Meet Butterscotch, Our Watusi Cattle

Meet Butterscotch, one of our watusi cattle. Watusi have huge horns that can span up to eight feet! These horns are not just for self defense; blood vessels that run through the horns actually help cool them down so they don't get overheated. You can see them in the Africa section of our drive through.

New Interim Director Plans to Focus on Veterans' experiences at Roseburg VA

Kevin Forrest has been running the Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center for about a week now, and so far he said it feels a lot like home.

Forrest said the Roseburg VA reminds him of the Manchester, New Hampshire VA, where he most recently served as associate director. The Manchester VA takes care of 26,000 rural veterans, who are very engaged with the VA and how it delivers health care. Forrest said that’s a good thing.

“It’s their healthcare system, so we need to make sure we’re meeting their needs,” he said.

Forrest replaced Dave Whitmer, the previous interim director. Whitmer returned to Florida after about a year and will resume his work with the regional organization that oversees several large hospitals in the Southeast.

A permanent director has been selected, but his identity has not yet been announced, and he’s still undergoing the VA’s lengthy vetting process. Forrest said he’s been told he could be running the Roseburg VA for as many as 120 days.

Forrest is a veteran who spent 25 years in the Army Medical Service Corps. He first enlisted in the Army Reserves while taking a break from his college studies. He earned the money to finish his schooling and also gained medical laboratory training. After that, his path was clear.

“I knew that I wanted a career in the Army. I just loved it,” he said.

He finished school as an ROTC candidate and went on active duty after receiving his degree. He became a clinical laboratory officer, managing Army hospital labs and blood banks. Halfway through his career he attended graduate school at the University of Massachusetts, where he studied clinical lab science and health care administration.

“At that point I knew I wanted to do some more general administration in hospitals,” he said.

During his career he worked with the TriCare program that provides the military’s health insurance, and provided oversight for Army dental clinics in Europe before taking a post at the Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. Brooke is one of the Army’s flagship hospitals and operates as a burn center that has received many soldiers wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After that, he became deputy commander of the Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart in Georgia.

Forrest grew up in New Hampshire and was eager to return to New England, so upon leaving the Army he joined the Boston VA Medical Center administration until the associate director position opened up in Manchester. It was his dream job.

“It’s where I grew up. It’s where I came back to. It’s where I choose to get my care in the VA. To be able to come back and help lead that organization and take care of New Hampshire veterans is a true honor and blessing, to be honest with you,” he said.

For Forrest, the stint of directing the Roseburg VA is an opportunity to figure out if he’d like to advance to becoming the director of a VA hospital.

While he’s here, Forrest said his top priority is to focus on the experiences veterans have at the VA.

“Are they treated with dignity and respect? Are they finding it easy to get their appointment? Do they get called back if they have a question?” he said.

Forrest also wants to focus on employee engagement. He noted the top three concerns employees themselves said they had are communication, workload and accountability. He said it’s important that employees look forward to coming to work, and that they feel psychologically safe there — including feeling safe to bring up problems, especially with patient safety.

“Everybody needs to be comfortable in bringing up the hard issues. That’s the only way we can tackle them and fix them,” he said.

Dear Mom and Dad: Cool it

Verbal abuse blamed for shortage of officials January 15, 2019 by Peter Weber, OSAAtoday By Karissa Niehoff, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations and Peter Weber, Executive Director of the Oregon School Activities Association.

Verbal abuse blamed for shortage of officials
January 15, 2019 by Peter Weber, OSAAtoday

By Karissa Niehoff, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations and Peter Weber, Executive Director of the Oregon School Activities Association.

If you are the mother or father of a high school athlete here in Oregon, this message is primarily for you.

When you attend an athletic event that involves your son or daughter, cheer to your heart’s content, enjoy the camaraderie that high school sports offer and have fun. But when it comes to verbally criticizing game officials or coaches, cool it.

Make no mistake about it. Your passion is admired, and your support of the hometown team is needed. But so is your self-control. Yelling, screaming and berating the officials humiliates your child, annoys those sitting around you, embarrasses your child’s school and is the primary reason Oregon has an alarming shortage of high school officials.

It’s true. According to a recent survey by the National Association of Sports Officials, more than 75 percent of all high school officials say “adult behavior” is the primary reason they quit. And 80 percent of all young officials hang up their stripes after just two years of whistle blowing. Why? They don’t need your abuse.

Plus, there’s a ripple effect. There are more officials over 60 than under 30 in many areas. And as older, experienced officials retire, there aren’t enough younger ones to replace them. If there are no officials, there are no games. The shortage of licensed high school officials is severe enough in some areas that athletic events are being postponed or cancelled—especially at the freshman and junior varsity levels.

Research confirms that participation in high school sports and activities instills a sense of pride in school and community, teaches lifelong lessons like the value of teamwork and self-discipline and facilitates the physical and emotional development of those who participate. So, if the games go away because there aren’t enough men and women to officiate them, the loss will be infinitely greater than just an “L” on the scoreboard. It will be putting a dent in your community’s future.

If you would like to be a part of the solution to the shortage of high school officials, you can sign up to become a licensed official at HighSchoolOfficials.com. Otherwise, adult role models at high school athletic events here in Oregon are always welcome.

Still seeking to find her...Have You Seen Geraldine Galer? (Photo) - 01/07/19
WINSTON, Ore. - It has been 1 month since 77 year-old Geraldine Donna Galer of Winston was last seen. Deputies are still seeking information as to her whereabouts.

Galer was last seen driving a gray 2002 GMC Safari Van with Oregon license plate YRC203. She is described as 5'04'' tall, 130 lbs, with gray hair and brown eyes. She may be suffering from a medical condition which has caused confusion and an altered state of mind. She was last seen on December 8, 2018, at approximately 10:13 am in the 800-block of Summit View Avenue in Sutherlin.

"Mrs. Galer could be anywhere inside or outside of Douglas County because she was mobile in a vehicle. We really need the help of the community to be aware of this case and report any information to our office. We want to provide her loved ones with some answers," said Sgt. Brad O'Dell.

Ms. Galer's van had a spare tire on the rear passenger side. She was last known to be wearing a tan knit hat, black jacket, red gloves, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

Any information may be referred to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office at 541-440-4471.
