Survey Continued from C1 There is also an opportunity for people to write comments on the survey. “We’re hoping we hear something new and different that we haven’t thought of,” Johnson said. County Commissioner Alan Unger said people who moved to Deschutes County from other areas of the country might have ideas that worked in those places. “Maybe they’re from somewhere else that does things differently than we do that we could learn from,” Unger said. “Another thing would be, how important is road maintenance to the citizens, and how strongly would they support solutions that we could bring to them for consideration?”

Elsie M. Yates Spletter January 12, 1923 - July 4, 2011 Elsie M. Spletter, 88 years old, of Bend, died July 4, 2011, a Bend resident since 1953.

She was a member of the Church of God Church. She is survived by a son, Mitchell of La Pine; three grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. She also leaves four sisters, Ester Reese of Peterson, IA, Shirley Ruby of Worthington, MN, Lois Brossart of Escondido, CA, Margaret Shaver of Rialto, CA; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death are her, mother, father, five brothers, and three sisters, her husband, and one grandson. At her request no services will be held. Deschutes Memorial Chapel is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be extended to the family at

“Maintaining roads is the right thing to do,” Unger said. The survey will remain online for at least two weeks, and Johnson said she might keep it up longer if a lot of people are filling it out. The county is using the company SurveyMonkey, which provides a tally of the results, including how many people participated, Johnson said. County Administrator Dave Kanner and the county commissioners will receive the report and will likely discuss the results. The county’s subscription to SurveyMonkey costs $200 a year, and the county can do an unlimited number of surveys, Johnson said. Hillary Borrud can be reached at 541-617-7829 or at

Lawrence Newman, 86, ardent advocate for deaf By Dennis McLellan Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Lawrence Newman, a prominent advocate for the rights of deaf people and a former longtime teacher and administrator at the California School for the Deaf in Riverside, has died. He was 86. Newman, who served two terms as president of the National Association of the Deaf, died Monday at his home in Riverside of complications from emergency surgery and a long battle with Parkinson’s disease, said his daughter Laureen Newman-Feldhorn. “Larry was a true gentleman and someone I admired for his hard work and dedication on behalf of the deaf community,” T. Alan Hurwitz, president of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. Gallaudet is the world’s only liberal arts university for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. “His legacy for his contributions to the betterment of education for deaf children will forever be remembered,” said Hurwitz, a former president of the National Association of the Deaf who served on its board of directors with Newman. “He was a significant role model for me, and I know he will always be regarded as a giant in the deaf community.” Deaf since he was 5 in 1930, Newman joined the faculty at the California School for the Deaf in Riverside as a mathematics teacher in 1953. He taught there for 20 years and was chosen California Teacher of the Year by the state Department of Education in 1969 — the

Charter Continued from C1 Currently, Bend’s mayor is chosen by a majority vote by the seven-member City Council and holds that position for two years. Though the mayor doesn’t have any more power than the other councilors, the mayor helps set agendas and essentially serves as a ceremonial head of the city who attends ribbon-cuttings and various other events.

Requires election To change the mayoral position to one that is elected by

first deaf teacher so honored in California. Newman always stressed the importance of education in the lives of deaf children and fought for the right of deaf students to be educated using sign language. “If deaf people could get an education, their minds would be set free and the kingdom of the world would be theirs,” he once wrote. After four years as principal of the Taft School for the Aurally Handicapped in Santa Ana, Calif. (now the Taft Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program) beginning in 1973, Newman returned to the California School for the Deaf in Riverside in 1977 as assistant superintendent. He retired in 1988. The youngest of three sons, whose parents ran a small neighborhood bakery in Manhattan, Newman was born in Brooklyn on March 23, 1925. He had normal hearing until he was 5, but a chronic ear infection led to mastoiditis. As chronicled in a 2010 article on Newman in Deaf Life, “the doctor who operated on him accidentally severed the left seventh cranial nerve, which transverses the middle ear and controls the muscles of facial expression on that side.” The operation not only left Newman profoundly deaf but also caused the left side of his face to become motionless. He was a student at the Lexington School for the Deaf in New York before attending the New York School for the Deaf, where he played on the football team. At what is now known as Gallaudet University, he earned

a bachelor’s degree in English and met his future wife, Betty, who was hard-of-hearing most of her life and became deaf in her late 40s. They were married in 1950, and Betty later taught language arts at the California School for the Deaf in Riverside. After earning a master’s degree in English Literature at Catholic University in 1950, Newman launched his teaching career at the Central New York School for the Deaf in Rome, N.Y., where, instead of teaching English, he was assigned to teach high school math. Newman, who served as president of the National Association of the Deaf from 1986 to 1990, established the National Committee on Equal Educational Opportunities for Deaf Children. Earlier, he served as president of the International Association of Parents of the Deaf, which is now known as the American Society for Deaf Children. He also was a leading supporter of closed-captioned television, which has become widely available. Newman wrote two books: “Sands of Time: NAD Presidents 1880-2003,” published by the National Association of the Deaf in 2006, and “I Fill This Small Space: The Writings of a Deaf Activist,” published by Gallaudet University Press in 2009. In addition to his daughter Laureen and his wife of 61 years, Newman is survived by two sons, Mitchell and Warner, two other daughters, Carol Newman, who is deaf, and Rochelle Braithwaite; a brother, Leonard; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

voters, the city would need to amend its charter, which is basically Bend’s constitution. Making a change to the city’s charter requires an election, and has only been successfully done twice since 1995. For this reason, the City Council decided earlier this year to form a nine-person charter review committee to study whether Bend should consider having an elected mayor. In addition to Teater, who was the chairman, that committee included former Mayor and City Councilor Bruce Abernethy and former Councilor Suzanne Johannsen. It also included Chuck Arnold, Ron Boozell, Bob Thomas, Don

Senecal, Mike Olin and Greg Fowler. Some other ideas that were discussed included whether the mayor position should pay more than other council positions and if it should be invested with more power. The committee’s report and findings are scheduled to be presented to the Bend City Council on July 20. If the council decides not to follow the committee’s recommendations, it can still go to voters to ask for amendments to the charter. Nick Grube can be reached at 541-633-2160 or at

Kirby Dallas Nagelhout November 17, 1955 – July 2, 2011

Fire Continued from C1 Penhollow said most offices of the Warm Springs government closed at 3 p.m. For residents, evacuations have been voluntary. As the fire spread, the state announced tightened fire restrictions in the Central Oregon district. “The warmer, drier and breezier weather is drying out the vegetation quickly,” said George Ponte, district forester with the Oregon Department of Forestry. “The Central Oregon District is currently experiencing high fire danger, and we expect it to bump up to extreme over the next few days.” Beginning at 6 a.m. Saturday, the state will enact regulated use restrictions on private and state lands protected by the Department of Forestry in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties.

landowner and employees of the landowner on their own land. • Drivers must have one shovel and one gallon of water, or one 21⁄2 -pound or larger fire extinguisher, while traveling in motorized vehicles in the forest. All-terrain vehicles and motorcycles must be equipped with an approved spark arrestor. • Chain saw use is prohibited between 1 and 8 p.m. Chain saw use is permitted at all other hours as long as one ax, one shovel and one eight-ounce or larger fire extinguisher nearby. A fire watch is also required at least one hour following the use of each saw. • Cutting, grinding and welding of metal is prohibited between 1 and 8 p.m. At all other times, the area is to be cleared of flammable vegetation and one ax, one shovel and one 21⁄2 -pound or larger fire extinguisher must be in the area. • Mowing of dry grass with power-driven equipment is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., except for the commercial culture and harvest of agricultural crops. • Any electric fence controller in use must be listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory or be certified by the Department of Consumer and Business Services and operated in compliance with manufacturer’s instructions.

After a long and courageous battle against cancer, Kirby Dallas Nagelhout, age 55, passed away July 2, 2011, at Hospice House in Bend, Oregon. Kirby was born November 17, 1955, in Breckenridge, Minnesota, to parents Kenneth and Jan Nagelhout. He was one of six children. The family lived in various locations in Minnesota and both Dakotas prior to their move to Springfield, Oregon, in 1965. At a very early age, Kirby was fascinated by what his father could produce simply with the aid of a hammer, a few nails, and some lumber, and the stage was set for what has become an extremely successful career as a general contractor in Central Oregon. As a youth, building small birdhouses led to the construction of a Soap Box Derby car, a backyard “hangout,” and eventually, following in his father’s footsteps, a Chambers Construction employee. Kirby graduated from Bend High School in 1974, and in 1977, he married Collene Kloos; they have a daughter, Hillary, and a son, Tyler. In 1986, he started Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company (KNCC) and area residents quickly took note of the “Nagelhout green” pickups and signs that began showing up everywhere. Over the years, his company has been honored by hundreds of organizations for both its work and Kirby’s generous philanthropy to the Central Oregon community. KNCC’s accomplishments, to name a few, include the Redmond airport terminal, Deschutes County Fairgrounds, Mt. Bachelor’s Pine Marten Lodge, Deschutes County Library, and many of the schools in the area. KNCC carries on Kirby’s legacy as a prominent leader in the Central Oregon region. In 2002, he married Cathy Guest. A few years ago, Kirby and Cathy moved to a house on the Deschutes River in Redmond, Oregon, where he worked from an office in their home and enjoyed woodworking in his shop and traveling. In 2010, he was named one of Bend High School’s outstanding student alums; his picture and commemorative plaque are displayed along with those of other honorees in the high school cafeteria. Kirby’s family will always lovingly remember the way he assumed the role of caring and generous family patriarch following his father’s death and the great admiration and respect he received from friends and associates in the business community. Survivors include Kirby’s wife, Cathy Nagelhout of Redmond; daughter, Hillary Paige Moor, her husband, Stephen, and their son, Kirby Daniel, of Redmond; son, Tyler Dallas Nagelhout, his wife, Kayla, and their son, Dallas Kirby, of Bend; mother, Jan Davis, of Eugene; sisters Vicki Young of Corvallis, Sheila Phillips of Eugene, Kimberley Nagelhout of Canby, and Heather Burton of Napa, CA; and, Welsh Corgis, Baxter and Joey. He was preceded in death by his father and one sister, Pamela Nagelhout. A public memorial service will be held at Bend Senior High School on Friday, July 15th 2011 at 1:00 PM. The family requests donations be made in Kirby’s memory to Deschutes Children’s Foundation (1010 NW 14th Street, Bend, OR 97701; 541-388-3101), Grandma’s House of Central Oregon, Inc. (PO Box 6372, Bend, OR, 97708; 541-383-3515) or, Partners In Care/Hospice House (2075 NE Wyatt Court #1, Bend, OR 97701; 541-382-5882). Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral Home is serving the family.
