Arch Cape fires now controlled

Hatching an outcry

Local fishing community is alarmed over state conservation strategy

The larger one burned 273 acres By Joe Wrabek

Officials say it will be another day or so before it’s known precisely what caused last week’s coastal wildfires. After four days of intense work, crews had controlled two fires that had been burning near the Arch Cape tunnel, said state officials. “We’re down to a handful of smokes,” said Oregon Department of Forestry spokesperson Ashley Lertora. “We made great progress.” Although the two fires are not yet officially contained — that announcement isn’t expected until later this week – they’re not expected to spread, the Headlight Herald was told. The fires near the southern border of Clatsop County have been turned over to the landowners to deal with, Lertora said. That would be Stimson Lumber for the Shingle fire, and Weyerhauser Co. for the Falcon Cove fire. No public land was burned. “The landowners will continue to have personnel and equipment there,” said Lertora. Both fires reportedly began in the remains of slash burns from logging operations conducted last fall. Extreme dry weather and high winds may have re-kindled the slash piles, although that has yet to be confirmed. The Shingle fire was reported first, the morning of Jan. 23. It was located 2 miles east of the Arch Cape tunnel on U.S. Highway 101. The Oregon Department of Forestry called in assistance after the Shingle fire began “spotting” toward the highway. Rural fire departments in Clatsop County and Nehalem, plus hand crews from the South Fork Inmate Camp in Tillamook County, ended up working on the fire along See FIRE, Page A3

More than 100 fishing enthusiasts attended an informational meeting last week in Tillamook, primarily to protest a draft conservation and management plan proposed by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The state’s plan addresses six native coastal salmon and trout species, and outlines actions designed to sustain the species and to improve fishing overall. The executive summary can be found on the Headlight Herald’s website,

Hurlimans have a winner Local couple’s racehorse nets $25,000 derby win By Sayde Moser George and Rose Hurliman sit at the dining room table in their home at the end of Fawcett Creek Road in Tillamook. From their big bay windows, they can see miles of hill-covered trees and serene valleys. Herds of elk may meander from the creek to the grassy hills. The Hurlimans have lived in the house for more than three decades. For longer than that, they’ve been racing horses. Now, after winning the $25,000 Oregon Derby in Portland on Jan. 17, the Hurlimans believe they just may be the proud owners of a real champion. “It’s taken us 40 years to have a 3-year-old that looks outstanding,” said Rose with a chuckle. Maddie’s Gold, as they call him, finished the mile-long derby at Portland Meadows in 1 minute and 41.13 seconds. As a four-time winner, he bumped his winnings to more than $60,000. The odds generally aren’t favorable when it comes to having a champion horse, said George. “Ninety percent of horses won’t produce,” he said. And, “Once you win, it only gets tougher.” Last November, their Oregonbred horse captured the $15,000 Bill Wineberg Stakes. “That’s when we thought we might have something,” recalled George.

Maddie’s Gold races to victory in the Oregon Derby on Jan. 17. The 3-year-old thoroughbred belongs to Rose and George Hurliman of TIllamook, lower left, who have owned racehorses for the last 40 years.

He had won the $30,000 Osiris Stakes the previous August. The Hurlimans point to their champion’s breeding. Maddie’s Gold’s father, Harbor the Gold, is the leading sire in the Northwest, they said. His mother, Moonlit Maddie, is a champion turf runner, meaning she runs on grass courses. Moonlit Mad-

die has won a variety of races in Arizona, at Turf Paradise and Yavapai Downs. After they give him a rest, said the Hurlimans, they may see how Maddie’s Gold does on turf tracks. “Turf horses travel higher,” said George – they lift their hoofs higher off the ground. “My gut tells me he’s going to run turf just like his mother.” The couple has been raising the horse since he was a foal, with trainer Rolland Fergason. Maddie’s Gold is one of several racehorses they own, with three more foals on the way. The Hurlimans estimate they’ve owned more than 50 racehorses over the years. “Usually, they don’t make it to be

6 or 7 years old,” said George. “But if you pace them right, you can race them up until they’re 12.” Neither sees Maddie’s Gold giving up anytime soon. Which is good; the Hurlimans aren’t ready to give it up, either. Then again, “Maybe we’ll back down on the breeding,” Rose suggested. Her husband will be 80 years old by the time the newest foals are ready for the track, in two or three years. “It’s what’s keeping him young,” she admitted. What’s more, “It’s quite an honor to have a winning horse. It’s pretty good for little, ol’ Tillamook.”

3 take aim at county commissioner job By Joe Wrabek

At the end of January, three candidates had filed for the Tillamook County Commissioner Position 3 election: incumbent Tim Josi of Bay City, Bill Spidal of Nehalem, and David Yamamoto of Pacific City. Candidates have until Mar. 11 to file, according to the county clerk’s office. Ballots will be mailed out May 2. Election Day – the date by which all ballots must be returned – is May 20. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes, a run-off election will be held in November, with the top two votegetters on the ballot. The candidate who receives a majority of the votes cast, either in the May election or the runoff election in November, will take office as one of Tillamook County’s three commissioners in January 2015. The Headlight Herald talked with each of the candidates who had filed. Future candidates will have that same opportunity. BILL SPIDAL William “Bill” Spidal is no stranger to local elections. He ran for county commissioner in 2002 and 2008, and for county sheriff in 2012.

Tim Josi

Bill Spidal

David Yamamoto

A former Portland police officer, he left the force following an auto accident in 1985 and founded Westco Investments, an international hedge fund he still owns. He moved to the Nehalem area in 1998. The county’s issues are the same as when he ran for sheriff, Spidal said. Domestic violence tops the list – “We have a crisis in Tillamook County,” he said. “I don’t know why we’re not doing more to address the issue.” Second is tsunami sirens: “We’re the only county on the West Coast with no tsunami sirens.” Clatsop and Lincoln counties sank money into upgrading sirens, Spidal said, “[but] we decommissioned them.” Spidal wants public safety to be a bigger priority in the county’s budget. “We don’t have 24/7 sheriff’s patrols,” he noted.

And he’d like to put a stop to the repeated elections involving bond issues, which he called “a neverending battle. The public doesn’t have the money” for repeated elections, said Spidal. If voters reject a bond issue, it shouldn’t reappear on the ballot for another four years. Spidal said he brings to the county commissioner job “a strong empathy for the public” as well as financial expertise. “Money management is what I do,” he emphasized. “There are a lot of areas where we can reduce expenses.” Often, he contended, the county commissioners don’t seem focused on those issues that concern local people. “It’s a matter of getting out there,” he said. “You have to go to [the public]” rather than expecting residents to come to you. “If people vote for my opponent, that’s democracy,” said Spidal. “But I won’t stop talking.” TIM JOSI Tim Josi was born in Tillamook County and has lived in Bay City for 35 years. A former state legislator, he’s been a Tillamook County commissioner for the past 16 years. “I don’t have a desire to return to the Legislature,” See ELECTION, Page A3

Rotary International: working for world peace

When asked about all the things that The Rotary Club of Tillamook does, this is what member Brett Hurliman said: Let’s see, When I joined this club we were selling rubber ducks to raise money to build the Children’s Museum that sits next to the zoo, at the old OMSI site.  My daughters have loved our visits there.    The other major project was to get the restrooms up the Wilson.  At that time, there

simply were no other places to stop, other than the side of the road.  We were the first club in the district to become 100 percent Paul Harris Fellows. We are still one of the few.   I cannot tell you how many different exchange students I have sat down and shared a meal with. Each of them

taught me something, whether they intended to or not.  I have run flags on every imaginable holiday, sometimes I don’t even know what we are celebrating, but it still gives me goosebumps to look down the street and see it lined with Old Glory. It makes me sad we have fewer and fewer flags each year.   The program for the Relay for Life got me out walking the track for an entire night. That is where I met my wife.   The program on SMART readers ended with me reading with students for years, not to mention joining the leadership council.   I have been President, Foundation, and Program Chairs.  I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy each one, but I really did.   As a club we have supported Charity Drive with outrageous prices on cakes, we have supported the kids with books, dictionaries, and atlases, and we have supported the food bank with a singing fish. 

• We give money to scholarships.  • We give money to the speech team.  • We give money to the hearing impaired.  • At one point or another, we have given money to just about anyone who has asked.   • We have gone as a group to a Blazer game, and stood in awe as (Officer) Nick (Troxel) had to deal with a tweeker.   I have seen us plan a gold raffle for months, and I have seen us simply pass the hat and come up with enough money to hire a nurse for Outdoor School.   Sitting around that table, I have seen things I never expected to see or hear, but don’t worry Brad, your secrets are safe with me.   I have seen Judy get so riled up with people picking on her that her only recourse was to be Sergeant at Arms in back to back years.  Of course, it never helped

her. We simply pay the fine and move on. I don’t know if any of that helps you or not.  All I know is I still look forward to coming to this club week after week, and I still

think the world of everyone of these fools that come back with me. Interested in joining Rotary? Email for more information.

Election Continued from Page A1

The Arch Cape fires burned more than 300 acres last week, likely the result of a dry, windy January.

Fire Continued from Page A1 with ODF and timber company personnel. By the next day, Jan. 24, the Shingle fire had burned a total of 31 acres. The Falcon Cove fire south of the Arch Cape tunnel wasn’t reported until about 10 p.m. Thursday night. By then, it had

grown to between 50 and 80 acres in size, ODF said. That fire ended up burning 273 acres. Steep terrain and east winds gusting to 50 mph made fighting the fires challenging, Lertora said. Although there were no evacuations, a fire engine from Cannon Beach’s rural fire district was stationed in Arch Cape as a precaution. Nehalem Fire and Rescue



had two firefighters and a tender (which carries water) at the Shingle fire, and a fire engine and 22 firefighters on the Falcon Cove fire, said Fire Chief Perry Sherbaugh. Nehalem’s crew worked through the night of Jan. 23, but wasn’t needed the following night, he said. Coastal forest fires in the winter are an anomaly. “Nobody expected it to be this warm and dry in January,” Lertora said. “We

are expecting rain very soon, but it’s very hard to tell when.” The National Weather Service has advised that the east winds responsible for fanning the fires are expected to continue until mid-week. And although rain is predicted, it may not be much, said meteorologist Gordon McCraw, who heads emergency management for Tillamook County. “Tell everybody to be careful,” said McCraw.

Transportation improvements for 2014 include bridge repairs and slide management By Joe Wrabek

The Oregon Department of Transportation will be working this summer on two slide-prone sections of U.S. Highway 101, and on three bridges on the Little Nestucca River Highway (Oregon Highway 130). ODOT’s northwest district manager, Larry McKinley, recently told the Tillamook County commissioners that the three single-lane bridges on Highway 130 “have reached their life expectancy.” ODOT will sandblast and “re-coat” the bridges, said McKinley. have to contain the bridges when 36 we“We do the work,” he added, to keep dust and H40279 paint out of the water. To do that, each of the


Page A3

bridges will be closed for about a month. McKinley said the repairs are being contracted out. “We’ll be in contact with people who live in the area,” he said, “and we’ll also coordinate with emergency services.” Only one bridge will be closed at a time, he said. The Little Nestucca River Highway project is expected to begin in May and end in September. On Highway 101, “We have two rockscreening projects,” McKinley told the county commissioners: • On Neahkahnie Mountain north of Manzanita, the anchors in the cliff face that hold a 30-year-old screen have failed, McKinley said, and must be replaced. That work will happen this spring.

Much of the work will involve placing new anchors in the cliff face; “the actual hanging of the screen doesn’t take long,” said McKinley. “We will have to close the [highway] when we hang the screen,” he said. That will take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. “There will be public notice,” he said. ODOT has scheduled a Feb. 10 “public outreach” meeting at the Pine Grove building in Manzanita, McKinley told the commissioners. “We’re working with emergency services and the transportation district,” he said. Truck traffic isn’t considered a problem; See REPAIRS, Page A7

Josi told the Headlight Herald. “I have discovered I am much more effective as a county commissioner.” He said experience tops his list of strengths, including working with leaders at the local, state and national levels. “I am well respected and have a record of accomplishments,” he said. As for why he’s seeking re-election, Josi said he’s “in a key position to help resolve significant issues facing our natural resource industries.” He chairs the State Forest Trust Counties and is a member of the National Association of Counties’ executive committee, representing 15 western states. “I feel as though I have spent my political career getting myself to a position where I can make a real difference,” Josi said. He’s been involved in passage of the federal farm bill and with a new management plan for the national forests, working with U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, and U.S. Representatives Kurt Schrader, Peter Defazio and Greg Walden. “We have several issues of high importance facing the county,” Josi said. In addition to fishing issues (he’s a member of the Oregon Coastal Zone Management Association), Josi said he’s working on forest issues with the state (as chair of the Forest Trust Counties), and the Bureau of Land Management (as a board member of the Association of O&C Counties). “As a board member of the Association of Oregon Counties, I focus on public land issues, including the current marbeled murrelet litigation,” he said. Josi has written articles about the litigation “and the impact facing our forests if we lose.” Should he lose the election, “It would be a shame to squander the experience and influence I have garnered through hard work over a number of years.” DAVID YAMAMOTO Pacific City resident David Yamamoto, originally from

Selma, Calif., said he spent 20 years in the lumber industry. Since 1996, he has been a long-term-care insurance specialist for Genworth Financial. He currently serves on the Northwest Area Commission on Transportation, the Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee, and is a member of the Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce. He chairs the Pacific City-Woods Citizen Advisory Committee and is vicechair of the Tillamook County Futures Council. Yamamoto said he’d bring to the job of commissioner a willingness to listen to all sides of an issue and the ability to offer a fresh perspective. “I feel out-of-the-box thinking is one of my strengths,” he said. His number-one priority is jobs. Both Congressman Schrader and Senator Wyden have separate bills to deal with the federal Oregon and California Railroad timberlands. “There has to be some common ground,” Yamamoto said. “We can’t rape forests today. “But if we don’t log, they’ll burn,” he added. The fishing industry has problems, too. “They’re bleeding from a thousand little cuts,” he said. The expansion of local businesses such as Near Space Corporation in Tillamook, and of the tourism industry, is good, said Yamamoto, but “we need to make sure we don’t lose industries we’ve depended on.” His number-two priority is education. The academic performance of students in local schools had been going up, he said, but “the past two years it’s been flat or going down. There’s only so much teachers can do in the classroom. We need to work with the community a lot.” An overall vision for the county is essential, said Yamamoto, and he credits the Futures Council – a “think tank for the county commissioners” – with helping to develop that vision. Yamamoto’s been a Futures Council member since 2009. “I feel I have the ability to bring fresh eyes to some old problems,” he said. “That’s not to say I have the answer to everything, but I think I’ve got the experience with community involvement over the years to help.”

READER’S OPEN FORUM We need emergency vet care in Tillamook County I am writing because I am very disappointed in the emergency veterinary care available in Tillamook, Cloverdale and Lincoln City. This past Sunday evening our beloved family dog was having difficulty breathing (I don’t know if it was an illness or she had something stuck in her throat). I called all over trying to find emergency veterinary services. The veterinarians that had answering services either did not answer or they answered and said they do not have emergency services available. Then finally I got an an-

swering service fro mPioneer Veterinary Clinic. They took my name and number and had the doctor on call return my call. The doctor asked me who my regular veterinarian was and I told him it was Cloverdale, but they had no emergency service and told me to call Pioneer. Then this dedicated doctor of veterinary medicine told me he had no one available to help me and I would have to drive to Beaverton to get help. I attempt to drive the two hours away to get help for my precious companion, but the whole way she was gasping for air as I tried to calm her and sooth her pain. After about an hour and a half into the trip she took her

last breath. I do not know if she could have been saved if there would have been a veterinarian available locally or not, but at least she would not have had to spend the last hour and a half in pain and gasping for air. If she could not have been saved they could have at least ended her suffering. After all a doctor of veterinary medicine should be dedicated to saving the lives of animals 24/7, not Monday through Friday from 8-5 and limited hours on Saturday. If you dedicate your life to saving animals you should do just that. Thank you. I hope this will save a life. Robin Reddish Beaver

The dream comes true By Kathleen Sulivan Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity On Dec. 21 volunteers, friends, Habitat donors and supporters gathered together to celebrate with Kevin Bond, Brandi Pierson and their children Americas, 8, Melly, 7 and Eros the completion of their new home located on 8th Place in Bay City. A Christmas miracle stood as a testimony of what is possible when the “Hearts and Hammers” of contractors and volunteers get together with a blue print, donors, supporters, businesses who donate materials and labor and they catch the dream to make a difference together. Tears of joy flowed down Brandi’s face as she thanked everyone for making a dream come true for them. “We never imagined in a million years this would happen to us, we are so blessed and want to thank everyone who helped make it happen.” The family Christmas tree had been set up earlier and the Christmas presents were waiting for the children in their new home. It was a morning of celebration and one that will be remembered in their lives forever. Food to fill the pantry along with baking supplies, cleaning supplies and other household necessities were brought by those attending the dedication and added to the family Christmas presents. Chris Spence, General Contractor volunteered to lead the project. Construction began in June 2013 and the house was dedicated in December. Chris is a wonderful supporter of Habitat and without him the home would not have been built this year. Despite his own health issues he kept the pace and made sure that the family had their home complete before Christmas. The dedication and commitment to the project

and having things done right is reflected throughout the home and is a tribute to the caring and talents of the contractors that lead our projects.

Some starting points for ‘Rails and Trails’ By Joe Wrabek Former planner With all the hoopla about the “Rails and Trails” project going on, it’s hard to drive Highway 101 and not notice the railroad tracks. As a former planner, I keep calculating where I’d build that trail next to the tracks, and on what side, and what portions would be easy, and which would involve some navigation of some sort of nightmare circle of Hell populated by wetland and estuary regulators. (Old planners, you see, never die. They just get a zone change.) A lot of that trail would really be fairly easy to build, all the way from Wheeler to Tillamook – there’s plenty of right-of-way, and it’s flat and (compared to Highway 101) pretty straight. (Railroads needed to be flat and straight.) There’s a pretty good set of railroad tracks that run all the way out to the blimp base, too, four miles south of Tillamook; those were built by the Navy in World War II. Without too much repair, you could run trains out there again – and we have said the blimp base is Tillamook County’s numbertwo tourist attraction (after the cheese factory). Getting there by train might attract even more people. And it’d be easy to build the trail next to the tracks, too. But why stop there? There’s a lot of Tillamook County that lies south of the blimp base, though it’s not that easy to get to – and there are a lot of tourist attractions down there, too, though those are often not easy to get to, either. There are also tourist facilities down there – hotels, motels, bed-andbreakfasts, and vacation rentals – that will be paying rather a lot of the county’s

new Transient Lodging Tax, and are concerned they won’t see a lot of benefit out of it. One complaint I heard voiced by some proprietors is Pacific City can’t handle many more tourists without upgrading or building new infrastructure; the roads aren’t that good (Highway 101 is pretty wretched), and the place gets pretty full in mid-summer; not many places to park. Some folks have been promoting the idea of flying into Pacific City; the little state airport is right in the middle of town, and you really can walk almost everywhere from where you parked your plane. What about extending the railroad to Pacific City? Probably no one’s built any railroads in a long time, at least in this part of the U.S., but it doesn’t seem to be a whopping challenge; remember, most of the rail system in this country was designed and built by rank amateurs, and most of it is still in use, and working just fine. One advantage you’d have in building a railroad to Pacific City is the terrain is pretty flat – unlike a lot of the country the train runs through in North County – and you could go pretty straight; it’s not necessary to follow every bend in the Nestucca River like Highway 101 did. And one would want to build the Salmonberry Trail next to the tracks, too. Yes, the hikers, bikers, and horseback riders will use it; Highway 101 and the other roads are mostly narrow, have little or no shoulder, and are dangerous for anybody not in a vehicle (and often dangerous for people in vehicles, too). Just like up north, it’d be good to get the non-motorSee TRAILS, Page A5

Recovery program eyes Tillamook By Sayde Moser

When Alan Evans of Seaside created what would become the Helping Hands Reentry Program a decade ago, he was lying on the floor of a house with friend Mike Easter. The recovering drug addicts then and there decided to start a program that could help people in similar situations restore their lives. At the time, the program was called Thugs Off Drugs. It since has evolved into a multi-house effort for men and women facing a multitude of problems re-entering society. Helping Hands has come to span Clatsop, Lincoln and Yamhill counties – but not Tillamook County. Until now. Evans said he is working to operate a recovery house here. “People want to get out of unsafe situations, but they’re living on the street or with friends because that’s all there is,” Evans said. “That number is bigger than you can ever imagine in Tillamook County, because it’s bigger everywhere.” He said those without a safe living environment may resort to committing crimes to survive, or as a way to end up back in jail where they are warm, fed and dry. “We’ll provide a safe place [in Tillamook County] to live, to get a job, to get back on your feet and to get back in your community,” Evans said. Providing that first step can help lower crime rates here, he added. The planning stage is in its infancy, Evans cautioned. He said he will raise the money to run a recovery house for one year before even opening its doors. “We’ve done it backwards before,” said Evans. “This time, we’re going to make sure the finances are straight

and that the community is willing to support us.” In fact, he said, community support is key to the program’s success. “Everybody in [Clatsop County] refers to us because they know what we do, how we do it and why. That’s what we want to tackle in Tillamook County before we even open the doors.” He said he hopes to open a homeless shelter here, too, so those who need an immediate place to stay have a place to turn to. Currently, there’s little in the way of an emergency or homeless shelter in Tillamook County. (A warming center, which is run through CARE, is the closest thing to a shelter in Tillamook County and is only open on nights of severe weather alerts.) In Clatsop County, Evans said, he uses his homeless shelter as a way to assess whether or not a person might be interested in moving into one of the recovery houses. He said the majority of clean-and-sober houses have a 37 percent success rate, because they focus on just one issue – drug and alcohol addiction. “We found if we put a plan together based around every obstacle a person faces, then we have a much higher success rate,” he said – up to 69 percent. “That makes us a little different than anybody else you’ve ever seen.” “What Alan is doing is simply remarkable,” reported state Sen. Betsy Johnson, who serves on his advisory board in Clatsop County. “He is able to relate to the communities he serves by virtue of having walked a mile in their shoes.” Evans said he’s planning a handful of town hall meetings in Tillamook on a date yet to be determined to introduce his program to the community and form a committee to help with its implementation.

Chocolate, wine, and art combine to celebrate art education and 25 years of service “Your Heart’s Desire: A Celebration of Chocolate, Wine, and Art” will take place again in February to benefit Community Arts Project’s (CAP’s) Art Literacy Program in Tillamook County schools. It will be held Saturday, February 8, 2014, at the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City. This year is Community Arts Project’s 25th anniversary as a non-profit organization serving Tillamook County, and the event will feature some special celebration activities. Beginning at 12 noon, a special art exhibit and sale will be held highlighting artwork created especially for this event by local professional artists. Pieces will be on three different sized birch panels, with the addition of threedimensional pieces this year (sculpture, pottery, glass, etc.). Art will depict artists’ reflection on the theme, “Change” and pieces will sell for $60, $100, and $120 – all proceeds supporting the Art Literacy Program. It’s an opportunity to add to your collection at very reasonable prices while supporting a great cause! The artwork will be for sale from 12 noon until 5 p.m., with no admission charge. New this year will be artists demonstrating their work during the afternoon hours (1 – 3 p.m.). The art sale will continue from 6:30 – 10 p.m. at the chocolate and wine party, for which tickets are required. Complimentary wine, beer, sparkling cider, appetizers, and desserts will be served during the evening event, which will also include a raffle, silent auction, student art, and live music. Currently, Art Literacy Programs are being presented at

Nestucca Valley Elementary School in Cloverdale, Garibaldi Grade School, and Cedar Creek Child Care Center in Hebo. Each month an ageappropriate 90-minute art education session is conducted in each classroom focusing on a famous artist or art movement. The lesson includes art history, technique, and aesthetic analysis, as well as an opportunity for each student to create their own artwork in the style of the artist or art movement presented. More than 450 students are reached every month. The program is privately funded and presented by CAP, which also presents the children’s summer art program “Slug Soup.” Funding for CAP programs relies on special events, grants, and the generous donations of local individuals and businesses. CAP is especially grateful at this time to the many local businesses that are sponsoring the event, including Pelican Pub and Brewery, Cape Kiwanda RV Resort, Seufert Winery, Twist Wine Co., Tillamook Headlight-Herald, KTIL Family of Radio Stations, Pacific City Sun, American Easel, LLC, Rosenberg Builders Supply, Kiawanda Community Center, Shorepine Vacation Rentals, Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub, Tillamook Vision Center, TLC Federal Credit Union, and Village Merchants. The public is invited and welcome to join in this celebration. Tickets to the evening event are $25 advance, $30 at the door.

Trails Continued from Page A4 ized folks off the highway, and we will see more of them around if we do. But the trail, if it’s handled right, can also help build the railroad line. There are pools of grant money dedicated to trails, and some of it would help do everything from acquisition of right-of-way to actual building of the roadbed. And you might be able to build them both at the same time. As far as local money goes, there is that countywide Transient Lodging Tax, once it starts being collected. That tax doesn’t have to be used exclusively to promote tourism, remember; it can also be used to build “tourist facilities.” One use that’s already been proposed for some of that money is building part of the Salmonberry “Rails and Trails” project in North County. Could we use some of it to build a trail – and rail – in South County? Is a railroad a “tourist facility?” Seems like this one would be. This of course leaves open the question of who’d run such a railroad, and what its rolling stock might be like.

Habitat Continued from Page A4 year plus donors and grants, donated materials and labor provide the funds to continue building new homes and working on Senior Projects helping our seniors stay in their homes. Our Habitat

My first suggestion would be the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, which runs the train from Garibaldi to Wheeler (and up the Nehalem River to Salmonberry Canyon), and is renovating the old Tillamook Southern Pacific railroad depot which is next to the Blue Heron cheese factory. They have two antique steam engines in operation, and are working on rebuilding a third. The Port of Tillamook Bay, being a public body, may be best placed to own the right-of-way, just like they do up north. There’s a couple of extra pieces of rolling stock around, too, in the form of two “Oregon Coast Explorer” self-powered passenger cars that used to be run by the Port of Tillamook Bay, years ago, when Pat Patterson and a few others convinced the Port of the viability of running tourist trains on the Port’s railroad line. Those old “Explorer” cars still run, and might be ideal for the initial runs on the new Pacific City railroad. We hear regularly from planner folks that we should be thinking “outside the box.” The above idea is probably a good distance outside the box. The question, though, is how many people are interested. Anybody?

Restore in Bay City also produces revenue plus materials for construction and our Senior Projects. We need volunteers to help with all the projects and fundraising activities and would love to have you come and join the Habitat Team. Call the office at (503) 842-7472 for more information.

Maxine Hope (Lyster) Barber Maxine Barber, a long-time resident of Tillamook, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Jan. 10, 2014. She was born June 16, 1925. Maxine moved to Tillamook in 1942 with her parents from Denmark, KS, married Glenn Barber in 1949, and they moved to Brickyard Road where they raised their family. Maxine also raised various barnyard animals and most of the vegetables and berries that were part of their daily meals. Maxine put her meticulous record keeping skills to good use as a bookkeeper for a couple of businesses in town as well as her church. Having grown up in the depression, she taught her family how to “make do” with what you have, stretching a dollar, a pot of soup, a piece of clothing etc., by re-purposing items long before it was popular to do so! Closest to her heart were her family, her church, and her garden. She was also enjoyed a

variety of other pursuits in her life, among them food preservation, cooking and baking, the Tillamook County Fair, square dancing, 4-H, and quality education for all. She had a good listening ear, and her smile was wide and authentic. Maxine is survived by her three children, Ken Barber, Wayne Barber and Lois Wagner; grandchildren Seth and Adam Barber, Rebekah Hopkins, Solomon, Benjamin, and Matthew Barber, and Nathan and Brian Wagner; and great-grandchildren Emma and Vivian Barber. A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 at 11 a.m., at the Tillamook United Methodist Church, 3808 Twelfth St., Tillamook, with a luncheon to follow. The family wishes to honor Maxine’s memory by offering houseplants to attendees at the service.

Her chosen charities are: Tillamook United Methodist Church Memorial Fund, and the Creation Vacation program of the Oregon Idaho Conference of the United Methodist Church (a camping experience offered to inner city families who have few of their own resources).

Repairs Continued from Page A3 that section of Highway 101 carries little freight because of weight restrictions. • ODOT also will be installing rock screening near the Jetty Creek bridge at about milepost 47. That section of Highway 101 gets school bus traffic, he said, so the highway will be closed only from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. – again, on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Traffic can detour around the closure by using Miami-Foley Road. Also planned for this summer is work by ODOT on the “Manzanita curves” on Highway 101 near the junction with

Fishing Continued from Page A1

The goal would be to provide more protection to wild fish by identifying areas that would not have hatchery programs, said state officials. But the audience’s consensus was to leave the rivers alone. “You’re taking the quality of fishing of the local community away,” said Bill Baertlein, a Tillamook County commissioner. “If we all have to congregate on one river, it’s a circus and the quality of fishing isn’t there anymore.” Baertlein said he supported increasing the number of hatchery fish, but had concerns about closing off any of the rivers. “If it ain’t broke, why are we trying to fix it?” questioned Ben Hathaway, the owner of Tillamook Sporting Goods. “We’re under attack in Tillamook,” declared Hathaway. “Our forests, our dairy farms and now our fisheries. “If you’re taking away from the Wilson and Kilchis and putting all the pressure on the Trask, fishing will suffer and the economy will suffer.” “Remember what we’re trying to accomplish here,” up! responded Ed Bowles, fish diUP. vision administrator for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. “We’re adding 200,000 additional hatchery fish in this plan. y OR

? Laneda Avenue. McKinley added that it will be a “two-season job.” The City of Manzanita has requested some improvements to the intersection. Meantime, a long-anticipated major re-paving job on Highway 101 from the Jetty Creek bridge to Wilson River Loop won’t begin until the summer of 2015. Instead, McKinley said, the Federal Highway Administration is requiring ODOT to fix all of the sidewalk handicapped-access ramps at intersections along the route, primarily in Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach. Many of the existing ramps pre-date current handicappedaccess standards. In fact, he said, many of the intersections don’t have handicapped ramps at all.

“In order to do that, we need to tighten the conservation belt in other places. Otherwise, you won’t get the extra hatchery fish.” But decreasing the number of hatchery fish on three of the region’s five rivers is “ridiculous,” argued Len Clarke, former president of Northwest Steelheaders. He said the state’s hatchery program already is troubled, citing poor returns during the past few years. “Fishing is great on the south coast,” said Clarke, “[but] it’s not happening on the north coast. We need a plan to take care of a really detrimental, dismal situation here on the north coast.” Added Clarke, “We need more hatchery fish on all of our Tillamook rivers, or our reputation and economy is going to suffer dramatically. “We don’t need to have every river be a purist environment. There are plenty of places for that and the north coast doesn’t have to be one of them.” Replied Bowles, “Right now, staff believes we want to put more fish on the north coast, and consolidate hatchery programs that aren’t producing much bang for the buck, in order to create a bunch more spring fish that economically, we think, there’s a big opportunity there. “And,” added Bowles, “provide new opportunity on rivers that currently don’t have any, like the Little Nestucca.” Others in the audience insisted there’s little proof that reduc-

And in downtown Tillamook, design work is underway on the Highway 101/Oregon Highway 6 intersection, to be followed by right-of-way purchases. Construction will start near the end of 2015. “We’re going to widen 101 from 10-foot to 12-foot lanes,” said McKinley, which will reduce the adjoining sidewalks’ width by 2 feet on each side. “Pacific Avenue will go straight through over a new bridge,” he added. The entire construction project will take two to three years to complete, McKinley told the commissioners. “We [will] work with each individual [business] to keep access open,” he said.

PROPOSED HATCHERY MANAGEMENT CHANGES 40,000 winter steelhead in the Kilchis River shifted to Wilson and Nestucca rivers 125,000 spring-run chinook in Wilson shifted to Trask River 30,000 summer steelhead in Wilson shifted to Nestucca Unfed fry (springand fall-run chinook) in the Trask and Nestucca phased out. ing hatchery fish increases the native fish population. Yet state officials said the Department of Fish and Wildlife is required by the state to craft a conservation plan for all of the native fish. Management plans already have been drafted for fish in the Willamette Valley and now along Oregon’s coast.

The Tokens appear in Tillamook Sunday, Feb 2 If you had a radio in 1961, chances are you asked yourself the question that crossed many peoples’ minds back then: What does “Wimoweh” mean? “Wimoweh” is the Anglicized version of the Zulu word “Mbube,” meaning “lion,” that was part of the background sound of the The Tokens’ smash hit single, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” The Tokens will perform in Tillamook Sunday, Feb. 2, at 2 p.m. in the Don Whitney Auditorium at Tillamook High School, 2605 12th St. in Tillamook. The event is the third in the current Monday Musical Club of Tillamook subscription series. Their recording of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” became the number one song in the country and has sold more than 15 million copies. According to a survey by the National Endowment for the Arts, the group’s classic recording is among the top 200 hits of all time. Other hits by The Tokens include, “Tonight I Fell in Love”

and “Portrait of My Love.” The group was among the first to use a falsetto lead voice, which was later used with much success by such groups as Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and even The Beach Boys. And later they produced hit records for groups such as The Chiffons (“He’s So Fine” and “One Fine Day”), The Happenings (“See You in September”) and Tony Orlando & Dawn (“Knock Three Times” and “Tie a Yellow Ribbon”). The Tokens even have a place in baseball history. In 1998, they did their historic National Anthem tour singing a-cappella versions of “The Star Spangled Banner” and “Oh, Canada” in all 30 of Major League Baseball’s stadiums, landing them in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first performers to do that in a single season. Advance tickets are $25 each for adults and $20 for students. Tickets at the door are priced at $30 for adults and $25 for students. To order advance tickets, send a check payable to the

Monday Musical Club of Tillamook to 6415 Westwood Court, Tillamook, OR 97141. Tickets may also be purchased at the offices of TLC Federal Credit Union and the Tillamook Chamber of Commerce. To order advance tickets with reserved seating, call (503) 842-2078. No advance tickets will be sold the day of an event. Major sponsors for the 2013 – 2014 concert season are the Headlight Herald; KTIL-FM 95.9 Real Country, KTIL-AM 1590 True Oldies and KDEPFM 105.5 Classic Rock and Terimore Lodging By The Sea. Rounding out the concert season Sunday, March 30, 2014, is a return engagement by the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra, a longtime favorite of Tillamook audiences. The band has been a favorite throughout the world since the 1940s with a string of classic hits including “In The Mood,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “String of Pearls,” and “Moonlight Serenade.”

County prepares to take dilapidated house in Garibaldi By Joe Wrabek

Formally, it’s known as an “expedited termination of redemption rights.” When the county forecloses on a property for unpaid taxes, the owner has a two-year “redemption period” in which to pay the back taxes, plus penalties and interest, and to recover the property. But the county can cut that redemption period short, and take immediate title to the property, if there’s of evidence of “abandonment or waste.” Tillamook County officials have had an ordinance on the books for four years allowing the county to do just that, the Headlight Herald was advised. County commissioners Bill Baertlein and Mark Labhart recently held a hearing on such an expedited terminaphototion of an abandoned house in Garibaldi. The house, at 205 Birch St., is an s. old church building. Owner Joani Azzone died there about 18 months ago and hadn’t lived in the house for a while before that, neighbors said. “She lived in cars out front,” said Linda Shattuck, who lives next door. “No one was allowed inside.”

“We’ve received a number of complaints from adjacent landowners,” Tillamook County’s chief of staff, Paul Levesque, told the commissioners. Azzone’s family “has been very specific” they don’t want the property, Shattuck said. “At one time, it was magnificent,” she added, “but over the last 25 years, it’s been abandoned physically.” “The house is currently abandoned and wasting quickly,” neighbor Jim Moran agreed. “The roof is open at the moment and birds are living there.” Real estate agent Matt Moran told the commissioners, “I would deem the property not salvageable. There’s a bad situation going on.” The lot that the building sits on – the structure has no foundation – might be worth $50,000 to 60,000, said Moran, “but taking care of the building would be costly.” Following the hearing, the three commissioners voted unanimously to prepare an order making the expedited termination official. That order will be voted on during the commissioners’ Photo by Joe Wrabek Jan. 29 meeting, Levesque said. The house at 205 Birch St. in Garibaldi, formerly a church building, is currently abandoned and “Then begins a 30-day clock” in wasting quickly. which the order can be appealed, he added.

Relay For Life of Tillamook

D! Tillamook High School seeks mentors



By Chelsea Yarnell

Walk the halls of Tillamook High School any given day of the week and you could see a 1966 THS graduate, or perhaps a retired elementary school librarian, or maybe a mother of two whose children are THS alumni. These Cheesemaker supporters are participants in the Mook Mates Mentor program, which places every junior in the high school into a group of about eight students overseen by a mentor. Throughout the year, the mentor and the students meet together and communicate through email and Facebook. Mentors are encouraged to provide additional support to students as they prepare to leave high school and enter the workforce or military, or attend college. Guidance based on the mentors’ personal experiences, as well as assistance from a variety of school employees, can help keep the students informed about life decisions. Tillamook High School alum Bob Miles helped pioneer the mentor program when it began in the summer of 2012. “The

reason I became a mentor was because when I was at Tillamook High School, Tillamook High School mentored me,” he said. “So it’s my turn to give back.” Thanks to his experience in the military and as a dentist, Miles has a wealth of knowledge to share. “The kids are receptive and you genuinely get to know them,” Miles said. “[We talk about] everything from their breakups, to their college aspirations, to their jobs, to their scholarship forms. We basically talk about how life is treating them today. Every time you meet with them, it’s a different topic.” Miles believes students benefit from the mentor program because it enables them to connect with an adult beyond their everyday network. “We talk about life on a very basic level,” Miles said, “because I’m not the teacher, I’m not the parent, I’m the friend. You’re able to open a door to trust and it’s wonderful.” The program still is in its early stages. Advocates hope to see it involve an increasing number of participants. “With local business support and the continued support of the original Mook Mates volunteers, this program has the potential to

make a lasting impact on students in our community,” said Shara Robertson, who coordinates the program, in addition to THS scholarships and service learning. Robertson helped start the program two years ago and has committed to its success. “Without her, the program would have failed,” Miles said. The Mook Mates Mentor program is seeking additional volunteers for this year’s junior class. Several of the mentors are Tillamook County Creamery Association employees; volunteers with other backgrounds are needed, too. “[You] could make a difference in the lives of teenagers just by showing you care,” Robertson said. “It is an opportunity to share information and experiences, but also a way to build a positive relationship with a teenager who might not have many positive relationships.” Prospective mentors must first pass a school district background check. For more information, call Robertson at 503842-2566, ext. 2320; or email robertsons@tillamook.k12.

Mooks keep it together Tillamook: 59 Seaside: 49 by Chelsea Yarnell It looked like Seaside was going to have a better game than the Mooks on Saturday afternoon; their posts made shot after shot while the Cheesemakers struggled beneath the basket the whole first quarter. But, David Waud, Zane Wright, and Joey Hancock found some easy jump shots that kept Tillamook in the game. A missed layup from the Seagulls at the end of the first quarter left the Cheesemakers ahead 14-11. A nice steal by Joey Hancock highlighted the second quarter. Hancock deflected the ball away from Seaside’s guard and Zane Wright controlled it for a breakaway down the court. On his way up to the basket he was fouled and went to the line. Near the end of the second, Tillamook pulled away with a six point lead, but the Seagulls didn’t give up easily. A few pick-offs from Seaside brought them back within a point. At the half, the Cheesemakers still held a small lead, 3227. After the break, several inbound plays were picked off by both teams and made for some easy layup points. The Mooks still kept the lead at the end of the third, 45-37. Improving their shot percentage in the key and gaining more rebounds, the Cheesemakers capitalized on their lead at the start of the fourth and earned five additional points in the first minute while holding the Seagulls to zero, 50-37. With 1:50 to go in the game, the Seaside coach received a

Jan. 21 was just the start

of the journey for the Cheesemakers to prove they’re the best in the league; and they started it off right. The Cheesemakers won against the Scappoose Indians, 69-62. The Tillamook boys earned a 12-point lead at halftime, executing backdoor cuts and putting down mid-range shots. The Indians came back in the third quarter with a newly devised defense plan to cut down on backdoor opportunities. The new plan limited the Cheesemakers opportunity to score, only earning eight points compared to Scappoose’s 16 in the third quarter. As in most close scoring games, it came down to free throws. The Cheesemakers performed well enough at the line to secure their win. David Waud led the Cheesemakers with 19 points. Tillamook is undefeated in the Cowapa League, 2-0. The Cheesemakers will

Predictable passes lose Mooks possession time

Nestucca: 19 Faith Bible: 36 by Chelsea Yarnell Six-foot Marra Iriving of Faith Bible really put a stop to the Bobcat’s game on Jan. 21. With at least eight blocked shots for the evening, her performance minimized the points on the board for the Nestucca girls. The Bobcats lost 19-36 to the Falcons. “The girls played really well,” Head Coach Tim Foster said. “We got too many shots blocked trying

to shoot over taller defenders, but we stayed aggressive on offense and that’s what we need to do.” The last time the girls played Faith Bible on Jan. 7 they lost 14-39. So, reducing the winning margin was an improvement for the team. “Failing to score in the second quarter definitely set us back a bit, but our defense kept the game within reach by only allowing them to score 16 in the first half,” Foster said. And, as usual, the girls showed their true character and didn’t back down till the end of the game. “The thing that really stood

out to me was our willingness to play hard and with intensity until the last seconds of the game,” Foster said. “That kind of work ethic will pay off when we get into the final minutes of close games in the future.” Several young Bobcats also saw quality playing time due to missed practice time from their other teammates. “[The] younger girls filled in nicely when the rest of them got called on to play. They were ready and contributed,” Foster said. Kycie Richwine and Monica Chatelain led the Bobcats in scoring with six points apiece.

Nestucca: 5 0 7 7 Faith Bible: 10 6 8 10 Nestucca scoring- Kycie Richwine 6, Monica Chatelain 6, Sunny McCall 5, Perla Gracia 2 Nestucca traveled to Knappa on Friday and then to Vernonia on Saturday.

In their last matchup on Dec. 20, the Pirates won 4610.

Tillamook: 33 Seaside: 55

by Chelsea Yarnell With only four girls putting points on the board for the Cheesemakers, it was a hard struggle against Seaside on Saturday afternoon. Junior Jamie Kottre opened the game with the first basket of the game. But, that was the only lead the Mooks saw. The girls stayed close at the start of the game, 5-7 till the middle of the first quarter. Then, Seaside’s Whitney Westerholm got hot on the threes and the Seagulls took off. Seaside took the lead 21-11 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the game got away from the Mooks with their predictable passes. The Seagulls defense easily attacked the Cheesemaker’s plays and took advantage of more possession time. At the break, the girls fell further behind at 18-32. At the end of the fourth, confusion from a forgetful referee left some puzzled. Seaside was fouled for two shots. So, the fouled Seagull shot the first and then Tillamook Head Coach Danielle Weber called for a time-out. After the break, both teams lined up for the last free throw shot. The ball bounced off the rim and Tillamook’s Jordan Zweifel grabbed the rebound. The ref blew his whistle, indicating there was another free throw opportunity. Realizing that both shots had already been shot, he reissued the ball to Seaside on the sideline, even though Tillamook clearly grabbed the rebound. Luckily, the Seagulls fouled the Mooks on the inbound play and the Cheesemakers earned the ball back. Despite the mix-up, the Cheesemakers still couldn’t bridge the gap. The girls lost 33-55. Junior Jamie Kottre lead in scoring with 15 points and nine rebounds. “I thought [on] Saturday we played one of our better games of basketball,” Head Coach Danielle Weber said. “Ever since the Stayton game, I have been preaching that we need to go inside to where our strengths are on offense. And since then we have put a fair amount of points up on the board.”

The first quarter was the only time the Cheesemaker girls saw a lead against the Indians. Tillamook’s Jamie Kottre and Jordan Zweifel helped earn twelve of the team’s points in the first quarter, edging the Cheesemakers to a 15-9 lead early on. But, the girls still came up short and were defeated 45-64. Traps from the Indians, forced many Cheesemaker turnovers and allowed the Indians to score easy lay-ups. Unable to move the ball easily to post Kottre, the Cheesemakers struggled to score in the second half, only earning 17 points to Scappoose’s 38. Zweifel led Tillamook with 19 points and nine rebounds followed by Kottre with 18 points and eight rebounds. “I thought we played really well in both games despite coming away with two loses,” Weber said. “...I look forward to this week’s games and hopefully we can walk away with a couple wins.” The Cheesemakers host Astoria on Friday at 7 p.m. The girls are fifth of six in the Cowapa League with a 0-2 record.

Tillamook wrestling claims six team wins in back-to-back matches Easily winning both duals, the Cheesemaker wrestlers found wins against Banks and Yamhill-Carlton at home on Thursday night. Elijah Prince, Justin Coon, Michael Dooher, Logan Weeks, Anthony Imel, Christian Mata, Christian Ybarra, and Dylan Jackman all had pins in their matches against Yamhill-Carlton. “The kids have been doing well. Our numbers are a little low, but the kids who have stuck it out are having some success,” Head Coach Lonnie Eggert said. “It’s been a grind for them,” Eggert continue. “The [Oregon] Classic was a long weekend for them, so they were a little flat tonight.” Senior wrestlers and their parents were each honored prior to the duals. Seniors gave thanks to each of their supporters and the Tillamook wrestling program thanked each athlete for their commitment to the sport. After Thursday night’s match,

the team returned to the mats for the Tillamook Invite on Friday. “Tomorrow will be an eyeopener for them,” Eggert said the night before the Invite, “especially since they’re back-toback.” But Eggert reassured that the team is conditioned to have endurance. “They’ll respond...they get better as it gets longer. They’re used to feeling beat up,” Eggert said. “Overall I’ve been happy with the group. They’re working hard and that’s all we really ask of them.” And they responded indeed. The Cheesemakers claimed four additional wins, a total of six in 24 hours. At the invite, Tillamook beat Willamina (36-33), Stayton (613), Estacada (42-30), and Rainer (42-32.)

THE WAVE: ONE MILLION RIDES AND ROLLING! We are excited to share that The WAVE reached a milestone of One Million Rides! We hope you have enjoyed our four part series “The WAVE: One Million Rides and Rolling!” SERIES FOUR OF A FOUR PART SERIES, THE WAVE...ROLLING INTO THE FUTURE... In December 1997, after the District’s Board of Directors appointed the first general manager, an additional dispatcher was hired along with one clerical staff to help manage the newly formed District. At this time, the District had two drivers then added a third driver in June 1997. As The WAVE completes its 16th year of serving Tillamook County, it has grown to employ a staff of 34 employees and 22 volunteers. There are currently 27 drivers, 2 dispatchers and 5 office employees as well as 11 volunteer drivers and 11 volunteer Ride Ambassadors. This past year, The WAVE’s volunteer drivers volunteered 2,175 hours while providing 2,654 trips. Since March 2013, the volunteer Ride Ambassadors have logged 1,755 hours greeting out-of-area visitors and assisting passengers with route and schedule information. The Wave demonstration project’s ridership grew from about 20 trips per month in October 1996 to more than 500 trips per month by November 1997. Ridership during the demonstration project was limited by available funding to purchase vehicles and amount of service that could be provided. Ridership remained steady until the passage of the local operating tax levy in November 1997. The levy enabled The WAVE to expand services so The Wave would be a more viable transportation option. After new services were introduced, ridership grew from 6,027 trips in 1999 to more than 25,231 in 2000. By 2005 ridership had increased to 66,247 and in 2011 ridership surpassed 100,000 riders per year. This year, The WAVE’s estimated ridership will be 136,242. TCTD Historical Ridership 160000

The NWOCA partnership has provided The WAVE with some opportunities to expand service to Salem. Over the past year, The WAVE has been coordinating with ODOT, Lincoln County Transportation Service District, Salem-Keizer Transit District, Yamhill County Transit District and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and Siletz to plan a new service between Lincoln City, Grand Ronde and Salem. This new service will be called the “Coastal Connector” and will provide up to 3 round trips per day with stops at Chinook Winds Casino, Rose Lodge, Grand Ronde Tribal Center, Spirit Mountain Casino and the Greyhound/Amtrak terminals in Salem. This new service is tentatively scheduled to begin operations in March 2014. As Tillamook County Transportation District plans for the future, the District will be updating its transit development plan to ensure The Wave services remain sustainable well into the future. Meanwhile, this planning effort will address other unmet transit needs in Tillamook County and will seek to plan for new bus stop facilities that are visible, safe and accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists. Stay tuned for opportunities to attend some of our public outreach efforts and get involved in the future of The WAVE! Visit us at, “Our Story” tab for the complete series.

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Transit Center to help us celebrate our great success. A special thanks to the following local businesses for donating the great prizes we gave away:


Annual Trips

Then, in February 2012 service was extended from Neskowin and Otis to Lincoln City where passengers could connect with Lincoln County Transportation services and travel to Newport. This connection resulted in ridership on The WAVE’s Route 4 to Lincoln City to increase by more than 150% within a year.

In 2011, The WAVE became a charter member of the Northwest Oregon Connector Alliance (“NWOCA”). Other NWOCA charter members include the transportation districts in Columbia, Clatsop, Lincoln and Benton counties. The NWOCA partnership provides the five transportation districts a formal process to coordinate their collective services as single service.

The annual December auction raised $21,000 for Habitat for Humanity, an all-time record for the event.

Auction supports Habitat Submitted by Habitat for Humanity Tillamook County Habitat for Humanity raised $21,000 at the December Annual Auction event; this was an all-time record for the event due to the new location and change in venue this year. The event was held at the Tillamook County Fair Grounds and featured Hor d’ oeuvres and a full dinner catered by the Pacific Restaurant in Tillamook. The evening featured wines from the Big Table Farm in Gaston and beer from the Pelican Pub Brewery in Pacific City; we greatly appreciate the generosity of both of these new supporters. The Conference Center at the Fair Grounds was turned into a winter wonderland by Melissa Finnell and all the volunteers. The Master of Ceremonies

Lisa Phipps; auctioneers Steve Bauer and Tony Enzler kept the evening lively and the pace moving with all the wonderful auction items that were donated. We extend our gratitude to Lisa and Steve for their long term commitment to Habitat at our annual event and to Tony Enzler who stepped in for Vern Mobley, our other auctioneer who was unable to make the event this year. Mark and Melanie Labhart graciously showed all the oral auction items again this year and we love having them each year. Lisa Phipps announced the funding would be used for building Habitat homes and then introduced Kevin Bond and Brandi Pierson the current Habitat family whose home would be dedicated in December. Chris Spence General Contractor volunteered to lead the project this past sum-

mer and make it possible to complete the home before year end. The board members recognized Judy Sours past president and Alice Voges for their years of service on the Habitat Board of Directors and presented each with a dozen red roses. The new board members and officers were recognized at the event; Tammy Crossley President, Wanda Kinkade Vice President, Whitey Forsman Treasurer, Terry Phillips Secretary and board members James Billstine, Cyrus Javadi, Brad Pierce, Tom Latourette, Daniel Miller, Dick Trapp, Judy Sours, Stan Hasbrouck and Marie Hasbrouck. Wanda Kinkade announced that Kathleen Sullivan the Executive Director was retiring and summarized accomplishments during the 14 years with the original board of directors

and then presented Kathleen with a dozen red roses. Thank you to every volunteer who helped preparing for the auction, picking up items, decorating, making telephone calls, set up for the auction and clean up and removal of all the decorations. The event is a success because everyone has given endless hours with a heart to make a difference together. The generosity of our supporters who attend the event, businesses and artists, wineries and others who donate items they are the heart of our auction and make it possible to continue to raise funding for affordable housing and senior projects in our communities. Thank you to all of you and Thrivent for the grant donation of $750.00 for the event this year.

More than 100 show up for cook off The Chili Bowl Cook off went off without a hitch at Neahkahnie High School in Rockaway Beach. More than 100 folks, from all over the county and the Portland area, sampled chili and cornbread from our local fire departments. Included in these were Rockaway Beach Fire and Rescue Cadets, Bay City Fire and Rescue, Netarts/ Oceanside Fire and Rescue, Nehalem Fire and Rescue, Nestucca Volunteer Firefighter Association, and Rockaway Beach Volunteer Fire Department. All the proceeds from the cook off and a few large containers of food are being donated to the Oregon Food Bank Tillamook County Services. The Peoples Choice Trophies for the Best Chili went to the Nestucca Fire Department. Second prize went to Rockaway Beach Fire, and third went to The Rockaway Beach Cadets. The Best Cornbread Winner was Elsie Fire and Rescue. Second went to

Friends of Netarts Bay expands ‘Day on the Bay’ The Friends of Netarts Bay (WEBS) has received a new grant of $14,650 from the Oregon Community Foundation’s Salty Dog Fund. This money will provide the dollars needed to continue the popular “Second Grade Day on the Bay,” which will be in its eighth year, as well as the newer “Fourth Grade Geology Tour.” Importantly, this year will be the first year to see a substantial expansion by WEBS and the Tillamook School District to include the third and fifth grades so that children at four grade levels will have an opportunity to experience the wonders of the ocean and bay environments. WEBS will also be continuing its programs for adults with

workshops informing people about shellfish and birding opportunities in and around Netarts Bay. Netarts Bay and the area from Cape Lookout to Cape Meares is increasingly seen as a unique locale for environmental learning. The easy access and relatively pristine conditions found in this small area have demonstrated its special character and distinctive quality for practical ecological education. Educators from many parts of Oregon and other states are using this particular location to help students and other interested persons learn about the watersheds, estuaries, beaches and seas that are so important to the Oregon Coast and elsewhere.

Gambling issues arise over the big game, even in Tillamook County Super Bowl XLVIII is upon us, and millions of Americans will be cheering on the Seahawks and Broncos. Fans have been waiting all season to see their teams reach the big game and the stakes are high – in more ways than one. It is estimated $10 Billion is bet on the Super Bowl each year. For most people it’s really just a way to have fun, but for the thousands of Oregonians who have become problem gamblers, the Super Bowl stakes are much higher. Gambling can become as addictive as alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Events like the Super Bowl can serve as “triggers” for people with gambling problems. But there is help for problem gamblers. “There is a strong emphasis on betting during what is often a family event of watching the game, but there is no message about the fact that gambling can be risky,” said JoDee Ridderbusch with Tillamook Family Counseling Center. “We are concerned not only with people struggling with gambling addiction who can see betting on the Super Bowl as a last hope to recoup their losses from wagering on the season, but kids as well. Parents can use this event

as a teachable moment and talk about the fact that gambling can become addictive.” It is estimated that 34 percent of 6th graders in Tillamook County gamble. It is also estimated that there are more than 500 adult problem gamblers. “Each problem gambler affects six to 10 people around them, so the impact in this area adds up fast,” said Ridderbusch. How to know if someone has a gambling problem: • They are often preoccupied with gambling. • They bet more money and more frequently. • They lie about the money and time they spend gambling. • They often chase their losses by betting more in a futile attempt to regain the money they’ve lost. If you or someone you care about is putting too much at stake with their gambling, free and confidential help is available by calling 1-877-mylimit or by going to 1877mylimit. org, you can also contact Tillamook Family Counseling Center at 503-842-8201. If you are a family member of a problem gambler, you also can get help with or without the direct involvement of the gambler.

hings are quieting down somewhat with the holidays now behind us, but with school, sports and extra-curricular activities I’m sure everyone is still busy. If you do find some time, though, mark your calendar for Saturday, Feb. 1. There will be a seed exchange going on at The Beehive located at 35870 7th St. (Hwy. 101) in Nehalem. This is a free event; if you have seeds, bring some to exchange and share. If you don’t have seeds you are welcome to take seeds home to start a garden; all seeds are free. The event sponsors are Fulcrum Community Resources, The Nehalem Beehive, NCRD and Salt & Paper. So come and swap herb, vegetable, flower and native plant seeds – also some information with other gardeners at the First Annual Nehalem area seed exchange.



hanks to all who came to Kevin Greenwood’s going-away party Jan. 22 at the Garibaldi museum. Thanks, too, to Mary Sause for organizing it, and to the Museum’s board for making the space available for the event. It was neat. From the Port of Garibaldi, Kevin got a framed overhead photo of the port by the Coast’s famous aerial photographer, Don Best – recently taken, because it showed the new boat was completed and the big pile-setting crane on the end of the wharf – and from Mary, Kevin got a framed photo of the harbor at Yaquina Bay, where he’ll be going to work at the beginning of February as manager of the

They will start at 12 p.m. and go until 3 p.m. with the introductory talk starting at 1 p.m. Would you like to impact the future? The North County Recreation District is inviting members of the community to apply for the opportunity to influence the future direction of this important community asset. The following positions are available: board of directors – one volunteer position. The appointed candidate will serve on a five-person board responsible for oversight and leadership of the district and its $1.5 million budget. Evening board meetings are held monthly, while additional meetings are held as required. Also, the capital improvement plan committee – two volunteer positions. This standing committee plans and prioritizes major maintenance and upgrade projects on the districts 80-plus year old facilities. Some experiences with building construction or maintenance is desirable. Candidates interested in serving in any of these volunteer positions should apply in writing, providing a brief description of their background and experience to: General Manager, NCRD. P.O. Box 207, Nehalem, Ore. 97131 or e-mail to Please

apply before Feb. 10 to enable appointments to be made at the Feb. 13 board meeting. This is a great opportunity. If you have children in the elementary school looking for a way to relax and have some fun doing it have them try out the Yoga for Kids, Charlene Gernert, who is a certified yoga instructor and child educator; this is fun, engaging and developmental-appropriate – every class has a different theme, yet it builds on the last one. They provide an opportunity for exercise, coordination, body and spatial awareness, self-discovery, socialization, and so much more. The classes are 10 consecutive weeks: Jan. 8 through March 18 on Wednesdays at 2:45 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. (NKN district early release days subject to time change on Feb. 12 and March 12). A light snack will be provided. Yoga mats will be available. Wear or bring comfortable clothes. The cost is $50 for the 10 week session; for more information and to sign up please contact Charlene directly at 503-3228417 or e-mail at Happy Birthday this week to; Stan Cornes of Nehalem, David Stover of Nehalem and JoAnn Davidson of Banks.

Port of Newport. Two more weekends remain in which you can see TAPA’s performance of “The Pajama Game” at The Barn Community Playhouse. Friday and Saturday nights, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and Feb. 7 and 8, at 7 p.m., and one Sunday matinee on Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. Romance – and union activity – at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory (hence the title); there’s even a strike, for a 7-1/2 cent wage increase (the Richard Bissell novel the play is based on was called “7-1/2 Cents”). Roberta Bettis is in it; so is Annie Bishop, Robert Bishop, Matthew Brasil, Julie Bucknam, Gerry Cortimilia, John Davy, Karen Downs, Bill Farnum, Lisa Greiner, Cyndi Lewis, Wally Nelson, TJ Newton, and Liz Tosch. Directed by Kelli McMellon. It’s a musical, with lots of singing and dancing. George Abbott and Richard Bissell wrote the Broadway play (with music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross). You’ll probably remember a lot of the songs – they’ve become popular musical standards.

First of the Garibaldi library’s next round of 45-minute one-on-one computer classes will be on Feb. 14; if you miss that one, or can’t make it, there will be two more sessions, on April 4 and May 23 (all those are Fridays). You’ll learn basic Microsoft Word and Excel, basic Internet and email, and – important – training on the new, popular e-readers. Contact Norma at the library (503-322-2100) to sign up. And it’s best to do that early – these classes fill up real fast. And remember the library is also now carrying SEEDS you can check out – 10 packs of seeds from the “seed lending library” per visit. You don’t return them; what you do is plant them, and then collect some seeds from your plants at the end of the growing season and bring those to the library to share with others next year. Lastly, Jane Dunkin, Russ Hosley and I will be doing a Groundhog Day show Sunday, Feb. 2 at the Nehalem Beehive in downtown Nehalem. Acoustic, mostly original music. Do come if you can.

esides her work as Treasurer for Nesko Women’s Club, Penny Storry also leads South Tillamook County’s only Girl Scout Troop, 12 local girls with some ambitious goals for the upcoming Girl Scout Cookie sale- a Cookie Goal, two Service Goals, and a Fun and Learning Goal. Last year, the troop sold 1,800 boxes of cookies. This year, they’ve set a goal to sell 3,600 boxes, with a plan to send at least 600 boxes of cookies to American Troops. Besides the plan to send Girl Scout cookies to U.S. Servicemen and women through, another service goal is to help homeless people and animals, by donating a share of profits to local Habitat for Humanity and ASPCA groups. Their Fun and Learning goal is to send every girl in the troop away to a Girl

Page B3 Scout camp this summer. We can help the girls reach their goals, either by purchasing cookies for ourselves, as a gift, or to send to the U.S. Service personnel (purchasers can pay for boxes that will be donated.) Contact Penny by phone at 530-409-4861 or email to pennyetgary@gmail. com. She’ll arrange for one of the Girl Scouts to e-mail or telephone you. The Neskowin, Nestucca Sandlake Watersheds Council met Tuesday evening, Jan. 21 for a regular board meeting and to host two speakers on fish habitat. Council Coordinator, Alex Sifford’s report included a summary of 2013 accomplishments, which brought close to $700,000 to Tillamook County: • Streamside plantings of 2.8 stream miles totaling 11 acres with 11 different landowners, and maintenance of 11 stream miles totaling 43 acres. • Stream Restoration that replaced a large culvert on Farmer Creek Road near Hebo with a new 70 foot long bridge and installed a new 26 foot long bridge on Butte Creek in Neskowin. • Students at Nestucca Valley Elementary and Neskowin Valley School propagated over 1,000 native plants in 2013. 

• In April 41 volunteers removed over 2,500 pounds of debris from Nestucca Bay. This was the seventh such clean-up making nearly ten tons of debris taken out of the bay over the years. • More than 139 students and 12 adults participated in the Children’s Clean Water Festival and plant classes in April and a new Science Camp in July.  Our hearts go out to Gus Peterson, family and friends who mourn the unexpected loss last Sunday night of Lois Peterson of cardiac arrest at home. Lois owned and operated Cloverdale’s downtown Shell Shop. Ever since she and Gus led the Clover’s Day parade as Grand Marshals last July, I’ve thought of Lois as the “Queen of Cloverdale,” she had her thumb on the pulse of the community, and she and Gus donated endless energy to the town and its homeless cats. She will be missed. Happy birthday this week to: Evan Carver, Monica Chatelain, Talisa Galloway, Hanna Geil, Finn and Kate Hagerty, Amybeth Hancock, Kyle Howard, Sharon Kesey, Tre Kiepke, Verone Lane, Bryce and Stormee McKillip, Beverly Measor, Steve Neal, Sarah Sandberg, Kathy Trent,  and Isla Wills.

Tillamook students celebrate National School Choice Week Cyber students in Tillamook are meeting up in person to celebrate their choice in public education. Kids and teachers from online schools will be meeting in Tillamook, one of over 5,000 nationwide events taking place during National School Choice Week, Jan. 26-Feb. 1, 2014. On Jan. 31, the school community will be participating in an ORVA 1950s-themed Sock Hop, with family friendly music, themed social games for all

grades, an art station, and refreshments. In growing numbers, families are choosing the most effective educational options for each child’s individual needs including online public schools, blended learning, charter schools, homeschool and more. Full-time online schools like Oregon Virtual Academy and Insight School of Oregon are available statewide for Oregon students in grades K-12.

Many full-time, online schools such as Oregon Virtual Academy and Insight School of Oregon, are public school options, which makes this choice available to families at no cost regardless of geographic, financial or demographic circumstance. The schools offer individualized education with Oregon-credentialed teachers and an integrated mix of innovative technology and hands-on learning tools.

Wilson River Highway to get a safety makeover State Highway 6 (the Wilson River Highway), a scenic stretch from Banks to Tillamook and a popular route to the Oregon coast, will be safer from falling trees and limbs, thanks to a partnership between the Oregon Departments of Forestry (ODF) and Transportation (ODOT). The project will remove trees infected with laminated root rot along 35 acres of the highway corridor in 18 different locations. ODOT, citing safety concerns, initially requested removal along the 3-mile stretch following a survey process identifying infected areas. All removal will comply with the Forest Practices Act, and land will be replanted with tree species resistant to or tolerant of the root disease.

Protective tubes will be placed around seedlings to limit damage from deer and elk foraging. The project is funded entirely by the sale of timber from the parcels. “This project is a perfect example of how transportation and forest management come together for the benefit of Oregonians. Highway 6 is a vital link between Portland and Tillamook for both families and commerce,” said Wayne Auble, Assistant District Forester with ODF’s Forest Grove District and the project lead. Work will begin on Feb. 3 and continue intermittently until May 23. Motorists can expect to see work and flaggers on or around mileposts 33-36, about 30 miles west of Banks. Mo-

torists should use caution in the work zone and expect minor delays of up to 20 minutes. According to Auble, laminated root rot is a common fungal disease in Douglas-fir forests and western Oregon. Because of the disease’s ability to spread to healthy roots, the best treatment is removing all infected trees, and planting others less susceptible such as cedar, hemlock or red alder. “When infected, the tree’s root system dies and the tree could fall over, ultimately creating dangerous hazards for travelers, general road maintenance, and structures in public areas,” Auble said. “This project promotes forest health while helping to make it safer for those on Highway 6.”

his is a little tidbit of information from the holidays to share with you. Dale and I had a wonderful visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. They showered us with gifts and Santa even played a little ditty on our guitar for us. Of course, I played Jingle Bells on my ukulele for them (my first performance for anyone!) Their visit totally made our holiday! Only in Rockaway Beach... We just spent the morning with Pat Olson, and Betty Baumgart helping paint Ruth Daugherty’s living quarters. Then after two coats we left and crew number two showed up the next day to finish. We had lots of giggles and it was so much fun! The Rockaway Beach Park and Rec have begun their Sunday afternoon Bingo. It begins at 1 p.m. at the community center north of town. It will be running for eight weeks and is loads of fun. If you would like to volunteer to help out, call the City Hall. It will greatly appreciated. Speaking of the Parks and Rec Program, the Annual Spaghetti Dinner and Auction is coming up March 1. Be sure to mark that date on your calendar. And if you would like to get involved, this a great event to volunteer for. Phyllis Baker ran it

eremiah is not necessarily the name of a bullfrog. I was down at the library today and on Dec. 30, Dianne Griffith filled up the fish tank with salmon eggs again. There was only one that had hatched so far so I named him Jeremiah as he looks like he will be strong and mighty. Thank you Dianne and the Bay City Library for giving our community the chance to follow along up close and personal the life cycle of these salmon that are so native to our area. The library is open Tuesday-Friday noon till 5 and Saturday 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Story time is always on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. Drop by the library and pick out your salmon. You will be pleasantly surprised how easy it is for you to find your fish each time you visit. Pajama Game is now playing at the Tillamook Theatre (behind Les Schwab) It is a song and dance filled musical featuring famous numbers like “Steam Heat” It is fast, fun, and rollicking, as well as an unconventional romantic comedy that you won’t want to miss. Playing Jan. 31, Feb. 1,2,7,8 and 9. For ticket information contact Diamond Art Jewelers at 503-842-7940 OK, I have a question for anyone out there; Jim and I are certainly stumped: The railroad tracks coming from Garibaldi cross over the east side of 101 down around the curves leaving town. When you get into Bay City on 101 the tracks are on the west side again. Where do they cross over from east to west? I hope someone knows so I don’t have to walk the tracks to find out. My ankle is not completely healed and it would be gruesome for me. Please email me with your answer or any information you can contribute on this matter. Thanks ahead of time! This was sent to me via city hall from the Tillamook Postmaster: Today I heard some rumors that some members in the community are stating that the postal ser-

for years, and with her passing, we could use more help. Dale and I will be there with bells on. They would also love donations for their auction. New or gently used items would be nice. Contact Laurie DeKlyen by leaving a message at City Hall (503 355 2291). The Master Gardener’s Learning Garden Renovation raffle is coming up.. The tickets are $25 each and if your ticket is picked, the prize is $1,000 cash! The winning ticket will be drawn on Sat, Feb. 1 from 2-4 at the “First Sign of Spring” celebration at the Pioneer Museum. All of you are invited. They will be serving appetizers and wine tasting. And you don’t need to be present to win. Tickets are available at the Pioneer Museum. You may want to consider buying a commemorative brick at our beautiful new wayside. What a fun way to remember your friends or family or even an occasion that triggers a memory. Dale and I bought one in memory of our Rockatooter Kazoo Band we had for 16 years. We’ve disbanded now because of my vocal cord issues, but they are among some of our fondest memories of Rockaway Beach. July 4th is a magical day in our town! Besides their weekly Saturday night bingo, the Lions are planning a Valentine’s Breakfast, Sun. Feb. 16. Be sure to mark your calendars and I will give you more info as the date gets closer. This is a message for a friend. You will know who you are. “Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.” That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated!”

vice is planning to close the Bay City Community Post Office (CPO). These rumors couldn’t be further from the truth. As you know the Bay City Community Post Office is a contract post office. I was aware that many members of the community would not be able to come into town to pick up their mail. It would have been a large burden for the community. We were able to do something that nobody has been able to do up to this point. We were able to lease the facility and I am using unbudgeted work hours to service post office boxes at the CPO. Unfortunately we had to temporarily suspend retail operations due to budget and staffing issues with our clerks in Tillamook. If we were planning to close the facility I certainly would not be paying a lease and paying for someone to come over and service the boxes on a daily basis. As you know procurement in government entities is very deliberate and the rules are extremely rigid. It is a good thing but it does stretch out the amount of time it takes to award a contract. We are, however, moving along. These letters announce that we are actively seeking someone to operate the post office. Interested parties were to contact me if they were interested in receiving a solicitation packet. We are required to keep this phase open for 30 days. At the close of business on Jan. 19 I will forward the list of interested parties to Postal Service Headquarters. They will turn send solicitation packets to the individuals. The packets will invite them to place a bid on operating the post office. The bid will include overhead such as rent, utilities and a business bond. It will also include labor costs Once the contract is awarded we will provide a certain amount of training to the successful bidder before we let them start running the office. At this time I have 15 interested businesses and/or individuals on my list. I assure you that I am actively pushing to get this contract awarded quickly while following procurement regulations. We are doing everything we can to provide postal services to the community. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Wayne Peterson Have a great week and see you around town.

Water, water everywhere W ater. A few months ago as I was perusing the front page of The Headlight Herald, I saw three of the headlines were about water, Bayocean, a town the ocean finally took by 1952, an 83mph rainstorm during which I personally lost a shingle, and on Garibaldi’s waterfront, a fish-filleting story. According to the World Health Organization, about 17 percent of the world’s population doesn’t have access to clean water – that’s nearly one billion people. They should move here. We’ve got plenty. Of the four elements the ancients claimed made up the universe, air, earth fire, and water, between the eight or so rivers on one side and the ocean on the other, between the devil and the deep blue sea, our element is water in this county. We are water people here. Flooding is a fact of life in Tillamook County. Only 3 percent of the world’s water supply is fresh water, and 77 percent of that is frozen. According to National Geographic, of the 23 percent that is not frozen, only a half a

SCHUBERT MOORE 503-965-3681

percent is available to supply every plant, animal and person on Earth with all the water they need to survive. You might remind yourself of this fact the next time Hwy 101 is closed because the Wilson River is over its banks again. You can get drunk on water. Symptoms of water intoxication actually look a lot like the symptoms of alcohol intoxication, including nausea, altered mental state, and vomiting and can also be caused by bulimia or diarrhea. (This is the second time in a month I’ve managed a valid use of the word diarrhea in a column.) Water intoxication causes an electrolyte imbalance that affects concentrations of salt

and leads to a condition called hyponatremia, causing massive cell damage. Brain cells are constrained by the skull and can end up bursting with the pressure of the water they are taking in. The next time someone grabs the sides of the head and says you’re making my brain explode, like my wife does occasionally, you might ask, how much water have you been drinking. Sports drinks can prevent this condition by providing electrolytes, or if you’re watching your budget, a glass of water with a pinch of salt and a squeeze of citrus will do the same job. The exact amount of water intake that can lead to water intoxication is unknown and varies with each individual. Other symptoms include headaches, muscle weakness and convulsions. The condition is quite rare in the general population, but in distance athletics, it’s a known risk and is often avoided by drinking sports drinks instead of water during training and events. On Jan. 12, 2007, radio station KDND conducted a

water-drinking contest, “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” in which they promised a Wii video game system as first prize for the contestant able to hold the most water. A listener named Jennifer Strange, 28, died of water intoxication hours after taking part in the contest. The Morning Rave DJ’s were fired and the station went out of business. The conclusion is obvious. Drinking too much water can be dangerous to your career. I worry about you. Don’t eat or drink more than your mother wants you to. Don’t drive through floodwaters on Hwy 101. I want all of you back here next week. I want you to take care of yourselves. You and your significant other? I want you two to, too. (Notice the three tu’s in a row in the previous sentence, and it is impossible to write the previous clause grammatically correct.) Actually, anyone who takes part in an eating or drinking contest is fodder for the Darwin Awards and doesn’t belong in the (alert: water allusion) gene pool.
