Hundreds of people braved high wind and rain to attend the 2014 Confluence celebration in downtown Reedsport. Part of the festival was held in a tent just outside the Reedsport Community Center, where there was also food, vendors and music.

SALEM — Gov. John Kitzhaber says he’ll sign a bill that would allow Oregon schools to retain Native American mascots under certain conditions after state lawmakers addressed concerns that led him to veto a similar measure a year ago. The measure, approved unanimously in the state Senate on Friday, would loosen the Board of Education’s 2012 ban on depicting Native American mascots in their nicknames and imagery. “I’m pleased that everyone stayed at the table and worked toward a bipartisan compromise that will increase awareness, respect, and communication between tribes and neighboring communities,” Kitzhaber said in a statement. His spokeswoman, Rachel Wray, said he’ll sign the bill if it clears the House without changes. Schools would be allowed to keep Native American mascots under certain conditions, including the approval of an appropriate tribe and the Board of Education. The state Board of Education in

May 2012 approved a rule — one of the nation’s strongest — that required Oregon schools to retire their Native American symbols by July 2017 or risk losing state funding. Eight Oregon high schools, such as the Roseburg Indians and Reedsport Braves, would need to find new mascots under the current rule. Another six schools, including Lebanon High School, identified as the Warriors would be allowed to keep their nickname but must change mascots or graphics that depict Native Americans. The regulation would also apply to an unknown number of elementary and middle schools. The Roseburg School Board had begun a legal challenge to the state orders, but abandoned it after learning it was unlikely to win. But Sen. Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg, took up the issue with a 2013 bill and similar legislation this year. “From the perspective of the people in Roseburg — and I am one — being a Roseburg Indian is a source of pride for me,” Kruse said. Kruse was concerned that the mascot ban was enacted outside of the state’s government-to-gov-

Sen. Kruse responsible for bill to keep mascots BY STEVE LINDSLEY Umpqua Post

A Douglas County representative, who has been working hard for two years to make sure Oregon schools can keep their Native American mascots, sees the light at the end of the tunnel after the governor’s office agreed to a compromise. Gov. John Kitzhaber vetoed a similar bill after the legislature’s 2013 session, the only bill he vetoed. State Sen. Jeff Kruse, RRoseburg, shepherded that bill through the Legislature, which was overwhelmingly approved by both bodies, only to have it vetoed. He tried again during this year’s onemonth session and saw it pass the senate after the compromise. Kruse is a graduate of Roseburg High School. The school uses the name “Indians,” although their symbol is a feather, not a Native American characature. He says he expects the school will keep the name. “What the bill now says, basically, is we’re going back to square one” he said in an interview with

The Umpqua Post. “There will be a committee put together that will include folks from the school board association, among others, and members from the tribes. They will rewrite the rule that the state board (of education) adopted. At that time, the state board will have to accept that rule.” The Oregon State Board of Education adopted a rule in 2012 that Oregon schools with Native American mascots would have to change those by July, 2017, or risk losing state funding. The “Braves” mascot for Reedsport was in danger. Kruse, and other lawmakers, have been fighting that rule and, last week, found the governor was willing to compromise ... although the exact nature of that compromise is yet to be worked out. “We think, at the end of the day, it will be written in such a way that if, for example, if Roseburg and the Cow Creek Band (of Umpqua Indians) can sign an agreement, which they can,” Kruse explained. “They’ve already done all of that work and they can continue to be the Indians.”

Putting Memorial Day parade back on 101 will cost $1,500 It’s related to traffic control. A committee organizing the 2014 Memorial Day Parade and other events in Reedsport is planning on the parade returning, in part, to Highway 101. That’s going to cost organizers $1,500 ... a fee for services from the Oregon Department of Transportation. Dan Latham, a public information officer for the ODOT regional office in Roseburg said the fee is traffic-related. “In the past, the parade was held on Winchester Avenue or Old Town, off of Highway 101,” Latham said in an email to The Umpqua

DOWNED TREES

Post. “This year the organizers want to hold the parade on Highway 101. Since the organizers don’t have the equipment, personnel or expertise to provide traffic control for the parade, ODOT would have to do that. The $1,500 estimate is the cost of setting up VMS (variable message signs), arrow boards, detour signs and trucks as well as the staff hours.” ODOT will take traffic down to just one or two lanes on Highway 101 as the parade is happening on Monday, May 26. Jim Wells of the Reedsport

The Oregon Department of Transportation reported trees down again over the weekend after several windstorms blew through the area. ODOT had to close U.S. Highway 101 for a time on Saturday to give crews a chance to clean off the roadway. Photo courtesy Oregon Department of Transportation

“To me, it’s a little bit too big,” he said. “I’m looking forward to being in the Coos Bay farmers market on Wednesday. I’m looking forward to finding the flea markets they have in Coquille, Yachats and all of that. Because, I really want to stay close to where my house is.” He said he looks forward to building a network near his Winchester Bay home. He fabricates his own jewelry and sculptures and also does custom orders. “People can bring in their own stones and I can wrap them for them,” he said. Sometimes I can go look for the stones for the person and wrap it for them. I do know how to silversmith and goldsmith. But, I do copper because I’m recycling.” He shows a piece. “The lady that brought me these two stones, she also brought me a piece of copper,” he said. “I try to do little things like that where the customer also stays involved.” When asked where the customer got the copper, Ramos laughed.

The smaller the base is of returning customers, the better.” He was excited to hear of plans for a Reedsport farmers market this spring. “I would definitely be there,” he laughed. He has been in the area only three months, but is getting the lay of the artist land. “I have been to Eugene Saturday Market, the Eugene Holiday Market,” he said. “We are partners in the business because we both produce and we, kind of, bounce ideas off of each other and Eugene ends up being good, but it’s such a long drive.” Pollicino is a certified art teacher and is a substitute teacher in Coos Bay. Ramos says his art comes from a variety of sources. “Some things that I’m making I’m finding on the beach in Winchester Bay,” he admits. “It makes more sense to stay on the coast and sell things that are made from things from the coast.” He said he’s looked at Portland’s Saturday Market.

They specialize in wire work jewelry. “It’s artisan work.” Juan Ramos, along with his girlfriend, Amy Pollicino, both of Reedsport brought their special jewelry to Confluence over the weekend in downtown Reedsport. Ramos admits he’s been doing it for awhile. “I started it about 10 or 11 years ago,” he said as customers browsed their display. “I’ve always worked with my hands and then I met an artisan friend that introduced me to wire work and making things by hand … jewelry in particular.” He said he didn’t expect it to be a career. “I really didn’t plan on doing this,” he said. “It just happened and it’s good.” He admits he enjoys festivals and other places where he can display the art. “I’ve been doing farmers markets and festivals,” he said. “When I started, I made my booth, and then I got a chance to silversmith for somebody. I learned a lot.” As he talked, he took some time to discuss a custom order with a customer. Ramos said he enjoys Confluence. “Usually the two-day events end up generating a happier crowd, which is a better crowd for the vendors,” he admitted. “Farmers markets are actually my favorite thing to do. Whenever I can get into a farmers market I try to do that. Not only do you meet people that are interested in your art, but you meet people from the community. You meet people who are growing their own stuff. He said he appreciated that Confluence was mostly made up of smaller crafters. “I’ve done shows in Long Island, New York, where I was a handcrafter and there were a lot of

health occupations classes. Thanks to a cooperative agreement with the hospital, Tara’s students explore a variety of different health careers through hands-on experiences in the exam rooms and labs, from taking blood to giving X-rays to administering an ultrasound. The culinary arts class is another very popular elective class taught by RCCS’s head of food service and registered teacher Laura Squglio. Without home economics as part of the regular curriculum, students gravitate to this elective as possibly their only opportunity to learn the principles of cooking, kitchen safety, and food service. Every junior high student at RCCS has a daily Gear-Up class with one of two registered teachers, Lisa Smart and Janet Ramsay (who is also a certified teacher). This class guides them through activities related to crucial life skills and events such as study habits, personal finance, college preparation, and career choices. Braves Session provides a particularly convenient span of time between semesters to take advantage of the skills of registered teachers.

Former Reedsport High School marine biology and forestry teacher Bill Karcher is now a registered teacher who teaches ceramics at his studio during the two weeks of Braves Session each year, and former PE teacher Lynn Fulps and former Spanish teacher Bill Wiggans teach “School of Rock” each year as registered teachers. Craig Palermo, a substitute teacher during the rest of the year, taught the very popular marimba classes as a registered teacher for three years, and local photographer and registered teacher Dan Kenagy taught a digital photography class for three years. In all, almost half the student body is taught by a registered teacher/expert each day — but not a single one in a core course. Far from reducing the quality of instruction our students are receiving, the registered teachers enhance the students’ education by providing meaningful, interesting elective subject matter that complements what they’re learning from their 100% highly qualified faculty.

Kitzhaber FROM PAGE 1

Opponents call Indian mascots racist, harmful ernment relationship with the tribes and could have “set a very good relationship in a backwards mode.” Senate Bill 1509 seeks to respect that relationship, he said, by allowing the tribes to have a say in the Native American representations and the conditions under which schools may be allowed to continue their use. The bill would give the state Board of Education until Jan. 1, 2017, to work out general rules for mascot use agreements in consultation with the tribes. Kruse said he hoped it would also lead to more opportunities to educate Oregon children about the

history and impact of Native Americans in the state. In Senate committee hearings earlier in the week, opponents of the original bill said it would allow Indian mascots that are racist, harm the self-esteem of Native American students and encourage bullying of those students. Se-ah-dom Edmo, vice president of the Oregon Indian Education Association, told the Senate Education and Workforce Development Committee Tuesday, Feb. 11, the issue is “in part” about government-to-government relations, but is also about individual human and civil rights. But Edmo said Friday that she is happy with the compromise reached and believes the consultation process it creates will allow all of the issues to be worked

out while respecting tribal and individual rights. Since the 1970s, more than 600 high school and college teams across the country have done away with their Native American nicknames, including 20 in Oregon.

If school, tribe can’t reach agreement, mascot will change Kruse was asked why the compromise didn’t come last year, when a lot of work went into the effort. “We heard the bill in the senate,” Kruse said, “and it passed the senate and the governor did not object to it until it was over in the house. The people who were doing the negotiations in the house never quite got to the point. “Basically, what it came down to is the governor wasn’t going to sign a bill that changed the ruling by the state board of ed. So, what it came down to at the end of the day was to find a way to modify the ruling of the state board.” Kruse kept people in his district appraised of the developments in his newsletter. “After a great deal of conversation with folks from the schools, the tribes and the governor’s office we finally arrived at a version

said, “but we have time to do that. I think, at the end of the day, in virtually every case, we will maintain the status quo. There may be some schools which are still using, like, a chieftain’s headdress, or something like that, may have to eliminate doing that. But what we have set up is a scenario whereby the ruling of the state board will set some basic parameters, but allow the agreement … to be made at the local level by the school and the tribe.” Whether Reedsport gets to keep its Indian Head mascot will come through negotiations. The nearest tribes are Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians of Oregon and Coquille Indian Tribe. He said he knows the whole thing is confusing. “Something very simple got very convoluted,” he said. “You have to know how to read legislative language to know where we got. I’m satisfied.” He said the agreement was worked out “without poking the governor in the eye.”

of support. “Anyone can be a financial backer of the Defeat River Brewery for as little as 20 bucks and help us make history,” Allen said. By the way, Allen said the Defeat River is located just north of Reedsport and is commonly known today as the Smith River. It was renamed in the 1800s after Jedediah Smith died. Their flyer said Allen and Frazier have “been home brewing, taste testing and otherwise letting their beernerdiness shine for close to five years.” The brewery will be located on Fir Avenue in downtown Reedsport. “We’ll have a bar location,” Allen said. “We’ll be making beer at the same location. It’ll be a tap room at first, with five beers. Hopefully, within the next 10 months, we’ll expand to a variety of 10 different beers.” Both Allen and Frazier will

be the brewmasters. “We share an equal part in the brewing,” Allen said. Allen said he was pleased with the response of people who came up during the Confluence event. “Everyone’s excited,” he said. “It’s really exciting for us to try to have the opportunity to open the first Brewery that Reedsport’s ever had. We see ourselves as ‘beer missionaries,’ trying to spread the word about quality beer in town.” At first, they hope to have the brewery open four days a week. That opening is expected in fall or winter, later this year. Some brews customers can expect at first: pale ale, different IPAs, scotch ale, porter, wheat beers and Cascadian Dark Ale. Allen says they hope to add lagers, cask ale, barrel aged and experimental beers. Find information at info@defeatriverbrewery.com

Reedsport girls split basketball games THE UMPQUA POST Reedsport’s girls basketball team faced a make-orbreak game Tuesday night in the regular-season finale Win and the Braves are in the state playoffs. Lose and the season is over. The District 1 playoffs are Saturday at St. Mary’s High School in Medford. They will determine the seeding of the three representatives for the Class 2A playoffs. Reedsport split its two games against Class 3A squads Bandon and Glide to tune up for the Bobcats, who have been on a roll since losing to Reedsport the last time the teams played.

Reedsport beat Bandon 50-35. Kayla Doane had 24 points and Gabby White added 10 in the win. On Friday, the Braves fell to Sunset Conference champion Glide 50-36. Doane had 20 points in the loss, and the Braves stayed in contact with the Wildcats until the fourth quarter. Reedsport’s boys fell to Bandon 53-29. Tyler Tresch had 10 points in the loss. Then the Braves suffered a 44-42 loss at Glide, when a late shot for the lead was off the mark. The season ended for Reedsport’s boys with the Tuesday game against Myrtle Point.

weight class (152 pounds) and has battled injuries this year. Freshman Eric Williams is wrestling at 120 pounds, which Marchione said is probably a little higher weight class than he should. The tournament will begin at 4 p.m. Friday, with the first round and quarterfinals, plus up to two consolation rounds contested on the opening day. Saturday’s action starts with the semifinals at 10 a.m., followed by consolation matches and the championship finals. There might also be wrestle-backs if any of the third-place finishers have not had a chance to wrestle the runners-up in their weight classes, since only two wrestlers advance to state. Admission each day is $4 for adults and $3 for students. A two-day pass is $6 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens. The other teams besides Reedsport are Crow, Glendale, Gold Beach, Lowell, McKenzie, Mohawk, Myrtle Point, North Douglas, Oakland, Oakridge and Riddle. The Braves had been scheduled for three home meets this year, but all were canceled, so the team is excited to finally be wrestling in its home gym. “We haven’t had a real crowd before,” Hixenbaugh said. “I hope we get a lot of people out. It would be nice if people get excited about it, and see what we do. “If we wrestle the way we know, it will be all right.”

Muddy water makes for less than ideal conditions The steelhead fishing pressure on the Umpqua River has eased up, for a couple of different reasons. As I am writing this column, the mainstem Umpqua River is running high and muddy and fishing conditions are far from ideal. The other reason for the decreased fishing pressure is that all the other steelhead streams in the area now have enough water in them that the steelhead that were waiting to ascent them now have and are scattered throughout those streams. As these streams clear and the river flows start to decrease, fishing should be very good. Tenmile Creek and Eel Creek almost never get muddy, but recent flows have been very high and Eel Creek was more murky than usual. However, Eel Creek finally has
