Contract not extended for Supt. Quick
LIGHT UP THE NIGHT
Oroville School principals renewed by ‘default’ BY GARY A. DE VON EDITOR@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
OROVILLE – While Oroville’s two school principals’ contracts were renewed by “default,” Superintendent Steve Quick’s contract was not extended for a third year after a motion to approve failed for lack of a second. The motion was called for as part of the agenda from the last school board meeting held Monday, June 29. School Director Todd Hill said he wanted to move to “disapprove” the contract extension, but was told that a motion could only be voted on for approval and that if it did not get enough votes it would be considered “disapproved.” However, Director Amy Wise’s motion to approve the one-year extension didn’t get a second and failed. “The motion dies for a lack of a second,” said Director Rocky DeVon, the board chairman. This doesn’t mean Quick is going anywhere, he still has two years remaining on a three-year contract and the board could elect to readdress an extension at a future meeting if they choose. The situation regarding the two principals, Joan Hoehn at the elementary and Kristin Sarmiento at the high school,
was even more unusual. When it came to voting on renewing their contracts Hill stepped in at each vote and said they were renewed by “default” because their contracts are renewed automatically unless they are informed that they won’t be by mid-May, which they weren’t. “I move to take no action... after consulting legal council the contract is renewed by default,” said Hill. TEACHING STAFF TO FIGHT BACK The school board briefly discussed two programs that would aid teachers and other staff how to diffuse or end a threat to the school. The first is called GAP Security Officer Training the other would involve special training that would allow certain staff to have to be armed on school grounds. “I really like the GAP training, it teaches staff how to fight back. If you’re not trained often people tend to panic,” said Director Hill, who is Oroville’s Police Chief. “We’re not talking about arming teachers?” asked Booker. “That’s a different type of training, but it could be part of the equation,” said DeVon. “Three schools in the state have gone through this process.” Booker said having to arm teachers

Oroville’s Community Fireworks Display was delayed a day after pyro-technician Bryan Sawyer was injured when a test shot misfired about 5 p.m. After consulting with the show’s sponsors, the Oroville Chamber of Commerce, it was announced that the annual display would take place on Sunday. Sawyer, still recovering from his injuries, and another licensed pyro-technician were on hand Sunday and some special shells were added to the mix. This moment from the grand finale’, above, capped off a colorful Fourth of July display, even if it took place on the evening of the fifth.
TONASKET - Bathing-suit clad revelers and ladies in waterproof skirts turned out for a trial run of Tonasket’s Water Ranch during the noon hour Tuesday, June 30. Bob McGarvey and Dennis Vomastic with Northwest Playground Equipment, Inc., arrived in the morning to set the timing on the water features, installed the previous day by Ty Olson and crew. “The contractor did a great job. We just came in to tweak it a little,” said
McGarvey, adding they would “play around with the throttle valves a little more” that afternoon. They also spent time with the city crew, showing them how to run the system. “We went through the system and the programming of it. It’s pretty simple, but the control work is really interesting,” said Hugh Jensen, City Maintenance Supervisor. “It looks great, and I expect this to be a very popular park,” McGarvey said. “When communities put them in, they

Voters to decide on Parks & Rec District this fall BY KATIE TEACHOUT
OKANOGAN - Okanogan County Commissioners gave their support to the formation of a Parks and Recreation District in Tonasket on Monday, June 29. The measure will go on the ballot in the fall for voters to decide on. The proposed Parks and Recreation District covers an area with an approximate radius of 15 miles around Tonasket. “We would like to thank the county commissioners for their unanimous support of the effort to form a parks and recreation district in the greater Tonasket area,” said Jen Weddle. “We are excited that Tonasket will have an opportunity
to vote on whether a recreation district is right for our community.” Weddle, who serves as Secretary for the Tonasket Swimming Pool Association, is one of several volunteers who formed a Parks and Recreation Feasibility Study Group that began meeting once a week last March to look at how a Parks and Recreation District might be able to help realize the city having a swimming pool again. The group conducted a detailed survey on parks and recreation needs in the Tonasket area. Tonasket Councilwoman Claire Jeffko said Peter James, Norm Weddle, Jen Weddle, Jen Ward, Emily Bjelland, Rob Thompson, Michele Glovia, herself and fellow council member Scott Olsen
“started brainstorming for at least six to eight weeks. Every single Monday we met, as we were determined to succeed.” Jeffko said the group gathered 560 signatures on a petition to put it on the ballot. “I got twenty-five signatures in one hour. It took us less than a week to get the required amount,” said Jeffko. “We all just took petitions and ran with it. It was quite a wonderful effort. Everyone worked together seamlessly.” The study group met with the county commissioners on two occasions. Jeffko said the second meeting saw supporters in the audience where before there had been none. “The Chamber was represented, the
Pool committee was represented, and nurses spoke in favor of aqua therapy,” said Jeffko. “Monte Smith’s granddaughter and Noni Alley presented great talking points. Being the last to speak, I just spoke from a grandmother point of view. My grandchildren learned to swim in Tonasket, and when the eldest fell into Lake Washington, tragedy was averted because he had swim lessons. Swim lessons are a vital tool that should be available to all children regardless of family income.” “It was amazing to pull it off. The commissioners supported it unanimously,” said Norm Weddle. County Commissioner Sheilah Kennedy said one concern discussed by
commissioners was creating another JR Taxing District and taxing the people. “Once created and taxed, it usually never goes away,” said Kennedy. “But it was also recognized the importance to our children.” The levy rate is set at about $15 per $100,000. “The commissioners said they hate to raise taxes, but it is an investment in the kids, and for the community,” said Karen Stangland, Treasurer of the Tonasket Swimming Pool Association. “It is impressive the work that went into this and the amount of money raised,” Kennedy said. The pool association has raised over half a million dollars so far.

“It’s very nice to have my girlfriends here to celebrate with me,” Linda Black, Project Coordinator Tonasket Water Ranch
Linda Black, who spearheaded the idea for the Water Park four years ago and anticipated it would take two years at most to complete was relieved for the process to finally be over. Her “support team” of girlfriends joined her at the Water Ranch before taking her to Shannon’s for lunch and an afternoon float down the river. “It’s very nice to have my girlfriends here to celebrate with me,” said Black. “They’ve been hearing about this project way too long, so maybe now I can talk about other things.” “We’re not going to let her sign up for anymore volunteer projects for awhile,” joked Black’s friend Collette Biele of Oroville. The City of Tonasket does not yet know when it will be ready to open the Water Ranch to the public.

FIRE | FROM A1 the call went out at 10:23 p.m. and firefighters were on the scene at 10:25 p.m. Nine firemen with five fire trucks were able to confine the fire to the roof and eaves of the home. “It started to get our garage, but they knocked it out,” said Angie Hart, pointing out metal roofing on the neighbor’s house that began to buckle from the heat.
said the home is not livable at all; between the fire, smoke and water damage. “It’s pretty bad on the inside,” said Doddie Hart. “Farmers Insurance has been wonderful to work with. All the neighbors and the whole town has been supportive; all their prayers and wanting to do stuff for us. Tonasket is a great community to live in.”
Angie Hart said she was working at the Asian Bistro at Twelve Tribes Casino when she got the call from her mom. “I had someone get ahold of my boss and tell her I had to leave. Eight members (of the fire department) were sitting down at the hall. They got here really fast, and I commend their quickness and their teamwork. They did an awesome job.” “We have a fantastic fire department. They were there quick,” said Doddie Hart. Gasho said the fire department has a BBQ down at the fire hall every fourth of July. “There were nine or ten firemen there, as there is always at least one fire in town on the fourth,” said Gasho. Neighbor Mike Ward said he was driving south into town from Highway 97 around 10:30 p.m. when he noticed the fire. “Even with this house burning, there were still a lot of fireworks going off,” said Ward. “I didn’t think anyone in Eastern Washington would still be thinking of doing this. Ordinance in place or not, we should be able to police ourselves and make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Both Angie and Doddie Hart
MAYOR ISSUES PROCLAMATION In a special meeting of the Tonasket City Council held Tuesday, June 30, council members made a motion to adopt the burn ban currently in place by Fire District 4, the agency contracted to provide services to the city of Tonasket. Council members also discussed drafting an ordinance outlawing fireworks, but it would need to be put in place 365 days ahead of time. Mayor Patrick Plumb issued the following proclamation June 30: “At this time the city of Tonasket strongly urges all cititzens to not light or utilize any fireworks in the city limits due to fire danger and the burn ban as adopted by Tonasket City Council on June 30, 2015. This request will take place immediately and be over when the burn ban is lifted by the Tonasket Fire Chief.” Fireworks regulation in Washington state is largely governed by the state fireworks law and the administrative regulations adopted by the Washington State Patrol. Counties and cities can be more restrictive than state restrictions, and can even ban all sale and discharge of fireworks, but they cannot be more liberal.
Firemen remained on scene until 12:02 a.m. July 5. Also on hand were Tonasket Police and EMS.
The state supreme court decision in Brown v. Yakima held that the state fireworks law does not prevent a local government from enacting an ordinance more restrictive than state law; however, any local rules that are more restrictive may be effective no sooner than one year from their adoption, according to RCW 70.77.250.
Yakima County and the City of Spokane Valley both have prohibited the use, sale and discharge of fireworks, other than public displays which require applying for a permit 10 days ahead of time. On the Westside, Bellevue, Kirkland and Shoreline have prohibited fireworks, with Shoreline requiring a 30-day wait on permits for public displays.
Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark banned all outdoor fires, including campfires and fireworks, on Washington State DNR protected lands. Likewise, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission has banned all campfires at state parks. “The fire danger is now unlike any we’ve seen here in a long time, if ever,” said Governor Jay Inslee June 26. “We need to be prepared for the possibility of an unprecedented fire season.” “I have no idea how to convey to people how high the fire danger is in town this year, yet people are setting off fireworks all over the place,” stated Plumb at 10:13 p.m. on July 4. “It’s not that I didn’t try letting people know. Anyone setting off fireworks with a burn ban and with the fire danger being what it is, takes the liability into their own hands tonight.”

OKANOGAN – In response to the current fire conditions Okanogan County Public Health has released an advisory regarding periods of poor air quality and people who may be most sensitive to the smoke in the air. As smoke from fires burning in Okanogan and surrounding counties and Canada moves over Okanogan County, individuals most sensitive or susceptible to airborne particulates such as infants and young children, the elderly, pregnant women, diabetics or those with pre-existing lung and cardiovascular conditions may be experiencing considerable discomfort, according to David Hilton, Environmental Health Director with Okanogan
house, or a public library. Don’t smoke and try to avoid physical exertion. Lastly, if you experience symptoms of cardiovascular or lung problems contact your health care provider. If you cannot reach your health care provider call 911.

FIGHT BACK | FROM A1 would be a “sad state of affairs,” although he was not adverse to the GAP training. “Honestly Ed, it would not be open to every staff member, there would be a screening and selection process,” DeVon said. Hill added that Supt. Quick, who was not present, said it was
something to talk about and perhaps have a public forum. “I think we have to have a discussion about this, it doesn’t mean we have to do it,” said Director Mike Egerton. “I think we need a healthy debate, I want to know what the community thinks, what the teachers think.”
Hill added, “We don’t even know what our insurers would say.” Students at the schools he had visited felt it was a positive step, according to DeVon. “But GAP and firearms are two separate issues,” DeVon said, adding that public input was needed.

NORTHWEST AVIATION OPERATIONS OFF-BASE HELICOPTER TRAINING AREAS
The Aviation Division within the Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization, and Security at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) proposes to establish three off-base helicopter training areas and one mountain training area. The U.S. Army is the lead Federal agency for the proposed action. The proposed training areas would support training operations stationed out of JBLM, but would be located off-base within Washington State. The Army has prepared a scoping document which is intended to provide interested parties the proposed scope of the Environmental Assessment and to seek additional information pertinent to this analysis. If you have any information that would assist us in conducting an accurate and thorough analysis of the project-specific and cumulative effects associated with the proposed project, you are encouraged to submit them during the scoping period, July 1, 2015 to July 30, 2015.

THE TOWN CRIER
King v. Burwell: Activist Court bails out Obamacare OPINION BY U.S. REP. DAN NEWHOUSE (R) FOURTH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT - WA
Last week in a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court accepted the federal government’s argument in the case of King v. Burwell, and in the process effectively rewrote legislative text. I was deeply disappointed with the Court’s ruling. Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent that, “the Court forgets that ours is a government of laws and not of men.” The Court’s decision effectively rescued Obamacare from its own text, setting a worrisome precedent that ignores the legislative role our Constitution gives exclusively to the people’s elected representatives in Congress. The issue before the Court centered on whether the wording of the text of Obamacare authorizes billions of dollars in federal tax credit subsidies to apply to health plans available on the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov. However, the exact wording in law refers only to subsidies for exchanges “established by the State.” Despite the language of the law, the Internal Revenue Service extended tax credit subsidies to plans on federal exchanges in states that had declined to set up a state exchange. The IRS’s actions were challenged in the Supreme Court since these plans were not purchased in exchanges “established by the State.” The Court’s conclusion that federal subsidies were authorized by Congress required the majority of the justices to conduct what Justice Scalia called, “interpretive jiggery-pokery” in his dissent. Justice Scalia continued: “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a state is ‘established by the state.’” While the Court’s decision would not have an immediate effect on Washington State, because the state opted to establish a state exchange that was clearly eligible for federal subsidies, the legal precedent that the Court has put in place will certainly have future ramifications for the principle of the separation of powers. Most disturbing - the principle that only Congress has the responsibility to write the law has been muddied by this ruling. This is not the first time that the Court has bailed out Obamacare. In a separate case in 2012, the Court upheld a key provision of the President’s law: the individual mandate requiring Americans to purchase health insurance or face a fine. Instead of striking down the individual mandate as an unconstitutional penalty that is not authorized by the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution, the Court upheld the mandate as a tax. I have heard from many constituents from Central Washington who are worried about the uncertainty created by Obamacare. Retirees have contacted my office with concerns about their health insurance becoming less affordable after the enactment of Obamacare. President Obama famously promised Americans that if they liked their insurance, they could keep their insurance. Sadly, we know after the fact that is simply not true. I voted to repeal Obamacare because Americans do not want a one-size-fits-all healthcare system run by government bureaucrats. Americans deserve a patient-centered approach that ends federal mandates and makes access to health care more affordable. I am committed to working with my colleagues in Congress to protect Americans from this fundamentally broken law, and I will continue to fight to empower patients rather than the government with their health care decisions.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR NOAA could take the lead on Enloe Dam
Dear Editor, Enloe Dam has been out of the news since the “No on Enloe” Campaign put its collective foot down last February. It was clearly demonstrated, using PUD estimates, Enloe Dam Electrification would lose $1.2-1.7 million dollars annually. The $40-50 million dollar construction price tag will require continuous rate increases no one can afford and creates a downward spiral of debt that could bankrupt more than just the PUD. The ratepayers of Okanogan County have voted twice on this issue, turning out two incumbent PUD Commissioners who campaigned for electrification. Recognizing the net economic loses that would result from electrification of Enloe Dam, our current commissioners told ratepayers they needed a “large federal agency with deep pockets” to assume all liability for Enloe Dam before they could walk away. Last Tuesday, June 30th,the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Marine Fisheries Service met with Commissioner Vejraska, Manager John Grubich and other staff, to discuss their interest in becoming the lead agency for the removal of Enloe Dam. This is great news.
ITEMS FROM THE PAST COMPILED BY CLAYTON EMRY
We may have the lead agency we have been waiting for. This meeting with N.O.A.A. will probably be discussed at the next PUD meeting, Monday, July 13th at 2:30pm. Interested Ratepayers and local residents should contact their commissioners and plan to attend Monday’s meeting. We need to help the PUD make the right decisions going forward.

What would John Adams think about Obama?
Dear Editor, On March 4th 1797 John Adams gave his first and only Inaugural Address. This man’s zeal for freedom from the tyranny of Great Britain’s rule is evident in the first paragraph of his address. To have another authority over the people of this land was repugnant to John Adams. Fast forward 218 years and consider the words and philosophy of today’s Whitehouse occupant, at the U.N. General Assembly, the offscouring of Chicago attempted to appease the Muslim world by saying that: “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” My question is, can freedom loving Democrats remain comfortable with a state-
Woodbury Lumber Company for $1,518.36, for the plumbing, Oroville Plumbing & Hardware for $228.56 and for electrical from Jordan Krusoff for $155.30. This should leave about $2,100 for the actual construction which will be within the $4,000 in the budget. The Okanogan Valley apple crop will be slightly above that of last year and the largest since 1937. The estimate of 5,347 cars against the actual 4,553 from last season.

50 years Ago:
75 years Ago: Friday, July 5 - 12, 1940: Oroville made the largest gain in population of any town in Okanogan County during the past ten years according to figures release last week from the district supervisor for Wenatchee. From 800 population in 1930 to 1195 in 1940 for a gain of 395. Tonasket gained from 514 to 635 for a gain of 121, Riverside came up with a loss from 218 to 191, while Omak grew from 1929 to 2547 and Okanogan, from 1519 to 1730. Okanogan County showed a gain from 18,519 to 24,519 for a total for the county of 6100. On Wednesday afternoon, July 10, the Oroville Methodist Women will bring into being a new organization for the women. The name of the new group will be called “Women’s Organization for Christian Service” and will replace three previous groups, Women’s Foreign Missionary, Women’s Home Missionary and the Ladies Aid. The Economy Motors garage and implement business changed hands the first of the week and is now owned by G. O. Potter. He is well known in Oroville, having been Town Marshal and Clerk for several years. Mr. Potter stated that he intended to keep Bob Jackson as bookkeeper and in charge of parts while Ralph Van Brunt will continue as mechanic. People in the Oroville vicinity of any age who like to swim but can’t, will have an opportunity of learning under a qualified Red Cross instructor from July 22 to July 29 inclusive. The Civic League and Boy Scouts are sponsoring the course. There will be no charge for this instruction. Work was actually started on the construction of the Town of Oroville’s City Hall and Jail Wednesday morning under the supervision of W. E. Jones and is expected to be completed within the next sixty days. The bid for materials was accepted from
July 8 - 15, 1940: In spite of the fact that there were no organized community activities, held on the Fourth of July, the town was covered with people. The large percentage were persons coming to the area for sunshine, swimming, picnicking, fishing and many other activities in the valley. Marge Frazier, official weather recorder for Oroville, posted the weather beginning July 4th, with a high of 91 degrees and a low of 64; July 5, 95 and 50; July 6, 97 and 51; July 7, 95 and 66 Chief Buck Gates said his office was kept busy over the play day by arresting and jailing 25 persons over the three days. All arrests were for being drunk and disorderly. An ad for Freeman’s Berry Farm Truck sponsored by the Civic League for fresh-frozen – uncooked jams and locker ready fruits. Fresh Frozen, 30 lb. strawberries, in sugar, $11.59 per tin; 30 lbs. raspberries in syrup, $11.10 per tin; 30 lbs. sour cherries in sugar, $10.50 in tins and 3 lbs huckleberries, $1.95 per tub. Don Hughes shot a near par 36 holes to beat out Charles Cox for the coveted Club Championship trophy on July 9 at the Oroville Golf Course. It was a good match and Charlie gave him a good battle. The new slate of officers have been installed for the Civic League as follows: Katie Strickler, president; Lucille Landreth, first vice president; Emma Armstrong, second vice president; Molly McDonough third vice president; Kathleen Prince, secretary and Muriel Turner treasurer. This was the first season for the Girl’s Little League Softball. There were four teams of 14 players in each in the league as follows: Braves, coached by Susan Chamberlin and Joan Fleischman; Giants, coached by May Valentine and Henry Steg; Yankees, coached by Wreathel Loose and Shellie Taber and Pirates, coached by Mary Lou Barnett and Sharon Manchester.

ment like this from their guy? Or is this another one of those cases where the formative religious dogma that whirls around in Barak’s head found an exit though his mouth and is totally taken out of context? Or maybe the bigger question is, do freedom loving Democrats exist? Will Democrats mechanically rejoice if the United Nations Small Arms Treaty is signed, because our transformational President thinks it is a good idea, regardless how contrary to the Bill of Rights it is? Both of these represent an authority that is foreign to us in one form or another. John Adams service in securing freedom and liberty for this Nation is a testimony to his desired that these be passed on to future generations. The service of our Socialist, Progressive, Marxist, Muslim President continues to be a testimony to his desire for this country; this is why the arrest and conviction of this man would only be a small step on the journey back to the constitutional foundations John Adams helped establish. Your July 2 cartoon with John Adams thoughts on celebrating the Fourth of July and the ban on fireworks was cute, but it seems that there is a growing ban on why we celebrate the Fourth not so much how.

25 years Ago: July 5 - 12, 1990: Former Tonasket Mayor, Ron Weeks, Spence Higby, an Oroville business man and Mike “Buffalo” Mazetti, former Tonasket business manager, have all filed for the position of Okanogan County Commissioner for the Third District to replace Mel Kuhlman, whose term is up, but could possibly file later. Vandals are taking a toll on Tonasket Ranger District lookouts, gates, signs and campgrounds and the Okanogan National Forest officials are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to their conviction. Work is going on at an accelerated rate at the new Tonasket Senior Housing facility. Framing is complete on the ground floor of the soon to be two story structure that will house 30 units. Between 400 – 600 people showed up for North County’s First Annual LaQuemes (the Festival) last Saturday at Deep Bay Park. It included everything from the breaking of pinatas to dances and music, plus a variety of Mexican foods. The list for the county commissioner’s position now has some additions. Bob Hirst, local businessman has declared as a democrat and Ed Thiele from North Omak as a Republican. Doug Adams, of Riverside, has been approached but as yet hasn’t made up his mind. Nearly 4,000 spectators packed the small community of Chesaw, for the 48th Annual Chesaw Fourth of July Rodeo. Nick Zabreznik, of Tonasket, rode away with Best All-Around Cowboy honors. Best All-Around Junior title went to another Tonasket native, Seth Buchert, age 14. Several feet of the bank alongside the Oroville-Nighthawk Road was washed away in last Friday’s rain storm. Water was across the road in several spots and the County Road crews were called to fix the bank and several other areas where the water had caused damage. Real Estate Bargains: 4 plus acres on the west side o river, 6 miles south of Oroville, well easement, 30 apple trees, $12,500.00; On a large city lot, new vinyl siding and metal roof, walking distance to business district, $39,500 on owner contract: Close to National Forest, lots of nice trees, super recreation site, $6,000 on owner’s terms of $3,500 cash.
OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE | JULY 9, 2015
OKANOGAN VALLEY LIFE July bringing lightening storms rain and fires Into July with some very hot temperatures, some severe lightning storms and small amounts of rain. I guess that would be called a variety of weather. The rain came just in case there a few cherries left on the trees. The huge fire in Wenatchee area did a lot of damage from severe stress to destroying entire properties. Our “baby” had her 60th birthday right in the middle of it and had to evacuate the near fifty residents at the Assisted Living, which she manages. Can you imagine having to wake up all those elderly folks at 10 p.m. after they’d been snugly tucked into bed, and telling them “we must leave the building and go to Eastmont High School” until the fire is under control, while some were half asleep and others didn’t understand. But they made it safely. Although one man refused to get on the bus and his children had to come for him. Kinda like a grade school child, only in reverse. Congratulations to Marvin and Ginger (Cody) Miller on their 50th Wedding Anniversary, and Riley and Lorene Fewkes also and not to forget Chet and Marjorie (York) Guyll for their Diamond 60 years Anniversary. Jason and Stephanie Haney recently returned from a trip through California, Nevada, Arizona and thought the Okanogan Valley looked green and prettier than lots that they saw, due to the severe water shortages in a lot of places. Condolences to the Ray and Jean Funston family due to the death of their

After having had the same cooks at the Senior Center for 23 years, the replacements will be: Head cook Peggy Doyle with Danny Rodregueiz as aid and relief aid will be Luke Doyle, Peggy’s husband. They were warmly welcomed last week. Soon the weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market will be having lots of fresh veggies. As usual I am waiting for the first of the ripe tomatoes and cukes. Last Monday, at 3 p.m. I glanced out the front window, and thought, “What a big dog at the house across the street.” A second look, found that it was a deer not a dog. And Saturday night across the street from the Senior Center was a big raccoon galloping along. We have the beginnings of a zoo right in downtown Oroville. A call to Virgil and Donna Forney found that their health issues are no better. We have had so many good times, traveling and visiting with them, it is sad to find them both house bound and uncomfortable. As Virgil says,”this surely isn’t the way we thought things would be.” My favorite, in the way of wearing apparel, has always been shoes. On looking at the pretty ladies, on TV with their extremely short dresses and HIGH heeled shoes, I’m sure they don’t know that the podiatrists are cheering on the sideline just waiting for all the foot care that will be needed to get their feet back

We have just experienced the hottest and driest two weeks in a long time. It was especially hot over the Fourth of July. The temps have been in the three digits during the day and the last three days have dropped down at night so you almost needed a sweater or jacket.

Congratulations to you and thank you to all that purchased a ticket. The club also had another

I am proud to be an American! Remember Kate Smith and her version of “God Bless America” and Lee Greenwood with “I’m Proud to Be an American?” Good Songs! And how about our red, white and blue colors, especially on the symbol of our country, the U.S. Flag. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Europe, Japan and other places in between and so far did not find any place I’d rather live. So, therefore I find it difficult to understand why people who live in America, and enjoy the many freedoms, won’t pledge allegiance to or salute the flag. But, of course that is their choice. It is too bad that some of the major Fourth of July celebrations had to be canceled due to fear of terror attacks. The Ken and Judy Ripley family enjoyed a fun weekend at Lost Lake in their cabin where all the family can gather and come and go as they please. Great family values are learned there when the little children (cousins) get to meet and enjoy each other. Recently we met Louise Kitterman and her daughter Debbie, while they were visiting Debbie’s friend and companion, of a lot of years Lewis Stevensen, at the Extended Care facility in Tonasket. We knew he was ill but was very surprised that he passed away so soon. Condolences to them and other friends of Lewis. The annual fireworks didn’t go as smoothly as most times.

posed to start this week, I’m told. What a hard act to follow. I’m not only talking about the former cooks, but also about Danny’s lunch creation last Thursday. Go Danny. Good job as our fill in cook. (His Assistant, by the way, was Peggy’s husband, if you didn’t know). Wisdom comes from a dedicated lifetime of experiments in belief. And, ones true stature in life is measured by attitude, not altitude.

Tonasket School Board accepts resignations, hears reports Fewer students than state average qualifying for Special Ed services BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
TONASKET - Tonasket School District board members accepted the resignations of High School Resource Room Teacher Kassie Pruitt, Second Grade Teacher Brittany Lawrence and Elementary School Title 1 Paraeducator Kari Alexander at the June 29 meeting. Alexander was hired as a Tonasket Middle School Math Teacher. The school board also approved the hiring of Stephen Sacchi as a Middle School Humanities Teacher, James Caddy as a Middle School Science Teacher and Janine McCormick as a High School CTE Business Teacher. Elizabeth Dell was hired as a School Bus Drier. Azucena Depaz and Michele Lawrence were hired as Migrant/Bilingual Summer
School Para Professionals. The Board also approved the annual contract review and renewal for Robin Whiteley (Taylor) for special education services 2015-17 to support a broader base of special education services and IEP writing for next year. Tonasket School District is currently below the state average in students qualifying for special education services. “When we started the Response to Intervention process, we knew we would see a reduced number of Special Education Students, and this is a reflection of that,” said Special Education Director Liz Stucker. The Board approved 201415 National Board Certification Bonuses for Jackie Glidden, Joyce Fancher and Michelle Silverthorn. The meeting was led by School Board Chair Jerry Asmussen in the absence of Superintendent Paul Turner. Steve McCullough, who plans to move to the area in mid-August, said he spent part of the day in the office “getting some things done” in preparation for the start of his contract
as the new Superintendent, prior to attending the school board meeting. McCullough’s contract began July 1. McCullough asked district secretary Janet Glanzer if documents could be projected onto a big screen “for when board members are all looking down at their screens reading documents that are being discussed” at the public meetings. North Central Washington Educational Service District External Business Manager Trisha Schock, attending the meeting via phone call, reported that the school district’s expenditures and revenues were both ahead of schedule. She said one large expenditure was the purchase of chrome books used for state testing. Schock said the “rough numbers look like I might be able to get a couple additional teachers and pay raises for administrators.” “I think we’re going to have a pretty solid budget,” said Schock. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m. A budget hearing will be held prior to the July 27 meeting, at 7 p.m.
