Being part of a Metro area, there can be a tendency to consider all of Portland as a resource to meet our needs.

What I’ve realized is that some of the most amazing resources and treasures can be discovered right here in our own backyard— Oregon City. Certainly I want to share reasons for people to visit Oregon City, but of equal or greater importance is helping build pride within our community.

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.

a message from the mayor Welcome to Oregon City, a place where people and possibilities unite! Our community has changed impressively during the past few years. Oregon City now projects a more positive image, upgraded facilities, new businesses and gathering places, an enhanced waterfront and a revitalizing Main Street. Why? Because community leaders, citizens, service providers, and the business community worked together to make it happen. Things Truly Look Different Here! This old state tourism slogan reflects our achievements and also our uniqueness. We are proud of both.

keeping it local

oregon city is charm-ing by Julie Paulsen

Oregon City is Charming. The words began as a slogan for a charm bracelet program. By the time summer 2009 was over, those words had taken on more meaning than anyone could have foreseen. The charms for the bracelets were indeed “Charming”. However, it was the people who made the words come to life: girlfriends collecting together, husbands for wives, fathers for daughters, and grandmothers for granddaughters. The people of Oregon City were charming. The looks of delight when they saw the charms, the shyness of children handing over a rumpled dollar, the surprise in their voices when they talked about a new business they had discovered in town. The first 200 bracelets and charms sold out more rapidly than anyone could have anticipated. More were ordered, waiting lists were started, and a special charm was sold the day of the Antique Fair. The program 6

SPRING/SUMMER

exceeded expectations as more and more people, both visitors and residents, discovered just how Charming Oregon City really is. This program provides an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to explore local businesses you may or may not have visited previously. We encourage charm collectors to take at least a few minutes to look around, read a menu, make a purchase. “My friends and I made a fun social outing of it and broke it into sections that we could walk. My kids had to sample something at every stop. We literally ate our way down the entire length of Main Street,” said Laurie Pearson, a resident of Oregon City.

This year Oregon City will be “Charming” once again, with over 20 charms available. Some of the businesses will be the same as last year, but will be featuring a new charm. There are also new businesses that will be participating. In addition, charms will be available earlier this year. The charms and bracelets will go on sale in early May and will be sold until late October or while supplies last. Each charm costs $1.00. However, there will be one special cast silver charm honoring our Municipal Elevator that will be sold for $3.00. A complete list of businesses and images of the charms for sale are available in a brochure at each location, as well as online at www.oregoncity.org.

This year, bracelets can be purchased for $5.00 at the following locations: the office of the Oregon City Chamber (1201 Washington Street); Friends of the Oregon City Library Used Bookstore (502 7th Street); and My Mother Knows (1105 Linn Avenue).

get your landscape in shape by Julie Paulsen

Spring & Summer are treasured here in Oregon City by those of us who enjoy our outdoor living spaces. I have assembled some tips & trends from local experts that will help you get the most out of your outdoor living space whether you have a home with a full yard, a townhome with limited landscaping, or an apartment with a patio or porch. A little work can yield great results & create a wonderful outdoor area for you to enjoy all summer & into the fall. Remember to ask our local experts for advice & purchase your supplies right here in Oregon City. Everything you need is right here in your own “backyard.”

A Healthy Lawn - - -

thatching and aerating • This is the first step in attaining a healthy lawn. Thatching clears out the unwanted dead grass and moss to give space for healthy grass. Aerating to a 3 inch depth allows water, air, and nutrients to the roots and helps the grass grow thicker and healthier. You can find these items at your local hardware store.

LIME • An application of lime helps keep the pH balance in favorable conditions for the lawn. It is best to apply lime in December but go ahead and apply in early spring 8

SPRING/SUMMER

if you haven’t done so already. Then apply a spring-time fertilizer for an added boost, that doesn’t exceed 25% in nitrogen. WEEDS • Tough weeds require individual attention and specific chemical applications. Some need to be applied to leaves for absorption and others to roots. Make sure you identify which application is best for the weed you want to eliminate. Nonchemical treatments that are effective are hard to find. The best defense against weeds is to establish and maintain a healthy lawn.

PRUNING • As for pruning, trees are easier to prune when the leaves are off and you can see where the branches are overlapping. However, feel free to trim when necessary. Flowering bushes should be pruned only after they are done flowering. Know your plant and check a reference book or online to find out where to prune as individual plants have specific needs. Information provided by Kris Buel of Oregon City Landscaping.


tips&trends Fire-Safe Landscaping - - -

When assessing your landscaping, take actions to reduce the risk of property loss due to wildfires. Canemah Bluffs, Newell Creek Canyon and Waterboard Park have been specifically identified as local areas at risk. Everyone should be aware of ways to reduce the spread of fire through their landscaping.

3 Rs FOR A FIRE-SAFE LANDSCAPE - - REDUCE REMOVE Reduce the chances for fire to spread for 100 feet around structures. For example: - Prune low hanging and dead limbs - Mow grass and keep weeds from growing near structures

Remove flammable materials from within 30 feet of structures, such as: - Dead plants - Wood piles - Highly flammable plants (i.e. arborvitae, eucalyptus, pampas grasses)

Information provided by Tim DeLano of Hopkins Demonstration Forest.

FIRE RESISTANT PLANTS

Vegetable GardeninG - - -

There are some simple tips that can help you get the most enjoyment out of your vegetable garden. First and foremost, don’t be afraid. Vegetable gardening is about trial and error. If a vegetable doesn’t grow in one spot, plant it somewhere else next time. Plant a variety of things. Vegetables always taste better when you grow them yourself. In May, the best vegetables to plant are beans, corn, potatoes, carrots, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. They will thrive during the warmer summer months. Tomatoes and peppers should not be planted together. Tomatoes, like most vegetables, prefer sweet soil whereas peppers prefer acidic soil. Condition the soil with lime to create sweetness. Corn also grows better with extra nitrogen in the soil. It is also good to alternate the location where you plant tomatoes and potatoes every year. Potatoes clean the soil creating a good growth environment for tomatoes the following year. Tomatoes prefer a deep watering once a week. Fertilize them in the beginning and one time when the bush is developing, but don’t fertilize after the bush develops because the fertilizer encourages the plant to get bushier and reduces the tomato yield. To plan ahead, “cole” crops should be planted in the fall and early spring. They are often misunderstood as “cold” crops but that mistake does help you remember when these vegetables thrive. Lettuce, celery, beets, carrots, peas, onions, broccoli, cabbages, and spinach prefer cooler growing times. No matter the season, remember to plant flowers among the vegetables in your garden. The bright colors of the flowers will attract bees which then pollinate your vegetables and increase the yield. Finally, all gardens are prone to pests whether insect, bird, or animal. There are some organic options for insects, but pesticides for gardens are contact killers not residual and do not penetrate the plants. The best prevention is a row cover, a mesh fabric that allows rain and sun to penetrate but stops pests of all varieties. Information provided by Carol Buche of Wilco Farm Store.

tips&trends Power EquipmenT - - -

Lawn mowers, aerators, and rototillers are the primary power tools needed for yard maintenance. Aerators and rototillers are typically only used once per year so evaluate cost benefits of owning and maintaining versus renting. Lawn mowers should be “freshened” in spring before first use. Changing the oil and sharpening the blades are very important. If your mower has been properly serviced for winter storage it should start readily once you put in new fuel. Gas goes stale in roughly 30 days, so if you do not use your mower in that time frame, you should drain the old gas and put in new. It is best to allow this equipment to cool before storing it until the next use. To preserve your equipment investment and keep repair costs down, be certain you winterize your machinery. This is important and inexpensive, yet 99 percent of owners do not winterize properly.

CLACKAMAS FIRE DISTRICT #1 Finally, to finish freshening up outdoors, rent a pressure washer and wash the sides of your house, sidewalk and other pavement to clear away moss and debris. z Information provided by Rob Clark of Clark’s Lawn & Garden.

spice up your landscape by Dr. Joanne Gordon

Planting herbs in your landscape is a great way to enjoy the freshness and flavor of home-grown spices right in your own back (or front) yard. Incorporating some basic spices into your garden will ensure a constant supply of basic cooking herbs like sage, rosemary, thyme and lavender. It’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor outdoors and in the kitchen.

Sage - - - - - - -

Sage is a popular decorative garden plant and works well as a border shrub. The purple variety, Salvia officinalis, is used in medicine and is more effective than its green counterpart. Sage contains essential oils, notably thujone, which gives sage its distinct aroma. Sage has a calming effect on the body. It can ease muscle cramping, help with menopausal symptoms and relieve sweating. More recent studies have shown Sage to be helpful with memory in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Rosemary is an evergreen shrub that grows in many parts of the world and has been used medicinally for centuries. Rosemary was one of Shakespeare’s herbs of remembrance and rightly so since Rosemary contains more than 12 memory-genic compounds. Rosemary has many other uses too. When used internally, Rosemary will help with digestion, rid parasites and is an excellent antioxidant. The essential oil can be used topically to ease arthritic pain. When inhaled, the oil is regarded as an uplifting and energizing stimulant. I have had a Rosemary shrub outside my office for many years.

Thyme derives its name from the Greek word for courage (knights would wear Thyme on their tunics). In France, they used thyme as a symbol for the republican spirit, but the Romans understood its medicinal value and used it for coughs, a digestive aid and intestinal parasites. Thyme is also a great anti-septic and it is one of the main ingredients used in many mouthwashes, including Listerine. Thyme is used in all types of dishes and complements most vegetables.

Lavender is a beautiful, aromatic, hardy plant that will tolerate many growing conditions. Lavender is a member of the mint family and is a close relative to rosemary, sage, and thyme and is often used in combination with these herbs. Lavender is often substituted for rosemary in many bread recipes. The flowers add beautiful color to salads. When cooking with lavender it will add an exotic sweet floral flavor to your dish. For medicinal purposes, Lavender flowers can be made into a tea to help relieve tension headaches, muscle cramps, colic and indigestion. Lavender helps decrease anxiety and irritability. Lavender’s oil has significant anti-septic and antibacterial actions and may be applied undiluted to insect bites and stings. The diluted oil can be applied to sunburns, over achy muscles and joints and cold sores. Lavender is also considered to be an uplifting herb that can help with depression. z Before using any herbs for medicinal purposes, please contact your physician.

container gardening by Sarah Smith

One doesn’t need a lot of space to get in on the “grow your own” craze; if you have room for a few potted flowers on the porch or patio, then you have room for vegetables. Most any garden container can hold vegetable plants, however bigger is better, to allow room for the fast growing plants.

A repurposed galvanized water trough would fit either with a farm house or a home with sleek modern styling. Choose containers that allow for good

The Ladies Man July 8-25 Presented by Clackamas Repertory Theatre The Osterman Theatre in the Niemeyer Center, Clackamas Community College

In Belle Époque Paris, the recently married Dr. Hercule Molineaux tells “one, tiny, little, hardly noticeable lie” to cover an innocent but embarrassing indiscretion. From that single untruth tumbles a cascade of increasingly convoluted deceptions, misunderstandings and mistaken identities, all adding up to a hilariously zany and infectiously charming farce.

First City Celebration Saturday, July 31, 11:00 am Downtown Oregon City

Focused on building community pride, the event focuses on three of Oregon City’s strengths: an art market that celebrates the creative spirit of Oregon City, kid friendly crafts and activities that celebrate our youth and families, and wine tasting that celebrates Oregon City’s role as a gateway to local viniculture.

One of the most beloved musicals of all times, Fiddler On The Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. Its universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

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.

hidden treasures find these secret hot spots by Julie Paulsen

Every town has hidden treasures: artwork only a few people see regularly, walking paths only a few people travel, remnants of history only a few people know about. 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. Some of these treasures are truly hidden while others are there in plain sight if we only take the time to look. This column will provide an opportunity for all of us to learn more about the city in which we live and work. I invite all of you to share your hidden treasures. Send me a location, description, and a photo if possible (jpaulsen@oregoncity.org). I will share these treasures in upcoming issues.

Main Campus of Clackamas Community College The campus of our local community college may be one of the largest “hidden treasures.� The spacious campus provides many opportunities for exploration and discovery. There are Community Gardens, a home composting demonstration site, athletic fields, a jogging trail, and the Niemeyer Center. In addition, the cultural arts are an integral part of the campus.

Historic Tiles at Liberty Plaza & up 7th Street Scattered through Liberty Plaza and up both sides of 7th Street from Center to Harrison Street, there are historic tiles or “markers� that illustrate a snippet of Oregon City history. From an image of the Oregon City Locks in 1875 to the Odd Fellows Hall in 1922, these tiles provide a glimpse of what existed at particular locations in the past. Park at the top of the elevator, take a stroll up one side of 7th Street and down the opposite, go down the Grand Staircase to historic Downtown Main Street, and to Liberty Plaza located by the County Courthouse. Then, ride the elevator back up to your car. There is a brochure that provides detail about some of the tiles on Seventh Street. The brochures are available at the Oregon City Chamber office.

Waterboard Park This park runs up the bluff from the SW end of John Adams Street, near the armory, to the overlook at Creed Street. In between is a beautiful natural area with walking paths that brings a bit of wilderness into the middle of our city. The main path is paved but quite steep. It has also experienced landslides that resulted in some broken sections and drop-offs. The trails that lead off the main path do not necessarily loop around or lead to a destination but are a nice walk that can include some very uneven terrain. From the top at the overlook, there is an incredible view of Oregon City. On clear days, you can also see downtown Portland and several mountains including Mt. St. Helens.

Glimpse of Old Jail Windows off Main Street If you walk down the alley next to the McCald Building, 712 Main Street, and look up at the windows on the second floor you can see where bars have been cut out of three of the windows. In 1925, City Hall moved into that building with police headquarters on the lower floor and city offices on the second floor. The second floor also included the municipal courtroom and jail cells for men and women. The site of the building was the original location of the Oregon City Hose House #1 which faced Main Street with the 3rd City Jail behind it facing the alley. The jail in City Hall was the 4th jail. The first one was on the river bank near 3rd Street, and was burned down within a few years of its construction. The second was between 7th and 8th Streets, facing Railroad Avenue. z

citizen involvement As an involved citizen you know what is going on in the community in which you live, work and/or play. When you are involved you see yourself as a stakeholder and can have a role in the decision-making process. There are so many ways to get involved whether its through our neighborhood associations, city committees, Meals on Wheels, schools, and much more. At the city, county and special district levels, there are numerous committees and task forces that seek your involvement: budgeting, parks and recreation, historic review are a few examples. The City of Oregon City website will open your eyes to many options – www.orcity.org. • Get involved in your local neighborhood association! Click on About Oregon City and then Neighborhoods.

carnegie center by Amber Holveck

Oregon City’s Carnegie Center, located in the center of the historic McLoughlin District, is a model of architectural significance. Built in 1912 as a public library, it was funded in part by a grant from famous philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. From 1912 to 1994 the Carnegie Center was the location for Oregon City’s Public Library, until the library outgrew the facility. Subsequently it was reopened as a multiple use community center. The Carnegie Center has been vacant now since August 2008, but the Oregon City Commission hopes to determine a purpose for the Center the entire community can enjoy. Late in 2009 the Commission convened a Citizen Task Force to recommend new uses for the Carnegie Center. The task force is comprised of residents and businesspeople alike. A key component of this effort is public input. Carol Pauli, a member of the task force, shared that the citizen participation and response at an open house held in February exceeded expectations. “Based on feedback, it’s clear that many people have fond memories of going to Carnegie when it was a library. We are dedicated to ensuring that the future use of Carnegie will remain true to its original intent and fill a gap in Oregon City,” stated Pauli, who is owner/operator of KC’s Midway Bar & Grill and a city resident. After reviewing public input the task force will make a collective recommendation to our City Commission as to how the Carnegie Center should be utilized. Many residents wanted to see Carnegie as a branch library, however our community is not large enough to warrant this. Likely, the Carnegie Center will remain our community’s “living room” and house a multi-use arts and culture center. Beginning this summer, Carnegie Center will temporarily house a smaller version of the Oregon City Public Library until its permanent location, likely Eastham School, is ready. z 30

inspiration . . . . . . This dish was inspired by meals my mother used to create for my family when I was a child. I was always amazed by the aromas and flavors she was able to capture by just throwing together what appeared to me to be random ingredients. One of my favorites was always her sautéed chicken with artichokes. Over time I refined my recollection of her creation with my own cooking methods and ingredients to create a signature dish for myself that was much more than just a plate of food but a tribute to my mom and the aromas and flavors I grew up with. © Paradise Photography

weatherford’s tuscan chicken by Chef Mathew Castellani

executive chef at weatherford’s grand lodge

ingredients: 4 chicken breasts (6 oz each)

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 fresh artichoke hearts

2 tbsp butter

3 whole tomatoes medium diced

1 cup flour

1 zucchini and 1 squash medium dice

2 tbsp fresh or dried parsley

a hand full of fresh spinach

8 garlic cloves

1/4 cup white wine

salt and white pepper

3 cups chicken stock

directions: Preheat oven to 400° F. Wash and dry all of the vegetables. Using one square foot of foil, place garlic cloves in the middle with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Fold in the sides of the foil to seal in the garlic. Place in oven for 7 min or until just golden brown. Wash and clean chicken breasts under cool running water. Trim the fat of each breast. Dry chicken breasts with paper towels and place on a clean cutting board. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and pound it with the tenderizer side of a kitchen mallet. Place a large skillet on the stove with some olive oil and butter. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, dredge it in the flour, and place in heated skillet. Sauté the chicken until golden brown on each side. Once the chicken is golden brown add all the vegetables except the spinach. Deglaze the pan with some white wine and chicken stock. Add the roasted garlic cloves (the garlic can be pureed to get a more even flavor and help thicken the sauce, or it can be left whole). Reduce the sauce until gravy-like, add spinach, cook just until the spinach is wilted; adjust seasoning and serve. z 38
