3. DEFAULT: The Grantor, or any other person owing an obligation, the performance of which is secured by the Trust Deed, is in default and the Beneficiary seeks to foreclose the Trust Deed. The default for which foreclosure is made is Grantor’s failure to do the following:

(a) Failure to pay the entire amount due under the note and trust deed on December 1, 2013, maturity date; and

4. AMOUNT DUE: By reason of the default just described, the Beneficiary has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by the Trust Deed immediately due and payable, those sums being the following:

Principal balance of $66,756.31, together with unpaid interest of $4,895.44 through April 3, 2014, Trustee’s fees, attorney’s fees, costs of foreclosure and any sums advanced by the Beneficiary pursuant to the terms of the Trust Deed. Interest continues to accrue on the unpaid principal balance at the default rate of 18 per annum from April 4, 2014, until paid.


5. ELECTION TO SELL: The Beneficiary hereby elects to foreclose the Trust Deed by advertisement and sale as provided under ORS 86.705 to 86.815, and to cause the property to be sold at public auction to the highest bidder for cash, the Grantor’s interest in the described property which the Grantor had, or had the power to convey, at the time of the execution by the Grantor of the Trust Deed, together with any interest the Grantor or Grantor’s successor in interest acquired after the execution of the Trust Deed, to satisfy the obligations secured by the Trust Deed, including the expenses of the sale, compensation of the Trustee as provided by law and the reasonable fees of the Trustee’s attorneys.

a. payment to the Beneficiary of the entire amount then due, other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred;

b. curing any other default that is capable of being cured, by tendering the performance required under the obligation or Trust Deed; and

c. paying all costs and expenses actually incurred in enforcing the obligation and Trust Deed, together with the Trustee’s and attorney’s fees not exceeding the amount provided in ORS 86.778.


In constructing this notice, the masculine gender includes the feminine and the neuter, the singular includes the plural, the word “Grantor” includes any successor in interest to the Grantor as well as any other person owing an obligation, the performance of which is secured by the Trust Deed, and the words “Trustee” and “Beneficiary” include their respective successors in interest, if any.

My family and I would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who helped fight the fires that started on Sunday evening, the 13th, near mile post 43, on Highway 78.

The Interagency Fire Dispatch called back for confirmation on lightening strikes which hit multiple loctions.  Accolades go to the Crane Volunteer Fire Department for their initial response.  Neighbors, Jake Potter and Jim Kelly moved cows to the south side of the highway.  What a relief!  Many thanks go to Abe, Stacy, Tim and Bret Puckett for bringing their cat down to cut firebreaks.  The interagency fire crews were diligent, while spread way too thin with the number of fires to respond to.   Jon Reponen and the other fire bosses were patient with explanations and updates.  The entire Harney Electric crew was out on different locations watching lines and poles for safety and continued service.  The Harney County Sheriff’s deputies and the Oregon State Police responded immediately with landowner notifications of possible evacuations and patrols.  My apologies if I have forgotten anyone.

The bottom line is that all these efforts saved our headquarters and the best of our pasture, as well as all of a neighbors’ pasture.  The cat work saved another neighbors’ camp as well.  My family, tenants and I feel blessed and realize that it could have been an entirely different story.   Truly, at one point, I believed everything was lost.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost more and those who are still dealing with the burn.

May God Bless Us ALL,
Barbara Cannady, Caroline Manock, Carol Tullis, Karen and Luke Starbuck and Darin Goertzen.
