Rose Ballard and Kamela Culver from Illinois Valley High School re- ceived honorable mentions for their presentation this month at the ninth annual Oregon State National History Day com- petition in Salem. Ballard and Culver earned their state berth by winning local and regional competition. Their sen- ior group documentary is titled, “Rights and Responsibilities of the Media in History: Princess Di.” “A Life With Dig- nity Committee” is sponsoring a petition to “fix” Oregon’s medical marijuana law. The intent is to make Oregon the first state where patients could acquire their medical mari- juana through state-regulated dispensaries. LAST WORDS -- *Whatever doesn’t make you stronger kills you. (Anonymous) *The bridges you cross before you come to them are over rivers that aren’t there. (Gene Brown) She said that Grants Pass Family YMCA still wants to be involved in the pool, whether the city or county continues to operate it. Kirchner said that she has enough money remaining from last year to open the pool for one month this summer, likely in early June. And by that time, she indicated, it’s hoped that the necessary mon- ies for this year’s budget will be available. The mayor, although not specifying where money would come from if the city takes over the pool, said that money is available. He said that costs could be lower, as the city would assume respon- sibility for items including maintenance, and water and sewer charges. “It’s the only thing out here,” he said of the pool, not- ing that it’s worth saving. County commissioners have indicated money is tight, but the mayor said that if the county would help fund it one more year, that the city could “transition” into the operation next year. Dyer and Councilman Dan Fiske are among mem- bers of the I.V. Pool Commit- tee working to keep the facil- ity open for the valley. Blanche M. Phlaum U.S. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Blanche M. Phlaum, granddaughter of Ronald Phlaum of Kerby, and a 1999 Illinois Valley High School graduate, is currently de- ployed to the Western Pacific and Arabian Gulf while as- signed to the aircraft carrier USS “Carl Vinson,” home- ported in Bremerton, Wash. Phlaum is one of more than 6,000 Pacific Fleet Sail- ors and Marines aboard the ships of the USS “Carl Vin- son” carrier battle group com- mitted to maintaining peace and stability in the Western Pacific region, said the Navy. During the deployment, volunteers from Phlaum’s ship gave a combined 420 man- hours of their liberty time to the Sae Doel Children’s Home during a port visit in Pusan, Republic of Korea. Phlaum’s ship also made port visits in Guam and Pearl Harbor, Ha- waii where Sailors had the opportunity to shop, sight-see and enjoy the culture and cui- sine. Aircraft carriers like USS “Carl Vinson” are deployed throughout the world to main- tain U.S. presence and provide rapid response in times of cri- sis, the Navy said. They serve as a highly visible deterrent to would-be aggressors, and are equipped with the most versa- tile and powerful weapons and aircraft available, it added. up to 50% off *Bird Feeders *Hanging Vases *Table Vases *Lampshade Specials *Oil Candles Dome School - 9367 Takilma Rd.
