Ambulance: Oroville Council hears concerns about ‘level of care’ from community Lifeline Ambulance Service meets city’s qualifications BY GARY A. DE VON MANAGING EDITOR
OROVILLE – While no one could point to a situation where the “level of care” was less now that the Emergency Services District has gone to Lifeline for ambulance service, the phrase continues to come up at Oroville City Council meetings. That concern was emphasized by Mark Bordwell, a vocal opponent of the switch to the private ambulance service. Bordwell’s wife served as a volunteer EMT for the EMS District for several years. Lisa Bordwell and her fellow volunteers gave the city an ultimatum when they all submitted their resignation letters to the city stating they would resign at the end of August if, among other
things, something wasn’t done to allevi- they have to retone for a volunteer fireate the shortage of qualified EMTs avail- fighter to drive the ambulance while the two EMTs take care of the patient in the able to respond to calls.

“Too bad this much effort hadn’t gone into solving the problems. Not once did you all get together and talk this out. The EMS crew was drowning, Chris Allen threw them a lifeline,” Bordwell said. Bordwell also chided the city’s ambulance committee, Councilmen Tony Koepke and Jon Neal, for not attending Rural EMS meetings. However, Bordwell apologized when Councilman Koepke informed him that he was at nearly all the meetings to which he referred. “The entire community will suffer if we go to a private service,” concluded Bordwell. After Bordwell was done making his statement, Mayor Chuck Spieth said, “If that’s all you have we’re going to move on.” The city and county have made a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and they received replies from both Lifeline Ambulance Service and North Star Ambulance, a company put together by Allen with the former volunteers as its employees. Chris Branch, the director of

Community Development, explained that the city had determined that Lifeline met the qualifications desired by the city, while North Star fell short. He said the new company could not prove that it had the accounting and administrative structures in place, nor insurance to cover liability. While the city may have approved of Lifeline’s RFQs the county, through the Okanogan County Commissioners, still plays a part in any final decisions. If Lifeline is chosen by both parties, representing Oroville and the rural EMS, to continue providing ambulance service, then both parties will decide how they will negotiate with the company for services and at what level, explained Branch. The Emergency Services District is made up of two distinct taxing districts that work in tandem to provide emergency care and transportation – city and rural. The boundaries for the EMS District are the same as the Oroville School District. The city has been administrating the district though and interlocal agreement with the county.

Artists raise $14,000 for fire survivors BY KATIE TEACHOUT
The Auction for Survivors of Washington Wild Fires, held online last weekend (Sept. 18-20) raised $14,000 with over 150 artistic submissions of prints from Northwest photographers and other artwork. “It was an amazing group of
people that came together,” said event organizer John Poyner of Ellensburg. “Some big name photographers of the Northwest jumped in and donated prints. The people who bid on the items were great, too. They put their money where it was needed. Some said they couldn’t actually afford it, but it was such a good cause they were bidding anyway.”

This an acute need.” There will be several very large dumpsters from Upper Valley Disposal located at the City Shop, 500 Railroad Ave. in Tonasket. Items not able to be accepted
include wet paint, oil, tires, car batteries or hazardous materials. It is not yet known whether appliances will be accepted. In other council business, the City of Tonasket will be requesting from the Town of Pateros the language added to their code after the Carlton Complex to allow recreational vehicles to connect to City Water and Sewer connections in the city with a limit of
two years after adoption of the ordinance so that the conditional variance would then go back to normal zoning rules. “This may need to go before the Planning Commission, but I am hoping to move forward with this by the next meeting to help our neighbors in need,” said Plumb. At the Sept. 8 meeting of the Tonasket City Council, city planner Kurt Danison stated the North
Okanogan communities have “really stepped up and are ahead of expectations on setting up the Long Term Recovery Committee.” The next scheduled meeting of the Tonasket City Council has been moved from Tuesday, Sept. 22 to Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. A public hearing will take place at that meeting for the normal budget process to identify revenue sources.

THE TOWN CRIER
Be especially watchful for wildlife
Bear cubs in the vineyard, cougars strolling by, dead dear up and down the highway. While we’re bound to see more wildlife as we get into fall and winter, there’s obviously been an increase in encounters since this summer’s fires destroyed much of their habitat. After taking the family for a trip down to Enloe Dam, something I can remember doing since I was old enough to drive, we went for a short Sunday drive along the Loomis-Oroville Road. On the way back we stopped to look at a dog that was in the Similkameen. It looked like his owner was dredging for gold. While parked on the side of the road we spotted this buck using the old irrigation canal as his personal highway. He noticed us, but he didn’t seem to be too afraid and just moseyed along as I shot off a bunch of photos. It wasn’t too far Out of from where friends and I had seen a black bear My Mind sauntering down the road a couple years back. at work, showed us photos of deer, Gary A. DeVon Charlene, including a buck, standing amongst her and her husband’s cows. As the weather turns colder we have to start to remember to keep a keen eye out as we travel down the highway, especially in the traditional “high kill” areas like Crumbacher. But we’ve been hearing reports of a lot more road kills in all sorts of places along 97. Be aware. Remember, no place is so important that you can’t slow down a little and keep a watchful eye out for wildlife, especially at night, and especially near Crumbacher. If there’s more than one of you in the vehicle make a game of it and have the kids help you play spot the wildlife. I’ve hit two deer in my life, one near... you guessed it, Crumbacher and one on Steven’s Pass. The first one didn’t even dent my bumper. The second one crumpled the hood and knocked out a headlight on my father’s car. I’m glad he was with me to witness that there’s little you can do when a deer jumps from the hillside right into your path. So as you travel, be safe and give the deer a break – unless of course it’s part of hunting season. Take care.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Volunteer ambulance crew quit the community Dear Gary. As you know there’s an awful uproar with the Senior Citizens over the ambulance service situation. And as I am one of the rural commissioner/advisory board members; I’ve been in it since the very beginning. And it stresses me very much to see how nasty it has become. The very root of the whole thing has been overlooked and given no thought about it’s importance. The EMTs were disgruntled because it was taking so long for the powers that be to get a new program going to help them in their low numbers. We did have a plan on the table to put in motion... but, they handed in their resignations en mass with a very short time for anything else to be done if the area would have any ambulance service at all.... Now we are being blamed for maligning them.... They quit the community! I’m sad to see so much misunderstanding about qualifications.... Never was anything ever said about the EMTs qualifications or abilities.... The whole thing at city council and with the county commissioners was the qualifications to run a business; as is the ambulance service, whether it was our original ambulance service,or what will take its place. It is a business that has to have certain regulations and specific insurances and again qualifications. The new ambulance company just plainly does not have all the qualifications required to serve the community well. Sorry folks, sentiment does not run a business. In God only can we trust, Betty Roberts Oroville

Barnett, deceased in our home. The operator responded that someone would be right there. After several phone calls were made to family and friends, still no response. It wasn’t until a family friend showed up at the home and waited for some time, then drove to City Hall and found them just standing around, and was told what had happened, did they respond. They had NOT received a call from dispatch. Dennis was deceased, but what if it had been a heart attack or stroke or any other major problem. There is no excuse for this, peoples’ lives are depending on you. Mary Lou Barnett Oroville
Meeting with city was a waste of time Dear Editor, What a waste of time attending the city council meeting. What a childish way to end the meeting. You couldn’t get out of the building fast enough. You owe all that were there a public apology. These are people you know and deal with often. They deserve better from you. It doesn’t matter what I think but I expected better from some on the city council. After the meeting I told my wife Life Line is not an option for me personally. Just toss me in the back of the pick up if Tonasket EMS can’t come out our way. If the city council members can’t act like adults then they should resign. Brent Daniels
Freedom of religion This country was founded by people fleeing religious persecution who wanted to pursue their own faith. Our early forefathers/mothers were looking for freedom OF religion in a new world, not freedom FROM religion. They desperately wanted to practice their faith. They fled from countries that demanded allegiance to one faith and did not tolerate those who disagreed. Freedom of religion is promised in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution yet

these days we are seeing people insist that no religion is the only religion they will tolerate, or folks who insist you will assimilate into their religion or they will kill you. Neither one of these is particularly appealing to me, nor are they consistent with our American constitution. If you want to practice the religion of atheism (a belief in nothing is still a belief system or “religion”), Christianity, Mormonism, Islam or whatever, you are free to do so here in America. That choice should remain between you and your god or God. The requirement of a “separation between church and state” arose when state governments began establishing religions. I can’t imagine a bigger nightmare than a government directed and politically motivated religion. “Separation” simply means the government should stick to governing and leave religion alone. As a Christian, I have faith that my God is strong enough, smart enough and holy enough to draw people to Him because of Who He is. He is a God of free will and choices. Everyone in America has the constitutionally guaranteed right to choose to practice their faith without being harassed or intimidated by individuals or by government entities.

Great letter to the editor Dear Editor, The letter from Mr. David Wolosik published in the Sept. 17 issue has to be one of the best letters to the editor I have ever read. He gets its, especially in regards to rights. I would like to thank him for his reminder of Constitution Day, and of the educational requirements of our public schools. Alas, my children’s school needed a reminder as well. I dare say Mr. Wolosik is one of the dwindling number of citizens holding the fabric of our republic together. James Curry Lake Stevens, Wash.

In memory of ‘mom’
Dear Editor, I would like to give my deepest “thanks” to Ken Cumbo for his clues on “how to have a tree” planted in memory or our “Mom” (as it came to be, everyone who truly knew her heart …called her “Mom”). My thanks from my heart goes to Mr. Anonymous (Mr. A. Marchand) who did the leg work in cutting the red tape including a direct approach to our Beloved City Planner, Chris Branch. Our thanks for Mr. Walter Arnold, the school’s welder instructor, for the beautiful plaque stand and the Colville Tribe for the creation of the plaque. Our “Mom” was always welcomed with open arms whereever she went. While she did her long walks (whenever the weather provided and cooperated) she was always stopped and asked if she needed a ride. She’d always answer with her smiling eyes and usually with a small chit-chat give her, “no, thanks” and letting them know she’s out for her daily walk. At times she’d walk to Prince’s and enjoy their soup. Always stopping by the “Old Fao’s” restaurant for her cream pie, usually just to visit with friends and her waitress,

Members of the Mauel Family and friends with the tree planted in Irene Manuel’s memory. According to her son Alvin, “Irene enjoyed walking from her home up town on the side of the road her tree is planted. This was her route! The family would always tease how many people asked you if you wanted a ride today mom? She would laugh and say something like only three today. She would always tell people she just wanted to walk and she liked the exercise. She loved visiting with people along the way.” He said they suggested changing her route and she said that just wouldn’t feel right.

75 years Ago Friday, September 20 -27, 1940: According to a statement made Wednesday of this week, by Dr. S. A. Porter, he is expecting to move his family from Oroville to Omak about October 15, where he will be associated with Dr. T. J. McCain of that community. Dr. Porter came to Oroville about seven years ago from Leavenworth and for a few years, operated the Oroville General Hospital until the new hospital was finished in Tonasket. Under the direction of Don Huber, Washington State Patrolman and Dana Cappa, grade school principal, the school boy patrol at the grade school is functioning again this year. Mr. Huber states that the boys of the patrol are authorized to report motorists who do not heed regulations, who could be subject to arrest. The boys will be easily recognized with the white Sam Browne belt and special badges. First showing of the new 1941 Chevrolet will be made tomorrow at George’s Chevrolet. “Car buyers everywhere are going to get a real surprise when they see the new model” said Mr. George. An accompanied advertisement declares that it has a 3” longer wheelbase with a mighty 90 h.p. Valve-in-Head “Victory” engine and Safe-TSpecial hydraulic brakes. The new 1941 Ford line of cars will be ready for inspection at Scott Motors in Oroville Saturday according to G. M. Scott, local dealer. The running boards have virtually disappeared due to the added width of the body and the 85 HP V8 engine is still unique in the low price field. The Civilian Conservation Corps, (CCC), will enroll 1062 unemployed young men between the ages of 17 and 24 from the State of Washington between October 1 and 31. It is expected that a larger number of young men to join the CCC because enrollees will not be more liable for military service than any other men of that age as they will not be drafted into the army. Oldsmobile launches its 1941 season with six new series with both six and eight cylinder engines in each of the three lines. It also has he exclusive Hydra-Matic Drive that eliminates the clutch and shifts gears automatically. Oroville’s has a light, inexperienced football team, with only two regulars from last years starting eleven but they held the Omak squad to a scoreless tie last week. The Oroville Hornets play their second football game of the year when they tangle with the Okanogan Bulldogs, who were the county champions last year.

After earlier delays, the hearing that had been set for September 14 has been postponed until November 16 in Wenatchee. The delay was sought to allow the PUD and the Washington State Fish & Game Department further time to work out the problems of providing fish ladders around thee dam on the Similkameen River.

This has been a busy summer of fun outings for The Oroville Garden Club. On July 10, they enjoyed lunch at the Sun Cove Resort located on Wannacut Lake. In August, the club traveled to the Bonaparte Lake Resort for lunch. Ginger Miller surprised everyone by wining the Burger Bloater contest. She ate her 12 inch high Burger Bloater within the 45 minutes required to receive her lunch free. Way to go Ginger. Our Sept. 11 meeting was a field trip to the Summerland Ornamental Gardens in Summerland, BC.
Ginger Miller and Hildegard Schmidt at Sun Cove Resort. Situated in Southern Okanagan Valley of BC, Canada, the gardens have existed for almost 100 years. The 15 acre heritage botanical garden is open to the public year round. This was a perfect garden research hike for the Oroville Garden Club. Originally established in 1916 as part of the Agricultural Research Station, the Gardens were designed to help new residents, many from the U.K. and other climates, choose ornamental plants for their
gardens in the dry Okanagan weather. After several hours of enjoying the gardens, Hildegard Schmidt and Sonja Myklebust hosted lunch at Hildegard’s home in Oliver, BC. Next meeting will be on Oct. 9 at the Senior Center in Oroville. We welcome anyone who would like to join our group.

All proceeds goes to the scholarship fund. Time is running out to pay your dues if you haven’t. If you get dropped it will cost a extra $15. to re-join. On Sunday, Oct 18 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. we
25 Years Ago: September 20 - 27, 1990: “It doesn’t even seem like harvest quite yet”, said Regal Fruit Manager in Tonasket, Gerald Alumbaugh, who says that his operation will not be seriously packing apples for another week. (2015 sequel, apple harvest in already over on the earlier varieties of fruit). “It’s too soon to tell yet,” said Bud Clark, Manager of Oro Fruit in Oroville. Supper will be served at the Tonasket High School Cafeteria, for the First Annual Community Scholarship. Proceeds will go to the Tonasket Community Scholarship Fund and was organized and coordinated by Terry Mills and Kathy Michels. Prices are: Adults, $3.50 – Children 6 – 12, $2.50 and Children under six will be free. Like the Seahawks, the Oroville Hornets are now 0 and 2 after two weeks of Caribou League action. This time, the Omak Pioneers were the culprits in a 40 to 7 outcome, while the Tonasket Tigers came out smoking as Ryan Pilkinton dashed 76 yards for a TD. However, the second half belonged to the Okanogan Bulldogs, making the final score 23 -13. Results from summer exploration work on Keystone Gold, Inc.’s Crystal Butte Project, have convinced the mining companies to spend more time and money on this Buckhorn Mountain property. Keystone Gold, Inc. will receive $50,000 in option payments from mining companies during the 1990-91 fiscal year and an estimated $300,000 will be spent on exploration and development of the Crystal Butte property by next June. The Oroville Riverside Cemetery, suffering long suffering lack of funds for maintenance and operations, will run an $11,000 levy in next November’s ballot. The issue will be collected in the amount of 11 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value in approved. New students are coming from Canada to enroll in Oroville schools as B. C. School District 14 is under is under a school board lock-out. The Oroville School Board will discuss the situation before deciding whether to charge tuition fees and to set limits on the numbers of students that can register, most of whom are from Osoyoos, B. C. That’s right, you do not have to move to Hawaii or some other tropical island to grow pineapple, just ask Carmen Duncan of Tonasket. Mrs. Duncan grew a pineapple in her home over a period of five years. “I just cut the top off a pineapple I bought at the grocery store,” said Duncan. She said, “After five years I found that it could have happened a lot sooner. 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.
OROVILLE SENIOR NEWS Grateful for years of service from volunteers SUBMITTED BY JAMES GUTSCHMIDT PRESIDENT, OROVILLE SENIOR CITIZENS
Our parking lot sale was a hit, and it was generally agreed that we would repeat the sale in October, indoors. Look forward to great fun and bargains We, Seniors, express our sincere thanks for 28 years of superior emergency services by the volunteer ambulance crew. I’m speaking of a dedication, care, you know, an attitude for others that surpasses any other kind of measurement. Thank you. Next weeks Menu: Tuesday, Sloppy Joe’s; Thursday, Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole; Friday, Scrambled Eggs and Ham. My wise old dog woos me on a walk. Its cooler now. She draws me out the door, and down the trail. When we walk she is a puppy again. She lives for this. As we pass through the aspen glade she hunts. I pause, in awe. There
is not a golden yellow so stunning than standing still in an aspen grove in the fall. Crazy, an eerily inspiring ending. Fall is here. Simple, yet tremendous. And, yet, there is a deeper wisdom to learn. So, other than its beauty, what good is an aspen grove? Well, many years ago, before I knew the difference between straw and hay, I received wise advice from an “old dog” I knew. He told me that where there are aspens there is water. Valuable advice. Its so important to carefully choose, and listen, to wise counsel. I listened. Incomprehensible, beyond measure, the benefit in a dry land. Yes, “old dogs” do have value. I’m still waiting for an answer from Joel Kretz regarding Senior property tax exemption cost of living adjustments. My question is, were there adjustments made, and when? Some have said, “oh, yes.” But I’m not convinced. I have contacted various government agencies, to no avail, as yet. When I get a response I will pass it on to you all.

The Hornets threw four inter-
ceptions while the Trojans threw none, but Manson fumbled the ball four times with three losses while Oroville was just one for one. The Hornets had 32 first downs while the Trojans were held to 19. “Manson had some speed, and they caught us flat-footed in the second half of the game,” said Oroville Head Coach Tam Hutchinson. “We had a mental breakdown in the second half and started coasting, thinking we had the game wrapped up. But we rallied at the end to stop them inside the 20 yard line with just two minutes left, and we drove down
the field to their 20 yard line to preserve the win.” Hutchinson is assisted by Brad Scott. The Oroville Hornets were accompanied on the road by the Football Cheerleaders. Cheerleaders Faith Martin, Narya a Naillon, Bonnie Roley, Pie Todd, Zoe Whitaker-Jameson, Jadyn Mieirs, Lena Fuchs, Mikaela McCoy, Deja Moore and Alexis Allenby are coached by Shelly Martin and Shayne Thacker.

Hornets take Bears into OT BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
OROVILLE -Oroville hosted Brewster Thursday, Sept. 17, keeping the Bears from scoring any goals to end the first half 2-0. “In the first half of play the girls had thirteen shots on goal,” said Oroville Coach Tony Kindred. “Lindsay Koepke had six of those with two scores.” Also shooting on goal was Tori Kindred with two, Katie Egerton with two and Yessica Nemecio with two. According to Kindred, Brewster had four shots on goal the first half with no score. “In the second half of play both Oroville and Brewster collided going for a header and controversially Oroville was called for the penalty, giving Brewster their first score,” Kindred said. “Oroville would shoot on goal thirteen times including a penalty kick attempt that just missed the top left corner of the goal. Second half shots came from Koepke with five; Kindred with four, including one that hit the bar and bounced inside the line but

He and Coach Alex Sanchez have been coaching the team together the past seven years. “We got to put in a lot of girls that hadn’t played yet this season since it was a non-league game,” said Sanchez. “Not that that’s an excuse.” In the league game against the Mountain Lions, Vugteveen scored the only goal of the day on

FFA places at Waterville Fair Produce Judging team takes first
Adams County Fair Board President Anthony Daily presents the winner’s check to the Tonasket FFA Horse Judging Team, who took first place at State Friday, Setp. 18 in Othello. Team members are, left to right: Madyson Clark, Katie Henneman, Lexee Howell, Camille Wilson, Kylee Bobadilla and FFA Advisor Matt Deebach. Wilson won first place in individual competition, and Henneman took ninth place in individual competition.
TONASKET – In other FFA news, Serenity Poletti reports Tonasket took first place in Produce Judging at the Waterville Fair August 28. Nine individuals placed in the top ten, with Garrett Wilson taking first place overall. Also at the Waterville Fair, the Tonasket FFA Livestock Judging team took second place. For Tractor Driving, Tonasket took third place out of six teams. “Tractor drivers take their driving abilities to the max by driving in an intense course, getting timed. Whoever has the fastest time wins,” reported Poletti. “Not only are the members driving a tractor, they have to back a trailer up around cones without knocking down any in the process.” Reporting on the Tonasket FFA Trap team, Brenden Asmussen states the team “has started off this year well with a generous
$1,000 donation from Granite Construction. This donation will allow the trap team to purchase necessary supplies and equipment.” Asmussen, an accomplished trap shooter, said the team “has recently come off a successful season, bringing back multiple individual trophies from state,” and that Tonasket is “eager to begin another season with an older, more experienced team than last year.” 2015 Tonasket graduate Dallas Tyus, who is serving as Treasurer on the 2015-2016 State FFA Officer team had the following to say about his involvement in FFA: “FFA has completely changed who I have become, it has shown me so much about myself and the agriculture industry. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that this organization has given me to grow and serve,” he said. Tonasket has had an FFA Chapter on campus since 1936, with Matt Deebach serving as advisor since 1996.
Tonasket FFA takes first at State Camille Wilson is State Champion BY KATIE TEACHOUT KATHERINE@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM
Tonasket FFA’s Horse Judging Team took first place at State, with team member Camille Wilson named State Champion; and Katie Henneman placing ninth in State. Also on the team were Lexee Howell, Madyson Clark and Kylee Bobadilla.
Only one team from each state goes on to Nationals, held in Kentucky October 27-31.
The Tonasket team is young, with Howell being the only senior. Henneman, Clark and Wilson are sophomores; and
Bobadilla is a freshman. Tonasket competed against 17 teams made up of 77 individuals from all over the state. “It pretty awesome,” said Wilson. “Basically all of our studying took place the night before we went. In Ag II class we practiced oral reasons and judged a couple of horses, but it didn’t prepare us for a competition this intense.” “It was crazy, we all freaked out when we heard we won,” said Howell. “It didn’t really hit us at first; but now we’re like, ‘Wow, we are going to Kentucky.’ It was really close. I think our oral reasons helped a lot, and Camille doing really well by getting first in State and Katie getting ninth really helped our team.” This is Howell’s third year on the team. Henneman said it was “pretty surreal” to place ninth in State as an individual.
“We were really excited to get in the top ten, and to place first as a team. We were pretty happy,” said Henneman, who was on last year’s team that placed seventh. “We did study and prepare the week coming up, but we didn’t expect to do this well. We knew our stuff ahead of time, and were prepared going into the competition. We’re ecstatic. We had one freshman that didn’t know as much, but she grew up on a farm and put in her prior knowledge and helped us win it.” The competition was held at the Adams County Fair in Othello Friday, Sept. 18. In the Horse Evaluation Career Development Event, students evaluate and rank horses in eight different classes based on breed characteristics, conformation and performance. Students do oral reasons and take a written test. “We judge six halter classes with
different breeds and mares and geldings and place them one through four. There’s also a pleasure-riding class and an English-riding class where we judge primarily on how the horse rides,” said Wilson. “I don’t think Tonasket has ever won the horse judging contest in their history since they began in 1936,” said FFA Advisor Matt Deebach. “I’m not completely sure, but I don’t think they have. At least not since I began teaching, anyway, so that’s pretty impressive.” Deebach has been the Agriculture teacher and FFA Advisor in Tonasket since 1996. Wilson said preparation for Nationals would include a lot of studying during school hours, at home and during lunch. “We’ll take a lot of time out of our schedule to prepare. I am really nervous;
the competition is going to be crazy.” She said the team would participate in judging horse classes at the Okanogan County Fair and the fair in Yakima for extra practice. Wilson, a cheerleader and basketball player, has been participating in 4-H since sixth grade. She has been riding rodeo all season, and will show two different horses at the Okanogan County Fair this weekend. Clark said as a young team, most of them “haven’t been doing this for a long time. We did good on the oral reason; we practiced a lot on that. We are planning on going to a lot of fairs; and studying after school, during Ag class and during lunch.” “It hasn’t really hit me yet, but it will when we go to get on the plane,” said Henneman.

ROBERT ‘BOB’ JEWETT The world lost one of the most hardworking, selfless and caring men on August 28th, 2015 with the passing of Robert T. Jewett, 49, from multiple unexpected medical issues.

Karl Eric Martin
KARL ERIC MARTIN Karl Eric Martin passed away on September 8, 2015. Karl was born on November 7, 1943 in Ontario, Oregon as the second son to Carl E. and Helen (Scott) Martin. His father was serving as a Naval Flight Instructor during WWII. They returned to Seattle in the mid-1940s, and two more brothers and a sister arrived to round out the family. Karl had an enjoyable childhood of Cub and Boy Scouts, Pee Wee football, Elvis Presley, fireworks, super-fast-tall-hill sledding, and Christmas-housedecorating showmanship. His design and decoration of the Martin family home was one that the people of Seattle would put on their “must see” list during the Christmas holidays. He especially enjoyed summer camp at YMCA Camp Orkila on Orcas Island; a tradition that he passed on to his own children. As a youth, one of his favorite hobbies was building and flying model airplanes (a forerunner of today’s drones?). Early on, it was apparent that Karl had a knack for problemsolving and working on anything mechanical, especially cars. Karl graduated from Seattle’s Lincoln High School in 1962, where he made the junior varsity basketball and the varsity football teams. He was also active in Lynx Club (a service organization), the German Club, and was honored to be part of the Letterman’s Club. After high school, he went to Western Washington State College (now Western

Kinross, he had many hobbies that he enjoyed. You could spot him cruising around the mountain hunting with his Yellow Lab, Jasper, or fishing down at the lakes. He rarely left the hill but when he did, you would find him down at the golf course with all of his friends. He enjoyed spending time with Brittany hunting, watching her sports events or just driving around the mountain. Bob loved coming home to his wife every evening and relaxing after a long day. He had a great amount of respect and love for everyone he knew and it showed through the way he treated others and the way everyone treated him. No matter who it was, he always greeted them with a huge smile and a kind word. He passed away at Spokane Sacred Heart on August 28th, 2015. Preceding him in death were his mother, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 21 years Denise, his pride and joy daughter Brittany, his father Bob, brother Randy (Susan), and sister Christy (Lee). A celebration of Bob’s life will be held Saturday, October 24th,2015 at 2 p.m. at the Chesaw Rodeo Hall.
Washington University) in Bellingham, graduating in 1969 with a degree in Political Science, and a minor in Anthropology. Along the way, he married his high school sweetheart, Carol Perry. Two sons, David, born 1965, and Tod, born 1966, arrived before college graduation, which might explain why it took Karl a few years longer than most to get his degree, as he had a family to support as well. After graduation the family moved to Kirkland, Wash., while Karl managed a Standard Oil Service Station in Seattle. In 1971, Karl purchased the Standard Oil Station (Chevron) in Oroville, Wash. and moved his family to the area that they will always call HOME, especially Karl. After they were settled, Karl and Carol expanded their family to include Craig in 1972, and Polly in 1974. “Karl’s Chevron” was known to everyone in town through the 70’s. Unfortunately, the rationing of gas came with the 1976 oil crisis, and Karl had to give up his station and move on to other endeavors in order to support his family. Wanting to remain in Oroville, Karl built the Little Oasis Car Wash, and worked in a number of jobs including: the local lumber mills, and Seattle’s Todd Shipyard, becoming a certified welder and Boilermaker, working on several of the large irrigation pipeline projects in the Oroville-Tonasket area. In 1985, Karl moved back to the “wet” side of the mountains, returning to Bellingham to pursue a Master’s Degree in Anthropology with a goal of teaching at the college level. Working part-time, studying full-time, that Masters degree was finally completed in 1993, but a teaching job was elusive. Karl then changed direction and applied himself to earning an Information Technology Certification at Skagit Valley Community College in Mt. Vernon, Wash. With this certificate, Karl joined Milestone Information Systems in Bellingham for about nine years. In 2003, unfulfilled by the accounting focus of this firm, Karl looked for yet another change, and landed a position with Clallam County in Port Angeles, with their Information Technology Department. He
began this job in July 2003, and remained there until his retirement in 2010. He thoroughly enjoyed the problem solving and customer service aspects of this position. The spectrum of Karl’s hobbies and interest were wide and deep. He enjoyed hunting for many years, supplying food for his family. He was most proud of his moose, and until recently, that huge moose head could be seen on display at Swain’s General Store in Port Angeles. Karl was renowned for his diligent work ethic. He didn’t know any other way but to apply himself full bore to the job at hand, be it at work or getting firewood for his family. Giving 150% was all he knew how to do. Karl’s interest in music was wide-ranging, from Bob Seger to Elvis Presley to Bonnie Raitt to Charlotte Church and everything in-between. There must be at least a hundred, different and unique, Karl-crafted CD’s made for his loved ones. He also loved photography, kayaking, and riding his mountain bike in the hills around Port Angeles. Karl’s real passion in life was science, from Anthropology to Astronomy to Chemistry and Biology. In the last few years he filled most days in pursuit of higher knowledge. Karl was very proud of the life and successes of his children. He is survived by sons Dave Martin of Chelan, and wife Rachel, Tod Martin, of Richmond, England, and wife Alvia; Craig Martin, Chandler Ariz.; Polly MartinKasch, of Vancouver, and husband Brandon; brothers; Joel Martin and wife Lori Jenkins of Salem, Ore.; Scott (Holly) Martin of Freeland, Wash.; Brian Martin, of Seattle, Wash.; and sister, Linnea Martin of Port Angeles, Wash.; grandchildren Carolyn and Abby, Chelan, Wash.; Brooke and Colton, Chandler, Ariz; Breya and Bianca of Vancouver, Wash.; special decades-long friend, Davell Seversen of Suquamish, Wash., as well a large extended family of aunts and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Helen Martin, and granddaughter Stephanie Wilhelmi of Chelan. A memorial in Oroville will be planned for a later date, and announced by his family in advance.
Valley Hospital She was born September 21, 1928 at Madera, California to parents Fred S. Wolfe and Grace Hamilton Wolfe Pat was the second of four children, Maudie Lou, Fred Jr. and Betty. The family lived in Lodi, Calif. for many years. After high school, Pat attended college where she became proficient at shorthand and worked as a secretary. The family later moved to Keene, Texas where she met and married Don Houpt. They moved to Nebraska, his home state, and worked on a cattle ranch in the sandhills. They were offered a position working on a wheat farm in South Dakota, which they later purchased. That is where they raised their three daughters, Shirley, Nancee and Kathryn. After 42 years on the farm, they retired and moved to Wenatchee, Wash. When Pat was widowed in 2008, she moved to the Oroville area to live close to her daughter. She was an avid seamstress, and loved to make look alike dresses
for her three little girls. She also loved to crochet and quilt, and had donated many baby quilts to various charities, as well as to the Tonasket Pool fund. One of her greatest joys the last few years was watching the hummingbirds enjoying her flowers. She was preceded in death by her parents, three siblings, husband, daughter Shirley and son-in-law Randy Wheat. She is survived by two daughters, Nancee (Don) Eichberger of Cuba, Missouri, Katie Wheat of Oroville, two grandchildren, Craig Eichberger of St. Louis, Missouri, Laura (Chad) Kempfer of Valmeyer, Illinois and two great-grandchildren, Tyler and Jake Kempfer, as well as several nieces and nephews. At her request, there will be no services and she will be laid to rest with her husband and daughter in Nebraska. Bergh Funeral Service and Crematory in care of arrangements.

WILLIAM ‘BILL’ MICHAEL MANNATT William “Bill” Michael Mannatt, beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many was born in Los Angeles, California on December 10th, 1948. Bill later migrated to
Boulder, Colorado, where he worked as a master modelmaker. He retired to Oroville, Washington and was a valued employee of the Omak Home Depot. Despite having polio at the age of two, he overcame his disability to become an avid sportsman, archer and lover of falconry. In his early years, he spent a great deal of time hunting, fishing and hiking throughout the High Sierras of California and later in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. With his hunting dogs, he explored much of the West with great curiosity, deep appreciation and a keen understanding of nature. He was also a champion marksman; competing nationally in sporting clays, trap and skeet and held championship titles in Colorado, Nebraska and New Mexico, in addition to being Claythorne A Class World Champion in 2003. In his retirement years, he enjoyed touring the beautiful mountains and valleys of the Pacific Northwest on his beloved Harley-Davidson. He was a happy man the day he left us, for

friends or community members when they were in need. His positive and humorous attitude along with his willingness to be of help to anyone gained him an abundance of respect from everyone who knew him. Bob was born at Spokane Sacred Heart on May 24th, 1966. He graduated from Mead High School and then furthered his education at Whitworth University, graduating in 1988 with a degree in geology. As many already knew, Bob was an avid rock hound. After college he was a geologist for Ramrod Gold and soon after, he began running his own Assay lab in Republic with his business partner, Jim Gubler. In 1993 he met the love of his life, Denise, and on May 21st, 1994 they got married and started their new life together in Chesaw. A year later, they were blessed with a little daughter, Brittany. Around the same time, he started his own decorative rock business with his business partner and good friend, Greg Prescott. With his business and rock quarry being so close to home, it made it much easier to be with his new family. Though he was very busy and hard at work between his own business and Water Sampling for
