Sherri McDowell, Oakridge Artist

Dear Oakridge From the interior of an automobile traveling 35 miles an hour down Highway 58, it is hard to know the true essence of a place that is cloaked in such thorny contrasts. But when winding along the back roads and walking the hundreds of miles of trail, the real Oakridge experience is revealed: pristine rivers, magnificent forests, and abundant wildlife that exists side-by-side with broken concrete, empty buildings and abandoned railroad tracks. To know all of the loving, talented, beautifully quirky and creative people who live here is to move beyond the stereotype of “Oakridge the depressed town”. Life in Oakridge brings a new level of health in mind, body and spirit. One by one newcomers are discovering the peace and kinship with the natural world that is so much a part of the joy of living here. We breathe clean air, work, play and fall asleep to the accompaniment of melodious rivers. We watch the osprey dive for fish, and feel the snow level creep down from the mountaintops. Double rainbows arch over the misty canyons, and the bald eagles call to one an-

other high above the ridges. Herds of elk trek back and forth over the hillside pastures. Big leaf maple and stately cottonwoods provide shade and autumnal color spots among the evergreens. Baby salamanders toddle across the path, and mergansers ride the white water down river, then rise, stretch out and wing their way back upstream. Fly fishermen dance a counter rhythm to the currents, and bike riders are a flash between the trees. To move like the water, to smell the rich earth and hear the wind in the trees – this is living as we were meant to live. To be in love with life, that is the secret ingredient in the tonic that is Oakridge. It is exciting to be here now. Residents are looking with their hearts and thinking with open minds, simultaneously earning a living and sharing the best that is here. New businesses are springing up; many that relate directly to recreation and regeneration. It is the beginning of a new golden age: it is your time to shine, Oakridge. Perhaps there has never been a better time to live and dream in this spectacular place. I am yours with gratitude for all that you are, dear Oakridge.

I could not resist including one of the painters in the painting of the bridge. The sunshine and blue sky was a welcome respite from the winter blahs. This bridge spans the North Fork, Willamette River where it flows through the village of Westfir, Oregon.

Sherri McDowell – March 1, 2014 By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter Sherri McDowell is an accomplished artist, writer, photographer and musician, who makes her home in Oakridge, OR. She is one of Oakridge’s most enthusiastic cheerleaders, which you cannot miss when you read her “Dear Oakridge” story that was aired on National Public Radio and is reprinted in this issue of the Eagle Highway Magazine. Sherri grew up in Gilchrist, a small “Company Owned Town” in North Klamath County, about 15 minutes south of La Pine. As a child, Sherri remembers

scribbling on notebook paper as her artistic talent was showing itself. Even her 4th grade teacher could not dampen her artist spirit. (See sidebar story page 5) Her graduating class of ’65 was the largest “Baby Boomer” graduating class at Gilchrist. She went to Linfield College in McMinnville and continued her education at the University of Maryland with degrees in English and Music. She and her husband moved to Anchorage, Alaska, where she worked in the University of Alaska System, Rural See Sherri McDowell page 5

COVER ART By Sherri McDowell COVER PAGE: My Guide, Oil on Canvas – Brilliant sun on a snowy landscape is an exciting subject to paint. On this December day the sun had begun melting the snow in the tree tops on the west bank of Salmon Creek while the east bank remained in the shade. My Australian shepherd dog was out in front, as usual, the snow was crunching under our feet, and the winter birds were flitting from place to place, wondering what had covered up all their seeds. In the background, the river, Salmon Creek, sang its winter song. I drank it in, and in this painting, breathed out the joy of the walk.

It is a familiar landmark to locals. The Middle Fork Willamette River flows through the park, spanned by a lovely footbridge leading to trails along the river and backroads perfect for hiking, biking or fishing. RIGHT: Autumn Salmon Creek, Watercolor and Gouache on Paper Salmon Creek is a pristine little river that begins high in the mountains not far from Oakridge. It flows through the town and into the Middle Fork of the Willamette. Beautiful in all seasons, it is perhaps at the best during the fall. BELOW: A Day at the Park, Watercolor and Gouache on Paper The brilliant summer days bring families to Greenwaters Park, on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River where it flows through Oakridge Oregon. This is what one might see from the footbridge that spans the river. The river vibrates between green and blue, giving the park its name.

Interviewing Sherri McDowell at the Lion Mountain Bakery. L to R: Eagle Distribution Manager Janet Varcoe, Lion Mountain Bakery Owner Jacqui, and Featured Artist Sherri McDowell. Education. That job evolved to that of fiscal coordinator. She later transferred to Anchorage Community College, becoming a Director of Business Services. After 12 years in Alaska, Sherri became homesick for Oregon and took a job at the University of Oregon. During that time she took art classes and began applying herself to drawing, water colors and design. She juggled her job and classes as she pursued a Post-Baccalaurette degree in photography. In late 2003 a rare form of cancer struck Sherri and she was sure “This was the end”. After a year-long battle, she writes, “The beginning was the end… I had miraculously been reunited with the hope of living, and now, with the dream of becoming an artist, of making a life with joy and meaning. It has been a fantastic journey, and one that I long to share.” It was during this time of reflection that she took a workshop in Bend, bought a digital camera and started a business of Wedding Photography. In 2006 she made a decision to be a painter and committed to painting every day. By 2008 she was ready for a show, featuring her work at the Emerald Art Center in Springfield. OREGON by hEART was established as a business in 2008, where Sherri’s artwork is made available. You may view her art at

“You’ll never be an artist…” When a fourth grade teacher looks over her eye glasses and shakes her head, announcing “you’ll never be an artist” then you take that message to your nine-yearold heart, and cease to believe in the dream. But life has a way of bringing those dreams to the forefront again -- sometimes even through catastrophic events. So it was in my case, when illness forced me to retire from an administrative job that did not satisfy my creative soul. If she could see me now, that teacher might be the one ceasing to believe -- in her

own prophecy that is. For I am an artist: I express the meaning of my life through the arts. I create art, art creates me. Most of my work is based on the environment: on a deep connection with the land and the waters that grace it. I am seldom more vibrantly alive than when painting in places that I love, and many of those places are within the state of Oregon. I was born in Oregon and lived here for the majority of my life, growing up in a timber town, Gilchrist. I now live in Oakridge, Oregon, another town on the downside of a lumber boom. – Sherri McDowell

By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter On the banks of the Willamette River, in the foothills of the Cascades, Oakridge is the hub of Oregon’s most extensive cross country mountain bike trail network.

Want to check on trail conditions before going? Just go to and select any trail from a drop down menu. There is good stuff here, but always call the shop for the most current information @ 541-782-1800.

They also enjoy working on old clunkers, commuters, BMX/freestyle, cruisers, unicycles, tandems, and road bikes. They say, ”We pretty much love tooling around with anything that has pedals and wheels. Generally, we have same day turnaround on services like brake bleeds and derailleur adjustments. We occasionally restore vintage bikes and take on special projects. We also work on other sports equipment. No job to big or too small.” And… you may be surprised to know they also rent cross country and back country skis, boots and poles, as well as

“Dad’s Place Deschutes River” You should know that there is a reason for taking you back with me to the beginning -the beginning at the end. Because it might be important, I am going all the way back there to remember and to share some of my story. I offer it in hopes that there are others out there who might be inspired to find their beginning too. Just remember that it really didn’t end, it only seemed that it would. But I didn’t know that at the time. They told me that the cancer appeared to be in my liver and that there is no way to treat it, only to make it less painful. That was in spring of 2004. I’d already known about the tumor in my colon; in response to the radiation, the liquid diet, the chemotherapy the tumor had shrunk. It was now operable, but the doctors were cautious about putting me through the surgery that was planned, because they saw a suspicious spot on the liver scan. March 2, 2004 Panic -- want to run and hide, be protected. May be cancer in my liver. No hope if so. What a mess I’ve made of my life. No good. Help

me -- please oh please. It is hard to be brave with all this grief and loss and fear and regret choking me. To miss seeing Aaron grow up, to miss my dog growing old with me, to miss my husband’s touch, his words of love. How can I bear this? I have to for my family’s sake. I have to be brave and loving. I told myself I’d live full tilt for the rest of my time. Trying to be a good person, to be worthy of the privilege that has filled my life. The privilege, the many blessings. It worked for a while this morning. Now I am a mess again. So many things I want to do. Pull myself together. I have to be together when I see my family this morning at the doctor appointment. My surgeon was a common sense, go-forit-guy. He was disgusted with all the caution, and insisted that the surgery proceed. He was also a gifted physician, and I came through the major operation very well. But in view of the belief that it had spread to my liver, it did not seem fair to all the people that looked to me for leadership at work, it was not fair to keep working. I was eligible for early retirement and took it. I might have a limited

Sherri’s Story…A Fight with Cancer Following the Fire - Beginning at the End

Page 5

(An excerpt from Sherri McDowell’s Blog)

by Sherri CollisterMcDowell on 1/4/2013 prognosis, but I was going to live every day to the absolute maximum. I was going to follow my call to create. Up to that point I’d taken art classes but not really created anything beyond the bare minimum to pass the course. Now it would be different. I was on fire to get on with my new life as an artist. During the spring, summer and fall of 2004 I healed from the abuses my body had incurred during the fight. Cancer had raged through my system like a wildfire, burning me down to fighting weight, physically and mentally. I was rebuilding body and soul from the ashes. At times I felt so lonely, believing that there was a “hot spot” still smoldering inside my liver. Knowing that death was close made me different from the people eating beside me in restaurants, walking on the street, shopping or standing in line at the post office. I was separated from the hope of many tomorrows, and even when I could forget, there was a steady reminder in the chemotherapy and tests that claimed too much of my precious time. In response, I doubled down on creative activities, and spent quality

time with my family. I journaled, painted, and walked beside the rivers. My sister Diana organized a prayer chain for me comprised of people around the world. I still feel the power of those prayers nearly ten years later. The beginning was in the end. The beginning of my life as an artist, during the “end” of my life before. It was my leap of faith and desperation. It was not easy, and I did not know how it would all turn out. I am still becoming, having been through many wild fires, not just my own fight with cancer, but the loss of both my parents to this same disease, the loss of my marriage and the financial upheaval that it triggered. In September, 2004 after multiple scans and another six week round of chemotherapy, the doctor told me they were no longer worried that I had cancer in my liver. I had miraculously been reunited with the hope of living, and now, with the dream of becoming an artist, of making a life with joy and meaning. It has been a fantastic journey, and one that I long to share.

A Sneak Peak at the Brewing Industry in Central Oregon By the Oregon Employment Department - It is no secret that Central Oregonians love their beer. Out here on the high desert, it is common to see locals smelling, swirling, and tasting IPA or porter rather than wine. As of the summer of 2013, there were 25 breweries in Central Oregon with 18 of those in Bend. I am working on a new report coming out later in February that will take a detailed look at the impact of the brewing industry in Oregon. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at the industry here in Central Oregon and the impact of these 25 breweries. Brewing establishments fall into two general categories. There are manufacturing breweries that produce beer for general distribution. Many are smaller operations that tend to distribute kegs locally, while other operations may bottle or can their beer for a broader distribution. The other type of brewing establishment is a brewpub. These are pubs or eateries that brew beer onsite primarily for consumption at their pub. For this report only establishments that brew beer onsite are counted as a brewery. If a firm reports brewing at multiple locations, then each establishment is counted in the total number of brewing establishments. As stated earlier, the vast majority of Central Oregon breweries are in Bend (18). However, there are four breweries in the Redmond area, as well as one each in Sunriver, Prineville, and Sisters. There are more breweries in Deschutes County (24) than any other county in Oregon except Multnomah, which is home to Portland and its 50 brewing establishments. Breweries are large employers in Central Oregon. This past summer the brewing industry accounted for an average of 870 jobs. However, employment totals were likely a bit larger as it was not possible to verify the employment totals of the region’s five newest brewing establishments. About 20 percent of the Central Oregon brewing establishments are manufacturing breweries, while the remaining establishments are brewpubs. The median Central Oregon brewing establishment employs 34 individuals. Over the past year, Central Oregon added 117 brewing jobs, a growth rate of 15.5 percent. The only region to gain more brewing Continued page 7

jobs over the year was the Willamette Valley, which gained 167 jobs or an increase of nearly 30 percent. Although the industry is growing, it also seems to be a seasonal industry that mimics the tourism season in Central Oregon. Employment levels are slightly higher in the summer and a bit lower in the winter. This seasonal influence is accounted for by the staffing patterns of local brewpubs, which track very closely with restaurant and other eating places. Manufacturing brewery employment is much more stable throughout the year. These breweries contribute a significant amount of money to the local economy through wages paid to workers. Annual payroll from the fourth quarter of 2012 through the third quarter of 2013 was nearly $23 million in Central Oregon. Over this period, average annual pay for brewing workers was $29,836, less than Deschutes County’s average annual pay of $37,407. Due to the restaurant component of brewpubs, their average annual wage ($19,705) is lower than manufacturing breweries ($34,248). Restaurants tend to employ a higher concentration of lowwage occupations and many of these are parttime jobs. Although average pay in Central Oregon’s brewing industry is lower than the regional average,

the industry remains an important component of our economy. Besides contributing jobs and wages, brewing establishments that distribute their tasty craft beers outside the region bring in fresh dollars that can be recirculated in the local economy. Finally, these brewing establishments are also tourist attractions that draw visitors to Central Oregon tempted by our famous brews.

This past week the air at Wanoga snowpark was not just full of snow, but also the smell of two stroke gas & oil along with the sound of High performance machines revving up waiting their turn to run the track at the 3rd annual Snowmobile drag races. This is the second time that my 8 year old daughter has entered the event to run against the boys during the kids only class. Just as in last years race she only had boys to race as the only other girls were in a Ladies class for older more experienced riders. Many racers from around the Northwest come to our area to join in the fun these races bring as well as a chance to win some BIG prize money in the “Run what ya’ Brung” class. My daughter started out racing on a 120cc machine, but switched to a larger 550cc machine this year at the last minute. You see Matt, the boy that took first during last years run was back this year on a

modified 440cc machine, and the only other machine we brought was a 550cc Polaris RMK that we use as a rental machine at Good 2 Go....Food and Fun in Sunriver. After an hour or so of Ella riding me around the practice area she decided to race the larger machine against Matt to see if she could better her last years finish of 2nd place. I grew up racing Desert and Motocross races as a young boy, so seeing Ella’s excitement of motorsports brings back many fond memories. You could say that I was living vicariously through her on the track this day. If I was to race at this event it would mean a HUGE investment on a specialized machine. The “BIG BOYS” at these events do not mess around. With machines up to 1200cc, Nitrous Oxide & Turbo Boost with top speeds of around 100 miles per hour. There are many other classes for stock and modified machines to round out the two days of races. Just like the specialized machines on the track, the parking lot at Wanoga was full of fancy RV’s with trailers that spoke of the investment and dedication these racers have for their sport. I spoke with one race team that came complete with a mobile shop that can tear down and rebuild engines between races. After a Drag race style car complete with skis brought the American flag down the track to the sound of the crowd singing The Star Spangled Banner, the races began. LOUD is all I can say about the first wave of “Outlaw” class machines

Learn more about her pilgrimage at the East Bend and Sisters

Libraries as part of the Know Go series throughout the month of March. Both presentations are free and open to the public. According to Slepikas pilgrimages are a way to get away from the daily routine life demands. “Since they involve walking, thinking and believing pilgrimages have always been used as a sort of meditation on the move,” says Slepikas. “The ritual and repetitiveness of walking long miles clears the mind from daily tasks and forces pilgrims to deal with a more simple way of life.” El See Woman’s Journey page 11

Eagle Sales Director and Local Newberry Habitat Volunteer Coordinator Receives Award As winner of Business Person of the Year at the La Pine Chamber Annual Banquet: Dan Varcoe says he is “surprised and delighted.” By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter The Newberry Eagle and Eagle Highway Magazine teams know. So does Newberry Habitat for Humanity’s team. The City Council benefitted from his expertise about everything La Pine. The Chamber used to know every day. The Desert Sage Band is aware. And the community of La Pine recognizes our own Eagle staffer, Dan Varcoe as being an excellent leader for La Pine and the 2014 recipient of the Business Person of the Year for the La Pine Chamber of Commerce. Dan was awarded his honor at the La Pine Chamber Annual Banquet at the SHARC facility on February 22nd and he was in the company of over 100 of his closest friends. As the ballots came back in and the nominations were tallied, Dan’s name stuck out in more than one category, but hands down, he was the favored business person and with Dan being in such close proximity (the Chamber shares space with the Newberry Eagle) everyone was worried that Varcoe would find out before hand and the surprise would be ruined. “I was so surprised to hear my name called Saturday night,” Varcoe told the Eagle. “I had no idea and was not even sure that I was hearing what they said.” Varcoe continues to make a big difference using his marketing skills to build the circulation at the Newberry Eagle Newspaper and then he took on the new position of Volunteer Coordinator at the Newberry Habitat for Humanity affiliate located in La Pine and Sunriver. Dan has been in business (Varcoe Marketing) for years after he left his real estate business a few years before he took the helm of the La Pine Chamber of Commerce. Dan was an active Chamber member and board member at the Chamber before they asked him to replace Rose Alsbury when she moved away in early 2009. He served as Executive Director until the end of 2011. Always influential, Dan is ready to serve the community. He even served on the City council for two years from 2010-2012. Dan is always willing to consult the City, the Chamber, serves as the Sales Manager for the Newberry Eagle and along with the Newberry Habitat job growing the Homeowner Program and Volunteer Pool, does his marketing business as he networks and solves community problems. Congratulations to this year’s Business Person of the Year, Mr. Dan Varcoe!

Camino de Santiago was one of the most important Christian pilgrimages during medieval times. At the end of the trail pilgrims find themselves at the site where the body of St. James the Apostle is believed to be buried. “I may have thought the Camino was a time for solitude and reflection but it had something else in mind for me.” During her presentation Slepikas, who is also a photographer, will present slides and share stories from her experience on the Camino. She will bring the pack she carried, filled with the items from her journey. She will also share tips on the practical side of a planning a pilgrimage.

SOBIS Continued from page 5

Speaking in terms of the benefits I experienced during my first year with SOBIS, the list is a long one, here are just a few: low cost rent of a brand new retail space; educational opportunities that included online and face-to-face classes; access to a powerful software that helped me build a business plan in less than six months; and clear, mutually defined (and realistic) goal setting, accountability and reviews at well defined milestones. I believe that the future of Oakridge depends on how well we can develop and grow micro businesses. SOBIS is one of the most important assets we have as a community, perhaps second only to the beautiful environment that draws people to our area. Success won’t happen overnight, and there will be steps forward and steps backward. But the dream can come true, and SOBIS will surely play a major role in making the dream a reality.

ConnectW Spotlights Community Involvement

By Linden Gross Bend, OR – March 1, 2013 – If you want to get more involved in the community, check out ConnectW’s March 19th NonProfit Showcase Extravaganza meeting where eight local non-profit organizations will be showcasing what they do and explaining how you can contribute. At the end of the meeting, ConnectW members will vote to determine which organization will be the recipient of funds raised during its 2014 Winter Wonderland Gala. We’re talking about serious cash that can really make a difference. Last year’s winner, Oregon Adaptive Sports (OAS), recently received a check from ConnectW for $10,303. “At ConnectW, we’re all about creating community through women in business,” says president Diane Kulpinski. “But that isn’t just reserved for our membership. We reach out and support our local community as well. Our annual NonProfit Showcase Extravaganza is a great example of this. All the participating nonprofit organizations have a chance to talk about who they serve and why. Even if they aren’t selected as the gala recipients, the evening provides them with terrific exposure and a potential new crop of volunteers.” Based upon nominations from the ConnectW membership, the eight non-profits

selected to showcase their organizations during the March meeting are: Base Camp Studio Bethlehem Inn Beulah’s Place Big Brother, Big Sister Campfire Central Oregon Equine Outreach Serendipity West The Giving Plate At the meeting, you will have the chance to chat with representatives from each nonprofit organization and network from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. Over a delicious sitdown dinner meet even more ConnectW members and guests. Then find out how you can give back to our Bend community during each nonprofit organization’s fiveminute presentation. For more information, please call ConnectW Marketing Chair Amanda Albrich at (541) 848-8598, check out www. or come visit in person. ConnectW meets at 5 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at St. Charles (tickets are available on the website). You can attend without being a member, but ConnectW is pretty sure you’ll want to join its membership. After all, where else are you going to find such a mix of business opportunities, networking, friendship and fun?

Rotary Club of Greater Bend Continues Campaign to End Polio Now By Cort Vaughan, Submitted by Pamela Hulse Andrews In support of an international Rotary effort to eradicate polio, The Rotary Club of Greater Bend is launching the third year of raising funds to support the worldwide effort and is planning its March event called Pints for Polio. PINTS FOR POLIO The Pints for Polio event, set for Saturday, March 29 from 2-6pm in downtown Bend, will be a “pub crawl” type event where attendees will get a sampling of local beers from a dozen Bend pubs and restaurants. Cost is $25 per person and all the proceeds from the event will go into the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Attendees will receive a commemorative pint glass and a punch card good for six ounce beer tastes at a variety of downtown pubs to be used on the day of the event. Registrations can be made on-line at or if you would like to help sponsor the effort contact Cort Vaughan at 541-383-8180 or PintsForPolioBend@ END POLIO NOW The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is committed to achieving a poliofree world. Rotary is a spearheading partner in the GPEI, along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The goal of the initiative is the global certification of polio eradication. Local Rotarian and business consultant Cort Vaughan, a polio survivor, is chair of the End Polio Now Rotary Club of Greater Bend campaign. “I spent four months in the hospital at the age of two recovering from Polio,” explained Vaughan. “The disease left my right leg paralyzed below the knee. I do not want another child anywhere to be paralyzed by this horrible disease, which is why I am working with Rotary to immunize every child in the world.” Current Rotary Club of Greater Bend President Mike O’Neil has made it a priority for the local club to raise funds to help eradicate polio. O’Neil reported that through the work of the GPEI, more than five million people, mainly in the developing world, who would otherwise have been paralyzed, are walking because they have been immunized against polio, and more than 500,000 cases of polio are prevented each year due to the efforts of governments and the GPEI partnership. Transmission of the polio virus has been reduced from 125 countries in 1988 to half a dozen countries in 2013. Vaccinating our families according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended immunization schedules, not only protects our loved ones, but our entire community as well. LOCAL VACCINATION RATE Vaughan explains that what that statement means by protecting our community is the concept of herd immunity. “If someone infected with a communicable disease visits our community and only meets people who are immune, then the disease will not spread. If that infected person comes in contact with a susceptible individual, then the disease can spread. That is how epidemics get started. The greater the proportion of individuals that are resistant, the smaller the probability that a susceptible individual will come into contact with an infectious person. In this way

“Together, we make it happen!” unvaccinated people are indirectly protected by vaccinated people.” Unvaccinated children actually threaten the rest of the population by decreasing our herd immunity. A community must be about 85 percent vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. “The vaccination rate in Deschutes County is about 93 percent, so we do have herd immunity,” Vaughan said. However, school enrollment records from 2010/2011 indicated that some elementary schools on the west side of Bend had vaccination rates as low as 39 percent according to a news report in The Bulletin. “This puts all of the children in those schools at risk.” Routine childhood vaccinations eradicated Polio in the United States in 1975 and have almost eliminated Whooping Cough, Measles and other diseases that were once common. Some parents mistakenly believe that those diseases no longer exist and that vaccinations are not necessary. There have been recent outbreaks of Measles and Whooping Cough in multiple locations, including Washington, Oregon, and California. None of these occurred in Deschutes County, however we are vulnerable. Recent outbreaks of Measles and Whooping Cough demonstrate that these diseases are still present and that routine vaccinations are critical to our health. Only 3 countries have never been polio free: Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria. Those 3 countries had fewer cases of polio in 2013 than any year in history. Rotary International recently announce that India has been Polio free for three years! According to the Oregon Public Health Authority immunization is the safest and most effective public health tool available for preventing disease and death. Thanks to vaccinations, we have not seen or experienced many of the infectious diseases that gripped past generations such as polio, measles, rubella, diphtheria and tetanus.

Employment numbers are improving, the commercial real estate market is seeing more action and banks are increasingly willing to lend money to qualified businesses. Commentary by Tom Schnel for Sterling Bank Lodging taxes collected in Deschutes County continued to climb in December. The $319,538 collected in December represented a nearly 27% increase over December 2012, according to data from the Central Oregon Visitors Association. For the fiscal year to date, transit-room tax collections in the county have reached more than $2.8 million, an increase of nearly 19% over the same period during the previous fiscal year, which runs from July to June. Tax collections gains from the unincorporated areas of Deschutes County and the city of Bend allowed Central Oregon to outplace the rest of state last year in tourism growth, Alana Hughson, president and CEO of COVA wrote in an email. “In surveying our members,” she wrote, “COVA anticipates that visitors volume will remain strong, albeit with slower growth, through out 2014.

Former Battalion Chief Needs Our Help!!

By Shayne Murany Cox, Kyle’s Sister

Kyle Kirchner has devoted most of his life to serving others and putting his life on the line. Once again, he finds himself in a life threatening situation. Now, we have been given the opportunity to show our love, support and appreciation, and serve him. In my lifetime, I have raised thousands of dollars for causes that I believe in, written hundreds of emails and donation letters, and created websites asking friends and strangers alike for support. I have volunteered and chaired events for schools, adults & children, disease research, animal rights, nonprofits; you name it. Never has a cause meant more to me than this one. Never. Maybe the reason is because Kyle is my big brother. It’s possible that it is because he has spent his entire life a humanitarian, a firefighter/ chief/leader, helping others

through her battle with lung cancer. Whatever the reason, I feel the need to share his story with everyone, so thank you for visiting today. Everybody has a story… some happy, some sad. I think you would agree that some of the best stories are those that involve hard work, struggle and sacrifice, but end victorious and happy. This is Kyle’s story. He’s covered the hard work, struggle and even the sacrifice. With your love and support, we can help write his victorious and happy ending, together. Kyle’s infectious smile, contagious laugh, and uncanny ability to make people feel comfortable are all ingredients synonymous with home. Five minutes after To contribute funds to help Kyle and his family go to: meeting him you suddenly feel like family, and family is everything to Kyle. As many or on facebook: of you know, he comes from and his community. Perhaps it’s because cancer the fact that in 2013, just prior to being diagnosed a very large, close family. has affected 9 of our family members and taken 4 himself, Kyle and his wife Julia depleted the bulk Born in Florida and raised in of their lives in the past ten years. It may even be of their personal savings supporting Julia’s sister See Battalion Chief page 20

La Pine Community Action Team (LCAT/NCAT) Dissolves after 14 years By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter At the end of the nineties, the Partnership to End Poverty was being formed as a representative agent for economic development and social change across the nation. In December of 2013, the Partnership closed its doors at the end of their intended years of helping and handed over their work to the many organizations and governmental agencies across

Central Oregon that are geared up to take their place. Through the partnership, small communities like La Pine, who operated without the benefit of a local government, received help and guidance through the many community action teams that were established. One of our main focuses at the time of LCAT’s inception was to create a sounding board for the 20 plus LCAT/NCAT Closes page 20

LPRD Archery after School Classes hit the Target

Page 17

By T. Myers and Karen Demaris

The La Pine Park & Recreation District Community School program has over 180 students registered. They offer a variety of classes and tutoring sessions after regular school hours. During the past year and a half one of the most popular classes that has been offered is the after school archery program taught by Karen Demaris. (a long time archer and former officer of the Bend Bowmen organization). The National Archery in Schools program (NASP) was made possible by a $2100 grant the District received for archery equipment. Karen, along with Ralph Torpin, a Park & Rec employee, set Monday at 4pm to work with youth at the Community Center throughout the school year. It is free for the youth and the first 16 to sign up get coaching and shooting for an hour. During the past month, La Pine archers have started to walk their talk at local competitions and it is paying off. This last weekend the Oregon Bow Hunters Convention was held at the Riverhouse in Bend. The State Youth Archery Tournament was held on Friday night. Youth from 1st to 12th grades competed and came for all over the state including; Roseburg, Eugene, Portland, La Grande, Klamath Falls, Prineville, Redmond, Bend and La Pine. Three (3) middle school archers from La Pine shot and all placed. In the Female NASP Middle School Division, Sabrina Pankey (12) won 2nd and Skye McClendon (12) won 3rd. In the Male NASP Middle School Division, Evan Mercer (12) won 3rd. Karen and Ralph were there with the Youth’s families to support them at the competition. La Pine supports its youth and the youth shine! For more info about the classes call 541-536-2223 to register.

DEQ Ready to Get Out of “One-Size-Fits All” Box By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter

On Tuesday, February 25th, 2014, representatives from the Deschutes County Citizens Action Group board, Kenny and Judy Forsythe, Wendell Evers and John Huddle met with House Minority Leader, Rep. Mike McLane, Mike Carew of the House Republican’s office, DEQ Director Dick Pedersen and Palmer Mason of DEQ in Salem to go over the report DEQ must make to the Legislature. According to John Huddle, Director Pedersen stated that the fiveyear moratorium on ATT systems is independent of all other Steering Committee recommendations. Currently, it is working through the Attorney General’s process for best administrative rule language. He expects the moratorium to be treated as a geographical rule in the rule making process before the Environmental Quality Commission, or EQC. That means it will be an administrative rule that only applies to

the La Pine Basin region, including North Klamath County. It will not require a plan to implement a sanitary authority or wait for the goal 11 exception - it stands upon its own merit. Director Pedersen gave the impression that this rule will move with due speed once it is out of the AG’s hands. Mr. Huddle said, “I am confident that Director Pedersen was transparent in our conversation, so I look forward to the call for public comments on the rule as soon as the AG releases the draft language.” During the group meeting, Director Pedersen said, “We have total justification to do a moratorium, and yes, we have time.” He also stated: “The box we need to get out of is the one-size-fits-all; five years will give us time to bring in the right solution.” Huddle said, “I want to especially thank House Minority Leader, Rep. Mike McLane and Mike Carew, the House Republican’s office policy analyst, for their hard work (arranging the meeting with the DEQ Director ).

Annual Chamber Award Winners Honored at the 2014 Banquet By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter At the Annual Banquet, the La Pine Chamber gave the nod of recognition to some of our area businesses and organizations. Two individuals were also praised for their contributions to the community. • The 2013 Business of the Year is a company that in only eight short years has consistently shown a true commitment to serving La Pine and the surrounding communities. The co-owners are passionate about La Pine and Deschutes County and both of them are involved in its march into the future. They have created full-time jobs by expanding their business. Kathy and Tony DeBone continue to support many area organizations with donations of money and time. This year’s recipient is Little d Technology.

This year we are happy to honor the Newberry Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Manager, Rolando Alonzo and Executive Director, Dwane Krumme were there to receive the award.

• The 2013 Gil Martinez Spirit of the Community Award was created in 2010 to honor the quiet, supportive people behind the scenes- so to speak. This award is granted by the Chamber’s Executive Director and is designed to honor one individual in the community that exemplified the low-key doer who stepped up to fill a need and it was modeled after one of the legends of community giving, Gil Martinez, who worked tirelessly to help with those small and necessary details that often finished the projects people were involved in. In La Pine tonight, we have one of those like-minded individuals who organizes projects and takes his time to do all of those jobs that ‘need to be finished’ in order to bring closure to an event, a season or a project. Working hard at everything from hanging up the seasonal flags on the light posts around town to loading up Christmas baskets, taking a turn at the rodeo to help visitors get seated, or inventing an ambulatory “Eddie” for the local parades. Tonight’s award winner is the quiet and generous, Norm Jansen.

local nonprofits that could come to be heard through the LCAT meetings and apply for specific help on their projects that were funded through the years LCAT/NCAT was in operation. The first goal of providing communication in the area was realized almost immediately with the creation of the Newberry Eagle Newspaper. Run by longtime La Pine supporter, Christi Otteni, it was privatized in 2004 when Kim Feer bought it. Circulation grew and before long Eagle Lady Multimedia took interest and now it belongs to local publisher, Sandra Jones. The Eagle now serves our local area and has reached out to serve an area from Sisters to Gilchrist to Oakridge to Christmas Valley, Redmond, Bend and everything in between. All of it started with LCAT! After La Pine became a City in late 2006, there was a change in what the purpose of LCAT should be. As a 501- C-3 corporation, the LCAT organization worked to help various fundraising projects in the

community to get their footing. It now serves as an umbrella to nonprofits that are raising money for various causes and are vetted for their work and goals. The La Pine Lions, the Frontier Days Association, The Newberry Music Festival (MS), the La Pine Chamber of Commerce and Cast Outreach are a few of the organizations that have taken in donations that are tax deductions because of their association with LCAT. For two years it has been increasingly difficult to find hard working board members and after doing a fall festival and Gospel weekend during 2011 and 2012, the board decided that it was time to grow to a close. On February 11, the board unanimously passed a resolution to dissolve the organization. There are arrangements made to turn over the existing funds to another local nonprofit who will be working closely with the outgoing LCAT board to continue to help local nonprofits who have worked with the LCAT/ NCAT in the past.

The LCAT made a historic impact on La Pine and acted as its advocate and voice for a decade. As it goes into the history books, former board members are running many of the organizations that help others in our area. Former longtime President, Chris Riggs will continue to work hard to run the Community Kitchen. Secretary, Penny Vicari will continue to serve on another local board. Current President, Teri Myers will continue to write for the Newberry Eagle and do work in other organizations. Ann Gawith, VP, will continue to work at the La Pine Chamber and operate the Frontier Days Association. Other board members serve throughout the community and will continue to make a difference. La Pine thanks LCAT for all of the years it stood at the helm for those folks who give help to those folks who need help.

Years later, with a divorce behind him, the then single dad met his life partner, his love, Julia. Kyle and Julia were married in 1991 and Jesse and Summer welcomed their sister Mandy and eventually, their youngest brother Kyler to the family. Kyle is a dedicated husband, father, and now grandpa to 5 beautiful grand babies whom all reside in Oregon. Not only is Kyle a family man, but a humanitarian and a leader. Loved by all who know him, he has

dedicated his life to serving others on a daily basis through his career as a firefighter. A true leader, Kyle began his career in 1980 as a volunteer fireman. Once he knew firefighting was his calling, he made it his career and quickly moved up to the rank of Battalion Chief. Kyle has served his community and fellow firefighters in the role of Battalion Chief and Fire Chief ever since. For the past five years Kyle has served as the Fire Chief at Crescent RFPD in Crescent, Oregon.

Joannie and her dedicated team – Serving the La Pine Community for more than 10 Years How many stories have you heard of where someone goes to the doctor for one thing and leaves with a completely different diagnosis? Too many, right? Well, you can add one more to that list. What seemed like a month came soon enough. In early November, 2013, the test results were in. Diagnosis: Multiple Myeloma. Cancer. That awful word that we keep hearing over and over again. That global, rising epidemic that we can’t seem to cure. That dreaded disease that prematurely takes the lives of people we love. Not this time! Not if we can help it, anyway. November, 2013 marks a turning point in Kyle’s life that we’d all rather forget, but is his daily reality now. Kyle has multiple myeloma bone cancer. Results revealed tumors growing in the bone on his rib, hip, right shoulder, left scapula and skull. His cancer has been classified as “moderate” on the low/moderate/ high scale. “Incurable”, the doctor said, “but treatable. It may take multiple treatments over several years.” I have never asked Kyle how he felt when he heard those Appointments starting at 7:15am (Mon -Thurs) words, all I can tell you is that I felt like someone was Located next to Shop Smart in La Pine. mopping up the floor with my heart after I did. His treatments began immediately, just before La Pine’s ORIGINAL Septic Tank Pumping Service Christmas. Despite Kyle’s SINCE 1957 positive attitude and strong SHIELDS SEPTIC will, the treatments have Mon-Fri really started taking their toll TANK SERVICE 8:00 am on him, both physically and AND 4:00 pm financially.

Confused yet?

CALL 541-536-8060


Just wait. This round of treatments consists of oral steroids and a weekly injection of chemo. This 16 week treatment is targeted to reduce the lesion on his rib, as well as reduce the percentage of cancer cells attached to his plasma. After he completes this first therapy, they will perform another marrow biopsy to get those numbers. This is just the first of two separate treatments. The next treatment is very aggressive. It will take Kyle’s immune system completely away (back to an infant). They will remove stem cells from his blood and save them. He will be admitted to OHSU for over a month and remain in a sterile environment, receiving blood transfusions while his body rebuilds the red and white blood cells. Kyle will turn 60 during his hospital stay at OHSU. On a day to day basis Kyle suffers from cluster (aka: “suicide”) headaches triggered by the chemotherapy, sometimes having up to eight per day. He is on an O2 regimen, lithium, and a trial drug to try to help reduce the onset of these headaches and receives Imitrex injections to subside them. The oxygen is not covered by insurance, which costs approximately $90 per day, nor are the Imitrex injections at approximately $300 each. Julia drives the 90 mile trip to take Kyle to his doctor multiple times per week. He has not been able to work full time and Julia is not working, as she is Kyle’s primary caretaker. Kyle’s medical expenses that have not been covered by insurance are in excess of $6,000 to date and continue to increase by the day, as he continues to need medical care and medication. The need for help and support couldn’t be greater than at this moment. Every prayer, donation, gesture helps tremendously and makes a difference. If there is any way that you have the opportunity at this point in your world to make a difference in his, we would all be forever grateful. If you are not able to do anything by means of offering a donation, sharing his story with others is equally important to us and appreciated more than you know. Please visit and “like” his Facebook page at https:// The more people we can share his story with, the better the opportunity we have to make a difference! Thank you and God bless, Shayne and all of Kyle’s beloved family

Ford Institute: Champions of Community Leadership make La Pine an even better place for our citizens and our children. I believe in the mission of successful citizens and building vital rural communities.” The Ford Institute for Community Building helps her to do that. To that end, Kathy, along with other community members and organizations, the Rural Development Initiatives, and funding from the Ford Family Foundation, worked to bring an Economic Vitality Summit to Newberry Country in November of 2013. The topic the Continued below

By Ellen Currie, Eagle Reporter Newberry Eagle - La Pine, Oregon

When Kathy DeBone and her husband, County Commissioner Tony DeBone, entered the Ford Institute Leadership Program in 2008, Kathy was interested in becoming a better leader for her business, La Pine’s Little d’ Technology. What she discovered was a deep attraction to collaborative leadership and interest in becoming more involved with her community. Using the training, knowledge, and skills she developed in the Leadership Program, Kathy DeBone has become a Champion of Leadership for our community. Kathy is not only a graduate of La Pine’s Ford Institute Leadership Program Cohort I and an active Ford Community Ambassador Team (CAT) Advocate, in 2013 she was awarded the honor of becoming a Ford Community Fellow. Fellows are expected to develop a plan to explore, learn, and practice the art of community building and Economic Vitality. Kathy’s mission as a Ford Community Fellow is “to inspire and empower my community to reach for our Rural Economic Vitality goals using the principles of the Tupelo Model, while committing myself to a lifetime of learning.” The Tupelo Model involves commonsense guiding principles that build on a rural community’s greatest asset - the people. Economic development came about in the community of Tupelo, Mississippi, because of the ability of the citizens to identify and work together on common goals and concerns. Their dedication to educating children and adults, their constant quest for ways of providing each other with needed resources and skills, made their community goal a reality. Kathy explains that, “research shows that civic engagement is positively related to economic vitality and good local government. The biggest lesson we can learn from the Tupelo model is this: in developing a community it is essential to connect people with institutions and organizations; to lay a foundation for balanced and sustainable economic development.” Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, AssetBased Community Development (ABCD) draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future. Kathy believes that La Pine can use ABCD to create economic vitality in our community. “We already have local assets in place that serve as the foundation for sustainable rural community development.” Clearly, Kathy DeBone is one of those assets. She is an active community volunteer and is engaged in many organizations, events and activities. Kathy serves on the Board of Directors of the La Pine Park and Recreation Foundation, is a member of the La Pine Adult Education Committee, a congregant at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, and a member of the La Pine Rodeo Association. She is also a founder of the La Pine Coop and Garden Tour. When asked about her particular interest in the Ford Institute for Community Building, Kathryn commented, “I love serving my community. I am interested in developing my skills, learning more about community building, and working with others to

community showed the most interest in was “Discovering an Economic Strategy” to assist existing businesses. By taking an entrepreneurial approach to regional prosperity, the community can practice a “grow from within” strategy that supports existing companies within the community to thrive and grow. Because of Kathy DeBone and other active and committed leaders, in 2014 we can look forward to learning how to take the next steps in the Oregon Main Street Revitalization Program, a follow-up to the Economic Vitality Summit. Meanwhile, the Ford Institute Leadership Program continues to champion community leaders after 6 years of training and community building. Kathy encourages community members of all ages and backgrounds to help make La Pine and Newberry Country a great place to live, work, and play. Kathy and her family believe in actively working toward vital rural communities. Her 15-year old son, Michael, and her mother, Linda Reid, both are participating in the 2013-2014 Ford Leadership Program Cohort 4, expanding the tradition of community leadership in their family and our community.

SOS from the Grange Prairie House Hosts Chili Cook-Off By Pam Cosmo, Granger As many people know, the Little Deschutes Grange, here in La Pine has a long history of being in service to this community. We have a Grange Hall just off 3rd St. on Morson that is host to our Saturday Markets on the first Saturday of each month. We hold business meetings and potlucks on the 3rd Tuesday evenings of each month. In Febuary, we will be starting a new program with Neiborhood Impact called Brown Baggers that will be distributing fresh produce and foods to anyone who needs it for free. We host the La Pine Chicken Coop and Garden Tour. We have given scholarships and money to the Habitat for Humanity Re-store, 4 H Clubs, and to local students for college tuition. This year, we also will be opening the Hall for free to local musicians to hold community jam sessions every other Sunday afternoon. All local musicians are encouraged to join us, and the community is invited to listen or dance or join in as much as they want. The La Pine Car Club meets at the Grange as well. The Hall is available for rent for social functions such as weddings, memorial services, parties, and meetings. Call Carla Crume if you want information on Hall rental. 541-536-7419. That is a pretty ambitious agenda, and we are open to other ideas people may have as well. But, we have a problem. Right now, we only have 5 or 6 couples who are active members, and we need more people. This is a family oriented organization dedicated to improving the rural lifestyle and being good citizens. Kids are members, so one does not

need to hire a babysitter when attending meetings or functions. We look after each other. At the last meeting, we draped the charter for a long-term member, Neil Cullison, who recently passed away. When someone is sick or in need, we are a resource for each other. My husband and I suffered a bad fire on our property last summer, and it was with assistance from Grangers and friends that we got our place cleaned up and re-built. I don’t know what we would have done without them. I sympathize with people who move to La Pine upon retiring, and just want to kick back. But, making this place a home requires making friends and contributing to the common good. That lends itself to joy and a sense of satisfaction in the long run. We don’t know what lies ahead, but we do know that we live in challenging times. Whether it’s protecting our land and water, becoming familiar with local issues, localizing food production, raising animals, creating gardens, working on classic old cars, making music, or preparing for difficult times, the Grange provides a place to deal with it all – and have fun in the process. If you have been considering joining the Grange, please hesitate no longer. We need you now. Call me for encouragement. Pam Cosmo 541-536-3007, or call our Grange Master, Sally Sutton 541-536-7610. Thanks.

It’s so easy to... let us do it for you. Dependable, Courteous Service

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter When we were contacted by the Prairie House to come over and judge their Chili Contest, we grabbed our spoons and ran to help the contest out. Stu Martinez, Jane Gillete and Dan Varcoe, were there to take their tastes, share their love of a good chili and figure out what chili was the top bowl. Judy Cantrell, Michelle Carlson, Courtney Thorton, Steve Mays and the capable staff at Prairie House have been doing a super job of providing activities and celebrations for their residents and over the past few years we have attended the King and Queen Coronation at Valentine’s Day, the St. Patrick’s Day luncheon and the Halloween parties and costume contests, too. At Christmas, they decorate and prepare for their residents to invite guests to come and enjoy a meal or a visit and they are always decorated for every holiday tradition including a 4th of July ice cream social!

People often ask what it is like for the people who live at Prairie House. Some make new friends and others bloom with the close proximity of caregivers and activities. No one needs to be lonely! For those who want to have an idea of what assisted living is like, the Prairie House invites you over to tour and share a meal. Every one of us may be in a position during our final years to have to make the changes that will mean we have to go somewhere. Why not go where you can enjoy time with others and a good bowl of Chili or a piece of Pie at the pie contest? Staff members prepared the chili creations. Courtney Thornton, Life Enrichment Coordinator and Steve Mays, Administrative Assistant served the chili samples to the judges. This year’s winners add their names to a list of winners at Prairie House: 1st place LeAnn Damian, 2nd place Vivian Palmer and 3rd Place Jill Alvarez.

From Fat, Sick and Tired to Alive and Well By Phil Davis, Living Well Coach

Men, you know you’ve got problems when the only thing going up these days is the cost of living. That’s right, I’m talking about Prostate Issues....let’s get serious... Check this out...are you getting up two and three times a night to go empty your bladder? If you are, you’re getting very little deep, healing sleep. That was one of my problems along with male ED nine years ago. I weighed 249 pounds, had irritable bowel syndrome and lower back pain. There is a term called “normal body function”...I was far from that at 49 years old. My wife, Celeste, announced she was going on a “detox program” and on her way to buy fruits and veggies. She asked me “what do you want me to get you to eat”? She was shocked when I told her I would join her on the detox program instead of having my usual fare of Mt. Dew, Chocolate Ice Cream, Doritos, Meat

and Potatoes, Beer and know the Standard American Diet. I thought “bless her heart, I’ll join her...she’s got some problems”...all the while I had no idea the foods I loved the most were affecting my body and destroying my health. I thought if I joined her on this “diet” it would help her out. I had no idea that the next 21-days would completely improve my life and restore my body to normal function. Getting up 2-3 times a night? By the fifth morning I realized I had slept through the night. Male ED was gone and the honeymoon was on. Low back pain, irritable bowel syndrome and twenty-one pounds were gone in 21-days. Free from the addictions, with my body back to normal function; why would I go back to old habits and the discomfort that came from eating mostly junk.

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter The 6th annual CERF Seminar took place on January 30th at the Bend Riverhouse with all of the main players to teach us about our economic forecast for the 2014 year. Lanae Hunter, President of Windemere Properties, and Keith Rivera of UBS Financial Services, and their CERF Board of directors put on the event each year with nationally recognized economist, Dr. Bill Watkins, from California Lutheran University leading the way through the seminar. They always feature a host of other speakers that are experts in their fields rounding out the list of presenters. Information presented is coordinated, timely and relevant to the upcoming year and it is designed to give participants a chance to get grounded with accurate predictions of what to expect in the year ahead. Each year, more and more people (this year over 200 attended the seminar) who want to know have been coming to the event, because in the six annual sessions starting after the 2007 downturn, the forecasting has been precise and completely “spot on” for the Central Oregon economy, thanks to the research and careful assessment of the world, the nation, the State and our region by Dr. Watkins. The panel of experts this year was comprised of Dr. Becky Johnson from OSU Cascades, Patrick O’Keefe, Cascade Insurance Center, who is an insurance expert who addressed Obamacare and how it affects businesses, Dino Vindetti, from Seven Peaks Ventures, who addressed the future of technology ventures in the Bend region, national economist and writer, Joel Kotkin (2nd appearance) who talked about Urban Futures and Dr. Bill Watkins in his 6th appearance addressed the attendees with a look at the nation , the state and the Central Oregon region ending on a positive note for the first time since the annual seminars began. Here is a breakdown of the speaker’s talks: Dr. Becky Johnson moved to Bend in 2008 at the beginning of the economic downturn. After 20 years as a micro economist in the Department of Forestry at OSU, she began to take on academics assessment, administration, personnel policy and Executive Management, preparing her to lead at the university and ultimately lead the new OSU branch in Bend. Dr. Johnson highlighted the “stabilization

that a University can bring to an area” because a University is countercyclical. This means that when the economy is down, people go back to school and money flows into the economy in a different way. She added the fact that students spend about $11K per year past the costs of tuition and food and lodging in the area where they attend college and with students and faculty coming from all over the world to what the new advertisements call ‘The OSU with an Edge’ here in Bend, more money funnels into the Central Oregon economy as a direct result of the university locating here. “You are getting the value of OSU in Corvallis right here in Bend,” Johnson went on. “But there are unique programs available in Bend.” She listed degrees in Energy Systems Engineering, General Business Degrees, Tourism and Outdoor Leadership, Computer Science for the Web and Mobile Web design, MFA in Creative Writing, Accounting and Hospitality Management and explained how they will work. The regular degrees will also be available. Johnson laid out plans covering the first ten acres of the campus and told the group that the first buildings will be an Academic building for classes and a residence hall. There are plans to have classrooms that will be usable by the community for meetings during off hours, a few retail stores and cafes for the students, and the fact that the campus is within walking distance of the Old Mill District allows students to access many services they might need. After a question about OSU partnering with Bend Parks and Rec on use of the new facility that will house gyms, fitness center and other amenities, Johnson said that it was in the works. She invited people who are interested in being part of the campus advisory committee to help plan the curriculum development of the University to go online and register your interest. The next expert was Patrick O’Keefe, (Cascade Insurance Center) who has served as an advisor to Pacific Care, MODA and many others as an insurance consultant. He delivered information on the topic of what ‘Obamacare means to Business Owner’. Taking a humorous tact to open the discussion he said that. “Cover Oregon was a train wreck with a dysfunctional infrastructure.”

Dino Vindetti, Seven Peaks

Becky Johnson from OSU the Cascades

That being said, he went on to explain that small businesses are facing big changes in what they can do for their employees. Depending on size of the company, employers may have to help their employees register through the Cover Oregon plan in order to get less expensive policies. All business group plans will terminate this year, so will special plans that use to cover managers and highly compensated employees because of the new non-discrimination laws. There will be new plans for seasonal, part time and full time employees and it will be crucial for employers to work alongside their agents to get the info they need for their employees and themselves. The third speaker was Dino Vindetti, an entrepreneur and owner of Seven Peaks Ventures discussed Bend’s Tech Future. Vindetti opened by saying that he has a mission: ‘Building a thriving sustained technology sector in Central Oregon that creates balance in the economy and positions CO for the coming decades’. Vindetti said the software industry has been ‘hollowing out and transforming’ every industry and will continue to do so. This is a major change in communications and business in general. How can we create a regional tech cluster?” Vindetti asked. “I have a big Bend Theory!” • We need to grow talent. Having OSU working with the business sector to educate students to be ready for jobs that are waiting for them is a good first step. • We need opportunities to re-tool older people. This will add to the pool of people

that are ready to allow tech companies to grow. • We need to recruit talent. EDCO is doing a good job of bringing people here to the area. Inviting businesses to take a look and see why we all have chosen to live and work here is an important step. • Mentor and Grow talent. Check out Founders Pad and other companies that are willing to mentor • Capitol: We need ventures that will take on the early stages of high risk development and investment to build a cluster. He discussed a contest where winners will be featured as start-ups. • We need to Drive Awareness: Using publications and media to get the word out like in the recent articles in or the Economist to spread the message that we are tuned up and ready to grow here in Central Oregon. Vindetti concluded that there was a key ‘learning’: “Economic vitality is possible and the contest winners will become hubs for the future. Professor Joel Kotkin appeared at the third CERF Seminar and was asked to return a second time as the fourth speaker to look forward across North America, Oregon and Bend. He is a global economist who writes for Forbes and teaches at Chapman University. His positive and uplifting talk started with his ideas about long term fundamentals. “America is the best positioned country in the world because the states are so diversified, Kotkin began. “So the question becomes, how do we empower the states and See CERF REPORT page 26

Newberry Eagle - La Pine, Oregon

The New Senior By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day - a Magical Day! To me, St. Patrick’s Day is a magical time. I have spent some of the best adult times of my life celebrating St. Paddy’s Day with friends and relatives and it makes me think about why we lose the magic, how we find the magic and share it and what we can do to keep the magic in our lives. Now I know- especially around Valentine’s Day there is a lot of talk about putting magic back into your love relationship. But, that is just a small part of what we should all be looking for. I am talking about the real deal. The “I have a feeling down to my toes” kind of feeling that you get when something really hits you hard and impacts your heart! You can still find it. Do you remember…? Once upon a time when the world was a huge and magical place where Santa reigned supreme at Christmastime, the Tooth Fairy showed up to collect your missing teeth from right under your pillow in the middle of the night, replacing them with some coins or a dollar bill and the Easter Rabbit delivered a basket of Easter candy right before the Easter piggies woke up to discover the treats and eat them all up on Easter Sunday? Could it have been a better world? The sun was shining when you played outside. You got new galoshes to play in the rain and the mud puddles. Neighbors said hello and they kept an eye on you to help your family keep you safe. Sunday school classes were about the great stories of the Bible and all the kids who went to the churches in town got to learn the same ones. And Sunday school was actually a class with a curriculum that took kids through the Bible and taught them lessons about getting along with others. The stickers and stars and the presentations that Sunday school kids made in the Adult church taught us all to do a better job of learning. Then there was school. We all made friends, learned to share, learned to sit down in

regions? By realizing that places like Portland are different from places like Bend.” He joked about being a red area in a blue state. Then he listed a few important facts that are leading to changes that will make the economy better: • The drop in birth rate is turning around so there will be more potential workers. • America has lots of oil resources and that makes it easier for us in the future • Population figures are growing exponentially. • With a shrinking workforce, there is a growing consumer group: retirees and older adults= more consumerism and less productivity in the production of goods. • Ratio of elderly to working age people is growing and that means there are fewer people left to support all the new seniors. • We have more arable land than any other place on earth. • We are exporting more agricultural products now. • Natural Gas production will skyrocket. • Manufacturing is holding steady. • Manufacturing drives technological development (He spoke to the role of Intel for Oregon. He made sure that everyone knew that Oregon has a terrible reputation for having the “worst business climate” and that migration to Oregon is down while there is an increase in population in Washington and California. Since the recession of 2007, Oregon continues to show poor employment growth with Central Oregon’s working numbers being the highest in unemployment. Oregon has a 3% job growth, but because people do not migrate here or immigrate here (Portland is known to be the whitest city in America) we are not positioned for some of the growth that say, Texas with its 18% growth rate is experiencing. Kotkin noted that America also has a real underemployment problem with college grads working as janitors and the like. Is there a big opportunity here? Where we live? “Grand delusions won’t save Oregon,” Kotkin explained. “Green jobs and forced diversity, organic gardening and farming and a happiness index come into play.” He went on to say that we can want to reduce the carbon footprint and make our State green, but it is an insignificant contribution to global greening! Kotkin’s pertinent comments: Education: “Working class kids need to get a basic skill that pays well. Others do not have to go to college for four years to get work that will help the economy and pay their way. Going to two year programs instead of four year schools should be a focus. Housing Prices will determine where people live and young people will move there to work and buy a house if they can afford it. This will determine migration in the future. Bend is too

expensive. California is too expensive. What needs to change? Small cities and towns will be the choice to find the American Dream. He has coined the term Micropolitan areas that are small but have all of the features that residents are looking for. There will be a big shift towards working from home so where you live will not be so important. (In 2009, 34 million people worked from home and in 2013, 64 million people worked from home.) To access Joel Kotkin you can sign up for a free newsletter at CERF leader, Dr. Bill Watkins, wrapped up the annual seminar. Working in a university setting he is surrounded by a team of PhDs that develop and produce models that match their annual forecasts for the economy. He is the economist for the Central Oregon CERF group. Watkins began by saying that there will not be another housing bubble. Home ownership levels out at 65% and when it went up to 69% a few years back it set the balance off, resulting in the recession. We learned what would work and have corrected it. Now the rents are solid and house prices are right. He went on to ask the following questions: “Is oil enough?” Oil is changing everything across the country. Moving towards energy independence within the next five years will help stabilize the economy. “How bad is Obamacare for the economy?” It is very bad. It is a drag on the economy, but it won’t kill us. “Have we reached the peak for office space?” Watkins explained that Kotkin has worked out a formula and America (maybe the world) has reached the peak in developed office space for our nation. We are using smaller offices and smaller retail spaces and people are morphing into higher end retail spaces and out of the strip malls. With telecommuting growing offices will be less important. “Is the recovery getting stronger?” This recession was never going to let us have a strong recovery. When Lehman Brothers collapsed in the fall of 2007 it changed the model for the world into a ‘new normal’ that we will live with for the future He then showed a slide of a turtle to show that the economy will continue to grow slowly- but steadily. “How do you change the forecast to be better?” Decide what you need to do with immigration policies. 70% of the world’s economists agree that the one billion poorest people across the globe immigrating to America and other countries will let the GNP double. If we decide to bring them here! Why? Because it is the new immigrants that are willing to take risks to start new businesses, learn new skills and grow the economy. See CERF REPORT page 27

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back one spot for hours on end, enjoyed recesses where you really played games with your friends and then you learned to be quiet and listen to your teacher as she/he stepped you through the steps it took to complete a grade and go on in your studies. We walked to school if we were within a couple of miles. We walked home for lunch if there was time. Our mothers were at home when we came through the door at the end of the day and we learned to be good American students who loved our country, our state and our towns. Most of us wanted to go to school. Those who did not like being students quietly moved aside and the rest of us moved forward. As early as the late fifties, as some of us reached the end of our first decade of life, there were stirrings of change and just the slightest air of skepticism was hovering overhead. The magic bubble was about to burst. It comes with age. We lose the innocence of youth and we move further from the crystal clear childlike attitudes of our young lives to the questioning adolescent years, the protesting twenties and so forth. By the time we work, raise our families and start to collect wrinkles, it is harder to remember the joy that those magical times brought us. I went into the theater so I could continue to Play. (Why do they call them plays, anyway?) Every time we built a world of the play, it was created for the run of the play and dismantled so that pouf! It was like it never happened! I have been on a deserted island with a group of shipmates in the Tempest. I sang my heart out over losing Yanki-Poo to another younger woman in the Mikado. I treated a group of orphans badly and with a vengeance and tried to dupe Daddy Warbucks in Annie. I pushed my daughter out on the stage in Gypsy and there have been another fifty or so big roles that let me renew my feeling for the magic over the years. I am a lucky one. Now I am asking you to consider what makes the magic in your own life. Once you find it, don’t let it go. It will make everything else a little brighter.

Watkins has made a point of saying that we need to bring immigrants in to help us. (In LA, 43% of new businesses are started by Mexicans that have moved here to get a new chance to make it.) “Just like Olympic records breaking with new athletes,” Watkins quipped, “new immigrants break new records in growing the economy.” Secondly, do you realize how many foreign students we educate in our four year universities and graduate programs and when their education ends we send them home to use what they learned in America in their own countries. Immigration policy gone awry! Why aren’t we keeping them here to work? They are ready! And they want to stay in America, but are headhunted to go to other developing nations who grab them as juniors to come work in other countries. Stop the war on Drugs. We spend millions on fighting something we should not deal with because in the 70’s the administration wanted to control usage. If drugs were legal, the monies could be spent elsewhere and the drain on the economy would give us a real boost. We have 10 x more prisoners in our jails than any other developed country and the drug related crimes keep prisoners in beds. We pay for all of the costs from the arrests to the housing of drug criminals. Legalizing would also take away the bad element of the other economic system that is used by drug lords to perpetuate their businesses and it works against the capitalism that builds the economy. Drugs tear down the economy. “How much regulation do we need?” America is becoming a harder place to do business. We have places to develop businesses, but our incentives are terrible. We need good incentives and a job force waiting to work when businesses start up or grow. How do we change the regulations to be business promoters instead of business stoppers? In a long final approach to the actual forecast, Watkins circled the field with several considerations: • Oregon would do better to create green jobs if they would go to China and clean up one of their factories that pollute. It would have a bigger green impact. • Third world women who are educated stop having too many babies and start producing products: If we support feminism we will support capitalism. • Want to change the world? Stop with the cycles of welfare. People without jobs are not happy. If people work, they are happier. The happiness factor is important to grow the economy. • Oregon’s vigor depends on three components: migration of jobs, farm jobs

and retail construction permits. Central Oregon is better than the rest of the State economically. • Labor force growth is deteriorating because our laborers are moving to jobs elsewhere. • Deschutes County job growth is up but, people are leaving the area/State for living wage jobs elsewhere. • Some places can do well by being great places to be- and that allows Bend to be a place where people want to move- especially for the new consumers (people with money at retirement age who want services but don’t work.) There is a trend for wealthier folks to move to consumption driven areas. It can produce problems, though when they move here and like the place, because they do not want any changes to the status quo and will fight to keep things from changing. When an area becomes overloaded with aging consumers, they will still need workers/people who are there to take care of them as they age and with the college, there are now younger people available. • Consumer density does take away the concept of providing tradable goods because no one works to make any. • Tech impacts all areas of the economy and telecommuting will have a much bigger impact on the future due to changes in technology that allows people access to the internet everywhere. Tech also impacts products. Apps are available now for what used to be tradable goods (i.e. drums to drum machines to apps on an IPhone). Bend is a suitable area for attracting technology, but it is isolated and will need many more airline flights into the airport to make a difference. • What could go wrong? • Complacency is risk #1, but is always temporary. • Higher Education is changing too- Internet Impact on taking classes is risk #2 because it is not stable. OSU will make a difference in this area. Watkins’ final comment was that it is going to be a good year. We will finally see growth that makes a difference in our local economy. He added that the changes from the 2007 recession will mean that looking at the new’ successful numbers’ will be different, but now ½ looks good if it means 5%! In conclusion, it was another eye opening Seminar that examined pertinent parts of the economy and it covered what we should be aware of for the immediate future. If we pay attention to the warnings and points to consider, 2014 is the year where we start to turn around. Reported by Teri Myers La Pine Chamber of Commerce

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! With St Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I am thinking green, wearing green and enjoying an Irish coffee every once in a while to get me ‘in the mood’! My fi rst ever Irish coffee happened at the Buena Vista Bar in San Francisco when I was a young woman. I watched the long time bartender set up his line of drinks- (the Buena Vista is the birthplace of the drink) and since it was the day before St Patrick’s Day, I was enamored of the lore of the drink, the careful preparation the man took and his stories about people who had shared the drinks there with him. He started by setting up the Irish coffee glasses- a sort of a wine glass on a short stem and pouring in boiling water to warm them. As one drink was ordered, he would dump the water, put in exactly two sugar cubes and a generous shot of Irish whiskey- He used Jameson. He would muddle the whiskey in the sugar and add piping hot coffee- about

5 oz. stir it thoroughly, and then he would top it off with slightly sweetened, slightly beaten whip cream (soft peaks) spooned in to cover the drink before service. When he set it in front of me for the fi rst time, the whip cream was thick and cold, I took a sip and as the flavors unfolded in my mouth, I was completely enamored with everything Irish Coffee. I had never tasted a drink like it and it is a distinguished, remarkable edition to our holiday celebrations for all time. I now serve it with a dash of Kahlua and Bailey’s Irish Cream in coffee as a hot Emerald Isle and over the rocks as a cold summer drink and it remains my favorite drink ever! During the winter, when the weather outside is frightful, sitting down with a warming hot Irish Coffee is always a welcome and heartwarming treat. I came up with a new cookie that makes it even better as a dessert option, so add these wonderful big lumps of luciousness:

Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. I used a jar of the new Chocolate Cappuccino JIF, 2 sticks of butter or margarine, and four eggs, creamed together with 1-1/3 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar (sugar adds chew to cookies and more flour makes them crisper).
