The face of the Deschutes County Commission changed Monday morning as the newest member is sworn into office.   La Pine resident Tony DeBone was elected in November to replace long time Commissioner Dennis Luke. DeBone says he is excited at his new challenge: “At this point, we know we are going to be managing budgets down. I will be part of the budget committee. I think I am going to be the only person changing on the budget committee. But this is where I will really be able to look at the pieces and parts of the County and put our opinions and priorities into the budget.” The County's Budget Committee meetings will start next Wednesday.
