Court discusses sage grouse

by Steve Howe
Burns Times-Herald

David Ward was appointed the new Harney County sheriff on Friday, Dec. 5. He will serve out the remainder of Sheriff Dave Glerup’s term until the next general election in November 2016.

A special session of the county court was held Tuesday, Dec. 2, with the purpose of discussing the appointment.

Sheriff Dave Glerup requested that a decision be made as soon as possible so he could introduce the new sheriff at the upcoming Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association’s annual conference, scheduled for Dec. 7-10.

Judge Steve Grasty suggested the formation of an appointment committee to review applications, interview applicants, and make a recommendation to the court. It was decided the committee would include two representatives of law enforcement, one county court member, one representative from rural Harney County, one business owner, one representative from tribal law enforcement, and a representative from the Harney County district attorney’s office. Grasty agreed to contact possible committee representatives immediately after the meeting.

At the regular meeting of the court Wednesday, Dec. 3, it was announced that the committee would include Jan Oswald, Commissioner Pete Runnels, Carol Dunten, Deputy District Attorney Joey Lucas, the Burns Paiute Tribe’s Chief of Police Carmen Smith, Hines Chief of Police Ryan DeLange, Oregon State Police Officer Brian Williams, and Shane Otley, with alternates if needed.

The appointment committee met with four applicants Friday, Dec. 5 at 8 a.m. The court then convened at 1:30 p.m. They received the committee’s recommendation, interviewed the applicants, and voted to appoint Ward as the new Harney County sheriff, effective Jan. 2.

•••

The court had a lengthy discussion regarding land use regulation and sage grouse. It was a work session only, and no decisions were made.

Grasty said that conservation groups are concerned with development in the region and its effects on sage grouse and their habitat, and want to place limits on it.

Grasty said he and Harney County Planning Director Brandon McMullen had put together a list of potential types of development and mapped out where in the county they would be most likely to occur, in order to respond to these groups.

Commissioner Dan Nichols expressed concern about “building a wall” around these development options.

Grasty said discussions will continue and no commitments will be made yet.

•••

Mike Simpson with the Training & Employment Consortium (TEC) was present at the meeting to discuss the need for funding assistance for the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps. He said the loss of funding from the Harney County Commission on Children & Families has impacted OYCC’s programs, and that it is in need of additional funds to continue the OYCC Community Stewardship Corps, a program that works with at-risk youth through the alternative school. Simpson requested $12,500 for program funding through the calendar year 2015.

Nichols noted that this was the first request received for money from fund No. 236, and he made a motion to grant TEC the full amount requested. The motion carried unanimously. Nichols added that he would provide the court with procedures on how to address future requests from this fund.

•••

County Clerk Derrin “Dag” Robinson provided an update on the Measure 92 (GMO-labeling) recount, which took place Dec. 2. The result added two “yes” votes. One was an error in duplication during the pre-inspection process, and the other was an indeterminate reading from the tally machine.

•••

In other business, the court:

• Reviewed vouchers and approved them by signatures;

• was asked by Barbara Cannady whether there would be a resolution for the acceptance of the Harney County road map inventory? Grasty explained that the map has been recognized and is on file, and there will be no resolution;

• reviewed and discussed the Harney County Health Department civil rights self-assessment;

• reviewed water use requests.

The next meeting of the county court will be held Wednesday, Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. in Judge Grasty’s office at the courthouse.

‘Meet and greet’ with past, present owners on Dec. 13

The Book Parlor, located at 433 N. Broadway Ave. in Burns, will celebrate its 20th anniversary Saturday, Dec. 13.

In addition to a storewide sale, the celebration will feature prize drawings and an opportunity to mingle with the parlor’s past and present owners, who will be available for a “meet and greet” from 4 to 6 p.m.

Chapter 1: Inspired by an old building

About 20 years ago, Ramona Bishop and her daughter, Tracee (McGee) Aarestad, were eating Chinese food at the Hilander Restaurant in Burns when they fell in love with the “very interesting, but elderly” building next door.

They decided that the building — which featured brick walls, a skylight, and original wood floors — would be an ideal location for a family business. And being a couple of bookworms, it didn’t take long for them to determine what type of business it should be.

Unfortunately, the building required quite a bit of renovation, so they were forced to expel a healthy helping of elbow grease before they could begin stocking the shelves. Fortunately, however, they had what it took to tackle the task, and the Book Parlor opened for business in 1994.

Bishop said the store became “a great social gathering place.”

The Book Parlor was home to a book club, which met monthly to discuss literature. Others used the store to share stories regarding their recent travel adventures.

“It was really fun,” Bishop said about owning the business. She added that she and Aarestad consider owning the Book Parlor to be one of the best experiences of their lives.

 Although it’s location and ownership have changed over the years, the book store continues to serve as a social hub for bookworms throughout Harney County. (Submitted photo)

Chapter 2: Changing hands, location

After about 10 years, the mother-daughter-duo decided to transfer ownership to Janice Morefield, who moved the business to its current location.

During her tenure, Morefield cultivated the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere that helped inspire the store’s current owners to purchase the business.

Chapter 3: Robbins’ take the reins

Owners of Robbins Farm Equipment in Burns and Christmas Valley, Kris and Maranda Robbins decided to branch out into the bookstore business by purchasing the Book Parlor on Jan. 25, 2010.

Maranda, who manages the counter, said her favorite thing about owning the Book Parlor is “seeing friendly faces everyday.”

“If I didn’t have the customers that I have, it wouldn’t be as much fun,” she said, adding that owning the store has enabled her to forge new friendships.

The store’s family-friendly environment also provides a place for the Robbins’ children Alivia, 13, Trenton, 10, and Addison, 7, to come after school. (The couple’s fourth child is due in January.)

Alivia shares her mother’s love for reading and is especially excited when a new order of books arrives at the store.

Chapter 4: Engaging young readers

In addition to featuring a children’s section, the Book Parlor works closely with local schools to promote literacy and get books into the hands of children.

Last year, the Book Parlor also collaborated with Harney District Hospital to jump-start Reach Out and Read®, a literacy program in which doctors “prescribe” reading to young children and their parents.

The Book Parlor has also hosted S.A. Bodeen, a young adult and children’s author, who read her books aloud to Slater Elementary School students.

Chapter 5: ‘A place to visit, browse, and buy’

In addition to author readings, the Book Parlor has hosted an array of community events, including book signings, musical performances, and holiday parties.

Witches Night Out has become an annual favorite, with “witches” of all ages dressing up in silly socks and pointy hats to celebrate Halloween.

The store also hosts an Ugly Sweater Social, in which participants don their tackiest Christmas attire in an effort to earn a prize. (This year, the Ugly Sweater Social will coincide with the anniversary celebration, taking place Dec. 13 from 4-6 p.m.)

The store is also home to a knitting group, which meets every Tuesday to swap stories, unwind and work on projects.

Other customers flock to the shop to catch up over a cup of coffee, while browsing the store’s collection of books, gifts, home and garden decor, Life is good® clothing, Leanin’ Tree® greeting cards, journals, book lights, and “shabby chic” furniture.

Recently featured as a favorite neighborhood bookstore in AAA’s Via travel magazine, the Book Parlor was described as “a place to visit, browse, and buy.”

As it approaches its second decade in business, the Book Parlor continues to serve as a social hub, while providing access to books for readers of all ages.
