La Pine, OR - Midstate Electric Cooperative recently held a career day for high school students across their service territory. The events were hosted on May 16 and May 23 at the co-op’s headquarters facility in collaboration with the area schools. Drawing nearly 60 participants, students were given the opportunity to learn firsthand about potential careers at rural electric co-ops.

The four-hour curriculum began by explaining that electric co-ops are unique because they are notfor-profit, member-owned electric utilities. They are operated for the benefit of the members, rather than to earn profits for investors. Videos of the history of electric co-ops and of the various career opportunities available were shown.

“One week ago, there was a huge hole in the ground. Now it has been filled in, the groundbreaking phase is behind us, and construction is officially underway,” announced John Jepson, Senior Philanthropy Officer of the St. Charles Foundation. The Foundation, “led by a committed and forward-thinking group of local residents, is moving ever-closer to our goal of raising $1.5 million toward the total project cost of $5.5 million,” continued Jepson. See St. Charles in La Pine page 6

After going 23-3 in the regular season – the most wins in a single season since the LPHS baseball program was formed – the Hawks weren’t done breaking records. The team went on to win its first league championship since 1990 – thereby making an appearance at the state playoffs. See LPHS Baseball page 3

The Story of Our Country’s Birth, The Declaration of Independence and the 4th of July The American Revolution was a political upheaval that took place between 1765 and 1783 during which colonists in the Thirteen Colonies maintained by force of arms their refusal to submit to the authority of the King of the United Kingdom and Ireland and Parliament of Great Britain, and founded the independent United States. Starting in 1765, members of the American colonial society rejected the authority of the British Parliament to tax them and to create other laws affecting them without colonial representatives in the government. During the following decade, protests continued to escalate by colonists (known as Patriots), as in the Boston Tea Party in 1773, during which patriots destroyed a consignment of taxed tea from the Parliamentcontrolled and favored East India Company. The British responded by closing Boston Harbor, then followed with a series of legislative acts which effectively reSee COUNTRY'S BIRTH page 19

Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Scheduled for July 29 in La Pine By Newberry News Staff

Each year, the U.S. generates approximately 230 million tons of “trash” or “garbage.” Every American discards an average of more than 1,650 pounds of trash a year – or about 4.6 pounds per person per day. “We recycle some 40 percent of our garbage,” said Chad Centola, of Deschutes County’s Solid Waste Agency. “This is significantly higher than the national average of less than 25 percent.” When household hazardous waste disposal was first offered in Deschutes County, a one-day opportunity held in Bend in the mid-1990s, the turnout of between 1,000 and 1,200 vehicles was overwhelming. “We decided it was not good service to the community,” Centola recalled. After new facilities were unveiled in 2007 at Knott Landfill, hazardous waste recycling began being offered twice a month (on the second and fourth Saturday). “Extending this opportunity to the more rural communities of Redmond, Sisters and La Pine started in 2014,” Centola noted. “Held once a year, these drop-off events are admittedly expensive to operate -- $5,000 to $20,000 each – but the results more than justify the dollars spent.” (To quantify: Deschutes County spent a total of $200,000 in 2016 for recycling efforts, and shipped off 530,000 pounds of hazardous waste.) What did people do before the ambitious program was instituted? “They saved hazardous waste, or threw it in the garbage," claimed Centola. He has a

jar of mercury (“a pretty toxic substance”) in his office to prove the point. He speculates that it was used in the days of gold prospecting in Southwest Oregon, which dates back to 1851. The once-a-year, one-day event in La Pine takes place on Saturday, July 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the LPHS front parking lot (51633 Coach Road). The following list details what materials are – and are not – acceptable. What’s Accepted: Oil and latex paints & stains, Thinners, solvents, fuels Oil-soaked rags & absorbents, Pool & spa chemicals Garden products (herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) Vehicle fluids (coolants, lubricants, fuels, brake fluid & transmission fluid, etc.), Propane tanks & camp stove cylinders, Aerosols (paints, garden sprays, cleaners, etc.) Mercury & mercury-containing items (thermometers, thermostats, etc.), Fluorescent tubes & compact fluorescent bulbs, Rechargeable batteries, Household cleaners

By Newberry News Staff La Pine resident Theresa Hane “always looked forward to reading the Newberry Eagle. So when I saw an ad for a sales representative, I told myself, ‘you need to call about that job!’” To say she was familiar with the profession is an understatement. “I sold group health insurance for 14 years while living in Salem,” Hane noted, “overseeing 13 agents and 400 clients. I loved working with business owners, and understanding their needs and goals. I even enjoyed the challenge of cold calling. The Newberry Eagle Advertising Manager Theresa Hane immediately forgives 11-year-old Floyd for stepping on – and breaking – an expensive rein when she was temporarily distracted. A competitive horsewoman who most recently lived in Montana, Hane plans to offer riding lessons as soon as Floyd and her other horse Teddy are settled in their new corral in La Pine. THE

downside was dealing with five levels of managers at the corporate level.” Despite the financial rewards, Hane and her husband Kent relocated to La Pine five years ago (after also living together in Montana). She was already familiar with Central Oregon – having spent time in Sunriver where her parents owned a home for 30 years. In addition to making those visits, she obtained a degree from Colorado State in Forestry & Natural Resources, and devoted herself to becoming a horse trainer and instructor. “Horses are my passion,” admitted Hane, who took part in “invitation-only” events throughout the U.S. with world-renowned coaches. “I’ll never forget my first instructor and mentor,” she recalled. “He had been in the Mexican cavalry, and taught me (among so many other valuable lessons) ‘not to judge anyone until you’ve been in their boots.’ In moving to La Pine, Hane’s plan “was to get my horse business going again, but at the same time, I really missed sales.” Now she’ll be able to do both. “It’s so fun to be in a small town,” she said. “And I’m getting to know La Pine and Sunriver much better through talking with its business owners. I meet so many interesting people. “Working with the Newberry Eagle really fits into my life. And I still get to do cold calling!”

Extensive Soil Survey Underway

By The Newberry Eagle News Staff “We’re trying to get as much information as possible at this point,” explained ODOT spokesman Peter Murphy. “Five test wells have been dug (which involves drilling a hole and extracting quarry samples) to understand precisely what’s below the ramps and the bridge. We also plan to do an electronic analysis of the soil core samples, and will hire a consultant to help us interpret the results of this extensive survey. What we learn will determine the next steps.”

Dispelling Mosquito Myths & Warning About Wasp/Bee Stings By Newberry News Staff To separate myth from fact about these irritating and seemingly ubiquitous insects, La Pine Fire Chief Mike Supkis provided the following information: Myth: Both male and female mosquitoes bite. Fact: Only female mosquitoes, who need human blood (or that of warm-blooded animals) to develop fertile eggs, bite. And they can smell their victims from several hundred feet. Myth: A mosquito is a mosquito is a mosquito – they’re all the same. Fact: There are more than 3,000 varieties of mosquitoes, and they exist practically anywhere – from the Arctic tundra to tropical rain forests, from sea level to the height of the Himalayas. Myth: Once a mosquito bites you, it dies (like bees). Fact: If a female mosquito finds enough victims to bite and avoids being squashed, it can live as long as three weeks. During that time, it may lay up to five clutches of more than 100 eggs each. Myth: Mosquitoes prefer cooler temperatures. Fact: Mosquitoes, which are cold-blooded creatures, prefer temperatures of 80 degrees and higher. They are most prevalent at sunrise and sunset. Myth: When you get a mosquito bite, the best thing to do is scratch it. Fact: As tempting as it may be, avoid scratching – which can further irritate the skin and cause infection. Instead, wash the area with warm, soapy water.

If this doesn’t reduce the itchiness, try an overthe-counter itch relief cream, or mix a bit of baking soda with water to form a thick paste that can be applied to the bite. “Taking care of yourself during Central Oregon summers also means addressing the dangers of bee and wasp stings,” counseled Chief Supkis. “Put up traps in areas where people congregate, and stock a first aid kit in an easily accessible location. “Be sure to have a supply of Benadryl or Diphenhydramine on hand. (This is an overthe-counter antihistamine helpful in relieving reactions to bug bites.) Carefully follow all dosage instructions to decrease the risk of serious side effects. If you have questions, the Internet (such as the Fire District’s web site or Web MD) can be a source of useful information.” Solution:

Head coach Bo DeForest, commenting on the historic season, said: “I’ve coached these guys since they were young, seeing them progress through little league and middle school. We could tell from early on that this group was going to be special. “We’ve been building depth to our program for a number of years,” he continued. “Even when the lineups were loaded with freshman players, the team showed promise. Now, as juniors, they were joined by other talented underclassmen in being ‘primed’ for success. “Through it all, these young men have always stuck together, and are determined to bring pride back to La Pine. I believe with all my heart that they have paved the road for the future of La Pine baseball –

and other team sports as well. “I know I get a little over the top and possessive,” admitted DeForest. “But I’ve always loved La Pine, and am so happy that its athletic programs are now being looked at in a positive light. That hadn’t been the case for a long time.” According to DeForest (who graduated from LPHS in 1992 and whose son Wyatt plays catcher): “A lot of people played a part in the team’s success. Special credit for helping make a difference goes to the parents and the community for their support, as well as the other coaches. Some of the dads have worked together since their sons were only five years old!” Looking ahead, DeForest predicts that “the Hawks will be a playoff team for many years to come.”

Midstate Electric Cooperative Invests in Our Community

Oregon and Deschutes County Circuit Court Receive National Family Law Innovation Award The Deschutes County Circuit Court and Oregon’s Statewide Family Law Advisory Committee have received a prestigious national award for their informal, expedited domestic relations trial program. The program is used in all types of family law disputes, including divorce, child custody and child support, spousal support, and parenting time.  Deschutes County Circuit Court Judge Wells Ashby accepted the Irwin Cantor Innovative Program Award at the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) national

conference held in Boston on May 31. “We are actively working to develop and expand these kinds of innovative court processes as more people are appearing in court without a lawyer,” said Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Balmer. “This process is fast and voluntary, can save litigants time and money, and helps people feel heard – which increases their confidence that they are getting a fair and impartial hearing even if the decision is not in their favor.

La Pine Community Health Center Completes Expansion to Accommodate Growth

The La Pine Community Health Center (LCHC) has experienced substantial growth the past few years and so an additional 5,400 square feet was added to the East (back) side of the building on Huntington Road in La Pine. With the increased number of patients and the many additional services they provide, LCHC outgrew the 9,344 square feet at their location on Huntington Road in La Pine. LCHC has grown from 20 employees in 2012 to over 60 currently and the number of patients increased from 4,000 to over 9,000. Although the current medical space at LCHC will support 3,000 additional new patients, if growth continues as consistently as it has the past four years, LCHC will be ready to meet the needs of the community. The expansion provides space to increase the current programs of Outreach, Medicaid Enrollment, Case Management, Behavioral Health Consultants and administrative staff.

The addition also includes a community conference room that will not only be used by LCHC for staff meetings but will also be used for community classes that LCHC offers at this time but must hold elsewhere. The conference room will be available for community members and organizations to use free of charge. Contact Courtney at 541-876-2135 to reserve the room for your event. The leadership of LCHC are pleased to have the health center continue to be part of the economic development progress for La Pine and surrounding communities. Providing primary medical care to patients of all ages from prenatal care through geriatric care has always been the priority of the staff and they are ready to care for the medical needs of the communities they serve now and into the future. Tours of the completed expansion will be given during the Annual Open House on August 9th, 2017 from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm.

“I love coming home from work.”

“We’ll be here rain or shine,” pledged Midstate Electric Cooperative’s employees (left to right) Renita Cuevas, Shawntaye Peek, Becky Mackel, Sina Streeter and Doug Buchanan. Shown at the Habitat for Humanity of La Pine Sunriver build site on Skidgel Road (off Burgess), these five volunteers spent a Friday last month under the supervision of Steve Krebs (Habitat’s in-house contractor) -- exemplifying the company’s commitment to “be a good neighbor and invest in our community.” Marketing & Communications Associate Renita Cuevas explained that “Midstate Electric selects many projects to support, based on the interests of its employees and the needs in La Pine.” Previous examples include youth coaching activities, serving as board members for local nonprofits, hosting blood drives, supporting the senior center, school fundraisers and food drives.

Interview edited by Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer

“Send me a question and I’ll answer it – my phone number and private email address are on my business card. We’re not that big of a city that I can’t take a call of answer an email.” -Dennis Scott Six months into his two-year term, Mayor Dennis Scott is not reticent in detailing the difference between “then and now” in how local government business is conducted. “In the past, there was not a lot of community outreach to keep people informed. City business was conducted ‘behind closed doors,’ and it seemed as if many were excluded from the decisions being made. Under those circumstances, why would people want to become involved? “We’re working with a whole new regime,” said Scott, “including the city manager, public works manager, two city council and two planning commission members, an economic development officer from Mississippi, and an administrative assistant. It’s a new start for La Pine. “Everyone is on board about letting the public know what’s happening in the community -- from Internet postings about upcoming city meetings to the regular mayoral reports posted on Facebook. And the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive,” he said. “Yet while citizens have to know what’s going on, it’s equally important that elected officials know what people are thinking. How will we know what you want and need if you don’t tell us? Don’t be afraid to speak out. You won’t be criticized. Not all opinions are the same, and we’re open to hearing them – whether you live within or outside La Pine’s city limits.” Scott provided proof of this claim. “The planning commission recently passed an ordinance that subsequently didn’t even come up for a vote before the city council. (It would have made having an attached garage mandatory when building a house.) The city council talked to taxpayers and citizens, and listened to what they had to say,” Scott explained. “They were opposed to the ordinance, and as a result, we decided not to move forward. “Being mayor, if you’re not just a

figurehead, means you’re working for the people you represent,” he asserted. “And the more people speak out about the issues that matter to them, the more this type of decision-making will occur. Reach out -- not just to me, but to other council members and city employees as well. Come to meetings, and become involved.” Scott emphasized that “government isn’t the only area where people need to step up to the plate. Every organization in town – from the Chamber to Parks & Rec, the Senior Center, and our nonprofits – needs more citizen involvement. Their future is endangered unless they can attract a fresh mix to complement existing talents. “The past is good, and we can learn from it. But we’re focusing on the future,” he added. (Examples include developing a five-year plan with ODOT, and working with COCC in hopes of building a satellite campus here.) “What do citizens want La Pine to look like in 10 years? As elected officials, we need to factor in those answers. I plan to use the rest of my term to listen, hear what people from throughout the community have to say – and move ahead accordingly. (As mayor, I’ll be around at many local events. So just say ‘hi’ or ‘thanks, Dennis.')" Scott emphasized that “we need new blood and new ideas. Whether you’ve just moved here from another area, or are a long-term resident, whether you’ve never been involved in community affairs, or are a seasoned pro – what matters is being progressive in your ideas and looking ahead to the future. “No matter what some people may want, La Pine is growing and will become a different city than in the past – those are just the facts. With community input, we can control how that happens. The idea is not to make La Pine bigger and bigger and bigger, but rather to make it a better city. A city for our future generations to live in -- and be proud of.”

Jim Williams Traces Evolution of Local Ham Radio Efforts

By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer “Since my wife is also a ham operator, I don’t have to choose between her and my radio,” claimed Jim Williams, who goes by the nicknames J.W. or Ol’ Jim. A ham operator since 1971, he recalls when Morse code was the primary mode of transmitting information. “Not a lot of people use it anymore,” Williams said, “although those signals still go through when nothing else will. “Now we have all kinds of ways to transmit, including voice” he continued. “The sky is the limit. As another example, if someone gets hurt, their name is sent in digital form due to privacy concerns.” Williams’ career as an electrician (highlighted when “I got to have control of a main connector station with 800,000 volts of power”) came to an end when he retired and moved with his wife Creagh to La Pine in 1979. He was soon asked to “round up some people” to handle emergency communications and coordinate with other entities such as ODOT. “Twentytwo ham radio operators came to that first meeting,” recalled Williams. “We’ve grown since then to cover three counties: Deschutes, Klamath and Lake.” The group was “still in its infancy” when a fire ravaged La Pine, and the Red Cross began staging evacuations of local residents. “No one had considered what to do with horses, livestock and other small animals,” Williams claimed. “So, we coordinated bringing them to the rodeo grounds, and even spent the night taking care of them. It made us realize what would be asked of us in other emergency situations.” The August 21 eclipse, projected to attract as many as one million people to Central Oregon, is the immediate focus. “We’ll be on call 24 hours a day for two

A ham radio operator since 1971, Jim Williams is credited with forming a local group of volunteers to handle emergency communications in coordination with ODOT and other agencies. Now spanning three counties, the members are gearing up for the August 21st solar eclipse that is projected to draw as many as one million people to Central Oregon.

days, which tapers off to12 hours a day for a 48-hour period at both the front and the rear of the event,” he promised. “The key is to be flexible, and able to adapt – whatever arises.” Williams pointed out that ham radio operators, despite the demands placed on them, and the key role they can play in emergency situations, donate their time. “As amateurs, we’re not allowed by FCC regulations to charge anything. But we contribute gladly, and welcome new operators. “If you’re interested, we’ll help you get started, share the apparatus you’ll need, and encourage you to attend the classes we offer,” he emphasized. “We love to add to our pool of local talent.” (Some of these dedicated ham radio operators will be stationed in front of the La Pine Fire District during Frontier Days. “It’s a good place for people to stop, and find out more about what we do and how they might join us,” said Williams.)

Free Summer Meals Offered for Local Kids


Local Eagle Scout Fixed Bikes – and Gave Them Away By Newberry News Staff Writer

By Newberry News Staff Writer

o make sure children have access to food during summer break, Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon is partnering with the Oregon Department of Education and other agencies to provide free meals to children each summer at sites around the state. (The Summer Food Service Program is paid for by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.) In Central Oregon, more than 20 sites are offering meals to kids ages 1-18. In La Pine, meals are available at the Parks &

Recreation sites located at 51390 Finley Butte Road (11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) and 16405 First Street (breakfast from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m., and lunch 12:00 – 12:45 p.m. – Tuesdays only). Call (541) 355-3740 to verify dates and times. During the school year, more than 200,000 Oregon children in need obtain free or reduced-price meals every day, but only a fraction of those students (about 16 percent) participate in the free summer meals program.

“We provide Pedicures, Nails, Gel Polish, Perms, Color, Cuts.”

Vincent Jones (pictured on right with his dad Ben, Scout Master of Troop # 7976) loves bikes. So for his Eagle Scout Service Project, intended to demonstrate “benefit to the community,” Vincent devoted several years to amassing mountain bikes. He scoured thrift stores, solicited donations, and even took a bicycle repair class. Then he meticulously fixed up each of the 18 bikes he had collected – and gave them away “to those in need” at a Chamber- and Facebookpromoted event last month.

communities of La Pine, Sunriver, Gilchrist, Crescent, Chiloquin, Chemult, Christmas Valley, Silver Lake and Fort Rock. The 11,500-square foot facility will offer both primary and immediate care, as well as radiology and laboratory services. “Rather than competing with the La Pine Community Health Center, we see ourselves

as augmenting and expanding existing services,” Jepson emphasized. “At present, people need to drive as much as 40 miles one way if their medical needs can’t be addressed locally.” Jepson noted that “all trees and wood removed when clearing the 2.5-acre site will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of La Pine Sunriver.”

Career Day continued from front page requirements, and the day-to-day expectations of the professions were distributed.Students then broke out into different career sessions according to their interests. Sessions included accounting, information technology, engineering, mechanic, marketing, and linework. The students were very engaged throughout the day – their genuine enthusiasm was quite evident. The purpose was to try to give them a well-rounded look at the different professions offered by electric coops. Following a boxed lunch, the students learned about electrical safety through MEC’s high voltage safety demonstration provided by the co-op’s linemen. Safety around power lines and equipment outside of the home was discussed. The linemen explained that electricity is constantly trying to find its way to ground through conductive objects. This was illustrated as kites, small trees, irrigation pipe and even a squirrel (the fake made-ofwood kind) came close to the live wire on the trailer. Many students were startled by the arc that was created. They witnessed the true power of electricity.

MEC is thankful to Gilchrist, La Pine and North Lake High Schools for working with them the past months to encourage students to attend the career day – these are exactly the kinds of community partnerships that will benefit young people, and expand their potential career options. Over the next five years, America’s electric co-ops will hire nearly 15,000 employees nationwide. These new hires will replace Baby Boomers reaching retirement age. These are solid jobs, with competitive pay and benefits, and this fact hasn’t necessarily been promoted or emphasized to area high school students in the past. If just one kid is inspired to realize a dream, it’s all worth it. About Midstate Electric: Midstate Electric Cooperative, Inc. (MEC) is a private, nonprofit rural electric cooperative providing electrical power and related services to over 19,000 member/owners in parts of four Central Oregon counties: Deschutes, Klamath, Lake and Lane.

“This Year’s Mosquito Hatch Went Haywire”

By Newberry News Staff Writer

If it seems that mosquitoes are far more abundant (and hence, far more obnoxious) this year, Chad Stubblefield of the Four Rivers Vector Control District assures you that you’re not imagining things. “The Little Deschutes River had a really good snowpack this year, which resulted in a lot more standing water than usual,” he prefaced. “Usually, standing water recedes after a few weeks. But this year, the water got high in March and hung around for a couple of months until the middle of May. The result was a pretty crazy mosquito hatch: dormant eggs the mosquitoes had laid on dry surfaces at the water’s edge just produced and produced and produced. You might say that ‘the hatch went haywire.’ I haven’t seen it like this in a number of years.”

This prolific production is compounded by the fact that “mosquitoes can easily fly five to 10 miles in search of blood. So the whole La Pine area has been affected,” elaborated Stubblefield. “I hope folks have their repellent!” (He recommends choosing one that contains DEET as an active ingredient. More expensive but very effective are repellents with Picardin. When asked for his advice by members of a wedding party, Stubblefield suggested the latter because it has less odor. “An effective natural repellent is oil of lemon eucalyptus,” he noted.) “People can expect the worst to be behind them,” consoled Stubblefield. “The bugs should thin out as puddles and wetlands start drying up.”

La Pine Community Health Center’s Telephone Situation Resolved!!!

By La Pine Community Health Center

As many of you know, LCHC patients have been frustrated with getting calls answered. We appreciate those of you that took the time to give us detailed information which enabled us to assess the situation regarding our incoming telephone calls. With this information we found that the telephone system was working fine— what we needed were additional employees to answer the thousands of incoming calls we receive each week! In one week we can receive over 6,000 incoming calls. As we have grown we have continued to try to keep up with the many demands that growth causes, but evidently this

part of the growth caused us more issues than we expected. Last year we purchased a new telephone and routing system and hired two additional employees so we thought that calls would be handled appropriately. But, what we discovered when a few of our patients gave us detailed information about their experiences, was that we still did not have enough staff to handle all of the scheduling calls or to route calls to the appropriate person. To resolve this issue, we are hiring an additional full time and part-time employee as operators to assist with the great number of telephone calls we receive daily. Again—thank you to those who communicated with us—we appreciate your input. To those that have been frustrated with LCHC’s telephone system, hopefully you will give us another Good thru 8-31-17 opportunity to assist Come in and meet us you so that you can 56815 Venture Lane, Sunriver receive quality medical care locally. 541-728-9096 We look forward to serving you.

Three Rivers K-8 School Wants to “Give Back to the Community”

Three Rivers Principal Tim Broadbent, flanked by (left to right) 8th grader Logan, and first graders Neil and Burke, stand beside a statue of Webster, the school’s mascot. Broadbent became “passionate about working with kids and mentoring middle-school students” while serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer.

La Pine

By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer This must be an expensive, all-inclusive resort, judging by the variety of recreational options on the roster: running, chess, yoga, drama, jewelry making, edible plant use, flytying, putting on a weekly news broadcast, lego robotics and orchestra. Actually, it’s a listing of after-school programs that students at Three Rivers School in Sunriver have available. And 88 percent of students have signed up, which proves their popularity. “We don’t have a YMCA or Boys & Girls Club in Southern Deschutes,” said Tim Broadbent, Principal. “We wanted to give the kids something fun to do after school, and we’re pretty proud of how our direct outreach to parents and their children turned out.” Three Rivers, a Title One school within the Bend-La Pine District, has 425 students, 150 of them in middle school (grades 6-8). As Broadbent noted, “economically, they range from those residing in Sunriver Resort to those whose parents are struggling financially. Approximately 55 percent of our students participate in the reduced lunch rate program. And, as the district has an open enrollment policy, we get a lot of kids whose parents have requested they come here.” Broadbent explained that “Three Rivers was formed because local parents were tired of kids getting bussed to Bend and La Pine, and decided to ‘put money behind their talk,’ I can’t emphasize enough how thankful the school is to parents and the community for their continuing donations and support.”

One of many praiseworthy aspects of Three Rivers is that every classroom does public service projects. “We’ve benefitted from the community that helps support the school, and want to give back,” said Broadbent. Projects range from raising more than $500 for the Ronald McDonald Foundation to making and selling 475 bird houses (each with a bag of bird seed) to raise money for the Sunriver Nature Center. They also include “acts of kindness” such as helping a neighbor shovel snow or providing firewood, food drives, and reading to seniors at La Pine’s Prairie House. A fourth-grade class planted 1,000 ponderosa pine seedlings, while fifth graders made fleece blankets for the Bethlehem Inn homeless shelter in Bend. “Academically, we’re very proud of how the kids are doing,” Broadbent asserted. “As just one measure, in annual district-wide examinations, they continue to improve their skill set levels. “Our music program (including mixed choir and band) is outstanding,” continued the proud principal. “In competing against bigger schools, Three Rivers consistently places in the top three. “Due to the quality of our drama productions (which have included “Cinderella,” “Annie” and this year’s “Once on This Island,” the students have been invited to stage them at Bend’s Tower Theatre.” Broadbent doesn’t hesitate to give credit for these accolades. “We have an incredibly hard-working staff of 45 people (including teaching and support) who make the school function each day. And the parents and kids are great. This is my dream job!”

Now in its third year, the 2017 Veteran Benefit Expo (produced by the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs) is taking place in Central Oregon at the Bank of the Cascades Center and Deschutes Fair Expo located at 3800 SW Airport Way in Redmond. According to spokesperson Tyler Francke: The Expo “promises ‘Everything Veteran’ with more than 70 different service providers, employers and other resources dedicated to helping veteran and their families thrive in Oregon.” The one-day event, being held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., “will be divided into different program areas, rather than being tailored to one need, that encompass all local, state and federal benefits,” he said. Program areas include: health care; education; employment (with a job fair highlighting companies that hire veterans); job seeker resources; claims (such as submitting disability claims to federal agencies); recreational benefits (such as discounts and free passes offered to veterans on hiking trails); emergency aid & homelessness; dealing with financial crises; justice issues; mental health; long-term care; transportation; and family resources. “Whatever stage of life you’re in, and whatever your interests or needs, we believe there is something for every Oregon veteran at the Expo,” noted Francke. New features this year include live entertainment, a family-friendly children’s area, and military-themed displays For more information, go to www.

CallibaetisBy Time in Central Oregon Phil Fischer Contributing Writer East Lake Rainbow

For those of you who have followed this column for any length of time, you know that I target Callibaetis on our area lakes, a lot! This is the signature hatch in our Central Oregon lakes due to it predictability, and that it lasts from late Spring through the summer and into the early Fall. This year Callibaetis have returned like clockwork and are hatching in earnest in our lower elevation lakes, and will begin soon up high. It is Callibaetis Time. Last week I fished Crane Prairie, and I experienced awesome dry fly fishing on a nice Callibaetis hatch in the flats out toward Rock Creek. A little later that week, I hit Hosmer Lake, and the Callibaetis were hatching profusely in the channel between the upper and lower lakes. I know that Lava Lake has been experiencing nice hatches on cloudy days recently. And lastly, East Lake Callibaetis hatches are right around the corner, For this month’s patters, I have chosen to revisit the entire Callibaetis lifecycle in fly patterns. Each pattern is important for various stages of the hatch. Callibaetis are a swimming mayfly nymph, and are broadly available to trout all season long. Techniques for fishing nymph and soft hackles range from hanging a Callibaetis nymph under an indicator. Don’t let the fly sit idly; move it with long slow strips to bounce the fly. Or you might try casting and stripping the fly with an intermediate line sans indicator and use gentle short strips. I often use a wooly bugger, which serves as an attractor, and a Callibaetis nymph as a dropper fly. They almost always take the dropper. Lastly, Callibaetis nymphs and soft

John Shewey, Fly Fishing Editor, to speak at Alan Stout, Sunriver Anglers Club Meeting By Sunriver Anglers The Sunriver Angler’s Club is fortunate to have John Shewey, Editor-in-Chief of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine, speak at its July meeting. This is the premier magazine for our sport with thoughtful articles and beautiful photographs of the fish and waters closest to our home. Shewey will speak at the club meeting on Thursday, July 20, 2017 with a social time beginning at 6:30 PM and the meeting starting at 7 PM. The title of Shewey’s presentation is Confessions of a Swinger: Fly Fishing for Summer – Run Steelhead. His presentation will be about his main fly fishing passion, which is pursuing summer run steelhead. Shewey relates that, “The art and passion that enshrouds steelhead fly fishing afflicts countless devotees, forming an addiction that borders on religion.” He will discuss various techniques for taking the ultimate game fish and the local rivers to fish. Shewey has a keen interest in the history of this sport and the flies used which will also be discussed. Even if you do not fly fish for steelhead, you will enjoy this casual presentation rich in beautiful photography, focused on entertainment, and not over-technical minutiae. John Shewey has a wealth of information and insight about our sport and its future. In interviewing him, I found him to be

raised bed for me; with the heavy snow last year we lost several of our greenhouses and my vegetable garden was one of them. As you can see in the first picture they are quite deep, 24 inches deep by and 3 feet wide. You do not need your raised be this deep, 15 to 18 inches will be just fine.

This is Big. By Helen Woods, Staff Writer

This is a difficult article to write. Researching it is like dropping a pebble into a pond. No matter where I drop the stone, the effects just keep rippling out. If I drop two pebbles, their effect not only radiates out but the ripples merge. At least ripples are somewhat predictable. We really can’t precisely predict the effects of this Eclipse because a total eclipse hasn’t occurred over North America in a long time. “The August 2017 eclipse will be the first with a path of totality crossing the USA’s Pacific coast and Atlantic coast since 1918. Also, its path of totality makes landfall exclusively within the United States, making it the first such eclipse since the country’s independence in 1776. (The path of totality of the eclipse of June 13, 1257, was the last to make landfall exclusively on lands currently part of the USA.” (From Wikipedia) On August 21st, the sun will be completely blocked out by the Moon and total darkness will fall on a sixtymile swath across Oregon on its way to an exit from North America near Charleston, South Carolina. For twenty miles on each side of the line of totality, viewers will see a partial eclipse. Central Oregon cities that fall on the line of totality include Madras, Dayville, Mt. Vernon, John Day, Prairie City, and Unity. “Local officials estimate that the population of Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson

counties will double, meaning 200,000 to 250,000 people visiting in the days leading up to the eclipse. That’s not even counting the tens of thousands of people who will pass through the region on their way to the Painted Hills, Mitchell and other points east.” ( apoceclipse-bend) All of this is going to be a welcome boost to our economy, but an equal strain on resources. The rumormill has it that Madras is expecting up to 1,00,000 people. This is much higher than official estimates. That’s the problem with forecasts when there is no hard data to collect. We will only know after the eclipse. La Pine won’t see the eclipse, but we will be affected. Newberry Station has been fully booked since November; all the rooms at the Westview Motel were reserved by a man from Europe; Timbercrest is also fully booked. We shouldn’t take this lightly. Highway 97 is the only direct route going north and south in Central Oregon. There are few rest stops from La Pine to Madras. Officials predict that, on the 21st, it will take 8 hours to drive the 80 miles to Madras. Port-a-potty suppliers have ordered 150 stations just for Madras and are strategically placing potties along the highway for use with daily servicing. The fire-fighting agencies are preparing for “an inevitable fire”

Really Big: Central Oregon Prepares for the Great American Eclipsegy somewhere. Gas stations can only hold so much gas in their reserves. With the increase in traffic comes increased demand. Resupply trucks will be stuck in the same traffic as everyone else meaning stations are likely to run out. Grocery stores and restaurants will be hard hit. Water will be in high demand. The average August temperature in Madras is 85 degrees. If you have been in Madras, you may have noticed that it is wide open land with virtually no shade trees. St. Charles Hospital notes that, since our population will essentially double, they are planning for double their case load, including a large number of dehydration cases. Agencies tasked with traffic control in the counties along Highway 97 have collaborated on how to keep the highway open, allowing access for supply and emergency vehicles, protection of private and public property. See what I mean about the ripples? Of course, there is a dark side to everything. At least nine motels/hotels in Madras have been investigated for illegally raising their prices. Many people who have had long standing reservations at some motels have had their reservations cancelled so the motel could re-rent the rooms to Eclipse Chasers at an exorbitant rate. Airbnb has a home listed at $1,500 per night with a three-night minimum. Even we in La Pine must plan ahead. Next month’s issue will suggest what we can do personally to avoid problems and make life easier for this high impact, short term event.

KITC/KNPC’s Gino and the Professor Dedicate Their August 9th Show to the Great American Eclipse Mr. Eclipse (aka Fred Espenak) will be featured on the Gino and Professor program on August 9th. The program airs from 8:00 to 9:30. Listen for humor (why are we not surprised?), current events, and public service announcements. The Newberry Eagle’s Helen Woods will join the “boys.”

Curiosity, etc. – Will we ever stop having solar eclipses? A total solar eclipse is a bit of astronomical slight-of-hand. This occurs when the Moon is it's closest possible distance to the Earth and therefore appears big, and the Sun is it's farthest possible distance from the earth and therefore appears small. When the orbits of these three objects line up so the moon is in

between the Earth and the Sun, the Moon appears about 4.6 times bigger than the Sun. The Moon is moving away from the Earth about 1.5 inches per year. At some point, the Moon will move far enough from the Earth that the visual size of the Moon shrinks enough that it will no longer cover the Sun’s disk. At that time, there will be no

more total solar eclipses viewed on Earth. With other facts counted in, it is estimated that the last total solar eclipse seen on the Earth will be in about …… 500 million years! The receding Moon won’t last forever. In about 15 billion years, all the forces

John and Shayla Volunteer HosPets for La Pine By Scott Arany, Communications Associate, Partners In Care

Driving south into La Pine you’ll pass a billboard on the left featuring John Buono and his dog Shayla. Both are HosPet volunteers with Partners In Care, providing cheerful support to patients receiving home health care and hospice care. “My major responsibility is to tend to the patient as much as I can,” said John. “Try to relate different things with that patient, and communicate with that patient, and make that patient feel just a heck of a lot better.” “Being a HosPet volunteer is just terrific—except that Shayla gets all the attention,” John continues. “I can see the expression on a lot of patients’ faces when they start talking to Shayla. They can communicate with Shayla a lot better than with me.” Shayla’s road to HosPet service took two months of training and discipline, two days a week, in a class near Redmond for therapy dogs. Therapy dogs need to be friendly, calm, and well socialized. Since her initial training, Shayla has developed her own skills for volunteer service. One of the things she likes to do is open the door to a care facility by pressing the handicap button with her nose. A resident of La Pine for more than two decades, John loves the peace and quiet while also appreciating recent growth. “My wife Cathy owns the quilt store here. The growth keeps the store going.” With more than 150 volunteers (both human and dog) and nearly 200 staff, Partners In Care is Central Oregon’s leading provider of compassionate home health and hospice care.

Need more Energy? Time to Relax and Unwind?

by Judy Cameron

ChiGung is one of ancient China’s MindBody healing systems that focuses on timeproven body movements and breath patterns that increase serenity and offer hope of true health. ChiGung can boost your vitality, strengthen your immune system, help you out of pain and bring you lighter moods. It also helps with posture because you stand taller, look more confident and are less likely to fall (or easier to get up, if you do.) Similar to Tai Chi, a healing and self-defense practice, ChiGung focuses solely on healing our stressed minds and overworked bodies. Notice how both disciplines share the

word Chi (Chee) which translates to Universal Wisdom – the Life Force – which animates and energizes us. ChiGung increases access to this energy so we have more available to live fully. I was a Research Nurse at a large medical center for years, but became disappointed in Western Medicine’s approaches and results. So, I began to investigate ancient practices that return us to balance. I actually used ChiGung to recover from a bad bout with Lyme disease, during which I nearly gave up hope. My tendons and joints had become extremely painful, so much so that I was, in effect, paralyzed. It was a life-altering

experience to heal. I’ve been a Stress Relief Coach for 30 years because ancient techniques truly work, when practiced. I’d love to share this remarkable system with you. Classes start in July in La Pine & Bend. Giving yourself the gift of time to unwind and to nurture your heart and soul can be life-saving. I’ll show you the movements and theory with slides and then offer time to practice with soothing music. Compassion and self-care are major keys to health, in my experience. Flyers at Senior Center.

Hydration Helps Prevent Hospitalization, Advises La Pine Fire District By Newberry Eagle News Staff

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” has been turned into a summer advisory by La Pine Fire Chief Mike Supkis: “Several glasses of water a day keep the ambulance away,” he recommended. “When it’s hot, staying hydrated is key to staying healthy. People don’t realize the amount of fluid they can lose when temperatures soar. Dehydration could even land you in the hospital – aggravating conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and circulatory or heart issues.”

Signs Of Dehydration Include:

1) Increased thirst and a dry or sticky mouth. If you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. The easiest remedy is to start drinking water (and beverages with electrolytes), but try not to get to this point. 2) Fatigue, confusion or anger. Mild levels of dehydration can affect your mood and cognitive functions. This is especially common in the young or elderly, who may seem less alert or forgetful. 3) Dry eyes or blurred vision. When your overall level of body fluid decreases, any part of the body that is normally moist is going to feel dry or irritated.

4) Headaches or disorientation. Dehydration can result in a headache or migraine, light headedness or delirium. You may also experience weakness, dizziness or nausea, because the body doesn’t have enough fluid to send to other parts of the body.

5) Lack of sweat when hot. One of the more serious signs of dehydration, this means your body is in dire need of water. “It’s also crucial to understand that hydrating properly is the most important thing you can do during hot days. But it isn’t 100 percent preventative,” warned Supkis. “If you’re working too hard or too long when it’s hot outside, your body can still overheat -- no matter how much water you’re drinking. So be aware of your body, and stop what you’re doing if you notice any of these symptoms.”

Dr. Michael Allen was born and raised in a farming community in Southern Idaho. He attended Brigham Young University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science in June, 2012. He then attended A.T. Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona and completed his residency in June, 2015 at the Houston Healthcare Family Residency program in Warner Robins, Georgia where he also served as Chief Resident. While going to school, Dr. Allen worked for five years at a Community Health Center. He spends time with his wife and four children enjoying the many outdoor activities in Central Oregon.

Dedicated Poetry by Montana Charlie

You ask me of America My land of native birth, Her rocky mountain majesty Her people, and her worth, See her banner waving bravely Like the wind forever free, See the red stripes on that banner As a tribute to the men, Who gave all they had in battle And would give all again, The White stripes for the purity Of honor we hold dear, If freedoms flame should ever fail, It will not be from here! The stars upon blue background Are the states that make this land, That stands hand in hand, united ''Out of many we are one'', May her beauty and her honor Never see a setting sun, From the mighty Teton mountain's And from sea to shinning sea, She will always be America, The land of the brave and the free, "America the beautiful"! And home sweet home to me!

Riding Old Blue Poetry by Montana Charlie Lisa the boss's wife leaned on a rail. And watched as the hands started colts. Sometimes the riders would come out on top, Other times it was too close to tell. After a while the buck-a-roos ask, If she saw one she'd like for her own? Lisa looked them all over with a well-practiced eye, then her heart settled on this blue roan. Boys, she confided, though quiet and shy, I believe I would ride the blue roan. He's the kind of a horse a lady could trust, if she was off on the range all alone. I wouldn't feel safe on just any old horse, And that one's quiet as an old milk pen calf. The cowboys bit lips, their cheeks and their tongue's, as they tried hard, to stifle a laugh! The colt she'd picked out was a beauty all right, He was sound and forthright as they come. But quiet and gentle was some other horse, and didn't apply to this ornery mare's son! They teased and cajoled her to make second choice, but her mind was made up as they say. But the cowboys believed if she took the horse on, they’d all get the chance to draw pay! She went to the barn and came back with her gear, Her bridle and shiny side saddle. The boys took one look at that kack on her arm, and knew she could not hang and rattle! Never the less as the colt danced and blew, and tried to get used to her skirt. She laid on her saddle and tightened the cinch, and got ready to make the colt work. Then on went the bridle and the blindfold on that, the boys held him as she stepped aboard. She caught up her stirrup and then gathered the reins, and then nodded to turn the colt loose. Off came the blindfold and she let out a yell, that caused more than one cowboy to curse! Our prim little miss just went with the colt, and I swear she thought it all fun! She'd quirt him each time his feet hit the ground, and each time he would put on more air.

A Special 80th Birthday Surprise in Christmas Valley By Terry Crawford, Christmas Valley Contributing Writer


here is nothing like a surprise party to make someone’s birthday really special. But when the surprise turns into a family reunion it creates a wonderful, indelible memory. Such was the case for long-time Christmas Valley resident, Barbara Anderson. On May ninth Barbara’s daughter came into town and finished last minute details with the owners and staff of the Lakeside Terrace for the next day’s party. The birthday lady arrived with her

daughter and was greeted by her oldest son Jerry with a dozen red roses. She had not seen him for 30 years. Her second son, Larry from Maine had not been to see his mom for nearly 25 years – he was right there too. The room was filled with family – children, spouses, grand and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews were all there. The family had gone all out to decorate with balloons and there was of course a beautiful rose-covered cake

inscribed Happy 80th Birthday. The event had been in the works since February and took much coordination to bring everyone together. What a wonderful memory book for Barbara. Much of the family stayed on for the rest of the week. They visited their father’s grave in Ft. Rock then had a great BBQ. The next day it was off to Prineville to see Barbara’s brother at the nursing home. The last family event was to enjoy Mother’s Day Brunch at the Ft. Rock Pub.

SRWC Awards $34,000 for Basic Neccessities

The Sunriver Women’s Club (SRWC) again supported nonprofit organizations that provide basic necessities in south Deschutes County. Basic needs include: food, shelter, clothing, health, education, child development and care, and education. They awarded $34,000 in 15 grants. As the chart shows the largest percentages of the overall funds were awarded for food, and child development and care. Food assistance awards included protein for food boxes distributed by Care and

Share of Holy Trinity Outreach, 45 days of the hot meal program of the La Pine Community Kitchen, and 379 deliveries of Meals on Wheels (Central Oregon Council on Aging). Child development and care programs are essential for the community because research shows afterschool and summer programs improve school performance. They included: the expansion of the HUB Program in Sunriver to 60 kids (La Pine Parks

and Rec), the afterschool orchestra of 28 students sponsored by the Sunriver Music Festival at Three Rivers School, and summer activities and camps for 20-40 at-risk kids (Family Access Network). Other grants addressed the essential needs of clothing and shelter. A grant to the Assistance League of Bend provides for school clothing wardrobes for 40 kids. The Newberry Habitat for Humanity received funds for health and safety home repairs for disabled, veteran and low-income homeowners. The grants provided services for needs across age groups (see second chart below). Quality day care is also shown to boost school performance of younger children; the Rising Stars Preschool will offer a scholarship. Healthy Beginnings will conduct 3 screenings of preschoolers for developmental gaps and dental, vision, and behavioral health needs. A new nonprofit expanding in the area, Devin’s Destiny, will sponsor 5 birthday parties for low-income kids. Grandma’s House,

a transitional home for pregnant girls, will provide follow-up services for teenage parents from La Pine. Students in three elementary schools will learn about viewing the solar eclipse safely due to a Sunriver Nature Center grant. Students in the Three Rivers School will create visual art products throughout the year and collaborate on a school mural in an artist-in-residence program. The Sunriver Christian Fellowship Partners in Education will award scholarships for post-high school college or vocational training. Cheryl Storm, Philanthropy Director said, “It is amazing and humbling that these dedicated organizations are able to provide the breadth of support for life’s necessities. The SRWC is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the compassionate efforts of these nonprofits.” The Sunriver Art Fair, the Winter Gala and ongoing projects throughout the year raise funds. The SRWC has awarded $537,055 in grants since 1999.

$50,000 Raised At Rotary Wine And Community Auction

GRAND TIME - THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY An enthusiastic crowd of 174 attended the club’s 15th Annual Fundraiser, “A Great Time in the Great Hall for a Great Cause!” on Friday June 2 in Sunriver Resort’s historic Great Hall. “While we are still waiting for final figures, it looks like we raised $50,000 for local nonprofits,” stated event chair Rotarian Ron Schmidt. “Attendees were extremely generous and the Sunriver Resort did an outstanding job with preparing a wonderful dining experience. It was a grand success for the numerous nonprofits we support.” Master of Ceremony Sean McDonell (Coffee 4 Kids), welcomed everyone to this year’s gala evening featuring a silent and live auction and Rotary’s popular Bids for Kids. Highlights of the evening included short presentations by Lori Henry, executive director of the La Pine Community Kitchen, and Ray Kuratek, local Rotarian president, sharing details on some of the local and international projects supported by the club. The evening also displayed the musical talents of students from Three Rivers School that Rotary supports. Since its founding twenty one ago, the Rotary Club of Sunriver-La Pine has raised and donated more than $530,000 to local nonprofits.

LA PINE GRADUATES RECEIVE ROTARY SCHOLARSHIPS Each year Rotary offers modest college scholarships to La Pine High School graduates.

Saturday July 1 at 5 PM Ted Haynes presents Suspects, in a new mystery series set in the Sunriver area. Dan, a young attorney, is spending the summer with his parents while training to compete in a triathlon. Stopping by Ken Winterpol’s house to speak with Ken’s wife Candy, he finds Ken lying injured on the porch steps. When police arrive, Dan states they will answer questions with legal counsel, not before; Dan’s area of expertise is not criminal law and he wants to be sure Candy is protected. Dan has known Candy for years; she was one of his father’s art students years ago. Dan fears they will be suspects; digging into Ken’s past he finds many with a motive to do him harm. The action goes all over Central Oregon, and even has a connection to local brewpubs. Saturday July 15 at 5 PM Jamie Harrison presents The Widow Nash. Walton Remfrey is an engineer and inventor; he made a fortune traveling to places where the earth’s wealth is extracted; Montana, South Africa, and others. Dulcy accompanied her father on all his jaunts since she was 15, until this trip. Walton suffered from syphilis; in 1904 it was a death sentence. Now it seems to have taken his mind. Walton disembarked from the ship in Seattle without either his wits or the money from selling mines in South Africa. A fortune is missing. His business partner, Victor Maslingen, calls Dulcy, wanting her to come immediately to unravel Walton’s nonsensical patter, search his journals for clues. Despite her troubled history with Victor, she goes to her father. When Walton dies, Victor has her in his clutches. Taking her father’s body east for burial, she fakes suicide disappearing into Montana. If Victor ever finds her she may not survive. Saturday July 22 at 5 PM Dave Boling presents The Lost History of Stars. In the South African Boer Wars, Afrikaner women

and children were put in concentration camps by British soldiers. Their homes were destroyed, livestock killed, they were put in fenced compounds where multiple families lived together in tents. Lettie is a teen when the war begins and her family is confined.  She cherishes memories of learning stargazing from her grandfather on their farm.  Tommy Maples, one of the British guards shares with Lettie his love of literature, giving her a copy of Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield. Such a friendship carries risk. Boling was inspired by his grandfather’s experiences to this thoughtful book. Saturday July 29 at 5 PM Keith McCafferty presents the latest in his Montana series, Cold Hearted River. A snowstorm strands a couple on a lonely trail. Sheriff Martha Ettinger is left with haunted memories and an injured hand from her part in the tragedy. Unable to drive easily, she enlists Sean Stranahan’s to go back to the scene where they find a fly wallet with the initials EH, the same initials shared by one of the greatest American authors. Patrick Willoughby, president of the Madison River Liars and Fly Tiers Club, was approached days earlier by a man purporting to sell fishing gear from Earnest Hemingway. The fishing gear is valuable, if parts of an unpublished story were included, the value would be beyond measure. More bodies pile up and the action goes from Montana to Michigan, Wyoming, and ultimately Cuba. If you enjoyed The Paris Wife, you will find additional stories of Hemingway in this literary mystery. Call 541-593-2525 or e-mail or stop by Sunriver Books & Music to sign up to attend the free presentations. There will be drawings for prizes and light refreshments. More information is at

La Pine Ya Ya Sisterhood Society Continuing Education Scholarship

Have you been out of school for a while and


scinded Massachusetts Bay Colony’s rights of self-governance and caused the other colonies to rally behind Massachusetts. In late 1774, the Patriots set up their own alternative government to better coordinate their resistance efforts against Great Britain, while other colonists preferred to remain aligned to the British Crown and were known as Loyalists or Tories. Tensions erupted into battle between Patriot militia and British regulars when the British attempted to capture and destroy Colonial military supplies at Lexington and Concord in April 1775. The conflict then developed into a global war, during which the Patriots (and later their French, Spanish, and Dutch allies) fought the British and Loyalists in what became known as the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783). Each of the thirteen colonies formed a Provincial Congress that assumed power from the old colonial governments and suppressed Loyalism,

and from there they built a Continental Army under the leadership of General George Washington. The Continental Congress determined King George’s rule to be tyrannical and infringing the colonists’ rights as Englishmen, and they declared the colonies free and independent states on July 4, 1776. The Patriot leadership professed the political philosophies of liberalism and republicanism to reject monarchy and aristocracy, and they proclaimed that all men are created equal. In April 1776, the North Carolina Provincial Congress issued the Halifax Resolves, explicitly authorizing its delegates to vote for independence. In May, Congress called on all the states to write constitutions and eliminate the last remnants of royal rule. By June, nine colonies were ready for independence; one by one, the last four fell into line

Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and New York. Richard Henry Lee was instructed by the Virginia legislature to propose independence, and he did so on June 7, 1776. On the 11th, a committee was created to draft a document explaining the justifications for separation from Britain. After securing enough votes for passage, independence was voted for on July 2. The Declaration of Independence was drafted largely by Thomas Jefferson and presented by the committee; it was slightly revised and unanimously adopted by the entire Congress on July 4, marking the formation of a new sovereign nation which called itself the United States of America. The Second Continental Congress approved a new constitution, the “Articles of Confederation,” for ratification by the states on November 15, 1777, and immediately began operating under their terms. The Articles were

Opportunities Abound at La Pine Park and Recreation District! By La Pine Park and Recreation District This past year has been one of foundation building and expansion for the District, thanks to a multitude of partnerships, sponsorships and grants, all of which are integral in paving the way for future growth and success. We are proud to say that we have been challenged to expand and grow our programs and, thanks to the incredible support from the citizens of South County, we have, and continue to, achieve success with only a $.30 tax base! One of the ways we have been able to grow is through intentional collaborations. It is within this context that ample opportunities exist in which community partners have been involved. In our After-school Programs, both in La Pine and Sunriver, collaboration has enhanced program offerings and has benefited students tremendously. Collaborators include the La Pine Rodeo Association, who has provided training on horse care and riding to our students, Oregon State University, promoting healthy cooking and eating with a nutrition series, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Department and the La Pine Fire Department, training students on safety, the Red Cross and the La Pine Community Health Center, providing education on preparing for emergencies and making healthy life-choices, Sunriver Resort and SHARC providing opportunities for swimming in an effort to promote healthy activities and well-being among our students. In our Youth Sports Program, partnerships with South Central Little League brought a rejuvenation and clean-up effort to our newly beautified ball fields and La Pine United Soccer Association provided opportunities for our youth in our community to play on traveling soccer teams. In our Adult Programs, partnerships with Central Oregon Community College, the Small Business Development Center, Best Western Newberry Station, FitZone, La Pine Chamber and Bend-La Pine Schools (just to name a few) has allowed the District to expand from education and recreation to also include health and business development as a part of our core offering. Because of the generous contributions of many local businesses, groups and organizations, we have been able to purchase much needed equip-

ment and supplies for the District, benefiting our many programs. A few in particular, without whose support we would not be able to do what we do, include the City of La Pine, Sunriver Women’s Club, Sunriver Rotary, Cascade Natural Gas, the Kenpo Karate group, Ya Ya Sisterhood Society, La Pine Lion’s Club, La Pine Mom’s Group, The Door, La Pine RC Flyers, and La Pine Pickleball Club. We would like to say a heart-felt “thank you” to our community in general and to these groups in particular. It is through their support, and many other groups like them, that we continue to expand our programs for the benefit of everyone in South County. Grant opportunities are provided for us through The La Pine Park and Recreation Foundation. Without this organization, we could not apply for or accept grant funds. This year alone the Foundation has raised a little over $166,000.00 for the District. We would be remiss without also giving a heart-felt “thank you” to the Foundation for their work in securing grants from Midstate Electric, Special District Association of Oregon, Oregon Recreation and Park Association, Cascade Relays, Opportunity Knocks and U. S. Bank. The La Pine Park and Recreation Foundation plays a vital role in the overall success of the District and we are grateful for their on-going support and partnership. Given all of this, our community should be proud of the success of the District because we have all played a part in this achievement. A final heart-felt “thank you” goes out to the community – individual members, groups, organizations and businesses alike - that have shown support in various ways to make our District both family-friendly and retiree-friendly. We look forward to this next year and to new partnerships and the many great opportunities they will bring. If you are interested in volunteering in any way, please call us at 541-536-2223, contact us by email at or check out our website at for more information. As always, we also encourage people to drop by our office anytime to see what we’re up to! La Pine Park and Recreation District – where we Play…Learn…Explore every day!

All federal power was reserved to the Congress of the Confederation,

whose “President of the United States in Congress Assembled” was also chair of the de facto cabinet, called the Committee of the States. It was not until the United States Constitution was enacted, that government was separated into coequal legislative, executive, and judicial branches.

Real Estate Governor Brown Signs House Bill 2745B, A Tool for Central Oregon Inter-City Transit Service By Central Oregon Inter Governmental Council (COIC)

June 27, 2017 – Bend, ORE – Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC) is pleased to announce that House Bill 2745B was signed into legislation by Governor Kate Brown on Thursday, June 22. House Bill 2745, an innovative approach to funding transit in Central Oregon, was specifically designed to meet the needs of Central Oregon. Rep. John Huffman of The Dalles introduced the bill which the House passed 53 to 7 and the Senate passed 22 to 8 earlier this spring. Cascades East Transit (CET) spans nearly 100 miles north to south and 50 miles east to west and provides transit service to rural and urban communities. CET, the largest transit provider in Oregon, has no dedicated, stable funding. Cascades East Transit was formed in 2008 as a program of COIC, a cooperative regional government, to operate the regional transit system. Prior to this legislation, COIC did not have the ability to pursue voter-approved funding because the organization was formed under state statute ORS 190. The legislation amends state statute ORS 190 and allows COIC to seek voter approved funding when and if communities choose to pursue transit funding.

An advisory committee was formed in 2012 to research transit funding options and recommended this model. HB 2745B was supported by all Central Oregon cities and Chambers of Commerce. “This provides the opportunity to fund transit reliably and efficiently while assuring local control and flexibility for each community,” said Karen Friend, COIC Executive Director. HB2745B ensures local control, so each community decides when they need transit and how much it’s willing to pay for it. “While this is a big win for Central Oregon, there are no immediate changes to CET service as a result of the House bill,” said Friend. “We look forward to working with each of the Central Oregon communities to determine if their voters desire to expand transit service. Simply providing Central Oregon the option to fund transit at a level most appropriate for each community is a huge milestone for our regional transit service.” “A robust transit service in Bend and across the region would help move people around efficiently and reliably. A sustainable funding source is crucial to accomplishing that. This bill, supported

by all the cities in the region, would help us accommodate the transportation needs of this growing region,” said Bend City Manager Eric King. “COIC is a valuable
