If you have other views she would be happy to hear them — and apologies to all the wonderful volunteers who did not get named in the responses. We are a new family that moved Find Chiloquin just over a year ago. Here are my questions:. You have to get to know your neighbors, or you will be doing what many do, and packing up to leave again. There are many ways to accomplish this. There are dozens of organizations looking for volunteers and any one of them would welcome you.
Once you become part of any organization those people can help you find things. Where to go fishing. Specific details would help new residents as well as visitors. Same with hunting, or skiing, or boating. It has as much information as they could find on all of those things — fishing, hunting, canoeing, hiking, birding, shopping, lodging, eating, services, phone s. This is an entirely volunteer effort.
They spend the time contacting people, hunting down businesses to advertise to fund the newspaper, reminding people to send in events for the calendar, getting it printed and distributed to all the local businesses. It takes a lot of time and effort and they do it just to help the community. Then the question becomes, where to buy what we Find Chiloquin. You have moved to a very poor county. There is not a lot for sale because there are not a lot of people who can afford to buy anything.
Businesses are going out of business because of lack of sales. Do you buy gifts at Two Rivers Gallery to support them or do you buy your gifts online? Without support the local businesses cannot survive and new ones cannot get started. Now we go to the internet for our needs. Yet nothing in Klamath is up to date. Some is decades old.
No problem, go elsewhere. You are quite right though.
The only information online for many businesses Find Chiloquin that put there by the various online yellow s and it is not up to date and mostly has no useful information. This is not a community of computer users, and many of the businesses simply cannot afford a website. They are struggling just to make the rent without the added costs of advertising and internet services.
To that end, Pat Lanctot began the Chiloquin. This, once again was a completely volunteer effort by Pat. This website is set up so that all the businesses can at least be listed for freeand those that want more information can have their own for a minimal charge. It is still under construction and there are more businesses to be Find Chiloquin, but it is almost there. It does only cover the Chiloquin area though, not Klamath Falls.
The Shooting Range at Kingsley Field is still listed on the net as a public shooting range. I had to call the County Commissioner to get a phone for Kingsley Field just to get the update. I would think that a gun shop would be the place to find that kind of information. It is a somewhat convoluted path but I was able to find a phone for Kingsley Field online without calling the County Commissioner. One of the problems with using the internet for research is that many s are in the cloud forever, regardless of when they were posted.
I note that many things mentioned in the newspaper are reported in a way that leaves only the long term residents with where things are. Funny how you speak to one resident that has been here for decades and they know where things are.
The best kept secret seems to be what we have to offer and where it is. I publish the Chiloquin News but I am not a reporter. It states quite clearly that articles published in the Chiloquin News are by submission.
That means that I do not go out and find the news, people send it to me, and I publish what they send. The Chiloquin News is also a volunteer effort.
It does seem to me though that posters and so forth that are submitted to the Chiloquin News generally state very clearly where and when events are going to take place. After all, these people do want you to show up at their event. Long-term also leaves things a bit up in the air. I have been here 7 years. Does that make me long-term? I still think of myself as a newcomer. I think though, that because I began volunteering at Two Find Chiloquin Gallery the first year I was here, I had already met several truly long-term residents and started learning about the area right from the time of my arrival here.
Yet those very tax breaks are why our infrastructure is failing. It is indeed a vicious cycle. So we spend our money in other cities and they benefit instead of us. Tell us how to keep our money here instead of elsewhere. There are some residents in the outlying areas around Chiloquin.
If all of those people spent just one day a year as a volunteer, that would be 24, hours in which something could be done to improve Find Chiloquin community. The only way to keep our money here is for EVERYONE to develop a sense of community and a willingness to participate, not just those very few who try to do it all.
