Feds approve Enloe Dam License


Water Quality Certification still under appeal with Ecology BY GARY A. DEVON MANAGING EDITOR

OROVILLE – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved a new 50-year federal license for the Okanogan Public Utility District to operate Enloe Dam FERC issued the license on July 9, 2013 for the PUD’s Enloe Dam project. The license is the culmination of nine years of studies, negotiations and plan development with tribes, community groups and local, state and federal agencies, according to a recent press release from the PUD. The nine megawatt (MW) Enloe Dam project is located on the Similkameen River at river mile 8.8 to the northwest of Oroville. “The license contains provisions and commitments over the next five decades that allow the PUD to generate more local renewable hydropower, protect fish and wildlife, and enhance recreation. Some of the key project features include: A new park, picnic area and boat ramp located near the dam site; improved

recreation trails and interpretive signage; multiple fish and wildlife enhancement projects, including a side channel reconnector project on the river and gravel augmentation and an improved access road and parking area for recreators and visitors,” states the utility in their release. Okanogan County PUD staff is currently reviewing the terms and conditions of the FERC license, which also incorporates the terms and conditions of the Water Quality Certification issued by the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) on Aug. 20, 2012 and the incidental take terms and conditions contained in the Biological Opinion submitted to FERC by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) on September 27, 2012. David Womack, President of the public utility’s Board of Commissioners, expressed his pleasure that FERC issued a 50-year license instead of the typical 40-year license. However, John Grubich, General Manager, cautioned that Ecology’s Water Quality Certification is currently under appeal, and the terms and conditions of the easement for the federal land the project sits on have not been finalized with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The FERC license is posted on the PUD’s website at

Power rates going up no matter what Public meetings discuss electric rate increase options BY GARY A. DEVON MANAGING EDITOR Photos by Brent Baker and Zachary Van Brunt

OROVILLE – The rate you pay for electricity is going up no matter what you might have hoped. The questions now are by how much and how soon. Okanogan County PUD held the final of three public meetings Monday, July 22, to explain the current financial situation at the public utility. In order to stay out of a financial hole, the PUD must raise rates due to several factors, especially a drop in the wholesale power market and in the interest it was being paid on reserves. Also, while operating costs have gone up

History. Food. Dancing. Truck and Tractor Pulls. It was quite the diverse day of activity around the north county on Saturday, from Oroville to Tonasket to Wauconda. Top (l-r) Dolly Englebretson, Barbara Workman, Evelyn Dull and Dale Caraffa sold a variety of irresistible pies at Oroville’s Heritage Days on Saturday; right, at the Wauconda Fabulous ‘50s Sock Hop, Dale Olson and daughter Elizabeth were among several hundred that danced the night away; above, another big crowd enjoyed the Truck and Tractor Pulls in Tonasket, where Garrett Parlette (shown) and others put on an impressive show.

for residential and all classes of power users, actual usage has been dropping, further lowering incoming revenues. Retail revenues have dropped 13 percent over projected revenues and wholesale revenues dropped 24 percent. Richard Cuthbert, senior consultant with the firm SAIC, discussed the utility’s current situation and what can be done to keep pace with increased costs and lower revenues. Toward this end the district commissioned a 2010 Equity Management Plan (EMP) and formed a Design Review Panel made up of local power users. “We gathered information from the utility going back over a 10 year period (to draft the study),” said Cuthbert. “We used this to identify the amount the district needs to stay financially sound.” Cuthbert said this amount includes how much it will cost for the district to continue providing service to each of the



OMAK - As this year’s Omak Stampede approaches, Stampede queen Breanna Howell has been both looking back at a summer of experiences that only come with being a rodeo queen, as well as looking forward to some of her biggest events of the year. Howell, of Tonasket, recently returned from one of the West’s preeminent rodeos after spending the July 4 week at the Calgary Stampede. That 10 day event annually draws between 1 and 1.2 million in attendance. “It was massive,” Howell said. “The people up there are absolutely amazing. “The visiting roy-

alty were chauffeured around in a charter bus to a bunch of the events... All the royalty got to watch the rodeo from right up on the rail, which was a lot of fun except we got splattered with mud. Which it’s a rodeo, so you expect that, when but we were all wearing white hats.” She said that it was hard to tell that the city, including the rodeo grounds, had largely been underwater from massive flooding just a week earlier. It put a bit of a damper on attendance, according to organizers, but Howell was impressed with the lack of evidence of the flooding. “You couldn’t tell,” she said. “There were millions of dollars damage done to the zoo, and

there were some water marks on the sides of the buildings, but other than that there was no sign of it. “It was so well cleaned up. They had volunteers come into help out from all over the world. The amount of support was incredible.” Howell didn’t have any competition last fall in her bid to become Miss Omak Stampede. Her lifelong friend Karlie Henneman faced a similar situation in the Miss Tonasket Rodeo competition, but it allowed the two to be able to serve as rodeo queens together after competing against one another in the Tonasket rodeo queen competition the year before.

Breanna Howell (second from left) of Tonasket represented the Omak Stampede at the Calgary Stampede in Alberta, Canada last month. She said that was just one of many experiences she’s had as Miss Omak Stampede that she hopes will encourage other girls to try out for that and other royalty positions this fall. “There were five girls who tried out (in 2011) and Karlie was the runner up, so I was really glad she got it this year,” Howell said.

RESULTS EVENT LOOKS TO KEEP GROWING Roger Sawyer of the Tonasket Comancheros said he thought between 8-900 attended the Truck and Tractor Pulls. “The pros that were there were kind of in awe,” he said. “They said there were more people that pulled here in Tonasket than the last time they pulled in the Kingdome.” Sawyer added that he spoke to a lot of first-time fans that said they’d wished they had known what they’d been missing. “I think a lot of those will be back,” he said. “They wished they’d come to our shows the last couple of years. We got done at about 10:30 and people hung around and looked at the machines for probably another hour and a half afterward.” Mark Peterson of KXLY-TV in Spokane returned to Tonasket to be the event’s MC. “(The Comancheros) would really like to thank the Moonlighters Pulling team, and Mark Peterson, Steve Henjum and Paul Gschiel for flying in, as well as all the pullers who came in from all over the Northwest to participate,” Sawyer said.

Okanogan Valley Life WAUCONDA SOCK HOP

OROVILLE HERITAGE DAYS Oroville’s Heritage Days provided a host of historical exhibitions and activities around town highlighting the city’s colorful history. One of the more popular “exhibits” (hosted by Kinross) was the opportunity to pan for gold at Madeline Wells Park. Below, vintage tractors paraded through town and were on display in front of Prince’s Warehouse .

Though it was hard to get a firm estimate on the Wauconda Sock Hop crowd, several hundred attended the dance as well as the car show earlier in the afternoon. At times it was hard to find an open spot on the floor to get some dancing in.

Gene’s Native Smokes, just south of Oroville on 5 Wards Rd., has installed several gas pumps next to the store. The pumps offer regular gasoline and diesel right now, but owner Gene Nicholson plans to expand by two more pumps in the future and also offer off-road diesel for agricultural use. Paving of the parking lot was being completed last Tuesday for a Wednesday opening for fueling. “The store has been open for three years now so we will probably have some sort of customer appreciation event in the near future to recognize all our loyal customers,” said Nicholson, who invites everyone to stop buy and see the new fueling facility on the east side of Highway 97.

PUD | FROM A1 groups it provides power to. “Wholesale revenue has gone down significantly over the last five years,” said Cuthbert. John Grubich, manager of the public utility, explained that the district used to be able to sell its surplus power that it buys under contract from Douglas County PUD Wells Dam for more than what it pays the Bonneville Power Administration for electricity. However, the district’s traditional customers for this power, like California, have found a cheaper source from plants burning natural gas, which has dropped dramatically in price in the past few years. The EMP features two rate increase scenarios: EMP Option 1 would see a 16 percent increase in rates in both 2013 and 2014, with no increases in the following three years. EMP Option 2 has the rate increasing by 9.5 percent in 2013 and 2014 and by 2.0 percent in the years 2015, 2016 and 2017, with no increases over the following five years. Option 1 would have no minimum Energy Charge (MEC) allowance for

Residential and Small General Customer classes. While Option 2 has a two-year phase out of the Residential and Small General Services MEC allowance. In the second option there would be no change in energy charges for residential for 2013-2018 and no change for Small General Service for 2013-2014. For agricultural customers the PUD would change from a horsepower to a demand charge for Frost Control. The basic charge for Option 1 would go from $35 this year to $40 in 2014 and $45 in 2015. It would be $35 in 2013 and 2014 and $40 in 2015 under Option 2. When asked what staff is recommending to the board, Grubich, said they would prefer the second option as it is more gradual and the impact would be felt less than a nearly 10 percent increase in the first two years. “The worst thing for the district would be to have a sudden rate increase. It is better to do it slowly and that’s why we have this plan spread over ten years,” said Grubich.

Grubich thanked those who sat on the Rate Design Panel who were chosen by the PUD board members. These included Ron Smith, Greg Hamilton, Tom Berschauer, Jeff Brender, Lyle Oberg, Richard Thomason, Greg Moser and Dennis Carlton. The presentation was followed by a question and answer period with questions answered by Cuthbert, Grubich, staff and PUD Commissioners David Womach, Ernie Bolz and Steve Houston. Many people, especially those on fixed incomes, expressed their concern about rate increases. Others wanted to know if the district was living under a budget. “You guys have to take a business approach,” said Craig Verjaska, a local cattleman. The board expects to vote on the final rates at their Wednesday, July 30 meeting, with implementation targeted at September of this year. The EMP and other information regarding the proposed rate increases can be viewed on the PUD’s website at

Oroville awards reservoir bid Discussion of ATV use in town continues By Gary A. DeVon Managing Editor

OROVILLE – Despite all bids coming in over budget, the Oroville City Council has accepted the $557,362 bid for the North End reservoir project from the Bonners Ferry, Idaho firm Pilot West Corp. The bid to build a new reservoir to serve the north end water system, as well as a transmission line to the new U.S. Border Patrol station was awarded at a special meeting of the council held on Friday, July 12. All the bids received were well in excess of the engineer’s estimate and the funds paid by the federal government. The city council held the special meeting to decide whether to reject all the bids, reduce the scope of the project and try again or to proceed with letting the bid. City staff, including Superintendent of Public Works Rod Noel, reported it would take time to pare the project down and would lead to additional expense that might not result in saving the city money. Oroville City Clerk Kathy Jones

presented a barebones financing scenario for the council to consider project since the reservoir would benefit not just the new Border Patrol Station, but all users of the north end water system. Councilman Tony Koepke made a motion to accept Pilot West’s bid and Councilman Walt Hart seconded the motion and it carried. The city meanwhile will continue to discuss some financial recover with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. It was announced at the Tuesday, July 16 council meeting that there probably would be a winter shut down of the project.

ATVs on Oroville Roads Also at the Tuesday meeting, the council revisited whether to allow ATVs and ORVs on city streets and becoming a ATV friendly community. Jones told the council she had a copy of Tonasket’s ordinance which allows ATVs in their community and was willing to continue gathering additional information if the council was interested in adopting an ordinance. However, Mayor Chuck Spieth said he would like to wait and see what connected roads Okanogan County would designate in the Oroville area as connectors to other ATV roadways. Police Chief Clay Warnstaff suggested that if the council adopt an ordinance it should allow use

on every road in the city to avoid creating confusion and enforcement issues on which roads are useable. Clerk Jones was asked to gather further information.

Scenic Byway Signage The Via 97 Scenic Byway has requested additional Hotel/Motel tax funding for their signage project, according to Chris Branch, the city’s representative with the Byway. Branch had discussed this earlier with the Finance Committee and they recommended Branch, Oroville’s director of community development, try to secure funds from all the communities along SR97 from Pateros to Oroville. Jones reported that Branch was able to secure the following: Pateros, $2375; Brewster, $2500; Omak, $5000 and Tonasket, $600, for a total of $10,475. She said that Branch was approaching Okanogan at this time. Since the CanAm Hydroplane Races were cancelled, there is $2000 available to divert towards the signage project, according to Jones. The council would have to approve a budget amendment and that amount, along with bid advertising for the project and some mileage incurred by Branch, should make Oroville’s participation, similar to that of the other gateway to the byway, Pateros.

wanted to be queens together, and we finally got to do it. “I’m really glad didn’t have to run one another again.” As the weather warmed up, the rodeo royalty life took Howell on the road nearly every weekend, sometimes to multiple events, typically with her parents and sister. “May was the busiest month,” she said. “Then, one weekend we had two parades, put in a 21 hour day and then went up to the Methow Rodeo the next day. That was the craziest.” The summer of travel has also strengthened the bond between Howell and her horse, Legs. “He’s taken to following me around the pasture,” she said. “When he sees the trailer he’s right on the fence waiting to go somewhere. He’s been amazing. He’s been through a lot.” Breanna and Legs will have their work cut out for them at the Omak Stampede, Aug. 8-11; she said she’s borrowing a second horse for the weekend so as not to overwork her own. “I’ll be at the arena pretty much the entire time,” she said. “Other rodeos you can sit in the stands. “I’ll be moving cows, putting barrels out for the barrel racing. Kids’ night I will be doing whatever they come up with. Of course I will lead the parade of flags, and there’s the arena run. There’s also the parade, and there will be multiple autograph signings throughout the Omak/ Okanogan area.” New this year will be Patriot Day on the final day of the rodeo. “Veterans can get in free with their VA identification,” Howell said. “We hope to be able to show our appreciation for people that

Breanna Howell and her horse, Legs, will strut their stuff at the Omak Stampede, Aug. 8-11. have served.” Once the Omak Stampede is done, Howell will still have rodeos in Moses Lake, Ellensburg, Pendleton, Ore. and possibly Spokane to attend. From there, she’s moving on to Eastern Washington University in the fall and intends to study photojournalism. “After my first year of college, I may decide to go for Miss Rodeo Washington,” Howell said. “The Stampede Queen is usually strongly encouraged to do that.” Howell said her experience this year has only made her feel stron-

ger about encouraging other girls to try out in this fall’s competition for the 2014 queen. “It is a lot of work, but the memories and places you get to go are worth it,” she said. “The Calgary Stampede, without being the Omak Stampede Queen, I would never have gotten to go there. The people you meet are amazing. You make lifelong friends. “The fundraisers they help you do and support from the community makes it all possible. The Stampede is such a supportive group. They help out any way they can.”

WDFW wants to rehab three lake systems Rehabilitation would include Spectacle Lake

The Gazette-Tribune

OLYMPIA – Spectacle Lake near Loomis is among several lakes in eastern Washington proposed for rehabilitation by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). The WDFW proposal would affect three lake systems in eastern Washington, the Columbia National Wildlife Chain of 14 Lakes in Grant County, Spectacle Lake in Okanogan County and Badger Lake in Spokane County, by the use of Rotenone, to improve fishing opportunity in trout-managed lakes via the elimination of competitor/predator species of fish and to restore fingerling stocking strategy of trout

and kokanee and to also improve wildlife habitat by removal of common carp. Towards that end WDFW prepared a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, or SEIS. The original final SEIS, dated August 1992, was reviewed as a statewide proposal. In Okanogan County’s Spectacle Lake, after the rehabilitation, would have rainbow trout and kokanee planted. In Grant County rehabilitation would take place in Pillar, Snipe, Cattail, Gadwall, Poacher, Lemna, Shoveler, Sago, Hourglass, Widgeon, Upper Hampton, Lower Hampton, Hampton Slough Complex and Marie lakes. They would get rainbow but the lakes will be closed to fishing in 2014 due to Federal Policy and to allow fry plants to mature. In Spokane County Badger Lake would be rehabilitated and rainbow and cutthrout trout will be planted. The agency issued this

Addendum to the final SEIS according to state rules and will not act on this proposal for 21 days from the date of issue. Agencies, affected tribes and members of the public are invited to comment on this proposal. WDFW must receive comments by Aug. 9, 2013. Comments can be submit by email to , through the WDFW SEPA website comment link at http://www. htm, fax to (360) 902-2946, or mail to Bob Zeigler, SEPA/NEPA Coordinator, Regulatory Services Section, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501. The agency asks that commenters provide the name of the proposal in their comment letter.

Adopting a ‘heads LETTERS in beds’ approach TO THE to tourism EDITOR It’s always nice to get out of town for a while, but it’s also nice to get home. Most people probably didn’t even notice I was gone for most of last week – that is unless you were at the city council meeting and saw I was missing or wondered why Brent was taking photos during Heritage Days instead of me. I had the opportunity to attend the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America’s International Rally in Salem, Oregon (about 500 miles from here). It was held a the State Fairgrounds and was a great venue for some 5100 or so participants. The weather was much nicer than it was when it was held in Redmond in 2010 and Salem really made us feel welcome. Although we don’t have the facilities to handle such a crowd, even at the Barter Faire Grounds, this rally proves that motorcyclists are one of the niche groups that Sandy Lorentzen told the Oroville Chamber of Commerce we should be trying to attract. Present company excluded, today’s “biker” is is often retired and/or upper middle class and likes to travel to see new sights. The highlands around Oroville and Tonasket on both sides of the valley have some great riding roads, many of them undiscovered by a large portion of riding public. But those who do know can’t say enough online about making the loop run from say Oroville to Tonasket via Loomis and back or heading up to Chesaw to stop in at the tavern or checking out the museums at Molson Out of going on to journey the backroads. My Mind before While people came from all around the country Gary A. DeVon and Canada to the rally, speaking with fellow ralliers in Salem it was surprising the many different ways people from Washington, Idaho and British Columbia made their way to Oregon and the different routes that they were planning on taking back home. My home group happens to be the Valley BMW Riders, which is mostly made up of riders from the Okanagan Valley, but I’m one of a few Yanks that belongs. They have their own Last Chance Campout at Oroville’s Veterans Memorial Park in mid-October each year and just that small group I believe has a noticeable impact on the economy when they spend their dollars at the local restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations. Lorentzen and Vickie Hinze, owner of the Pastime Bar and Grill, are working to try and get the Run for the Border guys and gals from the Harley Owners Group to stay overnight, rather than heading back to Wenatchee the same day. With 200 to 300 motorcyclists descending on Oroville each May we want to show these people what our areas all about. In addition to fine riding roads we have a great lake parks, museums, hiking trails, fishing holes and much more. “Heads in beds,” and getting people to stay an extra day or two is what we should be working towards when it comes to tourism. It really does come down to trying to get people to spend their dollars in order to make the tourism part of the economy work to our advantage. They’ve learned that lesson in Osoyoos, just north of the border. It’s time we take the lesson to heart and join with them to show people just what makes our region unique Like the Welcome to Oroville sign in the old photo on our newspaper office wall says, come stay “for an hour or a lifetime.”

He should have read our American history

Dear Editor, Steve Dunham (Mandela and Washington -7/18/13) really needs to read some history and expand his knowledge beyond right-wing websites and Fox Noise. Claiming Nelson Mandela was a “Communist” which he never was - he then faults Mandela for failing to renounce a plan to “violently overthrow the South African government” (an oppressive dictatorship). Yet he seems to ignore the fact George Washington was a British Army Officer who turned on his government and led a rebel army of thousands against it! General Washington was successful in “violently” overthrowing his government. For that action he was elected our first President and is “the father of our country.” As is Nelson Mandela for exactly the same reasons. When reading letters like Mr. Dunham’s I am never quite sure if they are spawned by venal hatred for President Obama or just good old fashion racism. At the very least he should read some history - and start with American! William F. Johnston Chesaw, Washington

Helped in time of need Dear Gary, I’d like to thank everyone for assisting me during my time of need. Thanks for the cards and letters and phone calls. I am especially grateful to the ones that bullied me into the ambulance, my children and the ones who made it possible to stay in my own home. Thanks to Boots and Clayton for the yard work they have had done. And for Bonnie and Midge for calling and checking up on me. Beverly Holden Oroville

Whatever you do to the least of his breatheran

Dear Editor, It’s been a year since I last wrote to the community and confess I miss writing. My grandpa Ed Rounds was always so faithful to write in the paper. I believe it gave him comfort being able to share his life and share about who saved him. I too have a hard time containing the freedom I have today. I just want everyone to have the freedom I have, I’m so grateful to love people and all my community. So many of you have made an impact on my life. You may not even know who you are, but most important God knows who you are. One day the motives of our hearts will be revealed and you will be rewarded for helping me and others. It is written in Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the King will say to those on His right, come, you who are blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

75 YEARS AGO: 1938: I was unable to find the issues for the rest of 1938 so this section will be available for the balance of 2013.


July 18th - 25th 1963: In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the First National Bank in Tonasket as invited their customers to a beef barbecue in the city park in Tonasket on Saturday, July 20. Arthur Lund, Chairman of the Board and Ed Workosky Sr., were honored in Seattle at a banquet of the Washington Banker’s Association for all bankers with 50 years experience in the state. A potluck dinner last Saturday, July 6, at Lake Osoyoos State Park, was the beginning of the class reunion of the graduating class of 1943. Thirteen members of the graduating class were on hand at the Kozy Kitchen Kafe, where they were served by a member of the class, now owner of the Kafe, Lawrence Doerr. Those attending were: Dave and Pat (Armstrong) Chittenden, Blanche (Thrasher) Larson, John and Melvina Stell, Bud and Betty (Rhodes) Hubbard, Bill and Mary Helen (Groulx) Smith, Ray and Vivian Wiegingen, Cecil and Marjorie (Byrd) Farrens, Dale and Kathy Parker, Harold and Ethel (Doll) Thompson, Al and Mary Alice (Holcomb) Robinson, Warren and Margaret (Rairdan) Brazle, Bill and Verna Ecklor and Bill and Dorothy (Fassett) Petry. Some 900 orchardists and other farmers are taking an unwanted vacation from changing sprinklers this week following a major break in the main canal of the OrovilleTonasket Irrigation system. The break, which will affect some 75,000 acres in the valley, was first reported about 8 p.m. Monday and involved about 100 feet of concrete flume at the west end of the Oroville Golf Course. Ed Walker, well known citizen of this community, took over the ownership of the

stranger and you invited me in; naked, and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me.” Then the righteous will answer him, saying, “Lord when did we see you hungry and feed you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and come to you?” And the King will answer and say, “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of those Brothers of mine, even the least of them, you did it to me.” With this said I want to say thank you so much. I want to honor you all with the word of my Testimony on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. The celebration will be held at Valley Christian Fellowship located at 142 East Oroville Rd. I am graduating from a wonderful program called Ruth’s House of Hope. This program is a local Ministry Outreach in our community and I’m very grateful for it. I figure we all could use a little hope in this day and age and maybe you’ll let me give back to you what was so freely given to me. I am so happy to be given an opportunity to be a witness to our community. I want to share light and hope and love to everyone. Thank you for planting, watering and speaking life to me. Remember that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. God bless you all. His servant, Sabrina Rounds Oroville

Noticed a discrepancy Dear Editor, In the article in the Thursday, July 13 edition of the Gazette-Tribune titled, “Boiler to be replaced,” in noticed a discrepancy. The story read that CEO Linda Michel individually polled the rest of the board members before authorizing McKinstry to proceed. To clarify: Linda Michel is not a member of the board nor does she direct it, even though it is apparent some think otherwise. As detailed in “RCW Title 70 Public Health and Safety – Section 70.44.070 Superintendent – Appointment – Removal – Compensation,” she was hired by the board, answers to the board and serves at their pleasure. The board answers to the people who elect them. I hope this clears up the apparent confusion on the chain of command at NVH.

ITEMS FROM THE PAST Union Oil Service Station, the first of last week. The station was formerly operated and owned by Bud Brott for the past seven years and is located at the corner of Main and Central. Walker has, for the past several years, been employed as a mechanic at John’s Pontiac. Irrigation schedules were again interrupted this week when two sections the new flume which repaired the break last week, went out again Wednesday morning shutting off the life blood of the valley. Jess Sexson, Secretary of the district, said the water is expected to be running again some time Friday. Weather Wise by Marge Frazier: July 17, 88 degrees maximum and 51, minimum; July 18, 85 and 50; July 19, 88 and 51; July 20, 87 and 49; July 21, 81and 54; July 22, 78 and 59 and July 23, 78 and 48. No precipitation for the period. Grocery prices: 5 - 46 oz. tins tomato juice, $1.00; 2 lb. cheese loaf, $.69; 5 to 7 lb. silver trout, $.49 per lb.; 48 oz. peanut butter, $.89; pork chops, $.69 per lb., tomatoes, $.19 per lb.; fresh, whole grade “A” fryers, $.33; celery, $.09 per lb.

25 Years Ago:

July 21st – 28th, 1988: The Tonasket Town Council took action on the advice of City Attorney, Mick Howe and acting Police Officer in charge on Don Schneider’s recommendation to not accept the county’s latest jail fee proposal. Schneider stated that he had some reservations in relation to the proposed agreement. He feels that the $35 per day prisoner rate is too high for a rural area. And the agreement to pay for medical and/or dental care of the prisoner is not in accordance with the law. The water level in Lake Osoyoos is slightly below the maximum level of elevation allowed by the International Joint Commission, according to Dennis Burton,

David Wolosik Oroville Editor’s Note: The phrase “CEO Linda Michel individually polled the rest of the board members” referred to a paragraph that mentioned that commissioners Lael Duncan and Dick Larson were on the team with other hospital senior leadership and representatives from McKinstry. It was not meant to imply that Michel is one of the board members. She was polling the other board members who were not included on that team. G.A.D.

Deepening isolation Dear Editor, When the European Union recently decided to stop providing monetary assistance to Israeli organizations and institutions located in territories conquered by Israel in its 1967 Six Day War, there was a predictable shriek of disapproval from many of the Jewish State’s important politicians. Prime Minister Netanyahu’s hackles, as one might expect, were raised in indignation. So were those of a variety of Israeli bigshots in the settler movement. All in all, the Europeans’ evident determination to show Jerusalem that they mean business didn’t go down so well among people who have grown used to paying no price at all for violating international law. It is a simple state of fact that the 500,000+ Jewish settlers on the West Bank, in the Golan Heights and in Eastern Jerusalem do not enjoy anything close to legal legitimacy in terms of where they reside now. The European Union’s bluntness in these matters caught Jerusalem off guard, if we judge by the alarmed commentary in Israel’s major media outlets. Occupying military powers, according to the Geneva Convention, cannot legally settle members of their civilian population in areas they have taken by armed force. Israel has been doing just exactly that ever since June of 1967, to the point where it now has an astounding half-million of its citizens lording it over what is undeniably landscape seized in battle by the Israeli Defense Forces. Feisty criticism of the Europeans by Netanyahu, and by other important Israeli leaders, cannot change the legal facts. Israel’s political isolation is deepening. The settlements are the primary reason for this fact. Frank Goheen Camas, Wash. Manager of the Oroville-Tonasket Irrigation District. The IJC set the maximum water storage level for this time of year at 913 ft. elevation. As of Monday, this level was 912.4. For the month of June, 1988, the Okanogan River has an average flow of 4840 cubic feet per second. The long term minimum for the river occurred in June, 1931, when the average flow was 2730 cfs, while in June 1977 it was 3900 cfs; 1986, 10,400 cfs and last year 3620 cfs. Modfications, demanded by area farmers, to the new Oroville-Tonasket Irrigation System, have begun and should be completed by the spring of 1990. The first step is the construction of three large sediment ponds designed to filter out the sand and silt, which have been plaguing farmers and causing their sprinklers to plug and wear out. The first is located at the Bonaparte pumping plant on the Okanogan, south of Tonasket. Over the last year there have been a rash of deaths among the neighborhood dogs and cats here (Oroville) and the prime suspect is intentional poisoning. The list of people whose pets have died has been increasing steadily. “The symptoms before death always seem to have the same, violent convulsions and then death,” said Lana Williams, who lost her dog, Clipper, last July. Several other dogs in the Boundary Point area have suffered the same fate. A coyote was reportedly also found dead in the same area and strychnine is suspected. The Board of Directors of Tonasket School District met at a special hearing last Monday, July 25, and approved a 1988-89 general fund budget of $4,021,000. This figure represents a 10 percent or $366,500 increase over last year. The budget is based on an estimated full time enrollment of 990 students for grades K-12. A contract for the merger between the North End Water Users system and Oroville’s water system was submitted to the Council. According to council persons Dennis Wilder and Susan Christensen, who have been negotiating with North End representatives, the request for service to 400 customers, exceeds the 250275 previously agreed to and further study was needed.

sweet we just cut wedges from it and eat it with a sprinkle of salt. This happened because he reads my column. I sincerely thank him and his truck was hardly out of the drive way until I had bread in the toaster and fixed a tomato sandwich... and that was for my breakfast. I wonder if tempers have cooled a bit, since the tree removal of the big, old trees on the east side of the elementary school. I have no comment. And those who oppose the renewal of Enloe Dam probably were disgruntled when learning of the permit being given for 50 years. All I know is when I came here the dam was functioning, (serving Oroville with power, so we were told) and the fish were swimming over it and the road to get to the dam was very scary to this Missouri hillbilly that was used to flat roads. Right or wrong I guess it will proceed…after many more permits are issued and denied.

To choose a ripe cantaloupe, look for a bright area around the stem and use your nose to detect the aroma. In a ripe crenshaw melon, the pale yellow skin evens out as it ripens and it becomes smooth to the touch. If it is greenish and wrinkly, allow more time to ripen. I always just ask Fred to choose for me and he never misses. The crenshaw taken to a picnic on Sunday was perfectly ripe and as sweet as candy.
