CARD OF THANKS

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.

Resident has concerns about unlicensed vehicles on streets

by Randy Parks
Burns Times-Herald

The Burns City Council once again has a vacancy.

At the council meeting Wednesday, July 9, Mayor Craig LaFollette acknowledged a letter of resignation from Councilor Boyce LaForest. LaForest’s letter cited time restraints and work load as reasons for stepping down from the council seat.

LaForest said he would continue to serve for a limited time until a replacement can be appointed to the council.

During the citizens concerns portion of the meeting, Steve Ruzicka approached the council regarding unlicensed vehicles on the streets. He stated that driving is a privilege, and requirements include an operator license, license plate and insurance.

Ruzicka told the council he recently completed a defensive driving class where he was told one in five drivers are under the influence of drugs, alcohol or prescription medicine, another 20 percent of drivers are distracted by talking on cell phones, texting, laptops, pets, eating, etc., and another 20 percent of those behind the wheel are sleep-deprived.

He explained that he drives for the local Dial-A-Ride program, and that he is responsible for his passengers. Along with having to deal with drivers under the influence, distracted and/or sleep-deprived drivers, there are a number of vehicles on the streets that create a hazard, such as riding lawn mowers, golf carts, off-road vehicles and an unlicensed scooter. Ruzicka stated the vehicles are not licensed to be on the streets, and the operators don’t follow the laws of the roads. He said he had come to the council previously with the same concerns, yet nothing has been done.

“People say, ‘It’s Burns.’ I don’t know what that means,” Ruzicka said. “We’re an orderly society. And some people ask, ‘What harm does it do?’ Ask the kid who was killed on the bicycle last year. Those vehicles are hazards.”

He also questioned why bicyclists aren’t required to follow the rules of the road.

Burns resident Ron Carroll told the council that he has a concern about vehicles speeding in his neighborhood. “I think kids want to see how fast they can go down the street,” he said.

Councilor Terri Presley agreed that unlicensed vehicles and speeding are valid concerns, and added that the police are already busy every day. She suggested that maybe citizens could help out by reporting incidents to the police when they see them.

•••

Becky Cunningham told the council that Wayne Baron of 4R Recycling had recycling bins out on the street once again, and she gave the council a copy of a contract that she said Baron was providing to businesses.

Cunningham reminded the council that it had told Baron he was not allowed to place bins on the street to collect recycling material, yet he seemed to be operating without any regard to the council’s direction.

City Manager (CM) Kraig Cutsforth said he would check into the matter.

•••

CM Cutsforth reported the well for the fire suppression system at Burns airport had been dug and was producing clean water at 85 gallons per minute. The water tank had also been filled for testing, and the outside shell of the tank was to be installed over the next week’s time. “The entire thing should work out well.” Cutsforth said.

The cleaning up of nuisance properties is continuing, and Cutsforth said he had two residents come by city hall to express their appreciation of the clean-up efforts.

Fire Chief Scott Williamson stated that about 35 letters had been sent out to property owners asking them to clean up hazardous vegetation, and the process seems to be working.

Cutsforth met with the Department of Environmental Quality on several subjects, and is continuing to work on the issue of particulate matter exceeding allowable levels in the Burns/Hines area.

•••

In other business:

• the council approved a $100 donation to the Harney County Arts & Crafts  Association in support of the annual Quilt and Art Show;

• Cheryl Hancock asked for permission to close West D Street between North Broadway and Alvord from 4 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 7 for a block party in front of the Harney County Library. The council approved the request;

• Councilor Presley asked the council for permission to bring in an outside contractor to look at the roof on city hall to see what could be done to stop the leaks. She stated that if the city could do some of the repairs, it would save some money, and the council agreed.

The next council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 23, at city hall.

Quilts, Cars, & Coyotes

Posted on July 16th in News

 

The annual Quilt & Art Show was held Friday and Saturday, July 11 and 12, in Burns and Hines. Quilts of every style, color, and pattern, made by local residents, were on display at the Harney County Community Center and Chamber of Commerce, as well as 23 local businesses. The objective of the “Creature Competition” this year was to create a coyote (using any medium), and the art was auctioned at the community center. At the Burns Garage showroom, a quilt display accompanied an exhibition of antique cars. Other arts and crafts on display and for sale throughout the community included pottery, paintings, photography, and more. Several businesses in downtown Burns displayed merchandise on the sidewalks, which were decorated with chalk art and lined with quilt-themed flags. (Photos by STEVE HOWE)

Ferne Cagle 1921-2014

Posted on July 16th in Obituaries

OBIT CagleStephanie Ferne Barnes Cagle, 92, passed away Monday, July 7, at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend.

She was born Nov. 2, 1921, to Charles and Fannie Holloway Barnes in Burns. She was the first of six children, including a set of twins. Ferne was raised on the family ranch just south of Frenchglen.  She attended grade school in Frenchglen, and would walk one and a quarter miles to school most days. She attended Crane Union High School in Crane, staying in the dormitory. She was not able to go home very often, except for holidays, because of the distance and lack of transportation. In the summers, she would help during haying season by cooking for her father’s hay camps at Brenton Cabin and the P Ranch.

During WWII, she worked at the Portland ship yard doing office work and later worked for CC Anderson, a clothing company in Boise, Idaho. After WWII, she married Noel L. Cagle, whom she met before the war when he came west with the CCC to work on projects on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

They lived in Salinas, Calif., for a while where their son, Charles, was born. They moved back to Harney County and worked for Joe Fine on the Roaring Springs Ranch.  Later, they were hired on at the refuge and lived at Three Mile, Buena Vista Station, and Sod House, where their daughter, Nancy, was born.  After retiring, they moved to Hines.

Ferne’s passions were gardening and flowers.  For many years, she entered flowers in the county fair. She was a clerk for the Frenchglen School District,  a member of the Harney County CattleWomen,  the Sunrise Garden Club, American Auxiliary,  and was a life time member of the Elks Lodge No.1680.

She is survived by brother, Don “Jiggs” Barnes, and his wife, Lucille, of Burns; sisters, Jen Otley of Happy Valley, and Donna Jordan and husband, Lauren, of Pilot Rock; son, Charlie, and his wife, Lorna, of Burns; daughter, Nancy, and her husband, Tom, of Bonanza; grandsons, Jason, Bryan, Wes, Clint; great-grandsons, Dominic and Aidan; great-granddaughters, Laila, Addy and Bailey; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ferne was preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Fannie; her husband, Noel; and two sisters, Thelma Otley and Jo Urizar.

Contributions in Ferne Cagle’s memory may be made to the Harney County CattleWomen Scholarship Fund or to a charity of one’s choice, in care of LaFollette’s Chapel, P.O. Box 488, Burns, OR 97720. Go to www.lafolletteschapel.com to sign the guestbook and send your condolences to the family.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, July 19, at 10 a.m.  at St. Andrew’s Episcopal/Peace Lutheran Church in Burns.
