Welcome Summertime. This one simple word evokes many happy memories. For me, in true Gen-X fashion, I recall songs like “Summertime” (Fresh Prince or Billie Holiday). I think about the barbecues and picnics I’ve shared with loved ones, road trips and hiking adventures I’ve taken with family, and outdoor sports I’ve played with my friends. I love the fact that Willamalane acts as a summer tour guide, offering virtually everything our community needs to take a big bite out of the best weather of the year. Pop this guide in your tote bag next to your beach towel and sunscreen. It’s overflowing with fun activities like summer camps for the kiddos, free concerts and movies, community celebrations, and much more. You’ll see that we are continuing our 75th anniversary celebration at all our facilities. Some special highlights include the annual Children’s Celebration (page 11) and the 30th anniversary of Splash! at Lively Park (page 31). We also want to make sure that you save the date for our big 75th Anniversary event on Sep. 29, from 12–6 p.m. This FREE event will be a celebration of our local community and a chance for us to show our appreciation to anyone who has supported Willamalane in the last 75 years. Willamalane Park will be transformed into a gathering of community, entertainment, food and drinks, attractions, and rides. Don’t miss the biggest event of the year! Summertime also means the launch of the popular 1PASS program. We’re collaborating with LTD and the City of Eugene to create a screaming deal for area youth: 1PASS lets youth ride LTD buses all summer long AND takes you to all the hottest recreation and educational spots in town for just $55! We will be kicking off this year’s 1PASS program with a special launch party on May 5 (page 9). Whether you walk, jog, cycle, drive or take an LTD bus, I hope to see you out at our parks, trails and events soon. Thank you for your continued support! Be well,

WELCOME ON THE COVER This season on our social media we asked for your opinion and you answered. By a 10% margin, “Generations of Summer” is our cover winner! Willamalane has come a long way since 1944. The district boundaries have expanded, the population has increased sixfold, and the program offerings have changed and adapted to meet community needs. But summertime? For kids it’s the same as it’s been for generations — school’s out and it’s time for fun and adventure. Whether they’re taking a dip to cool off, watching a movie in the park at twilight, sliding in to home plate, or playing tug-of-war at camp, we strive to be there for kids — helping them make memories, build skills, and stay healthy. It just goes to show: The more things change, the more they stay the same. We’re your district, and we want to hear your voice! Keep an eye out on social media for more opportunities to submit your votes and ideas to shape the future of the district.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT:

High Cascade Forest Volunteers DESPITE ALL OF the lulls that occurred across the country with the federal government shutdown, the Scorpion Crew continued their work. The Scorpion Crew is a part of the High Cascades Forest Volunteers who volunteer year-round to help the U.S. Forest Service maintain their trail system. These volunteers logged over 7,000 hours last year alone — all for free. They improved trail drainage, cut out downed trees from across trails, and built bridges to restore trails, especially after wildfires. This group loves to work hard and loves to be outside. When the federal government shutdown affected their ability to work on federal lands, they quickly sought out other opportunities to continue doing what they do. They reached out to Willamalane and were quickly getting busy helping staff address some issues along various trail systems. The Scorpion Crew started their work at Thurston Hills Natural Area removing over 60 non-native trees from areas adjacent to trails and used the material to block social trails. The crew improved drainage along the Thurston Hills Mossy Maple Trail and removed ivy from near the trailhead. After wrapping up their work at Thurston Hills, the crew shifted their attention to some trail improvements at Dorris Ranch. The crew quickly got busy building an extension of the Oak Trail (.25 miles) including building a 15-foot bridge to cross a drainage. In addition, a small sub crew assisted in removing small diameter trees from within the oak woodland to support Willamalane in their continued restoration of

these increasingly rare habitats. All said and done, the crew logged more than 335 hours supporting Willamalane in improving these trails for the users who love them. So take a hike and enjoy the results of their hard work!

Thurston Hills and the Gray Family Legacy BY JODIE DELSERE

LONG BEFORE IT was a natural area enjoyed by community hikers and mountain bikers, the Thurston Hills area was a pioneer homestead. Passed down through generations, the property tells a story of the entrepreneurial spirit and community values of the Gray family. Siblings Hugh Gray and Connie Jaqua, who sold the property to Willamalane in 2012, hoped that the sale would preserve the property as a recreational area rather than being transformed by development. In what follows, they recount stories of their family’s history on this land.

THE PATRIARCH

Frederick Lutanner Gray was the pioneer who originally settled the Thurston Hills. Frederick L. was born in 1831 to Alexander and Lydia Gray. His early life was spent in Pennsylvania and his teen years in Indiana. In 1849, when Frederick L. was 18, the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in California sparked a gold rush. The lure of the West called Frederick L. to be a wagon train scout, which occupied his time for several years.

Frederick L. liked the Thurston area, and he decided in 1853 to stake a claim in what is now Thurston Hills Natural Area. The property spanned about 1,000 acres and stretched from the hills down to what is now Thurston Road. The deed was signed by none other than Abraham Lincoln. Hugh Gray and Connie Jaqua said they saw the signature in person, but the deed was lost when the property transferred ownership in the 1970s. Frederick L. married Olive Davis, and together they had eight children. The family’s first house burned down in the early 1860s. Their second house, which still stands today, was built in 1865 using timber that came from the hills. That house is now known as the Heritage House. The Grays were considered a successful family. They grew grain on the property’s flat ground that was fertilized by intermittent flooding. They also raised cattle and pigs. “They always had bacon curing,” said Hugh Gray. “They did all the homesteading things that those early pioneers and ranchers did.” Frederick L. Gray died in July of 1915 at

the age of 84. He and his family members are buried at Mount Vernon Pioneer Cemetery. Much of the land went to his son, Frederick James Gray. continued on next page

Gray Family Legacy continued THE GRAY FAMILY

Frederick J. took on the homestead, where he lived with his wife Sarah Maude Hastings and their five children: Veda, Hubert, Frederick J. Jr., Elva and Lloyd. “Like so many families at that time, the property was split among the children when Frederick J. died,” said Connie Jaqua. Veda, born in 1899, was a school teacher. She was among the first teachers of the Davis School, which became part of the Thurston School District in 1927. She lived at the Heritage House for most of her life. Hubert, born in 1901, contributed to a number of local history and genealogical publications. He married Flossie May Gray and together had three children: Glenda, Hugh and Connie. The property that passed to Hugh and Connie was eventually sold to Willamalane. Frederick James Jr., also known as Freddy, was born in 1902. Freddy was murdered in the woods at the age of 42, leaving behind his wife Elsie and their daughter Darlene Larson. Elva, born in 1905, was a secretary for a lawyer. She lived with her older sister Veda in their father’s Heritage House until Veda’s death. Elva and her niece Darlene were close, and Elva transferred ownership of her property to Darlene at age 98. Elva died in 2010 at age 105. Lloyd, born in 1912, was Frederick J.’s youngest child. He married Julia May Gray and died in 1991 at age 79.

FAMILY STORIES

Hugh Gray and Connie Jaqua were raised on tales passed down from their great-grandfather Frederick L.’s time. When the siblings were young, they discovered artifacts like arrowheads all around the Thurston Hills property. “There’s a lot of treasure there if you can find it,” said Hugh Gray. They learned that Native Americans had lived in the Thurston Hills when Frederick L. settled there. They had established living spaces in clearings, and they picked blackberries and fished for salmon for sustenance. Sometimes, land disputes among settlers led to brutal instances of pioneer problem resolution. Hugh and Connie recounted a story from the late 1880s of a property dispute. “A neighbor was setting a fence line that old Frederick didn’t agree with,” Hugh Gray said. “And back then, the only things that mattered were their property and their access to water.” The disagreement resulted in the neighbor stabbing Frederick L. with a long knife. Thinking that Frederick was mortally wounded, the neighbor journeyed to the sheriff to report that he had killed Frederick in a fair fight.

Frederick’s body was laid in front of the grieving family. “Next thing you know, he moves just a little,” said Hugh Gray. The knife was removed from his body, and Frederick started to come around. “These old guys were tough — and lucky,” he said. The neighbor was scared that Frederick seemed to have come back to life and got out of town just as fast as he could.

PRESERVATION OF THE LAND

Hugh Gray and Connie Jaqua’s father, Hubert, logged the hill — very responsibly, they said. “He still wanted it to look like a forest even though it was thinned,” Hugh said. The forest was thinned five or six times, but when the land was sold to Willamalane, it contained more board feet than it had 20 years prior. “When you keep thinning the timber, you have a viable stand for generations,” he said. If the family had let nature take its course, the trees might have become overcrowded. Then, the rotting trees would have become a fire hazard for Springfield as it developed toward the east. Hugh and Connie remember their father as a hard-working, diligent man who “loved the land and respected the land,” Connie said. Environmental responsibility was a strong family value that was passed to Glenda, Hugh and Connie. The three siblings grew up playing on the land. Their father built them a little hunting cabin furnished with old, discarded furniture and a nice little cook stove. “Our time at that hunting cabin yielded a lot of venison and good camping trips,” Hugh said. These memories, and many others, contributed to Hugh and Connie deciding to sell the property to Willamalane rather than to housing developers. Darlene Larson, Hugh and Connie’s cousin, sold her piece of land, including the Heritage House, to the City of Springfield in 2012 in the hopes that it would become a historic location. Hugh and Connie followed suit by selling their property to Willamalane to be made into the Thurston Hills Natural Area. “We got to walk past all the places that were important to us, all the landings,” said Hugh Gray. Their sister, Glenda Gray-Cook, died before the transactions were made. “We scattered her ashes on the clearing where the hunting cabin used to stand,” he said. As Hugh and Connie reflect on the last 150 years of the Thurston Hills land, they also consider its future. In a hundred years, they said, they hope the natural area will remain intact and enjoyed by Springfielders and visitors alike. “Our pioneer great-grandfather started all this, and we’ve hung on to the land for all these years,” Connie Jaqua said. “We hope it will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.”

Making Waves

THE HISTORY OF SPLASH! AT LIVELY PARK

BY BRYAN BEBAN

A

s Willamalane Park and Recreation District celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, one of its major facilities is observing a birthday of its own. Splash! at Lively Park turns 30 years old this August. A revolutionary achievement when it was completed, Splash! was the only indoor wave pool west of the Mississippi River when it opened in 1989. In 1978, Willamalane asked residents of east Springfield to annex into the district. When they agreed, one of the things that those Thurston-area patrons requested was their own aquatics facility. The long drive to the then-Willamalane Pool was cumbersome for many, and they felt that they had the population base to support a second pool. In November 1986, Willamalane placed an adventurous $5.4 million dollar bond measure in front of Springfield voters to fund the construction of what would initially be named the Lively Park Swim Center, and for a complete renovation of the Willamalane Pool. By this time, the original facility, built in 1952, was showing serious wear, and the extraordinary award-winning Lamella roof structure, added in 1964, needed to be replaced. The bond measure passed. Barely. Of the 13,662 votes cast in the general election, the measure passed by only 712 votes. With cash in hand and a vote of confidence from area residents, initial work began on what would become a state-ofthe-art, 6,900 square-foot activity pool. The district — led by Superintendent Daniel Plaza, Leisure Services Director Ken Long, Aquatics Program Manager Steve Cable, and Pool Operator Quentin Hogan — developed a request for proposal to hire a construction firm to build the facility. The job was awarded to local firm Hyland Construction, who came in with a winning $4.01 million dollar bid. Hyland was the low bid from among six competing companies. The architecture firm was Robertson/Sherwood Architects under

the direction of Jim Robertson and Carl Sherwood. Their design featured not only the wave pool itself, which could produce waves up to four feet, but also would include a six-lane, 25-yard lap pool, a toddler recreation pool, a Jacuzzi-style hot tub, a family pool, and a massive 136-foot water slide. The pools themselves would also be lined with ceramic tile versus just painting the pool bottoms. This would reduce the number of maintenance closures throughout the year, which would maintain schedules and keep patrons from being inconvenienced. In addition to these amenities, Lively Park Swim Center would offer its guests changing rooms with lockers and showers, four family changing rooms, a concessions stand, and a community room that area residents could rent for children’s parties, events, and meetings. The total site capacity would be more than 1,000 people. However, there were financial roadblocks as the project progressed. The project cost ballooned to $5.1 million dollars, more than a million dollars over the original bid from Hyland Construction. This forced Willamalane officials and Robertson/Sherwood to re-adjust their plans for the facility and make hard decisions about which amenities to ultimately remove from the project. It was decided that the water slide ($83,000), two lanes of the lap pool ($95,000) and the toddler recreation pool ($40,000) would be removed to allow the project to stay on track for an August 1989 opening. When district officials adopted the 1988-89 budget, there was a 6% increase in the tax base as a result of rapid Springfield population growth. This allowed planners to restore two lanes of the lap pool that had been eliminated from the project as well as bringing back the ceramic tile finish to the four planned pools. Additionally, to fill in the gap, aquatics leaders decided to eliminate the longstanding policy of allowing senior citizens to swim free of charge at Willamalane Pool. Seniors were asked at the time to leave a suggested donation of 50 cents, which in actuality hovered around 30 cents per visit. Beginning on June 1, 1988, patrons 55 and over were now required to pay 75 cents per pool visit, a fee that was equal to the youth rate at the time. This added income helped fund the wave pool project. A couple of final pieces to the amenity puzzle were solved when continued on next page

WILLAMALANE PARK AND RECREATION DISTRICT • 541-736-4544 • willamalane.org | 31


Making Waves continued Gwen Lively, widow of the late Jack B. Lively, the facility’s namesake, donated $40,000 in June 1988 through the Lively Fund to restore the toddler recreation pool and $30,000 in April 1989 to complete the water slide project. The chairman of the Lively Fund at the time was longtime superintendent of Willamalane, Gary Walker. Jack B. Lively was instrumental to the growth of the district having been Willamalane’s legal counsel for many years. His son John was a member of the Willamalane Foundation Board of Directors, and served as a Springfield city councilor and mayor. He continues to serve his hometown as a member of the Oregon House of Representatives representing District 12. The first of more than 300,000 gallons of water began flowing with a pool filling hand-off ceremony on May 30, 1989 between representatives of the manufacturer, Whitewater West Industries of Richmond, British Columbia, Canada and Quentin Hogan from Willamalane’s Facilities department. Willamalane took ownership of the Lively Park Swim Center on July 1, 1989, but not before an unfortunate incident leading up to a media event on June 10. Just five minutes before the local media was to see the wave pool operate for the first time, bearings in one of the two main motors burned out and caused the facility to fill with black smoke. Having cleared that hurdle, a number of soft openings with community groups were staged in the month leading up to the dedication to allow the system to work out any bugs and for the staff to handle the enormous influx of visitors. The facility was officially dedicated on Aug. 8, 1989 and opened to the public later that day with 475 paying customers enjoying the first session. At the dedication ceremony, Superintendent Daniel Plaza and Gwen Lively cut the ribbon. After the ribbon was cut, Lively turned to ceremoniously swing open the front doors — and

she found they were locked. Plaza, after telling the crowd not to worry, opened the doors with his keys. That success has led to many more. The facility was immediately honored with the 1989 National Waterpark Safety Award by the World Waterpark Association, and Lively Park Swim Center claimed the award again in 1990. In the first six months of operation, concessions profits exceeded the entire fiscal year 1989-90 forecast. Admission fees, locker rentals and facility rental were all more than 70 percent of forecast during the same time period. The facility also proved to be a tourism powerhouse. Of the total visitors in its first year of operation, more than two-thirds were outof-district. In fact, 37 percent came to the wave pool from outside of Lane County. Most of those came from Corvallis, Albany, and Salem; many more came from the Portland metropolitan area. In its initial campaign, Lively Park Swim Center netted a $72,000 profit. Currently, the facility offers longer play swim sessions than traditional pools in the area, and it provides access to patrons who enjoy wading in the wave pool near the zero-depth entry, as well as patrons who enjoy riding the waves in tubes in the seven-foot area. Splash! is the home of the Thurston High School swim team, the Willamalane Fourth Grade Swim Lessons program that includes all fourth graders in Springfield, water fitness classes, school field trips, and community swim lessons. It also hosts birthday parties both inside the community room and party deck and outside in Lively Park’s two covered pavilions that can accommodate up to 300 guests. Averaging more than 150,000 visitors per year, Splash! at Lively Park promises to continue to be a high-quality destination for residents of Springfield — and from the entire region — for years to come.

Longtime Aquatics Manager Retires After a professional aquatics career spanning five decades, Willamalane Aquatics Program Manager Christine Crutcher decided to swim her last lap and announced her retirement, effective April 5. The Colorado native has been involved with

Willamalane since 1989, and she has been a full-time member of the recreation staff in a supervisory role since 1999. While in junior high school, Crutcher began working a 14-year span at the hot springs pool at the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort in Glenwood Springs, Colorado where she was a swim instructor. She then added lifeguarding to her skills and worked summers throughout high school and college. An alumna of the University of Northern Colorado, Crutcher received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education with the dream of working in the aquatics industry and working with and training young people. After relocating to Eugene in 1977, Crutcher managed the River Road Pool for the River Road Park and Recreation District for 12 years and became involved in water fitness programming and instructor training. Crutcher joined Willamalane on a limited basis in 1989 during the opening of Splash! at Lively Park. After working in marketing for an aquatics fitness company during the 1990s, Crutcher joined Willamalane full time as a supervisor in 1999.

BY BRYAN BEBAN

Hired by Aquatics Program Manager Steve Cable, Crutcher helped push Willamalane to make the two district pools more adult-oriented as the population base headed into retirement. She also changed the offerings at Splash! at Lively Park and increased facility rentals with birthday parties and with the addition of rentals in the two covered shelters behind the pool. As a way to promote those shelters, Crutcher established PetFest, a vendor and agency-based pet event that’s held at Lively Park each September. A lover of all things furry, Crutcher, along with former Superintendent Bob Keefer, modeled the event after a similar one in Bend. The event also showcased an often forgotten piece of Lively Park, the Jack B. Lively Dog Park, that has become extremely popular over the years. Christine and her husband John will continue to reside in Eugene, and in their spare time, they enjoy taking their dog CeeCee to the coast for walks on the beach. We thank and congratulate Christine on a wonderful career and more than 20 years with Willamalane.

Runner’s Guide to Willamalane by Kenny Weigandt

I

Willamalane paths and trails and kept a running journal of my guess you can technically call me a runner, experiences. Depending on what I was looking for on the day but that’s pretty generous. In reality, I’m a of, Willamalane checked just about every box. I found flat trails, hills, different types of running surfaces, and a fantastic variety of past my prime “athlete” with two young kids scenery. While it was hard to narrow the list, I put together my top that I love to blame for my being out of shape. five favorite Willamalane running spots. This year I faced a painful reality check when my six year old challenged me to a footrace and MILL RACE PATH WHERE YOU CAN ACCESS THIS PATH: it was an all-out struggle. I won the race (there 307 S. 5th St, Springfield 3202 Jasper Rd., Springfield was an alleged shove, which I adamantly deny), MILES LOGGED ON MY RUN: 4 but I was so exhausted at the finish line that I almost blacked out. That was the “get yourself in HIGHLIGHTS: Flat, no traffic, provides a mix of natural, urban and industrial scenery shape” red flag that I desperately needed. IDEAL MUSICAL PAIRING: “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen

While I’m more of a slogger (slow jogger) these days, I genuinely enjoy running. I’ll occasionally train for a long race, but I’m usually looking for runs in the 3–7 mile range to punish my legs and give my brain an escape. At this stage of life, my biggest challenge is balancing my slogging time with family life. Turns out, these kids that I’m so fond of are a gigantic time suck! That means that convenience and quick access to safe trails is essential when I’m picking running routes. Since I’m lucky enough to live and work in Springfield, I have easy access to a series of parks, paths and trails that are maintained by Willamalane. With more than 29 miles of Willamalane running paths at my disposal, I’m all out of excuses. It’s time to run! Over the last month, I ran almost every available mile of

5

If you’re on the hunt for a super convenient 2–5 miler, the Mill Race Path is stellar. It’s a flat, paved path that runs from downtown Springfield all the way to the Middle Fork path system. I hopped on the trail at the Jasper Road Trailhead and ran an out and back to the Booth-Kelly Trailhead near downtown. The path is unique because it offers a natural landscape on one side and working sawmills on the other. While it might sound strange, running through the steam of a sawmill is awesome, as you’ll definitely feel some Springfield pride. Plus, for any Stallone fans out there, you’ll catch some very real Rocky training scene vibes when you’re passing the mills. The Springsteen was banging in the headphones and I threw up a single fist during this run.

THURSTON HILLS NATURAL AREA

WHERE YOU CAN ACCESS THIS TRAIL:

7575 McKenzie Hwy., Springfield MILES LOGGED ON MY RUN: 5

HIGHLIGHTS: Beautiful scenery, tree cover,

winding hills (if you’re into that kind of thing)

IDEAL MUSICAL PAIRING: “Ain’t No Mountain

High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

If you’re a crazy person and like running hills, Thurston Hills Natural Area is your best pal. I’m not a huge fan of running hills because I’m a weakling that doesn’t enjoy pain. That said, it’s great for the lungs and on the rare occurrence where I choose this struggle, I’d better be rewarded with a gorgeous trail. In that respect, Thurston Hills Natural Area absolutely delivers. This sucker offers a beautifully manicured trail that winds through miles of tree-covered hills. Best of all, there are separate trails for runners/hikers and mountain bikers. That means you can get all the benefits of a stellar trail run without the fear of becoming road kill. What’s most impressive about Thurston Natural Hills Area is how easy it is to access. Usually when I’m craving a mountain-style trail run it means I need to take a long drive. With the main trailhead being at the edge of the Thurston community, it’s incredibly convenient to access.

MIDDLE FORK PATH

I’m a waver when I run, and I went 14 for 15 on return waves. I’m pretty sure the only non-waver was just overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the river that they forgot to wave back (at least that’s what I told myself). Regardless, it was a gorgeous jaunt and it came complete with a restroom and water stop at my Dorris Ranch turnaround. For somebody who hadn’t run that far in a few years, those benefits were very welcome.

Greenway (another Willamalane jogging path). The Willamette River was in full view at Island Park and the West D Greenway and they connected me directly to Pre’s Trail. Once I was running with Pre, I enjoyed the glorious joint-forgiving bark path until I reached Autzen Stadium. I threw my “O,” wheezed out a “Go Ducks!” and jogged the same route back to Island Park. For any Duck or track fan, this is no doubt a bucket list run.

Lee Fields & The Expressions

Pre’s Trail is a nationally renowned running trail, and for good reason. Not only is it impeccably maintained and offers miles of bark paths that make your knees go “ahhhhh,” but it was built as a lasting tribute to one of the greatest Oregon athletes to ever live, Steve Prefontaine. For a running nerd like me, goosebumps hit me every time I run his trail. Another fantastic thing about Pre’s Trail — you can access it from multiple locations in Eugene and Springfield. Since I live in Springfield, I started my run at Island Park and ran along the river toward the West D

I’ll admit that I’m biased, but I sincerely believe that Dorris Ranch is one of the greatest parks on the planet. When you arrive, you’re instantly met with the historic Tomseth House and the Dorris Ranch Barn that set the stage for a quaint, serene setting. Once inside the park, you have two main options to start your run: the Middle Fork Path (see above) or you can head past the barn and explore on the Gary Walker trail system. Within Dorris Ranch, there are 10 different loops, all of which offer something unique. It’s essentially the running version of a “choose your own adventure” novel, which is amazing for anyone who battles running boredom (aka this guy). When I ran at Dorris Ranch, I started with the main loop which netted about 2.5 miles. I ran past an old pump house, the Willamette River, through filbert orchards, and into a short, forested stretch before I popped out on the Middle Fork Path which took me back to the park entrance. The running surfaces went from packed gravel to manicured trail, both of which felt great on these old knees. Since I needed to log about four miles for the day, I hopped on another trail that took me through more filbert orchards and into a deeper, wooded section before I ended up by the river. On this loop, I also had a monumental footrace with a massive gray squirrel that was surely the talk of all Dorris Ranch wildlife. I got smoked by that speedy beast, but after I get myself in better shape I’m coming back for a rematch. I can’t say enough good things about Dorris Ranch. Whether you’re looking to run long or short, it’s an incredible escape for runners or walkers of all abilities. Thanks for reading, friends. If you see me struggling along out there, I always love a wave!

Clearwater Park 2400 Clearwater Ln., Springfield

MILES LOGGED ON MY RUN: 8

HIGHLIGHTS: Flat, no traffic, river views,

provides plenty of viewpoints, and wildlife

IDEAL MUSICAL PAIRING: “Wildflowers” by

Tom Petty

The Middle Fork Path and the Mill Race Path are part of the same paved path system, but they offer wildly different running experiences. While the Mill Race Path offers some urban and industrial appeal, the Middle Fork Path is more of a nature lover’s paradise. Most of the path runs along the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, and there’s no shortage of breathtaking views along the way. When I tackled this run, I was in the mood for a longer, slower run. I started my journey at Clearwater Park and meandered all the way to Dorris Ranch and back. All told, I logged about 8 miles and every inch of it was peaceful. Bonus points for the Middle Fork Path: despite a rainy day, everyone I encountered seemed to be in a great mood!

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT:

LORRY FRENCH

LORRY FRENCH’S SMILE lights up the back row of the Thursday oil painting classes at the Adult Activity Center. Behind him, a window streams light that makes the lively colors on his palette shine. The canvas in front of him depicts a Kinkadian view of a mill in autumn, with glowing red-orange leaves offsetting the blue-green of the water. This piece is many hours in the making: “At least 12 weeks of three-hour classes,” Lorry said, “Plus the time I spend at home.” Lorry’s painterly journey began in high school, when he first began to dabble in art. Then he took a break — for 50 years. The hobby re-entered his life 17 years ago when he began taking oil painting classes at the Adult Activity Center. He’s been hooked ever since. “These are all fantastic people,” Lorry said. “They’re all friendly. They’re willing to share information and suggest ways to accomplish what you’re looking for.” He particularly enjoys advice from longtime instructor Gloria Tinker. “She just nails it,” he said. “It puts just the right twist in the painting.” Lorry is looking forward to the moment, after he lets his painting rest a couple weeks, when he can apply the finishing coat. “It blends the colors out, and you look like you’re in the picture,” he said. Then he’ll start fresh on a new painting. Next time, he thinks he’ll do a frozen waterfall, building up from gray-white base colors all the way up to tiny brush-stroke details. “It’s all in the little things,” he said. “It makes it sparkle.” — Jodie Delsere

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT:

BARBARA LAND

BARBARA LAND TELLS a funny story about visiting the Adult Activity Center decades ago. “I had just turned 65,” she said, “and they tried to run me out of the dance class. They said I wasn’t old enough to be there!” Many years on, she is still visiting the Adult Activity Center — not to dance, these days, though she does glide gracefully around the building in her wheelchair. “When you’re in a wheelchair,” she said, “Anything is better than sitting at home.” She busies her hands in games of cribbage. She volunteers her 33-year background in secretarial services in helping with mailings. She reads curiously, selecting books by unknown authors and polishing off a book every two days. She enjoys meals with friends. Transportation services have been crucial in getting Barbara to her social engagements for more than 20 years. “I use the van service just about every day I come in,” she said. “It’s convenient because it picks me up close to my apartment, and it drops me off at the same place. I don’t have to worry about getting home.” As she is such an integral part of the Adult Activity Center community, it’s hard to imagine cajoling her out of a class. Instead, we intend to make our services as accessible as possible so we can enjoy her company as much as we can. — Jodie Delsere

Bienvenidos Verano. Esta simple palabra evoca muchos recuerdos alegres. Para mí, en el auténtico estilo de la generación X, recuerdo canciones como “Summertime” (Fresh Prince o Billie Holiday). Pienso en las parrilladas y picnics que compartí con seres queridos, las aventuras de viajes y caminatas que hice con la familia y los deportes al aire libre que jugué con mis amigos. Me encanta el hecho de que Willamalane actúa como guía turístico, ofreciendo virtualmente todo lo que necesita nuestra comunidad para aprovechar el mejor clima del año. Tome esta guía de su bolso de mano, que está al lado de la toalla de playa y el protector solar. Dicha guía está repleta de actividades divertidas como campamentos de verano para niños, conciertos y películas gratis, celebraciones comunitarias y mucho más. Verá que estamos continuando nuestra celebración del 75o aniversario en todos nuestros centros. Algunos eventos especiales destacados incluyen la celebración anual de los niños (página 83) y ¡el 30o aniversario de Splash! en el Lively Park (página 31). El verano también significa el lanzamiento del popular programa 1PASS. Estamos colaborando con el Distrito de Tránsito de Lane (LTD) y la Ciudad de Eugene para crear una gran oportunidad para la juventud de la zona: 1PASS deja que los jóvenes viajen todo el verano en el transporte público de LTD Y ¡lo lleva a todos los lugares más populares de recreación y educacionales por solo $55! Arrancaremos el programa 1PASS de este año con una fiesta especial de lanzamiento el 5 de mayo (página 82). Ya sea que camine, trote, ande en bicicleta, maneje o tome un autobús de LTD, espero verle pronto en nuestros parques, caminos y eventos. ¡Gracias por su apoyo constante! Le deseo que esté bien,
