Duckies to race to raise money for pool Donations also accepted for fire fighting efforts THE GAZETTE-TRIBUNE
TONAKSET - The committee working to rebuild the Tonasket Swimming Pool is sponsoring a Duck Race at History Park on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 3:30 p.m. The ducks will be numbered and dumped in the water all together and float down to the boat launch at the soccer fields. The first duck to cross the finish line wins! When you buy your entry, you will get a number that corresponds to a duck. First prize is $100 and the first one to get to jump in the new pool; second prize is $50 and the second one into the pool; third prize is $25 and the third one in the pool. Buy your duck for $5 at one of the following locations: The Split End; It’s Still Good; Lee Franks; Tonasket Interiors; Upper Valley Realty; OK Chevrolet; and the Tonasket Farmer’s Market. Due to the fires around the area, if you would like your donation to go to fire victims rather than the pool, please indicate that when you purchase your duck. We can do a 50/50 split as well. Our thoughts go out to all those who have had losses due to the fires.
Clockwise from top: Alumni, both students and teachers of the Molson Schoolhouse rode in a parade celebrating the 100th anniversary of the school’, now a museum (see page A2). Astronomers from all over the country gathered at the Eden Valley Ranch to participate in this year’s Star Party (more on page A2). It’s a tailgate party, the parade at Molson stopped for a quick tailgate party mimicking those of the past. Joe Schell, Elva Helm and Joyce Forthun enjoyed a few soft drinks before moving on. Alumni were encouraged to sign memories sheets of there time at the Molson Schoolhouse.
State’s largest fire now at 67 percent containment New fire starts, threatens Mansfield BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
Gary DeVon & Brent Baker
WINTHROP - Incident Commanders are declaring the Carlton Complex Fire, the largest in the state’s recorded history, as being 67 percent contained as of last Tuesday afternoon. The fire has burned 250,806 acres and destroyed more than 300 homes. Similar to Monday’s fire conditions and fire suppression activities, residents in the fire area can expect to see smoke generated from isolated flare ups of unburned fuel (trees) contained within the fire perimeter. Isolated group torching of trees may occur due to dry conditions, said Bill Hahneberg, Incident Commander. Helicopters with water buckets will be working to extinguish pockets of fire within the fire perimeter on steep and hard to access slopes. In the southwest corner of the fire, construction of containment line was completed on Monday. Night staffing was in place Monday night and crews were kept busy responding to residents reporting fire activity, according to SEE FIRES | PG A4 Hahnenberg.
The Tumbleweed Film Fest experience BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR

From July 30 through Saturday, Aug. 2, the fifth annual Tumbleweed Film Festival comes back to town, turning four venues into theaters for a night. Each evening attendees will watch different films each night. At most of Tumbleweed’s venues, filmgoers may sample local wines, beers and cuisine while they watch comedies, dramas, documentaries and animation. Venues for this year’s festival include the Pastime Bar and Grill (Wednesday, July 30), Oroville High School (Thursday, July 31), Alpine Brewing (Friday, Aug. 1) and Esther Bricques Winery (Saturday, Aug. 2). “Each Tumbleweed venue is as entertaining and unique as are the films we show,” said Geoff Klein, Tumbleweed
co-founder. “And each venue offers a great assortment of both humorous and thoughtprovoking films,” said co-founder Mo Fine. The film festival kicked off on Wednesday, with a special opening night reception at the Pastime Bar and Grill followed by a private screening at Vicki’s Back Door. On Thursday, Tumbleweed brings Family Night films to the Oroville High School Commons, which offers a cool, comfortable theater setting from which to enjoy short films that both kids and adults will enjoy. These films will include action adventures, funny cartoons and even a love story. Movies start at 7 pm. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door or on the Tumbleweed website. On Friday, it is “Beers, Brats and Short Films” at the Alpine Brewing Company, where attendees may sample hand-crafted German style beers or taste wines from four local wineries. Attendees may

Molson School House part of Highlands History Alumni and friends gather to celebrate at the Molson Schoolhouse Museum BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
MOLSON – From humble beginnings in a saloon building in 1903, the history of Molson schools is rich in history, but people gathered in Molson last Saturday to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the brick school house built in 1914. The two-story school operated from 1914 to 1969 and now serves as the Schoolhouse Museum housing memories of school days as
well as the Molson area. From saloon to the first building, a little white school house built on the hill in 1905, the brick school house served the community for 55 years. The first “graduate” was Carl Rounds, who received a letter of credit, according to school records. The first graduating class was a class of one. IN 1921, Union High School District #2 was formed of six districts, Bonaparte, Kipling, Knob Hill, Havillah, Field and Molson. In 1927 the first school bus came from Knob Hill. In 1942 District #400 was formed and it consisted of Molson, Lone Star, Chesaw, Myers Creek, Knob Hill, Field, Kipling and Nine Mile districts. Six years later Chesaw would consolidate with Molson.
The last graduating class was in 1962 and included Steve Leslie, Mary Ellen Leslie, Gerald Cockle and Richard Cockle. It was that year that Grades Seven through 12 would go “down the hill” and attend school in Oroville. In 1969, all grades would transfer to Oroville. The school’s basketball team were county champions in the 19281929 school year and in the 1930-31 school year. According to the celebration program the team was called or known as the Stubble Jumpers, then later, the Falcons and in 1955 renamed the Hilltoppers. A year after the school closed, the schoolhouse was purchased for $10 from the Oroville School District. In June of 1982 it was opened as the schoolhouse Museum. Gary DeVon/staff photos

STAR PARTY AT EDEN VALLEY
TMSP to stay? BY BRENT BAKER
Smoke and fire in the region couldn’t keep them away, and thunder and lightning didn’t chase off 300 amateur astronomers from the Table Mountain Star Party at Eden Valley Guest Ranch last week. Held at the ranch for the second year after fire torched the original Table Mountain site near Ellensburg, the gathering featured people and telescopes of all types, including families with small children equipped with nothing but binoculars to lifelong enthusiasts with immense, complex instruments that required trailers to transport them to Robin and Patrick Stice’s pasture. This year’s attendance of 300 didn’t include another 20 that paid registration but didn’t show up. That was largely considered a success for organizers, who felt that misconceptions about the extent of the Carlton Complex fire kept some people away that had planned on attending. Attendees that I had a chance to talk to cited only two disadvantages for Eden Valley Ranch compared to the original Table Mountain site: the long drive for Puget Sound attendees (which has cut attendance by about 20 percent from its old digs) and tradition. However, those who did come cited the Stices’ hospitality vs. camping on National Forest Service land; safer roads to the site (many travel in RVs); better access to town (the Table Mountain site is much further, time-wise, from Ellensburg than is Eden Valley from Oroville); and better, darker viewing skies. It should make for interesting discussions about the future of the Table Mountain Star Party.
Above, Star gazers at the Table Mountain Star Party at Eden Valley Guest Ranch enjoy a crystal clear night on Thursday, July 24. Amateur astronomers use red light to maintain their dark adapted “night” vision. Right, top, Zach Drew gives daughter Lily a chance to peer through his telescope at the Table Mountain Star Party last week, hosted at Eden Valley Guest Ranch. The event featured educational and fun events during the day for all ages, as well as outstanding views of the bright stars of the Okanogan Highlands night skies for telescope enthusiasts. Bottom, right, Patrick and Robin Stice were one again awarded a Hulan Fleming work from the TMSP committee in thanks for their hosting the star party for the second straight year. The Eden Valley Guest Ranch owners were lauded for both the quality of the setting and their hospitality.

The heavens from the Highlands Performing surgery is not for the faint-hearted. Performing it on an emergency basis in the dark, with a dim red light providing the only illumination ... that’s another matter entirely. Putting a telescope “under the knife” turned out to be an impromptu service provided by one of the directors of the Table Mountain Star Party that descended on Robin and Pat Stice’s Eden Valley Guest Ranch last week. The patient, thankfully, was not a living being (though it seemed to have taken on a life of its own). Those who attend the star party have all levels of love for astronomy, and all levels of experience with telescopes and their associated accessories. Think of a classic car show, but for science geeks. But getting started in the hobby can be difficult, especially with balky equipment. One family had brought with them a small telescope that they’d never quite

While Zach was poking his screwdriver amongst the delicate innards of the neighbors’ balky scope, I took his telescope (a reflector with a 12.5-inch mirror and a simple, manually operated “Dobsonian” mount) for a drive to share sights with the neighbors as they waited for the completion of Zach’s lifesaving surgery. It was pretty satisfying to hear the exclamations of surprise at the views through his scope. Symbols and spots with arcane numbers on star maps came alive before their eyes. M57 ... a smoky ring floating in the midst of a starfield, the remnants of a star that had blown off most of its mass, leaving just its faintly glowing core at the center. M13 ... a sparkling ball of a thousand suns that you could just discern individually, other than at the very dense core of the cluster. M17 ... a bright smudge of gray shaped like a swan, complete with a few subtly-shaded
“feathers.” In that cloud, though you can’t see it visually happening from our distant locale, stars are being born. Speaking of stars ... M31 ... a galaxy similar to our own Milky Way, so distant that its light takes more than two million years to reach us. That’s actually about as close as it gets as far as galaxies go, and it is so big in the eyepiece that it overflows the field of view. Finally, with surgery completed, Zach gave a quick lesson on the computer controls, and the excited “newbies” were on their own journey of exploration with their now functional little scope. Zach and I spent the next two nights searching out some the lesser known, but no less unique, sights of interest of our own, some that one or the other of us had never seen before. I only got to experience half of the five day TMSP, but it was filled with fresh discovery, new friends and a regained sense of perspective. This is why we came.

NRL PUPPET SHOW
Puppeteers from the North Central Regional Library brought their show on recycling to the Oroville Public Library last week. Two-Pack and the kids learned about how easy it can be to recycle items and why people should care about it. The kids seemed to have a good time watching the show and learning about something new. Most were not shy about asking the puppet questions and letting them know their ideas about recycling. The puppet show was part of the Summer Reading Program taking place at regional libraries like those in Oroville and Tonasket.
Search continues for drowning victims THE GAZETTE-TRIBUNE
OKANOGAN – The search for a 57-year-old Oroville man who is believed drowned in Palmer Lake near Loomis on July 11 is ongoing, according to Sheriff Frank Rogers. Darrel L. Williams was fishing with a friend when he stood up in the back of the boat and fell overboard. When he surfaced his partner asked him if he was okay and threw him a life jacket, Williams told him he was all right but then began to struggle and went under the water and never surfaced. Williams’s partner immediately dove in and tried to locate Williams but was unable to find him. Divers and other response crews have continued to search, even as emergency personnel were stretched thin due to the fires raging in Okanogan County. “Even though we were busy we still have two drowning victims.... we still have not found the subject in the Columbia and Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Rodriguez contacted them this week. We also sent Deputies up yesterday to Palmer Lake to continue the search and they found nothing. We have not forgotten and will not forget and will continue to search for both of the drowning
victims,” said Sheriff Rogers. Williams is a retired U.S. Border Patrol Agent with his last duty station being at the Oroville Branch of the United States
Border Patrol. This is the third drowning in Okanogan County this year, according to the sheriff.
Dressed in her flip flops and nightgown, Linda Darrow shot and killed this cougar that was menacing her goats as well as her piece of mind. She had lost a pet goat on Monday, alerting her to the predator problem. The cougar attacked and killed another goat at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. So, worried for her goats and grandchildren Darrow shot the big male cat with a 30 cal. pistol. Linda and husband Dave live on Pine Chee south of Chesaw.

THE TOWN CRIER
Folks split there time between the Schoolhouse Museum and the Molson Grange Hall, or in the street in between. In addition to vendors indoors there was music played by the Wilder Band.
Heaven in the Highlands That’s what we’re calling our coverage of the Molson Schoolhouse’s 100th Anniversary Party and the Star Party held for the second year at Pat and Robin Stice’s Eden Valley Guest Ranch. It was great to see all the people who attended the 100th Anniversary Celebration in Molson Saturday. While some graduated from the school, prior to consolidation at Oroville, I recognized many of the one-time Molson students who had come down the hill to finish off their education at Oroville. The names of others in their familiar as well. Having grown up across the ally from Delmer and Elva (Rise) Helm you get to know a lot about Helms, Rises, McKinneys, Leslies and what have you. It’s interesting to note, another Rise – Joyce Forthun, not only graduated from Molson, but taught there a couple years before she also came down the hill to teach at Oroville. What one learns most about the Highlands, is how much they give of their time to make things happen, whether it is running the museum and Midsummer Fest in Molson, the Chesaw Rodeo and Hot August Nights in Chesaw, or Flag Day and the Sock Hop in Wauconda, the “hill Out of people” work hard and then go on to work some My Mind more through volunteering. The list of things Gary A. DeVon to do at the Molson Grange Hall is impressive, Bingo, Pancake Feeds, Pinochle and Roller Skating. The Roller Skating has been going on at least 65 years, according to what they announced at the parade last Saturday. I was unable to attend the Star Party, but Brent Baker, an amateur astronomer himself, did a great job of covering it again this year. And this year, there were clear skies with actual stars. Check out his coverage on page 3 this week. For those that asked about how the surgery went, the “walking” boot will have come off by the time you read this and I’ll be back on two feet and two wheels again. Thanks for your well wishes.

THE OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF OROVILLE & TONASKET
See an ongoing pattern with school administrator OPINION BY KARL MARTIN PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON
Dear Gary and the Concerned Citizens of Oroville: First, I’d like to say, “Hi,” to all of my long-time Oroville friends and neighbors. I would also like to say that, “Please believe me, I wouldn’t be taking the time and effort to write this if I didn’t feel very strongly that there are some additional elements from Steve Quick’s recent past that should be considered.” I’ve been living and working in Clallam County on the Olympic Peninsula for the last 11 years or so. Back in 2005, Steve Quick was the principal of Forks High School, and as a result of his poor judgment and sheer arrogance, he created a situation that very closely parallels the current circumstances at Oroville High. The communities of Forks and Oroville share a lot of similarities in size, appearance, stores, restaurants, and even geographical remoteness. Forks is a tight-knit community where almost everyone knows everyone else. In Oroville, it’s Highway 97; in Forks, it’s Highway 101. Oroville is surrounded by farms and sagebrush; Forks is surrounded by dense forest with no other communities close by. In 2005, Steve Quick alienated a large portion of the Forks community. And because of the publicity in both the Forks and Port Angeles newspapers, he estranged a significant portion of Clallam County as well. I know; I was one of the citizens that was incensed by his continuing arrogance. In the end, he quickly left town before students, parents, and faculty held a ‘Tar and Feathering’ party. In late June of 2005, articles in both papers advised county citizens that ‘Steve Quick was getting out of Dodge,’ and had landed a job, “somewhere in Eastern Washington?” And I, like most locals, wondered, “How/where could there be a school system that would hire a person who could produce so much anger and divisiveness?” Boy, was I surprised to read my July 21, 2005 G-T and see a letter from Pam Leslie. Steve Quick had made it to
Oroville. I was rather stunned. Part of Steve Quick’s arrogance and poor judgment was demonstrated when the Forks basketball team traveled to Centralia for a playoff game, and Quick ejected a female student from Centralia High School’s gymnasium, “after she made an offensive hand gesture to the car carrying Quick en route to the game.” (A rather typical teenage thing to have done, quite frankly.) http://www. peninsuladailynews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/ article?AID=2005505030302 “That incident helped set off a firestorm of protest against the school’s administration – including two student walkouts on March 25 and April 1.” The female student was forced to wait outside in the cold weather by herself for the entire duration of that night’s game in Centralia. Her parents were furious. They didn’t excuse her behavior, but dealing with it could/should have waited until Monday. The School Board admitted that it was poor judgment on the part of Steve Quick. Below is the only active Internet review I could find that listed some of the Forks’ community’s actions in regard to Steve Quick. I’m also attaching pdf versions of the pages involved, just in case someone wants the information, and Gary is willing to forward this email to them. The various descriptions below were taken from the following link from the archives of The Seattle Times: http:// blog.seattletimes.nwsource.com/statepreps/ archives/2005_06.html I’ve made the article into a 33-page pdf document that is attached in its entirety. I’ve also provided separate pdf pages for each of the incidences listed below. The website link above lists the events in reverse order of their occurrence. The following list is their correct chronological sequence: 2005-06-07 The Seattle Times High School Sports - State Preps Report 2005-06 [page 21 of 33 of the pdf] Peninsula Daily News: Cheerleading coach vows to discuss problems with Forks High School principal at meeting tonight “FORKS - The (11-year) veteran high school cheerleading coach says she will open-
ly discuss problems she says she’s had with embattled Forks High School Principal Steve Quick with the Quillayute Valley School District board tonight. Quick has spent most of this spring at the center of protests -- including two student walkouts -- in March and April over what protesters say is an overly harsh leadership style.” 2005-06-08 The Seattle Times High School Sports - State Preps Report 2005-06 [page 18 of 33 of the pdf] Peninsula Daily News: Forks School Board gets earful from community on embattled principal “FORKS-The Quillayute Valley School Board heard an earful Tuesday night from Forks High School staff members, parents, students and community members who called on them to fire embattled principal Steve Quick. 11-year high school cheerleading coach Kathy Johnson read a long letter citing why she had finally ‘had enough’ of trying to establish good avenues of communication with Quick.” 2005-06-09 The Seattle Times High School Sports - State Preps Report 2005-06 [page 17 of 33 of the pdf] Peninsula Daily News: Embattled Forks High principal says he was told not to speak at School Board meeting “FORKS-During nearly the entire breadth of the Quillayute Valley School Board meeting Tuesday night, Forks High School Principal Steve Quick sat quietly in the front row, taking notes.” Peninsula Gateway: “Quick to be replaced at Forks High School, superintendent says “FORKS – Embattled Forks High School Principal Steve Quick won’t be back in the fall, Quillayute Valley School District Superintendent Frank Walter says.” (He’d already landed a subsequent job in Oroville.) EDITOR’S NOTE: This was too long for a letter so we are publishing Martin’s piece as a guest editorial. We will provide equal space for rebuttal if Mr. Quick should want it.
Why every American should be able to reach their full potential BY REP. CATHY MCMORRIS RODGERS U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, DIST 5
As the mom of a son who was born with an extra 21st chromosome, my family understands firsthand how federal policies can limit – not expand – opportunities for those with disabilities. The bipartisan Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act will change that. It will ensure that my son, Cole – and the millions like him who have special needs– will be able to save for their futures and reach their full potential. That is what we want for every American. That’s why I delivered testimony before the Senate Committee on Finance last week in support of this meaningful legislation. I spoke not just as a Member of Congress, but as a mother. As a longtime advocate of ABLE,
it was inspiring to be in a room packed with people equally passionate about seeing this bill get signed into law. There were moms and dads, leaders from the disability community, and senators and representatives from both sides of the aisle. Most importantly, there was an inspiring young woman named Sara Wolff, who has Down syndrome, and who shared her own life experiences with us all. As a part-time law-clerk, Sara makes $700 dollars a month – but she wants to do more. But because of archaic federal policies, she is limited in how much she can earn and how much she can save for her future. It is because of hardworking, compassionate people like Sara that so many have come together to enable countless Americans to attain a better life. Right now, too many people with disabilities – and their families – spend too many hours worrying about their financial security. This stress, coupled with outdated laws – those that encourage a life of dependence – must change. And that’s exactly what ABLE will do. As Americans, we want to empower every-
one in this country – regardless of background or birth – and the ABLE Act will do that. It encourages savings for education, housing and transportation by amending Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code of 1986, creating tax-free savings accounts for individuals with disabilities. It will empower millions of Americans, bringing independence for people with disabilities instead of requiring them to remain dependent on the federal government. It will help ensure that those with special needs will be able to save for their futures and reach their full potential – which every person should have the right to do. The ABLE Act would allow parents of children with disabilities to save for their children’s future without jeopardizing their access to benefits, helping many of them escape from poverty while adding another layer of security. We owe it to Sara and the many men and women like her across our country to make sure they can reach their full potential – and not be held back by outdated laws.
OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE | JULY 31, 2014
OKANOGAN VALLEY LIFE A nice gesture from Hughesâ€™ Dept. Store Another month ended today. August means back to school and apple harvest, shortly, along with pears and peaches. That is the makings of a good fruit salad. No holiday this month, so we just have to buckle down and work, and try and keep ahead of the weeds. For a unique gift, visit the World of Gaia Rock Shop in their new location, with added gift ware as well as their rocks and other items they had, when located next door to Hometown Pizza. They are still on Main but the other side of the street in the Spence Higby building. Hand made jewelry, just plain rocks and gifts from around the world. Do you ever notice how many lily pads are in the river below the Veterans park? I think they take up more than their share of space, but they are quite pretty. Why do we keep containers full of no good ball point pens? Do we think they will magically start to work the next time we try them, or are we just plain dumb? DUSTâ€Ś.a four letter dirty word! I
thought when I had a new house that no one had lived in, Iâ€™d be able to keep it clean, easily, but it came with its own supply of dust and there is never a shortage. What a nice gesture on behalf of Jack and Mary Hughes, of Hughes Dept. Store, at Princeâ€™s Center, to offer 20 percent discount on shoes and clothing to the folks who lost their homes and belongings in the Carlton area fires. Small amounts of rain fell Monday night and although not enough to entirely squelch the huge fires, Iâ€™m sure it did slow them down a bit and the lower temperatures will make it more bearable as the fire crews strive to extinguish them completely.

Tonasket Food Bank Fundraiser Concert
A wonderful day in Molson for schoolhouse anniversary SUBMITTED BY MARIANNE KNIGHT
Sack of Hammers Band to play at benefit to raise money for building
Good afternoon all you faithful readers of the Hilltop Comments. We are still here and well, but still having fits with our new computer, but are making an attempt to submit something each week. As you know it is not working. We are not quite sure just what the problem is. It could be operator error or even a jaunt into cyber space? Today I am going to tell you about the wonderful day we had Saturday in Molson at the 100th Anniversary of the Molson Schoolhouse (1914-2014). Back in March the Committee folks began the preparations for this great day. They had to decide on decorations, food, a parade, many vendors, games and door prizes

Blackler house. My first job was in that house and it had so many windows, all fitted with white, frilly curtains, and to iron those beasts was one of several jobs to be done. Mrs. Gladys Evans lived in the house and was the other half of Blackler-Evans orchards. (She even had me iron the sheets. I hated it when she had overnight guests). Many things are advertised on TV that are gonna make our life so much easier and Iâ€™ve gotten suckered in on a few, but the floor mop/bucket (which can be purchased at Wal-Mart) is a good thing. Well, after much pampering and with lotsa water and TLC we had our first tomatoes. They were quite tasty, but small and the rain and wind did not help in their attempt to make Clayton proud. A lady remarked that the first she did when she got up in the morning was try to put on her bathing suit, and then she knew that after that nothing worse could happen throughout the day. I can relate to that. Congratulations to Frontier Market for another Anniversary of being in business in Oroville. Their outdoor display of produce looked very nice and the changed deli was very inviting, making me think I wanted something from the bakery when Iâ€™d just came from lunch. â€˜Til next weekâ€Ś.
HILLTOP COMMENTS and the museums for your viewing pleasure. The turnout for the day was more than any one would have guessed would attend. There were a whopping 200 â€“ 300 guests in attendance with not all registering and wearing a name tag. Some of the familiar faces to me were Dean Brazel (only two in his class). Vivian Emry, Mary Louise Loe, Joyce Forthum (a teacher), Nadra Betcher, Bob and Margaret Hirst, Barbara Hartman and her brother Tom Gillett ( from New Jersey), Everett Turner, Barbara Dart, Judy and Darrell Bunch, Floyd and Pat Rise, Claire Rise (1936 grad), Don and Mary Ellen Field and Ruth Leslie (at 93 years-old). Forgive me if I have missed any of you, I can only remember so much. The Parade had Classic Cars, a Tractor, Fire Engine, two Lawn Mowers and Floats with all of the activities of the Grange Hall rep-
resented, like Bingo, Pinochle, Roller Skating, and Pancake Breakfasts, and is also a gathering place for many other events. I was happy to be introduced to some newer people like Jane Bartroff, and the McKinney girls and a few of my readers. Hope to see you all again soon. Thank you to all that helped to make this a day to remember. On Sunday, July 20, the Immanuel Lutheran Church of Havillah hosted a Benefit Breakfast Brunch for John Feddersen. If you missed the brunch it is not too late to make a donation. Please call Lennette Schuldheisz at 509-485-2211 or mail to 23 West Lost Lake Road, Tonasket. Make checks payable to Okanogan County Chapter of Thrivent Financial. John is a brother to Judy Bunch and Anita Fletcher. He was injured when a tree limb fell and hit him in the neck. On July 27 a service for the Immanuel Church was held at Camp ORTOHA at Lost Lake and was followed by a potluck. The Pastor was be Paul Mueller, who has served in several missions in Africa.

OROVILLE SENIOR NEWS
A change in guest speakers for August SUBMITTED BY DOLLY ENGELBRETSON OROVILLE SENIOR CENTER
Good News! In a conversation with Clyde Andrews, Chamber of Commerce President, he told me that the pool at the Camaray Motel is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and for $1.00 and you stay in the pool all day or go in and out during the day. Sounds like a good deal to me.
There will be no music from John and Joy Lawson and their friends until September. They are too busy this summer with other activities and gigs. Senior Center President James is promoting some good movies on the fourth Friday afternoon of the month. Also, we are still selling tickets on the talking doll, the
quilt and bed. We have had to make a change of speaker plans for Tuesday. Linda Heagy speaking about Strokes will be available on Tuesday, Aug. 5, instead of July 29 as noted last week. Tillie Porter will be talking to us on computers and training on July 29 and continue on Aug. 26. Pinochle scores for July 26: The door prize was won by Evelyn Dull; Leonard Paulsen and Dolly tied for most pinochles while Leonard was high scoring man and Dolly was high scoring lady. More next time.

JULY 31, 2014 | OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE
OBITUARIES CONTINUED LORAINE GRANT FROM PG 12
you canâ€™t even drive to Canada for dinner without a proper ID. As I was helping her with her computer, I saw her Certificate of Citizenship. Because she was born in Canada to an American mother, at age 19 she obtained this special document to prove her national allegiance. Her photograph is there, young with dark hair. And her real name is printed: â€œYvonne Lorraine Wiswell.â€? Yvonne? â€œMom, who is this Yvonne?â€? I asked. â€œNone of your G-D business,â€? she said. Lorraine â€” no one ever knew her as anything else â€” had decided long, long ago, perhaps when she was only a child, that sheâ€™d be Lorraine. No other doc-
ument lists her as Yvonne â€” not her driverâ€™s license or marriage license or passport. And I donâ€™t see anything wrong with that. She created herself in her own image, not the one that people once tried to cover up. She flew as Lorraine Grant to visit Tifton, Ga., in October, fully intending to return home to Tonasket in the spring. However, a blood clot in her leg, a badly infected gall bladder that had to be removed, and, ultimately, a failing heart prevented her from getting around very much. She made it through the winter, seeming to gain strength every day. Her great friend Terry Mills flew from Tonasket to spend two weeks with Lorraine in the
spring, helping to restore her good humor and love of life. On the day before she died, we took her out to lunch at Ruby Tuesdayâ€™s. It was the first time in eight months that we had been able to take her to a restaurant. The waitress arrived and asked what weâ€™d like to drink, and Lorraine immediately replied, â€œIâ€™ll have a margarita.â€? She ate salmon and mashed potatoes and shrimp. We laughed and joked. We were happy. The next day, she was gone. So hereâ€™s to Lorraine, or Yvonne, or whomever: Youâ€™re more than a name or a lineage. Youâ€™re the person who made her own way in the world, creating an identity as someone people
around you could always trust. You kept secrets because you didnâ€™t want anyone hurt by supposition and stereotypes. You defined yourself by your actions, and all the things you did that make the world a little better for people around you. I was certainly the beneficiary of that, but I suspect many others were, too. Lorraine said that when she died she wanted people to have a party, and enjoy a good time. That party for Lorraine Wiswell Grant will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 6, at the home of Jerry and Terry Mills, 233 E. 2nd St., Tonasket, Wash. The social hour starts at 5 p.m. and dinner will begin at 6 p.m. Following dinner, everyone will have a chance to
say a few words to remember her, if they choose. She is survived by her son, Thomas, of Tifton, Ga., and his wife, Mary Ann; two grandsons, Sean Connery of Portland, Ore., and his wife, Stacey, and Patrick Connery of Minneapolis, Minn.; and three great grandchildren, Grace Connery, Ireland Connery and Eli Connery. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, and her grandson, Thomas Connery, both in 1991. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Tonasket Community Scholarship Fund at Tonasket High School c/o US Bank, P.O. Box 508, Tonasket, WA 98855.

Stream ecology with Dr. Osgood Highlands Wonders ‘No Bugs, No Fish! SUBMITTED BY JULIE ASHMORE OKANOGAN HIGHLANDS ALLIANCE
CHESAW - On Saturday, July 19th, the Summertime Highland Wonders series brought together a group of lifelong learners to explore the fascinating world of aquatic life in streams. Freshwater ecologist and emeritus professor, Dr. Mark Oswood, traveled to Chesaw from Wenatchee despite road closures in order to share his wealth of experience and knowledge with our community. The event, sponsored by the Okanogan Highlands Alliance, was well attended and began with an indoor presentation in the Chesaw Community Building, which offered an explanation of biological classification, some basics of stream ecology, and how streams take their cues from the land. The audience was pleasantly surprised to discover how captivating aquatic entomology can be when taught by a charismatic instructor who is passionate about his field of study. Combining a keen sense of humor with a well-prepared “Given that these PowerPoint presentation, things are so hard to Oswood held the group’s attenput names on, maybe tion and increased the commuawareness of, as he quoted we don’t need to put nity’s E.O. Wilson, “the small things names on them right that run the world.” He went on to say, “Many of you are away. We can ask bird watchers. But these small what they do. This is things are the nuts and bolts, the cogs in the machinery, the uniquely American and that make life on earth happen. thing: when you meet What I want you to get out of someone you ask them, this is that you could do this as a hobby, as an avocation, just like ‘What do you do?’” bird watching.” Oswood set the group at ease Dr. Mark Oswood, Freshwater Ecologist with an open approach based on understanding the function of aquatic insects and the role that they play in highland streams. “Given that these things are so hard to put names on, maybe we don’t need to put names on them right away,” he said. “We can ask what they do. This is the uniquely American thing: when you meet someone you ask them, ‘What do you do?’” He continued, “Well you can do that with invertebrates too… you can shake a tarsal claw and ask them ‘What do you do?’ and instead of having a name, you get a function. With all the food that comes into streams, we will ask, ‘Do you eat dead leaves? Do you eat green slime? How do you do it?’” The presentation also discussed the role of salmon as a major gift from the sea, and the interconnectedness of the trophic levels. He summed it up with the adage, “No bugs, no fish!” Following the indoor presentation, the group took a field trip to the Myers Creek Mitigation Site north of Chesaw. Oswood began with an overview of the process the group would follow, from observing the kick sampling, to moving the sampled “gork” into tubs, to “bug picking,” to sorting macroinvertebrates by orders into petri dishes. Kick sampling with a D-net provided a wide array of macroinvertebrates to study. Participants gathered around several tables to work on identifying the aquatic insects using laminated charts and magnifying lenses. Among the pickings were mayfly, stonefly, caddisfly and black fly larvae, caddisfly pupae, a dragonfly nymph casing, and even two crayfish! Much laughter and many “ooo’s and ahhh’s” could be heard as Mark shared a variety of interesting anecdotes about how aquatic insects survive and thrive. Oswood is 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. More information about the event, including a full bio, photos, and short audio recordings, can be found at www.okanoganhighlands.org/ education/stream-ecology. The Highland Wonders series will continue to provide high quality educational opportunities for people who are interested in learning more about our local natural world. OHA encourages community members to collect plant photos and specimens throughout the summer, to bring to OHA’s “Evening with the Experts” event on Sept. 26 at the Community Cultural Center of Tonasket, for assistance with identification and information about the plants. Guidelines and details are available at: www.okanoganhighlands. org/education/mystery-plant.

Katherine Joy Workman
KATHERINE JOY WORKMAN Julie Jo Frahm
JULIE JO FRAHM Julie Jo Frahm (RainsberryMattson), age 55, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of July 12th, 2014. Julie proudly knew where and what her heaven was and who was there waiting there for her. She enjoyed all types of music and spent many hours of her life reading. Julie was a daughter, an aunt, a sister, a retired special education teacher, and a loving wife, but a lot her heart belonged to her children and grandchildren. Julie was like a second mom to countless young adults and always had an open heart and home to those who needed it the most. Julie often said the only thing better than having kids was having grand babies. She leaves behind her husband: Fred, her children: Michelle, Laura, David, Gregory, Roberta and James Jr. and her beloved grandchildren: Ryan, Caylee, William, Alexander, Jaxson and Millie. A celebration of her life (not a funeral so please no black) will be held for her on August 23, 2014 at 2 p.m. at the Oroville Free Methodist Church in
Delivered by the hard working hands of her father at the Burbery family ranch outside of Loomis, Wash. Joy was born January 13, 1934 to Samuel Richard â€œDickâ€? Burbery and Lula Lenora (Garrett). She was the youngest of their seven children and was raised with two sisters and four brothers: Harold Richard, Ellen Grace, John Leslie, Iris May, Charles Glen and Robert Lloyd. Joy and all of the Burbery children attended grade school at the Bungalow School in Horse Spring Coulee which was built on land donated by their grandparents Robert and Mary Ellen Garrett. When Joy reached her junior-high years she went to school in Loomis where she completed the eighth grade and in 1952 graduated from the Tonasket High School. On Dec. 26 of that same year she married her long time sweetheart Vernon â€œBuckâ€? Workman. Buck & Joy were married at â€œThe Bungalowâ€? in Tonasket and then moved to a small starter home in Okanogan closer to Buckâ€™s work with the Great Northern Railroad. Two children were born while living there; one daughter, Lula Reneâ€™ and one son Buck Duane. Due to Buckâ€™s job, the family briefly lived in Wilson Creek, Gold Bar, and then on to Tonasket. In the fall of 1962 they
settled permanently in Okanogan where Joy lived until her untimely passing on July 18, 2014 at the age of 80 years due to an untreatable lung cancer. Joy was a hardworking and loving wife, mother and homemaker. She kept a neat home, raised a garden, and when her children were older she went to work packing fruit in Okanogan for nearly 25 years before retiring. She loved her grandchildren dearly and devoted many hours of care for her great-grandchildren. Making them each blankets; crotched hats, afghans, slippers and beautiful bed dolls for each of her great-granddaughters. Joy and Buck were inseparable. They did some traveling with friends and family to destinations such as Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona,Oregon, Missouri, Florida and a train trip to Quebec, Canada. Joy also made a special trip to North Carolina with her mother, sister and niece to visit the family home where her grandfather, Robert Garrett was raised. Of all the places she went, her favorite places were where she could walk on the beaches near an ocean. She loved the sound of the waves and the majesty of a sunrise or sunset over the water brought her much calm, peace and serenity. Joy bowled for many years, took several motorcycle trips with Buck and was an active member of the local Good Sam RV group. Preceding her in death were her father â€œDickâ€? (1972); her mother Lula (2014); her eldest brother Harold (2014) and older sisters Iris Michels (1992) and Ellen Stotts (2012). To celebrate her life Joy leaves behind her devoted husband Buck of 61 years; both of her children RenĂŠ Hinderer (Rob) of LaCrosse, Wash. and Buck Workman (Pat) of Okanogan. Four grandsons; Justin Workman and Jeffrey Workman (Alaura) both of Okanogan and Wesley Hinderer and Wyatt Hinderer both of Spokane; and four greatgrandchildren; Emma Jean, Lainey Mae, Carter Lee, and Carley Rae. She also leaves behind three brothers John Burbery, Chuck (Dickie) Burbery, and Lloyd (Barb) Burbery all of Tonasket and one sister in law Mary Burbery of Oroville, Calif. As well as two brothers in law; Chuck Workman (Marie) of Lewiston, Idaho and Frank Workman of Pullman, Wash. Also remaining are numerous cousins, nieces and nephews on both sides of the
family. Services will be held Saturday August 2, 2014 at 11 a.m. at the Precht - Harrison - Nearents Funeral Chapelat 2547 Elmway St., Okanogan, Wash. with the Pastor Chris Warren officiating.

Lorraine Wiswell Grant
LORRAINE WISWELL GRANT Iâ€™m going to tell you a secret about Lorraine Wiswell Grant, 87, a secret she kept from nearly everyone â€” including her husband and me, her son â€” until she died in Tifton, Georgia, on Friday, July 25, 2014. Lorraine was very private, a trait that served her well as the longtime bookkeeper and credit manager for Lee Frankâ€™s Inc. in Tonasket, Wash. She never talked about people who were late paying bills. She never talked about people the police were investigating, even to her son the investigative reporter. That was â€œnone of your G-D business,â€? as she sometimes told me. Now that she has passed away, however, it does seem our business to understand a little of the roots of her secrecy. In the Internet age, people surrender their privacy every day. Old age forced Lorraine to surrender it, too, when she could no longer see
to read her own emails or clean up after herself. However, privacy still defined her. It gave her strength. The gravel would come in her voice and sheâ€™d say, â€œNone of your business,â€? even as she lay in a bed unable to walk. As long as she controlled information, she was safe. People canâ€™t hurt you with things they donâ€™t know. Lorraineâ€™s secrets began at birth. She was born in Blairmore, Alberta, Canada, on Oct. 3, 1926, to Marguerite Bernadine Wiswell. No father is listed on the birth certificate. In those days people tried not to talk of such things. Lorraine was sent to be raised by her grandmother and uncle in Deary, Idaho. Marguerite remained in Blairmore, became a well-loved school teacher, married and died trying to have a second child. Lorraine was only six, and barely knew her mother, though she would revere her all her life. Lorraineâ€™s name wasnâ€™t mentioned in Margueriteâ€™s obituary. That was one of the things that hurt her all her life. Byron Wiswell, her uncle, became Lorraineâ€™s surrogate father. He was a big, kind, hard working man who farmed, logged and built homes. She rode horses and walked miles to school. Byron took her from the farm in Deary and moved to Moscow, Idaho, where Lorraine graduated from high school in 1944. She attended the University of Idaho for a year, but was forced to drop out for financial reasons. She was poor but practical. She then attended Kinman Business College in Spokane, where she trained to become a bookkeeper. After graduating, she moved to Tonasket, where she eventually landed a job at Lee Frankâ€™s, the oldest general store in Okanogan County. Lee Frank gave her the most important thing in her life â€” respect. What mattered to Lee Frank was not the past but the present. What mattered was that she that she treated people fairly and honestly, and took care of the business. She did for more than 50 years. She met Joseph Charles Grant and they eloped to be married in Dayton, Wash., in 1950. They bought a house on the hill in Tonasket, Wash. I was born, Thomas Arthur Grant, in 1953, their only child. Her best friends seemed to be the women on her bowling team â€” Elenore Rampley, Gay Utzinger, Grace Yount and Pauline Sarff. Joe went on fishing trips and they went on bowl-
ing trips. She loved the practical jokes they played on each other â€” hopping out of the car at red lights and running around it, or painting pink all the walnuts on Utzingerâ€™s tree. Lorraine loved to travel. In her lifetime, she traveled all across the United States, Canada and Mexico. She would visit the home of her ancestors in Wiswell, England, and Kennebunkport, Maine. The fact that some of those ancestors fought at Lexington was a point of pride. She traveled to American cemeteries in France and battle sites on Midway Island. She wanted to travel to Ireland next, were she able. When I was young, every time we drove on vacation, Lorraine would make an extra stop or two, pulling up in some dusty driveway with barking dogs, walking to the door and having a quiet conversation with the people inside. I would later figure out that the side trips were her way of privately asking people to pay their bills. She could be gruff, and straightforward, but she tried to give people every chance to take care of their debts without stirring up a fuss. She knew all the people who had credit at Lee Franks, and they mattered to her. If she wanted people to pay, she had to keep lines of communication open. One time, while Lorraine was away, a clerk at the store sold a gun, ammo, and a bag of groceries â€” on credit â€” to a woman who lived in the hills near Tonasket. Lorraine knew the woman was having trouble with her husband, immediately got in her car and drove to the isolated home. The woman was sitting on her porch with the rifle on her lap, drinking from a fifth of whiskey. She told Lorraine that when her husband got back home, she was gong to shoot him. Lorraine convinced her to give back the rifle â€” no charge, and she could keep the groceries â€” and to move to a womenâ€™s shelter. She worked six days a week at Lee Frankâ€™s until she was nearly 80, climbing the stairs to her office on replacement knees and hips. For years, Lorraine served on a juvenile diversion board, trying to help young people in trouble find a better path. She heard many stories. And she kept them to herself. But tough as she was, her emotions ran close to the surface. I remember when she learned that her granddaughter,
