Hiram ‘Okanogan’ Smith’s gravesite a mystery no more CONTRIBUTED BY MIKE SIBLEY OKANOGAN BORDERLANDS HISTORICAL SOCIETY

SEATTLE - Two years after his death and burial, Hiram “Okanogan” Smith’s mortal remains were disinterred, moved, and lost, until recently. Oroville researcher Dorothy Petry, working with Seattle’s Lake View Cemetery’s Julie Lundquist, believes Smith’s burial plot has been found. Hiram Francis Smith, born 1829, is credited as the father of Washington State’s apple industry. Settling on the eastern banks of Lake Osoyoos, Smith planted his first apples in the ‘Okanogan’ Smith late 1850s. He later served as a legislator for Washington territory and state. Smith died in Seattle’s Diller Hotel on Sept. 9, 1893, after a prolonged illness terminating in pneumonia. Three State Senators and three State Representatives served as pall bearers at his Sept. 12 funeral. According to Smith’s funeral home record, his body was interred in section 130 of Lake View. Close by are the graves of the Yesler family, the Ranke family, Chief Seattle’s granddaughter Angeline, and other notables. In 1895, someone, for unknown reason or reasons, had the remains removed from their original burial space. Lake View records indicate it cost seven dollars to have Smith’s casket moved. No one knew the body’s new location until recently. Petry took up the mission of finding Smith’s burial site a number of years ago. This was long after Okanogan Judge William Compton Brown searched for it in the mid-1950s. Historian Bruce Wilson failed to find the plot in a 1983 search.

OROVILLE – There were still no public comments on the updates to Oroville’s Critical Areas/ Comprehensive Plan Amendments so the council decided to set up a one-hour workshop prior to their June 18 meeting to answer questions and take testimony. While the public didn’t give any input at the city council’s June 4 meeting, several council members and staff did ask questions of Chris Branch, director of community development. City Clerk Kathy Jones asked about the limitations on Chris Branch “Frequently Flooded Areas” and the fact no new lots could be created. Councilman Ed Naillon said he had concerns regarding long time local developers versus new developers and wanted to make sure the rules applied equally to both. Branch said that the forms used are standard and apply to all developers. “The biggest changes are in the wetlands section,” said Branch after the meeting. “Mostly in the hundred year floodplain and in the floodway... areas we regulate now. But the new piece does not allow new subdivisions.” Branch said no new lots will be able to be created that don’t have legally buildable spaces outside the floodplain. He said wetland areas are based on a scoring system for habitat value. “Ecology provides a Small City’s Guidance Manual which has added more flexibility to the

When Petry connected with Lake View’s Customer Service Coordinator Lundquist she also sent her copies of articles relating to Smith, his life, death, and his missing remains. Lundquist reported the cemetery had no record of what had become of Smith. Petry kept searching for details and contacted Lundquist again seeking more

information. Recently Lundquist was successful in the search for Smith’s burial site. Hiram Smith was reburied in Lake View’s lot 873 under the name “Smith Okanogan.” Whether the missing comma was a clerical error or a secret plot remains a mystery. The resulting name reversal has kept Smith’s burial

site a secret since 1895. He was there all the time. The Okanogan Borderlands Historical Society has presented Lindquist with a commemorative photo of an original Smith apple tree in bloom with his likeness inset at the side, as well as dried apples from the tree itself.

CRITICAL | FROM A1 buffer areas. Which is a good deal.” Branch said that developers will still have to work through a biologist who will have a checklist. “The responsibility then rests with the biologist and not with the city staff who does not have as much training... something that had been a concern of the council,” he said. While Critical Areas can be anywhere within the city, those that fall within the state’s Shoreline Master Program -- within 200 feet of natural high water that is designated of significance to the state -- like Lake Osoyoos and the Okanogan and Similkameen rivers, will likely see additional changes after the city adopts the Shoreline Master Program, according to Branch. “It will change a bit when we adopt the Shoreline Master Program according to the new standards. All the Critical Areas within the Shoreline you have

to regulate with the Shoreline Management Act. Those rules will change by the end of the year. Some may become less stringent,” Branch said. “For now we are taking the Critical Areas and putting them in there, we may have to modify them later.”

Veterans Park Concession Stand Jarred Naclerio presented a proposal to lease the city’s concession stand at Veterans Memorial Park. In addition to wanting to prepare and sell several food items, he would also rent floatation devices and beach toys. Hw told the council he had the proper commercial equipment to prepare food. The council agreed to the lease provided Naclerio first obtain the proper food handlers license, pass a health department inspection and supply proof of insurance. In a related item, the Oroville Chapter of the Royal Neighbors were granted a park application to provide some type of enter-

tainment one night a month at Veterans Memorial Park from June through August.

Airport Economics Discussed Branch said he had recently attended an Airport Conference. He said there is an online tool to evaluate an airport’s economic impact via the state DOT’s Aeronautics Division. Having fuel available for sale is the best economic value for airport operations, Branch said. Lastly, he discussed marketing Oroville’s Dorothy Scott Airport via facebook. He said the social website is proving a valuable source of information for letting pilots know about airports. The next Oroville City Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18 at 7 p.m. in the city council chambers located at 1308 Ironwood. The workshop on the Critical Areas/Comprehensive Plan Update will take place from 6 p.m. to start of the council meeting.

Gray wolf management could shift to state OLYMPIA - The management of gray wolves in Washington could soon be exclusively under state control thanks to a proposal announced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to end federal protection for the species. While gray wolves statewide are considered endangered under Washington law, the federal Endangered Species Act protects only those in the western twothirds of the state. Seventh District Senator John Smith, R-Colville, said ending federal protections after three decades of nationwide recovery efforts would signal that wolf populations have reached recovery levels. Smith also credited the legislative action taken in

Olympia this session as having a significant impact on the Service’s decision to move forward with their proposal. The proposal is supported by our governor and state Fish and Wildlife Commission with the belief that the state should be responsible for the management of wolves. “It is a good thing when the federal government can relinquish control back to the authority of the state,” Smith said. “Local is always better in my mind.” Smith said the proposed federal action is a positive step and would open a more productive discussion about statewide wolf management efforts. It would be significant for eastern Washington

where the species has multiplied rapidly and caused turmoil to many ranching operations. “This proves that the voices and concerns from people in eastern Washington are being heard – not only in Olympia, but in Washington, D.C. as well,” Smith said. “The suffering and loss endured because of wolf recovery has not been in vain. The proposed removal of federal protections moves us in the right direction to find solutions for the future,” he adds According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the public will be able to comment during a 90-day period and a final decision will be made in 2014.

Tonasket sophs experience Okanogan Relay for Life Submitted by Haley Montowski, Cassie Blaney, and Jesse Holan Tonasket High School

TONASKET - At the end of the 2012 school year, everybody in Tonasket High School’s ASB was enthusiastic about the upcoming years theme, “How Can I Help?” We all thought it was going to be a great way for students to get involved and help out in the community. Each class had chosen a charity they would be responsible raising money for. Our sophomore class’ charity was the American Cancer Society. As we were discussing how to decorate our hallway to represent our chosen charity, we began thinking about what event we could partake in that would contribute to cancer awareness. After going through many ideas, we felt that walking in Relay For Life would be the most beneficial and fun. We were excited about the fact that everybody in our class could participate in this fundraiser. Towards the middle of the 2012-2013 school year our sophomore class officers began talking to the rest of the 10th grade, explaining what we wanted to do and how we planned on doing it. Participants started selling footprints, T-shirts, and luminaries to the Tonasket community. The luminaries we sold were to be bought in honor of cancer survivors, those who died from cancer, and those fighting cancer. They would later be used to light the track when the sun went down. The actual event was a blast. We left the Tonasket High School at 3:30 p.m. on Friday after school and hit the ground running upon arrival. We set up camp immediately and managed to get everything prepared in time to offi-

It was a truly moving experience; witnessing - and recognizing - the sheer numbers of people pass by whose lives had all been affected by cancer. The amazing part is that there are even more survivors right here in Okanogan County that weren’t at the relay. Next, all of the teams from Okanogan’s surrounding communities lined up to go by on their first laps. Later in the night, when the luminaries were lit for the silent lap that brought us to nighttime, there were many tears fallen at the sight of glowing symbols of dearly missed friends and loved ones. This was an experience that will never easily be forgotten. Hours later, when the sky had brightened and the relay goers

had exhausted their energy, tents started to go down and sites started to clear up. At 10:00 a.m. there was a final lap where all remaining participants joined together on the track once more. The Relay For Life was wonderful experience that raised thousands of dollars and along with it, hopes for a cure. Through the process of planning, raising money, and working together we learned the importance of making a difference. We always knew that cancer awareness was a big deal, but now we truly respect those who are affected. All of the work that was put in by our class and teachers alone was tremendous. All of the sophomore participants would like to once again thank our chaperones, the community, and our sponsors for being so supportive, buying us T-shirts, and helping us to go above and beyond our goal of bringing cancer awareness to Tonasket High School.

Seeing the forest among the trees OHA: from the panorama to the patch, how do people fit? Submitted by Julie Ashmore Conservation coordinator, OHA

Renowned Forest Ecologist, Herb Hammond, will kick off the Summer 2013 Highland Wonders series with a unique perspective on Okanogan Highlands ecology. “Seeing the Forest Among the Trees,” features a Friday evening presentation (June 28, 6:30 p.m. at the Tonasket High School Commons) with a Saturday outdoor field trip the following day. This two-part approach provides the best of both venues for maximum learning and enjoyment. The evening presentation can be a stand-alone experience for anyone who can’t make the field trip, and everyone is welcome to attend the presentation. Herb will discuss the composition, structure and function of our local forest ecosystems, making spatial connections between the greater landscape and the close-up patch of land, as well as temporal connections about how forest ecosystems function through time. Herb will introduce Ecosystem-Based Conservation Planning (EBCP) as a way of thinking about and relating to the forest as a dynamic system, creating solutions that go beyond the old ways of industrialized forestry, fostering roles for people as a respectful part of a holistic approach. EBCP is necessary if concepts like sustainable resource management are to be other than advertising slogans. “Ecosystem-Based Conservation Planning has relevance in our day-to-day lives as well as in plans for major land use activities,” Herb says. “Facilitating diverse community-based economies is an important part of an ecosystem-based conservation

A broad perspective will be shared on forest diversity and ecology, and how various human land uses are supported by ecosystems. Herb Hammond is a Registered Professional Forester and forest ecologist with 35 years experience in research, industry, teaching and consulting. He holds a Bachelor of Science in forest management from OSU and a Masters of Forestry from UW. Hammond is well known for his development and application of ecosystem-based conservation planning, which he defines as the protection and ecologically responsible use of ecosystems through all scales of time and space. He has worked for many years with First Nations and other rural communities to develop ecosystem-based conservation plans. In 2003, Herb received the Gold Award for Sustainable Living at the Canadian Environmental Awards. Hammond delivers

keynote speeches, slide presentations, and workshops throughout North America and around the world. He is the author of the award-winning book Seeing the Forest Among the Trees: The Case for Holistic Forest Use (Polestar Press) and co-author of Community Guide to the Forest. Hammond writes extensively for scientific publications and the popular press. His most recent book, Maintaining Whole Systems on Earthís Crown: Ecosystembased Conservation Planning for the Boreal Forest was released in March, 2009. Priority registration for the field trip is offered to OHA members, and remaining space will be available on a first come, first serve basis to the public. Those who plan to attend the field trip will get the most out of the experience if they also attend the evening presentation. Both are offered free of charge to the community, and donations are welcome. Field trip details will be provided upon registration.

Breadline at the Beach is a diner being operated by The Breadline Cafe of Omak. The diner, which is open to all the public throughout the summer, is located at Veranda Beach Resort.

Breadline opens summer diner Submitted by Zachery Van Brunt For the Breadline Cafe

OROVILLE – The Breadline Cafe has packed up its swimming suit, beach umbrella and sunscreen for the summer. Omak’s premier dining establishment is pleased to announce the opening of its second location: Breadline at the Beach at Oroville’s Veranda Beach Resort. “We’ll be camping out for the summer on the beautiful eastern shores of Osoyoos Lake,” restaurant owner Paula Chambers said. “And it’s going to be a lot of fun.” The diner, located behind the resort’s main office at 299 Eastlake Road, will be open through September for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Keeping up with Veranda Beach’s nostalgic 1950’s vibe, Breadline at the Beach offers

a substantially different menu from its Omak restaurant and a throw-back to the bygone age of soda jerks, iconic neon signs and classic malts. Kitchen manager Tyrus Burnett is trading in the ski slopes for sandy shores this summer; he’s spent 15 years managing the kitchen at Crystal Mountain Resort. He and Chambers have crafted a menu designed specifically for locals, but in a much more casual setting than the Omak location. Mouthwatering burgers and crisp summer salads are staples, of course. But Breadline at the Beach offers some unique and delicious grilled and sautéed options for evening dining as well as fun summer kids’ fare throughout the day. “It’s the perfect getaway to try new foods, revel in classic desserts and soak in as much sun and scenery as possible,” Chambers

said. Located a stone’s throw from the shores of Osoyoos Lake, the diner’s patio promises sweeping views of the international lake, mountain landscapes and some of the best vineyards Oroville has to offer. And the best part? Breadline at the Beach is open to the public, not just to guests of the resort. The fully staffed diner boasts poolside service, a full bar and some of the finest local ingredients the Okanogan has to offer. The diner opened its doors last month and starting July 1, staff will be serving food seven days a week. Chambers recommends calling in advance throughout June for availability. Breadline at the Beach can be reached at (509) 476-0815. More information can be found at www.breadlinecafe.com.

Gifts, Dining & More! tween 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the awards ceremony will be at 1:30 p.m. This year’s car show also features a Tractor Slow Race and Silent Auction. For more information contact (509) 486-1858 or (509) 486-2251.

Thank You!

My retirement celebration picnic on June 1, 2013 was a success thanks to so many of you. A simple thank you seems inadequate for everything that was done to make the day a success. To my thoughtful children, Scott and Jeri, Shawn and Laura, Clint and Kristeen and their families, thank you for providing all the food and games. Thank you to my parents, Albert and Ruthann Wilson for providing the tables and chairs; my colleague Jamie Barker for the invitations; Americorp member, Brandon Speers for bringing Frisbee golf; my family, friends, students and colleagues who came to celebrate with my husband, Dale and myself. I have been challenged and rewarded in my 30-year career in education. I am thankful for the variety of opportunities I was given, and life-long friends I have made. Blessings to each of you who have been an integral part of my profession. I look forward to the path ahead. ~ Kathy Duchow

THE TOWN CRIER

Get involved now or complain later

We have a representative government, at least that’s what they tell us. But in order to be properly represented we can’t just sit back and let things take their course without any input at all. Sure on a national and even a state level, it is harder to be heard. It’s especially so if you don’t represent big money or a big, noisy political group. That’s why local politics are so much better – the local access to our city councils’ county, PUD and hospital commissioners, school boards, even our local rural fire and EMS commissioners. We enjoy high-paid lobbyist-type access to these local governments and yet many still don’t take advantage of that access. Instead we’d rather complain that we didn’t know about this or that. The reasons we hear for not going to meetings are many. From “We don’t have the time to go” to “That’s why we elected them - to take care of things.” And in a way, they’re right, no one has time to attend every meeting. But it is up to us to educate ourselves on what’s going Out of on so that when there is an issue that we really care about we can give our input. One of the My Mind Gary A. DeVon best ways to get that education is through the newspaper. If that’s not your thing you can always call up your local representative and ask them to give you an update on what’s going on. If you know someone who does attend meetings, ask them. Recently we encouraged people to attend one of the public hearings Oroville has been holding on the Critical Areas/Comprehensive Plan Amendment. The city leaders and Community Development Director Chris Branch have all but pleaded for some public input. So far it’s been crickets. They’re giving us one more chance with a onehour workshop before their next meeting on Tuesday, June 18. The workshop starts at 6 p.m. and if you have property in the city, especially property in the floodplain or floodway, then it might be a good idea to educate yourself by checking out the draft plan at oroville-wa. com and then going to the workshop. The hearing on approval of the plan will follow – but your input could be valuable in crafting the final document. We’ve talked a lot about this Oroville issue, but a couple of Tonasket issues are generating after-the-fact concern. The recent passage of an ordinance to turn part of South Tonasket Avenue, between Division and Third into a one-way street and the new Yard Sale Ordinance have met with cries of “We didn’t know this was happening.” Well why not? It has been the subject of several G-T articles, as well legal notices. The city even printed a notice about a town hall meeting asking for public input on the streets ordinance on the water bill. At the time of this writing we don’t know whether the Tonasket Council Chambers will be full of after-the-fact complainers about the two new ordinances, but we wouldn’t bet against it. If it is, maybe they’ll change some minds, but wouldn’t it be nice to have more participation before the decision? We’re not trying to be mean here, but it’s frustrating for those we chose to represent us. In most cases they value the input of the people they represent before acting on an issue. That doesn’t mean things will start going exactly as you wish just because you show up at the right meetings. We’ve done our share of arguing for this or that cause and lost, but at least you can say you tried. And come election time you can vote them out. Heck you can even run for office yourself. In fact there are a few vacant positions that weren’t filed for that are up for grabs during a special three-day filing period. Maybe it’s time to see if you can do better.

THE OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF OROVILLE & TONASKET

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Still waiting for answer on solar power subsidy Dear Editor, Joseph Ensensperger didn’t answer my question about how much solar power is subsidized per KWH. I await that answer. He replied with a proposal to borrow $10,000 with a five-year payback at an interest rate subsidized by PUD ratepayers and produce solar power. A total of $11190.00. Joe believes he will get six hours per day of full output for six months a year. Suppose he could get that for 12 months a year? At six cents/KWH that would be $1051 per year which would be a payback of over 10 years. Not counting cleaning or repairs. It is probably more realistic to use the national average of 15 percent of panel ratings which would return $630.72 per year which would pay back in just under 18 years, not counting maintenance costs of course. How will he clean the panels with no access between them? The big problem is that Joe’s electricity will be produced in the daylight and in summer and he needs it at night and in winter. Power that cannot be produced on demand has almost no real value to the PUD. Sometimes it is worth less than nothing and they pay to get rid of it! So the six cents per KWH he would receive is almost all a subsidy. The good news is that is only six to 12 percent of the normal subsidy for solar power. Brian Thompson Oroville

An old coffee drinker’s philosophy Dear Gary, Instead of coffee, I now drink a wonderful beverage called Spark. 1 just poured my morning cup of Spark and decided to share a bit of my attitude philosophy. It really isn’t

all that great but I do believe that our world would be better off 1F each person were to think in the way I’m suggesting. Actually, I came across a saying the other day that ones attitude determines their altitude. Or, was it visa versa? Anyway, think about this. I never have a bad day as every day is a good day; however, there are some days that are better than others. You see, you can apply this thinking to just about everything and thus have a much more realistic, yet positive view. Will Rogers once said that he had never met a man he didn’t like. I’ve amended that to say I’ve never met a person I didn’t like its just that I like some better than others. Or, I’ve never experienced an event I didn’t like, I’ve just liked some events more than others. I don’t mean to be naïve and portray that everything is always “peaches and cream” because that would be quite untrue. There are also events that I would just as soon hadn’t happened or that I would like to forget; and, of course there are periods in some days that are shaded by ones mood. By example, when I first wake up in the morning, I’ll admit I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I’m sure my wife would verify that statement, (aw, smile, honey). I’m equally sure that there are some that really believe I AM the sharpest knife in the drawer but ONLY if there are no other knives present. All I’m really suggesting is that even though you can’t change the past, you can change your attitude about the past and alter your thinking in the present. If you approach the present with a positive attitude, thinking that all of life is great, and realize that part of that life is greater than other parts then you would be amazed at how beautiful each moment of each day and each sunrise is even if there are some clouds between you and the sun. So — a closing thought: Have a good day, a great week and a fantastic life. The old coffee drinker, Randy Middleton Tonasket

Oroville Senior Center News Dear Editor, Unfortunately, the “Art Event in the Park” previously scheduled for June 15 in the Veterans Park had to be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. Arnie Marchand was disappointed as well as the Royal Neighbor organizers. Joy and John Lawson and their Canadian friends will be providing music for listening or toe tapping again be at the Center on this Friday. June 14. after lunch. We have room for more pool players as well as more execisers. We exercise to music and you will want to tap your toes even while moving other body parts. Judy Ripley is our leader and she has been doing this for more than three years now. Pool players play every day during the week except Wednesdays. Juanita Waggy is due to come home sometime this week. I stopped to see her at the Extended Care Facility and she seemed to be in much better spirits and looking forward to going home. Glen is looking forward to having her home, too. Ellie Cook is home after a long winter down south. She is still as bubbly as ever. Kay Tracy is in the Omak Hospital. Pinochle Scores for June 8: Ted Zachman won the most pinochles and was high scorer for the men: High scorer for women was Danny Weitrick. Dolly E. Won the door prize. More next time. Dolly Engelbretson Oroville Editor’s Note: Dolly’s column somehow got missed and we ran out of room on our correspondents page, so we made an exception and are running it in the letters. Hope this doesn’t cause to much confusion. She’ll be back in the correspondents next week.

Grad gift: How about a little employment advice? Congratulations graduates! Most of you recently escaped dangerous high-school safe, sane, sober and unincarcerated. Commendable. Whether you go to college or not most of you will need a part-time or full-time job, soonest. If your parents are still paying for your support, the clock is ticking on that. I’m so old I haven’t been carded since the Kennedy administration, and when Rite Aid asks my birthday I tell them time doesn’t go back that far. I’m retired, but what’s key here is I’ve had a lot of jobs. Most of my career was as a police/medevac helicopter pilot, but since I supported two families at once for most of my working life I always had a part-time second job. Ergo I’ve been a long-haul trucker, salesman, 911 operator, bus driver, and the horse ambulance/rescue manager for a university equine center. (I also write published novels.) I’ve applied for many jobs for decades, and I got most of them. I’ve sat on hiring boards, been listed as a reference, and I have good friends who run businesses from construction to fast-food to international corporations. So yeah, I have more advice to go with all that you heard at graduation, but you may find mine a little different. First, it’s probably best not to show up for a job interview dressed like a five-year-old prison inmate. Your prospective boss will likely not be impressed by your shorts or thong. (If he is, you might consider working elsewhere.) Likewise, try to cover the tatts and leave the

facial hardware at home. I know, I’m fossilized and times are changing, and you have a right to express your individualism in your own way without being judged. But (pay attention here) employment is about what is, not what ought to be. At a job interview, passing judgement is precisely what Boss is paid to do. If he doesn’t, his boss will pass judgement on him, and you’ll both be reading the job ads. Right, wrong, good, bad or otherwise, unless you’re applying at a tatt/piercing studio, the ink and rivets are at best not going to help, and at worst they’ll torpedo you even if you’re Steve Jobs reincarnated. It’s not optimal to begin your hiring interview with: “Hey man, do you, like, you know, test for drugs, man?” or “Yeah looka here lady, I’ll work for ya but only on weekdays ‘less I gotta date for Friday,” or “Dooooode! Of course I’m late for the interview. Look outside man. Snow! I’m, like, gonna be late, dood, when it snows! Duh!” Oh yeah. Some applicants are even more clever with prospective employers. Not recommended. Bear also in mind that Boss isn’t your next mommy. He doesn’t love you, and he doesn’t know you are the sweetest, brightest, most intelligent child in the whole world, and it’s not his job to support you. Boss only cares about one thing: are you going to cause more money and good will to flow into his company than it costs him to employ you. Period. If not, he not only has no use for you, hiring you is an expensive liability for his business. This isn’t ‘harsh’, ‘unfair’ or ‘greedy’. It’s business. If Boss doesn’t see to

this, he goes out of business to his cut-throat competition and all the jobs his company offers go too, including his own. If he hires you, Boss must not only pay your salary (which may be artificially inflated due to unions or minimum wage laws), but he must pay enormous taxes, fees and other costs to the government for the sin of having hired you. He must insure you for liability if not also for health, and usually he must expensively train you for a long time before you know enough to make him more money than you cost him. Moreover, if you damage his equipment, hurt anybody including yourself, or offend his customers, that cost of employing you goes off the screen. Boss is going to look at you reeeeeal carefully. So, doooood, what’s the point? Here’s the point: You’re never at a job interview to show an employer how cool you think you look or talk, or even how smart you are. You’re there to convince Boss that you will earn and save his company more money than it costs him to employ you, and do it better than the other gazillion applicants. The more valuable a worker you can make of yourself, and the better you can convey that, the better your chances of success in this difficult employment world. Remember who runs your life, young Americans. Now get out there and run it. William Slusher is a writer with a horse ranch on the Okanogan near Riverside.

Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune | JUNE 13, 2013

Okanogan Valley Life

Gordon Roberts has 80th birthday party Just about half of June has moved ahead. Graduations in the area have come and gone and now it’s time for the kids to find a summer job. Not an easy task, but I did see an ad for workers wanted at the cherry warehouse. Can you imagine paying $4 a pound for cherries? I think I’ll wait a while! Word has been received that Kay THIS & THAT (Sherling) Tracy has had the misJoyce Emry fortune to have a debilitating stroke and at the present time is in the hospital.

Kay is one of my favorite people and I’m so glad we had a nice visit with her, recently. It is my understanding that she will be transferred to Tonasket Extended Care Center from Omak hospital when her health improves somewhat. Some have asked me for the address of Ellen Roberts. It is 48 Hubbard Road, Riverside, WA 98849. The facility is called The Golden Years. She enjoys company and a stop doesn’t take long as you go to or return from Omak. Ellen will be 103-years-old next month. All things about becoming 80-yearsold aren’t so bad. Consider being the center of attention for three hours, surrounded by relatives and friends, young and old and some in between, having music by The Wilder’s, singing songs that you can really understand the words to, and having a beautiful cake and other

“munchies.” That is what happened last Saturday afternoon with Gordon Roberts being the honoree. The saying “you’re never too old to learn something new” surely applies to my knowledge about asparagus. Did you know that if when gathering the wild plant, that if you just break off the tips, it won’t grow that stalk again next season? So I’m told. Please cut it off near the root, then you can destroy the parts you don’t want to cook but to keep it growing profusely don’t just break off the tops. Did you know you can transport mosquitoes in your car? People are telling me that those pesky bugs are really bad now, and no spraying is to be done, due to the expense…I guess. Dave and Lonni Lutz had a happy gathering of family and friends last Saturday, when after several weeks of making and making sure everything was ready for the marriage of their daughter, which was held at the Free Methodist Church. Since the death of Howard Cumbo, a few months ago, things have kinda been in limbo with the settlement of the estate, but I’m told it is coming to completion with a family member purchasing the house. At the same time Alicia, the little granddaughter that Howard used

to bring to the senior center and was so proud of, graduated from college in Ellensburg with a Master’s degree in accounting. Congratulations are indeed in order for her, as she had to work very hard to get where she is. Hometown Pizza is once again open, all fresh and clean after the clean-up that caused closure after the recent fire. Former Fat Boy’s still remains closed. New name is to be America’s Home Cooking. Eva’s, (formerly Linda’s) has good food but don’t go there if time is of a concern, but if ya’ just wanna visit, try it! Have been told that the Sear’s store in East Wenatchee is closing with a lot of good sales going on. Seems to me that KMart bought Sears some while back and J.C. Penny is quite different with new owners and of course Montgomery Wards is totally out of business. Those three catalog stores were the “backbone” of the nation “way back when,” before the internet and other transportation was so readily available. Word at church was that there were three ambulance calls answered last week and one patient was airlifted. Several of our friends are battling cancer…Evelyn Frazier, Bruce Cool, Dennis Loudon. Erv

Molson is the place to be this Saturday

Friemuth, Darlene Allen, Bonni Maynard and Marilyn (Sawtell) Toth, and others that have slipped my mind. A former teacher but now of Tonasket, Sheri (Breashears) Wahl was in an accident and I think it happened while horseback riding. There were so many I’m not sure which thing happened to which person, but keep all these good folks in your thoughts. I believe it was Steve Leslie that was airlifted, with heart issues. Saturday is Molson Fun Day’s. Starting with their famous breakfast, then lunch and pie anytime, you can just eat your way through the day. Crafts and fun and games. Just good ‘ole country fun times. If you’ve never been, plan on it. You’ll be glad you did. Sunday, is of course Father’s Day. If you are fortunate enough to still have your dad around, be nice to him every day, but especially on his day to be honored. Some nice warm, sunshiny days and that’s what makes the gardens grow. Bring on the tomatoes and cukes that taste so good. Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the other is the husband. Have a nice weekend!

By now, you have heard that Tonasket Farmers’ Market is the best place to come for farm-fresh produce, yummy desserts, and innovative crafts. Are you aware that the market is also a beehive of information? Functioning as a “living bulletin board,” the market offers a venue for non-profit organizations to spread their messages to the community. As a result, they reach the people in they serve, enlist volunteers, and educate all of us. Let’s see what could be learned on a typical Thursday  afternoon. Stop by the Market Information booth to get started, where Market Manager, Margie Anderson will point you in the right direction. Here we learn several things. Tonasket Farmers’ Market accepts WIC and Senior vouchers for produce. A sign informs you that sign up for the senior voucher program will be at the Tonasket Senior Center on  Wednesday, June 12, 12:301:30 pm. The voucher program allows those who can least afford it access to healthy, fresh produce. Secondly, we learn that the Market itself is a non-profit

group, and Margie is happy to let you know how this works and how you can participate. Community Action representative, Rachel Willner, displayed the programs available to the local community, highlighting the Food For All program. Food For All pairs home gardeners with volunteers who glean from the overabundance of food grown and distribute the produce to area food banks. Executive Director, Lael Duncan, says this offers fresh foods to the weekly distributions. Most people are unaware that the weekly distributions do not provide an entire week worth of

food, but serve only to supplement the needs of a hungry family. The mission here is to not only provide for immediate needs, but also to educate, empower and change lives. You can volunteer many ways. For more information, email rachelw@occac. com or laeld@occac.com. Green Okanogan, or GO, will be at the market this week. They will be giving out information on their metal drive and ecycle collection programs, as well as being available to answer your recycling questions. GO can be reached at (509) 486-2389. Strolling from booth to booth and learning more about our community organizations gave me an appetite. I enjoyed a refreshing sno-cone from the Godinas while listening to live musicians Ray Dispenza, Danny McQuire, and Rick Castor. Come for the food, leave enlightened. See you at the market!

LISTING AN EVENT Our Community Bulletin Board generally allows listing your event for up two weeks prior to the day it occurs. If space allows it may be included prior to the two week limit.

Many fondly recalling the 1967 movie will wonder how we ever adapted it for the stage. How can you have horses, trains, fistfights, drunks and gunplay at the Cultural Center? And music too ? The cast of 11-plus artists, musicians and technicians have been very creative in bringing this comedy to life. Cast includes Aly Parigrew, Rob Thompson, Scott Olson, Nick Watts, Cassandra Schuler, Danika Johnson, Matt Smith, Mike Lynch, Allene Halliday, Mike Oberg, John Oelund, Colette Biele, Kim Harriman, Bud McSpadden, Carlton Roos, plus possible surprise appearances by others.
