hank you Jacksonville! It’s hard to believe this July issue marks my 5-year anniversary as Publisher of the Review. When Jo and I bought the paper in 2008, we never imagined how ingrained we would become in the community and how much owning a newspaper would change our point of view on the very importance of “community.” Over the last five years, many people have helped make this publication Our first issue! become more “magazine” than “newspaper,” which was my vision when we took over from Carolyn Kingsnorth. Publishing the Review is possible thanks to our contributing writers who share their expertise, insight and passion AND our local business owners who advertise and provide the financial support necessary. I am most grateful to our monthly readers who return the favor by keeping their dollars here in town and support so many local businesses. Five years ago, we began with the “end in mind,” and have made changes and upgrades along the way, invested in new technology and printing processes, launched an incredible website (JacksonvilleReview.com) and Facebook site, and introduced our digital information kiosk in the Beekman Bank. More to come! I have learned so much from so many in the community and in no particular order, would like to

Victorian Hobbies & Quilts: Beekman House Reopens with a Jacksonville History Day
Also on display will be a ‘shadow box’— another Victorian hobby—that tells a little bit of history from when crazy quilts were so popular. “It mentions Rebecca Lodge,” Mathern comments,” and it may be a reference to the Jacksonville Independent Order of Odd Fellows.” At 2:00pm Mathern will be doing a ‘bed turning’ that showcases quilts with interesting histories. Significant quilts from the Jacksonville guild’s collection will be stacked on a bed, and Mathern will talk about each quilt before turning it down and sharing a story about the next one. “I always like to have a surprise at the end, and I have a doozy of surprise this time!” she assures. Mathern will also display her feed sack collection from the days when feed sacks were made out of cotton prints. “We have a feed sack quilt and a little girl’s dress made out of a feed sack— they both have chickens on them and they’re just darling,” she enthuses. “And we’ll have a handmade ladies feed sack dress which I’ve worn several times when we’ve toured in our Model A Ford. You needed four feed sacks to make a ladies house dress—six if you wanted to make a matching dress for your daughter.” Mathern will also be showing handquilting techniques, and Joedy Kimmel will be demonstrating appliqué. Kimmel is the guild member who organizes the Jacksonville Museum Quilters’ annual Opportunity Quilt. The 2013 Opportunity Quilt, named the ‘Jacksonville Album’, uses patterns created by Virginia Robertson. “It’s what’s called a ‘Baltimore quilt’,” Mathern explains, “and it’s hand appliquéd and quilted. The design dates back to 1864 and the Civil War. Baltimore, Maryland ladies were famous for making these quilts. Each of our guild members made one of the blocks then we all hand quilted it. We’ll be selling raffle tickets on the quilt—$1 each, 6 for $5, or 30 for $20. The drawing will be the following week on July 20.” “Victorian Hobbies" is the first of three events planned for the Beekman House this summer. The House will again be open from 12noon to 4:00pm on Saturday, August 10 and Saturday, September 14. “August tours will focus on Victorian Music and Literature and the September theme will be Travel in the Victorian Age,” says Kingsnorth. “We’re coordinating with the second Saturday tours offered by the Friends of Jacksonville’s Historic Cemetery to make it a ‘Jacksonville History Day’. Visitors can learn about Jacksonville Scandals, Early Business Leaders, and Mysteries and Myths during the 10:00am cemetery tours, have lunch at one of Jacksonville’s great restaurants, and then learn more about life in the Victorian era at the Beekman House.” Beekman House volunteer coordinator Stephanie Butler weighs in. “At the Beekman House, we’re offering everyone the enriching experience of understanding the family and the pioneer experience. The Beekmans helped establish the foundation of the communities we live in today. They were leaders, advocates and engaged citizens, and we are excited about sharing their legacy along with the stories of their lives and times.” The C.C. Beekman House is located at 470 E. California Street in Jacksonville. Parking is available on-site. Victorian Hobby tours are $4 for adults, $2 for seniors and students; lawn activities are free. For additional information, call 541-899-1231, ext. 312, or e-mail events@jacksonvilleor.us.

Providing Professional Real Estate Locally For 23 Years

razy quilt pillows made by Julia Beekman and a Victorian crazy quilt that once belonged to Ginger Rogers will be two featured items when the Jacksonville Museum Quilters and the City of Jacksonville celebrate the official reopening of the 1873 Cornelius C. Beekman House on Saturday, July 13. This popular Jacksonville attraction, home to Jacksonville’s most prominent pioneer family and still completely furnished with family artifacts, has been closed to the public since January while undergoing extensive repairs. The House now boasts a new roof and restored entry porch thanks to funding provided by the Jacksonville Heritage Society. The July 13th special event marking the House’s reopening includes a ribbon cutting by Jacksonville Mayor Paul Becker at 12:00noon followed by Victorian-themed house tours from noon to 4:00pm. Costumed docents will talk about Victorian hobbies and the Beekmans’ personal collections and crafts. The Quilters will host an “airing of the quilts,” hanging quilts from the House balcony, in the House and Carriage House, on clotheslines, and along the picket fences. “Even after the Industrial Revolution and the introduction of the sewing machine, quilting remained a popular pastime for women,” Carolyn Kingsnorth, one of the event coordinators, explains. “At quilting parties—bees they were called—women could socialize without being considered idle. There are several utilitarian quilts that Julia Beekman made—she was an excellent seamstress—and her crazy quilt pillows are gorgeous!” Crazy quilts are a combination of silk and velvet patchwork embellished with fancy stitching—a way for women to express their aesthetic sense and whimsy while having an attractive and useful product to show for it. “In the 1890s, people became obsessed with crazy quilts,” Kingsnorth elaborates. “Some women even masqueraded as dry goods dealers to get silk sample books from textile manufacturers so they could add to their store of patches. Others raided the jacket linings of their fathers and brothers. Crazy quilts were part quilt, part scavenger hunt, and for many the search for scraps was as much a part of the fun as the construction of the quilt.” The Victorian crazy quilt that belonged to Ginger Rogers was given to her when she was a young actress. “Her mother gave it to the Rogue Art Gallery,” says Nell Mathern, the Jacksonville Museum Quilters guild member organizing the quilt displays. “Robbie Collins (the individual credited with preserving Jacksonville and establishing the National Historic Landmark District) bought it and gave it to the Quilters. “Whoever made it really liked horses,” she laughs. “There’s a lot of horse stuff on it including an 1892 ribbon from some horse race along with other horse and race details. And it has loads of fancy stitches.”

On Sunday’s from 10:00am-2:00pm, the Jacksonville Farmers Market is THE place to shop for the best and freshest local produce available! Held on the historic Courthouse lawn, dozens of vendors offer the finest produce, breads, eggs, cheese, meat, baked goods, honey, olive oils, prepared foods and more. Now in its third year of operation, the Jacksonville Farmers Market has caught the attention of locals, many of whom now include a stop at the market on their mandatory “to-do” list on Sunday through October. The vast majority of produce available at the Sunday market is grown at Hanley Farm, meaning your food travels a couple of miles, not hundreds as is the case with most grocery store produce. The J’Ville Farmers Market includes a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, as well. Both the market and CSA are operated by Nick Mahood and his partner Elizabeth Worcester. They are fortunate to be working alongside Elizabeth’s parents, Chad and Lea Worcester who provide marketing, business and communications support. Well-known local chef and foodie Kristen Lyon is also a member of the farm team, running the Farmers Market’s

Jacksonville Review
kitchen and assisting with a host of other duties. This year, Nick and Elizabeth have been joined by fellow farmers Emma Abby and Kurt Holmes, who are helping them farm the 2-acre Hanley Farm plot and helping care for a multitude of goats, sheep and donkeys on 20 acres of Hanley Farm pasture land. This year, several new farm vendors including Little Heathen Honey and Lara Knackstedt's Rogue Olive Oils, will be at the Sunday Market, joining Coquette Bakery, By George Farm, Colluna’s Kitchen/Walker Creek Farm, Salant Family Ranch, and others. 2013 market-goers will also find a larger selection of fine crafters and artists offering fiber arts, garments, gourd art, home-baked dog treats, soaps, hand-crafted cutlery, fine art photography, knitted items, plants, raw foods, wood and metal arts, cards and more. For those unable to shop at the Sunday Market, Nick and Elizabeth offer a weekly CSA pick-up program—full shares are $600 and half shares are $400 and may be picked up at Hanley Farm Stand on Saturdays. They also offer and operate the Hanley Farm Stand, located on the grounds of Hanley Farm, open Saturday’s 10:00am-2:00pm. For more information on the CSA Program, Sunday Market or Hanley Farm Stand, visit JacksonvilleFarmersMarket.com.

Jacksonville’s Fabulous Farmers Market

Focus on Hanley Farm by
Kerri Hecox, Hanley Farm Volunteer
Rogue Saturday Nights
n Saturday, June 7th, Hanley Farm saw a fantastic turnout, 1700 people, for “Brews, Burgers and Bluegrass,” the kick-off for Beer Week in the Rogue Valley. The event was sponsored by Thrive, a nonprofit agency dedicated to sustainability in the local economy. The event also served as a kick-off for a new music series at Hanley, “Rogue Saturday Nights.” The farm is excited to be featuring local musicians, along with, of course, farm-fresh organic food and local beers and wines. The first RSN concert will be July 13th, and feature Patchy Sanders, an up-and-coming folk and bluegrass band. On August 10th, two bands, Sweetgrass and 3 Little Birds, will bring a Hawaiian bluegrass and reggaeinspired groove, and September 14th, The Bear Creek Band will bring its own blend of American roots music with a contemporary twist. The events all begin at 5:30pm and go until the evening winds down at 9:00pm. Kristen Lyon and her Farm Kitchen will be serving burgers and other fare straight from the farm, and local beer and wine will be sold. Come out for an evening of good music and good food in the shade of ancient walnut trees! Tickets are $10 at the door or online at www.sohs.org.

O

Also in July, we will be continuing our popular Origins: A Discovery of Place, dinner series. On Saturday July 27th we will host “Peter Britt, the Archeology of a Renaissance Man,” with a rare showing of the Peter Britt negatives, and a talk by noted archeologist, Chelsea Rose. Even more exciting, the 4-course meal will be inspired by the actual archeology dig at the Britt site, with foods that were common on the Britt dinner table. This will be an extraordinary dinner, and should not be missed. Tickets for the evening are $65 for non-SOHS members and $50 for members, and are available at www.sohs.org or by calling 541-773-6536, ext. 1002. New also this year are two summer camps in conjunction with Rogue Valley Farm to School. From July 8-12, children ages 7-10 can spend a week on the farm learning through hands-on activities about life on the farm. August 5-9 will be the camp for 5-7 year-olds. Camps run from 9:00am-1:00pm and are $175/week. These will be exciting, hands-in-the-earth weeks for kids, and a truly unique opportunity. There is still room left, so get your children signed-up at www.rvfarm2school.org. Please see the Hanley Farm July Events Schedule on our calendar page.

Hanley Farm Offers a “Rocking” Family Fun Event
Rock and jewelry fans will have plenty to do on July 28 from 11:00am3:00pm when Hanley Farm hosts rock enthusiasts from the Crater Rock Museum and the Roxy Ann Gem & Mineral Society. Society members will be on the grounds to display and sell lapidary works of art, polished slabs, jewelry, beautiful gems and minerals—all unique, one-of-a-kind works of art ordinarily found at the museum. While spending time enjoying rocks and gems, guests are invited to enjoy another gem—the Hanley Farm House and grounds. Guests are encouraged to relax with a picnic lunch on the grounds and see heritage livestock, featuring Icelandic sheep, Toggenburg goats, chickens and “Bob the Peacock.” The Hanley Farm Stand will also be open, offering fresh, farm-grown produce. Plus, the Hanley farmhouse will be open for tours. For the kids, turnof-the-century games and special crafts will also be offered! Historic Hanley Farm is located at 1053 Hanley Road, Central Point. For more information, please contact Pamela Sasseen at 541-608-8091.

Speaking of Antiquing with Joelle Graves, Sterling Creek Antiques

I

A Very Personal Story
you know the Stiffel Lamp Company and Dinkelspiel Furniture?” “Yes…I sure do… my father-in-law sold it at The Country Store in Belmont, California,” I told her. And that was the beginning of our business relationship, mutual admiration and budding friendship. Joanne Beneventi, the daughter of Edwin Cole, lives in Pioneer Village—she retired here from Illinois a few years ago to live closer to her son and his family. Her father, Edwin Cole began his professional career as an architect. In the 1920’s, he was a building designer before turning his full attention to interior design and furnishings in the 1930’s. In the following years, Cole worked with the greatest names in the architectural and interior decorating professions and was the subject of numerous national and international articles featuring his work. He designed a line of portable lamps for the Dinkelspiel Company along with additional decorative furnishings. In the 1950’s he designed a line of tables introduced by the Weiman Company of Rockford, Illinois—two of which are now displayed in the window of Sterling Creek Antiques. Following several more face-to-face meetings with Joanne, I learned that her father worked from the family home in his workshop—a separate little building designed to harmonize with the main house that offered him a chance to experiment with his ideas before offering them for production. As a professional appraiser and antique dealer, the next part of this story was truly exciting for me when Joanne said that she had several pieces of her father’s collection and was interested in selling them. The following day, as soon as Joanne’s son had delivered lamps, tables, sconces and original drawings to Sterling Creek Antiques, I threw myself into more Cole research. Soon after, I’d discovered three galleries in New York

t was one of those quiet days here in the shop when I wasn’t really sure whether I would have any business or not. Unexpectedly, mid-way through my day, a petite white-haired lady walked in the store and announced, “My name is Joanne and I’m either going to make or ruin your day!” She was shaking a little, anticipating that another of the “antique experts” she had consulted recently was about to have no idea what she was about to show me. After Joanne passed me a picture of some lamps and an article from a magazine, she asked, “Do you know the name Edwin Cole?” I slowly looked up at her, glanced back at a couple of lines from the article and answered, “Yes, of course I know the name Edwin Cole.” Joanne smiled and said, “I’m his daughter!” I was simply dumbfounded by Joanne’s revelation. Back in the 1980’s, my husband Roger and I were in the furniture business with his parents… I’d spend hours on-end listening to stories about his dad’s years in the business; the furniture mart in Chicago; the furniture mart in San Francisco. And, I was pretty sure that Dad had probably met Edwin Cole at the Mart in Chicago since Cole was from Chicago. Cole’s lamps had been stuck in my mind for years and I’d always wished someone would start a reproduction line of some of his famous lamps and furniture. I also knew these mid-century pieces were worth some significant dollars but never expected to meet someone connected to them personally, face-to-face...in Jacksonville, Oregon! I was still a little bit in-shock when Joanne asked, “Do

Joanne Beneventi (seated) and Joelle Graves had recently sold Edwin Cole lighting pieces…and learned these pieces were hot sellers in metropolitan markets. All three designers I spoke with couldn’t believe that Edwin Cole’s daughter was here in Oregon and was offering-up many personal things for sale. “Provenance” means a lot in cases like this one and since Joanne also has her father’s original drawings and photographs, her collection represented a very exciting discovery for an antique lover and dealer like me! The Cole lamps similar to the ones in our window recently sold for $7,200 in New York City. However, since Joanne just wants someone to have the opportunity to enjoy these magnificent creations, we are offering them for sale at more modest prices and invite you to come visit and see these true pieces of American manufacturing history for yourself. As it turned out, Joanne had made my day. It is a great honor to represent her and the items made by her father, Edwin Cole… I invite you to drop-by and experience the love that went into each and every piece. Sterling Creek Antiques is located at 150 S. Oregon Street. See ad below.

Up Close and Personal with Local Artist, Yang Yu
Seventh in a series of artist profiles by Randall Grealish
hen you’re a girl growing-up during the Cultural Revolution in China, art is the last thing you are taught to do. At the time, it was a completely different world one can’t imagine if you didn’t live through it. For Yang Yu, living in a hard environment, she needed to learn practical skills for survival and not just how to paint pretty pictures. Jacksonville artist Yang Yu knows from first hand experience what it is like to grow-up under communist rule. Such tough conditions taught her to have good control and discipline, skills she now brings to her paintings via the strong use of color and emotion, emitted from her paintings. Yang Yu says her art is really about a whole united energy flow and hopes those viewing it will feel and connect with. “If you put the truth in your work, people will just know it and feel good about it… they don’t have to use any words to verbally explain it but they can just feel it.” Oftentimes, Yang Yu will stare at a painting before her for a long time to be able to find the next step in the process. Each step is a chance to just go for it, and is important to be able to get to the next step. If she reaches a point and can’t go further, she’ll put it away until the energy feels right again. “Everything will come to you, it is a really good feeling not like the

The time will come and I will get it…I don’t think about the next painting, I am just in the moment as it flows and exists.” The artist believes, “When you truly work spontaneously with no rules in a very random way, it makes it more exciting. If you know what’s going to happen next there is almost no point to do it. When the ideas come to me I don’t force it, it is just there and it gets me and I get it. You can hear a word or see anything at all and it becomes an idea. The other day I was working on a painting and wanted to do more with the background. Then, I heard the word “infinite” and I knew I needed to represent the word infinite…it’s a hidden message behind the rest of the painting.” It is not easy to categorize a person like Yang Yu as she is a little of everything—a “complex paradox” is how she described herself. She feels she’s very lucky and fortunate, one who’s every desire comes to fruition through hard work and ardent pursuit. Yang Yu’s confidence comes from knowing what she wants and knowing who she is not by receiving praise from others. She said she is aware of her ego and that she’s noticed a shift in how she talks and express’s herself and that it’s liberating to put her ego aside and just be true to herself and her work.

Chamber Chat

by The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce
n organization’s budget gives a clear idea of what that organization does and its priorities. The Chamber of Commerce’s budget tells us that the organization is focused on supporting events and activities that attract visitors, managing the Visitor Information Center and promoting Jacksonville and the business community. The overall budget is around $130,000. That isn’t much given the scope of activities the Chamber supports, and even less given additional ideas of what the Chamber could be doing. Myths about the Chamber’s Budget: 1. The Trolley losses money—The Trolley, which is separated out as a separate cost center in the Chamber’s budget, covers its own expenses. Revenue is generated through fares and advertising. The Chamber rents the trolley from the City. The rental payments go into a capital account for capital repairs and eventual replacement. Other expenses include gas and repairs, payroll for the drivers and insurance. This year trolley income and expenses both equal $45,000. 2. Membership dues cover all expenses—Current year membership projections, which reflect the goal of increasing membership, represent only 17% of the operating income at $15,000. If all businesses in Jacksonville were Chamber members it would allow for greater promotional efforts.

A

50% of the operating budget comes from the City’s transient lodging tax, which is all applied to the expenses of running the Visitors Information Center (VIC) and related promotional expenses. The remaining income is generated through fundraising events like Taste of Summer and the fall auction/event, grants and donations, and merchandise sales. 3. Victorian Christmas doesn’t cost anything—The 3-weekend-long Victorian Christmas celebration is a big ticket event which costs $4,000 to $8,000. Expenses include the horsedrawn wagon rides, entertainment, Father Christmas, and decorations— especially installing the tree. Most of these expenses have been covered by donations. This year, there is a grant from the lodging tax to help with the expenses, and along with your donations, hopefully expand some of the decorations. 4. Visitors Information Center (VIC) expenses are all covered by the Chamber—80% of the expense comes from the city’s transient lodging tax. The Chamber pays for 20% of the expenses which cover use of staff and facilities for Chamber-related business. The Chamber manages the VIC for the city. This year it is estimated that the city will provide $43,000 toward this expense, with the Chamber making up $16,700. To become a member or make a donation, please contact the Chamber office at 541-899-8118.

A Few Minutes with the Mayor
by Paul Becker
his month, I ask your indulgence to wander a bit from my usual reflections over City happenings to devote some thought to… nostalgia. This idea came to me when I ran the movie, THE ROARING TWENTIES. In the film’s preface, the author wrote… "Bitter or sweet, most memories become precious as the years move on." This film is a memory—and I am grateful for it. So powerful was it, that I was prompted to recall some memories of my own from that era. I grew up with the people who came out of the aptly-named "Roaring Twenties." Their children were the children of my generation. And, in the same way as Jimmy Cagney, the actor, I grew up as a tenement child on the streets of New York. Only the children in high rises missed that experience. It’s quite an education. Cagney learned how to play gangsters by watching them in his neighborhood. I wasn’t so focused, though I saw gangsters… even having one offer to “take care” of somebody who had been harassing me. Managing to hold on to my coffee cup, I politely declined, resolving to put as much space as possible between him and me in the future. With the end of Prohibition, many of the speakeasies it spawned disappeared. Those that survived became nightclubs, a source for daily gossip about supposedly important people by a new breed of reporter, such as Walter Winchell, the gossip columnist. His column was the most read in the nation. Today, we have People Magazine, but Winchell created the concept. The floor shows in these watering holes never started before 9pm so people were out much later. At 4am, while on

T

A Bit of Nostalgia
my newspaper route on the upper West Side in Manhattan, it was common to see lovely ladies in satins and furs with their tuxedo-attired escorts coming home. How elegant they appeared to me alighting from their taxicabs. My mother never owned a gown in her life. Today, it may seem difficult to believe, but streets were generally safe in those days. Around the corner from our tenement, two young women who worked in those nightclubs would come home from work at late hours and never be bothered by the unseemly characters that seem to proliferate our big-city streets today. It was a mixed Irish-Jewish neighborhood, but oddly enough I never met or knew of a Jewish cop… they were all Irish. They walked their beat so they knew everybody in the neighborhood. As kids, if we started to get in trouble, they would be quick to steer us on the right path, so I have had an admiration for police officers ever since. Indeed, I wonder if the rise in crime began when the cops stopped walking their beat and rode in patrol cars. Finally, there is one memory I could never forget. My best friend had a sister. She was no ordinary girl… think Ginger Rogers. Every young male for blocks around were aware of “Ginger.” They would hang out around our tenement in the hopes of striking up a conversation whenever she appeared. Her effect on them was almost hypnotic. As for me… she let me know in no uncertain terms that even though her brother and I were friends, she saw no future in me. She was aiming higher… much higher. “Ginger” wound-up marrying a top surgeon fifteen years her senior and climbed out of our tenement neighborhood. And that gangster I mentioned above? He was the surgeon’s cousin.

From the Firehouse to Your House
by Fire Chief, Devin Hull
any wildfires in Southwest and Southern Oregon start as grass fires. And they start surprisingly easily—by a lawnmower blade striking a rock, a pickup truck’s exhaust pipe dragging across grass on a dirt road, an electric fence wire snapping against a metal post—and spread quickly. It doesn’t take very much wind or slope for a grass fire to grow from a fire that’s a few yards in size to a wildfire spanning several acres. To keep a grass fire from turning into a destructive wildfire, seconds count. Plan ahead to use those seconds wisely. The best way to reduce the chance of a grass fire occurring on your property is to cut tall, dry grass before fire season begins. Roadsides and along driveways are common places for vehicle-caused grass fires to start. Pay special attention to places where vehicles may stop and idle, such as around mailboxes, gates and turnouts. Cutting grass around homes and outbuildings, such as workshops and barns, reduces the chance of accidental fires caused by malfunctioning equipment, smokers and children with fireworks. In all cases, keep informed about fire season restrictions imposed by the Oregon Department of Forestry and your local fire district and department. Cut tall, dry grass early in the summer—as soon as the grass begins turning brown—when fire danger levels are either “low” or “moderate.” Mowing for non-agricultural

M

Preventing Grass Fires
purposes is restricted as soon as the fire danger level reaches the “high” mark, and completely disallowed once it hits the “extreme” level. Mowing during these periods may result in a ticket; if a fire results, the person who caused the fire could be billed for fire suppression costs. Plan ahead so you know what to do if a fire starts. Have basic fire-fighting equipment close at hand—at least five gallons of water, a fire extinguisher in every vehicle and building, and a shovel. Burlap sacks are also useful; wet them down with water and use the wet sacks to beat down flames. In all cases, have a way to call for help, such as a telephone, cell phone or a citizen’s band radio. Always know your escape routes and check them frequently. If a fire starts, immediately call 9-1-1 and tell the dispatcher the address of the property on which the fire is burning. If you caused the fire, you have a legal responsibility to try and keep the fire from spreading. Never battle a grass fire by standing between the flames and unburned grass. Grass fires change direction without warning, and even a small grass fire can be deadly. Instead, fight the fire from inside the blackened area that the fire has already burned. Work along the cooler flanks by putting out small flames. Aim water and fire extinguisher streams at the base of the flames, not the tops. But the best way to fight a grass fire is to prevent it from starting.

Jacksonville Review
The bulk of City Council business in June revolved around discussion and passage of the 2013-2014 fiscal year budget. (Find the complete budget online at www.cityofjacksonvilleoregon.us.) On the heels of a June 4 public hearing, council approved a new $7.66 million budget on June 18. City Administrator Jeff Alvis and Treasurer Stacey McNichols were on-hand to field council and audience questions. Both noted that the budget process has been smoother in recent years due in-part to excellent advance work by the Budget Committee. Furthermore, switching from 5-year to 3-year projection cycles has resulted in more realistic and accurate planning and budget implementation. It is worth noting that Jacksonville has the second-lowest property taxes in Jackson County at $1.84/$1000 assessed value. The Review sat down with City Administrator Alvis and Treasurer McNichols for a closer look at parts of the budget. Of note, the Police Department is operating a fully-staffed, 24/7 department for only $550,000 a year, “an amazing accomplishment for a city this size,” according to Alvis. McNichols and Alvis pointed-out that the $26 monthly public safety fee (not collected via property taxes) to operate the 24/7 Fire Department will need to be raised

July 2013
$1/year for the next 5 years, in order to keep up with increasing departmental expenses. (Council action would be required to increase the fee.) Further, one part-time firefighter has recently been made full-time to keep up with increasing service call demands. Alvis expects to see an increase into city coffers from Systems Development Charges due to more new home construction taking place. Alvis reiterated that residential base water rates will be increasing by $5/ month to accommodate state-mandated improvements to the city water tanks and lines. (One city water tank is 100+ years old with some asbestos-lined water delivery pipes deteriorating.) Other expenses anticipated in 2013-14 include $20,000 to hire a consultant to update the buildable lands inventory (BLI), mandated by the state as part of Jacksonville’s Urban Growth Boundary update. On the positive side of the ledger, the city expects to receive $680,000 from the MRA land swap and plans to set aside $270,000 to pay-off the Police Station mortgage, $50,000 for dam removal engineering studies, $150,000 for dam breach and/or removal efforts, $150,000 for preservation of the Courthouse, Beekman House, Catholic Rectory and Beekman Bank, and other projects.

Budget Season Keeps Council Busy

City Snapshot
City Council, June 4 & 18: In addition to passage of the FY 2013-14 budget, Council handled a wide array of agenda items. Of note, local photographer Ron Moore was recognized and thanked for compiling a photographic record of all 76 properties on the National Historic Register. Moore’s volunteer project will serve many purposes, including an inventory guide for the public, HARC and Planning Department. Planning Commissioner Nathan Broom updated council on a project to install 4 custom-designed bicycle racks in downtown. Funded in-part by a grant by Cycle Oregon, the new rack design approved by Council will be crafted by local metal artist Cheryl Garcia. The design, incorporating rustic metal and horseshoes, received widespread praise for its relevance to Jacksonville’s historic character. Council unanimously approved a one-year renewal of the Chamber of Commerce Management Agreement to operate the Visitors Center. Council discussed rule changes to the annual Citywide Yard Sale which will impact California Street merchants. At a later meeting, Council is expected to approve “sidewalk sales” for California Street merchants on their storefront sidewalks, provided they maintain a minimum 4-feet of clearance for pedestrians.

Hors d'oeuvres will be served. “Luminosity” Art Talk: July 13, 1-2pm Activist artist Catie Faryl talks about luminosity, in light of the need for transparency and truth and what art and satire can reveal, accompanied by a slideshow of paintings and followed by a group discussion.

A Cup of Conversation by
Michael Kell of GoodBean Coffee
s a young boy, I liked to sit in the bow of the small aluminum fishing boat. I liked the wind in my face and the way the boat’s design let me sit just a little higher than my older brother sitting in the center seat next to me. Most of all, I liked the space between me and the Captain, a space that let me daydream safely out of sight, at least in my own mind from the ever-watchful eyes of my father seated on the other side of my brother. Dad was no nonsense in every respect, a hardworking man who loved to play and cherished his time away from the grind. In childhood I never gave much thought to why he didn’t spend his free time with peers instead preferring the company of his boys. As a man, I now understand a great many more things including the timeless dynamics of a good father and his sons. Recently I had a chance to re-visit the boat with my Dad, just the two of us. My beloved brother didn’t make the trip which was fine this time around. Older brothers have a way of detracting attention from father and younger brothers. I don’t know why but they do, especially first-born older brothers. In the early days, it was welcome relief to have the older running cover for the younger especially in the teen years. Now with Dad staring down eighty, I treasure the rare one-on-one with the Old Man. Time has a cold way of slipping away at unguarded moments, especially in the latter years when precious minutes cannot repeat and fade into only memories. When I was eight, and not paying attention as I’d cast the rod too high and end up in the branches of a giant Sycamore along the lake shoreline, the

A

Lessons in the Boat
Captain of the boat would pretend he didn’t see my dilemma and make no effort whatsoever to bring the boat around to relieve my bondage. Older brother would silently shake his head as I struggled quietly as possible to free myself from the unyielding branch. Just beneath the giant trees guarding the shore were huge bass lurking under the surface. We only had one shot at these lunker fish and trophy bass have no tolerance for eight-year-old daydreamers casting foolishly into the stratosphere. Dad had little time to take away from catching big fish by unraveling his son’s careless snags, yet whenever we would hang-up in the weeds after a well-focused attempt, Dad would always put his rod down and go free his sons’ from trouble. Lessons on the water, in the duck-blind, or on the golf course, were always the same. Life is best taught in the scarcity of words, by example and through consistency. In young adulthood, I struggled in the boat and found occasion to jump out a time or two and experience the chill of deep waters but rebel seasons are growing pains soon addressed by the humbling gravity of manhood. Today, the tides have changed a degree or two and the years have taken a toll on an old man’s eyes and hands. Once-steely precision handling of rod and reel has given way to something less exacting. Now the errant cast of an old captain is absorbed in the inevitable passing of time. As the sun begins to set on the river of his years, trophies are of far lesser consequence except the trophy of precious hours spent with his youngest son. My father still out-fishes me, less steady hands and all, so the lessons continue and thank Goodness for that.

A DAY IN THE SUMMER GARDEN FROM

My Neighbor's Garden
by Kay Faught
We live in an amazingly beautiful area, and I am so pleased to report that our Applegate Valley neighbors have added to that beauty! A surprise to many here may be the growing number of lavender farms sprinkled throughout the “wine valley.” Recently, I took a tour of several new lavender farms and wanted to share a bit of what I discovered at each, unique family farm. Deborah Thompson, of “Applegate Valley Lavender Farm,” is from a homestead family in the Applegate. She began her fields in 2005, looking for a cash crop that complimented the surrounding vineyards. She now has over 200 plants, concentrating on “Intermedia – Hybrids” for the oils and “English” for culinary purposes. Deborah's focus is creating more agri-tourism in the Applegate Valley and bringing people back to the country! She is amazed at all that can be done with Lavender, from culinary to aromatherapy to medicinal, as more and more is being learned. Sunset time at her field is her favorite time when all is quiet, cool, and her chickens and geese surround her in a country setting.

Jim and Dotti Becker of “Goodwin Greek Gardens” are the gurus of lavender in the Applegate Valley. The couple is loved and respected for their knowledge in the field, and it was exciting to talk to them on how lavender has changed in the minds of the consumer as well as use. In 35 years, they have seen lavender plantings grow from only 2-3, to more than a 100 varieties! Their collecting has evolved to over 80+ varieties, with 40 in the ground or in pots, including their own developed variety! Although they operate a retail nursery, it is evident that they both still love to garden! Jim still loves to watch things grow and Dotti loves to weed! The Becker’s began in lavender, using it for dried flowers and wands, but Jim explained that many gardeners now buy and get into Lavender for a variety of reasons, ranging from culinary to medicinal, far beyond the reaches of aromatherapy!

Bonnie and John Rinaldi moved to Ruch to become a part of supporting a small farm lifestyle. Lavender, their choice by default for the land, in 2011, became “Lavender Fields Forever!” Bonnie says she has learned to truly love Lavender and loves brushing-up against it and getting lost in smells. John’s degree in horticulture and love of gardening drove his desire to share it with others. The large barn on the property offered them a chance to bring in a small distillery so visitors can make their own oil and share in the experience. Their inaugural crop this year offers one a chance to share their 7 varieties that focus on “English,” for culinary and “Lavandins" for the oil. They also select “on-bloom times,” sharing the colors and blooms with visitors, further expanding the experience. As we stood in the early morning sun in the fresh mist of recent irrigation, Bonnie spoke of how she loves the fresh cool morning air, listening to the bees starting to hum. What a beautiful spot!

On July 12, 13, & 14 the Oregon Lavender Festival is held at lavender farms all over the state of Oregon.

My last visit this early morning was unique and served as a good example of “not judging a book by its cover”! Dan and Mary Anne Loughran started “Two Sisters Lavender Farm” (named for their two daughters), in 2008, as total novices. Amazingly, Mary Anne always dreamed of a lavender farm, but it was only a “pipe dream.” Low and behold, health issues and traveling brought them to Williams and a mentoring situation with Dotti and Jim at Goodwin Farms, mentioned earlier in this article! What started as a “test garden” of lavender became a field of 800 starts. It is worth your time when you visit to discover the focus of Loughran's fields: as you drive in you are not hit by the beauty of rows of lavender swaying in the sun, but quite the opposite. This year, they have been cutting the plants back and “beating them up,” as Dan says, to develop better and stronger plants and roots. What started for Dan as a cash crop, became a love for propagation and putting a start in the ground! They are organic and will go for “certification” for what is now 1600 plants, and then will pursue commercial avenues. Mary Anne is the “weed queen” and loves weeding in her lavender, so it broke her heart last year when Dan again cut them back! They shared much of what they have learned, including that Lavender is one of the most incorrectlylabeled plants, stressing the importance of plant selection from someone with proper experience I urged both to continue educating and sharing their development steps with others, and encourage their hopes of a strong, vibrant, and certifiedorganic, Lavender crop in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed the variety offered this morning and urge you to take the “Lavender Loop” tour, meet your neighbors and learn about Lavender! Kay is the owner of Blue Door Garden Store, located at 155 N Third St. Specializing in paraphernalia for the home gardener; she carries garden gifts, decor, and a wide variety of pots, tools, gloves, and organic product.

Love Your Landscape by Adam Haynes
s the days get longer, my family is spending more and more time at the baseball field, meaning summer is definitely here! And, here in Jacksonville, the awesome natural surroundings gets me thinking about capturing some of that magic in our outdoor living areas and home landscapes. While Jacksonville is a summertime destination for many visitors, a lot of us will be taking family vacations out of the area. My word of encouragement to those who are traveling to different parts of the country or world is to pay attention to the natural landscapes around you and let that beauty be your guide. Absorb natural scenes and let it serve as your inspiration to create a unique landscape at your own property back home. I like to think that inspiration is all around us, so if you come across a natural scene this summer that speaks to your aesthetic sensibility, snap a photo to record it. Keep track of the style and themes that suit you and the outdoor areas you find yourself drawn toward. Take notice of creative uses of stone, light fixtures, decorations, fences, statues, canopies, pergolas, sitting walls, planters, herb gardens, flower gardens, water gardens, and any other outdoor elements that appeal to your personal style. Based on the climate and lifestyle of different cities, you may find yourself visiting this summer, you might encounter different varieties of plants than those found at home—don’t be afraid to bring these ideas back from your travels to help you transform your outdoor living area into an at-home oasis. With hot temps here for the next few months, this is a good time to consider a group of plants many overlook in their landscaping plan—succulents. Succulents are

A

Let Summer Travels Be Your Guide
described as plants that have adapted to arid or low moisture environments by storing moisture in their leaves, stems, and roots. The beauty of these plants is that they require less regular maintenance than other varieties of house or garden plants. Most of us also recognize cacti as the most common succulents. What some may not know is that while all cacti are succulents, not all succulents are cacti. While cacti have spines, they also often display large, colorful, beautiful flowers. Other varieties of succulents include “air plants” which are characterized by having little or no direct contact with soil. The texture and color profile that succulents contribute to a landscape can be quite striking. Before I go, I’d like to add a few final words about summer care and maintenance of our landscapes. When the weather grows hotter and drier and the days longer, we have to pay a little closer attention to the plants on our property. For full growth of lawns, shrubs and perennials, it’s important to prune and irrigate as needed. Pay attention to flowering shrubs and perennials, which may need pruning of old growth to encourage new blooms throughout the summer. In addition, if a full, green lawn is suitable to your property, I strongly recommend installing an irrigation system to ensure uniform and consistent growth through our warmest months. As always, don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions or concerns regarding your outdoor area, and Happy Summer to all! Adam Haynes is the owner of Artisan Landscapes, Inc.

everal years ago, I was alerted to a plant pest by a friend who happened to be driving through town. After visiting the site, I quickly realized I knew the enemy all too well—Japanese Knotweed! Following a quick assessment, I treated the plants to the appropriate deadly cocktail. Last year, while walking the small trail behind Frau Kemmling Schoolhouse, I noticed something I wasn’t expecting, more knotweed! It’s time for introductions... Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is a perennial that typically blooms from July to October, but starts sprouting as early as March. It can grow up to nine feet tall, and has long creeping rhizomes. Stout cane-like stems are reddishbrown which alternately angle slightly at each node. Leaves are short-stalked, large and broad (4-8" long by 4-6" wide). Flowers are greenish-white to cream in large plume-like clusters at the ends of the stems. Japanese Knotweed is a native of Eurasia and was introduced to the United States as an ornamental. Plants grow vigorously along roadsides, waste areas, streams and ditch banks, and create dense colonies

Meet Your Farmer – Old Stage Farm & Orchard
ld Stage Farm and Orchard is one mile north of downtown Jacksonville on Old Stage Road. Gary and Chris Pellett own 8 acres (and lease another 4 acres) filled with roses, peaches, nectarines, cherries and other wonderful fruits and vegetables. Gary and Chris both have degrees in agriculture from Texas A&M University—Chris has a Master’s degree in agricultural economics and Gary studied horticulture. After graduating, they moved to the mountains south of Mexico City to grow and sell cut flowers. Eight years later, they moved back to Texas where Gary consulted in Latin America on growing and selling flowers, and Chris became a commercial real estate appraiser. Jackson and Perkins, a large rose firm affiliated with Harry and David, recruited Gary in the late 1980’s and the Pelletts moved to Southern Oregon. In 2003, Gary and Chris bought Old Stage Farm and Orchard as the location for their new company Newflora. Newflora is a research and marketing firm for new rose introductions. The farm had an older peach and nectarine orchard which was neglected. They originally thought they would remove the orchard and plant roses but became enchanted with growing fruit. They culled the trees and expanded the orchard to 15 types of peaches along with nectarines, cherries, apples and figs. Their methodologies include drip tape irrigation to lower the amount of water consumed and reduce weeds, bird netting for the cherry trees and picking fruit only when it is ripe—sometimes taking more than two weeks to pick all the fruit from just one tree. Gary and Chris only use non-toxic sprays and are converting their farm to a fullycertified organic farm.

O

by Linda Davis
In order to find the best roses to grow in North America, Gary and Chris trial many rose cultivars and now have over 2,000 selections of roses of various colors and scents to evaluate. The Pellets receive about 300-400 new selections of roses every year from a German based company, Kordes. They plant the roses and then begin a 5-10 year evaluation process of each variety to determine such variables as when and how often the plant flowers, its resistance to disease, and the fragrance of its flowers. Roses that pass with flying colors are then licensed to large rose growers, throughout the United States and Canada, who resell them. The buyers pay a royalty to the Pellets for each plant they sell. Gary and Chris have established a large computerized database for their growing orchard and rose businesses, and maintain it with a staff of three full-time employees. And dogs, Lilly and Quinn, contribute dearly by keeping animals away from the roses and the fruit. Gary and Chris believe in buying local and being sustainable. Their entire farm is powered by solar energy, including the irrigation system and coolers. They grow most of their own food and are passionate about the environment. Portions of the land are dedicated to wildlife habitat and they have planted many plants which provide food and shelter to wild animals and bees. Their vegetable garden is fertilized with horse manure purchased from a local farmer. Gary and Chris place silver mulch around their vegetables to keep the weeds down and ward-off bugs which do not like the plastic’s reflective surface. Chris is on the Board of Directors of the Nature Conservancy and is passionate about plants. If she “has an inch of bare ground, [she] would find something to plant.” Old Stage Farm and Orchard sells vegetables to local restaurants, and fruits at the local farmer’s markets. Starting in July, their farm stand at 972 Old Stage Road will be open for individuals to buy fruit. Check the website oldstagefarm.com to see what fruit is available and what hours the stand will be open. Or you can call 541-772-9153. Enjoy!

Let's Talk Real Estate
by Graham Farran, Expert Properties
his may sound like an article in “Cosmo,” but it’s not… it’s a male Realtor’s point of view after years of showing homes to couples and observing what women tend to focus on versus what men focus on. The National Association of Realtors say women account for 85% of home purchases, so “what women want” is what they usually get when it comes to home purchases! Let’s take a closer look… Both sexes usually start their home purchase by looking at homes for sale on the internet. Since many buyers come from outof-state, they generally have no idea where the properties are located until their first day out looking inperson. Usually, the man is salivating over the size of the property and thinking, “I want 100 acres,” while his wife is asking, “Are we there yet?” despite being no more than 5 minutes from downtown Jacksonville! So what do women and men want in a home? Great location—Women usually care more about location and think more about how life will look in their house for the next 20 years. For couples who are retiring here, he may be enchanted with a large rural location while she is worrying about how to take care of everything in a remote location so far from amenities. Women also think more about safety and may feel more comfortable closer to other homes. Men tend to seek more peace and quiet and are drawn to rural locations. A great kitchen—This is definitely the most important focus for women who see the kitchen as a family focal point. Both men and women love big, open kitchens that include space for dining, entertaining, doing homework, using computers, watching TV, and hanging-out together. Land—It is a guy thing that “bigger is better” and it certainly applies to the size of a lot or acreage. A women’s point of view is different: she not going to use 100 acres so it’s not important, but for a guy, sometimes just telling his friends back home that he’s got 100 acres fulfills some male need from “Maslow’s Hierarchy.” Big closets—Women want a home that helps manage her family's accumulation of stuff…which means cupboards, drawers, cubbies and organizing systems are key. But above all, it means great walk-in closets. Bathtubs— They are a big attraction for female buyers. I’m not sure why, but think it goes back to those Calgone TV

T

What Women Want
commercials where the tub is the one place where she can escape from the kids and life for a few minutes! A comfortable place to socialize—Party space is nice, but women seem to focus more on a comfortable environment for sitting around, sharing and enjoying family. It could be a kitchen island or counter, a comfortable den, or a sofa pulled up in front of a fireplace. Men, on the other hand, go straight to the back yard to see where they will socialize. The recent trend of outdoor kitchens complete with TV’s, heaters and fire pits can fulfill a man’s dream. A dedicated laundry room—Laundry rooms are becoming more important and a washer & dryer in a garage doesn’t cut it anymore. Women want washers and dryers by the bedrooms—and better yet, close to the master bedroom. A floorplan that makes sense—Men seldom get this but women are aware of the way a home flows. Women do a better job imagining living and functioning in the house, where guys just want to know where there TV and recliner chair goes. An insulated garage—Countless times, I have seen men head straight for the garage as his wife doesn’t bother looking there. When we’re back in the car, she will ask if the garage was nice and he will ask where the laundry room was!

Family Views
by Michelle Hensman
couple of years back, my son tried out for an elite, exclusive athletic team. He was the star player on his previous team in Nevada, and was, therefore full of confidence and certain he would make the cut. As such, he didn’t bother to work-out or practice any drills. Although we were not entirely surprised; he was up against some very talented kids, he was of course shocked and dismayed when he didn’t receive a congratulatory phone call. The whole concept of a “Try-Out” was completely foreign to him. Although he excelled at the sport in the past, the fact was he was used to everyone making the team and playing. This was his first experience with true competition and the agony of personal defeat. You would have thought the world had ended… He proceeded to go through what I call the six stages of an Early Adolescent Reality Check: 1. Denial—“How could this have possibly happened to me?” “Don’t they know who I am!?” 2. Blame—“I had a bad day!” “That other guy messed up and made me look bad!” “The sun was in my eyes!” “I was feeling sick!” “My equipment was old!” “Why didn’t you practice more with me?” 3. Bargaining—“Mom, please call the coach and ask him to give me another chance.” “Can we move so I can play for another team?” 4. Anger—“I didn’t even want to play for that coach; I heard he only plays favorites!” “All the guys that made the team are jerks!” “I hate this game and I never want to play it again!” 5. Depression—“I can’t do anything

Humble Pie
right.” “I’m such a loser.” “Now I’ll never be cool, no one will ever like me and I’ll never have another friend.” 6. Acceptance—“I’m not naturally perfect and amazing at everything.” “If I want to be good at something I’ll have to work hard at it.” Stage 5 typically lasts the longest and can be miserable for the entire family. This was certainly the case for us. Of course we tried to help our son get a handle on his new reality. We reminded him of all the other wonderful things that he’s good at and emphasized that practicing will help him to improve his skills. We even offered to send him to a summer camp or set-up private lessons. Nothing we did or said seemed to help. In an effort to pull him out of the dreadful stage 5 funk he was wallowing in and lift his spirits, we took him to his favorite restaurant, let him order anything he wanted, (even soda with refills!), and had a very candid conversation with him. We explained that up until now he’s been on an even, “everyone gets a chance and everyone is a winner” playing field, but life isn’t really like that. To be successful at something takes, practice, dedication and yes, even defeat. In fact, it’s through loss that you really learn about your true self and understand your passion because you will either: get up, dust yourself off, learn from your errors and continue on or put it behind you and walk away. Our dinner was coming to an end, so to finalize our point and close the conversation, my husband said, “Son, we all need a good slice of humble pie from time to time.” With indignation in his eyes, our son replied, “I know you’re just trying to help, but I don’t think pie is going to make me feel better this time!” After a long pause, his eyes softened and he asked, “Wait, is there chocolate in humble pie?”

You Protect the Irreplaceable When Your Kids Wear a Helmet
by Josh Cott, MD, Director of Emergency Medical Services, Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center
ou want the best for your kids. So you teach them to eat their vegetables, buckle their seatbelt, and say no to strangers. Yet when summer weather beckons the family outdoors, many parents forget a major safety responsibility—helmets. In fact, bicycle accidents are the top cause of head injuries in children. At Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, we see dozens of children every year with head injuries from bicycle, scooter, or skating accidents. In many cases, serious injuries could have been prevented by wearing a helmet. When worn properly, helmets can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 85 percent, that’s 45,000 fewer head injuries a year, according to national child safety experts Safe Kids USA. At the Emergency Department of Asante Rogue Regional, we advise parents to make an informed choice when buying helmets for their kids. Here are some useful tips. Choose a Helmet Carefully Manufacturers today are making helmets more appealing with sleek designs and fashionable colors, but don’t choose a helmet by looks alone. Follow these rules when selecting a helmet off the shelf. • Look for a seal of approval from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), or Snell Memorial Foundation. • Make sure the helmet fits snugly. It shouldn’t move more than one inch front to back or side to side. If your child has long hair, look for a helmet

with a built-in ponytail port. • Helmet straps should not block your child’s vision. Choose white or bright colors, which are more visible to oncoming traffic. Wear Helmet Properly • Wear the helmet flat on the top of your head. • Make sure the helmet covers the top of your forehead without tilting forward or backward. Straps should form a V-shape under each ear. If the helmet tips, tighten the chin strap. • Fasten the chin strap directly below your chin—not to the side or along your jaw. • Every helmet includes sizing pads to ensure a good fit. Use them to adjust the helmet as needed. • Wear the helmet every time you ride or skate. Take it off when playing, running, or climbing on equipment. If your child is in a bike or skating accident, replace the helmet. Even if it looks undamaged, the material may be compromised and unable to withstand the force of another blow. Set a Good Example for Your Kids Helmets aren’t just for kids. Grownups need them, too. Kids are much more likely to cooperate with wearing a helmet if their parents wear one as well. Safety is a smart habit for people of all ages. At Asante, we care about the safety of your children. The Asante Foundation recently received a grant for $26,670 from Kohl’s Cares, and Asante is using the grant to promote bicycle helmet safety for children. Since 2007, Kohl’s Cares has made over $104,000 in grants to Asante for health-focused outreach programs in the community. See Asante ad on page 5.

SightSeeing by Julie D. Danielson, O.D.
ge-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss in the United States for people age 65 and older. AMD causes damage to the center of the retina, called the macula, and therefore disrupts central vision. Because the center of the retina allows us to see detail, damage to this area can limit everyday tasks like reading, driving or watching television. Q: What can I do to prevent AMD? A: Since macular degeneration is an aging change, following a healthy lifestyle is the best way to keep your eyes healthy. Most importantly, eat a low-fat diet high in green leafy vegetables and fish. These foods are particularly high in antioxidants that limit aging. Regular exercise, not smoking, protecting your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet light, and maintaining normal blood pressure have also been shown to reduce risk of macular degeneration. See your eye doctor yearly for a thorough eye health evaluation. If you have a family history of AMD or your doctor identifies an early warning sign of macular degeneration, called drusen, then diet becomes even more important. You may need to supplement your diet with a high-dose formulation of antioxidant vitamins and minerals based on the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS). In this long-term study, high-potency supplements of vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and zinc were found to decrease the risk of advanced AMD by about 25 percent. Q: Can lutein and zeaxanthin supplements prevent AMD? A: The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are compounds called xanthophylls, which are yellow pigments that occur naturally in many plants and vegetables. They are also found in the macula of the eye, along with a third xanthophyll, meso-zeaxanthin. Scientists believe that lutein, zeaxanthin, and mesozeaxanthin in the macula block blue light from reaching

What You Need to Know About Macular Degeneration
the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD. While some studies have shown that nutritional supplementation of lutein and zeaxanthin may help prevent AMD, other studies were inconclusive. In 2008, The National Eye Institute sponsored a second Age-related Eye Disease Study (AREDS 2) to evaluate the effect of lutein and zeaxanthin and two omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) on the progression of AMD. They found that the omega-3 fatty acids and betacarotene clearly did not reduce the risk of progression to advanced AMD; however, adding lutein and zeaxanthin in place of beta-carotene may help protect vision. Q: What treatments are available for AMD? A: Most treatments for AMD are limited to patients with the wet form of the disease. Less common than the dry type, wet AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow, leak and bleed behind the retina, usually leading to significant vision loss. In addition to conventional laser treatment, newer therapies have been approved in recent years for wet AMD. Anti-angiogenic drugs designed to stop abnormal blood vessel growth associated with wet AMD have shown improved vision in a significant number of patients. These drugs may be combined with Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) with the goal of minimizing further visual loss. Other treatments, such as acupuncture, are also being investigated. Q: What remedies are available if I develop AMD? A: There are a wide variety of low vision devices available that help improve vision for different tasks. For example, high power magnifiers are available mounted on stands to place over reading material, mounted on eyeglass frames, or they may be handheld. Low vision computer aids can scan and enlarge printed material for easier viewing. Julie Danielson, an optometric physician, is available by appointment at 541-899-2020. See ad this page.

Top 10 Summer Energy-Saving Tips
You can keep your home more comfortable this summer and keep your energy bill down. Pacific Power suggests these tips: • Set your air conditioner thermostat as high as comfortable: 78ºF or higher when you’re at home, and 85ºF when you’re away. • Have your central air conditioner tuned up and clean or replace filters monthly. Learn more at • Minimize indoor heat: run the dryer and dishwasher at night on hot days BeWattSmart.com and let your dishes air dry. It’s best to avoid the use of major appliances between 2:00pm and 8:00pm. • Set your water heater to 120ºF. • Keep the blinds and windows closed during the day and open at night. • Window, ceiling and whole-house fans also are low-cost ways to keep your home a little cooler. • Wash clothes in cold water and clean the lint filter in the dryer after every use. • Eliminate, or deactivate, extra freezers or refrigerators if you can, especially if they spend the summer outdoors or in a garage. Better yet, have your old refrigerator or freezer picked up for proper recycling and earn a cash incentive. • Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use. Plug home electronics into power strips and turn off the power strips when the equipment is not in use. • If you have a pool: consider slowly reducing pool filtration time by 30 minute increments daily. Keep on reducing the time as long as the water appears clean.

Soul Matters by Kate Ingram, M.A.
his is a column on why I am not writing a column this month. Well, I did write one, but it was rather forced— which is a nice way of saying that it sucked—so I tossed it. The best writing, and most interesting, comes from a place of vital presence, what’s truly alive in any given moment. (The same is true of people, by the way.) So there’s the disclaimer, and if you’d like to stop reading right now, I completely understand, no hard feelings, and I’ll see you in August. Stalwart supporters, read on. Four years ago, I began writing a book. I had something close to a first draft when I took it to a writer’s group. That first day, one of the members arrived late; she looked as if she had just been spit out of a terrible tornado and plopped, disheveled and wide-eyed, into a corn field. The cause of her distress? She had just published her first book. Now, at that time, I was flush with the excitement of beginnings. I felt pretty good about myself and the writing was coming easily. I was the literary equivalent of a recent religious convert: high on possibility and conviction and painfully lacking in hard-earned experience and wisdom. So I looked at this woman and thought, really? How hard can this be? I mean, you wrote the darned book—that’s the hard part, right? You know now where this is going, yes? Fast forward four years and four, full drafts. I’ve been through readers, proofers, and editors. I’ve learned more than I ever truly wanted to know about the world of publishing (Conclusion? It’s ugly). I’ve been reminded about lost grammar skills and syntax and how to trust my own voice as a writer. I’ve developed tight muscles from long hours in ridiculous postures. And now I am

katherine ingram, m.a.

in the middle of self-publishing, something that many bloggers report is really quite simple, something they tossed off in an hour and voilá!—their little book was up on Amazon and going viral with absolutely no writer’s platform, SEO, website, book trailer or anything. Just look at Fifty Shades of Grey: that woman wrote her blockbuster on her phone, while commuting to work on the train! (And it shows. The book is a literary mess, but hey, hats off to tapping into unsexed housewife passions and becoming a multi-millionaire. But I digress.) The process of publishing is, to quote George Bush, hard work. I don’t personally know these people who are tossing it off in an hour, but it ain’t me. The publishing part is a bit like building a house: one decision leads to four more, and then eight more, and so on. Not being technically endowed, every step leads to a question, and often the answers don’t make sense. And then I have to make a phone call, or I complain bitterly about this dreadful work and why I should be forced to do this. Damn it Jim! I’m a writer, not a publisher! So this is why I’m not writing this: I’m in the dark cave of pre-publication with a bottle of bourbon and a small candle. (A girl can dream.) I’m completely consumed by my little project while juggling offspring interruptus and clients and birthday parties and there’s no food in the fridge and...well, you know, LIFE. I’ll be back next month and, with any luck, this book baby will be born and all my hard labor will be fading into memory and the royalties will be rolling in. That is how it works, right?

n May, actress Angelina Jolie made headlines that fueled a national discussion about proactive healthcare. After a genetic test revealed that she carried a gene associated with breast cancer, Jolie announced that she had a double-mastectomy to prevent breast cancer. The genetic test that convinced Jolie to make her decision is available in Southern Oregon at Providence Medford Medical Center. Providence offers free hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk assessments, which include a questionnaire and a comprehensive look at family medical history, and counseling about options that includes genetic testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Patients who test positive have up to an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer and about a 47 percent chance of developing ovarian cancer. A year before Jolie’s announcement, southern Oregon resident and Providence employee Nicki Pelz, LPN, underwent her own genetic testing after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at a relatively young age. Her sister also decided to be tested and was found to be negative. However, Nicki’s results showed that she carried the BRACA2 gene mutation, which indicates an increased chance of developing hereditary breast or ovarian cancer as well as increased chances for melanoma and pancreatic cancer. “Having the test is empowering but overwhelming,” Nicki explained. “After the initial shock of getting the results, my first impulse was to do something and do it now. But the best thing to do is step back, take a breath, and do your homework with counseling, research and lots of discussion. Being a BRACA2 carrier does not mean bad things will happen immediately. There is time to process information and make the best possible decisions for yourself and your family.” Before testing, patients fill out a questionnaire about family history and other risk factors to determine whether they meet criteria for the BRCA 1 or 2 mutation. This is followed by a one-on-one consultation with Kate Newgard, oncology nurse navigator at the Leila J. Eisenstein Breast Center at Providence. If it is determined that genetic testing would be worthwhile, a blood sample can be drawn the same day. The results take about five weeks and are discussed during a consultation with Nancy Hagloch, M.D., at Providence Medical Group OB/GYN Health Center. "Those who test positive carry a lifetime risk for the development of breast or ovarian cancer," Kate said. “The BRACA gene mutation is something that can be passed to children, whether the carrier is the mother or the father." If the results are positive, there are several options. Women—as well as men—who are carriers need lifelong testing with in-depth cancer screenings and

surveillance every six months and potential drug treatments. People who have complicated or multiple types of cancer histories may be referred to other cancer genetic specialists for risk assessment. Another option is the route that Jolie took with her double-mastectomy. An oophorectomy—removal of the ovaries—is also an option. Nicki describes Jolie’s choice as brave and courageous. “She did what she felt was right for her. I am making my own choices that will likely follow the same path but on my own terms,” Nicki said. According to Kate, while the causes of some cancers Nancy Hagloch, M.D. are understood, many occur sporadically and remain a mystery. Even if a person has a family member who has had cancer, it may not be caused by genetics. "Assessment, testing and counseling are meant to empower individuals and provide guidance for their decisions," Kate said. She recommends bracanow.com as a pre-screening resource.

ATA High Mountain Hike to Hinkle Lake
The Applegate Trails Association (ATA)) invites you to explore our incredible Siskiyou Mountains and the colorful high mountain meadows framing Hinkle Lake. A moderate hike will find us eating lunch beside this shallow lake in a lush hanging valley filled with a myriad of wildflowers, gurgling springs and towering ancient forest. Two separate hikes of varying difficulty will be offered. The first is a gentle hike, rated moderate, along a closed roadbed to Hinkle Lake (3 miles total, out and back). The other option is a more strenuous loop hike including some off-trail scrambling. The loop hike, rated moderate to difficult, is estimated at 4 to 5 miles with 400 feet elevation gain. We meet at 9:00am, Friday, July 19th at the Ruch Plaza lower parking lot. Last year the flowers along the mountain roads in the 1-hour drive to the trailhead almost rivaled all those we saw on the hike. Hikers should wear sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing. Bring plenty of water, some food and your camera. Please leave your pets at home. RSVP by contacting David Calahan at 541-899-1226 or david@ applegatetrails.org. ATA would appreciate a $5 donation at sign-in. For additional information about our non-profit organization, future guided hikes and events, please visit our website at www.applegatetrails.org.

He’s more than just man's best friend.. He ’s family.

Rimadyl to Rusty’s Rescue?
by Dr. Jeff Judkins, Animalkind Veterinary Clinic
You’ve noticed that your 7-yearold golden retriever is experiencing some stiffness after his weekend romps at the beach or on the trail. You take “Rusty” to your local vet, who performs a physical exam, and tells you that your dog has developed degenerative joint disease (DJD), a type of arthritis, in his hips. He prescribes Rimadyl, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID), and explains that Rusty’s condition is not curable, but that his joint stiffness and pain can be alleviated by giving him one tablet a day, possibly for the rest of his life. You cringe at the $50 price tag for a month’s supply of tablets, but are happy to have something that will help your pet be more comfortable and allow him to be active without pain. What could be wrong with that? A number of things: There are several studies suggesting that the longterm use of NSAIDs actually accelerates the progression of DJD. So while Rusty may be more comfortable during and immediately after exercise, eventually the arthritis will become more severe, and less responsive to the medication. And unfortunately, severe advanced DJD and its associated mobility problems is one of the more common reasons that older large-breed dogs are put to sleep. So obviously, slowing down the progression of arthritis while maintaining comfort and good quality of life is a very worthy goal. The other reason to be judicious with the use of NSAIDs is the potential for adverse side effects. This class of drugs is known cause stomach ulcers, kidney damage and—in some rare cases—liver failure and death. (As well as heart attacks in humans.) While serious side effects from NSAIDs are uncommon, they are also believed to adversely affect the healthy balance of bacteria in the gut, and to contribute to a condition known as “leaky gut.” Both of these problems can be the underlying cause of allergies, chronic digestive problems and multiple immunemediated diseases. Obviously, it would be wise to limit these drugs to short-term use, or to cases of last resort. The good news is that there are many alternatives to using NSAIDs for chronic DJD. Acupuncture can be very effective, as well as therapeutic lasers that many vet clinics now have available. Diets low in carbs and high in omega-3-fatty-acids are very helpful in moderating chronic inflammation. Herbs such as curcumin, boswellia and ginger benefit arthritic dogs, as well as nutraceuticals such as MSM, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid. Also, don’t forget to walk your “Rusty” daily on leash to maintain good mobility and muscle strength. Swimming is good, but avoid overdoing it with ball retrieving, beach romps, etc. By the way, all these considerations are applicable to other species as well, such as horses, goats and even humans. Cats are very susceptible to adverse side effects of NSAIDs, so they are used infrequently, and only with great caution. Call us at Animalkind Holistic Veterinary Clinic if you think your pet might benefit from an alternative approach to his or her stiff painful joints, 541-702-2288. See ad below.

Paws for Thought by Dr. Tami Rogers
f you are lucky enough to share your home with a cat, chances are you have had issues with them urinating or defecating outside of their litter box. A truly frustrating problem, toileting issues are one of the most common reasons cats are relinquished to shelters or abandoned. There are three primary reasons for inappropriate elimination: medical, marking, and basic toileting problems. Once the reason is determined, a treatment plan can be developed. Any cat that is eliminating outside of the litter box should be examined by a veterinarian to rule out medical causes. A few diagnostic tests can help rule out conditions such as diabetes or kidney disease which can result in an increased volume of urination. These tests can also detect urinary tract infections, cystitis or bladder stones which can lead to increased frequency of urination. Inappropriate elimination can also result from arthritis, hip dysplasia or chronic constipation. Marking is another form of inappropriate elimination that is commonly reported. Urine spraying, when a cat deposits urine on a vertical surface such as a wall, is the most common form of marking. However, marking can also involve urine and/or feces deposited on a horizontal surface. Marking is a form of communication which can be associated with a heightened state of emotional arousal or stress in the cat. Marking typically occurs in

I

locations of “social significance” in the household. For instance, a cat may mark the living room wall or if you are really lucky, your very own bed! A variety issues can trigger urine marking. For example, a new cat in the household (or even a cat that is visible outside to a cat that is kept indoor only), a change in routine, aggression between cats, etc. Potential solutions for this frustrating condition start with removing, or simply reducing the intensity of, the identified triggers. Also of great importance is to provide plentiful resources for feeding, elimination, perching, scratching, and playing. An in-depth consultation with your veterinarian can help tailor a plan to the specific social situation affecting your cat and can take into consideration his/her personal preferences. In some instances, medications or pheromone therapy can be beneficial and may be prescribed. Another common issue seen with cats is often referred to in-general as “toileting problems.” This is when a cat does not use the litter box for normal elimination and owners will typically find urine and/or feces on horizontal surfaces. This issue is often related to some sort of aversion towards the litter box. For example, your cat may not appreciate their litter box only being cleaned once per week, they may not like the litter type, Bad Kitty - Cont'd. on Pg. 37

Annie’s Antics by Annie Parker
o—let’s talk grooming… I’m not a fan. It’s fine that you humans want to smell nice and get a snazzy coif… but I prefer a fresh, garden au-naturel smell. I work hard to perfect my look and scent with a good rub against the fence, a nice roll in some composted grass and turkey poop—and voila! But—Mom insists on a proper grooming. She’d love to take me to the groomer, but I act very scary, and she feels it wouldn’t be fair to the poor soul who’s assigned the task of getting me all spiffy! So the drama unfolds like this: first—she has to get me into the shower with a special spray hose/nozzle so she can actually get the water directly onto my fur. My Golden fur is made to repel water, you know! So, after enticing me in with treats, she gets in the shower with me and takes forever getting me wet. I must tell you—I act really good once IN the shower and even tolerate water flowing right on my face and head. Then, she rubs soap all over me, then rinses me off. When I’m a really WET dog, she tries to get some of the water off IN the shower, so I don’t flood the bathroom when I leave it. Sometimes I try to shake off in the shower, but my legs splay outward which is hazardous to us both! Now the FUN part: I get freed from the shower and go crazy! I whine, shake, roll and run around like a mad thing (all in our small bathroom). Water flies everywhere

S

as Mom tries to catch me for a towel rub. I love grabbing the towel with my teeth, growling and shaking it wildly! When released from the bathroom, I make a mad dash for the living room, then the yard, where I run like a mad thing and, of course, roll in the grass. When I’m pretty dry, the worst part comes: the clipping and brushing. I do love the attention, but I HATE being brushed. She uses is a torture instrument called the Furminator. This thing is brutal. When I’m brushed, I draw my gums back, bare my teeth and look like I’m in attack mode! Mom expects me to actually lie still so she can clip my nails and trim my fur—hah! We usually do this crazy dance with me scooting all over the deck, while she pursues me with dogged (pun intended) determination. To clip the fur off my hind legs, she stands over me facing my tail, bends down to hold my butt up with one hand, and tries to clip with the other. Is it any wonder I look like I’ve gotten a total hatchet-job later? Last is something I do like: teeth brushing. Doggie toothpaste is yummy! I sit between Mom’s legs so she can stand behind me for easy access to my jaws…when I’ve had enough, I just scoot backward between her legs… and I’m gone. If you have any fun doggie-tails to share, please email them to jo@jacksonvillereview.com—and enjoy summer in our Small Town with Big Atmosphere! Don't forget to donate to SOHS, Sanctuary One or Friends of the Animal Shelter and tell them Annie and Marty-the-cat sent you!

Another lifesaving program by SNYP with support by FOTAS.

n 1971, Sue Coppard, a woman working as a secretary in London, had an inspiration that was so simple, it was brilliant. She decided to form a group that connected organic farmers who could use a little extra help with city dwellers who were looking for a way to reconnect with nature. For years Coppard struggled to find even one farm willing to try out her scheme. But luckily for the world she persisted, and eventually one farm agreed to open their gates to 15 volunteers recruited by Coppard. From these humble beginnings, a global phenomenon called Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) was born. 42 years later, there are WWOOF hosts located in 99 countries around the world. This is a win-win proposition on a truly massive scale. Thousands of organic farmers are growing and prospering with help from WWOOFers, while tens of thousands of volunteers receive a hands-on education, a chance to meet new and interesting people, and the physical, emotional, and spiritual health benefits of living on a farm. In a recent interview, Sarah Potenza, Executive Director of WWOOF-USA, the San Francisco-based nonprofit that coordinates WWOOF activities in the U.S., said "WWOOF-USA has 14,000 members and 1,600 hosts in all 50 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. We are now the second-largest WWOOF group in the world." "We organized and hosted an international WWOOF conference in San Francisco last year," Potenza said. "More than 25 WWOOF coordinators attended, from places as far away as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Chile, Uganda and more. We work with other WWOOF groups around the world to

help promote our mission of connecting visitors with organic farms, creating an educational exchange, and building a global community conscious of ecological farming practices." Of the 1,600 American farms registered with WWOOF-USA, 96 of them are in Oregon. A third of those farms are in southern Oregon, including Sanctuary One. Over the past five years, the Sanctuary has hosted 22 interns, and all of them have been smart, caring, hardworking people. They have come from places as far away as Russia, Canada, Washington State, Nebraska, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Massachusetts, New York, Virginia, Florida, and Hawaii. The average length of stay for Sanctuary interns is four months. We provide hands-on care farming and permaculture education, while the interns help us with routine chores, special projects, and hopefully teach us something in return, too. The Sanctuary is currently accepting applications from people interested in becoming a WWOOFer. The ideal applicant will be self-motivated, dependable, a team player, and flexible about what kind of volunteer work he or she is assigned to perform on a daily basis. Sometimes it's hard, physical volunteer work, and thus only suitable for people who are physically fit and able to work outdoors in all sorts of weather conditions. As is the case at most WWOOF host farms, farming experience is a plus, but not required. If you or someone you know is interested in WWOOFing at the Sanctuary, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you. For more information, please visit the Sanctuary website at www.SanctuaryOne.org or call 541-899-8627.

Jacksonville Travel Tales: African Safari
ne moment we were watching a cheetah creeping through the tall Serengeti grass towards a herd of gazelles and wildebeests more than 100 yards away. Suddenly, the sleek cat bolted from my camera’s viewfinder as it quickly closed the distance between itself and the grazing animals. The gazelles and wildebeest began scattering, but in less than 20 seconds from the time it began its chase, the cheetah had a Thomson’s gazelle pinned to the ground. The cheetah’s four cubs were well-fed that afternoon. During our journey through Tanzania and Kenya, we were constantly confronted with life and death in its harshest forms. Still, in Tanzania, we found an amazing abundance of life. Hundreds of thousands of dark wildebeest, their white beards wagging in the sun, kicked up dust as they trotted toward the rain clouds and the promise of food and water. Joining them in the great migration were thousands of zebras, the black and white stripes of multiple animals mingling together to form intricate patterns. The zebra snorted and the wildebeest grunted, while doves maintained a constant background chorus to the wildlife symphony. Wagtails flitted in the grass around countless hooves, swallows swooped just above the ground, and avian oxpeckers rode on proffered mammal backs. Occasionally an ostrich or an eland could be seen wandering in the background. We witnessed new life come into being as baby wildebeest were born to mothers on the move. It was amazing to watch the calf emerge from the mother, head and front hooves first. Immediately after, the mother would start licking it and within a minute or two the newborn was trying to stand on its spindly legs. After about six minutes, it was not only successfully standing, but also starting to nurse. Such speedy maturing is essential for survival on the plains. On the African plains, nothing is wasted and death for one means life for many others. When the cheetahs or lions had their fill of a kill, the carcass Bad Kitty - Cont'd. from Pg. 35 the box size, style, or its location in the house. A good rule to follow in regards to the number of boxes in the home is the number of cats plus one (so if you have 3 cats you should have 4 litter boxes, etc). Boxes should be scooped daily and completely changed and washed regularly. If a toileting problem is suspected, your veterinarian may recommend that you offer your cat various different litter box setups to discover your cat’s preferred toileting option(s). It is also advisable to move the litter box to a low-traffic/quiet area. If another cat or a dog is “guarding” the box, or if it is too stressful getting to a box located in a busy area of the home, the cat may choose to go wherever it feels safe. You can also try putting a litter box over the spot where the cat has been housesoiling. If you have senior cats, make sure the boxes are accessible. Low-sided boxes work best for cats with joint or arthritis issues. Because there are a number of medical issues that can cause inappropriate elimination, it is always advisable to first consult with your veterinarian to rule these conditions out. Once the cause is determined, your veterinarian will help develop a plan that fits accordingly!

became a meal for jackals, hyenas, vultures and marabou storks. Once, we saw an orphaned wildebeest calf, bleating forlornly as it approached other wildebeest, then groups of zebras, and even our Range Rover. Our guides explained that other wildebeest will not adopt it. It will soon be a meal for a predator. In places, the human element is also part of the landscape. As we drove to the various parks, we passed Masai and Samburu settlements—the grass and mud domelike structures arranged in a circle, with goats and chickens running about. Everywhere we saw people walking, virtually all the women dressed in vivid colors. Very young Masai children tended herds of goats and cattle, unsupervised. In areas near the wildlife parks, the herding was done by Masai men carrying spears. In Ngorongoro crater, the need for spears was apparent when we observed lions within a few hundred feet of the herdsmen. There were many memorable moments on this trip: watching elephants take mud baths in the river, leopard cubs playing on a dead-tree jungle gym, and baboon babies riding jockey-like on their mothers’ backs. Standing in the open-canopied vehicle as it rumbled down a dirt road and seeing giraffes staring back, we felt like we were characters in a Stephen Spielberg movie. Once, we watched a lion crouch in the grass while a small herd of zebra and wildebeest advanced toward it, oblivious to the danger. Knowing a lion needs to eat, we wanted it to succeed but we also wanted to warn the prey. In this case, the lion missed its timing and the herd dashed off unharmed. We knew there would be a next time and a wildebeest or gazelle would not be so lucky. After several weeks in the African landscape, we returned home to our own life more keenly aware of the fine balance in the cycle of birth, life and death.

when I decided to lease a space for Stim Coffee, people wondered if I had gone crazy. "A third coffee house? Why?" People tried vigorously to talk me out of it. My answer: there is a third way. Stim is not going to be another coffee house. For one thing, the space is more of a corridor than a house. It's small, sure, but like Yoda, it packs a punch. It's all about energy here. The thing is, while I love a good comfy couch in a nice, warm coffee house, that's not always what I want as a consumer. I want quality, speed, and artistry in my espresso. Sometimes I just want to get in and out quickly, with a superbly crafted beverage, humming some obscure indy tune that the staff had queued up on Spotify. Having lived on a street in Portland with 12 espresso shops, I'm betting that we'll find our little niche. About Stim Coffee—Remember when you first smelled freshly ground coffee as a kid? I'll bet when you finally got to taste brewed coffee you were disappointed, right? I'm not sure if anyone will ever be able to make coffee taste as good as it smells, but with the right equipment and the right preparation, we can get pretty close. At Stim, we want to teach our customers to love coffee as much as we do. And once you love coffee like we do, you will want to learn to brew it well at home, because some days you don't have time to stop in and see us. Call us crazy but we are happy to show you all of our secrets and help you brew professionalgrade coffee at home, without a lot of expensive equipment. You're still going to come in for espresso though, because it's tough to beat a La Marzocco Strada MP. Our shop will stock a wide selection of pour-over equipment from Chemex, Kalita, Hario, Cona, and more. We will have several varieties of Stumptown beans for sale, as well as boutique teas from The Art of Tea. At Stim Coffee we provide a welcoming environment where you can get the support you need to experiment with different brew methods until you find what suits your unique taste. There's something here for everyone! Stim Coffee is located at 310 E California Street, Suite A. They can be reached at 541-6222085 or stimcoffee@gmail.com.

Indulg e

Stim Coffee - Cont'd. from Pg. 9 and barely known outside of Oregon, but I was blown away. I suddenly realized that you can buy all the fancy equipment, tampers, grinders, etc, and do all the modifications you want, but it all starts with the beans. As my obsession with brewing the best home espresso continued through the years, I bought a lot of different equipment, but I never found better beans. Third Wave Coffee—Despite already having an astounding variety of caffeine outlets, new cafes and roasters in Portland seem to be sprouting like blades of spring grass. The reason is something called Third Wave Coffee. In the first coffee revolution, people threw out their factory-ground Folgers and headed out to their local coffee house, where the beans were ground fresh and the company was good. Then Starbucks came along and introduced the world to a second wave of espresso and espresso-based drinks. Cafes sprouted on every street corner in America, serving every imaginable variation on coffee. Pretty soon, people were laughing about how the guy in front just ordered a half caf, no whip, extra hot, white chocolate, vanilla mochachino. It all got a little out of hand as cafes competed for business by piling on the sweet stuff. Third Wave Coffee is about getting back to basics. Instead of relying on the big Bunn drip machines, cafes are going back to the old school with pour-over equipment made by Chemex, Kalita, and Hario. Instead of serving triple raspberry mochas, third wave shops are gently nudging their patrons back to an appreciation of "regulation" Italian espresso drinks. There is just no good reason for a 20 ounce latte. People wonder if this is about coffee snobbery, or even people snobbery, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It's about sharing an appreciation for the fundamental artistry in espresso with other people so that they too can learn to appreciate the complex flavors that have been hiding in their cup all along. Why Jacksonville?—Let's face it... Jacksonville already has plenty of coffee. The Pony Espresso and The Good Bean currently serve a town with a population of less than 3,000 people. So of course

Jack Bransford 1921 – 2013
Reverend Wesley John “Jack” Bransford, Jr., a retired Assemblies of God pastor in Jacksonville, Oregon, was promoted beyond this life on May 23, 2013. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Betty Bransford, who lives in their Jacksonville home on Applegate Street. Born in Stockton, California in 1921, he was 91 years old. At the age of 19, he enlisted in the Army, a year before Pearl Harbor. After completing basic training he achieved the rank of Sergeant, serving as a radio operator while stationed in Alaska. As the war began, he was promoted to Corporal and became a Field Linesman, serving as Message Center Chief for an infantry regiment during the Aleutian Campaign. He saw action on islands from Adak to Attu. He earned the Asiatic Pacific Theatre Ribbon with one Bronze Star, the American Defense Service Ribbon with one Bronze Star, and the Good Conduct Medal. Before the war ended, he married Betty Ellen Penfield and completed his years of service as Staff Sergeant, training combat methods to Paratroopers at Fort Benning, Georgia. He was honorably discharged on December 15, 1944. After the war, he moved to Jacksonville and helped found Calvary Church. He became an Assemblies of God minister and served congregations in Oregon for 25 years before returning to his beloved Alaska. He was elected to the office of Superintendant of the Alaska Assemblies of God in 1984, overseeing 80 churches. A modern day circuit-riding preacher, he loved to visit his scattered flock with the aid of a bush pilot. He retired from administrative duties in 1992, but continued an active ministry life, traveling the world in ministry and helping congregations in the Rogue Valley area. He was determined—in his own words—“to die with his boots on.” He and Betty had seven children, who have given them 16 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. His oldest son, Gordon, a Vietnam Veteran, preceded him in death. Sons Stephen and Timothy Bransford, as well as daughters Beth Triplett, Marty Klein-Shoorel, Becky Smith and Deborah Dale were with him at his home-going. Wesley John Bransford, better known as “Jack” Bransford, would seldom say goodbye. He often concluded his sermons, and conversations, with a Greek-Aramaic word, which means, “Amen, come Lord Jesus.” And so, it seems fitting to conclude this celebration of his life with the same word: “Maranatha.” A memorial Service was held at Calvary Church, Jacksonville, on June 6, with internment at Eagle Point Veterans cemetery on June 7.
