BUCKNER HOMESTEAD HERITAGE FOUNDATION
adopt tree2017

Looking for a stocking stuffer, a special gift to commemorate a memory or loved one, or to create a sense of caring and nurturing in a young person? Consider giving an adopted tree at the Buckner Orchard for 2018.
 
If the Buckner Orchard is going to continue as the treasure we know it to be, it must have caretakers now, as well as long into the future. What better way to ensure that future than by giving a child a gift of a tree?
 
The response of children who received trees is touching. They picked out their trees, wanting "to grow up" with a younger tree, pulling weeds, placing mouse guards, and running water to "their tree". They have become attached to "their" tree and now have a wonderful opportunity to care and help nurture a living thing for many years to come.
 
TREES ARE NOT JUST FOR CHILDREN!. Maybe you know someone who doesn't get to Stehekin often enough, who has a special memory of the Orchard, or you just want to support the work of the Foundation in caring for the Orchard. The adoption of trees also raises awareness of the Orchard and its care. 
 
Adopt-A-Tree is one way in which you can support the work of the Foundation in caring for the Buckner Orchard.  With your support much can be done to protect and conserve the heritage of this national treasure, and to continue its place as an important part of the Stehekin Community.
 
 Adopt a tree for yourself and be a part of the Buckner Orchard!
 
Adopt-A-Tree funds are used exclusively to support the care and maintenance of the Buckner Orchard and are tax deductible.
 
HOW TO ADOPT A TREE
 
Step 1. E-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to ensure a certificate arrives in time, providing the first and last name of the person the gift is being given to, as well as the address to which you would like it sent.  Be sure to include your e-mail address; this saves the Foundation both time and money in getting the receipt to you.
 
A personal message may be included on the certificate, such as, With love and fond memories, from Grandma Cinda and Uncle Jim.  You choose the one-line wording.
 
Step  2. Mail a check (@$25.00 per tree) to the Buckner Homestead Heritage Foundation at PO Box 184, Manson, WA 98831. Because some may be given as Christmas gifts, a certificate will be mailed immediately, trusting that the appropriate payment will be forthcoming.
 
Certificates can also be sent to you in PDF format via e-mail, ready to print from your computer, name of the recipient included.  Let us know your preference.
 
Renewals
 
This is also a great time to renew trees adopted during previous years. Please let us know if a new certificate is needed and follow the directions above.
 
Adopt-A-Tree is one of three means by which the Foundation raises funds to support the Orchard and Homestead. The other two are memberships and donations. Please help us today and give a gift of love and caring.

douglascountysheriff148C#17D-06816:  On 11/28/17 at 11:30 PM Douglas County Deputies received a call of a one car rollover accident on Fancher Heights Blvd. and Inglewood Dr. 

The first Deputy on the scene found a vehicle lying on its top in the yard of a residence.  All the occupants were out of the vehicle.  The driver said she and two other passengers were in the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights.  She said as she slowed down to make a turn “her foot slipped off the gas pedal and onto the accelerator.”  The vehicle hit a curb and rolled about three times according to the driver. 

There was alcohol and a legal amount of marijuana in the car, but the driver showed no signs of impairment.  She was transported to Confluence Hospital for minor injuries. 

One passenger, who fled before deputies arrived, returned to the scene and became belligerent and cursed the investigating Deputy.  There was no reason to detain him and he left the scene while delivering some parting obscenities.  The driver was cited for Speed Too Fast For Conditions.

C#17D-06799:  On 11/28/17 at 8:45 AM a Douglas County Deputy responded to a burglary complaint at McDougal and Sons located in the 13000 Blk. of US 2. 

The reporting party, who worked at McDougal and Sons, reported that one of her family members owns a pickup.  She had occasion to look in the vehicle and saw items she knew belonged to McDougal.  The Deputy followed up by contacting another employee at the business.  He learned that someone had broken into the receiving building during the night. 

Stolen were two computers, a portable radio charger, a small utility wagon, an acid monitor, and a web cam. 

Deputies located the vehicle and suspect at a residence in Peshastin.  The suspect was uncooperative.  The vehicle was impounded and a search warrant for the vehicle was obtained.  The stolen property was found inside.  Before deputies could arrest the suspect, Department of Corrections officers arrested him for failing to comply with conditions of his supervision. 

Deputies served probable cause statements at the Chelan County Jail on 11/29/17 charging him with Possession of Stolen Property 2nd Degree, a class C felony.  The suspect was identified as 24 year old Maverick L. Delzer of Peshastin.

douglascountysheriff148On 11/21/17 at approximately 12:22 PM, a Douglas County Deputy on routine patrol spotted a suspicious vehicle parked in the parking lot of the Rock Island BJ’s.  There were two males siting inside. 

As the Deputy approached the window, he saw one male holding drug paraphernalia while trying to open a small bag of a brown substance which appeared to be heroin.  The Deputy directed the two subjects out of the vehicle and the person holding the suspected drugs was placed under arrest.  A consensual search of the vehicle yielded two bags of  heroin and prescription medication for which the suspect did not have a prescription.  He was arrested without incident and booked at the Chelan County Jail for possession of a controlled substance.

The suspect was identified as 28 year old Narcisso T. Alvarez of Leavenworth

The Deputy, Nick English, used good initiative and professional observation skills to get these dangerous drugs off the street and keep the suspect from creating a dangerous situation by driving under the influence.

douglascountysheriff148On 10/17/17 at approximately 8:43 PM a Douglas County Deputy learned that a vehicle he had observed had an associated warrant out of LaSalle County, Illinois.  The warrant was for Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child. 

The Deputy followed the vehicle to a residence and was able to contact the driver and person named on the arrest warrant, 35 year old Victor Guerrero of East Wenatchee.  He was arrested without incident and booked at the Chelan County Jail.

Good work by an observant and tenacious Deputy.
