Commissioners, not EMS Board, decides on inter-local agreements

RED CARPET MAGIC

City still looking at contracting with private ambulance service BY GARY DE VON MANAGING EDITOR

OROVILLE – The Oroville EMS has been struggling about what to do regarding a lack of trained personnel to operate the ambulance and has been considering going to a private company for service. However, that decision can’t be made by the city alone as it shares services with the Rural EMS and both entities collect tax dollars through levies to fund ambulance services inside and outside of town. While Mayor Chuck Spieth has expressed an interest in finding out about alternatives to a mostly volunteer crew, no decision has been made on whether that is the way the city will be heading. “We also found out that our local Rural EMS Commissioners can not make the decision on whether to change on their own,” said Spieth when asked about the situation this week. “They are an appointed board by the County Commissioners and are not elected to their positions. The final decision regarding rural EMS remains with the County Commissioners.” At the city council’s Tuesday, May 5 meeting, Chris Allen, who has tried unsuccessfully to be made a part of the Oroville Ambulance Crew, asked the council about the status of the ambulance service. Mayor Spieth said the city was working on an interlocal agreement between the city and the County Commissioners. He added that the city has discussed requesting proposals for private service following the completion of such an agreement. Janet Allen, who is a volunteer for the ambulance service also asked the city to look into the ambulance hall roof, which she says is leaking.

Princes Heritage Park

The council had a short discussion about potential uses of Princes Heritage Park. It was decided that a questionnaire would be included in the May water bills to try and gain public input. The questionnaire may be included on the city’s website as well. An online poll in the Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune has been running heavily in favor of a multi-use park without creating another soccer field. That choice has 76 percent of the votes, while the option of half soc-

cer field and half multi-use has only 17 percent of the votes. Other Business

The council heard from Sonja Mylebust and Vicki Eberhart regarding a proposed Wine and Wool event to he held on Friday, May 29 at the Pastime Bar and Grill. The two are representatives of the North American Wool Cooperative and requested a letter of support to the state Liquor Board. The council approved the request and will support the event when asked by the Liquor Board. The council also got a request from Suzanne and Julius Liptak requesting the city apply for permits to clear the channel area between the pond at Deep Bay and Lake Osoyoos. Mayor Spieth stated that Chris Branch, the director of Community Development would respond to the two. He also said the city will not be applying for the permits. Arnie Marchand gave an update on the Oroville Museum. He said the museum was open and the displays created by five different schools are complete.

out water and band-aids, with one faire attendee requesting a transport offsite to North Valley Hospital. The Barter Faire was first created in 1974 as an annual event to help community members connect and have the opportunity to barter surplus harvest and products for items needed to get through the winter. The event has grown over the years, and now a large portion of gate fees go to grants and scholarships in the community. Over $300,000 has been donated in the last seven years. Along with other grants, five $1,000 educational scholarships are given yearly, with three of them going to high school graduates and two to continuing education students.

BLUES | FROM A1 STEVE BAILEY AND THE BLUE FLAMES Steve Bailey and the Blue Flames have been a Seattle fixture since the 1980s. They are known for their intensity, great songwriting, and world class musicianship. From Memphis soul to rollicking New Orleans gumbo, Bailey keeps crowds dancing and is a triple-threat performer on vocals, guitar, and harp. They entertain at a high level with their positive, danceable music. www.stevebaileyandtheblueflames.com THE CD WOODBURY BAND Since their earliest gigs together, the CD Woodbury Band has been described as the Northwest’s best kept secret by fans and fellow musicians. With the 2013 release of their studio debut recording, “Monday Night!” the word is out! The CD Woodbury Band has gone on to international critical acclaim, radio, and internet airplay. Last year, Beale Street merchants crowned The CD Woodbury Band “Kings of Beale Street” at the Jerry Lee Lewis’ Cafe and Honky-Tonk. That same year, their CD, “Monday Night!” was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge Best Self-Produced CD competition. www.cdwoodbury.

JESSE WESTON BAND Not only was the Jesse Weston Band the group chosen to open the 2014 Inland Empire Awards ceremony, Inland Empire Blues Society members voted the band as “Best New Blues Band.” About a year and a half ago Jesse Weston burst onto the Spokane music scene, and it was apparent from the start that there was a “new piano man in town.” Jesse was not just another musician. He immediately stood out with his energetic vocals and rhythmic playing. www.jesseweston.com VOO DOO CHURCH OF BLUES Gary Yeoman’s lowdown dirty blues band with a little bit of Texas bar rock thrown in for added flavor. You will find the band every Sunday night at Daley’s in the Spokane Valley hosting a weekly blues jam. Gary’s on guitar and vocals, Ryan Dunn and Dennis Higgins also on guitar, Scott Ratterman bass guitar and Mark Stephens on drums. They are a Spokane favorite! ROYCE-GOVEDARE HIGH ROLLERS The High Rollers are known

for their Rockin’ Blues, as they lay down a deep danceable groove topped with flashy licks from their two guitar players. Anita Royce belts it out vocally in her rockin’ blues style with some jump swing thrown into the mix. Joined by the rest of the High Rollers, they take turns singing. Instrumentally the High Rollers include Anita Royce on guitar, Forest Govedare on guitar & harmonica, Art Donnelly on Bass, and Doug McQuain on drums. Well deserved, The High Rollers

won the Inland Empire Blues Society Best New Band Award for 2013. Many motorcyclists who attend the festival spend some of their time here riding the back roads of the Okanogan Highlands east of Oroville and along the lakes and rivers that border Oroville to the west. A Sunday poker run for riders will again take place, stopping at several locations in the region. There is a local Shriner Chapter 50/50 charity raffle held during the day of the event at Deep

Bay Park. The charitable donation for this year’s festival will again be earmarked to help local low income families from the Okanogan area with transportation needs to Spokane’s Shriners’ Hospital for Children. This year the Columbia River Harley Owner’s Group plans to donate the money they raise from the ride, as well as an earlier dinner-auction, to the ChelanDouglas County CASA. CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates is a program for chil-

dren. The Rally at the Border Blues Fest is open to the general public. Advance tickets are on sale for $20 online. At the door, admission is $25. Poker Run is $15 at the event.

THE TOWN CRIER

Come support the Rally at the Border Blues Fest

It’s hard to believe the Run for the Border Motorcycle charity ride is in it’s thirteenth year. This shows there is a lot of support from the Columbia River Harley Owners Group (HOG). The ride, which takes place each Armed Services Day, in this case next Saturday, attracts as many as 300 riders travelling the 150 or so miles from Wenatchee to Oroville. The question that came out of this windfall of riders is what to do with them when they hit town. How can we keep them here -- spending time, as well as money, and getting to know what Oroville has to offer? We needed to try and stop them from just turning around and heading back south after a few welcoming speeches and a stop at one of the town’s establishments to have something to eat and drink. An enterprising group of people struck upon the idea of having a blues festival and after a lot of planning, a lot of meetings and a lot of work the first Rally at the Border Blues Fest took place last year. It was a success despite Mother Nature and the Department of Transportation conspiring against it in the way of rain and highOut of construction. My Mind way While I wasn’t able to kick in as much help Gary A. DeVon as last year, the hard work continues by the diehard Blues and Bike fans we have in town and nearby. If the weather holds, and it looks like it might, we should have an even bigger and better festival this year. All those who are working tirelessly to pull off another festival need a word of appreciation. They know, just like those volunteers who helped to make it a great May Festival last weekend, that there’s a lot that needs to be done and it won’t get done by itself. What we need is local support from people who live here to go out and enjoy six of the best blues bands the Pacific Northwest offers. I guarantee you won’t get to many concerts for just $20 (presale) or $25 at the gate. Have you priced seeing a concert at the Gorge lately -- they’re a lot of money for what you get? Come listen to some blues, enjoy Deep Bay Park on our wonderful Osoyoos Lake and maybe make friends with the riders. I can think of worse ways to spend the afternoon and evening. And kids it’s open to all ages this year. Support your local blues festival and help keep this great resource, as many as 300 motorcycle riders, in town for more than a few hours.

THE OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF OROVILLE & TONASKET

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR How can this be right? Dear Gary, You won’t believe this one! A lady I know in Oroville received a call regarding her electric bill. She had paid the current one, but they found a 32-year-old bill in her previous married name. She has no recollection of owing this bill and suspects it was incurred under fraudulous circumstances. After discussing it on the phone, the lady thought it was resolved. Wrong. On the door the following day there was a threatening letter to the effect that because she is current on her account, is still using PUD power, and “owes” a balance outstanding “District policy stipulates that when a customer because delinquent in the payment of a bill for electrical service and service had been discontinued,” the District shall have the right to refuse service or disconnect new service to such customer until payment of the prior delinquent account has been made through such customer’s present service is in another party’s name or is being paid for by another party.” Until payment in full of the outstanding balance is paid – by May 15, 2015 the District will be disconnecting service no later than May 18, 2015. As far as the lady can recall, she didn’t live in Oroville in 1982. Sha has no proof that the bill was hers. What about our seven-year statute of limitations? She is in poor health, which the stress from this isn’t helping. She has been living in her current location for 15 years using PUD power with no problem about this

ITEMS FROM THE PAST COMPILED BY CLAYTON EMRY FORMER G-T PUBLISHER

The Oroville Gazette

75 years Ago May 3-10, 1940: The sixth Annual May Day celebration of the Oroville Schools will be held today, Friday, May 3, including a colorful May Day Parade through the streets of Oroville, athletic contests, a baseball game on the grade school grounds in the afternoon and a vaudeville and dance at the grade school auditorium in the evening. The parade consists of the various floats carrying Queen Marjorie Goeke and her five princesses; Helen, Girls Club; Lila, senior class; Dorothy, junior class; Marjorie, sophomore class; Sylvia, freshman class and many other floats from various organizations. The apple blossoms in the Okanogan Valley are now in the critical stage to be damaged by low temperatures, which are expected to reach 28 degrees, for at least 30 minutes or more during the night. This will affect all soft fruits except apricots which will withstand 31 degrees. Twenty members of the Oroville Business Club held their regular meeting at the Molson Grange Hall with 75 or 80 members of the Molson and Knob Hill area, to discuss road matters. It was announced by the County Commissioners, that the contract for the completion of the wooden bridge across the Okanogan River, southeast of the town, had been signed that day. The construction was bid in at $4,111 which was lower than the county estimate of $4,502. The new electric timing device recently purchased by the Town of Oroville from the Fixit Shop will automatically sound the curfew at nine o’clock each night. It was installed and put into operation for the first time this week. Mayor C. C. Hinton, appointed Dale S. Rice to the Town Council, to replace George Bundy who had resigned. Among the items discussed at the meeting was the decision to call for bids for the construction of a new city hall and jail,

issue. She has been making her own payments in her own name. How can this be right? Margo Thompson Chesaw

Piece of advice for MCs Dear Editor, I spent many years announcing various events and being a master of ceremonies and I would like to pass on some advice to people who volunteer their time to help with local events. Given the opportunity to give introductions or thank certain people, please take the time to learn how to pronounce their names. It can be distracting and really... how fun can it be to hear your name wrecked while being introduced. We have a diverse community and Gutierrez should be said as correctly as Johnson. Chris Haddad Oroville

It’s not all about organic Dear Editor, A growing number of people equate sustainable farming with organic farming. That’s a mistake. At the Center for Rural Affairs we look beyond labels and focus on core values - stewardship, community, and ownership. We ask if a farming system protects the land, water, and how it impacts community, and if it encourages widespread ownership. We champion organic family farming.

which are both badly needed. The bids will be announced in this issue of the Gazette. Mayor Hinton also said there had been many complaints of the streets being used as raceways in the lower part of town and that serious action would be taken if continued. Also, several complaints have been made about picketing of cows along the street with rope long enough to allow them to get out on the street.

Many organic farmers are innovators in practices that protect the environment. Premium prices for organic products have kept countless farms profitable. We’ve also harshly criticized corporate organic - farms that meet the letter of the organic labeling law, but otherwise look like industrial operations. Similarly, painting all conventional producers with one brush overlooks critical differences. Among conventional, family-size farmers are many ardent conservationists who maintain grass waterways, buffer strips, terraces, and shelterbelts that reduce erosion, limit runoff, and provide habitat. Innovative farmers are employing cover crops and no-till to enhance soil health. This practice represents a convergence of the best from organic and non-organic practices. Other conventional farmers who do use chemicals are also implementing innovative management strategies to reduce cost, weather drought, and build soil health. Farmers adopting these practices are using careful management in the field as an alternative to expansion. This means more farmers on the land, controlling their destiny and rising to meet the most pressing stewardship challenges of our time. In an era where climate change is the most critical challenge facing farming, farmers who embrace these values may hold the key to achieving widespread change across the landscape.

25 Years Ago: May 3-10, 1990: The Council here in Tonasket heard a report, at the April 24 meeting, that the final plans for the proposed improvements on the city’s municipal pool are awaiting I.A.C. (Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreational) approval. As soon as the plans are approved by that state agency, the town can begin work on the refurbishing of the pool and the bathhouse located in History Park. Oroville May Festival is fast approaching, says Chairperson, Marilyn Wilder. Make plans to be downtown early on Friday night, bring your family and eat out. There will be plenty to eat from hot dogs and apple pie to espresso coffee and popcorn balls, all while watching the apple bin races. People like Fanny and Wesley Rogers, Grand Marshall’s for this year’s May Day Parade, are why small towns have reputations for being friendly places. The Rogers are warm and funny, generous to the community and completely “aw shucks” about being nice people. A public meeting will be held on Thursday, May 10, 1990, at 7:30 p.m. in the Old Oroville Depot. At this meeting a discussion will be held, giving an opportunity for citizens to learn more of the Town of Chesaw and to provide comments, questions or concerns about the explorations and drilling operations on Buckhorn Mountain. Kathy Swedberg is the Head Nurse of the day shift at North Valley Hospital. With the hospital for five years, she is working with Nurses Aid, Lila Certain, taking a patients temperature with an electronic thermometer. History will be made again tonight as the 1990 Oroville May Day Festival Coronation takes place at Coulton Auditorium. Effie Coulton’s spirit will be hovering in the wings as this year’ royalty are crowned. Queen Corey Young and her Princesses, Niki Rounds and Jennifer Gee are honored. Also being honored this year, are the Oroville May Festival Senior Royalty, Queen Terrissaee Kuipers and Princess’s Muriel Turner and Ada Curtis.

OKANOGAN VALLEY LIFE

May Fest good time to catch up with friends Oh! my goodness! Where do I begin? Such a busy weekend with so many wonderful people. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and the wind didn’t blow and I even got a sunburn. Another May Day celebration is behind us. The effort and hard work that goes into making it all come together has come to a close The coronation which was held Friday night was very well done with Doreen (Ripley) Cleman, a former May Day queen, acting as emcee and a nice attendance was on hand to witness the changing of the crown from the 2014 queen to the present one. I agree with Gary that it is difficult to change to “May Festival” from “May Day” as it has been the latter for so many years. I believe in the 72 years I’ve lived in Oroville I have only missed one parade, and many changes have been made. Always something eye catching and different. The old Ford Model T fire truck, driver and attendants, probably has the

most fun with the only thing missing, is the late Eddie King. After the parade it’s on to the Maypole, where the little girls show their skills of winding and unwinding the ribbons, and their many hours of practice are put to work and they perfectly did the job making their leader, Autumn (Thorndike) Martin very proud. She has been doing this task for 21 years. Then to the barbecue where the Chamber of Commerce has a spread of food for the many who patiently stand in line, visiting with some folks they know and some they are meeting for the first time, or maybe with someone they knew years ago and didn’t recognize at first, which can sometimes be embarrassing, as you can’t remember their name, and so it goes. It was like old home week for us as many of the Class of 1965, who were gathered for their 50th class reunion, which our daughter Vicki was a member of. Several of the girls used to spend time at our house for fun and games and especially swimming, as we lived on the lake.

OROVILLE SENIOR NEWS

SUBMITTED BY JAMES GUTSCHMIDT

Oroville just had one of the best parades I’ve ever seen last Saturday. We Senior Citizens had two entries: Senior Citizen Royalty, (not to be confused with the Senior Royalty, which represents the high school) and also Ryan Frazier riding our mini motorcycle. The raffle for the motorcycle went well, and we were privileged to meet many of the most generous citizens of Oroville, which made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. Becky, of Hometown fame, graciously allowed us to use her

Oroville, to live in Kennewick, Wash. to be near family. His brother Gene passed jut last month. Sincere condolences go out to all the surviving family and friends of the above mentioned. Then, we have good news of Beverly Curtis. She is home and able to be back at the Senior citizens for lunch, where she was sincerely missed for quite a spell. And once more Steve Retasket was flown to the hospital, as he has flare-ups, periodically, having to do with kidneypancreas transplants he had, a lot of years ago, and with the loving care of Ada and family, he has fooled the doctors in living longer than most do after transplants. And our special “Renee” and I’m sorry I don’t have his last name, but he is our busboy at the senior center, went in to have a stint put in and have multiple bypass surgery. And then, last but not least, our cowboy, Ken Ripley, had a mishap with his horse, while giving her new shoes, and he ended up in the hospital, in Spokane, having repair work on a dislocated hip. So, he missed riding in the parade. Next year maybe? I have battled the computer for as long as my temperament will allow, so if I forgot something it will appear next week. ‘Til Next week.

Two years ago local Army veteran Joshua Evans said after three tours in Iraq, “We still have a long road ahead of us in crushing this network of terrorists whose entire goal is destroying the American way of life. But it is a road that the men and women of the United States Armed Forces are prepared to walk. We have a completely volunteer force who know the tribulations in front of us, and are prepared to meet them head on.” The fight Evans refers to has now come home. We are now incurring attacks in the States from ISIL/ISIS contacts as well as other terrorist groups.

In recognition of that blank check, the NCW Blue Star Mothers have created the “Hero Walk” consisting of used military boots adorned with a U.S. flag and photo of a local warrior laced to it.

Let’s face it, living with hearing loss can be frustrating, even dangerous. Hearing aids can allow you to function better in all areas of your life:

Your Safety

Your Family

Your grandson’s silly secrets. Your wife’s soft “I love yous.” These are sounds you definitely don’t want to miss.

Your Work

A car horn. An ambulance siren. The fire alarm. Hearing loss can cause you to miss important signals that alert you to danger.

Your Happiness

If you’re missing important information on phone calls or in meetings, you may not be working at the level you want to be.

OBITUARIES

Edward Lyle Pariseau

EDWARD LYLE PARISEAU

Edward Lyle Pariseau, 84, died April 27, 2015, at Central Washington Hospital surrounded by his family. Ed was born in Fargo, North Dakota on December 2, 1930, the first of five children born to John Elmer Pariseau and Katherine Yocum Pariseau. The family moved repeatedly during Ed’s youth: Fargo, Minot, Des Moines, Washington D.C., Prineville, Brewster and Kittitas. In Kittitas Ed met Venna Eve (Evie) Farnham, and they were married on Sept. 15, 1951. During Ed’s single year in Brewster – his sophomore year – he met Danny Gebbers, who became his hunting and fishing buddy, and, later, business partner, and life-long friend. Prior to his senior year at Kittitas High School, his parent’s divorce found the Pariseau children essentially abandoned and they were taken in by Emily Sorenson, who was raising a large family of her own. Ed supported himself through his senior year, and after a winter of hauling hay over Snoqualmie Pass in a semi-truck which gave a choice between using the headlights or the heater – but not both at the same time - wandered into the admissions office at Central Washington College of Education for information and emerged an enrolled student. Ed and Evie’s first child, Marianne, was born in Ellensburg. After receiving his degree in Education at Central, Ed and Evie both were hired by the Tonasket School District in 1953, where Ed taught Math and Physics until 1971, when they moved to Brewster to farm full time. Ed coached basketball and

baseball in Tonasket, taking two basketball teams to the State A tournament in 1967 and 1969. Their second child, Dan, was born there in 1954. Taking a hiatus from teaching in Tonasket, Ed earned a National Science Foundation scholarship for his Master’s Degree, and he attended Notre Dame and Oregon State College, where he earned his M.S. in General Science in 1957. Their third child, John, was born in Corvallis, Ore. In 1958 Ed and Evie bought 20 acres from John and Martha Gebbers on Brewster Flat and planted their first apple orchard. For many years, Ed would teach during the day, then drive to Brewster to work until dark, then drive the 60 miles back to Tonasket. Ed and Evie didn’t really stop planting until 2014, when Ed’s health forced his retirement. Along the way, he and Danny Gebbers planted a partnership orchard, P&G Orchards – heavily skewed to Granny Smith – as well as eventually constructing downstream storage, packing and sales entities, together known as Brewster Heights Packing, Inc. (with key partners Richard and Harris Thomason). Ed served on the boards of the Washington State Apple Commission, the Northwest Horticulture Council, and was a founding board member of North Cascades National Bank. As one would expect of a man who was born during the dark days of the Depression and abandoned at a young age, there was more than the usual amount of steel in Ed Pariseau. However that just was cosmetic cover for his true nature: he was really just a big teddy bear of love. He loved Evie. He loved his brothers, John and Bill. He loved his children, Marianne, Dan, and John. He loved his grandchildren, Cass, Eddie, Nicole, Reagan, Danika, Grace, Danny, Joe, Johnny, Annie, and Marie. He loved to farm. He loved to “put apples in boxes.” He loved the key employees who helped grow his business, such as Gumesindo Churape, Al Cardenas, Isabel Fernandez, and George Wessling (and many, many others). He loved basketball. He loved Tonasket and the Tonasket Tigers and teaching math and physics. He loved Brewster. He loved the United States of America and its freedom. He loved to fly, especially in helicopters. He loved to hunt and fish – from epic arctic sheep hunting adventures with Danny Gebbers, to trying to bag the big mule deer on Bearcat Ridge

Harold R. Christian, 78 of Oroville, passed away at 9 p.m. Friday, May 8, 2015. He was born August 15th1936 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Cleo and Mary Christian of Rush, Colorado. He is survived by his wife, Kay Boss Christian of Oroville, Wash. He was a proud father of Dan Christian, Lynn Christian, Shawn Christian, Zane Christian, Bridget Nyberg, Scott Christian, Andy Christian, Eric Christian, Jodie Christian, and countless foster children; brother, Charles

Christian of Colorado; sister, Verna Reins of Indiana; and sister, Dorothy Bivins of Arizona. He served in the U.S. Army. He was particularly proud of his work at Coca Cola. He enjoyed wood working and the rural life. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus. Services for Harold will be held 11 a.m. Friday, May 15, 2015 at the Immaculate Conception Church, 1715 Main Street, Oroville, Wash. Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel of Okanogan is caring for the arrangements.

MS and completing coursework toward a Ph.D. After a six-week courtship, he and Laura Bindrup eloped, embarking on a marriage of 55 years with three children, Ben Jr., Sharon, and Barbara. Ben enjoyed a long career at Boeing, from his early days in the AWACS program to his path as an executive in Boeing Computer Services and Boeing Support Services, living in Seattle, Richland, and Washington, DC. In 1973, he completed an executive management program at Columbia University. Throughout his life, Ben also worked behind the scenes on the family business, Prince’s, run by his brother, Jim. He and Jim were grateful for the opportunity to carry on their father’s legacy for many years in Oroville. Ben loved to fly small airplanes of all kinds, taking his Cessna 182 on many excursions, and even piloting float planes, gliders, and aerobatic planes. While running BCS Richland, he kept a hobby farm with a menagerie of horses and dogs and an alfalfa crop and loved his years as “horse show dad.” He also enjoyed restoring and driving British cars, especially the 1954 MGTF he rebuilt from the ground up. He reveled in

the intellectual search for unique solutions to mechanical challenges with these quirky cars – and enjoyed the kindred spirits he knew through the MG clubs over the years. Ben was also an accomplished jazz pianist who played by ear, as well as a talented swing dancer; jazz was the soundtrack of his life. Despite his busy career, Ben always put family first; he was the rock and center of his family. One of the greatest joys in Ben’s life was being a grandfather to his beloved Madeline and Matt. He was a world-class grandpa, always encouraging their interests and never tiring of the fun and games. He is survived and forever cherished by his wife, Laura; son, Ben Prince Jr.; daughters, Sharon Wells (Bill) and Barbara Prince; grandchildren, Madeline and Matt Wells; brother, Jim Prince (Marilyn); and springer spaniels Lucy and Ollie. The memorial service will be held Saturday, May 16, at 2 p.m. at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Mercer Island, Wash. In lieu of flowers, please send remembrances to Emmanuel Episcopal Church or Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.

HAROLD R. CHRISTIAN

Harold R. Christian

Benjamin M. Prince

BENJAMIN M. PRINCE Benjamin M. Prince, 79, of Mercer Island, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, passed away peacefully on May 5, 2015, after a 2 ½ year battle with brain cancer. Born Aug. 20, 1935, in Oroville to Ben and Hazel Prince, he graduated from Oroville High School and then went on to study math and physics at the University of Washington, earning a BS and

with Danny, Mac, and Dan. He loved music and good food – especially steak, and the fare at Jim and Louise Swickard’s Café Bienville during its short but sweet run in Methow. He loved watching his brother John play basketball and baseball at the University of Washington during the 1950s; he loved watching his son John play basketball for Puget Sound during the 80s, and he especially loved watching grandchildren Danny and Reagan play basketball at Santa Clara and Arizona State respectively. He loved attending various other activities of his children and grandchildren – AAU and high school ball games, dance recitals, graduations, weddings, baptisms – the entire gamut of family life. He was determined to give his children and grandchildren a better upbringing than he experienced and in that most important endeavor he succeeded fabulously.

EILEEN AUGUSTA ROWTON FLOCH

Eileen Augusta Rowton Floch of Okanogan, Washington, passed away peacefully at her home May 4, 2015. She was born on June 19, 1930, in the hilltop community of Molson, Wash. to Olaf and Eva Rise. Both Olaf and Eva’s families emigrated from Scandinavia, one from Norway and the other from Sweden. The young family lived and worked on Eva’s parents’ dairy farm located just shy of the Canadian border. Mom and her sisters grew up in the picturesque two-story farmhouse built by their Grandpa and Grandma Anderson. Mom loved to reminisce about her grandmother, whom she is named after, sitting on the wide wraparound porch peeling apples and calling to her in her heavy Swedish accent. The multi-generational family embraced America, but family life was rooted in the traditions of the old country, as well, with holiday meals of lutefisk, flat bread and pickled herring. Mom was fond of telling the story of her birth, which was in the family kitchen on the kitchen table. We are convinced that her birth on the kitchen table influenced the rest of her life. The kitchen was always her favorite room in our house. And the kitch-

en table was the site of wonderful meals, gathering of family and friends over coffee and the place where she and dad corralled their brood of six children to instruct, praise and chew out. We learned that during our chewing out from mom, to never make the mistake of talking back to her or we might get chased around that kitchen table with mom swatting our backside with the broom. Eileen attended school in Molson and graduated in 1948. She married Joshua Erwin Rowton on Nov. 21, 1948 and they raised their six children, Bruce, Dale, Verle, Risë, Evan and David on the family farm in Molson. Mom recently shared with us that she really doesn’t remember a lot about those early years because the farm, diapers, everybody getting chickenpox and measles and keeping us all fed those years are a blur. Well we remember, you and dad gave us some great memories like the time you started the house on fire. Mom loved a rip-roaring fire in the furnace and one time the fire burst from the chimney and browned the wall behind the stove. We loved the trips to Art’s Drive-In for burgers by the bagful and it took lots of bags of burgers to feed us. We remember the wonderful picnics and swimming at Lost Lake. And we remember your obsession with curtains. Curtains were a great love of mom’s and changing them every few months was not unusual. After dad passed away, mom

married Fred Floch on Sept. 5, 1987, and moved to Okanogan. Fred embraced this large, extended family and brought a new twinkle to mom’s pretty blue eyes. Her life with Fred included a circle of good friends, tending her flowers, keeping up with the happenings of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Fred brought a new tradition to our family: that of a toast at family meals. So, I’ll end with a toast: Let’s have a toast to a woman named Eileen In our hearts she’ll always be Queen. Even though you’re not hungry, she’ll give you food And you’ll eat it, so as not to be rude. She will love you from the start And carry you in her heart. A stronger woman you will never find. She is steadfast and true, loving and kind. So here’s to a woman named Eileen, In our hearts you will always be Queen. A celebration of life will be held Saturday, June 13 at noon at the Molson Grange Hall in Molson, Wash. Sandwiches and drinks will be provided by the family, we would appreciate your contribution of salad or dessert. iwn lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Molson Historical Society

A New Start for the Omak Mill Omak Wood Products was formed in 2013 as the result of a partnership agreement between New Wood Resources and the Colville Tribal Federal Corporation to reopen and operate the tribe’s long-idled plywood and veneer mill, as well as a wood supply agreement to purchase timber from tribal forestlands. By reopening the mill, Omak Wood Products is driving economic development in the area and helping preserve a crucial piece of the community’s past and present.

Tigers drop two to Fillies BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

As this article goes to press, the Tonasket Tigers will have to win both softball games against Lake Roosevelt Tuesday, May 12, to play the Oroville Hornets to see who will go to Districts. Tonasket hosted Bridgeport for a doubleheader Saturday, May 2.

The Tigers lost the first game 3-15, and the second game 2-22. In the first game, the Tigers first two runs were on walks to first. Sam Keller earned the third run after stealing second and third base before being batted in. In the second game, Olivia Sutton scored the first run and Vanessa Pershing scoring the second.

“Is that the same pitcher you had last year?” Bridgeport parent Benny Polvos asked of Pershing, a junior. “She’s come a long way. That’s a good little pitcher you’ve got.” Polvos is the parent of ShayLee Polvos, first baseman and power hitter for the Fillies. Henry Austin is in his second year as head coach at Bridgeport after two years as assistant coach.

Hornets fight hard against #1 team in league BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

The Hornets made the Bulldogs work for a second win when Oroville hosted Okanogan for a doubleheader Saturday, May 2. Oroville lost the first game 0-22 and the second game 12-23. Okanogan is currently first in the league with 15 conference wins and one loss. “It was a great second game,” said Head Coach Dane Forrester. “We fought hard in the first game, but we didn’t work together as a team like we did in the second game.” Okanogan Coach Darin Radke

is in his sixth year coaching the Bulldogs. As this paper goes to press, if the Hornets sweep Bridgeport in a doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday, May 12, they will compete in Districts with a play-in game Thursday, May 14. Because the North division of Central Washington B League has five teams and the South division only has four, the play-in game determines who goes on to District play-offs. If Tonasket also wins both their games against Lake Roosevelt Tuesday, May 12, there will be a three-way tie between the Hornets, Tigers and Fillies.

North Country Car Club cruises into busy season Next event Rally at the Border Blues Fest in Oroville BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

The North Okanogan Country Car Club kicked off its season of cruising Saturday, April 18, with a run to Chelan to view a private collection of classic cars and enjoy a BBQ lunch. The club of about 20 members plans different activities for spring, summer and fall, with an annual car show at the Tonasket Rodeo Grounds. Some of the car club’s prized wheels can be viewed at this weekend’s Rally at the Border Blues Fest in Oroville May 16-17. The club takes a run to Republic May 23, and will cruise in the Tonasket Founders Day Parade May 30. The annual North Country Car Club Car Show will be held Saturday, June 20, at the Tonasket Rodeo Grounds from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a Silent Auction and Tractor

Slow Drag. Top Four Awards go to Best Paint, Best Upholstery, Best Engine and Besto of Show. Awards for first through third place are given in 17 categories, including Motorcycles, Trucks, Tractors, Teenage, Antique and Newer. There is even a category called ‘project’ for things still in the works. The organization is open to anyone “who is interested in and loves cars for something other than just transportation.” Teenagers are especially invited. Individual/Family membership is just $15 per year and includes a monthly newsletter. Meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of each month all year long at Whistlers Family Restaurant in Tonasket, unless otherwise noted in the newsletter (the group occasionally does a potluck or picnic at someone’s home). The group meets at 6:30 p.m. with meetings

beginning at 7 p.m. All ages are welcome. Extra money gathered from membership dues and event activities, as well as supporters and private individuals who donate, is given to organizations of the club’s choosing. In the past they have purchased items for the Tonasket Senior Center, purchased tool for Tonasket High School’s Agriculture class, and purchased clothing and blankets for North Valley Hospital’s Extended Care. “We give back to the community, and we bring business to the area with people coming to our car shows stopping in town for meals and shopping,” said President Patti Hill. For more information, contact Hill at 509-429-2983 or poohnova@gmail.com or Vice President Lee Chapman at 509-476-4626 or lchapman@ncidata.com.

OMAK – Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus (OVOC) will be doing a second run this weekend (May 15, 16 and 17) of ‘Into the Woods’ at the Omak Performing Arts Center. A conglomerate of classic fairy tales with original spins, the program includes music and lyrics composed by Stephen Sondheim. Six-time producer for OVOV Kim Harriman said it was probably “the most difficult show we have done, in regards to vocals and orchestration.” But he said the cast has really stepped up to learn everything, adding, “It just goes to show you how people can rise to the occasion even if you set expectations high.” Rising to the occasion are cast members and production assistants from Chelan, Oroville, Nespelem and other areas surrounding Omak. Samantha Rabenold of Oroville is heading the props department of the production. Bestsy Rainsford, cast as the Witch, said the raw clay of the cast has been molded into a show by not only Director Judy Johnston, but also by Music Director and Pianist Kathryn Castrodale and Vocal Directors Jonathan

WENATCHEE - The Tonasket fourth grade Math is Cool team took second place at Regionals in Wenatchee April 17, with Joe Thornton taking first place in the individual competitions. “I’m lucky,” said Thornton, “math has always just come easy to me.” Thornton was the top fourth grader among all Division II schools in North Central Washington, from Oroville to Yakima.

Joe Thornton took first place among 152 mathematicians, and will be competing at State May 16

Tonasket’s team of 20 students, coached by Scott Olson and Kari Alexander, competed with 152 students from 12 schools. Isaiahs Sanchez took 11th place, and coming in at 14th place was Sarah Silverthorn. “I am very proud of the kids’ academic performance and for the way they represented our community while traveling,” said Jeremy Clark, Tonasket Elementary School Principal. “They brought home a beautiful plaque for our trophy case.” Thornton will be competing at the State level, along with the 5th grade Math is Cool team, when they travel to the Masters Competition in Moses Lake May 16.

TONASKET - The North Central Educational Service District presented the 30th Annual Okanogan County Excellence Banquet at Tonasket High School on Thursday, May 7. Steve Quick, superintendent from the Oroville School District, was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Entertainment for the evening was provided by

the Oroville Junior/Senior High School Band, directed by Eric Stiles. A prime rib dinner was catered by Eric Smith and crew. Special remarks were delivered by NCESD Superintendent Rich McBride before a video presentation of all the teachers and support personnel from each District was shown. “The format for the evening changed this year to each district providing a three minute highlight video of each district’s chosen teacher of the year and classified employee of the year. All nine school districts in the county were represented with almost 200 people in attendance,” said Quick Excellence in Education

Award Recipients: Brewster School District, Ann George; Jennifer Reynolds; Bridgeport School District, Jo Aneshansley and Cipriana Montes; Methow Valley School District, Jennifer Duguay and Chris Eckstrom; Nespelem School District, Christina Christopherson and Marla Higgins; Okanogan School District, Jeff Cheeseman and Cari Zachow; Omak School District, Sean Kato and Lloyd Foster; Oroville School District, Julie Tyus and Crystal Milholland; Pateros School District, Elyse Darwood and Ana Vazquez and Tonasket School District, Jamie Portwood and Elizabeth Nordblad.

Oroville High School has been offering Running Start and College in the High School Classes for the three years now. The Running Start program consists of high school juniors and seniors taking college credit courses and receiving dual credit for them. For example, a student taking a RS U.S. History course would receive five credits from the college or university as well as one credit of high school credit for the same class. We first began offering Running Start classes through Eastern Washington University during the 2012-2013 school

year. Our partnership with EWU allowed us to offer a U.S. History course. During the next school year those classes expanded with English 101 and 320 being offered through EWU and U.S. History and CWP being offered through Spokane Falls Community Colleges. During the 2014-15 school year we have expanded these courses yet again and now are working with EWU, SFCC as well as Central Washington University. Through EWU we are offering two English courses for a total of 10 credits. SFCC courses have increased to 10 credits of US History and five credits of Political Science for a total of 15 credits. The courses we added through CWU this year were

Computer Technology, Spanish I, Advanced Biology, Pre Calculus I and Pre Calculus II. Currently a student could graduate from Oroville High School with 50 college credits. We are looking at which classes we can add to our program next year and we will continue to work with our partnering colleges and universities as well as Washington state to try to achieve our goal of students having the option to earn an AA Degree without ever having to leave our high school campus. If you would like more information about the college courses that we currently are offering to our students then please call the high school office at 509476-3612 or email me at Kristin. sarmiento@oroville.wednet.edu

Tonasket Alternative School chooses a new name BY KATIE TEACHOUT

KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - The Tonasket School Board voted to approve a change of name for the Tonasket Alternative School on Monday, May 11. Lead teacher Chelsea Freeman and students Jacob ReisnerCallum and Matthew Burton presented the request at the April 27 school board meeting. The students voiced concern over negative stigma associated with the word ‘alternative,’ and said they “didn’t want to be known as the bad kids or losers or whatever else people think” when the students said they attended the alternative school. Freeman said school staff and students work hard to communicate with the public about all the good things the school does, including each student being required to ten hours of volunteer work per year. “But we’ve gotten suggestions from others and WALA (Washington Association for Learning Alternatives) suggesting ALE (Alternative Learning Experience) schools change their name and take out ‘alternative,’ said Freeman. The new name chosen by

students and staff is Tonasket Choice High School. They’ve also chosen a new motto; a quote by Carl Jung: “I am not what has happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” “We think choice supports our vision for the future of this school,” said Freeman. “Students have to make a choice every day to attend school, they choose their attitude every day, they choose to be a part of our school community, and they make a choice to change their own lives.” Choices made by students have led to test scores reflecting 58% of students had met the NWEA growth goals for the year as of January, and 62% for math. “It is important to note that those are our test scores as of January, which represents the halfway point of the year. By the end of the year we expect to hit at least the district requirement of 80% meeting growth goals in math and reading,” said Freeman. Students presenting for the school board pointed out they really appreciated Enrichment Class activities being available for kids who score at or above grade level on CFAs (Common Formative Assessments). Freeman said the CFAs are given regularly in math and English

classes to make sure all students are at the level of understanding they should be, adding this year the school tried to use a lot of the same CFAs used by the high school. Enrichment class offerings available to the kids so far this year include macrame, plaster mask making, debate, class film critique, values flags, song analysis, watercolor painting and pie making. The students also expressed enjoyment of a cooking class, offered for the first time this year since 2009/10. “Cooking class took place thanks to Jana Ewing, because she came and taught that class while I took my prep period first semester,” said Freeman. “Jana is a substitute teacher in our district, and in order to teach that class she missed a lot of sub days. We are grateful to her for that, and the kids loved the class!” Tonasket Alternative School is choosing to organize the firstever reunion for all past and current graduates and staff. Freeman expressed her desire to the school board to be able to announce the new name of the school at the reunion, still in the planning stages. The school opened in 1995
