The Plant and the Hippo

by Laurie Pehl Jennings

One year after the stabbing death of her son, Tanner, Laurie found herself in

the psychiatric ward of Sacred Heart Hospital. Her daughter, Katie, had taken

her there as a last resort. She learned that her mother had been spending many

of her grief-filled nights in her hallway where her son had taken his last breath.

Forming herself into the position the police had found Tanner in, she would

fall asleep. In the hospital, she was asked to start a journal and write about the

turning point in her life, the death of her son. Heavily medicated, she picked up

her pen and began writing about a precious day when her young son brought

her home a Mother’s Day gift, a plant. Once home, she continued her journal

with an interesting twist; the plant and the hippo will tell the story from their

perspective about a young boy, his downfalls and his triumphs, and eventually

the witness to his horrific death.

“What can I do?” She usually responds, “Remember him; please don’t forget

him.”

Over the past four years since the completion of the book, Laurie has done

numerous book signings in western Washington and also asked to do a high

school assembly, as the book relates to many issues - teen-age depression,

teen-age love along with the heartache of young love, safety in meeting “new

friends,” unconditional mother’s love, grieving, and eventually climbing out

of the ‘rabbit holes.’ The audio version is in the works and should be available

later this year.

Book excerpt:

At first it appeared that Tanner was happy again, staying busy and spending

more time with friends, but Hill and I often discussed our apprehensions. And

then we saw it. One of his so-called friends came

by and we listened as he asked him if he would like to get high again, just

this one time.

“NO!” Hill screamed out to the young man. “Leave him alone!”

“Hill, it’s up to Tanner. Tanner needs to be strong. It’s not his friend’s fault.

Tanner needs to learn to say no. But it looks like this isn’t that time. I’m sorry,

little Hill. It is a sad day, indeed. Hill, why don’t you look away, maybe that

will be easier.”

Laurie would tell him how proud she was of him for kicking the habit and

give him big hugs, but Hill and I could see the other side of that hug, Tanner’s

face, and it was a very sad face behind her shoulder. She would be away for the

day and he would get high in the morning. By the time she came home, he had

made sure it had worn off enough that she would be unaware. When she went

to bed at night, he popped another. Hill and I cried together many times. How

could we fix him this time? What does it take?

Little did we know, Laurie had a plan of her own. She hadn’t missed a thing.

We were surprised, as was Tanner, to see her walk in early one day from work.

She talked to him about his day, about plans for dinner, and what his plans for

the evening might be.

“Do you think she notices he is high?” asked Hill.

“Well, she is acting like she doesn’t know, but she seems smarter than that.

Maybe she is saving it for later. She is talking and asking more questions than

usual. We’ll have to wait and see. Tanner looks guilty, and I’m sure she can

sense that. Clearly he hopes he has pulled this one off.”

With Tanner, my emotions can go in a million directions in one split second.

I wanted him to get caught. I wanted her to figure it out. I wanted him to hurt

from this so he might stop doing it. I wanted her to hurt enough that she would

get mad. And yet, at that moment, for some reason my heart was aching for

him enough that with just a look in his eyes, I suddenly wanted to hug him. I

loved him so.

“What? She’s going to bed without saying anything about it?” Hill was very

disappointed.

The next day Tanner and his mom went about their ways as with any of their

typical morning goodbyes, I love yous, etc. Hill and I had decided she must not

have known after all. We were simply helpless.

When Laurie arrived early from work again, she nervously awaited his return

from school. She was tearful. She watched from the window, occasionally

sitting down but shortly returning to the window, looking at the clock on the

wall. She paced.

“I think this, Hill, is what we have been waiting for.”

No sooner had he opened the door when she announced, “Hi Tanner. Leave

your bag here and lets go.” With a bewildered look, he followed her out the

door.

“Plant,” said Hill with disappointment, “I hate that we can’t see ‘the rest

of the story.’ We will only have hearsay, and Judge Judy says hearsay doesn’t

count.”

I smiled. “What do you mean, Hill?”

“We always hear what goes on in the house, but we never see what happens

out of the house. We always hear what someone else ends up saying later,” he

answered, hoping I would understand his strange way of explaining things.

“Don’t worry Hilly ole’ boy,” I reassured him. “We’ll hear about it all soon

enough.

“This book is so many things. I got it this morning and just finished it. It was

written by Laurie Jennings and it is about the teen life and murder of her son.

I never met Tanner but I feel like I got the opportunity. As I write this, it is still

very heavy on my heart. Brilliantly written. Thank you Laurie.”

“I read the story in two days – couldn’t put it down. I love the story being

told from a plant’s perspective, like seeing through a picture window. Amazing.

It truly touched me how she told the truth. She didn’t make her son the perfect

kid, nor her the perfect mother, but instead shared the real struggles. It made it

honest and lets us love him for the imperfect kid he was, the kind we all have.”

Tanner is the youngest son of Dave Pehl, Manager at Fogle Pump, who lives

in Colville. Dave and Laurie moved to Colville in 1989, when Dave began his

employment with Fogle Pump. Laurie now resides in Raymond, Washington.

Tanner’s surviving brothers and sister, Cameron, Katie, and Matt, all graduates

of Colville High School, now live in the Spokane area.

The book is available at Fogle Pump and Supply, in Colville, Washington,

Got the Home Schooling Blues?

by Eileen Pedersen, Trail, BC

I’m a retired school teacher with a passion for

kids--my social network for years. My classroom

was my canvas. I explored creativity, silliness--yes,

silliness; having fun, promoting self-expression,

inter-connectedness, mutual respect, visibility, and

confidence...all towards an optimal learning environment.

I miss kids. Hence, this article which has ideas

to maximize the extra effort currently required for

helping kids read.

Part One: Prepare the brain for learning

Make this a game, include the whole family,

award points. I did this three times each day and

it was beyond worth the effort with all grades, including

adults. It’s based on Educational Kinesiology--movement

for learning. Equipment required: a

glass of water. Total time: 5 minutes.

Steps:

One: FEED ME! Take a couple gulps of water.

Feeds and energizes the brain.

Two: GIMME OXYGEN! Left hand flat over navel.

Place thumb and forefinger of the right hand on

the soft area below the collar bone on either side of

the sternum. Press, making small one-inch circles

for 30 seconds while taking long slow breaths. Increases

oxygen flow to brain; promotes clear thinking.

Three: BRAIN, WAKE UP!!! Stand (sit), feet

shoulder length apart. Reach right hand across to

touch a raised left knee. Switch. Left hand to right

knee...back and forth for one slow minute. Activates

both hemispheres of the brain; promotes balance.

Four: RELAX ALREADY! Sit, extend legs,

cross ankles. Form an “X” with arms on chest,

palms flat, finger tips under the collar bone. Touch

roof of mouth (not teeth) with tip of tongue. Now,

take long, slow breaths for one minute. Relaxes and

clears emotions. (Do anytime! Drink water first.)

child dictate their very own story to you. They dictate;

you write their words, especially if they have

difficulty writing themselves or are too young to do

so.

Now you move from the child’s “journal entry”

of between two and six sentences, depending upon

reading fluency, to individual words and the letters

that make up those words.

How do you do this? By making up games in

which you and your child take turns getting the other

to “find” something within the story. You lead.

Make it easy at first.

Example: I asked my young grandson what it’s

like for him to stay inside and not go to school. I

asked how he felt about not going to school, and I

requested advice on how I could stay safe. I asked

what he does to stay healthy and finally, what he

would like for the whole world. By asking the him

how he experienced the pandemic, he had the opportunity

to express his knowledge and experience.

This sample lesson addressed the physical, mental,

emotional and spiritual aspects of his being.

Here’s what he said:

“It’s scary because people could die from the

coronavirus. I really miss playing with my friends.

You need to wash your hands and don’t sneeze on

people, Nona. I wash my hands all the time. I want

everyone to stay healthy”

So now you have a story to work with. Read it

together with you tracking each word with your finger.

Treasure hunt for words in the story...you pick

one word to find (or one sentence or paragraph at a

time, then s/he picks a word for you to find. Hints

are welcome. Also, your child can print one of the

words and omit a letter (or two or three) and YOU

have to guess the missing letters. Take turns. Imagine

all the learning that’s taking place, and, be prepared

to lose the game.

minutes. Re-read tomorrow. Be creative. Have fun!

Let me know how it goes.

The Reading Lesson

For me, the Whole Language approach to teaching

reading is the most successful. That means,

beginning with the “whole” (story) and progressing

to the “parts” that make up the whole. When I

introduced the novel, “Charlotte’s Web”, I showed

the movie first. Students had the sense of the whole

story before reading it, which made for a more positive

and successful learning experience.

You parents can easily adapt this by having your

With the word, corona, I asked my grandson if

he could spell it. I did not say “nope. that’s wrong.”

I told him which letters he got right, then asked him

to spell ‘car’, which he did. Then the lesson: Cor is

almost like car except with an ‘o’. Then, “can you

find ‘or’ inside of corona? ‘on’? a?” Find a compound

word, find one that rhymes with play. Whole to part.

Increase capacity. Eventually, have your child read

the first sentence and more by tracking each word

with her/his finger and eyes so they can’t make up

words. High fives, high twos, high thumbs throughout.

Reward at the end-- popcorn, 10 video games

An update on the commissioners misuse of homelessness

by Tim Rasmussen, Stevens County Prosecutor

The virus crisis has upset all scheduling in the

courts across the state and this has affected the

scheduling of motions and hearings in the case involving

the commissioners misuse of homelessness

funds.

Before the virus crisis arrived, a date had been

set for the Summary Judgment motion that might

have brought an end to this whole sad episode. That

date was April 24 and both sides were preparing

briefs for that deadline. But Judge Moreno notified

us that the date would not work and now the motion

will be moved till later. When it will be rescheduled

has not been decided at this time.

Meanwhile, the commissioners filed a notice of

Request for Discretionary Review with the Court

of Appeals. The commissioners want the court to

change Judge Moreno’s decision that they are not

entitled to an attorney at public expense. They claim

that they should be allowed to rely the fact they are

public officials and did not know they were doing

anything they did not have the right to do.

The filing of this motion by the commissioners

required a response from me. I worked with the

lawyer helping me and we filed a response to the

motion on Monday, April 6. The Court of Appeals

has set a date of April 15 for the hearing on the motion

for Discretionary Review.

Discretionary Review is exactly what it is called.

One side asks the court to just take a look at the

situation and stop the litigation before it is finished.

The rules provide four situations when a Request

for Discretionary Review can be filed. The commissioners

have relied on just one of the situations.

They argue that Judge Moreno has made such an obvious

error of law that the Court of Appeals should

recognize that her ruling was obviously wrong and

change it.

I do not think this motion will be successful. The

State Auditor decided that that the commissioner’s

actions amounted to illegal gifts of public funds.

Gifts of public funds are strictly prohibited by the

Constitution and the law. Judge Moreno carefully

applied the law and I am confident her decision was

not wrong, let alone an obvious error.

Holding persons accountable for their conduct or

misconduct can be a long and difficult process. It is

made even longer and more difficult when persons

refuse to accept responsibility for what they have

done and admit their mistakes.

It should be remembered that the proof in this

case is not required to be beyond a reasonable doubt.

That is the standard in criminal cases. This is a

civil case. The standard is much lower. The proof

has to be just by the greater weight of the evidence

or whatever is more likely. We will see what happens,

just a little later.

Stella’s Blue Ribbon Congo Bars

by Elizabeth Dengler, The Huckleberry Home

My daughter Stella

has entered the baking

competition at the

Spokane Co Fair for the

last couple years and

last summer she worked

harder than ever to perfect

her Congo Bar recipe.

After several test

batches trying out different

fats, nuts, additions,

etc and feedback

from my very generous

coworkers she landed on

the recipe below.

What I really love

about this recipe more

than how yummy they

are is the commitment

my 10 year old had to

creating an extraordinary

treat. Being in the

kitchen with kids is really

something special.

Consider the math lessons,

the science lessons,

the attention to following

directions and the critical

thinking involved in

baking in order for the

recipe to turn out. There

is also the bonus reward

at the end for all their labor

and it’s usually pretty

darn tasty. This is a

great recipe that kids can

do with minimal parental

assistance. You can

make the determination

what level of support

your kiddo will need.

After all, there’s an oven

and knife involved.

2 ¾ Cup all purpose

flour

1 ½ teaspoon baking

powder

1 teaspoon salt

⅔ Cup butter softened

(room temp)

1 Cup packed dark

brown sugar (light

brown sugar works fine

too)

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon instant

Colombian coffee powder

or espresso powder

(this is Stella’s secret

ingredient, if you don’t

have it you can omit)

1 package (11.5 oz)

semi-sweet chocolate

chunks, any chocolate

chip or combination of

chips will work in this

recipe

1 Cup chopped pecans

(optional)

Preheat oven to 350

degrees. Thoroughly

butter a 9x13 pan. Because

these are a bar

cookie we recommend

using parchment paper

or greased foil larger

than the pan to help with

lifting the bars out. If

you plan on leaving them

in the baking dish and

serving from there don’t

worry about this step.

In a medium bowl

which together flour,

baking powder, and salt.

Set aside.

In your mixer with

paddle attachment (or in

a large bowl you can stir

by hand) combine butter

and sugar. Add eggs, one

at a time, mixing on low

speed between each addition.

Add vanilla and

coffee powder. Once all

the ingredients are well

combined, add in the

flour mixture and mix

until well combined. Stir

in your chocolate chunks

and pecans.

Using a large spatula,

scrape the cookie dough

into your greased pan.

Spread the dough evenly

into the prepared baking

dish. Bake at 350

degrees for 30 minutes

until top is golden. Do

not over bake. Remove

from oven and cool in

the pan. Bar cookies

must cool completely

before you slice them or

remove them from the

pan, this is important or

you’ll ruin your batch.

They set while cooling.

It’s worth the wait.

Serving Lincoln County Since 1890

Davenport, WA • (509) 725-3161

Mental Health Needs Attention During Quarantine

Lincoln County, WA - The Lincoln County Health Department is encouraging Lincoln

County residents to be mindful of their mental health needs during the quarantine.

Govorner Jay Insee’s recent extension of the quarantine order for Washington State to

May 4th means people need to stay at home even longer than anticipated.

“We’ve asked residents not to neglect their physical health during this time by eating

healthy, remaining physically active and continuing to see their healthcare provider,

but we cannot afford to neglect mental health either,” said Ed Dzedzy, public health administrator

for Lincoln County. “The stress of the current pandemic along with uprooted

schedules and routines can take a toll on people.”

NEW Alliance Counseling Services, who has an office location in Davenport and

provides behavioral health services for Lincoln County, has offered the following tips

for maintaining mental health during this time:

1) Focus on what you can control v. what you cannot control

For example, we cannot control the weather, the tone of the media, the governor’s

order(s), or the attitude of another. We can influence some of these things by:

Scheduling activities that match the weather. For example, rainy weather for the

next few days? Plan a schedule that includes movie times, indoor exercise routine,

writing letters, indoor hobbies, etc. Sunny weather ahead—plan for an outing to the

park that utilizes social distancing but keeps us in the community.

Keeping media (TV, radio, etc.) to a minimum. Schedule a time during your day to

“check-in” with the latest news reports and keep your exposure to only those times.

A constant stream of media negatively impacts our emotions and thought-processes.

Stuck at home with a Negative Nelly? Find a place of solace where you can be

alone and gather your thoughts for a few minutes. Counter negative statements by

making positive statements to yourself, or out loud, when negativities enter the environment.

Use earphones or headsets to plug into an audio book for a while.

2) Reframe, reframe, reframe!

“We’re doomed” thinking will result in anxiety and depression. Try “wow, I now have

time to learn karate!” or “I can do an indoor start of those garden plants (and be home

to remember to water them!!”)

No one wants to or should gloss over reality. We need to acknowledge our reality.

But, we can learn and practice how to stay home without taxing our mental health.

Take a 5-minute check each hour to think about your thinking—what kind of thoughts

are you having? Are they helpful, true, and useful?? Be meaningful and purposeful in

learning a new skill, reading a book from cover to cover, joining an online exercise or

support group, start a new, fun habit.

3) Maintain a normal routine

This is not the time to practice habits that undermine your physical and mental

health. Maintain or adopt a daily exercise routine. Wake up and go to bed around the

same time, eat meals, shower, brush your teeth and comb your hair. Do not stay in

your PJ’s all day, every day. Laundry, housekeeping and other daily chores can remain

on the same schedule. Not only will sticking to your normal routine keep you active,

your mental adjustment overall is less necessary and it will be easier to readjust to

a work schedule once you return. Predictability is also helpful to those around you

and helps everyone with an easier adjustment in an all day, every day stay-at-home

environment.

4) Free-for-all muddling

If we let go of predictable schedules, we will find that boundaries and good habits

go out the window. We could find ourselves feeling lost and without purpose. Keep

your refrigerator stocked with healthy food options and keep meals on a schedule.

Plan for that night of “out-of-ordinary”, such as “Fun Fridays” or “Table-top Wednesdays”.

Use social media tools to keep in touch with friends and family in a way you’ve

not done before such as planning a Facetime mealtime as a group. Keep Saturday

morning (or day) as PJ Day, if that’s already a part of your home schedule. Organized

chaos can help clear the cobwebs and create a different focus. With all the insecurity

happening outside your home, keep the inside organized, predictable and clean, planning

fun and “unpredictable” times that balance good health.

5) Find resources available to talk to a professional if your mental health

becomes unmanageable.

There are a multitude of online resources available through video, text, chat or

phone. NEWACS is now able to meet with individuals via phone or video-conferencing.

Their website is https://newacs.stevenscountywa.gov/

FRESH CHUCKLEBERRIES!

Warning! Not to be taken internally, literally, or seriously!

“Laughter

is the shortest distance

between two people.”

~ Victor Borge

“You don’t stop laughing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop laughing.” -- Anonymous

Going to feel bad for

all the teachers next

year who hear “that’s

not how my mom taught

me to do it” from their

students.

A man goes to the

doctor with a strawberry

growing out of his head.

The doctor says, “I’ll

give you some cream to

put on that.”

I married my wife for

her looks...

...but not the ones she’s

been giving me lately.

The longer I stay

home, the more

homeless I look.

Imagine if this

lockdown happened 18

years ago. You would

be stuck with a Nokia

3310 flip phone with

300 texts, 100 minutes

of talk time, and dial up

Internet on your 256k

computer.

The year is 1996, it’s

Friday, you head to

Blockbuster with your

dad and rent one or two

movies to watch for the

weekend. Life is good.

Bubba and Johnny

Ray were sittin’ on the

front porch when a large

truck hauling rolls and

rolls of sod went by.

“I’m gonna

do dat when I win the

lottery,” said Bubba.

“Do what?”

asked Johnny Ray.

“Send my yard

out to be mowed.”

Q: Where did

Terminator find the

toilet paper?

A. Aisle B. Back.

I imagine by now that

a lot of husbands are

ready to build that She

Shed.

Gonna ask my mom if

that offer to slap me into

next year is still on the

table.

And just like that,

people who hate plastic

straws and bags, like

plastic gloves.

Lockdown update:

Today I melted an ice

cube with my mind just

by staring at it. It took a

lot longer than I thought

it would.

If they had just called

it the “Stay at Home

Challenge” and posted it

on Facebook, the virus

would be gone by now.

Let’s play a fun game!

Someone deposit money

into my bank account

I’ll try to guess who it

was!

Anyone else’s car

getting three weeks to

the gallon now?

My child just said, “I

hope I don’t have the

same teacher next year.”

Remember wishing

the weekend would last

forever?

Happy now?!?!?

Son: Dad! The lunch

lady said some really

bad words today!

Dad: Just let it go, son.

Your mom is just under

a lot of stress these

days...

Remember: the check

you’re going to be

getting is to stimulate

the American economy,

so Buy American, Buy

Local, and Be Thankful.

The World Tongue-

Twister champion just

got arrested. I hear

they’re going to give

him a really tough

sentence.

Betty: My memory is

so bad!

Suzie: How bad is it?

Betty: How bad is what?

I said to the salesman,

“I’d like a car for my

wife. He said, “I’m

sorry, sir, we don’t do

swaps.”

Having trouble leaving

my optician girlfriend.

When I say, I can’t

see you anymore, she

moves closer and says,

can you see me now?

Cops these days be

like: “Come out with

your hands washed!”

I’m a huge fan of the

raw egg diet. If you

don’t like the taste, just

add flour, sugar, butter,

and baking powder and

bake for 30 minutes.

Parents: Why don’t

my kids listen to me?

God: LOL

Q: Is Google male or

female?

A: Female, because it

doesn’t let you finish a

sentence before making

a suggestion.

Three old ladies

are sitting around a

table playing bridge

and bragging about

their sons. “My son

Freddie,” said Margaret,

“Everyone should be

so lucky to have a

son like my Freddie.

Once a week he brings

me a huge bouquet of

flowers, he’s constantly

bringing me out to

restaurants to eat. If I

so much as hint that

I want something the

next morning it’s on my

doorstep.”

“That’s very nice

about your Freddie,”

says Gertrude. “But

with all due respect,

when I think about the

way my son, Sammy

takes care of me, it just

can’t compare. Every

morning as soon as I

wake up he comes to

my house with pastry,

fruit, and freshly brewed

coffee. Every lunch he

comes over and cooks

me a gourmet lunch,

and every supper he

brings me to his house

for supper. He truly

treats me like a queen.”

“WELL!” Says

Barbara “I don’t want

to make any of you

feel bad or anything,

but wait until you hear

about my son Harry,

twice a week he pays

someone $200 an hour

just so he can lie on

their couch and talk to

them, and who do you

think he speaks about

at those prices? I’ll

tell you who he speaks

about! ME!”

A Canna State of Mind

By Jerry Rodriguez

As an individual that is wired a little different than everyone else, I have

had many different chemical cocktails used to stabilize what they deemed a

disorder. I am clinically diagnosed as Bipolar 2, ADHD, and anxiety. In the

2nd grade I was diagnosed with ADHD by a doctor at Kaiser in Riverside, CA

and began my unfortunate relationship with chemicals to alter my chemical

imbalances. It later became Prozac, Norpramine, Dexadrine, Aderal, Serequal,

Welbutrin, and when finally diagnosed Bipolar 2 as an adult they added Lamictal,

and a few different tranquilizers. There was always a different combination

and always a regurgitation and experimenting when I started with a new therapist.

They wanted to try the same chemicals that always only got part of the job

done. My fondest memory of medication adjustments was when I was taken off

of, I believe Norporamine; because it was causing cardiac arrest in teenagers.

That was the first time I became leery of what these doctors wanted to give me.

I was still a teenager, so I did what I was told but never felt right about it.

My approach to my mental health changed greatly when I was planning

on moving from California to Washington and losing my medical insurance. I

knew that I had to find another way because I could not move states and have

a come-apart and lose a new job or worse. This meant I needed to find a way

to treat the imbalance with alternatives. This led me to the best control of my

life up until that point. I went completely away from prescribed medication

and I started adding to my diet many different nutrients that feed the brain the

chemicals it is lacking. I dove into books and read about doctors that believed

many mental disorders were caused by nutrition deficiencies. I added and took

away and exercised, meditated and went completely holistic in my approach to

finding my balance. This all worked great for my ADHD but didn’t really touch

my Bipolar 2 and anxiety. I tried a few different supplements but never found a

solid answer to my mood swings and panic attacks.

That all changed about two years ago when I was introduced to CBD

because I was dealing with joint pain and other pain issues. My wife was also

trying to treat her neuropathy with CBD as well because so many had told us

the wonders it did for pain. They were correct except many forgot one key fact.

For us, however, CBD worked much better when combined with THC. This is

due to what is known as the entourage effect. Which basically means that the

numerous cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant work best when they are

completely together.

During my search one day for a better CBD dominate strain, I got into a

conversation with a BudTender at a shop in Airway Heights, WA. He shared

with me that CBD was not only good for pain but also mood enhancement. As

I investigated his claim, I found information that shows that CBD can take a

good mood that is usually transient, or short lived and stretch it out for a much

longer duration. This had me very intrigued because it seemed to be the missing

ingredient to my mental health cocktail. I spent the next few months speaking

to doctors and counselors and any professional that would listen, to make

sure I was on the correct path. Often, I got the same old not enough research

statement but it also came with, if it is working, it is working.

That is exactly what it does too. It works and basically kills two birds with

one toke. What I found was that it took my good moods and stretched them out

through my day. So, I begin each day with a toke and then listen to uplifting

music or some comedy or talk to someone and try to laugh and smile as much

as possible. This combined with meditation my days seem to be much more

mellow and stable. This all works because of what we now know to be the ECS

(endocannabinoid system,) which is an inner receptor system in each of our

bodies that is designed to process cannabinoids like CBD/THC/THCV and so

many more. In high school and into my early 20s I had a very fond relationship

with cannabis and now I understand why, much more than I did then.

My methods are not perfect for everyone and is what I have found to work

for me. I strongly urge you to do some research and talk to multiple doctors to

find the best choices to bring great balance into your life.

Look for the Helpers

by Joyce Mings, Almira, WA

In rural America, you don’t have to look far for

the helpers. We help each other out. I did not have to

look any further than my own family for this story.

My brother and sister in law, Bill and Molly

Shuler, have taken on a task that they never dreamed

would become this huge.

In late October 2019, Molly landed in emergency

where they found a huge brain tumor. The

doctor told them it had probably been growing for

30 years. Surgery was scheduled for the following

day. Bill went home that night and prayed hard. He

begged that Molly would live through this. If she

did, he would do literally anything asked of him for

that precious gift. Fast forward to March 2020 and

Molly has made a full recovery with no long-term

effects. This baffles even the doctors.

As Covid-19 takes center stage in everyone’s

life, Bill is finding out through Firefighter friends

and the pharmacy he works for that there are no

masks available to buy for front line workers. He

woke the following Monday morning knowing

what was being asked of him. With Molly’s help,

they researched the best patterns and materials for

homemade masks. Molly worked with a few of

the patterns and made a few prototypes. Then on

March 16, Bill made a life changing call by contacting

Cathy Doer of the Inland Northwest Chapter of

the American Sewing Guild. He was trying to find

a source for the polypropylene fabric that they had

identified as the most effective for the masks. In a

matter of minutes, Cathy said, “Let’s go then!” and a

partnership was formed. Bill contacted the Spokane

Fire Department to get the first order (cost only).

They were still trying to navigate the criteria that

they had to adhere to. Firefighters had been ordered

to wear masks at all times unless they are eating

or drinking, but weren’t sure what masks qualified.

Therefore, with no seed money, Bill went shopping

with $1,500 of his own money for the proper materials.

Cathy had six small shops organized and ready

to go in a matter of two days. They would cut kits

and sew what they could, as well as get the word out

that help was needed. They would also serve as pick

up and drop off locations for kits and masks. Those

volunteers answered the call with fury! Most of

them over the age of 50! By the following Monday

they had 1,000 masks and by Tuesday 2,000. As of

April 8 (18 days later), they have made 13,692 and

distributed them all over Eastern WA. They currently

have an order from Fairchild Air force Base

for 6000 more.

Bill has devoted 13 to 14 hours per day, every

day to this project since day one. His employer still

pays his salary because he believes in the mission.

Molly makes kits, sews masks, manages their Facebook

page and still teaches school! Their Facebook

page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/

Masksforhealth/ Find and follow it please.

Each one of these small shops have donated hundreds,

if not thousands of dollars of material and

untold time to this project. Every once in a while,

Bill will ask Cathy if the volunteers can continue.

The answer is always, “Of course!” Their last big

project was Joey bags for the orphaned kangaroos

due to the Australian wildfires.

The project needs your help. There have been

days when they have run out of funds and didn’t

think they could continue. The masks each cost

$.50 to make. Some that have been able to pay have

given $1.00 a mask, but they still need more money

to continue. If you would like to make a donation,

The American Sewing Guild is a 501 c 3 non-profit.

You can send your donations to American Sewing
