TONASKET - With the North Valley Hospital District Board of Commissioners moved from its normal Thursday date to Monday, June 9, the agenda was a bit shorter than usual. However, of particular note was the fact that the hospital’s debt to Okanogan County has been reduced to $141,677 (as of Monday afternoon), down about $200,000 from the previous board meeting 10 days earlier. Administrator Linda Michel said that union negotiations had concluded, although the new contract had yet to be voted on. “We’re glad we’re done,” Michel said. “They went well. They were tiring days and tense at times, but we got through it. As soon as they vote on it, June 17-18, we’ll bring the details back here
(to report).” The commissioners also heard reports from Human Resources director Jan Gonzales, who discussed the costs of a high turnover rate and said that North Valley Hospital’s turnover rates have reduced significantly in the past five years and in most areas are below (better than) the national average. The board also heard a pharmacy quality report from NVH pharmacist Mike Harshberger, who discussed medication safety and procedures for monitoring, tracking and disposing of expired medications.

Planning to expand July 4th fireworks event Several projects in Oroville coming to completion BY GARY A. DEVON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE – Clyde Andrews, Oroville Chamber of Commerce president, discussed the plans for an expanded Community Fireworks Display at the Oroville City Council meeting Tuesday, June 3. “First of all we are requesting the use of Deep Bay Park for this year’s July 4th fireworks display,” Andrews said. “While Dane Forester has been organizing for many years, he’s tired. He’s still willing to help organize the fireworks themselves and shoot them off... he’s tired.”
In addition to helping raise money to cover costs of the show, Andrews said the Chamber wants to expand the show to include other activities, like a patriotic song contest and decorated boat parade. “We are hoping to have a bigger display too... last year there was something like $5000 and $1500 of that went to insurance. We are trying to raise nearly $10,000, but we don’t want to go over $10,000 because that puts us into another license category,” the Chamber president said. Andrews said the Chamber has discussed other ways to raise money including charging for parking at the park and rental of the picnic shelters. “These and possibly having more vendors could provide a little extra cash for next year’s event,” said Andrews.

Oroville Ambulance Coordinator Debra Donahue and EMT Jackie McDaniels demonstrate the ease with which patients can be loaded and unloaded from Oroville’s new ambulance using the power gurney. The demonstration took place following the Tuesday, June 3 meeting of the Oroville City Council.
After some discussion about whether the covered shelters could be rented or auctioned off by Mayor Chuck Spieth and the council, it was decided that since the Chamber was reserving the entire park on the Fourth of July they could also raise money using the park facilities. “I think it would be fine if the city waived the park use fees and allowed the park to be reserved and used for fund raising,” said Councilman Ed Naillon.
PROJECT REPORTS Oroville Public Works Superintendent Rod Noel reported that the tank for the North End Reservoir Project has been completed and that the water will just need to go through water purity certification. The reservoir was constructed to increase reliability in Oroville’s north end water

system which serves businesses and residences north of the city limits on the west side of Osoyoos Lake. The water system is being upgraded because of the new U.S. Border Patrol Station and most of the funding for the reservoir is being paid for using federal funds.
“The tank looks well put together and it looks like the project will be completed midmonth. All that has to be done before it can be used is to cut into the main line,” said Noel. “That’s good news... it’s been a long time coming,” said Mayor

Oroville soph wins spot on Youth Tech Camp Team Sammie Walimaki selected for Summer Program in Panama
Tonasket Outreach students visited the Chewelah Peak Learning Center May 15-16.
Tonasket Outreach visits Chewelah Peak Submitted by Carol Lanigan Tonasket Outreach School
TONASKET - Middle and high school Outreach Friday School students went on an exciting field trip to Chewelah Peak Learning Center on May 15 and 16. After a three hour bus ride, we arrived at the beautiful campus and set our belongings in the dormitory. Then we were off to lunch at the dining hall. Everyone was anxious to begin our activities and soon after lunch, we went on a 3
mile hike with campus director, Patrick Sawyer. We learned to identify different trees along the way and enjoyed being outside on a warm, spring afternoon. After our hike, Bill Barnes met with us to do some team building activities. Students had to learn to work together and listen to their teammates. This was more challenging than expected, but we managed to meet our goal. That evening after dinner, we played basketball and Frisbee and sat around the campfire eating S’mores and listening to music.
The next morning we did some leadership surveys to see what kind of leaders we had in our group. The results were very interesting. We learned that there are four types of leaders and that it is good to have a variety of leadership styles in any group. Then we were off to the Challenge Course, but before we could do any challenge activities, we had to prove that we could trust each other and would be there to support each other. The Challenge Course was super fun. Students had to prob-
lem solve and work together to complete the tasks which included climbing a cable spool that was elevated several feet off the ground, walking a tight rope 3 feet off the ground, and walking on a set of 5 different cables that were attached to trees. We managed to get at least one of the team to the finish line after helping each other along and supporting each other. Then off to lunch and onto the bus to return home. Our adventure to Chewelah Peak was fun and engaging as well as a learning experience we will never forget.

jack black | FROM A1 hotel, and be Jack Black’s guest on the “Goosebumps” movie set. “He kind of asked what he needed to do,” Linda Black said. “I just told him to treat them like he does his dad and I. When we go down, we hang out in his trailer. He goes to the makeup place. Roz, his hair designer, has been with him since he was 19 or 20, is someone we think of as a family member. So when they get to meet Roz, that’s a really personal thing. “Plus the eating is great, with assistant directors running around feeding you.” The contest runs through June 23. Black and Stangland are hoping the money brought in through the fundraiser are enough to get the ball rolling more quickly for the swimming pool project. “On July 9, we begin digging no matter what,” Black said, noting that there is still work being done by the city to upgrade the lift station at Chief Tonasket Park, part of which will be paid by the spray park project. “We’re starting then regardless of where that’s at.” “Hopefully this Omaze
thing will give us a jump start.” Stangland said. “When people realize how expensive the pool will be, they’re pretty shocked. Then they are hesitant to donate, say, $25,000. But it cost us $20,000 just to get an engineering design. “When my dad died he talked to Mayor (Patrick) Plumb about the pool. ...He gave money for the pool and there were a few other fundraisers earmarked for the pool. I wanted to respect that and get the ball rolling, make it happen. But it is a long project.” The water ranch will end up costing about $250,000 with minimal maintenance costs. The pool is estimated to be about $1.5 million to build plus another $4050,000 a year to maintain. “If we don’t come close to raising about $1 million, we can’t even apply for grants until 2016,” Stangland said. “We will have to keep raising money however we can and then apply for matching grants.” “We’ve supported the water ranch, but a lot of the communication around town ... if you had fundraising for both at the same
time it might be a nightmare. We might be butting heads all around town. So we backed off a bit and decided to work on this together.” If it seems like it will be years before a pool can be built, with grants not even available to be applied for for another two years ... well, it is. Which is why Black has been working for the past two years to get the spray park built, both to serve as a “bridge” to the pool at a fraction of the cost as well as provide a new recreational opportunity in Tonasket. And, she notes, it’s already provided some benefits. Thanks to a Community Foundation grant, new signage is popping up - a the new Tonasket welcome sign at the north end of town, built by Kurt Haskin, as well as a new sign for Chief Tonasket Park that will highlight all of the park’s activities (and make it much easier for visitors to find). “We just need people to come together for projects that benefit the community,” Stangland said. “It all goes hand in hand. People want good schools, good doctors, good recreation for their kids. It all keeps the community vibrant.”
nvh | FROM A1 Cariker said that the Department of Ecology, while on site for a routine inspection, determined that the corrosion protection system on one of the tanks no longer passed tests and required repair. Because an emergency repair was required, Cariker said, the commissioners were polled by phone for approval of the project. Cariker said that there had not been any fuel leaks. Also the backup generator that had been shipped to Spokane for repair has been reinstalled and tested, he said.
VA Clinic Director of Ancillary Services Noreen Olma reported that the Veterans Administration clinic currently had 710 patients in its system. “We continue to bring in new patients monthly,” Olma said in her written report. “But (we) also continue to lose patients due to circumstances we cannot control, (such as) death, relocation, and means tests.” Olma also reported that first
quarter customer surveys indicated 100 percent of time patients surveyed their rooms as clean. Also, she noted that NVH’s Imaging Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. Business Development Coordinator Terri Orford reported that she and VSO Shane Barton were working together to reach out to area veterans to ensure they were informed of the clinics services. “We created a short survey asking our VA Clinic Vets how they heard about our services (i.e. radio, newspaper, etc), whether they had suggestions on how to reach out to Veterans, what we do well and what we can improve on in our clinic,” Orford said in her written report. “We will be handing these surveys out to every patient in the VA Clinic
for the next three months, collect the data, and determine how to proceed.”
Long Term Care Long Term Care director Linda Holden said that a DSHS complaint investigator visited the facility in April in regards to the call light system. The system in the west wing was recently installed after several months of using temporary measures. “We are never informed what prompts the visit,” she wrote. “The investigator reviewed our documentation related to residents’ falls before the system was complete and reviewed the various safety plans we had in place when the system was out. “The paper documentation related to our safety rounds and plans amounted to eight inches of paper in 3, 3 ring binders. The surveyor left satisfied that we were on track with the call light safety plan as well as the individualized care plan for residents.” The Board of Commissioners next meet on Thursday, June 26.
Lake Osoyoos rises as runoff increases Washington State operations help maintain lake levels for many uses
levels can fluctuate into early July depending on snowpack, explained Al Josephy, an environmental planner with Ecology. Ecology seeks to maintain the water level between 911.5 and 912 feet from May 1 to Sept. 15, but occasionally there’s a chance for flooding when snowmelt and runoff are high. “We have the gates of the dam wide open right now, trying to keep the lake at our target level,” Josephy said. Sometimes the lake rises beyond 913 feet and rarely reaches as high as 915 feet, causing temporary flooding. Lake Osoyoos is fed from Okanagan Lake in Canada. Making room for snow runoff in the upper watershed puts pressure on smaller Lake Osoyoos. Water also backs up below the dam when the much larger
YAKIMA – Due to rising temperatures and spring runoff, water levels in Osoyoos Lake are rising. In some years, this can result in temporary flooding on properties around the lake. The lake straddling the British Columbia and Washington border near Oroville, serves as a source of water for irrigation and summer recreation in both the U.S. and Canada. The Washington Department of Ecology regulates lake levels at Zosel Dam in Oroville. Lake
Similkameen River joins the Okanogan River below Oroville during spring snowmelt, Josephy said. This makes managing spring runoff difficult throughout the system. Lake levels are mandated by the International Joint Commission (IJC), a board made up of representatives from the United States and Canada. For more information on the operation of Zosel Dam or Lake Osoyoos, contact Al Josephy at Ecology at 360-4076456. Additional information on the International Osoyoos Lake Board of Control and the new Order of Approval can be found at http://ijc.org/boards/iolbc/. To track the progress of lake levels in “real-time,” as well as find additional information, go to the U.S. Geological Survey web page for Osoyoos Lake.
Council | FROM A1 is a penalty of $500 a day that the city could collect. Noel also reported on the Central and Cherry Street Project which replaces a water line, as well as repaves portions of the two streets. “I’m sure everyone is getting tired of Central and Cherry being torn up, but I can say that the project is on schedule,” Noel reported. “They had 10 or 12 trucks lined up with hot asphalt when there was a cloudburst that hit right while they were on Fir and Central. When it stopped raining they were able to get things dried out and it didn’t seem to stop them.” Noel explained that the reason why the parking areas on both sides of the streets were paved first, leaving the center part unpaved. He said that because federal funds were used in the project, a more durable, and more expensive, mix of asphalt was necessary in the travel lanes. The extra cost of the different material will increase the price of the project by about $7500 which will be born by the city. “In reality we haven’t paid much for the project,” said Clerk
Kathy Jones. “Just the water side... the street side has been paid for 100 percent through the grant,” said Noel, adding, “They are scheduled to be finished paving on Thursday (June 5) and have the entire project substantially finished by the end of the week,” he said.
Dorothy Scott Airport Airport Services Manager Steven Johnston reported that the airport has been busy. He said it probably will become more busy even as much of it will need to be closed down due to the planned $785,800 FAA/State Aeronautics Airport Project planned for later this summer. “It will become complicated because of the helicopters that are used to dry off the cherries and because there is a new cherry worm from China which will mean increased spaying,” said Johnston. “Fire season in Alaska has already started as well.” Johnston said the airport will be kept open for rotary wing aircraft for agriculture and fire season during the construction. He also requested that the city sweep the runway because he had
a turbo prop KingAir airplane land twice and sand and other materials are hard on that aircraft’s props.
Other Business Oroville Ambulance Coordinator Debra Donahue received permission to add Tosha Robinson to to EMT list. She also reported that she was excited about the implementation of high performance CPR in the region. She said that she and fellow EMT Paul Bouchard had got to the Methow to become trainers. “For rural counties it will make a big difference in survival rates,” she said. Donahue also reported that MedStar Air Ambulance now had a base in Brewster. “We had a Marion Creek patient and they landed near the School House Museum. The timing worked out really well. It is a good thing for our communities to have them based in Brewster,” she said. Following adjournment, the mayor and several council members followed Donahoe across the street to get a closer look at the new ambulance.

THE TOWN CRIER
A battle of the special interests
Okanogan County has been without a current Comprehensive Plan for a long time; the latest plan dates back to 1964. Although there’s a large faction that would like to see things return to what were surely simpler times, we need a new Comprehensive Plan to see us into the future. While resources – timber, agriculture, mining - remain a big part of our economy, other things are starting to become part of the mix. Things like recreation and tourism – in 1964 we were more geared to slogans like “Visit the Sunny Okanogan.” We’re still the Sunny Okanogan, but how we invite people here now is like comparing the rotary phones of 1964 to today’s smart phones. Many of those we invite now decide they want to stay. To accommodate them we have things like high speed internet, allowing people to do their jobs from hundreds of miles away from the office– why wouldn’t they Out of want to live here while doing them? These new citizens often have different ideas My Mind about the way things should be. They aren’t thinkGary A. DeVon ing in terms of mining, timber and cattle, or even llamas. And while a faction would like to see us return to 1964, even 1894, or at least they think they would, our world keeps on changing and we need to have a plan in place that will help us see our way through this century, not the last. That’s what all the regional meetings throughout the county were supposed to be about. They were supposed to be a way to find out just what should be included in the new Comprehensive Plan by listing to everyone’s ideas. The Gazette-Tribune covered several of the meetings that were in our area, but all that work was thrown out. Some were claiming the plan taking shape was being swayed by the special interests. Of course it was special interests, albeit other factions, who said what was being formed wouldn’t work for our county. They volunteered to rewrite the plan to their own interests and basically that’s what we got. However, another set of special interests, in the form of the Methow Valley Citizens’ Council and Futurewise are appealing one of the county’s decisions regarding the newest draft of the plan and the related term “Interim” Zoning Ordinance. The county says the plan does not require an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). These groups say to adequately inform decision-makers and the public of resulting impacts to the environment an EIS needs to be done. Before we wrote about these groups’ appeal in last week’s paper we asked County Commissioner Jim DeTro for a comment, but it was close to deadline and he just missed getting back to us in time. He has since responded, but unfortunately he’s not allowed to say much. He said that although the Comp Plan is a legislative matter, the appeal is brought by individual parties which moves it into the quasi-judicial format. As such he could offer no comment other than acknowledgement of the appeal and that a hearing will be set at a future date to consider it. Special interest groups have their place, whether it be the Okanogan County Farm Bureau or the Methow Valley Citizens’ Council. We all have our own special interests. However, any new Comprehensive Plan can’t be only one thing, just like no one of these groups, not one person is all one thing. Any plan has to represent all the county’s citizens. So that means no one is ever going to be fully satisfied. Like their predecessors I do not envy the commissioners’ position when it comes to trying to satisfy everyone with a new Comp Plan, nor do I envy Planning Director Huston. However, whatever the final decision, the plan can not be geared to just one group – it must take into account that we are a different county than we were forty years ago and probably will be in another 10 years. Hopefully by then we will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of our Comprehensive Plan, not it’s 50th.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Rep. Doc Hasting votes against jobs Dear Editor, I wish ‘Doc’ Hastings would have listed out the dozens of “pro-growth bills” he and his colleagues supported to create good paying jobs for the Class of 2014. The Seattle Times runs an interesting feature every Sunday showing the voting record for each Congress member on each major vote taken that week. I faithfully read it. Maybe “support” means something different to the Congressman than “voted for” because without exception he has voted against any meaningful job creation bill that has come before the house. And has done so for years. To add insult to injury a few weeks back he voted to kill a house bill that would have not
only financed 27 new VA facilities but helped finance the education costs for thousands of veterans. Also as election time rolls around I would suggest Okanogan County voters check the Times to see what your congressman is really doing. I might also suggest the Okanogan County Democratic Party pick up a copy every week as well. Might help you to run better elections if you had the information. William Johnston Chesaw

Encourage all to attend school concerts
Dear Editor, What a beautiful show Mr. Stiles, the Middle School and High School students performed last week. I was surprised to find that the bleachers were sparsely occupied. This was my first time coming to see the students perform. It was impressive! The students and Mr. Stiles had put a lot of effort into the program! I would like to encourage everyone to attend future performances whether or not they have a student participating in a band. It was a joy to see our young talented musicians perform. I am looking forward to attending future programs. Teresa Fast Oroville

years in our federal government have made me change my mind. The retirement of Doc Hastings, who demonstrated his support of his constituents and American principles calls to all of us to find and support a replacement that will carry on Doc’s efforts. George Cicotte is such a person. George is an energetic advocate for much of what we hold dear: the Constitution, a balanced budget, a reasonable health care program that is simple enough to work, a real by-partisan effort in our Congress to achieve a better country for all Americans. George is a family man (7 kids), past president of our Rotary club, an attorney specializing in health-care issues and works with a number of agricultural companies (enhancing his knowledge of ag issues). Most important: George listens, something really lacking in D.C. I’m voting for George to represent me, as Doc did, in Congress. Larry Towner Kennewick, Wash.
Ban Seattle bicyclists In Vietnam we periodically held festive “Mad Minutes”. The entire perimeter of guard bunkers on a base larger than Omak/Okanogan would blaze away for a solid minute to dispose of out-of-date ammunition. Hundreds of rifles, shotguns, pistols, grenade launchers and heavy machine guns thundered at once. At night this made for a stunning display of tracer streaks and explosions but the single word that came to mind was ... loud. Bill Slusher Then there was Mt. St. Helen’s in 1980. Nonetheless, it positively staggers the collective mind of humankind to conceive of anything in the known universe louder than what you would hear from greater Seattle and its ilk if a certain event occurred. Imagine the din that would ensue if a group of Okanogan Countians divined themselves the omniscient keepers of everything and thus sashayed to Seattle to demand that their roads be closed to... bicyclists. Suppose these meddlers in another region’s business waxed righteously about how dangerous it was to operate bicycles on Seattle public roads. Suppose these non-cycling outsiders argued that since a microscopic minority of bicyclists rode on sidewalks, blew red lights and rode on private property it was somehow necessary to bar all bicyclists from all Seattle streets with speed limits under 35 mph. Suppose those OK Countians were incensed at the refusal of Seattle to heed their royal edicts and brought a lawsuit to force servitude. Just imagine the cacophonous crescendo of ‘mind-your-own-business!’ howls that would ensue from the greater Seattle concrete tribes.
They’d rival all my dogs en masse when the Riverside fire siren goes off. Yet, Bellingham’s liberal political front, Conservation Northwest, and a klatch of Methow Valley soul mates are as we speak attempting the same meddlesome interference in Okanogan County affairs. These folk are effectively wailing that climate change calamity will pale to insignificance compared to the world ending havoc of allowing ATV’s to be operated on Okanogan County roads speed limited under 35 mph. Through their attorney henchmen these deep-pocket (met any cheap lawyers?) megameddlers contrive an endless list of ‘safety’ and other concerns, but let’s face it. In the end it all boils down to simple, sour, shameful ... bigotry. The anti-ATV klan openly despises the motorized recreation group for the microminority thereof who sometimes illegally ride OFF road on some public and private property. So they get frantic revoking everyone’s right, county-wide, to a broadened popular activity they don’t happen to like. It is in no way whatsoever different in human theme than one religion wishing to ban another for its perceived heretical activities. Keep in mind, we’re only talking about county roads which are ... already ... being driven on daily by everything from motorcycles to mini-vans to trailer trucks. And bicycles. Safety is a laughably contrived pretext. ATV’s are usually smaller and lighter than motorcycles and go slower. To be used on public roads the state requires that ATVs be equipped with lights, mirrors and horns, and that they bear expensive license plates and be driven only by licensed car drivers. Unlike with cars, the state even demands that ATV riders obtain costly inspections of their vehicles. Clearly the only ‘safety’ remotely at risk is that of the ATV riders, and they’ll take their
chances like Seattle bicyclists. None of us want ATVers (or mountain bikers, hikers, jeepers, horses or anyone else) trespassing private property or degrading our public lands. We get that. Public land is every bit as much ours as it is that of urban elitists who seem to think otherwise, and we revere it just as much. But this is America, not North Korea. Let those who actually break laws pay the price therefor. There is zero justification for trying to penalize an entire class of lawful, tax-paying citizens who ride ATVs because a tiny few of them occasionally ride irresponsibly. (Memo to the anti-ATV klan: Do you ... really ... think the few abusers are suddenly going to respect public/private land because you make them haul their ATVs to the accesses on trucks and trailers instead of riding their ATV’s there? Want to buy an Amish Learjet?) As with all bigotries, this anti-ATV attack is about hatred of something different not understood, enjoyed or shared by groups who regard themselves superior, and thus it has no business in moral human affairs. With a growing legion of aging (and voting) American baby boomers finding ever more need for our ATVs to enable us to enjoy our outback county and its activities, as well as use them on our road-divided ranches, this is no time to permit the bigotry of outsiders to become the standard for our laws. Ride your ATV (or horse, jeep, bicycle or just walk) to the commissioner’s hearing room in Okanogan June 16th at 3pm, and tell our commissioners ... and the meddling outsiders ... that very reality. William Slusher’s latest novel is a bipartisan Pacific Northwest political comedy: CASCADE CHAOS, or, How Not To Put Your Grizzly In The Statehouse. williamslusher@ live.com
Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune | JUNE 12, 2014
Okanogan Valley Life Container gardening: Like the results, not the work I think I have come to the finish of my gardening (in pots). I do not like the job but like the end results. A true gardener enjoys digging, planting and all that goes with it. I do not. Never did. Probably never will. Too old to change now, and the short time that I was outside the mosquitoes found me. Don’t like them either! It looks as if the majority of the work is finished on Central Ave. Nice new blacktopping and all kinds of good things underneath. New water pipes so there shouldn’t be any leaks for a good long time. So graduation day has come and gone. Now we have a bunch of kids wondering what to do with themselves, however some know and are anxious to get on to the next phase of their life. Tonasket school had quite a gathering at the Rodeo grounds and those that wish have their party there, with a huge barbecue and hamburgers and hot dogs are cooked, then assorted salads and
desserts are provided potluck style to those attending. Large tents were set up, in case of inclement weather, with the graduate having a smaller covered area for showing their personal memento’s. It’s a very nice community affair, or so it seems to me. The new sign, at the south entry into town, pertaining to the museum is a nice addition. Good job Connelly Quick! The town has benefited from a number of other senior projects. It is always good seeing how well family functions are attended by the Sawtell/Ripley families. Doreen (Ripley) and Chris Cleman’s third girl, Kathyrn, was among the Tonasket graduates with aunts, uncles and cousins coming from Spokane and Canada as well as many local family members and friends. Marilyn (Sawtell) Toth, Canada, is still receiving treatments of chemo and radiation, and is still ahead of the game. She’s a trouper and doesn’t give up. It was good to see Ray and Vicki
Attwood and have a chat with them. Our ages are such that it sometimes takes all of us to come up with a name from the past but eventually (sometimes) we come up with it, if no one is in a big hurry. I try and not use the word “hate” too often, but I really do hate thunder, especially sudden bursts of it, when I have sorta dosed off, like happened one evening last week, and was suddenly aroused by such a terrific clatter of noise that for a moment or two, I thought I was in Missouri, where it’s a common occurrence. When the “Dollars for Scholars” program was started, (now with a name change) but for the same purpose, for helping worthy high school students to further their college educations, a goodly number of foundations were formed by local and sometimes not local families. One such, was started by the children of Philip and Yulah Schlief, Molson pioneer family, with a sizable amount

Market can be a good source of income Suzanne Dailey Howard Tonasket Farmers’ Market
Last week we learned how shopping at Tonasket Farmers’ Market can be good for your health. Now we’ll explore ways in which it can increase wealth. The first obvious benefit is to the vendors; the farmers, crafters and bakers who bring their wares to market benefit directly from their sales. To many of them, it is a major source of their income. They have spent months buying seed, planting, and watering or buying yarn and crafting. Now they wait in faith of labor’s rewards. Gail Hogan, of Gopher Ridge Farm said income from the market is a big part of her family’s budget. She features fresh butter head lettuce, eggplant and pepper plants, along with herbal soaps and healing lotions. Try her pep-
TONASKET MARKET REPORT permint glycerin soap for a clean and awake experience. She gave two bits of advice “Live simply, eat fresh, and you will never be poor, you will eat like kings.” Looking for a hostess gift last week, Babe’s Towels caught my eye. Babe Saulsbury crochets hanging towels and dish and jar scrubbers. She says creating for the market keeps her busy. I found a set of towels with a sunflower theme for my friend Bernie, who loves to paint sunflowers. Wouldn’t you know it, in a booth across from Babe, I found a sunflower scented candle to add to the gift. Sasha Jones sells her “Cha Cha Candles,” many of which are scented with essential oils. Her candles are soy based and clean burning, and have proven to me to be a real value for the
money. Are you a gardener with a green thumb? Are you an artistic and enthusiastic crafter? Then perhaps you’d like to try your hand at market vending. Stop and see Margie Anderson, Market Manager, or call her at (509) 4290887 and learn how. If you join the market family, you can also help your family budget, while enjoying great camaraderie. Finally, shopping at your local farmers’ market increases the wealth of your community. Several years ago Tonasket Chamber of Commerce promoted a “Buy Local” campaign. Forgive me if I am quoting this incorrectly, but I believe they told us that one dollar spent locally increases the local economy by seven-fold. It works on the principle that your dollar spent with Farmer Joe is in then spent at a local feed store, which then pays it to a local employee, who spends it at a local restaurant, etc. So increase your wealth and that of your community, shop Tonasket Farmers’ Market. See you at the market!

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the sellerâ€™s and buyerâ€™s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the sellerâ€™s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a cord by visualizing a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To make a firewood complaint, call 360902-1857. agr.wa.gov/inspection/ WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx

NORTH VALLEY - A blonde Black bear trundled by the celebration of the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area’s 75h anniversary celebration last Saturday, which served the purposes of one Charles Bartlebaugh quite nicely. Bartlebaugh, who said he was invited by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to attend the event both last weekend and this Saturday and Sunday, represents the Be Bear Aware campaign. “There’s increasing numbers of Grizzly bears moving throughout the state,” Bartlebaugh said. “There have been more official sightings, mostly along I-90 between Spokane and Missoula.

Katherin Anna Tracy
Katherin Anna (Sherling, Sutton) Tracy peacefully passed on May 30, 2014 at North Valley Extended Care in Tonasket. Katherin was born in Oroville, Washington on July 10, 1919 to Ernest and Emma Sherling of Molson. It was in the Highlands that Kay spent her younger years and started school at Lone Star on Mary Ann Creek, traveling to and from by horseback. By third grade the Sherling family moved into Molson to be closer to school. During the Depression the family moved to the valley for work, living in Mallot then to Omak where Kay attended High School and graduated in 1938, receiving the Honorable Citizenship Award. At the age of six, her father purchased an upright piano for Kay and her mother taught her the basics… the rest is history. She played for income, dances, programs, weddings, funerals, enjoyment for others and pleasure, playing until a stroke ended it at 94 years old. Music was a BIG part of her life. After graduation Kay married Bill Sutton on Dec. 26, 1938 in Omak. They lived there until after Sharron was born in December of 1939. After moving to the Molson area to farm with family, Michael Dean was born in January of 1943. Relocating to Chesaw, another son, Steve, was born in 1945. Soon they moved to Dwinnel Orchards near Oroville and Danny Lee came along in 1947. Then it was again to Chesaw where she and Bill had a small dairy, soon back to Oroville. Kay went to work full time, from restaurant work, clerking, thinning/picking and sorting apples, and her favorite was a day care business. With the four children, she and Bill moved to Almira in 1954. The opportunity to run a small café was available and with that experience she moved on to be a cook at the Almira Hotel. Almira was good to her family because there was always work for her and all of the kids. Another move... this time Grand Coulee, where all three boys would graduate from GCHS. Now that the family was raised she could pursue her dream of becoming a teacher. At age 47 she started college, earned her BA in Education
Kay Tracy at 50 and taught fourth grade in Oroville for ten years. Next to the joy of her own children were those in her classroom. She was respected, competent, caring, and happy in her vocation. Education was vitally important to her and desired for her children. During her teaching years she designed and helped build a cozy log house with the help of her family. Through necessity she accomplished many skills and always looked at the positive side. Her homes though sometimes humble were always inviting and open to many; friends, family, or those in need. Following retirement Katherin married Glenn Tracy Jr. in 1979 and again she moved many more times first following his employment and then for pleasure, from coast to coast and Alaska. Kay loved flying and enjoyed two trips to Germany and other European countries. Eventually they returned to settle near Oroville and started skiing at age 65. Excitement of the first heavy snowfall brought them to the slopes. It soon became their passion and for many years they enjoyed it. After Tracy passed she moved to Tonasket and lived at the North Valley Assisted Living for ten years where the residents and staff became an important part of her life. Kay is survived by her daughter, Sharron (Geral) Cox of Tonasket; son Steve (Marsha) Sutton of Soap Lake; stepsister Darlene (Hank) Allen of Oroville; step-son Jeff Tracy of Petersburg, Alaska; five grandchildren, one great grandson, three step-grandchildren, plus nieces and nephews She was preceded in death by husbands Wesley (Bill)
