Goodwill to build $5.2 million store in Lincoln City JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette is preparing to build a multi-million dollar, 24,000-square-foot thrift store and donation center on two acres

between 9th Street running east of Highway 101 to S.E. Jetty Avenue. The News Guard has learned that a purchase agreement has been reached between Goodwill and the five owners of the property to move the project forward. According to the Lincoln County

Assessor office, the land has a market value of $1,284,120. Dale Emanuel, Goodwill spokesperson, said once the new store opens, the existing store, built in 2001 at the Lighthouse Shopping Center, would be closed. Emanuel said Goodwill hopes

to break ground on or around April 1 and employ about 40 people. She said the new store is an investment in providing a permanent place for Goodwill to serve Oregon’s north coast. See GOODWILL, Page A5

Movie to illustrate plight of homeless American Winter • 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 1 • Bijou Theatre 1624 N.E. Highway 101 Lincoln City • 541-996-4878 past the myths and misconceptions of homelessness at the reality. Organizers said the United States has the highest population of poor citizens since records have been kept, greater than during the Great Depression and with 46 percent of Americans living in or near poverty, such everyday occurrences as a blown tire or

a toothache can mean the difference between paying the rent and living in the car, putting gas in the tank to get to work or buying food for the family. Following the film, a the panel discussion will be held featuring Hanna Connett, HELP advocate; Linda Roy, Family Promise of Lincoln County interim director; Bill Hall, Lincoln County commissioner, and Pat Robertson, Backpack for Kids Program co-founder. “United we are so much stronger,” said Connett. “As organizations, we work together to meet the many needs of our local children, and we invite the community to join us. Together we can make a more effective impact.”

HELP AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator Lynn Foster thanked Bijou Theatre, Tanger Outlets, North Lincoln Hospital Foundation and United Way for partnering to help make this event possible. “Awareness is the first step in creating change and we hope to see a full house,” said Foster.

FAST FACT • Oregon’s job growth in 2013 was much stronger than in the prior two years. In 2013, 37,700 jobs were added, compared with 22,000 in 2012 and 18,400 in 2011. Oregon Employment Department

In recent months the pace of expansion has accelerated. Seasonally adjusted payroll employment rose 4,400 in December, following a revised gain of 4,300 in November. Monthly gains have been the norm for some time now, with gains occurring in 13 of the past 15 months. These payroll employment figures are estimates from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. Job gains in December were concentrated in three of the 11 major industries: professional and business services (1,600 jobs), government (1,200) and other services (900). The standout industry was professional and technical services, which employed a total of 82,200 jobs in December. This industry includes legal services, architectural and engineering services, and computer systems design. Government cut only 1,700 jobs in December, during a month when a loss of 2,900 is expected due

to seasonal factors. State government was close to a record high as it employed 82,700 in December, a gain of 1,200 in 12 months. State education was up 600 jobs in that time, as was the balance of state government. Local government employed only 183,800 in December, which was its lowest December figure in nine years. All three components of local government (local education, Indian tribal, and other local government) were below yearago figures. Other services added 400 jobs when a loss of 500 is the normal seasonal movement for December. The average workweek for Oregon’s private-sector payroll employees was 34.0 hours in December and 33.5 hours in November. In December 2012, the average was 34.1 hours. In December, the average wage was $23.15 per hour for Oregon’s private-sector payroll employees, up from $22.83 in November. Wages have increased 50 cents, or 2.2 percent, from December 2012 when the average was $22.65. These wage gains indicate that hourly earnings power is rising at close to the rate of overall consumer price inflation.

State jobless rate lowest since 2008 Oregon’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped to 7.0 percent in December from 7.3 percent in November, according to the Oregon Employment Department. December marked Oregon’s lowest unemployment rate since August 2008, when the rate was 6.7 percent. The latest Employment Department report shows that in December, Oregon’s jobless rate fell as more people were able to find jobs and there were fewer unemployed. There were nearly 132,000 Oregonians unemployed, compared with approximately 160,000 a year earlier. Lincoln County’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.5 percent in December, essentially unchanged from the previous month at 7.7 percent, but down from the year before at 8.7 percent. The unemployment rate for Lincoln County was higher than the national rate of 6.7 percent. Lincoln County’s unemployment rate ranked as the 17th lowest of Oregon’s 36 counties in December. The rate was stuck above 10 percent for nearly all of 2009, 2010 and 2011. It has declined slowly, but fairly steadily since then. Oregon’s job growth in 2013 was much stronger than in the prior two years. In 2013, 37,700 jobs were added, compared with 22,000 in 2012 and 18,400 in 2011.

s Grant to promote local shopping Shopping locally and keeping your money working within your community has become easier thanks to an Economic Development Grant from Lincoln City’s Urban Renewal Agency. Urban Renewal will offer business memberships, normally $25 or $50 per year, free to any business located within its district. “Buy Local Lincoln County is a powerful tool for businesses and individual members,” Executive Director Guy Faust said. Buy Local is a county nonprofit that has promoted shopping locally for more than five years. Because its first meetings were held at the Newport Chamber of Commerce, it was considered by many to be Newport-based, rather than a countywide organization. “This past year, Buy Local partnered with organizations in Yachats, Lincoln City, Toledo and Nye Beach, among others, to help boost local shopping in the eyes of Lincoln County residents and

visitors,” Faust said. “We’re committed to serving every community in Lincoln County, not any one city.” The new program follows last year’s membership change, which made individual and family memberships, previously $25, free. Now, any Lincoln County family or individual can join the organization for free for one full year. A volunteer organization, Buy Local hopes to enroll 1,000 consumers with the promotion. Faust said member businesses often post incentives or discounts that are available only to Buy Local members. They are posted on the Buy Local website (www. buylocallincolncounty.org) and anywhere businesses choose to promote them. Faust said businesses in the Urban Renewal District can schedule a meeting with Buy Local’s recruitment specialist, Charles Helbig, by calling 541-994-4166. “Or, you can simply wait for Charles to come knocking on your door,” Faust said. “He hopes to visit most of the businesses in the city’s Urban Renewal District in the next few weeks.”

In a typical day, the pools at the Lincoln City Community Center are used by approximately 40 lap swimmers; 50 to 60 seniors for water aerobics; a dozen adults in the arthritis/fibromyalgia exercise classes; 50 swim team kids; 15 to 25 children in swim lessons; and 30 to 40 recreational swimmers. During the busy summer months, the number of lap swimmers, swim lesson students and recreation swimmers easily doubles. With such a wide variety of patrons and activities, it’s a continual challenge to find the most favorable pool temperature. Oregon Parks and Recreation Association recently hosted an online conversation among aquatic facility managers about optimum temperatures for multiuse pools. The vast majority of facilities keep their multiuse pools between 80 and 85 degrees, and the consensus among managers was, “If the majority of customers are not happy, then we’ve got it right.” At the Community Center, we aim for just the opposite — we want to keep all of our customers happy. But, as many local swimmers have discovered over the last couple of months, this is easier said than done. In 2012-13 we kept our fingers crossed as we eked an extra year out of the facility’s original boiler — a 33-year old behemoth affectionately dubbed “Bessie” — while plans were made for a new energy-efficient replacement. The new boiler, a new hot-water holding tank, two new plate heat exchangers and a new central mixing valve were installed in early September 2013. The $142,000 project was completed on time and with only one small change order, thanks to excellent planning and coordination by a city engineer, a Portland-area design firm, a Wilsonville-based contractor and the Community Center facility manager. The new boiler has been operating perfectly; in fact, the cost of natural gas to heat the pool went down 14 percent in the first two months after installation. The project also qualified for a $7,800 incentive rebate from EnergyTrust of

The Lincoln City Community Center Pool. Oregon. The glitch has been coordinating the new boiler, hot-water holding tank and heat exchangers with the Center’s existing operating system. Add a finicky online controller to the equation and the result has been inconsistent water temperatures — and some rather chilly pool water. Community Center employees have been working diligently behind the scenes to get to the source of the problem — pipe by pipe and valve by valve. The engineer, designer and contractor for the boiler project have been consulted, and an expert was recently brought in to check water flows and “balance” the entire system. Unfortunately, adjusting the temperature in a 220,000-gallon pool is not as easy as turning a dial. But, we are close to a solution and have figured out how to maintain a constant temperature while we fine-tune this very complex

system. We strive to keep our main pool between 82 and 84 degrees and our small instructional pool between 92 and 94 degrees, which is the temperature range recommended by the American Red Cross. Colder temperatures are hard on the many senior citizens who use our pools; while warmer temperatures are uncomfortable — and dangerous — for serious lap swimmers (swimming laps in an 85-degree pool is like running when it’s 100 degrees outside). The Community Center staff truly appreciates the patience and understanding of our pool users as we work to resolve our temperature fluctuations Kimberling is director of the Lincoln City Community Center.

Sheriff’s Tips Lincoln County Noise Ordinance By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

The basic rule of the county noise ordinance is one of reasonableness. The ordinance allows Sheriff’s Deputies to investigate complaints of excessive noise throughout the county, with the exceptions of Toledo, Lincoln City and Newport. The ordinance states that Sheriff’s Deputies will determine the reasonableness of the noise in determining whether or not to issue a citation for a violation of the noise ordinance. Deputies have received training and guidance on this issue.

The ordinance states that no • Time of day or night. person shall cause any noise, which • Nature and zoning of the area unreasonably disturbs or annoys where the noise is coming from. another person of normal sensitivity, • Duration of the noise. while the person is inside of • Volume and intensity of a building. Here are some the noise. examples of what could be • Whether the noise is considered unreasonable plainly audible within the noise: affected building. • Loud stereos • Excessively loud vehicle You can still use your exhaust, motor, or other lawn equipment, complete mechanical sound.

Please think of • Musical instruments how the noise you are makThe circumstances ing may affect those who live surrounding the noise shall be and work around you. If a citation examined, taking into consideration is issued for a violation of the noise several factors, including but not ordinance, the penalty imposed by limited to: the court may be up to $500 for the

first violation, and $1,000 for each subsequent violation. If you have to make a noisy repair to your home or vehicle, or otherwise know you’ll be making some noise with a gathering that may disturb your neighbors, some advanced warning from a friendly conversation with the neighbors will likely help everyone get along. Certain noise is exempt from the noise ordinance. Required emergency sirens, emergency vehicles, and approved public gatherings such as sporting events are included in the list of exemptions.

Be alert and be visible GUEST COLUMN Mike Laverty

With the shorter days this time of year, motorists and pedestrians need to be extra alert to see each other in low light situations. As a safety advocate, I know that just a few simple actions can mean the difference between life and death. That’s why I’d like to encourage everyone to put safety first no matter what mode of travel you choose. As drivers, we need to

be alert for pedestrians, especially at intersections and near shopping areas, schools and other popular destinations. Remember, under Oregon law there is a crosswalk at every intersection; stop and stay stopped for pedestrians in crosswalks. Travel at cautious speeds in wet or icy weather and in low-light areas. Stay sober and stay focused. Driving under the influence is illegal and so is texting while driving. And, they both increase your

FAST FACT • In 2012, 60 pedestrians lost their lives in crashes in Oregon chances of harming yourself or someone else. As pedestrians, we need to wear bright or reflective clothing or shoes when walking in low light situations. Folks can’t avoid what they can’t see. If there are no sidewalks or designated pedestrian routes,

walk close to the edge of the road and out of the way of traffic. Walk facing traffic so you can see approaching vehicles and avoid dangers like truck or bus mirrors. Stay sober; walking while impaired increases your chance of being struck. Finally, don’t wear headphones, text or talk on a cell phone while crossing the street. Remember, we can keep ourselves out of harm’s way. Although Oregon is far below the national average for traffic fatalities, 60 pedestrians lost their lives

in crashes in Oregon in 2012. That’s far too many family members, friends and neighbors lost in often avoidable incidents. Together, we must do something to reverse this deadly trend. Join me, and my fellow Oregon Transportation Safety Committee members, in doing your part to help make a difference. Remember to be alert and be visible. Laverty is an Otis resident and chairman of the Oregon Transportation Safety Commission.

Unusual weather increases fire danger, tourism Council From page A1

JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Showers are expected along the Oregon Coast this week compared to the unusual dry, fire danger forecast last weekend. Officials said an unusual combination of low humidity, dry ground fuels, gusty winds and no precipitation led to the high wildfire danger and a Red Flag Warning issued by the National Weather Service for Lincoln, Tillamook and Clatsop counties. A Red Flag Warning means critical fire weather conditions are present or will soon occur. Local fire departments order all burning to cease due to the dangerous conditions. On Friday, Jan. 24, two wildfires broke out along the North Oregon Coast, between Arch Cape and Manzanita. The 274-acre Falcon Fire and the 30-acre Shingle Mill Fire burned in rugged terrain, but were controlled by Monday, Jan. 27. Both fires are believed to have started from logging operations. No homes were evacuated and travel along Highway 101 was not impacted. The Red Flag Warning was canceled on Saturday, Jan. 25, but the concern for

It is really the humidity, the dry ground fuels, and the gusty winds. That’s a dangerous mix.” Shawn Weagle, National Weather Service fire weather forecaster in Portland, said Oregon has seen a very unusual weather pattern over the past several weeks. “The dry conditions that we saw in summer are continuing into this winter,” he said. “We are experiencing a warm, dry, offshore flow that has combined with unusually

dry fuels to produce the Red Flag Warning, which was a very rare event.” He said the mix of conditions is impacting weather across the nation. “We have a persistent pattern with a large blocking high pressure off the Coast that is causing the dry conditions for the Pacific Northwest, and it’s also causing cold and snow for Middle America and the East Coast,” Weagle said. The weather pattern has also affected Oregon Coast’s rainfall this winter. “Typically, during this time of the year, the Coast Range is picking up 10 to 20 inches of rain per month,” Weagle said. “That’s why there is a rainforest feel to the area. But over the past three

months, we’ve only recorded about 10 to 20 inches of rain.” Weagle’s forecast models show a likely return to clear, mild conditions by the weekend. The changing weather has a direct impact on the Lincoln City economy, according to Nonni Augustine, Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce executive director. “At the end of December, when we had cold weather and snow, business was cut short for many local retailers, restaurants and hotels,” she said. “But during January, with days of fog in the Willamette Valley and Portland, we saw more visitors coming to the Coast for the sunny, mild weather.” Augustine said the Portland television news stations also pay a key role in Lincoln City’s visitor count. “When the forecasters show the beautiful sunsets at the Coast, people decide that they can come here, but when the forecasters say we are expecting bad weather, that slows our visitor travel,” she said. “That just shows how weatherdependent we are.” Follow daily weather updates at thenewsguard.com.

A pedestrian activated crosswalk with a rapid flashing light, drainage and landscaping will also be installed. “This will be a two-year construction project that will involve tree and brush clearing, utility relocation, culvert and retaining wall construction, traffic staging, reducing use of traffic lanes, and temporary closures of 29th and 32nd Streets,” said Wolcott. “Like any large project like this, it is always a bit bumpy because it is distracting. People need to hang in there, watch for the workers, be safe and slow down.” According to Wolcott, ODOT has done a good job of collaborating over the past few years with the City to reduce the impacts of the project and balance a design that will improve the areas safety. “Our construction office will be working closely with area businesses to make sure people realize that the Nelscott businesses are open and customers can get into and out of the businesses safely during the work,” he said. Bids for the project go out Feb. 21. Construction is likely to begin in late April. “Right now you have a highway that people can’t walk along,” said Wolcott. “There is no place for pedestrians to cross the highway safely. The highway divides that part of the community from neighbors. So, the improvements are designed to actually encourage people to visit the area by riding bikes or walking and to visit the area businesses and the beach.” Lincoln City Public Works director, Lila Bradley said the addition of a turn lane will reduce the traffic bottleneck in the area. She said the pedestrian crossing improvements are greatly needed. “Once the work is completed, it will be a place were people can go for a walk and to safely and easily visit

Tigers let opportunity slip away Armed with bulletin-board material from a front-page newspaper article reminding readers that his program hasn’t won a league game in nearly six years, Taft girls basketball coach Dan Mock had to cringe Tuesday when he watched his Tigers do just about everything in their power at the most inopportune times to allow the streak to continue. “I’m not going to go as far as to say that we should have won this game,” the four-year coach said Tuesday, Jan. 21, following a 57-44 Oregon West Conference home defeat to Stayton, “but, in many ways, it

was within our reach.” Taft seniors Taylor Adams and Keitra Mason combined for 31 of Taft’s 44 points, but it was the Tigers’ play on the other end of the court that resulted in the team’s 56th straight conference defeat dating to Feb. 21, 2008. Worse, the 57th came just three days later in a 58-11 loss at Philomath. “We had some defensive lapses at real inopportune times that absolutely killed us,” Mock said of Tuesday’s seasonopening league defeat to the Eagles (9-6 overall, 2-0 Oregon West). “Between some of the easy baskets we surrendered, as well as missed free-throw opportunities, the total amount of points we sacrificed

Girls Basketball

was more than the game’s final point differential.” Taft, playing without its tallest player in junior Katie McCardell, who is recovering from a dislocated elbow, kept within striking distance throughout before the porous defense ensued. “I believe our girls have learned from it, and I feel good about holding Stayton to a lower point total the next time we meet [Feb. 7, at Stayton],” Mock said. “I know the girls are really hungry to have another shot against that team.” Perhaps not as famished, however, to take on Philomath again. The Warriors (12-3, 2-0) appear to be the team to beat this season — with their 47-point home win Friday, Jan. 24, over the

Tigers fall short of rare league win JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countryedia.net

Taft High senior Cecil Harvey was clued in on only part of the story Tuesday, Jan. 21, in the Tigers’ Oregon West Conference season opener against Stayton. “I knew they were all good shooters,” he said, ”but I didn’t expect them to be that good.” The Eagles (5-10 overall, 1-1 Oregon West) rained 3-pointers on the Tigers while deploying one of the state’s most active outside shooting attacks for a 67-63 victory to extend Taft’s conference losing streak to 44 games. “They either take a layup or go for 3 and not really much in between,” Taft senior Ian Williams said. The streak reached 45, dating to Jan. 28, 2009, on Friday, Jan. 24, when the Tigers fell to Philomath (11-3, 1-1) 71-49 on the road. “We played great and with a lot of heart,” said freshman starter Christian Chase, who had one of his best shooting games of the season in helping to counter the Eagles’ outside attack. “We just didn’t get all of the shots to drop when we really needed to.” Erratic play in clutch situations has been the Tigers’ curse

for several seasons now, but Tuesday’s game showed that the team might be just around the corner from changing that. “I thought it was the best game we’ve played all year,” firstyear Taft coach Scott Henderson said. “They’re goal is to shoot 50 3’s, and if they make ‘em, they make ‘em. If they don’t, they don’t.” They did. “They just platoon and go, go, go, go, go, go,” Henderson said, “and our kids handled it at times and at times they didn’t. Their goal is to get you confused, scatterbrained, and that’s what took us out of the game at the end — our own little heads.” Execution — or lack thereof when needed most — has proved to be the Tigers’ undoing, their coach and players agreed. “There’s a big difference — and these kids know it — between how we perform and execute and work our tails off in practice and how we execute in games,” Henderson said. “We work hard to do it, but we lack experience, and that’s not an excuse, but we have to learn and learn fast.” Transforming their play on the practice court to game

Boys Basketball

time is the team’s biggest chore, several players said. “We have just got to keep working on execution. That’s our biggest thing,” Harvey said. “If we execute, we win that game.” Henderson said fatigue was not a factor against the swarm of players thrust onto the court by the Eagles throughout the game. “Our kids are well conditioned. We have to be because we don’t have many players [just three seniors],” he said. “Physically, we’re fine. Mentally, there are stretches where we do really well, and stretches where we think we can win and we get helter-skelter, forget things and just go scatterbrained.” “We played pretty well, so we’ve got to build on that,” Williams said. “This year, there are more close games, and we’re starting to learn how to close them out.” Taft (5-9, 0-2) was scheduled to host Central (11-3, 1-1) on Tuesday, Jan. 28 (past print deadline; see thenewsguard. com for results), host Newport (8-7, 1-1) Friday, Jan. 31, and is at Cascade (9-5, 2-0) on Tuesday, Feb. 4. “We’re going to get there,” Harvey said. “This hurts, but it’s early. We’re going to see them again, and we’ve got a good shot against the other league teams, too.”

Tigers a case in point. “There are not a whole lot of positives for us to take away from this game, though I do feel we played fairly well for the better part of the first quarter,” Mock said. The second quarter provided a much different storyline, but a familiar ending. “The start of the second quarter was really disastrous for us in terms of turning the ball over, as we failed to do some of the simple and fundamental things necessary to handle Philomath’s defensive pressure.” Mock said. Taft’s guards, in particular, struggled to maintain control of the ball throughout the quarter, when the Warriors outscored the Tigers, 23-5. “Philomath is a very solid team, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up winning our league this season,” Mock said. Taft was scheduled to host Central (12-2, 1-1) in a league game on Tuesday, Jan. 28, (past

Sports Taft’s Williams making noise on, off court A8

JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

Ian Banth FehringerWilliams is an 18-year-old Taft High senior who plays several sports, earns his spending money working in a glass studio in seclusion in the woods, plays a mean ping pong and has a life-size portrait of Portland Trail Blazers’ star LaMarcus Aldridge on his bedroom wall. Oh, and he’s about to seek a master’s degree in engineering or the like after being accepted to Oregon State University’s honors college. “Sports have always been right up top next to academics for me,” the Taft High soccer, basketball and track star said. With a 3.95 GPA and a score of 1960 on his SAT exam, he’s well on his way to success when his time off the playing field comes to an end. “He goes above and beyond to make things happen,” Taft High Principal Majalise Tolan said. “Ian exemplifies what we would want in any student-athlete.” Son of civic leaders Anne and Buzz Williams, longtime owners of the Alder House glassblowing shop and former Lincoln City Couple of the Year, Ian spends much of his time tutoring others in the classroom. He is teaching others on the court. Now a key figure in the Taft boy’s basketball team’s starting lineup, Williams is coming off a first-team all-Oregon West Conference performance in soccer and will participate in track this spring. He might be restricted to intramural sports in college, but he’s virtually certain to retain his all-star status in the classroom.

Taft High football players ranked second in the state among players from Class 4A schools in cumulative grade point average, trailing McLoughlin by a mere onehundredth of a point with 12 more participants. “It is our team goal to finish in first place in this competition every year, but a secondplace finish in our first year with this goal in place is a very strong start,” Taft Coach James Mick said. “In the Taft Tiger football program, we place a lot of value on academics and being strong community members. Hopefully, we can continue to build on this success.” The Academic All-State Competition is put on by the Dairy Farmers of Oregon, in conjunction with the Oregon Student Activities Association, which compares GPA by sport with other teams in each classification of competition.

“He does not take the easy route for anything, academically or athletically,” Tolan said. “And he’s not only in it for himself, but to see others strive for excellence.” “He’s a smart kid, obviously, a trustworthy kid who’s going to honors college,” Taft JIM FOSSUM/THE NEWS GUARD basketball coach Scott HenTaft High’s Ian Williams has proved to be a leader in athletderson said. “That’s pretty ics and academics. impressive.” Henderson is in his first year coaching Williams, so he has missed his progression on the basketball court, where Mark Williams (no relation) coached him through his junior season. The growth has not been lost on longtime assistant coach Andy Morgan, however. “Mark gave him the confidence he needed the last two years and he became a real offensive threat, particularly from outside, and Ian’s body got a lot stronger in the offseason, and I think with that, came his confidence on the defensive end,” Morgan said. “So, Ian has become quite a bit more of a defensive-minded player.” Morgan says Williams has developed his shot-blocking and rebounding ability and possesses above-average ballhandling abilities that assist him on the offensive end. “I think while he’s always been a good outside player, he’s become an exceptional inside player with a bigger body, so we’re trying to exploit that a little more and have other teams have to play him on the inside because of his athleticism. I think once he really realizes his full potential inside, then his outside game is going to come easier again. But he’s built up, he’s become a lot stronger, and probably a lot more confident because of his size. I think he’s an elite athlete at this point.”

Lincoln County’s birdhouse man JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Bill Revnell likes to uses marbles and glass pieces in his building projects.

Antique furniture restorer Bill Revnell was 50 when he suffered a heart attack. “I needed a break,” he said “That job can be pretty stressful.” Revnell retired in Idaho and looked for something to help him enjoy life and use his skill to keep busy. “I started making birdhouses,” he said. “I had a couple of posts outside my house, and I

put a few of the birdhouses on those posts. Pretty soon, lots of people began stopping by asking to buy the birdhouses.” Revnell priced the birdhouses between $15 and $20. As he received more requests, he began constructing bigger birdhouses, charging more for each one. He said making the houses keeps him at peace. “One of the biggest things is that making the birdhouses gives

me life,” he said. “I can’t stay here and watch TV or play on a computer. I am not that kind of guy.” Revnell moved from Idaho to his current home near Waldport a few years ago and keeps building the birdhouses. He is now selling them for about $100 at the Oregon Coast Aquarium and Touch Stone Market in Yachats. “But the reality is I get only a small profit

after I have to pay to sell them and for my supplies,” he said. Revnell collects his supplies from local artists, metal yards, secondhand stores and recycling centers. “All of the houses are abstracted or themed,” Revnell said. “I use a lot of marbles and beads, and, if I can find a wooden duck or a seagull, I make a background with a lighthouse. I will make just See BIRDHOUSES Page B3

Local cook-offs hot visitor draw JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Clam chowder, fish taco, wild mushroom and jambalaya cookoffs are proving to be a success in enticing visitors to Lincoln City, according to the Lincoln City Visitors & Convention Bureau. The events began in 2007, with Bureau Director Sandy Pfaff coordinating the first Chowder Cook-off. “The cook-offs began as a new way to engage visitors, highlighting new culinary experiences, local ingredients and promoting local chefs and restaurants,” said Scott Humpert, the Bureau’s public relations coordinator.

Coast Moments

A day at the beach In My Own Words By Yuriko Higashi

Hi, my friend Bobby DeCastro, my daughter and I visited Lincoln City for the day on Jan. 20, because we had heard about your Finders Keepers event. We were pretty excited to scour the beach in

hopes of finding some “treasure.” We walked for about four hours but didn’t find anything. But that by itself couldn’t ruin our day. Your beaches are beautiful and the day was perfect. This photo is courtesy of Bobby Decastro, who captured this amazing shot and I wanted to show appreciation to my friend for capturing such a great shot for my daughter and I to remember our day spent in

Lincoln City. Come February we will be coming back in hopes of participating once again in Finders Keepers! Coast Moments and In My Own Words are features presented by The News Guard. Send us your Coast Moments photos and your story ideas for In My Own Words and we will share them with our readers. Email to jruark@countrymedia.net.

Coastal gardening brings challenges, gratification Guest Column By Denise Ruttan

Gardening on the oftenextreme Oregon Coast might seem intimidating and risky. But Carla Albright, a Master Gardener trained by the Oregon State University Extension Service who lives just north of Tillamook, wants to reassure you that it is possible to grow a wonderful garden — even if you live next door to the wild Pacific. “There are some things you can’t do very well on the Coast, like tomatoes,” Albright said. “But it can be a great place to grow a garden with shrubs, perennials and hardy annuals. You can grow a lot of things. It’s not warm, but it doesn’t get too cold. The growing season lasts from mid-February to early to mid-October.” Fierce Coastal gusts, however, can take the wind out of your garden’s sails in a hurry. “Our biggest problem is wind,” Albright said. “We get it from the south in the winter and from the north in the summer. There’s a colder wind in the summertime and it can seem quite gusty. We’ve gotten gusts from 45 miles per hour up to 65 miles per hour. You have to be aware of that when you plan a garden and allow for wind breaks.” To shield your most vulnerable plants from the wind, picket fencing can help. Large, wind-hardy plants like escalonia, rhododendra and euonymus can act as a living barrier to squalls. Also take time when designing a garden to observe the directions of the wind, the sun and the shade in your yard. Though inland residents might view the massive stretch of land bordering the Pacific Ocean as simply “the coast,” it’s actually made up of countless microclimates. A “microclimate” is the climate of a very small area that differs from the surrounding area. Oregon’s coast encompasses three hardiness zones as classified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Zone 8B (Astoria to Florence), Zone 9A (Florence to Cape Blanco State Park) and Zone 9B (Cape Blanco State Park to Brookings.) “There are even microclimates within a garden within the length of a season,” Albright said. “My garden has four to five microclimates.” If you want to plant ornamentals, Albright’s picks for coastal superstars include azalea, heather, lavender, Mexican sage, Hosta shrubs, Choisya shrubs and Japanese maples. Vegetables can be trickier. “You have to really watch out for that north wind in the summer and you need a lot of sun,” Albright said. “I’ve found cherry or grape tomatoes do better because they don’t take as long to ripen. You want short-season vegetables that take 75-85 days to reach maturity.” Short-season veggies include mustard, lettuce, spinach, kale, Brussel sprouts, fava beans, endive, peas, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, beets, parsnips, beans, squash, chard, potatoes, onion, radish and cucumbers. Albright recommends installing raised beds rather than planting directly in sandy soils. Compost helps improve the coast’s acidic and sometimes very alkaline soils. Greenhouses are also a good option for extending the growing season. Additionally, you can use covers made out of light, permeable material such as plastic to shield plants from the cold and rain – but make sure they are secured from the wind. Albright published a book, “Coastal Gardening in the Pacific Northwest: From Northern California to British Columbia” with Taylor Trade Publishing that is available for purchase on Amazon at http:// amzn.to/1a8aocf. A guide from OSU Extension and partners, “Short-Season Vegetable Gardening,” is available for free at http://bit.ly/OSU_ShortSeason. Denise Ruttan is with the OSU Extension Service. She can be reached at 541-737-3380 or denise.ruttan@oregonstate.edu, @OregonStateExt. For more information about coastal gardening, contact the Master Gardeners at your county OSU Extension office.

Cook-off From page B1

While Humpert said it is nearly impossible to determine the revenue impact of the cook-offs, the Bureau’s surveys reveal they are a popular draw to Lincoln City. “Chowder is our largest, this year drawing roughly 2,500 people compared to the 547 that attended the Jambalaya Cook-off,” he said. “About 50 to 70 percent of cook-off attendees are overnighters, 20 to 30 percent are day-trippers and about 10 to 15 percent are local. Overnighters spend approximately three times as much as a day-tripper.” Humpert said social media activity has helped spread the word about the festive food events. “As more people are learning about cooking, it has become a word-ofmouth thing,” he said. “More people are on social media, helping these cook-offs to have a track record.” The Bureau’s sixth annual Mardi Gras-style Jambalaya Cook-Off will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Culinary Center, 801 S.W. Highway 101, fourth floor of the Lincoln City City Hall. Jambalaya, one of the Creole Cookery’s hallmarks, varies widely from cook to cook. It always contains rice, and a variety of other ingredients may be used, including tomatoes, onions, green peppers and almost any

kind of meat, poultry or fish. The Lincoln City competition will include chefs from throughout the Northwest competing to take home one of two titles: “Best Jambalaya,” which will be judged by a panel of professional judges, and “People’s Choice,” in which the public will make the final call. Participating chefs for this year’s event include Jocelyn Kelly of Vancouver, Wash. Gumbo Goddess Catering, Jacob Moore of Pacific City’s Pelican Pub and Brewery, and Jack Strong from Chinook Winds Casino Resort, Greg Hill from Deli 101, Steve Williamson from Roadhouse 101, Ethan Granberg from Rockfish Bakery and Jason Jobe from Vivian’s Restaurant all of Lincoln City. Professional judging will be provided by Louisiana native Scott Salmons of Depoe Bay, long time chef, owner of Blackfish Café in Lincoln City and co-founder of the Culinary Center in Lincoln City, Rob Pounding, and Dorinda Goddard of Dockside Charters in Depoe Bay who has been participating in the Jambalaya Cook-Off since its inception. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample a variety of different recipes and discover what makes Jambalaya such a popular dish. Admission to the Jambalaya Cook-Off is free, with samples available

about whatever people ask for if I can find the junk to make it.” Often Revnell will give away the birdhouses. “Especially to elderly people,” he said. “It gives them a little bit of joy in their life to watch the birds come in and out of the houses. The main thing is I still make a difference in my life while making something that people enjoy. The more you give, the more you get back. That is my philosophy, and it

makes me happy.” Revnell said he also enjoys carving and has decorated his yard with wood eagles and pelicans perched on posts. He said he follows no rules for building the birdhouses or caring out animals. “I make them the best that I can,” Revnell said. “If something goes wrong, I just work around that. My advice to others that might want to try this is to learn how to knock down those limitations and keep growing and learning.”

Lindsey Lou & the Flatbellys

Toe-tapping time at the Cultural Center JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countymedia.net

Music will be echoing from the Lincoln City Cultural Center this week with performances by Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, and Matthew Price at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1. To honor Lindsey Lou’s four bearded bandmates, men with chin hair can attend the concert for $1 off the ticket price. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door, on sale now at the box office (open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Tuesday), or by calling 541-994-9994. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.

Event organizers said Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys have jumped into the forefront of today’s progressive roots music movement. Distinct vocals, tight harmonies, instrumental expertise and creative arrangements are all essential characteristics of their sound. The groups latest album is “Release Your Shrouds.” Matthew Price, performing Saturday, is called a funny “folk icon” by acoustic fans in the Willamette Valley. In 2010, Price independently released his debut album, “Stranded.” In 2013, Price joined with vocalist and violinist, Christiana Zollner, and released a

Matthew Price second CD titled, “Gallon House.” Doors to the Center’s auditorium open at 6:30 p.m. for Price’s show, which includes two sets and an intermission.

Gets Results! MAINTENANCE

Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door. For tickets and information about the two concerts, call 541-994-9994, or visit lincolncity-culturalcenter.org.

If the foreclosure sale goes through, the new owner will have the right to require you to move out. Before the new owner can require you to move, the new owner must provide you with written notice that specifies the date by which you must move out. If you do not leave before the move-out date, the new owner can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing.

If the new owner wants to move in and use this property as a primary residence, the new owner can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even though you have a fixed term lease with more than 90 days left. You must be provided with at least 90 days’ written notice after the foreclosure sale before you can be required to move. A bona fide tenant is a residential tenant who is not the

L A C E S

borrower (property owner) or a child, spouse or parent of the borrower, and whose rental agreement: • Is the result of an arm’slength transaction; • Requires the payment of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property, unless the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a federal, state or local subsidy; and • Was entered into prior to the date of the foreclosure sale. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY BETWEEN NOW AND THE FORECLOSURE SALE: RENT YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL THE PROPERTY IS SOLD OR UNTIL A COURT TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE. SECURITY DEPOSIT You may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord as provided in ORS 90.367. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent

Public Notices you owe your current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The new owner that buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out after 90 days or at the end of your fixed term lease. After the sale, you should receive a written notice informing you that the sale took place and giving you the new owner’s name and contact information. You should contact the new owner if you would like to stay. If the new owner accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the new owner becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise: • You do not owe rent; • The new owner is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf; and •

Public Notices You must move out by the date the new owner specifies in a notice to you. The new owner may offer to pay your moving expenses and any other costs or amounts you and the new owner agree on in exchange for your agreement to leave the premises in less than 90 days or before your fixed term lease expires. You should speak with a lawyer to fully understand your rights before making any decisions regarding your tenancy. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR DWELLING UNIT WITHOUT FIRST GIVING YOU WRITTEN NOTICE AND GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU.
