Kevin Michael Hargreaves
Aug. 8, 1960 - Jan. 20, 2012
Private services were held for Kevin Michael Hargreaves, 51, of Redmond. He passed away on Friday, January 20, 2012, at his home in Redmond.
Kevin was born on August 8, 1960, in Boulder, Colo., to Ronald Wilson Hargreaves and Bambi (Force) Hargreaves.
In 1972, the family moved to Bend, where Kevin attended school. He graduated from Bend High School in 1978. In 1982, he married Deanne Horner. They divorced in 1998.
Kevin followed the career path of his father and grandfather, working as a carpenter and general contractor. Over the past 30 years, Kevin built many custom homes throughout Oregon. He was known for being a perfectionist. His former coworkers often joked about whether each other’s work was perfect enough to be ‘Kevinish’. He eventually built his own home in Redmond.
Kevin married Reid Phillips in 1999, and together they raised cattle and trail and roping horses. Kevin was just as comfortable in rodeos as he was on safari.
His true outdoor passion was hunting, having hunted all over the Northwest and in Canada. He and Reid also cherished their memories of a once-in-a-lifetime hunting adventure to Africa. For more than 30 years, Kevin fought against Crohn’s disease, refusing to allow it to compromise his career or hunting.
Kevin is survived by his wife, Reid; parents, Bambi Hargreaves and Ron and Doris Hargreaves; in-laws, Bob and June Lang; stepchildren, Ryan and Ashley Phillips; sister, Elise Hamner; brother-in-law, Eric Hamner; nephews, Brant and Teal Hamner; aunts, Patricia Force and Charlene Fields; uncles, Mike Ramsey and Larry Fields; cousins, Todd and Scott Fields and Beth and Steve Ramsey; along with numerous close friends.
Contributions in his memory may be made to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, 5705 Grant Creek, Missoula, MT 59808.

 Dinner theater brings 'mayhem’
The Children’s Theater Company has announced its first dinner theater production, “Mayhem in Mayville,” will show on Feb. 10, 11, 13, and 14 at 6 p.m.
Dinner will consist of roast pork loin (or vegetarian lasagna), rice pilaf, honey-glazed carrots, salad, drink and dessert.
When the lights come up on this two-act whodunit, the audience is aware that skullduggery has been at play – a pair of men’s legs are found sticking out from under a table at Connie’s Cup ’O Coffee Cafe. Mayhem quickly ensues and an investigation is under way. Everyone is suspect. Clues are found everywhere. The audience helps with the investigation and grand pandemonium follows as you try to make sense of all the clues and decide who the culprit is.
Tickets are $15 per person and available at www.childrenstheatercompany.net.

 Central Oregon fabric artist show

The exhibit, sponsored by Bank of the Cascades, includes 33 art quilts, showcasing 24 different artists. “These may not be quilts like your grandmother made, but many of them were designed and created by grandmothers,” said Ann Richardson, executive director of SOQS, in a news release.
About one-third of the quilts will be for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting both Arts Central and SOQS, both of which are 501(c)(3) nonprofits. For Arts Central, proceeds will benefit its scholarship fund for youth in need. SOQS is known for its annual outdoor quilt show – the largest of its kind in the world. While educating the public about quilt making, the organization continues to carry out the American tradition of quilters, helping to meet community needs.
The annual show is on July 14, 2012.
The quilts will be on display until Feb. 25 at Arts Central, 875 N.W. Brooks St. in Bend. Arts Central is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Three artists from Redmond are featured in the exhibit: Mary Stiewig, Charlene Kenny and Tammy MacArthur.

Elevation’s Executive Chef and Chef Instructor Thor Erickson explained in a news release, “Rooters and Tubers : menu will be cured and cooked fresh pork and a selection of roasted root vegetables which are in season right now. The students preparing the meal will come away with a newfound sense of where things come from and how best to use it.

Get free tax preparation
Partnership to End Poverty (The Partnership) will once again offer free tax preparation clinics from Feb. 1 to April 15 across Central Oregon. Certified volunteers will help those who need assistance to electronically file both federal and state tax returns for free and, as eligible, claim tax refunds that benefit local families and the local economy.
The Partnership’s goals are to help Central Oregonians receive as much of a return as they deserve and to keep it for themselves. This includes the savings from the free preparation, increasing the number of people filing and receiving the Earn Income Tax Credit if they qualify, and limiting the number of people applying for high cost refund loan products.
Appointments for free tax preparation clinics are being taken for Mondays and Wednesdays, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lynch Elementary in Redmond, through April 15.
Visit www.takecredit.org for more information. AARP TaxAide also offers free tax preparation throughout the region.  For information on those sites, please visit the TaxAide locator at http://www.aarp.org/applications/VMISLocator/searchTaxAideLocations.action.

Smart Redmond: Camera phone photography

BeFunkyPro has filters to turn snapshots into faded filmstrips or images from old camera
viewfinders, among many other effects
See the Jan. 18 issue of the Spokesman for a feature that demystifies smartphone photography; learn about the various 'apps' that can turn your cell phone camera into a instant gratification art machine!

Then, share your cell phone pics of Redmond with us! You can post them on our Facebook page or email them to news@redmondspokesman.com and we'll print them in next week's paper. Be sure and include the information about any software applications used to produce your photo.

SlowShutter helped me create a blurred motion effect from this snapshot of Redmond's ice
rink, while Instagram provided a filter to soften the edges in the image, like an old Polaroid.
