Veterans Recognized Re-Districting: Re-Dividing and a “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” Slate of Hopefuls for From the Oregon Department of Veterans’ the New Elections Affairs, Submitted by Dick Tobiason SALEM – Nearly 40 years ago, a generation of courageous and honorable American veterans endured jeers and ridicule for serving and fighting in an unpopular war. In 2011, the State of Oregon passed legislation in support of those veterans by designating March 30 of every year “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.” Gov. John A. Kitzhaber, M.D., signed Senate Bill 74 into law to create the official day of recognition. The day honors Vietnam veterans and is part of a national effort to acknowledge the men and women of the Vietnam War who were denied this recognition and welcome upon returning home. “(The bill) is an effort – small, but significant – to rectify that,” the governor noted. On March 30, 1973, all United States troops withdrew from Vietnam following the peace accord signed in January 1973 by the U.S. and North Vietnam in Paris, (Continued on page 9)

It is currently the policy of the State of Oregon, when the population of an area increases, to redraw the lines of representation for political offices. This has just happened here in Oregon. Right where we live! It’s the first time since 1981 that lawmakers have agreed on a Legislative redistricting plan. They are hopeful that the new districts will keep us well represented for the next decade. When we were approaching the census of 2010, there were downplayed meetings while the county clerk and other officials quietly cut South County into two districts and sent their recommendations over to Salem and the next thing we heard, it was a done deal with Sunriver banding with Bend, Redmond and Sisters, and, of course, La Pine was part of the new House District (Continued on page 4)

Emergency Preparedness Tips & Techniques


Leon Pantenburg

Let’s work with this scenario: South Deschutes County just got hit with “The Big One,” the level nine quake on the Cascadia fault off the Oregon coast. According to the local Red Cross and the Oregon Department of Transportation, this will be the probable situation in the La Pine area: All the bridges will be down, and many homes are destroyed. There will be no electricity, gas or water, and the grocery stores will have only enough food for two to three days. So as the shaking stops, the survivors emerge from the wreckage. How will people react? Psychological responses to emergencies follow a pattern, according to John Leach, author of “Survival Psychology.” Leach’s 1982 book was a groundbreaker in the preparedness field, and his research is often used by other writers. The most common reactions at the onset of an emergency, Leach writes, are disbelief and denial. People don’t prepare for emergencies, he adds, for three reasons: Planning is inconvenient, preparations may be costly and an ingrained folk myth says to prepare for a disaster is to encourage it. To deal with reality, he says, you must first treat the situation as being real and admit it is happening to you. So, mentally and emotionally, what is the best course of action to develop this survival mindset? The first thing, according to experts, is realize you’re in trouble. Here’s the typical disaster reaction progression, according to “Survival Psychology”:

Denial: The first reaction will probably be: “This can’t be happening to me!” But an emergency, natural disaster, accident or crash can happen to anyone, and it can result in a situation where your life is at risk. Panic: Once you get past denial, there is a strong chance you may panic. This is when judgment and reasoning deteriorate to the point where it can result in self-destructive behavior. It can happen to anyone. Hypoactivity, defined as a depressed reaction; or hyperactivity, an intense but undirected liveliness: The depressed person will not look after himself or herself, and will probably need to be told what to do. The hyperactive response can be more dangerous because the affected person may give a misleading impression of purposefulness and leadership.

Re-Districting and New Elections

Assessor Candidates Hernandez and Hill

Cheryl Hukill, Incumbent for Klamath County Position #3

Angelli, Bricknell, Skrah, Shepard, Broussard, Collins and Bryson compete for Klamath County Sheriff 55 that goes from Crook County and Lake County on the east, to Medford on the west, from La Pine in the north and south to Chiloquin. The new Senate District encompasses the same area, but includes Klamath Falls. It is too late to ask why the division was made that excluded our former senator who lives 15 miles from La Pine in Sunriver. But it seems that it is already in effect and the change takes place with the November election (including the May primary). The new District reps will be in Salem for the January 2013 sessions. During the Candidate’s Forum held in Crescent last week, the new district was not even a topic of conversation. On the contrary! The room filled with voters and candidates up to the rafters. Senator Doug Whitsett and Karl Scronce talked about the Senator’s race and Rep. Mike McLane and candidate, John Huddle, debated in the Representative category. The County Commissioner candidates from Klamath district #1 were represented (alphabetically) by John Gerry, Tom Mallams, Kelly Minty-Morris and incumbent Al Schweitzer. District #3 was represented by Jim Bellet, Incumbent Cheryl Hukill and Dennis Jefcoat. The County Assessor candidates, Rafael Hernandez, the acting Assessor and his rival, Leonard Hill, were followed by a slate of seven Klamath County Sheriff candidates: Mike Angelli, Brian Bicknell, Ron Broussard, Brian Bryson, Chuck Collins, Mike Shepard and Frank Skrah. Bill Scally set up the sound equipment courtesy of KITC radio, Gil Ernst acted as emcee and Barbara Sullivan, Community Action Team President, watched the time clock. Each candidate had a chance to introduce themselves and their platform, followed by a series of questions that were posed by audience members. The event started at 5:30 PM and lasted four hours. It was a chance to see how your candidate held up against the others for the office and a chance to meet the candidates personally during a coffee hour. Each candidate also had a chance to offer literature to the public. a

South Deschutes and North Klamath Groundwater Protection Steering Committee Groundwater at risk: Sources of contamination Submitted by Brian Mannion, Public Affairs Specialist, Oregon DEQ (This is the second in a series of articles designed to provide important information about disposal of waste in the Upper Deschutes Basin and the groundwater we drink.) In our first article, we - the South Deschutes and North Klamath County Groundwater Protection Steering Committee - introduced ourselves and our work. We‘re people who live and work in this community, and we firmly believe that local groundwater issues require local solutions. We want to ensure our voices are heard. In today’s article, we discuss how contaminants can enter our groundwater and can end up in the wells that provide most of our families with drinking water. What We’ve Learned– Many years ago, people used to dump various chemicals on the ground and bury waste. They did not make the connection between their water supply and the chemicals and waste being dumped. We now know that in our area, the sandy pumice soil and shallow groundwater means our groundwater is at risk. As a committee, we’ve researched potential sources of contamination in the area and how each might affect groundwater. Whether it is herbicides, fertilizers, solvents or sewage, the soil is limited in its ability to protect our shallow water supply. The Good News: Our soils do filter some substances such as disease-causing organisms and certain complex chemical compounds including dioxins, many components of diesel fuel, and some pesticide, such as DDT. The Bad News: Our soils don’t filter water-soluble substances such as easily dissolved herbicides like picloram, many petroleum products, and substances found in human sewage and many kinds of household chemicals. Our research has focused on nitrates because we know nitrates can indicate the presence of partially treated sewage, nitrate levels are very low in area groundwater that has not been affected by humans, state and federal regulations limit nitrate levels in groundwater to protect drinking water, and because they are easy to detect. In other words, we’re looking at nitrates because increasing nitrates levels are evidence that stuff is getting into our ground water. Below is a brief summary of our findings. Sources– Livestock: One 1,100 pound horse can excrete about the same amount of total nitrogen as can a family of four people. Each of 9,300 lots in South Deschutes and North Klamath Counties would need to pasture 1 or possibly 2 horses for the contribution from livestock to equal the load from onsite septic systems. Managing manure and proper burial of livestock is important to protect groundwater. Fertilizer: Since the point of fertilizer is to nourish vegetation, properly applied fertilizers will be fully consumed by the plants and don’t contribute to groundwater contamination. Over-application of fertilizer can contribute contaminants to nearby groundwater. Spray fields: Spray fields are used by centralized sewage treatment facilities to dispose of nitrates and other contaminants by applying them to a crop. Like fertilizer, properly applying wastewater ensures that the plants use all the nitrates to grow. Most spray fields include monitoring wells to ensure that overspray and leaks do not threaten the groundwater. Mismanaged spray fields can contribute contaminate to nearby groundwater. Onsite Septic Systems: Standard onsite septic systems, whether a leach line or a bottomless sand filter, are designed to discharge partially treated septic effluent into the ground. Contaminants that may enter ground from septic systems include bacteria, viruses, pharmaceuticals, detergents, household cleaners in addition to nitrates. As we’ve said earlier in this article some of these substances are filtered while others could end up in our groundwater. Because of the large number of onsite septic systems in the area they are the largest contributor of contaminants that threaten our groundwater. Due to the nature of our soil and groundwater it is essential we are careful about how we dispose of waste in our area. We must be good stewards of the land and water beneath. a

Pictured: Rep. Greg Walden (OR-2) discusses MBL legislation with the Oregon delegation inside the House Energy and Commerce Hearing room. The delegation was scheduled to meet in Walden’s office, but the office proved too small to accommodate such a large group. (Mid Oregon CU group to the right facing the camera.) On Wednesday, March 21, 2012 the Northwest Governmental Affairs Conference delegation paid visits to Washington and Oregon elected officials to discuss Senate bill, S.509 (the Small Business Lending Enhancement Act of 2011) and House bill H.R. 1418 (known as the Small Business Lending Enhancement Act), which seeks to raise the credit union member business lending (MBL) cap from its current 12.25 percent to 27.5 percent of a credit union’s total assets. Locally, the increase would allow an additional $21M in small business lending for Mid Oregon Credit Union. In the state of Oregon, the conservative estimate is that passing H.R. 1418 and S. 509 would make $254M available from credit unions, potentially creating over 2,700 jobs. On the national level it would free up $13 billion dollars and potentially create 140,000 jobs at no cost to taxpayers.

Veterans Recognized “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day”

France. The Treaty of Paris signaled the end of America’s long involvement in Vietnam. Today, there are nearly 120,000 Vietnam veterans living in Oregon. “Warriors don’t go to war for memorials, to earn medals or have parades when they return home,” said Jim Willis, a Vietnam veteran and director of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs. “You go to war for the man on your left, the man on your right, the one behind you.” Creating a day to welcome home Vietnam veterans was first proposed in the California State Assembly. After its passage, the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs was asked to consider passing similar legislation in their states. Oregon was one of the first states to draft and pass its own bill. The plan to welcome home Vietnam veterans has been so well received the U.S. Senate passed a resolution mirroring those passed by the states. a

Green Energy – Greenspeed Technology from Carrier


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 and I’m happy to provide a no obligation estimate of costs and savings.

Obsidian Hair Spa wins Award as Outstanding Business at Sunriver Chamber’s Annual Meeting By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer

The Sunriver Chamber of Commerce held its annual meeting at the Hearthside Room at Sunriver Lodge on Thursday March 22. After a welcome by Executive Director, Dennis Smeage, Robert Bennington, President, opened the official meeting. Jay Audia, Secretary, presented the minutes, and Christopher Bridges of Bank of the Cascades filled in for Treasurer, Greg Tibbots, and presented the financial review. Robert Bennington thanked outgoing board members, local Realtor, Ginny Kansas-Meszaros and Sunriver Resort’s Craig Peterson for their years of service. Bennington announced the list of all of the events and special educational opportunities that were sponsored by the Chamber. During the past few months they have done a survey to determine that Chamber members want help with marketing, held nine after hour events, two financial planning seminars, two area recreation samplers/ tourism meetings and the SHARC tour evening in conjunction with the SROA. He also said they were going to press on the second Sunriver Magazine. Robert Bennington and Dennis Smeage also thanked the fifteen volunteers that work at the visitor’s center and ongoing thanks to Commissioners Tony DeBone, Tammy Baney and Allan Unger for their support. The guest speaker was Terry Zink, the CEO for Bank of the Cascades. He addressed the group with his ideas about how a bank should serve its customers. Bank of the Cascades is a small bank that is well capitalized, with great reserves, and Mr. Zink dazzled the members by saying that he was open for business and wants to be “partners with the people in the area to make it work.” After explaining that for the past four years, bankers have been vilified and that there are still “…wonderful banks out there who have never been associated with any of the pitfalls the industry has had to deal with,” Zink explained that there was a real problem with the rating agencies who gave triple A’s to different businesses that did not deserve them. “Now, Bank of the Cascades is ‘well positioned to make a difference and be the type of bank that is a real part of the community’.” Zink completed his talk by saying that the new regulations have left out the element of common sense and made things more difficult for banks. When it was time to announce the Business of the Year, Dawn Christensen, Pennie Olson and Ken Fenicle from Obsidian Hair Spa, were completely surprised! Honored for their work in the community with the Care and Share program, they pledged continual support for the future. After a brief reveal about installing billboards that say Visit Sunriver in the valley, Bennington addressed the fact that the two chambers have had conversations and a formal meeting to consider the idea of working with the La Pine Chamber to create a new and more inclusive Chamber in our area that would serve a larger area. It is in the works! The meeting was attended by Mayor, Ken Mulenex, LP City Manager, Steven Hasson, Local Activist, Vic Russell, Newberry Eagle Editor, Sandra Jones, Chamber Office Manager, Jane Gould and Teri Myers from La Pine. a

Dawn Christensen, Pennie Olson and Ken Fenicle from Obsidian Hair Spa receive Business of the Year Award from the Sunriver Chamber. Congratulations! (See Obsidian’s coupon back cover.)

Six weeks ago on a dark and rainy night, Doug Crase was on Highway 97. A truck hit and killed him at about seven PM. We never really heard the end of the story- or why it happened until now. Enter Doug’s lifelong friend Ted McCracken, (Ted and Doug went all the way through school together and stayed friends) and his wife Carolyn Graham to set the story straight and step up to help out with Doug’s little doggies, Max and Muffy, two Chihuahuas in need of some kind attention and some crucial medical care. The problem with Dong and his resulting death was easy to explain when you understand his background. Doug Crase was hearing impaired, and at age 46, diabetes had caused blindness in one of his eyes. So here is a man who cannot hear and his depth perception is nonexistent. He tries to cross the highway and is unable to perceive the danger of a truck coming right at him. He cannot hear it and he cannot tell how close it is. The tragic results speak to the serious problems of being challenged by the disability of not hearing and it was compounded by his inability to have clear vision and see the vehicle approaching. The next part of the story is about the two little doggies he left behind. The Sheriff went to the house after the accident and the little girl dog, Muffy, was terrified and ran away. The little boy, Max was taken into custody and turned into the Humane Society. Knowing what had happened, Carolyn and Ted went to Doug’s house the following day and found little Muffy sitting on the porch in the cold shaking like a leaf. They scooped up Missy and made plans to pick up little Max and get the two dogs settled into their new home. After they were in their new environment, they noticed that the little dogs had some difficulty eating. Ted and Carolyn took their new pets to the Vet and found out that each dog had serious issues with their teeth and the girl had a growth on her shoulder. They found out how much it would cost just for the teeth (close to $800.00) and knew that they would have to have help. After getting the word out to their friends, a woman who is a great animal lover in the area came up with an easy solution she called Dr. Gordon Pickering at La Pine Animal Hospital and arranged to have him set up an account for the two little waggers! Now it is up to us. Call the LP Veterinary Hospital and donate to help these two sweet animals. There is an account for Max and one for Muffy. Drs. Pickering will even do some fund matching in order to help, too. All you have to do is call or come in with a check or cash or a credit card and make a contribution to the Max and Muffy fund at the clinic. The clinic is on Huntington across from the Bi-Mart and their number is 541-536-2001. Please do what you can to help. I met these two sweet animals and they are very happy with their new mom and dad. We also appreciate the fact that Ted and Carolyn and their friend Lynetta Casey, our translator for the interview, met with the Eagle to tell us their story. Remember, the doggies need a hand and so does Ted and Carolyn. Give the clinic a call! a

Pet Tip What is Parvo?

Pet Tip submitted by La Pine Pet Bed & Bath, see their ad below.

Parvovirus is a highly contagious intestinal disease that is transmitted through feces and the ground; the virus can remain in an area for long periods of time, infecting other dogs easily. Parvo is prevalent in the spring and also in the fall because damp soil transmits the disease easier than dry soil. Symptoms of parvo include vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, fever, and listlessness. Parvo can be fatal due to severe dehydration or a weak immune system. Seek veterinary care immediately if you think your dog has parvo. Most boarding and daycare facilities require vaccination to prevent the spread of the disease. Vaccination is the best way to prevent an infection! a

It’s Just a Rock, Right?

Article and Photography by Ollie Scheideman

As my wife and I rode our tandem bicycle past the entrance road to Smith Rock State Park, we thought; “Hmmmm, what could be so interesting about a rock”! “It’s just a rock, right”? The year was 2005 and we were participating in the North-West Tandem Rally, which in that year, was centered in Bend, and featured three days of riding from that central hub. We continued to ride our bicycle past the “rock” and didn’t give it a second thought. Since that time, and especially since owning our home in La Pine, my wife and I have been back to Smith Rock many times to explore and enjoy this wonderful area. When entering this marvelous area, one feels as if he or she is entering a

in. The Crooked River meanders through the formation adding another wonderful element to the scene. Originally it was thought that the Smith Rock formations were the eroded remains of a small volcano, known as a “tuff cone”. Recent evidence suggests, however, that Smith Rock is the westernmost part of a “supervolcano” known as the “Crooked River Caldera”, the largest volcano in Oregon. Supervolcanoes are so large and powerful that they have the ability to alter global climate for years, devastating the landscape for hundreds of miles. Our own Newberry Caldera sent a lava flow so far north that it altered the flow of the Crooked River, which, through the years, caused the erosion that resulted in the exposure of the Smith Rocks. Today, the Smith Rocks are an Oregon State Park which attracts rock climbers from all over the world. As the rocks eroded, the harder “tuff” was left behind and is stable enough and great for climbing. When you hike around the trails, you will see climbers on the famous “Monkey Face”, a shear spire that rises 600 feet into the air. Other year round attractions include hiking, mt. biking and bird and nature watching. My wife and I (and dog, Cookie) stick to the trails that follow the river and zigzag up and over the main part of the formation for a strenuous, but very scenic three to four mile hike. That rock climbing stuff is not for this cowboy! Wildlife abounds in the park. On one of our ventures to the park, we saw a badger. He was doing what badgers do best (no, not badgering anyone)…he was digging and looking for food. Probably that sighting will be the only one we will see in our lifetimes. A pair of Golden Eagles has been nesting on one of the spires for the past 23 years. Their large nests, sometimes up to 2000 pounds, are built by the female and can be used for many years. So, as we discovered, Smith Rocks is not “just a rock”! Oh, yes, and a river runs through it. a

Odes to spring, not withstanding, it is a terrific time of year to be living here in the High Desert, edge of the foothills, heart of Newberry Country, Central Oregon splendor that is our home! It has been a while since I wrote about fixing up the table for company, choosing the perfect wine, candles or flowers and presenting a celebration to friends and family and I think it is time to do just that! Spring is a time of rebirth, so your best white table linens, china and silver set with water and wine glasses, dessert plates and forks, salt and peppers and separate butter dishes at both ends of the table with a short arrangement of beautiful white blossoms and small white votive candles across the table would be a perfect way to start an Easter Dinner with guests. The menu can be traditional (Holiday ham or a great lamb roast, yams, salads, rhubarb pie for dessert) or try some-

thing new that is bound to bring some oohs and ahs from everyone at the table! I am going for the new menu this year. And this is one that can be prepared in advance so I can have a visit with my guests. I am going to try a main course recipe for Chicken L’ Orange, with a super little green salad with fresh pears and good blue cheese sprinkles, toasted walnuts and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar followed by a Potato Galette (maybe Au gratin), and a side of broccolini (half broccoli and half kale) that has been sautéed with garlic and butter and sprinkled with lemon zest and drizzled with fresh lemon juice for zip. Dessert will be a glass of fresh strawberries sliced and macerated with a tiny bit of sugar and a shot of triple sec, then topped with one of my new favorite things: White chocolate pudding mix made according to instructions and mixed with an equal amount of fresh whipped cream. The topping is light and fluffy and makes the orange-y strawberries want to pop right into your mouth all by themselves. A Potato Galette is a dish made by slicing potatoes into thin rounds and cooking them in a fry pan until browned and nearly cooked through. Then you salt and pepper to taste and out them in a 375

oven for fifteen to twenty minutes until the top is crisp and brown. Turn them out on a plate and cut in wedges to serve. Grate fresh parmesan over the top and it makes the dish even better. Chicken L’Orange: Not the fancy

French version, just down home chicken with a tasty mix of orange slices, juice, garlic, salt, pepper that is cooked with the chicken breasts and thighs. Bake in the oven on low (300) for 45 minutes to an hour, basting with the juices every tenfifteen minutes until the meat is browned and the smell in the kitchen makes you want to jump up and down with excitement. Pour the drippings into a sauce pan and reduce them to ½. Pour over the warm chicken right before it goes to the table and garnish with thinly sliced oranges around the plate. (This is great served with rice and spinach, too.) Put olive oil in a fry pan and heat. Mince two cloves of garlic and add that to the pan. Toss in the washed and dried broccolini and cook until it is tender

crisp. Remove and plate the veggie. Add the zest of a lemon as a sprinkle and then pour the juice of that lemon over the top. Salt and ground black pepper to taste makes it terrific. This is delicious and full of great flavor. And easy! If you were to add loaves of chewy bread torn into big chunks- the food will make your friends sing for more. I love a good glass of sparkling wine, but a Pinot Grigio would be perfect with a meal like this. Fresh coffee and a piece of good chocolate to finish the meal, and folks, this will be remembered for a long time. Bon Appetit! a

Written by Anson Alexander Infographics, January 24, 2012, Graphic by Anson Alexaner 2012 has arrived and the statistics show that smartphone usage and data consumption is only on the rise. Although I’ve posted an infographic on text messaging statistics, I’ve never posted one containing statistics on smartphone usage in general. Fortunately, recently published an infographic containing worldwide smartphone usage statistics such as, which smartphone has the largest market share, how many total smartphone users there are in the World and which smartphone users consume the most data. Although the infographic is posted below, here are the some of the highlights: 80% of humans own a mobile phone. There are 91.4 million smartphone in the United States alone. Out of the 5 billion mobile phones in the world, 1.08 billion are smartphones. Android has the highest market share with 46.9% – the iPhone has 28.7%. 9 out of 10 smartphone users use their phone on a daily basis. The most popular smartphone activity is texting, followed by internet browsing and playing games. A higher percentage of Android users are below the age of 34 in comparison to iPhone users. People between the ages of 25 and 34 are more likely to own a smartphone (62%) than any other age group. Android users consume the more data on a monthly basis (582MB) compared to users of other mobile operating systems. iPhone users download more apps on a monthly basis (48) when compared to users of other mobile operating systems. The top 10 countries in terms of smartphone penetration are: Singapore – 54% USA – 35% Canada – 39% Australia – 33% Hong Kong – 35% Norwary – 33% Sweden – 35% New Zealand – 32% Spain – 35% Denmark – 31% a

The newest and hottest practice in business marketing is the QR code, or Quick Response code. You may have seen these codes in the Newberry Eagle recently. Our newest promotional product, “Everything La Pine”, is most accessible by a QR code which is easily scanned by a Smart Phone. Combined with Newberry Eagle advertising, it is fast becoming one of the most effective way to increase the visibility of area businesses. Recently, I have heard people say, I don’t have a Smart Phone and I don’t think I need one. The message I would like to relay is… “You do not need to own a Smart Phone, but you certainly want the owners of Smart Phones to be able to connect with you and your business.” At the Newberry Eagle, we are happy to assist you in obtaining a QR code for quick access to your business information. We can even design and print your new QR code on your business cards and brochures. Another idea is to put a QR code on a t-shirt advertising your business. In the past two weeks we have made several updates to “Everything La Pine”. Not only can you access all the businesses and attractions in the La Pine area, events are updated daily, news streams are available for La Pine, Oregon an World events. Road Cams and a Photo Gallery have been improved. Statewide sports reports are available. You can listen to KITC FM anytime, too. With your Smart Phone, just download a scanner application from your App Market, scan the CR code on the front of the Newberry Eagle and you are on your way to “Everything La Pine.” But. remember, it is really about your potential customers. They can’t live without their Smart Phones, and they want to have easy access to your business information. - Dan Varcoe - 541-241-7741 See ad below. a

Give Your Portfolio a “Spring Cleaning” Springtime is almost here. If you’re like many people, the arrival of spring means it’s time to spruce up your home. But why stop there? This year, consider applying some of those same spring-cleaning techniques to your investment portfolio. Here are some ideas you may want to put to work: • Get rid of clutter. You probably don’t have to look too far around your home to find things that are broken or simply no longer useful to you. If you poke around your portfolio, you might make similar discoveries: an investment that has chronically underperformed, duplicates another investment or met your needs in the past but is less relevant to your current situation and goals. Once you identify these types of investments, you may decide to sell them and use the proceeds to take advantage of opportunities that may prove more valuable to you. • Consolidate. Over the years, you may have accumulated multiple versions of common household items — brooms, mops, hammers — which pop up mysteriously in various parts of your home. You might find it more efficient, and even less expensive, if you consolidated all these things in one centralized location. As an investor, you also might find that consolidation can offer you some benefits. Do you have one Individual Retirement Account (IRA) with one financial services provider and a second IRA with another? Do you have a couple of old 401(k) accounts with former employers? And have you scattered investments here, there and everywhere? By consolidating all these accounts in one place, you can cut down on paperwork, reduce fees and, most importantly, unite your investment dollars so that it’s easier for you to see what you have and then follow a single, coherent investment strategy. • Prepare for turbulent weather. As you know, springtime can bring heavy rains, hail, strong winds and other threats to your home. As part of your overall spring cleaning, you may want to check the condition of your roof, clear branches away from your house, clean your gutters and downspouts, and take other steps to protect your property from the ravages of Mother Nature. And just as you need to safeguard your home, you’ll want to protect the lifestyles of those who live in that home — namely, your family. You can help accomplish this by reviewing your life and disability insurance to make sure it’s still sufficient for your needs. • Get professional help. You may find that you can’t do all your spring cleaning by yourself. For example, if your carpets and rugs are heavily soiled, you may need to call in a professional cleaner. Or if your tree branches have grown out of control, you might need to bring in a tree trimmer. Similarly, when you decide to “tidy up” your portfolio, you’ll need some assistance from a financial professional — someone who can study your current mix of investments and recommend changes, as needed, to help ensure your holdings are suitable for your risk tolerance, time horizon and short- and long-term goals. Spring cleaning can reinvigorate your home and your overall outlook. And by tidying up your investment portfolio, you can help gain some of that same optimism — for your future. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor. a

For compassionate, and reliable care choose Newberry Hospice.


YOUR 401 (k)?

Most brokers will tell you that investing in a 401(k) is an important way to save for retirement. What few bother to say is that it’s not enough just to have a 401(k). To get the most from your 401(k) when you retire, you have to actively manage it now. At Edward Jones, we’ll work with you to help ensure that your 401(k) portfolio accurately fits your goals. So your 401(k) can work for you, not the other way around. To learn how Edward Jones can help you make sense of your 401(k), call or visit your local financial advisor today.

Two Rivers Gallery Joanne Baeth of Bonanza, Oregon will be exhibiting three Collective Visions art quilts at Two Rivers Gallery in Chiloquin, for the month of April. Collective Visions is a group of art quilters who participate in a group project each year. Each person creates a design, enlarges it, and divides it into sections. The sec-

Quilt artists were Joanne Baeth, Susan Massini, Cheryl Carbone, Dona Ford and Louise Page. Machine quilting was done by Joanne Baeth. COLORWHEEL KALEIDOSCOPE was designed by Joanne Baeth. Each quilt artist was given the same sixty degree pattern and specific color instructions. Techniques included raw edge applique, decorative stitching, fabric paints and lots of glitzy embellishments. Quilt artists were Joanne Baeth, Dona Ford, Carole Bowen, Louise Page and Susan Massini. Machine quilting and hand beading around the outside edges was done by Joanne Baeth.

140 So. 1st Street, Chiloquin, OR 541 783-3326 Winter Hours are Mon thru Sat 11-4

tions are distributed to the other members of the group who complete their section using any technique, fabric, fibers or embellishments that they choose. The sections are then returned to the original designer who sews them together and finishes the quilt. Collective Visions gives us an opportunity as a group to explore fiber arts techniques and integrate other art mediums such as paints, inks and embellishments. SEW TROPICAL is from a design drawn by Joanne Baeth. Each member of the art quilt group completed a section using only purples, greens and yellows. They were also asked to include a gecko. Techniques included texture magic, wool felting, fabric manipulation, thread painting and raw edge applique. Quilt artists were Joanne Baeth, Kathy Adams, Dona Ford, Susan Massini and Louise Page. Machine quilting was done by Joanne Baeth. (To be pictured in April 15th issue.) SUMMER FANTASY is a recreation of a water color painting by Bev Barmore, Joanne’s sister, Silks, sheers, inks, paints, silk rovings and beads were used.

Obituaries & Death Notices Death Notices

By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer I am getting too old to have old animals, especially, old cats. They are so high maintenance. I have three old cats right now. The kids are16-1/2 and mom is 17-1/2 years old. The old girl kitty, Grisabella (after CATS the musical) is a shaggy long haired gray cat who has lost her shine- but not her voice. At four months she was hit by a car and had a broken back leg and pelvis. Lately she loudly announces that she has just taken a C.R.A.P. (stands for cat’s really awful poop). At that point she races through the house at lightening speed (not lightning- I mean she is now lightened) and stops again to be sure I am aware of her little present. It is a good thing, too, because of her creaky old posterior area she sometimes has her old kitty butt hanging both inside and outside of the litter box and she barely makes the target area on many occasions, leaving some part of herself on the inside and some on the outside! Now, add two more cats and multi cat litter to the mix and I am cleaning the litter box three or four times a day- minimally! So, old Grisabella meows when she craps. The old Boy Cat, Harrison Ford, AKA Harry Cat, meows that he cannot get over the barrier I have in the hallway blocking curious OLD dogs who are interested in their share of Kitty Roca. Sometimes I apparently tug the board too shut and he gets angry about it because he cannot walk through the kitty door spaceso he screams. He also meows when he is hun- Grisabella- 1/2 in 1/2 out gry. He likes small fresh tablespoon sized portions of food that I put into his bowl on demand, assuring that he will get the food and not have to share with his mom or sister. He also screams for a bowl of milk. When he doesn’t finish all of the milk and his mom, Mama Kitty, (AKA Tar Tar-she’s black) gets some, Houston, we have another problem! She gets diarrheaHarry Cat- meows and she says nothing. She doesn’t for everything meow- she explodes. Mostly in the cat bow- thank heaven, but she is a tracker, so, if there happens to be another cat mess in the box, she walks through her own mess in a straight line out of the litter box and across every single cat pad and rug in the entire cat room, finally settling on top of the scratcher dealie after a good snog of the ever present catnip and going completely bananas for a few minutes- she then settles down and has a good nap! As a matter of fact, now that I think Mama Kitty about it, after nearly two decades of Milk Taboo owning the trio- as part of my greater menagerie, I just clean, scrub, scoop, vacuum, wash the mats and rugs, take out the smelly trash and get ready for more crap the next day! And you thought that being a senior person is tough! See you next month! a

Burns gives an in-depth look at the jazz musicians and singers of the late 1930’s. Swing-mania is still going strong on 52nd Street, but it has been reignited with pulsing, stomping sounds from the bands of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw, and infused with the blues by the unforgettable voices of Billie Holiday and a newcomer—a teenage singer named Ella Fitzgerald.

April 28 MUSIC Twist & Shout at the TowER – 8:00pm. Definitive

Beatles experience played by brilliant musicians with an inherent understanding of why The Beatles will forever be the most beloved and respected rock band in history. Beginning with the early hits, colored with film clips from the 60’s, with Twist and Shout it’s almost like you were there. There is no band in the world who both look this much like the original artists themselves but are also superb musicians able to capture the original thrill of the young Beatles as well as the revolutionary impact of this visionary group of musicians.
