LUKE 24: 30, 31 VOUR COMMUNITV i Forest From page 1 a campground and where roads shbuld be built throughout the prop- erty. They were also taken on a hike through the farm and shown several areas filled with litter. It was then up to the children to decide whether or not to place gar- bage cans on their property or to ban outside residents from visiting. "Each child takes on a role of particular interest," said Lindsey Reeves, another organizer. "The directions of the inheritance is that they have to have a sustainable har- vest to pay taxes and support the family, so they have to follow the forest rules and regulations. That's one kid's duty and then another is really wanting to make sure the soil and water is conserved so that child really takes on wanting to understand compaction and ero- sion." The students were each given a packet of information, complete with questions for each station. Af- ter taking part in the hands-on ac- tivity at each station, students were asked to answer the questions which revolved around proper forestry practices. Aside from learning the differ- ence between silt and soil, students were granted the opportunity to bore a tree and taught how the technique can determine the age and volume of the tree. "They'll take the data back to their class and figure out how many trees they can harvest and how many they have to plant in order to stay sustainable," Reeves explained. Before heading back to the classroom, students also got a chance to go on the hunt for wildlife. "Down at the barn, they dis- sect owl pellets and learn about scat tracks and actually go out and look on the trails to see if they can track wildlife," Ash said. i Deaths From page 2 fore his death on Aug. 26, 1970 from cancer. On Oct. 9, 1971, Mrs. Horan married Earl Myers, also a product of the Blachly area and also involved in farming and mill work. They resided in Cheshire and to- gether enjoyed fishing, duck hunt- ing and gardening. Mr. Myers also died of cancer. Due to aging frailties, Mrs. Myers moved to Cascadia to live with her daughter, Joyce, for the remainder of her years. She was a devout member of Franklin Chris- tian Church, where she served as Sunday School superintendent and was active in the women's group as well as being a nursing home vol- unteer. Mrs. Myers worked at vari- ous and sundry jobs in local busi- nesses at Sweet Home, ending her working career as a cable-winder at White's Electronics. She was al- ways known for her pleasant smile, gentle disposition and willingness to help others. And her total dedi- cation in the love of her Lord. Mrs. Myers is. survived by her daughters, Francine (Elmer) Morlok and Joyce Keeney; step- son Leonard Horan; stepdaughters Helen Dornbusch and May (Mar- vin) Antrim; six grandchildren, six step-granddaughters and a host of extended family and friends. A memorial service in celebra- tion of her life and triumphant pas- sage into eternity was held May 19, at Franklin Christian Church in Junction City. Memorials in her memory may be made to Franklin Christian Church or a charity of choice. Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements. The Sweet Home Gleaners received a $5,000 donation from the Siletz Tribe recently for food purchases. Pres- ent at the presentation are, from left, Karen Gerttula, charitable fund member; Tammy Felkins of Sweet Home Gleaners; and Mike Holden, charitable fund member. Alert USFS to damage As forest trails and roads are opening for the summer, U.S. For- est Service officials ask that mem- bers of the public call when they see issues, such as fallen logs, so they can deal with winter damage.
