“Always Faithful”

How a Gilchrist family is giving back to the community by honoring the late Marine Sgt Matthew DeYoung By Wendy Korn, Eagle Team Reporter & Staff Writer Since losing her beloved grandson in February, Peggy Carlson and other relatives formed the Matthew DeYoung Foundation to give awards and scholarships to students in the Gilchrist area. Sgt DeYoung was raised in Gilchrist until his senior year in high school, when he moved west and attended Phoenix High School in Phoenix, Oregon. In honor of his time as a Gilchrist High School football player, his jersey was retired during a home football game and a plaque was created (Continued on page 8)

A Letter from the La Pine Community Kitchen To our partners in serving the community, A unique characteristic of America is that people in close communities are quick to help others in their community. It began with the Pilgrims and has been found operating well in towns and counties throughout the United States even today. La Pine is a good example where many compassionate local individuals and merchants have supported the La Pine Community Kitchen and its efforts to provide hot meals, food boxes, fresh produce, clothing, hygiene items and pet food to those in need at home. We deserve to be proud of these efforts. That’s why we want to thank you for what you have done. Your generous gifts of time, money and goods to make the La Pine Community Kitchen work as well as it has, helps us keep our doors open for those in need who have come to depend on what we do here to brighten their lives. In this year alone, we have so far served 14,478 people hot meals five days a week, and 1,714 food boxes three days a week. Our Produce Stand has given out fresh produce, eggs, bread and other needed items to 3,978 people, three days a week. The Kitchen purchases and uses donated food items to accomplish this task. Our clothing store, the “Closet” provides free clothing, shoes, bedding and hygiene items donated by members of our community, as well as cat and dog food and we have so far served 1,189 families this year.

La Pine Ya Ya Sisterhood By Laura Colombo-Wurst

We have had a busy couple of weeks, we participated in the Trunk or Treat, what a fun time, there were six of us giving out the treats, and we had two witches, Cleopatra, a devil, a hiker and two that dressed as themselves. We thought our decorated trunk looked pretty scary. The participation in the event was overwhelming, and the kids of all ages were great. Sharon Walling our president has been very busy organizing the Evergreen Craft Boutique featuring quality crafts and food. Each of our vendors are donating 10% of sales to SCOOTR for their Christmas toy drive. We hope that everyone will come over and start their Christmas shopping. The address is # Aspen Alley, La Pine, Sunday November 20th thru Saturday November 26th. See our ad in this issue on page 22. And a big THANK YOU to Gordy Wanek for his donation of the building. At our last meeting we gave our charitable donations to the La Pine Community Kitchen, Meals on Wheels and the Sparrow Club. Each quarter we give out charitable donations to selected La Pine charities. Most of the $10.00 dues we collect at each meeting go toward our charities. If you are new to the area, looking to make new friends and make a difference in our community, the Ya Ya’s might be just what you are looking for. We would love to have you join. If interested please call Sharon Walling at 541-536-2170 or Sandie Peterson at 541-536-3247.

We wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. - The Ya Ya Sisterhood. M

Deschutes County News

National Emergency Alert Test Bungled Locally Submitted by Deschutes County

The test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) that was supposed to happen today at 11:00 PST apparently had some sort of technical problems. Employees of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office monitored TV (cable and satellite), local radio and the internet to evaluate the test that didn’t appear to happen. Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management contacted Oregon Emergency Management and at this time they are not aware of what went wrong and are contacting the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS/FEMA) for additional information. Several national media outlets have reported “that viewers and listeners in many states said they saw and heard the alerts at the scheduled time, but others said they did not. There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancies, but that was one of the purposes of the test — to find out how well the system would work in an actual emergency.” Locally, citizens of the Tri-County area DO NOT need to be worried about our being able to use EAS if needed. Our system is local and is monitored closely and tested weekly by Deschutes County 9-1-1 and is not affected by what may have gone wrong at the Federal level. To ensure reliable news is forwarded to the public, we will send out an additional press release when we receive information regarding what happened from Oregon Emergency Management or DHS/FEMA. For more information, please call the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office at (541) 617-3303. M

Tom Greene announces bid to run for Deschutes County Commissioner Submitted by Tom Greene for County Commissioner BEND, ORE. – Long time active community member and current Bend City Councilor Tom Greene announced today his candidacy for Deschutes County Commissioner, which is currently held by Alan Unger. As part of his campaign, Tom wants to focus on three main issues that are currently in front of the county; 1) Jobs and Economy, 2) Strong Public Safety, 3) Forge our own Destiny. Greene said, “I have been in Central Oregon since 1989. As a real estate professional, I have seen how the gyrations in the housing market influence our economy. It is critical that we diversify so that Central Oregon is more resilient in the face of normal cycles in real estate and tourism. I will bring that personal experience and understanding of the local economy to the commission. Tom was an integral part in helping renegotiate union contracts along with reducing the health care cost of city. “I believe my experience over the last three years allows me to come in with some great experiences to help put the county in a position to grow. I know how and continue to make hard decision even when they are controversial.” Tom has deeply loved and respected Deschutes County and the people who call Central Oregon home since before he moved here, and is in fact why he relocated his family here. Tom enjoys taking advantage of his favorite things to do in Central Oregon: fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, floating the river, and skiing. Because of his love for the area and the people here, he has been a volunteer leader in the community, serving on the Board of Directors for several organizations locally and statewide including Mt. Hood Hospice, St. Francis School, and St. Vincent de Paul, also serving on the budget committee for several years at each organization. Tom has also served on the Board of the High Desert Celtic Society for nine years and was President for three. He has been a leader of the Knights of Columbus in the Bend and Central Oregon districts for several years, gaining experience in auditing as well as meeting goals and timelines. Tom is also a past member of Rotary and will be again when some of his other volunteer commitments are over. “I plan to take my community and city experiences and apply them to the Board of County Commissioners. It is my involvement in the community and support from citizens that has driven me to this decision to run for county commissioner. I’ve seen firsthand the delight on peoples’ faces when they visit Deschutes County and start looking for a house. I want to make sure that we continue to provide those opportunities to new citizens and the people who have called Deschutes County home for their whole lives.” Press release from Tom Greene, tom@bendoregon.comM

Comprehensive Planning and a South County Plan

By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter & Staff Writer The Planning Commission met at Three Rivers School Nov. 10 in the Otter Room. Commission members and public was invited. In the meantime according to a memo sent out by Planning Department Director, Nick Lelack, there is now a proposed boundary map for South County to serve as a defined boundary for the area. It includes the Sunriver area and everything south to the Klamath boundDecember 8, 2011, 5:30 p.m. ary south of the incorporated City of La Pine. The Deschutes Services Center map shows that the area includes land to the east 1300 NW Wall Street and the west of the residential areas along the 97 Bend, OR 97701 corridor. The County has a series of questions they are considering in order to solidify the South County Plan. Question 1: Is the proposed boundary acceptable? If not, how should it be amended? Question 2: Does the scope of work provide adequate direction?If no, how should it be amended? Question 3: Does the outreach plan provide enough options for peopl to participate. If not, what should be added? Question 4: What roles does the Planning Commission want to play in the South County Plan process? The South County Plan information is available on the Deschutes County website under Planning Commission/South County Plan. It is called the South County Plan Memo. The report is currently 21 pages in length, but it is a fast read with good graphics. M

La Pine Life


By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer

A Month Full of Events, Parties, Activities! From the warm and sunny days of mid-October to the cold blast from the north that prepares us for Thanksgiving and the winter to come, people in La Pine keep busy by moving the outdoor activities in doors. It has been a real busy month for this little community and events hosted by organizations and businesses, people and places, filled the lives of many of us as we moved through our month together! We were so busy I did not get everything this month! The La Pine Lions brought the sight and hearing van to the Middle School and tested 243 students to establish a baseline year for all of them. Tony DeBone, Denise Hatch from SCOOTR, and local Lions worked all day to get the job done, SAL (American Legion) and SCOOTR helped the Lions with the costs and the big blue van did its magic to help La Pine get served! The busy Legionnaires put on an Oktoberfest Dinner on the 24th, serving up succulent sausages with all the trimmings to a room full of patrons ready to enjoy the evening repast. Add some music and good service, German decorations and costumes and it was a wonderful time for everyone!

The Halloween event was a fast paced Armadillo music-filled night of crazy costumes, more Oktoberfest food and a big group of people ready to enjoy the great Flame-on food and new no host bar in the Heritage Room. Take a look at the four finalists for the costume contest in the photo below, left! LPRD hosted a clean-up at Leona Park on October 30th and will sponsor a second clean-up day on November 5th. Local Boy Scouts, La Pine Lions and other volunteers came to put in parking ballasts and clean-up the little park before winter. Our town was ‘a buzz’ on Halloween night when 70 local businesses and another 30 plus trunks hosted over 1000 local children for Trunk or Treat. Lions and SCOOTR volunteers made sure that

Halloween tradition again this year. November started with a bang! The first of (hopefully) many Ladies’ Nights was held by Mountain View Floral De-

signs on Huntington Road on Thursday the 3rd. The girls showed up after close of business to sample some Cabernet Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer wine and an assortment of snacks (including Appel Dingslook for the recipe in the upcoming Cowboy Seasonal Cookbook. Friday the 4th was an evening of food collection for the Christmas Basket Association at the ‘Zumbathon’ held

at Fit Zone. Amyee and Mike Hess and new partner Carol Swendsen and her husband Eldy hosted the after-hours with champagne, substantial snacks and two hours of relentless, hard thumping Zumba! The midnight darkened dance floor found forty plus dancing participants with glow in the dark bracelets there to support their coaches and work out a few kinks. It looked like they made a good sized dent in the pantry of the CBA! The Chamber Board and search com-

mittee also met together for final interviews for three candidates for Chamber Executive Director on Friday morning the 4th. Word should be out soon about their decision! I went over to the Holy Redeemer Church to snap a few pics at the Bazaar and caught the vendors having a great time serving their customers. People who

know about the lunches that are served at the Bazaar had nearly cleaned out the Kitchen of its goodies before I arrived and everyone sat at the tables with big fat smiles on their faces because they were all so full and happy! The ULEWs (Understated Ladies of Exraordinary Worth) met at the Community Kitchen for their monthly luncheon to support the Kitchen’s Pantry. A small

group of eight ladies raised a tidy sum and will meet again next month! Linda Stephensen twisted my arm on the 5th, with a bottle of terrific champagne (she knows what this reporter loves!) and I joined twenty plus ladies at the L&S Gardens owner’s private residence for a

Lady Party of Purses and Possibilities! I cannot tell you how much fun it was

Books sold three for a dollar and just a reminder that the Book Nook is open on Tuesday morning and Sunday afternoon every week! (Great presents for the Holidays, guys!) On the 6th, the Community Kitchen hosted the first of their cooking Classes in Vegetarian Cooking. Tobi Pawson and a slew of volunteers led the group

through the many recipes of delicious and very surprising dishes. The crowd was thrilled and completely sated when Tobi passed out samples of her wares to the thirty men and women who were there to see what they could learn. There were drawings for prizes and ideas for shopping for items to use for the wonderful dishes. There will be a second class on Dec 4th. Sign-up at the Kitchen if you want to be dazzled with refreshing new approaches to Holiday Recipes! Cindy’s Haircuts and Nature’s gifts hosted a Body Wrap Party on the 7th. Customers could see how they could use the new technology behind detoxifying their body in the form of wraps you can do at home. The American Legion led local citizens in the celebration of Veteran’s Day at the La Pine Cemetery Friday morning, the 11th (11-11-11), and then the people were all invited to an American Legion Potluck at the Lodge following the ceremony. Life in La Pine will continue at a fevered pitch with the opening of the new City Hall and the SCOOTR fundraiser on the 18th at the American Legion Lodge, the community Thanksgiving Dinners and Holiday events and the Christmas Craft Fair and Light Parade opening the newly renovated LPEC Center on Dec 9th and 10th.

Passing Through Paradise…


By T. Myers, Eagle Team Reporter and Staff Writer

Visitors from Japan Loved La Pine No one knew that a forged friendship started in 1982 would lead to a long term relationship that crossed cultures for the next 29 years! Dave and Karen Gillette and their five year old daughter, Kelli, hosted a young Japanese exchange student at their home in Antioch CA. “In Antioch”, Karen Gillette explained, “There was a program called ‘Small World’. Our family was asked to host a young person from Japan. A tour group was coming to Antioch and I was worried about handling a foreign student when I had plenty to do with our special needs daughter.” Despite the problems that could occur, the Gillettes jumped in and found that they had little difficulty communicating with the lovely young girl who showed Dave and Karen that she could be a great big sister to little Kelli (Tomiko had a sister at home) and the three week program was over too soon for the Gillettes and for Tomiko. So the friends from both sides of the Pacific kept in touch, calling each other for short calls Two years later the Gillettes met Tomiko’s sister and then they hosted two other young ladies from Japan (Tomomi and Hiromi). The Gillette built their affection for their friends and their Japanese culture. Through the years the Small World Program and the Gillettes had great learning experiences and the friends they made stayed a big part of their lives. “We did have a wonderful learning experience every time we shared our home. In a recent visit to La Pine, Tomiko Fujita, our honorable daughter and her two honorable sons spent time right here with us. We have become like grandparents to the boys and we are proud of the family as though it is our own. Tomiko travelled to La Pine with her boys,

Gakuto age 10 and Haruto age five, leaving her husband Masahiko Fujita at home to care for the family’s pet cat. The couple has a beautiful modern home with a nice back yard and the husband bikes to work even though they own two cars. The family enjoys camping, maintains a lovely garden and sees to it that Gakuto has piano lessons and the family comedian, five year-old Haruto, entertains them with songs and stories. Both boys enjoy airplanes and make origami models and they love to play baseball. Although during their visit they spoke little to no English, they knew how to say yummy to cookies, cakes and spaghetti! Another fun fact is their fondness for beards. When they saw local Lion President, Ron Gerhart at the Finley Butte Park where I met the family, they thought he was Santa and got very excited. (Gakuto used to go up to men on the streets that sported a white beard and asked, “Are you Santa Claus?”) The boys have been at Finley Butte Park playing on the new equipment, riding on Dave Gillette’s ATV and a friend’s Gold Wing motor cycle. Mama Tomiko was concerned over all of the tattoos we have in America. (They do not allow them in the public baths of Japan because they usually signify the Mafia. The family does not use the public baths because they are too shy.) Tomiko told the Gillettes that her boys would always remember their wonderful time in La Pine. They did not want to leave. Karen wants to remind all of us that people are people. We might be from different cultures, but we have more things alike than those cultural cues that are different. The Gillettes do not know when the family will be back, but La Pine Mayor, Ken Mulenex, has invited the family back “Anytime!” M

Green Energy – Greenspeed Technology from Carrier


Recently, Randall Marchington, an expert Mechanical Estimator from Bend Heating answered questions about Carrier’s newest Greenspeed heat pump technology and what it means to homeowners in terms of savings.

Q: Randall, what is Greenspeed Technology? A: Greenspeed is a new heat pump technology from Carrier Corporation that vastly improves the efficiency of Carrier’s Infinity line of residential heating and cooling equipment. It use to be great to get a 9 or 10 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rating and with Greenspeed, customers can expect to get up to a 13 HSPF rating which greatly exceeds the standards for receiving the various energy rebates and tax credits. Q: What are the incentives such as rebates and tax credits that are available when you upgrade to Greenspeed? A: The incentives are better than ever. For example if you were to install a qualifying Infinity heat pump you would be eligible to receive a rebate of up to $1900 from your electric utility provider, plus federal and state energy tax credits of up to $1040.00. In addition Carrier is offering up to $1250 in cash rebates on qualifying equipment. Q: How much money can I save on heating bills by installing an Infinity Greenspeed Heat Pump system?

A: Since Greenspeed is the industry’s most efficient heat pump system, the savings can be as much as 75% of what you are currently paying. So you can see that it would reduce your heating bill dramatically with electricity savings, not to mention a great hedge against energy cost increases. Q: What sets Bend Heating apart from other Central Oregon heating companies? A: Bend Heating is the only “Factory Authorized Carrier Dealer” in all of Central Oregon. That means we can provide a 100% Money Back Guarantee backed by the factory. Add to that, Bend Heating has helped build Central Oregon communities since 1953, longer than any other HVAC company. We are required to be certified by federal, state and local agencies. We participate in rigorous ongoing training that requires us to perform many different tests to certify

the installation is correct and the paperwork is in order for the rebates and tax credits to go through. Q: How can people contact you for more information? A: You can contact me at 541-948-7193 or email me at and I’m happy to provide a no obligation estimate of costs and savings.

American Legion

La Pine’s Continues to Reach Out to Community By T. Myers, Newberry Eagle Reporter I went to the American Legion to snap a couple of photos for the Eagle on the night they held their Oktoberfest and sat down with Post 45 Auxiliary president Winnie Palmer to get some information on what the American Legion has been doing for the community and other charities. First of all, there are four organizations under the American Legion umbrella: The American Legion is composed of vets, either men or women. The Sons of the American Legion (SAL) are members with folks that were in the service. The American Legion Riders (ALR) do social things together but sponsor a wonderful service to families when they display flags and presence at funerals and memorial services. The Legion Auxiliary is made up of ladies who have a parent or husband who served the country as part of the military. Each one of the four organizations works to help support a list of different charities. In the past year the SAL has given money to bring the La Pine Lions Sight and Hearing Van to the middle school to test all of the kids for setting a baseline of information for the student’s records. The Legion

donates $200.00 to the Community Kitchen Two times a year to help fill the pantry. The Legion groups sponsor Memorials, Flag Folding, Honor Guards, and special ceremonies for funerals and memorial services. They hold a Veteran’s Day Ceremony every year at the Cemetery and also a special flagging of the veteran’s graves and memorials on Memorial Day. They also hold potlucks for the families after services. The Auxiliary and the SAL buy sweats and underwear for students who need them at our local schools. They help raise $300.00 for white socks and underwear to be sent to the Veteran’s homes each fall. They also just sent $8,000.00 worth of clothes to White City VA and an additional $4,000.00 worth of clothes to the VA Hospital up in The Dalles. Each month they send $250.00 worth of care packages to veterans who are serving overseas. And $200 goes to McDonald House up in Bend. Thanksgiving is a big event every year. At about 12:30 in the afternoon, the Legion serves approximately 350 members of the community that would otherwise not get dinner or have to spend the meal all alone. They also host monthly events and fundraisers for Children and Youth in the community; their primary focus is all about the kids in the community! Besides their charity work, they host a number of fun dinners and events and rent out their space to help others in the area plan big events.

DeYoung enlisted in the Marines in August of 2005 in order to serve his country and provide for his family. His first duty was as a military policeman in Afghanistan from February to August 2006. His next duty lasted from August 2007 to March 2008, where he was part of Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 39 in Iraq. The next year, he re-enlisted in the Marines and trained for six months to do reconnaissance, which started his tour in Afghanistan in November of 2010. Some of the honors that the sergeant earned included: Purple Heart with a gold star, Navy Unit Commendation, NATO ISAF-Afghanistan award, Navy/Marine Corps Parachute Insignia, Rifle Expert 4th Award and Pistol Expert Award, just to name a few. At 26 years of age, Sgt. DeYoung of the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Lejeune, N.C ended his service to our nation on February 18th 2011. He stepped on an improvised explosive device during combat in southwest Afghanistan’s Helmand province and died in the arms of his best friend Sgt. Lee Harris of Medford.

A Poem by Charles Buchanan

They may have been a brother, a sister or a friend…they rise again declaring the MP 21:4 11/91/01 legacy of men. Born in wombs of freedom they fell in distant lands; they come again rejoicing where the flag of liberty stands. We live again to honor, they live again to proclaim the unity gained by courage and hope’s eternal flame. They rise again from the ashes of history’s sonnet of grief, their love of country proud and deep…the bonds beyond belief. But singing songs of valor they fought yet sought no gain…to stand before the gates of freedom to give this nation its name: They rise again united, and from history’s bloody rod, have given us their blessing;


Bent by a wind the tree bows in awe of the majesty and quiet of nature’s law, along the thin balcony of darkness and mist the father leans forward for a midnight kiss, tugging ever so gently on his blanket of night, giving me comfort for the day long and bright. Hope lay eternal as I opened my eyes to a golden sunset and promised reprise.

We only see endings, not the infinite charms from darkness to dawning in God’s loving arms. M

About Charles Buchanan “Yes, I have a long and varied history. I have walked through the fires of life like most of our veterans. I was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1947. My father was a student of the Julliard School of Music and later served in Patton’s Third Army. My mother was a housewife most of her life. My music and poetry skills were developing back when I was in my teens, and I later received an Associates degree in music myself, and attended California State College at Fullerton for further music and liberal arts studies. During this time I worked for various departments of defense related to aerospace firms and facilities as a security professional, receiving a top secret clearance from the Hughes Aircraft Company back in the 80’s. I also worked for Pan Am World Services at the Trident Submarine Facility in Silverdale, WA, and a brief period at Martin Marietta and McDonald-Douglas astronautics in Huntington beach, ca. I am now retired and live in Sunriver at our family heirloom. I have written two published books of poetry through titled The Vagabond Cafe and Cedar On Satin (shown above, right).” Charles Buchanan

Thinking Healthy:

Regular alcohol use can damage young minds, but parents biggest influence in keeping kids from drinking.

Your son or daughter has stared high school. They’re smart and want to make their own decisions. And they know what you expect of them. So, it’s time to loosen the parental reins, right? Not yet, according to new studies on the adolescent brain. Thanks to magnetic resonance imaging, we know that tremendous brain development occurs during the teen years, and that the brain is not fully developed until about Marilyn Russell - expecting 22nd great grandchild age 25. We also know the part of the brain that controls planning, delayed gratification with Cassandra Russell Burbach. Due in Feb.!M and judgment develops last. That’s why kids take risks and often don’t think things through before jumping in. It’s also why regular alcohol use during adolescence is dangerous. Drinking lowers inhibitions for risky behavior. And unfortunately, too many Oregon youngsters drink. In the past month, about one in three 8th graders consumed alcohol. About one in four 11th-graders binged, consuming five or more drinks within a couple of hours. Alcohol is the biggest drug problem among youth. And it’s not just about safety; there are serious health consequences as well. Important work is being done on this issue at Oregon Health & Science University’s Portland Alcohol Research Center. Here are some of the things they are finding out: Q: Excessive drinking by youth has several dangerous short-term consequences, including car crashes. What is research telling us about the long-term health effects? A: Alcohol impacts nearly the entire body. So it’s no surprise that long-term alcohol use can lead to problems from head to toe. Research shows that a few years of heavy drinking can hamper youth in school and in learning to interact and build relationships with others. Regular alcohol use can lower overall brain function and learning ability. It also can undermine kid’s decision-making ability and impede the development of social skills. The younger a person is when they start to drink regularly, the more likely they are to become alcoholics. Young people also tend to become addicted faster than adults. Overall, alcohol compromises the body’s immune system and causes greater susceptibility to diseases. It can fuel the destructiveness of mouth, throat, pancreatic and • Comprehensive Eye Exams other cancer.

Q: What makes adolescent brains especially vulnerable to alcohol’s effects? A: It’s simple: adolescent brains are still developing.

Some youngsters, given all the challenges of growing up, are anxious or suffer from depression. We know through research that these adolescents can be at great risk for alcohol addiction. CONCLUSION: Parents don’t underestimate your impact. Kids say their parents are the most powerful influence on whether they drink. Daily involvement with your child’s life is huge.

Sunriver Recreation • Shopping • Concerts • Dining Patriot Recovers and Moves to Pendleton Friday afternoon, November 4th, at 12:30 p.m., there was a special graduation party for a disabled American who has completed his initial rehabilitation at the Sunriver Nature Center and is about to move into vocational training at the Blue Mountain Wildlife Center in Pendleton. Patriot, the Bald Eagle, who gained national attention through a video of his receiving “mouth-to-beak” resuscitation, has recovered sufficiently to be transferred to his new home in hopes that he can become a “spokeseagle” for the wildlife care center that is in the process of creating a true wildlife hospital. Patriot was struck by a car near Crane Prairie Reservoir in June, receiving extensive injuries that included head and spinal trauma, a dislocated left shoulder, elbow and wrist and a fractured left ulna bone. He was found along the road by Lora Luft and Dodi Witt, both of La Pine, who brought him to the Sunriver Nature Center. When first presented for medical treatment, Patriot was paralyzed in both legs and near death. Nature Center staff transferred the eagle to Dr. Jeff Cooney, noted raptor veterinarian. Despite the poor prognosis for survival, Dr. Cooney began intensive care treatment, providing intravenous fluids and supportive care. When the bird survived the first night, Cooney then completed X-rays and blood work to determine the extent of injuries. While the eagle was anesthetized, breathing stopped and Cooney ad-

ministered mouth-to-beak resuscitation to revive Patriot. Over the past five months, Patriot has made dramatic improvements, regaining the use of his legs and the fire in his eyes. Unfortunately, Patriot will never be able to fly again. Like so many returning war veterans with crippling injuries, Patriot is now faced with making his living with restricted mobility. At his new home in Pendleton he will receive lots of TLC and be trained to participate in educational programs. For more information, please contact the Sunriver Nature Center at 541 5934394.

NEWBERRY COUNTRY ATTRACTIONS 5 Public Shooting Range in Gilchrist Gets Makeover

Explored by Wendy Korn, Newberry Eagle Reporter & Stephanie Ely

By Wendy Korn, Reporter

Need a place to shoot? Fire off some rounds at the public range in the Gilchrist State Forest. But be prepared to clean up after yourself by removing all traces. For this issue’s adventure, the Newberry Eagle met a volunteer there who explained how important it is to keep this shooting range clean. Photo by Walker Range “If you packed it in, pack it out”, said Stella Wright, a volunteer with Oregon State Police (OSP). She said that people need to leave with everything they brought: targets, shells, trash, etc. Since acquisition of the forest in 2010, Gilchrist has had the responsibility of maintaining this area along with the rest of the 70,000 acres of forest. The shooting range has been around since “old Gilchrist time” and was first built by the Gilchrist Mill. The people that have decided to make this a priority nowadays are from Walker Range Fire Patrol Association Crescent, specifically R.D. Buell, the district’s supervisor who takes on many community projects every year. Buell organized a group of volunteers from Walker Range and OSP, received donations and made time from his busy schedule to work on the shooting range. This work began in the heat of late August and is still continuing today as time and weather allows. First, the group, which including Stella Wright, raked and piled trash along both sides of the range. There was so much trash Stella said, that they had move “TVs, microwave ovens, plastic milk jugs, wood targets, shell casings, years of all kind of trash”. Buell came prepared with a bobcat, dump truck and water truck to finish off the dirt stretch of the range. He then made large dirt piles at the end of the range. “It was a hot and dirty job. Everyone was covered in sweat”, said Stella. Everyone including Stella, Walker Range volunteers and a community service worker that was assigned to cleanup duty. There are two enclosed buildings at the range perpendicular from each other, equipped with basic structures that provide support for firing positions. The one on the right side looks out to the longer range, and the one on the left has a higher dirt pile (as of this writing). Both buildings are getting a much-needed makeover by the volunteer group. The left building has a replaced metal roof and new wood siding, donated by Interfor. The group plans to paint soon as well. The downside of this project is that people are still not taking responsibility and cleaning up their trash. In the Photo by Wendy Korn three months since the big cleanup, there are now loads of trash that once again will have to be raked and hauled – but by whom? Walker Range doesn’t want people to rely on them – they want people to pick up after themselves so that the next person can enjoy the range. The consequence would be shutting down the entire operation, and nobody who The remodeled building with new wood siding tand roof. owns a gun would want to see it go. Enjoy this public area, but please try to leave no trace. To contact RD Buell, email him at M

by Bob Cox Business Business Talk to Your Children (and Parents) about Shared Financial Picture It’s Thanksgiving week. And if you’re fortunate, you can look around your Thanksgiving table and see several generations of your family. Of course, as you know, many types of cohesiveness are involved in knitting a family together. But one connection that frequently gets ignored, at least in terms of family dialogue, is the financial linkage between parents and their children on one hand, and these same parents and their parents on the other. So if you find yourself in this “sandwich” group, it may be worth considering your financial position. If your children are very young, you might want to start by emphasizing the importance of three separate concepts: saving, spending and sharing. If you give them an allowance, or if you pay them to do some minor tasks around the household, you can encourage them to put the money in three separate containers. The “spending” jar is for them to use as they choose, the “saving” jar is to be put in some type of savings or investment account and the “sharing” jar is to be used for contributions to charitable causes. You can extend the spending, saving and sharing themes by encouraging your kids to spend wisely, watch how their savings grow and feel pride in the work done by the charitable groups their dollars support. Later, when your kids are older, and can earn money by babysitting, mowing lawns or working part-time, you can further encourage good financial habits by offering to match their contributions to a Roth IRA. And be sure to discuss the different types of investments available; they may enjoy learning about the ways in which they can participate in the financial markets.


YOUR 401 (k)?

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

Above all else, talk to them about the importance of developing good financial skills and how these skills will play a part in your family’s overall well being. Now, let’s turn to your parents. If they’re elderly, you may find that talking to them about financial issues may be considerably more challenging than talking about these issues with your children. It’s unfortunate, but true: People are sensitive about money and often don’t want to talk about it. You may find that you need to be persistent, especially if your parents are getting on in years. Perhaps you encourage them to consider their current position, and what planning might need to be considered. Do they have accounts in a local bank? Where are their investments held? Do they have a financial advisor? Have they worked with legal professionals on any arrangements? If your parents have expressed interest in leaving a legacy or passing assets to family members, you might consider encouraging them to seek assistance from the appropriate professionals. After all, if something were to happen to your parents without them having made the proper arrangements, their wishes may not be carried out. So this Thanksgiving, as you think about the value of your family, you might take some time to consider issues that need to be addressed. . It may take time and diligence — but when it comes to your loved one’s wishes and well-being, it’s probably worth the effort. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor, Bob Cox. See Bob’s ad below, left. M

Home is a Very Good Place

for the Holidays A three part work of fiction by T. Myers

One look through the window and it was plain to see that company would be having a hard time travelling to thanksgiving this year. Jane saw the ice on the deck and checked the seed level in the bird feeder before returning to the dinner preparations she lovingly undertook every year for her family and friends. It was a wonderful time to be in the kitchen. She had thawed the turkey and washed and dried the bird so she could work her magic. Jane carefully separated the meat from the skin and ran a paper towel under it so she could slather the 20 pounder with butter. As she snipped of fresh sprigs of rosemary to lay against the bird’s breast meat, she found herself humming God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen over and over until she caught herself and switched to a rousing rendition of White Christmas, her personal favorite. Weather not-withstanding, it was a delicious day for someone who loved to cook! When the bird was salted and buttered- and properly herbed, she added two big lemons, a sweet onion and a handful of rosemary to the cavity of the bird, covered it with foil and put it in the garage fridge. It was time to make the egg-nog buns. Jane took out her big bread bowl and a quart of egg-nog so she could make the rich buns for the holiday meal. She mixed the dough quickly and set it aside to rise while she went to the pantry to pull out cans of pineapple chunks and man-


darin oranges for the Ambrosia salad. A few minutes later with the addition of sour cream, maraschino cherries, minimarshmallows and the drained fruit, another dish was in the fridge. Jane was expecting her two daughters and their families, a few cousins from hither and yon and a dozen good close friends from the area. They would all bring treats and side dishes to the dinner, but out of town company stayed for four days and she needed to think about everything from setting the Thanksgiving dinner table to breakfasts, lunches, leftovers, laundry, weekend dinners and the final Sunday goodbye brunch. The really big deal about Thanksgiving, which she loved dearly, was the decorations for Christmas. They went up on Friday when houseguests were out shopping and she always created the change with wonderful items that were unique and special. This year she was going to do a golden theme of everything she was able to find. White twinkle lights would make it festive and the candles she had set out in all of the rooms would glow with scent and light to enhance the atmosphere. “What am I doing?” Jane thought to herself, and she returned to her fridge for veggies to cut up for the crudités she would offer as an appetizer. There was dip from the market and she would offer nuts and crackers with a big bowl of punch. That was already to pour in the

bowl tomorrow. In 24 hours, the meal would be history. She called the pizza parlor and ordered three extra- large pepperonis and a medium cheese to be ready at six and then turned on the timer. Back to chopping the veggies. Carrots, celery, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, artichoke hearts, olives, pickles and slices of yams went onto three trays and out to the fridge in the garage. She grabbed the flour and whipped up pie dough for four pies and wrapped it and put it in the fridge to roll out after dinner. The roll dough needed a punch down and she was just about to do it when the doorbell rang. Hurrying to the front door, Jane noticed that it was only two o’clock. Outside in the cold stood a little boy about five or six. Jane didn’t recognize him. “My kitty got out,” said the little fellow. His cheeks were bright red and his lightweight jacket was not sufficient for a day in the low 20s. “Have you seen her?” Jane answered by asking the little boy a question, “My name is Jane. What’s yours?” “Nicholas,” he responded. “Well, Nicholas, you better come in for a minute and tell me what your kitty looks like. I’ll get you a cookie and maybe we can go out and look for her together.” Jane knew right away the little boy was a stranger, but he came inside immediately and moved towards the woodstove to warm his hands. “Would you like a chocolate chip or a ginger snap?” she asked him. “What’s a gingersnap?” Nicholas asked. “A spice cookie. Here, try one!” Jane said as she handed him one of each. His little hands were icy when she touched them. She walked to the coat closet and rifled through her pockets producing a pair of gloves for the boy. “Here you go. Put these on they will keep you warmer. Now, Nicholas, tell me about your lost kitty.” “She’s very small and striped with yellow fur. She did not come in last night and no one told me until I got up this morning. So I am looking for her,” he explained. “It was really cold last night. I am sure she is hiding somewhere warm, don’t you think?”

“I hope so,” he answered. “I am trying to remember where I walked this afternoon after I left my aunt’s house. I haven’t seen her and people are not answering their doors except here.” Jane grabbed her coat and said, “Let’s see what we can find out. Tell me where you went before my house, okay?” The two of them walked out to the main road and the little boy looked left and right before shrugging his shoulders. “I can’t remember, Jane.” It’s a funny thing about stressful times of the year. It always seems that lots of things happen at once- and if anything can go wrong, it will. Here Jane was with a little stranger who was looking for a lost cat and he was lost, too. She would spend a little time with him and if they didn’t find his aunt’s house or his little kitten, she would take him home and call the Sheriff. By the time they reached the main road Jane knew she was in trouble. Nicholas was as lost as his kitty! Back at the house she called the Sheriff and was told that she would be contacted by a patrol officer. She took little Nicholas into her big kitchen and asked if he wanted to clean-up and help her for a while. She poured out a cup of coffee and heated a cup of apple cider in the microwave. Grabbing a pen and paper she started a list: Aunt’s name? Potatoes, Dressing, Gravy, Brussel Sprouts, Pumpkin Pies… The timer went off, startling Jane into real time and she ran to the phone to call her daughter to see where she was and when she would arrive. After explaining that she had an issue to deal with, her eldest agreed to stop and pick up the pizzas. Nicholas wandered back into the kitchen, took one look at the cider and inhaled it. Jane set out some cheese sticks and crackers and he did the same with them. “How long have you been walking around?” Jane asked. “A long time,” he said with a full mouth. He continued to clean up the food. Daughter number two blew through the back door and stopped cold when she saw the boy at the counter. “Mom?” Ellie

! ! 1 1 0 2 r a w l i v i !!c

asked. “Who is this?” “He lost his kitty and stopped by an hour ago. We are waiting for help to get here.” “I need to talk to you, Mom,” Ellie continued. Jane could tell something was getting to her daughter and she set a few more crackers in front of the boy and followed Ellie into the den. “Mom, I think that is the missing boy,” she whispered. “It is all over the news!” “The sheriff should be here in a few minutes. I called them because he doesn’t know where he lives. I haven’t had time to ask him his Aunt’s name or anything since we came back. Tell me more!” “He was taken out of his yard in Portland yesterday. I think it’s him, Mom!” There was a knock on the door and Jane answered it quickly. Deputy Randall stood there ready to come in. Ellie didn’t hesitate, “Tell him we have the missing boy!” “What ma’am?” Randall asked. “She thinks my little friend is a kidnap victim from Portland. He showed up here an hour and a half ago looking for a missing kitten and he cannot remember where his Aunt’s house is located.

We looked, but it’s getting dark and I thought we needed your help,” Jane told the deputy. More people came through the back door. Jane heard someone say ‘who are you’ to Nicholas and there was the sound of suitcases hitting the floor. She squired the Deputy to the kitchen where Nicholas sat, looking much warmer, finishing the second plate of snacks. There were a lot of people coming in and out of the kitchen, carrying belongings and foods for the weekend. Jane looked at Deputy Randall and realized immediately that her daughter was correct. Here in her warm kitchen was the little boy who went missing the day before. “Are you Nicholas Jordan?” the Deputy asked. “Yes, and my kitty is lost. We tried to find my Aunt, but Jane said you would come and help me. I don’t know where to go,” Nicholas said softly. “We need to find the kitty because it is already dark and she has been gone since yesterday. I bet she’s cold, too.”

Museum Needs Local Historians from Gilchrist/Crescent The Klamath County Museum is seeking information on the history of the Gilchrist-Crescent community, and is inviting residents of the area to meet with museum staff during a meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011, at the Crescent Ranger District office. “We’re interested in hearing people’s stories, as well as seeing any old photos or documents they may have related to Gilchrist and Crescent,” said Todd Kepple, museums manager for Klamath County. “We have quite a bit of information gathered already, but we feel it’s time to update our files and see what new information may come to light.” The unincorporated town of Crescent was established in 1910, while the community of Gilchrist was established in 1938 as a company-owned town operated by a lumber firm. Both towns relied primarily on the Gilchrist Timber Co. for prosperity, though there were other logging companies active in the area, and many people worked for government agencies or businesses, or as ranchers. “We’d like to learn the history of all aspects of the community – not just the prominent movers and shakers,” Kepple said. “We’d also be happy to receive files on local families.” The Klamath County Museum hopes to eventually gather detailed information on all communities within the county over the next two years, Kepple said. “Klamath Falls may be the biggest city in the county, but we know there are many interesting and important people and events from the rural areas that need to be documented,” he said. For more information, contact the Klamath County Museum at (541) 883-4208.M

Public Safety Report:

Law Enforcement Numbers Remain Flat By Brian Smith, Joint Public Safety Advisory Committee (JPSAC) Chairman Klamath Falls, OR - Oregon State Police Superintendent says Klamath Falls should not expect additional law enforcement resources from the state. “I know Klamath Falls is interested in whether we’re sending more troopers to Klamath Falls, the answer is no, not in the foreseeable future,” said State Police Superintendent Chris Brown. Brown spoke to members of the Joint Public Safety Advisory Committee at length in their Thursday meeting. “If we had money, I’d hire more, but I can’t just move someone from Salem and uproot their lives and bring them to Klamath Falls,” said Brown. Brown continued, “The fact is, I don’t anticipate any hiring at all, except to replace retiring officers.” Members had been asking for clarification as to whether the State Police could provide more law enforcement to make up for the declining resources at the Klamath County Sheriff’s Department. Brown explained strategically the State Police decided to prioritize and preserve their forensics resources because that is an area of uniqueness they feel best helps local entities. The Oregon State Police have about half as many officers state wide currently than in 1980. Members of the committee also formed committee’s to work on both public education/outreach and vetting/researching various long term funding options including tax levy’s, taxing districts and cooperative/consolidation agreements, among others. Information about the meetings and work is available on the City and County websites as well as on The public is invited to attend the Committee meetings held every Thursday from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at the Klamath County government center. People are invited to email questions/comments/ concerns to Emails will be forwarded to the proper committee member and answered within 72 hours. The Community Public Safety Advisory Committee is comprised of elected officials, department stakeholders and volunteer citizens. The group’s mission is: “We commit to objectively evaluate with openness and transparency, options for the longterm viability of public safety. Our goal will be to advocate for the solution that best ensures a cost effective and complete public safety system for our community’s future.” M

By LT Jerry Hollis, LPHS We are off to a very successful start of the 2011-2012 school year, and hope that your son or daughter will be back to continue their Navy Jr ROTC experience. All programs are up and running with many returning members to our drill and color guard teams. Our focus this year is on Community Service, with projects underway that include Sparrow Clubs of Central Oregon, La Pine Community Kitchen, American Legion Post 45, and firewood for the elderly and disabled sponsored by Peak Performance. To date we have completed 536 hours of our 2000 hour goal. Let us know where we can help! Basic Leadership Training was held at the National Guard training facilities in Redmond and Prineville 21-23 October with over 40 cadets participating. This was an incredible opportunity for our cadets to learn basic NJROTC skills, and utilize NG simulators and confidence courses. The schedule for the Cascade Mountains League Drill Competitions has had some major changes. The La Pine High School NJROTC competition scheduled for November 19th has been moved to February 4, 2012. 2011-2012 Drill Competition Schedule 19 November 2012 - MT View HS, Bend, OR 14 January 2012 - Walla Walla HS, Walla Walla, WA 04 February 2012 - La Pine HS, La Pine, OR 03 March 2012 - East Valley HS, Yakima, WA 2 state Championships There will be 15 high school JROTC programs from Washington and Oregon participating.

Three Rivers School

A great school year is underway here at Three Rivers School. In September, we held a wonderful Open House event during which we celebrated the opening of our new gym, our new middle school wing and the dedication of our conference room to long-time supporter, Marilyn Myers. In October, our PTA organized and sponsored an incredible Fall Carnival. We also received news of our Outstanding rating from the State of Oregon on the 2010-2011 School Report Card. Only 28% of schools in Oregon received an Outstanding rating. And now, winter and the holidays are upon us. The Three Rivers Family Access Network (FAN) advocate, Jenn Reuter, is ready to see how FAN can help our school families who may be needing some extra help. Jenn can be reached at 541-3553067. FAST Camp (Fun After School Time) is Three Rivers School’s after school care program and is organized by the Sunriver Owners Association. Camp starts when school gets out and is open until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. FAST Camp provides lots of fun, field trips, snacks and help with homework. For more information, contact SROA at 541-593-2442. Three Rivers School is the grateful recipient of ongoing support from many community members and organizations. They help provide critical resources and supplies to help enrich our students’ experiences here at school. Recently, Blondie’s pizza donated pizzas to our middle school fall athletics teams, Sunriver Christian Fellowship donated 4 large bags of winter coats, Sunriver Books and Music donated an order of books to help us compete in the Battle of the Books program and a generous community member purchased a Sunriver Nature Center annual membership that Three Rivers families may use. We say thank you!

“Gratitude” “Gratitude”

“Gratitude” Authored by Angeles Arrien The insights in these CDs are priceless, and life changing. As I listened, I began to change. Gratitude is a life changing way of thinking. It took me out of the fixation of what is not working in my life, and into what is working. When I realized that alot IS working in my life, I opened the “door” to my faith, and I felt prosperous. - Sandy Jones Newberry Eagle Editor in Chief

Interdigital pododermatitis is inflammation of the skin between the pads of the paws. Trauma from ice-covered snow causes irritation and secondary bacterial or yeast infections. Longhaired dogs have extra hair underneath their paws that can cause little snowballs to form that pull on the skin and cause inflammation. Avoiding deep and icecovered snow can help prevent interdigital pododermatitis. Protective booties as illustrated in the picture are available at Sebastian’s Healthy Pet and Food Supply in Sunriver. Hypothermia is a serious condition that if left untreated can result in death. Very old, very young, and shorthaired animals are at a higher risk in frigid conditions. An animal suffering from hypothermia will be weak, shivering, stumbling, or possibly collapsed. If you suspect your pet is suffering from hypothermia, wrap the animal in thick blankets, crank up the heat in the car, and seek veterinary attention immediately. Notify the office ahead of time so warmed intravenous fluids and a warm enclosure will be ready. During the winter my dogs are out at first light to help themselves to a morning backrub in the snow. Watching them play warms my heart and makes me love them more. They remind me that life is fun and to be grateful for simple pleasures, like playing in the snow. Please enjoy another visit from La Nina this winter, but be careful. Sunriver Veterinary Clinic is open Mon. through Fri. from 8:30am – 5:00pm. M

Dear Aunt Sneezy It’s so easy to...

What are your problems? Write in, today! Email to: Aunt Sneezy is insightful, experienced, and wise.

Dear Aunt Sneezy: I am a very busy person. I am busy because I am trying to make my monetary ends meet and stay on top of things. I go to school and have a couple of businesses. I feel very grouchy, sometimes because of this. I also like to have fun and relax. I love people. But! with so much to do and take care of, I don’t have time to return many personal phone calls, or socialize much. Sometimes when people walk into my place of work and sit down to talk (not about work) I feel really upset. I don’t know how to manage my time in my office with people interruptions. Consequently, I “hole up” at home and work. What should I do about these problems? Signed, Bizzy & Dizzy Dear Bizzy and Dizzy: Time is the only thing that is truly ours, and that we can spend. It is our true asset. Spending time wisely is a phenominal balancing act. If we do not spend time with loved ones, we are bankrupting our spiritual lives. If we do not nurture new friends we are stunting are own growth. Take two hours out of your week to call and chat with friends and family. You have 168 hours in the week, spend two. The interest on the time spent will give back dividends. Tell the folks that come into chat that you really are glad to see them, but you are behind schedule and will call them at home. You have the right to say I’m busy right now. Good luck. Dear Aunt Sneezy: My husband and I have been married for over 20 years. Our intimacy has never really grown into what I have felt I needed. Rather than being intimate, we are very close friends. He is very comfortable with this. I have accepted it. I was told by a pyschiatrist, that knew both of us, that he understood my needs for more closer intimacy, and

let us do it for you.

my husband’s fear of it. I have never had a very romantic relationship. I have always wanted one, to the point that I feel a loss in my life. Do other people feel this way? And is deep romance a pipe dream? Does it exist for others? Signed, Missing Out? Dear Missing Out: Over twenty years of marriage is a wonderful accomplishment. It takes quite a partnership for that length of marital time. The subject of intimacy is very subjective. What I think you are talking about is exciting physical attraction. Most people I have known that have had a long term marriage agreed that friendship is what makes a marriage last. If you want to keep your marriage, relax, enjoy your husband. Looking for love in all the wrong places has never worked for a strong marital partnership. Look inside and find out what is bothering you about you. You may need to get counseling. Good luck, dear.
