Blue Mt. Sams group does spring cleaning at Boardman Marina Park An active group of RVers who are members of the Blue Mountain Sams were in Boardman March 22 and 23 to help clean up Boardman Marina Park. The club “adopted” the Marina Park in 2005, and have shown up for spring cleaning every year since then. The Blue Mt. Sams was founded in 1975, and it was the first Good Sams group to organize on the eastern part of the state. Being a member of an RV group isn’t all about traveling and fun. This energetic group is involved in many volunteer efforts, including saving pull tabs on cans for the cystic fibrosis research, netting over $4,000 just last year. They also

New eatery, Sunrise at Boardman to open on Front Street in April Harol & Mildred Baker and daughter Karen Purcell have been working hard to complete the remodeling of their new restaurant Sunrise at Boardman. They plan to open for business the 3rd week of April.

We’ll have a another option for eating out soon when the restaurant Sunrise at Boardman opens its doors the third week of April. Residents Harold and Mildred Baker and daughter Karen Purcell have been looking for just the right spot to open a restaurant in Boardman, and finally decided on the former Bank of Eastern Oregon building located on Front Street near Dodge City Inn. The remodeling was a huge project, which included gutting the interior and add-

ing onto the existing structure. “It’s a family project,” says Karen Purcell, but she’s the family member who we will see every day when they open. They plan to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with hours of operation from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm. “Maybe we’ll be open later at night during the summer,” says Karen. They plan to have eight or nine tables, and serve sandwiches, whole meals, and full breakfasts. “We’re still tinkering with the

menu,” says Karen. There will be eight employees to take care of the food preparation and serving. The Bakers have long years of experience in the restaurant business; they built and operated the Nomad Restaurant & Lounge for many years and Karen worked at the C & D Drive In for years. So watch for the “Open for Business” signs along northwest Front Street -- a Grand Opening will come a little later in the spring.

Seeking gardeners!!! The City of Boardman is looking for gardeners to cultivate the City’s new Community Garden. Located north of Boardman Avenue and west of Main Street, the garden will be ready to plant by April 12th. The City’s Public Works crew has been busy preparing the garden; they’ve spread top soil, and plumbed water to the property. The City would like to hear from its residents who are interested in planting their own garden, free of charge, at the site. Each gardener will be given an 8’ x 10’ plot of land for their use. Residents should contact City Hall at 541-481-9252 as soon as possible. An organizational meeting will be scheduled as soon as the City knows how many individuals are interested.

Flag contract renewed During Tuesday’s Boardman City Council meeting, Councilors voted to renew a contract with Boy Scout Troop 602 for flag placement along Main Street. The City will pay the Boy Scout Troop $1000 for placement and removal of approximately 100 flags along Main Street on Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Election Day, and Veteran’s Day. Councilors agreed that the flag display on these holidays is important to show the community’s patriotism. Boy Scout Troop 602 uses the money to send their members to Scout Camp. The contract is annual, and will expire at the end of the year. In other City news, Councilors scheduled a quarterly review of the City’s Strategic Plan for Tuesday, April 6, 2010 during their next regular Council meeting.

Boardman, Heppner Libraries Free public programs about frontier justice in early Oregon, how to manage stress, and an artist’s views on painting landscapes in eastern Oregon are brought to the Boardman and Heppner branch libraries this month by the Oregon Trail Library District (OTLD) and Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO). Just over 100 years ago, many Oregon cities held public executions with men, women and children congregating to watch convicted criminals hang from gallows erected in local fields. A public program titled “Justice in Frontier Oregon, 1851-1905” will be hosted by the Oregon Trail Library District (OTLD) at the Boardman Branch Library, 200 S. Main St., Boardman on Mon., April 5 at 6:30 p.m. and again on Tues., April 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Heppner Branch Library, 444 N. Main St. in Heppner. Oregon historian and author Diane Goeres-Gardner will present a lively hour program on the state’s early public executions. The program is free and open to anyone interested in the state’s colorful past. “Even after it was common for stockades to hide an execution, thousands watched and waited outside their walls,” GoeresGardner said. “In a state known for its peaceful agrarian communities, such events were accepted and even celebrated.” The names of many persons involved in Oregon’s early execu-

tions now dot the state’s roads, buildings, parks and history, Goeres-Gardner said. Her program will explore changing attitudes and perceptions – from the 1850 hanging of Native Americans for the Whitman massacre to 1905, when the last execution in Oregon outside of a state penitentiary took place. A former presenter for the Oregon Humanities council, GoeresGardner resides in Oakland, Oregon. Her most recent book explores early women criminals of Oregon and newly-released information from her research will augment her program in La Grande. On Sat., April 17 “Stress Management: A Healthy Mental Place” will be presented at the Boardman Branch Library at 11 a.m. and at the Heppner Branch Library at 2 p.m. The program will be presented by Brianne Bostian, an Oregon Health Sciences University health educator who will soon be teaching public health as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya, Africa. The effects of stress on the body, how to recognize stress triggers and how to manage stress will be covered. The one-hour program is open to all ages. On Thurs., April 29 nationally acclaimed artist Daniel Robinson will present a lively program on oil painting at the Heppner Branch Library. He will also present at the Boardman Branch Library on Tues., May 4. Each program will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Robinson, a Fossil resident, has been featured on National Public Radio as a rising American artist of the 21st Century, and also has been featured as a special show on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Oregon Art Beat. He has had solo shows at prominent art galleries in Portland, Boston and elsewhere that have drawn rave reviews. Robinson will detail his techniques in oil painting and will discuss his process from concept to completed work. Several of his paintings will be shown, including a few recently completed works that have not yet been shown to the public. The programs at the libraries are hosted by OTLD and sponsored by Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO) as part of LEO’s ‘A Sense of Place’ series of programs in the arts, sciences and humanities. Funding for A Sense of Place has been provided to LEO through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), our nation’s leading federal agency in support of museums and libraries. For further information, please contact OTLD director Marsha Richmond at 541-481-3365. Richmond serves on the LEO board of directors and is one of the nonprofit’s founding members. Additional information about LEO is available at or To learn more about IMLS, please see on line.

High Desert Dutch Oven Cooks serve up Southern cuisine Good cooks know no boundaries. Two years ago, Tom and Debbie Imus and neighbor Bill Barnes decided to take their hobby more seriously and formed the High Desert Dutch Oven Cooks, an organization that promotes cooking every kind of food outdoors with charcoal in dutch ovens. Since then, they’ve rounded up dozens of members stretching from Boardman to Milton Freewater, Stanfield, Heppner, Umatilla, Echo and Pendleton. The group meets monthly on a Sunday to share their recipes and cook up a meal. Their dues are $10 per person or $20 per family per year. “We meet year-round, once a month at different locations,” says Debbie Imus. “Each month is a different theme, such as Mexican,

Scottish, Italian and German. You just have to like to eat and cook to join us, you don’t have to be experienced, someone is always willing to help.” The youngest cook they’ve had so far is twelve years old. The theme of this month’s meet was southern comfort. The dishes included: fried okra and hush puppies, slippery pot pie, pop ‘n gone (rice, bacon & black beans), honey rolls, sausage and shrimp gumbo over rice, crawfish, cornbread and desserts included huckleberries & peach cobbler and chocolate cake. There were 25 cooks using 17 dutch ovens to prepare this month’s feast. Member Bill Barnes relates how the club started, “We were pretty basic when we first started: mostly

bbq and beans out of a cookbook. But now anything you can cook on a stove or in an oven, we cook in dutch ovens,” he related. The members are expanding their demonstrations to include cooking at the Umatilla Landing Days, the Cookoff at the Chuckwagon, Pendleton Cattle Baron Association and this year the Hermiston Chamber of Commerce invited them to cook at their Saturday Markets. The members have food handlers licenses so they can prepare and serve food to the public. The cooks sometimes share ideas via the Internet on Yahoo Group One of their members, Jane Ginther is putting together a cookbook from recipes the group has prepared. They also keep a scrapbook which includes photos and recipes of their gatherings. The next meeting of the High Desert Dutch Oven Cooks will be at the Boardman Marina Harold Baker Pavilion on Sunday, April 25th; cooking begins at 1:00 pm, eating begins at 3:00 pm. The theme for April will be Russian Cuisine. If you’d like to join, come observe the first meeting (and sample the food, too!) and then dues-paying members are always welcome. For more information, contact Tom & Debbie Imus, 4812922 or email:

The Chinook Equine Association is going to have a fundraiser: their second annual Poker Trail Ride, to be held April 10th, hosted by Double T Farms at Three Mile Canyon. The trail ride begins at 10:00 am and takes about two hours to complete. Participants may decide whether to take the long ride, which is 10 miles or the short ride, which is 5 miles. The trail ride begins near Three Mile Canyon, winds through Double T Farms and takes in the beauty of the Willow Creek Valley. Never attended a poker trail

ride? Read on: Each rider pays $10 for each hand of poker, which consists of five cards. You may buy more poker hands if you wish. You pay the fee for the hands of poker, get on your horse and ride to the first station along the circuit. You pick up one card for each poker hand at each of the five stations; at the end of your ride (either 5 or 10 miles) you play out your poker hand with the other riders. The prizes go to the top three hands on each ride. Proceeds from the trail ride go towards youth scholarships and activities.

There will be door prizes given along the trail, a silent auction and lunch will be catered by Apatzingan. Last year 45 riders participated in the Poker Trail Ride. “Every breed of horse is welcome, bring a mule if you want to,” says Joe Taylor. Riders come from as far as La Grande to participate. For more information including driving directions to Double T Farms and an application for the trail ride, you can check them out at: or call Joe Taylor at 541-314-0144

La Grande Police Chief Brain Harvey, Representative Smith, Union County Sheriff Boyd Rasmussen. (Salem) Representative Greg Smith (R-Heppner) earned a 94% score on the Oregon Anti-Crime Alliance (OAA) 2009 voting scorecard. According to the group, the scorecard measures votes on bills that have the greatest impact on their mission to make Oregon “one of the top five seats in the nation for lowcrime rates.” “The Oregon Anti-Crime Alliance scorecard demonstrates my strong commitment to keeping our communities safe,” Rep. Smith said. “I’m proud to support bills that advance Oregon’s reputation as a state that’s determined to be tough on crime. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, I have also worked to give our State Police, the Department of Corrections and the Oregon Youth Authority the resources they need to investigate crimes and hold

criminals accountable.” The OAA scorecard tracked legislators’ votes on many of the session’s most important public safety bills. Rep. Smith joined OAA in voting to crack down on sexual predators, repeat drunk drivers and those who assault or murder pregnant women. He also supported legislation to provide speedy trial rights to crime victims. “Oregonians deserve an effective criminal justice system,” Rep. Smith said. “I will continue to support legislation that helps our law enforcement officers and district attorneys. In addition, I am dedicated to helping to deliver justice for crime victims.” “Representative Smith has shown through his voting that he is dedicated to the protection of the citizens and law enforcement officers of Northeast Oregon. Greg

did a great job for our public safety.” -Union County Sheriff, Boyd Rasmussen “Representative Smith has shown true diligence for the public safety of Wallowa County as he representatives us in Salem. Thank you Greg!” -Wallowa County Sheriff, Fred Steen “I have known Rep. Smith for a number of years as Morrow County Sheriff. He has always been an advocate for public safety. He and I have worked together multiple times in drafting legislation for public safety issues. He continues to be an advocate for and an outstanding partner of the citizens of Morrow County.” -Morrow County Sheriff, Kenneth Matlack

A rare type of cancer is associated with exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a substance that has been shown to be carcinogenic and may place persons at risk for this condition after exposure for only a few weeks. A long period of time, for example 35 to 40 years, typically transpires between the time of initial exposure and development of malignant tumors. This condition involves the mesothelium, which is the cells lining an organ. Organs affected by this condition include the lungs, abdominal organs, and the heart. Cancer of the mesothelium is called mesothelioma. Early symptoms may be similar to those observed with pneumonia and can include shortness of breath, persistent cough, and chest and abdominal pain. Although the survival rate for mesothelioma typically ranges from 4 to 12 months from the time of symptom onset, it is possible for persons affected by this condition to live for much longer. Available treatments for this condition include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The preferred treatment is a combination of the chemotherapy medications pemetrexed (Alimta) and Cisplatin. Folic acid and vitamin B12 must also be used with pemetrexed since this medication interferes with their normal metabolism. A combination of cisplatin and carboplatin may also be used.
