La Pine City News
La Pine’s New City Manager Ready to Begin By T. Myers, Eagle Team, Reporter and Staff Writer
Sitting down for a few minutes with our new City Manager, Steve Hasson, the Eagle has learned that our new community leader is ready to help La Pine move into the future. During the first interview Hasson was quick to explain that, “The most important thing (for him) right now is to be a good student.” At that point he rolled out a look at his steps to become aware of the community and its needs. New La Pine City Manager is ready to help the community move into the future.
City of La Pine Submits Public Transit Grant Application to Purchase COIC Cascades East Transit Dial-A-Ride Services Submitted by City of La Pine La Pine, Oregon February 24, 2012: The City of La Pine has submitted a Public Transit Grant application to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to purchase 12 months of service from COIC-Cascades East Transit (CET) in order to provide a local dial-a-ride service that extends from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Saturday within the CET Service Area. This bus service is primarily designed to support the needs of La Pine’s “transit dependent” community – seniors, people with disabilities, and low income households but will also be available to the public at large. The grant application reflects a cooperative partnership between the City of La Pine and Deschutes County and results from ongoing discussions between these public organizations about how to improve transit service for local bus ridership. The local grant match is $5,000 with an expected match provided by ODOT in the sum of $43,685 for a total funding of $48,685. The City of La Pine is excited about the prospects of enhanced bus ridership for our citizens. Y7

“We are in a transition from county to municipal control,” Hasson explained. “It is important to know with some degree of confidence, what our town’s priorities are.” The city is currently preparing to assimilate the Sewer and Water Districts into the City Hall. Hasson is aware that each one of these districts has its own culture and that the change will cause people discomfort. He explained that there will be pushback and that he is ready for it. Along with knowing about the changes that will occur as the city grows its agencies, Hasson wants to consider land use planning for La Pine. The city needs to define whose rules will govern the area. Does the City control what La Pine does, or does the County still have governance? Steve will spend time with local constituents during the next weeks and months to find out what is on peoples’ minds. He wants to get to know the members of the community and he is ready to open his doors- or go to the source to get an accurate picture of what goes on here by visiting with local business owners, taking a look at local roads, buildings and signage. He wants to know the town and what it has to offer so he is prepared to help the people and businesses that are located in the heart of it. Hasson also has a goal to establish La Pine as a larger presence in Central Oregon. “A known quantity always fares better than an unknown quantity,” Hasson quipped. “We want the region to know that we are open for business!” We continued to go through his mental list of goals for the future. Hasson’s planning background played into his next goal. He is looking at the way the town is laid out. “It is the evolution of a settlement pattern and we have all this ‘stuff’ on the ground. How do we start organizing and orchestrating so we are all on the same page?” The City is prepared to work. Hasson says that we will get there, “but we have to work within the economic means… And we must be sensitive to the business communities’ pocketbooks and not try to do too much, too fast.” Steve Hasson invites you to stop by his office and introduce yourself. You can call the City for an appointment, too. (541-536-1432). 2nd and 4th Wednesday City Council meetings and Work Sessions are also open to the public. The Eagle will continue to interview Mr. Hasson regularly and he is invited to contribute to the paper when he needs to let the community know what the City is doing. Y7

Emergency Preparedness Tips & Techniques
We’ll be talking about survival and preparedness technology in the next few columns. Communication, in particular, is important in the aftermath of a disaster, and we’ll be contacting local emergency responders to find out what everybody can do. This article from SurvivalCommonSense.com guest author Andrew Robbins hits some important points about home security. - Leon Top left: Vicki and Vic Russell . Top right: Kathy DeBone and Justin Cutler. Bottom left: Howard Finck and Greg Price. Bottom right: Tony DeBone. talked about fundraising ideas and each person took on a task to follow up with before the plan goes into place. Right now, the Park District is involved in developing their community school program and they are looking for sponsorship for kids to attend the after school program. Two weeks ago they revealed the renovations that have already been completed inside the LPEC at an evening event on the 3rd of February. Now, it is up to the community to continue the great work that has already been accomplished. You can help raise money for the second phase of the renovation. The fundraising is designed to take the burden of costs off the taxpayers and still move forward with the plans to dazzle the community with a wonderful event center that can be enjoyed by the entire area. For information about how to help the LPRD Foundation raise the matching dollars for Phase II, Call the LPRD office at 541-536-2223 and ask for Justin Cutler. You can make a difference for the youth of La Pine and for the families that live in our area! Y7 (Continued from Front Page)
Deputy Pete Penzenik
top honors. Two of Pete’s co-workers, the La Pine Fire District personnel and the members of the lodge gathered at 5:30PM for pictures and then they gave Penzenik the award. Trying to get the reluctant winner into the lodge to accept it was the biggest struggle. Penzenik is known for being humble about his contributions to the community. Slated to retire soon, the timing worked out and now our local deputy finally has the recognition he has earned. Be sure you congratulate Pete Penzenik when you see him. Y7
A 2011 FBI study marked a 3.7 percent decrease in property crimes – burglary, larceny-theft, and vehicle theft – but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the importance of home security. Here is a short list of things people can do to help protect their home. And while none of these are surefire crime stoppers, they involve methods that are geared toward preventing an intrusion before it starts. 1. Hit up the hardware store. See what you can find. Not so sure about the locks on your doors? Invest in some new ones. You can get some exterior lighting that’s perfect for shining a light on any potential intruders. 2. Don’t advertise. Got some a massive flat screen television or the latest stereo system or gaming console? That’s wonderful, but don’t be a show off. If these things are in an area where there are windows, consider drawing the shade or closing the curtains when you step out or turn in for the night. Don’t give intruders any extra incentives. 3. Man’s best friend. An intruder is less likely to pop in for a visit when a dog is present. Dogs also have a keen sense of hearing and can serve as early warning signs of an intrusion in progress. You can also have your dog guard the home, but you consult with a professional before starting any guard dog training of your own. You don’t want your canine companion attacking an invited guest. 4. Bear arms. Make sure you can safely and securely store away firearms. Get proper training in firearm use. 5. Look into a home security system. There are plenty of them on the market and a few of them are so easy to operate, there is no problem instructing children how to use them. Just remember to research and shop around for the one that’s right for you.
You never know when life will throw a curve ball, and the best you can do is prepare. – by Andrew Robbins

GE Launches GeoSpring™ – Its Most Energy-Efficient, Hybrid Electric Water Heater
The GeoSpring has the same footprint and electrical connections as the standard electric water heater, making it easy to install. The GeoSpring provides the same amount of hot water as traditional 50-gallon standard electric water heaters. The integrated electronics on the GeoSpring’s control panel offer exclusive features, such as Vacation mode, which will lower the water temperature to 50 degrees for the duration of a trip, and then automatically reenergize itself on the day before the homeowner’s return. The GeoSpring offers more control over water temperature, allowing you to adjust in one degree increments from 100 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Consumer should research state and local tax credits and utility rebates for purchasing the ENERGY STAR-qualified energy-efficient water heater for additional savings. GeoSpring will be available at national retailers in March such as Lowe’s and Sears and national plumbing distributors such as Ferguson as well as many local retailers and distributors. Estimated retail price: $1,199-$1,299. More information can be found online at www.GEAppliances.com. Y7

technology from consumers who want to save money on their energy bills and support the GE employees in the U.S.”
A standard electric water heater can cost an average homeowner $520 every year to operate. The GeoSpring costs an average of $195 to operate annually and uses 62 percent less electricity than a standard electric water heater and will pay for itself in less than 2.5 years.* The GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater combines energy-saving heat-pump technology with traditional electric heating systems used in most conventional water heaters on the market today. This hybrid technology is designed to absorb heat in ambient air and transfer it into the water. Since this requires much less energy than the energy used to generate radiant heat – as used in a conventional electric tank water heater – the GeoSpring Hybrid Electric Water Heater is more economical to operate. “Approximately 50 percent of U.S. households use a standard electric water heater,” said Downer. “If 25 percent chose a GeoSpring instead of a standard 50-gallon electric water heater, more than four billion pounds of CO2 emissions on the U.S. grid could be avoided annually – equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 360,000 cars on U.S. roads. That’s a powerful way consumers can help the environment.”
$38 million dollar GE investment turns vacant U.S. factory into vibrant, high-tech GeoSpring™ Hybrid Water Heater manufacturing operation. February 10 was a big day for GE Appliances and the resurgence of U.S. manufacturing. It’s the day GE announced the opening of its GeoSpring™ Hybrid Water Heater manufacturing facility at Appliance Park in Louisville, Ky. The $38 million investment in the new product and a revitalized facility is the first milestone in commitments GE has made since 2009 to invest a total of $1 billion ($800 million in Louisville) and create more than 1,300 new jobs in the U.S. by 2014. Lean manufacturing and a more competitive wage structure for new employees led to the selection of Louisville as the production site for the new water heater instead of China, where an earlier version of the product was made. Not only can the new product now be made more competitively in the U.S., the GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater, developed by the Louisville team, has an enhanced feature set, offers better performance with greater energy savings and will be more affordable for consumers. To address consumers’ growing desire to save money and be environmentally conscious, the GeoSpring will save an average consumer $325 every year on their utility bills. “There are very few products for your home that will save homeowners as much money as the GeoSpring,” said Stephen Downer, GE product general manager for water products. “With the state of today’s economy, we’re betting on acceptance of this

THE NEWBERRY EAGLE • MARCH 1, 2012
in Newberry Country Amtrak - Who Says Green Can’t Be Fun?
By Pam Cosmo, Granger & Newberry Eagle Team You may not be aware of it, but we have access to passenger railroad service that provides some of the most energy-efficient transportation possible: Amtrak. The closest railroad station is in Chemult. Klamath Falls and Eugene are also possibilities, and Bend has the Greyhound Bus as a shuttle to the train stations. They can all get you on the Coast Starlight, a luxurious European-style train with all the comforts of home. From their website one can read that “Amtrak is 17 percent more energy efficient than either commercial airlines or automobiles.” Amtrak has been upgrading both their tracks and their trains in recent years. Their cars and locomotives use less fuel, and several of their railroad lines have been converted to electricity. Freight rail has a fuel consumption rate of 11.5 times more energy efficient than trucks. Trains put far less pollutants in the air and also are less damaging to the earth in terms of erosion and maintenance of tracks versus highways. So, where can we go from here, and what does it cost? Using their website once again, I find that I can board the Coast Starlight train (with cars for dining, observation, sleep, and bar) for $40 to get to Portland. Round trip: $55. The trip takes six hours. Or, you could board the train and travel to Vancouver, British Columbia for $77 round trip. Maybe you would like to go to Los Angeles to catch a plane to Costa Rica on a dental vacation. $91 to L.A. The money saved between the airfare and the reduced dental costs would pretty much cover a vacation in Costa Rica or Mexico. How about Chicago? Three hundred fifty-four dollars. The trip takes 64 hours and 42 minutes, though. So you will probably want to upgrade to a sleeping room. Of course, these prices vary depending on what days you are traveling, vacation trip specials offered at different times of the year and how fancy your accommodations are. But, you get the idea. Trains are one of the most comfortable and energy efficient means of transportation. They often run through beautiful country-side and come with luxurious dining facilities. Much better than a car trip featuring beef-jerky and candy bar runs into a gasmart, or a crappy bag of peanuts and a drink on a plane, railroad dining is luxurious by comparison. You will be seated at a table set with China dinnerware and linen tablecloths and napkins. There are Club cars for drinks, game rooms to entertain the kids, observation decks, and sleeping cars with private bathrooms. And you don’t have to drive. It’s worth it to check out the options for train travel with a travel agent or on line. You may be able to convert a tedious car or plane trip into a really pleasurable adventure. On top of that, you’ll be doing the Earth a favor as well. www.Amtrak.com. Y7
La Pine Lions Busy with Community Projects By T. Myers, Eagle Team, Reporter and Staff Writer Everywhere you look there is Gold and Blue. They are the colors of the International Lions, the State of Oregon and some of your best neighbors! Local Lions added another feather to their cap on Valentine’s Day when they went to deliver free American flags to first graders. “We gave out 90 American Flag sets at La Pine Elementary and Rosland Grade Schools,” Ron Gerhart told the Eagle. “Thanks to Tiffany Zeiler from South Valley Bank (Tiffany has helped us every year) for joining and helping us again this year at La Pine Elementary and Rosland with Lion members Geraldine, Bob, Jerry, Shirley, Don, Lanell, Dave and myself.” The Lions are now collecting used computer Ron Gerhart. Lion President with flag for first grader printer cartridges along with old glasses and hearing aids. This year the local Lions have sponsored 42 pairs of glasses and eye exams to people in need from our area. They have helped with several hearing aids, too. Now they are partnering with LPHS Hawk’s NJROTC students to collect cell phones. You always see Lions cooking pancakes or sausage sliders to raise money for the eyeglass and hearing aid program. Last fall they sponsored the big blue van that came and tested sight and hearing for La Pine students. The annual Golf Tournament is set for May at Quail Run Golf Course on the 20th at 1 PM in the afternoon. Locals are signing up for teams of four through Jim Smith at 541-536-6399. Currently you will find your La Pine Lions doing service work at the Community Kitchen, taking care of the Finley Butte Park Building, working as mentors at the local schools, helping as members of other community organizations, writing for the Eagle and involved in helping La Pine in hundreds of ways. Lions are collecting food for the Community Kitchen and you can get your donations to Lions by dropping off items at the Chamber of Commerce or Newberry Hospice. Y7

Recently, Randall Marchington, an expert Mechanical Estimator from Bend Heating answered questions about Carrier’s newest Greenspeed heat pump technology and what it means to homeowners in terms of savings.
Q: Randall, what is Greenspeed Technology? A: Greenspeed is a new heat pump technology from Carrier Corporation that vastly improves the efficiency of Carrier’s Infinity line of residential heating and cooling equipment. It use to be great to get a 9 or 10 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rating and with Greenspeed, customers can expect to get up to a 13 HSPF rating which greatly exceeds the standards for receiving the various energy rebates and tax credits. Q: What are the incentives such as rebates and tax credits that are available when you upgrade to Greenspeed? A: The incentives are better than ever. For example if you were to install a qualifying Infinity heat pump you would be eligible to receive a rebate of up to $1900 from your electric utility provider, plus federal and state energy tax credits of up to $1040.00. In addition Carrier is offering up to $1250 in cash rebates on qualifying equipment. Q: How much money can I save on heating bills by installing an Infinity Greenspeed Heat Pump system?
A: Since Greenspeed is the industry’s most efficient heat pump system, the savings can be as much as 75% of what you are currently paying. So you can see that it would reduce your heating bill dramatically with electricity savings, not to mention a great hedge against energy cost increases. Q: What sets Bend Heating apart from other Central Oregon heating companies? A: Bend Heating is the only “Factory Authorized Carrier Dealer” in all of Central Oregon. That means we can provide a 100% Money Back Guarantee backed by the factory. Add to that, Bend Heating has helped build Central Oregon communities since 1953, longer than any other HVAC company. We are required to be certified by federal, state and local agencies. We participate in rigorous ongoing training that requires us to perform many different tests to certify
the installation is correct and the paperwork is in order for the rebates and tax credits to go through. Q: How can people contact you for more information? A: You can contact me at 541-948-7193 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’m happy to provide a no obligation estimate of costs and savings.

THE NEWBERRY EAGLE • MARCH 1, 2012
By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer I love St. Patrick’s Day. It is green and fun and everyone gets to be Irish for a day! I have had some outstanding personal experiences, none of which compares to the time I was in the Calistoga Hotel drinking Irish coffees and listening to a singer- named Debbie, who had hips as wide as Missouri (Coming from me- those were some wide hips!) sing us the songs of her age. Turns out she was a child star who never learned to NOT cover a figure like her own with hounds tooth black and white checks. But, I must say that Debbie got into the music and the band was great and I remember enjoying the laughter and the celebrating and those wide swinging black and white checked hips! It was a St Patrick’s Day to remember. The first time I ever sipped on an Irish Coffee, it was at the Buena Vista Bar in San Francisco. The stoic bartender had been a fixture in the place for some 38 years. A German, he could really do a fine job as an exacting drink maker and we watched as he lined up preheated Irish Coffee glasses across the bar, dropping two sugar cubes into the bottom of the glass, adding a healthy shot of good Irish Whiskey and filling it with hotter than hot coffee. “The trick,” he explained, “Is to use hot coffee, but then, you must top them with slightly sweetened real whip cream that has been beaten to the soft peak stage.” I added this in indelible ink to my collection of most treasured recipes and I use it to this day when I want to experience the wonderful flavor of a finely tuned drink! There are other terrific March/Irish recipes that I have discovered, too. When it comes to food- that is a revelation, the recipes for bread pudding hit the mark! I have been making the office try out different versions of the comforting stuff. Here are a couple of our favorites: Standard Bread Pudding: Start with 6 -8 cups of cubed stale bread- white if possible and with the crusts removed if you are trying to be fancy! Put them in the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan that has been buttered on the sides and the bottom. In a large bowl, mix up 8-10 eggs until well beaten. Add 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of fresh ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt and 8 cups of whole milk and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Soak the bread with the milk mixture and let it sit in the fridge for several hours or overnight- covered. Bake at 350 for 1 hr. Check with a clean knife by inserting it in the middle until it comes out clean. The top should be browned. (You can sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar for extra punch. This is a custardy version and if you put a small pan of water in the oven when you bake it, it will be even better!) #2 Bread Pudding: Line a buttered baking dish with slices of white bread (No crusts) and set aside. Mix 5 eggs and 4 cups of whole milk together with ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ cup sugar. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and pour mixture over the bread slices. Bake at 350 until the bread is browned and puffy. Set aside. Peel and slice fresh apples and sauté the apples in butter until cooked through and the juices are reduced. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the apples and stir to mix well. Serve the apples over a slice of custardy bread for dessert with whip cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Bon Appetit! Y7

SUNRIVER BOOKS AND MUSIC By Deon Stonehouse
Saturday March 24th at 5:00 PM Dana Haynes will give a presentation on Breaking Point. If you like action, enjoy an adrenalin rush, Dana Haynes is your guy.. High octane could be a good description for Haynes’ writing style. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) calls the teams it sends to investigate when a plane goes down “Crashers”. These are people smart enough and strong enough to sort through the grizzly wreckage to find the truth, to figure out what took that long silver body out of the sky. Pathologist Tommy Tomzak, sound expert Kiki Duvall, and pilot Isaiah Grey are Crashers. They will board flight 78 headed for Seattle Washington where they are scheduled to speak at a conference. They will never arrive. Somewhere outside Helena Montana the plane will be brought down in a remote forest. “Crashers” will be sent to find out why. Haynes puts you right in the cockpit as the pilots battle to keep the plane airborne, a struggle they will lose. He takes you inside the investigation as the crash team keeps finding things that don’t add up. A shadowy mercenary is in the employ of powerful interests in the weapons game, they are more than ready to be brutal in achieving their aims. A computer genius realizes his inventions will be used for nothing but evil and tries to stop the bad guys by spilling their secrets to the press. A beautiful woman must choose between her high-end lifestyle in the country she has adopted and the man she loves. And a clever FBI agent will have to put it all together with the help of a former Israeli spy. Saturday March 31st at 5:00 PM we have authors sure to please our young crowd and adults alike. Phillip Margolin is well known for his thrilling adult mysteries; Executive Privilege, Supreme Justice, Lost Lake and many others. He has teamed up with his daughter, Ami Margolin Rome to write Vanishing Acts. Move over Nancy Drew, there is a new sleuth in town. Madison lives in Portland Oregon with her lawyer father; she is determined to follow in his footsteps. As the first day of 7th grade arrives Madison is looking forward to being reunited with her friend Ann. Over the summer Ann traveled to Europe with her father so the two best friends have been out of touch for a while and will have a lot of catching up to do. Ann doesn’t show up at school, she misses the tryouts for the soccer team. She doesn’t answer e-mail, she doesn’t answer the phone, and no one answers the door at her home. Madison is sure something awful has happened to Ann. She tries to share her concern with her father but he is buried in his cases, her school friends all think she is exaggerating, and no one seems interested in finding Ann. The only person to take her worries seriously is Jake. As the days go on and Ann still doesn’t show up, Madison and Jake decide to investigate together and find out what happened. If that isn’t enough of a challenge, Madison’s third grade teacher disappears. There is a lot of blood and a convenient suspect; the woman had a heated fight with her husband right before she went missing. Madison’s Dad takes the case of defending the man accused of murdering Madison’s teacher. She liked her third grade teacher. Jake and Madison decide to investigate her disappearance too. The intrepid pair go all over Portland conducting their various inquiries. Author events are free and fun. Refreshments will be served and we will have drawings for prizes. Please call 541-593-2525 or email email@example.com or stop by Sunriver Books & Music to sign up to attend. Y7

NEWBERRY COUNTRY ATTRACTIONS When In Doubt… Follow The Dog Finally we have some snow, and if you listen carefully, you can hear the snowmobilers, skiers and snowshoers cheering! Ok, so the truckers on Highway 97 aren’t cheering, but those of us who are snow-lovers, are laughing all the way to the drifts. A couple of weeks ago, and with fresh snow calling us, my wife and I (and dog, Cookie) decided to go snow-shoeing at our favorite trail system at the Edison SnoPark After “filling our tanks” with our favorite breakfast at Norma and Darrell McAllister’s Red Rooster Café (#11 on the menu), we headed up the road to the Edison SnoPark. Snowshoeing for us offers peace, quiet solitude, and the magic of being isolated and “lost” in the deep forest.. In another article a couple of months ago, we explored the summertime activities available to ATV’ers at Edison. Mountain bikers and hikers also enjoy this recreation site in the summer months Ah, but this month it’s the snow, baby! Edison SnoPark, as with all the other SnoParks in the area, is very well maintained, with a huge parking lot, a clean restroom, excellent maps, and separate, well marked trails for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Except at a very few intersections, the three separate trails systems do not cross each other, which keeps all of the disparate users happy. This particular day, my wife and I decided to try the Tesla Trail. This trail connects to the Alternating Current and to the Direct Current trails, and eventually up the ACDC Warming Hut. I’m guessing that this trail was named after Nikola Tesla, a SerbianAmerican engineer, whose experiments with electricity contributed to the radio and to wireless communication.

The trail starts out innocently enough and then, just to make sure you get a great workout, it heads up…and up…and up. “Yahoo…I see the hut”! I guess there’s no reason to put the warming huts at the bottom of the mountain, as they are usually up high with great panoramic views. Then, of course, it’s mostly down hill to the parking lot. I say “mostly downhill” because even snowshoeing down hill is a big workout! It has been documented that sled dogs can smell the trail that is buried under 15 feet of snow. Our dog, Cookie, always

THE NEWBERRY EAGLE • MARCH 1, 2012
The New Senior
By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer
I have some thoughts about several things to discuss this month. Phones, friends and family, the changing economy, the political climate, support for your favorite organizations and charities, the Park District capital fundraiser for the second phase of the La Pine Event Center (LPEC) remodel, and what is happening at the senior center. Every one of us needs to know that we can be part of the problem at times and better than that, a part of the solution. Shall we begin? Phones: I am sick to death of the fact that everyone has to be connected to a cell phone, or Facebook or Twitter or constantly texting- even when the friend they are texting will be home after work at the same time as they are- in the same house! Who in the world is that dag nabbed important that they must have an immediate response to their every question or every thought? Even Doctors who are on call (they have what I consider a reasonable excuse for having a cell phone on all the time) don’t use their cell phones 24-7. And that expression 24-7? 24 hours a day and seven days a week. No one should have to understand what that implies. I notice that when my kids come to visit, they check their phones all the time and one daughter is texting all through the entire visit. I live in a house with a metal roof and now some of that will have to come to a stop, too bad! Turn off the phones and let people know that you need a break from all of the communications. It will feel real good after the withdrawal! Friends and Family: Are you thanking all of the people who matter to you for what they do for you and how they make your life better? I am so lucky to have friends that care about me and a family who loves and helps me. I could not survive without these people and they need to know how much I appreciate them and am grateful to them. The changing economy: I have written a piece for the Senior Newsletter that talks about the fact that we will never again live in a society that is running rampant with economic excesses. All of us need to learn to tighten our belts, cut out the extras and learn to spend time with our neighbors sharing our lives and help with each other. The Political climate: This Presidential election year is already pretty yukky! The president is playing it cool right now- because he can, and the candidates in the opposing party are in a demolition derby with each other. Every other day, one of them makes a statement that changes the course of the election. What I want to know is probably related to this excruciating need to be in the know 24-7. If a man or woman is running for office and has a solid platform of things to run on, why can the media, or a single statement on a single day affect the candidate so seriously. It is like no one is taking any time to think about what is being laid out before us. Snap decisions, changing polls and a sick feeling that the right person is not ‘out there yet’ is uppermost in my mind. Is it in yours? LPEC: we have just seen the reveal of the first phase of the renovations at the Park District old White School building now called the La Pine Event Center or LPEC. This community has an opportunity to score a huge amount of matching grant dollars to go towards Phase II of the
LPEC building Fund and there is a fundraising campaign going on right now. It means that we need to raise donations of $265k in order to get that much more money to spend on the planned improvements for the next part of the event center. When we donate, there is no increase in taxes. When we donate, it means that someone else, who does not even live here, believes enough in La Pine to give us a huge amount of matching money to do this important work in the community. Give if you can. Call Justin Cutler at the office of LPRD, 541-536-2223, and see how you can help the town do this important fundraiser. Supporting your favorite organizations and charities and our senior center: Everyone needs so much these days. I am worried for the local Senior Center. They get no tax based support. The community has a higher percentage of seniors here than in any other areas of the state and they are constantly struggling to offer us a beautiful building, activities designed for older people and social things that are fun and easy on the pocketbook, and money is a problem. We need to be a part of this wonderful center and make use of the amenities it offers. Call them 541-536-6237 and see what you can do to help them! How can you be a part of the solution to the problems we have in La Pine? It takes a commitment. It takes time. Sometimes money helps, but so does volunteering to make a difference. See you next month! Y7
Friends of the Library Celebrate a Year of Giving By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer On Valentine’s Day every Year, the local Friends of the Library get together to share a thank you lunch for the volunteers who help run the Book Nook, decorate for the different holidays and do a variety of other helpful things for the librarians. During the year FOL members work hard to raise money to supplement the collections and programs, hang the art for local artists displaying their works of art, purchase racks and display cabinets for the library and they also give money to the community. During a really busy year last year, the FOL raised thousands of dollars and decided to donate $5,000.00 to the Ford Family Foundation Co-Hort II for the playground project adjacent to the Library. It was enough to get the playground equipment that has already been installed for use. It costs five dollars to be a member of the FOL for a year. People in the community can join without being active just to show support, and for those among us who love our library, there are wonderful ways to help make our library even better. Don’t forget to come into the Book Nook and buy books for the price of a dollar for hardcovers and 50 cents for pocketbooks. There is always a great selection, with new books coming in every week. The Book Nook also features several big basket drawings each year where patrons get a free entry every time they make a purchase. Hours are Tuesday from 10-1 PM and Sunday from 1 to 4 PM. Watch for the annual Frontier Days Sidewalk Sale, too. For more information you can ask a librarian for a membership form. Y7

THE NEWBERRY EAGLE • FEB. 1, 2012
Written by Robert Oms Cell phones (telefone celular) or mobile phones have had a great impact on the way we lead our lives. In today’s world, where change is the only constant, cell phones have been upgraded with lots of new technological features. There has been a tremendous growth in the use of cell phones all over the world and now almost anybody has a personal cell phone. What started in 1960s as a bulky radio communication equipment to be used at the time of war, it has now become a small pocket device with a host of special features specially crafted for the common consumer. It satisfies more than the basic need to communicate. It is a fashion statement – an identity of self – and it comes in hundreds of models. Nokia is the world’s largest manufacturer of cell phones followed by Motorola, Samsung, BenQ, Siemens, Panasonic, Philips, LG, NEC, Sony Ericsson, Fujitsu and many more. Apart from calling and texting, cell phones are used for a variety of purposes – to keep contact information, to make task lists and daily schedules, browse mobile websites and check emails, play games, watch video clips, listen to music, take pictures and much more. Also cell phones (telefone celular) are easy to integrate with other electronic devices such as notebooks, music systems and etc. With the availability of infrared and Bluetooth technology, a lot of wireless connectivity is possible, such as the use of wireless headphones. Also you can make your phone interact with your notebook without any physical connection. So, what should you look for while purchasing a new cell phone (telefone celular)? The points to consider include the service plan, price, size, weight, features and technical specifications, compatibility with other devices, display screen resolution and a very important feature: battery life. The latest features offered by cell phones are mega pixel camera, wireless connectivity, modem capability, PC synchronization, music and video player and a lot more. Today, you can access the World Wide Web through your cell phone (telefone celular). To access internet, your cell phone has to be WAP-enabled. Many companies have created mobile compatible websites that make browsing on your phone very easy. You can get the latest news, stock quotes and game scores on the move through your cell phone. The advanced third-generation phones (3G phones) will soon storm the market and will have high-end graphical display that will enable better video conferencing and gaming experience. Everybody must follow basic cell phone (telefone celular) etiquettes. Your mobile should not ring in public and disturb others. Sometimes mobile phones ring at odd instances like in movie theatres, weddings, funerals, important official meetings, etc., and to top it the fancy ring tones disturb everybody else around you. You should keep your cell phone in the silent mode when you are at a public place and you must never talk on the cell phone while driving. This might put you in trouble in many countries as there are heavy fines on cell phone misuse. Cell phones (telefone celular) have become an intrinsic part of our lives that most of us cannot imagine a single day without it. Ring tones, caller tunes, mobile gaming, camera, texting, MMS and video messaging, audio and video recording and viewing are still not enough. New technologies are developed often to reduce size and weight, increase speed, provide a better user interface, to pack more high-definition features into a small pocket device. With GPS (global positioning system) capability, cell phones have become so useful that a person carrying one could be located to a range of a few meters, anywhere on the globe! GPS cell phones are important devices in locating users in emergency situations, which allows emergency services to be quickly dispatched. Article courtesy of www.articlecircle.com. Y7

Contributed by Veronica Schneider, Little d Technology Facebook is a social networking site used by more than 500 million people in every country on the planet, so far in 70 languages. The site’s minimum age is 13, but teens represent only a minority population on Facebook. It’s used by a lot of adults, certainly including parents. So how do you keep your kids and yourself safe when using Facebook? According to Anne Collier and Larry Magid the Co-Directors of ConnectSafely.org, who wrote a 34 page guide on Facebook safety, the top safety tips are: • One way to monitor your child’s Facebook activities, is to “friend” them and get them to friend you – then you can establish a family rule that says something like, “No one can block other family members from content any of us posts in Facebook.” • Use your real age when setting up only. Facebook provides additional protection for users under the age of 13. • Choose your friends wisely. If you choose not to accept someone as a friend they will not know. • Do not use your picture for your profile. Instead choose a cartoon character or image that you really like. • Never put your address, place of birth, phone number, date of birth or email address on Facebook for public viewing. • Go to www.fbparents.org and look at the Parents guide to Facebook to find out more info on Facebook safety. But the number one tip is to talk to your kids and set some rules about socializing online and even using the internet. The more you talk the more you will both be on the same page!

She is currently a sophomore at Central Oregon Community College studying for a business transfer degree, and is a co-facilitator at the Ford Leadership program.

Sell Investments for the Right Reasons It’s important to understand which investments to own, and when to buy them. But you should also know when it’s time to sell an investment — and why. Unfortunately, many people sell investments for the wrong reasons. Some people want the money to purchase so-called “hot” investments, even if these new investments aren’t appropriate for their needs. Others own investments that have lost value, and fearing further losses, they decide to sell — thereby violating the oldest rule of investing: “Buy low and sell high.” These types of behavior can lead to at least two major problems. First, if you’re constantly selling investments, you’ll likely incur fees, commissions and taxes that can erode any returns you did manage to achieve. And second, by frequently selling off your investments and buying new ones, you’ll find it difficult to follow the type of consistent, long-term financial strategy that’s essential to help you work toward your goals. If you shouldn’t sell investments to find quick gains or to avoid losses that may not even occur, when should you sell? You might want to sell: If your goals have changed — You bought certain investments because you thought they would help you make progress toward your objectives. But over time, your goals may change, so in response, you may need to sell some investments and use the money to purchase new ones that are more suitable for your new goals. For example, early in your career, you might have benefited from owning investments that offered high potential for growth, but as you near retirement, you may need to shift some — but certainly not all — of your growth-oriented vehicles to income-producing ones. If the investments themselves change — You might have bought a stock because you liked the company’s products, business plan or management team. If any of these factors change significantly, though, you might need to re-evaluate your ownership of this investment. If you need to rebalance your portfolio — You may have decided that your investment portfolio should be composed of specific percentages of stocks, bonds and “cash” instruments. But due to changes in the value of your investments, these percentages can shift somewhat, resulting in a portfolio that no longer reflects your goals and risk tolerance. If that happens, you’ll need to rebalance your holdings, which may require you to sell some of your investments. If an investment has chronically underperformed — Sometimes, an investment simply doesn’t perform as well as you had hoped. When this happens, you may be better off by selling the investment and using the money to pursue new opportunities. However, don’t rush to judgment. Before you sell an underperforming investment, try to determine why it hasn’t done well. Is it because the market as a whole has slumped? If so, your investment could rebound when the market does. Or are there separate factors, unique to this investment, that have caused its problems? If the investment’s fundamentals and prospects still look good, you might want to simply give it time to

During Red Cross Month, Help People in Need
Submitted by: Michelle Thompson, Readiness Specialist American Red Cross, Oregon Region 925 High St, Klamath Falls, OR 97601 The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar given to the Red Cross is invested in helping the people through Red Cross services.
By Supporting the American Red Cross Wednesday, February 22, 2012— During March, the American Red Cross is asking everyone to help people in need by supporting the lifesaving services it provides. “Please remember those who need our help and support the Red Cross by making a donation, becoming a volunteer, taking a class, or giving blood,” said Michelle Thompson, Readiness Specialist, Klamath Falls. “We want to thank everyone for their generosity, which has enabled us help people here at home, across the United States, and around the world.” March is Red Cross Month, first proclaimed in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Since that time, every president, including President Obama, has designated March as Red Cross Month. The American Red Cross is synonymous with helping people, and has been doing so for more than 130 years. The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year in this country, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families – in war zones, military hospitals and on military installations around the world; collects and distributes more than 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply and trains more than 9 million people in first aid, water safety and other life-saving skills every year. Here in the Klamath Basin area, the Red Cross provided immediate support of food, shelter and clothing for 9 families displaced by house fires, and assisted 113 people through our Services to Armed Forces. And, people from this area donated more than 6,000 units of blood last year. “Red Cross Month is a great time for people to support our mission,” Thompson said. “Their kindness will enable us to continue our work, both here at home and across the globe.” On February 28, the Klamath County Commissioners will sign a proclamation declaring March to be Red Cross Month in Klamath County, much like the proclamation signed by the President and the Governor of Oregon, says Thompson. “We appreciate the show of support and are glad that Klamath County believes that this is important.”
The Klamath Falls Red Cross offices have a number of activities planned for Red Cross Month, including: • Multiple blood drives at the Donor Center on 6th Street and on the bloodmobile around the area • Bi-monthly CPR and First Aid classes at the Chapter offices • Training sessions for volunteers for Emergency Services and blood drives • Earthquake preparedness sessions open to the public at the Klamath County Library on March 1st at 6 p.m., and at the Senior Center on March 13 at 10 a.m. They will also be participating in the free informational health fair sponsored by Sky Lakes Hospital and held at Hosanna Christian School on March 3. “Sky Lakes is a great partner to the Red Cross, hosting blood drives that provide opportunities for their employees to give back to our mission,” says Brenda Hagge, Territory Representative for Blood Services. “We appreciate creative partnerships like this where we can reach out to the public.” For more information, a blood donation appointment or to register for classes, please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Susan Massini has been a member of Collective Visions, an art quilt group, for three years. She has lived in the Klamath Basin for 7 years, after retiring from Northern California. The group, which has included over the years, Joanne Baeth, Dona Ford, Kathy Adams, Louise Page, Cheryl Carbone, Carol Bowen and Susan, each choose a pattern using a photo, a drawing, or another artist’s work -- with their permission -- then divide it into 5 parts and distribute the parts to the other members. Each person completes a part, then returns it to the originator who puts together the pieces and quilts and finishes it. These are called fractured quilts. Susan’s first fracture pattern was of a covered bridge. The pattern was from a picture taken by Susan on a family vacation in Vermont. It was taken in early winter and

Susan gave instructions that the quilt should show the bridge in autumn. The result is a typical fractured quilt: although the pieces show a complete picture when put together, the background is each member’s interpretation of fall, thus giving the final product a “disjointed”, but pleasing effect. The second quilt finished by Susan is called Edo Spring. This quilt was inspired by Susan’s love of all things Japanese. Susan provided the pattern and background fabric for a kimono shaped quilt, with the instructions that each person create a Japanese themed scene on their section of the quilt. The left sleeve is a winter into spring scene by Cheryl Carbone; the back is a combined effort by Dona Ford and Joanne Baeth; the bottom is by Louise Page and the right sleeve is by Susan. This year’s quilt is from a painting done by Susan’s friend, Jennifer Saylor and is named, appropriately Jen’s nest. Susan fell in love with the painting and was given permission to recreate it in fabric by Jen. The techniques on this quilt range from hand dyeing silk, beading, felting, fusing and greatly inspired work to create the actual nest. Each artist also made an egg to put in the nest. The result is a beautiful recreation of the nest that is filled with small treasures. Y7

From: Karl Scronce, Candidate for State Senator, District 28 To: Sandra Jones, Editor, Newberry Eagle Dear Sandra and citizens of Southern Deschutes County and Northern Klamath County. My name is Karl Scronce. I am running for State Senator for District 28. I am a third generation Klamath County resident with ties 100 years old. I attended Lost River High School and remember well the strong force that Gilchrist High School had in basketball and track. I then graduated from Oregon State University. Up until last year, I was a life-long farmer. I understand how government works for I was a state and national president of Oregon’s wheat growers and am comfortable working at our state capital in Salem. With the recent redistricting and adjustment of State Senate and House district lines, La Pine is now in District 28. This includes all of Klamath and Crook County. It also includes parts of Deschutes, Jackson and Lake Counties. It is a large district, the second largest, but in my opinion it has a great deal in common as a whole. It is mostly rural, dependent on agriculture, timber and recreation, and includes a large percentage of public lands. I have met some of your community leaders and look forward to expanding that base. I have listened to some of your concerns and recognize issues that are unique and need special attention along with issues that are of concern district wide. The theme of my campaign is focused on “Job Creation-Education-Representation.” Thank you for your interest in my campaign.

Clifford Delmore Freilinger October 6, 1925 – February 4, 2012
Clifford Delmore Freilinger passed away on February 4, 2012 at The Hospice Care Center in Bend, Oregon. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and the birds were eating the last berries on the trees outside the window of his room that day. Cliff really enjoyed birds. Cliff was born to Charles and Myrtle Freilinger in Superior, Wisconsin on October 6, 1925. He was the fifth of six children. December 3, 1943 he was inducted into the United States Army. He was a Private in the 106th Infantry, 424 Division, Company F. In just over a year the rest of his life would change forever by the events of World War II and a Gideon New Testament. On Christmas Day 1944, he was wounded during the Battle of the Bulge, near Manhay, Belguim. Reading the Gideon New Testament on a frozen battle field, wounded and close to death he vowed “to serve God if He would get him out of this.” He survived but was forever scarred by the damage to his body. However, his Spirit climbed forward reaching back to help others as he traveled through life. For the service to his country he was awarded the Good Conduct Medal, Victory Medal, American Theater Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, Purple Heart, Asiatic Pacific Theatre Service Medal with 2 Bronze Stars. Returning home to Bend, Oregon and his parents he met and married JoAnn Murray on March 28, 1948. Cliff was an active church member until he was no longer able to attend. His story has been shared over the years touching many hearts and lives. His passion for life included hunting, fishing and camping with family and friends. Gardening and “tinkering” were his hobbies. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed watching birds and wildlife no matter where he was at. Handmade treasured wind chimes “The Music of the Winds” will be our reminder of his song of life. He was a brick mason and carpenter by trade, and he worked to support his family despite his war injuries. JoAnn and Cliff returned to Deschutes County from living in the Willamette Valley to become residents of Prairie House Assisted Living in La Pine, Oregon. Clifford is mourned by his loving wife JoAnn and his children: Stephen and Sandra Freilinger La Pine, Oregon; Nancy and Neil Case, Lincoln City, Oregon; Timothy and Lori Freilinger, Lincoln City, Oregon. He leaves 10 grandchildren, and 22 great grandchildren. A granddaughter preceded him in death. A memorial Service will be held at the High Lakes Christian Church on March 17th, 2012. His final resting place with military honors will be held at the Roseburg National Cemetary in the spring. By Nancy Case
