OSD adopts $8.5 million 2014-15 budget Oroville School Director Brad Scott resigns atlarge board position BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE – The Oroville School Board adopted a 2014-15 budget of nearly $8.5 million -- about $24,000 more than the previous year’s budget. The budget includes General Fund Expenditures of $7,203,202; Transportation Vehicle Fund, $150,000; Capital Projects Fund, $470,000; Debt Service Fund, $504,606 and Associated Student Body Fund, $136,500.

In addition, the district contracted with the Okanogan School District for the school psychologist for the 2014-15 school year. Earlier in the evening, under “Good News and Announcements,” Superintendent Steve Quick reported that the district did well in their annual Washington State Patrol Bus Inspection. “For a number of years we’ve passed our inspection because of the person that works there,” said Quick. “If you see Jim (Bretz) say, ‘Good job.’” Quick said the district had traded in the old van for a 2008 van with 25,000 miles that looked brand new. The van holds eight passengers and a driver, with
County fires still smolder
SCENE OF THE CRIME
New fire near Toroda Creek Road snuffed out at less than 150 acres
Search continues for two other drowning victims
OKANOGAN COUNTY - Smoke continued to fill Okanogan County as the Carlton Complex fire in the southern half of the county continued to smolder, though as of Tuesday, Aug. 5, Incident Command had declared the fire 90 percent contained. Two new fires ignited during the past week, including one near Toroda Mountain about 10 miles northwest of Republic on Tuesday, July 29. That fire topped out at 140 acres, according to the Okanogan County Sheriff ’s Office. By Wednesday, air support had knocked down the fire. Firefighters completed a bulldozer line around the fire and were engaged in mop-up operations. The fire forced localized Level 2 and Level 3 evacuations in the West Fort Cougar Creek Road area.

OROVILLE – The body of a missing Canadian man, believed drowned in Osoyoos Lake near Veranda Beach, Friday was located by divers Sunday evening. The Okanogan County Sheriff ’s office received a report on at 1:40 p.m. of a possible drowning last Friday. “The Sheriff ’s Office boat and deputies arrived at the lake to learn that John M. Mele, 43, of Surrey BC had been on a boat just off shore when he did a back flip into the water. Mele began to surface and then went back under the water and disappeared,” said Sheriff Frank Rogers. The sheriff said that rescue divers located the body of Mele with the help of approximately 10 divers from Canada, some civilian and others with a response team, using sophisticated sonar equipment. “They were able to locate the body of Mele last (Sunday) night and then direct divers to his location. Mele’s family has been on scene since the accident and were there last night when he was located,” Rogers said. According to the sheriff this is the fourth drowning in Okanogan County this year. Another body was recovered last Friday evening from the Okanogan River in Okanogan. It was identified as Malcolm C. Tervo, 64, who had been missing since November 2013. The search for Darrel L. Williams, 57, a retired U.S. Border Patrol agent, believed drowned in Palmer Lake on July 11, continues, said Rogers. 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 all right 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 resurfaced, according Sheriff Rogers. Williams’ partner immediately dove in and tried to locate him but was unable to find him. Divers have searched the lake several times but have had no success. In addition, the body of Kenneth J. Leslie, 46, of Sedro Woolley, Wash., who drowned in the Columbia River on July 4, has not been found.
individual seats, not benches like the old van had. “Mr. (Ed) Naillon has been working very hard to get the library system online so kids will be able to search the card catalog at home and at school,” said Quick. “He also is getting Overdrive working with the same system so they can search that as well.” Overdrive is a system that allows students to check out electronic books. “I am pretty excited… we’ve already have had some teachers buy electronic books so they will be available to be checked out,” Quick said. Staff has been invited to talk with representatives from VIP Insurance about health care coverage. “Premera went up 17 percent last year and will be going up seven percent again this year. So rates keep going up as does the co-pay,” said Quick. “Premera has great coverage, but also has rates that are commiserate.”

Man stabbed several times BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE – Police are investigating an assault on an Oroville man who was stabbed several times, including in the chest and back and once in the head. John R. Omer, 58, was found bleeding the morning of Thursday, July 31 in his residence in back of the old blacksmith’s shop at 1 Balmes Rd, just north of the Cherry Street Bridge. Omer was found by his landlord who called emergency services and the victim was then transported to North Valley Hospital in Tonasket, according to Sheriff Frank Rogers. He was later transported to Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. Several sheriff ’s deputies, including Chief Criminal Deputy David Rodriguez, encircled the scene with yellow police tape.
OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE Volume 110 No. 32
They were seen gathering evidence and sealing it in evidence bags that afternoon. An evidence tag with the number one could also be seen. At the scene Rodriguez said it was too early to speculate how the assault occurred or who committed it. “We have executed a search warrant at the residence and are finished up there now. We have no suspects at this time and no one in custody,” said Sheriff Rogers on Thursday, adding, “At the scene Omer was very uncooperative and refused to tell our guys anything.” The Okanogan Sheriff ’s Department had a detective in Spokane and the sheriff said he sent her to interview Omer in the hospital there. “He is still being uncooperative... he keeps telling us he doesn’t know what happened,” said Rogers. The case is still under investigation
CARLTON COMPLEX UPDATE According to the Tuesday, August 5, InciWeb report on the Carlton Complex, the fire was holding steady at 255,164 acres (including the Rising Eagle Fire referenced above) and was 90 percent contained, with 1,657 personnel on hand for firefighting efforts. Resources on hand included three Type 1 hand crews, 22 Type 2 hand crews, 12 Type 2 initial attack crews, 100 engines and 27 water tenders. The were

NEW FIRE IN THE METHOW The other new fire of significance added to the continuing fire-related woes in the Methow Valley. According to the Sheriff ’s office, a vehicle towing a trailer traveling west on Highway 20 out of Twisp got a flat tire on the trailer. When the rim hit the roadway it sent up sparks and started a fire in the brush which spread from Signal Hill Road, west over Rising Eagle Road, Hill Road and over to Wandling Road. The fire destroyed several residences and property. The trailer in question has been impounded by the Okanogan County Sheriff ’s Office and the Department of Natural Resources Investigators are investigating the fire. As of Tuesday afternoon, Level 2 evacuations were in effect on Upper Bear Creek Road and East Chewuch Road, and Pearrygin Lakes State Park was closed.

bolstered from the air by four Type 1 helicopters, four Type 2 helicopters, five Type 3 helicopters and one air support. Status and work included line completion on the northwestern portion of the fire near Pearrygin Lake. Crews also worked hard on the western portion of the interior island and the area south of Loup Loup Ski Area to strengthen lines. Two lightning caused fires were located and suppressed along Highway 20 in the Sportmans Camp area.
Night crews patrolled various areas of the fire line, completing mop-up as needed. Operational priorities included: patrol and mop-up the Rising Eagle Road Fire, strengthen the line along the northwest edge (near Pearrygin Lake), and improve interior lines on the western portion of the interior island. The rest of the fire perimeter will be in patrol and mop-up status. Crews are also cleaning up the fire area by returning unneeded
equipment and supplies back to the Incident Command Post (ICP). IC reported that air resources continue to play a vital role in the successful containment of this complex and are also supporting suppression efforts on the Little Bridge Creek Fire and initial attack on new fires. The Temporary Flight Restriction on the south portion of the fire has been lifted to facilitate east/west air travel for other fires and the public.
Fishing is still really great in the Conconully area, according to Gene Bussell of Liar’s Cove Resort. Bass fishing has stepped up, with nice small mouth bass are being caught. This bass was caught under the Liar’s Cove Resort dock by Fahrudin Bajramovic and his son from Lynnwood, Wa. This bass, caught July 22, weighed in 6.2 lbs and was 22 inches long. Fahrudin was jigging with a night crawler. Most everybody is still fishing either in the middle of the reservoir or over by the dam using Power Bait. Bussell said he had one fisherman buy all of his Rainbow Power Eggs so she could out fish her son. Last week Bussell got a report from Jack MacDonald from Fort Meyers, FL, a campers that went out and caught his limit of trout in just over an hour. Bass fishing has really been great, and our kids just love to catch the small mouths from under the dock. Bussell said that there has hardly been any smoke at the resortm which has not been threatened by the fires. He said that bad press on the coast we has caused many cancellations.

The girls had a booth at the Molson Schoolhouse 100 Year Celebration. There are only 10 nesting pairs of Common Loons left in Washington State. It costs between $6000 to $7000 a year for loon banding in the states northeast region, according to Ginger Poleschook, who helps coordinate the banding. This pays for about a week of banding, plus airfare and all expenses, she said. The young wildlife preservationist, age eight, has been interested in helping to save loons since she was four-years-old. She girl was manning her booth in the Molson Grange Hall until about noon. She puts several hours into making the greeting cards she sells for this good cause, according to her mother, Julie Ashmore, Conservation Coordinator for the Okanogan Highlands Alliance.
Our Values: Putting people first • Outstanding corporate citizenship • High performance culture • Rigorous financial discipline
Summer hires earn college cash, valuable experience Kinross Kettle River - Buckhorn (KRB) hires young adults each summer through our summer hire program. Each year since Buckhorn began operating, we have hired between 10 to 15 graduating seniors or returning college students from the local area. These temporary employees are assigned to work in various aspects of the mining and milling operations as well as the administration and exploration departments. This summer, the KRB operation has hired 12 temporary summer employees. Nine of these were graduating seniors from Republic and Curlew High Schools; the rest returned from college and had worked here previously. The summer hires take on a variety of tasks. Some students have worked in the assay lab, where they learn the process of evaluating ore samples to determine gold content. Others work for exploration, where they split core and better understand the fundamentals of Matt Wade in the assay lab. an exploration program. Still others work in the maintenance and mechanics departments, gaining practical experience with safely maintaining machinery and heavy equipment. Students have also had an opportunity to work with our Environmental Department, learning about sampling and water monitoring, as well as mitigation and reclamation programs where they learned the proper use of shovels and picks. Other summer employee opportunities have included working with our information technology, safety, human resources and corporate responsibility departments.
I’ve really loved my experience at Kinross this summer. The practical knowledge that I’ve gained by working here will surely benefit me further down the road. In addition to working in an industrial environment where safety is key, I Kodie McQuay prepares rock have learned samples for fire assay. many of the different processes that are involved in mining gold and the whole operation is extremely interesting. I have worked with many of the different departments and everyone has been nice and very informative. The employees of Kinross have helped me adjust to the life of mining and they have taught me how to be safe while doing it. Add all that to the opportunity for me to earn some money to help pay for college and I would say that this job has been a really great deal for me and surely the rest of the summer hires. - Kodie McQuay The summer hire experience provides young people in our communities with an opportunity to learn that there is much more to a responsible, safe, clean and successful mining operation than may originally meet the eye. It provides these young adults with an opportunity to get some realworld, hands-on experience, and has even resulted in some students changing their majors as a result of their positive experience at KRB. They come away from their summer adventure with a new appreciation for the industry, and often with a better idea of what they do or don’t want to focus on as a
post-college career. As a recent high school graduate with no prior work experience, I am very grateful for an opportunity to have a full time job with the Kinross Gold Corporation. At first, I was a little bit apprehensive about going to work in a mine; I had no idea what to expect. However, it didn’t take long for me to realize that there was nothing to be worried about. We had safety training and were provided with all of the necessary protective equipment, and everyone is always very friendly and ready to help. Though I have only been working here for just over a month, I have already learned so much. All of the supervisors have been patient with questions and seem to enjoy educating the summer hires on the processes of the mine and mill. This is an incredible chance for college students, like myself, to gain work experience and real world knowledge, while earning money for college. - Claire McIntyre Since the program began, some of the summer hires have even come back in subsequent years as interns for specific college programs, and some have Claire McIntyre prepares rock ultimately resamples for fire assay. turned to their hometown to work at Kinross full time. This year, we have four interns – three of whom began as temporary summer hires from the local area. The program has been a successful venture, and the employees at KRB are pleased to be able to provide these training opportunities for our local youth.

In 1913 the Tonasket Times ran a promotional map under the headline ‘All Roads Lead to Tonasket’ that illustrated how the town was truly the busy hub and focal point of many roads. People come to Tonasket for commerce, school and entertainment – for community. Whether it be roads to the west from Loomis and the many lakes recreation area and the Senlehikin Wildlife area, to the north from Oroville and Canada beyond, to the northeast from Havillah, Sitzmark and the Okanogan Highlands, to the south and Riverside, Omak and Okanogan or to the east and Wauconda, Republic and beyond – all roads truly seem to lead to Tonasket. That 1913 illustration was why the late Henry Colbert and Elva Helm decided to use the All Roads Lead to Tonasket theme for their historical compilation of the same title. Their book commemorated Tonasket’s 75th anniversary, which took place in 1985.

Tumbleweed Film Festival has ‘best fest’ ever BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE - If the comments in the local restaurants and bars, as well as on social media are to believed, Oroville’s Tumbleweed Film Festival had one of its best years yet. This unique film festival shows short films from around the world. Now in its fifth year, attracted around 300 viewers over four nights and four venues. “It is great to see so many new faces and people who are enthusiastic about what we’re doing,” said Maureen “Mo” Fine, who started the festival in 2010 with fellow filmmaker Geoff Klein. “We really had a fun crowd come out and support each night,” adds Klein “The films are great, but the venues and the audiences really make each night special.”. For the adults, the festival kicked off with a showing of “Best of Fest” films that won the hearts and votes of Tumbleweed goers at past year’s festivals. This event took place on Wednesday at the courtesy of the two Vickis – Vicki Hinze, who offered a special gathering at the Pastime Bar and Grill Vicki Hart (and Walt too) who offered Vicki’s Back Door Club to show that night’s films. The second night was Family Night and was offered at half price to kids and adults alike and featured family-friendly offerings with lots of animation. Sandy Lorentzen, unofficial Tumbleweed Ambassador, talked about how the Oroville High School Auditorium was turned into a movie theater for a night and how many people really enjoyed the experience with one woman telling her that her children had never seen a movie in a theater setting before. On Friday, the Tumbleweed rolled, or should we say the screen was walked the short distance through town from Vicki’s to Alpine Brewery where it found itself on familiar territory, hanging on the wall of the brew pub, owned by Bart Traubeck, the town’s local brew master. The evening featured Traubeck’s German-style beers and bratwurst from festival sponsor Uli’s Sausages. Uli’s is the official “Wurst of the Fest.” Saturday, the screen took a leisurely pickup ride south of Oroville to Esther Bricques Winery. In addition to providing a cool barrel room to view the movies, winery owners Steve and Linda Colvin paired lots of fine food with their awardwinning vintages, as well as music from local talent Sandra Vaughn. This year’s “Best of Fest” Audience Award went to The Gunfighter which was shown at Alpine Brewing. The film, from the USA, was directed by Erik Kissak. It’s a hilarious wild west tale of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon full of dangerous characters, who can hear his thoughts and are not happy with what they hear. “People liked some of the movies so much, like the Computers, that they wanted to give them 5 stars on the 1 to 5 scale,” said Lorenzen.
THIS YEAR’S RUNNER-UPS 1. The Computers (USA) Directed by Kate McMahon – An inspiring story of how six gifted young women programmed the first all-electronic digital computer, the ENIAC, as part of a secret WWII project. 2. About Ndugu (Spain) Director David Munoz - Filmed in Africa, an African boy receives a letter from his American foster father, Mr. Schmidt, who just lost his wife. Ndugu sets out to find a new wife for him. 3. Strings – (Spain) Directed by Pedro Solis – This heartwarming animation follows a school girl, Maria, whose routine at school is altered by the arrival of a very special child. They soon become close friends. 4. Mr. Invisible (UK) – Directed by Greg Ash –The day in a life of a lonely, old man, who seems invisible to the world around him. When he journeys to the heart of London, his being “invisible” proves to be his greatest weapon. 5. In Passing (USA) - Directed by Alan Miller – Two lonely people who jump off a building to end their lives meet on the way down and discover it’s never too late to fall in love. Best of Last Year’s Best - Penny Dreadful (USA) – Directed by Shane Atkinson – The tale of a kidnapping that goes very wrong. A plot that twists and turns with humorous suspense and an unexpected outcome. About the Best of Fest at Vicki’s Back Door Club, Fine said, “People cheered at the return of their favorite movies. “People were coming up to us to talk about some of their favorite films from years before. The films really stick in people’s mines. And that’s pretty cool.” Penny Dreadful was shown at Vicki’s and made a special encore return to Alpine Brewery. “The next day people were posting on Facebook quotes from Penny Dreadful,” said Fine. About the future of the film festival Klein sees an expanding list of venues. “We had the best showing of film-goers this year, so hopefully we can continue to continue to add other venues in Oroville and Tonasket in 2015,” he said. “We’re already starting to plan for next year, so keep your eye out for Tumbleweed 6.” Next year Tumbleweed is also hoping to continue working with some of the area schools to develop a young filmmaker contest, where some of the best films will be shown each night. The organizers said they wanted to give special thanks to the venues - Special Thanks to Venues – Vicki’s Back Door, Alpine Brewery, Oroville High School and Esther Bricques and to their sponsors – Kinross Gold, Veranda Beach Resort, Pastime Bar and Grill, the Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune (Sound Publishing), Hometown Pizza, Camaray Motel, Oroville Chamber of Commerce and Oroville Mini Storage. The also wanted to thank their “projectionist extaordinaire” Tam Hutchinson who started out running the projector at the high school and volunteered to run it at the next three night’s venues as well. The Tumbleweed Film Festival is a Washington-based non-profit organization committed to bringing the art of storytelling through filmmaking to the Okanogan and British Columbia.

AUGUST 7, 2014 | OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE
THE TOWN CRIER The film festival experience The Tumbleweed Film Festival continues to expand in Oroville and this year appeared for the first time at four venues over four days. It takes a lot of work for the event’s co-founders, Mo Fine and Geoff Klein, to put on each year, but to them it’s a “labor of love.” The Seattle filmmakers have been coming to the Okanogan, particularly Oroville, for a number of years. Klein, is a friend of mine from college and I met Mo through him and became friends with her as well. They wanted to offer an event for the short format film. They realized how hard it was to find venues for filmmakers and that the competition to get your film in one of the bigger festivals can be fierce, as well as expensive. So in 2010 they combined their love of short films with their love of the Okanogan and began the Tumbleweed Film Festival. For Out of venues they decided to showcase the area’s My Mind burgeoning wine industry as well as Oroville’s Gary A. DeVon own brewery, by holding the festival at Alpine Brewery and Esther Bricques Winery. With “Drink Locally, Watch Globally” as their motto, the Tumbleweed, as they are fond of saying, “rolled into town.” Over the years the festival expanded to three nights and added venues like Veranda Beach Resort and the Pastime Bar & Grill. This year it added Vicki’s Back Door Club and the Oroville High School commons, as well as their premier locations at the winery and the brewery. I think they may have struck on just the right combination this year, with Vicki’s having a “Best of Fest” lineup following a special event at the Pastime and the school venue featuring family-friendly films, mostly animation, at a family-friendly price. The school event is one we need to work on a bit; all the kids and parents that attended indicated they liked the films and hopefully word will get out and more will attend next year. It was close to being sold out at Bart’s brewery and at Steve and Linda’s winery. We could have squeezed in a few more at both, but not a whole lot. The numbers were good overall, with a count of 224 for all four venues. Many of the attendees were from Oroville and Okanogan County but they came from Canada and the Spokane and Seattle areas, as well. While two attendees, including another of my college friends, travelled all the way from Omaha, Nebraska – April Chappulcu and her son, visiting from Istanbul, Turkey, definitely took the prize and added to the international flavor that Tumbleweed promotes. Geoff and Mo hope to work further with the school and connected with Tam Hutchinson, who volunteered as our projectionist not only at the commons, but for all four events. Tam even saw a few films he might be able to work into some of his classes. The festival takes a lot of work that most of us don’t see, such as screening the films and maintaining a website, as well as dozens of little things. In addition to our gracious hosts – Linda, Steve, Bart, Vicki, and the high school, there are some great volunteers that have helped set up over the years. And, in addition to that the festival has some outstanding sponsors who help to defray some of the costs. Who would have thought “a labor of love” could be so costly? Our audiences are great and deserve a big hand. I declare the Tumbleweed a success.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Commander’s thanks to the local communities Dear Editor, On behalf of California Interagency Incident Management Team 4, I want to express my personal thanks to the local communities for the goodwill and cooperation we received as we fought the Carlton Complex Fire in the South Zone. Our firefighters, information officers and other emergency personnel met with many people in multiple local communities directly affected by the fire. They heard heartbreaking and heartwarming stories about how the fire affected them. We are glad we had a chance to provide people with fire information and caring ears. We also appreciate the thank you signs, personal words of thanks and the many other forms of gratitude that were shown to the firefighters. These generous actions have reflected great credit on the affected communities and will be remembered as truly making a difference in the lives of these dedicated firefighters. We accomplished what we did with support from local, state, and federal agencies and organizations all working toward common objectives. Many people and resources from local agencies and organizations were part of the team effort. As we depart, I recognize that the outpouring of love and appreciation was made at a time when the communities were experiencing the stress of a major wildfire. I sincerely wish you all the best in the days ahead. Rocky W. Opliger Incident Commander, California Interagency Incident Management Team 4
Don’t add to hardship of the fire displaced Dear Editor, Hello, I am writing today with a large concern for those who have been displaced by the Carlton Complex Fires. Many of these people and families have been placed at the Okanogan Fairgrounds by the Red Cross, however with the Omak Stampede around the corner, they are moving the firefighters to the fairgrounds. And with them the Inmate firefighters. Yesterday, all of these people and families were told they would have to vacate the fairgrounds by this Saturday, Aug. 2, due to the inmates being at the fairgrounds and they did not want them among them. When asked where they should go, they were told to ask the Red Cross, the same Red Cross who told them to go to the fairgrounds. So now, these people and families who have lost everything are being told to leave. These families who have been through so much already, are once again homeless. I was also informed that the local hotels are kicking families out who are staying in the hotels so that people who are coming for the Stampede can stay there. I am ashamed to live in a community that is putting a rodeo before the hearts of these people who have already
lost everything. Many have said we need the Stampede to move forward so we can put the fire behind us, but for those who have lost their homes, and much more, they can not just put it behind them. And now we are making it even harder on them. What will happen when the fair comes? They will move the fire fighters back to the Stampede Grounds? Do not get me wrong, I am beyond thankful for all of the firefighters, including the inmate ones, but there has to be another place to place them so that we do not put further hardship on these families. Stephanie Bedard Omak
Stroke Group celebrates first anniversary Dear Editor, On Thursday, July 31, 2014, the Okanogan Stroke Support Group, founded by Linda Heagy, celebrated its one year anniversary. The gathering was held at Veteran’s Park in Oroville in the covered pavilion. Rosa Snyder, who operates the concession stand in the park, offered each of the attendees a complimentary ice cream cone. The regular meetings are held the last Thursday of the month at 10:30AM at the YAC, located at 607 Central Avenue in Oroville. There are educational CD’s, guest speakers, lots of supportive talk, and refreshments. The group is registered with the American and National Stroke Associations. Anyone who has had a stroke, no matter how long ago, is welcome. For more information, you can call or text 509-560-0740. David Wolosik Oroville
Now we’re big fans of the Okanogan Valley Dear Editor, I am a cyclist who was on her way from Seattle to Glacier National Park in Montana with her cousin, Sam. Sam and I rode through Okanogan, Omak and Tonasket. We met helpful people along the way and tent camped behind the Visitors’ Center building in Tonasket where they have a convenient “bikers only” campsite. On our ride east from Tonasket, I ended up with heat stroke and was kindly taken to the North Valley Hospital by a Good Samaritan mystery woman. I don’t remember who she was but wanted to express my gratitude to her for getting me out of a very serious situation. I was treated with the best care I’ve ever received by the doctors, nurses, and staff at NVH. They really went above and beyond.
I’d just like to put my “thank you” out there to the friendly people of Tonasket. Not only to the mystery Good Samaritan and hospital folk, but also to the town for having a bikers camping site and to the locals for giving warm “hellos.” This Texas girl and her Wisconsin cousin are now big fans of the Okanogan Valley! Grace Riley San Marcos, Texas
Cable across river turned out to be a lifeline Dear Editor, A very BIG thank you for whom ever put the cable and ropes above Enloe Dam, it works-we put our gold dredge on a pontoon boat for the season, left camp and the motor stalled, we could not get it going and if not for the ropes and cable? We pulled ourself to shore with the ropes hand over hand. Went home, gold dredging is a LOT harder then I ever thought. We’ll be back. Thanks again, Chuck Swift Custer, Washington
Supports David Rodriguez for coroner Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in support of Dave Rodriguez as your Okanogan County Coroner. When someone dies and the death is not expected the coroner must visit the scene to document the death before the person can be moved. The coroner comes into your home or the scene of the death and helps you manage the process. Most family members and friends are still in a state of confusion and disbelief when the coroner arrives. It is essential that the coroner is respectful and compassionate while still be professional and detail oriented. I have worked with Dave in this environment many times. His skills and talents are exceptional. I first met Dave in 1990 when he became a volunteer EMT with our organization. At that time he was the Law Enforcement Officer for the USFS. When Dave became employed by the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office as deputy I worked closely with him in Search and Rescue operations and daily duties as a deputy. I support Dave as our County Coroner because I have worked with him for 24 years and know he will do a great job as our coroner. Cindy Button Paramedic Twisp
Ahh... Okanogan County OPINION BY BILL SLUSHER
Ahh... Okanogan County, so dry the salt always shakes, the sugar always pours, nothing rusts and nothing rots. And the place burns like Hades all summer. This year the Beast is hungry. Ahh... Okanogan County. Last week, my best friend drove me to Moses Lake to get a spinal shot to relieve pain from a sciatica operation that hasn’t gone well. We drove through road blinding wildfire Bill Slusher smoke, an ash/wind storm towering 2000 feet high, and later a heavy rain storm with 50 mph winds. In one 240 mile round trip. Ahh... Okanogan County. This week, with my wife driving, we struck 110 miles for Wenatchee for a yet a second shot. (One must chase down and lasso circuitriding medical specialists in the inland Pacific Northwest. This ain’t Kansas, Toto.) This needle seems to hit the Mother Lode. Great reduction in pain. Rumors of my demise exaggerated. Afterward, I guided poor Linda out of Wenatchee onto Hwy. 97 and aimed her north in our new Chevy Tahoe with which she is not familiar. I reclined the seat and crashed asleep due to exhaustion and heavy meds. I woke up later with Linda shaking me: “Bill, you really, really need to wake up.” We were safely parked well off on the shoulder of Hwy. 97. Way-to-go, Linda. “It just quit running,” Linda said. “I don’t know why!” I did. I remembered checking fuel at two-
thirds full when we left Omak for Wenatchee that morning - plenty to get there - but I also remember I was too doped and tired afterward to think about refueling for the trip home when we left Wenatchee about noon. My bad. Sure enough, the fuel gauge was pegged on empty. We’re in the middle of nowhere at milepost 272 way south of Malott. Nothing in site for miles but blackened sagebrush stalks and rocks. My cell phone says: “Fahgeddaboudit, Pilgrim, you may as well be calling from Mars.” 105 degrees. No traffic. Ahh... Okanogan County. I raise the hood, lock the car, tell Linda come on, we’re hitchhiking for the first time in half a century. She says nobody picks up hitchhikers. I say ahh... this is Okanogan County, nobody’s going to leave two fossils on the freaking highway in this heat. Thumb out. Sure enough, the first vehicle to arrive is two cowboys in a pickup truck towing horses. They want to help but they’re en route to Stampede, their truck’s so full of rodeo stuff they can’t haul us. Ahh... Okanogan County. They ask us can they call someone when they get to Omak? I say, thanks, no, somebody else will stop. Somebody else does, an apparently Mexican woman in a minivan with about eight grinning kids. “Ju OK, Senor?” she asks. I try to explain, yes. She says something in Spanish about “niños,” too many kids to haul us. Ahh... Okanogan County. She smiles and nods and drives away. “Gracias!” we call. Bless her heart. Two men pull in driving a mini-pickup and a trailer, both piled to the gunnels with battered old furniture. Many such folk on America’s road’s in search of jobs in this
economy. They apologize for having no space. They offer a bottle of water which I take with thanks. You never turn down water in Okanogan County in the summer. Even people who can’t give us a ride are stopping to be sure we’re alright. No car has passed us yet. Ahh... Okanogan County. Out of the heat-wobbled distance come two women in a minivan who pull in, a mother and her driving daughter. Their van is loaded, and their back seat is made into a bed, but they quickly throw the bed in the back, and away we go. They say they live near Tonasket, so, to try to put them at ease, I figure I’ll say I’m Bill Slusher, you may have read my column in the area paper. I get out: “I’m Bill Slusher, you -” and the older woman shrieks: “I knew it! I knew it! I read all your columns! I love what you say!” She pumps her fist in the air. “Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yessss!” I’ve had a few positive critiques of my socio-political writing, some from pros, but none as memorable or valued as this one. Ahh... Okanogan County. It’s all downhill from there. They drive us right to the ranch with delight all around. Linda and I plunk a six gallon can of ATV gas in her Honda and go to retrieve the Tahoe. As I’m refueling with the gas can a Washington State Trooper stops and asks if we’re OK. I say yeah, thanks, we just got stupid and let ourselves run out of gas. He gives me a look that plainly says: “Ahh... Okanogan County.” 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 | AUGUST 7, 2014
OKANOGAN VALLEY LIFE Washington still good place to call home A week into August, already, and it is HOT, HOT, HOT! We were away a few days and most places we were the thermometers were getting a work-out, reaching to elevations way beyond the norm. As we were in the areas of many rivers, both large and small we saw many rafters and tubers having fun. As one drives along the Columbia and Snake rivers and others, it seems unreal that many states have real water shortages. Although there have been devastating fires in our area, Washington is still a pretty good place to call home. But gas was lots cheaper in Idaho. A visit with Elaine Burton, Clayton’s sister, was the purpose of this outing. Now, I think we are pretty much caught up visiting family. She lives in Clarkston,
Watch out for pirates near Curlew SUBMITTED BY MARIANNE KNIGHT HIGHLANDS CORRESPONDENT
Well so far so good. As far as I know it all went through and everyone received what they were supposed to. Have you ever been confronted by a three-year-old pirate? Just the fact that I am asking you this question you know that I have. Let me set the scene. The day was Thursday, in the midafternoon, at the campground at Black’s Beach, at Lake Curlew. The day was beautiful,with blue skies and white clouds and the sun was shining and it was warm. The family was all gathered for their yearly 10 days at the lake. A couple of days before they had a rainstorm or two, to cool off from

Omak has their Stampede starting Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday next week while right here in Oroville the Senior Center is sponsoring a Stampede Breakfast with Center President James Gutschmidt who will be serving up pancakes. and probably eggs, bacon and coffee and/or juice, while the Center ladies will bring their baked goods to sell.

Preparing for the upcoming fair SUBMITTED BY JOSEPH ENZENSPERGER
Summer gardens are in full swing here in Oroville and hopefully everyone is getting a healthy dose of local homegrown vegetables and fruit. We had a productive monthly Grange meeting on Wednesday, July 16, with 11 members and two guests in attendance. This is the Oroville Grange news update. If you haven’t heard, the Oroville grange is creating a professionally produced, monopoly style board game with local businesses, organizations, institutions and individuals, filling up the spaces on our “North Valley-opoly” board game. Cindy Nelson is heading up the effort this month and planning to stop by many local businesses to seek their involvement and support. It is a fundraiser for the Grange and our Scholarship fund. Okanogan County Fair is coming up Sept. 3 through Sept. 7. Ideas and creative energies are needed to put the Grange Fair entry together. The first working group meeting will be held at the Oroville Grange on Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. (prior to this 8/7 issue of the Gazette-Tribune ). Please contact Betty Steg 509-4763878 if you would like to get in on this fun activity. The Grange is continuing to improve our Kitchen facilities at the Oroville Grange at 7th and
Wash. and only a river divides her from Lewiston, ID. She has multiple health problems but still manages, somehow, to be in her own home. To drive through Pateros and parts nearby, is sad. To burn sagebrush is one thing but to totally destroy homes and the entire furnishings, sometimes pets, is a whole different story. No amount of insurance money can replace the photos and other collectibles, but life has to go on. The weekend of Aug. 9th the annual Omak Stampede will be held. On Aug. 9 in Oroville the Senior Citizens will be having a Stampede breakfast and bake sale. The menu will be the usual good things like sausage, eggs and pancakes and serving will be from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Cooks from our
HILLTOP COMMENTS the 90-100 degree heat that it had been the week before. I must tell you here just what family this is. Most of the families (yes, more than one) are Merrits and they have been camping here for more than 20 years. The rest of the campers are significant others and close friends. It is quite a sight to see. A cook tent, then at least a dozen tents, scattered near by along with chairs for sunbathing or napping. There were also a couple of picnic tables that had been pushed together for cover because of the previous rain. You might be asking how are we related to this group? Our daughter is married into this large family. I found a spot at the end of one of the tables and made myself comfortable. When, out of nowhere came this bundle of

On the Aug. 15, Harold Rounds and his guitar playing buddy, Mike Chapple, will be here to provide us with some music. Harold plays bass and Mike plays the guitar. They both sing. They will join us for lunch and then play and sing for us afterward. Linda Heagy will be with us on the Aug. 5 to share more information on strokes and its mostly devasting effects on the
OROVILLE GRANGE NEWS Fir streets. Several local market bakers are considering use of the kitchen one to two days a week. This will help the Grange serve our community and support our building. It was decided to charge $20/day for use of kitchen. Contact Betty Steg 509-4763878, if you are also interested in renting our Baking Kitchen.

His name is Chase and he not quite three feet tall, but talks all of the time and if you don’t understand what he is saying he will repeat it again and again ‘til you do. He started out as a happy Pirate and then ARRRGH! he wanted to walk the plank. And did, time after time. He would climb up on the bench of the picnic table and jump of the end. In climbing back up one time he ended in my lap and found that was not going to work and leaned back and looked me right in the eye and said “Get Off My Ship” and proceeded to hit me on top of my head with his talking sword. ARRRGH! This is a happening that I will soon not forget. ARRRGH! The next big events to happen on our Hilltop will be on Aug. 30 with the Hot August Nights in Chesaw and the Quilt Show in Molson.

in this fun and useful community event. Our next Flea Market will be Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Everything on the tables will be fresh because the Oroville Grange donated our previous Flea Market inventory to victims of the Carlton Complex Fire. Tables are $5, space available. Give Betty a call if you can help or donate 509-476-3878. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, Aug. 13 at the Oroville Grange, located on the corner of 7th and Fir. It will begin with a family oriented dinner prepared by Grange member, Jessica Russell, at 6 p.m. This dinner will provide a social community atmosphere and solve the problem of getting in a meal before the Grange Meeting at 7 p.m. Bring the whole family. We would like more young families in our organization. All Donations benefit the Grange.

OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE | AUGUST 7, 2014
Dr. Karl Lillquist discusses the impact of glaciers on the landscape during OHA’s 2013 Geology of the Okanogan Highlands Tour.
Geology of A gambol with the Geezers the Okanogan Highlands
Emerging mostly unscathed from Blodgett Canyon in Montana’s Selway Bitterroot Wilderness last week were (l-r) George Baumgartner, Andre Corso, Ernie Bolz, Dean Hiser, Scott Olson, Walter Henze, Rob Thompson and Brent Baker.
When I grow up, I hope I can knock down a rugged wilderness backpacking trip like these guys. It’s been a long time since I was the “baby” of any particular group, but when I hooked up with the Geezers - a group of longtime friends who take annual wilderness expeditions - I found that keeping up with the group was just about all I could muster. Even though some of them could have been my dad. Tom Black HALF-BAKED had been tryBrent Baker ing for a couple of years to get me to join the Geezers for one of their trips, but for a variety of reasons my participation hadn’t worked out. It was a close call this year as well, what with half the county seemingly in flames, but with that situation more or less under control I disappeared into the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness west of Hamilton, Montana, as an honorary Geezer. As it happened, Tom, the one who invited me, ended up not making the trip. My companions for the week included locals Andre Corso, George Baumgartner, Walter Henze, Ernie Bolz, Rob Thompson, Scott Olson, and Ernie’s lifelong friend Dean Hiser, who flew to Montana from Portland. One of the few hard and fast rules that makes this column tricky: what happens on the Geezer Hike stays on the Geezer Hike. For the most part. I can “leak” to the general public that the guys were all great to be around, both as a group and individually. I probably was in the middle of the pack as far as conditioning goes, but seeing as I had the advantage of a couple decades’ less mileage on my legs, that was hardly something to be proud of. Ah, my legs. Therein was the challenge. After a warm first day of hiking, I opted (as well as most of the guys) to go with shorts on the second day, which traversed more than nine miles and finished with a steep, 1,000 foot climb in the final mile and a half to Blodgett Lake. The trail was overgrown, and while there were a few moments of losing our way, no one broke a leg in the many deep, rocky holes the lurked in the underbrush. What also lurked there were horseflies, which found my legs far more delectable than anything the rest of the Geezers had to offer. By Wednesday,
Summertime Highland Wonders SUBMITTED BY JULIE ASHMORE OHA CONSERVATION COORDINATOR
Whether satisfying the urge to climb ever higher (even without a trail), or fly fishing at every opportunity, the Geezers proved that age was no object in the wilderness. my poor legs looked more like a bad pepperoni pizza, covered with four dozen swollen, red welts. They were impressive enough to elicit groans of sympathy from the rest of the crew. There was less sympathy (though plenty of practical support) when my phone took a dunk in some alpine snow run-off, which left me bereft of my compass, topographic maps and recreational reading material. Proving that testosterone-fueled adventure is not merely for the young, six of the eight of us scrambled another 1,000 feet up a rock face toward the ridge that ringed Blodgett Lake. As Walter and I took a breather on an SUV-sized boulder, I accidentally kicked my phone off the rock. It proceeded to slide into the one spot below the rock where a pool of water beckoned like some sort of anti-technology magnet, sucking my electronic appendage into its depths. While it was submerged for only five seconds, I had to stretch my arm to its full length
to catch the phone by the tips of my fingers, moments before it vanished forever into the depths beneath the behemoth rock. The phone rescued, but inoperable, the guys all contributed the silica gel packs out of their freeze dried meals, and by the time we made our way out of the mountains, my phone had been resurrected. (Note to self: bring paper backups into the wilderness.) Meanwhile, bereft of my tech, I learned a few things about fly fishing for cutthroat and rainbow trout (the fishing in the stream was so good, there were a few half-serious proclamations of boredom), had some time to wax philosophical about life and nature, and even to discuss the physics of waterfalls. Oh, and I caught a cutthroat with my bare hands. Really. Maybe next time there will be video to prove it. But what would be the fun in that?

Okanogan Highlands Alliance (OHA) announces another extraordinary outdoor learning opportunity: a tour highlighting the geology of the highlands, expanding on what was shared during the past three years’ Highland Wonders geology tours. On Saturday, Aug. 16, Geology of the Okanogan Highlands, Part IV will be led by a team of speakers who each bring a different emphasis. The team is headed by Dr. Karl Lillquist, a professor in the Geography Department and Co-Director of the Resource Management Graduate Program at Central Washington University. He is also an instructor for the Ellensburg Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute, and co-led last year’s OHA Geology Tour. Dr. Lillquist has degrees in Geography and Geology, and a special interest in geomorphology, a field of study that focuses on landforms and how they originated. Teaching in the Okanogan Highlands has a personal connection for Dr. Lillquist, having lived in Oroville as a child, and returning to Lost Lake each summer for family reunions. “I am especially fascinated with the glacial history of the highlands,” he says. “The landforms suggest clues about how the ice, thousands of feet thick, and flowing meltwater moved through the area -- creating the features we see today. This tour will help people read the story of the land.” Ralph and Cheryl Dawes will also help lead the event, for the fourth year in a row. Dr. Dawes is a professor at Wenatchee Valley College and Cheryl has a Bachelor’s degree in Geology. Both focus on how to interpret rocks and minerals to understand the geology of the landscape. They have played an instrumental role in the development of OHAís geology tours through generous contributions of time and energy. The 2014 geology tour will touch on three major geologic processes that have shaped the area: glaciation, terrane accretion, and volcanic activity. Participants will observe the impact of continental glaciers repeatedly advancing from the north over the region, sculpting the highlands and sprin-

kling them with sediments and erratic boulders. The glaciers smoothed the ridges and peaks, deposited flat layers of sediment on the valley bottoms, formed flat benches along the sides of the valleys, and created the system of lakes and streams that water the Highlands today. It is on this foundation that the modern flora and fauna of the highlands, including people, have established themselves and made their homes. Underneath and sometimes protruding from the landforms, a wide array of mineral types can be found, telling the story of ages past. The group will view up-close examples of mineral metamorphism and recrystallization in rock outcrops, observing the effect of heat and pressure within earthís crust, a process that replaced the original minerals in the rocks with new minerals. The event will provide insight into how the unique combination of bedrock, geologic structures, and glacial features create the wondrous landscape of the Okanogan Highlands. Participation in previous Geology tours is not required in order to attend this fourth tour. Although this is a driving tour, there may be some hiking on steep slopes and uneven terrain in order to get a closer look at certain sites. Due to the nature of the outdoor event, preregistration is required and participation is limited; priority registration will be offered for OHA members until August 6th. Details as to time and place to meet will be provided upon registration. A waiting list will be generated on a firstcome, first-serve basis, and the general public is welcome to inquire at any time. To begin or renew your OHA membership and be first in line to register for the summertime events, please visit www.okanoganhighlands.org/support, or contact OHA for more information. To sign up for this event, email julie@ okanoganhighlands.org or call 509-4762432. OHA is a non-profit organization that works to educate the public on watershed issues. The Highland Wonders educational series features the natural history of the Okanogan Highlands and surrounding areas. OHA’s Education Program, which is offered free of charge, is designed to build the capacity of the community to steward natural habitats and resources by helping increase awareness of local natural history. Donations are always welcome. Details are provided on OHAís website: www. okanoganhighlands.org/education/hw.

FHC announces new facility Grand Opening in north Omak SUBMITTED BY MEGAN BARTON FAMILY HEALTH CENTERS
OMAK - Family Health Centers (FHC) announces the opening of its new facility in North Omak, located at 1003 Koala Drive. In celebration they are having a Grand Opening celebration on Tuesday, Aug. 12th at 10 a.m., which will include a free community Health Fair in honor of National Health Center Week. The Grand Opening celebration will begin with remarks by CEO Mike Hassing and introductions of key facility staff. Several dignitaries will be present including Senator Maria Cantwell and Judge Christopher Culp, Omak Mayor Cindy GagnĂŠ and numerous others. After the opening ceremony, there will be an initial tour of the facility and a reception. The Health Fair will begin at 11 a.m. with booths fea-
turing some of FHCâ€™s preventative services such as glucose checks, vision and blood pressure screenings, information on dental, healthy lifestyle, disease prevention, pharmacy services, community outreach, WIC nutrition, and insurance enrollment. The Providence Hospital mammogram van will also be on-site to screen qualified individuals. Throughout the day, there will be family activities, games, and prize giveaways. Musical entertainment will be provided by Okanogan Sound, facility tours will continue several times an hour, and healthy snacks and refreshments will be served. At 2:00 pm the event is scheduled to conclude with grand prize drawings for a high powered blender system, and adult and youth bicycles. The event will offer something for everyone. Family Health Centersâ€™ new facility was designed by archi-
tectural firm KDF and built by Bouten Construction. With 19,793 square feet, 24 exam rooms, 4 procedure rooms and a drive through pharmacy, this facility has quadrupled FHCâ€™s space for medical services and doubled the size of the existing pharmacy, helping the FHC system expand to more than 70,000 patient visits per year. Work by local artists Ginger Reddington, Cheryl Wrangle, Jenn Tate, Dan Brown and photographer Tom Reichner can be seen in the corridors, waiting areas and exam rooms. The new facility project was financed through the Healthy Futures Fund (HFF), a collaboration of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, Morgan Stanley and the Kresge Foundation. The HFF utilized New Markets Tax Credits provided by the National Development Council.
As the only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Okanogan County, Family Health Centersâ€™ and their new facility will increase community access to high quality, affordable health care. They have over eight locations throughout the region, and are soon opening a combined medical and dental clinic in Bridgeport, and have plans for a new dental clinic in Twisp. â€œFHCâ€™s mission is to provide access to high-quality, affordable health care services regardless of race, income, or insurance status, and this investment will help to strengthen the areaâ€™s health care delivery system,â€? said CEO Hassing. â€œBy locating our new clinic next door to Confluence Health Omak Clinic and Okanogan Behavioral Healthcare, weâ€™re creating a â€˜health care campusâ€™ with a full range of services located immediately next to each other.â€?

Chris Warren, Roy Bowden, and Kathleen Christensen of Omak/Okanogan area. Forty-two years ago, in
1973, members of the Omak Presbyterian Church brought KEY â€˜73 Bibles and the first Cowboy Praise Service to the Omak Stampede. â€œStampeders for Christâ€? continued yearly with participants from Omak Free Methodist Church and Christian Businessmen Association, bringing music, cookies, ice water, coffee, and Bibles to the rodeo grounds on the grass at Triangle Park. The group also helped the sheriff â€™s department care for lost kids. Incorporating as Christians In Action in 1977, it has coordinated musicians, speakers, dramas, and kidsâ€™ activities from a variety of churches at Stampede every year since. It also maintains the KMBI 103.9 FM Translator on Omak Mountain, and â€œSonshine Crossâ€? on Shellrock Point, provides Bibles to High School graduates, and sponsors an Easter Sonrise Service.
