 Tell me a story
Innovation Theatre Works  in Bend has announced that its open mic storytelling series, the SpeakEasy, will begin again at 6 p.m. Sept. 23  in the intimate Balcony CafĂ©.
The SpeakEasy was first launched in 2010, giving anyone with a voice and a story to tell a place to do just that. The SpeakEasy was the brainchild of  Innovation Theatre Works Artistic Director Brad Hills while serving as the Artistic Director of the Washington Storytellers Theatre in Washington, D.C. Predating other storytelling series such as The Moth or Portland’s Back Fence, the SpeakEasy remains a staple of Washington culture after ten-plus years of existence.
The SpeakEasy features a different theme each month and all are invited to join in with a story based on that month’s theme. This month’s theme is School Daze: Stories about going back to school. Whether it’s a story about going back to school after summer vacation or returning after years of being away or a story about going back on Monday after a particularly momentous weekend, we want to hear them. Stories will be limited to seven minutes and storytellers may come prepared with a memorized story, read from a script or speak extemporaneously from memory. They can be your own personal experiences or those of another writer, published or not.
Storytellers may preregister  to reserve a spot or sign in at the door. Please call the theater at 541-504-6721 or e-mail brad@innovationtw.org if you would like to reserve your spot. Storytellers will be taken in the order reserved. The cost to attend is $5.
Innovation Theatre Works is located at 1155 S.W. Division St., in the Scandia Square. There is plenty of free parking available.

Obituaries

Gail Franson
1940-2012
The world has lost one of its greatest mothers to grace this earth on Tuesday  September 11, 2012.
Gail B. Franson passed away suddenly in Redmond, OR. She was born in Coeur d’Alene, ID in 1940. Gail moved to Anchorage in 1971 with her husband Bill, raising her three children before purchasing a bowling center and moving to Redmond with her family. Gail was married for 46 years before losing her husband in 2008. She was also preceded in death by her mother, Ruby Gladding and father, Clarence Gladding.
Gail was a full time working mother, helping  to raise more than just her children, the entire neighborhood called her MOM. Gail enjoyed gardening, landscaping and  decorating her yard. She enjoy spending time with her many grandchildren.
She is survived by her three children, Denise  Shaver (Mike), sons, Ron (Dana) and Deric;  two sisters, Babe Crothers and Patty Bush;  seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Robert Whittier
Nov. 1, 1948-Aug. 17, 2012
Rob died at home in Ashburn, Virginia, on August 17, 2012, surrounded by his  family who had been caring for him  through an extended illness.
Rob was born on November 1, 1948, in  Plainfield, New Jersey, to Robert Douglas  and Medora Ellen (Bell) Whittier. He was  a fourth-generation woodworker, dating  back to his great-grandfather C.B. Whittier, grandfather E.L. Whittier, his father Bob, and uncle Gordon, who all spent their  lives involved in the lumber industry.
Rob began working at Whittier Moulding Company in Redmond,  Oregon, while still in his teens. He held nearly every position  in the mill, ranging from stacking green lumber, to sharpening  moulding knives to managing production. This hands-on  experience in all aspects of the business made him a valuable  asset to the woodworking industry. Rob’s 45-year career,  including positions in Oregon, California and Texas, came full circle as he spent the past 18 years working for Whittier Wood  Products in Eugene, Ore.
Rob did a tour of duty in Vietnam in 1969-70 with the Army Signal  Corps. He served in the Army for three years, the last of which he  spent in Fort Benning, Georgia. After being honorably discharged,  Rob returned to Oregon State University, where he received a B.S. in business administration. He was a devout Christian and a  member of the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys.
Rob developed a love of horses early in life, cultivated by the many  camping trips his family made into the Three Sisters Wilderness  on horseback, and his participation as a bareback bronc rider  in local rodeos. Rob never lost his love of the outdoors, and his children have endless memories of hunting, fishing and roughing  it in remote areas of the Oregon mountains and deserts. A favorite  escape for him was the family-owned Indian Creek Ranch, where  he served family and friends his celebrated sourdough pancakes and his legendary stews, roasts, and chilies, which he cooked in a  Dutch oven underground.
Rob is survived by his two children, Nancy Whittier (Douglas)  Pabotoy and Robert Todd Whittier (Tracy Drynan), and their  mother, Bonnie Whittier; his two sisters, Mary Ann (Terry)  Schliep and Peggy (Joel) Mitchell; nine nieces and nephews, two  aunts, and eight cousins.

He married Diana Johnson on April 2, 1966, in Corvallis, Ore.
With the family background in ranching, in 1967 he took a job running a feed lot in Hermiston, Ore.

Over the next few years, he worked with Boston Ranch Co. in Prineville, Hershey Cattle Co., and then the Redmond Co-op. The family operated B&D Concrete and later began Central Oregon Monument Works.
Through the years, he was an avid and successful team roper with many wins and championships. He taught many cowboys and cowgirls how to rope and be successful.
His door and arena were always open to those in need.
In the later years, he was chute boss at many NW rodeos. He was a mentor to rodeo judges and served as a director in several rodeo associations. Bud was a member of the Northwest Pro Rodeo Assn. and the Pro Rodeo Cowboy's Assn., to name just a couple.
When it came to family, many hunting trips and general outdoor excursions were enjoyed by all. The family includes his beloved wife of 46 years, Diana and their son, Bob, as well as a host of friends.
A remembrance of his life will be held in conjunction with the NW Pro Rodeo Finals at the Crook County Fair Grounds. It will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, 2012, at 10 a.m., in the Carey Foster Hall.
