Central Oregon Symphony Lends its Cellists to La Pine Library

By Staff Writer

The La Pine Chronicle January 19,1977 (First Edition) Now Under Construction…. New La Pine Park

By Staff Writer Book borrowers paused, video renters took a break from perusing titles, and computer users lifted their hands from the keyboard as cello music filled the La Pine public library’s community room on a recent Saturday afternoon. The product of a partnership between the Central Oregon Symphony and two area library systems, “Music in Public Places” drew a crowd of several dozen attendees. The hour-long concert by the Bend Cello Collective featured music by composers ranging from Mozart to Michael Jackson. The musicians (from left to right) – Amy Mitchell, Emma Chaput, Evan Sigvaldsen, Austin Lenahan, Janet Gesme and Leo Reincke –

include a helicopter pilot, a science teacher, a marathon runner and speakers of German, Russian and Spanish. “This was my grandmother’s idea,” admitted nine-year-old Braeden Poore, the youngest concert-goer. “But I’m happy that I came.” (Grandmother Annie Stiles, manager of the Outpost, was perpetuating a family tradition, having been introduced to classical music by her father when “I was just a little kid.”) A second Central Oregon Symphony performance, also in the library’s community room and offered free of charge, will feature the Dove String Quartet. It takes place on November 4 at 2 p.m.

By Staff Writer

“This is what our forefathers envisioned when writing the Constitution – gatherings of citizens and their elected representatives where no subjects are off limits.” Senator Ron Wyden, prefacing a “town hall” meeting in La Pine, reiterated his belief that “Oregonians deserve access to voice their opinions directly.” Wyden, who previously served in the U.S. House of Representatives (1981 to 1996), was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996. “I pledged to have an open meeting in every county in Oregon every year that I serve,” Oregonians he said then. Thus far in 2017, he has deserve access held 68 town halls – four in Deschutes to voice their County alone – for a total of 849 since opinions directly. making his initial commitment. As the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, Wyden characterizes himself as an “independent voice for Oregonians and the nation.” He has been praised for his ability to diffuse partisan tensions and encourage bipartisan cooperation. “My approach is to “lower the decibel level,” he explained to the large crowd that had gathered in La Pine’s Community Center.

Issues raised and addressed during the 90-minute question and answer session ranged from health care to prescription drug costs (which Wyden described as “the fastest-growing part of the health care tab”), climate change, veterans’ services, the threat posed by North Korea, foster care, social security, Medicare, preservation of natural resources and wildfires. (Wyden, known as a supporter of environmental protection measures, noted that he is introducing a bill with Idaho’s Senator Mike Crapo (R) to focus resources on fire prevention efforts and forest health projects. “If you short change fire prevention, you may save money today, but you’re going to spend a whole lot more down the road when fires that would have been smaller become infernos,” he claimed.) “The issues discussed today in La Pine are complicated,” he noted, “and we in government have to do real work to solve them. Holding town hall meetings such as this one, where there was not a bad question in the house, is the way government is supposed to work. On my watch, I want to make sure that everyone gets heard.”

3,000-Square-Foot St. Vincent Expansion Underway By Staff Writer “Sometimes out of habit, I want to go into the back of the building, but there’s no back to go into!” admitted CEO Jerry Moore, who is adjusting to construction efforts that will expand the St. Vincent de Paul facility by 3,000 square feet. “What was the back has been torn down, and we’ll have a large drive-up covered area for donation drop-off and storage. Work is going along really well, including digging for the foundation and pouring the concrete. We’re actually a little ahead of schedule, and hope to finish by November.” Moore explained. “This project culminates several years of talking, and only became possible after we obtained a significant amount of grant money,” he continued. “The efforts will include sidewalks, paving and landscaping in harmony with that of our next-door neighbor, MidOregon Credit Union.” Moore recalled that he first visited La Pine in 1988 when helping a friend drive up a truck

and trailer. “I had such a good time that my wife didn’t think I was ever coming home.” The couple – attracted by the change in climates throughout the year, as well as the area’s hunting and fishing – relocated here from Southern California in 1999. “We had been looking for a small town, with good, friendly people – characteristics that described La Pine then, and which describe it now.” First becoming involved with St. Vincent through his church, Moore “got volunteered to serve on the board.” He then agreed to take on the job of CEO, “thinking I would stay in the position for a year. It’s going on nine years now.” (Moore previously worked in management for General Telephone, now Verizon, and “had 440 people working for me. I traveled extensively to oversee the conversion to digital telephone technology – which was a big step in the communications industry.”) Under Moore’s leadership, St. Vincent de Paul “has grown financially, as well as in size.

We currently have six volunteers and 14 paid employees – one of whom, Heather Loomis, was recently promoted to manager. All of them live in La Pine, so the money goes right back into the community.” Donations to the thrift store support the nonprofit’s social services component. “Under the direction of Jamie Smith, the only paid employee, it is run 99 percent by volunteers,” asserted Moore. “Its services include providing food, showers, propane, gasoline (to help people look for work), and even a dental van.” Volunteers have always been a mainstay of the organization. “When the land and the building (which had been a carpet store) were purchased 7-8 years ago, the facility was renovated in only two months with the help of 75 volunteers,” he recalled. Moore noted that “we really don’t blow our own horn, and prefer to stay low key. Our employees are very motivated – and we all do the best we can to serve the community.”

Students Receive Back-to-School Support

from Sunriver Women's Club By Laura Dickinson, Contributing Writer School is in full swing with students receiving a little extra help from the Sunriver Women’s Club. In October the Assistance League of Bend will take over 250 kids from La Pine and Sunriver schools to Walmart to select school clothes—everything from underwear to coats. A grant from the SRWC to the program funds 40 kids to acquire new clothes. For the second year, La Pine Parks and Recreation is running the after school program at Three Rivers School. Over 30 students participate in arts, crafts, science projects, cultural activities and games. The program is expanding to middle schoolers with the help of a grant from the SRWC that provides basic supplies for the middle school program.

Two high school graduates began college due to a scholarship from the Sunriver Christian Fellowship Partners in Education Program. Both recipients participated in assorted extracurricular activities, including volunteering as teen leaders in a sixth grade program at Three Rivers School where they previously attended. The scholarships were significantly underwritten by a SRWC grant. Sunriver Women’s Club provides assistance for many programs in south Deschutes County. These grants are focused on students in the area and back to school needs. For more information visit the SRWC website at www.

A Summer Time Trip for Ms. Phinney This summer Ms. Robbi Phinney, principal at La Pine Middle School these last 4 years, was part of a group of Oregon teachers who were selected to travel to Rwanda (Central/Eastern Africa) to train teachers. They worked with teachers in a refugee camp housing 18 thousand people. While there they found education a great challenge. The teachers are faced with 70 children per class and little or no school supplies. One area that the group from Oregon trained the Rwanda teachers on was cooperative learning, an instructional strategy in which small groups of students work together on a common task. They also provided information to help decrease bullying and social isolation. As an added opportunity, the Oregon group got to go on a safari, visit local markets and mingle with the locals in their homes, where they found that most of those they visited spoke English.

Water/Wastewater System Improvements & Expansion Open House on October 24

By Staff Writer

The latest in a series of open houses to discuss improvements and expansion of La Pine’s water and wastewater system is being held on Tuesday, October 24, 5:30 – 7 p.m., at the Senior Center (16450 Victory Way). A presentation by city officials will be followed by a question & answer session. According to City Manager Cory Misley, the $25 million project will add

wells and water lines, and extend the existing water and wastewater systems. “It will extend to neighborhoods that still run on wells and septic systems that were in place before La Pine was incorporated as a city in 2007. It will add almost a third to the number of existing utility customers. These infrastructure improvements are a necessary step as La Pine’s population grows.”

A first-ever La Pine-based international competition pits 15 South African wrestlers against 25 participants from numerous area schools – both male and female from a variety of weight classes. A welcoming dinner on October 4 features martial arts demonstrations by Josie, Boede and Tyson Gibson, who hold 24 national and eight world champion titles, and have garnered more than 200 first-, second- and thirdplace finishes, during their five-year careers. Months of preparations to bring international wrestlers to La Pine culminate with the arrival of 15 South African teammates on October 4, and a welcoming dinner being held at the Community Center from 3 – 6 p.m. According to organizer and USA Wrestling coach Dave Kerr, the $10/ plate fundraiser benefits both this firstever competition and the next one scheduled for March 2018, this time with Russian teams and their Central Oregon counterparts. Kerr explained that “all the host families have been lined up and are ready to go, and we’ve set up an agenda for sightseeing excursions. Now we’re focusing our energies on practicing for the matches, which take place on Saturday, October 7, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at La Pine High School.” (Admission is $2 per person, $5 per family.)

“Co-organizer Sherry Jentzsch is doing a spectacular job in this regard,” praised Kerr. “She’s the one holding me accountable, and making sure I do what I say I will. Thanks also go to Councilwoman Connie Briese, Vicki and Ken Mulenex, and a number of other volunteers who are really making this easy for us.” Kerr emphasized that “this is all about good will, and showing visitors who we are, what we stand for, and the value we have to offer. We hope the public will show up in force to support La Pine, and to support its kids. “I’m confident that this event will continue to grow, and become better and better over time. We’re already exploring possibilities with other teams and places – including Japan, Germany, Switzerland and Bulgaria. It’s a positive learning experience for everyone involved.”

Holly Smith, Administrative Assistant

Most recently serving as Committee Assistant for the Legislative Policy and Research Team in Salem, Holly Smith previously worked in the legal field in private practice, with the State of Oregon’s Appellate Division, and in the Polk County District Attorney’s office. “It was eye-opening to see how the justice system worked,” she said. Familiar with La Pine after several years of family visits, Smith and her husband were drawn to its “small-town feel, where people value a slower pace and family time.” Equally important was the quality of the local schools for their two sons, ages 9 and 11. Almost despairing after a fruitless job search, Smith happened to look at

the City of La Pine website, just after her soon-to-be-position had been posted. “I love it here,” she enthused, “and feel super fortunate.”

“You can only cut a tree once, but you can flush a toilet multiple times,” said Reed Campbell in explaining how he readily switched sawdust for sewers after four years in the logging industry. “I ran equipment such as skidders, strokers and hot saws, but left that behind when offered a job by Oregon Water Wonderland in Sunriver” (where he spent the next 18 months). As the newest employee in the Public Works Department, Campbell praises Jake Obrist as “easy to work with,” and describes his other colleagues in city government as “great.” Campbell was born and raised in La Pine, and graduated from La Pine High School.

“One-on-One Customer Service Is the Best Way to Operate” By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer

Matt Toepfer, owner of Green Life Gardening and High Desert Botanicals, moved to La Pine in 2004 with his wife Jill (lead medical assistant at the La Pine Community Health Center) and two daughters, Lily and Kiah. He makes a point of “always talking with the mayor, the city council, the Chamber of Commerce, and other business owners. As an entrepreneur, resident and parent, I want to know what’s going on in the schools and in the town.”

“As a business owner in a small town, I’m able to have much more personal relationships with people – rather than simply customer interactions. We’ve established a base where people can come and talk about their issues. They have a feeling of trust that has built up over a decade.” Matt Toepfer, looking back over the years since he opened Green Life Gardening (2008) and High Desert Botanicals (2015), characterizes his endeavors as “mom-and-pop operations, where we can offer oneon-one customer service. That’s the best way to operate, especially with retail.” His path to business success has been admittedly up and down. “Although we have had years in the negative, we kept trying to push through. Now I only have one day off a week to hang out at home and do yardwork,” he admitted. Raised in Coos Bay, Toepfer moved with his family to La Pine in 2004 – drawn to the area’s outdoor activities such as winter sports on Mount Bachelor, camping, fishing, and exploring the Cascades. Four years and an Associate

Degree in Business from COCC later, he “took the reins and decided to open a small shop, Green Life Gardening. The goal was to give people a different understanding of what they could grow – both indoors and outdoors – and address the need for getting back to our roots.” When Oregon’s ballot measure 91 (which legalized the recreational use of marijuana) passed in 2014, Toepfer decided to expand his retail operations by opening a dispensary – High Desert Botanicals – next door. “In addition to basics such as putting up walls, I needed to work with the city in terms of its legal requirements and permit process,” he said. “Although it was a battle in the beginning, officials gradually got to know me as a respectful local entrepreneur, and now even ask for my input on cannabis-related issues. A lot of cannabis information is very new, and having been part of the industry for almost 18 years, I can serve as a resource. “People are starting to open their eyes more, especially those age 55+, and are curious,” continued Toepfer. “Part of the older generation wants to get off pills and avoid their side effects and negative interactions with each other. Cannabis offers a more holistic approach.” As he explains, “THC is the chemical ingredient in marijuana

that gets users high. Another compound, Cannabidiol CBD, is nonpsychoactive and has been shown to have a wide range of medical benefits. These include reducing nausea and vomiting, combatting psychosis and inflammatory disorders, and relieving insomnia, anxiety and depression. We have a lot of great products, as well as a knowledgeable staff that can help people better understand the healing benefits of this natural alternative.” Toepfer is as passionate about La Pine as he is about his businesses. “I’m always talking with the mayor, the city council, the Chamber of Commerce, and other business owners. As an entrepreneur, resident and parent, I want to know what’s going on in the schools and in the town.” He also places a high priority on community involvement – “both sponsorships and participating in local events, which includes annual 4th of July festivities in our parking lot.” While Toepfer has witnessed tangible changes since moving here 13 years ago – “I’d estimate that traffic has at least quadrupled” – he is adamant that factors determining La Pine’s growth and viability are immutable. “There has to be fair and competitive shopping options,” he asserted. “It’s the only way to keep people spending more money locally, and help the town prosper.”

ODOT Scraps Wickiup Overpass

continued from front page

Department of Transportation is preparing to abandon an attempt to build an overpass on U.S. Highway 97 in La Pine, after having spent $12.4 million of the $17 million allocated for the project.” ODOT officials announced the news to a standing-room-only audience in La Pine’s City Hall. They also explained the reason for rapidly-sinking soils at the site, which had halted the project in May, and led geotechnical experts to conclude the overpass cannot be completed safely. Investigations by ODOT and an outside consulting firm (which included removing soil samples from as deep as 280 feet below the surface) revealed the contents of an ancient lake, thought to have been formed when lava flows from KTVZ reporter Jessie Foster reveals the nearby Newberry Volcano dammed what audience members inside City the Deschutes River. At its deep base, Hall just learned: ODOT has decided under layers of volcanic ash, pumice, to abandon the $17 million Wickiup sand and silt deposits, experts found Junction overpass project, due to rapidly intact silica skeletons from microscopic sinking soils at the bottom of an ancient algae that lived in the lake and sank, lake bed below the site that compromised forming a thick bed on the lake bottom its safety. Mayor Dennis Scott urged thousands of years ago. ODOT to explore other options, saying Under the weight of the project that “we really have to put this project (250,000 cubic yards of soil), the forward, as it affects La Pine’s economic resultant fracturing and compressing development.” of the algae caused unpredictable settlement. “The overpass itself sunk See ODOT Scraps page 20

Member Rate Adjustment Necessary to Meet Increased Costs

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) put forward an average power rate increase of 5.4 percent and an average transmission rate decrease of 0.7 percent which will go into effect October 1, 2017. The new BPA rates will add more than $600,000 to Midstate Electric Cooperative’s cost of power. Management conducted a revenue requirements study to determine what the rates will need to be to cover the cost of power and other inflationary costs to operate the co-op. The study determined that it is necessary to do an overall rate adjustment of approximately 2.5 percent effective with the November 1 billing. Each member’s actual percentage of increase will vary from month to month depending on kWh consumption. The effect on the average residential member, using 1,219 kWhs, is an additional $2.73 per month. MEC understands that rate increases are never welcome. The co-op does offer several programs to assist you in keeping the impact of the rate increase as minimal as possible. These programs include free energy audits, conservation tips and rebates, budget billing, prompt payment discount and account monitoring. Call 541-536-2126 for additional information on these programs. Members will receive more detailed information on the new rate structure by mail in mid-October.

History cont from front page several months to lay the groundwork for La Pine’s first public park. They were able to obtain a lease on 10.46 acres of BLM land, 1½ miles up Finley Butte Road, and are currently clearing stumps and brush to make the park more of a reality. WHOSE PARK? Dick Rasmussen, the park chairman for the Lions, explained that the BLM lease was dependent upon the progress La Pine residents will make in turning an old timber homestead into a family pleasure ground. If sufficient progress is made upon the proposed plan, the park will be La Pine’s own through a purchase agreement by Deschutes County. What’s the catch, you ask? The catch, Rasmussen explains, is that you realize the creation of the park must be a community effort. This is not Deschutes County’s project, it is our own; if we want it, we are going to have to work for it. A fifteen-year projection estimates the total cost at $285,000. This sounds expensive until you realize that in most towns, this would come out of property taxes or city assessments. In La Pine, however, we have most everything we need from the voluntary efforts of ourselves.

This reporter, for one, wants to see his projected son (or daughter), fifteen years from now, playing shortstop or first base on La Pine’s championship Little League team. I want them to be able to point to a spot over the centerfield fence and say “I’m going to hit this to where my pa helped pull out a stump.” Silly, perhaps; but enough to tickle me pink. It has begun already. We already have a well donated by Mike’s Well Drilling and the pumps and pressure tanks have been given to us by Tokstad Plumbing Supply. This is a heckava town for a future shortstop or first baseman. The La Pine Lion’s Club have set it up for us and the next move has to be ours.

Sunriver Angler’s Fly Tying Corner

October 2017

By Phil Fischer, Contributing Writer

The Soft Hackle October Caddis The Soft Hackle October Caddis is a fly I learned many years ago during a very late-night fly tying jam with Andy Puyans, my fly tying mentor. I first used this pattern for the notoriously finicky trout in California’s Hat Creek. I was on a steep fly fishing learning curve in those days and this pattern helped me solve the mystery to catch several nice trout that day. The natural October Caddis is an honest size 8-10. It hatches during its namesake month, but is available as larvae throughout the season. It is a caddis that builds a case and spends most of its life on the bottom of rivers inside its case. However, it is also prone to behavioral drifts when it leaves its case and drifts with the current until it builds a new and larger case. It is especially susceptible to feeding trout during these times, which occur usually later afternoon during June and July. But I have found a drifted Soft Hackle pattern can work well at any time of year; it is a large meal for the trout. The original pattern used slightly different materials, as I have made updates using a variety of materials not available back then. But the main concept is still the same. I have used a dubbing for the abdomen that has elements of flash and pearlescent flash ribbing that can give an impression of air bubbles in the natural. Also, I have added CDC to the underwing of this pattern to capture air bubbles, much like the natural. In the example, I tie this with a tungsten bead and a few wraps of lead wire to get the pattern down quickly. But I also fish it lightly weighted, depending on the depth of water I am fishing. Natural October Caddis Adult I like this pattern for both trout and steelhead. I’ve fished it on many trout rivers, such as the McCloud and Upper Sacramento in Northern California. But also for

October Caddis Natural

October Caddis Steelhead on the Trinity and Lower Deschutes. I use two primary techniques: Tight-line nymphing, or casting and drifting the fly dead drifted under an indicator. Both methods work. But I also pick up quite a few fish by swinging the fly at the tail end of the drift. I have always remembered those lessons the trout on Hat Creek taught me and still go back to this pattern every Fall as October Caddis time approaches.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument’s Seven Wonders

You are probably aware that Oregon has its very own Seven Wonders, but did you know right outside your backdoor we have another Seven Wonders, the Seven Wonders of the Newberry Volcanic National Monument. FYI- Did you know that the Newberry Volcano was named after John Strong Newberry. In 1855, he explored central Oregon for the Pacific Railroad Surveys. Now, let’s go exploring. Paulina Peak We started out by heading up to Paulina Peak and once there we were at an elevation of 7984ft. Standing on the highest point of the Newberry Volcano, on the rim of the Newberry Crater itself was awe-inspiring. Although smoke from our fires was still eminent, the view was still incredible. From here you are delighted with views of Paulina Lake, East Lake, the Obsidian Flow, as well as, mountains every direction you look, as far as you can see. On a clear day from Paulina Peak Mount Adams in Washington and Mount Shasta in California are both visible, not to mention from here you have the best view of the Newberry Caldera. Newberry Caldera I’m sure a lot of people stand up on that volcanic rim enjoying the vast endless beauty that surrounds them, but once you are aware of exactly what you are witnessing, the experience changes a bit. This is the Cascades largest volcano, actually the Newberry Volcano is a massive shield volcano, which are the biggest volcanos on earth. It is not like a stratovolcano like Mt. Rainer or Mt. Hood with its conical shape, shield volcanos are named for their low profile, resembling a warriors shield lying on the ground, with gently sloping sides that are made from multiple fluid lava flows. This particular one is roughly the size of Rhode Island, and is still very seismically and geothermally active. Obsidian Flow A little further east is the Big Obsidian Flow which is Oregon’s youngest lava flow, created by the last eruption of the Newberry Volcano. Here there is a one-mile interpretive trail that takes you up into the

Paulina Creek Falls pumice and obsidian (black glass). The views from this trail are pretty impressive as well. Paulina Creek Falls We then made our way to Paulina Creek Falls. Upon stepping out of your vehicle you can already hear the thunderous roar of these 80 ft double falls. Within a short walk is a platform that sits the height of the falls, if you venture down to the left there is a .25 mile razor back that takes you down to the base. Make sure you experience the falls from this vantage point, it is just spectacular. Lava Cast Forest Just a short drive toward Bend, you will find the turnoff for the Lava Cast Forest. This is a mile loop paved interpretative trail that leads you through a once thriving forest that has been completely wiped out by a lava flow. What is so interesting

Why Do Leaves Change Colors? transforming carbon dioxide and water to carbohydrates, such as sugars and starch. Along with the green pigment are yellow to orange pigments, carotenes and xanthophyll pigments which, for example, give the orange to a carrot. For most of the year these colors are masked by great amounts of green coloring. But in the fall, because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, the leaves stop their food making process. The chlorophyll breaks down, the green color disappears, and

By Linda Stephenson, Contributing Writer

Why do we experience a color change in leaves? This may be more than you really want to know but I find it very interesting. During the spring and summer the leaves have served as factories where most of the foods necessary for the tree’s growth are manufactured. This food making process takes place in the leaf in numerous cells containing chlorophyll, which gives the leaf its green color. This chemical absorbs from sunlight the energy that is used in

“Honey-Do’s” Piling Up?

the yellow to orange colors become visible and give the leaves part of their fall splendor. The autumn foliage of some trees only display yellow colors. Others, like many oaks, display mostly browns. All these colors are due to the mixing of varying amounts of the chlorophyll residue and other pigments in the leaf during the fall season. In our area weather has a big effect on the color intensity. Temperature, light, and water supply have an influence on the degree and the duration of fall color. Low temperatures above freezing will favor anthocyanin formation producing bright reds in maples. However, especially in our area, frost will weaken the brilliant red color. Rainy and/or overcast days tend to increase the intensity of fall colors. That is why the colors are intense as you drive over the mountain passes this time of year, they have been receiving lots of misty and rainy days. Here, at this time of year, we usually receive cold windy days, causing the leaves to dry quickly and fall off before they have a chance to go through the color changing process slowly. Another affect I want you to notice as you are driving, and this is really

interesting, many of the trees, especially Aspens, are turning golden on one side while the other side remains a bit greener. Take note of the side that is turning golden sooner. It will usually be the side that gets the cooler winds. You will also notice that if you go into one of the mall parking lots that the trees under the big lights are not turning as fast as the ones out away from the light. This also has to do with the chlorophyll break down. With this extra light the trees don’t realize the length of daylight is shorter. They change later due to the drop in temperature. A light attached to your house or shop that comes on at dusk automatically will also cause this affect.

Fall Bulbs - Now is the Time to Plant By Linda Stephenson, Contributing Writer

What is the difference between a daffodil and a narcissus? Narcissus is the Latin, botanical name and daffodil is the common English name and the two terms are interchangeable. When purchasing your bulbs purchase from a reputable dealer. A good bulb has a flower in it when it is sold for fall planting. Giveaway bulbs, unless from a trusted source, are of dubious value. Bargain bulbs are NOT always bargains. Never buy or plant a soft daffodil bulb, because a soft bulb usually means basal rot or other disease. Daffodils, tulips, grape hyacinths and crocus do best in full sun. They grow well in damp soils from the time they are planted until they finish growing in the late spring. However the soil must drain well. One of the mistakes gardeners make here on the high desert is that when it gets cool in the fall they quit watering. The ground will dry out from the winds and lack of moisture, thus not making for a good flower the following

spring. Or, in the spring when it is still cool and there is a lack of spring moisture bulbs do not get watered. Make sure that your bulbs stay moist, but not soaked. During the soil preparation, a fertilizer high in bone meal (second number on the label), should be worked in. Be sure the fertilizer does not come in direct contact with the bulbs. You can use bulb food or just bone meal. Fall bulbs should be planted any time after our first freeze. Most root growth is done in the fall and early winter. Rule of thumb is to plant bulbs to a depth three times the size of the bulb. It is not uncommon for bulbs to fail to flower or give small blooms the first year in your garden…they are busy adapting to your soil, climate and your care. With the proper fertilizing each year, by the second season they should supply you with a gorgeous display of lovely blooms.

“We’re in a Position to Win – And Should Be Proud of That” By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer

Wanted: A city with more than a million people that is close to good universities and a major airport; a stable and business-friendly environment; and a location able to attract and retain technical employees. Bids are due by October 19. As Amazon scouts North American cities for a second company headquarters, where it plans to hire as many as 50,000 full-time workers, the world’s largest online retailer is very specific in its requirements. And Ryan Culp, Economic Development Director for the Sunriver/ La Pine Area, understands exactly what is involved in the process. In his previous position in Mississippi, Ryan helped recruit nearly 1,000 jobs and $220 million in private investment to the state – in 2016 alone. As a Senior Project Manager for the Mississippi Development Authority, Culp witnessed another example of a wide-ranging search. “Continental Tire considered multiple countries and every single county in the U.S. for a new manufacturing facility. Requirements included 1,000 acres ready for development, and availability of a large, skilled workforce. The company eventually chose an unincorporated area outside Jackson, Mississippi for this $1.4 billion project that will employ 2,400 people.” Whatever the scale of the company, Culp asserts that the principles underlying successful economic development efforts are the same. “You have to instill confidence that you can meet their needs – both present and future, and minimize their risk of time and money. Anything that impacts the bottom line is relevant.” Culp breaks down economic development into three primary areas: recruitment of new industry, retention & expansion of existing businesses, and entrepreneurial development. “Each of these areas is directly dependent upon coordination between elected officials, business and community leaders,” he asserted. “That’s why my first priority here was to ‘meet the players,’

Ryan Culp (right), Economic Development Director for the Sunriver/La Pine area, shown with Andy Meeuwsen of Countrywide Financial, told attendees at the 2nd Annual Sunriver/La Pine Economic Development luncheon that “we have a lot of momentum and a lot to celebrate in South County.

Building trust with them is essential to being able to do my job. “Here’s why. You need to be a resource and an asset to a business at all steps of the development process,” explained Culp. “Whether it’s helping ensure that permitting goes quickly, guiding them on site selection, project financing or workforce development, or even solving a problem with a water bill. “Our common goal is to enhance the See Economic Development page 15

we felt it was time to make a concerted effort in that direction,” noted Chad Carpenter, Chair of the South Deschutes County Partnership for Adult Education. “COCC had never done anything like this before.” “We had always talked about having a building here in La Pine, but realized that we can’t possibly offer all the classes locally that students would need,” added Vikki Ricks, COCC Board Chair. “The students want to go on campus, so the See COCC Pilot Project page 19

reputations of La Pine and Sunriver as easy, cost-effective and friendly places to do business.” Culp pointed to several recent successes in “growing” the local economy. In Sunriver: Sunriver Brewing’s operational expansion; the expansion and remodeling of the Camp Abbot Trading Company facility; and Cascade Wellness Technologies (CWT), a medical device manufacturer. In La Pine: the investments of Quicksilver Contracting Company; Mid-Oregon Credit Union; St. Charles

Health System; Grocery Outlet & Dollar Store; and Gordy’s Truck Stop. “One of the area’s greatest assets is La Pine’s 300-acre industrial and business park,” asserted Culp. “Sewer, water and power are already curbside; land costs are the lowest in Deschutes County; and no place in Central Oregon has cheaper industrial power rates. “South County has all the assets in place to be a real contender for major industrial projects,” he emphasized. “We’re in a position to win – and should be proud of that.”

“You really can’t go wrong with any classes you take at COCC. “It’s a great place for education whether it’s continued education in your career path or for general college courses.

I have taken classes to help support me in my current role as I continue to grow. There are a lot of opportunities within the college and the faculty members are invested in the students.”


COCC is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution.

Dutch Oven Cooking

By Ann Gawith, Contributing Writer Brrrrr….it’s cold … yay! Not your reaction? Too bad! In my house the change in the weather is cause to celebrate as it means getting to cook in our Dutch Ovens on the woodstove! We start craving those wonderful slow cooked dishes that are ignored during the summer grilling season. Soups, stews, pot roasts, beans … yum. One of our particular favorites is the easiest recipe on the planet … Country Style Ribs with Sauerkraut.

Country Style Ribs with Sauerkraut Serves 2 to 4 depending on appetite and size of ribs of course. We usually eat 1 rib each … the leftovers are fantastic!

You will need:

10” cast iron Dutch Oven (DO) (perfect for 4 ribs) – or similar dish that will withstand being on top of your woodstove. If your DO (or other dish) does not have legs you will need a trivet that raises the dish about 1 ½ inches above the stove top. Of course you can also cook this in your regular oven … but there is just something special about food cooked in a DO you know.


4 boneless country style pork ribs 1 large jar of your favorite sauerkraut Salt & Pepper Oil for browning


Heat your DO on the stove top using high heat to start and turn it down to medium high when hot enough for proper searing & browning. Pour in a tablespoon or so of oil (I always use olive oil) Put the ribs in the hot pan and brown on all sides. Pour the whole jar of sauerkraut on top of the browned ribs. (The juice in the sauerkraut is plenty of moisture for proper braising). Place the lid on the pot and put it on the wood stove. Easy Peasy … Of course this is not an exact science so I usually give about 2 hours to be cooked properly. The wood stove heat naturally fluctuates so if you notice no bubbling sound for an extended period of time you might want to throw on a piece of wood. On the other hand, if the pot is boiling away excessively you might want to shut it down for a short period. Your ears and nose are your friends when cooking in a Dutch Oven. You can hear the gentle simmer. Your nose will tell you if the liquid has boiled away and the dish is starting to get too brown. You don’t want to be constantly lifting the lid because too much heat is lost every time (the general rule is you lose 50 degrees every time you lift the lid). You’ll get the

hang of it. Don’t be afraid to take the pot off the stove if it gets done sooner than you wanted to serve dinner … it will stay warm in the cast iron for quite a long time, or pop it in a warm oven to keep. If you are using a regular oven, cook for approximately 1 ½ hours at 350 degrees. Additions: You can have fun with this dish … add some sliced apples on top of the sauerkraut or add some thick sliced onions under the ribs after they are browned. Something green as a side dish makes a pretty plate – we rarely make potatoes or noodles anymore in our house, but they are great too of course if your family loves them!

Editors Note: Ann & Gerald Gawith are accomplished Dutch Oven cooks and at one time had a Dutch Oven Catering company called “Grub Masters”. You may have tasted their award winning dishes at the Frontier Days Prairie Challenge Dutch Oven Competition during the years it was in existence, or at the High Desert Rhubarb Festival; or at a Dutch Oven Gathering (DOG) of the Central Oregon Dutch Oven Society of which they were founding members. More of their Dutch Oven recipes will be presented monthly during these “wood stove” cooking months.

In this column, we share what local Rotarians, your La Pine friends and neighbors, are doing to help South Deschutes County.

“Service Above Self” Drives Local Rotarians To Volunteer Everywhere By Rotary Club of Sunriver-La Pine, Contributing Writer

“Service Above Self” is Rotary’s motto. But for Sunriver-La Pine Rotary members it is more of a call to action, than a catch phrase. Here are just a few of the projects that your local club is involved in around the world. Photo right: Local Sunriver-La Pine Rotarian and President Elect Cheri Martinen brought Rotary’s “Service Above Self” volunteering spirit to the world-famous Burning Man event in September.

Rotarian Volunteers at Burning Man

Burning Man is an annual event that attracts 70,000 people to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary community dedicated to art, self-expression, self-reliance, and no trace living. Local Rotarian and President Elect Cheri Martinen has attended the event for the past nine years, but this year something was different. She decided to bring her “service above self” spirit with her and volunteer at this world-renowned event. “I spent twelve hours working the gate and another six helping participants exit the city,” explains Cheri. “I was in charge

of scanning tickets, vehicle passes, and enforcing the rules on banned items, such as, smuggled people, pets, plants, drones, fireworks, firearms, and anything that would be MOOP (Matter Out of Place). The work was long and hard. The wind and dust are part of the job, but this year the temperature was well over 110 degrees, and there is little to no shade. At the end of each shift I was tired and dirty, but had a smile on my face. All of the work was worth it.” Cheri would like to give a shout out to all the people who volunteer their time sometimes for over a month to help build and run this amazing event.

Sunriver Books and Music Book Reviews & Events By Deon Stonehouse

Saturday October 14 at 5:00 PM Jane Kirkpatrick will give a presentation on her latest historical novel, All She Left Behind. Jane Kirkpatrick has many books telling of strong women who contributed to history in meaningful ways, stories that would otherwise be lost.  

All She Left Behind begins with Jennie Pickett as a young wife and mother in the 1870’s who harbors an intense interest in the natural world. She collects herbs, putting them to good use in treating the ailments of family, friends, and neighbors. There is a lovely passage about Jennie and her toddler son observing a fox along a tributary of the Willamette River. Her dream is to become a doctor, but she realizes other

responsibilities have claimed her and the dream is put aside. Not all is happy in this young mother’s life. Her family lives in the home of her sister; her brother in law is her husband’s supervisor at the Oregon State Prison. That is a lot of closeness for two families in a small house with young children. Her brother in law has a penchant for booze and unsavory pursuits that her husband, Charles, also starts to indulge. Charles wants to be a big man; he will never achieve that status. Instead he loses his job and goes in debt to a wealthy local man heavily involved in community affairs. When Charles abandons his obligations, Jennie cannot turn her back on the debt owed. She works tending the man’s ailing wife. The couple are older than Jennie, their caring and affection touch her deeply. When the woman dies, the friendship that developed turns to something deeper with the widower, despite the difference in age. Through the caring and support of this man, Jennie will struggle to achieve her dreams. Oregon history is woven through the story, as well as the struggle for women to become physicians in that era. Author events are free and we will have refreshments and drawings for prizes. Please call 541-593-2525, e-mail or stop by Sunriver Books & Music to sign up to attend.  More information can be found at

Volunteers Clean Up Highway 97

Closer to home, under the direction of the club’s Service Project Director, Janice Jost, a team of Rotarians cleaned up trash along Highway 97 between the Cottonwood and Sunriver exits on Saturday, September 30th. This has been an ongoing service project since the club joined Oregon’s Adopt a Highway program in 2015.

Club Raises Funds for Local Nonprofits

Since its founding twenty years ago, the club has raised more than $545,000 to support local nonprofits. Rotary is now accepting grant requests for 2017 from nonprofits that serve South Deschutes County. The deadline is October 31, 2017. Please contact Rotarian Dennis Smeage at or

Eliminating Polio Is… So Close

pet of the Month for October Baby is a sweet 9-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier. She was part of the transport of adoptable shelter dogs from San Antonio, Texas, who were brought to Central Oregon to make room for strays displaced from Hurricane Harvey. Baby is now looking for her forever home! This little lady did well during her behavior test. As with any adoption we would recommend doing a doggie

meet and greet here at HSCO. That’s to ensure that Baby will get along with you before going home together. Baby would love nothing more than to go to a home where she will get all the love and attention she deserves


CeCe and Buddy, Miniature Dachshunds

Cynthia Anderson of La Pine has had CeCe for 9 years. While it has been a wonderful partnership she also, now, has Buddy! Cynthia’s brother, who lives in Mitchell, rescued Buddy about 1 ½ months ago. He knew that Buddy would make a great partner for CeCe. In the four weeks that Cynthia has had Buddy, that has proved to be the case, because Buddy and CeCe are getting along well. When Buddy gets outside, he heads straight for the car and looks around to see if they are going somewhere. With CeCe, her favorite thing to do is mosey around the yard and smell everything. However, when CeCe is hungry, she’ll bark in a certain way that Cynthia knows what the barking is for.

Our partners are all really excited, and that is the marker for success.” Noted Vikki Ricks: “The easier we can make it for graduates to access options after high school, the more likely others will say ‘we can do that!’

Curiosity, etc. – How Do You Get an Egg Inside a Bottle? By Helen Woods, Staff Writer

Back in the “old days,” before TV and internet people had to find ways to entertain themselves and others. Even before electricity, during cold winter nights, people had to have a way to fight off “cabin fever”. They often spent that time with activities called “parlor tricks.” A lot of these were card tricks, and often called, magic! The magic tricks were often just a slight-of-hand, like hiding a penny behind their ear or in a shirt collar and then making a big deal out of pulling it out of thin air. Voila! Magic! Many of the parlor tricks were based on science, however, and these were often more impressive than the conventional slight-of-hand tricks. An old standby was the “Egg in a Bottle” trick. Parlor

performers would have an empty, glass, milk bottle and a good supply of hard boiled, peeled eggs on a table. They would ask the audience how to get the egg inside the bottle, complete and whole. Eventually, the performer would get a piece of paper, light it with a match, drop it into the bottle and set the peeled egg over the bottle mouth and, the egg slipped right into the bottle! The picture ON THE RIGHT shows how to do this. Since glass milk bottles are a rarity, look around for a bottle that the egg will set atop of easily. Plastic bottles may not work well because their mouth is usually uneven and can tear the egg. Try rubbing a little bit of cooking oil inside the lip of the bottle to reduce friction.

How it works:

The egg slightly seals the top of the bottle. The heat generated by the burning paper heats the air, causing it to expand. The egg allows some of the air to escape. When the fire goes out, the air in the bottle begins to contract. The egg seals the opening, not allowing air to enter. The egg

is sucked in, instead! The challenge! How do you get the egg out in one piece? You can send your solutions via email to me at info@ Check the “Curiosity, etc.”. column next month for a list of the suggested solutions.

six inches over the winter,” said ODOT district manager Bob Bryant, “with portions of the embankments sinking as much as 18 inches.” The cause of the unusual settlement was revealed only through advanced techniques such as the use of a scanning electron microscope and x-ray diffraction. “I’ve been building bridges for 30 years,” noted Bryant, “and have never encountered similar subterranean deposits.” ODOT will now explore “what happens next,” including further investigation of site conditions, evaluating options to salvage project materials, and repurposing the original funds. It will also examine other alternatives to achieve the original goals of the project, such as constructing a similar overpass near the one that was 80 percent completed.

Thomas Giles, PA-C was raised in Wapato, WA and graduated from Yakima Valley Community College then attended Boise State University to receive a degree in Radiologic Science. After working as an x-ray technologist in Boise, Idaho for a few years he set his path to become a Physician Assistant. Thomas graduated from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professionals in Provo, Utah in August, 2017 as a Physician Assistant. Thomas is excited to live and work in La Pine and enjoys spending time outdoors with his family.

Growing one listener at a time, Milkman and the JAM attempt to bring you the Underground and New Wave 80’s, the College Radio 90’s, Current Alternative, Club and Dubstep hits, and, most importantly, those newest artists and their songs before they are destroyed by overplayed Pandora playlists and major label radio station conglomerates.

EMBRACING OREGON cont from page 11 here besides the scenery, are the cylindrical holes all along the trail. These holes are where ancient trees once stood, lava engulfed, lava hardened and the trees burned-out. Lava River Cave A must visit is the Lava River Cave. This natural phenomenon, discovered in 1889, created by one of many Newberry Volcano eruptions, it is the longest un-collapsed lava tube in Oregon. Keep in mind this hike is a two mile loop, one mile in one mile back, on the same path. Think about this, in some sections this cave, formed by molten lava, is 50 ft. across and 58 ft. high. Other cave features include a sand garden, several pools and a section of double tubes. Year round this cave remains 42 degrees, so dress appropriately.

Lava Butte Lastly, our seventh wonder is Lava Butte. 509 ft. in height, capped by a 150 ft. crater, it is one of the over 400 pyroclastic cone volcanoes formed by the Newberry Volcano. On the summit stands one of the busiest fire lookouts in the Pacific Northwest. There is also a .25 mile rim trail that offers incredible views of the Cascades, the south end of Bend and all of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. What an incredible adventure filled with natural phenomenon’s, amazing geology, explored history and explorable history and embraced awareness. Oregon’s volcanic wonders are here for you to experience so what are you waiting for? For more stories by Kelley Hall visit
