St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Baker City welcomed the community to an open house Friday to show off its newly remodeled lobby area, Women's Breast Health Suite and auxiliary gift shop. The remodeledentryway provides easieraccesstothehospital'sadmittingstafFand aroomier waiting area for patients and visitors. The gift shop, which is operated by the volunteers of the hospital auxiliary, has moved to a new space straight down the hallway from the lobby. And the Women's Breast Health Suite is situated just across the hall from the radiology department in spaceformerly occupied by medical records. The process forpatients arriving at the hospital for a mammogram hasn't changed much with the remodeling. They still will arrive through the

front door and check in with the admitting staf, who will direct them to the radiology department and then to awaiting area. In the past, patients wound their way through the radiology depart-


ment to a small room that allowed very little space for patients and technicians to interact.

Three small wildfires were started Sunday south-southwest of Baker City, possibly caused by storms in the Baker County area Saturday. The largest of the three fires was the 12-acre Rail Gulch Fire, which started at 2:51 p.m. Sunday six miles south-southwest of Unity. Fire officials said the blaze, burning in grass, timber and slash, was lightning-caused. A 1-acre human-caused fire was reported 11 miles south-southwest of Baker City at 5:21 p.m. Sunday.

Ci installs mile markers on Leo Adler Pathway • Quarter-mile markers designed to help pathway users track their travels By Lisa Britton For the Baker City Herald

Now those who use the Leo Adler Memorial Parkway can easily track their distance with new markers that were installed Friday. The markers are placed at quarter-mile intervals measured from Hughes Lane. The spur to the Baker Sports Complex has its own markers, also measured from Hughes Lane. For instance, if you start at Hughes, it is eight-tenths of a mile to the Sports Complex. If you follow the path from

Hughes Lane to Bridge Street iwithout detouring to the Sports Complex, the distance is 1.9 miles. The markers are a project of the Baker City Parks Department, in cooperation with the Powder River Correctional Facility. The wooden markers were designed and manufactured at PRCF, and each is etched with a different animal or fish. The parksdepartment provided the materials, and PRCF did not charge for the work. The markers were a suggestion from a community member, said Joyce Bornstedt, technical administration supervisor for Baker City Public Works. She said funding for the materials came from the budget allocatedforimprovements to the Leo Adler Memorial Parkway.

TURNING BACK THE PAGES 50 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 2, 1964 The S 8rW Repair of Baker, owned by Bob Scarbrough and LesterWells, is now prepared to construct truck beds under a"kit" plan that was developed by the Commercial Welding Company of Baker, according to information presented at the breakfast meeting Tuesday of the Chamber of Commerce Industrial Committee. Scarborough and Wells told committee members that they are still experimenting with the truck bed "kit"construction, building some for display, but they are ready to produce for consumer purposes. 25 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 1, 1989 Eight inmates from the Department of Corrections Release Center in Salem arrived in Baker today to work on several construction projects at the Powder River Correctional Facility. The inmates will be housed at the Baker County Jail during their stay, according to Dan Johnson, superintendent of the Baker prison. Johnson said new eight- to 10-person crews will be brought to Baker throughout construction of the 150-bed labor camp and alcohol/drug treatment center in northwest Baker. It is scheduled to open in November. 10 YEARS AGO from the Baker City Herald June 2, 2004 Jay Carr measures rain in dollars, not inches. And during the latter half of May the drops fell too fast in Baker County for anyone but Bill Gates' accountant to keep up. "That was a multimillion-dollar rain," said Carr, an agriculture expert from the Oregon state University Extension Service. He was referring to the series of storms that saturated much of Baker County between May15 and Memorial Day. Those deluges boosted the monthly rain tally to 1.67 inches at the Baker City Municipal Airport — a bit more than the monthly average of 1.41 inches. ONE YEAR AGO from the Baker City Herald June 10, 2013 Baker City and the Baker City Employees Association, BCEA, have reached a tentative labor agreement that calls for 1-percent raises during the first two years and an increase of up to1.25 percent the third year. Baker City Councilors will decide whether to ratify the contract when they meetTuesday at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1655 First St. BCEA members, most of whom work in the public works department, have ratified the contract, City Manager Mike Kee wrote in his weekly report to the councilors compiled Friday.

Implementation for landscape-sizerestoration projects in at-risk areas won't begin until next year, said Laurence.'%e are looking at opportunities to use that authority in the future." Though no specific areas have beenidentifi ed,Laurence said the insect and disease situation map turns "pretty red up there" in Wallowa County."In the next 15 to 20 years we should be able to get in there and do some work to stop outbreaks." This includes not just where it is evident that disease and insects are killing trees, but where there may be trouble spots in the future, said Laurence. The fight between litigators stopping logging on national forests and legislation passed by Congress has been going on for nearly 30 years. Endangered species listings have slowed down timber harvest while Congress has enacted laws like the Healthy Forests Act during the Bush administra-

tion and approved salvage logging sales in the 1990s under Clinton. "One of the goals of our Regional Forester Kent Connaughton is to stop that pendulum from swinging back. We are talking about the needforrestoration. Through the collaborative meetings there is more understanding than in the past. It'sa pretty exciting time to be around and it fits in with the Forest Plan to double harvest." Warness said the implications for the sawmill industry aregood.'%e anticipate thistype ofrestoration work will increase a little bit by-products and supply from theuse ofcategorical exclusions and the Healthy Forests process. It's a quick fix to a specific area. We are looking to Congress to provide a permanent system to manage the forest the way it needs to be managed in the future, to increase employmentand reduce fi re danger."

BLM estimates there are 40,600 wild horses and burros on federal rangeland in 10Western states— 14,000 more than the agency maintains the land can sustain. About half of the mustangs are in Nevada. BLM removed about 8,000 of the animals in 2012 but only about 4,000 last year, due in part to budget constraints. The Farm Bureau argues the overpopulation"hassevere impacts on the health of the horses as well as the ecological health and sustainability of Nevada's rangelands."

Serving Baker County since 1870

Write a letter


wee ea eaves sour ase Editorial from The (Bend) Bulletin:

Former Chief Clerk of the Oregon House Ramona Line was the only person who benefited from a 2007 bill that tweaked Oregon's Public Employees Retirement System. She also helped write the legislation. Does that smell funny to you? Thanks to the reporting of The Oregonian, we know all that and more. In 2007, legislators added an amendment to a bill revising the state's pension system. Like most things having to do with PERS, it's complicated. But, basically, Line benefited financially. Line had cashed out her PERS account in 1981, when she was let go from the state. Eventually she returnedand served as chiefclerk for 30 years. The amendment set up a short window for'Line to buy backpension account balances she had previously cashed out with money she rolled over from the state's deferred compensation plan," the story said. The legislative change could have netted her at

least another$130,000 in PERS benefits. What's doubly troubling is that some 126 other PERS members could have benefited from the amendment'snarrow language. PERS never notified any of them. So Line was the only one who benefited. Line was a fixture in the House, monitoring bills and parliamentary proceedings and arbitrating disputes. She had retired last year but stayed on as chief parliamentarian. She needed to be above reproach. In this case, she should be reproached. House Speaker Tina Kotek asked Line to resign as The Oregonian was investigating the matter. Line did. But compelling a retired employee to resign with

a $130,000bonus doesn'tseem likem uch punishment. Line's excuses are laughable. Line claims if she had known she would have been the onlybeneficiary,"I probably would not have done it." She says she didn't meet the technical definition

of alobbyist."I did notlobby, "shesaid. Helping to write the language when you stand to benefit is not lobbying?

Oh, please. Oregonians do not want that kind of weaseling from their state employees.

oar wi Anyone following the Baker School District knows we have been through a lot in the past few years. Boards of directors are comprised ofpeoplew ith different backgrounds, temperaments and agendas and go through periods of peace, aswellasdissent. Yet everyboard member provides clear thinking in some area of expertise. For the past three years, Mark Henderson has given the Baker School District board astrong orientation in practical business sense and clear thinking. While he is now leaving the board for new business opportunities, it is worth reviewinghisgood record ofserviceon the board, since a review would not only say something about Mark, but also reveal important things about the board.

GUEST EDITORIAL Editorial from The Los Angeles Times: As calls for his ouster spread, it's become clear that Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki has lost the confidence of congressional leaders, whose support he needs for the significant reforms required to improve the VA's healthcare system. He should resign in the interests of those veterans, to whom he is undeniably devoted. Shinseki has been under scrutiny since it was revealed that the VA hospital in Phoenix manipulated records to hide the nearly four-month wait for veterans to get an appointment; some fear that patients may have died while awaiting care. A report fiom the VA's Office of Inspector General this week said the practice of falsifying wait times was widespread. And a top VA official admitted that the agency had ignored multiple warnings that medical facility officials were gaming the system to make it appear they were meeting the goal of getting veterans appointments within two weeks.

Shinseki should have recognized the problem earlier, and he failed as a leader when he established tough performance goals without providing the oversight to ensure the system could actually meet those goals. Yet the VA's troubles are not all Shinseki's fault, nor will his departure, by itself, do much to solve them. The VA has been confionting systemic challenges for decades, and it has struggled mightily in recent years to keep pace with a surge of veterans seeking care. Today, the VA operates1,700 healthcare sitesand serves more than 8 million veterans a year. The regulations are so clunky and complicatedthatittakestw oyearstotrain an employee to process claims. And the agency was slow to move fiom a paperbased system: It switched to electronic claims processing only last year. Soldiers returning from a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, along with Vietnam War-era veterans and even a few from earlier conflicts, have increased the VA's patient load. Then the Obama

administratio n broadened coverage, making it easier for veterans to file claimsforpost-traumatic stressdisorder, illnesses linked to Agent Orange exposure and other harder-to-diagnose maladies. Those are important changes thatextended servicestodeserving veterans. But they've introduced even more patients and more complexity into a healthcare system that was not prepared to handle such demands. Shinseki has served longer than any ofhispredecessors,and there isunderstandablefrustration thathisdepartment remains mired in backlogs after six years ofhis leadership. If anything, however, the lesson of Shinseki should not be that he failed but rather that the secretary alone can't fix the VA. The same congressi onalleaderswho are now demanding Shinseki's resignation should commit to swift confirmation of a successor, and to cooperating with the next secretary to untangle the longstanding and systemic problems inside the agency.

Measles,ThoughtToBeEradicated, Returns

regonmirroisnationinmeasles ByAndrew Clevenger WesCom News Service

WASHINGTON — The number of reported measles cases in the U.S. during 2014, including five in Oregon, has already exceeded every year's full total since 2000, when the disease was considered eliminated in the U.S., accordingto data released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. M ost of thisyear's288 casesare attributable to a few large outbreaks, including in Ohio, New York and California, with 15 outbreaks accountingfor79 percent of the cases. All told, 18 states, including Oregon, have reportedcasesofm easles. M ost of thecases are traceable to someone bringing measles back after traveling to a country where the diseaseismore prevalent,said Dr. Paul Cieslak, medical director for Oregon's immunization program. "Most of the country has been like Oregon, where you'll see transmission for a generation or two," and the original sick person will infectone or tw ootherpeople,

"You're stillfinding that most fothe people who are getting measles are unvaccinated. That means the vaccines are

working." — Dr. Paul Cieslak, medical director, Oregon immunization program

but it doesn't spread much beyond that, Cieslak said."It diesout pretty soon.Itdies outbecause thereisa lack of susceptibles." Oregon's five cases include an infant in Multnomah County and four cases in Marion County who were all immunized, had close contact with one another and were in contact with someone who had been overseas, he said. 'You're still finding that most of the people who are getting measles are unvaccinated," with the majority of cases occurring in the 6 percent of the population that hasn't been vaccinated, Cieslak said."That means the vaccines are working." Oregon had six cases last year, he said. Dr. Kenneth Carlson,

president of the Oregon Pediatric Society, said infants who may not have yet been vaccinated and people with compromised immune systems or other chronic health issues are most at risk from the disease. "One of the things that ditferenti atesmeasles from otherinfect ious diseasesis how highly contagious it is," he said. Five minutes sitting next to someone in a waiting room could be enough to pass along the infection, he said. "Most people who get measles will recover. But a percentage will not," he said. Before the introduction of a measlesvaccine in 1963, between 3 and 4 million peoplecontracted the disease each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Of those, 400 to 500 died and 48,000were hospitalized. Thanks largely to vaccination, measles was considered "eliminated" in the United States in 2000, meaning there was an absence of continuous transmission for a 12-month period. In addition to protecting individuals who have been immunized, vaccines create herd immunity,

where diseases don't spread because of a lack of susceptible hosts. Since 2000, the yearly number of cases nationwide has been more than 200 once, in 2011. Most years, the total was fewer than 100. "This is an area where vaccination is our most effective tool," said Carlson. Importation of the disease by someone who has traveled abroad,particularly to countries without strong vaccination programs, still poses the greatest threat ofinfection, he said. "The vaccine is working; we don't have a lotofevidence of waning immunity," added Cieslak."I continue to bel ieve thatmeasles has been a great public health victory." But Cieslak remains concerned about Oregon's increase in nonmedical exemptions to vaccination requirements, when parents can choose not to vaccinate their child on religious, philosophical or personal grounds. At 6.4 percent, Oregon has the highest rate of unvaccinated kindergartners in the country.

STATE BRIEFING Court rejects title of liquor sales initiative PORTLAND iAPl — Oregon's Supreme Court has rejected the ballot title for an initiative petition that would change the way liquor is sold in the state. Grocery chains such as Fred Meyer and Safeway hope to privatize liquor sales in Oregon, where only state-regulated liquor stores are currently permitted to sell distilled spirits. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum certified a ballot title that includes the phrase "wholesale sales tax." Although the tax is on sales between wholesalers and retailers, the Supreme Court agreed with supporters of the initiative that voters might incorrectly think it's a tax imposedatthepointofa retailsale. The court sent the title back to the attorney general for modification.

Oregon prison back on lockdown PORTLAND iAPl — Hours after the Oregon Corrections Department said an Eastern Oregon prison was back to normal operations after fights earlier in the week, the prison returned to lockdown status Friday night after a disturbance involving 14 inmates. Corrections spokeswoman Liz Craig said early Saturday that visits at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton have been canceled until further notice. Visits had been scheduled to resume Saturday. Craig said no additional details were immediately avail-

able. Multiple inmate fights broke out Monday night at dinnertime. Forty-six inmates were put in disciplinary segregation. Two stafFmembers suffered injuries. Craig says an investigation continues to determine the cause ofboth Monday's fights and Friday's incident. The medium-security prison houses approximately 1,700 men.

North coast closed to mussel harvest SALEM iAPl — Oregon officials say the north Oregon coasthas been closed to recreational mussel harvesting due to high levels of marine toxins. The closure announced Friday extends from the south jetty of the Columbia River south to the north jetty in Newport. It's due to elevated levels of paralytic shellfish poisoning toxins and includes mussels on all beaches, rocks, jetties, and at the entrance to coastal bays. Shellfish contaminated with the toxins can cause severe illness or even death. The toxins are produced by algae.

ug Crooked River By Dylan J. Darling WesCom News Service

The Crooked River upstream of Prineville Reservoir is already running low, and portions of the river could go dry this summer because of drought. A gauge near where the river enters the reservoir reads a tenth of normal for this time of year — 30 cubic feet per second as opposed to 300 cfs — said Jeremy Gi5n, Deschutes Basin watermaster for the Oregon Water Resources Department. "If this holds course we could potentially see dry reaches in July, which is fairly extraordinary," he said. It's not unusual for parts of the river upstream of the reservoir to go dry, GiIIm said, but not until August. Gov. John Kitzhaber's office in March declared a drought emergency in Crook County, opening the possibility of federal drought relief. In the couple of months since, more rainfall has helped fill reservoirs around Crook County, but little snow has fallen in the mountains. The light snowfall this winter and early this spring is causing the low flow in the river and other streams. ''We are very low, but we are going to go much lower," Giffin said. The river going dry could happen in the next 45 days, or by mid-July, he said last week. The water situation in the county will most affect the hundreds of ranchers and growers who rely on water upstream of the reservoirs, tending to land around Post and Paulina. GiSn said they11 likely be limited to one cutting ofhay this year, rather than the typical two or three.

Rupp took over the race for the final two laps, building a sizable gap with his challengers and putting the crowd at Hayward Field on its feet. Upon crossing the finish line, he was embraced by coach Alberto Salazar. "I felt great, so I went for it," he said ofhis all-out sprint for the record. Rupp claimed the silver medal in the 10,000 at the London Olympics, behind training partner Mo Farah. Farah, who made his debut in the London Marathon last month, was among those who watched the race, shouting "C'mon Galen!" on the final lap. Both Rupp and Farah train under Salazar. Rupp is a local favorite because he grew up in Portland and went to Oregon. Hayward is the home field for the Ducks. "Anytime I get to run here it is really special for me," he sald.

MIAMI — For the entirety of the regular season, the supremacy of the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference was brought into serious question by the Indiana Pacers. Then came the playoffs. And the question was answeredemphatically.

Finding your own

gardening passion What's your gardening passion? What inspires you the most when you decide to go outside and get your hands in the dirt? For many, it's simply that inner connection they feel with the soil. You see it, smell it, improve it, and plant seeds that nourish your body and, inevitably, your soul. Do you have your own memory garden this year? You know, plantings that are inspired by what your grandmother grew, or your mother, even your dad. My dad loved carnations yet I find I am incredibly unsuccessful in growing them so I stick to other smaller-blooming varieties of dianthus. I am able to partake of the same cinnamon aroma without the heavy-blossomed heads bending and breaking in the wind. And the carnations? I buy them and place them on his grave. A bittersweet memory, indeed, but one I still cherish. I hope you have yours. I am hearing a common complaint this spring about the amount of winterkill we experienced during the extreme cold temperatures we were hit with in December. I lost many perennials to rot, something I hadn't anticipated. SeeGarden/Page 2B



Revisiting words that have fallen out of favor It was before Memorial Day last month that I was telling my young fiiend that my friend Orella was planning,atage 95,to m ake her annual visit here from Tillamook down by the ocean, to visit the cemeteries with flowers and take in visiting friends all along the way. I was looking forward to the visit, I told her. In explanation of who Orella was, I said that she had owned Zuber Hall. Zuber Hall? Yes, the building that isn't there anymorebehind the Sacajawea Annex. You know, in the U.S. National Bank's parking lot on Washington Avenue behind the Cock and Bull Restaurant. As we made connection in the location of the Zuber Hall, I felt like I was in cahoots with Kilroy as I peeked overthefence oftime ,so Itold herso. "Cahoots?" That was a word we used to use to m ean that we both were now on the same page, that we understood each other. Back during World War II in the 1940s, only some 75 years ago, we used to go to Zuber Hall to dance on Saturday nights, I explained. I then told Missy that Orella had taken over the hall when it was sold and turned it into Orella's Garden fordinner and dancing, and then later, into a roller-skating rink. Then marriage and children, moving away with her family to go into the dairy business. SeeDory/Page 2B

A healthier, homemade alternative to the classic Klondike ice cream bar.

By Karen Kain A big trend in today's diet is called the Paleo way of eating. It is referred to as a caveman diet; ifa caveman couldn'teatit, neither can you. This includes eating meat, fish, nuts, leafy greens, veggies, fruitand seeds,omitting pasta, cereal and candy. You don't have to keep track ofhow much you eat or count calories. The thought is that our bodies have not adjusted to eating so many grainsand today's dietsarefull of grains. As obesity remains an ongoingbattle Iw asexcited to try a paleo, vegan, sweet dessert. The weather is heating up, and providing healthy choices for summer snacks will be in demand. Who doesn't have that childhood memory of eating ice cream in the summer? Here is my version of a Klondike Barit is easy to make, healthy and delicious. I think you will find your kiddo's sweet tooth fully satisfied and asking for more.

Klondike bars, fresh from the freezer and ready for a coating of chocolate. Chocolate Coating: 13Tablespoons cocoa powder 8Tablespoons melted coconut oil 1/2 Cup maple syrup Line a casserole-sized pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a blender combine the ice cream ingredients; blend until they are well combined. Pour the batter into the lined dish. Place in a freezer until the ice cream is

frozen solid, 4-6 hours. Remove the pan from the freezer and pull out the cream via the parchment paper. Using a solid knife cut the ice cream into 8 squares, then return to the freezer while you prepare the chocolate mixture. Whisk together the melted coconut oil, and cocoa powered and maple syrup, breaking upthe clumps.You can add more cocoa powder for a darker

chocolate flavor or more maple for sweeter chocolate. Spoon the chocolate mixture over each ice cream bar, making sure to coat all sides evenly. Place the bars once they are coated on a plate lined with parchment paper and put back in the freezer. Once each bar is covered store in a sealed container in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!

It was one of those "ah-hah" moments that soon led us to realize that disc golfisoneofthefew activitiesthatan entire familyor group can enjoyregardlessofage, ability or skill. For those who aren't familiar with disc golf it's essentially a game of golf with a Frisbee-like disc. You tee off by throwing a discfrom a designated spot and try toget your disc in the basket or other target in as few throws possible. It's simple enough that almost anyone can play and complex enough that those who want can learn the technique and science that goes into each throw. If you have young kids have them follow you around the course with their own disc or even just a regular Frisbee to throw and chase. If you have a baby you can push him or her in a stroller from hole to hole. If you have older kids maybe they11 consider playing with you if they can get a head start so they don't actually have to be seen with you!

Oregon Department of Forestry Treesare avitalcomponent of healthy urban communities, giving area residents a multitude ofbenefits including clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat and psychological well-being. They screen harsh scenery and block noise from the urban environment and help reduce our heating and cooling bills. Trees also raise property values. Considering their many benefits, one might assume trees in our cities and communitiesreceivethebestofcare. Unfortunately, when it comes to tree pruning, this isn't always the case. First, a generalreminder: Ifthe trees in your yard are in need of pruning, it's often best to wait until early summer, after the leaves have been fully expanded for a few weeks. No matter what time of year, remember not to"top" your tree. Tree topping is the indiscriminate cutting back of tree branches to stubs. It's a common but detrimental practice that damages a tree's health and value. It weakens trees, making them vulnerabletoinsectsand disease,and shortens their longevity. Topping a tree removes much of the tree's "crown" ofleaves and branches. The loss offoliage starves thetree, which weakens the roots. Often, without its crown, a tree cannot protect its sensitive bark from damaging sun and heat. The result is the splitting of the bark and the death of branches.

Topping is expensive Each time a branch is incorrectly cut back to a stub, numerous long, skinny young shoots called water sprouts grow

Topping is ugly Unfortunately, a tree's 90-year achievement of natural beauty can be destroyed in a couple ofhours. Topped treesappear disfigured and mutilated. Sadly, once topped, a tree will never return to its natural shape and taper.

rapidly back to replace it. On the other hand, properly pruned trees require less maintenance since the work does not stimulate an upsurge of re-growth. And, proper pruning actually improves the health and beauty of a tree, saving you money in the long run. Using the Council of Tree and LandscapeAppraiser guidelines forevaluation,appraisers subtracthundreds of dollars from the value of a tree when it's been topped. And, not only do topped treesreduce property values,they also eventually increase liability because of safety issues. In many cities, topping of city-owned trees is banned because of the public safety factor and thepotential oflawsuits.

that I had used on an everyday basis were unknown to a young person and required explanation. Take a metal wood-burning kitchen stove lid lifter, for example. Yes,the end ofitslipped down into a hole in the cast-iron stove lid in order to lift it out of the way so we could stoke the fire to rearrange the burning wood or to adda pieceofwood to it. However, the stove also had a door on the front that you could open to add the wood that way as well. The mental picture of my mom's and dad's stove whereupon they perked coffee, fried eggs, cooked beans, and made all kinds of good things came immediately to mind. It had an oven that depended on how hot the fireburned and the amount of wood used to control and keep the temperature just right for baking cakes, pies, cookies, biscuits,and loaves ofbreadtojusttheright doneness. And, how a toothpick stuck in now and then told

Kristin Ramstad, urban forester with the Oregon Department of Forestry, hopespeople can learn toappreciate the advantagesofproper pruning and give up thepractice oftree topping."Topping oftencreates high-risk trees,butproper treepruning usually createssafer, healthier, and more beautiful trees," says Ramstad. Trees make important social, environmental and economic contributions to the sustainability of our cities and our quality oflife. Properly managed, healthy urban trees signify time and money well-spent, are a good indicator of a healthy community and will repay you with benefits many times over. If the trees on your property are in need of pruning but you're unsure just how to go about it, contact a certified arborist, your local university Extension agent, or the Oregon Department of Forestry's urban forestry program in Salem.

Light a medium-hot fire to grill this arugula pizza.


Adackyarddlaie that dakesgiua By Leah Eskin Chicago Tnbune

A campfire sounded friendly, so I bought a fire pit. After I twisted the metal feet onto the metal bowl, I was stumped. Fire doesn't require feet. It does, however, require stumps where campers can slump, sticks in hand, and burn marshmallows. I checked back at the supermarket: no stumps. Later, while driving a country road, I saw a sign claiming free stumps. I pulled over and tried to lift one. Free, apparently, to anyone towing a crane. Then one night at a dinner party I mentioned my stump problem to my neighbor, Andrew. Not stumps, he corrected, rounds. The next afternoon Andrew pulled up in his truck. He heaved six rounds into place around the fire pit. That night we all slumped on the stumps. We burned marshmallows. We stared at the stars. Andrew pointed out pale Jupiter and fiery Mars. Which is when I noticed that the wood chips, under the feet, were on fire. After we'd doused the flames I decided I prefer the oldfashioned ground-level campfire. But I'm so glad I've got those sturdy rounds. And a round of sturdy friends.

you when the cake or scallopedpotatocasserolewas done. Funny how those memories stay so very vivid when you talk about a woodburning range's lid lifter, its warming oven up above the cooking surface. It makes you want to be there in person in that time and place all over again, for the sight and fragrance are so real these many years later. I guess young folks will have their memories of their childhood days, with just as much fervor over gas or electric stoves and microwaves whose temperatures are controlled and bells let you know when ready-to-eat

GARDEN Continued ~om Page 1B Most perennials, hardy in all of our tri-county region, are usually impervious to the cold, but this winter while the ground was still frozen, all the warmth of February caused inches of water to accumulate on top of the soil and effectively drown the crowns. I lost plants that have succeeded under much harsher conditions to crowndrownmg. The only remedy I can think of is to elevate, in intervals, thebedstheperennials are in. I'm not looking forward to the manual labor involved but the alternative is to not grow the plants I like. That's not an option. Another regular reader of this column asked me to give some advice about all the winter-kill of trees in our area. Hers were particularly hard hit and have multiple dead limbs. This presents quite a challenge when the trees are towering and mature. Dead limbs will inevitablycause problems besidesjustnothavingleaves. They will actually excrete stresspheromones that alert damaging insects to their plight, effectively giving them another enemy to try to

overcome in their weakened condition. I have noticed many paperwhite birch in our area with at least half-dead crowns, or worse. If more than half of your tree is dead, your best option is to remove it and plant anew. I know this is difficult especially if you have enjoyedthat particulartree for many seasons. Replacement is a better option than butchering, however. If someone recommends topping the tree, beware! iseerelated story ahovel. Topping a tree is one of the most horrid things you could do to it and any well-trained and certified arborist would strongly advise against it. There are several reputable companies in our areas, you can find them on the Internet and in local phone directories. Just remember, as we begin the month of June, if your trees aren't leafed out yet, they won't be in another month. It's time to take inventory of damage. Do your researchand try to select,if you have to, hardier replacement stock. But be patient! Young trees may reward you, no doubt, for years to come. Until next time, get some more lettuce sown! Succession planting is the best idea for continual fresh eating!

Some of us grill throughout the year, happily tending to the flames and the food as flakes of snow fall from the night sky and sizzle on the grate. For people who are slightly more sane, though, the grilling season began last weekend. As of 2012, some 71 percent of all Americans who own grill s(and 80 percent of us do) were expected to use them on Memorial Day, accordingtothefolksatW eber Grills. There is something primal about grilling, the combination of flame and raw meat (or vegetable or frtut or even pizza) that tugs at the caveman within and makes us feel unified with our wild ancestors. It awakens inside us the satisfaction felt by early man after a successful hunt, knowing they would be w ell fed for severaldays. And not to belabor the point, but grilling also happens to be delicious. Flame,fatand food.Itis cooking at its most elemental. It's easy, and it's a simple way to get big flavors out of food. And that may explain why, when we grill, we tend to gril lfoodsthatareeasy and require little preparation. The most commonly grilled foods are hot dogs, hamburgers and steak, in that order. Each is easy, none requires much work or thought at all. Each is adequate in its own way, but nothing special. That's why we're not going to talk about any of them. Except steak. We're going to talk about steak. Before that, though, let's begin with chicken. Throughout the South is a fast-food chain called Pollo Tropical. With its Cuban-inspired flavors, it may be my favorite fast food anywhere. Grilled chicken, which is served with rice and beans, is the signature dish. The chicken is clearly marinated in some combination of citrus juices, but after eating it several times I still didn't know what they were. That was before the invention of the Internet. I know now, or at least suspect, that they marinate their chicken in a combination of pineapple juice and bitter orange juice. And therein lay a problem. Bitter orange juice is not impossible to find here, but

GRILLED CORN ON THE COB Yield: 1 serving Robert Cohen I St. Louis post-Dispatch

Grilling season is here. This Terrorized Steak involves creating a paste of fresh rosemary, fresh marjoram, plenty of garlic, olive oil, salt, tvvo kinds of pepper and cognac. it isn't easy, either. So we simply substituted two parts oflime juice and one part of orangejuiceforthe bitter orange. That may sound like an awful lot of lime juice, but apparentlybitterorange juice is, in fact, quite bitter. I made it, and I grilled it, and you cannot argue with the result, a bright and lively citrus flavor that perfectly accompanies the chicken and the light char from the grill. And it is not bitter at all. About that steak: My favorite way of making steak in the whole world comes from a cookbook put out by the San Francisco restaurant Rose Pistola. It's called TerrorizedSteak,and itinvolves creatinga paste offresh rosemary, fresh marjoram, plenty of garlic, olive oil, salt, two kinds of pepper and cognac. You have to respect any recipe that uses a splash or two of cognac. This recipe is sublime; you get a powerfully flavorful piece of meat with a superb outer char and a hearty, perfectl y cooked interior.I have madethe dish many timestowonderful effect,so naturally on my last trip to San Francisco I stopped in at Rose Pistola specifically to try its own version of Terrorized Steak. It wasn't terrible. It was just disappointing. I've had worse steaks, though not m any. Whatever they did to it, they didn't follow the recipe in their own cookbook, becausethat stuffisawesome. A well-grilled piece of meat, of course, deserves a well-grilled vegetable. Asparagus is always appropri-

ate, but I have been eating so much asparagus lately that Ireached instead forthe old reliable, grilled corn. Grilling corn is ridiculously easy. Soak corn, still in its husk, in water for at least 15 minutes. Place on a grill. Cook until done. Eat carefully — it's hot — and savor the deep, nutty flavor that comes from the grill. And because the grill was still hot, I decided to grill a dessert. I don't think I made up the idea of a grilled chocolate-and-marmalade sandwich, I believe I read about it some years ago, but Ihad wanted tomake one for some time. Simply spread marmalade liberally on one slice ofbread, and cover with an ounce or so of chocolate. Top with another slice ofbread, brush both sides with a little melted butter, and place on the grill. Cook on both sides until you get lovely grill marks on the bread and the m elted chocolate startsoozing out from the center. It is so good, you just might want to skip the meat and thevegetablesaltogether.

Note: Sour orangejuice is also called bitter orangejuice and TERRORIZED is often available at Hispanic STEAK food markets. Yield: 4 servings 1. Pat chicken dry. With edge of knife or mortar and pestle, mash together garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper until it forms a coarse paste. A sprinkling of kosher salt will help it form a paste, if necessary. Spread paste evenly over chicken. 2. Mix together sour orange juice and pineapple juice in a large bowl. Add chicken to the juices, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight. 3. Arrange grill for indirect cooking and heat to medium hot. Place chicken on the side of the grill away from the heat, and cover. Cook 40 to 50 minutes for white meat, 1 hour for

Spread the marmalade on the other slice, and put the slices together as a sandwich.

Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt, "/4 cup olive oil and 3 cups flour. Knead with a dough hook until smooth and elastic, about 3 minutes. Shape dough into a ball. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest until dough has doubled, about 1"/2 hours. Divide dough into 6 balls. Set balls on a lightly oiled baking sheet, cover with plastic and let rest until puffy, about 30 minutes. Dust each ball lightly with flour and roll out into an 8-inch round. Use right away or stack up, separated by parchment paper, slip into a zip-top bag and refrigerate. Chilled dough will produce a chewier but equally delicious, crust.

The Associated Press -

A company that has flown unmanned capsules to the Space Station unveiled a spacecraft designed to ferry up to seven astronauts to low-Earth orbit that SpaceX founder Elon Musk says will lowerthe costofgoing to space. The futuristic, cone-headed craft dubbed Dragon V2 featured landing legs that pop out and a propulsion system designed to land almost anywhere"with the accuracy of a helicopter," Musk said at the Southern California rocket builder's headquarters near Los Angeles International Airport. The technology would enable rapid reloading and reusabil ity ofthe spacecraft, he said. He noted that in the past, many rockets and space craft return to Earth in a fireball, rendering them unusable. 'You can just reload, propel it and fly again," Musk said. "This is extremely important forrevolutionizing accessto space because as long as we continue to throw away rockets and space crafts, we will never truly have access to space. IQ1 always be incredibly expensive." "If an aircraft is thrown away with each flight, nobody will be able to fly or very few icanl," he said.'The same is true with rockets and spacecraft." The capsule also features a bright, sleek interior with swing-up computer screens at thecontrolstation,a two-level seating system to

The spacecraft also has more powerful engines, better heat shields, the landing legs and backup parachutes to ensure a soft landing. In a NASA briefing with reporters last year, Musk said Dragon V2 would look futuristic like an"alien spaceship"and promised"it's going to be cool."

agency has said it wants U.S. companies to fill the void by 2017 and has doled out seed money to spur innovation. SpaceX — short for Space Exploration Technologies Corp.— has made four cargo runs to the giant orbiting outpostsome 200 milesabove Earth. Just last month, its Dragon capsule splashed into the Pacific, returning nearly 2 tons of science experiments and old equipment. Companies competing forthe rightto ferry station astronauts need to design a spacecraftthatcan seata crew of four or more and be equipped with life support systems and an escape hatch in case of emergency. SpaceX has said it's designing a seven-seat spacecraft.
