with storyteller Thomas Doty last
fall and recently with costumer
Cati I ho mas.
Thomas worked as a costumer in
England for six years before she
moved to the United States. For
the past six years she has been mak
ing costumes in Prineville for a
theater group and for school plays.
She has also been involved in doing
custom sewing. Her favorite cos
tume to create, she says, is "the
medieval dinner costume.
Because she is also familiar with
Native American costumes as her
two children are of Warm Springs
descent, she was asked to work
with students in Warm Springs.
Under her guidance, students at
various grade levels created shcilds.
vests and wing dresses.
She worked diligently with fifth
grade students who were getting
ready to participate in the Central
Oregon Arts Compact fundraiser
in Redmond on April I. The stu
dents performed the Lord's Prayer
in sign language.
The students do most of the
work, she relates, although she
helps in the construction of the
garment. The students are com
pletely responsible for their own
design and decoration. "The design
is all theirs," she explains. "I am
just guiding them along.. .showing
them how fabric can be used."
"The kids are very enthusiastic."
Thomas says. "It makes work with
them much more fun. She adds,
"This is what I like... It's been a real
pleasure" working with them.
The Artist in Education program
is organized regionally be Denissia
Withers with the assistance of a
board of directors. Many of the
artists are funded by the Oregon
Arts Commission, The National
Endowment for the Arts and local
school districts. Both Doty and
Thomas were sponsored 'by the
private Sheik Foundation.

Oregon Wyatt had made many
personal achievements while work
ing for PGE. He began his career
with the company after earning a
mathematics degree at the Univer-,
sity of Oregon. His first job was a
hydro-maintenance man at the
Round Butte facility. ,
After only five weeks in that
position, Wyatt bid on a Portland
position in the valuation depart
ment. He got the job.
That temporary position led in
1973 to a position as assistant
power scheduler in the Power opera
tion and he transferred the Inter
company Pool in Spokane which is
a power marketing agency involv
ing eight private utilities. He was
named power scheduling supervi
sor in 1977 andsays.lt was a "chal
lenging" job. It was in Spokane
that Jim met his wife Lexi.
When Round Butte superintendent
Bud Cato last year announced his
plans for retirement, Wyatt saw an
opportunity to return to Central
Oregon. "There's nothing for sure
in this world," he explains. He has
always wanted to come back to this
area where he finds enjoyment.
Also, he says, the experience as
superintendent at Round Butte will
be "beneficial"-. He explains that he
has already worked on the "mar
keting side" of power and will now
become involved in the"generating
Wyatt will oversee the operation
and maintenance of three hydro
electric projects in this area includ
ing Round Butte Dam, Pelton Dam
and the joint PGE and tribally
owned Pelton re-regulating Dam.
When not doing that he will be
spending time with his three child
ren, golfing and fishing.
Asked whether PGE will be reopen
