MCKENZIE RIVER

COVER STORY

Belknap Hot Springs Resort By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter

Description: A family friendly, rustic lodge/campground resort that is situated on the banks of the stunningly beautiful upper McKenzie River. There are two hot swimming pools on the premises that are fed from hot water springs. Across the river from the lodge is a walk-in tent campground as well as extensive semiformal gardens and a network of wellmaintained hiking paths. The Resort is popular with international visitors and hikers and has become a real “Connecting Place” for families who live on either side of the Cascades, finding Belknap a great place to hold family reunions. Belknap has also become a favorite place to celebrate on New Year’s Eve, with fireworks displays and a family-friendly party atmosphere. The surrounding area offers extensive opportunities for outdoor adventure. The McKenzie River Trail offers 27 miles of unparalleled hiking and mountain biking as it winds its way past waterfalls, deep pools, and lava rock outcroppings. The river itself offers exceptional fly fishing and Class III and IV whitewater. The old McKenzie Highway is nearby, opening up access to the Three Sisters Wilderness area and the moonscape of lava rock on McKenzie Pass. History/Background: There’s been a resort at Belknap Springs since the 1870s, although it has changed significantly over the years. Rollin Simeon Belknap, who came to Oregon from Boston by way of the California Gold Rush, filed a claim on the springs in 1870 and later moved his family to the location to develop a health resort and mineral spa. . It was known as Salt Springs until 1891 when, under

new ownership, the name was changed to honor its original developer. Through the early 1900s, the resort attracted a steady summer clientele from the Willamette Valley and celebrities such as Clark Gable and future president Herbert Hoover. Marlene Watson, the manager, said the current owner, (Norm McDougal) bought the property in 1995, and has been responsible for bringing Belknap to its modern status, and especially for the beautiful grounds with several gardens, which offer the perfect setting for weddings, family reunions and the general enjoyment of guests. Amenities: Located across the river from the resort lodge, the gardens include a creek, several ponds, a Japanese tea house and several special groves. Ten walk-in tent sites are nearby, as well as one secluded family cabin. On the lodge

COVER PHOTOS

The cover photos give you a glimpse of the well-manicured beautiful gardens that invite you to “Slow down and stay awhile”, at Belknap Hot Springs. We explored the internet to see what people were saying about Belknap. Here is what we found: “This is a great location, essentially on the McKenzie River, great gardens, nice hotspring fed swimming pools and near other great destinations like waterfalls…. We loved the walking paths and the “Secret Garden”. “We spent 4 days at the resort and had a lovely time… this property has lovely gardens, trails and something to see around every bend.”

Highway 126. Directions: About 72 miles across Santiam Pass and down the Clear Lake Road (Highway 126) toward Eugene, or… From Springfield, take Hwy. 126 for approximately 55 miles. Four miles past the town of McKenzie Bridge, take a left on Belknap Springs Road.

“A beautiful oasis in the forests of Central Oregon. Many picturesque sites, some shade, partial shade or sun. We were greeted warmly by a staff member who became our good friend for the remainder of our stay. The extensive gardens and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The hot mineral soaking pools, especially the lower pool outside the lodge building which is surrounded by lawns, gardens and the rushing McKenzie River. A newly opened food and snack bar offers a plentiful selection of delicious items. This was our second visit and we will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.”

The Seaside students also presented MCTF with packages of salt-water taffy. Tom Ripp was master of ceremonies for the AMJ BUILDING Dedication. Tom reviewed the track history and thanked all of our local donors and volunteers. Marie Jones made a short presentation reviewing her and Aaron’s involvement and commitment to the track. The architect for the AMJ Building, Carl Sherwood and David Krull, construction superintendent, were both present for the dedication. The MCTF board surprised President, George Letchworth, with a plaque “In recognition for your leadership and commitment to our community,” and Vice President Jeff Sherman “For chasing our dream and making a world of difference in our community.” Judy and Tony Casad were instrumental in organizing the concession and designing the menu.

OAKRIDGE/WESTFIR

Faye Stewart, County Commissioner Though we may not have officially met, I have had the honor of representing you as your East Lane County Commissioner for the past nine years. I take this job very seriously and believe that if I do it well, you wouldn’t hear about me at all. Every few years we have elections however, and as May 20th is just around the corner I want to take a moment to reintroduce myself and tell you about the work that I have done over the past few years. I’m a sixth generation Oregonian, and grew up in Cottage Grove. It was there I met my beautiful wife Tammy, and where we have raised our four kids. From an early age I was taught to give back to the community and I have always been involved in various civic projects as well as serving on the Cottage Grove Planning Commission, the South Lane School District Budget Committee and the Rogue, Siskiyou, Umpqua Resource Advisory Council. Yet I felt our county was struggling and I could do more, so I ran for county commissioner. Since that time my goals have not changed.

Rural Lane County often gets left behind and I have endeavored to be an advocate for economic development and job creation in the rural parts of our county. I hope to continue my work of streamlining regulations and helping the county do our part to boost job growth. In the past few years we have • Created a small business loan fund • Promoted redevelopment of brown field sites such as Goshen • Invested lottery dollars in existing businesses • Brought in hundreds of jobs to rural Lane County One huge part of job creation however, is making sure that our communities are safe so that businesses want to stay and expand or move into the area. As commissioner, I would like to continue improving our public safety. We need to build on your support for more jail beds and make sure that our funds are well managed to get the best results. Over the years I have attempted many different ways to get more funding for rural patrols and I will continue those efforts if reelected.

Some exciting things have been happening in the Oakridge area recently. Just in the last few months the board of commissioners voted to approve funding to assist the Orchid Health Clinic to open in Oakridge, providing much needed services and creating jobs. Last week I attended a meeting to discuss landing an Amtrak station in Oakridge – which could provide a great boost to the economy. Also on the economic development front, after much work the Oakridge Industrial Park recently received certified status. This means that from the start of the process, a builder can receive all of the needed permits and can start breaking ground in 180 days. This is a huge step for the marketability of Oakridge.

Submitted by Gary Carl

As always, my highest priority is to serve you and I am honored to work hard for all the residents of East Lane County. Commissioner Stewart and his wife, Tami live in Cottage Grove where they are raising their four children - Gracie, Fayth, Joshua and Hope.

Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls are located on Highway 126. These falls mark the terminus of two thick flows of basaltic andesite lava that dammed Clear Lake and moved into the OAKRIDGE McKenzie River 3,000 years ago. The results are two breathtaking waterfalls with foaming white water cascades in between. NEWBERRY NATIONAL PINEin the area. Sahalie (or “Heaven”) and Koosah (or “Sky”) are Chinook Jargon words - part of a rudimentary trade language that allowed people to exchange news andLA goods The MONUMENT Waldo VOLCANIC Lake Kalapuya, Molalla, Sahaptain and Chinook peoples traveled and traded here, perhaps on their way to obtain obsidian in the high Cascades or to gather huckleberries. y B u access ACCESS: To access Koosah Falls Day Use Area, from McKenzie Bridge travel east on Hwy 126 approximately 17.3 miles.

FUN ADVENTURES

The McKenzie River Trail… off Highway 126 This 27 mile long hiking/biking trail follows the McKenzie River from it’s headwaters at Clear Lake where springs literally gush from the ground to form this mighty river. Massive lava flows have shaped this land, creating Clear Lake and some of the rivers most spectacular water features - it’s waterfalls. The trail loops around Clear Lake and proceeds through old growth forest, past two stunning waterfalls, the Sahalee and then Koosah. (those who prefer to tour nature by automobile can also view these spectacles with relatively short walks from a parking lot.) Just below Carmen Resevoir the entire McKenzie River suddenly vanishes. It flows underground for roughly 3.5 miles before silently bubbling back up at the place known as Tamolitch pool. Tamolitch Pool is an unusual natural wonder which is rarely seen by the average tourist. It’s an astonishing pool of frigid high alpine water that springs up from the ancient lava flow. At the end of this crystal blue pool, the McKenzie River runs through more old growth forest, connects with the Belknap Hot Springs and Lodge (see featrue story), wooden bridges, streams and creeks continue until the bottom of the trail is reached. The trail may be approached in various sections or as a whole. Visit McKenzieRiverTrail.com for more details about the McKenzie River Trail.

BONANZA

By Jon Wiley, Good 2 Go Family Fun and Outdoor Shop at the Village at Sunriver

Stand Up Paddle (or SUP) Season is here in Central Oregon. Have you seen it? A person paddling down the Deschutes or at one of the Cascades Lakes on what looks like a surfboard! It is the fastest growing watersport in the world, and we live in the heart of Stand Up Paddle Country. The Deschutes River, Little Deschutes and Cascade Lakes are all perfect places to get out on the water and try a SUP. The boards are shaped just like a surfboard with more floatation, and a foam or rubber mat on top for traction. The paddle is longer than

you would expect when you first grab one. Many people are now paddling for exercise and core strength building. Even SUP yoga classes have popped up on the local waters. Good 2 Go has been offering SUP rentals, trips and tours from the G2G shop in The Village at Sunriver for 5 years now. The fleet is

upgraded each season with new and improved boards! Recreational boards, performance boards and even inflatable whitewater boards are now available at G2G! Many customers during the summer stop by the shop and rent a board or two to take up to Sparks Lake for the day. It is easy to strap a few boards on the roof of any car then head up to the High Lakes for a day of FUN. I suggest paddling a few lakes during the day with a stop off at Elk Lake Lodge for lunch or dinner. Many of our customers rent the boards for the day and bring them back the next morning so they can catch the sunset while on the water. The rental program at G2G is VERY flexible with the lowest rental prices for SUP in Central Oregon!! The next option that we give our customers is a trip down the Little Deschutes River. With a private “Put-in” for G2G guests only, this provides a very peaceful paddle through Vandervert Ranch and the Crosswater Golfcourse. Stop at one of the islands to rest or swim in the warm waters of the Little D before continuing your journey. These trips include transportation to and from the river, paddle instruction with board, paddle and life jacket for each person. The Little D trip is a great place for a quick getaway for tourists and locals alike as it is a 2 hour paddle to the take out. Longer trips are available that can include many scenic sights as well as wildlife sightings including our resident population of Bald Eagles. Boards for beginners have more floatation to make it easy to balance on while performance boards are a bit more unstable, but much faster

and more maneuverable. New this year, are kidssized boards and kayaks. All of the trips through G2G offer the choice of Stand Up Paddle, Kayak, Canoe or Raft so that each group can take a water craft that will suit each individuals

One stop shop

and

FOR

needs. New and used SUP boards and paddles are also available for purchase at Good 2 Go....So stop by the shop and see “What’s Sup” with this latest and greatest watersports rage!........Until then.....HAPPY PADDLING~~~~~~~>((*> Jon

Full Sail Brewing Named Beverage World’s Craft Brewer of the Year Full Sail Brewing named “Craft Brewer of the Year” Beverage World Hood River, Oregon – Full Sail Brewing has been named “Craft Brewer of the Year” by Beverage World Magazine for their 26 years of “sustainable stewardship, quality, consistency and operational ingenuity.” More than a quarter century after its founding, Full Sail’s beers continue to garner acclaim on worldwide stage, having collected more than 300 awards, including 130 Gold medals. “It’s a great honor to receive this recognition from Beverage World,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail’s Founder and CEO. “When we founded Full Sail in 1987 there were only a handful of small breweries in the country and we were fortunate to be one of those early, pioneering brewers. We were inspired by the idea of bringing a fresh perspective to American beer culture by emphasizing complexity, creativity, and sophistication. We believe that one of life’s greatest joys is in celebrating moments big and small with friends, family, good food, and of course, good beer. The craft beer industry has grown and changed tremendously over these 26 years, as there are now over 3,000 breweries nationwide. Within this intensely competitive framework, we are thrilled that Full Sail has been named Craft Brewer of the Year. It is with a sense of pride and deep appreciation that we acknowledge this accolade from Beverage World.” “Our focus and vision for our brewery has always been to provide world class, elegant beers with impeccable, consistent quality. Over the years, the hundreds of medals we have received in national and international awards reflect this dedication. As the first brewery in the small community of Hood River, Oregon, we understood the impact we have to both our community and our environment. To be named Craft Brewer of the Year means that not only do we take brewing seriously, but also our responsibility to our employee-owners, our community, and the beauty of our environment.

Feds Suspend Rules on Refillable Wine Bottles PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal agency agreed Friday to suspend requirements that would have forced Oregon merchants offering takeout wine in refillable bottles to comply with the same rules as wine bottlers. “This is news that deserves a toast,” said U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., at a press conference in Portland where he announced the agency’s decision. State lawmakers last year approved the sale of wine in the refillable bottles commonly known as growlers, already a popular way for beer drinkers to get their fill. But a U.S. Treasury Department bureau said last month that growler sales would be subject to regulations on labels, licenses and recordkeeping that apply to wine bottling operations. Earlier this month, Oregon’s congressional delegation asked the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau to reconsider its decision. All seven members of the delegation signed a letter to the bureau saying the requirements would be a burden for wine merchants and would limit the sale of Oregon wine. In response, bureau Administrator John J. Manfreda said it would suspend the ruling and begin a rule-making process to modernize its regulations and solicit comments from the industry, consumers and state regulators. The bureau does not intend “to unduly burden the lawful sale of wine growlers in states such as Oregon,” Manfreda said in a letter to Wyden released Friday. It was welcome news for Greg Paneitz, winemaker and co-owner of Wooldridge Creek Winery in Grants Pass, who had advocated for Oregon’s wine growler law. “I think everybody’s breathing a sigh of relief,” said Paneitz, who added that allowing consumers to use refillable bottles helps local wineries like his keep prices competitive.

Legally-Blind Iditarod Racer Rachel Scdoris to Speak By Linden Gross at ConnectW Bend, OR – May 1, 2014 – Inspirational endurance athlete and advocate for the visually impaired Rachel Scdoris didn’t let her lack of vision stand in her way. She focused on the possibilities rather than the challenges, even after being told “there’s no way”. Her inspirational story, which she’ll share along with photos and dog stories, seems particularly fitting during ConnectW’s three-month membership drive. The organization is all about empowering members to reach their highest potential in business and in life through innovative and educational programs, business opportunities, networking, friendship and fun. This business and social network welcomes women in all fields and endeavors—from entrepreneurs and professionals to women simply wishing to explore, expand and enhance their lives and environments. In an effort to expand its membership (currently 100 women), ConnectW hosts a yearly membership drive which this year runs from April 1 to June 30. New members who join during this period receive a prize, as do ConnectW members who invited them as guests. But you don’t have to wait to be invited. Just come! ConnectW is not industry exclusive. No matter what you do, we invite you to check us out. ConnectW’s guests are made to feel welcome from the moment they walk in at 5 p.m. for pre-dinner networking. The schmoozing doesn’t stop after an hour—it just gets more intimate. Over dinner you get to introduce yourself to the other seven women at your table and trade business cards before the monthly program starts. If you can’t make it to May’s meeting, June’s speaker Leslie Toll, MBA, MS—who has over 25 years experiencing working for Coca-Cola and the St. Charles Health System as a senior human resources professional—will share the building blocks of creating a vibrant customer service business model. Business of all sizes, including yours, can benefit from this presentation. ConnectW annual dues are $150 a year, with the option of splitting that into three consecutive monthly payments. For more information, please call ConnectW Marketing Chair Amanda Albrich at (541) 848-8598, check out www.connectw.org 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 fi nd such a mix of business opportunities, networking, friendship and fun?

BendFilm Worth the Entry Fee Submitted by BendFilm

BEND, Oregon - MovieMaker Magazine recognized BendFilm for the second year in a row as one of the “50 Film Festivals Worth The Entry Fee in 2014.” The list spotlights key festivals up-andcoming filmmakers should consider when entering the festival circuit. And Central Oregon plays a part in making sure its local, independent film festival stays “a bit homier, edgier, more personal and,” in the words of MovieMaker Magazine, “absolutely worth it.” “We are thrilled to once again receive MovieMaker’s recognition,” BendFilm Director Todd Looby said. “As a filmmaker myself, I can’t think of a better place to exhibit. BendFilm offers an unbeatable location in Bend, enthusiastic and informed audiences, cash prizes, a filmmaker-centric focus, accomplished jurors, unique programs each year, and, of course, the best freshly-brewed beer and roasted coffee all independent artists dream of. These things combine to make BendFilm stand out among the hundreds of film festivals across the country.” MovieMaker Magazine called attention to BendFilm’s commitment to supporting filmmakers both in the 2013 (http://www.moviemaker.com/ festivals/top-50-festivals-worth-entry-

fee-moviemaker-releases-annual-list/) and 2014 (http://www.moviemaker.com/ articles/50-film-festivals-worth-the-entryfee-a-through-c/) lists, stating, “Bend has stayed committed to the ideal that, at a film fest, the moviemaker is king— and should be treated as such.” The 11th annual festival runs October 9-12, 2014. About BendFilm BendFilm is an annual independent film festival designed to support and nourish filmmakers and enrich the cultural life of Central Oregon. Celebrating its 11th year, BendFilm is proud to bring diverse voices and visions to the Bend community. BendFilm is made possible by a dedicated crew of volunteers and generous sponsors. For more information, call (541) 388-3378 or visit www.bendfilm.org.

BendFilm Opens its Doors to First Friday BEND, OR--With a new office, a new director and a new festival just around the corner, BendFilm has announced it will open its doors to the community from 5-8 p.m. for the May 2 First Friday Art Walk. Drop by to have a drink with new director, Todd Looby, and check out the new office, located at 1000 NW Wall Street, Suite 260, in the heart of Downtown Bend. The recently refurbished building is the only LEED-certified building in Bend.

Looby, himself an independent filmmaker, joined BendFilm in April after relocating from Chicago, IL, where he also operated a successful nonprofit. After a successful 10th anniversary festival, BendFilm is hoping to continue its great relationships with sponsors, filmmakers, movie lovers and the Central Oregon community. The organization is excited about its upcoming events, screenings, parties and, of course, the annual festival. The festival runs October 9-12, 2014.

Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe Half Day Tour This tour begins by meeting at the shop (805 SW Industrial Way) just downstream of the Old Mill District. Guides will load you into a Van and drive you to the put in, which is just 20 minutes away. Once at the river (Slough Camp) the guides will run you through very basic paddling concepts and safety before launching you onto the water. Everyone paddles as a group, up toward Benham Falls. When the current gets too strong we turn around and enjoy the help of the current to bring us downstream. It’s a beautiful float with all kinds of opportunity to view wildlife including deer, river otter, beaver, bald eagle, and heron to name a few. On river right, a short way downstream, we pull into the slough. It’s absolutely beautiful and has a big lava tube flowing into it. After our leisurely visit into the slough, we

continue downstream enjoying the rustic surroundings of aspen groves, lava flows and a stunning view of the Cascades Mountains, Ryan’s Ranch is on river right... a beautiful meadow (no ranch house or ranch...not really sure why it’s nicknamed that) but feature movies have been filmed there including: Scenes from True Grit (the original), parts of How the West Was Won and Disney’s Homeward Bound. We take out right above Dillion Falls, and while the guides load boats, the guests have an opportunity to check out Dillion Falls. The whole trip is approximately 4 hours door to door. No experience is necessary for this trip and famiies are welcome. Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe is located at 805 SW Industrial Way in Bend and can be contacted at (541) 317-9407. – Sue Fox

Sunriver Books and Music By Deon Stonehouse

Saturday May 10th William Sullivan gives a slide show titled Oregon for the Curious showing us some of the stranger places in our beautiful state; places to hike, visit, and places used as settings for the stories in his new book, an innovative collection of short stories titled The Oregon Variations. This daring 31 story collection is set in every county in Oregon. The Vortex is about a lonely little bookstore battling Amazon, the evil empire, in an incredibly unusual way. Aria for Tenderfeet captures perfectly the feeling of ranchland and the melancholy of one generation yearning to pass on the land as it was passed to them. It is a lovely story about a grandfather and two grandsons. To Say Nothing Of The Dog has two hit men trailing their target on the snowy Crater Lake trail. Sunday May 18th at 5:00 PM at the SHARC Center Craig Johnson will give a presentation on the latest in his Walt Longmire series, Any Other Name. You can count on Craig Johnson’s talent, loyalty, and strong support for Independent Bookstores. We are grateful and honored he continues to visit us and give great presentations. Johnson’s Walt Longmire novels inspired the hit A&E TV series Longmire. Photo by Brooke Snavely Sunriver Scene

Any Other Name is a page turner! Lucian Connally and Walt Longmire have ties that go way back, deep and strong. One of Lucian’s cronies, Detective Gerald Holman, either committed suicide (the official version) or was helped from this world. Holman was steady as a rock, a by the book kind of guy. He was working cold cases, not doing anything that should have turned deadly. It does not make sense to the widow, so she asks her old friend, Former Sheriff Lucian Connally, to investigate. Lucian asks his former protégée Sheriff Walt Longmire to dig into the last days of Holman’s life to figure out what went wrong. One of the last cold cases Holman looked at was a missing woman. This case has a gritty, intense feel as Walt uncovers the dark side of the human soul. There is lots of action; Lucian shows that he still has the moves and then some. The story tackles issues of violence against women, the difference between our perception of those around us and their real character, and the dangers inherent in discovering the truth. Former Sheriff Lucian Connally is a very entertaining presence. High octane entertainment! Saturday May 24th at 5:00 PM William Dietrich will give a presentation on the latest in his Ethan Gage series The Three Emperors. The story opens in Venice where Ethan, having barely escaped the Battle of Trafalgar with his skin, is trying to amass enough money to set out in pursuit of his family. Astiza and their son Harry are being held captive in the dungeon of an ancient castle by evil men. Their fate is uncertain. Ethan plans to let people assume he died in the battle thus leaving himself free of pursuit by his enemies. Astiza keeps her captors at bay by

SUNRIVER stringing them along as she supposedly uses her knowledge of alchemy to create gold and son Harry is showing himself to be a chip off the old block in the rash bravery department. The story is full of intrigue and history on a grand scale. Lots of swashbuckling adventure with danger, epic battle, and betrayal. Thursday May 29th at 5:30 Jenny Milchman presents her latest, Ruin Falls. Liz thought she knew her husband well, a rock solid guy, uber smart, and used to being in control. Until the day her two children were snatched and everything she relied on is in question. The family had been on vacation to visit their grandparents in western New York. They spent a long day on the road, tiring as a road trip with small children can be. Liz sank into her hotel bed exhausted, waking ready for another day in the car only to find her children gone. Panic sets in; as time wears on, she realizes the man she trusted most may be her betrayer. I liked the way the children were involved in their situation and took an active part in the story, plucky kids. Sign up to attend author events by calling 541-593-2525, e-mailing sunriverbooks@sunriverbooks.com or stopping by Sunriver Books & Music. The events are free, everyone is welcome.

Newberry Habitat Volunteer, Photographer Mike Jensen, Named Crater Lake ‘Artist in Residence’ By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter Newberry Habitat Website manager, Mike Jensen and his wife Cindy have been travelling all over the region in their spare time, working on photos for Mike’s photography business. During the past year, and again in his recent Sunriver exhibit, Jensen’s amazing photos of Crater Lake have elevated our local photography expert to national distinction! Mike Jensen has recently been named Artist in Residence at Crater Lake and will take up residence at the lake so he can continue to document everything from the change in seasons to the nuances of nature that “live in the National Park!” (Last fall at the October Chamber Breakfast, Mike premiered some of his work. One of the Night Sky photos of Crater Lake brought this writer to tears-- it was just that beautiful.) Mike adds this new honor to an already long list of achievements: “I consider it an extreme honor to be named as an Artist in Residence for Crater Lake National Park.  Like many of our national parks Crater Lake is an icon due to the depth and purity of the water as well as the geologic landscapes.  Very few other locations are as well-known as Crater Lake and Wizard Island.  As a Central Oregon based photographer I have had many opportunities to photograph in and around the park so to have this opportunity to photograph as I please is a true chance of a lifetime!” Mike went on to say, “I’m also a big fan of giving back, so to help staff and visitors alike, I will be hosting a series of lectures and workshops about photographing around the Crater Lake area.  As much a student of photography, I am also a teacher, conducting a curriculum of lectures, seminars and workshops for Central Oregon Community College, Cascade Institute of Photography, Cascade Camera Club and privately.” Mike Jensen is a professional photographer based in Sunriver, Oregon. Together with his wife Cindy, they own JensenOne Marketing & Photography. Mike also teaches Photography and Photoshop in association with the La Pine Parks & Recreation District and conducts photography workshops open to the public. Mike is a frequent lecturer for the Deschutes County Library system, and writes a monthly photography article for the Sunriver Scene. As Mike puts it, in Central Oregon, “We live in a Photographer’s Wonderland in every season.” Mike serves as an elected official on the Bend La Pine School Board, volunteers as an ASPIRE Program mentor at the La Pine High School, and is working closely with

YES on #18-93 Klamath needs a new approach to achieve the results we all want – a healthy economy, city/county pulling together, and effective, cost-efficient government. Bring professional management to Klamath County government. Reduce commissioner compensation from $97,000 with full benefits to $24,000 plus health benefits. Avoid costly mistakes – like the recent $416,000 fine for mismanagement at County Mental Health. Proven effectiveness – the most successful counties in Oregon have professional administrators. Counties with budgets Klamath’s size typically have administrators. Separate administration from policy-making – so commissioners can attend to the needs of citizens and administration won’t be subject to politics. Paid for by PAC 18-93

We thank all our supporters, including:

Newberry Habitat for Humanity to develop the websites (Www.newberyhabitat.org and LaPineRestore.org) Besides his well-known photography business, Mike develops graphics, works to set up websites, and helps other businesses throughout the region. As a longtime member of the La Pine Chamber, a past Chamber Board President, and an integral part of the La Pine Chamber’s technological development efforts, we add our congratulations to Mike Jensen for being chosen Artist in Residence. We hope this recognition leads to other possibilities for this extraordinary artist to photograph Crater Lake and other National Parks in the system! “Not only am I extremely blessed to live in a beautiful area of the world to photograph, but I’m so fortunate to be surrounded by a group of peers, friends, mentors and students who continually challenge me to learn more and constantly challenge myself to be a better photographer.” info@jensenone.com

Midstate General Manager, Dave Schneider, (right) is ready to host the annual member’s Meeting on May 10th at the La Pine Middle School. There will be a vendor area with information about the latest services and energy saving heating systems and appliances, members can enjoy a nice lunch and then go to the Co-op meeting to meet the board and hear all about what Midstate Electric Coop is doing for its membership. Schneider is pretty excited after completing his fi rst year as General Manager because he has instituted several new programs that will help members get information about their accounts or make better use of coop services for their personal needs. • A 2012 survey question told the company that they needed better communication with members so the fi rst thing they did was to add more phone lines. • Members wanted a more convenient way to pay bills and now they can do it on I-Phones and with direct checking.

Life Skills: The Big Picture

Life Skills Students: Jason Baker, Jon Hollandsworth, Tysha Hulse, Jemima Pearson, and Buck Parsley.

Life Skills students organize and plant seedlings.

On Tuesday, April 22, 2014, the Life Skills program from La Pine High School along with 4th & 5th grade students from Three Rivers Elementary planted 1,000 seedlings in their ponderosa pine nursery at Lake Penhallow, the Sunriver composting site. The purpose of this project, Project Ponderosa, is to reintroduce ponderosa pines trees in parts of the state where they have been thinned by logging, encroachment of lodgepole pines, or other devastation. The students from the Life Skills class are responsible for ensuring that the seedlings are planted properly in pots; load and unload the trees for transport; and place, water, and cover the seedlings in rows. After spending 3 days preparing the nursery for the seedlings, the students then spend 1-2 days per week in spring and fall maintaining the nursery and making sure that the new trees are properly irrigated. Most of the seedlings spend 1-3 years at the nursery site before they are donated to area non-profits for fundraising or ponderosa restoration. In 2013, the students in the Life Skills program planted over 400 trees in central Oregon locations such as the Sunriver Nature Center and the Three Rivers area. The Nature Center conducts a sale of the potted ponderosa seedlings in the spring and fall that keeps the Ponderosa Project self-sustaining. Project organizer and sponsor, Lee Stevenson, is proud that the baby ponderosas are locally sourced and contribute to the revitalization of ponderosa pines in our area. Programs such as Life Skills and Project Ponderosa benefit the environment and the ecology of our state, but that is only part of the big picture strategy that provides broad benefits to our students and our community. Naturally, the students learn how to plant and nurture seedlings, the importance of replenishing sustainable resources, and the natural beauty that abounds in our forests. But this is only part of the big picture goal for the students in the Life Skills program. Ken Thorp, one of the teachers in the program, explains that the primary objective of the program is for the students to develop usable skills that will help them assimilate into the community once they leave the public schools. They will learn to be productive citizens with employable skills, and the ability to successfully hold a job. They learn what it means to be a reliable employee and how to provide great customer service. The students will grow in confidence and their ability to live independently as members of our society. Qualified students can continue in this program through the age of 21 as part of the Transition program. The Transition program provides continuing support for young adults as they become productive citizens.

Life Skills students load the seedlings for transport to Lake Penhallow.

Through strong community support, committed volunteers, and the efforts of teachers and instructional staff from Bend-La Pine Schools, Deschutes County continues to develop programs that contribute to the economic health and well-being of all. You can participate in this process by attending the Life Skills May Plant Sale on May 20th-23rd at La Pine High School. The program sells a variety of both annual and perennial plants grown in the school greenhouse at very reasonable prices. Help us as a community to promote the Big Picture! Note: Look for more information on Project Ponderosa, the work of Lee Stevenson, and the participation by Three Rivers Elementary in the next edition of the Newberry Eagle.

The sixth home in the subdivision will be completed in the fall of this year, and the seventh in the spring of 2015. Actress and author Holly Robinson Peete will help build a new home in Los Angeles County. Peete, a mother of four, is the national spokesperson for National Women Build Week 2014 and a longtime supporter of Habitat for Humanity. “I am delighted to once again support National Women Build Week and look forward to building alongside the amazing women who take part in this special event,” said Peete. “A home provides such a strong foundation for families, and this week offers great opportunities for women to join together, learn new skills and help families in need of affordable housing.” Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008 and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. Lowe’s donated $1.75 million to this year’s National Women Build Week, including a $5,000 store gift card as part of a new five-year partnership with Habitat that will bring Lowe’s total contributions to more than $63 million since 2003. In celebration of this renewed partnership, Lowe’s and Habitat launched Hammers for Habitat, a volunteer initiative inviting men and women across America to give one day to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for a family in their community. To learn more, visit www.habitat.org/partnerships/corporate-partnerships/lowes, Habitat. org/Lowes. “As part of National Women Build Week, we’re encouraging women across America to raise a hammer to help create safe and affordable housing in partnership with local families,” said Joan Higginbotham, Lowe’s director of community relations. “We thank our Lowe’s Heroes and the thousands of volunteers who will help strengthen communities throughout the country this week.” The U.S. Census Bureau reports more than 16.1 million children are living in poverty in the United States.

LMPS Wrestler Hunter Dodson off to Nationals

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter La Pine middle school-er and Blue Lightening Mat Club member, Hunter Dodson, has qualified to go to the National duels on May 9th-10th in Cody Wyoming! He fi nishes his season with 47 wins and 3 losses and he has secured the Triple Crown win! Hunter is a currently a 8th grader at the middle school in La Pine. At age 13 he has accomplished a long list of wrestling wins/successes during his wrestling competitions this year. He will do a fi nal competition on April26-27 before he and the rest of Team Oregon drive back to Cody in two weeks. This year, Dodson has won his division in the OWA folk style championships in February, then he won the middle school district title and the middle school regional championships. He went on to place second at the middle school state championships. Now Hunter has been asked to wrestle for TEAM OREGON in the national duels May 9th-10th in Cody Wyoming. Team Oregon represents the top middle school wrestlers throughout the state of Oregon and will be wrestling against teams from Canada, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, and Iowa. Hunter listens to his coach- Dad- and set goals for himself at the beginning of the year. All the accomplishments above were goals he planned for and reached. He still has one more goal ahead of him and that is to win the OWA Triple Crown in wrestling. This is the highest award a youth wrestler can obtain in the Oregon Wrestling Association. Dodson will have to win both Free Style and Greco Roman state titles this during this last April weekend in order to achieve this prestigious award. Hunter’s current record combined in OWA and Middle school is 47 wins and 3 losses. Let’s wish Hunter well in his endeavors at the National next month!

City of La Pine UPDATE By Ellen Currie, Eagle Reporter

La Pine City Council Passes Moratorium After a public hearing held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, in conjunction with the regular Council Work Session, the La Pine City Council unanimously approved Ordinance No. 2014-04 Declaring a Moratorium on Medical Marijuana Facilities; and Declaring an Emergency. Jeremy Green, City Attorney, explained that the ordinance prohibits the location of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries within the incorporated limits of La Pine. The Ordinance takes effect immediately as it was passed as an emergency measure and will continue through May 1, 2015. Current Oregon law prohibits a moratorium beyond that date. The Moratorium states that enforcement will be by “any sworn peace officer authorized to enforce the laws of the City and any other city official authorized to administer City’s land use” regulations. The Ordinance includes penalties of up to $500 for each violation and each day that a violation continues, constitutes a separate violation. In addition, the City may initiate a suit or legal action

in court to enforce the Ordinance. Attorney Jeremy Green, an Associate of Bryant, Lovlien & Jarvis, PC, in Bend, Oregon, advised the Council to begin working on reasonable restrictions for such facilities beyond the May 2015 expiration of the Ordinance. He will work with the City Planning Commission to develop “time, place, and manner” restrictions for the future. Although approximately 15 members of the south county community attended the public hearing, only 3 people addressed the Council regarding the Ordinance. Concerns voiced by the public were: 1. Inadequate time to consider and discuss the issue prior to a Council decision, 2. Lack of state and local regulations to adequately protect students from proximity to marijuana and the potential use for recreational purposes, and 3. Inadequate staffing for State oversight of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries. While the concern for the public’s right to safe access to marijuana as a

prescription medication was raised at the April 9th meeting of the Council, there was no testimony on this issue during the public hearing. There was no information provided addressing the level of need in the immediate community or the inadequacy of existing Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in meeting the current need. Stu Martinez, President of the Council, recognized that even if the state of Oregon legalizes marijuana in the future, this is an important issue for the Council and the community. It is “important to err on the side of caution.” He believes that the moratorium will give La Pine a year to plan and will serve the City well. Mayor Ken Mulenex further supported the Moratorium voicing concern that there are currently no mechanisms within the State for ensuring that Medical Marijuana Dispensaries are operating within established requirements. While there are constraints on the location and operation of such facilities, little has been done to provide the oversight necessary to enforce these requirements.

Obituary

David William Franklin Mousseau August 10th, 1956 to April 14th, 2014

David William Franklin Mousseau (Moose) passed away on April 14th, 2014 of heart complications. A Celebration of Life was held at his home in La Pine, Oregon on April 19, 2014 and his friend Gary Pearson from La Pine led the services. Dave was born on August 10, 1956 to Leo and Pat Mousseau in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Graduating in 1974 from Coachella Valley High School in California, he joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in Ft. Ord, California. He was an expert marksman in the Army and was proud of his service. He had a passion for hunting and fishing, especially duck hunting and acted as a hunting guide in the Merced Valley during the years he lived there. He was a champion “duck caller” winning at the State Competition in California. Dave loved the outdoors and moved to La Pine in 1998. He had the opportunity to be a Reindeer Wrangler and worked with Operation Santa Claus in Redmond. He also worked at Mt. Bachelor, FedEx Freight and The American Red Cross. Many that knew him joked with him about his tye-dyed t-shirts that he always wore. His friends loved him dearly and called him friend and brother. A hippie spirit, an Indian, a soldier, a hunter, a father, a husband, an uncle and most of all a friend to all, his crazy/jokester humor, fun loving character and his strength will be missed. He was a wonderful wise old soul and had a way of giving advice and thoughts in a brotherly way. Dave loved animals of all kinds and in particular he had a kittie named Dottie that followed him around; he rescued her as a kitten and fed her with a bottle nursing her to health. He is survived by his wife, Patrice McFadden Mousseau, mother – Pat Robineau, father - Leo Mousseau, Sister & Brother-in-law – Renia & Bob Seibel and nephews – Justin & Brandon; Sister – Connie Beamer, Sister & Niece – Polly & Madison Pfhul; Son – Scott Mousseau; Uncle & Aunt – Dewey & Char Edwards, Uncle & Aunt – Ron & Herminia Edwards, Aunt – Veronica Edwards. Long time friends – Scott & Margaret Friestad, Bill Calderon and all of the McFadden Family. A natural born musician, he played harmonica and loved music.

Rock & Roll lives on forever, and so do you, Dave.

I Will Survive! And They Did! Relay for Life La Pine/Sunriver is scheduled for June 21-22 overnight. Every year the La Pine High School track becomes home for teams of people who are running and walking to support the fight against Cancer. Since it is a grass roots fundraiser, that raises money to fight cancer, it is an important part of our annual event calendar! But it is not just about the runs, the teams and the fundraising. The Relay for Life is about everyone who is affected when a person gets cancer and they need to deal with the realities that become a challenging part of their lives. Starting with the patients who have the disease, of course they are the reason the supporters are working so hard to raise money for cancer research and information dissemination. Then there are the many caregivers that range from the medical professionals to the cancer center volunteers and all of the friends, family members and healthcare professionals that help the patients while they are being treated and recovering. Lastly, Relay for Life celebrates those who have been there and back when they survive- (yes, the survivors) - their own experience with the disease and treatment, surgeries and recovery. “Cancer is a disease that the entire family gets,” explains local survivor, Teri Myers. “It changes everything about how you and your family members live together to fight the battle against what it can take from you. And it will mean that your spouse, your children, your relatives and friends will have to change with you. Fair or not, together you have a better chance of recovery. So everyone gets cancer with you!” One of La Pine’s favorite sons, Dan Varcoe, has his own personal story about how cancer changed his life and what it is like to survive. In 2008 Dan was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia and he went into the hospital for treatment. The facts about this type of cancer are that it is a slow growing cancer affecting more men than women and there is no cure but treatment can lead to long remissions. For a year Dan was treated while his wife Janet became his rock of Gibraltar acting as his connection to the outside world and as his communicator. Janet also worked to coordinate everything that he needed. His three children each handled his illness in their own way and as the family moved through the year of change and treatment that he experienced, Dan closed his Real Estate business with the help of one daughter, and finally he went into remission in 2009. I asked him what he learned from his experience. Like many, Cancer does give you a different perspective about what is important in life. “For me?” Dan explained, “I feel like I got a second chance at life. I value every day and I have a tendency to want to enjoy every part of life. I am conscious of every minute of time.” A third local survivor and Relay for Life committee member, Yvonne Fuqua is currently involved in the Relay for Life event because she believes that surviving is a time to pay it forward. Yvonne has really stepped up for her first year on the committee. It is a different angle when you ask why Yvonne got as involved as Survivor Co-chair on Relay so quickly. Yvonne’s story unfolded: “I was diagnosed with DCIS on 9.11.2009 after having a mammogram and a needle biopsy. The lumpectomy that followed the initial tests revealed stage 1 grade 3 cancer. The surgeons tried two procedures called sentinel node. Neither

try worked! It ended up with my right axilla removed and that turned out negative. I followed the surgical procedures with 8 months of chemo, 4 weeks of radiation (daily). I was lucky because I always looked and felt fine (except on the actual chemo days). I kept working part time through remainder of treatments. No one could tell I Casetta de Pasta Chefs donated the Bark for Life was sick unless they looked at my pasta dinner to raise funds for Bark for Life. head and saw that my hair was thinning/missing. When you experience cancer you look at life differently. “I chose to help with Relay because there is MORE to illness than what a patient goes through. There is laughter, strength, health, and nutrition. There are friends and family who care about you even if it is a smile, a pat on arm, a hug, or sitting in silence with one another,” Fuqua revealed. “Cancer is more than illness, it can get you down so much that you can’t get up. So you reach for your friends and make community connections, making friends for a just for a little while or maybe, if you are lucky, friends for life! … There is so, so, MUCH MORE.” Be a part of Relay for life and rsvp TODAY for the survivor brunch: Survivor Brunch featuring Dr. Stephen Kornfeld from the Cancer Center in Bend When: May 17th Time: 11:00 am-2:00 pm At: La Pine Fire Station 51550 Huntington Rd Host: La Pine/Sunriver Relay for Life RSVP: Yvonne at 573-424-9089 Creagh at 541-536-7493

Health and Should I Be Gluten Free? By Phil Davis, Certified Living Well Coach

During our initial cleanse nine years ago Celeste learned that wheat was the root of the terrible eczema on her hands. The painful, bloody itching on her palms and fingers completely disappeared in the first few days; replaced with a new baby-soft layer of skin. Incredible. A few days after her hands healed Celeste ate ONE (just one) breaded chicken strip and within ten minutes her hands began to itch and by the end of the night the painful oozy rash returned. Even more incredible; as she returned to her cleansing diet, without wheat, her hands quickly healed again and by the end of our 21-day cleanse the new, baby-soft layer of skin returned.

We were shocked. Wheat was a mainstay of our diet; pasta, bread, crackers, cereal, tortillas, cookies, cakes, piecrust not to mention all the prepared food items that have wheat or wheat protein added. After all, the media says, “eat more whole grains”. Today many of our clients identify wheat and the inflammatory protein, Gluten, as the cause of their health problems; finding when they eliminate gluten and wheat they become well. But wait...wheat has been a dietary staple for thousands of years... even Jesus passed out bread to the hungry and His disciples. How can wheat be bad? The wheat Jesus and your grandma ate was much lower in gluten. Since the early 1900s wheat has been hybridized and now contains up to 14 other inflammatory proteins, which may damage the gut

resulting in allergies, skin problems, digestive issues, belly fat, autoimmune disease, heart disease, depression and even mental illness. Please understand that “Gluten Free” or “Wheat Free” does not necessarily mean healthy. In fact, if you begin to load up on gluten free products to replace wheat you may become sicker and fatter as their primary ingredient is starch.

The New Senior

Motherhood is Important! - More than you know…

La Pine’s Ya Ya Sisterhood gives Kitchen Shower to LPRD Community School By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

By T. Myers

On May 11th we give a nod to our Mothers, Grandmothers and other splendid maternal figures in our lives. It is an important day that, if taken lightly by those family members who would rather sleep in on that Sunday Morning, can cause no end of damage to the family relationship with the matriarch! Don’t forget to thank your moms. Don’t forget to make her feel special. Don’t forget! The real reason I am bringing it up is that times are changing- again. How? With all of the technology and the busy-ness in most of our lives, we are losing something important. We are losing the business of being a mom (Parent)! Yes, I say Business- not to be confused with Busy-ness because there are no do-overs in motherhood! Even if you don’t know how, you have not got an option to do a half-baked job when you are raising your children! Look around at what we are seeing with parents today. Where are the longterm consequences for the following? Lots of parents that are in dual income families (where both parents work) use all of their free time in the evenings (when they don’t shut down completely) and the weekends dragging their children with them everywhere. They are taken to parties, out to restaurants, to playdate activities, to sports, to enrichment lessons, to the neighbor’s for any occasion that pops up. Kids are offered a cell phone or I Pad to keep them busy at theses outings. Granted, it is difficult for parents and children to meet the required number of ‘expected hours to be together as a family’, but how does it affect the children? They are constantly doing things. Constantly stimulated. There is no quiet time. There is usually some kind of activity with an over-stimulating toy or hand-held communication device. Finally, when do the children learn that they should not be everywhere, experiencing everything that their parents experience? In a single parent or a single income family, there are also some differences. Without the support of a partner or a second income, life is more difficult. There might not be extra dollars for enrichment activities. Sports are usually a good option, but it gets really hard to bring children to the activities and pick them up in a timely manner because of work. So these children often have more alone time or time with after school at home or at childcare and when a parent has all of the responsibility and is worn out in the evenings, the family stays in. When do the mother and/or the parents teach the children in the family the basics about chores to keep a household running, proper meal planning or manners? When do the kids learn how to take care of personal hygiene, clean their own rooms, or help with the housekeeping and meal preparations? I see that in the busy families, mealtime is often sketchy after a long day of school and work, and then after school activities and a fast trip home. The mother and/ or father are buzzing around the kitchen if they actually cook dinner and eat together, while the kids are parked in front of the TV or computer to be “Watched” safely while the folks get dinner on the table. Lots of times, the parents are so tired that they don’t shop for ingredients for a family meal and they decide to make that quick trip to a local restaurant, hoping it will be the answer. The entire family schlepps there together and the children eat what they want. No plan. Just pacifying, placating and satiating the meal time needs. Problem? No one learns to eat a common meal (Part of family bonding). Children learn to expect that they will be able to eat exactly what they want. Children and parents expect others to clean up after them as part of the restaurant service (“We will tip them for it!”) and nobody has to sit and behave, either! “It won’t hurt to let the kids walk around a bit after their meal”. And for those who wait until the children are too hungry or too tired to act like small humans instead of snarly animals in the restaurant, well, I say shame on you!

Cathy Gilmore, YA YA President and her hardworking members have been raising dollars for local charities since they formed several years ago. Recently, they met at the PRD Community Center and gave a shower for the Community School Cooking classes in order to supply basic utensils, machinery and other needed items so that the class has the tools they need to succeed. They also joined up for a picture with their newly sponsored and decorated table from the Community school Leadership class and then they went in to be treated to a wonderful lunch provided by the ten member class and their teacher Kim Hafermalz (Kim is also the new ED at the Community Kitchen). The tables are a fundraiser for the Community School Leadership class at the LPRD after school! The young ladies made a beautiful table spread with ingredients for sandwiches and salads and desserts for the group of Ya Yas that came to check out the facility. Right before the lunch was served, the students unveiled the large display of Kitchen tools that will now stock the new kitchen. LPRD holds Community School

Motherhood:

1. No Do-overs. 2. Large, life-long responsibility that is rewarding and challenging. 3. Teaching children about life and life skills and nurturing your children so they learn about family relationships and responsibilities of family members to help each other. Friends, too. 4. Allowing your children to grow in their roles inside the family. 5. Teaching them about their jobs at home and at school. 6. Letting them figure out things for themselves if they are old enough to understand the safety and societal expectations for doing so. You are growing adults when you are raising children. When you celebrate your mother on May 11th, think about how we all can support the mothers around us.

Monday-Thursday after school at the LPCC. Students pay a minimal fee and can come every day after school lets out for tutoring, and enrichment classes that include archery, Spanish Language and of course, the cooking classes. You can register your middle school child now for classes until the end of the year and next fall there will be elementary classes on top of the program that exists today. Summer Camp registration starts now for full day classes and activities for your students at the LPCC this summer. The Ya Ya Sisterhood is a woman’s organization, located in La Pine and it offers a variety of activities for all likes. You can find out more about the organization by contacting local members at P O Box 3222, La Pine, OR 97739 for information. The ladies meet on the second Wednesday of every month at the Newberry Best Western Motel on Reed Road and invite you to visit a meeting to see them in action. They also have weekly hiking and outdoor activities. Together the ladies raise and give thousands of dollars every year to local charities in the La Pine area!

FOOD & RECIPES I just spent three days in Sunriver attending the Governor’s Conference on Tourism. OMG! It was a foodie extravaganza and anyone who does not know about the changes in how we travel needs to check out the La Pine Chamber Website, the COVA Site and Travel Oregon site. Now- a- days, when you plan a trip, you are planning a full experience and travelling there is only a tiny part of it! Each of the main meals was a sponsored event and sponsors brought in the big guns to design (Yes- Design) the meals so that the dining experience was special unto itself. Sunday night, the Rogue creamery and Medford’s agribusinesses presented a cheesy take on dinner: Goat cheese salad, a Flat iron Steak with Blue Cheese Mashed potatoes and veggies and a dessert that incorporated Pane Cotta and caramelized sauce with blueberries and a poached Medford Harry and David Pear. Monday’s Breakfast was pastries, eggs, potatoes and bacon. By lunch a couple

hours later, they were at it again with a lettuce wedge salad of cranberries and pistachios with a lemony dressing and a main dish of roasted BBQ pork and Silver salmon medallions. Dessert was a plate of fresh cookies and espresso coffee beans covered in chocolate. At the COVA Buffet it was all about the BBQ and they served up pork, chicken, a variety of the usual salads and sides and an even bigger variety of beers, wines and spirits made in the area by local craftsmen. Tuesday’s Breakfast was a three course extravaganza that featured three chefs’ ideas about a decadent breakfast entrée. Chef Bette made a goat cheese and onion quiche with a cup of hot chocolate made with heavy cream and black butte porter. Chef Kim made a poached egg with hollandaise on grits with lamb medallions and Chef Travis made brioche French toast with a Marion berry chipotle sauce with a piece of braised side pork and homemade peanut butter and a cane syrup and Jim Beam whiskey

reduction. (Are you sick or full yet?). Two hours later it was time for lunch. They made a cup of corn chowder, fresh rolls and a cobb salad- something lighter filled with chopped eggs and bacon and blue cheese and ham and turkey and- and- and… on lettuce with peppers and other things! The actor Andrew McCarthy was the speaker and he made everyone feel much better with his humor and stories and then I watched as the public waddled back over to the main building to finish their meetings! This was a major culinary experience and thinking about food to share with all of you is making me GAAK a little. But I do want you to have the most amazing recipe for Chef Bette’s Hot Chocolate with Porter: She started by heating up 2 cups of whole milk until steamy. Then she added a cup of Chocolate chips (65% CACOA) melting them together, then, she added 2 cups of heavy cream and ½-1 bottle (6-12 oz.) of Black Butte Porter to taste. Everything is gently melted and stirred

together and then poured into cups and topped with Vanilla whipped cream! The drink is dessert-y and thick and delicious and MOM would love this for her big day on May 11th. You could use Dr. Pepper or Coke instead of beer and it would still be delicious. See you next time. Bon Appetit!

TID Crew in Background. Lower left: Nick Strader presented a US Flag that had been flown over the US Capitol to Elmer McDaniels at his retirement party. Far Right: Tumalo Irrigation District Manager, Elmer McDaniels retires as he turns “90.” It was July of 1992. Tumalo Irrigation District’s water was on for the season. What water they had was being rotated from farm to farm. Snow pack was extremely low, Crescent Lake was all but empty, and those were just a few of the challenges facing the new manager. Coming out of retirement and hired as an interim manager for six months to help get the district back on track was Elmer McDaniels. Elmer was no stranger to irrigation districts. He started in October of 1945 for the Sunnyside Valley Irrigation District in Sunnyside, Washington as a ditch rider. He worked his way up to assistant manager and then manager, a position he held for thirteen years at the 103,000 acre irrigation district. Next, Elmer became the manager of the 72,000 acre A and B Irrigation District in Rupert, Idaho where he managed for twelve years.

HOME & GARDEN

Daffodils and Tulips By Linda Stephenson, L & S Gardens, La Pine, OR Daffodils and tulips are blooming all over Central Oregon – ‘tis the season. Of course they have been blooming for weeks on the other side of the Cascades; we run a about a month behind in our growth patterns. When you use daffodils and/or tulips as a cut flower do NOT put the two in the same vase. Daffodils fall in the narcissus family. Daffodils and other flowers in this family exude a substance that causes the flowers to fade faster. This substance is also why the deer do not eat daffodils. Tulips work best in a vase by themselves. Resist the urge to cut back the foliage of these plants until it turns yellow. This ripening process restores energy in the bulbs for next year’s bloom. Keep in mind how nice the flowers look as we emerge from our cold winters. These bulbs make us realize that spring is on it’s way. Next fall plant lots and lots of bulbs for a beautiful spring showing. For all of your gardening questions and supplies come see us at L & S Gardens in La Pine. Look for our garden tips at www. lsgardens.com or like us on Face Book at L & S Gardens for more garden information. Questions? Call us at 541-536-2049.

Real Estate Lifestyles and Trends By Heather Dietrich, Broker

Ways to protect your home and its contents while you’re away range from simple to high tech.

Here are some ideas to secure your home when you’re on vacation. Consider a house sitter. It may be an added expense, but having a trusted person stay at your home is a great defense against burglars. Don’t advertise you’re away. Don’t leave an outgoing voicemail stating you’re out of town. Also, refrain from listing vacation dates on social media, such as Twitter and Facebook. Invest in an alarm system. Put all lights on timers, so it appears someone is home. A lighted home is a deterrent for break-ins. Have the post office hold your

mail and put your newspaper delivery on hold. An overstuffed mailbox and unopened newspapers on the lawn are a signal you are not at home. Leave all doors and windows locked. When possible, utilize dead bolts and secure sliding glass doors by placing a rod in the door groove. Alert police and a trusted neighbor to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity. Remove any spare keys that are hidden outside the house. Instead, give a key to a trusted neighbor or family member to regularly check the house.

uSDA Announces Funding to Spur Local and Regional Economic Growth in America’s Rural Communities By U.S.D.A. WASHINGTON, May 1, 2014 – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced the availability of funding to promote long-term economic growth and community vitality in rural areas. With the announcement, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) invites applications for funding through three community and economic development programs administered by USDA Rural Development. “USDA is committed to helping rural communities access the resources they need to implement strategies that will invigorate the economy, reduce poverty and enhance the quality of life in our small towns and rural areas for years to come,” Vilsack said. The announcement includes $30.6 million in zero-interest loans and $9.2 million in grants to establish revolving loan funds that finance business and economic development activities in rural areas. Applications for these funds will be accepted through the Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant (REDLG) Program. Rural utilities that are eligible for USDA financing under the Rural Electrification Act and have the capacity to serve as intermediary lenders may apply to USDA Rural Development to administer the funds locally for the benefit of specifically identified projects. These intermediaries re-lend REDLG funds at zero percent to assist with business startup and expansion, business technical assistance and job training, and community facilities projects that support economic development. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis through USDA Rural Development State Offices and are evaluated for funding consideration monthly. Through the Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) Program, USDA Rural Development is accepting competitive grant applications to improve economic conditions in designated Rural Economic Area Partnership Zones and for members of Native American tribes in rural areas. Government entities, nonprofit corporations, institutions of higher education, rural cooperatives and Native American tribes may apply for grants of up to $100,000. Funding may be used to support business incubators, feasibility studies and business plans, long-term strategic business planning, leadership and entrepreneurial training, and other related efforts. Just over $1.3 million is reserved for projects benefiting Native American communities. Another $919,820 is reserved for projects with Rural Economic Area Partnerships. In addition, USDA announces the availability of two grants from funds appropriated for the Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) program: a $500,000 grant for rural transportation projects and a $250,000 grant for Federally Recognized Native American Tribes. Funds may be used to provide technical assistance and training to help rural communities improve passenger transportation services or facilities. These USDA programs provide key support needed to create rural jobs and promote local and regional economic growth. For instance, the non-profit Ecotrust estimates that RBEG and RBOG funding for its FoodHub website is allowing it to connect more than 2,100 farmers, ranchers, fishermen, dairies and specialty producers to more buyers, Continued next page
