La Pine Welcomes New Retailers Later This Year By Lynette Confer One has only to drive through La Pine these days to see the face of our City changing and growing. Although sometimes difficult, change can also indicate, as well as create, a healthy local economy. As one of Oregon's youngest cities, La Pine has several major construction and highway projects under way at this time. “Almost ten years into incorporation, we are seeing lots of projects in the works,” stated Cory Misley, Assistant City Manager of La Pine. “If you're trying to revitalize an area, you need to ask yourself if it's an attractive place for business, for people to live,” Misley said. “There are lots of projects in the works in La Pine, some three to five years out. Seeds are being planted all over the place.” One such project is the construction of a retail space at Highway 97 and Finley Butte Road (51420 U.S. Highway 97). Since 1996, the 2.67 acre parcel was owned by Brewer and Brewer. Through the years the white concrete block building located on this corner

City of La Pine Comprehensive Plan Update from La Pine City Hall

The zoning designations could not be adopted until the City’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) was adopted. The Comprehensive Plan was amended to include the adopted TSP in October 2013. However, the Comprehensive Plan Map (zoning) was not fully implemented – while most City parcels matched the City’s Zoning Ordinance, some did not (see map of parcels that were rezoned). Those parcels were in a “County Holding Zone” until the City adopted the Comprehensive Plan Map to align all parcels within the City with the Comprehensive Plan and Map. The recent changes adopt the zoning designations set out in the City’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted by City Council in March 2010 and acknowledge by LCDC in September 2012.

When the State Department of Land Conservation and Development officially approves a local government’s plan, the plan is said to be “acknowledged.” After acknowledgement, the Plan becomes the controlling guide for implementing ordinances and zoning – the laws that bring the plan to fruition. The La Pine City Council adopted the City’s Comp. Plan cont. on page 22 Comprehensive Plan in March 2010. The LCDC approved the City’s Comprehensive Plan and associated map in September 2012.

What Does It Take To Protect Your Home From Wildfire? Protecting your home from wildfire damage requires limiting the amount of fuel that could bring flames and embers dangerously close to your property. The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) recommends you create three defensible zones around your home: 0-5 ft., 5 ft.30 ft. and 30 ft.-100 ft. – or to the property line. Focus on limiting the amount of combustible items on your property, as well as using and maintaining noncombustible mulch and vegetation.

The following guidance is intended to help you choose appropriate materials and use proper construction practices when rebuilding, repairing or renovating your home. This information is based on field research and wildfire testing conducted at the IBHS Research Center and by other leading fire science organizations.

It has not been long since we highlighted the Gun and Recreation Show and now we are looking at the end of the month and Memorial Day weekend heading us for the Mayor’s City Clean up on June 4, 8:30 a.m. at the big Park & Rec Building, and the Rhubarb Festival on June 11TH. At the same time as the City Clean-up, Mid Oregon Credit Union opens for business on Huntington Road with a ribbon cutting ceremony for La Pine’s newest financial institution. This year will be the 5th of the City Clean-up project days. But, it is not the first time that La Pine has been highlighted in their efforts to do a summer clean-up for tourists! In News briefs at the Bend Bulletin in April 24, 1998, there was a short column about the Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Newberry Station motel sponsoring its Community Involvement Day with the theme of Take Pride in La Pine. It was scheduled for May 9th. Are you ready for what they did? The triangle of land adjacent to the motel and the highway owned by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), was slated to become a small community park for La Pine. Volunteers were ready to help clean up the area and be ready with gloves, tools and Pick-up trucks for hauling off the debris. They met at 10 am and at noon there was a lunch served to the many volunteers. Then Chamber Director, Ted Scholer, also encouraged businesses and property owners to clean-up and show pride in ownership. Now, 18 years later, La Pine still works to clean-up every spring, adding Put a Shine on La Pine last year, focusing on the plague of knapweed invasion and curb appeal. No one has had to reinvent the wheel, we just resurrect our ideas from a by gone period and make a division of Concept Retail, Inc. them work today. 15989 Burgess Rd.

The group “Put the Shine on La Pine” has gone above and beyond to show this community and others how to set an example by using local businesses and volunteers to put a stop to noxious weed invasion in Deschutes County.” Olsen went on to say, “Put the Shine on La Pine” Team members “I think it is important to honor and thank those who choose to commit public acts of service to their community. I want to thank the Deschutes County Commissioners, my great friends and mentors on the Deschutes County Noxious Weed Advisory Board, and the residents and volunteers of La Pine for making this happen today! We hope this group will serve as a model for what can be done through the collective action of a community.” With the arrival of warm weather, Spotted Knapweed is sprouting up all over town, in neighborhoods and along roadways. “Put the Shine on La Pine” team members are beginning to organize weed pulls around the community.

Forms, Weapons, and Sparring to name a few. Four students attended the tournament: Kellie and Spud Wright, and Austin and Angelina Gandy. Each student came away with trophies. Austin placed 2nd in forms, and 2nd place in sparring. Angelina placed 3rd in forms and rocked a 1st place finish in sparring. Spud came away with 3rd place in kata, 2nd place in sparring. Last but not least Kellie, our only adult competitor this year came home with 3rd place in weapons kata, and 3rd in sparring. It was a great way for students to mingle with other martial artists and show off their hard work. If you’re interested in trying out the martial arts, Master Cummings Hard Style Martial Arts is definitely worth a look. The first class is free, so you have nothing to lose.

“Just one year of schooling at COCC has really turned my life around.” - BEN J. DAVIES

BEN J. DAVIES “I’ve never done well in school but just one year of schooling at COCC has really turned my life around. Before college I worked several different jobs, never really getting anywhere, now I own my own business doing what I love.

If you walk by The FitZone on Thursday evenings you will often hear a loud “HAY-YA” or “OSU”. This would be the sounds coming from students and instructors participating in Master Cummings’ class. Not only are these students having fun achieving a higher level and fitness and focus, they are gaining skills to help them in other parts of their lives. Martial arts also helps teach self-discipline and socialization skills. Students work together to learn moves, and their patterns. Students also learn respect, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, that can be the most important It often carries over into school, helping to improve behavior and even grades, according to recent research. La Pine is the home to Master Bruce Cummings - who has over 40 years of experience in the martial arts. He holds degrees in several different forms of martial arts including Tae Kwon Do, Jujitsu, and Karate. What makes Master Cummings’ classes so different is that he pulls from all forms of martial arts as well as kickboxing to provide a well-rounded education to his students. You can find him holding class every Thursday from 6-7 at the Fit Zone for all experience levels, ages from six and up. One thing that Master Cummings’ students recently participated in is a charity martial arts tournament (Face Your Fears) in Bend. The tournament includes various competitions to choose from – Traditional Forms, Creative


Have you ever wondered about anything in a wetland? Well this year if you come to La Pine Middle School & see what the students are doing, you will see students roaming the wetlands learning about the water, plants, & the animals of the wetland. This year at La Pine Middle School, the teachers & staff decided to give the students a unique experience by designing a new testing schedule. This schedule consists of three morning sessions of testing & following those sessions the students are given two hours to work on their projects about the wetland. photo by Triton Notary The kids at the school have to make Upper left - Kayla Samano, 8th grade; upper a poster & present it to their peers. right - Tabitha Wright, 8th grade; Aaron Neuroth, 8th grade; Ayden McComb, 8th grade; Dylan All students must come up with an essential question about their topic and Westbrook, 8th grade. do research or do an experiment based on their question. Also one student whose poster is exceptional will be shown to the whole La Pine community. Although one student will be representing La Pine Middle School, the project is different for all grades. The 6th graders will be doing their posters on the animals of the wetland. While the 7th graders are doing their posters on the plants of the wetland. Therefore the 8th graders will do their posters on the water of the wetland Ms. Welsh, a 6th grade teacher at La Pine Middle School, spoke on the subject and said the project gives students a chance to learn about, plants, water quality, animals, research, and cooperation. Also, Ms. Welsh says the students are excited because they get to learn by doing science, and thinking about it like a scientist. Furthermore, photo by Triton Notary Ms. Welsh believes this new schedule Emilia Ives explores the plants of the wetland. is important because the students need something to help break up a days worth of testing. The teachers & staff believe this project gives the students a chance to learn about something they usually wouldn’t be able to learn about. I believe this project is special because it teaches kids how important wetlands are for our ecosystems & our way of life. The La Pine Middle School students love this new idea because it takes the stress off of them while testing. The wetland is so important to La Pine, that there is no reason not to learn about it.

self-paced. I never did very well in a classroom environment, especially high school, so being able to work without someone watching my every move was very beneficial. The instructor was a crucial part of my success. He saw something in me that no one else did. I would like to let people know that attending the community college was a great experience.

La Pine Rural Fire Protection District Places New Pediatric Medical System Into Service

The La Pine Rural Fire Protection District has recently completed a two year project to upgrade its advanced life support capabilities to a very unique segment of the community – small infants and children. One of the most difficult and often stressful calls emergency medical personnel face is a pediatric cardiac arrest or major medical emergency. Even for the most experienced medics in the field, these are challenging, highly stressful, and emotional calls. Under the supervision of the District’s Medial Director and local emergency medical physicians the District sought out to provide the most state of the art pre-hospital emergency care, to increase the chances of survival of pediatric patients. The District’s two year process concluded with placing the Handtevy system into place. The system is a complete customized pediatric resuscitation system that includes the equipment, drugs, and training that allows medics to effectively treat children. The Kits are designed with packets of medical equipment and medications for each size and age of child. This allows medics to determine the most accurate drug dosages and age appropriate equipment within seconds compared to minutes using the previous system of care. The District and its skilled medical personnel are known for providing exceptional service when dealing with critical trauma and medical emergencies in adults, stabilizing the medical condition and getting them to the distant hospital. In

2015, the District has provided a nation leading 66% advanced life support resuscitation rate in non-breathing pulseless patients (national averages are in the 1030% range). These successes come from changes in how care is provided with high performance CPR, airway management, venous access, appropriate drug dosing, and defibrillation. This is however on adults (big people). What happens to the infant or small child that has a traumatic injury, severe medical condition, or even stops breathing and loses a pulse? How do medics resuscitate – do high performance CPR, obtain a tiny airway, infuse fluids, calculate minute dosages of life saving drugs, and even defibrillate a very small child where the margin of error is slight, and the hospital emergency department is 35 miles (or more) and a mountain pass away in an extremely stressful environment? The Handevy Pediatric Advanced Life Support System and training were placed into service to provide medics the tools to provide early aggressive care on-scene and to confidently assess, resuscitate, and stabilize infants and small children more effectively and confidently - and to save lives. The system was put into actual first use last night (May 18) as La Pine Fire Paramedics responded to an 18 month old child having seizures that they were able to stabilize and transported the child successfully to St. Charles in Bend.

Local Homeschool Group Gets Fire Station Tour On May 18, a local homeschool group, La Pine Home Educators, was lucky enough to get a tour of the La Pine Fire Station. Fire Fighter Paramedic Nicholas Addy and Engineer Paul Stevenson were on hand to give the group of kids and parents a behind-the-scenes look at the day to day workings of the Fire Station, from their kitchen to their work out room. From the Fire Engines to the Ambulances. La Pine Home Educators would like to thank La Pine Rural Fire Protection District Firefighters and Paramedics, volunteers and staff for all you do to keep our community safe. We learned a lot on our tour! We also learned that you do so much more than fight fires. You help teach people, too. Thanks, again!

Central Oregonians Show Their Commitment to Defensible Space This past weekend marked the final days at Deschutes County transfer stations to dispose of yard debris in an effort to create and maintain defensible space around your home. Even with the wet weather throughout central Oregon, resident took full advantage of the local FireFree Events. “Residents in central Oregon proved that they understand their responsibility when it comes to wildfire preparedness and are more prepared than ever for our fast approaching fire season,” comments Alison Green, FireFree Program Coordinator. “Local residents participated in hail that was reminiscent of this winter, thunder, lightning and rain to prepare themselves for fire season,” adds Green. Green reminds residents that the FireFree message is a year-round effort to educate community members about how they can be prepared for wildfires. Residents are encouraged to visit www. for more information on reducing the structural vulnerability of homes and getting prepared for fire season. FireFree is a public education campaign designed to increase resident participation in wildfire defense and to mitigate losses due to wildfire. The annual clean up days are a key part of involving area residents in removing

Rosland Elementary Our Green Team received their recertification for being a Green School this month. Requirements to be a green school include doing a waste audit, energy audit, and working on a “green” project at school. Our school has been working on making compost with lunch waste and they also have reduced the amount of waste going to the landfill by stacking the paper boats, that are used at lunch, prior to putting them in the garbage. This has reduced our garbage from 4 bags of garbage per lunch to 1 bag per lunch. Good job Green Team! AVID NEWS… What is AVID: Simply, AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education. LPMS AVID traveled to the valley to visit two universities on the 25th and 26th of April. They had the opportunity to tour George Fox University and Pacific University. AVID students stayed the night at Champoeg State Park in cabins and yurts. This was a great way to expose students to colleges so that if they decide a four-year college is their path, they know some of their options in Oregon! Both Pacific & George Fox give great scholarships to students.

Rhubarb - It’s Not Just For Pies By Linda Stephenson L & S Gardens

Rhubarb is a vegetable with a unique taste that makes it a favorite in many pies and desserts, but Rhubarb is NOT just for pies. Being a vegetable and tomatoes being a fruit, you can pretty much use Rhubarb in anything that calls for tomatoes. It was initially cultivated for its medicinal qualities in Britain and China; it was not until the 18th century that Rhubarb was grown for culinary purposes and brought to the United States. Rhubarb is actually a close relative of garden sorrel, very rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber. Rhubarb is a cool season plant that is very winter hardy, which makes it ideal for our high desert planting. Following a season of growth the Rhubarb crown becomes dormant and temperatures below 35°F. are required to stimulate bud break and subsequent growth. This vegetable is one of the first signs of spring. The shoots emerge in abundance as long as the temperatures remain cool. As temperatures increase, top growth is suppressed, even appearing dormant in periods of extreme heat. With declining temperatures in late summer, foliage growth resumes. Rhubarb stalks are found in local grocery stores and you can also buy it fresh from the garden at L & S Gardens where we have over 120 plants in the ground now ready for

harvesting. Rhubarb varieties are classified as red, green with hints of red or a deep maroon. Most people prefer the red stalked types, although the green ones are generally more productive. Red stemmed types are not necessarily sweeter because color and sweetness are not always related. In many cases, the same variety has acquired different names in different parts of the country as the plants get moved around, particularly for types grown from seed, although you may wish to purchase specific varieties, don’t overlook acquiring equally productive and delicious un-named “heirloom” plants from friends backyards. Once planted, Rhubarb plantings remain productive for 10 to 15 years. Some varieties to consider are Canada Red, Cherry Red, MacDonald and Victoria. To celebrate this plant I invite you to join us on Saturday, June 11 from 9 am to 4 pm at L & S Gardens for our 7th annual Rhubarb Festival where you can observe and taste the many different ways you can use Rhubarb. At this event you will find Rhubarb beer from Sunriver Brewery, Rhubarb wine from Honeywood Winery, dozens of main dishes and desserts all made using Rhubarb. We will have 55 vendors, 4 big bands including our very own Desert Sage Band and New Creations from La Pine, plus lots more to make the day a fun event.

Rhubarb Chili, Dutch Oven Style By Ken Mulenex With the Rhubarb Festival just around the corner, Saturday June 11 2016, I thought I would provide my recipe for Rhubarb Chili. Yes, I know that some of you are saying “Rhubarb Chili”? Take it from me, it is delicious, and a blue ribbon winner. I’ve been ask for this recipe more than any other I’ve ever done. Oh by the way, the Rhubarb Festival has a chili cook-off this year. So if you like chili it’s a great chance to try some of the best, and there will be plenty of samples to try.

Central Oregon Dutch Oven Society The Central Oregon Dutch Oven Society (CODOS) was established in March 2001 by Ken Mulenex, Leon Pantenburg, Gerald Gawith and Ted Scholer as a result of an idea put forth by Leon. The theme behind the idea was to shed light on the art of dutch oven (DO) cooking that had been a basic necessity of the pioneers and settlers who crossed the American great plains and the Rocky Mountains and settled the West, and in particular, Oregon. The intent at the beginning was to accomplish this by participating in La Pine’s 4th of July “Frontier Days” celebration. Hovering at the edge of the process was Carl Lacey, already an accomplished Dutch oven cook. The first year Carl served as the photographer and advisor on the “How To & History” of Dutch Oven Cooking. By 2002, Carl was fully engaged with CODOS. He was the one to try & beat at the cook-offs. Carl soon became the go-to guy on Dutch oven cooking and the central energy behind CODOS. He developed all of the user guides, judging rules, DO cook-off guidelines and recipes by the hundreds. He also provided guidance & help in the publishing of CODOS’s 1st & 2nd DO cookbook. He held classes on DO cooking in La Pine and at COCC. Carl never did anything half way, he loved DO cooking and was an expert at it.

What’s Your Car Really Worth? By Jeremy Johnson Contributing Writer

These days driving is a necessity. If you want to make a living you must go to work. If you want to go to work, you must drive. If you drive, it will cost you money, so you must go to work. Sounds kind of like a mouse on a wheel doesn’t it? But unless you’re wealthy, it’s a wheel ride we all have to take. We just hope that sooner or later we’ll have enough money to step off that wheel. For most people a car is their second most expensive investment, followed only by a house. But the sad part is, when you consider how much money is lost to depreciation and operating costs of vehicles over a person’s lifetime, transportation is the biggest financial loss they will likely ever incur! Ouch! As I mentioned before, to a degree there is no way around this. There are however ways to greatly reduce these losses so you can step off the mouse wheel sooner. The answer is to look at the bigger picture. Here’s how it works. From a financial standpoint, vehicles are an expense not an investment. This is a fact that has been blurred by car salesman and the lending industry who hold the Kelly Blue Book value as the Holy-Grail of a vehicles worth. But financially speaking, vehicles are not “worth” anything, they cost you money. The only worth a vehicle has is in its use. If you resell it, all you’re doing is recouping some of the money you already spent. Then the question is when your car gets some miles on it, are you going to trade in that vehicle for whatever it’s “worth”, plus a lot more cash on a newer one? Can

There is much more to a cars value than what it will bring at trade in or sale. A vehicles value is in its use. Every time you trade vehicles, it costs you. Fixing up and maintaining the car you have is almost always a better move financially than replacing it, Even if this means spending more on the vehicle than it is technically “worth” on the used car market. you hear that mouse wheel spinning? Cars depreciate. When you spend money on them, sooner or later you will lose that money. The only thing you’ll have to show for it is the years of use you got out of that vehicle. To keep your car on the road it will more than likely take more money than the vehicle is technically “worth”, but it will take a lot more money to replace it. Those that have have caught on to how this works, have saved themselves a big pile of cash over the years. They decided rather than spending 15 to 30K on a newer used vehicle or 20 to 60K on a new one, they would rather take good care of the vehicles they have and fix them when needed. Sure, at times they might need to sink a few thousand into their car for maintenance or repairs. While the Kelly Blue Book may not give that vehicle a standing ovation, without car payments that customer’s bank account sure is looking better these days. Sounds like smart finance to me - for whatever that’s “worth”.

Meet the 2016 Jingle Bell Run Youth Deschutes County Sheriff announces Honoree five new appointments within the leadership team By Kailey Kees Contributing Writer

Hello, my name is Kailey Kees. I am 13 years old and I attend La Pine Middle School. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis (JIA). I am very active and I participate in many sports, including: basketball, softball, & volleyball. I am also a three stripe green belt in Kenpo, however my body no longer allows me to do that. I am also Vice President of my 4H group. At age 11, I began to experience many weird medical Issues during my 5th grade basketball season. I had a lot of pain and swelling, but it was mainly in my ankles and knees. We thought maybe my allergy injections that I was getting at that time, were causing all the pain and inflammation. However, within a few months my symptoms got worse, and I had stopped my injections. I had more swelling and pain in my elbow, both wrists, most fingers, and my back. Luckily my Mom works at Deschutes Rheumatology and was able to speak with the doctors regarding my symptoms. Shortly after I was evaluated by Dr. Fohrman, and I began treatment. I consider myself kind of lucky that my Mom worked there, otherwise I am afraid we would still be trying to figure out what was wrong with me. As of now, I am doing fairly well. I have occasional flare ups, but overall I am well managed with my medications. I do my best to not allow my Arthritis to limit me! As the 2016 Jingle Bell Run Youth Honoree, I hope to see more awareness being brought into schools! Not only with P.E. teachers and nursing staff, but with all staff members who are involved with students. School District Employees need to have the knowledge, and be able to understand how arthritis affects children’s bodies. I for one, would love to be understood just once, and if I can’t be understood, just be credited that the pain is real. I want to break the trend of “You can’t have arthritis, your just a kid!” Sadly, people of all ages are affected by this disease. Please help me raise awareness, and help find a cure! This year I am a team captain for The Jingle Bell Run, one of the most spirited and fun runs in the whole country. The Jingle Bell Run is a holiday themed 5K and what money is raised benefits arthritis research. Come out and join my team, “Joint Effort”, this year. Wear a holiday themed costume and tie jingle bells to your running shoes. It will be fun and is for a great cause, research to help kids and adults like me! 2016 Jingle Bell Run is Saturday, December 3 in Downtown Bend. Its the 25th Annual Jingle Bell Run Event. Join Joint Effort!! visit and select teams, from there select “Joint Effort”. Join our team and help raise money for a great cause.

Oakridge Volunteers Create Family Friendly Space in Mobile Home Park Oakridge Mobile Home Park once generated half of city’s police calls

At the heart of the Oakridge Mobile Home Park is a bare patch of ground that just a few years ago was a magnet for squatters and drug activity. Now, it is becoming an attractive family area that will include a playground, gazebo, benches and a picnic-barbecue area. On Friday, May 20, dozens of hardworking, dedicated volunteers from the city of Oakridge, the local fire department, Home Depot and other organizations joined local residents, park staff and tenants in a “Community Caring Day” at the mobile home park. Volunteers will build a play structure, trail, fence and retaining wall. Those are the latest installments in what has been a dramatic transformation of a park that not long ago was in a dismal state of disrepair and so plagued by crime that tenants were fearful of venturing from their homes. Louis Gomez, city administrator and former chief of police, recently recalled that several years ago more than half of the city’s police department’s calls were to the mobile home park and many involved violent crimes. Now, he says, the number of calls has dropped sharply and the park is a much different – and safer – place for people to live. That transition started in 2014 when the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County purchased the Oakridge Mobile Home Park as part of its ongoing efforts to preserve the region’s declining stock of mobile home parks. The nonprofit agency, which owns more than 1,300 affordable housing units, has acquired five mobile home parks in recent years and is working to acquire additional facilities in the future. The number of mobile home parks across Oregon has dwindled in recent years as private owners sell off the underlying property for more profitable redevelopment projects. Nearly three dozen parks, totaling nearly 2,000 spaces, have closed over the past decade.  “It’s critically important that we maintain and improve what historically has been a vital source of affordable housing,” says Terry

McDonald, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. With a huge amount of help from community volunteers, St. Vincent de Paul has made steady progress in cleaning up the Oakridge park. “We took out three or four football fields worth of debris,” recalls Gienia Baines, St. Vincent de Paul’s social services director in Oakridge and a key player in the park’s turnaround. Nearly a dozen of the park’s oldest and most deteriorated trailers have been removed and replaced by new manufactured homes. The laundry room was rebuilt, and an aging home remodeled into a community center called Legacy House. Nowhere is the “then-and-now” difference more startling than at the site of the future family area, where the ground was once strewn with syringes, old mattresses, broken glass, garbage and other debris.  A large boulder that once provided cover for squatters and drug users has been removed – a symbolic act that Baines says sends a message that the community has turned a corner. Volunteers are welcome to join in Friday’s Community Caring Day, Baines says. People who are unable to do physical labor can assist by helping with lunch, signing in volunteers and doing other tasks.  She asks that people interested in helping contact her or park manager Tim Leach at (541) 7824485.

U.S. 97: Sunriver Interchange – OR 31 Paving Project and La Pine Sidewalk Project Project Components • Repave approximately 16 miles of U.S. 97 from the Sunriver Interchange (MP 154) to OR 31(MP 170) • Upgrade signs and guardrails, as necessary, and install rumble strips and durable striping • Construct sidewalks and streetscape elements on the west side of U.S. 97 in La Pine from just north of 3rd Street to 6th Street • Install rapid rectangular flashing beacons and raised medians in the City core Why the project is needed U.S. 97 is a critical part of the State’s transportation system and is a major north-south freight corridor that links California and Washington. This section of highway is also an important commuter route between Bend, Sunriver and La Pine. Keeping highways in good condition and providing a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity is a critical aspect of the mission for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). U.S. 97 Pavement Condition This section of U.S. 97 is showing signs of extensive cracking, patching and pothole repairs, and moderate rutting. The latest pavement ratings show most of this section of highway as being poor. The last time it was paved was in 2004. To extend the life of the roadway and to address safety concerns, in the fall of 2014, maintenance crews spent $150,000 to fill in ruts between the Sunriver Exchange and just south of Vandervert Road. In the spring of 2015, another $129,000 was spent by ODOT in this section filling pot holes and sealing cracks to extend the life of the roadway until it can be repaved. La Pine Downtown Corridor The 2011 U.S. 97/La Pine Corridor Plan, which was later folded into the 2013 La Pine Transportation System Plan, identified a number of concerns in the 1st Street to 6th Street corridor. Some of those concerns have been or are in the process of being addressed (restriping of U.S. 97 through town, installing a driver feedback speed sign north of 1st Street and improving signs throughout the corridor in 2012, and implementing the U.S. 97 @ 1st Street Project in 2015). One of the Corridor Plan findings

identified the lack of continuous sidewalks on the westside of U.S. 97 and the need to improve pedestrian crossings. The many driveways in the corridor also present conflicts between pedestrians and motorists turning into driveways or backing up over existing sidewalks. What is planned Pavement Preservation - ODOT plans to grind out the top portion of the pavement and replace it with 2-3" of dense hot mix asphalt concrete over the full width of the roadway. Safety improvements such as centerline rumble strips, shoulder rumble strips and durable striping will be installed. Any portions of that section of highway that have been recently repaved or newly constructed will be omitted. Sidewalk/Streetscape - The City of La Pine adopted a sidewalk and streetscape design that has been implemented in front of city hall and soon with the U.S. 97 @ 1st Street Project. With this project, the priority will be the west side of U.S. 97 beginning just north of 3rd Street and constructing new sidewalks/streetscape elements south to 6th Street (see following diagram), or as far as current funding allows. Patching of U.S. 97 south of Sunriver. ODOT and the City of La Pine will work with property owners and businesses to address access concerns related to the construction of new sidewalks and streetscape elements. The proposed project will create continuous and safe sidewalk access on the west side of US 97 through the City core, and enhance crossings which connect the schools with residences east of US 97 by installation of raised medians and rapid rectangular flashing beacons (RRFB). Traffic control during construction Paving is anticipated to occur at night to lessen the impacts on traffic. Lane closures, travel lane shifts and delays up to 20 minutes can be expected. The sidewalk and streetscape work will mostly occur during the day and should have little impact on traffic. Business access will be maintained during construction. Timeline Project Development 2015-2016 Bid Opening 2017 Construction 2017 Estimated Project Cost Total Estimated Construction Costs - $8.5 M

Normalize Your Blood Pressure

By Sunny St. Claire, Contributing Writer

Meet Mary Daniels, Michael Ryder and Twinkie

By Celeste Davis, God-Made-Health Mentor, CHC, CLWC “I just don’t want to lose my mind”… If you have this thought as you approach your senior years, you are not alone. “Dementia was the number-one health concern of 12,000 Americans (both genders together) in 2010 Bupa Health Pulse, a survey conducted by the British healthcare company Bupa”. (1) The good news is, your health is in your hands and normalizing your blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar are the best ways to protect yourself against age-related dementia. In April of this year, 19 people from around the United States, Canada and New Zealand participated in our on-line 30-day “Beet” Blood Pressure Challenge. 16 of the 19 brought their blood pressure into normal levels in a matter of weeks, lost weight and began to feel more energized, happier and hopeful for their future. These folks practiced the 7 Habits of Healthy Blood Pressure for 30 days and are making these habits a lifestyle. Participants reported drops in both systolic (top number) and diastolic (bottom number) of 10 to 40 points in about 21 days. Normal blood pressure numbers transferred to better mental health. Participants reported… “My brain is much clearer”, “I seem calmer and not so moody”. “My depression is going away!”. “I can think more clearly”. How does high blood pressure affect depression and memory? Prashanthi Vemuri, PhD is a Mayo Clinic researcher who has dedicated her life-work to understanding cognitive decline. Her studies indicate that 90% of age related cognitive decline “is due to amyloid or vascular changes to the brain” (2) Amyloid is one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s, however, Vemuri reports, this accounts for only 30% of the people. The remaining 60% have a condition called “vascular dementia” which is due to damage to blood vessels in the brain; typically caused by high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high cholesterol. Nutrition Action magazine quoted Patrick Smith, assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University School of Medicine on the topic of brain health and high blood pressure. Smith stated, “The areas in the frontal lobe of the brain that are most important for executive function,

planning and learning are particularly vulnerable to damage caused by blocked blood vessels.” Smith adds, “progressive cognitive problems happen over decades, so controlling your cardiovascular risk factors-getting high blood pressure and high cholesterol into normal range-could make a big difference over time.” (3) If you want to keep your mind, lower your blood pressure. A 4-year study of over 1300 individuals reported in the Journal of the American Academy of Neurology states “High blood pressure was associated with cognitive decline. In individuals with high blood pressure, cognitive decline occurred in a relatively short time period and the risk was highest in untreated hypertensive patients”. (4) More good news! God created your body to heal. When you give it the right building materials in real, God-Made-Food and practice the 7 Habits of Healthy Blood Pressure you may also lower your cholesterol and your blood sugar, improve your memory, and even decrease or eliminate joint pain. It’s not magic, it’s God’s plan. The body’s job is to heal. Your job is to supply it with the right materials.

Meet Mary Daniels, Michael Ryder and Twinkie, residents of Prairie House for the last year. They’ve enjoyed living here. The kind staff, opportunities to stay active and make friends, and the acceptance of family pet Twinkie havemade it their home. Their journey has not been easy yet it has been full of loveand being of service to others. They both have a great sense of humor andare quick to smile. Mary and her first husband, Reg Ryder, lived in Portland. Having no children oftheir own, they looked a year for a child to adopt. They finally found Michael and adopted him at 4 ½ months, helping him through the struggles of a baby born withalcohol fetal syndrome. Sadly, Reg died in a boating accident. Mary later married Roy Daniels, a heavy equipment operator all of his life. When he retired in 1990, the family moved to La Pine and bought a home in Ponderosa Pines. Shortly thereafter he was diagnosed with cancer and died within a year. Mary and Michael kept on keeping on. She volunteered with Newberry Hospicefor years and took care of three foster children though

Mary, Michael and Twinkie

Children’s Service. She occasionally still hears from them. Bowling, music and camping have been her favorite hobbies. When she was young, she loved school and rollar skating! Michael is a kind, friendly man who has struggled all of his life to be independent. He only asks that people get to know him before they make judgments. He loves to sing country and christian songs. You will see him around town running errands on his bike,another favorite hobby. And then there is Twinkie, who is Michael’s joyful responsibility. It has been a pleasure to get to know Mary and Michael and share some of their story with you.

The Foodie Column

By T. Myers

The Foodie Column for June 2016 By T. Myers There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow- a bright golden haze on the meadow, the corn is as high as my little dog’s eye and it looks like its climbing clear up to the sky…June is busting out all over! Oh, don’t we wish! Living in an area that is known for its rhubarb and little else when it comes to edible plants I look back at the historical struggle to grow food for families as La Pine was settled 100 years ago and little has changed. Farmers diligently tried enriching the soil, building up the garden beds and trying their best to grow crops that could feed t4e family and be stored over the winter months and they were successful after several years in growing root vegetables, potatoes and greens of many kinds and they figured out ways to stop the summer freezes from affecting some of the strawberries and other plants they nursed along. Rhubarb- the June 11th Rhubarb Festival at L&S Gardens on Huntington Road, we see the miracle of a century’s worth of growing the City’s favorite offering as it shows off its glorious self for a day of everything rhubarb!
