A crew assesses damage to McLaughlin Canyon Road after a storm pelted the area with nearly a half-inch of rain and hail.

Rain and hail damage roads, wash out yards By Sheila Corson and Brenda Starkey The Chronicle TONASKET – Sudden, violent thunderstorms washed out roads, buried gardens and damaged at least one vehicle Sunday night, Sept. 19. Okanogan County Emergency Manager Scott Miller said the storm moved from west to east over Crumbacher toward Janis bridge and McLaughlin Canyon and into Aeneas Valley between 7 and 8 p.m. Sunday. Extremely heavy rain, hail and lightning were too much for culverts and ditches to handle. The worst damage was to McLaughlin Canyon and Hardy roads, county officials said. Rampaging waters cut a trench in McLaughlin Canyon Road 10 feet deep and 15 feet across, according to Kenny Stanley, Okanogan County Public Works. Bill Temby was working to make his driveway off North Sage Hills Road passable enough to get a load of gravel in

” to fill an area of sitting water Monday afternoon. “”It rained like pouring water out of a boot for a good hour and a half,” he said, adding that his mother-in-law, Kathy Maple, has lived in the area for 60 years and had never seen it rain that hard. The storm kept rebuilding in the area, said Meteorologist Bob Tobin of the National Weather Service in Spokane. Hail the size of dimes was reported accumulating on the ground in some areas, he said. Normally, that type of thunderstorm builds up and then lasts 10-15 minutes, he said. But in this case the storm just kept regenerating in the same area. He said there were no accurate measurements in the area hardest hit, but in Aeneas

Valley above McLaughlin Canyon, one observer reported 0.43 inch in less than an hour. Temby said his neighbor, Craig Weeks, went to U.S. Highway 97 where his dad picked him up so he could get to work to help with repair efforts. Weeks is a county public works employee. At Crumbacher, resident Corina Radford said she and her family watched the storm from their porch. Rain came off the roof like a waterfall. Driveways were turned into gullies and pieces of the main road were washed away. Ditches were either filled with mud or became canyons. All the trails on her property were washed away. “My garden, gazebo and outdoor kitchen are full of mud and horse poo,” Radford said.

Resident Angel Ross said her family was driving home when the storm hit. The rain was so heavy, they had to pull off U.S. Highway 97 and wait. While the rain and hail – which she described as just a bit smaller than ping-pong balls – hit the car, they couldn’t hear each other talking in the vehicle. They came home to find that the neighbor’s white rock gravel had been washed into their yard. At The Father’s Ranch on state Highway 20 east of Tonasket, Craig Lofthus had mud mixed in with his white gravel roads. There was also trenching on the roads and in some spots mounds of mud that came down from higher ground, he said. “The runoff came fast,” he said. Lofthus said they were able to sandbag the building entrances, so that damage was limited to the roads. Water covered state Highway 20 east of town in three places, and crews were repairing damage along U.S. Highway 97 about five miles south of Tonasket.

OMAK — Several school districts in Okanogan and Ferry counties must take corrective actions because their students didn’t pass some areas of new statewide tests. The Measurement of Student Progress, for grades three through eight, and High School Proficiency Exam, for 10th-graders, were administered last spring. They replaced the Washington Assessment of Student Learning. High school students must pass the HSPE or stateapproved alternative tests to graduate. The tests also are used by the state to fulfill annual yearly progress requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act. In Okanogan and Ferry counties, only the Methow Valley and Pateros students met AYP standards at all levels – elementary for third- through fifth-graders, middle school for grades six through eight and high school for 10th-graders — in both reading and math. All other districts in the two counties had at least one group

that didn’t meet the standards in one or both areas. Some – Brewster, Grand Coulee Dam and Nespelem — didn’t meet any. Except for the Methow Valley and Pateros, and a couple small districts whose complete results were not released because of small numbers of students, remaining districts in both counties failed to meet the math standard at any level. Turner Statewide, third- through fifth-graders students didn’t make AYP in reading and math. At the middle school level, grades six through eight, students statewide met AYP in reading, but not in math. Sophomores met AYP goals in reading, but not math. At the same time, Washington students in the class of 2009 were No. 1 on the SAT nationwide. Nearly 37,000 Washington students took the SAT last school year, including 29,000 public school students, according to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Nespelem man killed SUV hits tree south of Omak; another man is injured Sheila Corson The Chronicle OMAK — A Nespelem man died in a one-vehicle crash 10.5 miles south of town the morning of Sept. 19. Patrick A. Yallup, Jr., 26, died when the SUV he was driving went off state Highway 155 and hit a tree. He was not wearing a seatbelt, the Washington State Patrol said. Yallup's brother, Ryan D. Yallup, 18, was a passenger in the vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Mid-Valley Hospital, Omak, with arm, leg and lung injuries, the patrol said. Mid-Valley Hospital listed his condition as stable as of Tuesday morning. Patrick Yallup was a cook for tribal corrections, having once been an inmate himself. Sgt. Dave Kirk said Yallup and his wife, Sheena Springer, met as trusties in the facility and both decided to change their ways. "The guy turned himself around," Kirk said. "They were

both the best workers." After getting his life back on track, Yallup was hired at the facility, Kirk said. He and Springer, married in a traditional Native American ceremony, had a baby girl named Malaeigha, in June 2009. P. Yallup Yallup also adopted a niece and nephew, whom he regarded as his own children, Kirk said. “Pat was the kindest person you ever met in the world,” Kirk said. “"I have nothing but good things to say about him.” It is unclear at this point what will happen to the niece and nephew now that Yallup has died. Since he and Springer were not legally married, the children likely will have to go to another close relative, Kirk said. They were hoping to marry legally once they gathered some more money. Kirk, whose daughter

Oroville man sentenced for molestation Father of young girl was shown photos by mistake By Brenda Starkey The Chronicle OROVILLE – A local man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for molesting a 5-yearold girl after he inadvertently showed the father of his victim digital photos of the crime. David Wayne George, 64, Oroville, pleaded guilty in Washington County Oregon Circuit Court in a plea

agreement Aug. 31 to eight counts, two each of first-degree sodomy, first-degree unlawful sexual penetration, first-degree sexual abuse and firstdegree rape. George also faces federal charges of production of child pornography and interstate travel with George the intent to have sex with a child. A plea

hearing is scheduled for Oct. 7 in U.S. District Court in Portland. George was estranged from the girl’s step-mother, but kept in touch with her son and his children, visiting their Tigard, Ore., home for family occasions, Washington County Assistant District Attorney Paul Maloney said. After Thanksgiving dinner in 2009, he offered to show the girl’s father photos of the children. He accidently handed over memory cards to the father that included one with pornographic images of the girl.

“It had to be the worst Thanksgiving ever,” Maloney said. The girl’s father erupted in anger at seeing the young girl in sexual poses and various sex acts with George. George flippantly told him to call the police, Maloney said. He has been in custody since then. The crimes apparently spanned two years, Maloney said. George is in federal custody, and because of Jessica’s Law, will serve the entire 25 years with no chance for an early parole, Maloney said.

Educator appeals conviction NESPELEM — A Paschal Sherman Indian School staff member has appealed his conviction for indecent liberties. Clinton Nicholson was found guilty of the crime by a Colville Tribal Court jury June 17. He was arrested after he put his hand on the inner thigh of a 12year-old girl. The two were riding a four-wheeler together and he was sitting behind the girl. Because of the appeal, the court declined to release further information about the case. — The Chronicle He will be subject to court supervision for life, according to court documents. Maloney said it is his

understanding that George will serve his time in federal prison concurrent with his federal sentence.

State Creek doesn’t really run uphill A few years ago, in talking with a member of the Friends of the Okanogan Lobe, I commented that I feared the day when I would say in the column something about geology that would set their teeth on edge. The friends are four local men who study local geological features, and make field trips to further that study. Two are retired geologists, two others interested students. “It hasn’t happened yet,” he said. Now, surely, it has happened in the column of two weeks ago when I had State Creek running uphill. Most unlikely. Early Winters and State Creeks battled it out as each eroded back to its headwaters. Early Winters finally took over the headwaters of State, then cut its valley deeper, creating a new ridge which helped define Washington Pass. But my statement that State Creek exits the pass area through the Skagit system was pure error. When I proposed that State Creek flows into Bridge Creek, then down to the Stehekin country and Lake Chelan and so to the Columbia, he said, “You may be right.” A plaque consisting of four

EXPLORING THE OKANOGAN Elizabeth Widel panels with drawings and text at the Washington Pass overlook explains what happened. As you stand on an outcrop of solid rock, says the text, it is the end of a ridge since eroded away. Its opposite end can be seen on the opposite valley wall. I have not yet found this. Pictured is part of that opposite valley wall on a day when mist was swirling around the peaks. These sharp summits are remnants from the downcutting of the original valley. However, my unconscious attempt to change the habits of flowing water should not be allowed to stand. State, a normal creek, flows naturally. It is, as the saying goes, “downhill all the way.”

Twisp leadership gets a shakeup By Roger Harnack The Chronicle TWISP — There’s a shakeup going on at Town Hall. At least eight leaders have left this year, and now Mayor Bill Boosman is threatening to add his name to the turnover list. Boosman, who defeated John Lomison in last November’s general election, said in a Sept. 7 letter that he will resign unless the Town Council increases his stipend, currently $400 per month. “. . . The needs of the town are significantly greater than the funding for the position,” Boosman wrote in his letter to the council. Boosman couldn’t be reached for comment. Downplaying any perceived criticism of Boosman, Lomison said the changes could’ve come on anybody’s watch. The mayor’s potential departure comes on the heels of numerous changes in the town’s leadership, including: • The resignation of ClerkTreasurer Colleen Storms, who is still helping out the city while officials look for her replacement. • The departure of Public Works Superintendent Randy Johnson, who was replaced by Howard Moss.

• Two changes in the chief of police position. Interim chief Ty Sheehan recently replaced Rob Hall. Hall replaced Rick Balam, who Boosman retired at the beginning of the year. • The appointment of Hans Smith to the Town Council, to fill a vacancy left by Tina DiRienzo. • The appointment of Vicki Hallowell to the Planning Commission. • The selection of Don Ashford as the replacement for Rusty Post on the Public Development Authority Board. • The recent resignation of Councilman Tom Mulgrew. That seat on the council remains vacant. Since last spring, Boosman has made statements that his mayoral duties require a significant amount of time more than he bargained for – he formally requested a pay increase in July. Earlier this month, Councilman Smith moved for the city to increase Boosman’s pay to $2,000 per month – the motion died for lack of a

second. Smith’s follow-up motion for a $1,500 stipend and a Councilman Clint Estes motion to set the amount at $1,000 also Hall failed for no seconds. Lomison questions the need for an increased stipend, noting that hiring new staff and training future leaders will provide relief for the mayor. “Once these people are replaced, it’ll get back to normal,” Lomison said, noting Boosman has “really stretched himself thin.” Earlier this year, Lomison made an unsuccessful bid for a vacancy on the town council. He said he’s still interested in serving, and helping his community get back on its feet. According to Lomison, town officials have flirted with the idea of hiring a town administrator. But that move may be too costly. In the meantime, Lomison suggests Boosman start filling vacant positions. “Nothing is going to happen until you fill some of those holes,” he said. “That’s squarely on the mayor’s shoulders.”

Trial enters second week Two men charged in 2009 drive-by shooting in Omak By Al Camp The Chronicle OKANOGAN — The trial of two men accused of shooting another man in the head last year is in its second week. Jury selection started Sept. 15 for co-defendants Jose L. Sanchez, 21, Bridgeport, and Daniel Arzatel-Lopez, 25, Waterville. Testimony started the next day and will continue this week, when the trial is expected to finish. The men, along with Orlando Santos-Rubio, 19, Bridgeport, and “Smiley” Christian Cebreros-Godina, 22, Aurora, Colo., allegedly were in a car from which someone shot at a van. A passenger in that vehicle, Juan Santana “Chulo” Contreras, 25, Lapwai, Idaho, was struck in the forehead Aug. 7, 2009, in east Omak. Contreras survived the shooting after several weeks of hospitalization. He and several others from Idaho are attending the trial. Santos-Rubio pleaded guilty Dec. 10, 2009, to first-degree assault with a deadly weapon drive-by shooting. He testified most of Friday as part of a plea agreement to the lesser charge. He’s set for sentencing Sept. 23. During the trial, the state said it was recommending a sentence of 83.25 months. Defense attorney Anthony Castelda pointed out that the sentence was far below the range of 240-300 months his client, Arzatel-Lopez, and Sanchez could face if found guilty of attempted murder with a firearm enhancement.



Cebreros-Godina is set for trial Oct. 12. Security was high for the trial that involves gang members, according to testimony last week. Several deputies operate a metal detector before people can get close to the courtroom. Blinds were shut. Jail personnel rotated duty near the defendants. The front row of seats was taped off to keep spectators farther back. Santos-Rubio testified in a quiet voice, telling of how the men came together at his Bridgeport residence and at Waterville before coming north to the Omak Stampede rodeo. They parked and entered the carnival area, where they met a couple friends and then walked to 15 members of the Barrios Los Padrinos, who were wearing red and flashing signs, Santos-Rubio said. Santos-Rubio said he and the other defendants were members of the Native Gangster Bloods, which use blue as their color. A few words were spoken and the groups went their own ways, Santos-Rubio said. “There was a lot of staring,” he said. Santos-Rubio was driving because no one else possessed a license. The four men went across the Central Avenue bridge, where they spotted some of the group wearing red.

They saw them again in front of the North Country Pub, where Sanchez pointed a two-shot pistol out a window and pulled the trigger, Santos-Rubio said. The weapon failed to fire, Santos-Rubio testified. Santos-Rubio described how the men later drove past a van they thought contained members of BLP and the hand gun did fire, with a bullet striking Contreras in the forehead. Contreras was in Omak for a rap concert. Several of those entertainers were hawking their CDs near the rides, SantosRubio said. In cross examination Mike Lynch, Sanchez’s attorney, asked Santos-Rubio how he could be driving and watch as a weapon was produced by Arzatel-Lopez and handed to Sanchez in the back seat behind Santos-Rubio and how he could see Sanchez’s arm out a side mirror pointing a weapon. Both Lynch and Castelda tried to show that Santos-Rubio had changed his story from his initial interview to two later interviews and then to what he was saying at the trial. Castelda contended Santos-Rubio was now describing two interactions at the park instead of one, as he allegedly mentioned in his earlier interviews. The attorneys noted this was the first time Santos-Rubio ever mentioned Sanchez aiming and pulling the trigger of the weapon as they drove past the Pub. Lynch questioned how Santos-Rubio could see the gun and Sanchez’s arm all in the rear view mirror. Prosecutor Karl Sloan objected, saying Lynch’s questioning was argumentative. “You bet,” Lynch said. “I’m questioning what this witness saw.”

GOP endorses challenger The Chronicle OMAK — The Okanogan County Republican Central Committee has endorsed challenger Cliff Courtney for 12th District representative over incumbent Republican Mike Armstrong of Wenatchee. Nicole Kuchenbuch and Charles Short, state committeewoman and

committeeman, made the announcement. Kuchenbuch said Courtney, Stehekin, has experience surrounding land, water and regulatory issues that have negatively impacted the eastern Washington economy. “We were also very impressed with his extensive knowledge of the state and federal Constitutions and his

commitment to the defense of individual liberty,” she said. Short pointed to the transparency and honesty Courtney displayed during party questioning. Short said several county Republicans were frustrated with politicians whose only concern is with high-density areas and ignore less concentrated areas.

A front door and store inventory surround an unoccupied truck that crashed into the Omak NAPA store on Sept. 14.

Truck hits parts store Runaway pickup rolls across Riverside Drive By Dee Camp The Chronicle OMAK — A runaway pickup truck rolled across Riverside Drive crashed into the NAPA Auto Parts store Sept. 14. No one was injured. Owner Carol Cooke, 69,

Tonasket, had stopped at the Stampede Mini Mart across the street to buy gas and was outside the truck when it rolled away, according to an Omak police report. The truck crossed Riverside Drive, where westbound motorist Karen L. Booth, 56, Twisp, sped up to avoid hitting it, the police said. The pickup then rolled across the NAPA parking lot and hit the building, 22 E. Riverside Drive, officer Darren

Duncan’s report said. NAPA Manager George Rivera said those inside the store had no warning except as the truck crashed through the front door and windows. The vehicle knocked over some displays and came to rest against shelving. The store remained open. Damage estimates were not available, the police and Rivera said. The Omak Fire Department also responded.

Man charged with growing pot By Al Camp The Chronicle OKANOGAN — A warrant was issued for an Oroville man who allegedly with two others grew more than 200 marijuana plants near Lost Lake. Jorge Luis Padilla Villa was charged Sept. 10 in Okanogan County Superior Court with manufacture of marijuana possession with intent to manufacture or deliver marijuana and use of drug paraphernalia. Villa, who is listed as either 27 or 25 years old, allegedly was growing marijuana in a couple places in the county. A warrant was issued with a nationwide arrest and bail of $50,000. He was believed to be possibly living in California. A tip to the North Central Washington Narcotics Task

Force told of marijuana growing in the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area west of Tonasket. After the grow was located, the task force used video cameras to view a pickup and men working the grow, court records said. Leads allegedly led the task force to a grow near Ellisforde and then to Lost Lake, where cameras also were installed. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Spokane, also worked with the task force. Villa allegedly carried a rifle and walked up to the camera and looked directly into it before he and another man, who would be arrested later, walked away. The Lost Lake grow allegedly was spotted Aug. 13 by helicopter. A search warrant was issued Aug. 17. A warrant allegedly produced at a residence near Oroville in Villa’s bedroom,

growing supplies including clothing, shelters and clothing allegedly were seen in the videos. At Lost Lake, more than 200 growing plants were found, plus processed marijuana. It was estimated more than $1,000 damage was done to the forest from cutting of trees, garbage, terraced hillsides and holes for holding water, court records said. One of the three men, who returned to be with his father, was arrested Aug. 30. He allegedly told officers the men thought the camera was there to catch anyone trying to damage nearby logging equipment. The man allegedly told a DEA agent that he and his two brothers worked the grows, with one brother bringing supplies to the other two who tended the plants.

Dillon Dorsten graduated basic training on Sept. 8, 2010, from Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. Dillon is at Ft. Huachuca for military intelligence schooling. He is coming home at the end of January, 2011, for a few weeks.

Our View

Lawsuit ruling apropos for NCW Local snowmobilers are celebrating a small victory over U.S. Fish and Wildlife and its socalled critical habitat designation for lynx in Okanogan County and other North Central Washington areas. That victory is also a win for forest-users and businesses in Chelan, Ferry and Okanogan counties. On Sept. 9, U.S. District Court of Wyoming Judge Nancy Freundenthal agreed with local snowmobilers that the agency had not considered the total economic effect of designating large tracts of land as critical lynx habitat. The designation – which covered 39,000 square miles of forest in North Idaho, western Wyoming, western Montana, Maine, Minnesota and Washington – included approximately 2,000 square miles in Okanogan and Chelan counties. Another 500 square miles were designated in the Kettle Range of Ferry County. Snowmobilers had challenged the agency’s 2009 designation on the grounds it would jeopardize public use of forests and hurt related businesses. They were right. And the judge agreed. Freundenthal found that at least one business in Washington state had already been adversely impacted by the agency’s rulemaking. In her opinion, the judge said Fish and Wildlife presented a “highly questionable” analysis of the true effects of the designation on North Central Washington. Federal rules require such designations to be based on scientific data considering “the economic impact, and any other relevant impact, of specifying a particular area as critical habitat.” Snowmobiler and activist Gary Allard previously estimated snowmobiling brings $5.6 million annually into Okanogan County alone. That’s not chump change. The judge was correct in her application of the regulations as they apply to North Central Washington. Her decision opens the door for other forest users – ATV groups, hikers, mountain bikers, etc. – to challenge agencies taking steps that may restrict public use of the forest, and at the same time further damage our fragile economy. In this recession, it is very important to keep our forests open for recreational use. It is also important that our forests remain open for our children and grandchildren. Local snowmobilers should be commended for taking up the challenge and protecting our way of life and economy.

Bear attack was partly human fault Living in North Central Washington means living with wildlife. It also means being knowledgeable about area wildlife and acting responsibly. News coverage of a black bear attack this past weekend at Lake Wenatchee proves the point. If you hadn’t heard, a Bellevue city councilman with a vacation home at the lake was attacked by a black bear. As a result, he is recovering at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he has undergone reconstructive surgery. Although details leading up to the attack have yet to be released, the 148-pound female bear, without cubs, was hunted down and killed. Was this attack the bear’s fault? Maybe not. Even without the details of events leading up to the attack, we have to consider that it was, at least partly, the fault of the victim, his neighbors and others. And it should be a lesson for

ON THE HOT SEAT Roger Harnack those of us living in Okanogan and Ferry counties. Each year, we build more houses in wildland interfaces, pushing development deeper into wildlife habitat. Wildlife living in newly developed areas are forced either farther back into the woods or drawn into our yards. Many residents of these homes are not prepared for the lifestyle changes that must come with living responsibly in the woods and sharing the space with wildlife. They still put garbage cans outside, rather than locking them in a garage or shed. They plant gardens, often with fruit bears and other wildlife will

find tasty. And they let dogs and cats run freely, often without thinking of how wildlife will react. Those activities might be fine for life in urban areas, but there are repercussions in the wild. Such may be the case in the attack at Lake Wenatchee, where officials say a hungry bear had emptied a garbage can just prior to the attack. Having generally lived in a rural setting most of my life, I have learned to keep a vigilant watch for wildlife. In North Central Washington, there are deer and coyotes, rattlesnakes and cougars. Wolf packs are popping up in our counties and moose are found in meadows and marshes. And of course, there are also black bears. Generally, most wildlife is afraid of humans, and attack only if they are starving or defending themselves or their young. Bear attacks are rare in our state – officials say there have only

been four recorded. One was fatal. The bears we have here aren’t meat eaters – they would much rather munch on berries, fruit, garbage and seeds. My daughter, Olivia, and I saw black bears near our Tunk Valley home on different occasions this summer. Although we tried to photograph them, we kept our distance. So did the bears. Watching them saunter across the sage and timber near our home was fascinating. It was an enjoyable aspect of life here in The Okanogan. Like most of you, I’ve never had a face-off with a bear, a cougar or other animal in the wild. And as long as you and I act responsibly while living and recreating in the woods, hopefully we never will.

From our readers Supports PUD board challenger

Print now can be seen from afar I’ve joined the ranks of trombone readers. You know who they are: Those 50-somethings whose eyes have matured and to the point they must hold books, newspapers and other printed matter at arm’s length in order to focus. I never thought I’d be in that club. My nearsightedness has gotten worse and worse over the years, ever since I began wearing glasses at age 14. Then the prednisoneDee Camp aided cataracts struck. I had a new lens put in my right eye at the end of July and was scheduled to have the other done a week later. Because of a plugged gland, that didn’t happen until the end of August. Since a patient can choose the type of lens that replaces the cataract-clouded one, I opted for far sight. Actually, custom lenses can be made to correct both near and far vision, but I wasn’t ready for the extra cost and fitting time. I can’t read close up anymore, but a pair of drugstore readers helps. I’ll eventually get some prescription glasses to correct astigmatism. But with 20/20 vision in one eye and nearly that in the other, I’m enjoying the leaves on trees, outlines of craters on the moon, focusing my camera manually and other views in our wide, beautiful world. I do find I automatically bring a printed page up close, then have to stretch my arm out far when I discover I can’t read it. If only there were some beautiful music generated by this trombone slide action.

Things seem to be getting out of hand at the Ferry County PUD. Evidently, we’re in store for another rate increase. As a past commissioner and past president of the trade association representing our PUD, Washington Public Utility Association, I’m quite familiar with the ins and outs of our PUD and public power in the Pacific Northwest. I’m quite perplexed, but not surprised, about the boards decision to impose the greatest single rate increase in our PUD history after a windfall revenue of hundred of thousands of dollars from Bonneville Power Administration. Last spring not many consumers showed up at the rate hearing to protest the rate increase. Why wouldn’t the commissioners raise the rates if nobody shows up? It has been fortunate that mining activity has re-established itself because that industry keeps residential rates down. I appreciate our hard working miners. But even miners have to pay their light bill. In the 1970s and ‘80s the mining and logging industries flourished, making surplus revenues the PUD banked. During the tough times of the ‘90s when mining and lumber production went away, it was fortunate to have those reserves and use them to maintain the status quo. The job of a commissioner is to represent the consumer and to challenge the management to keep costs down to the bare essentials. They won’t do it unless they hear from you. We need a responsible commissioner who will take the management to task and represent the consumer. I support a new commissioner. Gregg Caudell Republic

Paint job makes ideas seem new Could you possibly make any sense of this: A 1930s truck and ideas. A bright red, new paint job to make the ideas appear new, and

the same old highway and direction with a new candidate and new spin. Let’s see, a grain processing plant in Oroville, closer to Canadian products, grown by Canadians, transported by commissioner candidate and a past commissioner who both happen to be in the trucking business and, oh yes, the county’s farmers can catch up in five years. Or maybe revitalized closed sawmills that produce wood products for which there is no market with a depressed housing and construction market and recession clearly evident. Or take the attention away from the real issues facing the county, such as higher unemployment, high dropout rate and escalating drug problem by crying wolf and narrowly focusing our energy and attention on a less-than-countywide issue. Common sense tells us to elect a candidate who listens, is up on current events, has experience in tax evaluation issues within the county, performs as an active and involved member of the county Planning Commission, listens to all parties in the update of the comprehensive plan and, most of all, has an open mind. Common sense tells us not to give another candidate who will ignore the past and keep driving the new red truck into the ditch. Dennis Sanderson Tonasket

Stimulus money goes on the road

Consider what a candidate stands for

Paving in the valley. Just want to point out to all the north county folks – the stimulus package has arrived. Right outside our doors, the county is making a second run up and down the Aeneas Valley Road. Great. We needed some road repairs out here – we pay taxes, too. But I thought we were damn near into a second recession. Folks are out of work, homes lost, lives fatally disrupted. Where did the money come from? The stimulus payment evidently, to all the monies have been made available to the state and counties to stimulate our own economy, right here in Okanogan County. How many more motel rooms

A guarantee that was paid for in blood and suffering by our American veterans is being abused and manipulated by some who call themselves politicians, who divided us between red or blue. It saddens me to see some of the arrogance and deception that this county has sprinkled into its county candidates’ positions. The answer is, with deception, half truths and unsupported facts. Truth is not painted in white and lies in black. It is the gray area in deception that concerns me the most. During election and anytime when an elected official states a questionable or half-truth statement, voters should hold that person accountable to retract or

How many flags do we present? I would like to respond to a letter. Was there anything about the Stampede that the previous writer liked? The writer seems to be trying to spread hate and discontent with politics as well as ethnic groups. This is the U.S. We are obligated to present a flag for every ethnic group there. Recently, a Brewster group brought in several hundred Jamaicans. Would you want their flag presented, too? And the last time I looked, the Colvilles are U.S. citizens, so wouldn’t the Stars and Stripes represent them as well as other U.S. citizens? Norma McCartney Brewster

explain and show the facts. As I sit listening to the candidates express their promises and statements, it was not hard to see some had forked tongues and wore two faces. What ever happened to “Thou shall not bear false witnesses”? Those who are serving our county in truth and honesty remember, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper,” a promise that also required sacrifice. Veterans and voters, do your homework; just because it’s freedom of speech does not mean it is the truth. What does the candidate stand for, how have they served this community and helped it prosper, how long have they lived in this county and what is their past work history and ethics? These are the questions you need to ask yourself before you mark the box of candidate of choice. John and Bonnie Thompson Curlew

A Sept. 15 story about the Okanogan County Fair omitted the name of junior open home economics superintendent Craig Harper when reporting that the home ec barn won the state fair black and white award. In other fair coverage: • The name of grand champion crocheted doily winner Linda Loughrey was misspelled in results received from the fair. • The junior open best gladiolus winner was provided incorrectly. The winner was Elijah Antonelli. • Fairgrounds Superintendent Carl Christensen’s name was misspelled.

Horses are old, not abused By Dee Camp The Chronicle OKANOGAN – The sheriff’s office found three elderly horses at the fair were not abused, but instead were well groomed and fed. Two people contacted the sheriff’s office about the condition of the three horses at the Sept. 9-12 Okanogan County Fair. Sheriff Frank Rogers said deputy Michael Blake, fair officials and a veterinarian investigated. “The horses were fine,” he said. “They were not abused, just old. They were well groomed and fed.” Diana Sharp, Omak, said she is involved with animal rescue work. The three horses “were all underweight, especially one in particular; they were all in their 20s and 30s,” she said in an e-

mail to The Chronicle. “Two had deformities of the spine. The bottom line was none of these horses should have been competing in events at all.” One “in the worst condition” had been in five events and won ribbons, and another appeared depressed and in pain, she said. When they asked about the horses, she and a friend were surrounded by people both in the barn and later outside, she said. She talked to sheriff’s deputies and later to fair officials, but was dissatisfied with the outcome. Janet Burts, Okanogan, said she also contacted officials and was treated poorly, and also was threatened by the owner of one horse. “In my opinion, these horses need to retire and live out their lives,” she wrote in an e-mail. “There were no signs stating the age of these horses, nor explanation as to why their

bodies were so deconditioned.” Lona Fritts, who has been fair horse barn superintendent for about 30 years, said two women “invaded our barn and not only made a spectacle of themselves” but also showed they were interested only in causing “hate and discontent.” Blake and another person who was knowledgeable about horses were sent to investigate, Fritts said. “I then explained that all three horses were in very loving homes and yes, one was having difficulty with the weight of one horse. The ages of the horses were 27, 32 and 34,” she said. Fritts said she had spoken with the parents of the child showing one horse and directed them to a veterinarian who discussed a new feeding program. “The other horses were not under weight,” she said. “They were well fed.” The wither bone was high,

but that comes with age, she said. “These two women realized that the sheriff was not going to ticket the three 8-year-olds nor their parents, so they appeared at the barns and demanded from now on we make sure that we post the age of all horses on their stalls and not allow older horses to be used because, according to them, using older horses was abuse,” Fritts said. She said the incident led to children and parents becoming upset and crying. “They wanted these horses to be taken home and all the parents written up (over the) complaints,” she said. “They both wanted to ruin an otherwise wonderful fair. They were at the barns for over an hour.” Fritts said she is more than willing to take people to task about poor treatment of horses, if it exists.

Medications can be turned in Take-Back Day offers way to get rid of unwanted items By Brenda Starkey The Chronicle OKANOGAN – Area residents can safely get rid of unwanted, unused or expired prescription or over-thecounter medications during National Take-Back Day on Saturday, Sept. 25. The Ferry County and Okanogan County Sheriff’s offices along with Colville Tribal Police will participate by

providing four free and anonymous, no-questionsasked Take-Back sites. Only prescription and OTC tablets and capsules will be accepted. Intravenous solutions, injectable drugs and needles will not, nor will illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamines. The Take-Back initiative will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, 123 N. Fifth Ave., Okanogan; the Ferry County Jail, 175 N. Jefferson St., Republic; Inchelium Longhouse, southwest corner of Inchelium and Community

Center Loop, and the Keller Community Center, 11669 S. Highway 21. Homes are safer if unwanted medications are disposed of, according to the Washington Poison Center. Prescription drug abuse is a serious and growing problem, especially from opiate pain relievers, the center said. Drug overdoses have surpassed car accidents as the leading cause of accidental deaths in Washington. Misused prescription drugs are the illicit drugs of choice among teens. For the first time among teens, there are as many new abusers of prescription

drugs as marijuana abusers, the center said. The Take-Back program will help protect children and the elderly from the most common cause of accidents, the center’s Web site said. Turning in drugs can help prevent theft and other misuse, and proper disposal also helps protect the environment since flushing them endangers local waters and aquatic life, according to the center. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is holding its first-ever nationwide TakeBack initiative with hopes that it will prevent increased pill abuse and theft.

Some dirt bikes no longer legal By Sheila Corson The Chronicle OLYMPIA – Certain dirt bike owners statewide have learned that their bikes are no longer legal on public roadways because of a change in state Department of Licensing policies. Although there are 800 owners statewide, only six live in Okanogan County. Licensing spokesman Tony Sermonti said some dirt bikes, designated for off-road use only, had been licensed in other states and the license transferred to Washington. Or, owners upgraded their bikes and used that loophole to make the bikes street legal. According to legal

requirements, though, there is no way to make an off-roadonly vehicle street legal short of rebuilding the bike entirely, Sermonti said. Because of that, licenses in the category were revoked after Sept. 1 and one-year off-road permits were issued free. That way, there is no cost to owners because of the change. Some business owners are concerned. Xtreme Powersports, Okanogan, one of the two sellers in the county – Omak Honda is the other seller – expects to lose business over the issue. Salesman and mechanic Chad Stansbury said he has researched the issue deeply and expects to lose at

least a dozen sales in the next year because people are now “gun shy.” Most of the affected models are in the DTM line, Stansbury said. The only bike Xtreme carries that can be licensed now is a Beta brand, a somewhat rare import. The state says the issue is all about public safety and that law enforcement has expressed concern statewide. Stansbury said he doesn’t buy that – he said the bikes are also on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s black list for not meeting emissions regulations. Only a few bikes are made that meet that certification and are street legal, and the closest

dealer is in Wenatchee, Stansbury said. Xtreme hopes to add the bike to its line. Stansbury said the connectivity between trails will be broken by the change in laws, and that could hurt the trail system and bikers. He encouraged people to get involved in local clubs to see if this can be changed. “Be active, join clubs,” Stansbury said. “It’s the only thing we can do.” Calls to Omak Honda were not returned, as the owner has been gone. North Central ATV Club spokesman Tim Weller said several club members have bikes, but he had not heard of any issues so far.

PUD wants to expand broadband By Sheila Corson The Chronicle OKANOGAN – The Okanogan County Public Utility District approved documents to borrow $3,677,855 in conjunction with a $5,501,782 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Services program. The money will go toward expanding broadband services in underserved county areas, including over the Loup, rural Oroville and Tonasket and Conconully areas, Telecommunications Manager Ron Gadeberg reported at a Sept. 7 meeting.

The PUD board heard that the regular parameters of the loan could not apply to the utility because the loan program required a guarantee that would be illegal for the PUD to meet. Attorney Mick Howe said he was working out details with program directors to find an alternative. The PUD had to approve the program by Friday, Sept. 10, in order to be eligible for the award. Staff have not yet heard back on approval of an alternative loan guarantee from RUS, General Manager John Grubich said. In other business, the board:

Court asked to return water district to tribe By Al Camp The Chronicle OKANOGAN – A hearing is set for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, in Okanogan County Superior Court to hear a petition for the return of a water district to the Colville Confederated Tribes. Okanogan County Commissioners Mary Lou Peterson, Don “Bud” Hover and Andrew Lampe filed a petition Sept. 1 for dissolution of a local improvement district-water and for transfer of assets to the tribes. The district is located in southeast corner of county and is wholly within exterior boundaries of the tribe, said the petition filed by county Prosecutor Karl Sloan. The county and tribe agreed in January 1995 to cooperate and coordinate creating a safe and reliable potable water supply for residents of Seaton’s Grove and the Koontzville area in exchange for certain grants of easements and rights of way to the county, the petition said. The county, as lead agency, agreed to apply for funding

sources for the project, create a local improvement district to manage repayment of loans and undertake construction of the system and provide for operation and maintenance of the system, court records said. A memorandum of understanding allowed for loan repayment, dissolving district and ownership of the system being transferred to the tribes for operation and maintenance as a community water system in conjunction with other systems established on the reservation. The petition said the MOU had been fulfilled.

• Congratulated staff for two regulatory compliance services awards. One recognized a testing program for all 3,300 transformers and the other for replacing transformers out of

compliance. • Thanked employee Allen Allie for five years as a system engineer. He has been responsible for much of the mapping and GPS in vehicles.

Bridgeport will rebid shop project By Cheryl Schweizer Chronicle correspondent BRIDGEPORT — School district officials will revise the high school shop project and advertise for bids a second time. Initial bids, opened Sept. 16, exceeded the project’s budget. All eight bids were $1.3 million to $1.4 million, about $200,000-$400,000 over budget, Superintendent Scott Sattler said. The project manager and architect contacted some of the contractors to ask why the bids came in high, and were told the electrical and mechanical (heating-cooling and ventilation) systems made up about half the cost, Sattler said. As a result, the architects will review and revise the systems if necessary, and possibly redesign the building’s

roofline. The goal is to send the project back out for bid as soon as possible, Sattler said. Construction will be delayed, with the “potential that we’re not even going to break ground until spring,” he said. District officials had planned to have the building’s exterior shell up before winter, with completion in early spring. Even if construction is delayed, the building will be completed before the start of the 2011-12 school year. District voters passed a bond issue for the project in 2009. The district qualified for state construction money, which wasn’t available until July 2010. The project manager will attend the Sept. 27 Bridgeport School Board meeting to explain the next steps, Sattler said.

Fall burning begins in national forest

Burglars cut locks

WINTHROP — The U.S. Forest Service began its fall burning program last week with a 128-acre burn between Fawn Creek and Rendezvous Pass. “The burn went well despite overcast skies during the burn and rain clouds moving in on us late in the day,” Fire and Fuels spokeswoman Meg Trebon said. The Methow Valley Ranger District plans several other burns in the Twisp River, Leecher Mountain or McFarland Creek vicinities during the next couple weeks. In the Tonasket Ranger District, burning is planned in the Mount Hull, Schalow Mountain, Little Granite Mountain and Tunk Mountain areas. Thinning piles will be burned near Lost Lake, Bonaparte, Mount Hull and Little Granite Mountain. The prescribed fire season continues through November as conditions and weather permit, Tonasket Ranger District spokeswoman Shannon O’Brien said. Forest officials said some of the best burning conditions occur during hunting season, so it’s important for hunters and others to know if burns are set for the areas they plan to use. The state Department of Natural Resources regulates smoke management and approval to burn.

Twisp Car Seat Round Up under way TWISP — The second annual Car Seat Round Up, sponsored by Okanogan County Safe Kids and the Methow Valley Child Passenger Safety Team, will be this week. Okanogan County Public Health will accept expired seats through Sept. 25. The Methow Valley Child Passenger Safety Team will be at Hank’s Market, 420 E. Methow Valley Highway, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The seats will be disassembled and recycled. Organizers said most car seats have an expiration date on the label, which can be found on the side or bottom of the seat. If there is no date, a life expectancy often can be found on the owner’s manual or the rule of thumb is six years from the date of manufacture, a team announcement said. “Car seats are made of plastics and webbing of nylon,” the team said. “Consider what happens to a plastic toy if it is left outside for some time. The plastic becomes brittle and can develop cracks when stressed. Car seats are subjected to extreme heat, extreme cold and UV rays while sitting in your vehicle, so the plastics and nylon eventually react just like that toy left in the sun.”

Sheriff investigates cattle butchering OROVILLE – Sheriff’s deputies are investigating two reports in the past couple weeks of cattle that were butchered and parts of the animals left to rot. In the first incident, a couple weeks ago, a rancher found a cow butchered off Forest Service Road 3525 southeast of town. The hooves and entrails were found. “At this time, they don’t know if it was a heifer or a steer calf,” Sheriff Frank Rogers said. In the second case, on Similkameen Road, Oroville, a calf was butchered and the meat taken. Entrails were left. Rogers said he’s not sure whether the two cases are related. The animals are valued at $760-$1,100 each, he said.

By Cheryl Schweizer Chronicle correspondent BRIDGEPORT — Burglars cut locks in three locations and made off with a couple of household appliances and some frozen food sometime Sept. 11-12. Burglars cut the lock off a unit at KZ Mini Storage, at the intersection of Douglas Avenue and 12th Street, said Douglas County Undersheriff Don Culp. The burglary was discovered Sept. 12. The victims reported nothing missing.

Civil Air Patrol members Lana Townsend (front) and Danielle Corson bring in flags for the Tea Party Patriots' Constitution eve service Sept. 16 in Civic League Park.

Constitution celebrated By Dee Camp The Chronicle OMAK — The U.S. Constitution was celebrated during a Tea Party Patriots gathering Sept. 16 in Civic League Park. About 50 people gathered for the service, which included a flag ceremony by the Civil Air Patrol, patriotic readings and music. The service marked the Sept. 17, 1774, signing of the U.S. Constitution. After presentation of the U.S. and state flags, the Rev. Bob Baggett opened the ceremony with a prayer “that the country would get back to God.” His remarks were cut short when the wireless microphone set up for the ceremony activated his defibrillator. He

moved aside in pain, then was led away from the ceremony. Marian McClanahan, one of the ceremony’s organizers, later said Baggett was OK. Dan Isaac, dressed in a fringed pioneer-style shirt and three-cornered hat, read from the Federalist Papers and other documents. He urged people to exercise their “sacred duty” to vote Nov. 2 and “restore our nation to its original intent.” After the ceremony, a group met to study the Constitution through the book “5,000 Year Leap.” Copies of the book were for sale. The Civil Air Patrol color guard, which left before the study session, consisted of Cadet Senior Master Sgt. Lana Townsend, and Cadet Airmen Danielle Corson, Sierra Fain and Courtney Everett.

PUD funds electricity curriculum BRIDGEPORT — Douglas County Public Utility District commissioners Sept. 13 agreed to fund an electrical information curriculum for elementary students. Every kindergarten through fifth-grade student in the county will get instruction on electrical generation, electric distribution, conservation, safety and wise use of water resources, a PUD announcement said. North Central Educational Service District requested $19,696.22 for the 2010-20011 school year program. The program began in 1988.

On Monday, two more break-ins were reported, at Bridgeport High School and the Bridgeport Swimming Pool. Burglars removed the padlock on the pool house and stole a microwave, a small refrigerator, a fan and an empty cash box, Culp said. The items were valued at about $200. At the high school they cut the lock off an outside refrigerator and stole about $52 in frozen food. The break-ins are under investigation, Culp said.

By Brenda Starkey The Chronicle TONASKET — North Valley Hospital will open its new South Addition today, Sept. 22, with a ceremony beginning at 3 p.m. Speakers for the grand opening will include Dr. David Stangland, Dr. Walter Henze, Marianne Williams and Karen Schimpf.

A new room awaits a new patient in North Valley Hospital’s addition. treatment room and two holding rooms where patients can remain for up to 48 hours without being admitted to the hospital, Support Services Director John Byrd said. He gives tours of the new facility. He said the hospital will try to keep the regular patient rooms private. The new addition connects to the old building at the

reception and admitting area Since the average hospital census is between five and eight patients, most should get private rooms. But the rooms are designed to accommodate two patients each, and extra beds will be available, he said. Hospital departments will move into the new addition Monday, Sept. 27. The emergency room will be

the first to move, beginning at 3 a.m. - traditionally the slowest time for that department, Boyd said. Shelves were being stocked with supplies last week to hasten the transition. Everyone should be moved by the end of the day, he said. Construction was funded by a $11 million bond issue approved in 2007.

Pear, apple harvest looks good, market strong By Sheila Corson The Chronicle OKANOGAN – The overall pear and apple harvest appears down, but that could mean good prices for this year’s crop. So far, Bartlett pears are off the trees and looking good, Washington Growers Clearing House Assistant Manager Dan Kelly said. Much of the harvest is in too early a stage to tell, but so far there doesn’t seem to be a lot of difference from last year. At Gold Digger in Oroville, Gala and Honeycrisp apples are flowing in alongside Bosc and Anjou pears. Next will be Golden Delicious, then Red Delicious, Braeburns, Cameos, Fujis and finally Granny Smiths, spokesmen said. The wet, cool spring weather has meant smaller produce size, but the fruit is clean and in good shape and mostly unaffected by spring hailstorms, workers at Gold Digger reported.

Although Kelly said labor doesn’t seem to be much of an issue, Gold Digger spokesmen said some local growers are finding labor a bit short because the California grape harvest is still under way. North of Tonasket, grower Geoff Thornton said he is picking short on pears and Galas, which he believes is mostly because of poor pollination. Windstorms also knocked some pears off the trees early. “There are always some surprises,” Thornton said. The later apples look better, though, Thornton said. Help with the harvest has been sufficient, although not abundant, he added. The market is holding strong at a pretty decent level – “upper middle class” – so that makes him optimistic, he said. “I’m hoping for some pleasant surprises,” Thornton added. “The harvest is going well,”

McDonald’s closed for months OMAK – After a grease fire Sept. 9, McDonald’s will be closed for two to three months. McDonald’s corporate spokeswoman Joni Myers said the fire is still under investigation, so few details are being released. Cleanup and the investigation are under way. Costs of the damage are still unknown, Myers said. Employees have been temporarily relocated to other restaurants while McDonald’s is under construction, Myers said.

Gold Digger Apples

A forklift unloads boxes of apples at Gold Digger in Oroville. said Roy Hamilton at Shaw’s Fruit and Produce in Belvedere. Since Shaw’s doesn’t pick for the warehouse and sells directly from its fruit stand, some problems for other growers are not problems for Shaw’s. Fruit size has been small except for Honeycrisps. Peaches are nearly off the trees with a good volume despite wind knocking many of them on the ground, Hamilton said.

Sunny Okanogan Angus Ranch, Omak, owns one listed bull. Double R Ranch LLC, Loomis, has five bulls listed. The report, issued in spring and fall, features the latest performance information available on 5,871 sires. The association is based in St. Joseph, Mo.

The early spring with cool, rainy weather meant trees bloomed 10 days early but harvest has run 10 days late, Hamilton said. Hail hit the apple crop only slightly at Shaw’s, but not bad enough to cause too many problems, he said.

OKANOGAN — The Okanogan County Public Utility District approved issuing $32.46 million in revenue bonds during a special Seattle meeting on Sept. 14. The bonds will finance some capital projects, such as the Pateros-to-Twisp transmission line, and refund some other outstanding bonds. The district currently has more than $14 million in revenue bonds outstanding, and recently approved a $3.7 million loan from Rural Utilities Services for broadband

expansion. The two bonds have interest rates ranging from 1.1 percent to 6 percent over the life of the bond, with a payback of all bonds by 2040. Commissioners met with Seattle Northwest Securities staff, who explained how bonds are priced and updated them on market activity. Bond pricing was set that morning. Commissioners also met with bond counsel from Foster Pepper and reviewed and approved the 45-page resolution in the afternoon, General Manager John Grubich said.

Dog Bite (Animal Bite) information Prevention and Reporting Preventing Bites In General • Always approach a dog from the front, and make sure it sees you and has a chance to smell you before you try to pet it. Any dog may snap or bite when it is startled, and a dog may not hear you approach from behind. • NEVER attempt to pet a wild animal of any kind. No matter how cute they are, they are still wild animals and may be expected to bite. Supervise children around wildlife and teach them that even cute animals like marmots and rabbits will bite if they try to pet them • The following tips for kids, parents, and dog owners can be used to help prevent dog bites. Teach Your Kids • Dogs don't like hugs and kisses - Kids shouldn't hug or kiss a dog on the face. Hugging o the family dog or face-to-face contact are common causes of bites to the face. Instead, teach kids to scratch the dog on the chest or the side of the neck. • "Be a tree" if a strange dog approaches - Teach kids to stand still, like a tree. Trees are boring and the dog will eventually go away. This works for strange dogs and anytime the family dog gets too frisky or becomes aggressive. • Never tease a dog - And don't disturb a dog that's sleeping, eating, or protecting o something. What Parents Can Do • Supervise - Don't assume your dog is good with kids. If a toddler is allowed to interact with your dog, you should have your hands on the dog too. Even if your dog is great with kids and has never bitten - why take a chance? • Train the dog - Take your dog to obedience classes where positive-reinforcement is used. Never pin, shake, choke, hold the dog down, or roll the dog over to teach it

a lesson. Dogs treated this way are likely to turn their aggression on weaker family members. Involve older children in training the family dog while supervising. Don't allow children to punish the dog. Condition the dog to enjoy the presence and actions of children using positive experiences. What Dog Owners Can Do • Spay or neuter your dog - Neutered pets are calmer, healthier, and less likely to be o aggressive. • Condition your dog for the world - Give your puppy lots of new positive experiences. • Supervise your dog - Supervise your dog at all times around children. Do not allow children to hug and kiss the dog. If visiting children are bothering your dog, put the dog away or send the children home. For more information see CDC Dog Bite Prevention at and Doggone Safe's Web site at

If you are bitten and When to call OCPH • If the bite is minor but still breaks the skin, disinfect the site right away and perform appropriate wound care like bandaging. Make sure your tetanus shots are up to date. If the bite wound is serious enough to require medical attention (like a deep gash that may need stitches, or a gash to the face) seek medical attention as soon as possible. • The chief concern with bites from domestic animals or wild animals is the possibility of rabies. If you receive a bite from a dog, cat, other pet or wild animal that breaks the skin, please call OCPH at 422-7140 to report the incident. Your call will help us advise you on proper treatment and determine what follow-up action is needed, including monitoring of a dog or cat, testing of a wild animal and recommendations on whether to get rabies vaccination. If you seek medical attention for an animal bite, the health care provider or hospital staff will send us a report; however, your call will help us gather more detailed information about the incident and initiate follow-up action sooner.

Water sampling irregularities investigated at Buckhorn mine plant Sheila Corson The Chronicle REPUBLIC — The Kettle River-Buckhorn Mine reported compliance sampling irregularities at its water treatment plant during a period in 2009. The state Department of Ecology was notified July 29 after internal and third-party inquiries showed irregularities.

From mid-May through early August 2009, there were instances in which proper compliance sampling practices were not followed, a Kinross Gold announcement said. Inaccurate test results related to effluent were reported. Ammonia, zinc, arsenic and total dissolved solids were elevated, occasionally in excess of permit levels. The situation first came to

the company’s attention when a former employee made allegations of irregularities in the plant, Buckhorn’s Vice President and General Manager Doug Jones said. The company hired a lawyer to investigate the situation, and late this summer, his report showed the irregularities. Kinross immediately notified the state, which has not told the company of any fines at

Appropriate disciplinary actions have been undertaken, the announcement said. “These irregularities are totally unacceptable to the company and we have taken decisive action to address them,” Jones said. Joye Redfield-Wilder at Ecology’s Yakima office said the department is pleased with the

this time, Jones said. Although the samples at the plant itself were not usual, there was nothing dangerous. The company added a reverse osmosis unit and made supervisory, procedural and technical improvements at the water treatment plant so that no problems have been reported since August 2009. Kinross also will institute a new compliance training

company’s efforts. She said any enforcement actions are still unknown at this point, as the department and the company are working together on compliance upgrades. She said Ecology also appreciates that Buckhorn took the matter seriously and reported it. “The good news is they’re on top of it,” Redfield-Wilder said.

English teacher joins WVC-O


By Sheila Corson The Chronicle

Class anxiety usual, beatable

OMAK – Wenatchee Valley College at Omak has a new English professor, Dr. Peter Donahue. Although he grew up in New Jersey, Donahue said he fell in love with the Northwest when he came to Washington at 16 years Donahue old. He’s “been calling it home” ever since. He lately was a professor in Birmingham, Ala., when he saw the advertisement in The Chronicle of Higher Education for an English professor in Omak. He said he had been keeping an eye open for Northwest jobs and applied. Donahue, 50, was offered the job in August. “It didn’t take me 24 hours to accept,” he said. He moved to Winthrop with his wife of 22 years, Susan, Sept. 12. He started classes on Monday, Sept. 20. In addition to teaching writing, Donahue enjoys writing himself. He has published historical novels, including one just this past summer. He is working on three novellas, all set on the

Get staff support, be sure to smile Webster's dictionary defines anxiety as: “…worry as to a future or unknown thing.” Psychologists and psychiatrists use the term “anxiety disorder” which refers to a fear of specific things or places. It comes by many other names: apprehension, or extreme uneasiness. I say simply: scary! First day of class anxiety is common, and many of the new and returning students I have spoken with often experience this feeling. I know I certainly do! Believe me, many of us fall into this same emotional situation; fretting about unknown expectations and new people, grades and homework. After seven quarters I still find myself experiencing bad dreams caused by my own anxiety. We all want to do well, and the importance of doing well weighs heavily on anyone. However, the age-old saying “that old college try” means trying, expanding our comfort zones and raising our comfort levels. Until we try, how can any student face that anxiety, let alone overcome it? Reaching out for comfort and support can help ease these feelings, and at least two of the staff at WVC-Omak – Vicki Turner and Lori Jones – can help with these feelings. Lori Jones actually teaches a class entitled “Personal Wellness” that focuses on stress management and relaxation techniques, among other things. With instructors and staff such as these two, I think managing the anxiety of college participation is achievable. So let’s give it the “old college try,” and take the first step to resolving that anxiety. And smile! A smile goes a long way to disarming not only those around us, but in helping ourselves as well. Your smile might find a smile in return, and that can make it all seem worth it.

” Olympic Peninsula. One day, Donahue said he hopes to write a novel based from Okanogan County. He also writes the column, Retro Reviews, for Columbia magazine, researching historical authors in the Northwest. Whatever genre his students are interested in, Donahue said he wants to open dialogue to help them reach their goals. He seeks to “facilitate opportunities for students to pursue their passion for writing.” Susan Donahue, a lawyer, hopes to open a practice locally. Their two grown children live in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Oakland, Calif. Aside from his writing, Donahue said: “I can’t wait to do the fishing, the skiing and the hiking” in the area.

Subway Locks OMAK — A cancer survivor wants to give back to her community by opening the Omak Subway parking lot to Locks of Love and other cancerrelated benefits Oct. 2. Subway manager Rhonda Pock said she beat ovarian cancer last year, going through five surgeries and coming back

as manager in April. She said losing her hair was horrible, and when she would think about children going through that, she decided she wanted to do something. Anyone donating their hair to Locks of Love from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 2 will get a free 6inch sub from Subway and support children fighting cancer, Pock said. Other booths will be set up by local groups, such as Bouncin’ For Boobies, The Support Center and others. She is hoping to bring the Bloodmobile in as well. Those wanting to donate to Locks of Love can bring at least 10 inches of hair to the event or get it cut there, Pock said. Hair can be colored or permed, but not bleached because of a chemical reaction in the manufacturing process. Dreadlocks, wigs, falls, extensions or synthetic hair will not be accepted. “I’m looking for people with long hair,” Pock said when asked if she needed any help. And they should bring their friends with long hair. A hair stylist will be on hand to cut and trim.

The detention facility's education program is operated by Okanogan School District. The goal is to help youth who are faced with challenges achieve educational goals so they have a better opportunity to become successful when released, Detention Manager Dennis T. Rabidou said. Students who have completed the GED certificate are positioned to continue their education in community college and certain state universities, he said. Okanogan Superintendent Richard Johnson presented the certificates and spoke about their achievement. The GED program started when a student spoke with the detention school teachers Carla McFadden and Roy Johnson about his desire to earn a GED. After being informed he could study for the GED, but could take the test only after being released, the student said that if he didn't earn it there, he never would. Rabidou began gathering information and making contacts that eventually led to the start of a GED program. Two other students are working toward the certificate. “Our success is measured by how well you make it on the outside,� Rabidou said during the ceremony. “While a GED may not guarantee success, it does guarantee a much better chance of turning your life around and being productive instead of destructive.�

In Remembrance In Memory of Kenneth K. Knapp, 78 Oct. 8, 1930 — Sept. 22, 2009 We can’t believe you’ve been gone nearly a year, our hearts grow heavy as the date draws near. We miss you so much that it’s hard to breathe, But the pain gets less the longer we grieve. Remembering you can now make us smile, Your personality, your love, and your own special style. We know that you’re watching as we carry on, And all that you taught us is still here and not gone.

So we’ll keep the lessons and love that you gave,

And feel your presence telling us to be brave. But please forgive us our trials and mistakes, Cause you know we learn from each one we make. We’ll keep on trying to live all that you taught, And be happy and healthy knowing that’s what you sought. We know we will see you when it is our time, You’ll be waiting with arms open — it will be sublime! We love and miss you so much. Your loving family, Gerri, Dan, Bo, Vicki, Deena, and all of their families.

In the Keystone Orchards area above Riverside, Kris Vigoren had been observing a rainbow, which she described as the calm before the storm. Suddenly a wall of mud came over the hill carrying debris, including someone’s cooler. She was left with a big mess to clean up. There is a hole at the base of her driveway and an orchard flooded with mud halfway up the tree trunks, Vigoren said. Water also came into her kitchen, leaving a layer of mud to be cleaned. A neighbor had guests who were in the area for a funeral, and they all were stranded in town when the fast-moving torrents made their driveway impassable. By about noon Monday, most of those who reported themselves landlocked from their homes had single-lane access and egress, Miller said. Only one at the end of Hardy Road still could not be reached on Monday. McLaughlin Canyon Road was closed Monday and will remain closed for an

Testing from A1 said they weren’t totally surprised by their districts’ shortfalls. “We will need to address” the shortfalls, Tonasket Superintendent Paul Turner said. “We will look at deficiencies, collect data and ask, ‘How can we do better?’” Tonasket middle school students met AYP in both areas, while elementary and high school students met proficiency in reading but not math. Turner said the district has shifted its emphasis from having reading specialists work with under-achieving students to having a reading coach work with teachers to improve instruction for all students. A Readiness to Intervention program will help identify students’ specific deficits in certain areas so teachers will know exactly what areas need work. “Yes, we failed AYP, but are we improving overall?” Turner said. “The data shows improvement.” In Okanogan, student test results have landed the district on the list of those needing improvement under the No Child Left Behind Act. Virginia Grainger Elementary is at step 1, meaning it did not meet annual yearly progress goals in the same areas of math and reading for two consecutive years, Curriculum and Assessment Director Denise Varner said. Okanogan Middle School and the high school are at step 3, meaning they did not meet AYP in the same areas of math for five consecutive years. In all cases, parents will be notified. At the elementary and middle schools, 10 percent of federal Title I funds must be dedicated to professional development, she said. At the middle school, tutoring must be offered to students. The high school’s improvement plan must be revised. As long as scores are within five points, one way or the other, of statewide scores and scores are improving or staying fairly level, Varner said she’s not too concerned. But when they take a plunge, as several did for the 2009-10 testing year, that’s a concern. She said each year brings a new test and a new group of students, so it’s helpful to track a group of students from grade to grade. “It’s a moving target,” Superintendent Richard Johnson said. “Some kids who do badly on the third grade test do well at fourth grade, but they’ve drug down the third grade scores. Kids learn at different rates.” The district met AYP in reading at all three levels, but didn’t meet proficiency in math. Republic elementary students met AYP in both areas, and the district’s middle school and high school students met the reading standard. The state did not report high school math results because the number of students taking the

Miller said during the work Monday, crews discovered a vehicle in the ditch. Neighbors said a family of three had been caught in the storm, which carried the car into the ditch, smashing in the front end. Another neighbor transported the family out. At least one person was said to be injured in the wreck, Miller said, but no one has reported it to police yet. Major rebuilding will be needed on McLaughlin and Hardy roads, so crews are not yet sure how long the repair will take, Miller said. Other roads damaged were the Conconully Highway, Limebelt Road, Crumbacher Road, Frontage Road, Chewiliken Road, Talkire Road and county Highway 7, officials said. Stanley said all roads would be passable by Monday evening, and that officials hoped to get McLaughlin Canyon and Hardy roads open to residents soon. It will be a week or two before the roads are really fixed, he said. test was small and doing so might identify individual students’ scores. “We’re very happy we met AYP at the elementary level,” secondary Principal Shawn Anderson said. “We purchased some new curriculum and it paid off.” The high school also has done well, and in 2009 the school won a state achievement award for its reading scores. “Math has been a challenge, as it has been across the state,” Anderson said. District officials have met with parents and are developing a math plan. “We need to look at what we’re doing,” he said. “It’s not any one teacher, it is a system problem.” Keller Superintendent Dave Iverson also heads a district with numbers of students too small to report. According to the state, overall AYP was met in the district, though some subgroups of students did not. “A few met (standard), but the majority didn’t,” Iverson said. “Poverty level is an indicator.” He said the district has combined grade level classrooms, high poverty and spotty attendance by some students, all of which create challenges. Brewster students didn’t meet AYP in either area at any level. “We were disappointed in our scores,” Superintendent Eric Driessen said. “We felt like

we have been working very hard to improve student learning. My personal feeling is that it is very difficult to hit the mark on a moving target.” Brewster uses several other standardized tests to measure student achievement, but “since the state testing is the determining factor for AYP, we are faced with a significant challenge,” he said. The staff is working on plans to improve student learning and is replacing curriculum materials. The district received a $100,000 grant to re-evaluate its effectiveness in reading and math. It’s also sharing a grant with Pateros and Bridgeport schools for an after-school program. “We realize we have work to do, but we are confident that we can make the necessary improvements that will improve student learning,” Driessen said. Bridgeport elementary and middle school students didn’t meet AYP in either reading or math. High school students met proficiency in reading but not math. “Although our district did not meet proficiency in several areas, we are actively making changes to bolster test scores for overall school improvement,” Superintendent Scott Sattler said. The district is working on improvement plans for the elementary and middle school for curriculum alignment, academic coaches and other areas.

Curlew met proficiency in reading, but not math at the elementary level, and in both areas for the middle school. High school results were not reported because of small numbers. “We are in the process of appealing the AYP status,” Superintendent Steve McCullough said. “Even if we fail in the appeal, we will not be in a situation that requires corrective action.” The district had higherthan-normal absences on test days, which skewed the results. He said it’s ironic that in 2009 the district won an award for its extended graduation rate but now doesn’t meet AYP partially because of its on-time graduation rate. “To me, this shows that while some of our kids struggle with making it through in four years, we are very good at helping them matriculate eventually,” he said. “In general, we spend a lot more time looking at individual student scores than at the percentage that pass or not,” he said. He said some of the math scores were surprising, so the district asked to look at individual tests but was told by the state that it can’t see individual tests. Analysis of scores on another standardized test, the Measure of Academic Progress, shows strong individual student growth in math last year, but the district hasn’t determined

why so many didn’t meet standard on the state tests, McCullough said. The district is adopting a new math curriculum. Grand Coulee Dam students did not meet AYP in either area at any level. “All of our buildings are at some level of AYP improvement,” Superintendent Dennis Carlson said. “We are developing improvement plans and focusing on improving math and reading scores.” New math curriculum has been adopted and staff training sessions are planned, he said. Inchelium students did not meet AYP in reading or math at the elementary and middle school levels. High school results were not reported by the state because of the small number of students. Nespelem students did not meet AYP in reading or math at the elementary and middle school levels. The district does not have a high school. Omak met AYP in reading at the middle school and high school. Its elementary students did not meet AYP in either area. Middle school and high school students didn’t meet proficiency in math. Oroville elementary students met AYP in both areas. District middle and high school students met proficiency in reading but not in math. Some districts’ administrators did not respond to a Chronicle request for comment on their scores.

Grizzly Mountain Express nabs Pendleton crown Tribal members dominate teams By Al Camp The Chronicle PENDLETON, Ore. – The Grizzly Mountain Express of Omak took first place in the Indian Relay race Sept. 15-18 at the 100th Pendleton Round-up. The team included jockey Oliver Pakootas, mugger Winfred Pakootas and headers Kerry Carden and Jonathan Abrahamson.

Colville Confederated Tribes members were on all four of the championship teams, where jockeys ride bareback and exchange horses twice. Initially, there were 12 teams that competed in three heats Wednesday and O. Pakootas Thursday. Grizzly Mountain Express used smooth

horse exchanges all week to post the fastest times. The fastest four teams from the heats earned berths into the championship Saturday, won by Grizzly Mountain Express. Non-finalist teams competed in a consolation race Friday. Grizzly Mountain Express horses included Chief, owned by Abrahamson, along with Mel and Money, both owned by Carden. The team received Pendleton leather travel bag, a limited-edition Pendleton

blanket commemorating the centennial, Pendleton coats and buckles. A Montana team’s trailer broke down, so the owner opted to allow Country Pakootas to take his slot as jockey. The owner was a holder for Pakootas. Chipping in a horse were George Marchand, whose team also made the finals with Loren Marchand riding, and Carden’s Grizzly Mountain Express. Also on Pakootas team were tribal members J.W. Pakootas and Rocky Timentwa.

Football spaghetti benefits a Bulldog Karissa Carlson, Pateros, is back on the fast track. Literally. Carlson is in an internship program at Evergreen College, where she is a junior. She is working 40 hours a week as the school photographer’s assistant. So it was understandable when she opted to leave the track team in the spring of 2009. Carlson, whose brother and sister broke records in distance running while in Carlson college, decided an eight month layoff was enough. She’s started getting back in shape last spring where she ran two track meets while fighting shin splints. By summer, she was running as much as 110 miles a week to get in shape for cross country this fall. Carlson’s father, Mike, ran cross country and track at Pacific Lutheran University. Her brother, Nate, and sister, Krinda, both set records at Saint Martin’s University. Her sister ran 1,500 meters in 4:44, a school record. Her brother ran the 1,500 in 3:50, also a school record, The Olympian reported. Karissa holds her school’s record in the 1,500 with a time of 5:00. She also has her sights on school records in the 800 and 3,000 meters in track next spring. In December, she’ll run her first marathon in Hawaii with her brother and sister. As a freshman, Carlson was the third-best runner on the cross-country team that just missed going to nationals for the first time in school history. ◆◆◆◆◆ A spaghetti dinner to benefit Dori Greenaway will be from 57:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, in the Okanogan High School cafeteria before the Bulldogs Greenaway take on Lake Roosevelt in football. Greenaway, a 2002 Okanogan graduate, was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer June 23. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy and had her lymph nodes removed July 14. Greenaway, 26, Tacoma, currently is undergoing an aggressive regiment of chemotherapy. The booster club’s tailgate party was canceled. “I want everyone to know that we would be doing one, but wanted to support Dori Greenaway,” tailgate organizer Lana Judd said. “My husband, Scott, and I are so thankful and grateful for all the support we are receiving,” Greenaway said. “The fundraising has been amazing and is helping to alleviate some stress so I can focus on my health.” “I was hoping to get to come home to Okanogan for the dinner but with flu season quickly approaching I will have to run it by my oncologist first to see if my immune system will be up to it,” she said. Denise Varner is organizing the dinner that will help pay for Greenaway’s medical bills.

Omak snuffs ’Dogs Pioneers deploy defense to stop Okanogan passing By Al Camp The Chronicle OMAK – The Omak High School football team walloped Okanogan 34-14 in a nonleague game Sept. 17. The Pioneers speed proved an eye-opener for the Bulldogs, who outscored opponents 87-10 in two easy games prior to the first of two showdowns between the rivals. Omak’s defensive alignment also frustrated Okanogan. “I think what they really want to do was throw the ball,” Omak coach Nick Sackman said. “If they lined up in Iformation all night, obviously we would have made some changes.” Instead, Okanogan often used split receivers and a single back. Omak’s defense limited Okanogan quarterback Ryan Price to 5-of-16 passing in the first half, 11-for-31 in the game with two interceptions and 110 yards. “I figured they would do it,” Okanogan coach Denny Neely said of Omak flooding the secondary. “We just did not play well.” Okanogan receivers dropped seven passes. Omak quarterback Brenden Aguilar completed 7-of-9 passes all in the first half for 137 yards and a touchdown. The two incomplete passes were dropped, Sackman said. “He put the ball on the money all night long,” Sackman said. Omak could be even better when the teams meet again in a

Omak quickly drove to its first score capped with a nineyard run by Aguilar (8-24). Josh Arzola had the extra-point kick. Okanogan responded with Jerid Peterson taking the kickoff up the right side for an 81-yard return and touchdown. After Danny Parks kicked the extra point the game was tied at 7-7 with 9:31 left in the first quarter. The teams seemed to settle down defensively with each going 1-2-3 and out. Omak would cap a drive late in the first quarter with an 11yard run by Dylan Green (8126) for a 14-7 lead. On the first play of the second quarter, Omak scored on a 35-yard pass from Aguilar to Rylan Springer (3-90 receiving; 1-17 rushing), who jumped in the far right corner for the catch while still managing to stay inbounds.

Arenacross hits Stampede Arena The Chronicle OMAK – Professional riders from around the state and local riders, too, are entering the inaugural Xtreme Arenacross and Freestyle set for 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, in the Stampede Arena. “We are expecting 75 to 100 riders,” Xtreme Powersports’ Darren Goetz said. Goetz said there will be a pro class and, for local riders wanting to give the course a try, an amateur class. Arenacross is similar to supercross motorcycle racing, but with a tighter course that makes it harder to pass. Entries can be taken up to 2 p.m. the day of the event.

Sidelines From B1 The cost is $7 for adults, $5 for students and free for children younger than 5. Greenaway is the daughter of JoDe and the late Rick Greenaway, Malott. ◆◆◆◆◆ For those that want to mark their calendars for various Eastern Washington hunts, here you go: • Black Bears: Aug 1 to Nov 15. • Deer (archery): Sept 1 to Sept 24. • Deer (muzzleloader): Sept 25 to Oct 3. • Deer (modern firearms): Oct 16 to 31 also Nov 5 to 19 for white-tails. • Elk (archery): Sept 7 to 19. • Elk (muzzleloader): Oct 2 to 8. • Elk (modern firearms): Oct 30 to Nov 7. • Pheasants (general season): Oct 23 to Jan 17 • Quail, Chukar, Partridge: Oct 2 to Jan 17. It’s a good idea to be wearing a hunter-orange or a brilliant yellow top on your fall hikes, runs, and rides. Because some areas see a heavier influx of hunters than others, you may choose to avoid some areas altogether during the peak of hunting season. The high buck hunt, which includes the Pasayten Wilderness, is underway now and will last through Sept. 25. ◆◆◆◆◆ The Seattle Times/Washington Interscholastic Activities Association named Oroville’s Sierra Speiker it’s 2B state female athlete of the week after she set a course record Sept. 11 at the Tonasket Cross Country Invitational. In her first high school competition, the freshman covered the hilly 2.8-mile course in 17 minutes, 47 seconds. Omak’s Kaitlynn Pecha set the previous record in 2007 at 18:32. This year, Omak’s Megan Thornton (19:08), Chelan’s Lyndsey Fox (19:59) and Tonasket’s Jessica Spear (20:10) had the third, fourth and fifth fastest times, Tonasket coach Bob Thornton said. At the same meet, Republic’s Jon Bennett

Entries also can be taken online at, at Xtreme Powersports, 1930 Second Ave. N. or by calling 509-826-5771. A ramp will be installed for freestyle, where riders fly through the air doing tricks. “It should be awesome,” Goetz said. The new arena does not have a sprinkler in the middle any more, which allows riders to get high for their tricks, organizer Chad Stansbury said. There will also be a class for children. Tickets will be sold at the door for $8 for those 13-andup, $5 for those age 7-12 and free to those 6-and-under. Doors open at 4 p.m. finished first in 15:27, the second-fastest time on the course, Thornton said. Tonasket’s Damon Halvorsen, who was second in 15:42, ran the fourth fastest time, Thornton said. Republic’s Nik Michael set the boys record last year at 15:17. The third fastest time was by Tonasket’s Billy Monroe in 2006 at 15:40. ◆◆◆◆◆ Chance Carson, a 16-yearold sophomore at Omak High School, was named the leading jockey at the Okanogan County Fair on Sept. 1112. He closed out the weekend with seven firsts, three seconds and a third Carson by riding Latigo to victory Sunday in the one-mile Fred Marchand Memorial, Carson is familiar with Latigo, having ridden the Skip Burbank-owned horse to first place before 2,000 fans in the 117th running of the Vernon Cup on July 25 in British Columbia. He finished the six-race card with two wins, two seconds and a third. Carson, the son of Smoker and Anne Marchand, plans to continue racing horses this fall. ◆◆◆◆◆ The Chronicle’s football contest last week failed to list a game with the Papa Murphy’s Pizza ad. One entrant reminded us of the oops and another said “large only” would win. Three people listed “pepperoni.” In the same contest, six more people picked Okanogan to beat Omak. So the Pioneers pulled an upset based on the entries. ◆◆◆◆◆ Correction: The Omak girls cross country team came in second at the Tonasket Invitational Sept. 11. The Chelan girls won 26-30 over the Pioneers. In the Sept. 12 state poll, Omak was listed No. 4 and Chelan No. 8.

Malott packed for cage fighting Promotor brings nine bouts to town By Al Camp The Chronicle MALOTT – A standing room only crowd cheered several hours during cage fighting Sept. 18 at the Wagon Wheel Tavern. Perhaps the best of the night’s nine fights was one added for the nightcap between Marc Jefferson, Twisp, and Andres Nunez, Okanogan. Nunez landed flying kicks early while Jefferson used his wrestling skills to get out of several jams before being awarded the victory. “That was a really good fight,” promoter Ryan Harvey said. Harvey said he was happy both with the size of crowd and that rain held off until the final two bouts. He expected to bring cage

fighting back to Omak in February at the Community Center. Harvey’s Cannibull Fight Team of Tonasket will be in Spokane this weekend competing at the Excite Fights. Michael Craig and Riley Buzzard are expected to fight. Bouts in order: Jose Rodriguez, Tri-Cities, over Jordan Cruz, Twisp. Ryan Porter, Omak, over Blaine Norman, Malott. Casey “Vice” Brender, Tonasket, over Steven St. Peter, Omak. Larry Voss, Tonasket, over Kyle Kate, Omak. Kevin Webber, Tonasket, over Jorge Morales, Omak.

MOSES LAKE – The Omak High School girls cross country team brought home first place for small schools (1A and Bs) Sept. 18 from the Moses Lake Invitational meet. Meanwhile, Oroville’s Sierra Speiker won her second straight race (19:51). “Girls from Ephrata, Wenatchee, Eastmont, Moses Lake, Omak, Tonasket, Quincy and other North Central Washington schools tried to stay with her,” Oroville coach Doug Kee said. “But she pulled away from the pack about a mile into the race.” The Pioneer girls, led by Megan Thornton in third place (21 minutes, 5 seconds), finished fifth out nine total teams on a five kilometer (31. mile) grass course at Blue Heron Park. “This is two weeks in Thornton a row in which she has run well and finished in the Top 3,” coach

Melody Pecha said. “We are very proud of the way Megan is running this year. She is showing the spirit and drive of a true competitor.” Tonasket’s Damon Halvorsen finished 10th in 17:44. The Tonasket boys were second for small schools, trailing only Royal. “They are learning to step up to run at the next level,” Tonasket coach Bob Thornton said. “It is still early in the season.” The Omak boys’ team, led by the Goble brothers, Michael (18.43) and Samuel (19:31), was third out of seven small schools. In the middle school race over a 1.5-mile course, Omak’s Jasmine Dodgen finished second in 11:35. “She’s a seventh-grader and had an outstanding race,” coach Sean Kato said. Right behind her were Omak’s Camille Bolton, third in 11:40, and Lexi Dawson, fourth in 11:47.

Hammons charged Amanda Arlene Sanabia Hammons, 28, Riverside, was charged Sept. 13 with possession of a controlled substance — hydrocodone and third-degree theft. Hammons allegedly took more than 100 Oxycodone pills Jan. 13 from the purse of a Riverside woman. A warrant was issued for Hammons’ arrest Sept. 13, with bail set at $5,000. The victim, whose full name was not used in a probable cause statement, alleged she saw Hammons going through the purse shortly before 5 a.m. Hammons talked by phone to deputies several times but failed to show up at the Sheriff’s Office as promised, court records said. A check with a boyfriend found she allegedly had moved out of her residence. Manufacture alleged John Michael Novak, 45, Wauconda, was charged Sept. 9 with manufacture of marijuana and use of drug paraphernalia. Novak is charged with growing marijuana in a shed on his property. An anonymous caller reported the plants, which led to a search warrant being served at the property July 7. Novak and his wife tried to explain how they understood the medical marijuana law but they were told 59 plants exceeded the 15 they allegedly could grow. The search also allegedly produced a pound and a half of dried marijuana and a scale. Jones charged James Ryan Jones, 25, Twisp, was charged Sept. 9 with vehicular assault. Jones allegedly was driving a pickup truck that rolled onto the driver’s side and caught fire Aug. 11, 2009, on Lookout Mountain Road near Twisp. His wife, Jenny Jones, was a passenger. She suffered burns on 30 percent of her body. She complained of no feeling in her burned legs at the scene, court records said.

He tore off his burning clothes before running naked for help. The couple allegedly had been drinking prior to the crash.


Jenny Jones told investigators she saw snow just before the pickup slid, hit a dirt embankment and overturned. Smith charged Jessica Ann Marie Smith, 20, Omak, was charged Sept. 9 with welfare fraud. Smith allegedly failed to notify the state Department of Social and Health Services that her husband was working while illegally receiving $2,016 in overpayment for food assistance Dec. 1, 2008 to May 31, 2009. Markel charged Leadee May Markel, 44, Omak, was charged Sept. 14 with failure to register as a sex offender. Markel allegedly did not live in an Omak residence where she was registered to be living from Dec. 25, 2009, through Feb. 23, 2010. The sheriff’s office received a tip Markel had left from someone trying to repossess a vehicle at the residence on South Birch. An investigation found she was living with a boyfriend in Deer Park, where she allegedly was arrested Feb. 27 for domestic assault. When the boyfriend learned she was a registered sex officer, he told officials he did not want her living with him, court records said. The dispute allegedly was due to Markel not wanting to leave the residence. She allegedly clawed the boyfriend. Relatives rescued several animals left at her residence. Markel was sentenced to 210 months in prison after being found not amenable to sex offender treatment. She’d been found guilty March 15, 1991, of four counts of first-degree rape of a child and fourth-degree assault. She was released Feb. 6, 2006, to her parents in Omak.

Juvenile Court From Okanogan County Superior Court records Zumwalt sentences John Dale Zumwalt, 15, Malott, pleaded guilty Sept. 15 to first-degree rape of a child and first-degree child molestation.

Bird watchers convene in Pateros By Cheryl Schweizer Chronicle correspondent PATEROS — Bird watching, raptor lore and some raptors themselves will be featured at the first Chelan Ridge Hawk Festival, headquartered in Pateros Memorial Park this Saturday, Sept. 25. Birdwatchers can catch shuttle rides to Chelan Ridge

from the park throughout the day, beginning at about 8 a.m. Bird biologists will be at the viewpoint along the ridge to give birdwatchers some perspective on what they see, North Central Washington Audubon spokeswoman Bridget Egan said. Additional bird-watching field trips are scheduled to Bridgeport Bar and Central

Ferry Canyon to focus on waterfowl and migratory songbirds. Participants will leave the park at 8:15 and 8:30 a.m., Egan said. Mike Irwin will lead a photography workshop at 10 a.m., and will include tips on taking good pictures with cameras readily available to consumers.

The Audubon Society and Conservation Northwest, among others, will have information booths in the park, and participants in the Raptor Club at Washington State University will bring birds to the park. Vendors will offer a variety of items, including nesting boxes and bird-themed clothing and hats, Egan said. Raptor watching is a good

introduction to bird watching, Egan said. Raptors are easier for novices to spot, and they have interesting stories. Chelan Ridge is a good place to watch the annual migration that’s now under way, she said. Organizers ask that interested birdwatchers make reservations. People who want to ride the shuttles can call 509731-4790 and leave a message.

TONASKET – Bellingham musician Dana Lyons entertained the audience with a musical mix of humor and social activism as the culmination of International Day of Peace activities Sept. 18 During the day, other musicians and activists spoke and entertained people from across the state to urge and inspire them to seek peace, starting at the local level, organizers said. Lyons, who is on his “ThreeLegged Coyote” tour through Eastern Washington, sang some of his better-known songs and numbers from his latest CD. He ended the first set with his international hit, “Cows with Guns,” and finished the performance with the Pete Seeger hit “If I had a Hammer.” He told of his association with primatologist Jane Goodall and how she envisions circling the globe with giant peace dove puppets.

Dana Lyons strums a tune. The giant white birds are crafted from used bed sheets with a large body, head and beak in the center and two eight-foot-long wings. The bird is controlled by three individuals who hold poles attached to the puppet. An Okanogan Peacemakers puppet decorated one corner of the meeting room at the Community Cultural Center,

Medieval tournament set The Chronicle TONASKET — The Society for Creative Anachronism plans an allchampions event Oct. 1-3 at the Tonasket Rodeo Grounds. The event is not open to the public, though people interested in joining the local Dregate group can stop by the gate for information, AnTir Media Relations Officer Flora Shannon said. Potential champions will vie for the title in their given area of expertise. There will be six

champions selected, and membership is a requirement for participation. SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre17th century Europe. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, classes, workshops and more.” More information is at or

where the event was held. Lyons, who was born and raised in upstate New York, moved to Bellingham to launch his musical career in 1985. His first musical tour was through Okanogan and Ferry counties in 1986. “Cows with Guns” put him on the international charts in 1996. The International Day of Peace is held annually on the weekend closest to the United Nations observance of the Day of Peace, Sept. 21. Prior to Lyons’ performance, there was a minute of silence for Stephen McManners and others who died in the service of their country. McManners, who died in Turkey while serving in the U.S. Air Force, was the youngest brother of Paulie Richardson, Conconully. The local peace festival was conceived by McManners’ family, which lost a cousin in Lebanon. They formed a collaboration with Veterans for Peace

Flu season is on its way The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Flu season will soon be upon us and health officials are spreading the word about the benefits of immunization. “Seasonal flu takes the lives of approximately 36,000 people each year in the United States,” Spokane Regional Health District Health Officer Dr. Joel McCullough said. “Preventing its spread remains a public health priority.” Good public health practices go a long way in preventing people from catching the flu, McCullough said. This year, it’s recommended that all people 6 months and older get immunized against flu. Unlike last year, people age 9 and older need only a single shot of flu vaccine to protect against three strains of the flu, including the H1N1 virus. Some children 6 months to 8 years of age may require two doses of this year’s flu vaccine. More information is available from health care providers and county health districts. Vaccine, in both the nasal mist and shot form, will be offered by many local health care provider offices and pharmacies. Typical flu can cause a range of symptoms and effects, from mild to severe. Most healthy people recover from the flu without problems. Persons at high risk of flu complications include people age 65 and older, young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, neurologic and neurodevelopmental disorders, heart disease, and people with

immunosuppressive conditions and associated medications. Flu symptoms may include sudden onset of fever, cough, headaches, body aches, chills, weakness and extreme fatigue. People with flu-like symptoms are advised to stay home for at least 24 hours and avoid contact with other people, except to get medical care if necessary, health officials said. Tips for preventing the spread of flu: • Get a flu shot each year. • Stay at home if you have a cough or fever. • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze, cough or blow your nose. • Wash your hands after you dispose of used tissues. • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve/elbow. • Regularly clean surfaces in your home that are touched often, such as light switches, doorknobs, faucets and appliance handles. • Don’t share food, utensils, beverages, towels, lipstick, toys, cigarettes or anything else that might become contaminated with germs. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs can spread by touching them.

• Avoid close contact with sick people. Most germs are spread when a sick person coughs, sneezes or talks.

• Wear a mask in a medical office if asked. • Always follow your health care provider's instructions and take medicine as prescribed.

Children’s health is a concern The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Parents and guardians can help make the school year safe and successful for children by providing for their basic health care needs. The state Department of Health offers some tips: • Immunizations — Whether the child is a toddler or a teenager, immunization is the best defense against a variety of diseases. Immunizations are especially important in a school setting where diseases can spread quickly. Meningococcal disease is a concern on college campuses, especially for students living in dorms. In Washington, 30-60 cases are reported each year, including one to eight deaths. The disease can cause permanent brain damage, hearing loss, learning disability, limb amputation and kidney failure. Vaccination can prevent some kinds of meningococcal disease. • Nutrition and physical activity — More than half of America’s young people are not physically active and don't eat vegetables and fruit on a regular basis.

• Hand washing — Washing hands is one of the most important ways to keep children from getting sick. • Injury prevention — The Safe Kids USA Web site provides tips to help kids be safe at school or on their way to and from school. For children old enough to drive themselves to school, the state offers “The Washington Parent Guide to Teen Driving.” • Food safety — A lunch that sits unrefrigerated for hours waiting for the lunch hour can pose possible health risks.

Precautions can help reduce heat risk The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Severe heat may cause illness or even death, so when temperatures rise, people can take precautions to reduce risks. The state Department of Health offers hot weather tips to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke: • Stay indoors and in an air-conditioned environment as much as possible unless you're sure your body has a high tolerance for heat. • Drink plenty of fluids, but avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine or a lot of sugar. • Eat more frequently but make sure meals are balanced and light. • Never leave any person or pet in a parked vehicle. • Avoid dressing babies in heavy clothing or wrapping them in warm blankets. • Check frequently on people who are elderly, ill or may need help. If you might need help, arrange to have family, friends or neighbors check in with you at least twice a day throughout warm weather periods. • Make sure pets have plenty of water. • Salt tablets should be taken only if

specified by your doctor. People on saltrestrictive diets should check with a doctor before increasing salt intake. • If you take prescription diuretics, antihistamines, mood-altering or antispasmodic drugs, check with a doctor about the effects of sun and heat exposure. • Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun. Awnings or louvers can reduce the heat entering a house by as much as 80 percent. • Plan strenuous outdoor activities for early or late in the day when temperatures are cooler; then gradually build up tolerance for warmer conditions. • Take frequent breaks when working outdoors. • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sun block and light-colored, loose-fitting clothes when outdoors. • At first signs of heat illness (dizziness, nausea, headaches, muscle cramps), move to a cooler location, rest for a few minutes and slowly drink a cool beverage. Seek medical attention immediately if you do not feel better. • Avoid sunburn. It slows the skin’s ability to cool itself. Use a sunscreen lotion with a high SPF (sun protection factor)

rating. • Avoid extreme temperature changes. A cool shower immediately after coming in from hot temperatures can result in hypothermia, particularly for elderly or very young people. • If air conditioning is not available, stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine. • Ask your doctor about any prescription medicine you keep refrigerated. (If the power goes out, most medicine will be fine to leave in a closed refrigerator for at least three hours.) • Keep a few bottles of water in your freezer. If the power goes out, move them to your refrigerator and keep the doors shut.

Smoking rates top state numbers Statistics show adults in Ferry and Okanogan counties are heavier smokers than average The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Ferry and Okanogan counties had adult smoking rates well above the state rate for 2009. Statistics from the state Department of Health indicate Washington’s adult smoking rate has declined to a new low of 14.8 percent, but Ferry and Okanogan counties’ rates remain much higher. Ferry County notched a 27.8 percent smoking rate for 2009, according to department statistics. Okanogan County had a 21.9 percent rate. The statewide rate is the third-lowest in the nation and is down from 15.3 percent in 2008. The department said factors likely to have contributed to Washington’s continued decrease in adult smoking include:

• One of the nation’s strongest smokefree laws. • The third-highest cigarette tax in the country. • A comprehensive tobacco prevention and control program. Despite gains statewide, smokeless tobacco use is on the rise among people who already smoke, state figures show. People from lowincome and lower educational backgrounds continue to smoke at higher rates, 29 and 27 percent, respectively. The tobacco industry spends more than $146 million a year in Washington to market its products, the department said. About 45 youth start smoking each day, and about 7,500 people a year die in Washington from tobacco-related diseases. The Washington State Tobacco Quit Line, 1-800-QUIT-NOW, 1-877-2NOFUME, provides free help to people who are ready to quit.

Keeping cool where bugs are concerned The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Keeping your cool when bugs fly can help reduce your risk of winding up on the business end of a bloodthirsty mosquito or irritated wasp. Bees sting, yet they play an important role in pollinating flowering plants. Honey bees and bumble bees that are away from their hive or nest and looking for nectar or pollen will rarely sting, except when stepped on or deliberately provoked, according to the state Department of Health. Wasps and yellowjackets are more easily provoked than bees and their stings can be painful, with redness, itching and swelling that may last for several days. To keep from being stung by a bee or wasp: • Don’t disturb the hive or nest. • Don't swat at bees or wasps — this agitates them, making them more likely to sting. • Avoid brightly colored clothes, opentoed shoes, and perfumes or scented lotions when outside. • Keep food covered or behind screens when eating outdoors. • Dispose of food properly, including


Bee stings can be painful — and deadly. decaying fruit in late summer. People who are allergic to wasp and bee stings should carry identification that states the allergy and any medicine being taken, the department said. Severe reactions can affect the whole body and may occur very quickly — often within minutes — and may be fatal if untreated. Call 911 if someone who was stung has chest pain, face or mouth swelling, trouble swallowing, trouble breathing or goes into shock. There’s plenty of talk about mosquitoes and West Nile virus, yet other summertime nuisances such as horse and deer flies also can deliver a painful, itchy bite. Scratching the bite may lead to infection.

Horse and deer flies are active during the day and are common around ponds, streams and marshes. They’re capable of transmitting tularemia, a bacterial disease. The department said people should cover exposed skin and use a repellent to keep the flies from biting. Two types of ticks are found across the state — hard and soft ticks. They usually feed on animals, but they'll feed on people when they can. Hard ticks can transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, though both are very rare in Washington. Such ticks live in wooded, brushy or grassy areas. Hikers, campers, and others spending time outdoors in tick-infested areas should check themselves for ticks often. Tick-borne relapsing fever is transmitted by soft ticks. It’s the most common tickborne disease in the state. Houses and cabins infested with rodents also may be home to soft ticks. Contact a health care provider if a tick bite results in a fever, rash, pain or swelling, the department said. Tick removal tips are available at Diseases.htm#remove.

Illness can spread through food The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Precautions can help keep barbecue, picnic and potluck food safe. Unwashed hands, undercooked meats, cross-contamination from raw meats to other foods, and eating unwashed fruits and vegetables can spread E. coli, salmonella and a host of other foodborne diseases. What many people call “stomach flu” or “intestinal virus” is often food poisoning, resulting in symptoms from mild nausea to a serious condition requiring medical treatment and hospitalization, the state Department of Health said. Especially at risk are young children, the elderly and people who have diseases that involve the immune system, such as asthma, arthritis, cancer, HIV, diabetes, and liver and kidney diseases. The department offers some tips: • Wash hands with soap and water before and after handling raw meats. Wash before eating. If running water is not available, hand sanitizers or disposable hand wipes can be used in a pinch.

• Avoid crosscontamination of foods. • Cook meats thoroughly. • Prepare salads properly. Watch out for meats and mayonnaisebased dressings that will be left unchilled. Transport potato, macaroni and other

salads on ice. • Wash fresh fruits and vegetables. Use a brush and running water to clean the outsides of melons. Keep cut fruit cold. • Keep cold foods cold — below 40 degrees F. • Keep hot foods hot — above 140 degrees F. • Refrigerate leftovers. Food left out for more than two hours should be discarded. Baked goods, chips and unopened drinks generally are safe to serve later without refrigeration. • Cook and clean up properly. Clean utensils and cutting surfaces to avoid contamination from raw meat to other foods, use a different utensil and dish for cooking than for serving, and wash utensils and surfaces with hot soapy water, then rinse.

What does Public Health do? How does Public Health benefit me, my family and my community? Okanogan County Public Health works to: ■ Prevent disease and injury ■ Promote healthier choices ■ Protect food, water and air ■ Prepare for emergencies Public Health operates very much “behind the scenes”. We’re not as visible as law enforcement or fire fighting, but we’re just as vital to the safety and well being of the community. For example, Public Health monitors and responds to outbreaks of diseases to control their spread and to prevent further illness. Public Health inspects restaurants and other food establishments to ensure safe and proper food handling and to ensure the food you eat is safe. All public drinking water systems are monitored for quality by Public Health. Public Health distributes vaccines to medical providers that are used to immunize you and your family. Public Health enforces regulations to make sure septic systems operate properly and pose no threat to human health. This kind of work often goes unnoticed – unless it isn’t being done. Public Health is working everyday for a safer and healthier community.
