La Pine Pioneers: Carol Brewer,

Volume 16 Issue 8

General Store Proprietress

Shown here around 1941, the La Pine Hiway Center served as the town’s general store, post office and community telephone booth – dispensing such necessities as gasoline, food, sporting goods and even horseshoe nails. The original structure, built in 1896, was moved twice before coming to its resting place at 51425 Highway 97 – the final time using winching and a brown horse. It now houses Homestead Quilts & Gallery, and Norma’s Red Rooster Restaurant.

By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer “When my husband and I moved here in 1970, some of the roads weren’t even named, and were referred to descriptively as “brown horses” or “fallen-down trees,” for example. There were no police, lawyers or banks. Nor were there eye doctors or medical facilities. Only about 30 people in the area had phones.” Looking back more than four decades, Carol Brewer recalls

that “in those years, there wasn’t much serious crime, and people always felt safe here. Everyone was having a hard time – the inequity didn’t exist between rich and poor – and you helped where you could. Everything was volunteerism. We all took care of each other.” Brewer, who will be 85 this month, grew up in central California during the Depression, “when See Pioneers page 5

August 5th, 2017 marks the 4th Annual Little Deschutes River “Un-official Youth Group Clean-up,” why is it un-official you ask? Because what started the first year as a “Scavenger Hunt” while floating The Little Deschutes River for fun quickly became a competition of which youth could collect the most or largest trash from the Little Deschutes during the course of the float trip. Mid summer the Crescent Creek Community Church Youth Group has their annual youth campout at the home of Larry & Connie Briese,

who live along the Little Deschutes River near the Burgess Bridge. Saturday, during the campout all the attendees head down river for the “Scavenger Hunt.” Throughout the previous three years, the youth have brought back mesh bags full of garbage. Some years the trash has been awful. Someone's Tupperware full rotten food that the stench followed the group down the river to the take out point. Other years the group pulled out a couple of old tires along with the dozen or so other bags See River Clean-Up page 4

U.S. Navy photo journalist Victor Jorgensen captured this photo of U.S. Navy sailor George Mendonsa, grabbing and kissing a stranger— Greta Zimmer Friedman in a white dress— on Victory over Japan Day (“V-J Day”) in New York City’s Times Square on August 14, 1945. He gave the picture the name: Kissing the War Goodbye by which it is still known. Japan’s devastating surprise aerial attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor on Oahu, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, capped a decade of deteriorating relations between Japan and the United States and led to an immediate U.S. declaration of war the following day. Japan’s ally Germany, led by Adolf Hitler, then declared war on the United States, turning the war raging in Europe into a truly global conflict. Over the next three years, superior technology and productivity allowed the Allies to wage an increasingly onesided war against Japan in the Pacific, inflicting enormous casualties while suffering relatively few. By 1945, in an attempt to break Japanese resistance before a land invasion became See VJ Day page 9

Deschutes County Road Director Describes La Pine as “Very Accommodating and Eager for Business” By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer “La Pine has a reputation of being very accommodating and eager for business – the last thing we want to do is get in their way,” asserted Chris Doty, Road Department Director for Deschutes County. “The city and county recently worked together to approve a set of plans for improvements to Huntington Road. These plans will facilitate the expansion of St. Charles into the community – by creating a turn lane in front of the planned facility. Basically, the existing two-lane road needs to be made into three lanes, along with sidewalk improvements. “Because the affected section of Huntington is within La Pine city limits, both the city and county are involved in the project,” he noted. “It has been a very harmonious process. And, as La Pine is growing, this type of effort will continue to take place – and we work very well together.” According to Doty, “St. Charles will schedule construction of the turn lane. We expect that to be within the next several months. “The county is also modernizing Huntington Road and Deer Run Lane north of LP – a $2.3 million project expected to run through the end of September,” he added. “This involves realigning the north and south intersections of Huntington with Riverview Drive and converting the 2.4-mile gravel section of Huntington between those sections into a paved, two-

lane stretch. The result: Huntington will become the through route for north/south traffic – and Riverview will go back to being a neighborhood road.” Doty provided a broader perspective. “What you’re seeing on Huntington is transition from a rural to a more urban thoroughfare. It’s in its ‘growing pain phase,’ where streets are modernized – and sidewalks are connected -- in a piecemeal fashion. Ultimately a project will need to be developed to fill in the gaps. It’s a pretty common development scenario.” To clarify the role of Deschutes County’s Road Department, Doty explained that “basically, we’re a rural maintenance agency. We maintain 900 miles of road, and chip seal about 100 miles of this annually (which entails the application of a special protective wearing surface to an existing pavement). In addition, at any given time, several projects are under construction, with others in the design phase.” Doty characterized the Bend area and Deschutes County as “growing like gangbusters.” To address the resultant construction and safety issues affecting both Deschutes and Oregon as a whole, he is ecstatic about the state transportation package signed by Gov. Kate Brown last month – about $5.3 billion for the next 10-year period. “We refer to it as a ‘generational funding package,’ because something this expansive only happens about once

in a generation,” he elaborated. (Sen. Lee Beyer, co-chairman of a special transportation committee that crafted the legislation, termed it “the most comprehensive transportation bill that the Oregon legislature has ever passed.”) At a local level, Doty said that “the allocated money will be invested primarily in capital projects such as new interchanges in Tumalo and Terrebone, where capacity and safety issues exist. “Some of the funds will also be earmarked for additional capital safety and capacity projects such as roundabouts, which have been shown to be much more effective in preventing accidents than converting stop signs to red lights. The newest of the existing 30+ roundabouts in the Bend area is located near Bend’s municipal airport on Powell Butte Highway and Neff Road, an intersection that previously had the highest crash rate in the county.” Doty, a civil engineer and native Central Oregonian, has been the Road Department Director for five years. The previous decade was spent working with the City of Redmond and, before that, with a local engineering firm. “But I’m very familiar with La Pine, as my sister, former La Pine Elementary School principal Tammy Doty, has lived here for 20+ years,” commented Doty. “She will soon be moving to Redmond to be closer to family. My daughters are happy at this decision – they call her the ‘best aunt ever.’”

Wickiup Overpass Project Suspended Until Further Notice By Staff Writer Work on the Wickiup Overpass Crossing project, which has been suspended since mid-May, won’t resume until further notice, according to ODOT spokesman Peter Murphy. “What we discovered is that the ramps leading

up to where the bridge would be are sinking more than is acceptable on a project like this.” ODOT has been working with the contractor to stabilize the ramps from further settlement. In addition, it has added a multidisciplinary geotechnical group to help

determine the next steps. The group, including ODOT engineers, will review the project, gather additional subsurface data (such as groundwater pressure and settlement measurements), and perform more testing and analysis. This analysis includes digging six test wells (each 250 feet deep), and monitoring the ground for the next several months. Explained Murphy: “We have to figure out the ‘why,’ which will then lead us to a lot of other places such as ‘when,’ ‘where,’ ‘what else’ and ‘how much’ is going to happen.” Dennis Scott, La Pine’s mayor, sought to put rumors to rest. “The main thing to know is that the project is not being dismantled – it will be moving ahead in some form once ODOT has completed its investigations.” He promised to provide further information as it is released.

4-H Club Combines Suds & Swine at Fundraising Carwash By Staff Writer







City Update

City of La Pine and La Pine Urban Renewal Agency FY 2017-18 Budgets: The Fiscal Year July 1st, 2017 through June 30th, 2018 budgets for the City and Urban Renewal Agency are available at La Pine City Hall for review. The budget includes all revenues and expenditures, and details upcoming priorities, projects, and plans.

Energetic members of the High Lakes Swine Club spent a recent Saturday enticing passersby to get their vehicles washed and, in doing so, help raise funds for the Fairbound 4-H group. According to its adult leaders, the group is so close-knit that families socialize even when pigs aren’t the center of attention, and go on camping trips together.

“We finally feel at home.”

Water and Wastewater Improvements and Expansion Projects: The City of La Pine is nearing the end of the funding phase of the project. Already, millions of dollars have been secured in grants to fund these critical infrastructure projects. To learn more about the projects and timelines, please contact or visit La Pine City Hall. The City intends to hold a third open house event in the fall to inform residents of the latest information on the projects. Noise Ordinance No. 2017-06: On July 12th, the La Pine City Council unanimously passed an ordinance to protect, preserve, promote health, safety, welfare, and the general peace and quiet of our City’s neighborhoods. This Ordinance will provide effective control and

will eliminate loud and discordant noise levels within the City. The City will work with Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office to implement and enforce this Ordinance. If you would like to learn more, please contact or visit La Pine City Hall. Traffic Advisory for the August 21st Solar Eclipse: There will be significant traffic congestion days before, during, and after the solar eclipse event on Monday, August 21st. Travel on US 97 will be difficult with the anticipation of hundreds of thousands of additional visitors to Central Oregon. We encourage you to be prepared for significant traffic delays traveling in and around La Pine and Central Oregon in general. City Reminder: Signage Signs are not allowed in the public Right of Way. City Public Works will remove signs found in the Right of Way. You can contact La Pine City Hall should you experience missing signs. Signs may be located on private property adjacent to the public Right of Way. Always consult with the property owner before placing such signs.

The Countdown: Hogs & Hares 4-H Club Prepares for Fair

amount of food being eaten and the amount of exercise they are given.” She added that “at Fair, pigs are judged twice – once in terms of their market viability (or selling appeal) using criteria such as body fat and balance. The second competition focuses on showmanship, where factors such as personality make a difference.” So in addition to monitoring weight gain, and prepping for Fair, Hogs & Hares members spend time refining their training techniques. 4-H veteran Trentyn Tennant, now in his fourth year, vividly recalls how “super nervewracking” that experience was for him the first time. “Others would tell me – but not actually demonstrate – how to get my pig trained the right way. I had to interpret what they meant, and ended up overthinking the process. The best example is that rather than just preparing to walk my pig around the arena, I taught it tricks. If I tapped the pig once with my stick, it turned a full 180 degrees. Two taps and it made a complete 360-degree circle. “Now that I understand what really happens at Fair, I’m able to mentor the newer kids,” he continued. “I have a routine that helps them get ready – so eventually everything seems natural. My goal is to help them be successful.” Younger brother Colton has appreciated the counsel. “I can relax when my pig and I are in the show ring, and not feel overwhelmed. Now I know what I’m doing.” At one of the Hogs & Hares’ final meetings, Trentyn Tennant talked about the all-important auction day, which

“Stay clean and brush your teeth, and don’t wear anything with rips or tears in it. I will uphold the dress code 100 percent,” warned Taryn Tennant, addressing members of La Pine’s Hogs & Hares 4-H group that she leads. The Deschutes County Fair – the culmination of six months spent raising their animals – was less than two weeks away, and Tennant wanted her young charges to be ready. “You are representing 4-H and your family. The better you look, the better you’ll show in front of the judges.” The efforts of Hogs & Hares members (who named the group and designed its logo) began early in 2017 when acquiring their pigs. At six to eight weeks of age, the pigs weighed 30-50 pounds. To qualify for Fair, they need to fall within a range of 230-290 pounds – roughly a 400 percent increase in six months! Tennant explains: “In the final weeks, pigs are weighed regularly to track their ‘rate of gain’ and ensure that they will fall within the required range. The pigs’ protein intake can be adjusted up or down as needed, as can the overall

(This informal program introduces children ages 5-7 to cooperative learning and the many things they can do in 4-H when they’re older.) takes place this year on August 5. “It provides an opportunity to get to know people who may buy your pig, or contribute ‘add-on’ donations. So always be kind and professional,” he advised. “Love on your pig while in the pen with it. Connect with people who stop by – they just want to get to know you.” There’s even more involved at Fair – including decorating the pens, and bathing and shaving the animals (who must have ½ inch of hair remaining). Needed items such as supplies, t-shirts, fans and wheelbarrows are being financed through previous fundraising efforts. “Our parade and rodeo concessions netted $1,133 – much more than in the past. You’ve all been awesome,” emphasized Taryn Tennant. After detailing the layout of the fairgrounds, and the daunting schedule of activities, she sought to erase the anxious expressions remaining on their faces. “I’m a pretty hands-on mother, so don’t worry. We’ll get you where you need to go – we’ve never lost a pig yet.”

Her husband Gordon, a “very nice man, also from a small community,” came to visit Brewer and her three roommates for several months before declaring his intentions. “At first, we weren’t sure who he was coming to see,” she admitted. The couple relocated to La Pine to take over the general store (that had been purchased by Gordon Brewer’s relatives in 1946). It stocked a full range of necessities from food to gas, ice, hardware and horseshoe nails. The town library consisted of a wooden stand in the store with three shelves – people could either take or contribute books. (Before making their purchase decision, the would-be buyers spent several days just parked beside the building to gauge the viability of the enterprise. They counted 48 vehicles a day passing by in either direction.) After uprooting the family, Brewer’s husband – who had worked in the timber industry for many years – couldn’t adjust to the retail trade. “He was used to being in the woods,” she explained, “and went back to California – visiting me and our three children (who

Softball Tournament Honors Davey Taylor By Staff Writer

Youth from as far away as Coos Bay, Medford and Klamath Falls gathered to pay tribute to Davey Taylor, who was killed in a car accident two years ago. His son, also named Davey (and involved in the same accident), played on one of nine teams competing in the 10- and 12-year age categories. They shared the field, located on Finley Butte, now named after Taylor. The event, organized by Kevin Briggs and his wife Deanne, attracted several hundred people.

A Greyhound bus came through town twice a day – once going north, and once going south on what was known as the Dalles-California Highway. “We would put up a wooden flag if there were packages or passengers needing transport.” Another sign of the times was that “people could collect unemployment if they didn’t live within 15 miles of jobs in their area of expertise,” recalled Brewer. A witness to La Pine’s evolution for more than 40 years, she contends that “we’re attracting some very educated new residents, including teachers and artists. We have a wonderful assortment of nice people – and can all do our own thing without feeling that we’re stepping on anyone’s toes.” Brewer continues to maintain her 1.5 acres of property. “And I always cleaned my own chimney while my husband was alive – he held the ladder for me.” She has asked her children to “let me know when I should stop driving,” but so far, their only admonition is that “you go too fast, Mom.” Brewer’s advice: “Life is fun – just enjoy it.”

Genealogy Club Float Triumphs Again


By Staff Writer

roving that its members have decorative as well as DNA talents, the La Pine Genealogy Club took first place in the Frontier Days float competition – for the second consecutive year. A compelling Lady Liberty (aka Denise Meese) was dressed in green from torch to toe in emulation of her 305-foot counterpart in New York Harbor. Her companion, Betsy Ross (aka Marilyn Russell), bore a sterner countenance as befits the seamstress created with making the first American flag in 1776.

The new space should accommodate 3,000 additional new patients, based on consistent growth projections.

Midstate Electric Signs Up a New Lineman By Staff Writer

Lineman Kyle Kotlarz encourages the professional aspirations of a young admirer, Tanner Cuevas, at Frontier Days 2017. Midstate Electric Cooperative brought its safety trailer to the festivities for the second consecutive year, holding demonstrations in front of the Fire District building across from Pioneer Park. Lessons covered such issues as safe use of generators and ladders, how the

flow of electricity works, and what do if a ladder hits power lines, or if a power line falls on your car. (The safety trailer, a partnering effort between Midstate and Central Electric Cooperative of Redmond, can be seen at other community events throughout the year such as the Deschutes County Fair, which takes place August 2-6.

(Pun Intended) on St. Charles Construction By Andrea Hine, Contributing Writer “We had to excavate the whole site,” noted Vic Russell, whose company was contracted to clear, level and grade land on which the St. Charles Family Care Clinic will soon reside. “We’re now waiting for the concrete portion to get done, and hope to complete our paving work by the middle of October. This will be followed by water, electrical and sewer (which will be brought down the center of Huntington).” Russell, who takes on projects within a 200-mile radius in eastern Oregon from the Washington to the California borders, admitted that the preparatory efforts at St. Charles were unusual. “We went five feet down, compacted the bottom, and brought back the native material in 8-inch amounts. This involved excavating 3,000 yards of material, and then importing 4,500 tons from our quarry to bring it up to grade,” he elaborated. Vic Russell Construction Inc. (founded in 1973) does a variety of work including bridges, roads, site development and even campgrounds. “Our quarry is used

to produce rock and asphalt, and is integral to the paving side of the business,” noted Russell. “What people may not realize is that here in Central Oregon, we have a nine- to 10-month window of fulltime work due to weather. The rest of the year is spent in snow removal, maintenance, and equipment repair to get ready for the busy season.” Vic Russell Construction Inc. currently has 30 fulltime employees, but needs six to eight more. As Russell explained, “we have a good team – a great group of employees – but we need to add to it.” (Recent hires have come from as far away as North Dakota and Wyoming.) Russell drove a tractor by the time he was 10, and began clearing land for his father (a logger who built campgrounds). “That was the beginning of my desire to do this work, and I’ve been hard at it ever since. I liked it then and I like it now.” Noting that “the northwest is the nation’s number one spot for growth,” Russell sees that growth reflected at the local level. “La Pine has become a real melting pot, attracting people from all over who are independent and passionate.”

He welcomes the influx, and the resultant diversity of opinions. “You don’t have to agree with me – but the numbers tell what is happening. We still have quality of living even with the growth.” Russell and his wife Vicki, recent recipients of the President’s Award for their efforts on behalf of COCC scholarships, have two grown children – a son and a daughter. “But there’s much more to our family. My mother has 35 great-grandchildren!”

VJ-Day cont from front page necessary, the Allies were consistently bombarding Japan from air and sea. The Potsdam Declaration, issued by Allied leaders on July 26, 1945, called on Japan to surrender. The embattled Japanese government in Tokyo refused to surrender, and on August 6 the American B-29 plane Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, and three days later, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki. The following day, the Japanese government issued a statement accepting the terms of the Potsdam Declaration. In a radio address in the early afternoon of August 15 (August 14 in the United States), Emperor Hirohito urged his people to accept the surrender. In Washington on August 14, President Harry S. Truman announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally in a press conference at the White House. To crowds gathered outside the White House, President Truman said: “This is the day we have been waiting for since Pearl Harbor.” There was much joy and celebration around the world when President Harry S Truman declared the day as Victory over Japan Day. Since then, both August 14 and August 15 have been known as “Victory over Japan Day,” or simply “V-J Day.” Images from V-J Day celebrations around the United States and the world reflected the overwhelming sense of relief and exhilaration felt by citizens of Allied nations at the end of the long and bloody conflict. In one particularly iconic photo taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt for Life magazine, a uniformed sailor passionately kisses a nurse in the midst of a crowd of people celebrating in New York City’s Times Square. On September 2, Allied supreme commander General Douglas MacArthur, along with the Japanese foreign minister, Mamoru Shigemitsu, and the chief of staff of the Japanese army, Yoshijiro Umezu, signed the official Japanese surrender aboard the U.S. Navy battleship Missouri, effectively ending World War II.

Fishing on the Way to the Steen’s By Jake Obrist, Contributing Writer eing an avid outdoor activity family, we live in the mecca for things to do. Needless to say, Central Oregon has a lot to offer and its popularity has definitely risen. During the height of summer, this is a busy place to be. I enjoy sharing this region with other enthusiasts but it’s nice to get away


and try something different, isolate ourselves a bit. Southeast Oregon has a lot of attributes that fit this isolation bill well; there’s lots of scenery, hiking, hunting, and fishing. Usually a hot lead on a fishing spot gets me interested real fast. The Steen’s mountains had been prying at my mind for some time now and rumors of fish on the rise consumed me. So,

we embarked on a desert escapade, fishing and hiking wherever the bite or site took us. With a drift boat in tow and a backpacking tent for rest, we were headed for adventures, 3 spots in one day. First stop, Chickahominy Reservoir. This is a small, shallow reservoir located 32 miles west of Burns and it’s notorious for fast-growing rainbows and desert winds. Its reputation was correct, the winds started early. Fortunately my wife wasn’t discouraged and insisted we give it a try, regardless of the wind. We landed a few fish in the short time we fished, and they were healthy, great fighters. Krumbo Reservoir was our next destination. A small reservoir located roughly 50 miles south of Burns, notorious for the same reasons, and it didn’t disappoint. We ended up landing multiple fish during the heat of the day. Several of these fish were

sassy and good fighters, keeping our streak alive. Could our third and final spot produce as well? We headed up into the Steens Mountains and fished a little natural occurring lake called, Fish Lake. This lake is one of those little sleeper spots, you wouldn’t think much about it just looking at it. The views around the basin where this lake resides is worth the trip, and the fishing too. We caught some spectacular fish there in the evening. Fish that I will remember for the rest of my life, and I hope my girls can keep that memory as well. The rest of the trip was spent mostly sight viewing and just taking in the area. The views in this area of Oregon are hard to put in words, awesome will suffice. We were pleasantly surprised that with these views we experienced, the fishing was superb as well.

It’s not often that trips like these happen with the sights we saw, the number and size of fish we caught, the simplicity of camping wherever the adventure took us, and time spent together as a family. We were heading to the lake the other evening to catch an evening bite at Crane Prairie Reservoir and one of my daughters uttered from the back seat, “Dad, how long do you think it would take to head down to the Steens again tonight? Let’s go back there for another adventure!”

Historically Breathtaking Painted Hills By Kelley Hall, Contributing Writer

Seventy miles out of Redmond, nestled just north of the Ochoco Mountains lie the historically breathtaking Painted Hills. These beautiful Painted Hills are one of the three units of the John Day Fossil Beds, which became a national monument in 1975.

One might find it hard to believe that the entire Painted Hills area was once an ancient river flood plain. Where now because of this, are renowned for their colorful striations which give them their magnificent appearance. The bands of colors are the headliner of the show.  Scientist say over 30 million years ago these colorful layers were formed corresponding to various geological eras. This same area has unearthed numerous fossil remains.  It is no wonder scientist call it our “Prehistoric Past of Oregon.” Whether you are seeking adventure by doing a little hiking, taking pictures or just looking for a place to kick back, relax and enjoy the view, the Painted Hills is a perfect location to do it all. If hiking is what you enjoy. The Painted Hills offer trails ranging from one quarter to two mile loops. None

What’s This Eclipse Frenzy All About & How Do We Cope With It?


“Routine medical foot care is the easiest, most efficient and inexpensive way to provide increased mobility, reduced pain, and prevent wounds.”

By Staff Writer

So what’s the big deal? A total solar eclipse (where the moon completely covers the sun, casting the land in darkness) hasn’t occurred in Oregon since 1979. And it won’t happen again until 2169. It’s the first to cross the country coast to coast in 99 years. The eclipse reaches Oregon (near Newport) at about 10:15 a.m. PDT and exits the state at 10:27 a.m. (It will pass over 14 states, leaving American soil via South Carolina, at 2:49 p.m. EDT.) And why here? While the rest of the country offers a longer duration of totality, the Deschutes River Valley in the vicinity of Madras offers the best prospects for clear skies anywhere along the entire eclipse path. What’s going to happen? One million visitors are expected to come into the state, and Central Oregon’s population is expected to double (as is the resultant traffic). ODOT estimates that traffic will ramp up on Thursday, August 17, and stay heavy from Friday through Tuesday,

the day after the eclipse. Multi-hour delays are anticipated. For example, the drive from Bend to Madras – which normally takes less than 60 minutes – could take more than eight hours. In response, ODOT plans to station two-person teams at 22 different locations around Central Oregon – including key intersections along U.S. highways 20, 26 and 97 – to keep an eye on the situation and keep traffic moving in case of minor accidents or medical emergencies. Also thanks to ODOT, hundreds of extra roadside readerboards will warn drivers about road issues. Any accommodations left? In Salem, $750 on Airbnb will get you a backyard tent campsite. In Albany, a “shared room” where two guests can sleep on a fold-out sofa will rent for $770 (up from $30 a night). What should I do if I’m staying away from the madness? Residents are advised to get gas, buy groceries, and run errands a week in advance of the phenomenon. And then, just stay put.

Replenishing your I am not sure where the first half of summer has gone; but it has been flying by. As the temperature heats up and plants get larger, keeping containers looking their best can be challenging. This is the time of year, when a trim for the plants and consistent use of a water soluble fertilizer can really make a big difference.

A slight hair cut all around your containers and removing any spent flowers is important for constant color. A mild solution of fertilizer that you mix with water such as Miracle Grow 15-30-15 applied once a week will keep those flowers blooming!

Tis the Season for Zucchini

The Hummingbird Moth A Bird or a Bug?

By Linda Stephenson Contributing Writer They look like hummingbirds, hover in midair like hummingbirds, hum like hummingbirds and drink nectar from the same flowers—yet hummingbirds and the moths that mimic them aren’t remotely related. One thing that makes these little critters so challenging to spot is that, when people see them, they don’t realize what they’re looking at. Even when you’re peering at them close up, they can fool you. A ruby throated hummingbird is about 3 inches long; a hummingbird moth is about half that. Like a hummingbird, the moth’s body is spindle-shaped, fat in the middle and narrower at the ends-but if you spot an antennae, it’s definitely a moth. The moth’s long proboscis looks like a beak, but when it’s not in use it gets furled up and is therefore unseen. In order to see these moths in your garden you need to make sure their favorite food sources are plentiful. Even when you are peering at them close up, they can fool you.

By Linda Stephenson, Contributing Writer

In a culinary world, zucchini is treated as a vegetable; it is usually cooked and served as a main dish or accompaniment. Botanically, zucchinis are fruits. My zucchini plants are producing beautifully. Let’s hope this warm weather continues so that I can try more recipes. There are many ways to use the fruits of this plant; grilled zucchini, zucchini bread, zucchini bread and butter pickles and my favorite zucchini relish. I’m sure you have bought dill relish for your potato salads and even spread some on your tuna sandwiches, for a different twist try my recipe for Zucchini Relish.

Materials needed: cereal box, white paper, aluminum foil, scissors, tape Instructions (refer to pictures) • If the bottom of the box isn’t white, glue a white piece of paper to it. This makes it easier to see the projected image. • Cut the ends off the box tabs as shown. This creates two openings, one for the foil the other for viewing. • Tape aluminum foil over one of the openings. • With a small (~ 3mm diameter) nail, push a hole through the foil. The size of the hole isn’t critical, you can experiment with different sizes.

Pin Hole

Turn your back to the Sun and hold the finished pin-hole viewer over your shoulder with the sun shining on the pin-hole. While looking in the opening, move the box until an image of the sun appears on the bottom.

Eclipse Glasses

Eclipse Binoculars

THESE ARE NOT 3-D VIEWERS! They are equipped with a special filter for the Sun. You can get then from many La Pine stores for either free or a very low cost.

THESE ARE NOT REGULAR BINOCULARS! They can be ordered through Amazon or many other online sites.

REGULAR BINOCULARS You are now safely viewing an image of the sun. This is a safe way to view an eclipse.

Other Pin-hole Viewers Hands and Tree Viewers

If you only have REGULAR BINOCULARS you can: 1. Firmly attach the binoculars to a tripod, eyepieces facing down. You can do this with duct tape—what else? (Or you can hand hold them, but it is hard to hold them still enough) 2. Make a Sun shield from a piece of cardboard. Cut a hole for one of the lenses. (You don’t need them both.) Then tape the shield to the front of the binoculars with the lens sticking through the hole. Use duct tape to seal any holes that leak light past the cardboard shield. 3. Point the binoculars toward the Sun while holding a piece of white cardboard about one foot beyond the binoculars. 4. It will take a little effort to find the Sun. Once you do, you can focus the binoculars to bring the Sun to a sharp image. DO NOT put your hand or anything flammable near the eyepiece. The concentrated sunlight exiting there can cause a nasty burn or set something ablaze!

Experiment before the eclipse so you will have your best technique set up and ready to enjoy the eclipse!!

Eclipse: Be Prepared! By Helen Woods Staff Writer

Well, it is almost here. The Great American Eclipse of 2017 is 20 days away as of the first of August. A 60mile wide swath across the country from Oregon to South Carolina will fall under the moon’s shadow as it passes between the Earth and the Sun (see map at top of this page). Ol’ Sol will disappear for up to 2 1/2 minutes. A partial eclipse will be seen across America. Not long, right? In the zone of totality, the temperature will drop about 15 degrees, and animals will prepare for sleep. 27,300,000 Oregonians living in the path of totality and upwards of 699,000 visitors from around the world will be either directly or indirectly viewing the eclipse. Madras is expecting 7,000 visitors. All of those non-resident eclipsers will have to travel to their selected viewing site, one way or another. Highway 97 is the only main road; and it runs right through La Pine. We have never seen anything like this in Oregon and the chances are very good that we never will again, so predicting what it will be like before

Eclipse shadow viewed from International Space Station and after the event is difficult. One thing we do know is that we have to be prepared for it. Here are some simple ideas: • Stock up on groceries, water, and gas well in advance so stores can restock. • Pick up prescriptions and medical supplies in advance. Continued - See Eclipse page 18

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.”

Health & Wellness Ever heard of Interval Training? Benefits of Fast/Slow Walking Key benefits in learning good posture and walking bio-mechanics are that we improve our efficiency, burn fat faster and often get out of pain. Our bodies love interval training. It’s our natural way to move and build muscle and stamina. It turns out moving constantly is hard on our bodies. Witness marathon runners and their inherent injuries. When we got our puppy, I went to Guide Dogs for the Blind to learn their dog training secrets. The instructor told me that expecting our dogs to run along beside us for miles caused them injuries as well. She said “Just watch them run off-leash. They run with joy

Youth Suicide Prevention Advice Offered at LPHS Event By Staff Writer o you know of a young person who has expressed feeling helpless, isolated or with no reason to live? It can be difficult at times to recognize the difference between typical problems teens have while growing up versus more serious issues. An added challenge is that during the school year, students are surrounded by adults trained to identify signs of depression and suicide. In summer, however, students don’t have the same access to resources to find help when needed. The statistics are alarming. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among persons aged 10-24 years in the United States (following accidents). Each day, there are an average of 5,240 attempts by young people grades 7-12. “Suicide is a serious but preventable community health issue,” claimed David Visiko, a suicide prevention coordinator with Deschutes County Health Services. “Prevention starts with people asking questions, and knowing how to get help. We want to ensure that both parents and students have the resources they need to engage their friends and loved ones in meaningful ways that provide hope to those at risk.” To facilitate this dialogue, Bend-La Pine Schools hosted “Hope & Help” -- designed to help communities learn more about youth suicide prevention – last month at LPHS. “Four out of five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signals,” emphasized Visiko. “Having friends within a person’s social circle who can offer positive support is a key factor in responding to that signal – people who know what to do when told ‘here’s what I’m experiencing right now – and I could really use your help.’” For those who weren’t able to attend the workshop, Visiko provided immediately accessible resources, including the website www. and the Oregon lifeline at (800) 243-talk (8255).

at top speed for a few minutes, then stop to sniff. Then, they’re off again. It’s their natural way.” This is the principle behind interval training. Once we have some understanding of good, uplifted posture and movement, we can pick up speed for a minute or so. Next, we return to our comfortable, slower speed to recover for 5 or so minutes. Once recovered, we pick up the pace again. This fast/slow cycle is repeated at our own pace and builds leg and heart muscle gently and easily. A Swedish sports coach developed this technique over 70 years ago to build his athletes’ performances most efficiently, with as few injuries as

Poor Man’s Cherry Cobbler: AKA Dump Cake

By Helen Woods, Staff Writer

I am a lazy cook, I guess. Actually, I just don’t like to cook, but I like good tasing food. This recipe has satisfied my taste buds many times over the years. Basic recipe: 1 can Wilderness Pie Cherries in syrup 1 box Jiffy White or Yellow Cake Mix or the cheapest mix you can find 1 cube of butter Optional: a little almond exract or vanilla extract 9X9 baking pan Spray on oil Pre-heat to 350 degrees Spray the 9X9 pan with the spray oil Spread the can of cherry pie filling evenly on the bottom of the pan

Spread the dry cake mix evenly over the pie fillling Melt the butter and drizzle it over the dry cake mix Bake until the top browns This recipe can be multiplied as many times as necessary, but it will take a bigger baking pan. Try other pie fillings (apple, bluberry, raspberry, etc.) for variety!

Nann Flat Bread Appetizer By Betty Mills, Contributing Writer

3 ea Nann Flat Bread 2 teaspoons Italian or Greek seasoning Philadelphia cream cheese, (may use whipped or goat cheese) 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion 1/3 cup sliced Kalamata olives Cherry tomatoes cut in 4ths 1 cup baby spinach leaves Stir seasoning into cream cheese, spread over Flatbread, add toppings, slice in small squares.

Naan Flatbread Naan flat bread, usually softer than Pita, originates in India, by way of Persia. The name comes from the Persian word, non, for bread. Unlike pita, naan has yogurt, milk, and sometimes eggs or butter in it, resulting in a softer texture. Pita has fewer ingredients — just flour, salt, water, and yeast — and originates in the Middle East. The English word, pita, comes from Greek. It is a little tougher and drier. They’re both great for making flatbread pizzas.

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

Local Students Attend Rotary Leadership Academy By Rotary Club of Sunriver-La Pine, Contributing Writer La Pine High School students Sierra Ringering and Haleigh Brader were selected by the Sunriver-La Pine Rotary club to attend the six-day Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) summer camp in June. All campers are successful individuals with leadership potential who are recommended by their schools and selected by local Rotary clubs. The camp teaches leadership skills emphasizing team problem-solving, communication and conflict management, ethical decision-making, and community citizenship. This year, 144 young leaders attended the camp at Grove Camp, in Dorena, Oregon. Ron Schmid Takes Over Club Leadership The chairman of the Club’s 2017 successful annual fundraisers, which generated more than $50,000 for local nonprofits, Ron Schmid has now started his year as President of the Club. Ron is not new to Rotary. He previously served as the President of the Rotary Club of Honolulu. Growing up on a farm near New Rockford, North Dakota, Ron graduated from the University of North Dakota in accounting prior to serving in Vietnam

as a U.S. Army combat infantry scout dog handler. His long and successful professional career included numerous senior level financial positions including VP Finance of Simlog Corporation, President of Auto and Equipment Leasing of Hawaii, and President of the Honolulu Mortgage Company in the 80s. In the 90s, he served as Executive Vice President of the Bank of Hawaii before retiring in 2000. Restless in retirement, Ron founded two additional mortgage banking firms before retiring again in 2016 and moving full-time to Sunriver with his wife Jackie. Ron and Jackie are celebrating 47 years of marriage. Club Launches La Pine Membership Drive Would you enjoy being a member of the Rotary Club of Sunriver-La Pine?

Business Business Spotlight

Karen Brannon, Farmers Insurance in La Pine By Ken Mulenex, Staff Writer


aren Brannon of La Pine has been named one of the top Farmers agents in the country. She received the Topper Achievement Club status for 2017 for exceptional customer service, business growth, and for representing the Farmers brand in her local community. This distinction goes to only the top 6% of all Farmers Agents. Karen and her husband Terry just returned from the Topper Club convention in Keystone, Colorado. The Karen Brannon Agency currently has three full-time employees and has offices in both La Pine and Bend. Brannon stated that "Our proudest accomplishment this year has been providing over $3,500 to support our local schools with teaching supplies, sports sponsorships and grants."

My brother-in-law, Bob, never married, never had children, but he had his Boys. Jasper and Charlie were father and son. In the picture, Jasper, the father, is on the right and Charlie, the son is on the left. They went everywhere with him. When he owned a computer store in Corvallis, they were the store mascots. When he was at home, they were his kids. When he traveled, they were his travel companions. He doted on them like a dad. They were rescue dogs, but they rescued him as much as he rescued them. Several years ago, Bob sold the computer store and moved to West Plains, Missouri. Of course, his Boys went with him. The three of them bought a house and Bob settled in to retire. However, retirement was a title that Bob did not wear well. Before long, he bought a sitdown restaurant specializing in hot dogs. Business was good and Bob enjoyed meeting and talking to the people who came in. After he moved to West Plains, Bob and I would often talk on the phone. Our conversations were wide ranging, running from religion to politics, but a good portion was always spent on telling tales of our dogs. Then came the terrible day when he told me that he had been diagnosed with inoperable kidney cancer and did not have much time. His main worry? The Boys. I promised him that I would take care of them, love them, and give them a good home. Several months later, I went to visit

and, as I was preparing to leave, he said quietly, “you better take the Boys.” The day I left, Bob said goodbye to them and we walked away quickly. He died not too long after that. Before Bob died, we continued our phone calls. They were about the same as before except for including discussions about his health, but always, during the calls, he would say, “how are the Boys?” His voice was so gentle and warm. It was filled with years of shared memories and adventures and love. I always let him talk to them and, I swear, they knew it was him! Three years ago this August, Jasper got to go home to Bob. I don’t know how old he was, but his kidneys were failing. I knew Bob wouldn’t want him to suffer, so the vets at Banfield in Bend helped him on his new journey. Something odd happened just before he left. As weak as he was and as much pain as was in, he stood up and stared straight ahead into infinity. He wouldn’t look at me when I called his name. It was as if he saw where he was going and he was at peace with leaving. After a period of confusion and grieving, Charlie is doing fine. His once grumpy manner has softened. Sometimes he stares out of the front window with the same look Jasper had that last day and I suspect he sees something I can’t see. He seems at peace and I have been blessed to be trusted enough to care for two very special dogs.

to your last. If relaxing is on your agenda, picnic tables and benches are provided in different locations throughout the area. What a beautiful view to overlook while partaking in a bite to eat. This no-fee day of adventure could not have been any better. This place is definitely worth  the trip  but I will add a couple helpful suggestions to make your day stress free. Bring water, there is no water available anywhere, so be prepared. I also did not see any gas stations in Mitchell or anywhere nearby so make sure you have plenty of fuel. Lastly, be sure to take it ALL in, relax, enjoy yourself and you too will not be surprised to learn that the Painted Hills is listed as

are considered difficult, yet all lead you to another display of “stepping back in time.” Don’t miss the Painted Cove Interpretive Trail. It is the furthest area in but this area offers a walking platform that even a wheelchair bound patron can successfully negotiate. The Interpretive Trail offers a close-up look of the gravellike red laterite soil. If photography is a passion of yours, pace yourself. There is so much to capture from so many different perspectives. Time of day, weather, even cloud cover become huge factors as well. Your pictures will change as the sun begins to fall and the day progresses. Believe me, the colors in your pictures of the Painted Hills will change dramatically from your first shot



one of the “Seven Wonders of Oregon.” Local Eats- If you didn't prepare a lunch, no worries. The Sidewalk Café in Mitchell has good food. Your classic diner BUILT TO A HIGHER experience. Getting There- Out of Redmond take OR126E through Prineville, merge onto US-26E, continue for another 44 miles. Turn left on Bridge Creek Rd/Burnt Ranch Rd, from there, follow around.
