Pink Ladies The Pink Ladies were the winners of the Sunriver Mudslinger Best Dressed Contest. After running the one mile and half obstacle course in the mud in their poodle skirts and soft pink T-shirts, they blew bubble gum for the camera. With a round of the loudest applause, the crowd determined them as Best Dressed. The four friends entered the Mudslinger event for the first time because they thought it would be fun. These four friends are from Bend and Redmond. In the photo, from left to right are Lorinda Tiller, Brandy Mills, Tracie Young, and Elgie Riekie. Lorinda made all of the Pink Ladies’ costumes. She describes herself as a fan of the 50’s. Lorinda is a well established nail tech at a high maintenance salon in Bend, Oregon.

Brandy is the owner of Lollipop Kids, an In-Home Registered Family Childcare in Bend. Tracie said what they all felt, “once we set foot in the mud there was no turning back. Elgie is part of the organization for the Philipino community. They all had a great time running in the Mudslinger obstacle course and described it as “an adventure that provided great accomplishment in style!” “We all had a great time and will do it again! Gotta be a kid sometimes,” says Lorinda.

Lorinda Tiller displays her team’s name on the back of her costume. She created and sewed all the teams costumes.

Second Annual Sunriver Mudslinger a Massive Success By Brooke Snavely, Sunriver Scene Photography by Lee Schaefer

Sunriver – Eight hundred people got dirty during the second annual Sunriver Mudslinger, March 23 in the Great Meadow in Sunriver. Participation more than doubled over the inaugural event held a year ago. Weather may have been a factor with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 50s. Some participants sought relief from their exertions by lingering in the mud pits. Race organizers sent out seven waves of participants to give everyone time and space to traverse the 1.5-mile course which featured mud trenches, balance beams, rope crossings, wall climbs, hurdles, a tunnel and a calisthenics challenge. The first wave of participants ran through the course against the clock. Matt Wright, a Sunriver firefighter, completed the course in 10 minutes and 44 seconds. Jason Townsend finished second in 10:51 and Sloane Anderson was third with a time of 11:22. Marissa Vaternick was the top female competitor in a time of 15 minutes and 14 seconds. Second place went to Mashonda Clayton Coemr in 16:51 who edged Christina McLaughlin by one second. Mclaughlin finished with a time of 16:52. The top three male and female finishers received Mudslinger t-shirts and growlers of Sunriver Brewing Company beer as prizes. Prizes were also awarded for best costume. The “Pink Ladies,” adorned in pink poodle skirts and black tights, were chosen by the audience as Best Dressed and, somehow, they stayed fairly clean. A total of 600 people over age 12 participated in the Mudslinger, with 190 participants ages 11 and under. Many families participated as teams and helped each other over and through the obstacles. All participants received Mudslinger dog tags with the date of the event stamped upon them and a coupon for a drink to slake their thirst or warm up with coffee or hot chocolate, whatever suited their need. The

Sunriver Fire Department provided a free shower rinse off. Some of the Mudslinger proceeds will be distributed to the La Pine / Sunriver Relay for Life, La Pine High School Junior ROTC and the Sunriver Police Department’s Shop With a Cop program. Organizers are already planning next year’s Mudslinger for March 22, 2015 the first Sunday of Oregon spring break. Many competitors were overhead saying they will be back with friends and families.

Mudslinger Danielle Patrick SUNRIVER By Danielle Patrick Mudslinger, Fitness Instructor What do you do when your only child goes off to college? No more sports, no more family dinners, no more focusing on your kid….. well I decided to follow one of the dreams I have had since I was 20 years old. I signed up for a Figure Competition! Figure is just one of the divisions in Female Bodybuilding. I like to describe it as lean, feminine muscle. And boy has it given me a new focus!! I started my training in August at the suggestion that I join a friend who had already signed on with a coaching duo from Bend. I had so many excuses that at first I told her no. I was too old, had too many tattoos, couldn’t possibly follow the strict diet and I had saddle bags I just knew would never go away. After looking into it more I changed my mind and hired IFBB Pro Victoria Adelus and Josh Field, the coaches of Team ABC in Bend. Yes, the workouts are tough, the diet is very strict and I am still working on those saddle bags, but it is so worth it. I am pushing myself harder both mentally and physically than I ever imagined. Now, only 7 weeks from my competition I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe it or not, my love of fitness only happened about 6 years ago. I was approaching my 20 year class reunion and wanted to look good so I started attending a local Bootcamp style class and started working out at the gym. Then along came my 40th birthday so I kept the momentum going so I would be Fabulous in my Forties! I discovered that I loved working out! Now at the age of 45 (yikes how did that happen?) I cannot imagine my life without fitness. I am a certified Schwinn Spin

Instructor, certified Turbo Kick Instructor, teach a Bootcamp class at The Fit Zone 3 to 4 times a week and if that wasn’t enough I am about to become certified to teach Insanity. I currently weight train 5 days a week, and love participating in obstacle mud runs. I just did the Sunriver Mudslinger run for the second time and have done the Warrior Dash twice with my husband and son and am registered to do it again this fall. Before you think “does this woman just have all day to exercise?” the answer is no! I work full time as a Hair Dresser and have for the past 10 years. I am the owner of Kroma Hair Design in La Pine and have an awesome clientele. I love hanging with my hubby of 21 years in the evenings and on the weekends. I just find the time to get my workouts in to fit my schedule. So many of us women put ourselves on the back burner and put our families front and center. I am here to tell you – you are worth it and living a healthy lifestyle will help ensure that you will be around for your kids for a long, long time. Now I am not saying everyone should go to the extreme that I do but why not join a gym, walk or run a 5k, sign up for a mud run or attend fitness classes? And better yet, involve your family!! Kids love to Zumba, walk, ride bikes and be active with their parents, and you are instilling healthy values that will last a lifetime. Take it from me, you are never too old, too busy or too out of shape to start some sort of fun, fitness activity!

Denfeld is an experienced journalist and death penalty investigator. She has written three works of nonfiction on important topics. Hemingway had something to say about writing fiction “All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you.... If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.” - The Enchanted is Denfeld’s foray into this truer truth found in works of fiction. Golden horses run under the stone foundation of the old prison, their eyes wild, manes flowing, molten heat emanating from their bodies as they run.  An inmate on death row leads the reader into the world of fantasy only he sees and the stark, violent reality of prison life.   He watches as an unnamed lady researches the lives of killers sentenced to die, finding clues in their backgrounds that might grant them the leniency of life in prison over death.  The secrets she holds close permit her an uncanny understanding of the natures of her clients.  A fallen priest comforts the inmates and watches the lady, wondering if she might possess redemption for him.  Haunting and beautifully written, this is a powerhouse story and we are honored to present Rene Denfeld. Saturday April 26th at 5:00 PM Elizabeth Eslami presents Hibernate, a collection of short stories and winner of the Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction. Jocko Hollow is a story about two brothers who spent childhood afternoons fishing in a sun dappled

Parviz’s sisters want new noses; he is persuaded to go along to take care of them. The family left Iran for the USA; this is his first trip back. Parviz has a wife and child, but no job so he is elected as he has time to be away. He learns a bit about himself, his life, and his sisters. Victory Forge is a young man’s genesis from carefree y o u n g brother to soldier and his sister’s reaction as she feels her brother slipping away into a darker reality. Sour Milk has a young man born into poverty with a father who will soon be gone, and a mother who should have given reproduction a pass. He grows up to be a solitary fellow who dreams of a better life and struggles against the reality of his options. Continuity in Filmmaking is told through the perspective of a woman’s trying to understand the new reality of her situation as she sits home waiting for Geoffrey. He trains dogs for the movies, relating more to the canines than people. Adwok, Pantokrator is a hauntingly beautiful story about a boy whose mother is accused of an indiscretion causing all sorts of cracks in the fault lines of his family’s life. Eventually he emigrates from Sudan to the US where he begins to understand and thus understanding realizes how little we truly control. Author events are free and everyone is welcome.

Reflecting on the Importance SUNRIVER of the Sunriver Plan Article and photos submitted by Jennifer Curtis, Nature Center Manager

Sunriver is a beautiful community nestled within the trees where thousands of visitors a year can view local flora and fauna, float the meandering Deschutes River and enjoy breathtaking mountain views. From its inception, developers and designer John Gray, Don McCallum and Robert Royston, set out to create a community where man and nature would co-exist. Through strict building regulations centered on environmentally conscious decisions, Gray, McCallum and Royston shaped a unique destination that blended retreat, recreation and respect for Sunriver’s natural environment.

In 1968, Jim Anderson, Sunriver’s first Resident Naturalist and founder of the Sunriver Nature Center became employed by Sunriver Properties Inc to take on the responsibility of “educating residents, guests, and staff of Sunriver about the importance of environmental concern”. Despite the absence of a formal education center (later built in 1982), Anderson led classes and trips for residents and visitors to teach them of the value of the environment that surrounded them. Originally termed “The Ecologium” the Sunriver Nature Center was constructed along the banks of Lake Aspen, opening up an environmental facility where residents and visitors could ask questions about local flora and fauna while being exposed to the natural world that surrounded them. The Sunriver Nature Center sits on several acres of wildlife refuge land that is guaranteed to be untouched by developers for years to come. This beautiful facility is supported by its original founder, his successor Jay Bowerman, the Board of Directors, an army of volunteers, our members, and thousands of visitors that walk through the Centers doors each year. Our biggest financial supporter (providing the Center over 40% of our operating income) is the Second Tern thrift store, a third arm of our organization that sustains us while helping local families by providing low cost clothing, household goods, furniture, electronics, and even the occasional car. The biggest surprise, to me at least, is that the Second Tern is run almost completely by a large number of dedicated volunteers that spend multiple hours a week unpacking goods, sorting, pricing, lifting, and providing polite customer service to their customers day after day. Without their generous support and belief in our organization we would be unable to inspire as many people as we do every year. In addition to our volunteers, the Nature Centers staff of educated and enthusiastic naturalists have important roles to play. We answer wildlife questions, take in and care for injured wildlife, serve as a community resource for local environmental issues all while making people smile, kids squeal with excitement, and adults feel like children again. We reach out to the community, we show compassion and we love our jobs. As with all that have come before us, we don’t participate in the success of our organization for the sole purpose of financial stability. We have a deep rooted desire to share our passion about nature with everyone we encounter. There is

truly something unique about the Nature Center. We are a family. Even in 2013, we all have the unique and awe-inspiring privilege of knowing our founder, Jim Anderson and his successor, Jay Bowerman. We have the opportunity to ask for advice, hear stories from earlier times and stand in their light. Words from a current naturalist describes the center as a place with a rare opportunity for one person to have the ability to teach so many people in so many different walks of life. We maintain our original mission “to inspire present and future generations to cherish and understand our natural world” through these small connections. There are few science/nature education facilities in Central Oregon that you can engage one-on-one with a naturalist, ask to hold a snake or have one of our staff offer to show you around the nature trail on the search for our resident porcupine. As was intended in the beginning, the Nature Center still serves as a steward to the environment while educating visitors and residents about protecting what was originally intended to protect. Sunriver as a whole has maintained the same values that were woven into the original plan. I think John Gray, Robert Royston, Don McCallum, and Jim Anderson would be proud of who we have become and who we still plan to be.

making a comfortable space for each of us to sleep. Most 3 & 4 season tents are quite small, so best to camp with close friends!! Small gas powered stoves were used to make hot drinks and to cook up some surprisingly good freeze dried food. Sleeping in a quality sleeping bag with a few layers of clothes will also help to get a good nights sleep. The best trick I learned on this trip was to melt some snow...boil the water and put the water in a Nalgene bottle. Seal this up tight and keep it at the inside foot pocket of you sleeping bag. This little trick was new to me, and worked remarkably well in keeping my feet and legs warm. It was great weather on this trip to the summit of Tumalo, so we took the opportunity to explore the area by snowmobile and snow shoes. Upon nightfall came an incredible sunset followed by a full moon. The lights from Bend and Sunriver were shining in the distance to complete a great view from the top. After a fairly quiet night we awoke to blue skies and another day of fun-filled snow activity. As with any winter excursion be sure to be on the lookout for any dangers. Avalanche, tree wells and hidden fumaroles. These fumaroles are steam vents that are very common in the vicinity of the Mt. Bachelor area. With the proper equipment a night or two camping in the snow can be quite comfortable and fun. There are also some wooden

With our gear list checked and packs filled to the top with gear, we loaded up the snowmobiles for the quick trip to the trail head. Dutchman Snow Park would be our starting point for our trip up Tumalo Mountain where trail #5 leads to a little known trail that is not even numbered on the map. The snowmobile map just states this trail as; “Most Difficult” & “Steep Un-groomed Trail”!! There are many safer and more protected areas to snow camp in the Deschutes National Forest and surrounding areas, but the summit of Tumalo Mountain was our destination for this trip! After navigating the steep terrain to access the top of the peak we were awarded with a stunning view of the peaks of the Three Sisters and Mount Bachelor. This mixed use area is shared with motorized as well as non-motorized winter travelers. Be aware of boundary lines between some of the non-motorized areas that are in the area. Once a suitable area was chosen for our tent we set out to dig a trench around the tent itself so that colder air would settle into that space. It doesn’t seem like much, but it does help keep a tent warmer. Another trick is to tie guy lines from the tent to the middle of a tent stake and bury the stake in the snow sideways and pour water on it so that it freezes in place. This will keep any wind from pulling out any stakes. Once the tent was set up and secure we set to

Sunriver Brewing Company Opens New Brewery

By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter The Craft Brewing Industry contributed $33.9 Billion to the US Economy in 2012. According to Brewers Association, the industry also provided more than 360,000 jobs, with 108,440 jobs directly at breweries and brewpubs, including serving staff at brewpubs. It was July 4th of 2012 that Marc and Brian Cameron started a new endeavor, Sunriver Brewing Company, and opened the Brewhouse Restaurant in the Village at Sunriver. The restaurant/pub gained instant popularity and exceeded all expectations. In the beginning they shared brewing space with another brewer in Redmond. Their proprietary recipes included the famous Gramma’s Pale Ale and a couple more recipes that supplied the 4 tap handles at the Pub.

Ryan Duley, Director of Sales and Marketing (left) and Brian Cameron, Owner of Sunriver Brewing Company (right). From the beginning there was always a plan of opening up a production site somewhere in South County, but the thought was it would be a couple years down the road. Ryan Duley, Director of Sales and Marketing said, “When we saw how well we were being received (at the Brewhouse), we decided to bump it up… to get a production site going quicker than previously planned. One day Brian was picking his son up from day care at New Generations and spotted a for Continued page 11

They have done that by making a commitment to produce the best tasting and highest quality beer, and delivering it in a friendly atmosphere at the Sunriver Brewhouse that is known by its high-quality food and beer selections, coupled with outrageous customer service that is hard to beat anywhere.

Middle Fork Democratic Club Formed

August 1-2-3, 2014


By Georgi Samuelson

The Middle Fork Democratic Club held its first meeting on March 16th at the Brewers Union 180 Pub on 1st Street in Oakridge. This group is forming to respond to a need for grass roots participation in the democratic process by the people of the Middle Fork area. “This is what living in a democracy is all about.” said one of the organizers. That area encompasses those residing in Dexter and Lowell to those residing in Oakridge and Westfir and the rural environs. The initial meeting was attended by about 25 residents of the Middle Fork area as well as several Eugene area supporters. Our State Legislator Senator Floyd Prozanski spoke encouragingly of the need for grass-roots participation in our area and reported on the just completed short

session of the Oregon State Legislature. Three candidates for East Lane County Commissioner then spoke. Kevin Matthews, Jose Ortel and Joann Ernst provided accounts of their qualifications and agendas for the East Lane County Commissioner post. Questions and discussion followed.The candidates will run first in the May 3rd_ May 20th State Primary election for East Lane County Commissioner along with the current incumbent Faye Stewart. This group will meet every 2 months with the next meeting to be in May and will have rotating group leader/hosts. Sara Altemus will be a co-host for the May meeting. Everyone in the Middle Fork area is invited to upcoming meetings. You can contact the Middle Fork Democratic Club at for further information re: meeting dates and programs. Alternatively those interested in more information about our new group may also telephone Georgi Samuelson at 541-782-1156.

Being involved in this community has made me a stronger person. After only living here for a short period I have learned a lot about this town and its history. I am so amazed on how many people have devoted their own time to make this place even more beautiful than it already is.” Sara and her family moved here almost three years ago.

Dream to Skate Pancake Breakfast - a Sweet Event

Pancake Eating Contest La Pine Park and Rec District raises money at Pancake Breakfast and Makes Changes for the Future By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter The week in the mirror at the LPRD was full of all kinds of activities. Executive Director, Bob Schulz turned in his resignation for the end of May and the board met to decide what steps they will take to insure continuity of their District.

At the Saturday Pancake Breakfast, the Dream to Skate Committee was pleased with the great turnout for “All you can eat pancakes” at the La Pine Park and Recreation Community Center. Organizer, LPRD Board member, Sharon Walling told the Eagle that her students sold blocks LPRD page 20

By Sandra Jones, Eagle Reporter The Pancake Breakfast Skate Park Fundraiser was a success for the community. As people arrived ready to eat all you can eat pancakes, they were delighted. Hospitality was extended cordially by the youth of La Pine to the breakfast guests. Guests were seated and served delicious sausage and pancakes. As Joel from Harvest Depot poured and flipped pancakes, volunteers in the kitchen kept the food coming. Guests were given all they could eat pancakes and sausage. Skate Park youth supporters served guests and bussed tables. The youths made sure everyone had enough coffee, juice, syrup, and pancakes on their plates. People came from the local area as well as Lane County to attend and support La Pine’s new skate park. A group from Oakridge, lead by Gary Carl of Oakridge Guest Lodge, came out to “crash” the event. They donated prizes for the raffle. The Oakridge folks also got time on the mic, and challenged La Pine to come to their Ukelele Festival, Keg and Cask Festival, and Concerts in the Park this summer (see Oakridge section for dates and times). Stu Martinez and Sharon Walling lead the breakfast. They announced raffle and door prize winners and gave out prizes. The highlight was when the contestants joined in the Pancake Eating contest.

Adult Education Program Receives Grant By Ellen Currie, Eagle Reporter The Greater La Pine Adult Education Program has been given a generous grant from the Sunriver Rotary to assist in funding a General Educational Development (GED) education program starting this fall. On January 2, 2014, the GED Testing Service unveiled a NEW set

of tests that provide the opportunity to earn a high school credential, but it also measures career- and college-readiness skills. Because the tests have been upgraded, anyone preparing to take the GED tests that did not complete the testing requirements by December 31, 2013 is subject to the NEW test requirements and must retake all four tests. The GED preparation classes will be held at the La Pine Community Center and will instruct students in all 4 subject areas tested: Mathematical Reasoning,

Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Social Studies, and Science. These four content areas measure core knowledge and skills that will help successful students get a better job, start post-high school training, or apply to college. The GED Education Program offered in La Pine will also include plans for transportation to the testing center in Redmond as well as support for testing fees. The dates for student pre-assessment and class start dates will be announced sometime this summer. If you have questions about the GED Education Program or would like to help support this program, please contact Malia Sathrum at malia.sathrum@ or via telephone at 541536-5138. Thank you, Sunriver Rotary, for your generosity and commitment to our community.

Those are great odds and FireFree encourages residents to take that bet and get prepared for the upcoming wildfire season. Now is the time to clean up your yards and create defensible spaces around homes and recycle that debris at FireFree collection sites FOR FREE in Deschutes and Jefferson Counties.

FireFree reminds you to take a look around your property in the “home ignition zone” where glowing embers can ignite spot fires and vulnerable areas like decks, patios and fences that can spread flames to your home. And take advantage of upcoming FireFree Recycling Events to dispose of the debris for FREE. Where are your most vulnerable places for glowing embers to ignite your home? • Are your gutters and roof valleys free from debris like pine needles and leaves? Clean them out. Despite a metal or asphalt shingle roof, the buildup of gutter debris provides necessary fuel for the glowing embers to ignite adjacent fascia boards or siding – most often made of wood. • Do your shrubs and weeds provide a path of fuel for fire to reach your trees or home? Reduce shrubs and other “ladder fuels” around your home to reduce the threat of ground fires igniting nearby trees, or your home. • What can catch fire on your deck or patio or near your fence? Remove weeds, shrubs or any combustible materials from around, under or on top of your deck, patio or wood fence. This includes toys, planters, construction materials, patio furniture and cushions along with even small piles of pine needles or leaves. • Is your wood pile near your home or other combustible vegetation? Move wood piles at least 20 feet away from your home or other combustibles. Visit the FireFree website at www. for more information about how you can prepare your property for wildfire season.

Start with a walk around your lawn, to the grass roots. For smaller yards, or observing its overall condition. Pick for concentrated trouble spots, consider up broken branches, sticks and debris using a manual aerating tool. For a larger that may have accumulated over the lawn, consider renting a power aerator. If you applied fertilizer in the fall winter months. Make note of areas that need attention due to disease and/or turf then an early spring application is not necessary. If you neglected to apply damage.

Leaf Spot on Quaking Aspens Continued from above, right

The leaves of the aspen will have brown/ blackish spots on them. They will first appear in the spring as small brown spots or flecks and will increase in size as the growing season progresses. Severe outbreaks can cause foliar browning in midsummer and nearly complete defoliation by early August. The pathogen for this disease is a fungus, Marssonina brunnea, that overwinters in fallen leaves. M. brunnea will infect a tree after leaves emerge in spring when wind and rain disperses the fungus. To alleviate overwintering of the fungal spores, it is important to completely dispose of all leaves. They should not be composted, nor used in any manner in the landscape. What can you do if your aspen trees had “black leaf spot” this past spring and summer? At bud break, just as the leaves start to emerge, spray with a fungicide. Spray again after the leaves have fully emerged. You can purchase liquid fungicides in a concentrate, or in a ready to use spray container.

Newberry Eagle - La Pine, Oregon

100% of Donations to Benefit Local Cancer Patients

March 20, 2014 Our communities have raised over $135,000, helping 606 local Central Oregon cancer patients receive assistance. The demand continues to increase and more help is needed. Visit: CAN Cancer, Community Assistance for Neighbors with Cancer, helps Central Oregonians who are battling cancer with day-to-day living expenses. Funds raised have helped local families with their utilities, gas cards, rent assistance, hotel stays and grocery cards. 100% of the money stays local and 100% of the funds raised goes to the patient. This spring, the garbage haulers will mail out a CAN Cancer envelope in their billing statements asking customers to help pitch-in with a donation. The group of Central Oregon Garbage Haulers includes: Bend Garbage & Cascade Disposal - High Country Prineville Madras Sanitary Wilderness “This is our sixth year sending out our envelopes and each year we are amazed at the support we receive from our customers and our communities,” Brad Bailey, Bend Garbage & Recycling President. “People

who could only afford to donate a couple dollars to an event raising money for our cause; collectively has totaled over $135,000. It goes to show that every dollar CAN make a difference.”


CAN Cancer is relying on the Central Oregon community and the Central Oregon Haulers’ customers to ‘Pitch- In’ and together we will be able to CAN Cancer! Customers can watch for their CAN Cancer envelope in their garbage billing statement. Or donate online at www. Donations to CAN Cancer are tax deductible.

It takes every ounce of physical and emotional strength for the patient and family to go through this journey. Funds from CAN Cancer can help with the food, gas, lodging, utilities, and any miscellaneous needs they might have. Best of all it helps folks in our own community as well as all communities in Central Oregon and Harney County. Our community has been so generous.

The Community School after school program has grown by leaps and bounds during the past few months, with almost 200 students involved with the tutoring, and after school enrichment classes and activities. Recently, a few of the archery students placed in district competition and now they are taking on cooking classes, Spanish and assorted games and sports activities. All of these classes are under adult supervision and organization and planning. As a cost that is so low that anyone can afford to send their children to the after school program, they are also preparing to expand into the elementary grades! The soccer program is filling up for spring. Every year the program teaches basics and skills building while they coach for local competition. It seems like lots of fun for the participants, with many returning each year for more action at LPRD Soccer!

New United Way Board Member - Kathy Agan Kathy Agan, a member of the La Pine City Council, has been elected to serve a three year term on the Board of Directors of the United Way of Deschutes County. This is the result of a concerted effort on the part of United Way of Deschutes County to have representation from south county/La Pine as part of their discussions, activities and actions. United Way staff and volunteers talked with leaders in the greater La Pine area and Kathy’s name was presented as a person who will well represent the needs and views of the area and its citizens. The Board of United Way of Deschutes County is made up of 33 individuals who each serve on one of seven committees. Kathy has chosen to serve on the Community Impact

Committee which is the group that visits each of the 26 partner agencies, deliberates and makes allocation recommendations to the board. Kathy realizes that not all members of this community are aware of how United Way is already supporting services in La Pine including Community Kitchen and St. Vincent de Paul. She hopes to not only represent this community to United Way but also to represent United Way in our community. When asked about her reaction to this position she said, “United Way has welcomed me to the table and they are looking forward to learning more about La Pine and our programs.”

A Day in the Life of a Pencil

By Lauren James

Hey, I’m a pencil. You may think that being a pencil for a girl who is in 5th grade is fun but, it’s not as fun as you may think it might be. I get stuck in her desk and other places that aren’t pleasant. Sometimes she chews gum and sticks it on me, not to mention having my head put in a pencil sharpener all the time. Allow me to begin my story with how my day went today. First I was inside her desk all night since about 8:45 last night. When I woke up I was in her sticky little fingers from having toast with jam on it for breakfast. Then she put me in her cold, dark backpack as she does every single day. Then I waited in that cold, dark backpack for about an hour then we set off to school for an adventure waiting for us and we would soon experience it. When we got to school

she sauntered to the classroom and took me out of the cold, dark backpack and into the classroom. Then she put me in her desk for another 30 minutes. Then took me out of that sinkhole excuse for a desk and slammed me down on her hard wooden desk. It was time for me to help her complete her math problems. But she was pushing on me so hard the tip of my lead broke and she had to sharpen me for the first time out of 10 million today. First she took me off her desk, walked over to the electric pencil sharpener (P.S. the See Pencil page 25 electric one hurts

By Pam Cosmo, Granger Twice now, one of our chickens has laid an egg that is just jaw-droppingly big. Note the picture. It is an example of the surprises that come with raising your own chickens. This will become clear to you as you attend the 4th Annual Chicken Coop, Greenhouse & Garden Tour coming up in August of this year. Planning is in full force for the event. Right now, we are hoping to add new hosts to the tour. I encourage anyone who has a vegetable garden or greenhouse or who raises chickens to contact Dave Coen at 1-503-910-8926. We will showcase your efforts toward food localization and help to educate the community in supplementing healthy food into our diets. Plus, it is a lot of fun! The Little Deschutes Grange is also the home base for the Brown Bag food giveaway program organized by Neighborhood Impact on the last Friday of each month. There is no eligibility test, so anyone who wants it can go in and pick up a grocery bag full of fresh produce and bread.

Going Live on the Radio with Ned and Sheri Ward

Pencil Continued from page 23 more than hand pencil sharpeners) and stuck me in. Then the buzzing noise started and the pencil sharpener blade was spinning at the speed of light. The pencil sharpener was now at work fixing me. When she was finally finished she used me for the rest of math class and put me in her desk again. I was in there for another 15 minutes or so and then was brought out again and put into someone else’s desk. I guess I was stolen! But pencils don’t have legs, arms, hands or even brains so I couldn’t escape! So I waited in there for another 7 or 8 minutes and was taken out by the thief and was put into the teacher’s hand. I guess she was borrowing me from the stealer- thinking I belonged to him. Finally I was given back to the enemy. Then my owner came and pulled on me. Apparently she saw me in his hands and wanted me back. The thief was pulling too. They were fighting over me! Just then they both let go and I went flying across the room. I landed in the sink. It was bad. I almost went down the drain when a kid ran to get me. I was returned back to my owner. After that she used me for 30 minutes

of unique Golden Oldies and old country music with the addition of favorite DooWop hits of yesteryear- and they offer the listeners a ‘one of a kind mix’ of music. There are several weekly features to their program: Featured artist of the week, Start your Week Toe Tappers and the original Double Play and their favorite? Is the Country Doo-Wop juke box! This is a fast paced, lot of fun music show and they are happy to be here, broadcasting from the La Pine studio to give listeners what they want. You can go on their Facebook pagethe Country Doo-Wop radio Show and tell them what you would like to hear or call in live Monday 10-12 541-3231774. The Monday repeats on Saturday at 2-4PM. “We would like to invite you to take a listen or join us on Mondays in the Studio live and on air for a good time,” Ned invited.

straight. Her hands got really sweaty and hot from holding on to me so she slid a pencil grip on me. It was her lunch when she left for 45 more minutes. When she got back they had to take a very important test. I knew what was coming and I guessed right. Whenever there is a big test she always chews on my eraser. It hurts and is really annoying. She was finally finished with her test so she put me away and listened to the teacher for about 10 minutes and then got me out again. I’m guessing they were doing poetry because my led tip was scratching out some rhymes. After that she put me away in her desk for another 30 minutes and then I was put in her backpack. On the bus ride home she took me out again to start her homework. When she got back home she started to write a story with me and didn’t stop until dinner. After dinner she finished her homework, took a shower and went to bed. So take my advice. Never be a pencil whatever you may want to believe. I have to go now because it’s now the time I get to sleep and get ready for another day in the life of a pencil.

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter Put together a few songs, some words of encouragement and the hosts of the Original Country Doo-Wop Show, have put together a list of songs that show people of their age group a little history of music. “We are tagged as Yesterday’s country/and the doo-wop hits of the 50s and 60s,” Ned explained. After eight years on a radio station in Bend, Ned and Sheri got married and decided to do this work together. “We like KITC-FM radio because it is community minded and it allows the freedom to program our own show,” says Sheri. So far, the duo has two shows each week on Monday morning and Saturday afternoon. On the World Wide Web, they pull in listeners from all over the United States, Europe and Australia.

Counseling Services to Become a Part of La Pine Full Time By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

During the last few months, Deschutes County has been working hand in hand with the folks at the La Pine Community Health Center to create and expand behavioral health services in Newberry Country. In an interview with the new coordinator for the area, Dr. Michelle Cox, PhD, she told of a time when she came over to La Pine (she has a cabin here) and she was shopping in the ACE store when a young teen began display erratic behavior that led to kicking and other destructive acts. She asked who they needed to contact, and although the employees were busy getting the young woman to move away from other customers and out of the store, the employee could only shake her head and reply that there was nothing they could do. The Sheriff perhaps, but no contact for help for a child who was going through a psychotic break. When she realized that she would be coming here to live, she contacted the County and found out as much as she could about the services in our La Pine area and with some real effort she found

herself working with Deschutes County for part of the time and that is when the real work began. With the thousands of people who live in the south part of Deschutes County- as well as those who live in North Klamath or North Lake who could potentially find a need for counseling, she discovered that there was nothing available for young children and the idea of working with families was barely a blip on the radar. Dr. Cox was a professor at George Fox College and OSU and instead of working in the academic class room; she decided that the need was so great that she would make the leap to clinical work. She has gone to the SCOOTR folks for a grant of $1000 to set up a children’s’ therapy room. She has negotiated with the Health Center to work to get physical symptoms handled with some immediacy. She is also constructing a new family counseling area with couches and chairs and family friendly atmosphere so that all of the nine new fulltime staff and admin support as well as clinicians at the health center that

The New Senior By T. Myers

Spring Brings Hope and Difficulties With spring comes hope for some and problems for others. What a downer of a sentence! Both aspects can be true- if difficult to accept. Let me explain. First, we all look forward to longer days, warmer afternoons, a few bulbs peeking through and a sample of what is to about to come during the precious summers that are so beautiful here. If you have been looking over the ground during the past two weeks, you may have seen the sunlight dappling the forest floor with spots of brightness, encouraging plants and flowers to come out and join in the springtime fun, but, when I think of the fact that snowfall has been minimal and water levels are low, I also know that this summer may challenge our area with water shortages and, of course in our area, forest fi res are always a concern. Second, after this winter, there are lots of skiers who spent precious dollars on those lift tickets that promised runs down the snow covered mountains and what happened? Snow came in bursts and some ski resorts only opened briefly, fighting for every customer they could glean, and now, with the turn in temperature, there may be a few rain showers that turn to snow, but it is too late to make up for lost time. Third, during the colder months, people in La Pine are careful about venturing out into the wild. Basically speaking, anytime there is weird weather, everyone shuts down. The people around here go to the store for supplies and they stay inside. Events have seen a decline in attendance over the winter months and if we see unusual weather this spring, it will continue to happen. For those of us who have cabin fever, we wait for the first rays of sunshine to push out of our cocoons

to breathe a little fresh air and catch a bit of sun on our faces- so it cannot come soon enough. A note about the lady I have written about in past stories in the Eagle. Teri Garner continues to fight leaving her longtime home at Snowy River RV Park on Solar Dr. People have come forward with wood, groceries, a heater, errand service and other helpful things to make it easier for her, but her time is drawing to a close on her property. When she lost her battle with her ex companion and the court decided to evict her and put her home on the auction block, the winter months became a refuge for her, time wise, anyway. Now, it seems that with the spring, the authorities are thinking about her and the court decision to have her vacate. I will follow what happens as it unfolds, but with the hope of spring in our own hearts, be sure that someone close to us all is dealing with the difficulty that a new season will bring down on her story. With the opening of the soon to be named Family Counseling services here in the South County Building, there will be a place for folks who are having a difficult time to get help locally. The coordinator, Dr. Michelle Cox, has been working to set up Children’s Counseling, Family Counseling, and in the future, teen and group counseling as part of the possibilities. Having a connection to the La Pine Community Health Center with referrals between the two agencies and a connection to immediate medical services will be a standard part of the services that are offered by both the clinic and the center. This is a great Spring gift to our community- and one that will ultimately make a big difference in how we move forward with services we need in our area.

Dr. Michelle Cox will open a new Family counseling center in the South County Building in La Pine. will be seeing people and referring them to the new (name to be determined) Newberry Counseling Services Center at the South County Building. Dr. Cox is ready to go to work to help La Pine/Sunriver and all of the

surrounding communities. While Cox finishes her offices, you can still reach help by calling the La Pine Health Center.541-536-3435 for information about behavioral services in South County.

FOOD & RECIPES It is official. With the turn of the vernal equinox on March 20th, we are officially in spring! I was in Portland last weekend and you would not believe the color of the blooming trees and bulbs and flowers that are decorating the city. The air was filled with an intoxicating mix of floral scents and everywhere you looked, people were outside working in their gardens. After a winter- that to say the least- has been filled with strange weather and a lot of indoor activities, it is time for us to lighten our menus, get outside and enjoy any of the sunny days we have. Easter comes on the 20th. Passover begins on the 15th and Earth Day falls on the 22nd, so no matter what you are preparing for, there are some needs for the foodie in you to make an appearance! Several months ago, a friend sent me a recipe for Angel food cake that

is made with 2 ingredients: a box of angel food cake mix and a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple with the juice left in. You grease and flour the pan. Mix the two ingredients together and bake in a medium oven until the top is golden brown. It is amazing and light and delicious for the spring table. Shopping for spring ingredients is always a treat after a long winter. Asparagus bundles, great lettuces, baby spinach, spring onions, radishes and carrots are available and waiting for you to create a good side dish of salad for dinner. I love to pair a crisp salad with a piece of salmon or white fish for a light meal. Add bread and butter and you have everything but that slice of cake covered with strawberries and whip cream for dessert. I am thinking ahead to Easter Dinner. I love my Ham and Lamb so choose one and serve fresh spring

peas, salad, cheesy Au Gratin potatoes and a light lemony gelatin dessert like Paradise Pudding made from lemon Jell-O, sliced almonds, maraschino cherries and loads of whipped cream for a complete surprise to your guests. For Earth Day- this year falling on a Tuesday, it is a great time to use organic foods, grains, legumes and create a vegetarian or even a vegan meal to celebrate the sustainability of vegetable cuisine. If you go online and look for recipes that are vegetarian or vegan, you will be amazed at the

creative things that you can cook at reasonable cost to you and your family and there is a big bonus! Most of the foods you use will be full of nutrients and good for your health! Passover is always a challenge, because of the specific dietary requirements that need to be followed. Roast lamb, new potatoes, mixed carrots and peas, assorted fruits and crudités are all appropriate. You cannot mix meat and dairy. (No butter or milk gravy, etc. Use margarine instead!) And you may not use leavening for your baked goods, so often you will serve flat, unleavened bread or matzo crackers. There is the additional tradition of setting out a platter with bitter herbs, boiled eggs and other noted foods that show the traditional history of the Passover season through time. Mind you, you will not be kosher, but you can observe the traditions and make it a special time to learn about the Jewish culture and their celebratory foods. April is the crossover season here in our area. We leave winter and find ourselves with longer days to enjoy the extra light. It does not mean it will be warm and sunny, but it will be a time to grow- with your menu planning and your garden! Bon Appetit!

Huntington Road. The Rodeo Queen crowned the new Miss Frontier Days watched by dozens of supporters and throughout the afternoon over a hundred locals came in to have a bite of corned beef, enjoy a glass of something refreshing and spend time visiting in the spacious room. Everyone is excited about the new big Visitors Center space. There is plenty of seating, displays of various Oregon locations and helpful volunteers who are there to help you find things to do in Central Oregon. Although we concentrate on La Pine and the surrounding areas, we now have a wonderful four part display covering our state and we even have information from Washington, Idaho and California! Now that we have combined four of the most used and looked for centers in one space, we are also able to have representatives to handle Eagle Newspaper questions, Frontier Days qvuestions and broadcast right over the radio from inside our building. With the Chamber manning the Visitor Center, we should be able to really help the folks who come in for information. If you missed the big celebration, please stop in and see our new space. Our regular hours are 10-2 and we will be expanding our hours when the weather gets warmer. See you soon!

Real Estate Lifestyles and Trends By Heather Dietrich, Broker Will mortgage rates actually rise in 2014? No one can be certain when predicting the future but mortgage rate analysts are expecting mortgage rates to climb in 2014. In their latest forecast, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) predicts that the 30-year fixed rate will reach 4.8 percent by the second quarter of 2014. The MBA further estimates that the mortgage rate will reach 5 percent during the third quarter. This will mark the first time interest rates have hit 5 percent since 2010. What is causing the rise in rates? Those knowledgeable in the industry point to the gradual reduction of the Federal government’s bond purchasing program as being one of the key reasons for the increase in mortgage rates. The program once accounted for $85 billion in purchases each month

but has now scaled back to $75 billion a month. It is predicted that interest rates will climb as the purchasing program is continually scaled back. The program is expected to end sometime this year. What does all of this mean for home buyers? While these forecasts are dependent upon the continued downsizing of the bond purchasing program and the strengthening of the economy, it is expected that investors will find the best mortgage rates available early in the year. The home loan market will shift from refinancing loans to purchase loans. Freddie Mac predicts this year will be the first “purchasedominated market” since 2000. Many may be tempted to wait until the busy summer home buying season, but the best mortgage buys will likely take place early in the year before rates climb.

Rim Rock Riders Queen Michaela McKelvie By Shea McElvie

14 year old La Pine teen, Michaela McKelvie, decided to try out for 2014 Rim Rock Riders Queen last October, simply for the experience. Competing against a field of 5 other girls in horsemanship, executing a riding pattern and rodeo knowledge, it was her talent for public speaking that put her over the finish line. She was officially crowned February 15, 2014 at Rim Rock Riders annual crab feed and Queen Coronation. Michaela will be using her Quarter Horse mare, Lacey, an 11 year old buckskin, to represent Rim Rock Riders Event Center this summer. She plans to attend Spray, Sisters, Crooked River, La Pine, Jefferson and Deschutes County parades and rodeos, as well as the Lake County Roundup. She will also officiate at the 6 monthly Rim Rock Riders Playdays to be held this summer as well. That is a summer full of miles; nevertheless, B-U-S-Y isn’t a new word for this young lady. Homeschooled since 5th grade, she is also very active in her church, playing keyboard in the youth group band. Michaela has been an energetic volunteer for La Pine Rodeo Association for the past 3 years, helping to organize the Mutton Bustin’ event (or trying anyway), carrying the mounted Sponsor flags during the rodeo, as well as grounds prep work and cleanup. Other interests include participation in Deschutes County 4-H for past 6 years as a member of Shear Delight

sheep 4-H. She has received the Ralph McNulty Production sheep award as well as the Sarah McCoy Hampshire Heritage Award, using them to increase her small flock of wethersire sheep, as well as her business, In the Blue Ewes. She will show a market lamb and a few production ewes at Deschutes County Fair this year. Her love of horses began at 3 years old, when Michaela would help feed and care for Lacey as a foal. Hundreds of miles of trail riding and horse camping with her parents, Mike and Sheila McKelvie, helped develop her knowledge of horsemanship and love of the outdoors. From there, she has taken Lacey to many annual playday events sponsored by La Pine Rodeo, North Lake Rodeo and Silver Horse Ranch. She also contributes her riding ability to local trainers, haven taken riding lessons at Ghost Rock Ranch and equitation / jumping lessons at Silver Horse Ranch. She also enjoys attending cattle sorting practices. Queen Michaela would love to have you come out to Powell Butte for some great times and lots of fun horse activities, from barrel and pole bending practices to cattle sorting/penning, even a drill team…and a bunch of summer playdays, as well as a nice warm café to view it all from at Rim Rock Riders. Check out their webpage for more information and schedules at then come out and get a membership!

Earthquakes Continued from page 30

“bursty” swarms of small earthquakes under the mountain’s south flank are normal, but a large quake right under its peak or a sustained series of quakes that build in magnitude could be cause for alarm. The quakes this week fit within the broad category of what is normal in the region, Moran said. Little quakes like these give scientists a better understanding of what that “regular state of being” looks like, he said. They can then compare the “normal” against activity that may be a precursor of greater threats. Geologists say the last confirmed eruption of Mount Hood was more than 230 years ago, and it’s hard to predict when it will blow again. Any of the volcanoes in the Cascades could erupt again “in our lifetimes,” Moran said.
