WIC not a ‘public charge’
Oregon WIC is assuring families that federal “public
charge” rules will not affect WIC services: WIC participants
cannot be penalized for seeking services such as nutrition
and breastfeeding support under the new rules that went
into effect Feb. 24.
Public charge is a term used by U.S. immigration officials
to describe a person who is primarily dependent on the gov-
ernment, and this can prevent immigration approval. On Jan.
27, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that lifted the injunc-
tion on the public charge rule placed by lower courts.
This rule makes it more difficult for immigrants to get
green cards,. and federal appeals courts had previously
issued injunctions blocking the rule. These rules will require
immigration caseworkers to consider the use of government
housing, food and medical assistance, as well as command
of the English language, in their immigration application
The North Central WIC program declares that the new
U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rules expand-
ing the definition of “public charge” do not affect those who
use WIC (Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women,
Infants and Children) and WIC participants should con-
tinue accessing WIC’s nutrition and breastfeeding support
Oregon Health Plan coverage for prenatal and postpartum
care and children younger than 21, school meals and Head
Start are also not affected by the new rules.
Confusion about the new rules has resulted in fear among
immigrants, and they are not seeking the care they need.
Families and communities can suffer short- and long-term
consequences when immigrant families are denied, or afraid
to access, the care they need.
Diversity makes communities stronger and more vi-
brant,” says local WIC coordinator Maricela Elias. “Oregon
immigrants and their families enrich our neighborhoods,
communities, and economy. When we ensure that all moth-
ers and children have what they need to lead healthy, happy
and productive lives, everyone benefits.” North Central WIC
staff will continue to inform participants that WIC is not
included in public charge. The Oregon Health Authority,
the state agency responsible for protecting the health of
Oregonians, encourages anyone with questions about
public charge to seek counsel from a qualified immigration
attorney. Call the Oregon Law Center-Legal Aid Services
of Oregon Public Benefits Hotline at 800-520-5292 or find
an immigration attorney through Oregon Immigration
In what should have
been its seventh year,
the Gorge Technology
Alliance (GTA) announced
today that the 2020 Wind
Challenge has been
canceled in response to
the novel coronavirus
(COVID-19) situation.
The event brings over 200
middle- and high-school
students and dozens of
volunteers from across six
counties together for a one-
day competition to build the
best wind turbine. This event
had been planned for March
14 at Fort Dalles Readiness
“We did not take cancel-
lation of this event lightly,”
said GTA Executive Director
Jessica Metta. “While Wind
Challenge has been a be-
loved staple for STEM edu-
cation in the Gorge for many
years, the safety of the stu-
dents and volunteers is our
top priority. We have been
monitoring the COVID-19
concerns very carefully and
felt it was best to cancel this
year’s event based on our
most up-to-date assessment
and in consideration of
general public health and
The planning team be-
hind Wind Challenge will
reconvene in a few months
to consider rescheduling
the event for Fall 2020.

Sandra Irene Sexton
passed away March 5, 2020,
peacefully in her home,
surrounded by her family.
Sandra was born Decem-
ber 26, 1940, in Superior
Wisc., the youngest of
three daughters, to
Charles and Mabel
In 1946, Sandra moved
with her parents to The
Dalles, Ore., where her fa-
ther helped work on the
old highway and her mother worked at The Dalles
General Hospital. Sandra proudly worked for Mid-Co-
lumbia Medical Center for 27 years, as their
“Medicare Biller.”
She was the self-appointed ‘haircut’ reminder for
all the men in the office and was not shy about telling
her bosses when it was time to visit the barber.
Sandra loved baseball, especially the Atlanta
Braves. She was thrilled with her retirement gift from
MCMC, which was an all-expense paid trip to Atlanta
to see her beloved Atlanta Braves in their home stadi-
Sandra was very active with her 1959 graduating
class from The Dalles High School, and when her
health allowed, participated in the planning and at-
tending of her class reunions, the most recent was
her 60th class reunion.
Sandra’s greatest joy was her granddaughters and
great-grandchildren. In April 2018, Sandra was
blessed beyond measure to get the first ‘boy’ baby to
be born in five generations, welcoming her great-
grandson to the family.
Sandra is survived by her daughters and son-in-
laws, Deanna Barnhouse (Tom), Debbie Wentz-
Cantrell (Michael); granddaughters, Rebekah Larsen
(Jered), Rheid Wentz (Jose Regalado); great-grandchil-
dren, Layla, Gracelyn and Levi (plus 2 bonus “greats”,
Harlan and Wesley). She was “Aunty” to many and
loved her nieces and nephews, making every effort to
attend graduations, weddings, showers and birthdays.
Sandra will be laid to rest at Three-Mile Cemetery,
(aka Park Lawn), Friday, March 13, 2020 at 11 a.m.,
with luncheon, laughter and memory sharing directly
following, at the Fort Dalles Riders Association Club
1023 Irvine Street, The Dalles, Oregon 97058.
Public is encouraged to attend both, as Sandra
would have wanted it that way.
Memorials may be made to Providence Hospice of
the Gorge.
