1F - August 8, 2012 VOU~. COMMUNITV Page 13 s w'fe I. By Scan C. Morgan Of The New Era One year ago Tuesday, Mark Joseph Hardin's wife, Angela Hardin, reported him missing, and she is hoping that someone will be able to shed light on what happened td him. Linn County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue looked for Hardin, who was 49, in the Upper Calappooia area for two weeks before calling an end to*the major search effort on Aug. 21, 2011. She told police that she saw him last on Aug. 5, 2011 and Sheriff Tim Mueller said he was last seen by a pair of transients camping about two miles from Hardin's vehicle on Aug. 7, 2011. At one point, 83 searchers, from Linn, Marion, Lane, Benton and Deschutes county sheriff's offices, were looking for Hardin, who enjoyed hiking in the Upper Calapooia area. Searchers located a water bottle, cigarette butts and a lighter in the first two days but not much else and logged more than 2,000 man hours of searching. When Hardin was reported missing, deputies located his Chevrolet Lumina near the 100 line gate off Upper Calapooia Road. There has been "basically nothing after they quit the search," Angela Hardin said. "I kept in contact with the Sheriff's Office. Unless there's more leads, there's nothing they can do. It's been a From page 11 He included the three headliners, as well as Holy, Young, Gilbert, and the Eli Young Band, before they dropped out. "It's been amazing," he said. "Being in the Sweet Spot is a blast." This was Garcia's first time at the Jamboree and hopes to return again. "It's hard for me because I'm a broke college student. I don't get to splurge on tickets," he said. Regrutto said most of the feed- back has been positive. "I have to say, we've received so many positive comments from pa- trons and from sponsors," she said, adding that the Jamboree's 20th an- niversary event has received more glowing reviews than ever during the time that she has been here. There have been negative com- ments too, identifying things the event staff will work on for 2013, Regmtto said; but overall the re- sponse has been positive. Some of the new twists this year included new seating for sponsors - a raised deck that included seats and tables, Regrutto said, and the spon- sors were "very, very happy." Jamboree staff members had been discussing ways to provide more space to sponsors, and Rob- ert Shamek came up with the idea of building upward, Regrutto said. Those tables will be for sale to the general public in 2013. The package Royal Deck," Regrutto said. It was available only through promotions. "You could only win your way onto the deck. That was really fun. It was probably the best view in the entire house." The Jamboree is planning to keep it and expand it, possibly the width of the stage deck. It's likely that winning a con- test will remain the only way to get up there too. "It's nice to be able to say you can only win your way onto it," Re- grutto said. "It's fun to build that ex- citement and anticipation." Regrutto credited volunteers and fan support with making the festival a success. "We are extremely grateful to the volunteers, the supervisors and fans who come out every year," she said. "We are so fortunate to have such great fans and great volunteers in our community." She also expressed gratitude to the community, which instead of treating the Jamboree like an incon- venience, treats it like an opportu- nity. Chris McAdams from Spring- field also said that she had a blast this year. "It's been great," she said. McAdams said she enjoyed all of the concerts, not having a spe- cific favorite. This was McAdams and her husband's 13th year at the Jamboree. "I worked seven days a week at a canning factory. Once it closed, we've come every year since. The atmosphere is great," McAdams said. "I'm so looking forward to next year. I'm ready to see Toby Keith." includes Sweet Spot tickets, meet- and-greet passes and more.

CCC picnic Aug. 22 at Longbow camp The Willamette National For- est will host its annual potluck pic- nic in celebration of the Civilian Conservation Corps Wednesday, Aug. 22 at Longbow Organization Camp. The picnic, which is sponsored by the US Forest Service, is hosted to honor the contributions of CCC Company 2097. Company 2097, formerly Company 1314, was organized in 1933. The members moved to Camp Cascadia, located along the South Santiam River east of Sweet Home, in 1934. While working in the Wil- lamette National Forest, Company 2097 built 35 miles of forest roads and 80 miles of trails; installed 17 miles of telephone lines; built 6 fire lookouts and 8 bridges; landscaped 4 acres of grounds near the Casca- dia Ranger Station; constructed 2 large dwellings, an office building and a gas and oil station; and con- structed House Rock, Fernview, and Trout Creek Campgrounds. The men also spent over 7,000 days fighting wildfires. Many of the Company's members stayed in Oregon, and have since become important figures in local commu- nities. "It is an honor to host this event and reconnect with these special public servants who ac- complished so much work includ- ing the construction of many of our roads, trails, and campgrounds that after 80 years are still a part of the National Forest landscape," said Cindy Glick, District Ranger for the Sweet Home Ranger District. Attendees are encouraged to bring photos, news clippings, and other memorabilia from the CCC years to share during the event. The celebration will begin at 11:00 a.m. with a potluck-style lunch at 12:30 p.m. Those who attend with last names beginning with A-H are asked to bring a hot dish, I-P a Salad, and Q-Z a dessert. Table service and beverages will be provided. Longbow Organization Camp, which was built by the CCC in the 1930s, is located 23 miles east of Sweet Home off Highway 20 near milepost 46.

Mark Hardin year, and nothing is happening This is the time of year when people are out in the woods, and she is hoping that someone will find something and report it or if anyone knows anything, he or she will come forward with the information. "I'm looking for answers I'm not going to get," Hardin said, but something might come up. "I go up there all the time." She takes flowers up to the area constantly, she said. It was a place he really enjoyed hiking. "I honestly don't think he's alive," Hardin said. "If he was alive, I would feel differently. I just want to know what happened to him." ,lamey Pharmacist the skin which is followed by a painful skin rash of blister-like lesions.

A. Sleep apnea, a condition where there are pauses in breathing during sleep, is most often due to upper airway tissues that collapse during sleep, obstructing airflow into the lungs. The consequences of this are serious, as sleep apnea can lead to greater risks of daytime sleepiness, stroke, heart attack and rhythm disturbances of the heart. Hypertension and diabetes can be harder to control. Up to 85 percent of overweight people with diabetes have sleep apnea, sometimes without any symptoms Some people are afraid to look for sleep apneo, because the idea of needing a' machine fo keep the airway open at night seems overwhelming.
