Omak firefighters prepare to attach a winch to Lew L. Naddy’s vehicle to pull off a power pole the vehicle struck after skidding on black ice Saturday morning on the Conconully Highway.
Winter weather strikes Icy roads lead to minor crashes By Al Camp The Chronicle OKANOGAN – Icy roads caused a bevy of crashes last weekend, with two power poles clipped off by vehicles near here. “We’ve had 13 different accidents the last four days,” Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said Monday. “Most were not serious. We had mostly fender bender stuff.” In one crash, Lew L. Naddy, 90, of Okanogan, hit a power pole along the Conconully Highway. He was southbound at 11:05 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, when he lost control of his 1995 Mercedes 380 coupe on ice, a deputy said. Naddy’s vehicle slid off the highway sideways and struck a power pole at the driveway of Mike Sheldon. Naddy, who was uninjured, was unable to get out of his vehicle because the pole landed between his hood and
windshield, pinching shut both doors, a deputy said. Okanogan County Public Utility District turned off power, allowing Omak fire crews to winch the pole down the hood. Naddy was given a courtesy ride home, Rogers said. The road was closed for several hours. Electricity and phone service were off for several more hours. In an unrelated crash, Gail E. Peck, 51, of Seattle, was injured Dec. 7 when her vehicle slid off U.S. Highway 97 three miles north of Riverside. Peck was northbound around 7:05 p.m. when she lost control on black ice. The vehicle went off the road right side, overturned and came to rest off the highway on its side, a State Patrol crash memo said. Peck was transported by ambulance to Mid-Valley Hospital in Omak. Passengers Donald E. Peck, 78, of Tonasket, and Edward C. Beaston-Peck, 24, of Burien, were not injured. All were wearing seat belts, the Washington State Patrol

reported. The cause of the crash is under investigation, authorities said. Alcohol was not involved. The driver was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions, a report said. And in a third unrelated crash, another power pole was taken out Friday, Dec. 7, south of Malott on Old Highway 97 near the Monse turnoff. A pickup truck driven by Audel Monje-Lopez, 21, of Okanogan, slid off the road
around 3:40 p.m., Rogers said. The vehicle overturned and struck a pole, he said. “He was banged up,” Rogers said, although there was no report of the crash victim being transported to a hospital. Frank suggested drivers slow down for winter conditions. “Slow down, that’s the key,” he said. “Just be aware, black ice is a killer. People just have to slow down.”
Santa Claus tour under way Erb family leads effort for Colville reservation The Chronicle OMAK – Santa Claus’ annual tour through the central part of the Okanogan Valley started Sunday night, but area children still have several opportunities to see his sleigh. The Omak and Okanogan chambers of commerce have combined efforts to bring Santa to their two cities. And the Erb family and several volunteers are making sure Santa visits Malott, East Omak, the housing developments on OmakRiverside Eastside Road, Disautel, Paschal Sherman Indian School and Nespelem. “We’ve been doing it for 17 years,” Mildred Erb said of the sleigh her family has been bringing to Colville Indian children throughout the region. “When you see kids come outside with no shoes and no coats on to see Santa, it makes you feel good.” The Erbs’ Santa tour got under way Sunday in Malott and hit East Omak on Monday

At 6 p.m. each day, the tour was expected to visit the housing developments Tuesday, and Disautel and Paschal Sherman on Wednesday, Erb said. If the weather and roads are good, the Erbs hope to get Santa to Nespelem on Dec. 20. “This year, we’ve gotten a lot of donations,” Erb said, noting the Colville tribe has covered
about half of the cost of this year’s Christmas run. “It was a lot more expensive this year.” Erb said she and her husband, Bob Erb, couldn’t get as far as they do without a number of volunteers. Those volunteers include Lynn Holder, Jody Cook, Shawn and Duane Belgarde, Jim and Marcy Ronyak, Lori Marchand, Dreamer Best and others.
“I’d really like to thank them,” she said, noting their assistance was needed more than ever this year. Erb was burned last spring trying to put out a fire at her home, she said, noting she spent about a month in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. To this day, she’s still recovering, she said, noting she normally would have had a fundraiser to support her family’s Christmas effort. “I wish I could’ve done more,” she said. “But we’ve got the candy now and we’re on the go.” Meanwhile, the chamber sleigh was expected in North Omak on Tuesday and the central-southern part of Omak on Wednesday. Thursday, the jolly ol’ elf is scheduled to make his way around Okanogan. While the chamber sleigh brings Santa Claus to children, it will also serve as a collection point for residents wishing to donate to area non-perishable items to area food banks. Just bring your nonperishable items to the volunteers assisting Santa – they will make sure items get to

NESPELEM – Determined to have their message heard, Colville tribal elders presented more than 2,600 signatures on a petition asking their Business Council for the remaining 50 percent of a historic $193 million settlement. “It belongs to us – bottom line,” Yvonne Swan, 69 of Inchelium, said of the agreement signed by the U.S. Department of Justice for one of the largest American Indian trust management settlements in U.S. history. “It’s restitution for past damages done to our resources, and we’re the ones who suffered. “The council thinks we should be satisfied and allow them to spend the money. And a lot of what they talk about spending it on … we don’t trust that.” With Chairman John Sirois and Vice Chairman Michael O. Finley out of the office when the petition arrived, Councilwoman Nancy Lynn PalmanteerHolder accepted the

From Washington, D.C., Sirois voiced his support on behalf of the council Monday for the current design for spending called, “The Qwam Qwmpt’ Plan,” a resolution adopted unanimously on Oct. 5. The plan allocates the remaining money for activities and projects within seven core areas of importance to the tribe, including forest restoration, land purchase, sustainable growth and development,

Several want to succeed retiring Morton Kretz, Short will not pursue seat By Dannie Oliveaux The Chronicle REPUBLIC – Several candidates are interested in filling a Senate vacancy next month when Bob Morton retires Jan. 1 from his 7th District seat. The list includes a Ferry County commissioner, a former Colville Chamber of Commerce president, a Seattle-area attorney and a former legislative aid Dansel from Spokane. Republic Party precinct committee officers will meet Dec. 15 to select three candidates to bring forward for commissioners from Ferry, Okanogan, Pend Oreille, Stevens and Spokane counties to vote on. Ferry County Commissioner Brian Dansel said he’s ready to go through the process and see what happens. “It will be a tall task for anyone to fill Bob’s shoes,” Dansel said. “He was one of the most popular legislators in Olympia.” Dansel said he considered running after he received several phone calls. “I want to see a continuance of those policies Bob was heading,” Dansel said. “Right now, we need folks who want to work on property rights and

He previously worked as a House page for retired 7th District Sen. Bob Sump. The Republican Party of Okanogan County presented a list of three candidates – John Smith, Hunter M. Abell and Josh Kern. Sue Lani Madsen, a former candidate for the 7th District state House seat, also announced her endorsement of John Smith, the Colville Farmers Market manager and former Colville Chamber of Commerce president. Abell, a 1998 Inchelium High School graduate, works full-time as an attorney with Williams Kaster and Gibbs in Bothell. He graduated from Gonzaga University in 2005 and served in the Navy from 2006 to 2010. While in the Navy, he was a Judge Advocate General’s attorney.

About a month ago, this column mentioned the invention of eyeglasses, wondering if Benjamin Franklin had something to do with their invention. Then came a nice letter from Muriel Douglas of Ellensburg, referring to several books written in Italy (and in Italian) indicating the earliest stirrings known in this field date to the 1300s. There was a well-developed glass industry in Italy in the 1300s, and the distinction between glass and crystal was already established. There was writing on the subject, including warnings against misrepresentation as to the quality of so-called spectacles for the eyes. After questioning some dates, she acknowledges the actual inventor of glasses (for medical purposes) is unknown. An early book in Italian, translated into English under the title “Books, Banks, Buttons, and other inventions from the Middle Ages,” was published in 2003 and later was in its third printing by Columbia University Press.

Graffiti reported in Brewster and Bridgeport areas
Coat Drive for People In Need
By Dee Camp The Chronicle BREWSTER – City police and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputies found themselves scurrying from one spot to another last week, trying to catch up with vandals who spray-painted buildings, fences, garbage bins and anything else that wouldn’t move. Sometimes they’d arrive while the paint was still wet. The vandals “were pretty prolific,” Brewster Police Chief Ron Oules said. His department received eight malicious mischief/ graffiti complaints Nov. 30, two Dec. 1, eight Dec. 2 and one each Dec. 3-6. “It was definitely a concentrated and planned effort,” he said. Police suspect the taggers had monitors watching officers’ movements since an officer would go from one part of town to another, then return to the original area to find fresh graffiti. Some messages were painted on top of others. “No doubt they have a process to monitor where officers are,” Oules said. In Brewster, the vandals tagged signs, walls, fences, trash bins and a railroad bridge. “It seemed like they’d drive around, get out and tag something and get back in the car,” he said. “In one case, the officer got there within 30 seconds of being dispatched, but they were gone.” Bridgeport also saw a rash of graffiti, but the seven calls were concentrated on the night of Nov. 30, Douglas County Undersheriff Don Culp said. Walls were targeted there. That city gets its share of graffiti, but that much at one time was unusual, Culp said. In both towns, police suspect gangs. The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office did not receive rural malicious mischief reports during the same time period. Oules and Culp said people should keep a lookout for tagging activity and report it immediately via 911. “We need to be called immediately, not later,” Oules said. “The (damage) cost is substantial and it adds up quickly.” “Call right away,” Culp said. Oules said his office has a few leads and some security video available. No arrests have been made in either city.
Utility rates, fees increase in 2013 OKANOGAN – City utility rates and several other fees will rise in 2013. The City Council, during its Dec. 4 meeting, adopted a fee schedule for the year. Water and sewer rates will rise by an average of $100 per customer per year, or about $8 per month. Rates for use of The Plex also rose, as did some other fees, including some for dog licenses. The council previously approved a 1.7 percent sanitation fee increase. The one-can residential rate will go from $15.48 per month to $15.75. In other business, the council agreed to pursue purchase of surplus state property adjacent to the Okanogan Legion Airport.

Higbee resigns from board The Chronicle BREWSTER – Applicants are sought for the Three Rivers Hospital Board position being vacated by Larry Higbee, who resigned. Applicants must be registered voters in the district, which encompasses the Brewster-Pateros area, Methow Valley and northern Douglas County. The new board member would serve until 2014, when the six-year position is up for election. As an emergency medical technician, Higbee said he liked taking patients to the Brewster hospital because he always learned from the hospital staff. He visited with then-Chief Executive Officer Howard Gamble to express his interest in being on the board. Higbee was appointed to the board in 2001, when Marjorie Ayers resigned. He said he learned “so
much” as a board member. “I really enjoyed working with staff and other board members to make the hospital better,” he said. The most significant changes have been during the last year with the hiring of Bud Hufnagel as chief executive officer. “He has taken great strides to pulling the hospital into the black and going forward into the future in a positive way,” Higbee said. “He also has boosted morale among staff members, which I think is very important.” Higbee and his wife of 50 years, Louise, moved to the Methow Valley in 1962, first living in Mazama and then moving to Winthrop in 1973. They have two sons and six grandchildren. He worked as a building contractor, cabinet maker and EMT. Higbee said he plans to
retire, work on old cars and do woodworking. He will also continue being an Okanogan County deputy coroner, a job he has done for the last 15 years. “Your time here is very well appreciated, and we can’t thank you enough for your dedication to this board,” board Chairman Dan Webster said. A reception for Higbee and former board member Bill Bayless is planned after the Dec. 17 board meeting, which is at noon in the Hillcrest House Administration Building commons area, 415 Hospital Way. Board applicants can mail letters of interest to Rebecca Meadows, P.O. Box 577, Brewster 98812, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop them off at the Hillcrest House Administration Building. The deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 15. Candidates will be interviewed Jan. 28.
Board looks at slimmer budget By Dannie Oliveaux The Chronicle OKANOGAN – Okanogan County Public Utility District commissioners want to keep wage increases for non-union workers after reviewing a revised proposed budget. On Dec. 4, commissioners were presented the proposed $64.2 budget for 2013, compiled with input from a previous meeting. The refined budget is $7.2 million less than the original proposed $71.4 budget that called for taking $22.2 million from reserves. Under the revised budget, the district would need $14.5 million from reserves to balance. Director of Finance/Auditor Don Coppock said staff made additional changes based on input from commissioners at the Nov. 27 meeting. The revised budget includes a net effect of 0 percent in nonunion wage adjustments, along with an across-the-board pay freeze or unpaid furlough, or combination of the two. Coppock said without the non-union wage adjustments, the district would spend $111,700. The original overall 3 percent average increase included bargaining agreement step increase for union workers. But commissioners want to keep the wage increase. “I think we would leave it alone,” board President Patricia “Trish” Butler said, with Commissioner Dave Womack in agreement. “Let’s put it back in at this point,” Womack said. Coppock said adding the wage increase with benefits, the additional cost would be closer to $150,000.
Commissioner Ernest Bolz said other public utility districts are having employees pick up more of the health care insurance cost. Coppock said the district, over the past several years, has had employees pay more of the cost. The utility is a member of the North Central Public Utility District Insurance Trust and part of the bargaining contract is moving from a 95/5 split to 90/10 split. Butler said she would like to see higher wages and the district get away from providing such a large share of the health care cost. Utility General Manager John Grubich said health care cost is part of the union’s bargaining process. Adjustments in the revised budget included: • Revamped estimates of revenue and expenditures. • Delayed construction of Pateros-to-Twisp transmission
line ($3 million in 2013 and the $6.4 million balance in 2014). • Removing an internal system technician position. • $1 million in transfers from the Rate Stabilization Fund. • A $7.7 million decrease in the reliance on reserve funds and the district would have an estimated $1.1 million available for operating work capital. “There could be a $1 million swing from one month to the next,” Coppock said. Bolz asked the cost of using the district’s line of credit. Figures show a $455,000 increase in proposed total revenue, but $6.3 million decrease in capital outlay and $974,000 decrease in expenditures. Expenditure decreases include $379,000 in miscellaneous contractual services. A revised budget was scheduled for presentation during a Dec. 11 special meeting.

Peone out as wildlife director NESPELEM – Joe Peone is out as director of Colville Tribal Fish and Wildlife, officials confirmed Monday. Randall Friedlander will act as interim director, officials said. Peone had been the spokesman of the Chief Joseph Hatchery in Bridgeport, a $49 million project that was said to produce more than 1.9 million spring and summer Chinook salmon each year. The tribe began designing the hatchery in early 2001, and is expected to open it in 2013. — The Chronicle

Opinion • The Chronicle • Dec. 12, 2012
Senate coalition means changes For the last several years, it’s been business as usual in the Legislature. The Democratic Party leadership has gone to Olympia and put social issues ahead of state budgets. Last year, the Legislature was forced into an overtime session just to deal with the state budget, due in part to wasting the first part of the regular session on a social matter ultimately decided by voters. But this year, change is afoot. Two of the Democrats in the Road Kill Caucus have joined with Republicans to form the new Majority Coaliton Caucus in the state Senate. Sens. Rodney Tom, D-Bellevue, and Tim Sheldon, D-Potlatch, were among the three who last year broke the budget stalement and helped get a budget passed. The third senator in that coalition last year, Democrat Jim Kastama of Puyallup, did not seek re-election to the Senate because he ran for secretary of state. Regardless, the coalition between Tom, Sheldon and Republicans mean a new approach to governing the state. Together, the new caucus is focusing on promoting job growth, creating a sustainable budget and living within the state’s means. The coalition promises to enhance education and reform government while holding elected and appointed officials accountable. The new coalition eliminates the stranglehold the Democratic Party has had on state politics in the Senate. When the Legislative session convenes next month on Jan. 14, there will be 15 Senate committees with equal chairmanship from both parties. The idea is to develop a middle-of-the-road approach to managing tax revenues and spending in a bipartisan manner. Hopefully, the coalition will be successful in making Washington state a financially sound, better governed place to live and work. The change in leadership and governing is clearly welcomed.
Big changes a surprise for Colvilles Such big change in a small amount of time doesn’t come around often for the Colville tribal headquarters in Nespelem. Now that five of the most visible positions have changed hands in 2012, tribal members don’t know what to expect. Let’s take a look at the new regime: In June, John Sirois, a newcomer to the Business Council, became the tribe’s chairman by a vote among the 14member body, ending Michael Finley’s Cary three-year Rosenbaum run. In October, Matt Haney stepped down as police chief and into the Public Safety Department after almost a decade. Cory Orr then took over on an interim basis. In that same month, the tribe replaced former Chief Judge Trudi Flamand with Cynthia Jordan. Also in October, Francis Somday took over an executive director position held in interim by Patrick Tonasket. And December spelled the end of the Joe Peone era at the tribal Department of Fish and Wildlife. Randall Friedlander will assume director duties on an interim basis, officials said. What a turnover. For some of us, the Mayan calendar grabbed our attention. For others, the demise of the Twinkie was a close runner-up. But this may be even more unexpected, depending on who you ask. It will be interesting to see how this new era of leadership will mesh. But first, our new leaders all have to get up to speed in a system where the wheels only stop turning for a fry bread dinner, a funeral, or both. Sirois inherits the brunt of the weight as the top dog – the $193 million settlement, battling in court with resource giant Teck Cominco, and what to do with the influx of wolves. Orr took over a police department in October that began with an officer crashing into a cow during a pursuit near Disautel. That will be a tough one to shake off. Jordan will have her hands full in a busy, busy tribal court system. Somday becomes the next gladiator in the council’s arena as executive director – the seventh in the past five years, by my count. It will be his second stint in the position, which is responsible for overseeing the web of tribal departments. And Friedlander takes a dip in the water by becoming the voice of the Chief Joseph Hatchery, after leading the wildlife division under Peone. Normally, shake-ups to a starting five are seen as a sign that a team is in a rebuilding phase. Knowing tribal members, they probably welcome that rather than the status quo.

‘Sour grapes’ taking center stage It’s not every day I’d go head to head with a former Washington Redskins linebacker. But sometimes, you just have to set the record straight, even when it means lining up across from a man who knows how to tackle the issues. Enough of the football inuendo — I’m talking about recent statements made by ousted Okanogan County Commissioner Don R. “Bud” Hover, a former NFL defensive player and a Methow Valley rancher. Last week, I was contacted by a Web-based reporter working on a reaction story to Bud’s 10-vote loss. She wanted me to respond to some of the statements our District No. 2 county commissioner was making in regard to losing the Nov. 6 general election to newcomer Ray L. Campbell. According to the reporter, Bud was blaming his loss on me, The Chronicle and the Okanogan County Farm Bureau. In regard to our publication, Bud claimed our reporting during the election was biased. To that, I replied: “It sounds like sour grapes to me.”
on the hot Seat Roger Harnack Bud correctly pointed out that we indeed endorsed his opponent — the endorsement was published Oct. 31, late in the election process, on our opinion page. Bud claimed he didn’t receive our endorsement because I was upset over his previous votes to award the required legal notices contract to a firm managed outside of the county. He further said he voted to award the contract to a publication other than The Chronicle because it was “$30,000 to $40,000” cheaper. At the time the reporter called me, I said I wouldn’t comment specifically on the numbers because they were not accurate. Well, since that discussion, we’ve researched the current numbers. Looking at the current county fiscal year for the last five months, the county has spend just over
$6,223 on its legal publication services with us. Extrapolating the figures out over the rest of the year, the county will spend a total of about $14,000 publishing mandated legal notices in The Chronicle. (Of course, that could change if county agencies step up construction projects and rule-making activities.) Regardless, it’s very clear Bud’s figures were far left of the goal post. I saw far left because Hover also accused the Farm Bureau membership of moving too far to the right and stripping him of an opportunity to effectively lead the county. Isn’t that interesting? Okanogan County, while known as solidly conservative, isn’t as far right as Bud would have you believe. You don’t have to look any further than the majority of Ron Paul supporters in the past presidential election process to see that the county has very libertarian ideas — fiscal conservancy mixed with strong support for individual rights. Bud may be correct that the Farm Bureau membership is a bit
more conservative than many area residents. But he’s missing the real point here — a majority of voters wanted a change in leadership. Bud wasn’t the only incumbent swept from office Nov. 6 in Okanogan County. In fact, nearly all of the incumbent candidates were swept away by Okanogan County voters. Although Bud was just one of several brushed aside, his race was much, much closer than others. Bud has done a good job over the years tackling issues on behalf of Okanogan County voters. But the electorate — by a very slight majority — believe its time for a change. Thanks, Bud, for giving us and the Farm Bureau the credit for the election outcome. But I think it’s unwarranted. I think the real credit should go to voters who turned out to cast a vote for change. And it should go to Ray for seeing the change in momentum and scoring with it.

From our readers Past tax rates have been much higher
Previous writer has elitist viewpoint
Roger Harnack’s Nov. 26 column made a valid point about emulating our grandparents’ examples regarding the American dream. However, he neglected to mention that during our grandparents’ time, tax rates were much higher. Even Clinton-era rates (4 percent higher than today) and back to our grandparents’ time (the highest marginal rates reached 91 percent in 1945) allowed basic government services and essential infrastructure including highways, dams, and more to be paid for. The rates supported continuing investment to maintain and improve that infrastructure for our ever-growing population. Historically, higher tax rates also allowed those with the ability and desire to gain higher education to finance that without bankrupting their future. This greatly improved our country and our quality of life. However, in the past decade, what were meant to be temporary tax cuts during a time of two offthe-books, expensive wars and other unfunded mandates between 2001 and 2007 have exploded our debt. Meanwhile, we had the lowest tax rates in more than 50 years, which could not begin to pay for any of it. No Mr. Harnack, government is not “blackmailing us for more tax dollars.” On the contrary, we now have to pay up what we’ve all charged on our nation’s credit card. We must now discard the entirely misguided idea that we are taxed too much. We must step up to restore reasonable rates to pay our nations extremely overdue bills. Melissa Rose Malo
Years ago, I read where the upper echelons of the Russian Communist Party apparatchik referred to low-level workers as “the useful idiots.” I thought nothing could be more elitist and condescending. And then I read a letter published in the Nov. 28 edition of The Chronicle. The letter writer criticizes two winners in the election as unacceptable. She didn’t question their political views. She didn’t mention the issues. Instead, she attacks one as being a “cosmetitician” and the other as only a “high school graduate,” both thusly unqualified for public office. I am so appalled by her attitude that I find it difficult to respond without being nasty and churlish. Such an ad hominem attack is embarrassing. I happen to be a beautician. As one of my more wellconnected customers told me years ago: If you want to know what’s going on in the county and what really concerns people, skip political rallies and meetings. Go work in a beauty salon. Vicki Mills Okanogan
We are inhaling socialist cancer We know that those who have
occupied the oval office the last century — both parties — have been selling Americans into the communist hands as rapidly as possible. Our ignorance, our complacency in the face of observable catastrophe is so profound that it verges on insanity itself. It’s the “Big Lie.” The lie is so big — and so exactly opposite of the truth — that it simply does not occur to most people to examine it as a possible lie at all. Those who read this letter will just brush aside the continual nonsense blown so blindingly by the socialist friends of the present administration and facts. They cannot escape the conclusion that they are loyal workers for the Kremlin. Their very success has been to hide that success from the vast majority of the American people. But the record, or enough of it to scare the daylights out of those who study it, is there for anybody who will take the time to put together the pieces. The enemy has infiltrated our churches, schools and government. This is very evident in our national and state Parks, U.s. Forest Service and federal Bureau of Land Management, locking up our resources and destroying our nation. Do we have the courage to challenge communist/socialist
leaders and ourselves to reject this secular culture and its influence? Or will we continue to die a slow death at our own hands as we continue to inhale the cancer of secular humanism? Time is running out. W.A. Patrick Grants Pass, Ore.
Smith endorsed for state senate seat I was disappointed to hear the news that Sen. Bob Morton was retiring early, and wish him well. The precinct committee officers and the county commissioners of Okanogan, Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille and Spokane counties have a tough decision to make on behalf of the voters of the 7th Legislative District. Before I even saw a short list of candidates, I knew who I was pulling for. I am writing today to endorse John Smith of Colville for the position of state senator. John has impressed me as a strong conservative, thoughtful and articulate, and the kind of representative who will serve the 7th District well in the newly reorganized State Senate. I urge you to support John Smith to fill Sen. Bob Morton’s position. Sue Lani Madsen Edwall

The remaining 80 was earmarked to restore tribal forests, rangeland and other natural resources. Shortly thereafter, a petition was circulated, eventually resulting in a disbursement of an additional 30 percent. It was paid out Oct. 12.

TONASKET – A facility dedicated to assisted living could soon come to a close. North Valley Hospital District commissioners will hear a report from the chief financial officer on the current status and finding that could keep the assisted-living facility open. The meeting will occur Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. in the board meeting room, 126 Whitcomb, next to North Valley Hospital. Board Chairwoman Helen Casey said the district formed a committee to find out how to keep the assisted-living facility operating without losing money. The committee is seeking public input on how to sustain services in its assistant-living facility through a letter send to a local newspaper. “We’ve gone out to the community to see what can be done to keep the facility open,” Casey said. “We are going to look at this over the next 2-3 months and see what we can do. We’ll be looking at all options.” The letter stated the committee was established to evaluate the North Valley assisted-living facility, which continues to “struggle to be financially viable.” Committee members include Chief Executive Officer Linda Michel, Chief Financial Officer Helen Varhasselt, Long Term Care Senior Leader Linda Holden, PFS Senior Leader Jana Symonds, Human Resource Senior Leader Jan Gonzales and Commissioners Lael Duncan and Clarice Nelson. The letter reports the assisted-living facility has lost money for the last seven years, Last year, it lost $56,640 and $197,702 this year. Verhasselt said two reasons for the large difference is the number of patients, and whether the facility is being
state Rep. John Ahern, managed the campaign of Ahern’s replacement Representative-elect Jeff Holy. He also was an intern to U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. The district’s two state representatives said they would remain in their current positions. Rep. Shelly Short said she was going to stay in the House of Representatives. “Whenever you go from the House to the Senate, it’s like you’re starting over,” Short
said. “The positions I have in the House are crucial in working with environmental and energy issues. I just felt it was important to stay.” Short is the ranking Republican on the Environment Committee and assistant ranking Republican on the Energy Committee. Rep. Joel Kretz, RWauconda, said he will not seek Morton’s seat. Kretz, who was re-elected to a leadership position in the
Republican Caucus as deputy minority leader, said he considered seeking the seat, but “can be more effective here (House) and getting things done for the district.” Morton, R-Kettle Falls, announced his retirement Nov. 28 from the state Senate after serving for 22 years. The 78-year-old Morton was elected to the State House in 1990 and served until he was appointed to the Senate in 1994 to replace former Sen. Scott Barr.
Nattalie Cariker and others. Big R is providing the trailer for Santa’s sleigh this year. Tuesday’s tour was expected to start near Omache Shopping Center and work its way toward the Wildwood subdivision and wrap up on the north side of downtown, he said. Mayor Cindy Gagne will be helping Santa. The sleigh will not make it to the Sand Flat area, so parents with youngsters there are encouraged to try to find Santa’s sleigh in town. “Listen for horns and Christmas music,” Harnack said. On Wednesday night, the
sleigh is expected to complete the central and southern parts of the city. Okanogan County Fair Queen Menze Pickering will serve as Santa’s helper that night. On Thursday, Santa is expected to arrive in Okanogan about 6 p.m. near the Okanogan Public Utility District headquarters. The tour will work its way south from there, wrapping up in the area of Virginia Grainger Elementary School, he said. Reigning 2012 Little Miss Rodeo Washington Riata Marchant will be assisting Santa.
An Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office deputy is expected to lead the entourage Thursday night. Santa and his helpers will hand out candy canes to children along the Omak and Okanogan routes each night. Youngsters can also pose beside the sleigh for a photograph with Santa Claus and his reindeer.

time, asking for all of the settlement money. The petitioners turned in nearly 1,400 signatures earlier this fall, only to find out the number was not adequate for the one-third of eligible voters required for review, Swan said. The tally of signatures now totals 2,606, which is more than the one-third, Swan said. Earlier in August, Councilman Benny Marchand of Omak was the lone vote on the 14-member council against disbursement . Marchand said he wanted more time to discuss how the settlement would be disbursed and how liens on disbursements would affect the amount of money each member received. Elders, along with a host of other tribal members, believed the same way. “Members are rightfully upset,” Swan said. In a summary of the dispute between elected officials and tribal members, Swan said that – until a February 2012 press release – not every member knew the tribe filed a claim against the government. The Colvilles filed the suit in 2005. “Tribal members are still trying to understand how this came about,” Swan said, “and how the Business Council reached an out-of-court
compromise that granted the members of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation $193 million.” The Qwam Qwmpt’ plan will allow for funding of senior
centers, health clinics, resource restoration, language development, and other activities that will benefit tribal citizens, according to a tribal press release.

paid by Medicaid or by private pay. “Medicaid pays about $60 per day for some patients,” Verhasselt said. The district reports it cost about $99 per day for residents in assist living. Medicaid only paying over half, but the district writes off the remaining cost or contractuals. “We our looking at every department to see it this is needed for the community,” Verhasselt said. In the letter, the district reported an average of 26 residents in 2011 and 23 this year. The full capacity of the facility is 32 residents. Verhasselt said the district has cut staff and other places they can, but they still must comply with state regulations. “Assisted living facilities are not allowed to do cost reports,” she said. “The state limits the money per patient we can receive.” She said the state is pushing for smaller facilities or group homes. “They are trying to get away
from institutionalization and force people back to the outside,” Verhasselt said. She said smaller group homes are less expense to operate, have less utilities and food cost, and lower wages. Verhasselt said union jobs keep the facility’s expense high with hiring lawyers to negotiate with union contracts. The assisted-living facility was built in 1998 and about $1.59 million of a $2.5 million bond remains on the building, according to Verhasselt. Verhasselt said if the assisted-living facility closed, there are other possibilities for the building. “We could use it for the hospital side of the operation,” she said. “Or we could use it as a patient-care facility, but there are no definite plans for now.” The letter states the district considered selling the facility to a private company, but because the history of losing money, it would be a bad investment.

OMAK – Dr. William L. Dienst has been charged by the state Medical Commission with unprofessional conduct. He is accused of not meeting the standard of care when examining two patients, and with smoking marijuana. Dienst declined to comment. According to the Medical Quality Assurance Commission’s statement of charges, filed Nov. 6 and announced Dec. 10, Dienst treated a 15-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy in the emergency room of North Valley Hospital in Tonasket following an Aug. 22, 2010, vehicle crash. His documentation of the physical examinations “did not meet the standard of care,” the commission alleged. In a second incident, police and hospital administrative staff found Dienst smoking marijuana in his call room at the hospital Feb. 23, 2011, the charges said. He allegedly was awaiting test results for a patient. On Feb. 25, 2011, Dienst contacted the Washington Physicians Health Program and met with that group three days later.
On March 1, 2011, he entered inpatient treatment at Hazelden-Springbrook, an addiction treatment center near Portland, Ore. He was discharged May 13, 2011, and on May 16 signed a five-year monitoring contract with the program. “Respondent admits to smoking marijuana consistently, five to seven times a week, since he was 17 years old,” the commission alleged. “Respondent states that he has used marijuana while on call for 24- to 48-hour shifts five to 10 times over the years as a sleep aid.” Dienst was charged in Okanogan County District Court with possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. Both are misdemeanors. On June 15, 2011, he entered a plea agreement acknowledging possession of 0.2 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The agreement called for a deferred finding within one year if he satisfied conditions of the deferral, which he did, the state alleged. Based on the allegations, Dienst has committed
unprofessional conduct in violation of state law, the commission alleged. Dienst has been licensed by the state to practice as a physician and surgeon since Oct. 2, 1988. He is board-certified in family medicine.

OMAK – Ridership on Okanogan County Transportation and Nutrition buses may be up, but funding is down. Okanogan County Transportation and Nutrition, like other agencies, is dealing with budget Whitener crunch because of decreased funding in the upcoming year, Executive Director Leanne Whitener said. “Ridership is up, especially in the northern part of the county,” Whitener said. “But we know our funding is decreasing because cities are cutting back on spending.” Whitener said ridership has increased in all transit services that includes door-to-door, commuter/job access and shuttle service for Okanogan and Omak. “Over the past two years, our door-to-door service has increased 8 percent, commuter 11 percent and shuttle by 35 percent,” Whitener said. Deanne Konsack, director of operations, said ridership from July 1, 2011 to June 30 was more than 65,000. She expects about 2,000 more riders this coming year. “Two thousand rides is a pretty good pick up,” Konsack said. “When it starts increasing each year, you know people are finding out about our service.” She believes the increased ridership is due to “word of mouth” and it’s a less expense way to travel. While federal funding is down, the county and several cities are continuing to help financially. Okanogan County allocated the same amount — $7,500 — in 2013 as this year, said Nan Kallunk, Okanogan County administrative service director. City Clerk Craig Attwood said Okanogan allocated $2,000 in 2012 and will allocate the same amount this coming budget year. Pateros City Clerk Carrie Wilson said her city allocated $200 in 2012 and the same for 2013. Tonasket allocated $1,000

for transportation and $500 toward the agency’s nutrition program this year, and the same amount is proposed for the 2013 budget, City Clerk Alice Attwood said. But not all cities are paying up. Omak City Clerk Kathy Lobdell said the city is not allocating funds for 2013 because of budget cuts. This year, the agency received $5,600 from the city. Whitener said most of her funding comes from federal grants with the state subsidizing part of the match. The agency depends on the grant money for operations and services. Whitener said the agency submitted a grant proposal for its 2-year cycle from July 1 to June 30, 2015. The budget for the 2-year period for all transportation services is $1.5 million or more than $769,000 for each year of operations. “The amounts are for the upcoming grant cycle and are not current expenses and costs for operations,” she said. She said currently there is a 5-percent match on federal grant, but it will increase to 10 percent this year. Several other agencies service as community partners to help provide matches for grants. The Okanogan Behavioral Health Care provides match for the shuttle and two commuter routes, the Colville Tribe provides match for one commuter route and Aging and Adult Care of Central Washington provides match for door-to-door service. Both Whitener and Konsack agree many people still refer to the agency’s buses as “senior buses.” “Just because they see that little white bus running around, they still think it is just for seniors or disabled people,” Konsack said. Konsack said since there is no bus system in the county, they are not “bus riders.” “If you grew up in Seattle, you learned to use the bus system,” she said. The agency began nutrition services in 1975 and in 1978 added transportation services. There are currently 13 buses and 15 part-time drivers. The buses stop at each senior center in the county, and assist with delivering meals to seniors in each city. “The senior center cooks the meals, we just deliver them,” Konsack said. “Each bus that has a driver that delivers the meals is based at a senior center in that town.”

Let’s remember our law enforcement stars ‘Night of 1,000 Stars’ one of remembering, visual presence
Normally, when you hear about a “night of a thousand stars,” you imagine an on-stage extravaganza. You know — tap dancing, singing, a rip-roaring, glittering gala. Or maybe you think of a crisp, clear night with the
Dee Camp heavens glittering as pinpoints of light glow overhead. one is law Neither enforcement’s version. This Friday, Dec. 14, “Night of 1,000 Stars” will serve a dual
purpose: To remember fallen law enforcement officers and to project a visual presence of law enforcement across the state as officers look for impaired drivers, seatbelt violators and aggressive drivers. Okanogan County has its own stars to remember: Omak Police Department officer Mike Marshall, who was killed in 1998, and Colville tribal officers Louis Millard, killed in 1986, and Roy Bradshaw, killed in 1973. All three were shot in the
line of duty. The Washington State Patrol said law enforcement officers across the state continually put their lives on the line for state residents. “Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, and we take time to remember their service by honoring them with 1,000 stars (badges) out protecting family and friends,” the patrol said. Motorists are asked to make good choices. That means making sure everyone is
buckled up, using a designated driver or alternate means of transportation, and driving safely. Coincidentally, I got a call last week from someone wanting to know if people are still being asked to place a single blue star in their home or yard to remember Marshall. That effort was made in the years immediately following Marshall’s death. Omak Police The Department has placed a blue ribbon in a tree by Marshall’s
Christmas Coloring Contest
memorial bench next to the police station. A blue light is going up this week. Although there’s not a formal effort, it’s always appropriate to remember officers who gave their lives protecting us. If you’re so inclined, blue lights would be appreciated by families of our fallen officers and by our local officers. Dee Camp is a reporter at The Chronicle. She can be reached via email at email@example.com.

In Memoriam Trinity Miracle Smith, 2 Trinity Miracle Smith, born December 28, 2009, passed peacefully in her sleep with her family on December 2, 2012, in Bend, Ore. She was born to Jed and Nora Smith in Bend, Ore. Some of us take a lifetime to make our mark, but Trinity took her short time here and changed what we believe is possible. She marked everyone who met her with a twinkling eye and generous smile. She made joy from the simple pleasures of playing with her sisters and petting the family dogs. Eager to experience the world, Trinity followed her sisters at every opportunity. There are no words to describe the sadness that each of
us who knew her will feel, but each person who held her hand has the indelible mark of her soul to shepherd

Sondra Jacquelynn Schultz, 74 Sondra Jacquelynn Schultz, known affectionately to her family and friends as Sandi, age 74, of Omak, Wash. passed away peacefully at her home on Dec. 4, 2012. She was born at Nakoosa, Wisc., on January 17, 1938 to John and Mamie Diesburg. Sandi was preceded in death by her parents and younger brother, Danny. Her family migrated to Palmer, Alaska in 1949, settling in Fairbanks in 1950. She enjoyed the beauty of Alaska’s wilderness, spending her time hunting and fishing with her brother. In 1955, she married Donald Laird of New York. Together they were blessed with three children. She was a devoted mother to her daughter, Michell “Mickey” McCombs of Omak; and two sons, Danny Laird of Everett, and Scott “Scotty” Laird of Oroville.
In 1973, she moved from Fairbanks to Washington State, settling in a career with The Boeing Company where she worked as a riveter and mechanic until her retirement in 1993. In 1989 Sandi remarried David
Schultz, Sr. of Washington. After his retirement in 1997, Sandi and David moved and settled in Omak, Wash. Ever since, they have enjoyed fishing, camping, and traveling together. Sandi was passionate about her quilting, gardening and spoiling her husband and their nine grandchildren and one greatgrandchild, Justyn McIntyre. A memorial service for Sandi will be held at Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel, 2547 Elmway, Okanogan at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012.

John Felix Steg, 89 John Felix Steg 3/30/1923 – 12/8/2012 John Steg, age 89, passed away in his sleep peacefully at home in Oroville. He was born to Alseit and Elsie Steg in Sandpoint, Idaho where he experienced several outdoor adventures. Both he and his brother, Bob’s, childhood antics can even be found in some of Patrick McManus’ stories of outdoor life in northern Idaho. John’s own colorful stories included: fish tales, hunting, camping, and bear stories. John wore many hats over the course of his life. He was a sailor, lineman, radio repairman, packing boss, Boy Scout Master, beekeeper, father, grandfather, great-Grandfather, great-greatgrandfather, and storyteller. During World War II, he served as an electronic technician on the USS Mt. Olympus, an amphibious force command ship in the Pacific. It was just outside of Tokyo right after the bomb was dropped, riding out big storm waves. His patriotism was modeled to and expected of his family. The call of his Swiss beekeeping heritage and independent spirit lead him to grow his hobby to a beekeeping business. He met the love of his life and married his honey, Betty Buhr, on Feb. 27, 1948. For seven years he worked as a lineman for Mountain States Power Company in Bonner County. They moved to Oroville in 1955, with three children, to become commercial beekeepers, serving area fruit growers for the next 41 years. During the next 16 years, John was also a packing foreman for Stadelman Fruit Company as his family grew to five children. In 1970, he added California almond pollination to the mix of beekeeping and honey production. John and Betty included their children and grandchildren in the daily beekeeping operations, teaching them not only the art of beekeeping, but also added life lessons. He was active in community organizations, serving several years in the Oroville Grange, and the American Legion. As an avid outdoorsman, he made a lasting impression on several young men as a Boy Scout Master. He enjoyed being the Grand Marshall at the Oroville May Day parade with a bee theme. He served as a lay
minister at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. After retiring, he and Betty traveled around the United States on many adventures seeing places and events. They helped with catholic missions in Arizona, Mexico and Guatemala. John had a knack for telling stories about the events in his life that would always captivate his audiences. Family sing-alongs included John on the accordion, with Betty playing the piano. He loved to dance with his wife, even in the living room of their

Loup opens with new manager Ski season on hill begins Saturday
‘Bones’ goes pro in MMA
By Al Camp The Chronicle
State to add new rules for amateurs OKANOGAN – The Cannibull Fight Team’s Michael “Bones” Craig will fight his first professional Mixed Martial Arts opponent Jan. 12. Craig, 21, was born in Tonasket before moving to Spokane. After graduating from North Central High School, he returned to the county Craig in 2009 and trained with the team. “I was really small in high school, that’s where I picked up my nickname,” he said. “I weighed about 80 pounds.” Now weighing 145 pounds, Craig enters the bout following 19 amateur fights, including 16 MMA (11-5) and 3 kick boxing matches (2-1). He will move up a weight to 155 for his professional debut against Joey “The Dream Wrecker” Becker (1-1 pro) of Newport. The match will be at the Washington Camas Center for Community Wellness, 1821 N. Leclerc Road, Usk. Becker was undefeated as an amateur. “I am used to fighting pretty tough dudes,” Craig said, unafraid of Becker’s record or advantage in weight. Craig is a pretty tough “dude,” too, having won amateur titles at 135- and 145- pounds, which he vacates once he turns professional. As if a professional fighter already, Craig made sure to thank the Cannibull team, especially Ryan Harvey and Lee Morrison, sponsors University Clothing, Moore Tattooing in Omak, Intimidation Cloth and Xumout Clothing. “I would also like to thank my mom for giving birth to me and would like to thank the Lord for allowing me to be alive today and for giving me guidance and helping me choose a righteous path to follow.” Craig said. “I can truthfully say MMA has saved my life. The sport requires an incredible amount of discipline,” he said. Craig also will compete in a kickboxing match at 170 pounds Jan. 15 in Port Angeles. He has fought from 135 pounds to 170 pounds, including his previous kickboxing matches at the heavier weight. Trevor Willis, 17, Omak, will be competing in his third amateur fight (2-0) the same night and member of the Cannibull Fight Team. Willis, a junior at Okanogan High School, shows on the fight card at 135 pounds. He is sponsored by Xtreme Power Sports. ◆◆◆◆◆ On the heels of Mixed Martial Arts popularity, the state is working on new rules for amateur events to go into affect next year. The rules are meant to help keep athletes safe while competing in amateur events when the public is invited and admission is charged, said Christine Anthony with the state Department of Licensing. The rules cover events hosted by training facilities, amateur sanctioning organizations and promoters.

LOUP LOUP – The Loup Loup Ski Bowl’s new general manager is excited to get skiing started at the hill west of Okanogan. Sandy Liman started at the hill this fall after the departure of Sharla Lynn. “The Loup is kind of a gem the way it sits right now,” Liman said. “The original thrill of skiing was Liman to drive to a ski area, put on your boots, walk a couple feet for a lift ticket at a reasonable price, do a couple runs, hit the ski lodge for some hot chocolate , ski a couple more runs and go home.” Big skis hills feel more like shopping malls, Liman said. You need to take a shuttle bus in, there are expensive day tickets and everybody is dressed to the nines. If you are not color-coordinated, you are a second-class citizen. “We can deliver better at the Loup than some of these mega resorts. We are friendly, the lift guys are laughing with you, the ski patrol is all volunteers. The Loup is an American classic. You don’t want to change it too drastically.” Liman, 68, said his plans are to promote the hill while looking for ways to improve the non-skiing time for skiers. “Skiing has evolved,” Liman said, quoting Warren Miller that skiing is only 10 percent skiing. “Skiers should be able to do other things, like having a place to put your feet by a fire, a social part. “People are very friendly at ski resorts. So I want to add things in that direction.”

Brewster knocks off ACH, Reardan Okanogan dunks Colville, 54-43 By Al Camp The Chronicle COULEE CITY – The Brewster High School girls basketball team started slow but finished strong in beating Almira/Coulee Hartline, 60-35, on Dec. 8. “We had a little bit of a let down after Friday,” coach Roger Boesel said of the second game in two days. The ACH loss was the second in less than a week to a team from Okanogan County. But the Brewster victory was the second in two nights. Brewster led 17-15 at the half, then out-scored ACH 3320 in the second half. “We did not play with near the energy we played with on Friday,” Boesel said. Chandler Smith scored 26 points and Monica Landdeck 15 points for Brewster (3-0). Brynna Stevens scored 14 for ACH (3-2). Brewster is at Omak (1-3) on Thursday, Dec. 13, and returns home for Quincy (1-2) on Saturday, Dec. 15. The Warriors, who finished third in state 1B last year, return home for Kittitas on Friday, Dec. 14. Brewster (60) - Rincon 0, Boesel 8, Hammons 4, Burgett 0, Landdeck 15, Smith 26, Miller 2, Brammer 0, Gebbers 5. Almira/Coulee-Hartline (35) - Martin 6, Ashley 3, Hughes 0, Fox 7, Pryor 0, Stevens 14, Isaac 2, Hunt 0, Rockett 3, Emerson 0. On Dec. 7, the Brewster girls played lights out basketball in beating Reardan, 69-66, in a highly anticipated and watched non-league game Dec. 7. Reardan won the state 2B title last year, 65-57, over Brewster led by Kelsey Moos, who has since signed to play at Arizona State next year. With Moos signed, college scouts from Washington State, Oregon State and LoyolaMarymount in Los Angeles were in attendance to watch junior Chandler Smith take on Moos once again.
The coach said it’s a bit unusual to have college representatives at games, but not unprecedented. Coaches followed Jeni Boesel (three-time state MVP) before she played at Idaho State University and Kyla Evans, who played at Eastern Washington University. “Coaches haven’t been around here for a while,” Boesel said. Reardan jumped out to a 7-0 lead following a 3-point shot by Moos only to have the Bears battle back into the game, down 11-10. The physical, fast-paced game found Reardan’s Tory Wynecoop, a 5-3 senior with family ties to the Colville Reservation, leaving the game after being hit on the nose following a scramble for a rebound. The game was delayed several minutes to get Wynecoop off the court and attended to. “She broke her nose a couple weeks ago,” Boesel said. “They had a mask for her, but it did not fit right. They were waiting for a mask to be fitted for her. She might have a concussion. She was definitely out of it.” Following the break of about 10 minutes, Reardan stormed to a 21-12 first quarter lead that was extended to 25-14 early in the second quarter. The Bears went on a rampage from there, outscoring Reardan, 21-3, the rest of the period to lead, 35-28, at the half. Then the lights went out in the gym, causing fans to scurry into the adjacent commons. “The lights were out 15 or 20 minutes,” Boesel said of the second delay. “They were on a timer and it did not get reset when school got out.” Brewster was poised to pull away in the second half only to watch Reardan get within six points late. “We missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with about 13 or 14 seconds left,” Boesel said. “They hit a 3 with a second or two left. “Throughout the course of the game it was close, we just had a bigger lead at the end.” Moos lit up Brewster’s mandefense for 37 points.
Al Camp/The Chronicle
Brewster’s Jessie Hammons, left, and Markie Miller go for a loose ball against Reardan on Dec. 14. Following the play is the Indians’ Katy Burge. Brewster did not enter the game any special game plan to contain Moos, the coach said. “We played straight man,” he said. “We were not going to worry about any one person. Maybe we should have worried more about her.” Smith and Monica Landdeck took turns guarding Moos. Brette Boesel scored 21 points to lead Brewster. Landdeck scored 16, Smith 13 and Jessie Hammons 10. The game last so long that guard Becky Mae Taylor, who was in Omak playing Cinderella in a ballet, got back in time to watch several minutes of the game and greet the team in the locker room. Taylor was expected back with Brewster (3-0) for league games at Omak (1-3) on Friday, Dec. 14, and at home against
Quincy (1-2) on Saturday, Dec. 15. “We need to be in shape if we intend to play fast,” Boesel said. “We play tough man-toman defense. If we are going to do that, we need to be in shape.” Reardan (66) - Johnson 3, Tinsley 0, Moos 37, Frolov 9, Gray 3, Heath 5, Anderson 0, Wynecoop 0, Wollweber 0, Burge 9. Brewster (69) - Rincon 0, Boesel 21, Hammons 10, Burgett 0, Landdeck 16, Smith 13, Miller 4, Brammer 0, Gebbers 6. ◆◆◆◆◆ COLVILLE - The Okanogan High School girls basketball team pulled away to beat Colville, 54-43, in a non-league game Dec. 8. Okanogan led 31-20 at the half and held a 20-plus lead in the second half, coach Bryan Boesel said.
Okanogan got several players into early foul trouble, including Kara Staggs. “Kara played probably less than half the game,” the coach said. “All the kids picked it up.” Senior Megan Parks took over leadership of the team when Staggs sat, Boesel said. “It really took all seven girls with Kara out to play as a team,” Boesel said. “We did some good things with her out of the game. I was really pleased with that.” Caitlyn Behymer led the way with 13 points for Okanogan (40). Cameron Moses and Kara Staggs each scored 10 points. Cascade (3-0) is at Okanogan for league play on Friday, Dec. 14. Okanogan (54) - Moses 10, Staggs 10, Parks 5, Chiles 4, Egbert 4, Romero 0, VanderWeide 8, Behymer 13. ◆◆◆◆◆ SOAP LAKE – Soap Lake eked out a 50-49 overtime win over Bridgeport in a non-league game Dec. 8. “It was a back and forth game with Soap Lake having the early lead,” Bridgeport coach Brandon Boyd said. The teams were tied at the half before Bridgeport pulled ahead in the fourth quarter. Soap Lake’s Irina Turchik hit a 3-pointer in the last minute to send the game into overtime. Bridgeport’s Deycy MonjeLopez hit a 3-pointer for a brief 1-point lead in the final minute of overtime. The Eagles made 5 of its 7 points from the free throw line, including two in the final seconds for the win. “It was the first time any of the girls had ever playing in an overtime basketball game,” Boyd said, noting the team will learn from the loss. Monje-Lopez scored 11 points to lead Bridgeport. Cinthia Piedra scored 21 points to lead Soap Lake. Bridgeport (49) - Monje-Lopez 11, Velasquez 9, Martinez 11, Aisha Herrejon 8. ◆◆◆◆◆ OROVILLE – The Chelan High School girls basketball team popped Oroville, 64-33, in a non-league game Dec. 8.

challenge of guarding Colville’s 6-9 junior Matt Hubbard, who is getting lots of looks from Division I schools, Carlquist said. “He blocked six of our shots in the first half, but none in the second half,” the coach said. “We did a very good ob running out the clock.

Tonasket wrestlers take first at Ephrata The Chronicle TONASKET – The Tonasket High School wrestling team took first place Dec. 8 at the Ephrata Invitational. The Tigers finished with 159 points, outdistancing secondplace Ephrata at 136. The Tigers were led by champions Collin Aitcheson at 120 pounds, Austin Booker at 170, Frank Holfelz at 195 and Chad Edwards at 285. Finishing second were Jeffrey Stedtfeld at 132 and John Rawley at 220.
Trevor Peterson at 113, Dalton Wahl at 138, Derek Rimestad at 152, Austin Knowlton at 16 and Tanner Good at 285 all won bronze medals. Rade Pilkinton at 106 took fourth place. Sixth place went to Tim Frazier at 126, Boyd Lorz at 113 and Dyllan Walton at 132. “Leaving Tonasket at 5:30 a.m. didn’t seem to have an ill effect on our wrestlers,” coach Dave Mitchell said. “They wrestled tough, took a little nap between matches and came out
and wrestled aggressively. We had a great following at Ephrata.” Austin Knowlton got a pin for Tonasket in its thumping of Liberty Bell, 49-19, on Dec. 6. Omak comes to Tonasket at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12. The team sends seven to North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene for the Tri-State Tournament on Dec. 14-15.

Sidelines From B1 “Mixed martial arts is very popular, and there is a growing number of amateur mixed martial arts events being held in various venues without any oversight or safety rules in place for the athletes,” Licensing Director Alan Haight said. The new rules take effect on January 1, 2013, and will establish licensing requirements for event holders, officials and participants. They also will set license and renewal fees and introduce standard rules for competition and conduct. ◆◆◆◆◆ The News-Tribune in Tacoma, which I think has the best high school sports blog in the state, somehow left out Okanogan in its recent initial ranking of teams posted earlier this month. The News-Tribune posted a second poll a week later, Dec. 9, with Okanogan jumping into the Top 10 at No. 5. Chelan is No. 9 and Brewster No. 10. I guess I can forgive the newspaper for the initial oversight, and perhaps toast them. But come on, the Bulldogs return state MVP Kara Staggs, who also is a two-time league MVP. Experienced players returning include Caitlyn Behymer, Megan Parks and Kelsey Chiles to Cameron Moses and Vanessa VanderWeide.
Loup From B1 He’s also like to start a social night once a month, with friendly relay competition amongst four-person Nordic teams covering a 15-minute route starting and ending at the lodge. The fun would start in the evening, with skiers using headlamps and waiting between runs in the lodge. Teams would be handicapped, with none being all “Lycra clad, rice cake eaters,” he said. “If there is demand, we will do more.” Liman saw an advertisement for the Loup job, with the hill being in what he calls the “Metogan,” half way between the Methow and Okanogan valleys. “I toyed with the idea, and kind of rejected it,” he said of the position. “But I kept thinking about, it. This industry has been so good to me. Maybe I can give something back.” Lynn, who left in June, is living in Twisp, raising a son and is involved with roller derby, Liman said. Liman discovered the valley while working for K2 on Vashon Island and Seattle. “I came over to the Methow Valley 20 some years ago for mountain biking and cross country skiing. It was for the lifestyle here.” After retiring about three years ago, he built a log cabin near Twisp. “A close friend died suddenly and it jolted me,” Liman said. “Maybe you don’t have your dreams later in life, so I need to make my dreams now. You don’t get to live out your plan of building your dream house when you are 70. It’s not a dream house, it’s a cabin.” Soon Liman was leaving behind his condo in Seattle and spending more time at the cabin. Liman’s love of skiing and promoting the sport goes back to his roots on the east coast. “We had a hill a lot like the Loup,” Liman said of Bellayre Ski Center in New York, a hill with a 800-foot vertical drop. “It looked huge to me when I was only 6.” Liman grew up in Westchester, N.Y. then moved to New Hampshire, where he went to school while skiing. He became a ranked junior national racer, skied at the University of Colorado and ended up being on an AllAmerican ski team. Although he did not ski in the Olympics, he rubbed shoulders and competed against many that did. He was injured in 1966 his senior year in college. “I had a great career in skiing,” he said. With his skiing background, he became a natural working with ski manufacturers, who imported equipment back in the 1960s, when the industry took off. “I was lucky enough, the ski industry was doing 20 percent a year increases,” he said. He worked for various companies that imported boots, bindings, worked with technicians in vans that followed skiers around the U.S. and Europe and helped establish U.S. Ski Team strategies.
Okanogan also has some sharp freshmen, including Janice and Alexis Romero, Peyton Oules and Keanna Egbert, the sister of Ty Egbert now on scholarship at University of Idaho. The Bulldogs are starting fast at 4-0 prior to the start of league play this week. Teams will be fighting for a Top 4 finish in the Caribou Trail League to reach postseason play and one of three berths to state from crossover games with the Northeast 1A League. The CTL will be tough for boys and girls. But the girls appear to have five frontrunners for those four positions, so it’s going to be difficult just reaching the league tournament. And if the Tribune’s poll is to be believed, No. 2 Freeman and No. 5 Lakeside will not be pushovers in crossover games. I’ve got my calendar marked for Jan. 3, when Brewster (3-0) is at Okanogan and Jan. 29 when the Bulldogs go the Bears den. I should probably circle dates for No. 10 Chelan, too. Of note, Okanogan (4-0) and Tonasket (4-0) boys started the season undefeated. They were to play the first time Tuesday, Dec. 11. The Tigers head south to Okanogan for a rematch Jan. 25.

Lots of snow for opener The Chronicle LOUP LOUP – Expect Loup Loup Ski Bowl to open Saturday after it received a couple inches of new snow Sunday. The forecast is for more snow in the middle of the week. “Telemetry looks good, grooming looks good, life support systems working, quad chair ready to roll, ski shop bustling, ticket windows ready, day lodge fireplace crackling, chestnuts roasting by the open fire,” said excited general manager Sandy Liman. “We have snow up the ying yang. It’s embarrassing the amount of snow we have and the valley doesn’t have.” The ticket window will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday and Friday for those wishing wanting to get a jump on skiing and get their ski pass photos done. The Wolf Pack Pass, which gives a discount on lift tickets, will be on sale as well as lastminute rental, repair and ski adjustment needs, Liman said. The hills has been compacted twice and a tiller used a couple times. “We have the right kind of snow,” Liman said. “The last few storms rained at 3,800 feet and snowed 8 inches at 3,900. Our base is 4,000 feet, so we have the snow. “It’s going to be a great opening day.” Loup hours will be 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. (last chair leaves) on weekends, Wednesday and Friday. The hill plans to stay open every day but Christmas, Dec. 25, and partially open Dec. 24, from the opening to Jan. 2.
“Even if I was not on the ski team, I knew a lot of ski team kids in there and used to combine with business,” he said. “I was living the lifestyle.” His work allowed him to attend the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, N.Y. “It was interesting to see the whole country come together” over hockey, he said of attending the games. “It was pretty amazing. I was there with a couple college classmates at the Russian game.” The U.S. unexpectedly beat Russia in the semifinals and then Norway for the gold medal. Liman brings not only skiing and manufacturing experience, but also business acumen with a marketing degree. “I’ve never had a job that I did not like, or worked in an industry I did not like,” he said. “Everyone likes to carve a good turn,” he said. “I don’t do the bumps any more. They are too hard on the back. But the latest equipment has given back some that nature has taken away.” Sitzmark near Havillah and northeast of Tonasket awaits more snow before opening.
