What would you do for someone you love? By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World

BANDON — A small, selfless gesture turned into something much larger for two Harbor Lights Middle School eighth-graders, who learned that sometimes doing something scary can make you a braver person. Sarah Skeie and her friend KayLynn Pickett, both 13, worry about their looks, like many girls their age. But Sarah, whose mother, June, has suffered from recurring cancer since Sarah was in preschool, wanted to do something to show her mother that she understood her suffering, at least at some level. So Sarah and KayLynn, who both had beautiful, long hair — KayLynn’s was a strawberry blonde and 13 inches long and Sarah’s thick, dark locks were 10 inches — shaved their heads to match June’s recent buzz, caused by chemotherapy. “When I was in sixth grade, my mom had been clear for a long time, but then she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer,” Sarah explained. “After surgery and chemo, she was OK for one year.” But a few months ago, doctors found cancer cells in June’s blood. Then, four days before Mother’s Day, June was told she had cancerous cysts in her liver and bladder. “I wanted to show her that I supported her every day, so I shaved my hair,” Sarah said, and KayLynn did, too.” KayLynn’s dad, Boe Pickett, was the barber. But first they cut pony tails to donate to Locks of Love. Then the girls surprised June on Mother’s Day. “She had a really big smile on her face and said it was great,” KayLynn said. Sarah said she hadn’t seen her mother smile like that for months. At school the next day, however, some boys made fun of the girls’ new hairstyles. “The first boy who made fun of us is

Bandon remembers the devastating fire of 1914 By Jim Proehl Contributing writer Bandon Western World

BANDON — A devastating fire struck Bandon’s business district 100 years ago. Though overshadowed by the much larger 1936 fire, the fire of June 11, 1914 was a significant event in the community’s history. The Bandon Historical Society Museum is commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the 1914 fire during the months of June and July. The museum has an exhibit devoted to telling the fire’s story. A 100-year-old copy of the Western World, on loan to the museum from Mayor Mary Schamehorn, reported the story of the fire the same day it happened. “Fully three blocks of the business houses in the heart of Bandon were

burned to the ground early today in the most disastrous fire ever experienced in Coos County, which caused an aggregate loss of no less than a quarter million dollars,” reported the June 11, 1914, Western World. The paper said more than a hundred commercial and professional establishments were damaged by fire, smoke and water. “No lives were lost but some narrow escapes are reported and many were forced to take to the streets attired only in their night clothes.” The fire broke out about four o’clock in the morning in the rear of the L. N. E. Restaurant, “which is located in the center of the block between Bandon Avenue and Cleveland Avenue on First Street.” “The fire alarm was sounded and the

Civil War program at the museum features talk, music, memorabilia BANDON — The Bandon Historical Society Museum will host another in a series of presentations about Bandon and the Civil War. The free program will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 14, at the museum. The event will include a history talk, live music and an opportunity to see and share Civil War memorabilia. Civil War buff Rick Cook will be the keynote speaker. Cook’s presentation will focus on the role of women during the Civil War by exploring the story of Mary A. Shoemaker, a union soldier’s widow buried in Bandon’s GAR cemetery. Cook presented two earlier well attended and will received programs at the Bandon museum, as well as programs

in Port Orford and Langlois. Cook traces the war stories of soldiers who settled in the local area and explores the role those veterans played in local history. Music that reflects and evokes the Civil War era will be played by Company A, 1st Oregon String Band. Band members include Bob and Jerene Shaffar, Bryan Ibach and Rick Cook. The event coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Attendees are welcome to bring and share Civil War related items. The Bandon Historical Society Museum is located at the corner of U.S. Highway 101 and Fillmore Avenue. During the summer, the museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

PUBLIC RECORD OBITUARIES Wayne Richard Scherer April 2, 1938 – June 5, 2014 Wayne Scherer was born April 2, 1938, to Wayne Robert and Grace Miriam Scherer in Norristown, Pa. In 1946, he moved with his parents and younger brothers, Nelson and Clyde to Claremont, Calif., attending school there until he graduated from Claremont High School in 1956 as senior class president. Following high school, he attended Cal Poly Pomona graduating as a mechanical engineer. Before graduating from college, Wayne married Sandra Lu Briney in 1959 with whom he had three children: Greg, Guy and Bonnie. Their family settled in Pomona where he worked as an engineer specializing in the design of exhaust systems for vehicles ranging from semi-trucks to high performance cars. Acting on a promise made to Sandy, they explored the possibility of moving to Oregon, culminating in the 1971 purchase of their beautiful cranberry farm in Bandon. Wayne Scherer Wayne spent the rest of his life on the farm he loved, with Sandy, who died in 2005, and then Barbara (affectionately known as “Barb”) whom he married in 2008. He was a dedicated father who saw all his children graduate from Bandon High School, attend Oregon universities, and settle in Oregon. He also took delight in his seven grandchildren who knew him as “Pop”; Nathanael and Aaron Scherer, Logan and Cole Scherer, and Elle, Hailey and Lilly Iverson. During his years in Bandon, Wayne was active in several churches, both as a member and as a church elder. He was also active in the community serving

both on the Bandon Hospital Board of Directors, and on the Ocean Spray Board of Directors representing the Oregon cranberry growers. In addition to loving his lifestyle on the farm, Wayne had an incredible passion for cars, having bought his first at the age of 12. For the remainder of his life he built, drove, raced, tinkered with, and read and talked about cars. He frequented car shows and swap meets, and enjoyed the company of car club members and other fellow auto enthusiasts. He was very proud of the cars he refurbished and customized, including, to name a few, the ‘40 Ford, the ‘55 T-Bird, the ‘55 Nomad, and the ‘57 T-Bird. The last project he was working on was the big ole’ ‘41 Buick which received attention and waves from people wherever he drove it. He called it, “the 50-footer, because it looked good from that far away.” Wayne’s high school Class of ‘56 was also very special to him and an important part of his life. Yearly reunions gave opportunity to spend time with some of his closest friends. One of those reunions led to the marriage of his classmate Barb, with whom he lived some of the happiest years of his life on the farm and traveling around the country. But perhaps the most enduring part of his life was his Christian faith. He always trusted that God would provide all that was needed (a valuable belief for a farmer!). His beliefs have significantly influenced and shaped all the members of his family. Wayne’s memorial service will be officiated by Wayne’s pastor, Rick House at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at the Bandon Christian Fellowship Church, 1190 Face Rock Drive in Bandon. Donations may be made to the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health ( Arrangements are under the direction of Amling/Schroeder Funeral Service, Bandon, 541-3472907. Sign the guestbook at

Preppers announce upcoming events Southwestern Oregon Preppers will hold three events in June. A meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 18, at the Langlois Public Library, 48234 Highway 101 in Langlois. The main topic is “Everything You Wanted About To Know Prepping.” Living on the southwestern Oregon coast means one should always be prepared because the area is prone to being cut off, whether it is from the impending ea r t h q u a ke / ts u n a m i , mudslide, fire, washed away roads, etc., according to organizers. Power outages, undrinkable water, broken roads/bridges and extreme weather are things residents have lived through before and may experience again. SWOP meetings always start with a question-and-answer

period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate. A special skills building and practice hands-on workshop will be held by Southwestern Oregon Preppers at noon Saturday, June 21, at Bandon City Park on the west end of 11th Street in Bandon. Water purification, knot tying, paracord usage, hobo/rocket stoves, bandanas, bug out bag inspection, outdoor shelters using tarps, map reading, etc. will be covered by presenters. This is an opportunity for those participating to get hands-on experience and practice their skills. Later that evening, SWOP and the city of Bandon will be hosting a Disaster Movie Night at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at the Bandon Library, Sprague Room, 1204

11th St. SW in Bandon. Admission is free. The movie “Right At Your Door” will be shown. A dirty bomb goes off in Los Angeles, jamming freeways and spreading a toxic cloud. There are many lessons to be learned from this movie, according to SWOP organizers. After the movie, there will be an open discussion to determine what residents should and shouldn’t do in a similar disaster. These are all free public meetings and events to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be on their own in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern

ODOT update The southbound Interstate 5 off-ramp at Exit 162 (Drain) will be closed up to 33 days starting Monday, June 16, due to road construction. This ramp, which connects I-5 with state Highway 38 (Umpqua Highway), is primarily used by southbound I-5 motorists heading to Drain, Elkton and the Southern Oregon coast. Approximately 2,500 vehicles use this ramp each day. For the first four weeks of the ramp closure, southbound I-5 motorists will be able to take the Exit 163 (Curtin) off-ramp and 1 detour 1 ⁄2 miles along Bear Creek Road and Curtin Road to Highway 38. Motorists should watch for detour signs and roadside message boards. Approximately 25 families live along this section of Bear Creek Road and Curtin Road. Motorists are advised to slow down, drive with caution and watch for children at play in this residential neighborhood. The speed limit has been temporarily reduced to 35 mph along the posted detour route. Local law enforcement will patrol the area. For up to five days in July, the southbound Exit 163 (Curtin) off-ramp will also be closed. During this time, southbound I-5 motorists who want to reach Highway 38 should

use alternate routes. Local motorists may choose to continue south on I-5 to Exit 160 (Salt Spring Road) or Exit 159 (Elk Creek/Cox Road), turn around and use the Exit 162 (Drain) northbound off-ramp. To avoid congestion, motorists from outside the area should consider alternate routes to the Oregon coast, such as state Highway 126 (Florence to Eugene Highway). The southbound onramp at Exit 163 (Curtin) will be closed from June 16 until the end of July. Local motorists planning to drive south on I-5 should use the southbound onramp at Exit 162 (Drain), which will remain open throughout construction. The ramp closures will allow workers to repair the concrete in the southbound I-5 slow lane. The repairs are part of the $18.5 million I-5: Martin Creek to Anlauf Paving project, which will repair or replace the concrete road surface in several areas of I-5 between Cottage Grove and Drain. All northbound ramps throughout the project area will remain open during this construction phase.

WESTERN WORLD Editor: Amy Moss Strong

“If free speech lacks vigor, it likewise lacks value; and having lost that, nothing worthy of the name ‘free speech’ remains.”

A4 • Bandon Western World

— Ronald K.L. Collins First Amendment Center, 2001 Thursday,JUNE 12, 2014

Bandon students are college-bound As I prepare to attend my daughter’s graduation from the University of Oregon, I am struck by another graduation ceremony I attended this week: Bandon High School’s. I have to confess that I never cease to be amazed at how much money this community offers BANDON CURRENTS to its young people to encourage them to seek higher education. And it’s working. According to S u p e r i n te n d e n t Diane Buche, 39 of the 58 class members will attend college and four AMY MOSS will enter a trade STRONG school. That’s encouraging for such a small town, where the job opportunities are scarce, but even more so without a degree or skill. Would these students be motivat-

ed to attend a college or university if they weren’t given the wonderful opportunity that the many benefactors have provided in the form of more than $250,000 in local scholarships? I have my doubts. College is expensive and while there have been recent debates and promises to make it more attainable, these promises still fall short. For students who weren’t at the top of their class, most scholarship grantors look at more than your GPA. They look at community service, leadership and character. There’s also federal aid for students whose family qualifies. That’s where the BHS ASPIRE program comes in. Volunteers help students find the money for school, and, believe me, it’s out there — but they have to apply. Higher education doesn’t guarantee a job. My own daughter still isn’t sure what career path she will

take, but I believe an education is never wasted. What students gain after two or four years of college is something no one can ever take away. A college degree is a sense of accomplishment, a widening of your personal sphere, a new, permanent way to approach a life full of challenges. Perhaps college isn’t for everyone. Some BHS students will enter the work force, some are undecided. But for many of those who do want to attend, they have been blessed with less of a burden. And I’m sure they are grateful. E.A.T. going strong I attended the 10th anniversary of the Everyone At Table program Tuesday night. Allison Hundley, E.A.T. chairwoman, has always graciously invited me and local dignitaries for a delicious home-cooked turkey dinner on their yearly anniversary. The program provides a homecooked meal to those on limited

incomes on Tuesdays at The Barn, and especially encourages families. It serves an average of 50-65 guests per week. Hundley said they are seeing more people who are currently out of work and families with small children struggling to make ends meet. Transients and seniors looking for some company are accommodated as well, but asked to donate what they can. E.A.T. is staffed entirely by volunteers, who cheerfully prepare and serve the meal. It is funded by donations from individuals, churches, service clubs, grants and fundraisers, including the annual Bandon Feeds the Hungry variety show, set this year for Saturday, Oct. 4, at the Sprague Theater. The organization recently received $1,200 from the city’s Revenue Sharing program. Allison and the E.A.T. board are to be commended for their 10 years of inviting everyone to the table.

Letters BandonPrepares in good hands As I turn over the leadership, governance and management of BandonPrepares to a new suite of officers and board, I pause to thank the people who have made the success of this vital organization possible. First my thanks to Matt Winkel, the city manager. Former Mayor Judy Densmore, Sara Duvall and the rest of the city council chose well when we hired him back in 1991. (I think?) His confidence in me to implement the mandate of Dr. George Priest of DOGAMI to form a grass roots organization to finish the job started by Charli Davis and other members of city staff under the six-month grant from the government of Oregon. Matt was closely followed by Fire Chief Lanny Boston who made the support of the Bandon Rural Fire Protection District available to us. Lanny made it possible for BandonPrepares to expand our sphere of mission to the whole district, which has provided a meeting place and other resources. And of course my thanks to my bride of almost 57 years who participated in the early days of the organizing and has supported and continues to support my efforts, Linda Kowalski, leader of the Nehalem Bay organization that is very much like BandonPrepares, has been very generous in her advice and shared the organizational documents that have been shamelessly plagiarized. Finally I want to thank the new officers: President Leslie Clarke, vice president and treasurer Dr. Doug Croucher, secretary Nancy Noble Post and the new expanded board of directors of which I am a member. Their competence and dedication make it possible for me to step down in good conscience. But the job is not done. With the continued support of Amy Moss Strong and the Bandon Western World we are becoming more aware and preparing to survive whatever disaster may befall the community. Remember, “When the ground starts to shake, it is too late to prepare!” Bill Russell Bandon

Thanks to ASPIRE volunteers On behalf of Bandon High School students, staff and administration, we offer a big thank you to our ASPIRE volunteers for their efforts working with our students in their pursuit of post-secondary education. ASPIRE is a completely volunteer run and grantfunded organization. This program would not exist without the gracious time and energy from our dedicated volunteers. This year’s graduates have been awarded more than $750,000 in scholarship funding. This can be directly attributed to collaborative efforts of our mentors and the hard work of our students. In addition, we would like to acknowledge the tireless efforts of Project Graduation and their continued commitment to our graduates. The people of Bandon go above and beyond in their support of our students. It is demonstrated year after year through community partnerships with local organizations that provide financial and emotional support.

Thank you for the flags We were delighted and surprised to see the fine display of flags displayed at our two cemeteries on Memorial Day. We inquired at the VFW Hall as to who was responsible and who had paid for this grand show of patriotism. As it happens, much of the effort and money came from the VFW, as we were told. I think that the community owes the VFW a big

thank you for this. Personally, we certainly appreciated it. Peter Mortenson Bandon

Who decides what’s important? In response to the article printed in the Thursday, June 5, Bandon Western World, where Chief Bob Webb asks the citizens of Bandon to call in and report things they hear or witness: Why should we when there is a missing link between our call to report and who decides if it is important or not? After years of reading the police report in the newspaper, there are more “unable to locates” or “not as reported.” As a citizen of Bandon, it seems that there is a Good Old Boy way of thinking.

Tour de Fronds is June 21 Bandon Western World

The annual Tour De Fronds bike ride is June 21 in the Powers area. The event, described as “the least publicized, best-kept bicycling secret in Southwestern Oregon” begins and ends in Powers County Park. Now in its 17th year, the event offers riders routes on five paved courses and two gravel courses ranging from 30 to 102 miles. Check-in and day of

event registration is from 6:30-9:30 a.m. at the Powers County Park. The out-and-back paved rides include 30 miles to Daphne Grove, 43 miles to Agness Pass, 61 miles to Eden Valley, 76 miles to Arrasta Saddle and the 102-mile Cruiser Century Loop. The two gravel routes are the 33-mile Respiratory Discomfort ride and the 45-mile Respiratory Distress ride along the Johnson Mountain circuit. Fees range from $30-

Friday at Northwest Christian University in Eugene. That game will be followed by the North and West teams and then the State-Metro game for the state’s biggest schools. On Saturday, the action moves to Sprague High School in Salem. The losers of the two 4A-3A-2A games Friday play at 4 p.m., followed by the championship game at 5:30 and again the State-Metro game. Nice said he was excited that Henson and Shea were part of the team after leading Bandon to the Class 3A

playoffs this winter. “They’re going to be around a lot of good players,” he said. “It’s nice to play our series and then kick back and watch the 6A studs.” Getting a chance to coach Henson and Shea made Nice want to take part even though he’s very busy with his primary job at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. “Part of the draw for me to do it was knowing Evan and Logan were going to be there,” he said. “It’s certainly something I wanted to do together with those guys.”

$50. The event is sponsored by the Powers Lions Club. The Tour de Fronds is described as one of the most beautiful cycling events in Oregon in one of the most complex botanical and geologic areas in the Pacific Northwest. The routes include a variety of ferns, mosses, lichens, and wildflowers; lush meadows, sparkling waterways, cascading waterfalls, and majestic, old growth Douglas Fir and Port Orford cedar and abundant wildlife. The Tour de Fronds traverses Oregon’s premier Glendale/Powers Bicycle Recreation Area, a project of U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Rest stops will be set up on all rides with snacks and liquids available. A post-ride lasagna dinner will be served to all registrants at Ross Hall and is included in the registration fee. Riders can register online at or by mailing the form that can be downloaded from the website. Additional information can be found at or by emailing

Best fishing moves from the rivers to the lakes Local lakes: Cathy from Ringo’s Lakeside Marina on Tenmile Lakes told us that the trout and largemouth bass fishing has been excellent. Trout anglers are still finding plenty of perch minnows inside of the trout they are catching and are starting to fillet yellow perch and use strips of the fillet for trout bait. The largemouth bass are in a post spawn mode and are actively feeding in the shallows. Anglers are starting to do real well casting top water baits like frongs and salamanders. For those that are unaware, Lakeside Marina 541-759-3312 rents 14-foot aluminum boats, bass boats, ski boats and pontoon boats at reasonable rates. Trout fishing has also been good at recently stocked Empire Lakes in Coos Bay. And look for fishing to be good on Garrison Lake in Port Orford once the winds lay down. Powers Pond will be stocked this week in time for the Powers kids fishing derby this Saturday, June 14. Local rivers: Spring salmon fishing has

to improved hatchery and natural produced coho populations, the 2014 ocean coho season should provide the most time on the water for coho fishing since the 2010 season. Fishery managers expect selection fishing for fin-clipped hatchery coho beginning in late June to be very good along the Oregon Coast, especially from Bandon north to the Columbia River. Area shellfish: A few Dungeness crab are being caught off of Weber’s Pier in Bandon and out on the lower portions of Coos Bay. The windy weather conditions have hampered the effort on the South Coast.

boats at the water front blew their whistles which were heard all over the city. Probably fifteen or twenty minutes elapsed before sufficient men appeared on the scene to begin a systematic fight against the flames, which by this time had gained great headway. By 4:30 (a.m.) the streets were crowded with people and the city was in great uproar,” said the Western World. In 1914, Bandon’s business district was centered a few blocks farther west of Bandon’s current Old Town. The Port of Bandon’s green building, its adjacent parking lot, and the parking lot and vacant lots across the street now occupy the approximate area of the fire. “A light night wind was blowing from the northeast which fanned the flames from the center of the ill-fated block toward the east and south directly across the street. Sometimes they shot thirty feet into the air and the horrible hell that lapped up the old wooden hissed and roared like a mammoth forest fire. “Gradually it spread in each direction on both sides of the street until it had consumed every building from the Club

saloon on the corner of Bandon Avenue, west on First Street to the Trowbridge general store, and north on Bandon Avenue to the Estabrook warehouse. “On the south side of First Street it started from the Gross Brothers saloon on the corner of Bandon avenue, went south to the hill and west to the concrete Hartman building which was completely gutted. “On the east side of Bandon avenue it caught in the Jamieson & Page saloon and traveled down the south side of Wall street to the Trowbridge paint shop,” reported the Western World. Under a headline that read “Dynamite Does Good Work,” the newspaper said, “Dynamite brought into play by J.C. Shields and Ernest Boak, on the Anderson residence on Wall Street and the Club saloon opposite the Hub clothing store, proved remarkable efficient in preventing the loss of the entire eastern part of the business section.” “Three men were handling the hose on the top of the Recorder building and had a close call from an awful death when a gust of wind sent a cloud

Love our friend,” Sarah said. “He felt bad, so he shaved his head too.” Then another friend did the same. Two others followed suit. The girls used the opportunity to talk about bullying, positive influences, strength and beauty to younger class members. That sparked an idea: 20 Days of Nice. Each day, students wrote nice messages on a piece of construction paper posted near the office. Each day was filled with kind thoughts written by students and staff members. “I know a lot of cancer patients who don’t feel beautiful, but they are strong and beautiful,” Sarah said. The students then partnered with sixthgrade teachers Amy Flora and Kathleen Augsburger, to help students create “good energy” posters, which Sarah took to Bay Area Hospital’s oncology

of fire over their heads from the concrete building adjoining on the east. They dropped the hose and two succeeded in crawling along the center of the roof until they reached the ladder at the front. The third, Ernest Philpott, was unable to reach the ladder and it was only through his presence of mind and daring leap that saved his life. Seizing a loose electric wire which was fastened at the top of the building he lowered himself to the edge of the roof and leaped into a rug that was held in the shape of a net by a number of men,” reported the paper. The Western World editorialized, “It is generally regarded among the business men of the city that the district covered by the fire is so important that it must be and will be rebuilt. While to a number of the property owners the fire was a severe blow the heavier losers take a very optimistic view and declare that the destroyed portion of the city will be made more substantial than ever before and that the capital will in some way be available.” The newspaper’s prediction proved to be correct.

Each day, a different poster is put into a frame to boost patients’ morale. “We just did this because we love June so much and doing something for someone is always the right thing to do,” KayLynn said. “I’m not just supporting my mom, but anybody that has to go through such a hard time,” Sarah said.

Principal Debbie Greenfield is proud of the girls. “The thing that struck me most about these girls is that it took a huge amount of courage and strength to do this, especially in junior high, when they are so concerned about looks,” Greenfield said. “I couldn’t have done that at that young age. I admire them.”

Bandon Historical Society photos

A smoky dawn Crowds gathered at dawn to survey the damage of a fire that ravaged several businesses along Bandon’s waterfront a hundred years ago. ter set of buildings replaced those lost in the 1914 fire, only to be burned again in 1936. After the 1936 fire, the concrete shells of those buildings were pushed into the bay as fill and the commercial district moved farther east or followed the highway to higher ground. More information on the 1914 fire is available at the Bandon Historical Museum. The museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located at the corner of U.S. Highway 101 and Fillmore Street.

The first Bandon fire One hundred years ago, a fire destroyed several blocks of downtown Bandon.

2014 The Bill Magness Scholarship provided $56,000 in renewable, four-year scholarships. The Bandon Community Scholarship of the Oregon Community Foundation, provided a total of $24,000 in renewable scholarships for the three valedictorians: Quinn Hamblin, Elle Iverson and Hope Richert. The combined amount in scholarships from the Caryll Mudd Sprague, Mildred Mudd, Norman F. Sprague Junior, Alda Lowe Day and Arnott Day foundations totaled almost $20,000. And that wasn’t all. Many students also received scholarships from Oregon and out-of-state colleges and universities — some $113,620 in the form of tuition waivers and scholarships from Southwestern Oregon Community College alone, along with three Chick Evans Scholars — Shawn Peters, Alaina Russell and Jon Wilhite — who will receive up to $80,000 over four years and one Ford Scholar — Emily Wampler — provided by The Ford Family Foundation and good for up to $100,000 ($25,000 per year for four years). Other students received generous scholarships from Oregon State, the University of Oregon, Portland State and other state institutions. But the students weren’t thinking about the money Saturday night. Rather, they were reflecting on their school days. “(These years) sailed by faster than expected,” said class president and salutatorian Emily Wampler. “We’ve made it here, but not without complications.” “It takes a village to raise a child — and more to raise teenagers,” Wampler added. She said the class is grateful for the community’s support, especially the local businesses and individuals that give every time a donation is requested. Wampler said when she moved here from Bend, classmates made room for her within their circle of friends. “There’s a connection in smaller communities that isn’t anywhere else,” she said. “We accept each other.” Hope Richert, one of three valedictorians, thanked parents and family

Valedictorian Quinn Hamblin talked about what the future holds for the Class of 2014 and the challenges they face. He reminded them not to forget where they came from. Also reflecting was Diane Superintendent Buche, who is retiring at the end of August after nine years with the district. Buche described how she met many of the class members when she came on as principal of Ocean Crest and they were fourth-graders. “I watched them learn and grow,” Buche said. She learned their favorite foods, colors and activities. “But the most interesting information we learned about them way back in fourth grade is what they wanted to be when they

grew up, because just a few months ago, each senior had to present their senior projects and share with us their plans after high school, and their answers were not exactly the same as now,” Buche said. Then, students wanted to be “a professional,” as in athletes, closely followed video game makers, veterinarians (especially vets that get to work with horses). “My favorite jobs shared were horse dentist and cat socializer,” Buche said. “But that was nine years ago and changes to their class happened immediately.” Buche said of the 58 graduates, 39 will attend college; 24 of them at SWOCC and four will enter a trade school. One will enlist in the Navy, 11 will enter the workforce and three are undecided. “And as they move forward ... they will continue to learn and grow, and they will continue to follow or alter their path, and their life accomplishments will be priceless.” Following a song by the BHS choir, receiving their diplomas and turning their tassels, class members boarded two school buses and were whisked away to a night of activities planned by Project Graduation, ending with breakfast back in Bandon at Lord Bennett’s and the distribution of gifts to aid them in the next phase of their lives.
