Lakeside Water District Board Member Benny Henry watches carefully as the replica of the 1995 bond is burned. The District held a party for the residents to celebrate paying the bond off 19 years early. Water District meetings are public and are regularly held at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Water District Office, 1000 North Lake Road. See page three for more photos.

Coast Lake News has learned that, in a case before the Oregon Government Ethics Commission, former Lakeside Mayor Pro Tem Rod Schilling stipulated (agreed) that he violated the law when he ejected Coast Lake News reporters from an executive session stating ―You are not media.‖ The Commission fined him $50. Coast Lake News filed a complaint with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission following the ejection. In the complaint, Jessica L. Lloyd-Rogers, publisher and editor wrote ―It is clear that this violation of ORS 192.660(4) has more

to do with personal animus from the Mayor Pro Tem and City Councilors than with any law or police. We ask that the City of Lakeside be required to follow the law and allow representatives of Coast Lake News to attend all executive sessions. ― The case began on the evening of September 9, 2010 when Lloyd-Rogers and Jerry Schneider of Coast Lake News stayed on for an executive session following a regular Lakeside City council meeting. They were told to leave. (Continued on Page Three)

Elkton Seniors Serenaded by Swedish Fiddlers The Elkton senior citizen lunch crowd received a surprise treat last Wednesday when a pair of Swedish fiddlers showed up to play. Maud Granberg and Peter Hedberg were visiting from Vansbro, Sweden and presented a very enjoyable few minutes of entertainment. The couple came to visit Barbara and Jim Maxham of Elkton. Maud and Barbara first met when they were in high school and Bar-

bara‘s parents hosted Maud as an exchange student. The women have kept in touch through the years and visited each other several times. Maud and Peter have been active in country fiddling for years, and had the opportunity along with another three hundred fiddlers to play at the Swedish King‘s wedding. Maud has also been an active journalist in Sweden for several years.

When do we get our questions answered? There was a special budget meeting on June 27th. Was it ever correctly posted? What really were the subjects on the agenda supposed to be about? There were several people who heard it was supposed to be about city employee salaries, but at the meeting that subject was never discussed. How come some of the council members thought it was about the wages and then the city administrator said noooo it was going to be about the video taping of the city council meetings? How come the city administrator has so much power that she can dictate what any of the meetings are about? Why isn‘t the city council addressing, explaining or answering any of the questions? If it‘s supposed to be an open and transparent council, how come meetings are kept secret and changed at the very last minute?

My Turn … From the editor’s desk I‘ve been thinking a lot about gratitude these days. It‘s easy to be grateful for the visible blessings: marriage to a soulmate after many years of singlehood; a beautiful place to live; a healthy body and mind and pets who love unconditionally. It is more of a challenge to feel gratitude for those situations that take some time to see as blessings. I‘m sure you know the kind – where you find yourself digging through a pile of manure muttering to yourself, ―I‘m sure there‘s a pony in here somewhere.‖ As editor and publisher of the paper, I get to see both kinds of blessings, although sometimes it seems I spend an awful lot of time searching for ponies. Still, I‘m grateful to have had the opportunity to publish this paper for more than two years in the face of tremendous obstacles. And, if it ends, I‘ll still be grateful for the experiences that have made me a stronger person. I‘ve also learned to be more open about expressing gratitude and appreciation and not to take any support, whether from individuals or the Universe, for granted. Because of my upbringing, this is harder for me than for others. So, I take a tip from one of my favorite mystics, Meister Eckhart who has been quoted as saying ―If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice. A mentor of mine once told me that if we remembered to say ―please‖ and ―thank you‖ we would be able to make our way in the world under any circumstances. She liked to quote Luke 11:9 ―Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.‖ Time and circumstance have made it clear that we cannot continue to fund the newspaper out of pocket. We started the paper because we felt there was a need to be filled and that we had the skills to provide a service to the community. From the beginning we chose to fund it out of our monthly income while we worked to make the paper sustainable. That has taken longer than we antici-

resent the city zoning ordinances would threaten legal action or lawsuits against the city. Therefore I will be requesting that our city council unseat Herman Fanger and call for him to resign from the Lakeside planning commission. As many of us know the council last month decided to extend the Herman Fanger and Shirley Janssen terms on the commission until the end of the year. These two terms had already expired on Dec 31st 2010. At last month‘s meeting the council and mayor asked that James Edwards, chair of the commission along with two councilors, Sue Allen and Naomi Parker, get together and decide how the terms

should be set. This also was mentioned by the city attorney. It is my understanding and belief that this meeting between the two councilors took place with the commission chair and they came up with a good plan. I was very disappointed, shocked and outraged by the comments that I read in the World newspaper dated July 8th by Herman Fanger who was quoted as saying that the rewritten ordinance and the change of term lengths in the middle of a term would expose the city to liability. 'I'm seeing a lawsuit," Fanger said.. With this comment being said, I think the council should hold a special

When we proposed taking the paper to every other week in order to have more time to sell advertising, we were met with a storm of protest. We responded by returning to weekly, hastening this decision point. Let me be clear. We enjoy publishing the newspaper and feel that we have made a difference in our little corner of the world. We would like to continue with a print publication because we believe that we fill a need that is not filled by the other papers. We, of course, would like to see the paper continue. But, if the support from the community is not there in the form of advertising and subscriptions, then the message is clear. Continuing to publish under those circumstances would only be an exercise in ego and financial depletion. So, I‘m asking you our readers for your support and suggestions. Is the Coast Lake News important to you? Do we offer a service or fill a need that you wish to continue? What ideas do you have for making the paper profitable? Should we go to the much less expensive online only? Please feel free to send comments to coastlakenews.pub@gmail.com or phone me (Jessica) at 541-759 -3173. And, whatever the outcome is I am grateful to each and every one of you—supporters and challengers alike. Thank you to all.

...and mine From the field I find it interesting that Herman Fanger and Shirley Janssen feel they were reinstated to three year terms on the Lakeside planning commission when the terms they were appointed to fill expired on December 31, 2010. The City Council minutes and my notes from the December and January meetings do not bear that out. The only person officially recognized for reinstatement was Rudy Sheryck. He was selected to fill the vacancy left by Mattie Lane‘s resignation, returning to the commission after a stint on the Council. Judging by what Fanger and Janssen were quoted in The World newspaper as saying, they seem to feel that an appointment to fill a vacated position guarantees them an additional six years on the commission as commission members are allowed two consecutive three year terms. In my opinion that is quite a sense of entitlement. Automatic reinstatement without posting an opening precludes any other citizen from participating on the commission -- not a very democratic process. There is enough uproar over preventing citizen interaction and participation in city business. At the June City Council meeting it was proposed and voted on that the Fanger‘s and Janssen‘s terms be extended to the end of this year, and then posted, so others could apply. After discussion regarding staggered terms, the Council decided to create a committee (James Edwards, Planning Commission chair and councilors Sue Allen and Naomi

— d. me e ha i t r b me n to me! m Su h fu le ti uc litt m So So meeting and consider unseating Mr. Fanger. Fanger was appointed by the council after Clarke Anderson took over for then sitting councilor James Brown who passed away. Fanger is to represent the city‘s zoning ordinances, not threaten lawsuits because he doesn't agree with the council‘s decisions when it comes to the terms they set forth. Lastly, while the ordinance does state that a commissioner can serve 2 consecutive terms, this doesn't mean they are roll -over terms. The president of the United States can serve two consecutive terms but he still needs to run for office after his first

term to be re-elected. Mr. Fanger‘s term was up in Dec 2010 along with Ms. Janssen's. The council was generous in allowing them to continue since we were half way through the year when this topic was brought to light. This just goes to show that some people will go to certain lengths when they do not agree with a decision. I still recall hearing at a council meeting councilor Swift saying that this is how it has always been done. Well my last take on the issue is if your car is overheating, you add water to cool it until you can get it fixed, but if you do not fix the issue sooner or later it won‘t be fixable. Stacy Dunn

Parker) to study the issue and report to the Council at the meeting in July. Planning committee members serve at the pleasure of the Council, and by extension the citizens of Lakeside. It is not an inalienable right to serve for six years or more (if filling out another‘s term). Only the opportunity is a right. By their action and insistence that openings at the end of a term need not be posted, Janssen and Fanger are attempting to deprive other citizens of the same right to an opportunity they have enjoyed. This is yet another example of city personnel/ appointees infringing on or at least attempting to trample on the rights of the citizens of Lakeside. The only guarantee is the opportunity to apply and serve, not for two whole terms plus any partial they were chosen to fill, as not even one day is guaranteed.

Every citizen has the right and privilege to apply for the position. Not all have the interest or qualifications, but they still should not be denied the opportunity to serve their chosen community in any way they see fit. Denying them the opportunity all together is a slap in the face of the citizens of Lakeside. There are few guarantees in life; please let us retain the few we have. Keep in mind that volunteers serve the community, not themselves, and anytime they forget that, they are no longer serving Lakeside. I expect people to be adults and cheerfully serve their community and let others do the same. Volunteering should not be a power trip, but a service. Grow up and let others participate and enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done.

Schilling Acknowledges Coast Lake News is “a real newspaper” Continued from Page One Oregon Revised Statute 192.660(4) expressly provides that‖ representatives of the news media shall be allowed to attend all executive sessions except in two situations…‖ neither of which existed. The Attorney General‘s Public Records and Meetings Manual (PRMM) emphasizes the words ―shall be allowed.‖ When the language of the law was pointed out, Schilling, then Mayor Pro Tem Rod Schilling stated, ―You are not media.‖ According to the PRMM, ―The term ―representatives of the news media‖ is not defined. We have interpreted that term to include news-gathering representatives (i.e. reporters) of news media that ordinarily report activities of the body.‖ Emphasis is in the manual. When Attorney Frederick Carleton was being publicly interviewed for the position of Lakeside City Attorney, LloydRogers asked him for his position on public meetings and open records law. At the time, he held up the Attorney General‘s Manual and said that he believed strongly in both. However, that night, instead of explaining the law to Schilling and the Council, Carleton said both reporters had to leave as, ―They (Schilling and Councilors) do not consider you a newspaper.‖ When Lloyd-Rogers asking what Carleton was basing his decision on since the state law specifically included them, he refused to ―cite ordinances or statutes‖. After persistent questioning, Carleton told Lloyd-Rogers, ―You don‘t meet the state guidelines for a newspaper.‖ This was incorrect. Although, Carleton may have been relying on the

guidelines for a ‗paper of record‘, the law is clear that there is no requirement to be a paper of record in order to attend executive sessions. Following more questioning by Lloyd-Rogers, Carleton then said the ejection was based on a joint policy crafted by the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association, the League of Oregon Cities and the City of Lake Oswego. He ignored the fact that a) no such policy had been adopted by the City of Lakeside and b) that policy grew out of a conflict in which the city of Lake Oswego wanted to keep a blogger out of executive session. Nevertheless, ORS 192.660 (4) is clear. Representatives of the news media are specifically allowed to attend executive sessions. The confrontation was the culmination of acrimony and anger from City Hall beginning with the publication of a memo in August 2009 written by Councilor Chrysta Swift that called for a 5.8 percent raise for Charlie Hill. Just the week before, at a raucous city council meeting, Swift had denied that a raise was ever proposed and told some in the audience to sit down and shut up, calling them liars for raising the issue and telling them she didn‘t know where that figure had come from. Coast Lake News continued to cover actions and decisions made by the council which many members of the council deemed negative reporting. After Mayor Orville Nelson‘s resignation, Rod Schilling became Mayor Pro Tem. His response was to repeatedly and publicly state that Coast Lake News ―is not a

real newspaper.‖ He encouraged the City Administrator to refuse to release public records to the paper, leading in one case to the Coos County District Attorney ordering the City to release Council Meeting Minutes to the paper. By the time the order came down, several citizens had provided the paper with copies of the minutes in question. When Coast Lake News reported on the passing of an ordinance that clearly violated the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, Schilling publicly called LloydRogers a liar and accused the newspaper of misinformation. He denied the effect of the ordinance despite clear language to the contrary. After three weeks of reporting, City Attorney Carleton told a reporter at The World that the ordinance should be repealed because ― it‘s too vague and may infringe on people (sic) rights.‖ He also acknowledged the ordinance ―could have a Constitutional defect.‖ Several individuals, including business owners, reported that Schilling was asking folks not to support or advertise in the paper. Others reported that when Schilling ran for Mayor, one of his promises was to shut down the newspaper and send the publishers out of town by the end of the year (2010). Schilling lost the election to Mayor Ed Gowan by a significant margin.

Dunes ATV Routes Process Moves Forward State Seeks Public Comment The Siuslaw National Forest is looking for public input on a proposal to designate off-highway vehicle routes in part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area (NRA). Under the existing Management Plan for the Oregon Dunes NRA, about 6,000 acres of sand are open riding areas and close to17, 500 acres are reserved for non-motorized uses. The Plan also allocates 4,500 acres as open to motorized vehicles on designated routes only. It is this last category (called Management Area 10C) that is the subject of the Forest Service‘s proposal. ―Trails through forested portions of the Dunes provide critical access to open sand,‖ said Acting Central Coast and Oregon Dunes

National Recreation Area District Ranger Viva Worthington. ―These trails must also be carefully managed to ensure that riders do not affect sensitive plant and animal communities or infringe on areas dedicated to nonmotorized recreation.‖ The Forest Service proposes to add ten offhighway vehicle trails, totaling 3.96 miles, to the designated system of managed National Forest System trails. Nine of the ten trails, including Banshee Hill in the Umpqua Dunes Riding Area, already exist on the ground as historic, user-developed routes. One new trail of onehalf mile would be constructed to replace an existing National Forest System trail that would be

closed because it is impassable due to high water most of the year. As a part of this proposal, the Forest Service would restrict motor vehicles to designated routes in this portion of the NRA as directed by the Oregon Dunes NRA Management Plan. The proposal would also modify two management area boundaries to better align with changes in vegetation and topography in this ever-shifting landscape. Altogether, 287 acres now allocated as ―designated routes only‖ would be reallocated to ―open riding.‖ ―The Oregon Dunes are a special place,‖ said Worthington. ―As responsible land managers, we must ensure that people continue to have opportunities to enjoy these lands in a manner that protects the resources over the long term.‖ From 2009 to 2010, a public working group representing diverse interests reviewed existing management direction and visited

A Senior Moment By Gretchen Chapman The Family The family has always been the basic foundation for our strength, our support, our protection, security, oneness, identity, learning, preparation for life, our bonding. Family is the pillar of our country, for all human beings. Holidays, special events, have always been an opportunity for us to reach out to the extended family (cousins, aunts, uncles, grand and grander (great) grandparents). With family we share new births, marriages, celebrations of life, anniversaries, and birthdays. We catch up on the latest news over pots of food representing our favorite dishes. The potluck, the picnic, the barbecue, all bring forth the food and the communication (verbal, listening, eye contact, touch, hugs) is passed around as we sprawl out on lawn chairs and benches with laughter and smiles bursting forth. Years of history behind us, wonderful times! What is ‗the family‘ today? It‘s a hodgepodge of different faces from far off places,often unfamiliar, disconnected and everchanging. When someone asked me how many grandchildren I have, I can‘t honestly answer them. Life the revolving door, they come and go. How very confusing is this complex world we live in. Today‘s family systems have such a diversity of

new members. Brother and sisters that are half, step, adopted, foster. Exspouses, girlfriends, boyfriends and a multiplicity of grandparents expand the melting pot. The family tree has been replaced by a cord of wood from many trees. The study of genealogy is going out the door fast. There are too many variables. How can we find some semblance of order and return dignity to the image of family? How can we make this happen? How about first dropping the ―yours‖ and ―mine‖ and embrace ―ours‖? Let‘s take the barriers of protectiveness, ownership, jealousy, possessiveness, separation down, and open the windows of inclusion. The gentle breezes encircle the reborn family with love. Don‘t think this will be easy. You may have to develop a thick skin. Reach out toward those that welcome you and give little or no power to those who reject you. Be gracious, but quit trying to make them accept you. Most of all, like yourself and let that be enough. Today‘s family can be looked at as ‗special‘. Make opportunities to be around the nucleus of members you like best, rather than those you must accept. Here‘s to surrounding yourself with a family of friends! Even make your own family at the Senior Center. They‘re the best!

Coffee Brake of Lakeside Moves, Changes Name and Goes Organic/Free Trade

Good News with Pastor Bill Bates

The Apostle Peter‘s supernatural walk on water was made possible because of the supernatural walk of the Lord. So is the daily walk of the Child of God. His Lord bid Peter ―come‖ and Peter stepped out. So it is when we call upon Him and take that step of faith. We are enabled by His almighty power to live by

The Red Rock Java and Juice, formerly the Coffee Brake, shows off a new face to match the new location and new owner. Look for it next to the Bay Bridge Motel north of North Bend.

Ambrose Bierce Stories in Film at Coos Bay Library In the spirit of the 150 anniversary of America‘s Civil War, Coos Bay Public Library presents a dramatic film interpretation of three popular Ambrose Bierce stories on Thursday, July 21st at 7:00 p.m. in the library‘s Myrtlewood meeting room. Legendary writer Ambrose Bierce was known to be brilliant, cantankerous and romantic in all his life's passions, and was revered as one of the top storytellers of the late 19th Century. In 1890, he presented his recently published collection of Civil War Stories to novelist Gertrude Atherton and fledgling young publisher William Randolph Hearst during an infamous meeting in Sonol, California. This meeting sets the forum for the presentation of three of Bierce's most popular stories including "One Kind Of Officer", "Story Of A Conscience" and "An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge."

Are you male and retired? Join others like yourself for lunch every Thursday in Elkton at 1pm. This week meet at Tomaselli’s (Marty’s) right on Hwy 38. Bring a good story to share. Each man pays for his own lunch.

This acclaimed collection features epic battle sequences, deeply conflicted drama and the signature "surprise endings" that characterized most of the short stories by Ambrose Bierce. Everyone is welcome at this program sponsored by The Friends of Coos Bay Public Library. No admission is charged and refreshments will be served. Please call 2691101 for further information on this program.

Lakeside Seniors’ Hold Membership Drive During July The Lakeside Senior Center is holding a membership drive. For just $4 per year you can become a member. Anyone joining or renewing their membership in June and July will be entered into a drawing for lots of fun prizes.

American Life in Poetry: Column 309 BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE, 2004-2006 I love poems that celebrate families, and here‘s a fine one by Joyce Sutphen of Minnesota, a poet who has written dozens of poems I‘d like to publish in this column if there only were weeks enough for all of them.

I like it when they get together and talk in voices that sound like apple trees and grape vines, and some of them wear hats and go to Arizona in the winter, and they all like to play cards. They will always be the ones who say ―It is time to go now,‖ even as we linger at the door, or stand by the waiting cars, they remember someone—an uncle we never knew—and sigh, all of them together, like wind in the oak trees behind the farm where they grew up—a place I remember—especially the hen house and the soft clucking that filled the sunlit yard. American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation (www.poetryfoundation.org), publisher of Poetry magazine. It is also supported by the Department of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Poem copyright ©2010 by Joyce Sutphen from her most recent book of poetry, First Words, Red Dragonfly Press, 2010. Poem reprinted by permission of Joyce Sutphen and the publisher. Introduction copyright © 2009 by The Poetry Foundation. The introduction's author, Ted Kooser, served as United States Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 20042006.

Nine out of ten wildfires are preventable and caused by carelessness. But homeowners and others are not powerless against wildfires. In fact, homeowners who exercise common sense tactics, such as clearing brush and debris away from structures, play a vital role in slowing the spread of fire and protecting their property. ―One of our jobs at the Forest Service is to keep wildfires away from homes and communities and to reduce fire severity to manageable levels,‖ said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. ―But individual homeowners also play a key

Don‘t forget the coolant and oil too! They are small things that make a difference. Also there has been a very high rate of vehicles running off the road and rolled over here in Lakeside up on North Lake Road, both on and off the pavement. We have seen some good friends injured, so please be careful up on the hill. It takes a lot of little things to keep safe and nobody wants a breakdown or an accident. Let‘s prepare for the worst (our travel kits) and hope for the best. Oh, I almost forgot. Congratulations to Dennis Langley! Dennis won our monthly drawing for a free lube, oil filter service! YAHOO! See ya next week. Be safe and keep those wheels turning.

role—they have a responsibility to make their properties as safe as possible from fires.‖ The National Fire Protection Association‘s Firewise Communities program teaches homeowners, community leaders, planners, developers, firefighters and others about ways to protect people and property from wildfires. Firewise suggestions include: Remove trees, brush and grass from around your structures; Clear anything flammable from within 3 feet of the base of your structures Clean the roof and gutters of pine needles and other debris Remove tree limbs less than 10 feet from the ground around your structures Replace a shakeshingle roof with a nonflammable alternative Keep your lawn clean and green

Welcome to summer! Here in summer we offer all types of activities and weather to match. The question is, are our machines up to the challenge? I hope so. At least the cost of fuel is coming down a little. I saw $3.839 for diesel fuel in Florence the other day, so hopefully it will drop here a bit pretty soon, as I am a firm believer in shopping here in Lakeside. It is more important to shop locally than ever, and it is my hope that we and the other merchants are doing well for you. Now, let‘s talk about our cars. The hot weather is taking a toll on tires. We are seeing the seasonal increase in blowouts. This is usually caused by a tire that has been operated with air pressure that is too low for too long. Then boom! Tire spaghetti all over the road. If this happens, we hope it is just the tire and not you and your car. So let‘s make sure to get those tires checked often.
