Fire burns 7,700 acres Cause of blaze still under investigation; no injuries reported FROM STAFF REPORTS

Hearing set for Microsoft expansion

A fire that began shortly after noon on Friday, Sept. 10 in the Baird Springs area threatened several homes and scorched about 7,700 acres before it was contained on Monday. The Baird Springs Fire grew rapidly as high winds spread the flames over the dry natural vegetation and wheat stubble of the area. By Friday afternoon a state of emergency was declared for the area and a statewide fire mobilization was announced. Firefighters from across the state, including four firefighting helicopters, responded to the area. Five residents in the area of Martin Road NW from Road T

NW to Road Q NW were told to prepare to evacuate from the area, but the firefighters were able to protect the homes and no structures were damaged in the blaze, said fire spokeswoman Kay McKellar. Many of the residents in the area plowed firebreaks along their property and had sprinklers running to help prevent the fire from spreading into residential areas. Smoke from the fires prompted the closing of Highway 28 for a short time on Friday evening, as well as the closure of Baird Springs Road and Road T. See Fire page A8

Farmer-Consumer Awareness Days

FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Washington State Department of Ecology is inviting the public to comment on a proposed notice of construction permit for the expansion of the Microsoft Columbia Data Center in Quincy. On Aug. 20, Ecology director Ted Sturdevant approved the permit to expand. A public hearing is scheduled to be held Tuesday, Sept. 28, in the council chambers at the Quincy City Hall. Pre-hearing presentations and discussion will begin at 5: 30 p.m., followed by the hearing at 7 p.m. The hearing will continue until everyone who wants to testify has had the opportunity to do so. The notice is a formal approval document that allows the company to install 13 new backup generators for use during power failures to support the facilityʼs data servers. The generators are powered by diesel engines. Diesel engine exhaust particulate is a toxic air pollutant. Because of this, Ecology required a thorough evaluation of the health risks posed by the expansion project. This evaluation is called a third-tier review of the health impact assessment, and the director of Ecology must approve it before the generators are installed. The public also may comment in writing to Ecology until Oct. 4, 2010. Documents about the permit and the health assessment are available for review at the Department of Ecology, Eastern Regional Office, Air Quality Program, 4601 N. Monroe St., Spokane, WA, or contact Greg Flibbert at 509-329-3452. They also are available at the City of Quincy and on Ecologyʼs website: ecy.wa.gov/programs/air/ Tier1/Tier2_final.html. Commentsmaybesubmitted to Gregory Flibbert, Air Quality Program, Department of Ecology, Eastern Regional Office, 4601 N. Monroe St., Spokane, WA 99205-1295, or by email to gfli461@ecy.wa.gov. Ecology will review and respond to all comments. The documents could be amended based on the comments Ecology receives.

Pioneer Church dedicated with ‘grace’ BY DOUG FLANAGAN

reporter@qvpr.com

During Tuesdayʼs dedication ceremony of Quincyʼs Pioneer Church, Harriet Weber, co-chair of the recently completed church restoration project, asked the attending crowd to sing “Amazing Grace.” She wanted the group to sing the song without any accompaniment. “The ceiling of the building provides an acoustical

miracle,” Weber said. “Donʼt be shy. Everybodyʼs going to have to pull their own weight.” A few seconds later, the 60 or so people in the crowd began to sing, and the melodic strains filled the room with a boisterous cacophony of sound. After the song was over, Weber stood back up in front of the crowd with a tear in her eye. “What we just experienced,” she said, “is one of the reasons weʼre so glad we undertook this project.” The Pioneer Church was built in 1904 on the cor-

ner of 2nd Avenue and B Street SW as a community church. In 1907, it was incorporated as a German Lutheran church. When a new, larger building was needed for the Lutheran congregation, the church was sold. It was used by several different churches before it was sold into private ownership. In 2007, the Pioneer Church was repurchased by St. Paul Lutheran Church and given back to the people of See Church page A8

Cedergreen remembered that instance during one day last summer, when he and some friends were in Prosser to taste some wines.

County lifts burn ban

Due to the cooler temperatures and moisture accompanying early fall weather and a reduction in the overall fire hazard, the Grant County board of commissioners and the county fire marshal announced last week that the county-wide burn ban is being lifted, effective immediately. Although the ban is lifted, the use of burn barrels is strictly prohibited. In addition, only natural vegetation may be burned (no household garbage). For more information, call 754-2011, ext. 428.

Tammara Green is the Quincy Valley Post-Registerʼs newest staff reporter. The PostRegister recently sat down with Green to discuss her writing background and why she doesnʼt miss living on the west side of the state. PR: So is this your first writing job? TG: No, I worked for a year and a half at the South County Sun in Royal City, reporting and writing. I came to Quincy about four years ago. Since then Iʼve been working at the

Quincy School District and at Akins Harvest Foods. QVPR: What do you do for the school district? TG: Iʼm a para-educator at Pioneer Elementary. I work in the math lab and with reading classes. QVPR: Where did you grow up? TG: Renton. QVPR: What did you do after you graduated from high school? TG: When I was in high school, I knew I wanted to write. I went to Central Washington University, and I spent time working on an English major. I took creative

from the west side, how have you settled down in Quincy? Do you like it here? TG: I love it. Itʼs like culture shock when I go back home to visit. My driving skills go out the window, and I donʼt deal well with traffic or big crowds. Itʼs different. Iʼve adjusted to the quieter, slower pace of life. Iʼm more relaxed. I lived in downtown Seattle, and the big-city feel is like youʼre running on caffeine all day. You have to be alert, look around, know where youʼre at. Itʼs not better or worse, just different. Thereʼs more things to do in a big city, but here you have more time to do things.

Watsons to celebrate 60th wedding anniversary

Foundation looking for holiday items

Twenty-seven Grant County motorists were stopped and arrested for driving under the influence, and statewide law enforcement officers arrested 2,672 drivers for DUI during the Drive Hammered, Get Nailed enforcement campaign conducted from Aug. 12 to Sept. 6. In Grant County, the Moses Lake, Royal City and Warden police departments, the Grant County Sheriffʼs Office and the Washington State Patrol participated in the extra emphasis patrols, with the support of the Central Basin Traffic Safety Task Force. The extra patrols were funded by a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. For additional information about the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, visit wtsc.wa.gov

I like writing a lot of different kinds of stories. I just like writing. QVPR: So youʼd say youʼre a naturally creative person? TG: Probably. Iʼve had leanings that way ever since I was growing up. I was the youngest of eight children, so I had to learn how to occupy myself at times. (Finding creative outlets) was it for me. QVPR: Being originally

VALLEY RECORDS OBITUARIES & MEMORIALS Mary Ellen Dellinger

Mary Ellen (Alvord) Dellinger, 77, of Othello, was received into the hands of her Lord Jesus on Sept. 18, 2010 after a short battle with cancer. Mary Ellen, the oldest of eight children, was born Aug. 13, 1933 to William and Florence (Otis) Alvord in LaConner. She attended schools in LaConner, graduating in 1951. Mary Ellen attended Western Washington College, studying nursing until she met Walter Dellinger. They were married on Oct. 17, 1953, in Allen. Together, they raised four children. In 1972, the family moved from Skagit Valley to Othello, where they resided until 1987, when they moved to Quincy. Mary Ellenʼs husband, Walter, died in 2004. She continued to reside in Quincy until poor health required her to move back to Othello to be closer to her daughters. Mary Ellen was a member of the Quincy Southern Baptist Church. Family was very important to her. She looked forward to hearing about the antics of her great-grandchildren and was especially excited about the addition of three new little ones this year, Noelle, Julian and Rose, expected December, 2010. She is survived by her children, Sharon (Don)

10 years ago September 21, 2000 Maxine Tjoelker of Quincy got a new heart in Seattle in 1993. With her energy revived, she began sewing quilts for patients who face a similar ordeal- children from all over the Northwest who come to Children's Hospital for treatment. The Lady Jacks picked up their first win of the season Tuesday with a 5-3 victory over league opponent Royal. The win bumps Quincy to 1-2 against Central Washington Athletic Conference teams. 20 years ago September 27, 1990 Dana Dal Porto of Quincy and Jeanne Gimlin of Ephrata took top honors in the Adams East Museum and

Art Centerʼs first juried art show. Cynthia Krieble, professor of art at Central Washington University, juried the exhibit. 30 years ago September 25, 1980 Quincy firemen were called out Tuesday afternoon to a fire on a bridge at the Winchester Waterway and Road 9 which was started accidentally by a construction crew working on the bridge. 40 years ago September 24, 1970 The Reverend Glen Norman was one of 300 ministers selected to go to Vietnam and see first-hand what is happening there. 50 years ago September 29, 1960 A new bus route has

been added to the Quincy School District transportation system. There are now 13 routes in operation. The new route is from four miles south of George into town. It was necessary to put on this additional route to relieve the overloaded conditions in the three buses at the south end of the school district, school officials explained. 60 years ago September 22, 1950 The mighty Columbia, servant of man, and giver of power, showed its less benevolent mood a few days ago by taking the life of one man and coming within a hairsbreadth of taking two more.

because they did a great job. And, finally, on Tuesday, I was able to attend the dedication ceremony for the old German Lutheran Church, which was moved to the Reiman-Simmons House site and renovated. The inside of the church has been faithfully recreated. The gorgeous pressed tin ceiling and walls have been fully repaired. The hardwood floors have a gorgeous luster and the beautiful windows fill the sanctuary with Heaven’s light. The building, originally constructed in 1904 by Quincy’s earliest pioneers, is a wonderful tribute to their faith and culture. And now, thanks to the efforts of the many community members and state officials, the church will serve even more generations of Quincy residents. As I look back on the past week, I am so thankful for the opportunity to live in a community that makes wonderful things like the balloon festival, FCAD and church restoration happen.

Correspondence Thanks for great fire response

To the Grant County Fire District No. 3, your decision-making in the first stage of the Baird Springs Fire on Sept. 10 saved many acres of land and homes from potentially being destroyed. We have people in charge that can make “good” decisions quickly. A “big thanks” to all firefighters both local and state and our neighbors for a united response effort. Great job! — Keevin, Karen and Austin Schulz

For Lind

I’m glad the challenge to Albert Lin being a legal voter in Grant County has been resolved in his favor! I can’t recall this happening in the past. It’s a shame it could not be decided before the primary election, since some voters might have thought Lin was not qualified to hold an office in Grant County; that’s not the way we want to elect folks to office. Albert Lin is the only voter in Grant County to be challenged! The challenge was brought by a local businessman, assisted by two attorneys, a private investigator, and the Grant County Prosecuting Attorney. The canvassing board made their findings of fact August 31. A PDC Complaint had been filed on

this voter challenge, “PDC Complaint Against Derek A. Lee 2010 Campaign for Grant County Prosecutor” Filed: August 20, 2010.” The PDC summarized the participation of those who brought the complaint and finds “This is strong evidence that Lee coordinated participation in the Voter challenge for the purposes of Lee’s own campaign for Prosecutor, and to oppose Albert Lin.” The PDC complaint claims the Voter Challenge is a Lee Campaign donation. ”This abuse of the law is an attempt to rook an election by eliminating any threat of voter involvement in the election. Whether that is ethical, remains to be seen, especially in consideration of the numerous complaints that have led to the pending Washington State Bar Association of Derek A. Lee for professional misconduct.” The PDC Complaint Conclusion: “It seems clear that Dave Canfield, Nick Wallace, and Derek Lee himself, have worked toward a voter challenge with the sole intent of benefitting the Derek A. Lee Prosecutorial campaign in Grant County. The voter challenge is an attempt to grab a default election win, by disqualifying the only candidate opposing the incumbent Prosecutor, Albert Lin. These contributions should have been reported as in-kind contributions to the Lee campaign, for the benefit of the Lee campaign, and in light of the proven,

direct involvement of Lee in this Voter challenge.” Now it’s time to settle down and just have the election. Albert Lin has earned my respect and will have my vote! — Jim Weitzel, Ephrata

For Walker

The Grant County PUD plays a vital role in attracting new business to the area. Dale’s years of interaction with the PUD and his agricultural business background have given him a great understanding and the expertise to lead our county to a successful future. Dale is a lifelong resident of Grant County and businessman and farmer. He served our country in the US Army, attended Big Bend Community College and then returned to farming. He and his wife Cheryl married 36 years ago, and raised three sons and a daughter on their farm in Moses Lake. Dale has primarily earned his living in agriculture, as a farmer, owner of a seed company, and in research. Dale Walker is very passionate about the PUD and has shown his commitment by attending many sessions and studying the issues at hand. I urge the voters of Grant County to cast their ballot for Dale Walker Grant County PUD Commissioner Position #2 – Non Partisan. — Pete Romano

on the local landscape, from layers of basalt that were pressed down one on top of the other, columns of basalt that were sucked out from the cliff walls by the force of the water, to the wave basalt formations, which were believed to have been created from sideways force, pushing softer, cooling basalt over in a different direction. Kenʼs words rang true in my mind, and to quote, “I guarantee that after this trip you will never look at a wall of basalt the same way again.” If you are a geology expert, or someone who is just interested in geology, you can check out a meeting of the Erratics. The group meets the second Tuesday of every month. The next meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 12. For more information, call the Ice Age Flood Institute at 943-9000 or visit iafi.org.

On the final leg of the trip, we pulled our weary, yet willing souls off the bus to see the magnificent “Feathers” formation, which are the largest basalt columns in the world. Climbers were busy at work, scaling the smooth, steep cliffs. I likened it to trying to climb a 100-foot refrigerator. As far as the eye could see, on both tours, we saw evidence of natureʼs power

masterʼs degree in geology, but he doesnʼt. Everything he learned came from going on tours led by geologists, and many, many trips. “I never stand up on an apple box and say I know all things,” said Lacy. “Iʼm always learning.” He is also a founding member of the local geological society called the Erratics, which is a geological term for rocks that are ripped from their natural location and deposited elsewhere by glaciers. He helped found the Erratics in 2000, and he is also a member of the Ice Age Floods Institute. Ken retired from his job at a drug company, and later began to take over the tours for former geology tour guide Charlie Mason. “I was always interested in geology,” Lacy said, “but I never got the chance to work in the field.” Ken took us by Rock Island to show us the other side of the river, where the land that began sliding millions of years ago is still slowly

coming down. We then entered into Moses Coulee, which some people call the Palisades, a place I had never been. We passed by the Chief Moses council cave, and went all the way in past the Billingsley ranch to see the three devils landforms. Ken said the three devils were called that because the Native Americans would watch people hoisting their livestock and wagons up and over the cliffs, and hear them yelling out swear words. They said it turned the people into devils. I could not, with any stretch of the imagination, conceive of having to adapt and struggle with the task of traveling over this land without roads or cars. In fact, Ken informed us that Trinidad used to be bigger than Quincy, and that people used to stop over on their way to Wenatchee. The only way to get there was over the Waterville plateau. It was a rough trip, and since it could not be done late in the day, people would stay at the hotel in Trinidad.

or five years, Ken Lacy has run the geological tours of the Quincy Valley, and for three of them I have wanted to join him on those tours. Last Saturday, Quincyʼs Farmer-Consumer Awareness Day, I packed up my necessaries and headed for the bus line outside of Quincy High School. Lacy gathered everyone together for his geology briefing. I was amazed to find out that there was more than one ice age flood that helped carve out this valley. In fact, it is estimated that there were more than 100 floods over the period of 3,000 years. The waters from these floods were estimated to have been 100 miles wide and 200 miles deep. The total volume of flow from the waters was more than Lake Ontario and Lake Erie combined. The first flood that came from the glacier-created Lake Missoula became the largest flow of water anywhere at any time in the history of the world. There were only 12 or so passengers on the first tour of the Rock Island landslide and the Lower Moses Coulee, but it was well worth the trip. People came from as far away as Oregon to join the tour. “The geology here is amazing,” said Candy Seely of Clatskanie, Ore. I was so impressed that I also went on the second of two geology trips that were offered. Among other things, I learned the meaning of the word coulee, which is French for a canyon with a flat bottom and straight vertical rock walls, of which there are many here in the Quincy Valley. Kenʼs lectures were extremely interesting, and he offered a wealth of information on the subject of our local geological forms, the likes of which I have never seen or heard. It was astounding to imagine the power of Lake Missoula violently rushing through this tranquil valley, carving deeply into the land, and changing everything in its path from Montana to the Pacific Ocean. Ken relished his time talking geology, and even though some of it went over my head, I found it fascinating. From listening to him, I thought he must have a

FCAD geology tours provide insight into creation of Quincy Valley Though I had no time to eat lunch, I found myself at 10 a.m. waiting for the second tour. On this tour there were many highlights. The purpose of the tour was to show how the ice age floodwaters emptied out of the Quincy Basin. Ken titled this tour “The Great Escape.” He showed how there were five different coulees created where the water emptied out. He explained how the water from the Upper Crab Creek filled the Quincy Valley with 80 to 90 feet of water. We then stood down below Crescent Bar, and saw the cataracts, which are the cliffs around that were formed by water cascading down over the surface. We were the only group to have ever been allowed onto the property of David Bishopʼs ranch to see the cataracts and a kolk formation, which was formed by whirlpools of

Choir teacher: ‘We exceeded our expectations’ BY CHUCK ALLEN

editor@qvpr.com

It was like going back in time for Stuart Hunt last weekend as he met former students and friends during a reunion of the members of the Quincy High School Girls Select Choir, which took second place at the prestigious International Youth and Music Festival in Vienna, Austria in 1990. “Quincy taught me the value of people and how unimportant other things are,” Hunt said during an interview on Saturday. “It helped me see how things work and donʼt work and taught me to find answers.” Hunt arrived in Quincy to teach vocal music in the fall of 1971 as new a graduate from the University of Washington. “I didnʼt know where Quincy was on the map,” Hunt said. “I didnʼt think I had been sent here, I thought I had been sentenced. There were no trees! It was so different than what I was used to.” After a few years of figuring

out how to fit in at Quincy, Hunt realized he needed to change his approach. “I woke up and realized that people didnʼt know me,” Hunt said. “I had to get to know them. I got to know the families and their sons and daughters and brothers and sisters and that made all the difference.” Soon Hunt was having success as the middle school and high school vocal instructor. His high school choir, Spectrum, earned a number of awards during competitions. In 1986, he decided to form a girls select choir that rehearsed in the wrestling room. “I picked girls not solely based on their vocal ability, but on their attitudes and personalities,” Hunt said. In a few years, the choir gained regional acclaim and eventually received the invitation to perform at the Austrian festival. Hunt, the girls, family, friends and community members worked to raise the $87,000 needed to send the 26-

No connection in whooping cough cases FROM STAFF REPORTS

Health officials in Grant County say they still have found no connection linking four confirmed cases of whooping cough, also known as pertussis. The four cases are from “various communities” in the county, said Theresa Fuller, public information officer for the Grant County Health District. She said officials

are still waiting for tests to determine if a fifth sick child has pertussis. The new cases of whooping cough are the latest in a scattered outbreak that killed one infant Aug. 24. Officials in Grant County issued a whooping cough health alert to hospitals and walk-in clinics last Friday following investigation of a fourth — and perhaps fifth — case.

left Quincy shortly after the Vienna trip to teach at MarysvillePilchuck High School. “It had been 20 years since I had seen many of them. Itʼs amazing how little they had changed. “They and the community can be proud of what they accomplished. It was a critical time for all of them and many said it was the experience of a lifetime. It was something that we didnʼt do alone; it took the whole community to make it possible. We all exceeded our expectations, took risks and it paid off.” Hunt has retired as a fulltime music instructor. He has worked as a substitute music teacher for a number of years and as a private music instructor. He and his wife, Agi, have four children. They live in community of Warm Beach near Stanwood. During the reunion, there was talk of having another event on the 25th anniversary of the choirʼs trip to Europe, Hunt said.

Fire: Started on Friday afternoon Continued from front page Much of the blaze was contained by Saturday morning as the crews responding from around the state were able to spell local firefighters during the mop-up effort. By Monday, McKellar said the blaze was 90-percent contained.

She said the weather cooperated in the firefighting efforts. “Everything stayed pretty copacetic last night,” McKellar said on Monday. “No change in weather or storms.” The fire was estimated to have burned 9,400 acres on Saturday, but after more

accurate mapping it was determined the fire burned a smaller area of about 7,700 acres. The cause of the fire is being investigated. The Wenatchee World contributed to this story.

Church: Open Continued from front page Quincy. The Lutheran church had it moved to its new location at the Reiman-Simmons historical site. Since then, restoration has been in full operation. New siding has replaced damaged or broken siding. Electricity and heating have been installed. New windows have been put in place. Inside, the tin ceiling has been repaired. Tin panels that once covered the walls of the church have been installed in the front. The floor has been redone. The walls have been painted. And new pews, replicas of the originals, have been made and installed. Tuesdayʼs ceremony celebrated the completion of the Washington State Heritage Capital Funds grant process and recognized all those who made the restoration project possible. Project co-chair and historical society vice president Gar Pilliar opened the event with a welcoming address. “This is a big day for the historical society,” he said. “This is the culmination of 10, 11 years of work. Weʼre quite proud of this place.” After an invocation delivered by pastor Jess Slusher, Weber, the historical societyʼs president, then praised the efforts of Pilliar. “Gar persevered like the pioneers of old,” she said. “Itʼs been his leadership that has seen this project through to completion.” Sen. Janeå Holmquist,

the ceremonyʼs first speaker, has supported the restoration project from its beginning, Weber said. “Weʼre here today because the efforts of the community made this possible,” Holmquist said. “This is a good example of what community partnerships, hard work and the grace of God can accomplish.” Quincy mayor Jim Hemberry spoke next. “This place can share pieces of the past and activities of the present. The past serves as a reminder of where we came from and how we got to where weʼre at today,” he said. “Weʼll continue to build the history of this wonderful city.” Gary Schalliol of the Washington State Historical Society then spoke about his involvement with the project. After the Riverfront String Quartet played ʻSimple Gifts,ʼ Kaye Baumgartner of the Lutheran church told about the history of the building, and after the ʻAmazing Graceʼ performance, Weber told about the restoration project. “After a while, it had a life of its own,” she said. “Sometimes you know things are right by watching how they unfold. Thatʼs what it was like with this project.” With that, Weberʼs son, Tim, rang the church bell 11 times, once for each decade that the church has been in existence, effectively ending the ceremony.

winemaking region, so why couldnʼt Quincy have a brewery as well?” he said. “Wine and beer complement each other; theyʼre not in competition, and the Quincy area didnʼt have a brewery.” Soon after, Cedergreen was visiting The Grape wine bar in Quincy and started talking with local resident Eric Streich about the possibility of opening a brewery in Quincy. They liked the idea, but immediately identified a big obstacle. “Neither of us had brewed a drop of beer in our lives,” Streich said. Ron Stadig, the owner of The Grape, told Cedergreen and Streich to get in touch with local resident Mike Silk, who Stadig knew had been brewing beer from his home for many years. Stadig arranged for Silk, Streich and Cedergreen to sit down together one night and talk, and out of that conversation came the decision to start an endeavor that hit its first big milestone moment last Saturday, as Ancient Lakes Brewing Company poured samples of three of its beers to patrons at the balloon festival at Parties on the Green. “We felt that it went real well,” Streich said. “We had a good crowd, and plenty of people came to our booth. The local people liked the idea of local beer.” Now, Cedergreen, Streich, the business partners, and Silk, the brewer, will move ahead with the goal of making their product accessible and the brand name familiar with consumers. The Grape will begin serving multiple varieties of Ancient Lakes brew within the next couple of weeks. “We thought that it just made sense that Ron gets to carry it first,” Silk said. “Weʼll rotate through them

and expand out from there. Weʼll start small. Weʼll hopefully do local, talk to the local people, give them a tasting and see if they want to carry it. Then weʼll expand out if we can to Ephrata, Moses Lake, Wenatchee and see if we can keep up with that.” Streich is focusing on the marketing efforts, and he hopes that his job wonʼt be hard. “Iʼm a glass-is-half-full guy, and I think if Mike can make a good product, then it can sell itself,” he said. “If it gets to the point where itʼs big enough where we can go into Seattle and Spokane, it might be a little tougher, but locally I think it will be a fairly easy sell.” Cedergreen, a longtime agricultural businessman, has been visiting other breweries up and down the West Coast in an attempt to acquire knowledge to pass along to Ancient Lakes. “I feel that the products that we have are as good as anything that Iʼve tasted when youʼre talking about craft beers,” he said. “But we are small. I donʼt even call us a microbrewery yet; weʼre more of a nanobrewery. Quincy is not a huge market, but the town is a big supporter of local businesses like this. If we develop a good reputation for products that people can enjoy, we can branch out from here. The purpose here is to turn out an adult beverage that people can enjoy responsibly. And Mike is an absolute artisan at his craft. He really is a master.” The partners agree that the brewery will be kept small for now. Of course, they can dream of how big it might get and what they can do to expand operations at a later date, but thatʼs not the primary goal right now.

those who have tried them, but the brewer realizes that he has to consider more factors now that heʼs producing beer for a large audience. “It makes you a little nervous, though, because now youʼre not brewing for you. Youʼre brewing for what (other peopleʼs) tastes are,” he said. “Everyoneʼs palate is different. I think you have to listen to the community and brew what they want to drink versus being stubborn about it and saying, ʻHereʼs what I make, like it or not.ʼ There are those out there, but Iʼd rather make it for people to enjoy.” Ancient Lakes beer will also be available for retail sale out of the brewery in Silkʼs garage. The partners are optimistic that it very well could grow out of there eventually, though. “Thereʼs not anything like this in this area,” Streich said. “I think we have to be creative with the names of the beer and the flavors. I told Mike at the balloon fest that it would be fun to go completely different with a flavor and go with something that nobody has ever heard of. I think itʼs a matter of getting the product out there and hitting the right venues and the right events. I hope this can go as far as we want to take it.”

Kaye Baumgartner speaks during Tuesday’s dedication ceremony for Quincy’s Pioneer Church.

“Because of our capacity, we canʼt go right out there and set everybody up,” Streich said. “The challenge is to supply enough beer without overextending ourselves. We donʼt want to over-promise and under-deliver. Weʼre on a learning curve about how much we can produce and keep in the cooler.” Silk has been homebrewing ever since he moved to Quincy from California in 1998. “In the 1980s, when craft beer was just starting (to gain popularity), I tasted a couple of ales that just blew me away,” he said. “They had that flavor of wine, that complexity. I was like, ʻI want to try that.ʼ (I started with) a 5-gallon batch kit. Itʼs not rocket science.The kits are set up (as) extract, so you just throw stuff together and follow the recipe. Itʼs like making stew. You just gotta watch it and take care of it.” Currently, Ancient Lakes is serving seven “every-day” beers, each branded with a unique moniker: Quincy Gold, Silk Pale, Antler Dance Amber, I-90 IPA, Smalltown Brown, Potholes Porter, and Steamboat Stout. The gold, IPA and porter were for sale at the balloon fest. Silkʼs beers have received a positive response from

The Quincy volleyball team went 1-1 on their Highway 17 non-league challenge this past week. They defeated Warden last Thursday in five games, but lost to Othello in four games.

The Lady Jacks were unable run their win streak to three matches, but did force four games against visiting Othello on Tuesday. The Lady Jacks offense was silent in their first contest against a 2A opponent. “Had a difficult time putting the ball away tonight and made too many errors,” coach Pam Young said. “I think we were dealing with some first home game nerves and they got down on themselves.” Janna Hodges had 15 assists and two kills, while Devyn Hinkins added four kills and Sierra Hyer had three aces and three kills.

The Lady Jacks volleyball team defeated Warden last Thursday. Quincy won the second, fourth and fifth games for their second victory of the season. The main threats on offense were seniors Sierra Hyer and Devyn Hinkins. Hyer, an outside hitter, put up 10 kills and three aces, while middle blocker Devyn Hinkins added eight kills and three blocks. “It was fun to see other people step it up, because we don’t have aces,” Young said

On defense, Cassidee Davis dominated the inside with nine blocks and added four kills. The Lady Jacks also had back help from defensive specialists Madison Petersen and Olivia Arizmendi, who accounted for 38 digs combined. “It was a tough battle, we played inconsistent at times and Warden kept at us, but we were able to finish it,” Young said.

Improvement seen in loss BY KURTIS J. WOOD

sports@qvpr.com

The Lady Jacks took one step forward on Tuesday in a shootout loss to Selah. Instead of history repeating itself, such as last year’s 7-0 and 5-0 losses to the Lady Vikings, Quincy took the two-time defending CWAC North champions to a shootout. Selah ended up winning the non-league contest 4-3 on the strength of a 3-2 shootout. “The score sheet shows a loss, but all the girls on the Quincy bus saw victory,” coach Matthew Kimmel said. “This was the first time in school history we had a lead against Selah. We were even at halftime, ahead again then tied and behind with short time on the clock.” The Lady Jacks were the first to score. Kimberly Avalos assisted Kala Brindle in the 24th minute, but Selah’s Mary Jones knocked in the equalizer in the 25th for a 1-1 tie. The score remained the same until the second half. Brindle scored again off an assist by Suzy Hernandez in the 62nd minute. The lead lasted until Jones buried two more shots in the 67th and 74th minutes. The Lady Jacks had six minutes to knot the game at 3-all and Brindle assisted a last second shot by Kylie Wil-

liamson in the 80th minute to force overtime. “The efforts of Kylie Williamson cannot be ignored,” Kimmel said. “She kept the team in the game with a last minute run to the corner, putting the ball in the net at a difficult angle, keeping our chances alive.” The two teams went scoreless in a pair of overtime periods, which sent the game to a shootout and the home team won after a 3-2 advantage. “The Lady Jacks did not quit despite the availability of only two subs for the game. The defense did an amazing job of holding and frustrating the Selah attack,” Kimmel said. “We are improving and believe we will compete for a play-off spot come the end of October.”

Senior Adrian Diaz once again was in a world all by himself. He and the rest of the Quincy High School cross country team used the annual Farmer-Consumer Awareness Day Farm to Market Fun run as a time trial. Diaz was the top finisher among all 5K runners with a time of 16 minutes, two seconds. His closest competitor was his coach, John Heikkila. Heikkila clocked in at 17:45. For the girls, freshman Anne Francis again was the teams top runner with a time of 21:38. While the coach may have bested most of his team, he only had accolades for their efforts last Saturday. “I’m pleased with everybody,” Heikkila said. “In the past I had people walking half of it. At least I know early in the season all this hard work is paying off. But everyone is making an effort. A good effort.” A group of runners tried their best to pack behind Heikkila and several finished their race within a minute of their coach. Manny Lopez was third overall at 18:05 and he was followed by Salvado Lopez (18:28), Gabriel Martinez (18:49), Saul Iniguez (19: 15), Christian Perez (19:23) and Gerardo Guzman (19:30). “If you look at second through seventh, they tried to stay with me,” Heikkila said. Francis finished eight seconds faster than the next finisher and 50 seconds ahead of her closest teammate - Jazmine Perez (22:28). But fellow freshman Alejandra Diaz (22: 52) caught the attention of Heikkila with her fifth place finish among all the female runners. “Little Alejandra Diaz, she’s in the mix now,” Heikkila said. Sarah Martinez (23:01), Marinda Talley (25:55), Katia Perez (26:03) and Maira Hernandez (27:24) round the top seven for the Lady Jacks. “It’s what I expected,” Heikkila said. “But I do have 29 kids up and running.”

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Othello came into Quincy wounded from their loss to Connell in week one of the high school sports season, while the Jacks came in fresh off of a trouncing of neighboring Ephrata. But the Huskies bared their teeth and used the Jacks

as a proverbial rag doll in a 61-0 rout last Friday night. Othello (1-1) rolled up 521 yards to Quincy’s (1-1) 134 yards. The potent Quincy offense from last week was grounded by the Huskies. Jackson Hodges (10-29-3129) had nine carries for minus 24 yards and the

Soccer: Avalos knocks in insurance goal continued from page B1

Quincy defeats Warden

Sophomore Kala Brindle starred in the Lady Jacks' soccer home opener by recording her first high school hat trick. The midfielder’s trio of goals spanned both halves and included a pair of lengthy second half shots and propelled Quincy to a 4-1 victory over Warden. The win was needed after the squad was on the wrong side of a pair of lopsided losses to open the season. “The defense and midfield learned how to counter attack today,” Kimmel said. This game’s first goal came in the fifth minute. After the Cougar keeper hesitated, Hernandez passed the ball to Brindle who converted on a shot to the upper right hand corner of the net. “She stuttered and I thought it would be like my PKs and miss,” Brindle said. “But it came off my foot well and was on frame.” Quincy took a 1-0 lead. The Cougars equalizer came in the 39th minute after a three shot flurry by Tanya Gonzalez. Her first two attempts were blocked by Jackrabbit keeper Jenna Arnall, but her third hit the mark to send the the game into halftime knotted at 1-all. Just moments into the second half, center-mid Cheyenne Hyer went to down with an injury. This left the Quincy girls scrambling. Hyer does all the corners and free kicks. “When Cheyenne went down, we looked scared and not tenacious,” Kimmel said. The Lady Jacks found a way to survive after Brindle knocked in a 20-yard direct kick to the upper right hand corner of the net. Her goal in the 51st minute gave Quincy a 2-1 lead. “Normally I don’t take kicks,” she said. It took her 19 minutes later to score on a second 20-yard shot in the 70th minute. Her final goal completed the hat trick and

This allowed Reynolds to play forward and she nearly scored in the 78th minute. She took an extreme angle shot with the keeper in chase. Just before the ball was about to cross the goal line teammate Kimbery Avalos was forced to kick it in before the defense made the save. The Lady Jacks grabbed a 4-1 lead as

time expired. “It was a better second half,” Kimmel said. "I asked for three goals in the half and I got three goals in the second half.
