Inside the cone at Lava Butte from the lookout tower.

In November of 1990, Newberry National Volcanic Monument was created within the boundaries of Deschutes National Forest. Managed by the U.S. Forest Service. This monument provides a unique opportunity to view the Lava Lands of Central Oregon. Newberry National Volcanic National Monument includes 50,000+ acres of lakes, lava flows, and spectacular geologic features in central Oregon. The highest point within the Monument is the Paulina Peak Summit (7,985 ft.), showcasing views of the Oregon Cascades and across the High Desert. It is hard to fathom, as you drive through the summit area, that you are within a 17 square mile caldera at the summit of a 500 square mile volcano, a volcano that remains very active to this day. Newberry

is both seismically and geothermally active. Geologists believe the caldera sits over a shallow magma body only 2 to 5 kilometers deep. Visitors see numerous cinder cones (over 400 throughout the area), miles of basalt flows, as well as rhyolite flows of obsidian. Cover Photo is Lava Butte taken from Lava Lands Visitor Center.

Visitors can drive or walk up to the top of Lava Butte and visit the lookout tower. Left: Path from parking lot to tower.

Lava Lands

Lava Lands Visitor Center is the interpretive hub of Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Friendly rangers will help orient you to the Monument using the new 3D topographic map. Explore the state of the art interpretive exhibits on area geologic and cultural history, shop in the Discover Your Forest Bookstore, walk the trails, picnic under the pines, attend a ranger talk, drive to the top of Lava Butte for a spectacular view of Central Oregon. Butte parking is limited to 10 spaces, so FREE 30 minute time passes are issued on a first come, first served basis at the Welcome Station. Please note on busy summer days there may be delays to access Lava Butte. Behind the Visitor Center are two self guided interpretive trails that can be explored at your own pace. The Trail of Molten Land meanders over the 7,700 year-old lava flow from Lava

Cristina Rose Peterson, Lead Ranger Newberry National Volcanic Monument I work in one of Central Oregon’s most interesting and beautiful places. As the Lead Ranger on Newberry National Volcanic Monument, my goals are to improve visitors’ experiences and to uphold the purposes for which this Monument was established. As stated in the 1990 legislation, this includes “providing for the conservation, protection, interpretation and enhancement of its ecological, botanical, scientific, scenic, recreational, cultural, and wildlife resources.” This multi-faceted mission makes my job both challenging and rewarding. Visitors often ask, “What is a Monument?” or “Why is this one managed by the Forest

Butte, which is the imposing cinder cone behind the Visitor Center. The Trail of the Whispering Pines wanders through a young ponderosa pine forest. It is possible to walk up Lava Butte, but there is no trail. You have to walk up the congested road, so please watch for traffic. The Black Rock Trail is a popular mountain bike trail. It begins at the lower parking lot of the Visitor Center and continues over 4 miles to the Deschutes River along the lava flow.

Newberry Caldera Newberry Volcano, is the largest volcano in the Cascades volcanic arc. The volcano’s highest point is Paulina Peak at an elevation of 7,984 feet. The caldera encompasses a 4 by 5 mile area, which is a volcanic depression formed in a powerful explosive eruption about 75,000 years ago. The caldera’s two lakes, Paulina Lake and the slightly higher East Lake are fed in part by active hot springs heated by molten rock (magma) deep beneath the caldera. The Central Pumice Cone sits between the lakes. The mostly treeless 1,300-yearold Big Obsidian Flow, is the youngest lava flow on the volcano and in Oregon. Maps and more information can be obtained at the Paulina Visitor Center, located in the historic Forest Service Guard Station across from Paulina Lake (entrance). Visitor Center staff operate the Discover Your Forest bookstore, provide information and lead interepretive talks and tours at various locations in the caldera. These usually occur at the Big Obsidian Flow. Check in at the Visitor Center or look for flyers and signs in the campgrounds to get information about when and where the talks occur.

Paulina Lake

Paulina Creek drains this lake and has chiseled a narrow gorge through the caldera’s west wall creating a remarkable twin waterfall. Thermal vents and hot springs along the lake’s northeast edge help create a highly productive ecosystem. Paulina Lake is fed by snowmelt, hot springs, and groundwater, which flows from East Lake. The lake covers an area of 1,531 acres. The average depth of the lake is 163 feet with a maximum depth of 250. Fishing: Kokanee, rainbow trout, brown trout, tui chub, and blue chub. Popular Fishing Methods: Trolling, still-fishing, fly fishing. Resorts: Paulina Lake Resort

East Lake

East Lake is a popular recreation lake in a setting of wooded shorelines, sandy beaches and brilliant blue-green water. The lake is one of two exceptional trout lakes nestled in the caldera of (the) Newberry National Volcanic Monument, (the largest ice-age volcano in Oregon). In addition to fishing for kokanee, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon, chub, and brown trout, people come to this lake to picnic and camp. East Lake shares this

outstanding geologic area with Paulina Lake and both lakes are well known for their large brown trout. East lake is one of the finest and most traditional fisheries in Oregon, regularly producing brown trout over 10 pounds. East Lake covers 1050 acres, with a maximum depth of 200 feet, and an elevation of 6371 feet. Fishing: Brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, Atlantic salmon, and kokanee. The lake record for brown trout is a 22.5 pounds. Brown. Rainbow trout are also popular using all kinds of angling techniques. Resorts: East Lake Resort

Big Obsidian Flow Trailhead and Interpretive Site

At a mere 1300 years old, the Big Obsidian Flow is the youngest lava flow in Oregon. A one-mile interpretive trail climbs up and onto this impressive lava flow of obsidian (black glass) and pumice.

Thirst for US craft beer grows overseas RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Helping to quench a growing thirst for American craft beer overseas, some of the United States’ largest craft breweries are setting up shop in Europe, challenging the very beers that inspired them on their home turfs. It’s the latest phenomenon in the flourishing craft beer industry, which got its start emulating the European brews that defined many of the beer styles we drink today. The move also marks a continuing departure from the status quo of mass market lagers or stouts, demonstrating a willingness of American breweries to explore — and innovate — old world beer styles from Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. The U.S. craft beer scene is so fresh and dynamic, Europeans are becoming as excited about it as Americans, says Mike Hinkley, cofounder of San Diego-based Green Flash Brewing Co. “Even though they’re used to all these amazing European beers, now there’s just more variety.” U.S. craft beer exports grew six-fold during the past five years, jumping from about 46,000 barrels in 2009 to more than 282,500 barrels in 2013, worth an estimated $73 million, according to the Brewers Association, the Colorado-based trade group for the majority of the 3,000 brewing companies in the United States. Of course, it’s still a fraction of overall production; U.S. craft brewers produced a total of 15.6 million barrels last year. Just last week, Green Flash became the first U.S. craft brewery to begin making and selling fresh beer in the European market under a deal with Brasserie St-Feuillien, a Belgian brewery founded in 1873. Under the watchful eye of Green Flash brewmaster Chuck Silva, the brewery is making and selling fresh West Coast IPA for distribution in the U.K., Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Italy. Meanwhile, 500 miles away in Berlin, Stone Brewing Co. is taking a different approach to meeting overseas demand — spending about $25 million to renovate a historic gas works building into a brewery,

packaging and distribution center, restaurant and garden set to open late next year or early 2016. Escondido, California-based Stone — one of the top 10 biggest craft breweries in the U.S. — will make beer for its bistro and distribution throughout Germany and Europe. “The idea that we’re going to go across the pond as it were to brew our style of beers fresh in Europe is an exciting prospect for us,” said Stone CEO and co-founder Greg Koch, who announced the overseas expansion plans over the weekend. “When we started out at Stone 18 years ago, we were inspired by a lot of the European brewers ... and now to see an inspiration bounce back around the world, that’s amazing.” Brooklyn Brewery’s brewmaster Garrett Oliver agreed, saying what used to be a one-way street in the beer world is coming full-circle: “The creative spirit and ideas that have been developing in the U.S. are flowing back in that direction. Now it’s a two-way street and we all have something to offer.” In the spring, New York’s Brooklyn Brewery and Carlsberg Sweden opened a craft brewery and restaurant making new beers that are being distributed throughout Scandinavia. The staff of Nya Carnegie in Stockholm was hired by Brooklyn Brewery and trained by its brewmaster. Brooklyn Brewery is still exporting its own beers to more than 20 countries in addition to its joint venture and also is looking at similar projects in other European capitals, South America and Asia. Around 30 percent of its business is exports. But the thirst for American craft beer hasn’t always been there. When the Brewers Association first gave presentations overseas about the American craft beer scene about 10 years ago, people would laugh aloud. They’d even quote a Monty Python skit comparing American beer to water. “They’re not laughing anymore,” said Bob Pease, chief operating officer for the U.S. beer trade group. “The word is out now that the highest quality beer, the most diverse beer, is coming from American craft brewers.”

New Italian Restaurant Opens in La Pine

By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter On July 24th, the long awaited Casetta di Pasta opened for business with an updated concept for serving Italian to people loving Italian cuisine! Owner David Harms and his red shirts were ready to explain the concept for the newly redecorated restaurant and let new diners experience several options for a meal. Serving lunch and dinner- (Hours are 11-9 Thursday through Monday -closed TUES and WED), the restaurant features 22 pasta dishes that are made to order, and every day there will be a pasta bar featuring the nine or ten most popular pasta dishes at the ready for what he calls Express meals. His express meals come in three sizes $5 small entree, $8 large single entree and $10 with the $10 meal getting the soup or salad (with a half dozen homemade dressing options) and bread. A customer goes up and chooses the pasta he wants and they dish it up onto bamboo based plates that “disintegrate in the landfills in about 100 days” Harms explained. The express concept means

Announcing Winners of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Stars Over Sisters Challenge

By Jeanette Pilak

Sisters-Oregon: The 39th annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS)announced the winners of the Stars Over Sisters Challenge sponsored by The Stitchin Post. The Stars Over Sisters Challenge exhibit was displayed inside Beacham’s Clock Shop in Sisters as part of the local celebration of Quilted In Honor by Island Batik initiative. Stars Over Sisters Challenge quilts featured quilts made from the Quilted in Honor fabric Line by Island Batik. Local judges included Sisters veterans Brett Miller and John Ferguson, and accomplished quilter, Ann Richardson. Judges will scored these creative quilts based on best interpretation of the theme, best design, and best use of color. Viewers visiting Sisters from July 7-13, cast their votes for their favorite quilt in this challenge by visiting the exhibit at Beacham’s Clock Shop. More than 400 votes were submitted for the popular quilts. First Place, with a $200 cash prize, went to Michele Marshall for her quilt, “Fractured Stars Over Sisters”. This quilt also won the popular Viewer’s Choice Award, for an additional cash prize of $100. “I made this quilt to honor Military members of all services,” said Marshall when she learned of her double win. “This quilt is dedicated to our Armed Forces. Many of our soldiers return home from war fractured with mental scars and physical limitations. All return with a heavy burden. It is our duty to support and honor each and every one of these men and women.” Marshall described the significance of her design, “The four small white corner stars represent the four branches of military service. The large Lemoyne stars are missing one point to portray the fragmented life of a soldier returning home. The lone red star represents those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. The flag represents all that we stand for in the United States of America. The Mountains are that of the Three Sisters. The soldier in camo is saluting the flag over the Three Sisters for all the dedicated men and women from Central Oregon that have or are serving in the Armed Forces.”

Fractured Stars Over Sisters, first place winning quilt and Viewer’s Choice winner. Second place honors, and a cash prize of $100, went to Leslie Pade, of Sisters, for her creation of “Northern Encounters.” Third place, and a cash prize of $50, went to Bend’s Sue McMahan, for her contemporary art quilt, “Forever Strong.” Judge John Ferguson summed up his experience saying, “Viewing these quilts was much more emotional than I anticipated. It was a real thrill to see the creative expression come through the work of these quilters.” QUILTED IN HONOR by Island Batik, National Touring Celebrity Quilt Exhibit Quilt Show Day, July 12, 2014 - Sisters School Administration Building Lawn More than 50 quilts designed and made by nationally recognized celebrity quilters as part of a fund raising initiative for Operation Homefront, one of the top military fund raising organizations, and is intended to harness the collective power of the quilting industry to give back to the ones that need it most.

Beginning and ending in historic Drake Park in downtown Bend, this ride features 36 miles of rolling terrain and breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains, rolling forests, and high desert terrain. The 2-3 hour ride derives its name from the two bridges along the route that cross the Deschutes River. The route passes through the charming town of Tumalo, a good place to break before returning to Bend.








A 30-mile loop which starts and finishes in Madras. Enjoy the majestic views of the Three Sisters Mountains, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood, Three Fingered Jack, Lake Billy Chinook and basalt palisades. View eagles, raptors and deer before you pass through the small towns of Culver and Metolius. The Bikeway is on paved roads with light traffic and is suitable for most recreational cyclists.

A spectacular ride, beginning at Sisters, Oregon, and along Oregon Route 242, which follows an 1860s wagon route. Climb 2,000 feet through ponderosa pine forests, past Windy Point and an awesome view of Mt. Washington and a 2,000-year-old lava flow. The 25 mile, 4,000 foot descent snakes down through a windy stretch of switchbacks through the Cascadian forests and out over the McKenzie River. Do the ride over and back in one day or turn around at the top. There are many campgrounds along the way, as well. Starting in Sisters, this route boasts nearly continuous views of the Cascades Mountains as it takes riders past a variety of historical sites, across the Deschutes River and ends at the dramatic walls of Smith Rock and the Crooked River. This Scenic Bikeway is a great single-day ride, but can also be made as a roundtrip in a single day.

from around the Northwest in search of whitewater fun. For many of the local visitors, I refer them to a few local outfitters that run the “Big Eddy” stretch of river between Sunriver and Bend. This 3 mile short section is a great way to introduce yourself to whitewater and is great for kids to try out their skills “Riding the Bull”. This is where one person sits on the front of the raft as it is paddled downstream into smaller waves. With rapids such as “Old Stogy” and “Kenmore” this trip will whet your appetite for more adventurous waters. Enter the town of Maupin Oregon. With rapids like.....”Boxcar”, “Oak Springs” and “Surf City” this is an all-day adventure that will leave you screaming for more!! With a streamside lunch served up between exciting whitewater and scenery, straight out of a country western movie, many memories will be made, as well as plans for a future trip. The town of Maupin is a river town. Split in two by the Deschutes River itself, the Eastern shore is where you will find most of the action centers, while the upper Western shore holds “Old Town”, with its many old buildings and mural paintings depicting the town’s history. It is said that Howard Maupin tracked down the famous local indian, Chief Paulina and shot him when he found him at Paulina Peak, after a series of horse thefts in the Maupin area. My all-time favorite rafting trip on the Deschutes is a 3 day overnight trip that encompasses the 45 river miles above the town Maupin. With rapids like “Whitehorse” and “Buckskin Mary” this is a much more

remote section of river with daily sightings of Big Horn Sheep and Wild Horses along the way. The very historic railroad follows the river for most of its journey upstream. This is the same railroad that runs through Bend and Sunriver. There is a great story behind the building of this railroad that one should learn as you float down the river. To learn more about this story or get river advice....stop by G2G and let’s talk RAFTING!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~>((*)> JON

White Water Rafting The 252 mile long Deschutes River offers some of Oregon’s most exciting rafting. From the “Big Eddy” rapid, here locally, to the many class III and IV rapids found at the town of Maupin, the Deschutes River is a rafters dream. My commercial rafting career started in 1999 with the purchase of Osprey Adventures Rafting Company. At the time, I had ran many of the rivers of the Northwest on my own personal trips, but had not yet catered to paying customers. The first few trips were training trips using friends and family as the guests, learning the ins and outs of the “On the River” recreation industry. After passing the test with them it was on to real paying clients. The most memorable of these was a group of 25 Portland University students. Many of them were from the United Emirates and had never seen a river like the Deschutes, let alone gotten into a raft and hurled down the river through class III and IV rapids. Well, to make a long story short I learned the ins and outs of “Swift Water Rescue” in short order on that trip. Now, many years later, with thousands of river miles and a few multi-day “Swift Water Rescue clinics under my belt, that trip still makes me smile. As the heat of summer arrives, so do rafters

Joey Michael Hodgson continued from page 2 ecology lectures, and presentations focusing on fire detection, and modern day applications. What is it like to be a modern day Lookout Observer? Here at Lava Butte the Lookout job is a High Stress situation for the most part. We are surrounded by communities that rely on and expect early detection and fire suppression. Your homes and businesses are important to us, and so is the surrounding forest. When a fire breaks, we are expected to give an accurate fire report in seconds. Delays and mistakes are unacceptable. Even with new technology, much of the job is the same as it was in your grandparents era. We must know every landmark in our seeing area intimately. Fires with the base not visible, as in fires behind a ridge or mountain, are very difficult to ascertain distance, and only experience and local knowledge of the area can keep you from chewing your nails to the bone hoping

you got it right. During lightning storms we spend our whole day staring at clouds, sky, and forest, which can and frequently does lead to eye strain, headaches, and an overall feeling of exhaustion. Early detection, prompt fire reports, and excellent crews have kept the major fires at bay here in south deschutes country, at least for the 7 years I’ve worked here. As many of you know, high temperatures combined with low humidity, can be an explosive situation for fire growth and spread potential. And then wind changes everything. Be cautious this summer! Joey Michael Hodgson is a lookout, firefighter, extreme kayaker, chainsaw carver, writer, and musician.

Service?” A National Monument can be managed by the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Newberry National Volcanic Monument is located within the Deschutes National Forest so it makes sense for it to be managed by the Forest Service. A National Monument receives the same protections as a National Park however it can be designated by executive order rather than by Congress. Forest Service Rangers on the Monument have the opportunity, every day, to help visitors understand and enjoy the fascinating resources here. We provide information about many things from explaining the volcanic history of the area to recommending a good trail to hike. I mainly work in the northern end of the Monument at Lava Lands Visitor Center and Lava River Cave. Hundreds of people come to these sites every day. Visitors come from all corners of the

United States as well as from many other countries near and far. Many visitors think I must be a geologist but I’m not. My position requires me to know a great deal about the geology of the area. However, my area of interest is public land management specifically related to recreation. I have worked in recreation, interpretation and visitor services for many years and for different government agencies. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Policy and a Master’s degree in Applied Economics. I feel very fortunate to work for the Deschutes National Forest. The Forest Service has been woven into the fabric of American history as an agency that has managed public lands for over a century. It’s exciting and an honor to be part of this heritage as management issues continue to evolve and as public lands continue to be part of so many American’s lives.

Gilchrist Home to Interfor’s New WorldClass Reserve Pine Products Company Invests Millions to Upgrade Mill and Support 450 Local Jobs

“Since 2004, we have invested $15 million in mill upgrades, including $5 million to install the most advanced finishing system in the world,” says Gilchrist Mill Manager Tony Flagor. “This has put our mill on the map as a premium producer in the one-inch board market while supporting 450 local jobs.” Reserve Pine boards are a superior grade product sourced from some of the best Pine stands in North America, and manufactured to Interfor’s exacting standards. They are easy to work with and have an impeccable finished look thanks to the mill’s new state-of-the-art high-speed moulder and precision planer heads. “The equipment provides the accuracy needed to deliver a superb finish quality on both the face and edges of each board,” Flagor said. “We finished installing the system in April, and immediately began to produce Reserve Pine boards. By next year, we expect Reserve Pine will make up half of our annual production.” “This investment illustrates the importance of having federal forest policy that works for local employers like Interfor and puts Oregonians back to work in the woods. The House has passed a bipartisan bill to fix federal forest policy to create jobs, improve forest health, and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire. It’s time for the U.S. Senate to act to get this done for Oregon,” said Representative Greg Walden (R-Hood River). Walden is one of the sponsors of a bipartisan bill approved by the U.S. House last fall that would sustainably increase the harvest on national forests and also from federal O&C Lands by placing some of the O&C Lands into a trust managed by Oregonians. Two-thirds of the timber used by the Gilchrist Mill comes from federal lands. This includes slow-growing Lodgepole and Ponderosa Pine from the high plateau of central Oregon, giving them the distinct grain pattern, tight knots and appealing golden color that makes them ideal for producing the new Reserve Pine products. Available in dimensions from 1x4 to 1x12, the Reserve Pine products have a moulded micro-eased 1/16th radius edge and are ideal for fascia, interior trim, general building construction and pattern blanks. ABOUT INTERFOR Interfor is a growth-oriented lumber company with operations in Canada and the United States. The Company has annual production capacity of 2.6 billion board feet and offers one of the most diverse lines of lumber products to customers around the world. For more information about Interfor, visit our website at www.interfor.com.

Younity: a transformation & a continued dedication to mission Younity Mission:  Younity believes that the power of bringing people together is the most effective way to recognize, respond to and reduce bullying in our communities.  We fund, support and conduct workshops that teach people how to effectively respond to bullying in its many forms, help them discover their own self-power, become more aware of their actions, and develop more compassion in the way they treat others. At the May 5th Five Fusion dinner, a new name and logo for the foundation were announced.  Younity, together we are stronger, reflects the mission of bringing people together to reduce bullying in our communities Arlene Gibson, co-founder, approached DVA Advertising in Bend with an appeal for help. Gary Fulkerson, DVA’s Creative  Services  and  Products Director, said, “When Arlene [Gibson] and Carol [Oxenrider] came…[to us]…, they brought with them a passion and a vision that was so clear and from the heart we knew it was something we had to be a part of.” Fulkerson and his team at DVA devoted at least 100 hours to the re-branding, creating the new name and logo and revamping the mission statement. In addition to Fulkerson, Michelle Roats, Account Executive, Shelly Walters, Design Director, and Nicholas Reese, Writer, all worked on the project gratis. The anti-bullying mission resonated with Fulkerson for a couple different reasons. He has two young sons, ages 7 and 10, and knows this is an issue they will face. Also, when Fulkerson was the age of his oldest son, he became the victim of bullying himself. “My whole 3rd grade year of school was impacted,” he said. Asked about the monetary value of DVA’s contribution to the re-branding, Fulkerson said it was “priceless.” DVA Advertising was established in Bend in 1990 as a full service ad agency with emphasis on destination tourism and health care. The advice Fulkerson has for Oxenrider and Gibson is “Be consistent with the use of the new name.” Another company involved in the re-branding is Dana Signs, a locally owned custom printing and design business. Judy and Brent Grenfell have owned the business for 13 years. When Grenfell and Arlene Gibson ran into each other at a conference in March, Grenfell was happy to offer help. “The timing was right,” said Grenfell regarding the promotional materials donated. Custom t-shirts, sweatshirts, and bags will be printed featuring the Younity logo. Grenfell said the anti-bullying mission also resonated with her. Her daughter attended a Challenge Day at Summit High School and was impacted by the event. Grenfell, a substitute teacher, asked middle-school students what they liked or disliked about their school. Almost every student responded with something related to bullying. “I think that what [Younity] accomplishes is more effective than anything else being done, by providing students with a healthy outlet for an issue as important as bullying,” Grenfell said. Carol Oxenrider said the Serendipity West name had served its purpose and outlived its usefulness. She and Arlene Gibson wanted a new name for the foundation that would reflect the mission and tell a story. Younity, together we are stronger, embodies the idea of coming together to create community connections. The contributions of DVA Advertising and Dana Signs are indeed priceless and immensely appreciated. It is with renewed enthusiasm and sense of purpose that Younity embarks on its mission of combating bullying in Central Oregon communities.

For more information, call 541-883-1833 during business hours. To preview the current exhibit please visit our website at klamathartgallery.blogspot.com Born and raised in Dorris, CA, Motschenbacher grew up in a rural area that fed his appreciation of the beauty in nature. After graduating from Butte Valley High School, he joined the Air Force and married. While raising four children, he attended the Art Institute of Oakland in California studying under Leland Morgan. His talent soon led to the sales of oils, watercolors and pen and ink drawings but family duties caused him to give up his art for 25 years. In 1983 Motschenbacher returned to painting and found that his talent had not ebbed. He resumed studying under noted artists Jeff Nichols and Kumi Pickford and has been painting ever since. Motschenbacher’s paintings range from exotic locales to everyday objects with his main focus on western scenes and wildlife.

Orchid Health Welcomes Julie Willardson, FNP and Dr. Mike Henderson to its Oakridge Clinic

By Oliver Alexander Orchid first appeared in Oakridge in the fall of 2012 with one essential goal: to provide Oakridge residents with exceptional healthcare, enhanced convenience, prices that are fixed and transparent, and access to additional services. After over a years worth of research, recruiting, and preparation, we are excited to announce that we have finalized our model and hired on our provider staff. We interviewed over 20 candidates, though none stood out as much as our lead care provider Julie Willardson and our part-time doctor and Medical Director, Dr. Mike Henderson. Julie recently moved to Oregon from Salt Lake City, Utah where she worked as an assistant professor of nursing at Roseman University. She started her career in healthcare after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Utah in May of 2000. Over her career, she has served in many clinical and hospital positions including oncology, diabetes and wound care, and truly found her passion in Home Health and Hospice. It was this love of community nursing and a desire to return to a small town that led her to continue her education, graduating with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice, becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner in May 2011.

Julie focuses on patient education, preventive medicine, and chronic disease management. Practicing medicine at the Orchid Clinic allows her more time to discuss and individualize treatment plans with patients. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Julie treats children, adolescents, adults and older adults. When she isn’t practicing, she enjoys hiking, camping, and spending time with her husband and two young daughters. Dr. Henderson is a native Oregonian who received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. He then went to Des Moines University in Iowa where he received his Osteopathic Degree (D.O.) in 2001, graduating #21 out of 207 students.  He interned at Legacy Good Samaritan in Portland, and trained in Internal Medicine at Botsford General Hospital in Michigan.  He and his family returned to Oregon in 2005 where he worked as a hospitalist before opening his own family practice clinic.  Dr. Henderson is very pleased to be able to practice medicine and contribute to the community of Oakridge. The Orchid clinic is a place where the art and science of medicine can be practiced for the benefit of each individual patient and the social contract between patient and physician can be restored.

As an Internal Medicine Physician, Dr. Henderson primarily treats adults, manages chronic conditions, emphasizes patient education, and provides scientifically validated preventive medicine. Dr. Henderson is excited to create a patient centered relationship because it is paramount to good medicine. A patient centered relationship simply comes down to time - time to listen, understand, and teach. Our highly skilled and compassionate providers are eagerly awaiting our August 11th grand opening! We are excited to offer the people of Oakridge and Westfir the highest quality of patient care and we invite all to our grand opening celebration on Sunday, August 10th from 11am-3pm at the Orchid clinic located at 47815 Highway 58. If you have questions or would like to enroll as a patient, please call us at 541-782-8304. Thank you to everyone who has supported us this far, and we look forward to seeing you soon! – Oliver & Orion Founders, Orchid Health

About The Mountain Pass Kookers Since our nation began, American people have been cooking in Dutch Ovens. Once a necessity as the pioneers traveled across the plains, in today’s world cooking in cast iron pots is a coveted skill and enjoyable pastime hobby. Groups of people in various parts of the country are gathering to cook together, and learn tips and tricks from each other.


In the Oakridge / Westfir area, a group of friends and neighbors have been cooking together once a month for several years. The Mountain Pass Kookers is their name and cooking with Dutch Ovens is their game! Now it’s time to spread the joy of outdoor cooking to the public, and we are hosting our first annual Cookoff, complete with crafts and wares, music, and delicious food.

Chicano: Book Review of Former Mayor Files for Re-election La Pine Resident Sheila O’Malley By Dan Varcoe, Eagle Reporter By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

During the past month or so, the news has been splashed with stories about young children leaving Central America and trekking across Mexico to take a chance on the land of the free and the brave! Hundreds arrive every day by cover of night, escaping untellable violence and abuse where they were from to find a better life for themselves. No, more than that- to find a life for themselves! O’Malley, who moved from La Pine to Arizona, then to Aspen, Colorado, experienced these kinds of stories first hand and wanted to speak to it by writing an amalgamation of tales into a first person account of a young boy who starts the trek to America 2with his mother, father and baby sister when his father trades his Mexican land to a coyote (illegal transporter) for passage to the states. He starts in Naco, Mexico south of the Arizona border

I sat down with the Mayor a few days ago and to find out if he was planning on running for re-election. He didn’t hesitate in giving me an emphatice, Yes”! I then asked, “What are some of the motives for running for the office, again”?

The ever-rising use of social media has not made their journey any easier. Social media often shows our girls an unhealthy or unattainable perception of beauty, as well as creating additional opportunities for bulling. With so much on their shoulders, they need a place to go where they can be fully accepted and heard, and their uniqueness celebrated. As the group facilitator of Girls Circle, “I work hard to create a safe and empowering environment where each girl can flourish,” explained Ms. Clark. “By exploring themes such as, ‘Expressing Myself,’ ‘Accepting Different Parts of Myself,’ ‘Giving Voice to Feelings,’

The New Senior

By T. Myers

Random Thoughts It has been a few months since I did a random thoughts column for the New Senior and my mind is full of things to get out there- (move them off the shelf so I have room for more later-so to speak) and I hope you will take each thought and think about it- a regular thought spot, as it were! Too bad plans are not blueprints! Why do lesbians dress in men’s clothes if they do not like men and want to be with women when there are plenty of comfortable clothes in the women’s department? Shakespeare understood exactly what it was like to be a human all the way down to the human heartbeat- which is what inspired his Iambic Pentameter verse (dah-dum, dah-dum, dah-dum, dahdum, dah-dum= 5 heartbeats per line.) It fits in for any time period- like the verse I created about the Jewish victims of the holocaust being rescued by the kindness of strangers during WWII:

The cost of life became a threat for all Without more gold the Jews would not survive. The Germans gathered up each precious ounce But, it was not enough to save them all. The quiet Rabbi went to seek some help. Hitler would not win against the power Of the Pope who chose to join the struggle. Catholics and Jews alike took a chance That led to many Jews being rescued. Etc., etc., etc. Human heartbeats. What does a senior need to be comfortable when they travel? Anything more or less? I have really been pondering the novel 1984 by George Orwell. During the sixties, when we read it in High School it was a scary idea to be watched and monitored. None of the New Senior

generation thought it anything that could ever happen in our lifetime- we were too careful, too conscious of our freedoms. It is our children and their children who have become Big Brother. They are watching everyone with their cell phones and instant tweets and textscommunications and pictures of what happens everywhere. They are Big Brother and it has come to pass- and they do not even know that they have broken the rules of privacy or common sense to satisfy their own selfish needs to communicate instantly! Do you think about what you are doing when you eat a delicious apple from the first of the fall crops? How it tastes, how its juices cover your tongue with sweet and sour notes? How the texture is so crisp and so different from the apples you are eating a month or two later? It is one of life’s simple joys. Instead of drinking the first cup of coffee in the morning by throwing it down as fast as you can to speed up your day, try taking a moment to sit and savor the flavor and appreciate the little thrill your body gets from it! How important is it for you to keep in contact with your family members like first cousins and their children? My sister and I have been going to annual Cousin Events every summer and it seems like lots of effort and at the same time, it is the only real time we find out what has happened to the family members through the year. This year we first cousins from the west coast decided that we want to try to get the 89 members of my Grandfather’s immediate family together for a big reunion and it should be interesting to see how it goes. (In the past 150 or so members would meet from my grandpa’s side of the family and after everyone in his generation passed away, we dropped the notion and it has been years since any effort has been made.) Now it is up to the group of us who are children of the three remaining children of Grandpa, to take on the project- or lose it all together! What should we do? What would you do? Enjoy the warm summer sun and do not complain about the heat- we have so few of these wonderful summer days to enjoy and we should not waste them!

Urban Renewal Klamath Falls) on the way up to La Pine. He had seen the sign-‘small town bright future’ and he said to himself, “This town gets it!” and that is why he stopped to tell us that he saw that we seem ready to take moving into the future to a new level. He was on his way to Idaho and just had to take the time to tell the Chamber how important he thought it was. “The timing could not have been better!” Gawith reported. “After a two week period of time, emotions were calm and the councilors got down to the business at hand passing the motion unanimously.” Now the City Council will begin to make preparations for the first steps in beginning the process to start changing La Pine for the better.

parking lot on August 13th. The community is invited to attend, take the tour, get answers to questions and enjoy a nice BBQ meal. For more information call the Health Center at 541-536-3435 to get appointments or ask questions. Continued from page 15 The Public Works committee is on hiatus for the rest of the summer. City Manager, Rick Allen, suggests that you go online to listen to council comments about the decision at the end of Wednesday’s meeting. “In the fall we will begin to look at what we want to do, what our priorities are and how we want to look in the designated district.” Allen told The Eagle. “It will be about a year before there is any money in the URD fund and that gives us the time we need to make the first of our plans of action.” The City will be preparing to move utilities for the new stop light in 2015 on the corner of 1st and Reed Rd. where the streets meet HWY 97. For more information you can call 541-536-1432.

Tickets are available at the ReStore for a 9 am coffee and doughnut break and a starting place for the annual tour of local gardens and Chicken coops.

Chicano Continued from page 19 They are warned by the vicious man that if the baby cries when they cross the border, that he will kill the family. No one moves. No one says a word and the boy begins his personal account by describing how the sweat on his young back makes his clothes wet. Everything intensifies as the near the border. The truck pulls to a stop and the mother quietly warns her son to leave by first hiding under the truck in the dark and running away as fast as he can-‘and don’t look back’ she tells him. He trusts his mother so much he is able to squeeze under the truck and run when the Coyote starts lining up the people and shooting them. The little boy with a compass, a back pack carefully planned and packed by the mother has a few of the basic things he will need to survive. His mother’s words about heading north and west to find the river, the knowledge he has already accumulated through close relationships with his mother and his father through his young life and the careful warnings of what to do to avoid being captured.

The book takes you on the trip with the boywho is mistaken for being a young American boy that disappeared after a house fire. He is taken for being Gabriel and by the time he has gone many miles north and he trusts the woman who mistakes his identity, he becomes the American boy. He moved from Arizona to Aspen where he does well in school, learns to ski and with the help of a Sheriff, learns to shoot. At nineteen, he finally feels trusting enough to tell his real story and he is taken back to where nine years earlier, his family was killed near the border. The little compass helps him find the site and authorities discover the tragic gravesite. He is able to assume his real identity and a few surprises teach him even more about being a strong young man. The novelette is a fast read, and to see it on the pages- instead of the TV is revelatory. Consider adding it to your own reading list. Ms. O’ Malley is scheduled to appear for a book signing on August 4th- Monday at the Chamber at 5-7 PM. The event is free to the public, so come in and meet the author in person!

Rosland Campground Continued from page 16

we have added the large (rentable) picnic shelter- named after long-time park volunteer, Chuck Lee, is situated at the bottom of the park, near the big meadow and river trail. Families and river users have been playing and staying at the campground and the Park District is doing their best to improve the experience of the users for the future. The most exciting thing about the park is the new vault toilet on the top of the group campground area and you will not believe the new soft landing on the river bank! The partnership with ODFW and the Army Corps of Engineers has stabilized the curve in the river bank and they have built a reinforced ramp that lets you walk people and kayaks and floatee devices right into the river. It is beautiful. Amazing after so many years and Schulz was able to get the Rosland Enterprise Project done with the help of Vic Russell Construction, Rick Wirf Electric, volunteers like the Eagle Scouts who revamped the amphitheater and are finishing the new playground area and all of the others who clean, and care for the Campground throughout the year. Even the roads have been crowned and resurfaced. Stop by and visit. Take a picnic lunch or organize a group of friends to enjoy the park before the end of the season on Labor Day. Parents should be aware of the last few sessions of the Summer Camp program - is organized through the Park District and it gives the participants a wide variety of experiences to enjoy over the summer months. Karen

Miller, the Park District Manager, has gone to great lengths to provide lessons in rocketry and robotics, swimming experience, a spirit week where the kids got to attend a bend Buck baseball game and learn about team support and many great playtime and learning opportunities for children. Her team of young camp counselors has been sharing energy and leadership with the kids and everyone is having a wonderful time. When you look at the cost of regular childcare services for kids, the price of the summer camp day long experience with meals included is less than half the price of the usual fees for taking care of your children. Fall football is right around the corner and Bo De Forest is registering the participants for Football Camp and fall teams. The football camp on August 13-14-is a great way for players to come together and refresh their skills and learn about team participation. DeForest and his group of coaches does their best to prepare young players for moving from LPRD teams to the High School teams as they grow through the program. Last year they added teams from out of the area to their schedule and attendance at the games and in the sports program is increasing with popularity every year. You can get applications and information at the LPRD desk in the big building or call 541536-2223 for information. Karen Miller, Bo DeForest, Tara Modugno, Ralph Torpin and all of the LPRD staff will be happy to answer questions.

Italian Restaurant Continued from page 6 When you order from the regular dinner are perfect- I came on the first day and it was menu- it costs a little more time, but everything is cooked to order just for you! $12 is the price for a full cooked to order meal. Did I mention he makes lasagna, too? He makes Pizzas, Paninis and Calzones to order and serves soups of the day, Ratatouille and Zuppa Tuscany every day. (The menu is huge with many options in each category of food served.) I approached the counter and chose the clams in butter and olive oil. For my salad I tried the home made blue cheese and the homemade Caesar salad dressing. Later I asked for a sample of their cheesy garlic Alfredo sauce and their marinara sauce to taste. I have always judged a pizza restaurant by their cheese pizza and Italian by their marinara and Alfredo sauces and both passed muster. I also tried the home made gelato in the lime flavor and it was delicious! (As are his baked goodies at the front counter.) This is not a red and white tablecloth joint. It is a fast little diner. Everything is done up in an Italian theme and while they are working out the kinks before the Grand Opening, there are a few things that will be different to the average customer. Paper plates and plastic silverware are used and there are a couple of misspellings on the wall signs. The garlic bread was a little cold when it arrived via the waitress. The buffet food temps will be constantly adjusted until they

working out pretty well. But at the same time, everyone is friendly and as they learn what everything tastes like and can make personal recommendations about which pasta dish will rock your world; there are several real pluses besides the Express idea of faster food service: They have a great coffee drink and Italian soda menu in 16 and 20 ounce sizes. The pizza is a personal pan pizza with a choice of varieties or toppings you can choose yourself and it is good to have another pizza spot. There are a dozen salads on the menu and all of the dressings are freshly made. The pasta dishes use spaghetti, linguini, and penne and the meat sauce, marinara and Alfredo sauces will really please you. The desserts are freshly made and the gelato is a real old world treat. Harms is a good chef and now we have a place where you can go to get a meal or stop for a cup of coffee and dessert (GOOD FOR DATE NIGHT PEOPLE) anytime between 11-9 at his cute new restaurant! Casetta di Pasta is located next to La Pine insurance south of the Mountain View Motel in the old Cindy’s Restaurant location on HWY 97. 541-876-5430. www.caasettadipasta.com and casettadipasta@ yahoo.com Take out is available! Bon Appetito! And good luck to you and your staff, David!

The Foodie Column

The Season for Summer Salads is Upon Us! By T. Myers, Eagle Reporter

There is no getting around how refreshing and delicious a bowl of greens with added vegetables and proteins can do for the hurried cook and the rest of the family on a hot summer day. You come home from work after a long day and the last thing you want to do is spend time over a hot stove so you open up the door to the fridge and voila! It is full of lettuce, celery, carrots radishes, colored peppers, red tomatoes, green and sweet onions, apples, feta cheese, and cheddar. Cooked beans, nuts and left over meats-chicken or pork! Have some corn chips or croutons? Use them as a topping. What do you do? Peel, wash, slice and dice and suddenly it is salad! With a variety of toppings you can change up the main course to make any picky family member happy. When you think ahead for the evening while you are making your morning coffee, why not boil some water and you can do a Jell-O with canned or fresh fruits (Read the label to determine if the fruit need to be cooked so it does not break down the

enzymes and gelatin like fresh pineapple does.) If you make the Jell-O in the morning, dessert will be ready, too. I try to keep a bottle of that whip cream you shake and squirt on top for a sweet little finish. What about dressings? I do not appreciate bottle dressings because they always taste off to me. I like fresh ones instead. Here are a few easy favorites: Blue Cheese: In a medium sized bowl put in 1/41/2 cup butter milk, 4 oz. of crumbled blue cheese, 1 T. lemon juice or vinegar, salt and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly, but do not break down the crumbles. When you are satisfied that everything is mixed, add 1 cup of good mayo, stir and store in the fridge for a day to blend the flavors. This will last about a week before it begins to weep. You can add a teaspoon of horseradish or garlic powder for a change up. If you want to make good vinaigrette, you will need ¼ cup of fresh lemon juice and the zest of the lemon, 1-2 T of good Dijon mustard as an emulsifier and 1 cup minus of good oil. You can herbs or just use the 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of black

pepper to finish the mix. This stores well in the fridge. Just shake and drizzle over the greens in a bowl and toss, then add the toppings after you dish a portion onto your plate. Greek salads are the rage and my favorite is made with fresh tomatoes, green or red grapes, sweet onion slices and halved Greek Olives. The dressing is unique to these salads and it is made with ¼ cup fresh lemon juice and the zest of the lemon, 1-2 T sugar, 2/3 cup oil, black pepper and a large handful of both fresh mint and one of parsley chopped fine.. I make the dressing with the onion slices in it and pour it over the tomato and grape mixture when ready to serve. I add crumble feta to the top and serve as a main dish salad with good bread. I have been serving fancy decaf at night and it would also be wonderful to have a cup of mint tea to sip outside on the patio as the air cools down at the end of the day. Enjoy these lovely evenings- but make it easy on yourself! Bon Appetit!

Upgrade Your Food for Increased Energy, Better Sleep and Less Pain!

By Celeste Davis Certified Health Coach Bonnie, was a fit, active business woman in her younger years, but found herself at age 68 experiencing pain on a daily basis. The pain zapped her energy, kept her from activities she loved and filled her mind with fear...was this how her life would go as she aged? Several of Bonnie’s friends participated in our My Busy Healthy Life program and dropped weight and experienced amazing changes in their energy levels, ability to get good sleep and blood test numbers so Bonnie decided to give it a try. In just 6 weeks Bonnie dropped 10 pounds, something she had not been able to do in years, but more important than that her pain began to decrease and her energy levels soared. Today Bonnie is able to run her family business, travel with her husband and help others experience new energy, health and vitality. Ann, in her early 50’s, had been struggling with fibromyalgia that drastically affected her ability to enjoy life. Ann had reversed fibromyalgia 15 years earlier and had extensive knowledge in healthy eating and lifestyle practices, in fact, at one time she enthusiastically taught others. However, a busy life and some emotional setbacks threw Ann off track and she fell back into the Standard American Diet and Lifestyle of fast food and fast living until her body said STOP and sent her back to bed with the unrelenting pain of fibromyalgia and accompanying depression. 3 different times in one day Ann saw information about our My Busy Healthy Life program. She felt God calling her to try it. In just 2 weeks Ann experienced a 60% reduction in her pain and symptoms. She is feeling strong and hopeful about her future. What was the common factor for these women? They Upgraded Their Food. They saw rapid improvement in their pain and emotional well being

Three Tips to Having More Money

By Kali Lane, Licensed Massage Therapist & Certified Access Consciousness Bars Facilitator

If there is anything that is not working in your life, there has to be some sort of unconsciousness around it. The more aware you are of what is actually going on in any situation, the easier it is to change it. Here are three tips that can shift your awareness and increase your money flows.

• Become aware of your expenses.

For one month, write down everything you spend. If you don’t know how much you require, you won’t know how much you need to make.

• Become aware of your income. Of course the next piece would be to know how much you are actually bringing in every month. You may even find that you actually make more than you think

• Put away 10% of everything you receive and never spend it. Do you like having money or spending money? Most people enjoy spending money, but having money is not a priority. Whatever you honor with your money, more of that gets created. If you honor your debt first, you get more debt. If you honor your bills first, you often get more bills. If you honor yourself first, you will actually begin receiving more money! By choosing to have money, not just get rid of it, you bring more into your life. If you would really like to have more money, put away 10% of everything you bring in and never spend it. This is not a savings account; it is a having account. Ten percent is a small enough amount that you probably won’t even have to give up your morning latte. Usually after several months (it varies for everyone), you start feeling like you have money. With this new perspective, rather than dipping into your reserves when you “need” money, you realize that you can just create more and don’t have to deplete your savings. The reason you don’t spend it is to shift where you are functioning from. If you are functioning from lack or that there is only a limited amount of money available to you, you are more likely to deplete whatever money you have because that is the only place you can see it being available to you. You might have to make yourself not spend it in the beginning, but what happens over those months, as you start to feel like you have money, you realize that you have choice with money. Whereas before your only choice was to spend it, now you can choose to spend it or choose not to spend it and create more. That shift can be pivotal for completely changing your relationship with money. Quick tip: If you put away your 10%, you will also want to add that into your monthly expenses, so you create that much. Total all of your current expenses and add ten percent on top of that to know what your target income is.

What I noticed was … that nobody noticed. SCOOTR (South Central Oregon Outreach & Toy Run, Inc.) – update by Ann Gawith, SCOOTR Treasurer

The SCOOTR folks thought by not having their usual fundraising events that they would be missed…and when people asked about the lack of events, they would look into the reason and find that the organization was looking for new members, new blood, new ideas. Well, The Icebreaker Poker Run didn’t happen, and then the biggie, The Summer Eruption didn’t happen and guess what … nobody noticed! Granted the organization has been funding youth groups and organizations in the area much like always because they had funds left from previous years, so I guess the absence of SCOOTR has not really been felt. Here is what people will notice in the very near future however … the Blue Lightning Mat Club will perhaps not be able to attend state or national wrestling competitions, or the club members will not have the proper singlets to wear ... the South County Little League will have to find additional sponsors for a team in all divisions … the La Pine girls softball league will look to someone else for a new pitching machine or other necessary equipment … the La Pine Library will be on the look-out for another group to fund a kids area in the library … the FACT people will be looking for funding to pick up the slack … the FBLA will have to do more fundraising to send students to the national competition … the NJROTC will be in the same boat. For 15 years until last year, SCOOTR also gave out toys and clothes to needy kids at Christmas … spending an average of $20,000 per year. They made the decision last year to let the Toys for Tots Program take over that piece in order to have more funds for the other youth groups and needs in the community (that is the money they are currently giving out) Are you noticing that SCOOTR is and has been an essential resource for many, many youth oriented organizations in our area, and that when the money is gone and there are no more fundraisers the slack will need to be picked up by others in our community? The SCOOTR members that are still meeting are a passionate group that care deeply about the needs of our youth right here in our own community. So they have made the decision to have another event this year as they do not want to see the money just go away. As a poker run is a fairly simple event to produce (and that is what they have the energy for) they are going to have the new Summer’s End Poker Run, September 20, 2014.

No sale by owner: Americans with lower mortgage rates hold tightly onto homes

WASHINGTON (AP) — Would-be home sellers across the country are grappling with a once-in-a-lifetime problem: They have mortgage rates so absurdly low it would hurt them financially to sell. Doing so would mean giving up an irresistible rate in exchange for a new mortgage carrying a rate up to a percentage point higher. Their monthly payments would be larger even for a house of the same price. That’s discouraging some people from selling, thereby limiting the supply of available homes and contributing to slower home sales. It’s a significant shift from the way the U.S. housing market has worked for the past 30 years. For most of that time, whenever a homeowner decided to trade up to a better home, mortgage rates usually were lower than the last time they had bought. That helped make a new purchase seem more attractive. But that is changing. The average rate on a 30-year mortgage fell below 4 percent in late 2011 and reached a record low level of 3.3 percent in November 2012. It didn’t top 4 percent again until mid-2013. Homeowners took advantage of the lower rates and a refinancing boom ensued. More than one-third of homes with a mortgage now have rates below 4 percent, real estate data provider CoreLogic estimates. Yet mortgage rates now average 4.2 percent. That is still low by historical standards but up about three-quarters of a point from a year and a half ago. And should mortgage rates rise later this year and next, as many economists expect, even more homeowners will be affected. As a result, many homeowners with low rates are staying put.

Others are moving and buying new homes, but keeping their old ones and renting them. Both choices mean that fewer homes are listed for sale, which drives up prices. Higher prices and limited selection have put the brakes on a housing recovery that began in 2012. And slower home sales, in turn, drag down economic growth. Fewer sales mean lower commissions for real estate agents. Sales of furniture, appliances and garden supplies also take a hit. Mark Fleming, chief economist at CoreLogic, estimates that as many as 3.6 million homeowners are unlikely to sell this year because they would have to give up a lower rate. “They got the deal of the century,” says Glenn Kelman, CEO of real estate brokerage Redfin. “I don’t think in 100 years anyone will be lending money at 3.5 percent. How do you walk away from a deal like that?” You’d think Ryan Carson, an attorney in Seattle, would be ready to sell. He and his wife have one young child and they are expecting twins. They are going to hire a live-in nanny, which means there will be five people living in their four-bedroom house. “I could probably use the extra space, honestly,” he said. And he would make money off the sale, since his home’s market value is above what he paid. But Carson, 39, has a 30-year, 3.85 percent mortgage rate, so he isn’t going anywhere. He refinanced into the lower rate last summer, reducing his monthly payment to $2,200 from $2,600. “I have no interest right now in selling,” he said. He and his wife plan to remodel instead. A shortage of homes for sale has plagued the housing market since late 2012. The number of available homes last year was the equivalent of just 4.9 months’ worth of sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. That’s far below the typical figure of 6 months. Inventory has recovered somewhat this year, partly because the spring buying season is underway, but it was still equal to just 5.6 months of supply in May. Meanwhile, sales of existing homes have fallen 5 percent in the past year. Yet prices rose 8.8 percent nationwide during the same period, according to CoreLogic, partly because of the limited supply. What economists call “rate lock-in” is one of several reasons so few houses are for sale. Another factor is that almost 40 percent of homeowners still don’t have enough equity to enable them to sell. Some are “underwater,” with a mortgage higher than the home’s value. Others may have so little equity that they can’t afford to pay off the sales costs and put a down payment on their next property. “We are in a uniquely difficult period for matching buyers and sellers,” says Stan Humphries, chief economist at real estate data provider Zillow. Home prices are expected to keep rising in the coming months, though at a slower pace than the double-digit gains that occurred earlier this year. Higher prices should lower the number of underwater homes and enable more people to sell. But as the number of underwater homes falls, several studies

suggest the impact could be offset by higher mortgage rates, which would increase the number of homeowners facing interest rate “lock-in.” Most economists expect mortgage rates to rise later this year as the Federal Reserve ends its bond-purchase program, which is intended to keep borrowing rates low. “Mortgage rate lock-in is going to be a major challenge for the housing market going forward,” Humphries said. “It is going to be a constant tug of war between buyers on one side ... and mortgage rate lock-in on the other side.” Humphries forecasts that rates will reach 5 percent by the first three months of next year. That would mean those buying or refinancing now, at the current rates of about 4.1 percent, might never want to sell either. A 2011 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York concluded that for every $1,000 increase in a homeowner’s annual mortgage payment, the likelihood that homeowner would sell fell as much as 16 percent. Paul Bernard, a recruiter in New York City, says the issue has begun to interfere with some of his clients’ willingness to move for a new job. In one recent case, an employee at a large technology firm decided to postpone a job-related move to San Francisco partly because it would have forced him to take out a mortgage at a half-percentage point higher than his current one. “The job market in some cases is less mobile than it used to be,” he said. Low rates have combined with rising rents nationwide to make renting out a home, rather than selling, more attractive. Renters are now paying 19 percent more of their income to rent, compared with historical averages, according to real estate data provider Zillow. Santiago Garcia, 30, and his wife both work from home and recently felt their 2-bedroom condominium was getting cramped. The couple was also thinking of starting a family. So in February they bought a new home in Oxford, Massachusetts, about 45 minutes from Boston. But the mortgage rate on their condo is just 2.95 percent, so they decided to keep it and rent it out. The mortgage is so low because its rate is adjustable after 10 years. Their monthly mortgage payment is only $540. But they are renting it out for $1,200 a month. “The cash flow was so much, it was an easy decision,” Garcia said.
