JUST A LITTLE OFF THE TOP

The annual Haunted Hayride was a “spooktacular” success, at least for those not in need of a trim. The popular event had over 200 riders this year winding their way through the orchard above Taber’s Taste of Summer Fruit Barn just north of Oroville. The hayride is sponsored by the Tabers RE/ MAX Lake and Country Realty. For more photos see page B3.

Recent fires emphasize need for emergency preparedness county and state had $38 million in damage and it cost the county alone just under $1 million – we should be getting 75 percent of that back from FEMA if it can be documented,” he said. Miller said at its peak on July 15 and 16 the fire grew from 7000 acres to 200,000 acres. “It was eating up one football field per second,” said Miller. The mudslides that followed took about one to one and a half hours and covered the Carlton-Chiliwist Road in mud 40 feet deep and took out the phone line. Miller said that FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) will not be covering that damage. “There is still a danger of flash flooding until the end of the year,” he said. Miller also said there were about 250 animal carcasses from cattle lost in the fire, which the state Department of Agriculture helped to bury. “There are still deer plus everything else that will have a tough winter,” he said. FEMA has $7 million in hazard mitigation grants. If the towns effected had not

Oroville Council hears from county’s Emergency Manager BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR

OROVILLE – Scott Miller, manager of Okanogan County Emergency Management, appeared before the Oroville City Council to discuss the importance of the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan, especially in light of the recent devastating Carlton Complex Fires. “We activated the county Emergency Management Plan, said Miller, adding that while Oroville was not directly involved several cities nearer the fires were called in to help. The Carlton Complex started as four fires that later combined into two, according to Miller. “It cost $100 million to suppress. The

approved the Hazard Mitigation Plan adopted then FEMA monies would not be available to help,” he said. “Oroville has already adopted the plan and would be covered in case of a disaster.” In addition to applauding retiring Oroville Police Chief Clay Warnstaff for his help with emergency management, he also said he felt Todd Hill, the next chief, will do well in that position. In addition, Miller talked about a new Emergency Notification System that will be available for cities to participate in. The system, he said, is in addition to the traditional EAS – Radio/TV system that most people are accustomed to – “The Emergency Broadcasting System.” He said, “That system is limited during a power outage and if you don’t have your radio on. It wouldn’t have helped us a lot after the Loup Loup transmission line was burned.” Miller said the county was going to invest

For the second time in 14 days, skywatchers were treated to an eclipse. The moon passed directly between the earth and sun on Thursday, Oct. 22, which was visible with a solar filter. The sunspot, center, was an added “treat” as it is the largest such solar event in nearly 25 years. The weather was a bit more cooperative than for a lunar eclipse two weeks ago.

LOCAL NEWS Methow and Tonasket top list for new construction Oroville drops from highest to third Editor’s Note: We had some old information on new construction in the Oct. 9 edition, this is the updated data for this year’s new construction assessment. G.A.D. THE GAZETTE-TRIBUNE

Clyde and Sandy Andrews, proprietors of the Camaray Motel, are opening Stateside Office Services, which will also be located in the motel offices.

Stateside Office Services has much to offer businesses THE GAZETTE-TRIBUNE

OROVILLE – Clyde and Sandy Andrews are expanding their services to businesses by offering printing, copying, faxing and internet services to the home and business office. The couple, who moved here from Vancouver, Wash. in 2010, are the general managers of the Camaray Motel and that’s where they’ll be opening their new business – Stateside Office Services, on Nov. 1. “Because we are running it at the Camaray motel, people can see us during lobby hours which are from 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., seven days a week,� said Clyde Andrews. Currently they can provide printing in full color up to 12’ x 18’ on both sides, copies and color copies, fax sending and receiving, computer with internet

access and printing capabilities, laminating, document shredding (both in-house or rent their machine), as well as some design services. “We will add services if there appears to be a need for them. For example, if several people would like us to provide vinyl lettering, then we would consider expanding into that,� Andrews said. “Or, for example, there is no one in town selling cell phone services, we might consider that.� For now their production center is a small room behind the front desk of the motel. “We may eventually need to expand into a neighboring store front,� he said. The Andrews have been doing this kind of stuff already for the chamber, community events, and neighboring businesses.

“When our current color printer quit working, we decided to go for a much more robust machine and offer our services officially,� he said. “We might be the only such business in the North County. And when it comes to things like fax sending and receiving, or emergency printing needs, we are probably the only ones in the whole county that are open 15 hours a day, seven days a week.� Although technically the couple are the managers of the Camaray Motel, they say they have virtual owner control of everything from pricing to marketing to improvement priorities. They also own and operate Stateside Self Storage. Stateside Office Services is located at 1320 Main Street in Oroville and the phone number is 509-476-3684.

OKANOGAN – A total of all the new construction in Okanogan County took place recently and the Methow Valley School District, putting it at the top of the new construction and knocking Oroville down the list for 2014, according to Scott Furman, Okanogan County Assessor. Rather than falling to second, however, Tonasket claims that spot and Oroville was in with third highest. The Okanogan County Assessor’s Office recently completed physically inspecting and valuing for property tax purposes, new construction that has occurred throughout the County in the past 12 months. The $41,727,500 in new assessed value was picked up for assessment year 2014, taxes payable 2015. This amount is seven percent less than the $45,057,200 that was valued in 2013. A total of $41,328,500 in new construction was valued in 2012. The most new construction occurred in 2007 and amounted to $80.7 million. This process involves the office’s four real estate appraisers going out and physically inspecting the improvements and determining the value of the improve-

ments based upon a number of criteria including square footage, quality of construction, quality of materials used and architectural design. Some 87 percent of this new construction can be attributed to residential construction with the remaining 13 percent commercial construction. This compares to 71 percent residential new construction and 29 percent commercial new construction in 2013. The Methow Valley School District accounted for $13,208,200 of new construction or 32 percent of the total. The Tonasket School District came in next with $6,508,600 or 16 percent of the total. The Oroville School District had $5,701,200 or 14 percent of the total. The Brewster School District had $3,656,300 or nine percent of the total. The Omak School District had $3,511,700 or eight percent of the total. The Okanogan School District total was $1,994,600 or five percent of the total. The Pateros School District had $1,028,900 or 2.5 percent of the total. Methow has led in new construction for several years, however Oroville has taken the top spots a couple times over the past decade due to several factors, including the Buckhorn Mine, a boom in vacation and resort development and expansion of Oroville Reman and Reload. However, Oroville has dropped to third and Tonasket has moved up to second, following the Methow. Regarding the change in new construction numbers in north

county over the previous years, Okanogan County Assessor Scott Furman said, “I can’t tell you the why as far as what is driving new construction in Okanogan County. It’s a mix of current residents building as well as folks new to the area building. Furman, who says the assessors office doesn’t track whether residential building is for vacation property or not, added that people are attracted to the Okanogan for a variety of reasons. “Valuation of new construction in a timely manner by the Assessor’s Office is important to all property taxpayers as well as the 64 different taxing districts within Okanogan County,� said Okanogan County Assessor Scott Furman. “The addition of these new values to the property tax roll of Okanogan County helps lessen the property tax burden on everyone with existing value while at the same time giving the taxing districts where the new construction is located a small revenue boost.� All property owners who have had new construction valued by the Okanogan County Assessor’s Office this year had a notice of value change mailed to them earlier this year. These notices of value change will affect property taxes paid in 2015. Furman, encourages anyone who has questions regarding their new construction assessment to contact the office at 509-422-7190 or stop by the at 149 3rd North, Room 202, in Okanogan and talk with them. The Assessor’s Office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on holidays.

EMERGENCY | FROM A1 in a new system where people can go to a website and sign up for a variety of information. “They can opt-in to get emergency notifications through email, text, landline, cell phone, social media, etc. Servers will then send out notifications to whoever signs up. It can handle up to 10,000 calls per minute,� he said, adding that the county will be paying out of a homeland security grant the first year. Miller said the city could participate for sending both emergency and non-emergency messages and that in 2016 the cost to the city would be $816 per year. “Gives the ability to notify your people in an emergency or nonemergency. All emergencies start local and end local,� he said.

OLD BORDER PATROL STATION City Clerk Kathy Jones said she had contacted representatives

at both the U.S. Department of Justice and the General Services Administration regarding the city’s interest in the old U.S. Border Patrol Station on Main Street. The building is now unoccupied because the agency has

moved into their new station, just south of the Port of Entry. “They both quickly replied and sent us an application to complete and both said they look forward to working with us toward that end,� Jones said.

SCHOOLS

Oroville Schools embrace eBooks SUBMITTED BY SUPT. STEVE QUICK OROVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT

OROVILLE - Over the summer the Oroville School District upgraded its library software and also purchased its first round of eBooks for its library collection. With the board’s heavy emphasis on putting technology into students’ hands, it made sense to also add a digital collection

of books for the students to our library. Several classes already use iPads to access their textbooks and curriculum taking advantage of the many advantages they have over a traditional textbook, not just in weight, but also in functionality. eBooks allow much more interaction with the user and give students much more up to date and relevant information. Library books can be checked out via the new library catalog that is found online, which is connected to our main eBook provider, OverDrive. Students and families can check these books out on their iPads, Kindles, and other devices anywhere they have access to the internet. Students can also go online and reserve hardcopy books to pick up later. The research tools available are extremely useful and readily available to students. Students are not limited to only using their school issued device. The North Central Regional Library also uses OverDrive. The District has partnered with the NCRL, which also gives our students access to their ever-growing collection of eBooks. Oroville students can access both libraries using by using their District username and password. If a student

has a device at home, but doesn’t know this information, all they need to do is check in with the librarian. The initial purchase focused on books for grades K-6, but librarians in both buildings are actively working on purchasing books for all ages. There are many advantages of eBooks including the fact that you can fit 100’s onto a single device. From a librarian standpoint, there is also never an issue of books being late either. When books are checked out on a device, it only remains on the device for a limited time before being automatically returned. There is no need for shelving and inventorying as it’s all done electronically. eBooks also have features like an instant dictionary and thesaurus that otherwise would have to be toted around. With internet access, many eBooks have links to websites where additional information can be gathered at the touch of a link. Is the District abandoning the traditional hardcopy book completely? No, but times are changing fast and eBooks are becoming more and more popular. Some folks really enjoy the look and feel of a nice book, but more and more people are also getting used to and enjoying eBooks, especially the younger generations.

Submitted photos

Accessing the Oroville School District library is as easy as going to our website at oroville.wednet. edu and clicking on the library tabs. There is also a link to the NCRL website on our main page. To use eBooks on devices, you will need to download the OverDrive app. It is our hope that students and parents will take advantage of this new resource by using it today to Read, Read, Read!

Community invited to Veterans Day assembly SUBMITTED BY TONASKET HS ASB

Dear Tonasket Community, In honor of Veterans Day, the Tonasket High School ASB will be hosting a Veteran’s Day Assembly on the morning of Monday, Nov. 10, in the Tonasket High School Commons from 9:00-10:00 a.m. This year we will have two guest speakers, our choir and band will perform, the Boarder Patrol Explorers will carry out an opening and closing ceremony, and our students will perform a flag presentation.

Before (inset) and after photos of the area where the old portable classroom was located at the southeast end of Oroville Elementary. Flower boxes, started as a Senior Project, now adorn the space and are the responsibility of the students located in adjacent classrooms. The newly beautified space makes a good place to study in good weather and the students can learn about gardening.

We would like to encourage all Veterans to please bring items to be displayed on our Veterans’ memorabilia table. Before the assembly, from 8:45 to 9:00 A.M., THS ASB and FCCLA will be providing a refreshment area for veterans and community members to sit, visit, and reflect. We will have decorated tables for our Veterans to sit at, enjoy the refreshments, and watch the assembly. We encourage our community members to attend our assembly and celebrate America’s Veterans with us.

Old eyesore at Oroville Elementary replaced with flower boxes SUBMITTED BY SUPT. STEVE QUICK OROVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT

OROVILLE - One can’t help but notice the beautiful flower boxes at the elementary school these days: A stark difference from the old portable that was quite the eyesore for years. With the help and vision of many people this project has unfolded into a wonderful area for the students. Gabreilla Capote and Stephany Cisneros, who graduated in June, headed up the efforts to complete the area for their senior project. A few staff members and community members really helped them make it a reality. We couldn’t name all the people who took care of the flowerboxes over the summer because we would miss some names, but there were the likes of Tedi Fletcher and others who helped the elementary principal all summer to keep the boxes watered and free of weeds. Many people would just walk by and help pull weeds if they saw them and the custodians often watered them

Poynter). The teachers knew that they were going to be in their current locations, so each class planted the box near to the teacher’s current room. Teachers and students are planning on collecting seeds from the boxes this fall, drying them

out, and replanting them inside around April. In May or June we will have our students plant the seedlings we have grown. Several classes allow students to complete assignments or read out in the new reading garden when the weather cooperates.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month We have all been touched in some way or know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Because of this, it is important to offer support to those in every stage of this disease as well as those who are beating the odds and now stand as survivors.

Early Detection One of the earliest signs of breast cancer can be an abnormality that shows up on a mammogram before it can be felt. The most common signs of breast cancer are a lump in the breast, abnormal thickening of the breast, or a change in the shape or color of the breast. Finding a lump or change in your breast does not necessarily mean you have breast cancer. Additional changes that may also be signs of breast cancer include: z Any new, hard lump or thickening in any part of the breast. z Change in size or shape. z Dimpling or puckering of the skin. z Swelling, redness or warmth that does not go away. z Pain in one spot that does not vary with your monthly cycle. z Pulling in of the nipple, nipple discharge that starts suddenly and appears only in one breast. z An itchy, sore or scaling area on one nipple. It is important for women to practice the elements of good breast health. It is suggested women obtain regular mammography screening starting at the age of 40. Obtain annual clinical breast exams, perform monthly breast-self exams and obtain a risk assessment from a physician. This information was acquired from the American Cancer Society, 1-800-ACS2345. Or www.cancer.org.

Awareness and knowledge are your friends when fighting breast cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

hen diagnosed with breast cancer, women are often filled with questions. What is the survival rate? Can breast cancer spread to other parts of my body? What does this mean for my family? Such questions are common, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly alright and even beneficial for women diagnosed with breast cancer to ask as many questions as possible to better understand the disease. Though each individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience with breast cancer is unique, upon diagnosis the doctor will determine which stage that cancer is in. Determining the stage of the cancer is based on: * the size of the cancer * if the cancer is invasive or noninvasive * whether or not the cancer is in the lymph nodes * if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body Upon diagnosis, the doctor will also discuss if the cancer is local, regional or distant. Local means the cancer is confined to the breast, while regional means the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, most likely those in the armpit. If the doctor says the cancer is distant, that means it has been found in other parts of the body. If the tumors involve the breast skin, the underlying chest structures, have changed the breastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shape, and enlarged the lymph nodes, the doctor will then likely determine the cancer is locally advanced or regionally advanced. Survival rates have increased dramatically over the last 30 years. Much of this is thanks to research, but increased awareness of breast cancer has also played a role in the significantly improved survival rates. Part of that awareness includes taking steps as a young woman to reduce risk for breast cancer. Steps such as adopting a healthier diet, learning about family history with breast cancer and undergoing routine checkups can greatly improve a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of beating breast cancer. Survival rates depend on a host of factors, including the stage of the cancer at diagnosis. Women who understand the stages of breast cancer and the role they play in surviving the disease might be more inclined to take steps that reduce their risk. * Stage 0: Though the best breast cancer diagnosis is no diagnosis at all, women diagnosed with stage 0 breast cancer can breathe somewhat easy. Stage 0 means the cancer is noninvasive and there is no evidence that the cancer cells or the noncancerous abnormal cells have spread beyond the part of the breast where they originated. * Stage I: A stage 1 diagnosis means the cancer is invasive, and the cancer cells are beginning to invade normal cells around the breast tissue. However, a stage 1 diagnosis means the lymph nodes have not been invaded.

A stage IIA diagnosis can mean any of the following: - no tumor has been found in the breast, but cancer cells are in the lymph nodes under the arm; or - the tumor in the breast is 2 cm or smaller and has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm; or - the tumor in the breast is between 2 to 5 cm but has not spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. A stage IIB diagnosis means the cancer is invasive and: - the tumor is between 2 to 5 cm and has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm; or - the tumor is larger than 5 cm but has not spread to the lymph nodes under the arm * Stage III: Similar to stage II, a stage III diagnosis will be divided into subcategories. But stage III breast cancer will be diagnosed as IIIA, IIIB or IIIC. In stage IIIA breast cancer: - no tumor is found, but cancer has been found in the lymph nodes under the arm; these lymph nodes will be clumped together or sticking to other structures or the cancer may have spread to lymph nodes near the breastbone; or - the cancer is any size and has to spread to the lymph nodes under the arm, which are clumped together and sticking to other structures A stage IIIB diagnosis means: - the cancer may be any size and has spread to the skin of breast and/or the chest wall; and - the cancer may have spread to the lymph nodes under the arm, where they will be clumped together or sticking to other structures; or the cancer may have spread to the lymph nodes near the breastbone. Symptoms of stage IIIB breast cancer can include reddening of a significant portion of the breast skin, swelling of the breast and a warm feeling at the touch. A stage IIIC diagnosis means: - there may be no sign of cancer in the breast - if the there is a tumor, it can be any size and may have spread to the chest wall and/or the skin of the breast; and - the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes above or below the collarbone; and - the cancer may have spread to the lymph nodes under the arm or near the breastbone. * Stage IV: A stage IV diagnosis means the cancer has spread beyond the breast and local lymph nodes to other organs of the body. This can include the skin, bones, liver, lungs, distant lymph nodes, or even the brain. A stage IV diagnosis might be a recurrence of a previous breast cancer, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also possible to get a stage IV diagnosis at first diagnosis.

THE TOWN CRIER School shootings just bring up more questions The events of last Friday, the school shooting in Marysville, just add to the confusion regarding what’s happening in our country. Why did this young boy have access to a legal firearm and what sent him over the edge? It’s just conjecture on my part, but passing a measure like I-594, closing the “Gun Show Loophole” in this state, probably wouldn’t have made a difference. That’s not to say that the polls don’t show most gun owners in the state favor the measure, it just wouldn’t have kept the gun out of the kid’s hand. The shooting struck pretty close to home for my family as my nephew lives in Marysville and like the shooter and many of his victims, is a freshman in high school. No, he didn’t go to Marysville-Pilchuck High School, although at the time the television news started covering the shooting I wasn’t sure of that. I had to call my mom and she said he went to Lakewood, which is actually in Arlington, Wash. Still the relief I felt was soon replaced by despair as the news that several of the shooter’s friends were targeted and at least one, at the time had died. The shooter also Out of took his own life. We are still learning things – some of the vicMy Mind tims were not only his friends, but were related Gary A. DeVon to the him. The crime was premeditated– he had sent a text asking them to meet him in the cafeteria. He was a popular kid and not bullied and seemed to have a lot going for him. How do we comprehend his actions? It just doesn’t make sense. Could it really be as simple as a reaction to being rejected by a girl like some are saying now? Would that really send him over the edge like that? What’s changed in America? Growing up in rural America, it wasn’t unusual for kids to come to school with rifles in gun racks mounted in their pickup trucks. They were just taking advantage of hunting opportunities before and after school. At Oroville it would have been unimaginable for one of our fellow students to go, get his rifle and threaten someone with it. Get into a fist fight maybe, but not try to really kill someone or multiple someones. While school shootings certainly didn’t begin at Columbine, they must have been pretty rare back in the 1960s and 1970s (at least I don’t remember hearing of any back then). We had the worry about nuclear war ever present in the backs of our heads, but I doubt there is a kid in high school now who doesn’t think “what if ” – what if one of his or her fellow students were to go over the edge. Reaction to bullying seems to be used as the excuse, however after these types of rampages, as they are coming to be defined, we often find out there was no bullying involved. As long as there is easy access to guns there will be the potential for some broken kid to think shooting someone is the way to take out his or her frustrations. I’m not sure all the mental health care in the world will catch all the potential Eric David Harris, Dylan Bennet Klebold or Jaylen Frybergs out there. I don’t have the answers and with each school shooting it seems to get harder to even venture a guess. While the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings of kindergarteners in Connecticut started the debate again in earnest, like all the shootings before it was starting to just fade away, only to be taken up again like it did last Friday when Fryberg shot five of his friends and then himself.

75 Years Ago: October 20-27: The Oroville Grange is planning to hold a carnival on their regular meeting night, November 2nd at the Odd Fellows Hall and the public is welcome. The program for the evening calls for all kinds of games of skill, to be found at any carnival, with plenty of stage money to play them with. On Thanksgiving eve, Wednesday, November 22, the Grange is holding their tenth annual Thanksgiving Day dance at the Liberty Hall. The Okanogan County tax levies have been approved by County Treasurer, John Thorpe. The total state school levy will be 2.20 mills; the University, 1.08; State college, .64; Bellingham, .19; Cheney, .17 and Ellensburg .12. Oroville levies for 1939 are 13.2 mills for the state, county and power district; .12 mills for schools; 14.8 for municipal levies for a total levy of 40 mills. The possibilities of lowering firefighters from airplanes on National Forests are being explored by the U.S. Forest Service. If this proves to be practical, many hours travel time can be saved and many more fires can be stopped when they are small. The Oroville High School Hornets, emerged the winner in a hard fought football game with the Goats from Pateros with a score of 7-0.

These buildings have long been a “thorn in the side” to the looks of Oroville’s Main Street. A fire hazard as much as a beauty problem, the buildings will be torn down for the lumber in them. (By Jim Cockle) The fuel bin at Zosel’s Lumber mill caught fire at 7:15 p.m. Sunday, October 18. The fire was started by sparks from the smoke stack which fell in dry shavings. The automatic sprinkler system put out the fire. (By Jim Cockle) With a wide open race for the Caribou League Trail Championship, the fourth ranked Oroville Hornets club will tackle the first ranked Chelan Goats here Friday night. The local Hornets, in league competition, have two wins and two losses compared to the Goats record of four wins and one loss.

To cut this lifeline from feeding the truth and information in our country would de a disaster. Our founding fathers had good reason to prized liberty, to safeguard the freedom of speech and press. They had tasted ruthless power and despotism which they had just overthrown. “Dan Evans, candidate for governor, has pledged his full support of the North Cross State Highway” it was announced by Charles Hulsey of Oroville, vice-president of the proposed highway. “This announcement is a tremendous boost for our efforts to have the highway completed at the earliest possible date,” Hulsey said.

25 Years Ago: October 19 -26, 1989: Back in 1985, two Tonasket ladies decided to toss their hats into the ring of small business. It was Mardi Gras (now known as Harvestfest) in Tonasket and the two, Lila Yeckel and Eva Scweikert, stationed themselves in the back of a canopied pickup truck with a hand lettered sign above them declaring “New Apple Products.” At that moment V & B Apple Products began. Interceptions by the Tonasket Tigers pave the way for an important 21-10 win for that club last Friday night. It was the Victory Bell game, but more important to the Tigers was the win that kept them in the hunt for the state playoffs. Shots rang out on Main Street here last Thursday morning, as Oroville Police Chief, Al Rise, was forced to shoot and kill an armed man who had threatened his life. The shooting took place in front of several witnesses, who confirmed that David Brian Peatroy, a 34-year-old Englishman had indeed took aim at the policeman and said that he was going to kill him. It’s been said about cemeteries, ”People are just dying to get in.” That may soon become a problem in and around Oroville. For three years, the Oroville Cemetery District No. 4 has not received any tax monies to help offset the $27,800 yearly budget needed to maintain the cemetery. A special levy will appear on this November’s ballot to approve an additional $.11 per $1,000 assessed valuation that would give the district about $11,000. It is now up to the voters. The plight of the Old Peerless Restaurant and Lounge may soon come to an end on December 1, as the building, which has been closed for debt purposes five years ago, is auctioned by the U.S. Marshall’s office. The U.S. Marshall will give the previous owner an opportunity to pay the money owed, in this case, $147,000.00. If this is not paid, then the Marshall will give a bid of an unknown amount and if any person beats that bid, the normal redemption period for reclaiming will be eliminated and on payment of the bid, the bidder will receive a warranty deed to the property. The Oroville Homecoming Royalty are pictured as being: Queen, April Noel surrounded by her Princesses, Freshman, Angela Welch; Sophomore, Stephanie Retasket; Junior, Jenifer Gee; Junior, Brandy Beanblossom; and Seniors, Kimberly Lyonois and Erin King.

OKANOGAN VALLEY LIFE Are you ready for November and Thanksgiving? October ended with Halloween and here we go into November. Are you ready for that? With November, our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving. Do we cook or do we get invited. Our thoughts shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be first of food, but somehow, that usually comes to mind with most holidays. And then I wondered if the former Lindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bakery, who had spearheaded free Thanksgiving dinner for those with-

out family, for a lot of years, would happen this year. I was told that Evaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the new owner, had a donation container so, that would indicate she will host the day again, as she did last year. Now that the burn ban has been lifted, the weeds and other junk are too wet to burn, as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had several days of sprinkles and light rain.

The Tonasket Garden Club visited Esther Bricques Winery south of Oroville. While there the club members not only learned about the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique name, but also learned about many of the facets of growing and caring for the grapes that are used to make the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many vintages. Members were given a tour of the vineyards and learned about wine making from the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners Linda and Steve Colvin.

On Oct. 13 the Tonasket Garden Club travelled to a family owned winery called Esther Bricques Winery and Vineyards at 43 Swanson Mill Road south of Oroville. The owners, Steve and Linda Colvin, have been running the winery for 15 years. There are about 12 acres of vines. We were curious as to where the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name came from. Linda, who is a teacher, knows chemistry. She explained Esther is a feminized pun of ester, is a chemical class

Long-awaited win Soccer team primed for playoffs BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - There have been other landmark wins in the Tonasket girls soccer program’s history, but probably none more significant. After years of coming close, the Tigers knocked off Central Washington League-leading Okanogan 2-1 on Thursday, Oct. 23, leaving open the possibility of sharing the league title (if Liberty Bell beat Okanogan on Tuesday). It also set the stage for what the TIgers hope will be a long postseason run. “We finally got them,” said Tonasket coach Darren Collins, whose teams had never beaten the Bulldogs in his six years of coaching. “Holy cow. We finally played two complete halves of soccer.” Some of the frustrating losses of the past few years include a 4-2 defeat earlier this season in which the Tigers led 2-0; losses of 2-1 and 1-0 last year; and a 1-0 loss in the opening round of district tournament play in 2012. Jaden Vugteveen’s 30-yard rocket from near the sideline slipped inside the upper corner of the far post to provide the game-winning goal with about 15 minutes to play. In a physical, playoff-caliber contest, the Tigers put together the kind of game Collins has been waiting for most of the year. Heading into the game he shuffled his lineup, particularly up front, where he moved Vugteveen to the outside and Ashlynn Willis to the middle. And that paid off for the Tigers in a big way. “We really wanted to keep the offensive pressure on,” Collins said. “In the first half (of the teams’ first meeting) when we had the offensive pressure on them we were able to keep possession of the ball more too and keep them running backwards. That was the goal. “I hoped by moving Jaden outside it would add to the pressure from out there. And then they started doubleteaming her, and that really freed up Ashlynn and Morgyne (Hjaltason) in the middle.” Okanogan held the early edge in both possession and physicality, but after freshman goalkeeper Madison Gariano made a tough save about 10 minutes in, play evened out. Neither team managed many quality scoring opportunities through most of the first half. Ashlynn Willis nearly broke the ice with a high, hard shot that Bulldog keeper Cameron Moses nudged harmlessly over the crossbar. But minutes later, Willis’s no-look back pass to twin sister Kayla set up a low, hard shot that Moses deflected. Rose Walts, crashing the goal, slid between the diving Moses and a Bulldog defender to punch the rebound in and give the Tigers a 1-0 lead. “Rose really found her step at the Oroville game,” Collins said. “She just

Tonasket beat Okanogan for the first time in memory, 2-1. came alive. She was making runs perfectly, holding the ball and taking the shot at the right time, good firm shots right to the corner. She found her stride and carried it over. She was bodying up their defenders hard. It’s great to see.” Okanogan’s (14-3, 12-1 CWL) Jill Townsend missed just wide on a shot off a corner kick as the half expired. “We really wanted to avoid those dang corner kicks,” Collins said. Collins was right to be concerned; the Bulldogs scored in a post-corner kick scramble in the 64th minute as Keanna Egbert poked the ball in during a goal front scrum. But the deadlock lasted only about a minute as Vugteveen set up a few yards outside the goal box and lofted a high shot into the far corner of the goal that was all but impossible for Moses to reach. “You couldn’t have asked for a better shot,” Collins said. From then it was hang on time as the Bulldogs pressed for the equalizer and the Tigers compressed their defense into an ever smaller area. Gariano was forced into making a couple of tough saves, including a leaping grab of an Okanogan corner kick with Townsend bearing down on her, to secure the win. “Okanogan is definitely bigger,” Collins said. “As a team they’re probably faster than we are too. But I would like to think the twins have better footwork than anyone in the league. “I feel good about our chances against anyone if we play two halves the way we played today.” The Tigers (13-2, 11-2 CWL) open district tournament play with a home contest on Saturday, Nov. 1, at 1:00 p.m, likely against St. George’s from the Spokane area.

TONASKET 8, OROVILLE 1 OROVILLE - Tonasket topped its

rivals on Oroville’s senior day behind hat tricks from Ashlynn Willis and Rose Walts. Megan Bolich and Kayla Willis added single goals. Kambe Ripley scored for the Hornets, while Xochil Rangel kept busy with 23 saves. “It’s always a tough game against Tonasket, and I felt we were a lot better prepared vs. the first time the girls met up,” said Oroville coach Tony Kindred. The Hornets, still playing without substitutes, played the last few minutes down ap player after Ripley went down with an injury. “She had an amazing game all over the field,” Kindred said. “The girls worked really hard to shut down the Willis twins, who are great athletes. But this time around Rose Walts came on strong.” The Hornets closed out their season Tuesday at Bridgeport. “The girls continue to work hard and look forward to competition as they understand it’s bringing them closer to their goals,” Kindred said.

LIBERTY BELL 5, OROVILLE 0 WINTHROP - The Hornets fell at Liberty Bell on Thursday, Oct. 23, despite narrowing the margin from a seven goal loss earlier in the year. “The girls have played better defense in the second half of the season,” Kindred said. “They’re still playing hard.” Xochil Rangel finished with 13 saves and Tori Kindred led the Hornets with three shots on goal. “Overall the girls have shown great improvement in ball movement and communication on the field,” Kindred said. “Oroville continues to improve on defense and the girls are consistently spending more time on the opponents side of the field sending more shots on goal.”

Tonasket girls 1st, boys 2nd at CWL finals BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

WINTHROP - The Tonasket cross country teams’ top two runners missed Saturday’s Central Washington League finals meet. Of course, no one was about to blame Hunter Swanson and Johnna Terris for traveling with the rest of their FFA state championship team to the national convention in Kentucky. They also didn’t miss a beat without them. The Tigers were declared the winners of a small girls competition in which no one fielded a full team, while the boys were runner up to Liberty Bell. The Tonasket girls actually were missing half their team as Terris was out of town, while Haley Larson was injured and Baillie Hirst was ill. But Camille Wilson, Katie Henneman and Jenna Valentine made that a moot point as they took off together from the outset. Wilson led from start to finish, while only Kayla St. Pierre of Lake Roosevelt cracked the top three at any time during the race. Wilson finished the 5k course in 22:33.3, followed by Henneman (22:46.1) and Valentine (23:02.5). Tonasket coach Bob Thornton said he felt it helped Wilson to be forced to run her own race from the front, instead of keying off of teammate Terris. “We had some athletes step up and run their best races of the year,” he added. Liberty Bell dominated the boys race, with five of the top nine finishers and finished with 27 points. Tonasket (70) edged Lake Roosevelt (78) for second. Manson (99), Riverside Christian (107) and Bridgeport (112) rounded out the team scoring. Adrian McCarthy finished 10th in 19:03.76 to lead the Tigers. Bryden Hires (14th, 19:33), Abe Podkranic (16th, 20:05), Justin McDonald (19th, 20)21), Smith Condon (20th, 20:30), Samuel Strandberg (22nd, 20:37), Rade Pilkinton (30th, 21:27) and Adam Halvorsen (38th, 22:44) also ran for Tonasket. “Adrian, Bryden and Abe ran great races,” Thornton said. Bridgeport’s Oren Cox won the race in 17:06.4. He and Ben Klemmeck of Liberty Bell were running neck-and-neck head-

Oroville did not compete in the race due to a transportation issue. The teams will travel to Walla Walla Point State Park in Wenatchee on Saturday, Nov. 1, for the District 5/6 Regional race. The top three boys teams (and 15 individuals) and top one girls team (5 individuals) advance to the following week’s state finals in Pasco.

Okanogan’s big plays topple Tigers Loss sends Tonasket to playoffs with league’s third seed BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - It’s no secret that stopping Okanogan’s big plays on offense is the key to beating the Bulldogs. Knowing that and stopping it are two entirely different matters. Tonasket put together its best overall effort of the season Friday, Oct. 24, but couldn’t overcome Okanogan’s strong suit in a 35-20 loss. With just one non-league game remaining, the Tigers are assured of the Central Washington League North Division’s No. 3 seed and will travel to the South Division’s No. 2 next week in a winner-to-state, loser-out league crossover. That likely means a rematch with Warden, barring any upsets this week. “Our kids are disappointed,” said Tonasket coach Jay Hawkins. “But when we look back on this game, we got to the fourth quarter and we had a shot. Their big plays really get you.” Only one of the Bulldogs’ scoring plays came from less than 45 yards out. The tally include rushing touchdowns of 55 yards (Tyler Morris), 45 yards (Greyson Fields), 46 yards (pass to Morris from Ben Cate) and 80 yards (Riley Prescott kickoff return). “That was our concern,” Hawkins said. “I’ve watched them play so much on tape. They ‘big play’ the heck out of you. I thought we responded well. Early in the game when they got up, it looked like it could be a difficult night.” In other respects, the Tigers played the game they wanted. Tonasket had several long, time-consuming drives, and possessed the ball for all but two plays of the third quarter. Part of that was due to Prescott’s kick return, which came after Isaiah YaussyAlbright’s 24-yard run cut Okanogan’s halftime lead to 21-13. But with Albright having a huge game - including a 96-yard run in the second quarter - the Tigers were never out of it. “We had some decent drives,” Hawkins said. “We had to attack them differently than our usual base stuff. But we were successful with our little inside cutback plays. Isaiah really, really played well on both sides of the ball.” Okanogan played keep-away through most of the first quarter, taking a 14-0 lead after starting the game with a Tigerlike 12-play, 53-yard drive capped by an 8-yard Jalen Moses run. Tonasket nearly found itself in an impossible situation after committing a rare turnover inside its own 30-yard line. Moses had a 28-yard screen pass for a touchdown erased by a penalty, and the Tigers stopped Morris just shy of a first down on the 4-yard line. Albright broke loose up the middle for his momentum-shifting run, shucking off a Bulldog defender as he neared the end zone. Trailing 21-7 at the half, the Tigers took the third quarter kickoff and move 64 yards on seven plays to cut the Okanogan lead to eight. But Prescott took the kickoff, waited patiently for a hole to open, then scooted down the sideline 80 yards to seize the momentum back for Okanogan. “It was the perfect way to start the third quarter,” Hawkins said. “But that

They’ve got some real speed out there, but that was just some real patience, and when it was set up he just accelerated right through there.” Needing to score quickly, the Tigers were forced to pass, which hasn’t been their strength all season. But Colton Leep completed 6-of-8 passes for 61 yards in the second half as Brock Henneman had a pair of first down grabs and Elias Abrego making a leaping fourth down, 6-yard touchdown catch in the corner of the end zone for the Tigers’ final score of the night. “My receivers really made some catches tonight,” Hawkins said. “Elias’ catch was really pretty. With what we were able to do in our passing game, gives us some extra confidence that we can hit that stuff.” Albright finished with 185 yards on 22 carries to lead the Tigers. A key to the game for Okanogan was the Bulldogs’ ability to keep the Tigers’ Jorge Juarez from getting the ball anywhere with room to run, holding him to 23 yards on 13 carries. “Jorge never found any space tonight,” Hawkins said. “He’s a great runner in space but Okanogan didn’t allow much space.” Morris led Okanogan (7-1, 5-0 CWL North) with 166 yards on 20 carries. Okanogan takes on Brewster (also 5-0 in league) with the league title on the line this Friday. Brewster handed Okanogan its only loss of the season in a non-league contest, 30-21. The Tigers (5-3, 4-2) are done with league play and host Omak in their final regular-season game, Thursday, Oct. 30.

TONASKET Neither Tonasket nor Oroville have won a lot of volleyball games this year, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell that to their fans. The Hornets swept the Tigers 25-22, 25-23, 25-12 on Thursday, Oct. 23, to even their season series before a crowd as loud and raucous as any basketball crowd has been in recent years. The Tigers led by as many as 10 points in the first set before the Hornets roared back to take the lead and set the tone for the rest of the evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started out very slow, and I was worried,â&#x20AC;? said Oroville coach Nicole Hugus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we got our momentum going and came from behind to win.â&#x20AC;? The Hornets pulled out a closely fought second set, but dominated the third set from start to finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the second set we were looking better,â&#x20AC;? Hugus said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our third set our energy was up and we played great together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We struggled with our serving, but so did Tonasket.â&#x20AC;? The Hornets improved to 2-11 on the season (all in CWL North play), while the Tigers fell to 2-15 (2-11 CWL North). Both teams closed their season out on Tuesday, Oct. 28.

OUTDOORS Phantom of the North: the elusive Great Gray Owl A Highland Wonders Event SUBMITTED BY JULIE ASHMORE OHA CONSERVATION COORDINATOR

TONASKET - Not only are Great Gray Owls the largest owl in North America with the largest wingspan, their stature and countenance spark a sense of wonder. With alternate names such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great Grey Ghost,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phantom of the North,â&#x20AC;? they inspire awe and pique our curiosity. On Friday, Nov. 7, Highland Wonders will provide a view into how these amazing owls survive in the Okanogan Highlands. From unique adaptations for locating prey, to behaviors for defending their nests, to strategies for successful breeding, these masters of silent flight are sure to capture your interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These owls are elusive but once you see your first, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the experience,â&#x20AC;? says speaker Matt Marsh, Wildlife Biologist with the Tonasket Ranger District. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to share my knowledge and experiences with others who are curious about this incredible owl that hunts and breeds in our forests and grasslands, and also to learn from residents who live with them on their property.â&#x20AC;? Matt Marsh is responsible for managing the National Forest lands in the Okanogan Highlands for a variety of species, which includes the Great Gray Owl. Every year the Forest Service surveys for Great Gray Owls around restoration projects to see where they are nesting and foraging. Managing the owlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very specific habitat is important because the Okanogan Highlands has one of the largest populations in Washington State. The Highlands area provides the unique habitat of forest cover, intermixed with open meadows that Great Gray Owls call home. Matt has worked as a wildlife biologist for eight years, after working as a forester and firefighter in the area. Growing up in the Okanogan Valley, Matt has firsthand knowledge of where to find these charismatic owls and has spent many nights and early mornings out searching the forests for their presence. The event takes place at the Community Cultural Center (CCC) of Tonasket, beginning at 6:30 pm, with a dinner benefiting the CCC at 5:15 pm. The theme for the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food will be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Good Bounty.â&#x20AC;? Jean Pfeifer will prepare a bean and pumpkin soup recipe that was very popular last fall. Along with the soup will be bread, an apple/walnut salad with a cranberry vinegar dressing, and desserts in keeping with the theme. The dinner will be $7.50 for CCC members and $8.50 for non-members; there is no charge for the presentation. 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. OHAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Education Program, which is

The Hughes family made special note of Forrest and Joyce Boyer who were in on the start up of the Discount Fireworks company. They were lauded for their support during those early days. Forrest Boyer, above, gets the royal treatment, as well as a “long hair” hat to model. In addition to all the great food, drink and entertainment for adults and kids, there were also door prizes, a drawing for a rifle, a guess the amount of cash contest, and of course, a spectacular fireworks display. Photos by Gary DeVon

Making sparks fly While Discount Fireworks, owned by Jack and Mary Hughes of Oroville, might not manufacture the fireworks they sell all over the state, the party they threw for the many people and organizations that sell them certainly generated some fireworks on Oct. 18 at the J&M Warehouse. Above, the Hughes hold a check for $12,504.80 to the Independence Fund, a charity that provides motorized chairs for veterans that are capable of going off-road. The money was raised through sales of a special $49 fountain at all the Discount Fireworks stands this year. “We wanted to buy two, but we sold enough to buy one chair this year. Our goal is to sell enough for two next year,” said Jack Hughes.

OBITUARIES

SHIRLEY MAE THOMPSON

Shirley Mae (Jones) Thompson, loving Mom and Grandma, after a long struggle with illness following a broken back, went home to the Lord on October 18, 2014, peacefully at her home on Elmway, where she received loving care from Rick and his wife Linda for her last few years. Shirley was born in the back of a car on Salmon Creek June 3, 1929, to Evan and Ruth Jones. Shirley grew up on her Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranch on Pine Creek, just east of Fish Lake. She worked the ranch during WWII when the boys were gone fighting. During that time she was teased by an older ranch hand, that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strong enough to do the work. She told

him she could take him out if she wanted. He laughed and told her he would buy her a milkshake if she could knock him down. She cold cocked him. She never got the milkshake, but she also never got teased about doing the work again! Along the way she met this fine young fellow from Okanogan, Raymond Thompson at the Loup Loup CafĂŠ in Okanogan where she was working as a waitress. They went to dances at the old Grange Hall on Pine Creek and had a fun time building memories there. Shirley and Ray were married on June 11, 1948, and began raising a family shortly thereafter. Richard (Rick), Linda, Shari, and Kenneth followed over the next few years. While Ray went to work at the Okanogan Dairy, Shirley helped, working

at J.C. Penney for many years, retiring in 1991. During those years they lived most of the time on Elmway, where they not only raised their four kids, but helped raise five foster children as well. Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, Evan and Ruth Jone, her brothers Tom, Lewis, and Jack, and sister Marj (Bevier), her loving husband Ray and her son Kenny. Surviving are her brothers Charles (Peewee) and Billy, her sisters Frankie (Fowler) and Margaret (Johnson), her son Rick, daughters Linda and Shari, 11 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. Services will be held at the Okanogan Baptist Church on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM. Memories are invited, and a potluck in the Church will follow.
