Adam Cole, and Lt. Zack Lantis Photo contributed Boardman Rural Fire Protection District attended a Ventilation and Search & Rescue training hosted by Irrigon Rural Fire Protection District on January 26, 2012.

exposed to real life scenarios. During these trainings we control the atmosphere and slow things down to make sure that all firefighters are ready in a true emergency. We then have the opportunity at the end of the drill to critique how things went and to answer any questions that come up. Boardman Fire and Irrigon

Fire have a great working relationship and will be continuing to train together. Boardman Rural Fire Protection District is accepting applications for volunteer firefighters.

Council sets priorities for city projects At the March 6th City Council Meeting, the Boardman City Council made sidewalks their number one priority for the next two fiscal years. They have allocated $10,000 each year for the next two fiscal years to finish all the areas within the city without sidewalks. Currently the City has regulations which require sidewalks to be installed when a new project is built in the city. Approximately 13,000 feet of sidewalk is needed to finish the areas that are undeveloped or on properties which were devel-

oped before city regulations required sidewalks. The City will be working with property owners to complete these projects by the end of 2014. Other priorities include the paving of Olson Road, installing electric along NE Front Street for a future farmer’s market, and the paving of NE Columbia Avenue. In other City business, the Council heard a presentation from Morrow County School Superintendant Dirk Dirksen re-

garding the school’s budget reduction for the next two or three years and the need to renew the serial levy in May. The City also heard an update from Kim Travis of the Oregon Solutions Team on ideas the team has come up with to promote the development of Boardman. One idea the team has is to offer gap-financing for developers of new home construction in Boardman. Another idea is to encourage business growth by offering incentives.

Boardman Police Department taking back unwanted prescription drugs Boardman, Oregon – On April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Boardman Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to the Boardman Police Department at 200 City Center Circle in Boardman. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Chief Stokoe encourages everyone to take advantage of this service. Last October, Americans turned in 377,080 pounds—188.5 tons— of prescription drugs at over 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement partners. In its three previous Take Back events, DEA

and its partners took in almost a million pounds—nearly 500 tons— of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Four days after the first event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances. DEA is drafting regulations to implement the Act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies like [agency] and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events every few months.

Training to become a Certified Ombudsman Volunteer will be held beginning May 8, 2012 in the LaGrande area. This is a State of Oregon volunteer program designed to assist the Deputy Ombudsmen in Salem in investigating and monitoring complaints of seniors living in long term care. LongTerm Care Ombudsmen advocate for senior citizens who are living in long term care facilities, are appointed by the State Ombudsman and are trained to educate, investigate, and advocate and learn to be a “problem solver”. There are 5 days of training involved in this volunteer position, held over the course of three weeks. Mileage reimbursement is available for those who qualify. There are openings for four volunteers in Umatilla, Grant, Gilliam, Morrow and Wheeler Counties. Interviews will be held in the area the first week of May, so applications should be submitted no later than April 20. The Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman is an agency of

the State of Oregon, dedicated to protecting the rights, safety and dignity of the residents of nursing homes, residential care facilities, assisted living facilities and adult foster care homes. To report a concern about a long-term care facility, call 1-800-522-2602, visit www.oregon.gov/LTCO or email us at LTCO.contact@ltco.state.or.us. Volunteers are a vital part of the Ombudsman program and provide an important local presence to protect the rights and dignity of elders in Long-Term Care. In 2011, our program was the recipient of the Governors’ Volunteer Award for Outstanding Statewide Volunteer Program. Call Gretchen Jordan, Coordinator of Volunteers, at 1800-522-2602 to apply or visit www.oregon.gov/LTCO to download an application or for more information on becoming a Certified Ombudsman volunteer.

Blue Mt. Sams clean up Boardman Marina Park for 8th year Once again Boardman Park & Recreation District received immense help with their Spring Cleanup, from their adopted Good Sams club called “Blue Mountain Sams”, out of Pendleton. The members came two days in a row (3/26-3/27/12) and helped park staff get the day-use park and campground spiffed up for the season and the Easter egg hunt (April 07th 10am at the Day use park). The group mowed, swept leaves and debris with the “Olathe” sweeper, and raked all of the grass throughout the park on their first day of work. They also picked up limbs that had accumulated from over the winter and made the campground look new and welcoming. The Blue Mountain Sams also painted the picnic shelters inside and out in the day use area on their second day, which helped the day use area look cleaner and approachable to every visitor in the community as well as customers driving in. Boardman Park & Recreation District is ready to take on the season!! Boardman Park wishes to thank the exemplary help and efforts received by the Blue Mt. Sams. This major Spring Cleanup could not be accomplished without their much needed assistance of their time, effort and knowledge. The park staff continue to look forward to getting their help every year. The Park staff enjoyed a lunch with the “Blue Mountain Sams” and

Five members of Blue Mt. Sams club enjoyed lunch with Boardman Park & Recreation District Kristi Sams.

Letters to the Editor not gotten her into the hospital so fast my mother would no longer be here with me. Telling these heroes of mine thank you seems so little but in any case I would like to tell them all thank you for keeping Boardman safe and thank you for saving my mother. Kathy Parsons Boardman This year we have started the Food Backpack Program at Irrigon Elementary School. The purpose of this program is to provide students in need with food over the weekend. The way the program works is a backpack of food is sent home for the weekend. Many of our students rely on the meals that they are provided at school. It is common on non-school days for some students to go without food. Our hope is to provide them with the proper nourishment for the weekends. Research shows that students who are properly nourished perform better in school as well as life. Through a grant our school is provided with 11 weekly backpacks. We have received request from more than 33 families in need with more request coming in daily. We would like to send a backpack to every family in need each week. The students look forward to their backpacks each week. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000 this year. If you could donate food items or make a monetary donation to be used to purchase items to support the program, we will include your name in acknowledgment of the support in the Backpack Program. Thanking you for taking the time to read this letter. As one of our sponsors, I will let you know about what we intend to do. If you would like to know about the event and our school, please email or call Laura Rowe at 541/922-2421 ext. 2834 or laura.rowe@morrow.k12.or.us. This is the same contact info for making donations.
