benefits.

Three Rivers

Message from Gayle Vidal, Principal at Three Rivers Regarding her Retirement - It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that I tell you I will retire as Principal of Three Rivers School at the end of this school year. Deciding when to retire has been difficult because I love my work at Three Rivers and my association with all the wonderful district, parent and community groups and individuals who help make this a great place for our children. Over the past ten years, I have proudly watched our children enter school as eager kindergartners who learned, grew and accomplished great things here and out in the world beyond. Posted in the front hallway is a partial listing of all the honors and awards their achievements have brought our school and that was just in 2013! These past years, working together, our school community refined its dreams for a middle school and built it! This year we will complete planning for an expanded music teaching and performance area in Otter Hall and build it over the summer. I think our completed school structure is the most beautiful and most functional school building imaginable. But a structure is just bricks and mortar. It is the people, inside and out, that make a school vibrant. Our school staff is second to none in every department. Their dedication to the positive growth and wellbeing of our students is extraordinary. I am honored to work beside each and every one of them. Our PTA is one of the most positive, proactive and productive groups around. Our community volunteers and organizations are “all in” for our children, giving of time, money and expertise on a regular basis. It is no wonder it is difficult to leave! But it is time. Ahead are new beginnings and new direction – for our children, for our school community and for me. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to be principal at Three Rivers School. Every day has been an adventure. I look forward to the rest of the year with keen enthusiasm. Thank you for your support and for your friendship. Gayle Vidal, Principal HIGH SCHOOL ORIENTATION - Time for 8th graders to start familiarizing themselves with High School. Bend High’s Orientation will be in their auditorium on Monday, February 10th, 7:00 pm. Parents and 8th graders planning to attend Bend High next year are invited to attend. The informational meeting is hosted by Bend High administrators and counselors. Items discussed include: general information, scheduling for classes, activities and opportunities at BSHS, tour of the school, questions & answers. Coaches and advisors for various clubs at Bend High will

also be available to meet with students. Families and students wanting to learn more about the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program are invited to attend an earlier information session at 6:00 pm in the BSHS Auditorium. BUILDING UPDATE - Planning has begun to upgrade the stage area of Otter Hall, remodeling it into a band/choir/ music classroom and extended performance area. Architect Mike Gorman of BLRB is working with district officials and Three Rivers staff to create a wonderful new space. Funding was included in last year’s successful bond levy. We are scheduled for completion this summer! The Three Rivers PTA is hard at work planning for this year’s Spring Round Up. This annual fundraiser represents their biggest fundraiser of the year and takes an enormous amount of effort. Some incredible donations are being gathered and these will be auctioned off in both silent and oral auctions on Saturday, April 12th at SHARC. The event starts at 5:00 pm and is great fun tickets are $15.00. You can contact our PTA at by phone at 541 355 3005, via their website at or on Facebook - https://www.facebook. com/threerivers.pta

La Pine Middle School

Note from Mr. Boen- Principal at La Pine Middle School As I’m sure you are aware, both our state and federal governments have rules and standards regarding a child’s attendance in school. Obviously kids are required to receive an education and I’m thankful for the nearly 300 current students attending La Pine Middle School that I have the opportunity to know and work with in this capacity. Students learn more when they are present to receive the instruction first-hand. When students work collaboratively and are engaged within the classroom then deeper, richer learning can occur. Therefore, schools are held to at least a 92% attendance rate for all students over the course of an academic year. For the past handful of years LPMS has been able to stay just above this standard. – until last school year. As recently as three years ago we only had one month during the year when our attendance fell below 92%. Last year we had six months where our attendance was below that same threshold. Below are some statistics through this same time last school year: • We have had attendance at or above 92% on every day of the week only four times this year (two of the four weeks were the first two weeks of the school year); • Monday (91.9%) and Friday (88.34%) are our two lowest days for attendance; • Tuesday (92.97%) and Thursday (92.72%) are our two most attended days; • During the week of October 1st our average daily attendance was 90.85%; • During the week of January 14th our averaging daily attendance was 84.93%; I fully understand that students will miss some days of school for a variety of reasons. The opening of hunting season (Oct.1, 2012) and whenever the cold/ flu season hits (Jan. 14, 2013) are often the times of the year that our attendance is at its lowest. Understanding that we will likely drop below 92% during these times of the year it is imperative that other times reflect a higher average attendance. Our overall attendance rate for last year ended at 91.4% - thus narrowly missing the mark. Knowing that our overall school rating is partially based on whether we meet the required 92% daily attendance rate for the entire school year I ask that you join me in an effort to have your child come to school unless they are too ill to attend, there is a family emergency, or the absence is pre-arranged. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding attendance in general, or your own student’s attendance specifically. This year we have incorporated some incentives (class competitions for best attendance first period) and friendly reminders (letters of encouragement for students just under 92% daily attendance) among other initiatives. Thank you in advance for your help in getting your child to school; it is greatly appreciated! Jim Boen, Principal

La Pine High School

*La Pine High School’s Hospitality, Tourism & Recreation program is new this year. Mr. Parnell was certified this last summer in order to teach these courses. In early February, Mr. Scanlon from Sunriver Resort will be at LPHS teaching ‘Pillars Customer Service Training & Certification’. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn the exact requirements for employment at a recreational resort. This term, there are 16 students participating in this program. *FBLA has their Cascade Regional Competition at Ridgeview High in Redmond on February 10th and their State Competition in Portland on April 10th. *Two students from La Pine High School earned Silver Key Awards for their art at the Regional level competition. Here’s a website that tells a little about the contest: The two students were: Skylar Miller (senior) for Design (a work entitled All for One) and Leanna Hall (junior) for her photo entitiled “Big Fish.” There were 698 pieces submitted, 76 were chosen as Gold Key winners, 80 Silver Key winners, and 5 American Vision nominees. The show is at COCC’s Pickney Center until February 13th. After that, students who entered but were not chosen for these awards will have their works on display for the following two weeks. If you have any other questions, let Mrs. Parker at the high school know.


New Seating Area

La Pine Middle School library would like to thank The Sunriver Rotary Club for the generous donation of $1500 for new library books. Our students love the new books and are always asking to checkout the latest new releases. Thanks to the Sunriver rotary Club, we will be able to offer an even greater selection of books for our students to choose from. Our library was in desperate need of some new furniture but we had very little money to spend o it. Rolando at La Pine’s ReStore generously donated two beautiful upholstered chairs for our sitting area. To complete the area, Sophie at Bend’s Restore donated a beautiful coffee table. This new sitting area (above photos) has quickly become our most popular spot for reading and hanging out.

March brings two powerhouse author events to Sunriver Books & Music. Join us for entertaining events on a couple books we highly recommend. Saturday March 15th at 5:00 PM Willy Vlautin will give a presentation on The Free, I believe it is his best book. People living on the margins, on the knife edge of life tend to be the subjects of Willy Vlautin’s novels. He gives them a clear, strong voice, inviting the reader to walk for a few well written pages in the other person’s shoes. Vlautin treats these characters with compassion and respect. You can’t go through a Willy Vlautin story without at least a few “there but for the grace” moments where you see the slippery slope that claimed the characters was steep and hard to avoid. Freddie had a good life going, a mortgage free home he inherited, a marriage and two daughters, then that slope got him and now he is deep in debt, not keeping his head above water, working his day job at the hardware store and a night job as care taker at a group home. Leroy did what a lot of young men do, answered his country’s call for soldiers. The Middle East changed everything, now he lives in a group home a galaxy away from everyday reality, lost to his loved ones. Pauline works hard as a nurse, she has a deep reservoir of compassion she keeps veiled by a curtain of reserve, a young girl struggling with life on the streets and drug addiction tugs at her heart. Their stories will converge and as they do Vlautin skillfully intertwines a greater truth. The reader will care for these characters, admire their pluck, and wish them a safe harbor. Vlautin’s earlier novel, Motel Life, Set in Reno, tells the story of two brothers, Frank and Jerry Lee, who live in cheap

motels until a tragic, drunk driving, accident puts them on the run. Their belongings are meager, their claim on life tenuous. The story has been made into a well-regarded movie starring Kris Kristofferson, Emile Hirsch, and Dakota Fanning. Lean on Pete, won big at the Oregon Book Awards, winning both the Ken Kesey Award and the Reader’s Choice Award. It is set mostly in Oregon and tells of a lonely teenager, Charley, who moves with his Dad from Spokane to a rental house in the Delta Park neighborhood of Portland and takes a part time job from an unsavory trainer at the race track. His only friend is Pete, a race horse on his last legs, treated poorly by Charley’s boss. P0-The boy and the horse run away, but the world is not kind to run away teenagers and erstwhile, over the hill, race horses. Vlautin is multi-talented, he is also lead singer and songwriter for Richmond Fontaine, their music has the same haunting quality found in Vlautin’s stories. Northline, an earlier novel about a woman, the choices she made, and the future she fights to hold onto, includes a CD by Richmond Fontaine. Phillip Margolin will be here Saturday March 29th at 5:00 PM. He is a New York Times bestselling author many times over. If you enjoy the mystery genre, his name is well known. His contemporary mysteries, always a hit, include Sleight of Hand, Capitol Murder, Lost Lake, Gone But Not Forgotten, and many others. Margolin brings to bear years of experience as a Portland Oregon attorney who has argued before the US Supreme Court and as a defense attorney in death penalty cases. Often his books are inspired by real events. This is very true of his latest novel, Worthy Brown’s Daughter. Though this novel is a huge departure for Margolin, and some of his best writing. Worthy Brown’s Daughter is a fictional account of the groundbreaking case, Robin Holmes vs Nathaniel Ford Former slave Robin Holmes sought justice in the white man’s court, suing a prominent member of the community, Nathaniel Ford, seeking the release of Holmes’ children. It must have been very hard, not to mention frightening, for a black man to step into the white man’s court in pre-civil war days. Margolin uses Holmes as the inspiration for Worthy Brown, a man whose former mas-

ter is a successful, charismatic attorney keeping Worthy’ Brown’s daughter in bondage. He is also lacking in any sense of morality, casually cruel, and may pose a danger to the teenage girl. Worthy Brown, worried about his child, takes his case to Matthew Penny, an attorney arrived via the Oregon Trail, a journey that cost the life of Penny’s beloved wife. There is lots of great historical detail about Oregon along with a compelling entertaining story full of fascinating characters. With his background as an attorney and his string of New York Times bestsellers, Margolin is ideally suited to tell this story, giving the reader a real view of the legal difficulties and climate of the time, while also giving it suspense and drama. He throws in a woman of dubious virtue, a judge who makes a poor choice that have dire repercussions, and a variety of interesting threads. Margolin brings it all together giving the reader Oregon history along with a satisfying stroy. While Margolin’s thrillers are great entertainment, Worthy Brown’s Daughter shows this author has a lot more to say! Margolin is a great speaker, his events are always interesting. If you would like to read a non-fiction book of Holmes vs Ford, Breaking Chains by Greg Nokes is a well-researched and complete account. The two books make excellent companion pieces. Author events are a perfect way to spend an evening. We will have refreshments and drawings for prizes. Please call 541593-2525, e-mail or stop by to sign up to attend. The events are free and lots of fun.

Spell Away! By Lauren James

Security retirement is 62. The payment amount will be reduced and there are limits on your work income. It makes sense if you need the income. And it can be part of an early retirement strategy if you can get a higher widow’s payment at 66. Note that while you’re under 66, you can earn $15,480 with no reduction in your Social Security. Earnings over $15,480 will cause some of your Social Security to be withheld. Age 65. Everyone turning 65 should contact SSA to ask about Medicare. You must get this right—you can be penalized for filing for Medicare too late or too early. Call or visit SSA 2-3 months before your birth month. Age 66. This is your Social Security “Full Retirement Age.” You can work and draw Social Security at the same time, with no Social Security penalty, starting with your birthday month. In the months before your birthday month, you can earn much more money the year you turn 66. The threshold for no reduction is $41,400, and only earnings before your birthday month count toward that. You can take spouse-only payments and hold your own payments in reserve. It’s called the “Restricted Application” strategy. Age 70. Your Social Security will grow no higher for ages past 70. Take your Social Security this year if you haven’t already. And if you were getting spouse-only payments, it’s time to switch to your own Social Security. Be sure to check with SSA for details if any of these affect you. And as always, keep on planning FOOTNOTE: The website is the authoritative source for 79 million baby boomers looking to retire. The site offers indepth state and city profiles, retirement community reviews, and explores the financial, cultural, and emotional aspects of retirement.

When we last saw Zoe, she and Lexi paid a visit to the principal to talk about the spelling bee: I burst into tears and ran away. I had no idea that behind me Lexi was smiling and in her head she said ‘phase one completed’. When it was lunchtime Lexi and I went down to the principal’s office. Of course Lexi was there before me with her lunch tray, all pink and sparkly, in front of her with the flashcards next to her tray. “You’re late! See, just what I told you earlier,” Mr. Hallaway said. “So irresponsible.” I thought for a moment but I couldn’t think any longer because Lexi kept going on. “Zoe, you were supposed to be here at exactly 11:30, instead you were here at 11:33. Mr. Hallaway, it really is very irresponsible of her isn’t it?” Lexi said. “Hmmm. Maybe she shouldn’t do the spelling bee anymore! Oh, it would be tragic but, Mr. Hallaway cut her off.” I was only 3 minutes late. I had a logical explanation, but, I was frozen. I asked myself, “Why was I late in the first place?” “Oh, um, I was in art class before lunch and actually Mrs. Frazee got kind of mad at us so she made all of us stay after class. Class was over at exactly 11:25 but Mrs. Frazee had us stay until 11:30 so that we would be last in the lunch line. So it was 11:33 by the time I got my lunch, walked down here and came in to sit and practice.” Lexi made a big O out of her face. We started our practice for the spelling bee then Mr. Hallaway said we could go to our next class. He already had e-mailed our teachers and said we would be about 5-10 minutes late.

Social Security Is Changing This Year – Be Aware! By Andy Landis, RetireUSA

Introducing our new challenge program SHREDDIN’!

Mon-Fri 8:00 am 4:00 pm LIC# 36217P


RetireUSA Featured Blogger Andy Landis is a Certified Life Options Retirement Coach and expert on Social Security and Medicare. His book: “Social Security, The Inside Story,” is recognized as one of the best books on the topic. Visit for videos and more.

Social Security will be seeing a variety of changes and opportunities this year, especially if you have a “Magic Birthday” in 2014. Here’s what you need to be aware off. Are you getting Social Security now? Everyone on Social Security got a 1.5% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) last month (January). Every year Social Security gets a raise exactly equal to inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Last year inflation was 1.5% so your payment goes up that much. The idea is that Social Security will always have the same buying power, no matter how long you live. Are you on Medicare? Medicare premiums are not going up! They’ll stay the same $104.90 for most people. High-income retirees pay more than that, but their payments will also be the same as 2013. Do you have high work income? The Social Security taxable earnings ceiling rises to $117,000 this year. That means that if you earn over the ceiling, you’ll pay Social Security taxes on the first $117,000. That’s up from $113,700 in 2013. Worried about Social Security solvency? We’re one year closer to the year Social Security will have a financial shortfall—2033. Not a crisis, but it’s getting closer. Are you facing one of these Magic Birthdays? If you are reaching one of these birthdays this year you might want to contact Social Security. Age 60. If you are a widow or widower, you can draw Social Security from your deceased spouse or former spouse. At 60 the payments will be reduced, and there are limits on your work income. If you have your own Social Security work record, taking a widow’s payment early can be part of an early retirement strategy. Age 62. Your first eligibility for Social

last practice we would have to skip the next class and just go to one after that. This is going to bring quite a change to my life. Lexi got out her phone. No one knew that she had texted a secret message: ‘So far all is going to plan. And by the way I am so going to beat her with our plan! LOL!!! ;)’ Penny’s phone vibrated. She got the message! Penny texted back: I like oranges. Sometimes I wonder if there is a reason for Penny to have a cell phone. I was already in art class when Lexi walked into the art room. “You’re late.” I said with a smirk on my face. She mouthed the words back in a teasing way. Mrs. Jones taught us how to write a Haiku poem with a nice illustration to go with it. In the meantime I was sitting in my seat thinking. I was thinking about how it all played out in the principal’s office. Sometimes it just goes to show you, you can always look back. That night when I got home mom asked me a whole bunch of questions about how things went in the office this morning. I decided not to tell her about how Lexi tried to get me in trouble. I told my mom everything except for the long lecture from Lexi about not being late for things. When Lexi got home that night, right when she opened the door she heard her mom yell, “Well, now Lexi is going to eat the worst meal of her life.” Lexi kept the door cracked and listened to her mom and dad fight. Her dad said, “Well, just because Lexi is going to be late doesn’t mean we have to fight before she gets home.” Her mom said, “We can’t fight in front of her! She would burst into tears and you know what would happen if she was going to do that!” Her dad said, “No, I don’t know what she does when she cries because guess what, I am not living here anymore!” Lexi bit her bottom lip. She got out her phone and texted Penny: ‘They’re at it again. They never seem to stop. They think they are hiding their fighting but really they aren’t even close to that. I wish I could just disappear!’

Lexi looked at her phone again and saw a text from Zoe: ‘Lexi, you want to come over and study? Plllleeeeese , my mom is eager to meet you.’ Lexi texted her back: ‘Sure. I have nothing better to do.’ Lexi texted her mom: ‘I am heading over to Zoe Duncan’s house for a study session. I will be home by 6:30.’ Lexi put her phone in her pocket and walked 3 blocks to Zoe’s house. As soon as she knocked on Zoe’s front door her phone vibrated. Zoe answered the door. “Hey, come on in, make yourself at home.” Lexi said, “I’ll be in in a minute, my mom is texting me.” Zoe said, “Oh, Okay, you can answer that and then come on in.” Lexi checked her phone. It said: ‘Lexi, can you see if by any chance you could have dinner with them. Your father and I need some alone time.’ That was it! This was the text/call that she had been waiting for since the day she first heard her mom yell at her dad when she was 9. Dad came into her room, “ Hey there Lex. How is that spelling coming along?” Lexi looked at him with a, youknow-I-can-tell-something-isgoing-on look. “All right, you got me,” her dad said. “I’m not really here to help you study. I just want you to know that your mom is kind of on edge right now so please give her a break.” Lexi nodded and motioned for him to get out. She heard her mom yell at her dad saying, “Hey, get out here and help me make dinner. What are you doing, having a tea party in there?” Lexi went inside. She saw Zoe’s family, a lady who looked young- maybe 30 to 35 years old who was holding a little boy and at the table a young man and a little girl who looked like she was 4 or 5. Zoe introduced Lexi to her family. Mom and Dad and the little boy was Hank but they called him Handsome. The little girl was Zoe’s little sister, Lorie, but they called her Lore. The rest of their studying went perfectly. Zoe and Lexi made a decision together. They quit the spelling bee. From that evening on they became great friends.

By T. Myers Eagle Reporter “Yes, Father, I did chop down that cherry tree,” Washington’s Birthday on the 22nd, and on Lincoln’s George told his father. And so began the legend Birthday I would do little Black Forest cupcakes of honesty that was taught to every American because it was two days before Valentine’s Day and school child in order to prove the worth of our first what is better than Cherries? Cherries and Chocolate of course. We did celebrate a Presidents’ Day weekend then, but schools still taught about the lives of Lincoln and Washington on their actual days. Today I go to Costco for one of the big Cherry Pies they bake for a month or so this time of year. The cherries are tart and brilliant in flavor and the crust is always perfect. I could eat the whole thing, so I cut it up, freeze sections and pull a piece out when I am dying for the old fashioned flavor of good cherry pie. Why talk about these things? Presidents’ Day is next weekend and it might be the perfect time to spend with family and friends, creating president and instill the virtue of honesty as one we an old fashioned celebration about Lincoln and hold dear. Now that we celebrate Presidents’ Day Washington like when we were little kids. Have to honor Washington, Lincoln and all of the others, the family decide on a good menu and involve the some of the excitement of getting the little bags of kids in the preparation for the event- especially in sour cherry gumdrops that were sold everywhere decorating the table and surroundings with things has been replaced with Mall Sales and a day off for like silhouette pictures, American red white and a three day weekend.

a meal in one, but don’t overlook having the kids cut up carrot and celery sticks, olives and pickles and plain lettuce wedges topped with American Dressing: ½ cup light olive oil, 1 T ground mustard, ¼ cup fresh lemon juice with the zest added to the bowl, whisk until emulsified and then add a spoon of dill weed, salt and pepper. Drizzle over the wedges at the last minute and serve on a separate little plate during the main event. I love Bisquick for biscuits. Make them with half milk and half heavy cream and the result will be a tender bite of heaven. Add fresh butter and your favorite red jam and you will make everyone happy. For the pot roast I use 1 turnip, 1 rutabaga, 2 parsnips, carrots, celery, onions and potatoes. Cut them after the cooking process and let that be part of the service at the table. The roast you choose needs to be flaky tender and the juices turned into a sauce or gravy to pour over the whole lot! I always cook my American pot roasts with salt and pepper and put a few seasoning salts on the table if people want a different flavor option. The truth is that there were seldom any seasonings added unless they were fresh or dried herbs. Salt was a luxury and pepper was commonly used in the hot months to preserve foods. People with access to salt for things like salt pork, etc. washed their foods off carefully to reduce salt. Potatoes were used to do the same. Follow your recipe on your slow cooker to get your meal ready by dinner time and take the time you save to make a great cherry dessert. I buy Oregon brand dark cherries, but recently found some others that I am trying out this year.

I will make a chocolate cake recipe out of a box (the only other thing out of a box that I use besides Bisquick) and put the batter into Giant muffin cups for a larger dessert. Bake and cool. Make a chocolate pudding- yes you can use the cooked variety, but instant can work if you only have the one kind. On the Cornstarch box, there are always good pudding recipes for homemade pudding and I use those. So now, you have 2+ cups of chocolate pudding. Cool and hold for assembly. Drain the juice from your cherries and measure it. Add 2 T fresh lemon juice for sparkle and reserve 2 T for the cornstarch thickener. Heat the juice in a sauce pan and add the reserved cherries. Taste for sweetness. If you need to add a little sugar add 1 T at a time. Bring to a boil and add the slurry of cornstarch and reserved juice to thicken. 1T thickens 1 cup of liquid to a reasonable sauce. Cool and get ready to assemble. 6 OZ bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, ¼ cup butter and ½ cup cream melted in a double boiler will make a great chocolate sauce to pour over everything. Reduce the cream to ¼ cup and add 1 T liquor to make it more to your specific taste. Cool slightly. Take your cupcake (still in the wrapper) and spoon out the center. Fill the hole with pudding and top the cupcake with the cherries and sauce. Keep the little plug to put in the glob of whipped cream. Pour a spoon of chocolate sauce over the top. Add the whipped cream and voila! Black Forest cupcakes that will astound your friends and family. Have a great Presidents Day! Bon Appetit!

Four Chaplains Honored By Joy Kingsbury This story was told by the Mayor, February 6, 2014, at the Oakridge City Council Meeting. Mayor Shorey told about Four Chaplains honored in the month of February for their bravery, faith, and courage. These four men, of varying faiths and ages, met in Chaplains School after enlisting in the US Army and there became fast friends. In 1943, they boarded, along with 902 others, the USAT Dorchester, an old luxury liner converted to a troop ship headed from N.Y. to Greenland. As they neared their destination, they were torpedoed by a German U-Boat. In the chaos, pain, and confusion, the Four Chaplains passed out

life vests, words of comfort, and prayer. When the life vests ran out, they gave away their own. These brave men of faith went down with the ship, arms linked, singing and chanting the “Our Father”, and made this country and their “Father” very proud and always to be remembered and honored. 670 men died that day, February 3, 1943. A survivor told the story and said “It is the finest thing I have ever seen or hope to see this side of heaven.” The Chaplains were Reverend George Fox, Methodist, Rabbi Alexander Goode, Clark Poling, Dutch Reformed Church, and Father John Washington. Congress declared February 3rd to be Four Chaplains Day in 1948.

the area over the years and they always took time to explore the surrounding area and especially to hike the trails, which she continues to do at every opportunity. In addition, Stacy is an animal lover and volunteers time to help at animal shelters whenever possible. Initial thirty minute consultations will be available to all comers at an introductory rate of $15.00. Feel free to contact Stacy for appointments beginning February 14th at 541-636-7736.

Our combined weight was almost 500 pounds and we suffered from a laundry list of physical symptoms including: Type 2 Diabetes Irritable Bowel Syndrome Chronic Eczema Plantar Fasciitis Depression Male Prostate Problems Low Back Pain Sciatica Addictions to alcohol and nicotine After trying many things to lose weight and get well, Celeste prayed and asked God to send her help, “I finally quit asking God to bless what I was doing and began to ask God what HE was blessing.” The answer to that prayer came in the fall of 2005 in the most unlikely place Las Vegas, Nevada, where the Davises met Celeste’s new boss, Dr. Craig Roles from Green Valley Chiropractic. Dr. Roles coached Phil and Celeste through a 21day cleansing program and in those 21-days Phil and Celeste completely eliminated all of their physical problems.
