thecity a history... Oregon City is the first incorporated city west of the Mississippi River. Founded in 1829 by Dr. John McLoughlin at the base of the thundering Willamette Falls, Oregon City was the destination for thousands of Oregon Trail pioneer settlers in the 1840s. With its rich heritage and natural beauty, the City at the End of the Oregon Trail continues to connect visitors to our nation’s pioneering past. Oregon City was the first State Capital and is the County Seat of Clackamas County. Oregon City is home to shopping areas, recreational opportunities, businesses, and a wide variety of historical and cultural attractions dedicated to celebrating the Pioneer spirit.

a message from the city manager Welcome to our community & thank you for checking out the second edition of “Oregon City Around Town.” Oregon City has a wonderful reputation for its rich history, & has made great progress in recent years, developing new parks, improving infrastructure, supporting enhancements in our downtown, & renewing our focus on public safety. As a new member of the community, I have discovered an “authenticity” in the people, the places, the events, & the daily

rhythm of life here that is compelling & unique among all of the places I have lived. Folks here do not notice how large or small their neighbor’s house is, they simply smile sincerely & say “hello.” Oregon City’s authenticity is changing the way it is viewed across the metro region. It is an asset, an experience if you will, that cannot be fully appreciated unless you spend time here. So, I invite you to come, join us, share ideas with us, dine with us, stay awhile & remember to “buy local” when you shop for the holidays…but beware, the longer you are here, the more likely you will stay, perhaps for a lifetime. z

schools

a message from the superintendent Greetings! I’m proud to serve as the superintendent of the best school district in Oregon. We have the most skilled teachers and support staff in the state, and they are dedicated to each and every student’s learning. Year in and year out our schools post test scores well above the state average in every subject and every grade level. Our flagship, Oregon City High School (OCHS), has a long tradition of athletic achievement, but a strong athletic tradition is only a small part of the picture. OCHS also has an outstanding fine arts program. It has one of the best choir, band and drama programs in the state. We are particularly proud of our academic program. OCHS has several opportunities that challenge scholars and allow them to earn college credits while in high school. There are 31 high

school courses in which students can also earn credits at Clackamas Community College. In addition, there are 12 advanced placement courses for which colleges and universities grant credit if students receive a passing score on the national AP tests. As a result of taking these challenging courses, many of our students head off to college with a year or more of college credits in hand. Oregon City High School’s latest state assessments in reading and language arts were only topped by three other mid or large high schools in the state. Its mathematics scores were only topped by one other school. Number four and number two….not bad, but we’re heading to number one on both of these assessments. Athletics -- fine arts -- academics -- I challenge any school in the state to make a better showing. If you have a child in our schools– congratulations! If you’re thinking about locating here– welcome. You’re going to love our schools. z

CCC & Oregon City: a valuable partnership For nearly 45 years, Clackamas Community College has been an integral part of the Oregon City community. The changes in the city have been reflected in changes at the college, as we have grown from temporary modular classrooms in the late 1960s to three vibrant, full-service campuses. The college and the city are connected in countless ways. High school students turn to CCC to earn Advanced College Credit and for industrial arts and alternative education. More than 60 percent of Oregon City High School graduates choose CCC to continue their education. CCC has strong ties to Oregon City business and civic groups. More than 150 Oregon City businesses took advantage of the services of our

Small Business Development Center last year. Our Customized Training and Development Services provide classes and training for employers. The CCC Foundation awarded scholarships to 62 Oregon City students last year, a tuition value of $82,379. As community priorities change, CCC responds to the changing needs. We have greatly increased our outreach and services to veterans over the past few years. We continually assess our offerings to adjust to changes in the economy and marketplace. For more than a year, we have offered “midnight welding” classes. This fall, we begin offering a renewable energy program for the first time. I value the input of the community.

homework’s hidden values by Liz Fox

© Helder Almeida - Fotolia.com

When I was a classroom teacher I went through the extra work of generating nightly homework and then followed up the next day to collect and correct the homework. As all teachers know, this creates an extra load of work for the teacher. However, I always believed the benefits for my students justified any extra work it created for me, the teacher. Homework provided my students the opportunity to independently practice and strengthen their academic skills. Today, as a tutor, I can still attest to the obvious values of homework, along with its “hidden values.” I recommend to all parents and students, at the right age, the following article which was published in the “Sacramento Bee,” dated September 10, 1988. The original article was written by John Rosemond, a family psychologist. He sums up his article with this comment: To what do these “Seven Hidden Values” add? To self-esteem of course! Homework gives a student a chance to develop a positive sense of self worth. Homework can be a character-building experience. Managed properly by teachers and parents, homework gives the student a chance to practice and strengthen academic skills. There are other “hidden values” in homework which can equip the student with emotional and behavioral skills. These skills can help the student to perform more successfully in the adult world. Some of these life skills are: responsibility, autonomy, perseverance, time management, initiative, self-reliance, and resourcefulness. Responsibility: To fulfill your obligations; to assume “ownership” of that which rightly belongs to you; to hold yourself accountable for both your mistakes as well as your successes. Homework is the student’s responsibility. When parents get too involved, they set the process on its head. The “lessons” get done, but the real lesson doesn’t get learned. Autonomy: To self-govern; to stand on your own two feet. Homework is the first time someone, other than the parent, has consistently assigned tasks to the student. In that sense, homework breaks new ground. The student is now accountable outside the family. The manner in which this golden opportunity is managed will either enhance or obstruct the student’s progress toward independence.

8

FALL

Perseverance: To confront challenges with determination; to strive in spite of difficulties; to complete what you set out to accomplish. If the Little Train That Could had had a mother train who, upon seeing her child’s struggle, got behind and pushed, there would have been no point to the story. Likewise, there is no point to a student doing homework if every time the student becomes frustrated, parents make it all better. Time Management: To organize time effectively and productively; to complete tasks on schedule without compromising quality. The shortest route to a nightly homework marathon is to tell the student when to begin the homework, but not when it must be finished. Instead of learning to manage time, the student learns to waste it. Initiative: To be self-motivated and assertive; to be decisive in defining and pursuing personal goals. It boils down to this: Who decides when it is time for the student to begin homework. Self-reliance: To have trust and self-confidence in your abilities. Managed properly, homework empowers, affirms, enlarges, fulfills, actualizes and enables the student’s capacity for competence. Mismanaged, it diminishes, deflates and disables. There is no in-between.

Resourcefulness: To find, invent, or adapt creative means to solve problems. After all, this is the business, the very stuff of being human, isn’t it? Homework provides the form, the student provides the substance. Liz Fox has been engaged in education throughout the past 37 years. Her experiences range from classroom aide to child guidance counselor to classroom teacher. Now she owns her own tutoring business, The Tutor House. She can be reached at 503-522-0972.

music is magical by Judy Stanley

Music is magical. Playing music has been linked to measurable improvements in human well-being. It can soothe our soul, rekindle memories, inspire creativity, make us move and lower our blood pressure. It can reduce job burnout and improve our mood. The key to reaping these (and more) benefits is the act of playing music. Music is little more than ear candy for the brain if you simply listen. Researchers have concluded that you have to play it, sing it, and move to it if you want to experience music’s proven benefits.

three of our senses: sight, hearing, touch. Not only do we engage these senses, we train them to work with our brain to develop the mental and physical skills we need to create music. A brief review of some of the many studies about the benefits of playing music reveals more reasons to pursue music at all ages than most of us realize. It is shown and/or linked to the production of many benefits.

Learning to make music is like learning a new language. Playing music is a mental and physical activity. It stimulates brain development in students of all ages. It requires that we engage and integrate

healthy & imaginative school lunches By Carol Pauli Among the shopping, organizing and planning for back to school, lurks the question “What will I pack in those new lunch boxes?” I always find myself not wanting to put the same tired lunch ideas in a freshly cleaned or new stateof-the-art insulated lunch box. I also believe any new ideas for lunch items need to pass the test of easy, nutritious and appealing (not just to me but my kids). From my experience of over 18 years in the food industry, reading through recipe books and internet sites, and most importantly from my experience of packing lunch every day for my own school age children, comes these ideas. An insulated lunch box with water bottle holder on the side, a small thermos soup container, plastic sandwich box and various size snack containers are the basic supplies to house a packed lunch.

Packed Lunch Strategies: Whenever I cook noodles or rice for dinner I cook extra to use for lunches during the week. Sunday evening while I make dinner I do one or more of the following: make a salad sandwich spread, cut snack vegetables, or hard-boil eggs for the week. When I bake, I make double batches of whole grain mini muffins, healthy cookies, and granola bars to stow away in the freezer for future use. I try to include all food groups by packing when needed, sides of veggie sticks, hardboiled egg, whole grain snacks (such as crackers, mini whole grain rice cakes, mini muffins, granola bars) and a dairy, soy or rice milk protein (such as milk, cheese stick, cottage cheese, or small yogurt). To avoid excess sugar I forgo fruit juice and pack a water bottle.

FALL

Packed Lunch Ideas: 1. Sandwich wraps using whole grain wraps or tortillas. Filling ideas: turkey with avocado. Turkey, cream cheese and cranberry sauce. Chicken or egg salad fillings. 2. Teriyaki Bento. In a microwavable bowl add leftover brown rice with leftover chicken add a few small pieces of broccoli, cabbage or carrots drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Microwave until very hot, transfer to a thermos soup container that has been preheated first by hot water. 3. Whole Grain Pita bread triangles with hummus, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes and snow peas. 4. From leftover chicken, cold chicken pieces with a dipping sauce and fresh vegetables. 5. Soup or chili in a thermos. Leftovers or heated from a healthy canned variety.

8.

Cheesy noodles. In a microwavable bowl add leftover whole grain noodles, shredded cheese, and a teaspoon or so of butter. Microwave and stir to coat noodles well with cheese sauce. Veggie dog slices and small pieces of broccoli are add-in ideas. Burrito roll ups. Spread a whole grain tortilla with refried beans, brown rice, and sprinkle with shredded cheese; roll up like a jelly roll. Microwave to melt cheese. Cut into one inch widths. Pack with salsa, sour cream and mashed up avocado. Hors d’oeuvres lunch. Turkey rolled up with cream cheese or sliced cheese inside. Secure with a toothpick. Pack with crackers, mini containers of olives, pickles, pickled corn and carrot sticks.

Imagine that you open the refrigerator and there is no food. Now imagine that you have no money to buy the food for that refrigerator. And now imagine you are a child who experiences this everyday, coming home from school and knowing that you will not have your next meal until the following school day. What would you do and how would you provide food for yourself? For a variety of reasons, children in our community are going without and not receiving the minimum of three balanced food meals a day. Through the public school system children have access to food through free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs, but many of the same children may not have had enough or any food to eat on the weekends. Oregon City’s Backpack Buddies is now answering the call to feed our children on the weekends! Starting in January 2009 with nine confidentially selected children, this program has grown in feeding almost 70 children by the end of the 2009-2010 school years in our local Oregon City Community. Beginning this fall, this program will add an additional site and begin feeding children in the Head Start programs. Children are anonymously and confidentially selected by school personnel to be recipients of the food. A checklist is used to determine if a child qualifies to be a recipient, which is composed of observations from school personnel as well as a fa-

miliarity with the families. The family of the child is contacted for permission to participate in the program, but is not obligated to sign up. Once written permission is received, the child is included in the program with no strings attached. All siblings of the elementary aged child are also included. Food for Backpack Buddies is gathered and distributed by the supporting churches of the program. To date, Prince of Life Lutheran, Trinity Lutheran, Oregon City Christian, and Oregon City Evangelical Churches have combined forces with countless area businesses to feed local children. Each church

gathers kid-friendly and nutritious meals which include soups, chili, packaged fruit, juice pouches, Easy Macs, and snacks, such as cheese and crackers to be packed into a bag to feed a child for the weekend. The bags of food are delivered to the classroom teachers. The teachers distribute the bags discretely, often tucking the bags into backpacks during a time when all of the children are out of the classroom, such as recess. The Oregon City Backpack Buddies program is relatively new, but is ambitiously working to spread into all elementary schools which need

tips&trends the program. This program is similar to Backpack programs found all around the country. Each program has a similar mission to feed children who are hungry while maintaining their dignity. As in most Backpack programs, Oregon City’s Backpack Buddies is helping to keep our children’s stomachs filled so that they can concentrate at school and focus on just being kids. You can help in a variety of ways. Food and monetary donations keep the children fed! In many cases, the program has been able to invite youth groups to assemble the bags. This has become a great service project for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts,

baseball teams, church youth groups, and many more! If your church or organization is interested in supporting an area school, this is also needed to expand our outreach into other Oregon City elementary schools. This fall, we will begin distributing collection boxes to area businesses. If your business would like to display a box to collect food items, please contact us at clwarner@ocbackpackbuddies.org.

buy local oregon city Keep it here sums up what the partnership of Buy Local Oregon City is all about. This partnership between local businesses, vendors and citizens has a mission of bringing the local community together to support the economic vitality and quality of life in Oregon City. When a group of business leaders came together to develop a grass roots plan to promote our local economy, the Oregon City Chamber of Commerce also had a similar idea outlined as a 2010 goal. Great minds think alike and this partnership sets the tone for Buy Local Oregon City, citizens working together in and for our community. The idea is simple. A business with the Buy Local Oregon City sticker in their window agrees to promote Oregon City businesses by committing to make a conscious effort to buy local when possible and raise awareness of this movement through business and community activities. Citizens who support these businesses are supporting more than just local commerce. They are supporting the vitality and quality of life in Oregon City. Dollars spent local-

ly are reinvested into our city generating local jobs, income taxes, and property taxes. These funds can then be reinvested into our schools, city infrastructure and community programs. Local businesses are invested in our community by linking neighborhoods, and supporting our schools and causes. Buying locally is a sustainable practice; saving time, fuel and resources. Beyond the facts and data for supporting local commerce, one of the hidden benefits is involvement and connection to the community. There is value in knowing the faces and places within your community. Community commerce can provide an opportunity for business representatives and citizens to get to know each other on a first name basis, while seeing each other

around town in their various community roles and organizations. Discovering the diversity and uniqueness of the community is another morsel to the equation. Oregon City resident Patti Burke expresses, “It is a treat to discover a shop


keepingitlocal in town I never knew existed or to discover that I can save money and time by having services provided by a business right down the street. It is almost like a scavenger hunt; what is around me that I may have not noticed and what will I find? It also means a lot to me that I am supporting a business that supports the community. I see how they sponsor local community events, non-profits and help get the word out for community events even just by helping display a poster. Somehow it is satisfying to give my support to business like this.” Mary Heins of My Mother Knows…LLC gift shop feels that local business can “satisfy the needs of the neighborhood shopper by having a pulse on citizen needs while offering a variety of price points. If I can satisfy, they will not have to go outside of the community. I offer unique services in my business and enjoy working together with other local businesses to complement each other as opposed to competing”. Further information for citizens and businesses interested in participating is available at www. buylocal.oregoncity.org. On the website you’ll find a member directory, sponsor page, Q & A, events, local photos, and information on how to participate. Buy Local founding members will meet with interested business representa-

tives to obtain their written commitment, give them a sticker and obtain their information to add to the website directory. There is no fee to the business to become a Buy Local Oregon City member. The emphasis is on the commitment to be mindful of dollars spent and reinvesting them into our community. Sponsorship opportunities are available and provide additional benefits to businesses who wish to contribute further to Buy Local Oregon City’s mission. Whatever role you may have in the community as a business or a citizen the message is simple: Buy Local Oregon CityFull and Service Keep it here. GolfzShop

to give is to receive by Pamela White

While America is known as one of the most generous nations in the world, we seem to become more aware of the needs of others, as the days get colder and the holidays get closer. In my work, I’ve seen firsthand the incredible generosity provided to people in need and their overwhelming appreciation. Here are some ideas to make a difference in the community while giving you a chance to make your holiday season more meaningful. Shopping with a Cause Over the years I’ve found myself shopping for holiday gifts and wondering if my loved one will use or even appreciate the gift I’ve so carefully chosen. Whether we like to admit it or not, sometimes our loved ones don’t really need much of anything. So, consider buying a gift for someone who really needs it. Many organizations help their clients during the holiday season (throughout the year) and need a wide range of donations. Usually it’s as easy as checking your favorite charitable organization’s website for their specific needs. For example, at Christmas time the Clackamas Women’s Shelter needs six to twelve really, nice bathrobes to give to our shelter moms. You can search the stores’ amazing sales and buy a beautiful, warm, cozy bathrobe for someone in need. Then, lay the robe out nicely, take a color photo of it, and include a note to your loved one about sending the gift in their honor. Place the photo and literature from the organization in a beautifully wrapped package and present to your loved one. He or she will be delighted, you will feel great and your gift will be put to good use. Just

FALL

call your favorite organization and they’ll let you know how you can give a gift that won’t end up in the back of the closet. Get While You Give I’m sure that everyone enjoys an evening out or an afternoon with the family from time-to-time. Why not incorporate some family fun or friend time into an event that will help support a nonprofit organization? For example, Oregon City Burgerville offers to charitable organizations a designated evening when a percentage of all proceeds are donated to the organization. Both Burgerville and the recipient organization advertise this effort to double the impact! Local photographer Tania Allen of Paradise Photography offers special photo packages through Santa Clause with a Cause then donates a percentage of her proceeds to charity. This is the perfect way to capture the wonder of Santa in your children’s eyes without the mayhem of the long, mall lines while helping a local charity. Check newspaper listings or your favorite organization’s website for upcoming opportunities; then, make your next family outing or date night one that brings you fun and brings others help.

Give the Gift of Giving Often during this holiday season (as well as birthdays and other holidays) those in need are unable to afford to give gifts to their loved ones. This can be especially hard for families with children. Donating gift cards of all kinds to your favorite organization may allow them to empower their clients; a gift card can provide a small amount of autonomy and dignity in gift purchasing. Pre-paid Visa or Mastercard gift cards allow purchases anywhere but any gift card from grocery stores to gas stations might be appropriate depending on the organization. If your favorite charity doesn’t list gift cards on their “wish list” I would encourage you to give them a call and ask what would be most helpful. Party for a Reason It is such a privilege for me to see generosity and kindness in action. A fun way for you and your friends or family to make a difference is throw a party and have the guests bring gifts for a specific need or organization. You could have a Holiday Tool Time party and donate hammers, drills and levels to a local Habitat for Humanity. Host a baby shower for a local relief nursery or

Yes. We Are Lending To You And Your Business. Recently a local “fairy princess” celebrated her 7th birthday by inviting her guests to bring items from the Clackamas Women’s Services shelter wish list instead of birthday gifts. You can see from the picture that this birthday girl wields a powerful, magic wand and an even bigger heart! other organization that serves children. Create a “Have your cake but give it away too” party by serving fancy cakes but have guests bring a check or cash to donate to the local food bank or Meals on Wheels program. Of course this “party for a reason” idea is good all year long whether you’re celebrating a birthday or even TGIF! Last December, a Clackamas Women’s Services donor dropped off over 30 beautiful well-made toys to our local toy drive. “We’ve been doing this neighborhood Christmas party for ten years, and this year we all decided that the $10 gift exchange was really a waste of money,” the party hostess told me. She went on to say that families brought the toys to the party and displayed them for everyone to see. The hostess ended by saying through her bright smile, “We had so much fun and felt so much better about the way we spent our money that we’re going to do it again next year.” Traditional is Powerful Finally, the most traditional and powerful way to support non-profits is by making a cash donation. Charitable organizations depend on unrestricted gifts from generous individuals, businesses and community organizations to make ends meet. Whether your gift is $25 or $1000 it will be sincerely appreciated. If you want to make giving more meaningful, take the time to browse your favorite organization’s website and get to know them better. If you’re looking for an organization to support you can perform an online search for the type of non-profit that interests you. Then sit down with your family for a meaningful discussion. Feel free to call the organization you support or are considering supporting. All organizations welcome phone calls from supporters. However you decide to give this holiday season (as well as year round), remember that whatever you do you are making a difference. On

A Warm Welcome from the Church in Oregon City The Church in Oregon City welcomes you! We invite you to discover new bonds of friendship, the joy of worship, the satisfaction of service and especially God’s amazing love and grace. The leaders of local churches and ministries listed below meet together monthly for fellowship, planning and prayer. We’re from diverse denominations and backgrounds, but we join together in one cause in the service of Jesus Christ. It’s our conviction that we serve our community best by uniting around our common heritage of Christian faith- rather than focusing on our differences. We unite around an ancient statement of Christian faith, known as the Apostles’ Creed: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven; and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic(universal) Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen. Whatever your own background or beliefs, we extend an open hand. Come experience our faith first-hand. You’ll be glad you did.

ways to help There are many tangible ways for you to make a difference this holiday season! Individuals, families, churches and businesses can easily contribute money, time and other resources. The words of an individual helped by one of these organizations are well worth reading: “You’ve made our Christmas so much merrier at a time when our lives were so chaotic. You’ll never know how much we appreciate it.” St. John the Apostle Catholic Church provides a free, sit down Thanksgiving Day Dinner. Warm clothes are also available that day to those in need at no cost. Donate clean, well-cared-for clothing to St. Johns Catholic Church or volunteer to help with the meal. Call 503-742-8430. Beavercreek Lions Club have collected items for local families in need for 25 years and help 120 families. To donate, drop non-perishable food and/or unwrapped toys in the decorated barrels that are located at all schools within the Oregon City School District. There is also a toy drop box at BCT on Henrici Rd. For more information, call 503-342-6699.

Clackamas Women’s Services offers shelter and care to local survivors of domestic violence. The best way to support these families is to purchase gift cards allowing these moms to purchase gifts for their children. Otherwise donate cash or unwrapped gifts like warm robes for moms and toys for kids. There are opportunities to adopt a family, too. Call 503-722-2366 x102 or visit www.cwsor.org Compassion in Action Clackamas County matches members of the community, service organizations and companies who contribute their time and resources with families and/or individuals in need, and provide them with holiday food boxes & toys.

healthy eating during the holidays by Janet Mann

© Clipart.com

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas... What do all these holidays have in common? Food in the company of family and friends. In a study of holiday weight change published in 2000, the average weight gain during the holidays was just one pound. This sounds small until you realize that the study also showed that this weight was not lost during the following year. Over the years, this innocent one point weight gain each year really adds up as we Americans get older. What can you do about it besides refusing to go to another holiday party? Remember, holiday parties and social occasions have both food and people in common. Just consider these suggestions for de-emphasizing the food and re-emphasizing the people. Let’s start with the people. Getting together with others to visit and have fun is the best part of the holidays. Maximize the visiting and socializing and you’ll have fun with no increase in your waistline. The fun of creating a clever costume, dressing up and showing off a costume results in more excitement for kids of all ages than the candy they get. Gatherings between Thanksgiving and New Years should be more about the people and less about the food. Emphasize getting together and visiting throughout this treasured season. When it comes to de-emphasizing the food, you don’t need to change the entire character of the occasion. There will be eating. For celebrations

you’re organizing, keep the food simple and nourishing. An end of the summer barbeque can capitalize on all the fresh fruits and vegetables available to add to the centerpiece of lean hamburgers, chicken or smaller size steaks. For a Halloween party, make it a simple meal of chili and cornbread along with games. No one will dispute that Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the turkey, dressing and the family’s favorite pie. Consider those three foods the centerpiece and simply add vegetables and whole grain rolls to them to balance it out. For a holiday open house, have all the food in one place with lots of places for people to sit and visit. Always remember to have water and other low calorie beverages available at any celebration. For occasions you are attending, determine your plan of attack before you get there. Eat light but don’t skip meals on the day of the event; you don’t want to arrive hungry. After you arrive, check out the food situation. Take a look at the food itself before you decide what you are going to eat. Fill your plate just once. Pick out the one or two items that you really enjoy and don’t want to miss (no matter what they are or how rich and high calorie the food is), then fill up your plate with vegetables and/or fruits, salads, and whole grain breads. If your plate is full but not overflowing, no one will notice that you didn’t choose everything available. This strategy will help you

prevent the notorious “food pushers” who insist on everyone leaving stuffed! Now, take your plate and visit with the people you want to see and enjoy yourself. Try these tips along with a few planned walks and the holidays will be just as enjoyable without the extra pounds. z Janet Mann of Janet Mann Nutrition Consulting is a registered and licensed dietician who provides nutritional counseling to get individuals and families on the Rd to better health.

fall & winter fire safety tips by Kari Shanklin

Public Education Officer, Clackamas Fire District #1

© Clackamas Fire

October is National Fire Prevention Month and as cooler weather approaches, Clackamas Fire District #1 wants to remind you to think about fall and winter fire safety. • Install & Maintain Working Smoke Alarms. Smoke alarms are one of the best safety devices available to protect you, your family, and your home. Install them in every bedroom and on every level of your home. Test smoke alarms regularly and replace batteries when needed. • Plan and Practice your Escape. Plan and practice an escape route so that you can get out of every room in case of fire. Plan an alternate route in case you encounter smoke. Choose an outside meeting place where everyone will gather. Once you are outside, stay out! • Space Heaters Need Space. In the winter, heating equipment is the leading cause of home fires. Keep portable space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn, including curtains, furniture, people, and pets. Never leave space heaters on when you leave home or go to bed. Look for a safety testing label such as ETL, UL or CSA. • Watch What You Heat! Never leave cooking unattended. Keep cooking areas clear of combustibles and wear short or close fitting sleeves when you cook. Keep the handles of pots turned inward so they can’t be knocked off or pulled over. If you have a kitchen fire, protect your hand with a pot holder, carefully slide a lid over the pan to smother the flames, and turn off the burner. • Smoke Carefully. Carelessly discarded cigarettes are the leading cause of fire deaths in the United States. Never smoke in bed or when you are drowsy. Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers and place cigarette butts in water

before discarding them. Before going to bed, check under and around cushions for smoldering cigarettes. • Matches & Lighters are Tools, Not Toys. Store them up high where kids can’t reach them. Teach your children that matches and lighters are tools for adults, and if they find matches or lighters, they should tell a grown-up immediately. • Use Electricity Safely. Replace any electrical cords that are cracked or frayed. Don’t overload outlets or use extension cords that are damaged or run them under rugs. • Protect Yourself from Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning. Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as “the silent killer” because you can’t see it, smell it or taste it. It’s a deadly gas that is produced by fuel-burning heating equipment, such as furnaces, wood stoves, fireplaces, and kerosene heaters. Install at least one CO alarm near sleeping areas. Have a trained professional inspect, clean and tune-up your central heating system. Fireplaces and woodstoves should be inspected yearly. Keep gas appliances properly adjusted and serviced. Never use an oven or range to heat your home, and never use a gas or charcoal grill inside your home or a closed garage. Portable electric generators must be used outside only. • Be Ready if the Power Goes Out. Stock up on batteries, flashlights, portable radios, canned foods, manual can openers, bottled water and blankets. Use flashlights instead of candles to avoid a possible fire hazard. Prepare a 72 Hour Survival Kit.

• Holiday Safety. Select a fresh holiday tree; needles should be green and hard to pull back from the branches, and the trunk should be sticky to the touch. Don’t place your tree close to a heat source, and be careful not to drop cigarette ashes near a tree. Don’t leave your live tree up for more than two weeks, and keep the tree stand filled with water. When the tree becomes dry, discard it promptly to a recycling center or have it hauled away by a community pick-up service. Never dispose of tree branches in a fireplace or wood burning stove. Inspect holiday lights for frayed wires, bare spots, gaps in the insulation, broken or cracked sockets, and excessive kinking or wear before putting them away. Use only lighting listed by an approved testing laboratory. Do not overload electrical outlets, and don’t link more than three light strands unless the directions indicate it is safe. Connect strings of lights to an extension cord before plugging the cord into the outlet. Periodically check the wires; they shouldn’t be warm to the touch. Don’t leave holiday lights on unattended. Use only nonflammable decorations and place them away from heat sources. If you use a metallic or artificial tree, make sure it is flame retardant. Never put wrapping paper in a fireplace! Candles should be in stable holders and placed where they can’t be knocked over. Never leave the house with candles burning. Never put lit candles on a tree, and don’t go near a holiday tree with an open flame. z

hidden treasures find these secret hot spots by Julie Paulsen

Every town has hidden treasures from walking paths to artwork and cultural experiences. Oregon City is no exception. I have come across some of these hidden treasures on my own. After living here for 15 years, however, I am still surprised to learn about new ones. I invite all of you to share your hidden treasures. Send me a location, description, and a photo if possible to jpaulsen@oregoncity.org. I will share these treasures in upcoming issues.

A concrete walkway, with a variety of low stone and metal walls, runs from the parking lot by the VFW Hall off Tumwater Drive, past the upper entrance to the Municipal Elevator to the stairs that descend the bluff alongside Singer Creek Falls ending at the base of the elevator. The path also provides an opportunity to get a closer look

at some of the historic homes situated on the bluff. They demonstrate a range of architectural styles including Bungalow and Queen Anne. Grassy areas and park benches contribute to a peaceful place for strolling or sitting to enjoy the view.

Oregon City Murals While driving on 10th Street to go up Singer Hill or on 99E across from Blue Heron Paper Mill, it is almost impossible to miss three murals painted on the sides of the buildings. Not everyone may be aware that there are five more murals in Downtown Oregon City. The murals, completed in the early 1990’s, tell the story of Oregon’s pioneering heritage. There is now a walking tour brochure to enhance your enjoyment of these eight murals by providing information about who painted them and the story behind the

images. “Painting the Town” is available at businesses down on Main Street, in the Municipal Elevator and the Chamber office located at 1201 Washington Street. While not included in the brochure, there are also murals on the side of the Antique Mall Building on 7th and Center Streets as well as St. John the Apostle Catholic School on 5th and Washington Streets.

Oregon City Bridge, © Mike Goff

bridge work ahead by Amber Holveck

Plans to rehabilitate the historic Oregon City/West Linn Arch Bridge have been in the works for several years now. The bridge, designed by Conde B. McCullough, was constructed in 1922 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our Arch Bridge is unique due to its concrete covering called Gunite. After nearly 90 years of use the bridge requires rehabilitation. Due to the narrowness of the bridge lanes and other factors, the project will result in a full 24 month closure. This full bridge closure will occur after January 15, 2011, at the earliest.

This complicated bridge rehab project is managed by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). ODOT developed a special contracting process to retain a primary contractor who has specific experience to complete the job effectively and efficiently. To provide incentive for meeting the 24 month completion expectation, daily financial penalties to the contractor were built into the agreement. In May, Wildish Standard Paving of Eugene was named the successful bidder. All stakeholders believed choosing an Oregon based

The public may have observed the contractor mobilizing equipment, establishing mooring points for the barges and the barges moving into place on the river. Over the course of the fall the public will be notified of intermittent single lane closures. With a full bridge closure in January 2011, residents, commuters and businesspeople may need to reexamine their typical routes between Oregon City and West Linn. ODOT will offer a continuous shuttle service from Downtown Oregon City to West Linn every day. For more information about the shuttle service and the project, visit the project site page at www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/ REGION1 or contact Susan Hanson, ODOT Community Affairs Coordinator at 503-731-3490. All of us impacted by the bridge closure will need to demonstrate patience and endurance. Continue to patronize our Downtown Oregon City businesses to help ensure that in two years when the bridge work is completed we will have a safe, spectacular bridge and a thriving downtown, too. z

citizens speak out by Julie Paulsen

This November, the election of a new Mayor and two new City Commissioners will be very important here in Oregon City. From my perspective as both a resident and the Communications Coordinator for the Oregon City Chamber, there are two groups vying for city leadership that view Oregon City very differently. Voters this year must decide if they like the vision of Oregon City as an up-and-coming, regional center that incorporates our heritage into planned growth or prefer a return to a small town focused on its heritage. On June 23, I began an online survey asking citizens of Oregon City to share their thoughts on some of the local issues. The survey was initially open for only two weeks, and I received 100 responses. The survey has since been reopened and a link is available on our website at www. oregoncity.org. This survey is not intended to be scientific but suggests trends and voter opinions. The complete set of responses will be given to the current City Commissioners and the candidates the first of October. For each of the topics addressed in the survey, I am including comments from respondents that illustrate both sides of the issue. After reading through these comments, I encourage you to take a few minutes to complete the survey yourself. You have an opportunity to tell the candidates your vision for Oregon City’s future. Proposed Developments on the Rossman Landfill and at Clackamette Cove • These developments will draw other communities into Oregon City to shop and bring a variety of minimum to living wage jobs. • We will lose so much of our small community atmosphere and they will have a negative impact on Main Street and the Oregon City Shopping Center.

End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center Site • Redevelop the museum as a heritage site with more interactive exhibits. • Repurpose the site as a recreational center with ballparks or a community center. Public Safety including Police and Fire • We need more police per capita and a better facility for police. • Don’t notice any lack of service and am not aware of extra needs. The City’s Role in Job Development • Government needs to keep their nose out of it and let the private sector take care of it.

In summary, these comments provide a snapshot of what your fellow citizens think about Oregon City issues. What is your opinion? Please complete the anonymous survey available at www. oregoncity.org. Your comments will be shared with the people who will be making the decisions about our future. z

Helping you find your way home.

• The City should seek out and woo manufacturing facilities. Property Annexation The majority of respondents, to-date, did not understand the issues surrounding annexation or found the question itself confusing. However, there were interesting comments. • I support annexation if the financial impact is covered by the developer. This includes the whole scope of the project including traffic flow and impact to residents. • I support all annexation. They drive on our roads; our police protect them from crime when they come through our city; they utilize our businesses and services. They should be paying Oregon City property tax. Urban Renewal • Urban renewal has a function in reviving business, providing updated city services, and creating growth. • Should not be used to enable a developer to build on a prime spot that will generate a huge profit for the developer.

inspiration . . . . . . I’ve always enjoyed a good steak. Many years ago I added a Creole shrimp topping to a steak for a dinner special and have never looked back. One of my favorite things to do at the restaurant is to experiment with new and different toppings for our Choice USDA steaks. You’ll find us doing it nearly every weekend at the Verdict Bar & Grill. Any time you’re in, feel free to ask what I’m playing with that night - or try this one at home. You’ll find a world of flavors can be opened up when trying new things with your favorite ingredients.

black-n-blue strip steak with fire roasted shrimp by Chef Rob Campbell executive chef at Verdict Bar & Grill

ingredients for 1 serving: 14 oz new york strip steak

1 tsp. cajun spice

4 - 6 jumbo prawns peeled & deveined (prefer size 16/20)

¼ cup tomato diced & seeded

1 cup heavy cream

1/8 cup green onions chopped heaping tbsp. blue cheese crumbles

½ tbsp. butter

directions: Shrimp: BBQ or charbroil shrimp. Cook until shrimp are pink. Steak: Grill or broil NY strip steak to your liking. Sauce: Reduce 1 cup of heavy cream by half or until cream thickens. Season with Cajun spice to taste I prefer a good amount of kick to mine. Finish sauce with 1/2 tablespoon butter, add shrimp, tomatoes, green onions and simmer briefly to infuse flavor. Finish by placing shrimp over your steak and drizzling the sauce and crumbled blue cheese over steak & enjoy. This topping may also be used with your favorite cut of meat or any roast. z
