On September 21, 2013, the Boardman Kiwanis are hosting the “5TH” annual ROLLIN’ on the RIVER event. Started in September 2009, as a joint venture between the Boardman Chamber of Commerce and the Boardman Kiwanis, this event was created to “establish an annual event in Boardman, Oregon that provides entertainment and libations to people from all over the Columbia Basin”.

This year offers 3 bands; extended hours from 2 pm to 9 pm; an actual dance floor; increased car show display; and wine & beer tasting from local venues. Food will be available for purchase. So, mark your calendars and come on down to the Marina on Saturday, September 21, 2013 between the hours of 2 pm and 9 pm and join in the fun !

Why do residents live in Boardman? Boardman, Ore.- July 12, 2013The Boardman Economic Development Committee (BEDC), a joint venture of the Boardman Chamber of Commerce and the Boardman Community Development Association, announced the results of a survey of people who work in Boardman on why they choose to reside in the community they currently live. The poll, which was distributed in both English and Spanish, included responses from one hundred and nineteen people who lived in eight different communities, including Boardman. The survey revealed Boardman residents tend to be more involved in their community than respondents of surrounding towns. Of the respondents, the majority-38 percent, have lived and worked in Boardman for an average of fifteen years, and are married or cohabitating in a single, detached family home that they own. Overall the results suggest Boardman residents utilized community resources and attend local functions more often than the other seven represented towns: · 24 percent of Boardman resi-

dents have visited a local park more than 26 times in the last year. 47 percent have visited a local park 3 to 12 times in the last year; · 11 percent of Boardman residents have attended a local school activity more than 26 times in the last year, while 31 percent have attended 3 to 12 times; · 20 percent of Boardman residents have participated in a religious or spiritual activity; · 22 percent of Boardman residents have participated in a club or civic group activity 3 to 12 times in the last year; · 31 percent of Boardman residents have attended a cultural or entertainment activity 3 to 12 times in the past year; and, · 24 percent of Boardman residents participated in outdoor recreational activities locally 13 to 26 times in the last year. The majority of residents listed ‘close to work’ and ‘close to family and friends’ as reasons they live in Boardman. Many noted they enjoy the smaller town and find it ‘safe and quiet’. The BEDC is using the survey results to help develop an economic development strategy.

City of Boardman develops Storefront Façade Improvement Program BOARDMAN, Ore. – In an effort to help local businesses improve their appearances and to attract new business, the City of Boardman has developed a Storefront Façade Improvement Program. This program will provide loans or direct grants for the improvement qualifying projects thanks to the lending assistance from local banking institutions. The Storefront Program aims to help local businesses improve their exterior appearances, enhance the general business environment and help attract further investment in Boardman. The program is designed to stimulate private investment, expand the tax base and provide job opportunities. Funds, when available, will be awarded to

targeted businesses on a first come, first serve basis. When grant funds are available, the Storefront Program will match every dollar a participating business spends on qualifying improvements, up to $5,000 or 50 percent of the entire project, whichever is less. No direct City funds will be utilized for the program, nor will the City participate directly in the lending of funds to businesses. Rather, the City has arranged with local banks – including Banner Bank, the Bank of Eastern Oregon and First Community Credit Union – and local revolving loan funds to provide competitive rates and minimal fees for qualifying projects. Funds may be provided in two categories: 1) loans from local financial institutions set aside spe-

cifically for the program, and where the interest rate is intended to be competitive and may also be “paid down” or “blended” using other lower interest programs; and 2) direct grants where available. Businesses receiving grants will consult with the City on proposed improvements, which can include most aspects of street-facing façade rehabilitation, including storefronts, exterior lighting, canopies and awnings, painting and masonry, and architectural/dimensional signage. For more information about the City of Boardman’s Storefront Façade Improvement Program, please visit the City’s web site, www.cityofboardman.com, or contact City Manager Karen Pettigrew at 541-481-9252 or pettigrewk@cityofboardman.com.

City of Boardman to offer gap lending for new housing BOARDMAN, Ore. – The City of Boardman has started a new program to provide funding for gap lending in an effort to build more residential units within the city. The Boardman Housing Development Fund (BHDF), funded through enterprise zone negotiations, was initiated as a response to an identified need based on work performed through the Oregon Community Solutions-Boardman Workforce Housing finance committee. Initial funding will be $100,000, administered through the Greater Eastern Oregon Development Corporation (GEODC). The purpose of the fund is to provide funding for gap lending to aid in building single family residences, duplex, triplex and fourplex units in Boardman to sell or add to the rental pool for market-rate rental housing. Gap lending provides financing for the construction gap between the lender’s construction loan and the total cost of the project. Maximum loan amounts will not exceed 40 percent of the project’s total

cost, including all fees. Banner Bank and the Bank of Eastern Oregon – both of which have branches in Boardman – have signed on as lenders for the BHDF. Applicants for the funds must prequalify with a lender to finance a construction loan to build on property in Boardman. Borrowers will be given an incentive for projects completed within 90 days of the construction loan closing – those projects completed within 90 days will have 100 percent interest forgiveness on their BHDF loan. More details regarding the

BHDF program can be found on the City of Boardman’s web site,

Don’t miss the August lineup for Music in the Parks! August 5th, Irrigon Marina Park will feature Cale Moon for Music in the Parks. What is it that attracts people to the music of 19 year old, Cale Moon? Is it the shock factor of having a voice that sounds many years beyond his age? Or is it his prolific song writing that is equally as deep and rich, and shows wisdom and emotion far beyond his years? Maybe it’s that pure, down home, honest smile, and contagious personality that is so inviting, that people just can’t resist? Who would have believed, back in 2009 when Cale started learning the guitar, that just a few years later, he would be a full time country artist, living on the road, his family sacrificing their home, to help Cale pursue his dream? How does someone go from learning the guitar, to writing over 150 songs, and performing over 400 times, and releasing 2 albums in such a short time? In 2009, at the age of 15, Cale

Medals, 5 Silver Medals, and 2 Bronze Medals, as well as the glass star for Jr. World Champion Actor. A very unlikely start, but that is what headed Cale in the direction he is still heading today. In February of 2010, thanks to his manager at the time, Patrick Hart, Cale was given an opportunity of a lifetime, to co-write with renowned song writers Steve Dorff and Bobby Tomberlin. From that experience, came the song “A Country Song”. The rest of the year was spent between performing, writing songs, and school. 2011 was a banner year in Cale’s career. It Started January 1st, cutting his first Demo at Rainmaker Studios in Kennewick Washington. A few months later, Cale recorded his first full length album “The Beginning” with Brook Floyd, and Joe Smart, at Rainmaker Studios. “The Beginning” released on April 27th of 2011. Within a couple of weeks, he started receiving calls from people in Nashville, wanting Cale to come and talk to them, so within a month, he was in Nashville. While in Nashville, thanks to “Big Bear” (Barry Long) from KORD 102.7 in Pasco WA, Cale met with Fred Vail, owner of Treasure Isle Recorders in Nashville, which started a friendship that would bring more people Singer, songwriter Cale Moon entertains and opportunities in August 5th at Irrigon Marina Park.

Boardman Buzzzzzzzz Hello North Morrow Residents! I find it hard to believe that August is here! Although July flew by, I do have to admit that I am ready for fall temperatures! I’ve Diane Wolfe, had enough heat to last CEO me until next summer! I had such a great time at the 4th of July; the event went really smoothly it was really nice to have Amber to help out this year. I do

have to say my sister and her husband were a really big help. Lyn, stay here and sell the t-shirts, Stu, run to the grocery store and pick up the apples and oranges, please do this, please do that! And you know they did it all! Lyn was especially good at the stop sign collecting donations! As I am writing this my oldest son is flying into the Pasco airport. He will be visiting me for a few days; it will be his first trip to Oregon since I have lived here. I have so much to show him! I just found out that my folks will be coming to visit the first part of

August so that will be a lot of fun for me. I guess this was the summer for everyone to come visit me, my sister, my son, my parents, hummm – I wonder if it is me or if it is really the SAGE Center they are coming to see. They have been listening to me talk about this for so long I think they just had to come see for themselves!!! In between all the company I really have been trying to keep up with Chamber work! Right now Amber is teaching me everything I forgot that she has been doing for a year! And of course I have to learn more about The Store

as she will be out for maternity leave sometime in the next month. Amber has been such a huge asset to the Chamber in the year she has been here; she will really be missed for those few months she will be gone. I’m thinking maybe we should do the “Baby Watch” you know kinda like they did for Kate in England! I know her baby is just as important as the heir to the throne!!!! At least in our eyes! Enjoy the rest of the summer and if you haven’t visited the SAGE Center yet you had better come check it out! Till next month, di

4th of July Recap Thunder Run/Walk – we had over 55 participants, not bad for the event on a Thursday! Ages of the runners and walkers ranged from under a year old (OK she was in a stroller pushed by dad) to over 70 years old! Thanks to the volunteers that helped organize this event, Deanna Camp, Shawn Fells, Stu Whitlock, Kory Killingbeck, Key Club and Kathie Goad. Parade – What a fabulous parade again this year.

The parade winners were: Best of Show Rancho San Juan; Kids Best of Show Columbia River Community Health Services; Most Patriotic – Rollin on the River sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Boardman; and Mayors Choice – Fairdeal Inn.

Special thanks to Mike Nunez for once again serving as the emcee for the parade, he does a great job and we appreciate him announcing each year. Vendors – We had a really good variety of food and novelty vendors this year, I enjoyed the food and especially my snow cone! That was quite refreshing in the middle of the afternoon! Thank you to Judy and Darrell Scott for organizing the vendors. Kids Games – The Child Evangelism Fellowship headed up by Barb Kessler had some really fun games for the kids to enjoy! We really appreciate them helping us out with the Kids Games each year. Horseshow Tournament – Debbie Radie and Art Kegler are really turning the tournament into a big event!

Thanks to Deanna Camp for finding this group, they helped make this an even better 4th of July. Fireworks – what can I say? If you were unfortunate enough to miss the show you missed a spectacular one! Homeland Fireworks certainly gives us our money’s worth. I always have mixed feelings at the finale of the fireworks, I’m glad the day is over, but it is always so much fun, I’m sad it is over! Now it is time to start working on the 2014 celebration! Career Day It is time to start thinking about the 2014 Riverside High School Career Day sponsored by the Boardman Chamber of Commerce. On Wednesday, October 16, the RHS Seniors will spend the morning with our area businesses learning about a career they may be interested in, and after we all get together for lunch at the Port of Morrow and the students and employers tell about their experience. You will be receiving a letter requesting your participation within the next month. Please let me know if you need more information, we want as many of our businesses to participate as possible. This is a great experience for the students and for your business. September Chamber Monthly Meeting

The September monthly chamber meeting will be a bit different this year. The last couple of years we have done a tour so this year we thought we would meet at the SAGE Center and have a breakfast meeting. We have had a good number of surveys sent out in the last few months so we thought this would be a good time to discuss what the results of the surveys have been and also a good time for the Port of Morrow to update us on the Economic Impact and Strategic Plan they just had completed. We will finalize the details and get you more details in the September North Morrow Times. But please mark your calendar for Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 AM for the Chamber monthly meeting. August Chamber Lunch: Mark your calendar for the August chamber luncheon on August 21stat noon at the Port of Morrow Riverfront Center. In the spirit of ‘back to school’, we will be focusing this luncheon on education in

Morrow County. Our speaker will be Jack Matlock, Board Chair of the InterMountain Education Service District. He will be sharing information on the Blue Mountain Community College Bond levy. If approved by voters in November, this bond levy will replace BMCC’s current bond, which expires in June 2014, at the same tax rate ($0.31 per $1,000). One of the new construction projects would be the Industrial Processes Workforce Development and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Center, to be located near the SAGE Center. Superintendent of Morrow County School District, Dirk Dirksen, will also be introducing new teachers and administrators for North Morrow County schools. Lunch will be catered by Judy Scott’s Chuck Wagon and the cost is $10 per person. Please RSVP by Monday, August 19th by calling the chamber at (541)481-3014 or by email at info@boardmanchamber.org.

The participants and onlookers all enjoyed lots of laughs and camaraderie during the 4th of July Horseshoe Tournament. Fourteen teams competed for bragging rights. Thanks to Art Kegler and Debbie Radie for organizing and operating this fun event!

At the July 16th City Council meeting, the Boardman City Council appointed Arthur Kegler to the City Council. Arthur Kegler and Zack Lantis each expressed an interest in the vacant Council seat left by Tony Navarro in February. Each candidate was asked questions by the Council and with a vote of four to one, Mr. Kegler was appointed to fill the vacancy. Mr. Kegler has a long history of serving in the Boardman community, dating back thirty years. He has served on both the Boardman

Planning Commission and the City Council. He was Boardman’s Mayor from 1988 to 1989. Mr. Kegler is currently a Boardman Planning Commissioner, a position he will have to resign in order to serve on the City Council. Mayor Sandy Toms will swear in Mr. Kegler at the August 7th City Council meeting. His term will end December 31, 2016. In other City business the Council passed an Ordinance changing 4.5 acres of property at Frontier Trailer Park zoned Tourist Commer-

cial to a Manufactured Home Park Subdistrict. The Council approved sponsoring the Puncturevine Eradication Program again this summer, and approved a twenty dollar fee for fingerprinting nonresidents. Also, the Council approved and agreement with the Columbia River Enterprise Zone for the City of Boardman to act as fiscal agent for the enterprise zone. The next meeting of the Boardman City Council will be Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 7:00pm.

City of Boardman places bounty on noxious weed Boardman City Councilors voted Tuesday night to spend up to $600 on a program aimed at controlling Puncturevine within the City. The City has run the program for the last four years and has been a huge success with citizens collecting thousands of pounds of the Puncturevine. If you have ever stepped on a Puncturevine seed, you know what a pain the plant can be. Each spiny bur or seed pod from the Puncturevine (Tribulus terrestris), also known as a “Goathead”, contains 20 seeds equipped with long sharp spines capable of puncturing a bike tire or a shoe. It takes

only 3 weeks for this weed to sprout and make seeds. To make things worse, the seeds are some of the hardiest in nature; they may lay in the ground dormant for up to 20 years until just the right conditions come along for them to grow. Any established Puncturevine will continue to grow and spread until frost comes along - unless you stop it. The City plans to enlist the aid of its citizens to control the spread of Puncturevine by offering to pay for collection of the weed from July 22nd to the end of August. The Puncturevine and their seed pods need to be collected in bags pro-

vided by the City and returned to City Hall to receive the $1 per bag in bounty, or until the entire $600 has been paid out. The City’s Code Compliance Official, Keri Jarmer, said “this is a great opportunity for local youth to raise money for their organizations and to do something good for their community”. Areas of the most concern are the City’s bike/ pedestrian paths, and residential areas. Bags can be picked up at Boardman City Hall anytime from 8am to 5pm beginning July 22nd . For more information on the program, contact Boardman City Hall at 481-9252.

2013 Tri-County (Morrow, Gilliam and Wheeler) 4-H Camp big success due to volunteers who make it happen! The 2013 “Wild, Wild West 4-H Camp” was a great success this year! From June 20th-24th, 21 counselors, 67 campers, along with adult staff, camp cooks, nurses and volunteers hailing from Morrow, Gilliam and Wheeler counties gathered at Cutsforth Park for a funfilled week. A few days of poor weather turned around as the week continued, and kept all of our enthusiastic campers going with high spirits. This year there were classes from Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, teaching about fish dissection, campers went fishing in the recently stocked pond, a Wild West table manners class, and outdoor cooking kept the campers busy during their time at camp! We had a great group of crafts available this year including tye-dye Tshirts, leathercraft, painting birdhouses, a great 4-H paper craft, and many more. Outdoor activities like capture the flag, a Wild West field day full of various obstacle courses, and multiple “Get Acquainted” games kept everyone busy in the warm sunshine that eventually showed up! The hike was a long journey to the top, and almost everyone was able to make

it to the top this year. Camp was visited by the 2013 Morrow County Fair & Rodeo Queen Krysten Powell for an afternoon of photo booth fun. It was a great opportunity for our youth to meet a real rodeo queen – which tied nicely into our theme this year. The ever popular dance was quite the hit again, and due to a rainy evening the dream-boats were rescheduled to the following closing morning and were a quiet and peaceful way to end the week long activities. Everyone went home tired and happy again this year, and learned a great deal. A HUGE thank you goes out to all of our camp volunteers, instructors and helpers – we couldn’t do this without you: Dr. Tracey Hanrahan-nurse, Shelley McCabe-hike help, Mary Reser & Tracey Edwards – camp cooks, Tiffany Harrison & Tony Clement kitchen help & all around help, Sue Gibbs – kitchen help, Andrea Fletcher – night patrol & all around help, Dave & Roberta Jones – Camp hosts at Cutsforth Park, Adriana Morales & Bill Duke of ODF&W – class instructors, Miss Osterlund – class instructor, (hope I didn’t forget anyone – although I

may have!). And of course, 4-H camp is not possible without the excellent help and dedication that we have from our 4-H camp counselors! This year we had an outstanding group of young people who were ready to work hard, had great attitudes during the entire camp, and really formed a cohesive and strong leadership team. Our Morrow County Counselors were: Tom & Tim Gould, Brittany Lesperance, Morgan & Madisen Haselbusch, Alax Dunn, Bryan Fowler, Amanda Rea, Sydney Qualls, Lexi Bray, Macy Gibbs and Ian Meakins. These young people take time away from sports, work or other family events to attend counselor trainings and then camp itself. They are invaluable to the program and we thank them for all of their hard work and help! Next year’s camp theme was voted on by the campers and it will be Olympic Sports for 2014. For more information on how to participate in 4-H or to attend 4-H camp, please contact the Morrow County Extension Office at (541) 676-9642.

Campers and counselor gather around the traditional campfire during 4-H camp to sing songs, play challenge games, and watch hilarious skits put on by each tent.

InterMountain ESD hires new special education director PENDLETON The InterMountain Education Service District has hired a new special education director. Leigh Nolte started as the Special Education Director for the Far West Zone on July 1. She replaces Sarah CraneSimpson, who announced in April she would resign from IMESD to become the Ione School District superintendent. Nolte, who is from Cove, will serve the Morrow County, Ione, and Umatilla School Districts in her capacity as Special Education Director of the Far West Zone. Her primary department responsibilities lie within school psychology/ behavioral sciences, long term care & treatment, as well as nursing. She comes to IMESD from the Union School District, where she was a special education teacher. Nolte has primarily taught in small, K-12 rural school districts through-

out her education career. “I’m really excited about supporting adults who work in special education,” Nolte said. “I’ve always worked directly with kids, but I know how important a sense of support can be to those working in the classrooms and with the kids.” Nolte has a Bachelor’s Degree in psychology from Eastern Oregon State College (La Grande), and a Special Education Licensure from Southern Oregon State College (Ashland). In addition, Nolte also possesses an Initial Administrator’s License & Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Lewis & Clark College (Portland).

LEXINGTON Morrow County School District has promoted a high school principal, hired an elementary principal and two high school assistant principals for the 2013-14 school year. Following the resignation of Robert Elizondo, principal of Riverside High School, the district has promoted Marie Shimer to fill the vacant position. Ms. Shimer has been the assistant principal for the past two years at RHS; and, prior to that she taught social studies at Ontario High School for 9 years. “I enjoy the challenges of education, working with teachers, parents, and students, and the opportunities to make education happen for each student,” states Ms. Shimer. To replace Ms. Shimer, the district has hired Brandon Hammond from Sherman Elementary School in Grass Valley, OR. Mr. Hammond served as a principal there for one

year, served on the Achievement Compact Advisory Committee, and was the district ELL Coordinator. Mr. Hammond is anxious to move his family to the Boardman community in the near future, and states, “I have a strong commitment to maintaining personal integrity, high ethical standards, and a conviction for the wellbeing of each child.” In Irrigon, the district promoted Principal Matt Matz to Sam Boardman Elementary, replacing Jacque Johnson who has retired. With that move, Erin Stocker, long time elementary teacher will fill the position as principal. Mrs. Stocker taught for 12 years at AC Houghton before moving to Irrigon Elementary School last fall to become the head teacher responsible for literacy coaching. With all of her career in Irrigon, Ms. Stocker would not consider ever leaving the community. The graduating

class of 2013 was the first class that Mrs. Stocker taught when she came to Morrow County. She is excited to be a part of the administrative team, as well as staying connected with the teaching responsibilities. Also with Mr. Matz moving to Boardman, the assistant principal position was opened at Irrigon Jr/ Sr High School. From a large pool of candidates, Tina Joyce was selected to serve as assistant principal at Irrigon High School. Ms. Joyce is not a stranger to Morrow County, having been raised in Lexington and graduated from Heppner High School. “My vision for a school leader is to advocate and sustain a school culture and instructional program that is conducive to learning and growth for all students. My commitment to education reaches beyond the classroom and into the community” states Ms. Joyce.

CRCHS to help uninsured Americans gain affordable health coverage Obama administration awards $150 million to provide enrollment assistance Clinic hires Diaz as Assister to help people choose insurance coverage. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, July 10, 2013, announced $150 million in grant awards to 1,159 health centers across the nation to enroll uninsured Americans in new health coverage options made available by the Affordable Care Act. With these funds, health centers are expected to hire an additional 2,900 outreach and eligibility assistance workers to assist millions of people nationwide with enrollment into affordable health coverage. HHS Secretary Sebelius said, “Investing in health centers means that people in neighborhoods and towns across the country have one more resource to help them understand their insurance options and enroll in affordable coverage.” Health centers have a long his-

tory of providing eligibility assistance to patients along with delivering high-quality, primary health

care services in communities across the nation. Today, health centers serve more than 21 million patients annually. With these awards, which health centers in all 50 states have received, consumers will get help understanding their coverage options through the new Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program; determine their eligibility and what financial help they can get; and enroll in new affordable health coverage options.

Columbia River Community Health Services is a recipient of one of these awards. “We are excited to help individuals in Morrow County take advantage of the benefits of the new health insurance coverage options that start January 2014,” stated Mindy Binder, Executive Director of Columbia River Community Health Services. Columbia River Community Health Services has hired Jannette Diaz as an Application Assister who will be contacting individuals and businesses in Morrow County to let them know their options, answer their questions and assist them with their applications to the Cover Oregon Insurance Exchange program. For more information or to set up an appointment with Jannette, please contact the clinic at 541-481-7212.
