Leading the pack of 87 senior Bulldogs into the future are, front, Alex Hurst, left, and Raina Smull. Each of these graduates will step into the future with memories and friends with the ability and skills to find their own individual pathway in life. By Chris Collins
erry Peacock was in his element as he addressed the 87 graduating seniors of the Baker High School Class of 2014 assembled on the football field, and the family and fiiends who packed the stadium to honor them Sunday afternoon. 'There's a perfect storm a brewin'," Peacock joked with his audience."I've got a big audience, I've got a mic in my hand and I've got something you want — you're not going anywhere until I'm done." As he has done for the past 22 years as the big dawg on campus and the longest tenured high school principal in Oregon, Peacock reached out to the graduates with words of encouragement and high expectations and in the hope that each will find success. His address followed speeches by salutatorians Ryan Cashen and Brandon Ellwanger, and preceded remarks fiom valedictorians Samantha Searles and Ian Rasmussen. See Graduation/Bge 8A

A blueprintto create a merit-basedwage boost policy for a group of 16 nonunion Baker City employees will be on the City Council's agenda Tuesday rnght. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1655 First St. The proposal is a product ofdiscussion and debate during the city's budget committee meetings last month. The budget committee, which consists of the seven city councilors and seven city residents, rejected a proposed 1.5-percentcost-of-living pay raiseforthe 16 employees. But the City Council has the final say on the matter, and it appears thatfourof the seven councilors are in favoroftheme rit-based pay raise concept, City Manager Mike Kee said Friday. He said councilors Barbara Johnson, Mike Downing, Clair Button and Kim Mosier had talked with him about the concept. Baker City Mayor Richard Langrell said he knew there was some"talk" about the proposal. SeeRaiseslPage 8A

A groupof43bicyclists partici pating in a race that sounds more like a punishment than a sporting event will be riding through Baker City the next day or so. Some of them will, anyway. The leaders have already been through town after pedaling more than 580 miles in less than two days. The inaugural Trans Am Bike Race started Saturday morning at 5 o'clock in Astoria. It ends, 4,233 miles later, in Yorktown, Va. As youmight have figured based on that mileage, the racerouteisfarfrom the shortest way across the country. Nor did riders follow a directpath acrossOregon.

TURNING BACK THE PAGES 50 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 9, 1964 The city council last night accepted the first and second readings of an ordinance amendment making excessive motor noise a violation of the city traffic ordinance. An additional 35 traffic laws were also included within the ordinance amendment. The amendmenthas anemergency clause andwillbe adopted upon approval of its third and final reading at the next council session. In other action, the council accepted the Planning Commission's recommendation for an amendment to the city's mobile home ordinance. The amendment, which will be read for the first time at the next session, prohibits the parking of mobile homes in residential areas without the consent of100 percent of the surrounding property owners within 25 feet and 80 percent of the property owners within 200 feet. 25 YEARS AGO from the Democrat-Herald June 9, 1989 A potential site on 7000 acres east of Baker owned by John Bootsma is among the sites being considered by state officials for Gov. Neil Goldschmit's proposed "megaprison." The site, about1"/2 to two miles east of the Baker Valley Packing Co. plant, was offered to state officials by Bootsma, according to Brian Cole, Baker city/county economic developer. "It was offered strictly from an individual by John," Cole said. "The site has not yet been endorsed by the city or county." 10 YEARS AGO from the Baker City Herald June 9, 2004 Eltrym HistoricTheatre owner Rudyard Coltman said he might have to close the three-screen theater if Baker City's building official continues to insist that he install fire sprinklers. The Eltrym is the county's only theater. The city has not set a deadline for when the work must be completed. At an estimated $100,000 to $120,000, the sprinkler system is the most expensive of the modifications that Building Official Jim Sayers has ordered Coltman to make. ONE YEAR AGO from the Baker City Herald June 7, 2013 The reconstruction of Resort Street continues as warm weather marks the beginning of more community activities. The project is on schedule, but traffic issues in and around the project area, between Auburn Avenue and Campbell Street, have become more of a concern. "We've been trying to get the word out that businesses are remaining open on Resort Street during the street project," said Michelle Owen, the city's public works director. However, some drivers are having trouble understanding which blocks are open. Opening and closing streets as needed soon might have to give way to the use of concrete barricades, Owen sard.

LOCAL BRIEFING Two actors sought for 'Steel Magnolias'
By Tyler Leeds WesCom News Service
BEND — The Two Bulls Fire continued to burn two miles west of Bend Sunday, affecting6,180 acresof private and public lands by sundown. No portion of the fire was contained Sunday evening. Around 350 crew members focused Sunday on establishing what authorities described as a"preliminary line" down the east side and southern edge of the fire, an attempt to prevent the fire from moving closer toward the city. According to Lisa Clark, spokeswoman for the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center in Prineville, crews

GRADUATION Continued ~om Page1A Peacock, 58, warned the members of the Class of 2014 that they were about to leave the world of"I know," ithe response he's heard from many teenagers over the years when adults attempt to impart information to them), to the world of"Gee, I thought I knew." He offered some tools aimed at helping them cope with that new world they11 be entering. Peacock began by sharing the story of a king in a faraway land who asked his advisers to search for the "key to life."They did their research, analyzed information and finally presented the king with a large document that they said met his requirements. But the king said his subjects would never make it through such a dense volume and required the advisers to continue to condense the information. Finally, they returned to the king with just one sentence, which met with the king's approval. That one sentence provided the information the king's subjects, as well as the Class of 2014, would need to succeed, Peacock said. It's message was simple There ain't no free lunch," he said. "It's gonna require hard work," Peacock told the students of their efforts to achieve success. He urged them to"think like a new immigrant," those people who on coming to America worked hard to establish themselves with no benefits derived from their name or pastreputation.
RAISES Continued ~om Page1A But Langrell was unaware that an actual plan was down on paper for council review. ''We talked about it becausewe feltthereare some employees that didn't deserve a raise — not even a cost-of -living raise,and there aresome thatdid deserveit," Langrell said."But I didn't know anyone was going to fry to get Mike Kee to do it." Kee said he believes raises tied to the individual performance of employees is a good idea. "I think wage adjustments ought to be based on merit, period," he said. Councilor Barbara Johnson said she will support a meritbased wage hike. "I feel that it is a fairness issue," she said."People have not had that cost-of-living raise since 2011 and I feel we've talked about it in councilbefore.W eshould givethe city manager the money and the authority to give merit raises as he sees fit." Langrell sounded resigned when he spoke on the issue last week. "Like always citizens of Baker will say'Oh, look at what they are doing now,' and

And he quoted Lawrence Katz, a Harvard economist, who urges people to "think like an artisan" bringing a distinct flair, technique and pride to their work and the willingness to put their name on what they have produced. Peacock, who was raised by his grandparents in a town about the size of Baker City in the Florida panhandle, shared some ofhis granddaddy's words of wisdom to make his points and to add a touch ofhumor to his message to the graduates. Peacock said when he would begin feeling sorry for himself for all the work that was required ofhim as a child, his granddaddy, who he creditedwith a greatdealofwisdom despite having just a third-grade education, would say to him,"Boy, not all the milk you give is cream." Peacock said that was his granddaddy's way of telling him'You may do alotofstuffaround here,butit's not all good." Peacock urged the graduates to think like a waitress or a waiter, pointing to the example of the value-addedservice provided atthe El Erradero and Arceo's, two Baker City Mexican restaurants owned by the Arceo family. "Try to drink all of your water before they fill up your glass or eat all your chips before they snatch the
no one will come to the council meetings and complain," Langrell said. The meritbased raise concept may trace its roots to comments made by Councilor Dennis Dorrah during the budget committee hearings last month. Dorrah said he wasn't against raises for nonrepresented employees, but he felt there must be come mechanism — such as annual evaluations — to justify a pay boost.
about 200 homes west of the city, though that number was cut to 40 when residents from the Saddleback subdivision were allowed to return home Sunday evening. Nonetheless, that area was still on a Deschutes County SherifFs 0$ce Level II notice Sunday evening, meaning residents are asked to be ready to leave at a moment's notice. On Saturday, Clark said the fi resarebelieved to be human-caused, while noting two fires starting in the same area does not necessarily point to deliberate action — a few yearsago,the driverofa vehicle dragging a chain on U.S. Highway 20 accidentally sparkedfi ve separate blazes.
basket and bring you another one," he said, pointing to the excellent customer service for which the businesses are known. Peacock also warned the students that they will experience failure. "I hope you do," he said."If you're not failing, you're not frying." And he encouraged them to learn from their mistakes, rather than trying to run from them. An optimist will ask how he or she can improve next time, and take responsibility and be accountable for the failure, he said. Peacock also reminded the graduates that as Baker High School students they have learned to conduct themselves with"class." "It's the Baker High School way," he said.'We all have different definitions of class, but we all recognize it when we see it. "No matter what you choose to do in your life, do it with class," he said. "People recognize class." Peacock's granddaddy also brought him to the end of his speech, which lasted about 15 minutes, as he recalled his words,"Boy, when you get your milk bucket full, don't kick it over." 'That was his way of saying, 'once you thinkyou'vemade your point, sit down and be quiet' — I think I'll take his advice." Peacock is ending his tenure as BHS principal and will begin a new assignment next year as director of the newly organized Baker Technical Institute. His duties also will include supervision of Eagle Cap, the disfrict's innovative high school, housed at the North Baker Campus,
Councilor Mike Downing saidhe supportstheconcept of a merit-based payraise. Yet he also emphasized that a merit-based pay hike concept and acost-of-livingincrease plan are very different things. "I think a merit-based raise is in order," Downing said. "I think we need to have the merit-based in place ifit is warranted. What bothers me is the fact the unrepresented iemployeesl have not had a cost-of-living raise since 2011."

and he will work to develop a new GED program for the district. Assistant principal Ben Merrill has been named BHS principal. As Peacock prepared to present diplomas to the graduates one last time, Peacock noted that he has handed over more than 3,000 diplomas during his career with the school district. He thanked parents, stafFand the community for their support over the years. "It's been a greatride,"he said. Afterward, former students, parents, employees and family members rushed to shake his hand, give him a tearful hug, congratulate him
for a job iand a speech)well-done and toexpress theirappreciation for his hard work and dedication to Baker students over the years. Peacock said afterward that he enjoyed speaking and was honored to have been asked to address the graduates. "I enjoyed the heck out of it," he said."I hope I was able to impart a little wisdom." In introducing Peacock, Superintendent Walt Wegener noted that he has heard the principal refer to himself as "old guard." "He is gracious, kind, caring, competent and committed. When did thatbecome old guard?"Wegener asked. Peacock earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Auburn University in Alabama with a minor in chemistry. He then earned his master's degree in health education at Oregon State University in 1978 and began his teaching career at Huntington where he also served
Downing said the non-represented employees, because theyhave not received a costof-li ving boostin threeyears, have been shortchanged. "Everyone else, all three unions, they got raises. Why can't these people get one as well?" he asked. Councilor Kim Mosier said the discussion — and a draftpolicy — on merit-based raises is a natural outgrowth ofdiscussions atthe budget hearings.

He moved to the job of Brooklyn Elementary School principal in 1985 and was named BHS principal in 1992. Wegener noted that many of the parents of Sunday's graduating class had been students under Peacock's leadership in thedistrict. Peacock and his wife, Betty, have three children who also graduated from Baker High School during those years. "His contribution to this community is difficult to measure, but easy to see,"Wegener said.'This is a man who sells you a hot dog in January so the sports programs are healthy, who spends 28 hours on the roof in the middle of winter with high winds and cold so the students can completeacanned food project.This is a man who cares and walks that walk." In hervaledictory address,Samantha Searles added her thanks and appreciation to the principal and to retiring teacher Laura Miller along with teachers Kristopher Pepera and Sharon Defrees. In closing, she told the Class of 2014: "Ihope you find happinessand fulfill your goals with determination. And more than anything, I hope you find something in life that you care about as much as Mr. Peacock cares about Baker High School and that makes you as enthusiastic as Mrs. Miller is about chemistry."
'There are several people, Councilor Dorrah and others, who have said they just believe any increase should be linked to performances. That sounds like a cue to me that the Council should take it up," she said. Mosier also said she tasked Kee with developing a draft proposalforreview by the full Council. The plan, she said, is still very much in the preliminary stage.
'The policy change he is working on is not attached to any particular figure," Mosier said."Aproposalto attach increasesto m erit,to performance evalutions. What we are talking about right now is policy. I don't know how the other councilors will come down onit.Itdoesaddress the major concerns over increases, you know, that it is consistent with the things peoplewere saying atthe budget meetings."

wee or emone '? We're not opposed to the Baker County Compensation Board's proposal to make Commissioner Mark Bennett's position half-time instead of the current quarter-time, and to boost his annual salary from
$16,000 to $32,000. But we expect to see specific examples ofhow the taxpayers will benefit from the extra outlay of cash. Bennett and Commission Chairman Fred Warner Jr. have laid out a compelling case for the change. In particular, they point out that commissioners need to understand the complex relationships among state and federal agencies that have a direct effect on Baker County's economy and its residents. The federal government, after all, manages almost exactly half of Baker County's 2 million acres. Warner said he expects Bennett would maintain regular oKce hours at the Courthouse and spend at least two and a half days per week there. That, too, makes sense. Still and all, the county has managed to operate with admirable eKciency under the current system, with the commission chairman a full-time position and the two other commissioners oKcially as quarter-time. Moreover, Bill Harvey, who defeated Warner in the May 20 primary, is in line to take the chairman's position in January. Whether adding to Bennett's hours and salaries remains the preferred strategy once Harvey is running the county will, of course, be determined later. In the meantime, though, we expect that Warner and Bennett will be able to give their constituents detailed descriptions about how Bennett's additional hours translate into more effective representation for the county. Based on Bennett's track record — which is the main reason we endorsed him in the May 20 primary, where he prevailed over Dick Fleming and Gene Stackle — we doubt this will be a diKcult task. But when you double an oKcial's salary — any oKcial's salary — it's hardly an imposition to require that you show the people footing the bill what they're getting for their dollars.

State's college goals come with risks Editorial from The (Bend) Bulletin: As high school students across the state celebrate graduation this month, Oregon is three years into a grand reform of its education system that sets a high standard for how many of them should earn that high school diploma. John Kitzhaber launched the effort at thestartofhisthird term asgovernor in January 2011, when he described an early version of what became his 40-4020 goalforeducation. In his inaugural address, he focused on theclassof2020 and said atleast80 percentshould gettwoyearsofpost-secondary education and 40 percent should go on for four or more years. By the time the Legisl ature passed hisreforms later that year, the plan had been refined into "40-40-20" and applied to the class of 2025.The goalisfor40 percent to geta bachelor' sdegreeorm ore,40 percent to get anassociate'sdegreeor certificate and the remaining 20 percent to have a high school diploma. Translation: The goal is for 100 percent of this year's first-graders to gradu-
ate from high school in 2025, this in a state where the four-year graduation rate climbed only a few points in recent yearstoland at68.7 percent in 2013. So is the goal realistic? The careful response from many educators is that the goal is "aspirational." To try to meet that aspirational goal, the state and its 197 school districts have spent untold hours and dollars on dozens of programs. To mention just a few: • Increased focus and a revamped system for early childhood education and social services. • Implementation of achievements compacts in which local districts set goalsforgraduation rates,third-grade reading levels and ninth-grade credits earned, among others. College and university compacts include targets for number of degrees granted. • New methods of rating schools, with extra help going to those with low performance. • Renewed emphasis on helping high schoolstudents to earn collegecredits
before they graduate. • A revised teacher evaluation system with an emphasis on professional development. New methods to advance the goal continue to be proposed: • Last week, Oregon schools chief Rob Saxton suggested schools that help low-income ninth graders earn at least six credits should receive extra funding, at the expense of other schools that have fewer poor students. As much as $10 million could be redirected if the Legislatureagreesto thisapproach. • In Central Oregon, local educators are working on ways to make more college courses available in high schools. Success may depend on lowering the qualifications required for those who teach such courses. No doubt many of these initiatives will have a positive impact. The risk is thatinthedrive to grantcreditsand degrees, the standards supporting them could be scaled back, eroding the underlying education and making the credits and degrees less valuable.

regoncollege tuitionwon'tgo uythisyear By Steven DuBois Associated Press
PORTLAND — After years of sharp tuition increases, Oregon undergraduates have finally gotten a break. The state Board of Higher Education on Friday officially approved a tuition freeze for the upcoming academic year. The freeze for in-state undergraduates resulted from last fall's "grand bargain" between Gov. John Kitzhaber and the Legislature. Kitzhaber got more money for education while lawmakers won pension cuts for government employees and a bill that restricted most Oregon countiesfrom regulating genetically engineered crops. It's the first time tuition has remained in check since 2001. Back then, it cost less than $4,000 in tuition and feesto attend one ofOregon's seven public universities. The average has since

The University of Oregon, Oregon State University and Portland State University have established their own institutional boards, and those panels will approve tuition rates next year. The highered board willapprove tuition for the other four universities in June 2015. The institutional boards to be formedatthose schools will take that responsibility in 2016.

SAN ANTONIO — LeBron James knew he had to do more than just get his body right between Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals. His mind needed a little work as well. So that's why, without anyone else with him — no security, no friends, nobody, and that almost never happens — James quietly showed up at a theater a couple miles from where the Miami Heat were staying for a 5:40p.m. showing Saturday ofuMaleficent.n And it's also why he and his regular massage therapist joined two strangers fora yogaclass at 8a.m. Sunday, where he focused on his breathing. "I needed to get everything right," James sald. After a virtuoso,cramp-free performance, it
looks like he succeeded. The NBA Finals are headed back to Miami knotted at a game apiece, and James' weekend of work away f'rom the court paid big dividends on the floor to make that happen. He scored 33 ofhis 35 points in the final three quarters, made a play call to set up Chris Bosh's 3-pointer that provided the 17th and final lead change of the night with 1:18 left, and the Heat topped the San Antonio Spurs 98-96in Game 2 on Sunday night. "I just try to make plays out there on the floor," said James, who had to leave Game 1 in the final minutes because of cramps."And like I continue to say, put myself and my teammatesin aposition to succeed and live with the results after that." Just like last year's finals, the Spurs won Game 1 and the Heat took Game 2.

Feeling pugnacious, but not sure
oIo ' .'
exactly why Pugnacious. It was a delicious word on this particular morning. I let itroll around in my mouth and thought about it in three syllablespug-nay-shus — letting my lower jaw jut out in defiance. Defiance against what? And, why in the moment did I feel combative? I went over the thought that had invaded my morning coffee moments, watching the sun come up on a perfectly fine Saturday morning. The day ahead had only pleasant opportunities to offer if I chose to acceptthem. There was no pressure to push me in any one direction, and yet, I felt anger stirring within me and I needed to understand its presence. Things picked at me in my personal world like "little buttercups" — the weed — and stuck to me like the little sharp brown burs the soft green growths would become, capable of flattening car and wheelchair tires or puncture bare feet. My world, I concluded, had become too big and I couldn't contain its needs and demands within the scope of my individual realm. I wanted to pluck them out and be done with them, but I didn't know what they were. I was being overwhelmed by some dark looming creature of fear without knowledge of its demands and for what reason. Sipping the hot brew and turning overthe solitaire cardswith aone on one snap as though they could predict my future, Iwondered why some days started out this way with nothing to support them. It was just one of those mornings that started out a blank page but unreasonableanger stirring overwhat? Was it something in a non-rememberable dream that caused it? The condition of the world after hearing troubling news? The day-by-day problems to be faced and overcome? The build-up of issues, minor in themselves, but forming a block of an enemy ready for combat? No rememberable dreams had marred my sleep the night before, but I knew a sense of exhaustion that sometimes haunted me, again for no specific reason. Just that my world had become too large to handle, I surmised. Too many people to worry about; too large an area needing my concern; too many bad decisions governing too much of the population from afar; too many little personal worries looming into one dark cloud. I felt discouraged even as the sun burst forth into what promised to be a lovely day, hopefully washing away my doubtsand anxieties. Did everyone feel this way from time to time? I wondered. When they initially felt"pugnacious," did the negative feelings wash away? Did their world shrink back to size so it could be handled,molded,shapedinto a more controllable size? SeeDory/Page 2B

A healthier alternative to mac-n-cheese — less fat and chock full of chard.
By Karen Kain Who doesn't love mac-ncheese? I have avoided making it for years due to the high fat content coming from the cheese m ost reci pes callfor. This recipe is lower in fat and gluten free if you use gluten free pasta. The first time I made it I had low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was really delicious and now one of my favorites. Itisa greatwa y to getgreens into picky eaters. I made this dish for an entire middle school class and they all really enjoyed it. I often encourage you to play with ingredients, but if you are making this for the first time, I suggest that you use the smoked gouda,itreally addsa great flavor. For my second recipe I am sharing an old favorite from the UK. I made it the first time for curiosity reasons after hearing my fiiends boast about how delicious it was. I readily admit that I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I added in the green olives, blue cheese and boiled eggs, I think it is a great combination of flavors. Discard if you are not a fan. The key to this dish is in making the white sauce. Spend the extra time needed to ensure the sauce is thickened.
Glutenfree Mac n cheese vfth Chard One 12-16 ounce package gluten-free elbow macaroni 2-4 cups chopped Swiss chard (omit only tough stalks) 1/2 cup cream cheese cut into small cubes 2-3 cups milk (dish will thicken considerably after refrigeration) 4 tablespoons parmesan (grated) 1/2 cup mild cheddar (grated) 1/4 cup smoked Gouda (grated) 4 tablespoons butter (optional) 1 teaspoon onion

Looking at over cook, set aside and discard the ingredients you might think the bay leaf. In a small sauce-
pan add the two tablespoons of butter, heat until melted, add the flour to make a paste. Slowly add the milk into the pan and stir over a medium heat until the milk thickens, making a white sauce. Once the milk has thickened add the cheese and stir until melted. Put the fish in a baking dish with 3-inch sides and cover with the white sauce. Next, layer the sliced eggs and then layer the green olives. While the potatoes are still hot add the blue cheese and mix well. Pat the mashed potatoes over the fish, sealing the dish, salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn the broiler on high for 5-10 minutes and brown the top. This is a wonderful winter dish that reheats well. Enjoy!
OSll's food greservationhotlinereturnsstarting july14 By Denise Ruttan Oregon State University Extension Service
CORVALLIS — The Oregon State University Extension Service's food preservation and safety hotline will help Oregonians safely can and preserve their garden's abundance again this summer. The toll-fiee hotline at 1-800-3547319 is available July 14 to Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday. The hotline remains a useful resourceforfood safety information even in the Internet age, said Nellie Oehler, a faculty member with the OSU Extension Service's Family and CommunityHealth program and M aster Food Preservercoordinator in Lane County. 'There's a lot of misinformation online and you have to know
theright websitesto getaccurate information or you could literally kill yourselfif you use techniques that arenotsafe,"Oehlersaid."Peoplecall us to getreliable information from a real person. The Lane and Douglas County Master Food Preservers who answer the calls have good training and years of experience canning and preserving food." Like all Extension-certified Master
Food Preservers, those who staff the hotline have completed 40 hours of training and agreed to spend a similar amount of time sharing their new knowledge with the public. Last year, 460 new and veteran Master Food Preservers throughout the state volunteered more than 20,000 hours of their time on the statewide hotline and at workshops and exhibits. Master Food Preservers answered
2,262 calls during the 2013 summer season. About 80 percent of those dealt with food safety questions. Typical questions include where to getpressuregauges tested,how long in advance you can cook chicken before the big family picnic and whether grandma's canningrecipe is still safe.

No, the word had slipped away and I readied myself to face my own sphere of opportunity. The mountain was there. This was my challenge for just this one day, thisone moment. Not with defiance but with steady and calm ascent. All it took was a smile on my face and a bag of good will. I opened the door and faced the sun shining in. I was on my way to find something good, for there is something to love in every day. I would search until I found it, for love conquers all.
