Scary? No, but Oregon’s bats are in trouble SALEM, Ore.—While black bats are winging their way to center stage on Halloween decorations and greeting cards, Oregon’s real bats aren’t doing so well: disease and habitat loss are threatening their survival. In fact, eight of Oregon’s 15 bats species are identified in the Oregon Conservation Strategy as in need of help. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists say that there are a number of things people can do to help the state’s only winged mammal—from building bat houses to watching bats to learning about them to protecting their habitats to keeping them safe in winter. “The most important thing people can do at this time of year is to avoid disturbing bats. They are especially vulnerable in the winter when they are hibernating,” said Andrea Hanson, OR Department of Fish and Wildlife, ODFW Strategy Species Coordinator. Oregon’s bats hibernate in caves, mines, buildings or hollow trees. If disturbed, they are forced to burn calories, reducing their chase of survival. Another significant threat to wintering bats is white-nose syndrome, a deadly disease caused by a fungus that thrives in the same cold temperature range as hibernating bats. Once infected, bats get a white fuzzy growth on their noses. The direct cause of death is still unclear, although it is believed the fungus interrupts sleep patterns and causes the hibernating bats to awaken, depleting their fat reserves and causing starvation. “We don’t think white-nose syndrome has arrived in Oregon, but it is a real threat—it has killed more than a million bats in the northeast and is moving across the country,” said Hanson. To help stop white-nose syndrome from spreading, biologists and land managers are asking Oregonians, especially those who

work in or explore caves and mines, to avoid disturbing bats and to decontaminate clothing and gear before and after entering a cave. Learning about bats One way to learn about Oregon’s bats is to download a copy of Batty for Bats: Facts for Kidsfrom ODFW’s website. The fact sheet provides a description

The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports annually presents Fitness Leadership Awards to recognize Oregonians that support the Council’s mission of promoting physical activity and wellness in Oregon. Each year the Governor’s Council asks the mayors of Oregon to nominate persons in their community that they be-

lieve should receive the Fitness Leadership Award. Mayor Phillips nominated Coach Boor for coaching approximately 500 children over the nine years he’s been Riverside’s Head Wrestling Coach. During that time Riverside has qualified for State 45 times and six times Riverside Wrestling has produced the State Champion.

Mow don’t rake fall leaves Irrigon 541-922-2828

by Melinda Myers, author Go green, or should I say brown. Recycle fall leaves into compost, a soil amendment or a nutritious topdressing for the lawn. It saves time, improves your landscape, and is good for the environment. Shred fall leaves with your mower and leave them on the lawn. As long as you can still see the grass blades, your lawn will be fine. Those shredded leaves will break down adding nutrients and organic matter to the soil. It is also a good time to make your last application of fertilizer for your lawn. Use a slow release organic nitrogen fertilizer, like Milorganite, that won’t burn the lawn. Plus, the phosphorous is non-leaching and recent research

found when the micro-organisms break down this fertilizer some of the phosphorous and potassium tied up in the soil is released for plants to use. Northern gardeners with bluegrass, fescue and rye grass lawns can make their last application in late fall before the ground freezes. Those in the south growing Bermuda, St Augustine and other warm weather grasses can make their last fertilization about one month before the lawn goes dormant. That’s about the time of the first killing frost. Fertilizing later can result in winter damage. Bag any leaves you don’t want to leave on the lawn and dig them into annual flower and vegetable gardens. They will break down over winter improving the soil.

Use any remaining shredded leaves as mulch on the soil around perennials, trees and shrubs. The shredded leaves help conserve moisture, moderate temperature extremes and reduce weed problems. And once decomposed, help improve the soil. Still leaves left? Start a compost pile by mixing fall leaves with other yard waste. Don’t add aggressive weeds or those gone to seed. Leave insect and disease infested or chemically treated plant debris out of the pile. Don’t add fat, meat and other animal products that can attract rodents. Moisten and occasionally turn the pile to speed up the process. Soon you will have a wonderful soil conditioner to put back into your landscape.

BEO Bancorp reports 3rd quarter earnings BEO Bancorp (OTCBB:BEOB) and its subsidiary, Bank of Eastern Oregon, announced 3rd quarter 2011 consolidated net income of $502,000 or $0.54 per share, compared to $518,000 or $0.56 per share for 3rd quarter 2010. Year to date earnings were $1,350,000 in 2011, as compared to $1,421,000 for the same period in 2010. Total assets were $251.8 million, up 0.9% year over year. Net loans of $198.25 million were up 3.7% from the same period in 2010, while deposits were at $222.1 million, up 0.5% year over year. “We are pleased with the 3rd quarter and year to date results. Loan volume has increased, and we continue to search out good lending opportunities,” said president and CEO, Jeff Bailey. Chief Financial Officer, Mark Lemmon said, “We continue to increase value to our stockholders as shareholders’ equity is up 8.5% year over year. Our tangible book value per share stands at over $18, a growth of more than $6 per share since the banking crisis and recession began in 2007. This is a direct result of continued profitability and prudent capital management. Year to date Return on Average Assets is 0.72% and Return on Average Equity is 10.98%. That return on equity is impressive considering the Bank’s tier one capital ratio is well above our Oregon and national peer averages.” Lemmon went on to say, “Increased loan volume and steady deposit levels fuel our net interest margin, which dic-

Boardman offers development incentive for new construction At the October 18th Council meeting the Boardman City Council discussed Resolution 17-2011, a Resolution that offers a development incentive in an effort to encourage new homes to be built in Boardman. The Resolution encourages new development by waiving the City’s Sewer and Water System Development Charges (SDC’s), up to $10,000, to property owners developing residential property within the City limits, a cost of about $2500 per unit. The property owner must sign a promissory note with the City stating they will pay the SDC’s if the project does not obtain a Certificate of Occupancy within one year of the purchase of the building permit. If the Certificate of Occupancy is issued within the time limit, the City will provide a SDC waiver letter, which will benefit the property owner in their financing efforts. This incentive is one of two incentives the Council has passed in recent months. The other Resolution offers new homeowners a credit of $100 on their water/sewer bills. Both of these incentives are effective July 1, 2011 through July 1, 2012. In other City news, the Council heard an update from Riverside Jr/Sr High School’s new Principal, Robert Elizondo and Assistant Principal Marie Shimer. The Council also passed a Resolution supporting a grant application to the State of Oregon for the South Main Street Enhancement Project.

Columbia River Community Health Services kicks off winter clothes drive Columbia River Community Health Services in Boardman began their annual coat drive in November. Many who live in the Boardman and Irrigon area are living below the official federal poverty level and finding affordable and warm clothing can be a challenge for families who are struggling with finances.

munity Health Services in Boardman between 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. and people in need of warm clothing can come and pick some up during the same hours.

It really is just a test, folks! On Wednesday, November 9 at 11:00 a.m. Oregonians will hear on their radios and see on their televisions a test of the emergency alert system (EAS). The test will last approximately three (3) minutes. Normal programming will return following the test. This is a nationwide test organized by the FCC and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This test will be different than those we have had in the past. The November 9 test will utilize a “live” national alert code, i.e., a coded message that will present itself as

an actual emergency announcement, not a test. This is necessary in order to allow FCC and FEMA to test the actual working order reliability of legacy EAS equipment and the state of readiness of EAS operators and participants. Television stations are being encouraged to run a scroll at the bottom of the screen throughout the test stating that it is just a test. Oregon Office of Emergency Management (OEM), FEMA, Broadcasters, NOAA and many other agencies are diligently trying to get the word to people that

this is, in fact, a test. Often, citizens who are unsure of whether the alert is real or a test, place calls to 911 which tie up the phone lines for legitimate emergencies. If anyone has questions about the test, please do NOT call 911. Please tell your neighbors and friends about this test so that Oregonians will be the most informed of all the states and will not be caught off guard by this unusual test of the EAS equipment. More information can be found at www.fema.gov/emergency/ ipaws/eas_info.shtm

MC District Attorney opens Boardman satellite office Morrow County District Attorney Justin Nelson today announced the opening of a North Morrow County satellite office. The satellite office will be used part-time by the District Attorney, Deputy District Attorney, and Victim’s Advocate. The office is located at 101 Boardman Ave., Boardman, OR. The office will be used as needed and the public is

encouraged to call (541) 676-5626 to make an appointment to meet with a representative from the District Attorney Office at the Boardman location. “I believe it is important to have a strong presence in North end of the County. With the addition of the satellite office, we will be able to provide an easily accessible location for residents of Boardman

and Irrigon to meet with a representative from the Morrow County District Attorney Office. The addition of this office will also make it easier to work closely with the Boardman Police Department and the Oregon State Police on criminal investigations. I appreciate the assistance of the Morrow County Commissioners in making this possible.”

Career Day for RHS seniors teaches real life job experiences Story and photographs by Jennifer Ashe, RHS Senior On October 19th, sixty-two Riverside High School senior students participated in the joint RHS/ Boardman Chamber of Commerce Career Day. The students job shadowed various companies in the area during the morning hours and then gathered at noon at the Port of Morrow to enjoy lunch and describe their experiences. Pablo Rosales job shadowed the Boardman Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Diane Wolfe. Pablo had chosen to shadow the Chamber because he is interested in what was involved and who the Chamber serve. After he graduates, Pablo wants to go to college and study law because he has seen all the injustices done to good people and wants to help and give back to the community. Sasha’s Jumpstart Java had taken students Kendra Crane and Illiana Amaya to show them the ropes. The students wanted to learn how a small business was run and what the job entailed. Both Kendra and Illiana plan to go to college to study business and hopefully one day start their own business. Students Marco Carranza, Francisco Garcia and Apolinar Miranda had gotten their hands a little dirty at the Boardman Auto Parts- NAPA with manager Ted Toll. All three of these students have an interest in cars and the automotive industry. Marco is planning to go to LinnBenton Community College and study sports science; he plans to be a physical trainer. Apolinar plans to go straight to the workforce after he graduates but says if he has the opportunity to go to college he would like to study mechanics. Francisco is very fascinated by the automotive industry and he plans to go to Lincoln Technical Institute and study mechanical engineering. NAPA Manager Ted Toll is very supportive of the job shadow program “It teaches students what life is really about.” At the City of Boardman/Office, Lila Killingbeck hosted Fabiola Lopez. Fabiola is interested in how the City of Boardman works and what they had to offer. After gradu-

ation from RHS and while she is working, she plans to go to Portland Community College to study business and hopefully play soccer. Ivonnee Dominguez knowledged herself further in the medical field by job shadowing at Columbia River Community Health Services. She is very interested in how Community Health helped the people. After her experience she plans to go to college at Oregon Institute of Technology or Western Oregon University and study nursing because of the great opportunities it has to offer. Boardman Rural Fire Department hosted John Neider, Erick Rodriguez and Jonathon Brown. After his experience, John Neider has found out that what he thought about firefighters was wrong and stated “I was wrong about them and because of what they go through I have more respect for them.” Erick plans to go to Oregon State University for general studies; Jonathon plans to go to Oregon Institute of Technology and study computers, while John Neider hopes to go to college and study business to hopefully own his own someday. At Boardman Pharmacy& Hardware Erica Kummer shadowed pharmacist Ray Michael and learned more about how to be a pharmacist. She plans to go to college at Blue Mountain Community College so she can study how to be a pharmacist and pursue her career even more. Erika Tlapanco and Nayeli Calvillo got to handle some money at the Banner Bank with customer service representative Marcie Rodelo. They both learned how to make proper deposits and the importance of being careful with the customer’s money. Erika plans to go to college at BMCC and study cosmetology and Nayeli hopes to go to the same college and learn how to be a preschool teacher. After the students shadowed the various careers, the students and business hosts met at the Port of Morrow for the Boardman Chamber of Commerce luncheon and discussed the new things they had experienced.

The annual event is sponsored by the Boardman Chamber of Commerce and Riverside Junior/Senior High School.

The Port of Morrow’s Riverfront room was full to bursting when all the participants from the RHS/ Chamber Career Day gathered for lunch on October 19th.

Plant now for spring beauty:

Pharmacy & Your Health

Add bulbs this fall for colorful spring display By Melinda Myers, gardening expert, TV & radio host, author and columnist Don’t miss a chance to color up your spring landscape. Get busy now planting spring flowering bulbs like daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths. Look for creative ways to use bulbs in your landscape. Plant a massive ribbon of blue squills or grape hyacinths to create the illusion of a river in your spring landscape. Or fill the front lawn with shorter bulbs for added color. Just wait until they are done blooming to mow the grass at its highest possible setting. Mix bulbs to double the bloom power or extend their flowering beauty. I like to mix the equally assertive daffodils and squills for a double layer of color. Try combining early blooming crocus with mid spring daffodils, late spring tulips, and even later blooming allium for months of enjoyment. And force a few to enjoy indoors or outdoors in areas where you can’t plant bulbs in the ground. Give these bulbs 15 weeks of temperatures between 35 and 45 degrees to initiate bloom. Forcing bulbs video Plant spring flowering bulbs outdoors in fall, so winter’s chill

can set the flower buds for the beautiful spring flowers. Those gardening in the south need to look for bulbs that require minimal chilling or are pre-cooled for winter planting. Northern gardeners have until the ground freezes to get their bulbs in the ground. Plant bulbs 2 to 3 times their vertical height deep in properly prepared soil. Add a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer like Milorganite to the soil at planting. Water thoroughly as the bulbs are putting down roots before the ground freezes. Those tired of battling the animals may want to plant resistant bulbs such as daffodils, hyacinths, Fritillaria, alliums, Camassia, gloryof-the snow, snow drops squills, and grape hyacinths. Or protect animal favorites like tulips, lilies, and crocus with a bulb dip of Bobbex. Start with a pair of waterproof gloves for this task. Bobbex is safe and natural, but not a fragrance you want to wear all day long. Carefully remove the papery cover and soak the bulbs for 3 to 5 minutes in Bobbex. You will have the best results using the concentrated formula of Bobbex-R Animal repellent. Allow the bulbs to dry before planting. The scent of Bobbex masks the smell of the

bulbs protecting them from hungry critters throughout the winter. Then next spring apply Bobbex to your bulbs and other landscape plants as soon as they emerge and leaf out, protecting them from hungry rabbits, deer, and other animals. So get a jump on the spring season with a bit of fall landscape care.

Make a lasting, positive impact this Holiday Season: Give family and friends gifts from the Arbor Day Foundation Nebraska City, Neb. – Celebrate the holiday season with friends and loved ones this year and give back to the Earth at the same time with the help of the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation. Send holiday greetings and plant a tree – all at the same time – by using the Foundation’s GiveA-Tree cards. Give-A-Tree cards are unique in that every card plants a tree in one of our National Forests in honor of the recipient. By sending Give-A-Tree cards, you are helping to replant forests that have been devastated by wildfires, insects and disease. Give-A-Tree holiday cards come in 20 varieties. This year, an option is available to customize Give-A-Tree cards, including using your favorite picture in a Give-A-Tree photo card.

When you give the gift of Arbor Day Specialty Coffee, you’re helping to preserve the Earth’s precious rain forests. Arbor Day Specialty Coffee is shade-grown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee plantations, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a delicious, rich flavor and helps preserve the rain forest as part of the Foundation’s Rain Forest Rescue program. The Foundation’s Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while at the same time making a positive impact on the environment. Trees in Celebration includes a certificate for the recipient, and for each dollar donated a tree is planted in a damaged forest.

Give special friends a membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, and they will also receive 10 free trees. A membership costs $10, and includes many great benefits, including 10 free trees that will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. “The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the Earth,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact on the world for generations to come.” To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the Earth, go to arborday.org.

Diabetes: How big is the risk? Did you know that one in four people have diabetes and don’t even know it? Could you be one of them? If so, you’re in “good company.” About 26 million Americans have diabetes. And, another 79 million adults in the U.S. have a condition that could turn into diabetes (pre diabetes). Diabetes happens when your body can’t use glucose (a type of sugar) the right way. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose enter cells, where they use this sugar as a source of energy. With diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or it can’t respond well to insulin. Then you can have symptoms of too much glucose, such as increased urination, extreme thirst, and weight loss for no known reason. Certain people are more likely than others to get diabetes. Here’s something that may come as a surprise: During the 12 years of a recent study, diabetes doubled in Asian Americans, most of whom were immigrants. And they were more likely than Caucasians to have diabetes, even though they were less likely to be carrying around extra weight, which is a risk factor for diabetes. What could account for this? Researchers think it’s a combination of genes and lifestyle. It could be that Asians are more susceptible to a poor diet. And, they are more likely to carry any extra weight they do have around their middles. This visceral fat is linked to type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is not something to ignore. If left uncontrolled, it can lead to a whole host of complications, including high blood pressure, kidney failure, eye problems, and nerve damage. That’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. A deadly duo can be in store when diabetes is combined with other health problems. For reasons not well understood, women with both breast cancer and diabetes have a 50 percent increased risk of dying. And, when combined with depression, diabetes means you’re twice as likely to die, especially from heart disease. It could be that people with depression may find it harder to take care of themselves. So you can see why it’s so important to address both conditions. How can you help prevent this serious disease? The steps are simple, but not always easy to do. Healthy diet and weight control are critical. So, too, is physical activity. A recent Australian study showed that the more you walk, the lower your risk of diabetes. They tracked nearly 600 middle-aged adults for five years, giving them a pedometer to use. Here’s what they found: People who walked 10,000 steps daily at least 5 days a week were three times more protected against diabetes than those who walked just 3,000 steps a day – even when other factors such as diet, smoking, and alcohol were taken into account. What else can you do? Well, check with me, of course. I can point you to any diabetes information or products our store provides to either help you prevent diabetes or better manage the disease, if you already have it.

City of Boardman announces winter Snow & Ice Control Program We all know how unpredictable the weather can be in our area. We have experienced winters (normally December, January and February) with no snow accumulation, to winters such as we’ve had in the past that deposited heavy snow accumulation. With a population of over 3000 and 80 plus lane-miles of streets, the City is continually striving to providae an acceptable level of snow and ice control. NORMAL SNOW CONDITIONS Our fleet of snow fighting equipment is readied before the ice and snow seasons each year. One, five-yard dump truck with sanding box and plow, 2.5 ton dump truck with sanding box and plow, combined with a crew of trained equipment operators, will keep major streets passable. The City has established procedures and policies for addressing snow plowing and sanding of the streets. The procedures and policies are set on a priority basis, which set predetermined routes as follows: First Priority: All major arterial streets and arterial intersections considered to be the highest priorities to keep open the main streets and roadway systems connecting the fire station, police station, emergency medical services, and schools.

Irrigon 541-922-2828

Boardman 541-481-3445

www.beobank.com 1-877-472-2617

Second Priority: Collector streets and selected areas such as steep hills and other problem areas identified by the public works department and/or police department. Third Priority: Residential Streets CITIZEN RESPONSIBILITIES Snow can be beautiful, but it also can create hazards. When residents fail to clear their sidewalks, the result can be a treacherous ice patch. We need your help in protecting pedestrians from possible injury. Residents are responsible to maintain their sidewalks and driveways adjacent to their property. Please pile snow on your yard, not in the street. If your sidewalk is icy, you may correct the hazard by applying a heavy coat of sand. Handicapped, elderly or other individuals unable to clean snow from their sidewalks may choose to contact someone to do this job for them. The following may provide this service to you: RHS Wrestling Team – Coach Boor 481- 2525 COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT SNOW REMOVAL Q: Can’t the City remove the snow they put in my driveway and sidewalks? A: Our primary duty is to open and keep open the main roadway

system. Considering the large number of driveways and amount of sidewalks in the City, it is too costly and time consuming, and would require additional City staff and equipment to perform this service. Q: Why not plow to the center? A: Plowing snow and piling it to the center of a street causes a hazardous situation. Traffic flow is restricted by eliminating a portion of a lane and this practice can also create sight obstructions for low vehicles. The freeze-thaw cycle creates daily problems when the melting snow freezes on the road surface every evening. Q: Can I park my car on the street? A: Yes, on those streets where parking is normally allowed. However, having to maneuver a snowplow in and out between parked vehicles can not only be dangerous, but also nerve-wracking for our drivers and is not an efficient way to plow the snow. One must be aware that if a car is parked on the side of the street, we could plow your car in with a snow bank. Q: Why are residential streets seldom plowed? A: With over 80 lane miles of streets to maintain, with limited equipment and staff, it is usually not possible to plow all of the streets. We make every effort to get to the lower priority streets when conditions allow.
