ess than two miles from where Peter Brit
likely frst planted, crushed and botled
Oregon’s frst Pinot Noir, (named Franc
Pinot in the mid-1850’s) it’s back to the future for
Jacksonville’s wine industry. Today, on a gently-
sloped mostly north-to-northeast facing parcel of
South Stage Road, Dan and Cindy Marca of DANCIN
Vineyards, are preparing to plant 12 additional acres
of grapes to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The new
vineyard sits directly west of DANCIN’s current
tasting room, vineyard and winery.
The Marca’s currently have nearly 7 acres of
grapes planted around their tasting room and on-
site winery. Dan explained, “When the property
directly to the west of us changed ownership
recently, I approached them about the possibility
of expanding our vineyard…fortunately, they
shared our vision and we agreed to collaborate.”
By mid-March, 2015, the exclusive farm use
land will be home to 19,000 newly-planted vines, all of which are one-year-old
vines. The Marca’s opted to purchase one-year old vines in order to jump-start the
production of fruit, which along with precise management practices provides the
opportunity to produce a 2016 vintage from the new vineyard. “Another positive
aspect to planting these vines,” Dan adds, “is that it protects the views and bufers
Jacksonville with a ring of agriculture. Planting our new vineyard only adds to the
ambiance of this area and is a win-win situation.”
Once planted, the new and existing vineyard will total just
over 19 acres, and will produce between 50 to 60 tons of grapes,
equating to approximately 3000 – 3600 cases of wine production.
Dan explains, “When fully planted, 67% of our vineyard will
be planted to Pinot Noir and the rest to Chardonnay. Having
learned a lot from working our existing vineyard, the new Pinot
Noir vines will be comprised of seven diferent clones, each
expressing a unique atribute of the varietal. In addition, we’ll be
adding the Espiguete 352 clone, one of my favorite clones to our
Chardonnay program to ensure we continue producing the best
possible wines expressing the multi-faceted favors of these varietals on our sites.”
Dan notes that temperature and climatic diferences make all the diference,
especially when growing Pinot Noir. For years, he’s employed the use of four weather
stations on the property to study temperature variations as part of his vineyard
management duties. “Two of the stations, located just 550 feet apart, often refect a 10
degree diferential in temperature… this is a really important bit of information when
you’re trying to match the climate and conditions of the land and its impact on the
varieties under consideration.”
However, before a 2016 vintage can be botled, Marca says there’s lots of work ahead
for him and his team. This summer, the 12-acre parcel was cleared and then surveyed
to determine where the rows of grapes would be planted and where the vineyard
infrastructure would be sited.
With 19,000 new vines arriving in late February, 2015, Dan and his team have been
hard at work preparing the new vineyard by fertilizing, disking and seeding the
soil. The seeding includes planting a cover crop of vetch and clover which serves to
improve the soil, reduce water consumption and aid in water retention in the topsoil.
In addition, each row has been carefully ploted prior to the installation of irrigation,
end posts, trellises and vines, due to commence this month. Being no stranger to hard
work, Dan knows it’s worth the efort and simply smiles and says, “My goal from day
one has been to produce the best possible wines and contribute to elevating the quality
and perception of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being made in our beautiful valley.”

The Woodcarving Place Opening Soon
In late November, a dream will come
true for Jerry Greer and his partner Sandra
Flowers when The Woodcarving Place
opens on East “D” Street in Jacksonville.
Greer, who began carving as a boy, says it
has taken more
than 3 years to
complete the
of the big,
building on
the same lot
as the couple’s
home. The
Place includes a
working studio,
area, studio space and a
Sandra explains, “The
Woodcarving Place
will teach carving and
always have something
for visitors to see, such
as hand-carved carousel
horses and other animals.
Portions of the building
include see-through
windows, enabling passers-by on the street
to catch a glimpse of carvers in action.
The gallery will also feature changing
exhibits relevant to carving history,
ofering-up details and litle known facts
about the craft. For example, Sandra notes,
“rocking horses were not originally given
as toys, but were given to all children to
teach them how to keep their balance in
preparation for riding a real horse.”
Starting in January, classes will be
taught in the classroom with Beginning
Carving, Beginning Watercolor,
Scarf Making and others slated. The
Woodcarving Place will also be the only
place in
carvers and
can buy
and where
wood can be
specially cut.
community is
also important to
Sandra and Jerry.
"We’d like to be
a place where
and artists feel
at home with
others who
share the same
interests,” Jerry
In addition to the serving the needs
of the woodcarving community, The
Woodcarving Place also plans to serve
the community in various ways including
assisting the Boy Scouts with carving
their badges and race cars for the annual
Pinewood Derby.
For more information, please contact
Sandra and Jerry at 541-899-5571 and see

s we enter
the 2014
Season, the words
that come to mind
are “thank you for
an amazing year.”
We embarked on transformative changes
to the Brit Hill, hosted a powerful and
innovative Classical Festival season, and
gained many new community partners.
We simply could not have done
any of this without the community
of Jacksonville’s support. The local
Jacksonville businesses were engaged
in supporting Brit in new and creative
ways. As an example, Back Porch Bar
& Grill was part of a promotion that
included their good eats and tickets to
Brit. The spots were fun and efective.
We believe that Jacksonville businesses
are one of the driving forces behind
Brit’s success.
Jacksonville/Applegate Rotary and the
Jacksonville Boosters Club engaged with
Brit in meaningful ways by embracing
Teddy Abrams, our new Music Director,
and fnancially supporting the new
Performance Garden construction project.
As the year draws to a close, it is once
again time to remind you that Brit is a
member-based non-proft organization.
Member support makes it possible for
Brit to create imaginative programs that
connect people to the performing arts and
provide you with benefts in return. Your
membership donation supports concerts,
artist collaborations, our annual Classical
Festival, school programs and year-round
education and community engagement
eforts. Joining Brit makes you a
fundamental part of our success and gives
you special access to the cultural treasure
located here in Jacksonville.
The staf and Brit Board are very aware
of how fortunate we are to continue to
be able to do the work we care so deeply
about with all the wonderful people of
Jacksonville. As 2014 comes to a close, we
thank you for your ongoing friendship
and partnership. We are beter together.

e’ve been asked why we don’t
include restaurant reviews in
our ramblings on all things
“entertainment.” The simple answer is
that we know beter. The servers and
chefs of Jacksonville’s dozen eating
establishments are almost like family—
and we wouldn’t want to create sibling
rivalries by touting the eforts of one
over another. Acclaimed food critic Ruth
Reichl famously solved a similar dilemma
by wearing elaborate
disguises when dining in
restaurants she planned
to review. She’d appear
as a famboyant blonde
one night, a wrinkled
senior the next, a bookish
brunete the next. Thus
she remained anonymous.
We suspect Reichl’s
tactic wouldn’t work for
us in tiny Jacksonville.
But we recently spent
three weeks in L.A, where anonymity
was a given. This was a business trip,
with litle time for play. The only real
fun we had was dining. Which we did.
A lot. We visited our longtime favorite
restaurants, and sampled a few new ones.
One of us took pictures of these culinary
expeditions. (The other just ate.)
With the thought that you might,
out of desire or necessity, one day fnd
yourselves in L.A., we’ve decided to break
precedent and serve up a few succulent
mini-reviews. Just don’t tell on us.
Lucy’s El Adobe, 5536 Melrose Avenue,
Hollywood: Lucy’s has been our “must
visit” for decades. We love Mexican food,
and Lucy’s cuisine is the standard by
which we compare everyone else’s chile
relleno and refried beans. The beguiling
dressing (is that buter...or cheese...
or...?) enhancing the green salad can’t
be beat. Plus, the dark, cool atmosphere
is tailor-made for quiet anonymity. You
never know who may be taking a break
from their work right across the street at
Paramount Pictures to relax in the worn
leather booth behind you.
The Rib Ranch, 4923 Topanga
Canyon Boulevard, Woodland Hills:
We discovered this tiny gem in the far
western edge of the San Fernando Valley
over twenty years ago, and it instantly
became our all-time favorite BBQ joint.
Everything is perfect here, from the
satisfying texture of the baby back ribs
(slow roasted in Mike’s oil barrel rig), to
the sweet and savory homemade sauce.
Don’t forget the coleslaw, cotage fries
and baked beans.
Jerry’s Famous Deli (various locations
citywide): Some folks may look down
their noses at a chain establishment with
a giant menu. That would be a mistake.
Taste is all in the mouth, and one of us
grew up eating Chicago deli food, which
is, FYI, nothing like the New York deli
food that often defnes the genre. Jerry’s
leans towards Chicago style, with not-too-
lean corned beef, fall-apart brisket, and
huge but light mato balls. The chicken
soup isn’t quite as tasty as Paula’s, but it’s
homemade and favorful.
Bea Bea’s, 353 N. Pass Avenue,
Burbank: We’d never been here before,
but after we wandered in we couldn’t
stay away. We ate breakfast—our favorite
meal—at Bea Bea’s four (!) times. With
twenty kinds of pancakes, seventeen
varieties of French toast, and seemingly
countless choices of crepes, omelets and
breakfast burritos, how could anyone go
wrong? (Bonus points from Paula for their
freshly whipped cream.)
A&W Seafood Restaurant, 9306
Reseda Boulevard, Northridge: Despite
its Chinese heritage, Jacksonville lacks
a Chinese restaurant. We wish we could
bring A&W’s Cod with Black Bean Sauce
and the Beef Loc Lac back home with us.
Reminiscing about all those fun meals
has reawakened our appetites—but we
don’t have to rush back to Southern
California for good eats. There’s great
food right down the street. And so, if
you’ll excuse us, we have an appointment
at The Mustard Seed.
Paula and Terry each have long impressive-
sounding resumes implying that they are
batle-scarred veterans of life within the
Hollywood studios. They’re now happily
relaxed into Jacksonville.
Delivery minimum of $ 25.00 from sun - wed

our loc
al se
ane wasn’t always a poter: While
doing graduate work at the
University of Hawaii in the 1970s,
she ventured into the art building across
the street from the classrooms where she
studied and taught English. And so began
her love afair with clay and fre. Since
that time, she has made pots in locations
as far-fung as Ohio, Hawaii, Italy, and
Sri Lanka. Finally setling
in the Applegate Valley
with her family some 20
years ago, Jane’s house
gained access to the
electric grid only recently.
Her studio, however,
is still heated by wood
and powered by the sun.
Even her poter’s wheel is
driven by solar panels.
During the last
year, Jane has become
interested in wood-fring
her pieces. She especially
enjoys the serendipity
that she calls a “dance”
between the placement of
the pot, the fame, and the
wood ash that deposits a
glaze on the pot’s surface.
During fring, the kiln
demands a continuous
supply of fuel, as wood is
consumed very rapidly.
Poters must stoke the
kiln round the clock for
two or more days, as
temperatures inside rise
to a white-hot heat—up
to 25000 F.—to vitrify the
clay and leave a natural
ash glaze on the ware.
Jane notes that the placement of pieces
within the kiln afects the potery's
fnal appearance, as pieces closer to
the frebox receive heavy coats of ash,
or may even be immersed in embers,
while others deeper in the kiln may
only be softly touched by ash efects.
Other factors that afect the ware include
the temperature variations within the
kiln and the amount of oxygen in the
turbulent atmosphere inside the kiln.
It is said that loading a wood-fred
kiln is the most difcult part of the
process. The poter must imagine the
fame path as it rushes through the kiln,
and use this sense to place the pots, so
as to “paint” the pieces with fre and
ash. Nothing in the wood fring process
is perfectly predictable.
At this point, having her own wood
kiln is still Jane’s dream, so she fres with
other poters in Elkton and in Oakland.
Eventually, she plans to build a wood kiln
on her property and share it with other
clay artists in the area.
Jane Anderson’s current work will be
on display at the 39th Annual Clayfolk
Show and Sale, on November 21st, 22nd,
and 23rd in the Medford Armory. It’s the
largest clay art show in
Southern Oregon. And
it’s the weekend before
Thanksgiving: the perfect
time for holiday shopping.
The Clayfolk Show
will feature sixty-fve
clay artists, mainly
from Southwestern
Oregon—but also as far
away as Eugene, Bend,
Portland, Klamath Falls,
and studios in Northern
California. There is no
admission fee.
At the Show, holiday
shoppers will fnd
both decorative and
the functional potery,
including dinnerware,
jewelry, tiles, sculpture,
garden art in porcelain,
stoneware, earthenware,
and raku. Jane
Anderson will be one
of only a few ofering
wood-fred pieces.
Live entertainment
kicks off the show
Friday night. Pottery-
making demonstrations
by participating clay
artists and hands-on
experiences for children
are scheduled on Saturday (10:00am-
5:00pm) and Sunday (11:00am-3:00pm).
New this year: Grants Pass poter,
Gwen Childs, will lead two educational
tours of the Show on Sunday: The frst
(at 1:00pm) focuses on various types of
surface treatment, such as colored slips,
underglaze, scrafto, unusual tools,
nerikomi, and carving. The second tour
(at 2:00pm) highlights fring efects,
such as those derived from wood fring,
reduction fring, pit fring, and raku.
Doors are open on Friday from 4:00pm
to 9:00pm, on Saturday from 10:00am to
7:00pm, and on Sunday from 10:00am to

Digging Jacksonville: Artifacts 2
Cap Guns
by Kyle Crebbin
uring the excavation of the
Chinese Quarter by the
Southern Oregon University
Laboratory of Anthropology (SOULA) in
the Fall of 2013, a multitude of fascinating
items were uncovered that can shed light
on the experiences of Chinese immigrants
living in Jacksonville during the late
nineteenth century. Among the most
curious of these, was two small guns
recovered at the lower
depths of the excavation
near the door of the
burned house. Metal
conservation showed the
artifacts to be cast iron toy
cap guns, manufactured
in the 1870s. Due to strict
immigration laws, very
few Chinese children
would have been in
Jacksonville during this
time—so to fnd children's
toys in the remains of
a Chinese household
of the time was very
As an SOU student
working with SOULA, I
had the opportunity to
work on the restoration
and conservation of
these artifacts, which
were initially corroded to the point that
they were almost unrecognizable as toy
guns. In order to prevent the oxidization
process from continuing to deteriorate the
toys, and to ideally uncover details about
the guns make or model, I performed
electrolysis on them—a process used as a
means to restore iron artifacts in the least-
destructive manner possible.
Electrolysis essentially consists of
placing the artifact to be restored in an
electrolyte bath (water with some soda
ash was used in this case), and ataching
a negative charge to it. Then a piece of
“sacrifcial” iron (rebar was used here)
with a positive charge is submerged as
well. When a current is run through the
system, the rusted encrustations on the
surface of the artifact gradually detach,
and become atracted to the sacrifcial
iron, restoring what remains of the
original surface of the artifact.
Beneath the layers of rust, the cap
guns were surprisingly well preserved.
Both toys had legible model names
emblazoned on their sides: one read
“Daisy” (with an image of a fower) and
the other “UNXLD” (which could be
shorthand for “unexcelled,” a popular
frework brand in those days). With this
information we were able to get a relative
date as to when each was manufactured,
and those dates aligned
perfectly with the known
occupation of the house,
which burned to the
ground in 1888.
Questions surrounding
why these toys were
found in the house have
yet to be answered,
but one interpretation
is that they may have
been being used as
noisemakers instead of,
or in conjunction with
the frecrackers common
in nineteenth century
Chinese celebrations.
When Chinese supplies
were unavailable, items
sold in Jacksonville
stores might have been
creatively reused to
replace or supplement
traditional wares. Artifacts such as these
cap guns allow us to see some of the
ways people adapt to changing cultural
environments, reinforcing the creative
ways in which people are able to maintain
important traditions while embracing new
ideas and technology.
Thank you to ODOT and the City
of Jacksonville for underwriting the
excavations in the Chinese Quarter Site.
Kyle Crebbin received his B.S. in
Anthropology from SOU last spring, and
is currently on staf with Southern Oregon
University Laboratory of Anthropology
(SOULA). He did his senior thesis on a
collection of pig mandibles recovered from
the Jacksonville Chinese Quarter Site. You

News from the Friends of
Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery
by Dirk J. Siedlecki, President – FOJHC
hank you to all the volunteers
who joined us for our fall clean-
up day of the cemetery grounds
on Saturday, October 4. I’d especially
like to thank Steve Casaleggio and Linda
Kestner who hauled-away 65 bags of
leaves to be used as mulch, and Erik from
Public Works who picked-up many more
piles of leaves and downed branches.
We wouldn't be able to maintain the
cemetery grounds without the help of all
our wonderful volunteers, so please know
how much we appreciate your support
and help. Our next scheduled Community
Clean-up Day is Saturday, March 14,
2015, from 9:00am until 12noon.
Meet the Pioneers 2014 Recap—This
year ofered another impressive program
that left our guests asking for more.
We played to sell-out crowds on both
evenings, with some 600 + atending.
Following the tour, many guests
remarked that they didn’t think we could
top last year’s event! This year, we had
perfect weather and our players, guides,
and support staf worked together like
a well-oiled machine… and our guests
were the perfect audience appreciating
every moment of their tour. This year,
I can honestly say there isn't a thing I
would have changed. This event requires
a lot of volunteers and support from
the community, all of which happened!
Please accept my sincere appreciation
and gratitude to the following for their
assistance and support: the residents
and staf of Pioneer Village for the use of
their bus and drivers Kacie, Jeanne, and
Franklin, the residents of PV for being
our guests for our dress rehearsal, Sandi
and Maryl at the Jacksonville Chamber
and Visitors Center for handling tickets
sales, Kathy Walt for preparing the
tickets for sale and assisting with sales,

Jacksonville Review Page 14 November 2014
My favorite thing to do is to exercise
on the trails around Jacksonville with my
labradoodle frst thing in the morning.
The air is cool and the sun is not quite
up as we trot through
the woodlands. Based
on the number of people
I see enjoying the same
activity, there are a lot
of happy dogs in and
around Jacksonville. There
might be as many dogs
as people here, maybe
more. If there’s one thing
my friends and neighbors
ask about more than
anything else, it’s, "Where
can we put a dog park?"
I'm always stumped for a
good answer because there isn't currently
a good candidate for a canine of-leash
area anywhere in the City limits.
As citizens of Oregon we enjoy an
exceptional lifestyle surrounded by
inspiring natural beauty and spirited
people. We are the benefactors of a
pragmatic and progressively-minded
legislative approach that dates back many
decades. Our state has had the vision to
protect Oregon beaches and family farms
for future generations. Where other places
scramble to add parking spots, we remove
them to add bike lanes. We may not be able
to pump our own gas but we will never
pay a sales tax. It's idiosyncratic, slightly
contrarian and ridiculous at times... but these
are all a quintessential part of Oregon and
what makes it special to be an Oregonian.
The Oregon Land Use Act of 1973
was a watershed moment for our state
and is an excellent example of balanced
land use regulation. The Act creates
dense, historically-compatible housing
close to amenities while protecting the
agricultural bufer land which serves as
the scenic backdrop for Jacksonville. No
sprawl here!
The Act's hallmark is that it mandates
every community in Oregon defne an
Urban Growth Boundary that includes a
balance of diferent land use types within
it. Generally, Jacksonville
residential and commercial
districts are in-balance with
the prescriptions. Where
Jacksonville is lacking,
according to our state
formula, is land zoned
for light industrial uses.
What we are lacking as a
community is a place for
dogs to play of-leash.
How can we make
our town a place where
winemakers, chocolatiers
or technology businesses
can thrive without the zoning to
support it? Today, once a local merchant
becomes successful enough to hire a few
employees and expand, they may have to
leave town or open a location elsewhere.
If we want to play with our dogs, we have
to follow them there.
We need to be imaginative and show
vision about the future of Jacksonville. If
we don't think and plan carefully, boring
metal sheds and asphalt is what we will
get. Our historic landmark designation
will be a thing of the past if we don't
practice good planning in the present.
Where exactly an expansion should
occur should be driven by criteria that
factor-in both feasibility and suitability.
The land section north of town between
Highway 238 and Old Stage Road is
one candidate, but all options should be
considered. If we do a UGB expansion,
a dog park should be part of it. All care
should be taken that good design is
applied so it can accommodate multiple
uses. Adding ADA- accessible walking
and siting areas to a couple of fenced-in
acres, would make it instantly one of the
most popular parks in town.

Chamber Chat
by Tim Balfour, President
Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce
’d like to say a big thank you to the
businesses, civic organizations and
residents who have contributed to
Victorian Christmas, so far.
Victorian Christmas has been a
Chamber of Commerce-sponsored
event for many years and we would
like to increase community involvement
in the event. One aspect of increasing
community involvement is to raise the
awareness of the expenses of this event
and to encourage residents and friends, as
well as businesses and civic organizations,
to assist in fnancing it.
The fnancial support given serves as
an indicator of public support for this
event. After all, we need to know if this is
where our atention needs to be focused. It
gives those who are able, the opportunity to
demonstrate that they value the Victorian
Christmas activities and to also help
provide this celebration for others who are
not in the position to give fnancial support.
We have had a wonderful, heart-
warming response to this request
as well as just a couple of negative
comments. Most people are surprised
by the overall cost and these expenses
continue to increase every year. This is
why we continue to examine the diferent
activities and expenses to determine if
they are valid and valued.
Victorian Christmas is a memory-
making event and those memories are
cherished for years. It is something for
people to look forward to especially
when they are experiencing challenges in
their own lives—whether from economic
setbacks, health and personal issues or
natural disasters. We want to continue
puting on this celebration to help create
those special memories that sustain us all.
There are two aspects of Victorian
Christmas: First is the concept of a
memory-making activity and the
cherished tradition. Second is the
commercial aspect of bringing people
to Jacksonville to shop, dine and stay
in support of our local businesses. The
reality is that you can’t have one without
the other.
Our local businesses support a number
of charity and non-proft organizations
with numerous year-round donations of
money, products and services. These are
the items found in charity auctions, rafes
and fundraisers. The businesses can
only continue to support these eforts if
they are fnancially healthy. So we won’t
shy away from the fact that there are
underlying business reasons for puting
on this event as well as community
service reasons. Good community service
means good business.
We hope everyone enjoys our upcoming
Victorian Christmas celebration—the
greenery and lights, the weekend
entertainment, the horse-drawn wagon
rides and meeting Father Christmas, as
well as the activities at our historic sites
and local businesses. It is a wonderful
time of year in Jacksonville.

he following scenario has not
happened, but with all things
possible is certainly worth
It took months, but the sale of the old
courthouse to the We Operate Efciently
Corporation fnally went through. WOE
had worked at obtaining the building
even before the citizens of Jacksonville
became aware of what was happening.
It all started when a small, but vocal
group had objected to city ownership
and operation of the complex. Sensing
their opportunity, WOE's board began a
campaign behind the scenes to infuence
the City Council that the city should
indeed sell the property to private
business... specifcally WOE. They would
ofer one million dollars... three times
what one of the protesters was seeking.
The night of the Council meeting was
rancorous. The citizens who atended
were unorganized, whereas WOE was
ready with all sorts of business charts,
statistical fgures, and claims purporting
to show how they would be magnifcent
stewards of the property... and, of course
emphasizing the benefts to the city in
expanding its tax base. WOE even ofered
to allow the city the use of a section of
the building for city council meetings
and other uses. With that promise in-
mind, the Council took up the question
on their agenda. Almost immediately,
a Council member made a motion to
sell the property to WOE. The motion
was seconded and debate began. The
debate lasted for forty-fve minutes when
suddenly the question was called. The
audience was so quiet you could hear a
pin drop. With a roll call vote, the count
was three to three. All eyes were fxed
on the seventh Council member who,
realizing his name would be the one
remembered no mater which way the
vote went, in a voice so low that no one
could hear him, voted to approve the sale.
The Mayor asked him to repeat his vote
in a louder voice which he did to groans
from the audience. Never mind their
dissatisfaction, WOE had succeeded.
The sale went through in a thirty day
escrow. On the thirty-frst day, a leter
was sent to the City, Art Presence, the
Farmer's Market, the Boosters, and the
Rotary Club. The leter informed each that
they had ninety days in which to suspend
all activities using the Courthouse
grounds or property, including the former
Children's Museum. The property was
now WOE's and no longer would serve
as a community center or commons. This
included the City's annual July 4th picnic
as well as the Veteran's Day assemblies.
WOE moved into the building. As
they did, they installed security doors
on the inside. In front of the doors was a
solitary desk with a huge 20 foot screen
over it. On the screen was the visitor's
image covered with horizontal scanning
lines under which, proclaimed in huge
red leters, were the fashing words NO
ENTRY. The message was clear. No
private citizens could enter. This was no
longer their property.
It was at this time the people living
in Jacksonville began to change. It was
almost as if the sun were bloted out by
ominous, gray clouds. Gone were the
usual smiles and cheerful good-will with
one another as they went about their
daily business. Even the people, who had
something in common when walking
their dogs in the morning, ignored each
other. It seemed Jacksonville was no
longer "fun."
As for the million dollars the city
received from WOE: within a year
it was gone. The same people who
were counting the money even before
they received it, spent the money on
sundry programs which no one thought
important before they had it.
Whew! End of story. That’s enough
contemplation. What a nightmare!
ntil now, the principal focus
for breaching the dam has been
on the design, with several
agencies examining every detail and
ofering suggestions. This includes KAS
Engineering, the city’s engineering frm.
The KAS review had several constructive
recommendations, including fnding and
following the old stream channel that
existed before the reservoir was built.
Since much of the channel that exists now
above the reservoir has exposed bedrock
as a stream bed, this could be true of the
old channel buried at the botom of the
reservoir. By fnding this old channel and
exposing some bedrock for the stream to
run upon, it will reduce the amount of
rock needed to be placed on the site in
order to build a rocky stream bed.
Since an access road next to the
new channel is built and used during
construction, KAS says it makes sense to use
it for other purposes, such as a hiking/biking
trail as part of the Forest Park trail system.
Along the trail there could be interpretive
panels highlighting the restoration process
and history of the dam and reservoir.
In addressing the design engineering
plan for re-vegetation, KAS recommends
establishing permanent native vegetation
as quickly as possible as essential to
stabilizing the work area and minimizing
erosion and sediment. This will require
the temporary water system to keep
the plants viable during the frst few
years of establishment. In addition to
the permanent landscaping, temporary
erosion and sediment control measures
must be in-place during construction and
immediately upon completion for the
frst wet season to keep all this newly-
disturbed soil from entering the creek.
Another review of the design has been
completed by Keith Mills, the Oregon
State Dam Engineer, who must approve
all projects on dams in Oregon. He gave an
overall approval of the plans, but suggested
moving more of the sediments to the
downstream side of the dam to reduce costs.
At this point, the application for
the Fill and Removal permit has been
completed and sent to the Corps of
Engineers and the Oregon Department
of State Lands. Chances are good
they will both approve the design,
but maybe with some suggestions, or
even stipulated modifcations to be
incorporated into the design.
Hopefully, this will be accomplished
in a short time frame, so the design can
be fnalized for the city and the engineers
City Snapshot
Jacksonville Planning Department News
ith the approaching rainy
season, we decided to write
about the preservation of
our riparian corridors. Join us on this
leap into science!
What is a Riparian Corridor?
The riparian corridor is the area adjacent
to a stream which acts as a bufer zone
between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
As a result, the vegetation which grows
in the riparian zone is naturally-designed
to atract similarly-unique wildlife
which thrives upon it. The riparian zone
also serves as an erosion bufer which,
especially in the case of our city, is most
useful in the regulation of increased runof
from surrounding residential areas.
The non-linear shapes of rivers,
streams, and creeks help to soften the
water’s force and therefore reduces soil
erosion. A well-maintained creek and
riparian corridor traps sediment and
pollutants, a process referred to as “bio-
fltration;” bio-fltration ultimately results
in clearer, cleaner water to refresh soil
and build creek banks.
Why Does it Mater?
Creeks and their riparian zones occur
naturally to ofset negative side efects of
urbanization and changing climates. By
protecting these areas from construction,
debris, and foreign plant species, one also
protects Jacksonville’s overall beauty. On a
greater scale, well-maintained riparian areas
contribute to a global ecological balance.
How Do I Know if My Property Has a
Riparian Corridor?
If you have a creek running through
your property, you also have a riparian
corridor. Jacksonville has two creeks—
Daisy Creek and Jackson Creek. The
riparian boundary for Daisy Creek is
twenty-fve (25’) feet and Jackson Creek is
ffty (50’) measured horizontally from the
top-of-bank, on both sides of the stream.
Did you know that structures such
as decks and fences are prohibited in
the riparian corridor? Did you know
that disposal of refuse, yard debris
and application of chemicals such as
pesticides, and fertilizers are detrimental
to the riparian corridor? To learn more
about how you can be a good land
steward and enhance the riparian corridor
on your property, come see Amy and
Celeste in the Planning Department.
We will return to preservation of our
structures next month!

After Mayor Becker announced that
former City Councilor Dan Winterburn
had passed away on October 13, 2014,
council observed a moment of silence.
Administrator Jef Alvis
announced that Kimberly
Kerneen had been
promoted from Court Clerk/
Administrative Assistant to
City Recorder and that her
former post will not be flled
until a later date.
Council recognized Police
Seargent Dan Moore for 20
years of service and honored
him with a plaque. Chief
David Towe noted “that Dan
was the best hire ever!”
Mayor Becker read a
proclamation naming Larry
Smith as honorary Town
Historian based on Smith’s
extensive knowledge of
City history and his broad
experience as an educator.
With the exception of
Councilor Paul Hayes,
Council voted to adopt Chapter 9.16 into
the city’s Municipal Code. It efectively
re-writes and mandates how the city
and police handle “chronic nuisances,”
which include: harassment, assault or
menacing, disorderly conduct, sexual
abuse, contributing to the delinquency
of a minor, alcoholic liquor violations,
arson, delivery of controlled substances,
criminal mischief, discharge of a frearm,
unnecessary noise and others. The
new ordinance, similar to that used by
Medford, defnes and
provides clearer methods
for the police to investigate
and prosecute claims.
A $1,927 grant from
the US Department of
Homeland Security was
awarded for to the Fire
Department to purchase
equipment and tools
needed by the CERT team.
Jacksonville resident and
architect Gary Collins gave
an in-depth presentation
on the planned renovation
of the courthouse. Find the
presentation on our website
or the city website. Council
later voted unanimously
to obtain a Request for
Proposal, estimated at
$300,000, for Phase 1 of the
General Construction Plan
for seismic upgrades. The total cost of
the phased project is estimated at $1.1
million. Planner Amy Stevenson was
adamant that no action may commence
until the State Historic Preservation Ofce
(SHPPO) and Jacksonville’s Historic
Architectural Review Commission
approve all renovations.

any time of
year can be a
challenge, but when
you add the holidays
into the mix, it can
be quite stressful.
Here are my top 10
tips to make your
holiday travel more enjoyable.
1. New TSA airport security procedures
are in-place—be up-to-date by
visiting www.tsa.gov.
2. Use the free TSA smart phone app:
“Can I Bring My__?” to fnd out if
an item is permited in your carry-
on bag to help you speed through
3. All liquids in your carry-on must
ft into a quart-size bag and can’t be
larger than 3.4 oz each. Remember:
liquids include homemade jam and
botles of wine!
4. Good news: If you’re under 12 or over
75, you don’t have to take your shoes
of going through security.
5. If visiting family, pack a few items to
leave behind for future visits so you
won’t need to pack as much next trip.
6. Inter-pack your checked luggage
with your traveling companion’s
luggage in-case one bag is delayed or
lost. This way, you’ll each have a few
items of your own.
7. Pack a night light for unfamiliar
surroundings like hotel rooms or
relatives’ homes.
8. To save on baggage fees, ship a box to
your destination with bulky clothing
& gifts and travel lighter!
9. Don’t wrap your gifts until at your
destination—security might need to
inspect them. Instead of gift wrap,
travel with gift bags & tissue that
pack fat in your bag.
10. Keep it local and stress-free by
giving gift cards to Jacksonville shops
& restaurants which are easy to pack
and won’t add weight to your bags.
For the traveler on your list, here are
some of my favorite travel gifts available
at the AAA Travel Store, where I hope to
see you at the Holiday Open House on
December 12. See ad this page.

Legally Speaking
by Dominic Campanella
quality of life,
proximity to
Medford and I-5,
and atractiveness
to visitors has
resulted in an impressive number of
new businesses that have opened here
in recent years. It’s exciting to see local
businesses grow and contribute to our
town’s vitality. However, when starting
a business many people get so caught up
in the excitement that they fail to lay a
proper foundation for success. One of the
most important choices you will make
is the type of legal structure selected for
your business. This decision will impact
how much you pay in taxes, the amount
of paperwork required, your personal
liability, and your ability to raise money.
The following is a general description
of the advantages and disadvantages of
common business forms in Oregon.
Sole Proprietorships—A proprietorship
is only available if the business has a single
owner. This business form is simple to
start and avoids many of the operating
expenses required for other legal entities.
Because there is no legal distinction
between the owner and the business, the
owner will be personally liable for all of
the debts and obligations of the business.
Therefore, an owner should only consider
a sole proprietorship if she is trying to
avoid organization and operation costs
and she has found a way to limit her
liability through insurance or other means.
A sole proprietor reports all business
income on her personal tax return. There
is no separate tax return for the business.
It also means that the business enterprise
terminates on the death of the owner, and
therefore it may be difcult to sell the
business as a whole after the owner dies.
General Partnerships—A partnership is
formed when two or more persons agree to
carry on a business and share in the profts or
losses. A partnership is a legal entity, distinct
from its partners, and capable of owning
property, suing or being sued. Generally,
all partners share equally in the right to
manage the business, and they are all liable
for debts and obligations. Consequently,
it can be difcult for partnerships to raise
money from outside investors because of
the prospect of potential personal liability
and the usually limited market for resale of a
general partnership interest.
One of the advantages of partnership
is that, like a sole proprietorship, the
business is not taxed. Rather, income and
losses are passed through to the partners.
A partnership terminates on a partner’s
death or withdrawal, unless the other
partners consent to continue the business.
Corporations—A corporation is a
separate entity from its owners for both
legal and tax purposes. Corporations are
created by fling Articles of Incorporation
with the Secretary of State. A corporation
is comprised of one or more shareholders,
directors, and ofcers. The shareholders
are the owners who own shares of stock
in the corporation. They elect the board
of directors, who are responsible for
seting major goals and making major
decisions. The board of directors appoints
the ofcers, who run the business on a
day-to-day basis. The key beneft of a
corporation is the avoidance of personal
liability for its shareholders; a corporation
is generally responsible for its own debts
and obligations. The primary disadvantage
is the cost to form a corporation and the
extensive record-keeping that’s required.
Corporations can exist forever, so long
as corporate formalities are observed.
Therefore, ownership in the business is
freely transferable, and there is no need
to cease operations if a shareholder,
director, or ofcer dies.
Limited Liability Companies
(LLCs)—An LLC is an unincorporated
association with one or more owners,
called “members,” who own “interests”
or “units” in the business. LLCs are
legal entities formed by fling Articles of
Organization with the Secretary of State.
LLCs have become popular due to their
hybrid nature between partnerships and
corporations. Profts and losses can be
passed through to the members without
taxation of the business itself, while
members are shielded from personal
liability. In addition, LLCs require
signifcantly less record-keeping than
corporations. However, investors have
often shown reluctance to invest in LLCs
and have historically preferred businesses
organized as corporations.
Of course, before you establish any
business in Oregon, you should consult
with an atorney and a tax professional
for advice about what type of entity will
best meet your business needs, and what
your legal obligations will be.

Health Care System

t the moment, I can only wait
patiently and repeat my heart-
felt goodbyes to my 91 year old
mom as she lies in a semi coma on her
10th day of hospice. Although I am so
sad to lose my mother, I am at the same
time so grateful for the time I have had
with my her after moving her to Southern
Oregon; I had no idea how much the
diference in health care systems would
change her last year and a half on earth.
My mom’s decline began in the SF Bay
Area; she sufered from a constant foot
ulcer. In California, this small wound on
the botom of my mother’s foot mandated
she move from her senior apartment to
a skilled nursing facility. She was in one
of the nicest skilled nursing facilities
in the area. However, it was more like
a hospital room with a roommate who
required loud equipment, and many of
the residents had severe dementia. Each
time I would visit my heart sunk with
grief. This led me to research health
care in Southern Oregon. This is when
I began to understand how vastly
diferent Oregon Health Care was and
so we moved mom to Pioneer Village
in Jacksonville. Here, she was allowed
to stay in a private apartment and was
visited by home health care nurses to
dress her wound. There is no mandate to
stay in a skilled nursing care facility in
Oregon. I also learned that Oregon was
a pioneer for both Senior Foster Care
homes and Home Health care.
Next, we took my mother to a local
podiatrist, Dr. Patrick Code, and
explained that Kaiser would not operate
on her because she was too old. He
disagreed with this assessment and
explained that it would be a simple
procedure. Just like that, after more than
a year of convalescing, he operated on her
and she had a full recovery, even going
back to walking with a walker. Again,
while recovering, she returned to her
apartment and Home Health Care came
daily to dress her wounds.
As my mom aged, her teeth were
failing and our options were dentures or
implants. At 90, my mom did not need to
go through this drastic procedure. Her
dentist, Dr. Wooton, also worked some
magic and managed to allow my mom to
save her teeth until the end.
Like most 90-year-olds, my mother’s
hearing was going. We often had
conversations the whole neighborhood
could hear because I had to yell so loud to
be heard! We were discouraged by Kaiser
and told stories that often older people
do not adapt well to hearing aids; but,
the next miracle came from Dr. Elizabeth
Tangel of Imaginears who outfted her
with hi-tech hearing aids that she adapted
to instantly and regained her hearing.
This alone was an amazing change for my
mom. She could now be a part of family
and friends’ conversations.
And so began my mother’s new life in
Southern Oregon. She made fast friends
with two women that were seated at the
same dining table. Jean (my mother),
Marilyn, and Hazel quickly became
known as the “Go-Go- Girls” at Pioneer
Village. No, they were not dancers, but
they signed-up for every event and trip
that Pioneer Village ofered. A few times
a week, Pioneer Village would take these
three to Oregon Shakespeare Festival
plays, Wildlife Images, Seven Feathers,
wine socials, Jacksonville parades,
wineries, Crater Lake and more. She had
a lot of time to make up from those days
in a California skilled nursing facility
where she sat alone in her hospital bed.
The Pioneer Village staf entertained
and cared for my mom with a great deal
of love. She made lasting friends and
some of her caregivers will miss her as
much as I will. I would often go visit
and a caregiver would be visiting mom
and holding her hand. When my mom
was lonely or couldn’t sleep, Ashley at
the front desk would keep a book that
belonged to my mom in her top drawer
and she would read to her. My mom also
had Zara Lowery, from a local salon,
who came to Mom’s apartment once
a week to style her hair and keep her
feeling and looking her best for all those
Pioneer events.
Her principal doctor, Rachelle Roulier,
a PA, gave mom such loving care and
tried to slow the advance of dementia
but she fnally lost the batle. My mom
had to move to an adult foster care
home. Yes, another miracle; the day we
called Jacksonville Home Care they were
moving a resident out. My mom got to
live in one of the nicest resident care
homes I have ever seen. It is owned and
operated by Rebecca and Paul Sandu.
She was lovingly cared-for and Rebecca
slept in her room for the frst couple of
nights to make sure she transitioned well;
unfortunately, it was only a mater of
days when we had to call in Hospice to
help keep her as comfortable as possible
until the end.
It does take a village. I was so
impressed by Providence hospital,
Rogue Regional Medical Center, Mercy
Flights’ and the Jacksonville EMT’s,
Signature Home Health Care, Accent
Health, Right At home, Pioneer Village,
Jacksonville Home Care, Medford
Medical Clinic, even 5th Street Hair
Salon, and a myriad of caregivers that
lovingly cared for my mom.
I have learned a lot in the short time
my mom has been taken care of by an
army of health care workers; but, my
greatest lesson is learning that Southern
Oregon has one of the most extensive
and caring Health Care Systems and are
well-equipped to take care of the ones
we love. We also have some of the most
loving caregivers who dedicate their lives
to caring for the elderly.
Thank you again, all of you, for all your
love and care that you gave my mom and
for making her last years of life ones flled
with love and joy.

November Movie Night
at Old City Hall
GREAT EXPECTATIONS, our flm for November is
considered by many to be the greatest adaptation of a Charles
Dickens novel ever produced. Starring an impressive British
cast, including John Mills, Valerie Hobson, Francis Sullivan,
Jean Simmons, Alec Guinness (in his frst screen appearance),
and Finlay Curry, GREAT EXPECTATIONS was nominated for
fve Oscars, winning two of them.
Directed by David Lean (BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI),
it is a masterful adaptation of the Dickens novel as well as a
faithful one. The Oscar-winning cinematography is superior to
any other Dickens screen adaptation and one that remains in the
viewer's mind long afterward, as do the characters in the story.
Though not a holiday flm, it is as timeless as the holidays, and
a fting screen experience as we enter the season.
GREAT EXPECTATIONS will screen on Friday, November
14, at 7:00pm at Old City Hall. Doors will open at 6:30pm.

Theater is miraculous, but isn’t it
amazing that we have this world-

History matters: it matters to Jacksonville and it matters
to Cutler Investment Group, headquartered at Bigham

individuals and tax-exempt institutions. The Portland
Business Journal recognized us as a Top Investment
Manager in 2013 (ranked by Assets Under Management).
Please stop by to learn how we can help.
October is historically a volatile month
for stocks. Many of us can remember
the October 19, 1987 crash, at the time
called “Black Monday.” The Dow Jones
Industrial Average dropped 22% in a
single day! Just a few years ago, October
was when the dam
went from a leak
to a break, and the
“Great Recession”
became a reality.
Two of the fve
largest point drops
in the Dow occurred
in October, 2008. It
is an unfortunate
coincidence, then,
that the Federal Reserve is ending
Quantitative Easing III in October. The
natural response by the markets of this
greater uncertainty is greater volatility.
Thus far, this has certainly been the case.
Compounding this narrative is the
fact that we are in the midst of a mid-
term election. Consider this: Every
single mid-term election since 1962 has
been associated with a market sell-of.
Without exception. According to Strategas
Research Partners, in 10 of these years, the
correction has been at least 14%. In the
other three instances, the market sold-of
between 8% and 9% That is not reassuring
news for investors looking for stock markets
to provide them with retirement security.
Given these risks, what should
investors do? In Cutler’s view? Nothing.
We recently went to hear Liz Ann
Sonders, Charles Schwab’s Chief Market
Strategist, speak. She recognized the
risks for a sell-of, noting the history
of election year market corrections.
She also recognized that after the mid-
cycle correction, since 1946, stocks have
averaged 32% higher one year later.
Stocks have a phenomenal record of
recovery from political uncertainty.
This column is not intended to provide
market timing advice, or to predict what
will happen in the future with stocks.
But, at Cutler we believe that stocks are
best treated as an investment, not as a
trade. What is the
diference? A trade
is when you buy
something with the
intention to sell it
at a higher price.
An investment is
something you buy
because it increases
in value. Value is
created by growth
or by scarcity. The growth thesis for US
equities remains intact. The domestic
economy continues to grow, albeit at
a pace less than capacity. Interest rates
continue to favor investment over
savings. Relative value continues to favor
stocks versus other asset classes. For
long-term investors, we would look for
this potential volatility as an opportunity.
Mat and I are both Eagle Scouts. We
believe you should always “Be prepared.”
Be prepared for volatility, but also be
prepared to take advantage of it.

s winter approaches and
the days get shorter, a
perfect way to brighten
your landscape is by adding a low
voltage (LV) lighting system.
Though outdoor lighting is also very practical for security
reasons, it’s also a great way to create an ambience that
enhances your property and creates defnition. By defning
outdoor spaces at night, you open a whole new way to
enjoy your landscape—defning pathways, lighting trees, in
fountains and other water features.
Installing front yard lighting creates beter curb appeal and
adds a dimension of security. Lighting your backyard is all
about enhancing outdoor areas where you spend more time.
After installing outdoor lighting systems for my
clients, I enjoy their immediate response of how much
more they love their landscape at night—most fnd
themselves spending more time enjoying the evenings
outdoors as a result of the ambiance the lighting
creates, all year-round!
If outdoor lighting is of interest, there are several ways
to move forward. The quality, durability and price of
LV lighting varies greatly. The selection at most big-box
home improvement stores ofers the least expensive
option. However, the selection has limitations and pros
and cons since most are designed for smaller, limited
areas. And, the life expectancy of the materials used in
most of these products is also limited. Although the price
seems right, the systems don’t usually last very long.
The next option is to invest in an LV outdoor lighting
system that will last for years. One of the leading
manufacturers of LV lighting I use often ofers a 10-year
warranty on all their products. Despite a higher initial
investment, such a system will last longer, increase your
property value and help avoid dealing with issues that
arise with cheaper, low quality products.
Landscape lighting is a long-term addition to your
home and can create a great way to love your landscape.
As the days get shorter, enjoy the beauty of outdoor
living more by lighting-up your landscape!

Selling Your Home: The Importance of Curb Appeal
by Sandy J. Brown, AICP
irst impressions are everything, at least when
it comes to selling your home. According to
the National Association of Realtors, 63% of
homebuyers will drive by after viewing a home they
like online. This is the importance of curb appeal, the
atractiveness of your home's exterior when viewed from
the street. With more and more people shopping for
homes online, potential buyers could be turned of from
viewing your property, just based on the listing photo
alone! Addressing your home's curb appeal is a critical
component in marketing and selling your home.
Curb appeal sets the tone for your entire home.
Buyers associate the condition of the home’s exterior
and landscaping with the condition of the interior. Your
home's curb appeal should invite buyers to view the rest
of the property.
In order to boost your home's curb appeal, you must
frst identify your trouble areas. This means taking a
careful inventory of repairs you need to complete before
you put your home on the market. Although it's difcult
to look at our own house in the same way that potential
home buyers do, it is important to try to look at your
home objectively. Here are a few tips to help you make a
thorough evaluation:
• Stand across the street from your house in order to
get a full view. Note any painting or repairs needed.
Identify bushes or trees that are overgrown.
• Walk towards your home; note landscaping needs
such as edging, raking, weeding, pruning and trash
removal. Look for items that should be removed or
hidden such as hoses, sprinklers, trash cans or toys.
• Kill mold and mildew on the house, sidewalks, roof,
or driveway.
• Clean windows and guters.
• Pressure wash dirty siding and dingy decks.
• Edge sidewalks and remove vegetation growing
between concrete or bricks.
• Mow the lawn. Get rid of weeds.

evoke many emotions because
of the traditions we try to keep,
the family members we celebrate with,
the family members who are missed
or missing, the friends we include, and
the items
we employ

desired efect at
the dining table.

may be lace,
linen, silk,
coton, or wool.
When one was in the market for
a fne tablecloth, the material that
immediately came to mind was linen.
Linen, which was woven from the fax
plant, is used to describe a specifc
type of fabric as well as a generic term
referring to textiles from sheets and
pillowcases to napkins and tablecloths.
Traditional lace tablecloths largely from
Italy, France, and Ireland found their way
around the world onto many American
dining tables. Many lace makers used
old- world methods such as needle lace,
tating, crocheting, and bobbin lace.
Machine manufacturing of lace allowed
lace tablecloths to be mass-produced for
the world market, but did not deter from
the intricacies and beauty it adds to a
home. Nothing sets of the elegance of
fne china, crystal, and silver beter than a
lovely lace tablecloth.
Damask tablecloths are recognized
for their special weaving techniques,
originating in Damascus, Syria, producing
paterns that appear to shimmer above
their background cloth. Oftentimes the
backgrounds are the same color, white
on white for example, creating foral
or geometric designs that are striking
and lovely. This type of tablecloth has
gone out of favor as they require careful
ironing, though the efort is well worth it.
Many folks have sets of napkins to match,
creating an elegant dining experience.
Colorful linen or coton mid-century

a pleasure
to use.

Whether using china or potery, these
tablecloths add a beauty and charm that is
unequaled. Many are foral or geometric
in bold primary colors for complimenting
your Fiesta Ware or colorful potery such
as Franciscan or Bauer.
There is no set rule as to how you
use these lovely items that are handed
down through the generations, but it is
important that you do use them.
Be careful with cleaning your
tablecloth, especially fne lace. Bleach
and lemon juice are very acidic and
will eat away at the fbers if not rinsed
thoroughly. Detergents will fade the
bold colors of your linen, so fnd a low
acid product that professional quilters
and lace restorers use called Orvus
Quilt Soap or Grandma’s Secret Spot
Remover and follow instructions. Using
a mild solution of Dawn dishwashing
soap works well on gravy, as Dawn is
wonderful at removing grease.
Enjoy your linens and lace and have
a very wonderful Holiday Season. At
Pickety Place we have a large selection of
tablecloths, both linen and lace for you to
choose from.

Mindful Test Prep: Get Higher Test Scores
by Anna Schatz, JD/PhD
’ve been working with students for
years to help them test beter. Most
often it’s about fguring-out what
to study in order to perform in a certain
way. Test prep is formulaic and possible
to plan so that it is predictable, successful
and emotionally-positive. Students gain
great confdence in being able to improve
at testing. Sometimes parents can help
their students with test prep and at other
times it’s easier and more productive to
convey parental expectations through a
consultant who helps set up an agreeable
test prep plan.
With college admission testing, it’s
pragmatic to consider that higher scores
may well be worth more in fnancial aid
and scholarship awards, so studying is
kind of like geting paid to work. Test
prep for college admission is also like
designing ones own class, writing its
syllabus and working through it, with a
goal of a test score within an anticipated
range instead of a grade.
I work with students to consider the
options for their own realistic test prep
plan, as if they are writing their own class
syllabus or business plan that they design
themselves and commit to. A realistic
plan involves students seting out and
then recording evaluations of their study
sessions—to include cruising on math,
being distracted or bombing a reading
passage. It’s good to make test prep
realistic—to notice infuencing factors
and predicted progress and to adjust
a daily work plan as needed. Students
beneft from learning when they can
choose to focus on the next logical test
preparatory step, not test outcomes or
life implications. It helps to think of a
test as a game: a palatable quiz of choice
that demonstrates an individual student’s
focus, rigor, interest, balance in-motion
and ability to manage a situation under
pressure with fexibility and humor.

A Cup of Conversation
by Michael Kell
he world is
and once
reasonable expectations for the next
generation are now prety much of the
table. For twenty-fve years we’ve called
Southern Oregon home, raised our kids
and built a life upon the foundations of
what is now so familiar. Change is in the
air, though, unmistakable and exciting in
a weary sort of way because we’re both
a litle tired from mileage logged on the
highway of life-happens.
The kids are gone but Mary
still leaves the porch light
on. It must be a mom-thing
although the youngest will
fy in to refuel a couple
times. I’m starting to feel
that restlessness again not
unlike the haunting decades ago
before the journey leading us here.
The diference is youth was with me then.
This isn’t a mid-life crisis because I already
spent mine sick as a scurvy dog. Not to
worry, honey, I’m too much a realist to atempt
re-capturing a youth long since passed.
We forged many relationships here
with some very special bonds enduring
the test of time. In friendship as in family,
big storms always reveal the moorings
anchored in bedrock. Anything lesser gets
loosed in the rip currents of next. We’ve
gone the distance here by any measure.
Our hearts are flled with gratitude for all
the good in our life and strengthened by
the not so good. We’ve known magnifcent
grace. Life-altering mercy can’t be
counterfeited, only abused and forgoten.
We can never forget what is required to
overcome the gravity of adversity.
Even the climate now is a diferent
shade of gray. Once upon a time we
looked forward to winter and long walks
on Mt. Ashland or cross-country skiing
at Lake of the Woods. Now the winter
brings only the freezing fog and aches
and pains of older age. Mary always
said she was a land-locked beach girl.
Maybe the tides will raise enough to
carry us out beyond the breakers of no
viable options to the warmer currents
of anything’s possible. We’re ready for
another adventure simply by accepting
the inevitable tide of next.
Our oldest just fnished a long
deployment in Japan. He surprised us
by showing up on our doorstep to spend
a week before the Navy called him back
to San Diego where he’ll fnish twenty
years in service to our great nation. He’ll
retire the frst half of his life with an
ofcer’s pension at the ripe old age
of thirty-nine. The United States
Navy has trained him to be a
leader, a man of great respect
and high-technical achievement.
In addition, soon he’ll have a
fully-accredited master’s degree
in Aeronautical Engineering
without ever stepping foot on
a university campus or writing one
infated tuition check. I’m so proud of
our kids it’s hard to breathe. They, too,
are overcomers and their next is also just
around the corner.
My days are now spent preparing
more for passing the baton than crossing
the fnish line. I was reminded of this
watching the speed-skating competition
during the Winter Olympics. Have you
noticed the athlete in rotation always
slows down before the baton can be
carefully passed on to the next? We’ve
been blessed with a great life here and
even greater by quality young people
lifting us up to carry the burdens of
labor and toil we simply cannot manage
anymore. Don’t misunderstand me. We’re
clearly not ready for next yet and we’ll
always keep a footing on this side of the
divide. However, when the time comes,
those to whom the baton is passed may
run a faster pace but never a greater race.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Everybody Has a Story: Fred von Tress
by Kathie Olsen
e doesn’t make a big noise in
this town. Maybe you’ve seen
him riding his recumbent bike,
or playing his banjo, or sipping cofee
at Pony Espresso. Maybe you go to
church with him. He is just one of those
friendly guys you see around town. But
Fred von Tress, like most people, has a
great back story.
Fred’s parents met picking peaches.
Both families came feeing the dust bowl,
scratching out a living as best they could
in the lush orchards of California. They
had two sons: Fred’s brother in 1938, and
Fred in January, 1941. It was a hard life,
and Fred’s parents tried unsuccessfully
to organize a union. When World War II
broke out, Fred’s dad joined the Army
and was sent to Japan while his mom
worked as a waitress and took care of her
boys. After the war, his dad went into the
auto body and fender business, opening
his own shop with the help of a VA
loan; his mom went to work at AeroJet
building electronic boards. Fred and
his brother listened to the radio—Sky
King, The Green Hornet, The Shadow,
and Fred read books, “because there was
stuf in there that the author knew about
and I didn’t.”
When he graduated from high school,
Fred went into the Army and was
eventually sent to Germany. The year
was 1959. Trained by the Army to be
a court reporter, Fred spent time with
educated men who respected him, and
for the frst time Fred realized how smart
he was. After witnessing the building of
the Berlin Wall and serving his time, Fred
was discharged in 1962 and put on active
reserve. Using the GI Bill, he began going
to community college and loved it. Great
people, intellectual discussion, seminars
with eight students. He was happy. He
began riding a bike and taking care of
his body (“It’s fun. It’s exhilarating. It
does something good to your brain. I can
still do 40 miles.”) He married in 1963
and in 1964 transferred to San Francisco
State College, graduating in 1966 with a
business degree.
Fred’s frst job after college was
as a welfare worker in Bakersfeld,
California. Fred says, “It was a job of
social control, of imposing regulations.
We had investigators watching the
welfare recipients.” He was outraged and
became a community organizer during
of hours. He organized a housing strike
and, he says proudly, “we got conditions
improved!” He applied to graduate
school, and the Welfare Department
wrote a leter of support. Then they found
out he had organized the strike and sent a
leter of retraction. But it backfred. In this
post-civil rights movement era, the people
at Cal State Fresno said Fred was just the
person they wanted in their graduate
program. So that’s where Fred went.
He got his Master’s in Social Work and
eventually became a Licensed Clinical
Social Worker.
Fred had two daughters, Emily in 1968
and Anna in 1970, but his marriage ended
in divorce a few years later. Fred was
working hard but at loose ends. It was
at this time, however, that he “drove by
a beautiful church and went in and they
ofered to baptize me.” Fred became more
deeply involved in the church and found
his base. It was here that he met his future
wife, Cheryl, began playing the banjo,
and developed a deeper relationship with
his children.
He worked for the State of California
for eight years in an outpatient program
for people newly-released from the
mental hospital, eight more years
working for the Veterans Administration
in Yountville, and another two years
a Regulator overseeing licensing of
community care facilities as a Program
Analyst, “confronting the bad guys,
speaking up for the underdog.” He was
close with his colleagues and felt proud of
the good that he could do.
In 1997, he went into private practice,
co-led a domestic violence intervention
project for a few years, went back into
private practice, and then worked two
years in the prison system in California,
running anger management groups.
In 2000 he and Cheryl moved to
Jacksonville and he again went into
private practice. He is contented. His
daughters are healthy and married to
good men. Each daughter has given him
a grandchild. He says, “Jacksonville is
paradise. You can’t have a cup of cofee
by yourself here. I have no desire to live
anywhere else. I go to church here and
love my Pastor. I ride my bike. I play
my banjo with a group of friends once
a week. Cheryl and I have created a
beautiful home. It’s a good life.”
The child of migrant farm workers has
fulflled the American Dream.

enjoy observing
and learning
from parents
of all ages and stages. I’m fascinated as
I study the unique ways they organize,
educate, and inspire their families. After
years of doing this, I’ve identifed some
distinct stages of parenting and some very
clear diference between rookie and veteran
moms you may fnd interesting, educational,
familiar and, hopefully entertaining!
The frst stage, aptly named stage
one, is like the honeymoon phase for
both mommas. All newly-pregnant
mothers glow, and smile meaningfully
as they consider gender, nursery colors,
and name combinations while tenderly
stroking the bump. The diference
between moms in this stage is rookie
moms are eager and excited to set up their
baby registry. They research everything
there is to know about the latest and
greatest learning toys, convertible
furniture, strollers, car seats and they
know all there is to know about safety
ratings. Veteran moms will borrow, renew
or reuse anything to avoid establishments
that end in ‘R Us.
Once baby arrives, stage 2 begins.
This is the action/reality stage, AKA
the fog. For the rookie mom it’s time
to put everything she’s read about and
all the advice and equipment received
to work. However, it can be confusing
and overwhelming when baby doesn’t
respond; the actual what and how to do
gets mixed-up with the when and the
where with extreme sleep deprivation.
Around this time, rookie mom may worry
that there’s something seriously wrong:
maybe baby is broken and/or she fears
she may be incapable.
The good news is the fog doesn’t last
forever. The diferences between moms in
stage 2 is that veteran’s have experienced
the fog, they know that one day they will
wake up to the sun shining, air that feels
fresh and clean and they know that the
fog has lifted. Rookie moms tend to get
trapped longer only because they cannot
help it, they are rookies. Rookie mom,
unfortunately, there is no avoiding it and
no amount of preparation or assistance
can clear the fog any faster; all you can do
is go with it, don’t lose hope!
Special Note: All parents have to be
careful in the fog, bouncing of the walls
can be dangerous. Dealing with one thing,
baby, day after day, without focusing on
anything else, including personal hygiene,
personal needs or what’s happening
in the outside world can be difcult to
recover from. It can leave you stuck in
the fog a lot longer than what you may be
able to tolerate.
Once the fog lifts, stage three begins;
how a mom navigates stage three
depends solely upon whether she’s
a rookie or a veteran. Rookie moms
typically will only emerge when they
have to and they are prepared for anything
because they tote everything. They are
organized, put together, their baby is
well-groomed and their outfts tend to
coordinate with one another. Rookie mom
wants the world to know she’s got this so
she and baby look good doing it.
The veteran mom may also go out only
when necessary; however, when she
does, she’s not worried about forgeting
anything. She carries only the bare
essentials in an oversized purse or stufed
in a second child’s tote and she keeps an
emergency stash in the center console of
the car. Veteran mom does not use baby
as an accessory, her outft is adorned with
milk stains and or dried/crusty bits of
graham cracker, (strategically smeared
on her sleeves or around her knees,
depending upon the age/size of her other
child). Veteran mom is confdent, she
doesn’t explain herself, the situation is
obvious; therefore, she carries hand wipes
and sports a scarf.
Between stages 3-4 is when temper
tantrums begin. Rookie moms tend to
manage public tantrums according to
the textbook: they make every efort to
redirect or compromise with their child
as they nervously smile towards onlookers.
Whereas veteran moms tend to change
gears, pick-up the pace, ignore the tantrum,
along with all observers and continue to
go about their business as if nothing was
happening; if the errand doesn’t get done
now it may not ever get done.
Stage four is when rookie moms sign
their child up for any and every learning
enrichment, sport, dance or music
development class they can fnd and
aford. They’re eager to support their
child’s interests and can’t wait to fnd
out if litle darling has a special gift or
natural talent that requires immediate
development. A veteran mom knows
how short-lived most of those interests
are, so when the parks & rec fier arrives
in the mail they swiftly deposit it into
the recycling bin while saying a small
prayer, “Lord, please give me one more
year before I have to endure…uh, I mean
commit, to all that again!”
When it seems unnatural to clarify your
child’s age in months or they begin school
is when those early stages are ofcially
over. Both moms have mixed emotions
over this transition. Both are thankful
for the independence that comes with an
older child, but both miss how easy it was
to get a belly laugh with a silly face, make
ouchies all beter with hugs and kisses or
wish they had just a litle more time to
make-up for a missed opportunity.
Advice to mommas of all ages and
stages: Time moves fast and somehow
kids grow even faster…be present and
thankful for every moment.

f you are over the age of 40,
you have probably noticed a
decrease in your ability to see
things up close. This natural aging
process, during which the eye’s
crystalline lens loses its ability to focus on near objects,
is called presbyopia. In early stages, you may discover
that if you just hold things a litle further away, you are
able to focus well enough. But eventually,
as your arms seem too short to reach that
focus, you will need another solution.
While presbyopia cannot be prevented
or reversed, there are now several options
available to treat it, depending on your
lifestyle. You may choose reading glasses,
whether prescription or over-the-counter,
to relieve eyestrain while performing near
tasks like reading or using a computer.
Over-the-counter type readers will not
correct astigmatism or compensate for a diference
between the right eye and the left eye. In addition, the
inexpensive lens materials used in these readers may
have lesser quality optics which could lead to eyestrain
or headaches. Prescription readers will provide the
clearest, most comfortable vision for near activities.
If you fnd the constant search for reading glasses to
be inconvenient, you may want to consider bifocals.
These lenses allow you to see clearly for far when you
look straight ahead and clearly up close when you gaze
downward. Bifocals may be used even if you do not
need a distance prescription. If you don’t like the look
of bifocal lenses, progressive lenses can give you all the
benefts of a bifocal without the visible line.
Another option for treating presbyopia is contact
lenses. Monovision is the use of a distance contact lens
in the dominant eye and a near contact lens in the other
eye. Alternatively, you may be a candidate for bifocal
contact lenses, which correct
distance and near in both eyes.
While laser vision correction
will not allow your eyes to
change focus from distance to
near like they did when you
were younger, you may opt for
monovision correction similar
to the contact lenses above.
Other surgical corrections
include a recent advance in
cataract surgery in which the natural lens of the eye
is replaced by a fexible implant. This implant can
change position in the eye and allow you to focus on
both distance and near objects.
Presbyopia can be very frustrating, especially if
you have never needed vision correction before. Your
optometrist can evaluate your daily visual demands and
help you to fnd the best solution to meet your needs.
ears of activity, rheumatoid arthritis or injury
can leave people with painful shoulder joints.
In the past, many patients were hesitant
to consider joint replacement, but now, Providence
Medford Medical Center is breaking new ground in
total joint replacement, making it easier to eliminate
pain from your life.
In September, Patrick Denard, M.D., a Jacksonville
resident, performed Providence Medford Medical
Center’s frst outpatient total shoulder replacement.
“The procedure is the same as we’ve been ofering,”
said Dr. Denard. “Through experience, we have simply
refned the process so that
surgical time and incision size
are minimized. In addition, the
implants have become smaller
and more anatomic. These lead
to a less invasive procedure and
therefore less pain after surgery.”
Dr. Denard says the benefts
of doing outpatient joint
replacement are clear.
“Patients like the ability to
recover in the comfort of their
home. The ideal scenario is to
maximize safety but allow a patient
to go home as soon as possible. This is more comfortable
for the patient and potentially limits infection.”
The best candidates for outpatient shoulder replacement
are those with shoulder arthritis, with minimal medical
problems and those who have support at home. Dr. Denard
says even those who don’t meet those requirements can
have a joint replacement to ease chronic pain.
“Even those who need hospitalization usually only
require a stay of one to two nights.”
For more information about joint pain, recovery options and
total joint replacement, contact Southern Oregon Orthopedics

is one of
the most
holidays, not just because so many people
love a turkey dinner but because we feel
the joy of gathering with loved ones. We
intuitively know the importance of giving
thanks. Through all the hustle and bustle
of travel, preparing and cooking, stress
often gets the best of us, especially when
we neglect our “self-care” routines. We
often end up exhausted and sometimes
more resentful than grateful. Mostly, we
simply forget to breathe! This is a perfect
time to remind you of
the Three Life Saving
Breaths from my book
Yoga On the Go. You
can go to my website
com) to watch my
Three Deep Breaths
video or go to www.
to read my column—and use the link.
Taking three deep breaths 3 times a day
can help with holiday stress. If you take
time to take care of your inner and outer
well-being, you have a beter chance at
staying healthy, happy and grateful.
This is just one of the ways I help my
clients to integrate mindfulness practices
into their busy day. Taking charge of our
thoughts and redirecting our mind to the
present moment can be transformative
and the value of practicing gratitude is
inestimable. The two together: “Mindful
Gratitude” is a winning combination.
A great way to start to implement this
practice is by creating a Gratitude Ritual.
I am talking about going beyond the
gratitude list, though that is part of it.
This can become a powerful part of your
daily self-care routine to bring deep healing,
abundance and well-being in all areas of
your life. I teach this practice in my program
series “Living Inspired and Empowered—
bringing meaning and joy into everyday
living.” It doesn’t require you to change your
current lifestyle or circumstance.
The word "ritual" implies an established
set of procedures to mark a special
occasion or ceremony. The Thanksgiving
dinner ritual is one that we are all familiar
with. Creating a mindful ritual is a way
of elevating any task or practice into
something important and healing. It’s
like a prayer in motion and, just like
Thanksgiving, it is non-denominational.
You can be creative in how you make it
meaningful, even fun, for yourself.
A ritual requires 3 things:
1. Intention: for example: “To create
more peace in my body & in all areas
of my life now.”
2. Focus: redirecting your mind to focus
on your intention and stay present for
the duration.
3. Efort: set a time and space and make
this important enough to do it.
I want to inspire you this holiday
season and give you what you need to get
going with your own Gratitude Ritual.
I am giving you
the opportunity to
sign up to receive
one of my own
gratitude rituals. It
contains powerful
afrmations and
simple steps to
start or enhance
your own mindful-
gratitude practice. You can use it for
Thanksgiving Day or any day and it can
be used as a daily practice. Send me an
email to get it.
As we allow ourselves to soften and
ease into gratitude, an amazing thing
happens—we feel good. Not just about
ourselves but everything and everyone.
"If the only prayer you said in your whole life
was, "thank you," that would sufce."
~Meister Eckhart.
I will be ofering 2 special events this
month on Sunday the 9th: Deep Gratitude
Sound Healing, and the 23rd a 2 hr.

a joy-full Thanksgiving holiday season.
After you've had your dinner and you
get to the “Oh no, I ate too much!” part,
remember that breathing also helps with
your digestion. Remember to take time to
Breathe in gratitude to live in Joy.

Twinkling lights, cheery music and
beautifully-decorated trees welcome the
holiday season each year at the annual
Providence Festival of Trees the frst
week of December. This
year, your family can
enjoy holiday cheer while
helping local patients
receive the most advanced
heart and vascular care in a
comfortable seting.
Each year, Providence
Medford Medical Center
performs thousands of
heart catheterizations.
Providence is the only
hospital in the area which
uses a “radial frst”
approach, which means
doctors go through an artery in the
wrist, rather than the groin.
More than 70% of heart catheterizations
at Providence are performed using the
radial method. That allows patients to
recover in a few hours while siting up
and talking to family and friends, as
opposed to going through the groin,
which requires a patient to lay perfectly
still in a hospital bed for an average of
six hours. Not only is the radial approach
more comfortable, it’s also safer—
reducing the risk of excessive bleeding.
This year’s Festival of Trees will help
take the medical advances one-step further,
funding the update of an Interventional
Recovery Unit. The unit will feature a
lounge-type atmosphere,
including recliners, televisions
and comfortable couches
and chairs so patients
and their families can be
relaxed following heart
procedures. The IRU will
allow the Medford team of
cardiovascular experts to
provide a more streamlined
approach to patient
preparation, treatment,
recovery and education.
“When a family is faced
with a cardiac event, knowing
they are receiving top-of-the-line care
is not only comforting, it’s essential,”
said Katie Shepard, Executive Director
of the Community Health Foundation.
“By supporting the IRU, our community
is acknowledging how important
compassionate service is…that’s part of
our mission at Providence. Having the
IRU means our patients know they will be
surrounded by an excellent cardiovascular
team as well as their family and friends—
which is key to recovery during a stressful,
scary time in their lives.”

Soul Matters
by Kate Ingram, M.A.
t all began with Madame Stacy at
the Sunday Farmer’s Market. Siting
inside the Full Moon Woo tent, I
stared at the cards representing the state
of afairs in my litle world. In the center
of the spread was the Hanged Man—my
current situation. I read up on the Hanged
Man (who, to be clear, is not hanged by
the neck, but suspended by
one foot, upside down) and
the sum and substance of it is
this: perspective. As in, get a
new one.
I’m here to testify that
Mme. Stacy’s cards do not
lie. Lately I’d found myself
slipping into a monotonous,
mental repetition of the oh-
so-many things “wrong” in
my life. That Hanged Man
inspired me to change things
up. I returned home from the
market and, as I washed my
hands, I took particular notice
of the water fowing out of
the faucet. I focused on what was in front
of me and thought, What a blessing it is to
have running water! I had just read about
a litle boy in Africa who walks two miles
for clean, running water three times a
day, and the appreciation of the fact that I
have water 24/7 provided a much-needed
Zen slap.
Perspective is a mighty powerful thing.
It can change an atitude, an outlook,
or the entire course of a life. While my
problems did not disappear down the
drain, the shift in perspective knocked me
out of my myopia and gave me enough
clarity to see things from a diferent angle.
This is the essence of the Hanged Man.
Hanging upside down does not change
the world around you: it changes how
you see it.
We all go about in pity for ourselves,
often becoming obsessed with our
personal problems, which is not to say
that some of these problems are not
real and big and frightening. I discount
no sufering, whatever
size or form it takes. But
however real and difcult
our troubles, they are not
the whole of us. Even in the
midst of our misfortunes,
a great wind is bearing us
across the sky. It’s vital to
step outside of ourselves to
see the arc of this wind-swept
life, to see its magnifcence,
and to understand that even
our most terrifying travails
are taking us to places of
great beauty, breaking us
open that we might discover
something essential and
beautiful in ourselves: Love. Gratitude.
Appreciation. Compassion. Humility.
It is far too easy to become wrapped up
in what is “wrong” in our lives, far too
easy to slip into self-pity and to forget
that this moment is but a point on an
infnite trajectory. It’s important to pause
in the midst of the turmoil and surrender
our struggle and sense of specialness.
When we do, a new horizon appears
and we begin to feel a powerful wind,
carrying us across the sky.

November: The Gratitude Month
by Ashleigh Scheuneman
ovember is the month to be
especially grateful for what you
have. Living in Jacksonville
so close to my friends is something that
I am grateful for. The people who sailed
over on the Mayfower were very grateful
because they fnally made it over to the
new world. If you think about it, not
everybody in this world, or even just in
Jacksonville are as fortunate as you may
be. For instance, have you
ever thought about all the
food that you eat every year
at Thanksgiving? You have
cranberry sauce, pumpkin
pie, turkey, mashed potatoes
and gravy and so much more!
Even away from food, you
have a lot. You probably go
to bed every night, and never
even think about how warm
your house is, or how cozy
your sheets are, even now that
the weather is starting to get
cooler. When Christmas rolls
around, just think about all the new stuf
you will be geting! And yet, are we really
thankful for all of these luxuries we get?
Not every child has toys. Not every family
has a roof over their heads or has enough
food on their table (if they even have one).
Though it might be tough to begin to
not take things for granted, you should
try, because the people in your family
work hard to give you new things at
Christmas, a plateful of delicious food on
Thanksgiving, and so much more. Here
are some things that you can think about
to try to remember to be grateful during
November: since it’s geting colder, you
might be grateful for the big pufy coat
you bought at the beginning of the school
year. Since it’s hunting season, you could
be grateful for a map or a compass so that
you don’t get lost. Those are just a few
examples to get you started on the whole
idea of gratefulness.
And it’s just possible, that you might
be complaining about how you have to
share a room with one of your siblings.
Have you ever thought about how weird
it would be not to have a sister or brother?
Honestly, I think that it would be terrible
(for me at least). Now, I know that some of
you out there would probably act like you
would rather not have a sibling, but I can
almost guarantee you
that you would be
wishing that you had
one once they were
gone rather than not.
Your family loves
you, and works hard
to feed you, clothe
you, and put food on
the table, so the least
you could do would
be grateful and say
please and thank you
once in a while! For
instance, my mom
has to work on Thanksgiving, but I’m just
thankful that she has a good job. I’m also
thankful, for my family, friends, my cat,
my house and God. So, as you go through
this month of being grateful and thankful,
try to see the good in things, and
remember to say please and thank you!

Trail Talk
by Tony Hess, Gary Sprague & Bob Budesa
he Forest
to improve and
expand under
the guidance and
work of the Forest
Park Volunteers
and the city Parks Department. The
volunteers have identifed several new
trail locations needed in the Forest Park.
These new trail routes are developed by
frst studying the trails map and then
using the National Geographic TOPO
software to plot a general route to build a
new trail. The goals of creating trail loops
and reaching view points and shady
creek botoms in the Park are always part
of the process. The next step is to walk
the potential route following the general
path developed on the mapping software.
During this hike, initial clearing is done
with chain saws and loppers, and fagging
is hung as well. GPS points are then
ploted using the software and human
visual sighting. The TOPO program will
draw the potential trail as fagged, and
even draw a profle of the route, pointing
out any accidental steep areas in the trail
while computing the average steepness
in the grade. Armed with this knowledge,
the team again goes out and adjusts the
fagging and does more infll fagging.
The trail construction now has a detailed
route to follow using nationally-accepted
standards for slope, drainage, and
connections to other trails. Trail-building
will resume this winter so be sure to look
on the kiosks for a map of the new trails
and how they connect to existing ones.
Currently, six miles of new trails have
been identifed, with over half being
brushed out and fagged. When starting-
out, look for the new sign in the big parking
lot located up from the reservoir that reads,
“To Norling Trail.” The sign points down
to a just-built bridge crossing over Jackson
Creek to the Norling Trail that runs parallel
to the stream. Using this parking lot and
new bridge is a great way to access Norling
Trail, the Rail Trail as well as trail heads to
O”L Miners Trail and Boulder Trail.
to prepare the detailed construction
and restoration plans. While some of
the above recommendations could
decrease costs, others may make the full
restoration and re-vegetation design
more likely to be required. The city
had hoped to reduce the magnitude of
re-vegetation to reduce costs, but more
and more comments are pointing to a
design that maximizes the revegetation
in order to reduce sediment running into
the new stream channel. Parallel to the
design process is the ongoing search for
funding opportunities to provide some
outside funds to help the city fnancially.
This has been given to RVCOG to pursue,
and to this date, there has not been any
success for any frm commitments. There
are legitimate obstacles for agencies to
approve funding, as they consider the city
has primary responsibility for funding the
project. Not that there isn’t some chance
that outside funds will be approved,
but the city ultimately must provide the
largest share of the costs. However, when
the construction plans are fnalized, the
funding interest may increase. So the
process goes on… and with a lot of due
diligence, which is to the beneft of the
city. When the Application for the Fill
and Removal Permit comes back from the
State and the Corps of Engineers, I will
keep you posted via further articles on the
dam breaching project.

Cold vs. Flu – What Do You Do?
by Laura Wells, FNP, Asante Physician Partners
ou wake up sneezing, coughing,
achy, and feverish. Do you have
a cold, or worse, the fu? The
cold and fu are diferent types of viral
infections of the respiratory system.
Because they share similar symptoms, it
can be difcult to tell them apart.
It’s important to know the diference
between fu and cold symptoms. A cold
is a milder respiratory illness and can
make you feel poorly for a few days. Flu
symptoms can make you feel quite ill for
a few days to several weeks. The fu can
also lead to serious health problems such
as pneumonia.
Cold symptoms usually start with a
sore throat and last for a day or two;
runny nose and congestion follow, along
with a cough by the fourth and ffth
days. Fever is uncommon in adults, but
a slight fever is possible (usually less
then 100 degrees). Cold symptoms last
about a week (patients usually report it
starts gradually), and you are contagious
during the frst three days.
Flu symptoms come on more quickly
and are usually more severe. I’m often
told by patients that, “I feel like I’ve
been hit by a Mack truck—fne one
moment, sick the next.” Symptoms
include sore throat, fever (usually greater
than 101 degrees), headache, muscle
ache, congestion, and cough. Most fu
symptoms improve within fve days, but
it’s not uncommon to feel run down for a
week or more.
It’s important to call your doctor for
an appointment if you have persistent
fever, coughing, congestion, headaches,
and painful swallowing. If you can’t
get an appointment with your regular
doctor, consider going to your local
urgent care clinic.
Both cold and infuenza are viral
infections, so antibiotics, which treat bacteria,
will NOT help. If it is the fu, your doctor
can prescribe an antiviral medication such as
Tamifu to help stop the fu from spreading
and shorten the duration of your illness.
If you have a cold, over-the-counter
medications won’t atack the virus, but
they can help relieve symptoms. The ONLY
treatment for a cold is symptom relief. The
only cure for the common cold is time.
For cold and fu, the most important
prevention is frequent hand washing.
A fu shot is also benefcial to prevent
seasonal infuenza, which usually peaks
between December and March.

all is ofcially here and
the holidays are fast-
approaching, making
this a good time to discuss
animal-centric organizations who
need your generous donations.
I invite you to join our clinic
in supporting what we feel are two very worthy
organizations this holiday season! We are holding a
Holiday Pet Food and Supply Drive for the Jackson
County Animal Care and Control Center and C.A.T.S
(Commited Alliance to Strays). Thanks to the generosity
of our clients for the past two years, we were able to
collect over 1,000 pounds of food along with blankets,
beds, collars, toys ofce supplies and more!
The J.C.A.C. and C.A.T.S provide care to
thousands of animals every year. Though
they are often over-capacity, they rarely
turn animals away, and they provide
excellent care for the animals in their
shelter. They depend on fees and
charges generated by their programs
(license fees, shelter-related
charges, adoption fees, donations)
for daily operation as well as
volunteer support and fnancial
support of donated funds and supplies.
Below is a list of supplies that both organizations
need—you can help by simply adding a few to your
grocery list, going through your cupboards, cleaning-
out your ofce, and digging through your garage. Then,
simply bring it to our clinic— Jacksonville Veterinary
Hospital, 937 N 5th Street in Jacksonville and we will
get it to them for you!
• Pet food—both canned/dry for cats, dogs, puppies,
and kitens
• Old towels and rags for cleaning/bathing the
• Old blankets, rugs, and other bedding
• Washable toys to help ease the stress of kennel life
• Bleach, laundry detergent, and dish soap
• Pet shampoos, grooming supplies, and clippers
• Clay cat liter and small liter pans
• Food bowls for both dogs and cats
• Spout-type watering cans for flling water bowls
• Collars and leashes
• Spiral Notebooks and copy paper
Another much-needed item that’s not on the list is
MONEY! A check payable to Jackson County Animal
Care and Control or C.A.T.S will be used to
purchase supplies as needed or can be
applied directly to the medical fund which
to care for the medical needs of animals
that fnd their way to the shelter (Please
specify in the memo portion of your
check). For those of us that are
unable to donate supplies or
funds, time is also a valuable
resource. Give the gift of your
time and volunteer!
During the holiday season, and all year long,
it is critical for us to share… so, Dig Deep into those
pockets and please remember to take a moment and give
thanks for the gifts that surround you. I hope you all
have a very wonderful holiday season!
The Family that Mucks Together Sticks Together:
Volunteering as a Family at Sanctuary One
by Westi Haughey, Sanctuary One Board Member & Volunteer
Is this a good idea? Doubt panged my mind as I loaded
my family into the car. Will they complain the whole time?
Will my daughter insist I carry her because she's "just too
tired?" Or will we have to turn around
and head home because of a meltdown?
We were headed to Sanctuary One
to volunteer as a family for the frst
time. I was already an experienced
Sanctuary volunteer, having spent
two years mucking the barnyard,
hiking with dogs and even
trimming goat hooves. But that was
without my family in tow, when
the day's chore list and connecting
with earth, people and animals
were my only concern. I shelved the uncertainty, turned
the key and rolled on.
Practical worries aside, the decision to volunteer as a
family was easy. When I frst suggested it to my husband
he agreed without hesitation. Surprised by his eagerness,
I pressed on explaining why I thought this was a good
idea. Service learning was a cornerstone of my childhood, I
clarifed. I can directly credit my personal and professional
success to those early years spent volunteering. He nodded. I
didn't need to explain the rest, because he was already on
board, but I continued to think about how giving your time,
without any compensation, is often the most rewarding
work you can ever do. We are so quick to teach children the
concept of working for an incentive, Mommy goes to work so
we have money to buy groceries or if you clean up your room we'll
get ice cream, that kids are often unfamiliar with the concept
of serving without a tangible beneft.
Beyond the service aspect, there's also the opportunity
to learn new skills: technical, physical and emotional.
At the farm you work directly with a variety of animals
who have greatly difering personalities and history.
Some animals require you to be calm and earn their
trust, others need you to help them keep their excitement
under control. You also quickly learn how to maneuver a
wheelbarrow, when to choose a square or round pointed
shovel, and how to negotiate a gate without leting an
eager animal loose. Whether your child is 5, or 25, these
basic skills are often outside of what kids learn today.
They've mastered technology, focused on the Common
Core at school, but forgoten (or completely skipped)
the basics. Sanctuary One's mission of caring for the
Earth, People and Animals, should
be the core of every child—every
And then there's the obvious
beneft: time spent outside with
your family, geting exercise and
breathing fresh air. For three to
four hours you are together, away
from technology (bonus: no cell
signal at the farm) and absent
from life's distractions. Instead of
nagging about homework, listening
to protests about limited TV time, or worrying about
chores, you can observe nature and talk about the big
ideas. Notice how the squirrels are gathering acorns for
winter? What are your goals for this year? How can we
incorporate the Sanctuary's principles into our daily lives?
So this was why we were here. We parked the car
and headed to the dog cotage. Both kids honed in
on two poodles currently in residence and selected
brightly colored leashes to their liking. We hiked for
an hour. No complaints, no fghting, even after a spill
down a rocky path and wet socks from splashing in
the creek, my kiddos were still game. We had smiles
on our faces and the dogs did, too.
Today, we have our own litle Sanctuary One routine.
My daughter and husband happily head over to the cat
cotage to meet the latest additions, clean and swing
a feather for playful cats. My son and I visit the dog
yard, where he loves throwing tennis balls for happy
retrievers while I fll water bowls and scoop up. Then we
all head out for a walk in the woods with four-legged
companions by our sides. It's prety simple and prety
great. I'm glad I put my doubts aside and shifted from
solo volunteer service to the whole clan. You can do it
too. Visit sanctuaryone.org to learn more.

At the request of Marge Wall, owner of Country Quilts, we
regretfully report the passing of her beloved Maltese dog, Tifany.
Tife was born January 27, 2002 and passed on September 24, 2014.
For more than 12 years, “Tife” was Marge’s constant companion
at home, at the shop and everywhere in-between. Tife was well-
known and adored by shop customers and friends who were
always greeted enthusiastically at the door by the spunky, white
Maltese. Tife is dearly missed by many, most-especially her
devoted mom, Marge.

The Kibble Conundrum
by Dr. Jeff Judkins, Animalkind Veterinary Clinic
Dr. Judkins is the owner of Animalkind
Holistic Veterinary Clinic in Jacksonville.
See ad below.
magine that you are 60-years-old
and—for your entire life—have
eaten nothing but a highly-
processed, dehydrated diet that comes in
a factory-sealed bag. No fresh food. No
vegetables or fruit.
Even if this diet were
100% nutritionally-
balanced, and was the
best “human kibble”
on the market—
organic even—how
healthy do you expect
you’d be? If you’re
thinking, “not very,”
then why would you
expect your dog or cat
to eat kibble every day
for 10 years and be
completely healthy?
The reality is
that animals and humans alike need
substantial amounts of fresh, minimally-
processed foods in their diets for optimal
health and vitality. Most of us understand
this for ourselves and our families, but
sometimes fail to realize that the same is
true for our pets. You might think that
your 9-year-old Labrador Retriever's
arthritic hips is a normal age-related
problem. But I've seen many dogs, well
over 10, who eat fresh, home-prepared
diets and are in the peak of health,
with beautiful coats and no arthritis
whatsoever. I've seen many cats on fresh
diets live well over 20 years without ever
sufering any serious health problems
with all their teeth intact! I would go as
far as to say that most of the chronic,
recurring health problems I see in my
patients are due in large part to their diet
of only processed foods such as kibble.
Most people don’t realize that dry
dog and cat foods are a relatively recent
invention. Up until World War II, most
dog food sold was canned and made
from horse meat. In 1950, Ralston Purina
recognized a market for the rapidly-
growing pet population, and developed
a technique by which ingredients were
pushed through a high pressure tube,
cooked quickly at high heat, and pufed
with air—the same process used to make
Chex breakfast cereal so it stays crispy
in milk. Purina Dog Chow was born and
became an instant success. Other pet
food companies quickly took notice and
followed suit. In the mid-60s, the Pet
Food Institute, a lobbying group for the
pet food industry, began an advertising
campaign to promote the benefts of
feeding dry kibble exclusively, even to
suggest that feeding table scraps was
dangerous. Soon cat kibble diets followed,
and by 1975, there were more than 1,500
brands of dry pet foods on the market.
So this brings us to the “conundrum.”
Dry kibble diets are certainly very
convenient, and in general quite
afordable. Pet food companies spend
billions of dollars a year convincing
us of the health benefts of their
particular brand. Veterinarians prescribe
commercial “prescription diets” to help
treat a wide variety of pet medical issues.
Until several years ago, I too believed
that a high quality dry dog or cat food
was the healthiest
way to feed a pet.
Certainly there is a
wide range of quality
in kibble diets,
ranging from very
good to frighteningly
bad, but in the last
few years I have
come to realize that
all “processed”
pet foods are by
their very nature
inadequate for
optimal health.
So, what’s so
bad about kibble and other processed
commercial foods? First, most kibble
diets have a high percentage of starches,
which are a cheap source of calories, and
the “glue” that holds kibbles together.
These starches are rapidly converted to
sugar during digestion, and contribute
to elevated levels of insulin in the
body. Persistently-elevated insulin
levels lead to a metabolic condition that
creates long-standing infammation
throughout an animal’s body. Examples
of diseases caused by this chronic diet-
induced infammation range from
arthritic joint disorders to urinary
tract infections, skin allergies and even
senility. Read “The Cause of all Illness”
htp://animalkindvet.com/illness from a
recent Jacksonville Review article for a
more in-depth discussion. Secondly,
processed foods have signifcantly
fewer vitamins and antioxidants than
good quality fresh foods. Omega 3
oils don’t survive heat processing and
storage well, and are almost always
defcient. Without adequate amounts
of these vital nutrients, tissues of the
body become “malnourished” and are
more susceptible to organ dysfunctions,
infections and even cancer.
An easy way to introduce your pet to
beter quality fresh foods is to start by
slowly adding fresh foods to your pet’s
current kibble diet. Lightly-browned
ground meats and organ meats and eggs
are a great start. Vegetables such carrots,
squash and leafy greens can be steamed or
pureed in a food processor and added in.
It is even possible to make pet food totally
from scratch, but it is very important to
insure a proper balance of nutrients. My
colleague Dr. Karen Becker’s excellent
book, Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats,
can help you formulate a fresh, homemade
diet for your dog or cat. K9 Kitchen, by
Monica Segal and Unlocking the Canine
Ancestral Diet by Steve Brown are also
great resources.

e lost our loving and dedicated wife, mother,
sister, and daughter, Linda Mae Brodie
September 28, 2014. She passed into heaven
peacefully at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center
with her loving husband, daughter, and son at her side.
She is survived by her husband, William
(Bill) Brodie; her daughter, Michele Brodie;
and her son, Scot Brodie (Kyleen). She is also
survived by her beloved mother, Edna Kemp;
two brothers, Roger and Randy; and two
sisters, Marilee and Cindy.
She was born May 6, 1946 in Coquille, Ore.
to Leland and Edna Marshall at Belle Knife
(her husband's grandmother's) Hospital. Bill
was born there one year earlier. Linda was the
oldest of fve children and one of her favorite
delights growing up was picking fowers.
She graduated from Coquille High School
where she was a Red Devil cheerleader.
She later atended Southwestern Oregon
Community College and Oregon State
University before graduating from the
University of Oregon Dental School where
she obtained her degree as a Registered
Dental Hygienist in 1968. It was there that she met
her beloved husband of 43 years. Bill and Linda were
married March 7, 1971 at the Coquille Methodist Church.
Linda joined Bill at Ft. Bragg, N.C. where he was a
general dentist in the U.S. Army. Later they moved to
Philadelphia, Pa. for two years and enjoyed many trips
along the East Coast. Their favorite place remained
Oregon and they returned to their home state and opened
the Brodie dental practice together in Jacksonville in 1974.
Their son Scot joined the practice in 2005.
Linda's passions were cooking, fower arranging and
the local farmers market. She also loved the outdoors and
enjoyed hiking around the Jacksonville Woodlands and
the Oregon coast. Linda loved to travel and she enjoyed
several trips throughout the world with her husband and
family. A favorite destination was Kauai.
Her greatest strength was caring for
her family and friends. She was known
for her generosity and kindness of
heart. Linda was most proud of being
a mother. She was always praying
for her family and was a member of
the Applegate Christian Fellowship
for over 30 years. One of her greatest
achievements was coordinating many
dental missions to Mexico where
she also served as a dental hygienist
alongside her family for over 20 years.
She was enriched by this experience and
admired by the rest of the team.
Linda will be deeply missed.
Everyone who met her was touched by
her richness of character, beautiful spirit
and selfessness.
Goodbye Sweetheart, we love you dearly and our
wonderful memories of you will live on in our hearts forever.
A memorial service was held for family and friends
in October at the Applegate Christian Fellowship with
Pastor Phil Evans ofciating. Donations in memory
of Linda may be made to Jacksonville Woodlands
Association, PO Box 1210, Jacksonville, OR 97530 or to
Applegate Christian Fellowship Missions, PO Box 1090,

sing a live tree for your holiday
decoration makes a lot of sense.
You may use the same tree for
a number of years if it is cared for in a
sufciently-large container, and of course,
you can plant the tree in your yard, or
perhaps donate it to a park.
There are just a few important tips you
need to follow to succeed
with a living Christmas tree.
Living trees are accustomed
to outdoor temperatures,
light levels, humidity and
moisture. Thus, a living tree
should be kept indoors for
somewhat less time than a cut
tree. If kept in a brightly-lit,
cool place (up to 65°F), and is
kept well-watered, you may
reasonably expect to keep
your living tree in the house
up to 12 days. However,
warmer temperatures or
lower light levels will shorten
the desirable time indoors.
Before bringing the tree into the house,
it will need about a week in a sheltered
place such as a carport, breezeway or
covered porch. While sheltered, you will
want to wash the tree with a strong spray
to remove old needles, dirt and natural
debris. Using an anti-transpirant (such
as “Wilt-Pruf”) at this time will greatly
reduce the amount of moisture lost while
inside, and thus reduce stress and the
possibility of damage to your living tree.
In the house, you will want to place
your living tree in the brightest spot, as
long as there are no heating vents nearby.
Never situate your living tree near a
freplace, stove or heat register.
If your living tree is in a container,
place the pot inside a larger tub with
no holes so you may water regularly.
To protect fooring, place a large plastic
sheet beneath the larger tub. If the tree is
balled and wrapped in burlap, place the
root ball directly into a large tub, and
back fll around the tree with poting
soil, bark chips, or sand to keep the tree
solidly upright, and to hold moisture
for the roots. In either case, water daily
while the tree is inside. An easy way to
do this is to empty several trays of ice
cubes over the top of the
roots each day. They’ll melt
slowly enough for the roots
to soak up all the water
without creating a puddle.
When decorating a live
tree, it’s best to use light
strands with small bulbs,
so the needles will not be
burned. The ornaments
should be kept light, not
heavy enough to bend, or
possibly break, the branches.
When the tree is returned
outdoors, it should take at least
two weeks to re-acclimate it.
Move it to a sheltered spot
outdoors where it will be out of direct
sunlight. Water it regularly. You may want
to prepare a planting hole or a place to heel it
in for the spring and summer, if you plan to
use the same tree in its pot next Christmas.
By following these guidelines, you
should have a healthy, living tree for
many Christmases, and a vigorous and
healthy tree for your garden, as well.

Enjoy Great LOCAL Wines: Recommendations for Thanksgiving Dinner!
© David Gibb Photography www.dgibbphoto.com
he holidays are quickly-approaching, which can be exciting and fun, but at
the same time overwhelming for many. Not only is there all of the shopping,
cleaning, decorating, and cooking involved, there’s ONE daunting question:
What wine should I serve with Thanksgiving dinner? In this issue, I'd like to
recommend some excellent local wines—next month, I’ll be making my Christmas
dinner recommendations!
Thanksgiving dinner at our house consists of roasted turkey, stufng, gravy, mashed
potatoes, bean casserole, homemade cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. With so many
diferent side dishes, herbs and favors, it’s challenging to know what wines to serve.
When asked what red and white wines they would recommend to serve at
Thanksgiving dinner, South Stage Cellars chose their 2009 Harmony, a blend of 81%
Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc resulting in a slightly-spicy wine with
hints of herbs, cherry and plum favors, and their 2012 Albarino. The Albarino has
scents of peaches and a litle citrus that pair well with this special turkey dinner.
Eden Vale Winery recommends their 2006 Tempranillo and 2009 Reserve
Chardonnay. The Tempranillo has blackberry fruit favors along with an earthy leather
component and fnishes with hints of cocoa. Tannins in this wine help give it structure
and stand out with all the harvest favors. Contrasting their red choice, the Chardonnay
has warm butery, oak-y notes with a crisp apple fnish to round out this wine.
Pinot Noir, a classic choice that helps lighten-up heavy Thanksgiving favors and
Chardonnay will compliment the several herbs and seasonings. This traditional
choice was selected by Schmidt Family Vineyards, their 2011 Pinot Noir. Raspberry
fruits and earthiness help describe this wine. The white wine, their 2012 Chardonnay,
a Gold Medal Winner in the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition aged
20% in New French oak and 80% Stainless Steel. This well-balanced wine has apple,
pear and a touch of nutiness notes.
In keeping with the classic choice of Pinot Noir, DANCIN Vineyards recommends
their 2012 Trata Pinot Noir, named after a traditional commemorative dance
performed in ancient Greece, aged for ffteen months in 100% French oak barrels. Their
2013 Chaustinelle Reserve Chardonnay consists of a blend of fve clones and aged in
both 100% French oak and stainless steel barrels.
Troon Vineyard decided to think outside the box—though not as in “boxed win,”
and ofered their 2011 Old Vine Meritage, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,
Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. With lots of great favors of blackberry, anise,
chocolate and leather, it pairs well and holds its own with dinner. The real surprise
is the white, their 2013 Semi-Sparkling White; a blend of Riesling, Early Muscat,
Gewurztraminer and a touch of Orange Muscat. The scents and favors of ripe oranges,
cantaloupe and apple all infused with the bubbles makes this a very festive wine on
your table that can easily carry you through dessert.
Blueberry, cherry and notes of pepper describe Slagle Creek Vineyards 2011 Syrah
and you can be assured of its quality as it took a Silver Medal at the World of Wine
Competition. Their 2013 Chardonnay has light foral aromas with hints of citrus and
apricot with a crisp fnish an elegant drinkable wine.
Red Lily chose their 2011 Tempranillo, a rich berry, spice and almost jammy wine.
While not a white, but a great choice nevertheless, 2012 Lily Girl Rose' that won
Double Gold in Savor NW Wine Competition, ofers a dryer Rose' that’s well-suited for
Thanksgiving dinner.
