MEET Ass. Dr. Stephanie Beckon
Introducing Ass. Dr. Stephanie Beckon -- Titular Leader of the S.Y.M.
THE FIRM MEMBERS OF SH&T
Stephanie Beckon during a recent review of her work, in the Port Orford offices of Smith Hubbard & Tichenor
Born and reared in the wilds of southwestern Oregon, Stephanie Beckon is possessed of an insatiable curiosity. She developed an early fascination with the Classics and has continued an interest in languages, ancient texts, art, lexical analysis and philological taxonomic systems, as well as lichens. In formal education she followed two paths: veterinary science, natural philosophy and history. These intertwining threads, woven into her intellectual development [INSERT: -- or braided like a braid, and inextricably intertwingled -- ] eventually led her to graduate study at the University of California (Berkeley) and at Merton College at Oxford University [INSERT: after which she landed a teaching position at a small community college in Alsea (Oregon), where she was teaching when she was discovered by former P.Y.M. Puzzler interim editor Asaph P. Dromgoole.... [INSERT: who was enrolled at the same small community college.] Or, she discovered him -- one stormy night, sitting in a corner booth at the Malestorm Bar & Grill, there in Alsea, nursing a Heineken Lite. [INSERT: The meeting had been pre-arranged, in fact, during a class.] Their road-trips in her Porsche, and their [INSERT: enduring] dysfunctional relationship, forms part of the incredible history of the P.Y.M. Puzzler, during the year 2011, and into 2012 -- ] Order, rather than disorder, is her goal.
Following a period at the Scappoose Veterinary College for Health & Wellness, [INSERT: in Scappoose (Oregon)] she is at present, employed as Archivist-in-Training at the venerable firm of Smith, Hubbard & Tichenor, LLP, of Port Orford, (Oregon) Her penetrating intuition is sometimes overwhelmed by a troublesome rise of angermania, [INSERT: Gonopscyhanthropologia ] especially when propriety and injustice raise their ugly hydra-heads. Her maxim for life is simple: “The height of our wit, and depth of our judgment, are exactly proportioned to the length and breadth of our necessities.”
Beckon is, in a manner of speaking, really a late eighteenth century figure caught on the cusp of New Age sensibilities. [INSERT: She is probably the only woman along the southern Oregon coast, to use a bungie cord to tie-down her skirts, while she navigates her moped along the winding highways, and sinuous Forest Service Access Roads, on her way to serve summons on adverse parties, of clients of SH&T, LLP, or on assignment for S.Y.M.-Zonia (TM) .] She is avid in her love of the outdoors–especially wind-surfing on Flores lake, mountain biking into the remote regions of Oregon and Jefferson States, and meditating--but is also happy ruminating on the literae humaniores et historiae.
Beckon abhors obfuscation and dissimulation, especially when darkened over with fuliginous matter. Her embrace of history has led her into metaphysical regions filled with clouds of insight fostered by analysis of the human past. She embraces a quest for civic virtue, honesty, simplicity and freeing the world from the lumber of vulgar errors. She seeks to plumb the hidden resources of the human mind past and present.

Hello -- I'm the WEBMASTER for this site. It's my responsibility and my goal, to provide all S.Y.M.-Zonia's authorized PLAYERS!! and some non-subscribing visitors, with a memorable internet/online experience, while logged on to this domain. Once that's understood, I need to advise you, first, that I am NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONTENT appearing here. II post what they send me, and have only been hired to make sure the web-page runs good.
MORE ABOUT ME: My father, Howard Steinbach, was the son of a logger in Tillamook County, Oregon. When he was very young, my grandad (the logger: do the math) had a job logging a parcel way up the Wilson River, in a place -- a logging camp -- that came to be known as Idtiotville, Oregon -- perhaps because he was there. In the spring of 1927, there were heavy rains, and the spring freshets from all the runoff, flooded out the logging camp. My father -- who was just born at the time, and not my father at the time (do the math) -- was washed away from Idiotville and carried downstream in his basinet, and into the raging waters of the Wilson River, and borne pell-mell towards the Pacific Ocean -- and certain death. In time, his basinet floated all the way down river there to the Tillamook valley, and -- by the intervention of Providence -- it lodged in some long grass.
Here, accounts diverge. Some say that my father's basinette, swaying among the rushes, like near to be tugged out to sea at any moment, was noticed by a Jersey cow, who took pity on my father, took him back to the barn, and suckled him at one or more of her teats, like one of her own calves, until he was old enough to be formally schooled in Tillamook city. It is in this way that he came by the nickname "Stinky Steinbach" -- which as given to him by the other schoolchildren -- and this is the story as I heard it from my mother, who later abandoned my father.
Others -- such as my father -- disagree, and say that he was seen by some of the two-legged townsfolk, and hailed as a sort of sign. The Tillamook Heanlight-Herald newspaper ran a story that week entitled "Tillamook Moses Rescued from River!!!" -- you can look it up on line -- and showed a picture of my dad being marched through town to much fanfare. See at left. This account however, does not account for the nickname "Stinky Steinbach" and so is subject to doubt.
