Morgan Of The New Era Mary Carter of Sweet Home was one of two recipients of new roofs provided by Stutzman and Kropf Contractors, Inc., of Al- bany this year. Carter, who lives in the 200 block of 9th Avenue, received her roof on May 25. "They had a little contest in the Albany Democrat-Herald," Carter said. "My neigh- bor saw it, and she gave it to my daughter." Two of her daughters nominated her for the free roof. "They did a beautiful job," Carter said. "It doesn't even look like the same place." "This is our fourth year of doing what we consider giving back to the community," Said Eugene Horvath, vice president and partner in Stutzman and Kropf. For the past four years, the company has given away a new roof, he said. Recipients are nominated by others with a letter of 200 words or less. The recipients must be contributors to the community but lack the resources to re- place damaged roofs, Horvath said. Their roofs must be leaky and in need of immediate repair. The letters are reviewed by a panel from Photo courtesy of Stutzman and Kropf Stutzman and Kropf employees replace the roof for free on a Ninth Avenue home belonging to Mary Carter.

On May 25, Stutzman and Kropf trucks and employees rolled up to Carter's door just about 7 a.m. and completed Carter's roof and hosted a barbecue just after noon. The panel selected Carter, a mother of five, grandmother of 17, great-grandmother of 33 and great-great-grandmother of two from 130 nominations from Florence to Eu- gene and Newport to Sweet Home, Horvath said. There were six finalists. The panel in- terviewed the finalists before awarding roofs to two. Carter's roof had four active leaks, with bad dry rot in the house, Horvath said. Her husband died in 2005, Horvath said, and she used the last of tile cash she had avail- able afterward to buy materials to replace her roof. Her family installed the new roof, but the roof didn't hold up and started leaking. Carter is active in her church, and based on information from her neighbors, she has taken in people who need help, Horvath said. Carter said she attends the Full Gospel Church of Sweet Home. "The Lord has just absolutely blessed me in so many ways," Carter said, and she also thanked Stutzman and Kropf. i Deaths From page 2 peacefully in her sleep.

Beck is taking a posi- tion in Creswell, and Barnhurst is moving to Wyoming. When Supt. Don Schrader learned that Beck had been hired in Creswell, he surveyed the Haw- thorne staff and set up a committee including, two teachers, a special education teacher, the secretaries, a couple of classified employees and a parent. The committee spent three days screening applications, Schrader said, and it chose five people to in- terview. In the meantime, Barnhurst turned in his resignation, Schrader said. He set up a similar process at Oak Heights. The Oak Heights com- mittee selected the same five for in- terviews but added three more. Augustadt and Henry were each committee's first choice, Schrader said. "It made it easy for me." " They were his choices too, he said. "From what I know of him (Au- gustadt), I think he is an elementary principle,;' Schrader said. "He's a kid-first person." He has run the school's PBIS program and helped create a climate of togetherness, Schrader said, and he Worked with Beck for four years on the school's programs. Schrader's question was whether Augustadt could have the hard conversations with a teacher if needed, he said. "Time will tell, but I think he can. But, to me, education is all about building relationships, and he can do that." Augustadt hasn't taught math or reading, Schrader said, but "he knows what good teaching looks like." He knows when students are engaged and lessons are good, Schrader said. Henry is an unbelievably cre- ative person, Schrader said, and Oak Heights will be a leader in technology with her. She knows what teaching is all about. She has been heavily involved with basets d blooms. CoME ONiN! in the professional learning com- munities concept, Schrader said. "She has been a leader at the Junior High for that." "She's going to a great job working with those kids," Schrader said. It's nice to have two new prin- ciples from the district, he said, and he noted that among those inter- viewed were applicants from out- side of Sweet Home. The board voted 6-0 to ap- prove the hires. Present were Chanz Keeney, Dale Keene, Chairman Ja- son Redick, Mike Reynolds, Jenny Daniels and Kevin Burger. Absent were Mike E. Adams and David VanDerlip. Concealed Handgun License Class Held locally in Sweet Home. We license for Oregon, Utah, Arizona Carry legally concealed in 36 states!
