RACING ON THE LAKE
Ramsey steps down after more than eight years BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
TONASKET - Eight and a half years proved to be enough for Tonasket Council Member Jean Ramsey. The longest-serving current council member offered her resignation at the Tuesday, June 24, meeting, effective at the end of June. Ramsey, who had to be cajoled into running for office last fall, said she “no longer had the time or heart” to continue. “I continue to appreciate each and every one involved in the running of our city more and more every day,” she read in her statement of resignation. “There is no doubt in my mind that all of you both elected and staff have only the city’s best interests for the future first and foremost in every decision you make.” The city will advertise for applicants to be appointed to fill her position, which will be reviewed at the July 22 meeting. “I appreciated having her as a resource to remember what’s gone on in the past,” said Mayor Patrick Plumb. “ Brent Baker/staff photo

NVH, union settle contract BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
TONASKET - In a sign of the North Valley Hospital District’s improving financial situation, the hospital’s union employees will be receiving step increases and other improvements in the threeyear contract approved the NVH Board of Commissioners at their Thursday, June 26, meeting. The commissioners approved a $3 million package that the UFCW Local 21 recently ratified, representing an overall increase in $1 million in wages and benefits. “When I came here we weren’t giving the employees (anything) but a two percent cost of living increase because of our debt,” said NVH Administrator Linda Michel. “We told the employees when our finances got manageable we’d be more competitive. They hung in there with us, and I think this contract reflects that commitment. “We’ll have to cut some costs elsewhere, because a million dollars a year is a lot of money,” she added later. “But they didn’t get everything they asked for. We feel what we gave was the right thing to do; our employees are our most valuable asset.” The contract affects Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, office and clerical workers, service and maintenance workers and clerical workers. Some of the significant changes included: • annual step increases in addition to cost of living adjustments; • a one percent match into employees’ retirement plans for those who have contributed their own funds for at least one year of continuous service (something that was done before NVH began having financial difficulties); • a number of modifications to the extended illness bank (EIB) including (1) access to EIB hours if admitted to the hospital; (2) in exchange for the aforementioned retirement account match, retirement payout of leftover EIB hours
for existing employees serving 20 years or more will be reduced to 50 percent and not paid out for newly hired employees; • NVH will continue to pay 88 percent of employees’ health insurance, though a cap to that amount was removed; • and for shift differential pay only, shift times were adjusted to cover 7 p.m.7 a.m. and 7 a.m.-7 p.m. “We’ll have our midnight shift differential from 7 p.m.-7 a.m., though (that won’t start) for one year,” Michel said. “So we upped the night shift and weekend differentials. “The main concern was midnight nursing, because we always have trouble recruiting nurses anyway. I think the incentives will help retain some nurses.” She said that the hospital district declined to include its per diem (under 16 hours a week) employees. “(The union) wanted to add the per diems into the contract and make them union members,” Michel said. “None of our per diems have requested becoming union members and unless they took a vote, I wasn’t willing to do that.”
FINANCES Chief Financial Officer Helen Verhasselt reported on the state of the district’s finances. The warrants had dipped to under $83,000 the previous day, though Thursday’s payroll payment had pushed them back up to about $295,000. “There’s two large payments that should be coming in before then end (of June),” Verhasselt said. “We won’t be OUT out yet,” Michel said. “We’ll probably go in and out for six months, but (for now) we’ll take being out for even an hour.” Additionally, Patient Financial Services Director Jana Symonds said that a Medicare payment of $98,000 was being temporarily withheld for no discernible reason. “We’ve made four calls in to provider outreach to get some answers,” Symonds

There will be fireworks and more on Independence Day at Deep Bay Park.
Full day July 4 at Deep Bay Park Oroville Community Fireworks not the only highlight BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE – The Oroville Chamber of Commerce is promising more than just a spectacular pyrotechnics for this year’s Community Fireworks Display at Deep Bay Park. The day starts at noon with the a canon salute by “our fireworks guys,” with a sulute to follow each hour until the display starts at dark, according to chamber member Leah Palmer, who is helping to organize the expanded event for this year. Also starting at noon there food vendors will offer a variety of choices, including burgers, hotdogs, burritos, barbecued pulled pork, ice cream, granitas, snow cones
and more. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Staca Bell from Bug’s Photography will be offering family and individual photo sessions with half of her profits going towards the fireworks fund. “A great time to take a family picture at the park,” said Palmer. Starting at 4 p.m. the chamber is asking people parking in the park to donate $5 (or any amount they would be willing to donate) per car. The Explorer Scouts will be collecting donations and helping with security. Some of what is collected will go towards their group. “Please help us out,” asks Palmer. “Also, we highly suggest car pooling. Consider parking extra cars at Akins/

MISCELLANEOUS In other actions, the council approved the purchase of a new business class work station for the city office. The current work station operates under a Windows system that no longer is supported and now is considered vulnerable to cyber attack, according to the state Office of the Chief Information Officer. The council approved an expenditure of up to $2,650, including tax. • The council received a proposed social media policy from Police Chief Rob Burks that would apply to his department; however, Plumb said that department should follow the same policy as all city employees. If the current city policy wasn’t adequate, he said, “We need to fix the big one. If we don’t fix the whole city’s, we end up with a situation where one conflicts with the other, and opens us up to liability.” • The council approved a budget amendment formalizing changes to the salary schedule of the police officers. • A flyer will be sent to area residents seeking donations for the Tonasket City Swimming pool. The community pool committee had previously received approval from the council for postal expenses related to its distribution. • City Clerk Alice Attwood said she would be setting up an auction to dispense with a slew of items approved as surplus, including a pair of old police vehicles. The council approved the list of additional items designated for surplus. Attwood said that other cities may be invited to participate and that she would look into holding it at the rodeo grounds. • The city’s fall clean-up will be Sept. 20. The city council next meets on Tuesday, July 8.

MOSQUITO DISTRICT Plumb had just returned from a meeting of the Okanogan County Commissioners, where said they approved the beginning of the public information process (one public hearing, three public notices in local newspapers) that would allow the formation of a mosquito control district. The district would encompass the cities of Okanogan, Omak, Riverside, Tonasket and Oroville and would need to be approved by voters. Other cities in the county declined to join the proposed district. Plumb said it was the largest public attendance that he’d ever seen at a commissioners’ meeting, comprised mostly of Omak and Okanogan residents. “I believe I was the only elected official there,” Plumb said, adding that city planner Kurt Danison and Oroville Community Development Director Chris Branch were among those in attendance.

pieces of metal buried in his body. You couldn’t see them, but you could feel them. I was probably only three years old, but that was when I learned the word “shrapnel.” It seemed like a pretty cool word. I later learned that he had been on a mine sweeper in the South Pacific that had been sunk, and that the shrapnel, along with his elegantly scarred right ear, were a result of that battle in World War II. And while he was proud of his status as a U.S. Navy veteran, not only did he rarely speak of his war experiences, most of the details of that period of his life were new to me as recently as four years ago, when he finally consented to sit down with my parents and recount his bit of war history. So, details were few until his remarkably candid and detailed recollection of that relatively brief but significant period of his life. Interestingly, he probably could have avoided military service, even at the height of war, had he chosen to. Not only was he married with two young sons, John and my father, Bob, but he was working in the oil fields in southern California, considered a vital industry in support of the war effort. One of his brothers was in the Army Air Corps and the other involved in counterintelligence, and he felt both the desire to contribute and the pressure to serve. “At my age I was asked a lot of questions about why I wasn’t in and it began to work on me,” he said. He quit his job, taking on some temporary work, and six months later was drafted, taking advantage of being offered a choice to enter the Navy. He trained at bases in Farragut, Idaho; Waukegon, Illinois; and Richmond, Virginia, primarily in diesel engineering. After spending about two weeks at home over Christmas of 1944, he shipped out from San Francisco on a converted cruise liner, but ran into some unforeseen issues upon landing in Honolulu, where the ship stopped to let off Navy WAVES. “I was waving at people, and everybody was hollering and waving at us from the dock,” Grandpa said. “I had someone come up

I asked what was going on and he said, ‘You’ve got a rash all over your back.’ It was a heat rash, but boy they didn’t take any chances. They had me isolated on a gurney, got me down on that. I was off that ship in less than 20 minutes. They thought I possibly had scarlet fever or measles, because my back had that rash on it.” He said a friend of his saw the commotion from afar as he was hurriedly removed from the ship, without having any idea what was going on. “The ship couldn’t leave until the Navy sent a military ambulance from the Naval hospital. They had me off and in that thing. Lyle was up there looking down, and he couldn’t figure out what happened. I couldn’t figure out what happened either. No one knew what was happening, but I held that ship up 35-40 minutes... “They took me and put me in the isolation ward. I was right next door to all types of diseases in there. I was isolated in there for 14 days.” After a month’s delay, he finally shipped out to the Admiralty Islands - somehow, remarkably, without orders - to the Leyte Gulf in the Philippines, where he found he’d been assigned to the mine sweeper. “I don’t even know when I was
Like most wartime duties, mine sweeping was no picnic. Crews of ships like my grandfather’s scoured the bays, inlets and occasionally rivers for a variety of nasty surprises, primarily contact, magnetic and acoustical mines. As Grandpa described them, the contact mines were covered with spikes or prongs that acted as a trigger when a ship came in contact with them. Magnetic and acoustical mines didn’t require physical contact to set off. Magnetic mines would be activated by the attraction to a metal ship passing overhead. Most Navy ships, by 1945, had antimagnetic equipment to neutralize the attraction. There was no counteracting the trigger for an acoustical mine, which was set off by the vibrations of passing ships. “On our ship ... we had a huge ball that looked like a bell on the front of the ship that could be lowered into the water,” Grandpa said. “On the one end it was about two or two and a half inches of heavy steel that was bolted outside that bell. There was a magnetic jackhammer that was controlled by, I think air pressure. It would hammer against the two inch plate of steel on the outside.” “First we would sweep for contact mines. We couldn’t do contact mines and others at the same time. Then we’d sweep for magnetic mines and acoustical mines.” Of course, his life didn’t end after the YMS-481 was lost. He’d lost so much blood that an admiral awarded him his Purple Heart within a day or two while still on board ship with the words, “I think you’re going to survive.” His injuries were extensive, including his ruined right ear, brain damage and a partially severed spinal cord and countless shrapnel wounds. “Only 15 or 16 amounted to anything,” he said. “The others were just tiny fragments.” Even so, he could never go near an MRI unit for fear that the fragments would be torn from his body. His spinal injury was unique enough that a Jewish physician who had escaped Nazi Germany
and lived in San Diego was one of two doctors in the world that had the expertise to treat him. “The spinal injury that still affects me,” Grandpa said. “I still don’t have good vision for quick movements. There was a lot of brain damage; he was aware of that. But up in the neck area. I had shrapnel up there, that is still there. They wouldn’t take it out.” There was plenty of support at the time for returning veterans as well, at least in his experience. “After one of my surgeries, I was outside my room,’ Grandpa recalled of one memorable postwar event. “Helen Keller, born without any hearing or vision, was down there at the base. She and her assistant (perhaps Annie Sullivan, but never confirmed), they came walking along. She walked up to me. I could talk to her assistant and her assistant would talk to me. Then (Keller) grabbed my neck, and held on, felt the vibrations of my talking. I could talk to her, and she could talk clear enough to where I could understand her. We had quite a visit.” Dozens of surgeries later including two attempts to provide him with an artificial ear drum - he was back at working the Signal Hill oil fields as he had been before the war. To his grandkids, other than the shrapnel and his very cool “war ear,” you’d never have known he was anything other than the picture of health. Of course, there was far more to his life than that; married to my grandmother Eleanor for 55 years, living in the same house a stone’s throw from what is now Disneyland from 1939 until just last year, and all that 95 years of life implies. Another of the Greatest Generation is gone, this man the last of that generation in my family. The “Baker” in me wants to think of him as unique, but in many ways he was not, and that’s a good thing. Like the other World War II veterans I’ve had the honor of profiling here - Jim Pruitt, Floyd Kennedy and Hugh Maycumber - their stories need to be told, so their legacies won’t be forgotten, and the horrors that demanded their sacrifice may one day cease to be repeated.

Kinross: environmentally and socially responsible mining Kinross Kettle River - Buckhorn (KRB) takes environmental protection and enhancement very seriously. One aspect of environmental responsibility that the community may not be aware of is our extensive mitigation program and activities. The purpose of mitigation is to compensate society and the natural environment for specific disturbances that may occur as a part of an activity, be it mining, resort development, construction projects, infrastructure development and more.

The total land disturbance at the Buckhorn Mine is only a little over 50 acres, which will be reclaimed once mining activities are concluded. In order to compensate for this footprint, the company has purchased over 500 acres of private property that will be held in perpetual trust in a conservation easement, meaning the land is preserved from future development, and becomes equivalent to public lands.

Recognized for perfect waste water treatment operations THE GAZETTE-TRIBUNE
OLYMPIA â€“Wastewater treatment plants in four municipalities in Okanogan County were among the were among 126 treatment facilities across the state with perfect performance in 2013, a jump from 107 the year before. The Okanogan County wastewater treatment facilities with a perfect operating record in 2013 were in Oroville, Tonasket, Omak
and Okanogan, according to the Washington State Department of Ecology. Because wastewater treatment (sewer) plant operations are the first line of defense to protect public health and lakes, rivers and Puget Sound, Ecology recognizes this achievement annually with its Outstanding Wastewater Treatment Plant Awards. â€œTreatment plant operators are professionals who understandably take a lot of pride in
their work and its importance in protecting the environment. It is an honor to recognize their contributions with these awards,â€? said Heather Bartlett, manager of Ecologyâ€™s Water Quality Program. The award-winning plants passed all environmental tests, analyzed all samples, turned in all state-required reports, and avoided permit violations during 2013. Omak has been recognized 10 times, Okanogan, nine; Oroville, seven and Tonasket, five.

IT ROUNDTABLE Chief Information Officer Kelly Cariker reported on a gathering of IT staff from nine different hospitals that he arranged, and that took place in Quincy on June 17. He said the primary reason for meeting was to discuss issues regarding Meaningful Use mandates, which dictate the different stages of converting to Electronic Heath Record systems. All of the Okanogan and Ferry County facilities were represented, and all were Critical Access Hospitals with the exception of Quincy Valley Medical Center. He said that all but one hospital had completed the Stage 1 mandates, and all were scrambling in their preparations for Stage 2 attestation, which will start in July. â€œEverybody is a little concerned about some of the measures we are up against,â€? Cariker said. â€œSeveral facilities declined to go (forward with Stage 2 in July),
even though it is the last attestation period for Stage 2 without looking at a money loss.â€? In comparing hospitals, he said that NVH ranked in the middle of the pack in terms of IT staffing (three employees; the CAHs ranged from 1-5); was the least in debt of any of the hospitals in attendance; and of the four there that had Extended Care facilities had the most available beds (40, compared to 16 at two other facilities and 12 at one). He said that the they also discussed the possibility of using one anotherâ€™s facilities for off-site data backup to prevent against catastrophic data loss in the event of a regional disaster (such as a major Okanogan River flood). Additionally, the commissioners approved Carikerâ€™s request to update the hospitalsâ€™ data backup system, which currently isnâ€™t able to do a full backup due to storage restrictions. The upgrade will cost $15,741. The Board of Commissioners next meets on Thursday, July 10.

THE TOWN CRIER Easing the pain LETTERS at the pump TO THE All across Central Washington, school is out, summer is in full bloom, and the 2014 harvest is underway. Many families will spend the Independence Day weekend enjoying the weather outdoors in the Columbia River Gorge for water sports, hiking through the Wenatchee National Forest, white water rafting down the White Salmon River, enjoying a day at one of Central Washington’s vineyards, or fishing in the lakes of North Cascades National Park. As in years past, the warmer weather and the promise of summer vacation drives up the demand and the price for gasoline. So far this year, we are seeing another summer of high gasoline prices that will discourage people from touring our region and impact our economy. Since President Obama took office five years ago, gasoline prices have doubled and our federal energy resources have been put under tight lock-and-key. This is unacceptable. High gasoline prices are squeezing working class families, increasing the costs of groceries and other goods, and forcing businesses to cut costs and raise prices. Rising gasoline prices are a drain on our economy and our pocketbooks. Commuting work, running the kids to summer camps, Opinion by to and putting food on the table are all becoming U.S. Rep. Doc increasingly difficult to afford. Rising gasoline costs disproportionately affect Hastings rural areas like Central Washington. Famers spend an average of nearly 60 percent more of their income on energy than their urban counterparts. Those of us in the Yakima Valley or Columbia Basin feel the pain at the pump far more than our friends to the west in Seattle or Tacoma. The good news is that four-dollar gasoline doesn’t have to be our reality. This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a series of bills that would lower energy costs for hardworking Americans across the country and create new American jobs. One of those bills, which I authored, would responsibly harness the American energy resources we have right here at home, which would reduce our dependence on foreign oil and help ease the pain at the pump for every American. Another bill that passed the House would put an end to bureaucratic and administrative delays for oil pipelines – such as the widely supported Keystone XL pipeline, natural gas pipelines, and electric transmission lines. The House has acted on real American energy solutions that will put more money back into people’s pockets. The approval of these bipartisan, common sense bills is a bold step forward to unlocking America’s energy potential and creating over one million new American jobs, strengthening our national security, improving our economy, and ensuring that Americans have access to affordable energy. With lower gasoline prices, more people will be able to visit Central Washington, take in the unique beauty of our region, and enjoy everything we have to offer throughout the summer.
From the editor: Due to Canada Day and our printers wanting to enjoy their holiday we were a day short this week. As deadline was fast approaching I took the easy route and went with Rep. Hastings in my spot this week. I’ll try to be back where I belong in the next issue. Meanwhile, I hope everyone enjoys our Independence Day holiday, I’m sure I’ll be seeing some familiar faces, both American and Canadian, at the Chesaw Fourth of July Rodeo and at Oroville’s Community Fireworks Display at Oroville’s Deep Bay Park.

Dear Editor, To the Tonasket Community: We need your help! A committee has been formed to secure funding for a new community swimming pool. It will be a replacement of the one that was built in 1948 – more than 60 years ago! To build a new pool will cost a lot of money! In 1949 wages were about $1.50 per hour - now, over $20! And, materials and necessary planning have gone up proportionally. Three generations of our young people have learned to swim in the Tonasket pool. Not only did they learn to swim, but they learned water safety and they learned that courtesy and consideration is necessary in a potentially dangerous place. And then for fun, swim teams were formed that travelled to other communities for competition. And, some of our swimmers went on to become water safety instructors - sanctioned by the Red Cross. We need to have these opportunities available to our kids again - as soon as possible! I’m 84-years-old. You may wonder why I would care about a swimming pool? Because I still remember the years my kids enjoyed their time in that pool. They still talk about it! And, they are now in their fifties and sixties! We need to make a new pool a part of our young peoples’ lives for the next three generations. A new pool would help to reflect the warm spirit of out town and community. When asked, please join me, and many others, with your most generous donation to this effort. Jack Lorz Ellisforde
Teacher’s dismissal was a ‘great injustice’
When did we become afraid of officials WE elected and pay for? I have never lived in an area where so many people either have their children go to a school in a neighboring town or they decide to home school because they feel it is a better chance for their child to succeed. For the most part, they are making the best decision because we obviously have a board that doesn’t care about the students or staff. My husband and I haven’t started a family, but I know without a doubt we wouldn’t allow our child to attend if the present circumstances do not change. Wake up Oroville! I adore this community, but we are doing our future generations an incredible injustice. I witnessed dozens of students supporting Mr. Frazier and the thought of losing him had half of them in tears. I have heard countless others tell their parents they didn’t want to go to school anymore because one of the few teachers who made it worthwhile was being terminated. And for what reasons? Lack of lesson plans? The principal submitted that Mr. Frazier provided more lesson plans than most of the other teachers. Oh, but they weren’t uploaded. However, they were all on file in his classroom for anyone to look at, and he was told in the beginning of the year that having them uploaded was not his top priority. He is accused of not attending faculty meetings. He missed two, one of which was authorized and the other by mistake from lack of knowledge about the meeting. Both were made up within a day or two. Mr. Frazier was given no books or curriculum to teach with and yet he excelled and made an impact. If there had been issues with his teaching style, he should have been made aware. He has e-mails from the superintendent stating that he was fine and on course. In his year review by the principal, it was stated he was right on the mark of where he needed to be as a first year teacher. If this was a legitimate non-renewal, why was Mr. Frazier and the community denied the right to defend him. The board says there are more reasons to this matter, yet they refuse to let Mr. Frazier or the public know of these reasons and have denied everyone the chance oppose them. “Power does not corrupt men; fools, however, if they get into a position of power, corrupt power.” Dusti L. Giroux Oroville
Oroville Superintendent should be fired Dear Editor, I’m writing in regards to your editorial written about the school levy and how it effects the children. Although that is true, the meeting regarding my nephew Ryan Frazier last week just shows how true not voting for the school levy is. How can our kids get a proper education when they get rid of good teachers the reason they threaten to call the cops is because they knew people were pissed off and had a good reason to be and there all a bunch of chickens anyway. I hope no one votes for the levy and the school goes broke. They need to fire Quick and everyone on the school board. If people feel the same way write a letter to Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn calling for Mr. Quick to be fired and the school board members to step down. New people need to run agaist these people and get them out that’s why they do what they do – no one runs against them. Sincerely, Risa Ross – OHS Alumni Belfry, Montana Editor’s note: Please refrain from using expletives in your letters to the editor. We left one out this time, next time we won’t publish your letter.

Dear Editor Monday, June 23, at the school board meeting, I witnessed a great injustice to a good teacher, man and friend. Ryan Frazier became a teacher because he wanted to make a difference. He wanted to provoke young minds and expand horizons. He returned to his hometown so he could step up beside those who had made a difference in his education and life. But now teachers in the Oroville School District hang their heads and suppress their voices. They fear for their jobs because of a tyrannical school board. One whose members like to change the rules to their favor and put public meetings behind closed doors to try to quiet the voice of those who oppose them. Other members of the community also hold their tongue for fear of the repercussion to their children or family members who are involved in the school.

Dear Editor I am writing though as a concerned parent. Last Wednesday afternoon, my 11-year olddaughter was in our driveway getting things out of our car. A white pick up, (license/ make/model unknown), being driven by a Hispanic male. He stopped and asked her if she wanted a ride. She declined and came in and reported it to us. We reported it to the local police, understanding that since there was no complete description no action could officially be taken. I am writing this as just a heads up to parents in the area. We live across the street from a city park. Even though I rarely see kids playing there without an adult, I just want parents and kids to be aware that there may be someone with intents that aren’t in the best interest of a child. B.

We could also hold mass executions for whoever it is at universities who decided to force students to listen to five minutes of recorded ads before getting the final grades they paid thousands of dollars to earn. And all this is before we even get to the exorbitant salaries of college professors and administrators when education is too expensive for anyone but the kids of rich Chinese and Saudis. Or the faculty advisor who told some freshman girl that a degree in Pre Cambrian Eskimo Transgender Studies would make a wonderful career in which to invest a $175K student loan.

Warmer and dryer conditions increase chance of wildfires people visit DNR-protected lands. Unattended campfires, faulty vehicle or motorcycle mufflers, careless disposal of cigarettes, and reckless outdoor burning also boost the Fourth of July weekendâ€™s forest fire potential. Fireworks and incendiary devices, such as exploding targets, are prohibited year-round on public lands managed by DNR. For all other forestlands throughout the state, incendiary devices are prohibited from April 15 and October 15, regardless of who owns or manages the forestland.
DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES RELEASE
OLYMPIA â€“ As people plan outdoor activities around the Fourth of July weekend, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is urging the public to be aware of fire restrictions in place around the state due to rising fire danger. Because the weather is warming up and vegetation is quickly drying out, fires can start and spread quickly. Last year, fireworks caused 27 wildfires on the public and private lands DNR protects from wildfire. DNR records show wildfires occur more on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, when more
discharge fireworks on state-protected private and public lands; Âˇ Do not park any vehicles in dry, grassy areas as the heat from exhaust systems can ignite the dry grass; Âˇ Never leave a campfire unattended, and be sure it is completely out before leaving the area; Âˇ Be sure recreational vehicles have operating spark arresters. For those staying closer to home, DNR encourages everyone to focus on â€œKnowing Your Roleâ€? when it comes to preparing your community for wildfire. Visit http://fireadapted.org/ to learn more about defensible space, fireresilient building construction, community wildfire prevention planning, the Firewise Program, and Ready, Set, Go!

Stream ecology presentation in Chesaw OHA Summer Highland Wonders series SUBMITTED BY JULIE ASHMORE OHA CONSERVATION COORDINATOR
CHESAW - On Saturday, July 19, OHAâ€™s Summertime Highland Wonders series will bring a unique opportunity to learn about Stream Ecology, hands-on in the highlands. The event will be led by freshwater ecologist and emeritus professor Dr. Mark Oswood. An indoor presentation at the Chesaw Community Building at 10:00 a.m. will cover the basics of stream ecology, followed by a demonstration of books and gear, and a field trip to a local stream. The presentation is open to everyone, while pre-registration is required for the field trip due to space limitations. This event aims to increase our communityâ€™s understanding of stream ecology, and how riparian zones and streams interact to support and affect populations of aquatic insects. Community members will have the opportunity to collect macroinvertebrates and look at and identify specimens with field optics, streamside. Connections will be made between populations of aquatic insects and what their presence indicates about water quality. Mark lives in the Wenatchee area, retired from the department of Biology and Wildlife and the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, with a research specialty in freshwater ecology. Mark focused mainly on running waters (streams and rivers), with an emphasis on aquatic entomology (the scientific study of insects) and trophic structure of stream ecosystems. He has taught limnology (freshwater science), ecology of streams and rivers, aquatic entomology, as well as introductory biology. Most of his research was on ecology of stream insects, especially biogeography, and decomposition of organic matter. Mark has applied experience studying the effects of heavy metals from mining on streams, and has a side specialty in statistical analysis.
Dr. Mark Oswood, collecting stream samples. Throughout his career, Mark has taught a wide variety of â€œintroduction to stream ecologyâ€? events in classrooms, Elder Hostels, and for government agencies, fly-fishing groups, and conservation organizations. â€œSeeing the diversity of invertebrates that live in streams can be analogous to a first experience looking at tide pool organisms,â€? he says. â€œPlus, aquatic insects are a streamâ€™s way of turning green algae and brown leaves into fish food.â€? Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the indoor presentation. Due to the nature of the outdoor portion of the event, participation is limited, and priority registration will be offered for OHA members. A waiting list is being generated on a first-come, first-serve basis. To begin or renew OHA membership and be first in line to register for the summertime events, community members can visit www.okanoganhighlands.org/ support, or contact OHA for more information. To sign up for this event, or the â€œGeology of the Okanogan Highlandsâ€? tour on August 16, email julie@ okanoganhighlands.org or call 509-476-2432. Community members are also encouraged to collect plant photos and specimens throughout the summer, to bring to OHAâ€™s â€œEvening with the Expertsâ€? event in September, for assistance with identification and information about the plants. Guidelines are available at: www.okanoganhighlands.org/education/mysteryplant.

WILLIAM LEAVELL Bill Leavell was a man of many talents. He loved to do things his way and in his time! Bill was almost a Christmas baby; he was born on December 21, 1932. He loved the month of June for growing beautiful vegetables and flowers and he chose June 10, 2014 to meet his beloved Silky Terrier Grand Champion Bar-Bâ€™s Tawnymist Topias â€œTopiâ€? and cross over the Rainbow Bridge to be together. Topi and Bill loved playing ball, and Bill was looking forward to joining Topi to play once again. Bill had a passion for doing many things: he loved showing Silky Terriers and especially Topi to his Championship; he loved
raising the Silky Terrier puppies with his wife, Barb. He also raised race and show horses; he had a champion show Appaloosa Quarter horse, named Chick. Bill enjoyed traveling to fun places like Mexico and Hawaii. He turned challenges into opportunities to create new ways of doing things, whether gardening, cooking, working with wood, or just plain fixinâ€™ something! When Bill wanted to be heard, he had a wonderful booming voice. He would look over his glasses and willingly share his thoughts and opinions on many topics. He liked to raise his voice in joyful guidance to his favorite teams, the Mariners and the Seahawks. Now, he also thought the referees might need some of his coaching when things werenâ€™t quite going as he knew they should. Bill was a devoted husband, father and grandfather to his family. He leaves behind his wife, partner and helpmate of 47 years, Barbara; his daughters, Michelle, Lisa and Julie; his son, Jerry; and his grandchildren, Jeffry, Adam, Jessica and Carly. Bill spent his early life in the Tonasket/Orville area of Eastern Washington, leaving after high school to join the United States Navy. He still has family and friends living there, including his brother, Grant, and sister-in-law, Sandra. His family and friends must have many memorable stories to tell about the Life and Times of Bill Leavell. And, we are sure his time of honorable service in the Navy would also offer some captivating storiesâ€“ like how he got those wonderful Naval tattoos! Bill requested that no formal service be conducted. The family asks that you celebrate your memories of Bill in your way to
best honor him. Barbara would love to hear your stories in the comments below. It is requested that you not send flowers; however, Bill was committed to supporting Barb in her work with Silky Terrier Rescue, and contributions would be welcomed to his beloved Silky Terriers in his name. Contributions may be made athttp://www.silkyrescue. tripod.com.
